The last murder trial

The last murder trial

by Jon Rappoport

May 12, 2014

June 23, 2041. Bank robbery. Thirty customers gunned down by the robber inside the bank. Murder trial.

The defense lawyer calls eight physicists to the stand. They all testify that: a) the brain rules and directs all human activity; b) the brain is entirely composed of tiny particles which possess absolutely no free will; c) there is no evidence that any combination of these particles produce free will.

Therefore, the defense argues, the accused robber cannot be found guilty. He wasn’t choosing to kill those 30 people. His brain demanded it. In fact, there is no “he.” The brain is the person.

The prosecution asserts that “everybody knows there is free will.” So some combination and interaction of the particles that make up the brain must be producing it.

The defense counters: “Claiming something must be true because everybody knows it is, is absurd.”

The jury deliberates and concludes that the robber is innocent, because he had no control over his actions.

At a press conference, the district attorney states, “Accepting this verdict is accepting that guilt for any crime under the sun is impossible. Is that what we want?”

The President addresses the nation. “It’s time we finally wake up to the fact that no one is really guilty. Don’t worry, be happy. Good night, and good luck.”

In reviewing the case, the US Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, rules: “We must rewrite the Constitution to catch up with physics. There is no free will, there is no freedom, there is no guilt.”

The Pope issues a statement: “God will take the place of free will.”

The president of The Technocracy Society writes: “When every human brain on the planet is irretrievably hooked up to the Big Brain Computer, no one will ever again mention free will. Everyone will have titanic wisdom, in which case, what would we need freedom for?”

Pastor Mike Goober, head of the New Age All and Everything Commission, echoes the President: “Don’t worry, be glorious. The Universe will take care of us. There are no problems. Keep smiling.”

However, a large segment of the US population fails to grasp the import of the brain-particle-no-free-will formulation. Over the next two years, 30 states secede from the Union.

Ha-ha, could never happen. None of this could ever happen. Maybe not, but a great deal of drug, brain, and genetic research is already proceeding on the assumption that the brain is everything and there is no free will. Which means: the true objective of the research is reprogramming the human being, so he will act and think on the basis of principles determined by “those in charge.”

Those in charge, of course, pump out definitions of what is normal and good and happy and healthy and cook “the science” to make it all appear legitimate.

    Yep, variations of this are already being used by defense lawyers to get accused rapists off the hook.

  2. It is I only says:

    Don’t laugh!
    See the trial of the scum psycho Pistorious!
    A Jahoo is always exonerated!

    Free Will, eh? OK, let’s play. Why don’t the thirsty and hungry people in Africa just “will” to have water and food?

    Oh, that’s different! No. It isn’t. There is no such thing as Free Will. Every living creature is a product of two things: Its instincts (DNA/or whatever) and its influences (weather, family, culture, nutrition, etc.)

    I’m not saying that humans can’t hold a murderer to account for the sake of justice, but in doing so, they are merely acting out an unavoidable (yet complex) reaction to an unpopular action. When a dog barks at another dog, is he demonstrating his Free Will and considered opinion? Or is he merely acting out his instincts in a simple situation? To ask the question is to answer it!

    God set up a very complicated set of bowling pins one day. He launched his ball at them, and the pins have been colliding and banging around ever since. Free Will, indeed!

    • AP Ryan says:

      And yet, the bowling pin analogy does nothing for the phenomenon of something like synchronicity. You appear to be operating under the assumption that science is complete and that physics and those things that act on the known five senses are all there are. Explain dark matter. Explain wave-particle duality. Where in your brain can you find the boogey man eliciting real cold sweats? Whatever your answers, it could likely still be asked, “well how does THAT work?” or just as well, “Why should that be?” Funny that you mention God. At the root of the mechanics of Nature being clung to here, there was initially an act of what? Free Will perhaps? What are the implications of that in a fractal Universe? There seem to be a series of irreducible working dualities at play that can’t yet, if ever, be explained, only observed and described. By that logic, God and the bowling pins appear now to be inseparable. To attempt to mold a society, harvest a planet, etc. around a, probably deliberately, incomplete image (science) of these workings is possibly treasonous.

    Dear Jon
    I think you had a “finger problem” when you wrote this. The date should be 2014, not 2041. Reason? Pretty much the same is happening in the Oscar (Blade Runner) trial in my neck of the woods, as we speak. If you’ve followed it at all I’d appreciate your perspective.
