The Individual on trial

The individual on trial

by Jon Rappoport

February 20, 2017



PROSECUTOR: Your Honor, I have a document written by the defendant.

JUDGE: Why do you present it here?

PROSECUTOR: Because it reeks of ideals which the State does not support. It speaks of the individual.

JUDGE (choking on his coffee): The individual? That old tune? I thought we’d gotten rid of it. Read it to me now.

PROSECUTOR (reading): “As always, I return to the individual.

“Without him, there is no meaning to civilization or the future.

“It was once established that society and civilization existed to liberate him, to remove the shackles of the State from him, so he could pursue his own destiny. This victory was massively opposed by combines, monopolies, and cartels, who seek control over populations.

“It is now up to the individual to stake out his own territory, his own power, his own virtue.

“In doing so, he can settle on little ambitions or great ones. He can develop his mind as a seeking instrument of penetration, or he can absorb himself in shallow ideas. He can make his way along huge trails of adventure, or he can occupy himself with ordinary details of a huddled and mundane life.

“To say these choices are his is obvious. But he has to make them.

“He can imagine and envision tiny advances, or he can view great ascendance.

“He can go down with any number of small ships, or he can build a vessel for himself that will take him across an ocean of invention.

“He can discover what he already knows, or he can create new knowledge.

“He is building the reach of his own spirit, or he is living in a welfare state of mind.

“He is discovering the immortal impulses that reside beyond the language of the crowd, or he is trapping himself in the crowd.”

JUDGE: Treasonous, to say the least. The author is obviously psychotic. Where did he get such ideas?

PROSECUTOR: I do not know, sir.

JUDGE: It must have been the Russians.

PROSECUTOR: I hadn’t considered that. Yes, it must be so. Of course.

JUDGE: We’ve caught them at this before. They recruit dupes and being them under their control. They’re trying to undermine our way of life.

PROSECUTOR: I recommend a life sentence for the defendant.

JUDGE: A life of silence in an institution. It is so ordered.

PROSECUTOR: Perhaps we could turn him.

JUDGE: Make him into a double agent? I’ll leave that to the psychiatrists. If they believe they can achieve it, they could set him adrift in our cities and let him attract others to his cause. He could help us identify enemies.

PROSECUTOR: A brilliant idea, Your Honor.

JUDGE: Do you remember names like George Washington, Tom Paine, Thomas Jefferson?


JUDGE: They were Russian spies who tried to subvert the United States at the birth of the nation. They spread vile ideas and fake news to the people.

PROSECUTOR: Fake news? That’s a capital crime.

JUDGE: Indeed. It took our leaders many years to discover the plot.

PROSECUTOR: Thank goodness we now have a strong court system.

JUDGE: The loopholes have been eliminated. Next case!

    The trials of the awakening individuality are the temptations to self-division… by which to more fully and more clearly embrace and extend the gift of individuality to all – and so to keep it.

    A self divided against itself sees everything through the kaleidoscope of its own fear-figmented imagination.

    The symbols and images of an idolised self battle with each other.
    Because of what they are being used for.

    Sovereign will, Is.

    The substitution mind of ‘will-less-ness’ operates an exclusion zone of coercive deceit, claims power by denial and rejection, and validation from control and subjection. But narrative control is not a true unity of purpose, so much as a mask or presentation of power over conflicted and denied self.

    Joy in Life is of an innocence of being. Nothing is forced – but freely given and freely received. Individuality is of unified purpose that the mind made to limit can be aligned to extend. But first it has to relieved of its role as judge.

    • will iam says:

      “But first it has to (be) relieved of its role as judge”…..therein lies the source of power for no ‘one’ can relieve the mind of its role as judge but ones own self!……. but with power comes responsibility as that can never be separate.

      It is impossible to give power away, therefore ANY attempt to regain it is a waste of time and energy because one never did that in the first place. The power that thinks that it is around here however, would never want to tell any one that, because the belief that it can be given away keeps the masses heading to the voting booths from sea to shining sea, and searching outside ones self for what it has never ever lost or has given away in the first place.

      It also keeps a fragment of self, humoring its self, with identity, and unfortunately that identity is the price the individual pays by compromising its integrity.

      The “we” must learn that power and responsibility is not, can never be and will never be separated. When the individual took on the ‘we’ identity however it made that separation, and as long as the ‘we’ want to play the victim game its quest will never be fulfilled because it is impossible to fulfill.

      The ‘we’ doesn’t own much but at least it owns its own powerlessness! ROFL!!

      Until the “victim” mind screw changes, things will pretty much be the same around this place, where ever ‘this place’ may be, just a different decoration on the same tired old pig. IMAO

      Have a good day!

      • arcadia11 says:

        lol. but the victim position is so compelling. it is the way station, a step upward, from which most refuse to move.
        i have spent time there and i admit that it is comfortable.
        for a while. i think that the need to transition to the next level cannot be overstated. even if you have to fake it till you make it, just…move. because movement begets movement. it is so worth the effort.

      • binra says:

        Of course everything is the same while you wait for everyone else to change!

        • will iam says:

          Unless you are the lead dog the view never changes.

          • binra says:

            Everything ALWAYS changes – but the mind can be so programmed as to believe it is a static identity. Hence the matrix-mind of : “There is nothing new under the Sun” and the Awakened appreciation: Behold I make all things new!

            You are free to use mind in place of creative freedom – as IF your source of self and reality. But once you en-trance your identification – you are free only along the lines of the thought you accept true as your self/reality.

            Thus to shift or awaken ‘upstream’ to the embracing perspective is the freedom to release by NOT using or investing identification in the mind-limiting thought.

            Identity can be played with in fantasy but is set or conditioned by reaction. Once you react as if something is true, you set it as your default.

            The fantasy of the lead dog – or the winner or the hero of the dream is always the same outcome – There is nothing new under the Sun. Yes we all have different stratagems of self-specialness (that reinforce by alliance AND by conflict). But a getting device is a getting device and a hollowed our life is a wasted life. Sure you can get stuffed by illusions and play the movie in your head.

            Why doesn’t a poor (impoverishing) result immediately bring a questioning back to the source of which it comes? Because fragmentation of mind is the strategy of persisting forcefully against and overriding the messengers of our true being. Such that the messengers of the need for healing at Source are personified in projection, demonized as the ’cause’ of evil and so judged and defended against – if not pre-emptively destroyed. Welcome to the machine of thought reversal. The exit is the en-trance – and the sword that denies you is your own cutting into an unconsciousness in the belief you alone are the judge – and so you are judged to be alone – isolated, cut off behind enemy lines – abandoned, and left to die in a squalid failure to create your dream.

            The willingness to override your own true being, is the same that overrides others and your living world. Therefore the opening to a co-creative relationship – of the same movement of being, is the release of the blind urge to get in front.
            No one is as fast as that which is always and has therefore already arrived. Anyone can seem a big fish in their pool until the tide comes in. Gratifiction is a substitute for gratitude – which is always a relationship and never alone.

            The true will is denied to attention by the substitution of mind. But all the ’emotion’ of such mind is likewise substitute for true feeling intimacy. Its just part of the matrix of the denial of your true will so as to play out fantasy and make it real to your focus of attention.

            If you can see that the overriding of true will is by the devices of coercion and deceit – then you can be the leading edge of uncovering such blocks to joy in life in your thought – even if alerted by reaction to similar in others. But this leading edge is re-opening into an intimacy of being – though the matrix-mind tells you that you are losing everyone and everything by persisting in de-tuning from the jamming signal. Why would we want to listen to fear but to persist in jamming a true appreciation of what fear is. Fear is a lack of love and therefore a call for love. The word love is adulterated by abuse. You have to open Feeling to know. The mind – in its right timing will follow. Reverse the reversal without attempts to catch up, get in front or make the grade. Open the inner eye. Look upon the horror so as to be free to look beyond it, and open to appreciation of Life anew.

            The short-cut is : don’t take the long-cut! And the journey truly lived – is the freedom within your ‘destination’. What is the active purpose in your heart? Be willing to yield to it unafraid – for anything NOT true is the fear that you are NOT you – and fear, given creative control – is a self-fulfilling prophecy. So be ye perfect in the knowing and owning of your purpose – which is never truly lost but only covered by fear and guilt driven division.

            • will iam says:

              “A hollowed out life is a wasted life” …….IS A JUDGEMENT, how is it not?

              The ‘world’ is a complicated place, this is why you would be wise to approach it simply.

              Intend the short cut.

    That was funny. And not funny at all at the same time.

    Paul McCartney – Fool On The Hill Live

    • From Quebec says:

      ‘But the fool on the hill
      Sees the sun going down
      And the eyes in his head
      See the world spinning round
      He never listens to them
      He knows that they’re the fools
      They don’t like him'”

  6. John says:

    This country no longer values the Constitution. The left mocks the rule of law and the MSM applauds them for doing it.

    To the left, evil is now relative and their outrage has become selective. Accountability and responsibility go together but the two no longer exist. Oh maybe they now exist in an inverse reality where good men like General Flynn are forced to step aside. While treasonous tyrants like Obama and Clinton are given passes.

    Until we fight back hard, virtue and justice will never return to this Republic. Trump must keep moving forward and continue to fight hard.

    This cancer on the left is metastasizing and soon will implode. It is almost there, please do not let them off the hook. This evil fascist liberal disease must become marginalized. It is the only way we can return to a society based on truth, liberty and the Constitution. The spotlight must continue to shine upon this great evil.

    When the damn breaks, this extreme Marxist leftism will be drowned for good. Globalism needs to be beaten down where it can not ever get up again.

    • Michael says:

      Society has never been based on truth, liberty and the constitution.
      Elitism has feigned it was based on those ideals.
      Every body I know or grew up with or talked too, was a wage slave…who never got his just reward.
      2017 has just gotten worse, now we are $4000 per family a year poorer for carbon taxes.
      Next comes a breathing tax. They will be happy when they eliminate money completely.

    Silly prosecutor and judge, the founders weren’t Russians, they were Freemasons, just as the two of you likely are.
