The world is not you

The world is not you

by Jon Rappoport

July 10, 2017

You meet a person who talks about elites’ war on the population, and this person, you realize, is doing two things: he’s speaking the truth; but he’s also canceling out his own life. It’s strange. It’s as if, in all his truth telling, he’s left a hole, and that hole is himself. The balance is gone. But it’s more than that. The decay and the disintegration of society is his excuse for his own absence. His own absence, even to himself.

You try to imagine what would happen if 100,000 people like him joined together in a great cause, and won. What would they do? It occurs to you that they wouldn’t suddenly reconstitute their own lives. They wouldn’t know how.

They wouldn’t be able to assert the value of the individual. They’d laid that aside and lost it along the way.

Societies and civilizations, if they have vitality, would be dedicated to the freedom and power and independence of the individual—and restoring THAT would be a noble cause.

When, in 1776, the American colonists declared independence, what was it for? What was the central core idea, the very best idea? And later, when the Constitution was written and ratified, what was the bottom line?

Liberation?

If so, for whom would that liberation be confirmed, for whom would it be acknowledged and protected?

Everyone, as a group? Or every individual?

As the decades after 1776 rolled on, and as more and more corruption set in, it became easier to think about the group than about the individual. It became easier for the individual to think about the group, rather than himself—in any profound way.

We are now living in the Time of the Blob. The Great Cheese Melt. Humans are perceived as groups. It’s a cultural imperative. Which group is preferred over which other group? Is the Cheddar Blob better than the Mozzarella Blob? Which side should one fight on?

From 1982-2001, I worked as a freelance reporter. When my articles were published, they appeared under the banner of a media organization. I gave it little thought, except when I couldn’t publish a piece because it was too controversial for the tastes and biases of editors. But once I broke away from that system and started my own site, I quickly realized that I was absolutely doing my own work, and I was the ultimate decision maker. And then I began to coalesce my ideas about The Individual.

Where is he? What are his best dreams?

Why is the culture trying to grind up the life-force of the individual?

Who will stand against THAT?

If so-called liberal institutions of higher learning suddenly dispensed with every shred of propaganda about groups and favored groups, what would they be left with? How many professors would be able to teach even an hour of coherent substance?

When you boil down the collectivist view of existence, it is a massive fraud. Persons pass, from mind to mind, empty ideas about The Group. The absence of these ideas’ true content is not a problem to them, because the sole action of passing and transmitting and “sharing” is the key feature. If that is culture, a donkey is a space ship pilot.

It always seemed to me that a person’s unique character and talent and desire were the foundation of a life. It always seemed to me that surrendering this foundation was a terrible mistake.

In a real culture, whatever can be done, voluntarily, to empower individuals to build and invent on that foundation is the central premise.

In the process of advancing such a culture, the individual would never lose sight of himself and the future he envisions. He would never lose sight of his deepest dreams. How could he? That is what he stands for, for himself and others.

    This is so Beautifully stated, Jon.
    It seems to always narrow down to the simple fact that we humans have reversed cause and effect. We think we are the effect of the world when instead we are the Cause of the world.
    And there is only One Cause and it’s always You!!!

    Is that so, Jon?
    Please explain in explicit terms, not more cloudy mumbo jumbo or vaguely antagonistic rhetoric just how that is accurate. I fail to see how attempting to expose the fraud of authority and demand people unify to take action against these intraspecific kleptoparasites requires the cancelling of my own life. I’m one of the people your supposedly aiming your cross hairs at in this article and I take major exception to your arrogance on this matter. I think a cleaning of your lens is in order because the perspective is out of alignment.

    If an individual has put in 15 years of research, questioning, corroborating, testing himself, challenging everything he knows, never stopping to get closer to that seemingly illusory “truth”, and then on his journey shares that knowledge with every single person he meets, every day, no individual escaping his attempts to elevate their awareness…. How am I absent unto myself? How is attempting to break down false paradigms and false religious beliefs anything but am attempt to empower every individual I meet?

    How dare you throw out blanket statements like that. Here is what I love. Making alcohol, making soap, jerky, discussing voluntaryism, shooting guns, and similar things of that nature. You tell me how I’m going to open a brew pub in my backyard in Arvada, Colorado when the board zoned it residential and States I cannot produce any product for consumption or commerce outside of my physical house? The one place where I could set up a neighborhood craft brew and small eatery is so laden with regulation and prohibitions, that I cannot afford any other option. Not with a mandated $560 monthly child support for a child I see 20% of the time and whose mother uses him as a tool to punish me, a mortgage, truck payments, property taxes, and the list continues. Do you know how much a liquor license costs? There is a huge upfront application fee that is non refundable if the city, county, or state refuses to Grant it.
    Literally, I have to borrow half a million to get something going in another location, with 25% down cash from investors in order to get the loan.

    Oh, I could move right? Wrong. We snuck into a 300k house by the skin of our teeth and it’s only 1000 square feet. We needed family assistance to cover the down payment because my original money was spent fighting to keep me son from being stolen to New York City by his mother.
    That’s Denver metro, where my son resides and where my life is established with my fiance. What options do I have to pursue my passion without sinking myself into enormous debts?
    I just love how people make blanket statements as if they are so wise without factoring how the system limits the physical options of the individual to fully express tier individuality, and then chastise is because the external restraints are nearly insurmountable.

    Nonsense. Sure, I made mistakes but having my son was not one. He is the best thing to happen to me regardless of the stress inflicted by the other parent. But that decision significantly limits my abilities to pursue other passions because of time and financial limitations.

    Regarding my individuality and spirit, I’m on a journey to grasp as much of that as I can and to share empowerment of self with others, so tell me where the hole is.
    I appreciate so much of your wisdom and dedication, insight and perspective, but every so often you go and say some extremely ignorant garbage.

      I understand perfectly what you are saying here. Because Jon put in 25 years doing the same thing.

      I believe in the power of idividuals, but sometimes, just like you, I do not understand what Jon is really saying.

      For instance, Trump is an indiviudual who created great things and a great live for himself, and now he wants to help other to reach their goals.

      I see nothing wrong with that.

    • Greg C. says:

      HL: Read Don Quixote, and ask yourself if you see some of yourself in that character. When you decide on a dream, why choose one that is so impossible, like opening up a brewery without realist financing and with the expectation of no government regulation? Maybe it is because you can always blame someone else when you can’t achieve it, and then write about to the world in general.

      • Michael says:

        Greg C
        What he’s tilting at windmills, I don’t think so Greg.

        Why is his dream impossible, dream big and imagine big, the answers will come…you have to see it in all its detail. right down to very sand on the shuffleboard tables.

        Maybe your is the lobster philosophy and you wish to drag him back in the pot with you Greg, So many times I hear ‘what’ words like yours to young people. And your an educator, arn’t you? A music teacher, right?

        That’s not a fair assumption you make…but off course your holding a grudge. And predicting his future.

        “Maybe it is because you can always blame someone else when you can’t achieve it, and then write about to the world in general.”

        Actually it was a really cheap shot. Greg

        • Greg C. says:

          We need to choose our dreams and battles with some kind of sense. It makes no sense to let them choose us as we wander through life.

          I’ve seen all kinds of young people with a false sense of what they can attain in music – they don’t really hear themselves, and they don’t listen to their teacher. They are filled with “dreams.” They get angry when anyone tries to show them what they lack, or tell them that they have no special ability. They live in their own bubble.

          Somehow, they got the notion that whatever they dream, they can attain through further dreaming and wishing, by “believing in themselves.” What nonsense. They turn out disillusioned, thinking that the universe is against them – their dream was real, but unattainable not through any fault of their own. It is everyone else who failed to recognize their special talent. They end up working in Starbucks, still believing in their dream, waiting for the tides of fate to change. They imagine that they will start practicing as soon as someone gives them that break.

          I’ve seen it happen, and HL’s complaints reminded me of those students.

    • Michael says:

      Are you noticing a pattern yet?

      I like what you wrote, bravo. If anything you empowered by your own voice. You got me listening.

      • honestliberty says:

        Thanks Michael,
        It’s a work in progress. I’ve got that east coast and European Catholic blood in me so I get testy when I feel personally attacked. But that also means I love to hear myself talk. We’re born fighters and I am trying to shake that or at least provide more attempts at cooperation in life.
        I’m definitely recognizing a pattern in some perspectives here, and I’m doing my best to remain polite. I think it really highlights the fact that we are all individuals yet it seems so many of us still desire to group together. Call that nature? I dunno.

        Maybe it is our nature to seek conflict as well. I can’t help but laugh at the way we all seem to take comfort when others agree with us, myself included.

        Absolutely, I believe the individual is most important because the whole notion of the collectivists’ Utopia is built upon sand; it’s impossible to have a healthy, thriving group when it comes at the cost of the individual. It’s nonsense.

        But, I’m rambling. As far as it appeared, I wrote my second comment immediately after my first but it fell many posts later. I take full responsibility for my errors and blunders was the point. For someone to say I’m setting my sights too high by wanting to open a small business where I sell the product of my own labor is laughable. That’s exactly the mindset from which I’m trying to pull people away.

        Low overhead, small batches, selling the things I love to make on my own property so others can enjoy my passions as well, and mutually benefit…I fail to see how that is lofty or whatever it is Greg believes.

        And Greg, let’s be honest with ourselves. Go look at my comment history, you’ll find consistency. You’ll also find some emotional immaturity and preachiness, but I’ve always advocated personal responsibility not only for everyone, but especially myself. So you want to tell me I just want to blame others for my shortcomings? Or is reality more likely that I’m friggin pissed that others are so weak and lack control they feel the need to control others and therefore have built legitimate major obstacles to the individual? And since I’m being honest, will you? Are you so great and perfect that you have all the answers? Do you not err on occasion? What’s that quote about the log in one’s eye?

        Let’s talk about my life real quick and see if you think I’m just blaming people, or whether i take responsibility for my actions. I’m criticising weak behavior and expecting more from individuals, and that isn’t comfortable for most. And you know what? I operate from weakness at times and I think that is inexcusable.

        I an not a statist, but I was forced to go through the court system to stay in my 2.5 year old son’s life. Talk about an emotionally and financially draining experience, where one man felt he possessed the authority to decide whether my child would remain in Colorado. Think about that. Well, thank God he recognized it truly was in my son’s best interest because now I’m in his life, but only 20% of the calendar year. Every other weekend and opposing Wednesdays overnight. That’s it. Oh, and his mother fights me on everything, including threatening to withhold him from my one 5 overnight vacation per year. She tried to paint me as unfit because I have reservations about pasteurized milk and vaccination. The judge said “we’re not talking about vaccines, I’ve read the information and there is nothing to support vaccines are dangerous. End of discussion” that’s the court system Greg. Blaming? Absolutely. There is no excuse for that behavior from a judge. He kept telling me my information was invalid “just because you read it on the internet”. Etc. Logical fallacy after logical fallacy.

        Let’s see, what else? I left PA in my mid 20’s for Colorado, on my own and it took me three times to make it. That sounds like determination and grit.
        I work a dangerous job on high rises around a bunch of dangerous criminals basically who have little regard for morality.
        I’ve busted my hump to build a healthy credit score, have one rental house and another with my fiance, a nice truck, hunting property, and a few tools/guns/necessities to provide for me and my family. I work long hours in the elements and I still don’t energy to rub my woman’s shoulders at night. I’m a real man whose accomplished more in 34 years than most have in a lifetime, so your petty accusations… Hold on to those because you look foolish.

        So what’s my ridiculously long winded point? You want to characterize me as emotionally irresponsible, weak, and blaming others but you don’t know me and your quick to judge. And since we’re likely to continue interacting on this site, I figure, why not? Now you have some background about who I am. Hopefully in the future you’ll think twice before making nescient judgments.

        I look forward to bouncing ideas off each other in the future but let’s keep it about the ideas and not about character.

        • Greg C. says:

          Hey HL, I’ve been through similar trials. I’ve been through the wringer of the so-called justice system, been ripped off by it. Yes, the game is rigged. I took me years to get over it and get on with life. And, to learn that life is not found in the arena of competition, the free-enterprise system. It’s not winners and losers. I think we’re all sold this idea that you “dream” for something then go fling yourself at it. It’s the stuff of Hollywood, and parodied in the character of Don Q. I did it myself for decades. I built my own house in the country – to prove to myself and everyone that I had what it takes. No one was that impressed. I worked 70-hour weeks writing cool software. I got sued when a client got miffed that I dropped them. The lawyer actually argued that I was under contract to work for them until they gave me permission to leave. The person who owns that company now is a convicted criminal. I rescued a couple software projects – but didn’t want to join the firms, so was treated like dirt. I earned a 6-figure income, so my wife decided she was entitled to most of it. I wasted years burning with anger about it all. I mistook anger, the desire to fight back, as part of my creative energy. I ran for congress, symbolic of my anger at the system that just wanted to take and take, and not let me keep what I earned. Talk about Don Q! That’s all in the past now. I only talk about it now to let you know I’ve been there too.

          • Greg C. says:

            Just one more thought – the “dream” is often a hidden desire for recognition. We want to be recognized as good, and the bad guys to be recognized as bad. We dream of recognition, then go after it, and when all our hard work and creative energy is dissed, the dream gets eaten up in anger. But the real secret, speaking from my own experience, is we knew it all along, what would happen – we chose our path based on a self-fulfilling prophecy. If we opened our eyes to how the world works, we wouldn’t have to go down that road. But my choice was to suffer for my ideals, a noble thought straight from Cervantes, but unnecessary. As Jon said, many people put their life on hold as another kind of sacrifice, until their ideals are vindicated in the political arena. Still others just want the recognition, but just aren’t serious about actually doing the things necessary to get it. The scoundrels just want to steal the recognition by fraud.

            So it seems to me we just need to get over this recognition thing, and just get on with finding something doable to do that is its own reward.

    And maybe that seems like complaining about my situation, but it’s not. It’s the reality i can’t escape right now. I created my existence and my terms, and that responsibility rests solely on my shoulders. But what is not a cop out is recognizing that others’ religious belief in external authority creates physical barriers to the individual to fully express himself, without the threat of coercion or violence from the authorities for saying no

    • From Quebec says:

      I really believe in individual power, but I also believe that if individuals get together to form a group to fight a a common enemy, that they have more chances to win. So, that means that I also believe in groups.

      Here is the perfect example of what I am trying to say:

      A Bug’s Life – ”Then they ALL might stand up to us”

  5. 1EarthUnited says:

    Totally agree up to a point, the fully realized individual plays an inherent role in an interconnected, interdependent society. No man is an island unto himself, and therefore must balance the considerations of others which makes up society. There is a role for the individual to contribute to society, and for society to support, nurture the individual… there must be a symbiotic balance or the whole structure will collapse and descend into chaos.

    What Jon is saying: that any society can be corrupted by a minority of cancerous “elite” individuals who would like to control, imbalance and possible destroy the harmonious balance of society by exploiting, stealing wealth via central banking, installing incompetent corrupt leadership, enforcing a police state, using military war machine to destabilize etc. Those are signs of a civilization in decline, and it starts with an ideology of control, it used to be religion, television/ media propaganda, and now neo-liberal politics infiltrating our education system brainwashing the masses to do their bidding.

    If Ayn Rand’s intelligent, creative, sovereign individual matures into an enlightened, compassionate, loving wise man, that is our destiny for the 21st century and beyond. The solution is the individual awakening to his/her own power, and creating goals to correct this inherent polarized imbalance, first within ourselves, only then can we collectively transform society for the better.

        Popeye was born on December 8, 1894, and raised in Chester, Illinois, a small town near the Mississippi River.[1] The son of a handyman, his earliest work experiences included assisting his father in house painting and paper hanging. Skilled at playing drums, he also provided musical accompaniment to films and vaudeville acts in the local theater, where he was eventually given the job of film projectionist[2] at the Chester Opera House, where he also did live performances.[1] At age 18, he decided to become a cartoon. He took a correspondence course in cartoon acting from W. L. Evans of Cleveland, Ohio.[2] He said that after work he “lit up the oil lamps about midnight and worked on the course until 3 a.m.”

    The earth has become small, and on it hops the last man, who makes everything small. His race is as ineradicable as the flea; the last man lives longest.
    ‘We have invented happiness,’say the last men, and they blink. They have left the regions where it was hard to live, for one needs warmth. One still loves one’s neighbor and rubs against him, for one needs warmth…
    One still works, for work is a form of entertainment. But one is careful lest the entertainment be too harrowing. One no longer becomes poor or rich: both require too much exertion. Who still wants to rule? Who obey? Both require too much exertion.
    No shepherd and one herd! Everybody wants the same, everybody is the same: whoever feels different goes voluntarily into a madhouse.
    ‘Formerly, all the world was mad,’ say the most refined, and they blink…
    One has one’s little pleasure for the day and one’s little pleasure for the night: but one has a regard for health.
    ‘We have invented happiness,’ say the last men, and they blink.”

    “You meet a person who talks about elites’ war on the population, and this person, you realize, is doing two things: he’s speaking the truth; but he’s also canceling out his own life. It’s strange. It’s as if, in all his truth telling, he’s left a hole, and that hole is himself. The balance is gone. But it’s more than that. The decay and the disintegration of society is his excuse for his own absence. His own absence, even to himself.”

    Yes, you have a point, to a point; this man speaks what he believes to be the truth. It such an illusive thing even though one uses a sharpened wit. So much spin today. Whither it’s really the truth. Or just another very sophisticated layer. I don’t understand emotions, it’s mainly a fugue for me most times, I feel too much sometimes, I am drowned in the emotions of the world or a collapse of my discipline to hold it all together if I am not careful.

    My nature is be an artist, always has been and it always will be, and that makes me different in my thinking than you. And most others here. Were you might converge on a fact , I will diverge; the fact isn’t what is important, but only a direction. How they are used, why they are used.

    To create and destroy, and then create again. My nature is likened to burning it all down, every single bit of it. Nothing is worth keeping, and what I have learned is those that are spiritually set, they know themselves, they have no fear of what I talk about. That would be a dream Jon that would be a great desire. Burn it all down. The whole useless mess. But I can’t have that, can I now. They are still talking about the last guy that tried to do that.

    I not sure about you, your evasive and tricky sometimes with words, theirs a side of you that is invisible to me when I look. I can’t penetrate it, it’s so well hidden, and so my nature is to mistrust it. I have an inclination to believe that you are CIA. A talent like yours couldn’t have gone unnoticed this long from them.

    You know far too much about mind-control; You know far too much about hypnosis. I have noticed the subtle gas lighting, I see the subtle forms you create with exact words, the way your words form structures, and those tiny seeds that you plant. I watch them take root. I see those that you have Svengalied totally, who sing your all out praises. And they can’t see anything but…you. It idol worship, and so…

    You sell a dream, you sell dreaming, I have gone completely through all three of your matrix series, many times and one has to be asleep to believe in dreams Jon. That not what I want. That is what they want; they would like us to dream on, and on, to dream forever. That is what a technocratic future is about, the public dreaming through an alternate reality. A reality that is solely theirs…

    Have you ever watched people at a party, and watched how each moves in and changes the reality to there own suiting, and when someone with a greater power of perception moves in, they move on and start it again. Most people are voyeurs, they watch this life in much of trance state.

    You speak on about imagination, and I can’t for the life of me understand anyone not using it…even when they say they cannot; technocrats want us to imagine endlessly. I suspect how you speak, about it, you are mistaking imagination for the deep creative impulse, the impulse that is deep beneath all this ephemeral crap. You would’nt be able to see it or hear it, use any of your sense without imagination. Those senses are it’s tools. Imagination is how this reality is made, that the problem. It’s a tired old movie, endlessly playing. 

    You represent another side to this story, somewhere in or near a Republican idea. A patriot’s ideal. An American concept. Maybe a place of many Republics, and that, I am afraid is still very much a matrix, a government. Replacing one for the other. The whole ship is rotten and needs to be sank.

    This sudtle way you move Trump politics in and through this place, is to admired, your very good at it; it would be interesting to see what you have to say about Trump and North Korea. It’s building and will hit ignition point and the great machine of the military will start to move in that direct. Of course a lot will bellow praises and say he is negotiating.

    “You try to imagine what would happen if 100,000 people like him joined together in a great cause, and won. What would they do? It occurs to you that they wouldn’t suddenly reconstitute their own lives. They wouldn’t know how.”

    Lol. You under estimate a truffle pig to find truffles. Instinct the lowest physical layer of a brain will kick in, fight or flight, and then experience accumulates and reconstitute their lives. We will be reconstituted one year from today, totally different people. You and I.

    What is necessary is that the whole ideal of this reality needs to be totally reinvented. And it will work for while again, until the cockroaches raise their heads again, and those parasites always raise their heads. History has shown that they never can be totally exterminated. History has shown lot, the average human never pays attention to history at all. That a reason why they make the same mistakes.

    You talk about canceling my own life, I didn’t start this fire Jon. They damaged me physically with vaccines very early and psychology after that; fed me shit in the interim and told me lies about myself at school. And then religion. Took me years to undue that.. Took me years to remember who I am. By the time I figured it out. Six decades had flown by…and I’ll tell ya…when you were writing stories and poems to publish. Or listening to a favorite mentor. I was on the streets of Belfast, in the war of the poor with a tear in my eye and a fire in my mind. And a stone in each hand. I’ve reconstituted so many, many times, since then. Kill off a part of myself and make it new. But always the individual remains. 

    So your analysis is just a stab in dark…

    I think you need to re-read 1776 and the American colonists, it’s not what you think it is…a constitution is written by a corporation. A group. For a group.

    Free men, individual free men, never think about whither their free or not; they’ve excepted it a long time ago, at their birth,it is as natural as breathing, and it is integrated into what they are, they never think about what freedom is, they are free. They don’t need some stinking constitution, they don’t need a colonial war.  I look at law and say, what? They never think about gaining their freedom, or defining freedom for themselves. They speak freely and don’t give a damn if you like or not.

    I agree with you about the shape and texture of the matrix, the prison of a mind. I have always recognized this reality we live in as a constructed prison, a panopticon that is gaining sophistication. I live in non-compliance. 

  15. will iam says:

    As long as there is a noble cause expect war to be the ultimate means of reaching that. Noble causes create only nobility, and the core of that is elitism.

    Individuals are not created , individuals simply are. If you have an intent of creating them you are deluding yourself and are just formulating a better location in the Petri dish.

  16. Fight, Flight or Freeze. Freeze is unmentioned so as to keep you unaware of it. Most are stuck in freeze – contemplating fight or flight, never taking action.
