Your power in a decaying world

Your power in a decaying world

by Jon Rappoport

November 12, 2017

These are notes I made prior to preparing my three Matrix collections:

“Solutions to private problems and public problems require the ability to think things through, logically, and to reject what is unworkable or biased—but above and beyond that, a person needs to be able to imagine solutions that haven’t been tried before.”

“Propaganda says: defect from your own power. Never find out what it is. Assume it isn’t there. Propaganda says: all life is about the species, not about the individual.”

“When propagandists find a good thing, a message that works, they pound on it, they keep hammering away. Family, group, family, group, community. On and on. They never promote the message called The Individual with the same intensity. That would be counter-productive to what they are trying to accomplish: group identity; and amnesia about being an individual.”

“Civilization continues to erode and decay, as individual power is put on the back burner. But that doesn’t give the individual a license to surrender. If others want to give up, that’s their business. The individual, instead, finds new frontiers for his power, for his capacity to invent reality.”

“There is you, there is your own power. And what is that power? It comes in two forms or venues. First, there is the ability to apply logic to events and information; to think rationally from A to B to C; to analyze. And second, there is imagination, the capacity to conceive and then invent realities that would never otherwise exist in the world.”

“Individual power doesn’t need to make rigid distinctions between what is done for self vs. what is done for others. Social engineers and propagandists make those separations. You exercise your creative power to fulfill what you deeply desire; and that process will, in fact, spill over and affect others in a positive way. It will lift them up. It will remind them that they, too, have power.”

“Logic and analysis keeps you from being sent down wrong roads, keeps you from buying official reality. Logic also reminds you that you have a mind. Logic is a road that can take you deeper and deeper into more basic fallacies that underpin organized society and its branches of knowledge. Logic tells you there are always more fundamental questions to ask and answer. There are levels of lies. The deeper you go, the more confident you become. The more powerful. Logic also lets you know when you’re projecting basic pre-judgments over a whole landscape and neglecting to look at the details.”

“Passivity is a disease. It spreads and takes over. It makes strong people weak, and weak people demented. The passive life is precisely and exactly a life without power. The cure is a life lived with power.”

“In case there is any misunderstanding, the ability to help others and defend them from oppression is part and parcel of your own power. How could you help them without your power? How could you accomplish anything at all in that direction? How would denying your own power possibly result in a good outcome? And most importantly, it is through imagination that you can devise new ways to expose and reduce oppression, ways that haven’t been thought of before.”

“As society continues to decay, more and people attack individual power and place their faith in a program that reduces every human to a lowest common denominator of dependence on some controlling entity. This article of faith is abject surrender.”

“Some people want to say that power is a neutral object that can be used for good or evil. That isn’t true. Your deepest power is alive. It’s personal. It’s stunningly energetic and dynamic. It connects with your deepest understanding of what is true and good and right. But it never sacrifices itself on the altar of what others insist is good and true and right. It never deserts you for an abstract ideology someone else has devised. That ideology was formulated, in fact, to separate you from your power.”

“It takes great energy for a person to bury his own strength. Why not use that energy to multiply your power?”

    Jon I like your articles of self empowerment. People have more power than most will ever know. I get a kick out of friends that tell me I can’t do something. Even when I show them things I’ve done that have an impact on the world, they’ll still tell me I can’t do it.

    It’s better to try and fail than to never try at all. The learned helplessness scenario.

    We need more free thinkers like we had 100 years ago. Lead, follow, or get out of my way! This country was born on self determination. We’ve turned into a nation of spineless jelly fish. Time get get rid of the squeaking gerbil inside, and unleash the roaring lion.

    “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”
    Steve Jobs

    Mankind is at a critical juncture in human history. With the internet we can share thoughts and ideas with every one on earth. We can find out what we have in common as opposed to what divides us. Like my friend who is a Sioux Indian, and a member of one of the tribes that met Custer his demise. He was also a member of the 7th Calvary in Vietnam. I asked him what is was like to be a member of the Sioux nation, and in the 7th? “People are people.” he said.

    To fail at something should be a positive learning experience. It’s only a failure if you believe it’s a failure. Never say never!! Let that 3%terS in all of us rise up. Future generations are counting on it.

    Stupid people that get us into trouble, always have the answer to get us out of trouble. REALLY???

    Just be prepared. Expect the unexpected. Don’t get too worked up over the latest headline or false flag psyop.
    Don’t invest too much time in the kabuki theater of the rigged two party (Uniparty) system. It’s a club that we are not in and their mantra will always be more for us and less for you.
    Going back to the primitive is going to be too much for the selfie stick fakebook crowd but others will thrive.
    Just maybe a new and better world will be born after it all wipes out.
