  1. My mind keeps going to the end game of the globalist technocratic game and in every scenario my mind and the evidence presents me is not good for the masses.
    For instance if there is a nuclear war all plans by these globalist’s technocrats do not include any mention of the people whatsoever.
    Scares the hell out of me.

  2. Disturbing! Disgusting!
    Really just so awful and horrifying that the US Federal Government and it’s institutions and their lackies entirely disregard human rights, national sovereignty, and international law.

    End the Federal Government! (A far fetched dream, I’m afraid, because even thinking that makes me a domestic terrorist).

    It’s so disappointing that I can’t be “proud to be an American”. I do think the foundational values of this country are commendable, and I believe that most Americans stand behind our fundamental, inalienable rights. But unfortunately, those in power have no interest in upholding any sort of moral code or engaging under an ethical framework.

    Will humanity be able to reconcile the evils carried out by our governments? Will the US government actually fall one day? Will we ever live in a voluntarist world?

  3. 14 years on, not one of the USA’s indoctrinated, above the law torturers has been held to account. Along with their above the law POTUS’s, they’ve been free to double down and destroy any prospect of justice. The Controlled Demolition of the United States proceeds, unhindered.

  4. James, only just now recognizing that you have all these guitars! I don’t remember ever hearing you mention being a musician! Do you ever make the music that goes in your content? I really liked the music in the media matrix! It reminded me of a bunch of stuff I like. Specifically it reminded me of the band Mogwai!
    Just occured to me that maybe it was you behind the music 😀
