The Political Matrix

17 March 2014, 19:00

The word matrix is synonymous with the word prototype, being a template or an original of something.

 I would like to expand on this and invoke the theme central to The Matrix Trilogy series of films that questions our perception of the reality in which we live, and how the exploitation by society’s hierarchy leads to citizens living out their lives under an illusion based on erroneous facts and assumptions.  

To enable us to understand our present and future, we first have to look back to history to understand our past, as suggested by this apt figure of speech.

In 1297 the Magna Carter was signed into English statute law, these principals forming the basis of the Anglo- American constitutions and is the benchmark for most of our basic rights today, it also heavily influenced the formation of classical liberal ideology with its emphasis on individual rights.  

 Historian, Professor Carroll Quigley, theorist and lecturer on the evolution of civilisation, an author of the classic ‘Hope and Tragedy, claimed the incentive for the introduction of the Magna Carter and classical liberal thought was inspired by the argument that feudalism with its potential for abuse was bad, as were all systems, and that people were fundamentally good.  Attention focused on the rights of the individual, for good, at the expense of the system with its capacity for exploitation. The system eventually dissolved due to a number of factors, but undoubtedly propelled by the acceptance of the rights of the common man, leading down the road to a period known as the Renaissance or the enlightenment, which saw human history at its pinnacle.

 The ideology of classical liberalism governed most of the western world through to the early stages of the twentieth century when the concept underwent a complete overhaul.  Although philosophical thought was veering toward a collectivist type of liberalism which gained momentum in the 19th century.  

The First World War of the 20thcentury had its beginnings in the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand of Austria, as is noted in the history books, but what is not explained in reasonable detail how this set off a whole chain of events by the humanist collectivists to attain the tyrannical governments they envisaged to bring populations under their control. Witness the Bolshevik revolution, National Socialism, Italian Fascism and later Mao and Pol Pot.  This was their chance to introduce the socialist states they dreamt of as well as remove classical liberalism as a force forever. They planned to increase population’s reliance on governments through the welfare state, centralising elitist power, and cementing their citizen’s enslavement, right where the governing classes wanted them in fact.

By letting the social engineers take charge citizens would be rendered incapable of independent thought and would be directionless and passive, which would work to the advantage of their controllers.      

The heralding in of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917 was responsible for the system, in this instance communism, becoming the arbitrator in respect of human rights, due to a change in perception that held to the view that people were inherently evil, justifying the system as a means to counteract this, by control, rendering it superior to the individual and therefor good. This was also bourne out by the writing of Quigley.

Think about it like this, a system devised by society’s controllers i.e. those at the top of the pyramid structurally in terms of wealth and power, and those it co-opts, introduce a means of controlling a majority to their own advantage. At the heart of the system’s success, is the manipulation of the perceptions of the populace without their awareness of such, absolute secrecy concerning the structure at the mid-level to top layers of the pyramid- the who’s who if you will, and its inner workings or how it operates.  This requires a multi-layered organogram with multi-faceted functions to avoid those in the middle, and also at the lower levels, being able to identify and implicate those higher- up in the hierarchy.

The analogy of the system to that of an organogram is not only valid but indicates it’s highly organised, albeit secretive, composition.

Of course the success of the system depends on the co-option of large segments of society who are required to control the populace through influence by overt and covert mind control techniques to implement the agenda of their controllers.  Examples of these co-opted segments would be in the political, media, intelligence, corporate, lobbyist groups, and academia arenas to name a few.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy ex- U.S President, who was assassinated in 1963, also, warned us of the danger secret societies and by implication their agendas present, in his words delivered at the Waldorf- Astoria Hotel in April 1961 as follows; 

“ For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence …….on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.  Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumour is printed, and no secret is revealed”. He goes onto to add “I’m not asking your newspapers to support the Administration, but I’m asking for your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people.  He goes onto say he has complete confidence in the response and dedication of citizens whenever they are fully informed.

The operative word being WHENEVER, and assuming they have the inclination to know or remove their heads from inside their buckets of chicken long enough to pay attention.

Was President Kennedy the last independent president of the free world? His own man in other words. I hold to that opinion.

Successive presidents have in all likelihood been stooges of the monolithic ruthless conspiracy he refers to in his landmark speech.     

So it is a given that nothing occurs in a vacuum, wars, revolutions, riots, and assassinations  always have a place in the scheme of things, they are not random events, they are orchestrated for the reasons  of expansion and consolidation in the political or economic sense, or eliminating the opposition, and always aim toward an end goal or objective.      

The truism that history is written by the victors goes without saying, and applies equally to the victor’s behind-the-scenes sponsors.   

The term conspiracy theorist has been bandied about for decades as a form of ridicule used against those opposed to the official narrative supplied by the powers-that-be to cover their tracks. The term implies that conversation on the matter is over, and only the outlandish cling to these theories.  Think of the Elvis is still alive myth, deliberately propagated to discredit the so-called conspiracy theorists and to apply this ridicule across the board to include issues of a more serious nature ensuring they are viewed in the same light that is, of the absurd.     

Remove the word theory and one is left with the word conspiracy, so it’s a form of word-play propaganda in use.

Of course the peer group mentality ensures that the mainstream view is accepted, after all who wants to be out on a limb, and at odds with conventional wisdom, not the average person for sure. This attitude is abetted by the ‘presstitutes’ otherwise known as the media.   

In ending, if consolidation and expansion is the name of the game of the shadowy elite, what can be envisioned as the outcome? Unity on a global scale via a world government system?  Is that the conspiracy?
