re/ who are you now? – thanks for your comments!


I still don’t know much about ‘the 400’, but I was pleased to get about two-dozen responses, some from people I hadn’t heard from in years. Those who chose to respond were all quite positive in their comments. What they seemed to value most is my ongoing perspective on the ‘big picture’, and the fact that I don’t align with any particular ideology.

I’m glad to get that feedback, because the big picture is my main focus of interest, and has been ever since I started writing. On my web page, The Real World & the Matrix World, there are links to several articles I’ve written, each delving into some aspect of the ‘big picture’, as I currently see it.

History plays a big part in those articles. I trace the historical progressions that lead up to today’s ‘big picture’. It is easier to acknowledge what is going on now, if you can see in the record of history that it has been going on for quite some time. History is like a video, telling a story up to the current day. Current events are simply the latest frames from the video, not very informative on their own – but often quite informative if you’ve been following the story, and if you are familiar with the modus operandi of the relevant players.

As regards what my ‘big picture’ looks like, consider this quote:

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicised incidents such as my encounter with Castro, to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and over economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it”.
—David Rockefeller, ‘Memoirs’, Random House, New York, 2002, page 405


He is talking here about manipulating events from behind the scenes, in order to move toward long-term goals. That is exactly what the big picture is about: financial elites, pulling the strings down through the years, orchestrating wars, economic crises, and political revolutions, in pursuit of power, social control, and the establishment of a world order more to their liking.

There are many people, perhaps most of our 400, who would reject this big picture, dismiss it as conspiracy theorizing, or as fanciful speculation. I could spend more time providing hard evidence, but I’ve learned over the years that there’s no point. The blue pill offers too many psychological comforts, while the red pill opens one up to anxiety, something Martin Heidegger might characterize with words like these, “When I am anxious I am no longer at home in the world”.

I must resign myself then to writing for an anxiety-tolerant minority, as represented by the two dozen who wrote in. My commentaries on current events are aimed at understanding how those events relate to long-term elite goals, as identified in my big-picture analysis. If you reject the big picture, then the commentaries aren’t likely to make much sense.

Several people shared their comments on the blog, as you can see here. Anyone can add comments, or reply to other people’s comments. I encourage you to jump in and participate. Share those ideas you would normally email to me, expecting me to post them eventually. That was the old way; direct comments are the new way.
