How Could This Happen?

April 4, 2013

Most people wonder how our ancestors could sit back and allow the conspiracy to gain such a strong foothold (i.e. “deathgrip”) on the planet.

Believe me, it really wasn’t that hard to do.

First, they decided to move very slowly, so no one would catch onto their infiltration.

That, though, was no very necessary because of basic human nature.

You see, as much as we seem to think that we are very “engaged” with the world around us and “up to speed” on all the vital stuff going on, we really (for the most part) don’t give a hoot.

Given the choice of studying the demographics of the economies of the world and seeing a football game, probably 99% would choose the game. That’s the way we operate.

And though many people get involved with some cause like protecting endangered species (a problem caused by Man, usually) or freeing Tibet (a problem caused by Man), the vast majority of the people are more concerned with the more immediate things in life, like spending time with our families or getting the latest music or downing a few brewskies with friends.

This is not to say that the majority of people would not get highly incensed over certain events it’s just that – for the most part – people tend to want to be left alone so they can concentrate more on themselves and their families.

That’s human nature.

And that is how the conspiracy has gained such a large footprint in the world today, relying on humans to behave humanly.

Even confronted with the reality of what is going on, most people ignore it in favor of whatever else excites them.

I have seen people in third world countries living in what we would call abject poverty but being very happy with their lot. They have their health, their families, and the part to provide for the ones they love. What else is true happiness about anyway?

Enter the do-gooders, who draw back in horror at “such squalor” and vow to “improve” these peoples’ lives by giving them the gift of technology and industrialization.

This reminds me of the wonderful “charity” of Bill Gates, giving computers to so many schools. Yes, and then laughing all the way to the bank as the schools had to dole out money to pay for the programs to run on his “gifts”. (And he got a tax write-off for the company as well, I am certain.)

This sort of charity is rather self-serving and is what we do to people in the third world countries. Most of them were doing okay until we came in with our first-world infrastructures and gave their governments a perfect model to oppress their people.

There is nothing wrong with charity, but this ain’t it.

But charity is another very human attribute and we happily give to organizations who disrupt peaceful people in the guise of helping them. And we never see the reality of what is going on.

Because, of course, we are too involved in doing the things that most interest us.
