Co-opting the 'movements' : 2012 and all that!

A friend asked why people in a certain worldwide community are discussing the 2012 revelations in great detail, and NOT discussing all the other similar revelations emerging from the torah, bible, koran etc etc…


Why indeed? Here for what it is worth is my take at present.....

What we do know is the any system of Empire Logic will make every attempt to co-opt any grass roots emergent ideas that challenge the status quo in order to distract, deflect, undermine and otherwise disrupt any critical analysis inherent in those challenges.

The story of the early Christians is a pointer...

The Romans were persecuting followers of this poor man's religion in large numbers, yet were faced with the fact of an ever increasing growth of the membership of that 'faith' : the more the killed, the more people joined the new revolutionary ideal!

So they decided to stop the persecution, and allowed the Christians to have their faith, and even gave them buildings to house their churches.... and then they started to allow funding to flow in, from within their own ranks, eventually giving the Christians NGO status.

They also infiltrated the 'movement' and slowly, but surely manouevered their own people into the 'leadership', until such time as they could take over, and at that point the Church of Rome was born as an official entity....

The rest, as the say, is history ..... and given the roles the Churches played ever since as 'missionaries' what we know is that the first contact missionaries would live amongst the 'natives' and note every aspect of their lives in great detail, and those reports were shipped back to the central office, read and analysed, and used as 'intelligence' for the subsequent operations of subjugation by co-option....

I know for a fact that the bulk of the Jesuit writings of their first contacts from the 1400s onwards revealed that most (not all) of the hunter gatherer societies they met as first contact were fundamentally peaceful, non-hierarchical; they trusted their children and treated them as such from birth, in the expectation that their children would naturally explore their world and learn what they needed with little adult intervention; these cultures had no words for 'please' and no concept of coercion or punishment, would talk for days on any subject that concerned them before taking action (interminable meetings....) and even then would take action with the awareness that if new info came to light, further deliberation would ensue...

These communities were happy, balanced and their sex lives open. These communities had very little by way of religiosity, and were quite unwarlike.... 

In essence living the Christian ideal....

Which of course ran counter to the practices of the Church of Rome, and it's Inquisitors....

And as a part of the campaign to take control of the lands of these peoples, the Church of Rome also portrayed the inhabitants as 'savages; picking out the few who showed some signs of organised violent resistance as the norm..... and promoted the idea of saving them for Christ (by annihillating - extirpate was a frequently used word - them and converting the traumatised survivors.... who showed all the signs of PTSD and could be used in that degraded state to 'prove' the base nature of these 'savages'.....)

The recent revelations of rampant endemic systematic abuse in Irish Residential Schools, and the long history of the POLICIES enacted by Law against the children of the native peoples of Canada and North America and carried out by the Churches, a history that is still active, reveals that this is indeed the policy of both Church and State... an ancient Policy..

OK so THAT rant over, a critical look at the Mainstream Climate Debate, the ineffectual quality of Charities and large NGOs., Live Aid, Live8, the events after the Asian Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, the Haitii Earthquake, the Chilean Earthquake, the refusal of Amnesty International to identify the economic drivers of the abuses they recorded in South America and Africa, the way the Feminist, Hippy and Peace movements have been undermined, , and so on reveals a deep and well orchestrated campaign of co-option...

So too with 2012, and all apocalyptic stories that have more active readerships that the truth about say, Iraq.....

Co-option is only possible in such vast campaigns when critical analysis and thinking is undermined, when people who have been for generations in a near constant state of PTSD are looking for solace and will attach to any and all variations of Utopian ideals.... we, the vast majority of ordinary folk, are not individually to blame for the PTSD, (as it's the result of policies enforced by the System) yet it does permeate all those children of war veterans, all those children of war victims, all those who were beaten or saw lots of violence in their school years or at home, who claim 'that the beatings made me stronger' or who subscribe to the 'spare the rod, spoil the child' attitude of life, and those whose psyche was so damaged that they display outward symptoms of distress, a distress that as is most often 'labelled' by the establishment as this or that syndrome to mask the reality and keep those who managed somehow to 'adjust' to the sick society off the scent....

In psychological distress symptomology the TABOO is 'don't mention Society' ..... 'don't mention Civilisation' as a root cause of distress.... blame the victims.... (made all that much easier as the victims, in their confusions, shame and guilt will often blame themselves.....)

And so it is with all externally driven 2012/alien/rapture apocalyptic stories that they are ultimate disempowering, in that power is handed to some external agency, and all ya have to do is 'keep the faith' and the time of 'revelation' and 'change' will come and do the work...

Well, it ain't gonna happen, i never has, and never will.

I am sure I will piss a lot of people off with this analysis. On all sides...

I am 'Climate Change Denier', after all.... I am one of the FEW people in the community discussing CC and 2012 who consistently point out that Global WarRing, be it by direct extreme physical violence or by dint of Economics, is the single greatest threat to nature and to people today - and that threat is all too human, is absolutely an agency of human action and can only be countered by well informed, aware and active human beings...


Here's a riveting scientific article on aspects of what I have been discussing : Body Pleasure and the origins of Violence...
