The Illuminati is real, and it's everywhere.

But our people - they chose to do away with all of them. They created sameness (one world). We’ve been told the chief elder knew everything. Things no one else did. But I had learned that knowing what something is is not the same as knowing how something feels. Be curious. I got lost, the good kind of lost. This was forbidden? I didn’t know what to think, what to believe. Have faith, the Giver told me. He said faith - that was seeing beyond. He compared it to the wind - something felt, but not seen. Don’t except what is the truth just because it’s coming from someone you respect. Memories are not just about the past, they determine our future. You can change things. You can make things better. It was life, it just seemed more complete. Because if you can’t feel - what’s the point? The triangle of rocks, it’s real, what’s past there - the boundary of memory. What do you think would happen if you chose not to be injected? There is something wrong. Everything is wrong. Skip your injections, put the apple (forbidden fruit) over the sensor, it’ll think it’s your hand (mark of the beast). I wish I had been there when the memories returned. They were the Truth. The elders and their rules were the lie. It was real, from far behind me, from the place that I left. Perhaps it was only an echo. But it was enough. It would lead us all home.

​US threatened Yahoo with $250K daily fine when it resisted NSA data requests

​US threatened Yahoo with $250K daily fine when it resisted NSA data requests

When Yahoo didn’t comply with a National Security Agency request to hand over user data under the PRISM surveillance program, the US government threatened it with daily fines of $250K, the company has revealed.

Ron Bell, Yahoo’s general counsel, said in a blog post, that the company “refused to comply with what we viewed as unconstitutional and over broad surveillance and challenged the US Government’s authority.”

The PRISM electronic data mining program was first exposed by former NSA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden. Almost all the major US tech firms were listed as participants in the program.

The details of Yahoo’s attempt to resist joining the program come as a federal court judge unsealed 1,500 pages on Thursday related to a case the company filed with the Federal Intelligence Service Court (FISA), which provides legal authority in surveillance requests. Yahoo eventually lost the case on appeals.

No Al-Qaeda ever existed - BBC documentary: The Power of Nightmares

There is just enough bullshit to hold things together in this country. Bullshit is the glue, that binds us as a nation. Where would we be without our safe, familiar, American bullshit? Land of the free, home of the brave, the American dream, all men are equal, justice is blind, the press is free, your vote counts, business is honest, the good guys win, the police are on your side, god is watching you, your standard of living will never decline… and everything is going to be just fine— The official national bullshit story. I call it the American okie doke. Every one, every one of those items is provably untrue at one level or another, but we believe them because they’re pounded into our heads from the time we’re children. That’s what they do with that kind of thing—pound it into the heads of kids, ‘cause they know the children are much too young to be able to muster an intellectual defense against a sophisticated idea like that, and they know that up to a certain age children believe everything their parents tell them. And as a result, they never learn to question things. Nobody questions things in this country anymore. Nobody questions it—everybody is too fat and happy. Everybody’s got a cell phone that’ll make pancakes and rub their balls now— Way too fucking prosperous for our own good. Way too fucking prosperous, Americans have been bought off and silenced by toys and gizmos. And no one learns to question things.

For if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realise that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance. Ignorance is Strength (to them). The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. How does one man assert his power over another. By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is inflicting pain and humiliation. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.
