First I must apologize for some unanswered e-mail. It appears some people do not like the truth and attempt to sabotage my on-line computer and I cannot explain why some email has been transferred from my incoming mail box to my mind webmail box which transfer I usually make myself. Anyway I have now found that this has been happening and have decided it is in keeping with site revisions, to have a reader’s comment folder.

"you" speak the "truth" my friend. I’m glad to hear (read) it today in this illusion of truth in the world... telling us that small facts (who did what) is the real and only truth. But many of us are learning more of the truth during this critical time of conscious evolution. Please go to www.3rdhybrid.com. I will be putting a link to the mindweb on there soon. Peace to the truth seekers. J. Thank You. Ed.
I totally agree. I, being a young male, have noticed that in this country being a slave owner is totally legal and accepted if the chains that bound the slave cannot physically be seen by the subject. What better way to enslave a peoples than by hiding the chains in the mind. Thank You. Ed.
Origin of AIDS
Perhaps they only gave the vaccine to promiscuous participants because monogamous couple were at a low risk for hepatitis B anyways. I get what you're saying, but I just don't see this as a communist plot.
Reply: Thanks; I don’t see it as a Communist plot either, they suffer it also, it is a Globalist plot. The issue is what they do not who they gave it to. Ed.
The Stockholm Syndrome
AMEN!! The sacrifice of God given rights, limited liability instead of full responsibility have created a nation of perpetual slaves, not even aware they have been harpooned. Thanks for this nice work! Thank You. Ed.
It seems to me that we have to acknowledge that those powers ruling the world have done far more than just take over by force of finance. They have used their powers to teach the world a new philosophy and before this is widely exposed then people will remain unable to understand the concept of self-government in sufficient detail to see its benefits and potentials. Or, perhaps even worse, see the dangers and realities of their enslavement. Too true. Thank You. Ed.
This topic is fascinating, I can understand exactly why a person would do this. Thank You. Ed.
AIDS and the World Government plot.
I am most pleased to have found on the internet this information re the deliberate creation of AIDS. I am a 42 year old American who has since kindergarten in fall 1966 been self consciously committed to law & order, middle class values & generally what I saw my elders more or less consistently extol. For over 30 years I have been fixated on anti-communism & anti-welfarism, blithely tarring fascism, nazism, socialism, communism & welfarism with the same brush though I always gave authoritarianism a free pass if it was imposed in the name of anti communism --Chiang, Franco, Marcos, Batista, Samoza, Pinochet etcetera of course come easily to mind.
In 1985 I successively read key books by Ayn Rand, Clarence Manion, John T Flynn, Frank Chodorov, Rene Wormser, Ludwig von Mises & Garet Garrett; my John Birch Society chapter leader & co-ordinator were NOT specially supportive as I was starting to think a bit too much for myself. I joined the JBS in September 1982 & was impressed by the forthright natural law basis of The Law, an English translation of Frederic Bastiat's 1850 essay the JBS co-ordinator who inducted me gave me though he seemed equivocal about Bastiat's free trade defence which I took 3 years to embrace uncritically myself.
Shortly after this embrace of isolationism, libertarianism, individualist arch conservatism--what Murray Rothbard & Llewellyn Rockwell called old rightism, objectivism, ancient liberalism & working class populism I acquired matter from the Committee to Restore the Constitution whose author made alarming claims re the malign origin of AIDS. Because I was & am stoutly devoted to intellectual & academic freedom versus censorship & obfuscation I indorsed the right of any one to make any such claim he wished. After reading the substantiation of these claims & long considering them in light of my admittedly invidious view of human nature I soberly concluded what I read was true.
I commend you good people for continuing to disseminate the grim account of how AIDS was foisted on mankind. Though I am terribly cynical & pessimistic about the prospects of western civilization generally & the American ex-republic specifically I am glad there are individuals who feel themselves constrained to spread the saving truth. By all means continue the fine work & please accept my best wishes. You fully rate a reward I can not give you.
Reply: Don’t be cynical and pessimistic my friend. Keep reading , keep learning, have faith in truth: only truth has survival power. Ed.
Thank you very much for putting this site together. Lately I have been praying for boldness, confidence, and truth. Reading this has helped me in all of these areas. I feel empowered. Thanks again and keep doing what you are doing. Thank You. Ed.

Do women and men experience Stockholm Syndrom equally frequently? The examples I know of off-hand include the four prisoners in Stockholm and Patty Hearst, leaving me with 4 out of 5 being women. Most hostages are probably men, so if this ratio holds that's a pretty remarkable sex-based psychological difference. Reply: Yes and it is significant, but I have no figures on this. Thank You. Ed.
I have written to you on numerous occasions and never heard back from you. I recently ordered some small booklets from Heritage book store and they sent me a list of their other books and I noticed that your name was among them. I agree with what you are saying entirely and I read with interest your comments, which make a lot of sense. I believe that God is revealing a lot to us now at this time, and by that I mean different things that have not been revealed to the past generations, at least not in the last 2 or 3 hundred years that I can read of. I pray that our father will continue to use you as His body at this "shakeing time" in our history to get the word out and to awake all we, that have never awoke since Adam was put to sleep.
PS Would you like to comment on what you meant by "checking out our gardening skills" do you really think a crunch could be coming that soon?
Your brother in Christ, M.
Reply: You have probably now read more on the health aspect. The war is on and if you want to keep healthy try to eat healthy. Thank you. Ed.
I do have a critique of chapter 2 of "globalism" where it is alluded that Hegelian dialectic methods are manipulative. I find dialectics to be very transparent in nature. To me, when using dialectics in a group, the thesis is not intended to be propaganda nor manipulative. It is simply a thesis or concept. The antithesis is simply a counter to the thesis or another expression of concept. The synthesis is the coming together of disparate views towards greater understanding, even without "merging" those view. Simply being aware of opposing views is usually enough to expand consciousness. Thanks for the web-site. I can be reached for comment:
Reply: I think the effects of Hegelian Dialectic deny your views, there are later references; the trick is that both the thesis and antithesis give a wrong view of humanity and lead to a synthesis desired by the propagator. Thank You. Ed.
A very good essay. I hope to come back and critique it later. I do not mean criticize, I mean expand and include my own experiences. D.G. Thank you. Ed.
I read the majority of your material and i can't help myself but notice something. I am as open-minded on the subject as you are, but having such insight thoughts about reality puts in doubt the theory of a godly existence, let alone the one described in the religious books. Here is my specific question: Even though you can't directly admit to believing in god, do you need to believe in that? I believe in nothing, and i won't call myself an atheist because it implies the existence of a godly entity which i don't believe in. I believe in what i see, the physical world of nature because i am made of its material and i will end in its cherished dirt, along with the respectful maggots. I rarely believe in human goodness, some are good, but because we "think" we are always entitled to a little perversion. I always said to myself, a monkey who had the ability to think would end up as perverse as the human being, because in a world of opportunities thinking leads to deviations. I agree that the superior humans are those that are capable of controlling those instincts. There is pride in the stubborn automaton masses, yet i don't feel hope, i went through a long range of beliefs, from hope to anger, now i believe in a truth, that humanity follows the life cycle of a bacteria, birth, expansion, maturity, saturation and death. We are already in all those phases altogether but the balance will favor the death sooner or later, human technology being unable, despite all the facts, replace a billion-years old atmosphere, a 1% tap water for a constantly growing humanity, these behind the world conspiracy know that, they are securing the survival of their seeds. I hope they fail and they will surely.
Reply: You cannot believe in nothing that is self-contradictory. I believe the evidence leaves no room for doubt that we are an intelligent creation and I wonder if you have read the latest “Of Truth”. Thank You. Ed.
Consider: The way we define 'human' determines our view of self, others, relationships, institutions, life, and future. Choose wisely...there will be results.
In an effort to diminish the multiple and persistent dangers and abuses which have characterized the affairs of man in his every Age, and to assist in the requisite search for human identity, it is essential to perceive and specify that distinction which naturally and most uniquely defines the human being. Because definitions rule in the minds, behaviors, and institutions of men, we can be confident that delineating and communicating that quality will assist the process of resolution and the courageous ascension to which man is called. As Americans of the 21st Century, we are obliged and privileged to join our forebears and participate in this continuing proclamation.
"WHAT IS MAN...?" God asks - and answers: HUMAN DEFINED: EARTH'S CHOICEMAKER. by JAMES FLETCHER BAXTER (c) 2004
Many problems in human experience are the result of false and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.
Human knowledge is a fraction of the whole universe. The balance is a vast void of human ignorance. Human reason cannot fully function in such a void, thus, the intellect can rise no higher than the criteria by which it perceives and measures values.
Humanism makes man his own standard of measure. However, as with all measuring systems, a standard must be greater than the value measured. Based on preponderant ignorance and an egocentric carnal nature, humanism demotes reason to the simpleton task of excuse-making in behalf of the rule of appetites, desires, feelings, emotions, and glands.
Because man, hobbled in an ego-centric predicament, cannot invent criteria greater than himself, the humanist lacks a predictive capability. Without instinct or transcendent criteria, humanism cannot evaluate options with foresight and vision for progression and survival. Lacking foresight, man is blind to potential consequence and is unwittingly committed to mediocrity, averages, and regression – and worse. Humanism is an unworthy worship.
The void of human ignorance can easily be filled with a functional faith while not-so-patiently awaiting the foot-dragging growth of human knowledge and behavior. Faith, initiated by the Creator and revealed and validated in His Word, the Bible, brings a transcendent standard to man the choice-maker. Other philosophies and religions are man-made, humanism, and thereby lack what only the Bible has:
1.Transcendent Criteria and
2.Fulfilled Prophetic Validation.
The vision of faith in God and His Word is survival equipment for today and the future. Man is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural foundation of his environments, institutions, and respectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is oriented to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the universe.
At the sub-atomic level of the physical universe quantum physics indicates a multifarious gap or division in the causal chain; particles to which position cannot be assigned at all times, systems that pass from one energy state to another without manifestation in intermediate states, entities without mass, fields whose substance is as insubstantial as "a probability."
Only statistical conglomerates pay tribute to deterministic forces. Singularities do not and are therefore random, unpredictable, mutant, and in this sense, uncaused. The finest contribution inanimate reality is capable of making toward choice, without its own selective agencies, is this continuing manifestation of opportunity as the pre-condition to choice it defers to the natural action of living forms.
Biological science affirms that each level of life, single-cell to man himself, possesses attributes of sensitivity, discrimination, and selectivity, and in the exclusive and unique nature of each diversified life form.
The survival and progression of life forms has all too often been totally dependent upon the ever-present mutative potential and undeterminative appearance of one unique individual organism within the whole spectrum of a given species. Only the uniquely equipped individual organism is, like The Golden Wedge of Ophir, capable of traversing the causal gap to survival and progression. Mere reproductive determinacy would have rendered life forms incapable of such potential. Only a moving universe of opportunity plus choice enables the present reality.
Each individual human being possesses a unique, highly developed, and sensitive perception of diversity. Thus aware, man is endowed with a natural capability for enacting internal mental and external physical selectivity. Quantitative and qualitative choice-making thus lends itself as the superior basis of an active intelligence.
Man is earth's Choicemaker. His title describes his definitive and typifying characteristic. Recall that his other features are but vehicles of experience intent on the development of perceptive awareness and the following acts of decision. Note that the products of man cannot define him for they are the fruit of the discerning choice-making process and include the cognition of self, the utility of experience, the development of value-measuring systems and language, and the acculturation of civilization.
The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits, customs, and traditions, are the creative harvest of his perceptive and selective powers. Creativity is a choice-making process. His articles, constructs, and commodities, however marvelous to behold, deserve neither awe nor idolatry, for man, not his contrivance, is earth's own highest expression of the creative process.
Man is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and significant act of choosing is, itself, the Archimedean fulcrum upon which man levers and redirects the forces of cause and effect to an elected level of quality and diversity. Further, it orients him toward a natural environmental opportunity, freedom, and bestows earth's title, The Choicemaker, on his singular and plural brow.
Deterministic systems, ideological symbols of abdication by man from his natural role as earth's Choicemaker, inevitably degenerate into collectivism; the negation of singularity, they become a conglomerate plural-based system of measuring human value. Blunting an awareness f diversity, blurring alternatives, and limiting the selective creative process, they are self-relegated to a passive and circular regression.
Tampering with man's selective nature endangers his survival for it would render him impotent and obsolete by denying the tools of diversity, individuality, perception, criteria, selectivity, and progress. Coercive attempts produce revulsion, for such acts are contrary to an indeterminate nature and nature's indeterminate off-spring, man the Choicemaker.
Until the oppressors discover that wisdom only just begins with a respectful acknowledgment of The Creator, The Creation, and The Choicemaker, they will be ever learning but never coming to a knowledge of the truth. The rejection of Creator-initiated standards relegates the mind of man to its own primitive, empirical, and delimited devices. It is thus that the human intellect cannot ascend and function at any level higher than the criteria by which it perceives and measures values.
Additionally, such rejection of transcendent criteria self-denies man the vision and foresight essential to decision-making for survival and progression. He is left, instead, with the redundant wreckage of expensive hind-sight, including human institutions characterized by averages, mediocrity, and regression.
Humanism, mired in the circular and mundane egocentric predicament, is ill-equipped to produce transcendent criteria. Evidenced by those who do not perceive superiority and thus find themselves beset by the shifting winds of the carnal-ego; i.e., moods, feelings, desires, appetites, etc., the mind becomes subordinate: a mere device for excuse-making and rationalizing self-justification.
The carnal-ego rejects criteria and self-discipline for such instruments are tools of the mind and the attitude. The appetites of the flesh have no need of standards for at the point of contention standards are perceived as alien, restrictive, and inhibiting. Yet, the very survival of our physical nature itself depends upon a maintained sovereignty of the mind and of the spirit.
It remained, therefore, to the initiative of a personal and living Creator to traverse the human horizon and fill the vast void of human ignorance with an intelligent and definitive faith. Man is thus afforded the prime tool of the intellect - a Transcendent Standard by which he may measure values in experience, anticipate results, and make enlightened and visionary choices.
Only the unique and superior God-man Person can deservedly displace the ego-person from his predicament and free the individual to measure values and choose in a more excellent way. That sublime Person was indicated in the words of the prophet Amos, "...said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel ." Y'shua Mashiyach Jesus said, "If I be lifted up I will draw all men unto myself."
As long as some choose to abdicate their personal reality and submit to the delusions of humanism, determinism, and collectivism, just so long will they be subject and re-acting only, to be tossed by every impulse emanating from others. Those who abdicate such reality may, in perfect justice, find themselves weighed in the balances of their own choosing.
That human institution which is structured on the principle, "...all men are endowed by their Creator with ... Liberty ...," is a system with its roots in the natural Order of the universe. The opponents of such a system are
necessarily engaged in a losing contest with nature and nature's God. Biblical principles are still today the foundation under Western Civilization and the American way of life. To the advent of a new season we commend the present generation and the "multitudes in the valley of decision."
Let us proclaim it. Behold! The Season of Generation-Choicemaker Joel 3:14 KJV
"I should think that if there is one thing that man has learned about himself it is that he is a creature of choice." R M W.
"Man is a being capable of subduing his emotions and impulses; he can rationalize his behavior. He arranges his wishes into a scale, he chooses; in short, he acts. What distinguishes man from beasts is precisely that he adjusts his behavior deliberately." Ludwig von Mises
"To make any sense of the idea of morality, it must be presumed that the human being is responsible for his actions and responsibility cannot be understood apart from the presumption of freedom of choice." John Chamberlain
"The advocate of liberty believes that it is complementary of the orderly laws of cause and effect, of probability and of chance, of which man is not completely informed. It is complementary of them because it rests in part upon the faith that each individual is endowed by his Creator with the power of individual choice. "Wendell J. Brown
"Our Founding Fathers believed that we live in an ordered universe. They believed themselves to be a part of the universal order of things. Stated another way, they believed in God. They believed that every man must find his own place in a world where a place has been made for him. They sought independence for their nation but, more importantly, they sought freedom for individuals to think and act for themselves. They established a republic dedicated to one purpose above all others - the preservation of individual liberty..." Ralph W. Husted
"We have the gift of an inner liberty so far-reaching that we can choose either to accept or reject the God who gave it to us, and it would seem to follow that the Author of a liberty so radical wills that we should be equally free in our relationships with other men. Spiritual liberty logically demands conditions of outer and social freedom for its completion." Edmund A. Opitz
"Above all I see an ability to choose the better from the worse that has made possible life's progress." Charles Lindbergh
"Freedom is the Right to Choose, the Right to create for oneself the alternatives of Choice. Without the possibility of Choice, and the exercise of Choice, a man is not a man but a member, an instrument, a thing." Thomas Jefferson

Being new to the Internet all of these details are new to me, shameful though it may seem to others. Having fought stress-related illness for some years now I use some really excellent natural health products with herbal ingredients, and am horrified to think someone may stop that supply. Forbidding Herbs in our gardens.... complete madness ! This is solely about greed, rich men wanting more. We have to fight back HARD. I am going to be reading all I can about this with my family and friends. We shall form a circle and inform ourselves, then we shall put our backing behind the most powerful fighting group as long as that group has a strong ethical integrity. Thank you for informing us. M.
Thank You. Ed.
please contact me soon, the mind game is starting to wear me down, but I refuse to give up.
Thank You. Ed.
I am a regular reader of your writings and have agreed with you since the beginning, always having had doubts myself about the actual world's order and the power games of greed and deceit. The only regret and anger I have towards the mass, those under the spell of humanism and socialist values, is the quasi-absence of introspection. I was raised by good values and grew up through the various stages of the attractive `new` entertaining mass media format but i have always made an introspection.
Being thinking beings, we should question continuously, even in a stunted and taught reality. What i mean is the victims of globalists, except for those who know and are never heard for reasons we know, deserve their own decadence (they do have knowledge of the effects of smoking, alcohol and excessive eating habits). Far from being a negative-oriented person, I reckon that the human naturally prefers to avoid responsibility, i agree with you on that. Nonetheless, i witnessed people becoming increasingly concerned during, and shortly after a documentary on the global water supply and the upcoming threats, then follows an action movie or funny sitcom, and the positive effect of the warning is cancelled out or reduced near to nothing. The day goes by and the rat race goes on once more.
People know little or nothing about the global conspiracy, but they just learned about the imminent threat of global water shortage, yet most react nearly as if there was no threat and tend to quickly forget until the next warning. Too much distracting entertainment is the answer for sure, along with, as you said, the instilled habit of scorning conspiracies.
My question to you is: Even if people knew about the global conspiracy, are you convinced, or do you believe, that they will take the threat to its true extent, even if they knew it could be a truth? Along with that the idea that man would rather go to his lost than having to change his habits.
Note: This is a partial message for a fragment of a more wholesome idea, you will notice the open-endness on some theories you already know and treated.
Reply: Actually I believe there are a great many more who know there is a conspiracy than will admit it. Unfortunately they are caught in a trap of fear, ignorance and confusion. They see the oppressive power of wealth but fail to accept the physical and spiritual power of humanity. They therefore walk in fear and shame rather than enlightenment. They will do nothing until they see more people stand firm and tell them enough truth for realistic decision making. Thank You. Ed.
HI, i also am really interested in all of this. i have only really skimmed your site, but have looked closely at what i HAVe read. i am not mad in the bit i've read of your 'the 666 Beast' interpretaion, where you blame the 'beast' in man for our predicament. this is wrong. VERy wrong in my opinion. i feel, that we should always be aware of relatioanlrns......for example, if we look at ancient Greece, and its mythology. one can see that how that story/mythology is created and interpreted and promoted served a similar means to how other myths have been done so, including Bernays' PR myth etc so, lookin at ancient Greece. what do we see? we see a creation of Olympic gods/males mostly, who SHEd their animal and plant connections/NATURE so as to become all-human so, do you see, from there there has been SHAME about our animal nature, and our interelation with Nature so if not a '666 Beast' to scapegoat or blame what then? mechanical irrationality masquerading as REASON. a dark example of that is the nazi plans meticulously 'reasoned' out for the 'Final Solution'! doesn't mr white middle class/aristocrat man claim superioroty precisely beCAUSe of his 'reasoning' powers which justify his exploitation of animals, adn all of Nature??
Reply: I think you should take time and effort to present your case clearly, you will then understand it better and you may persuade others that you think for yourself rather than just try to recall and repeat what others tell you. Thank You. Ed.
Dismantle the Irrational Heritage
you're talk of truth has negated one simple and factual reality of truth. Each individual seeks his own truth, but not without inevitable self deception, the only way one can find one's own truth is through brutal honesty with oneself. i agree that deciet has become ever more the leader of destruction of any given societies culture, and that is a quandry that cannot be solved.... you're questions about removing the mindblock would involve having an individual make an assertion of beliefs, follow with numerous questions to set up a hypothetical situation in which involves this individual personaly that agreggates their aforementioned assertion then return to the truth of the behaviour and it's absurdity ... althought this does follow a form of confession and shock reconditioning, i.e. brainwashing techniques, it soley alloys for a situation in ehich the individual must now question their personal belief system. the next step endangers you through you're own ego because of the new found power you now have found but also by the reality that you must redirect and lead them out of the darkness, placing you in the position of authority which is an intoxicant unto itself.. thank you for listening

Subverting US Education
Concerning education... The public school system in America can be found in cookie cutter fashion across the nation with small discrepancies such as funding differences that only result in carpeting and extra technological facilities for those with a higher income constituency. one point not noted here was the integration of a bell system to alert students of time to change classes, lunch breaks or recess, all of which are conditioning for factory work which has used the same method to alert workers of shift changes etc. though a wholly new point is the extreme girly man attitude of the school system towards violence, when i was in school a person picked on you and you met him in the schoolyard and beat the crap out of them and then there were no more problems from that person; no with zero tolerance ( which by the way, began well before school shootings and started just before I graduated in 1990 ) the school system regards all acts of fighting as intolerable, even self defense, a good student, a nerd or dork they might be called has no recourse if continuously victimized.
Should they fight back, and it is well known that the picking occurs without teachers ever knowing, and the victim of this intentional humiliation decides to put the bully in his place he risks his chances for future education at the college of choice, permanent suspension from school and being stigmatized, all these things are the reason why generally harmless schoolyard fight that resulted in a bloody nose or maybe a black eye escalated into columbine. Reply: Too true, been there done that. Thank You. Ed.
