Real Cost of War

What war does to people and nations. 'Cost' is much more than a monetary valuation. War really costs most of us our Humanity!

How Cointelpro changed our History

If you ask most people today why we are in the situation we are in they will probably tell you "this is the way it always was". This is not actually true (in a certain sense), but this is what they think.

There was a Time not too long ago when there were a fairly large number of people who not only knew what was being pushed down our throats by the PTB but were actively doing things to educate and inform others in our societies about what was going on and what to do about it.

Alas, THIS was not to be 'allowed' by the PTB and they pulled out all the stops and worked unrelentingly and unmercifully to destroy these movements and as many of their remnants as could be found and eliminated. This is how they operate.

As the post by "Magus" in this following article by Laura Knight Jadczyk explains, there was absolutely no 'mercy' shown by these people in eliminating any and all threats to their plans:

The Magus and The Swamps of Eugnosia

For those of you who are writing to ask me about the "abovetopsecret" tempest in a teapot, and to those of you sending in information and wanting to know how to get acknowledgement of receipt of said information even though you are using anonymizing emailers, yes I am receiving your messages and I thank you for all the most interesting data. I appreciate your awkward position, that you must live a "double life," so to say, because you are dedicated to your fellow ATS members who are friends and "fellow travelers" (thank you G. for that), and who you feel will eventually get a clue and start waking up, and you want to be there to help them. Just keep sending the data. It is a mighty fine collection and it may be very useful someday. But just now, I think that the status is "'nuff said."

Let's let ATS sort out their own problems. If some of the moderators come to the idea that they may have been manipulated by agents, even if that was never their intent, and they decide to turn things around, they can go into a new inning and the game dynamics may change altogether. I am certainly familiar with groups that have gotten co-opted literally without their awareness that they have been "vectored," and it is a sad day when they wake up and realize the truth. My heart goes out to them. It is like a wife whose husband cheats on her and she is the last to know. When the truth hits her in the face, it is a cruel and devastating blow.

De-Nile is a deep river, and some never make it across because of lack of strength and some are devoured by crocodiles. One should never blame an unconscious agent for being manipulated by psy-ops - it can be THAT subtle! And only time will tell whether the agents are conscious or unconscious. As I quoted Robert Canup saying in my previous post:

"Never ascribe to malice those things which may be explained by stupidity." That is an important phrase, and a necessary one; it keeps people from being paranoid. However, it has a corollary most people don't know: "One MAY ascribe to malice those things which stupidity cannot explain."

I'm not sure that I would even call it stupidity. It is a serious deficit - a lack of adequate psychological knowledge and awareness - a state of ignorance, and ignorance can certainly be cured even if the medicine is hard to swallow!

Today I want to share a different kind of communication that was received this morning. It refers to an eariler post: How to Spot COINTELPRO agents. and I found it to be quite moving as well as chilling in its implications. Remember that in this previous post, I referred to the many early activists who learned about COINTELPRO the hard way, and only after the fact did they put two and two together. I understand that the booklet itself was written in prison. Well, here is additional insight for those of you who want to be geniuses and learn from the mistakes of others. It was written by an individual who posts as "Magus" and who appeared on our modest little forum a couple of weeks ago with some profound insights:

Greetings Forum Friends and Passengers,

The old Magus, being of a more formal time than this era we now traverse, simply cannot countenance warping the standards of his tastes so as to pronounce upon the Good Lady's journal such an unkind name as is "blog" (which resonates upon the tongue as though 'twere describing some misbegotten amphibious creature born in a bog on a log); to describe the Signs writ large and the one who writes them there, when both be filled with Graces and Fair indeed for the readers' eyes to behold, indulge me as I quote:

Taken from Maestra Laura's Missive, "How To Spot COINTELPRO Agents":

"How To Spot a Spy"

One way to neutralize a potential activist is to get them to be in a group that does all the wrong things. Why?

1) The message doesn't get out. 2) A lot of time is wasted 3) The activist is frustrated and discouraged 4) Nothing good is accomplished.

FBI and Police Informers and Infiltrators will infest any group and they have phoney activist organizations established."

And So, Gentle Reader Friends and Forumites,

Look you back but a few Forum pages, and there will you espy the Magus did address himself a letter to another, the Good Lady Cindy of Sheehan, she who fights the BushLiars in her slain cub's name and does Noble Battle to save the cubs of all the other Mama Bears whose soldierkinder do yet live.

'Twas in that epistle to Cindy Sheehan that the Magus described to you, and told you truly True, of the most likely theft, misdirection and futility of participation by all the millions of poor, humble, honest American citizen-prisoners in a phoniest of phony groups of false opposition, dotted and undotted orgs. Poor, hoodwinked and desperate to be heard and seen, to have effect one at all as yet, they've invested everything they had, as yet, into what could only be a False front collection of "opposition" and "progressive" groups.

If the valuing of its sum total be rightfully placed upon the Proof of its Works, then this movement is most useful for GWB and his PTB Masters. They are benefiting enormously from the utter lack of any real and effective, organizated opposition, a worldwide deficit, not just domestic.

Said covert, more than highly likely COINTELPRO, operations were most timely established, in the years immediately pre-junta, by the notorious, but, so we are told to believe, oh so very repentant Mr. George of Soros, Bilderberg mogul extraordinaire.

Now, read again, what is quoted above, reposted at last for these perilous times. 'Tis from a document, a True Work, that I'd thought was long lost forever, and now, good but most painful to see, it has been returned to warn all Humanity. 'Twas written first by those of us, way back then, way back when, way back there while and after we'd first learned the hard Truths it tells.

No, we never "quit" or "sold out" as they swear. A covert, domestic COINTELPRO war took us out. At terrible costs for all of us, we fought with all we had back then. Helplessly we watched as, one by one, like pins in the bowling alley, our compañeros y compañeras began to fall.

In every community, in every human rights, civil rights, democracy advocacy, labor rights, voting rights, womens rights, gay rights and anti-war group or organization, no matter how small, peripheral or fringe, all of our Leaders, our Doers, our Thinkers, our Organizers, our Musicians and Artists and Poets, all of our greatest Lovers of Humanity, and our Trying-To-Be-Liberators of all started getting killed, committing suicide and having fatal accidents, along about 1968 and onward.

They began getting arrested by the thousands, from 1968 onward, and especially after the launching of the "War on Drugs" against them in 1972. Any counterculture figure, from any walk of life, no matter how noble and saintly, began being summarily convicted for crimes done when and where they hadn't even been there, right after the Manson and Einhorn cases had turned judges and juries against us all, from 1970 onward.

The rest were found dead or with their fine brains permanently burned out by overdoses of drugs they'd never been near to at all, or else by suddenly lethal potencies of drugs that they'd taken safely, recreationally, for years without either addiction or other ill effects, until, by the time the SLA was slaughtered to the last woman and child in 1977, in the crawlspace beneath its Philadelphia safe house, the movement was gone.

Those of us left alive had been stricken by a mysterious malady of our minds. Thanks to the Lady Laura, to whom he is forever indebted for finally making it all make sense, the Magus now understands that we were bombarded with brain wave manipulations galore, our thoughts disrupted frequently by mind control technologies and EM bursts, and those of us who have made it back to full clarity and intellect have paid an enormous cost in damages to our bodies and health.

To this day, the Magus has yet to have encountered other former 60s activists who can, and do, clearly, sequentially and with full integration, remember precisely when and why did the action, the movement stop, as to their own active participation in it. To nearly all of us, memories of the years 1972 through 1977 are patchy, disjointed. Everything is sharp before that and after that, but those 5 years are "blurry."

Then, in 1980, AIDS struck and was ignored completely. It was deliberately left to ravish the last remnants of the intellectual brilliance, organizational skills, drive and creative talents of a generation that had launched a powerful, nearly successful rebellion against tyranny in any form, building gratefully upon the works and with the help of the Depression era populists and union folks.

By 1990, almost no one was left from the radical 60s who might have been able to step up into any leadership role, or to guide and encourage the youth of the next generation. Robbed of older peers by all this, and being told the "irresponsible and selfish Baby Boomers who just sold out" Lies, they sadly became and called themselves "Generation X". They still do not know the Truth of what had really happened to those "Boomers" who should have been there to mentor and nurture them. Anyone who might once have filled that role was gone, at least in mind, or in jail, or mental institutions, or graves.

The "Boomers sold out" Lies have reigned for 35 years. But Woodstock is not all that we were and did, nor does it tell the tale truly, my friends, nor fairly, nor do ought than painting the lot of us clowns. But, we were Truth's fighters, and they took us down. The Magus tells Truly because he was there, and right to this minute, old wounds bring him tears. Yet, obviously, he never quit: He IS here.

A Posteritous Admonition

"How To Spot A Spy" you must learn truly for yourselves.

I bid you do, please, now, my Friends, Mark these Facts I tell.

Police accounts and "histories" may have recorded else,

But we were naive victims of fell Liars and foul Stealth.

Be wiser. Be forewarned, then Be less gullible than we.

Be smarter and Be bolder, and then, most of all, Be Free.

Be all you can Be, and you'll Become all that you must,

And do not put your trust in those the easiest to trust.

Bidding You Fondest Delighting in Truths and Things Real,
