This interview with Andrew Gavin Marshall on The Boiling Frogs show presents many relevant issues. In a nutshell, Marshall tries to raise our awareness on how the education system and so-called non-profit organizations have come to play a central role in the shaping of people’s minds. We are way passed the point where our universities and NGOs would still be in the business of helping people and caring for their needs as future responsible citizens. We live in an information (read intelligence) era where control has become the objective of every policy maker. The second half of the show is particularly striking for this. Marshall helps us to realize that Foundations such as the Rockefeller, Carnegie and Ford provide founding only to NGOs that have pre-selected agendas and actions that fit with the ideology of these giant corporations. Social engineering is the new science by which oligarchs, industrialists and corporations now control the world. If you control people’s minds, you do actually control them. During the last decades, we have seen the realization of what was only contemplated or projected in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World: A world where every need and desire is foreseen in advance and duly manufactured and presented to the people as a « choice ». NGOs and universities make sure that citizens have a pre-fabricated mind perfectly suited to accept, integrate and consume these ideas, and in turn approved products and services. All for the benefit of giant corporations that came to replace the royal families and the Church as the ruling elite during the 19th and 20th century.
Well, how do you feel on the Day of the End of the World? Personally, not that bad. It could be worse. Christ has risen from the dead and now there are a few things to take into consideration and reflect on. First of all, Jesus was born from biological parents like any other human being. His father like his grand-father was the heir to the throne of David. That’s why in the Gospel Jesus is presented as the God of the Jews. It means literally that he is the biological descendant of King David. Second, as a Jew, he couldn’t not have been married. That was the tradition then like it is today for religious Jews and that would have been unthinkable from him not to do like his ancestors. He got married and had at least a child, again like it was expected in the tradition. After his death or escape for a safer place, his wife fled to France with the child.
Look inside. The power of transformation is within. Don’t look for gurus, leaders, mahatmas. Look inside you and you will find the power to change your life for the better. You are God. That right to be God was taken from you by the Church. The Church wants only one God, the corpse of a man died 2000 years ago and supposedly resurrected. The message of the Gospel is not the resurrection of Christ. It is the power of transformation that exists within us. The Gospel contains a set of values that exist nowhere else in the world in whatever culture, religion, civilization or society. And it is that core of values that we must celebrate, not a glorified corpse. The only thing that comes close to that, is the person and preaching of the Buddha. He was a great man and his teachings inspired a lot of good things among the various Eastern nations.
Today, if there is anything that is resurrecting, it is the Gospel itself, not a person. The Gospel is rising from the dead to teach a world gone crazy how to live and behave in a way that is respectful to others and to creation. The core values of western civilization are resurrecting to show us the way. It’s only up to us to be responsible and act accordingly. You, the individual, is the key of that transformation. It is your turn to rise from the dead and be the image of God.
Again, the excellent Pat Condell strikes back. We had the occasion to hear him plentifully on Islam in the past. Now, he entertains us on Christianity and the Church. He is batting 1000. Obviously, we must be critical of all religions, including our own, in this case Christianity.
