GAZlighting by Anarchists?


With the plethora of new tyrannical legislation under cover of COVID19, many are remembering and praising Ayn Rand's phantom character, John Galt. Thirty-three times in Atlas Shrugged, Rand asks the question: “Who is John Galt?” YET, it seems that, over the years, few have taken the time to reply, so I refurbish a portion of a Déjà Vu ~ Times answer1 from 2012 to remind lamenting, budding rights-activists that their “anarchist” John Galt is probably not who they think he is.

For and from the record,2 John Galt is:
the man who claims that Galt’s Gulch ... (Galt's Autonomous Zone, i.e., GAZ in latter-day parlance) has no rules (D:544) — EXCEPT the rule that there are no rules. OH, AND the rule “not to give to the world the benefit of [one’s] mind” (D:569). OH, AND since there are really no rules, there are several GAZ “directives” as in:
▪ the word “give” is forbidden in the valley (D:544)
▪ no one can leave GAZ during the month of rest from the world (D:578)
▪ no communication with the outside world is allowed while in GAZ (D:581)
▪ no disclosure of any nature or degree about GAZ to the outside world is permitted (D:615)
▪ there are to be no gifts or favors, only earnings in GAZ (D:578+; 544)
▪ no currency but Milligan mint is accepted in GAZ (D:554)
▪ one doesn’t ask for help (D:575)
▪ self-sacrifice is forbidden3 (D:769)
▪ the requirement to pursue self-interest and maximum profit prevails
▪ “there can be no collective commitments in [GAZ] and that families or relatives are not allowed to come here, unless each person takes the striker's oath by his own independent conviction.” (D:598)
▪ the law of the voluntary contract governs4 (D:810)
▪ everyone who enters GAZ takes the oath: "I swear—by my life and my love of it—that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."5 (D:557)
▪ “Nobody stays in [GAZ] except by a full, conscious choice based on a full, conscious knowledge of every fact involved in his decision. Nobody stays here by faking reality[6] in any manner whatever." (D:605)
▪ everyone MUST be a competitive, achieving person of ambition and competence
▪ violence (normally taboo) will be met with violence (no “turn the other cheek” nonsense) (D:779)
▪ there shall be no sloth7
▪ “moochers,” “looters,” “cannibals” are forbidden
▪ the support of “moochers,” “looters,” “cannibals,” is forbidden
▪ (plus how many other unexpressed expectations and directives might Galt pronounce to counter opposing expectations and beliefs of newcomers to GAZ?)
So, do we have any realists ready to move to GAZ? Or to other AZs that are cropping-up in 2020?

Just watch the attempted coverage of these “free” zones by disliked or independent media. Freedom from coercion is not the rule. The rule is replacement of abusive coercion and exclusion by one's preferred brand of coercion and exclusion. That is the reality.

So, could we term Rand's “GAZ” a form of GAZlighting of innocents who know-not the reality of human nature? Anarchy is a vacuum that fills almost instantly with tyrants. That's the reality of “mankind” and “human nature” in this fallen world. Just ask the Seattle CHAZ/CHOP innocents and “summer-of-love” mayor about co-opting and tyranny. In the beginning, all might seem calm, peaceful, respectful, inclusive, utopian, but reality soon intervenes as a new / old domination system invades the Shangri-La.8 SO

Wake Up
Governors | Mayors | theoretical Anarchists | Innocents | Citizens

Defunding / disbanding the police, even as abusive as some of them are, creates a vacuum into which bands of mercenaries will rush — mercenaries already visa-ed, prepped, weaponized, and waiting with baited breath for the order to roll-out the WO (camouflaged as World Order). And as horrific as recent events have been, they pale to what is planned unless WE, like Nineveh,9 wake up and repent.

Yes, anarchists, I think that perhaps 97% of our laws and “authorities” are unnecessary, excessive, abusive, AND often unlawful, but GAZlighting oneself and others about the benignity of “human nature”10 while also ignoring the inner and outer social half of the human quadrant of reality (vis-à-vis the inner / outer individual half) distorts the options and solutions. Let us honestly look at human nature as it really is, as it really has been, and as it will continue to be if we don't address unpleasant, galling truths about it and our delusions and obsessions with power, gain, and glory.

WO? WOE?

(as in World Order? —  as in WO-Everlasting?)

IF
How many hoops
will we tolerate?
    ● we reap what we sow;1
    ● corrupted science2 is our hope and choice for a better, safer world;
    ● addicts of power / dominators via technocracy are exacerbating crises by pushing everything and everyone to the extreme in order to implement / justify tyrannical powers;

what might be the applicable “law irrevocably decreed”3 that will eventually prevail for such abusers of power and knowledge?

Could it be that abusing masters and their willing aides enforcing egregious controls will, in the judgment, become (robotic) servants while humble servants of the people will become enlightened, salvific masters of knowledge and truth?4 that abusers will become subject to the very tyranny of “order” they sought to inflict upon others as Justice and Judgment take the bench?

Thus, it might be enlightening to take all the WOs and WOEs of scripture and read them in an expanded form of World Order and World Order Everlasting and see if there are any insights about these last days and the consequences for those who implement or choose the Domination System of World Order (WO). Here are only a few examples of the 225 occurrences of wo and woe in the Books honored by the People of the Books.5
O that ye would awake; awake from a deep sleep, yea, even from the sleep of hell, and shake off the awful chains by which ye are bound, which are the chains which bind the children of men, that they are carried away captive down to the eternal gulf of misery and WOE.6

But WO unto the rich, who are rich as to the things of the world. For because they are rich they despise the poor, and they persecute the meek, and their hearts are upon their treasures; wherefore, their treasure is their god. And behold, their treasure shall perish with them also.
And WO unto the deaf that will not hear; for they shall perish.
WO unto the blind that will not see; for they shall perish also.
WO unto the uncircumcised of heart, for a knowledge of their iniquities shall smite them at the last day.
WO unto the liar, for he shall be thrust down to hell.
WO unto the murderer who deliberately killeth, for he shall die.
WO unto them who commit whoredoms, for they shall be thrust down to hell.
Yea, WO unto those that worship idols, for the devil of all devils delighteth in them.
And, in fine, WO unto all those who die in their sins; for they shall return to God, and behold his face, and remain in their sins.7

Therefore, WO be unto him that is at ease in Zion!
WO be unto him that crieth: All is well!
Yea, WO be unto him that hearkeneth unto the precepts of men, and denieth the power of God, and the gift of the Holy Ghost!
Yea, WO be unto him that saith: We have received, and we need no more!
And in fine, WO unto all those who tremble, and are angry because of the truth of God! For behold, he that is built upon the rock receiveth it with gladness; and he that is built upon a sandy foundation trembleth lest he shall fall.
WO be unto him that shall say: We have received the word of God, and we need no more of the word of God, for we have enough!
For behold, thus saith the Lord God: I will give unto the children of men line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little; and blessed are those who hearken unto my precepts, and lend an ear unto my counsel, for they shall learn wisdom; for unto him that receiveth I will give more; and from them that shall say, We have enough, from them shall be taken away even that which they have.
Cursed is he that putteth his trust in man, or maketh flesh his arm, or shall hearken unto the precepts of men, save their precepts shall be given by the power of the Holy Ghost.
WO be unto the Gentiles, saith the Lord God of Hosts! For notwithstanding I shall lengthen out mine arm unto them from day to day, they will deny me; nevertheless, I will be merciful unto them, saith the Lord God, if they will repent and come unto me; for mine arm is lengthened out all the day long, saith the Lord God of Hosts.8
Could choosing or acquiescing to WO — the Domination System — be the second Fall — an inverse of Eden — a fall out of a state of agency into a state of domination like unto the current WO that is unfolding before our very eyes? In Eden, we fell into a state of mortal flesh and greater agency. If we insist on abusing our agency and flesh or passively acquiescing to its loss or technocratic transmutation, will we fall again — into a state of submutation — into having the gift of our greater agency removed because we cannot be trusted with it or the increasing power9 of increasing agency that comes in becoming truly human through the grace of the great human prototype, the Son of God?

Let us awaken to what the WO might mean — total control of (transmutated / submutated) humans10 as if they were programmed robots doing whatever the master demands or programs. (See how easily the initial stage was implemented in recent months / decades!)

God, Justice, Judgment, Mercy, Truth, and Divine Law intend us for more than mere robotics, if only we want that more than we want the “safety and promises” of WO. BUT if we choose robotic obedience to save us from invisible, never-ending threats prophesied (and prototyped?) by addicts of power, gain, and fame, WHY should we, in an unrepentant state,11 expect a result better than WOE pursuant to the law of the harvest?12

Déjà Vu — from circa BC 62?

(from the Ancient Americas)

“Stirring ourselves ... for the welfare and the freedom of this people”

This morning, I read the lament of an ancient North / South American military leader who “was angry with the government, because of their indifference concerning the freedom of their country.”1 Over the years I had read this chapter many times, but this time, it sounded current — more than an echomore than historymore like a ringing condemnation applicable to this very hour. A resounding condemnation because so many of us seem asleep to the reality of this awful situation that we have allowed to get above us;2 asleep because so many seem blissfully content to wait for some “authority” to tell us when to be concerned — when to act;3 näive because we let horrific local events deflect us from the global roll-out of tyranny when we should conjoin the horrific local and the horrific global in a unified, non-violent, mass rejection of the Powers and their destruction of the rights and freedoms of humanity.

If we do not know there is a murderous combination that has already destroyed thousands of lives in furthering an agenda of power and gain — a murderous combination with the intent to destroy millions, if not billions, more, and to overthrow the freedom of all peoples and all lands, then we will remain complicit, culpable sitting ducks4 — the very lamentation from BC 62.
10 And now, my beloved brethren—for ye ought to be beloved; yea, and ye ought to have stirred yourselves more diligently for the welfare and the freedom of this people; but behold, ye have neglected them insomuch that the blood of thousands shall come upon your heads for vengeance; yea, for known unto God were all their cries, and all their sufferings—
11 Behold, could ye suppose that ye could sit upon your thrones, and because of the exceeding goodness of God ye could do nothing and he would deliver you? Behold, if ye have supposed this ye have supposed in vain.
12 Do ye suppose that, because so many of your brethren have been killed it is because of their wickedness? I say unto you, if ye have supposed this ye have supposed in vain; for I say unto you, there are many who have fallen by the sword; and behold it is to your condemnation;
13 For the Lord suffereth the righteous to be slain that his justice and judgment may come upon the wicked; therefore ye need not suppose that the righteous are lost because they are slain; but behold, they do enter into the rest of the Lord their God.
14 And now behold, I say unto you, I fear exceedingly that the judgments of God will come upon this people, because of their exceeding slothfulness, yea, even the slothfulness of our government, and their exceedingly great neglect towards their brethren, yea, towards those who have been slain.
15 For were it not for the wickedness which first commenced at our head, we could have withstood our enemies that they could have gained no power over us.
16 Yea, had it not been for the war which broke out among ourselves; yea, were it not for these king–men, who caused so much bloodshed among ourselves; yea, at the time we were contending among ourselves, if we had united our strength as we hitherto have done; yea, had it not been for the desire of power and authority which those king–men had over us; had they been true to the cause of our freedom, and united with us, and gone forth against our enemies, instead of taking up their swords against us, which was the cause of so much bloodshed among ourselves; yea, if we had gone forth against them in the strength of the Lord, we should have dispersed our enemies, for it would have been done, according to the fulfilling of his word.
17 But behold, now the Lamanites are coming upon us, taking possession of our lands, and they are murdering our people with the sword, yea, our women and our children, and also carrying them away captive, causing them that they should suffer all manner of afflictions, and this because of the great wickedness of those who are seeking for power and authority, yea, even those king–men.
18 But why should I say much concerning this matter? For we know not but what ye yourselves are seeking for authority. We know not but what ye are also traitors to your country.
19 Or is it that ye have neglected us because ye are in the heart of our country and ye are surrounded by security, that ye do not cause food to be sent unto us, and also men to strengthen our armies?
20 Have ye forgotten the commandments of the Lord your God? Yea, have ye forgotten the captivity of our fathers? Have ye forgotten the many times we have been delivered out of the hands of our enemies?
21 Or do ye suppose that the Lord will still deliver us, while we sit upon our thrones and do not make use of the means which the Lord has provided for us?
22 Yea, will ye sit in idleness while ye are surrounded with thousands of those, yea, and tens of thousands, who do also sit in idleness, while there are thousands round about in the borders of the land who are falling by the sword, yea, wounded and bleeding?
23 Do ye suppose that God will look upon you as guiltless while ye sit still and behold these things? Behold I say unto you, Nay. Now I would that ye should remember that God has said that the inward vessel shall be cleansed first, and then shall the outer vessel be cleansed also.
24 And now, except ye do repent of that which ye have done, and begin to be up and doing, and send forth food and men unto us, and also unto Helaman, that he may support those parts of our country which he has regained, and that we may also recover the remainder of our possessions in these parts, behold it will be expedient that we contend no more with the Lamanites until we have first cleansed our inward vessel, yea, even the great head of our government.
25 And except ye grant mine epistle, and come out and show unto me a true spirit of freedom, and strive to strengthen and fortify our armies, and grant unto them food for their support, behold I will leave a part of my freemen to maintain this part of our land, and I will leave the strength and the blessings of God upon them, that none other power can operate against them—
26 And this because of their exceeding faith, and their patience in their tribulations—
27 And I will come unto you, and if there be any among you that has a desire for freedom, yea, if there be even a spark of freedom remaining, behold I will stir up insurrections among you, even until those who have desires to usurp power and authority shall become extinct.
28 Yea, behold I do not fear your power nor your authority, but it is my God whom I fear; and it is according to his commandments that I do take my sword to defend the cause of my country, and it is because of your iniquity that we have suffered so much loss.
29 Behold it is time, yea, the time is now at hand, that except ye do bestir yourselves in the defence of your country and your little ones, the sword of justice doth hang over you; yea, and it shall fall upon you and visit you even to your utter destruction.
30 Behold, I wait for assistance from you; and, except ye do administer unto our relief, behold, I come unto you, even in the land of Zarahemla, and smite you with the sword, insomuch that ye can have no more power to impede the progress of this people in the cause of our freedom.
31 For behold, the Lord will not suffer that ye shall live and wax strong in your iniquities to destroy his righteous people.
32 Behold, can you suppose that the Lord will spare you and come out in judgment against the Lamanites, when it is the tradition of their fathers that has caused their hatred, yea, and it has been redoubled by those who have dissented from us, while your iniquity is for the cause of your love of glory and the vain things of the world?
33 Ye know that ye do transgress the laws of God, and ye do know that ye do trample them under your feet. Behold, the Lord saith unto me: If those whom ye have appointed your governors do not repent of their sins and iniquities, ye shall go up to battle against them.
34 And now behold, I, Moroni, am constrained, according to the covenant which I have made to keep the commandments of my God; therefore I would that ye should adhere to the word of God, and send speedily unto me of your provisions and of your men, and also to Helaman.
35 And behold, if ye will not do this I come unto you speedily; for behold, God will not suffer that we should perish with hunger; therefore he will give unto us of your food, even if it must be by the sword. Now see that ye fulfil the word of God.
36 Behold, I am Moroni, your chief captain. I seek not for power, but to pull it down. I seek not for honor of the world, but for the glory of my God, and the freedom and welfare of my country. And thus I close mine epistle.5
Yes, Moroni misread the supposed inaction of the Governor Pahoran, not knowing that treasonous insiders were trying to overthrow Pahoran's rule, thus consuming all his energy and resources. So, yes inaction was not Pahoran's sin, but what of us? Perhaps Moroni's words are meant for US.

2. Book of Mormon | Ether 8:22–24 ~ And whatsoever nation shall uphold such secret combinations, to get power and gain, until they shall spread over the nation, behold, they shall be destroyed; for the Lord will not suffer that the blood of his saints, which shall be shed by them, shall always cry unto him from the ground for vengeance upon them and yet he avenge them not. Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain—and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be. Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up.

Some day, We the People will be forced to acknowledge how much death and dying has been orchestrated in secret chambers for decades — death and dying, abuse and torture, pain and suffering that we refused to see despite the myriad witnesses, thus a few more words to ponder about inaction from Moroni's epistle:
6 And now behold, we desire to know the cause of this exceedingly great neglect; yea, we desire to know the cause of your thoughtless state.
7 Can you think to sit upon your thrones in a state of thoughtless stupor, while your enemies are spreading the work of death around you? Yea, while they are murdering thousands of your brethren—
 8 Yea, even they who have looked up to you for protection, yea, have placed you in a situation that ye might have succored them, yea, ye might have sent armies unto them, to have strengthened them, and have saved thousands of them from falling by the sword. (Book of Mormon | Alma 60:6-8)

Déjà Vu ~ from circa BC 72?

(from Ancient America)

Power-Plays: On & On & On

As we read below, can we see latter-day parallels? Could we substitute:
Nephites = those of every nation, kindred, tongue, religion, race, and people who (when not distracted*) believe in / advocate for / defend human rights and freedoms?
Amalekites / Zoramites = the leaders, alleged elites, supporters, and sustainers of corrupted science and government for the purpose of pursuing and protecting power, gain, and glory?

Lamanites = the distracted* population of every nation, kindred, tongue, religion, race, and people (including Nephite dissenters) whom the alleged leaders and elites seek to deceive, blind, stir up, control, and manipulate into supporting and carrying out their (oft-concealed) agendas for pursuing and protecting power, gain, and glory?
Church = the foundation of liberty?
Read On ~ BC 72:
5 And it came to pass that ... a man by the name of Zerahemnah was their leader.
6 And now, as the Amalekites were of a more wicked and murderous disposition than the Lamanites were, in and of themselves, therefore, Zerahemnah appointed chief captains over the Lamanites, and they were all Amalekites and Zoramites.
7 Now this he did that he might preserve their hatred towards the Nephites, that he might bring them into subjection to the accomplishment of his designs.
8 For behold, his designs were to stir up the Lamanites to anger against the Nephites; this he did that he might usurp great power over them, and also that he might gain power over the Nephites by bringing them into bondage.
9 And now the design of the Nephites was to support their lands, and their houses, and their wives, and their children, that they might preserve them from the hands of their enemies; and also that they might preserve their rights and their privileges, yea, and also their liberty, that they might worship God according to their desires.
10 For they knew that if they should fall into the hands of the [Amalekites / Zoramites /] Lamanites, that whosoever should worship God in spirit and in truth, the true and the living God, the [Amalekites / Zoramites /] Lamanites would destroy.1

3 Now the leader of those who were wroth against their brethren was a large and a strong man; and his name was Amalickiah.
4 And Amalickiah was desirous to be a king; and those people who were wroth were also desirous that he should be their king; and they were the greater part of them the lower judges of the land, and they were seeking for power.
5 And they had been led by the flatteries of Amalickiah, that if they would support him and establish him to be their king that he would make them rulers over the people.
6 Thus they were led away by Amalickiah to dissensions, notwithstanding the preaching of Helaman and his brethren, yea, notwithstanding their exceedingly great care over the church, for they were high priests over the church.
7 And there were many in the church who believed in the flattering word of Amalickiah, therefore they dissented even from the church; and thus were the affairs of the people of Nephi exceedingly precarious and dangerous, notwithstanding their great victory which they had had over the [Amalekites / Zoramites /] Lamanites, and their great rejoicings which they had had because of their deliverance by the hand of the Lord.
8 Thus we see how quick the children of men do forget the Lord their God, yea, how quick to do iniquity, and to be led away by the evil one.
9 Yea, and we also see the great wickedness one very wicked man can cause to take place among the children of men.
10 Yea, we see that Amalickiah, because he was a man of cunning device and a man of many flattering words, that he led away the hearts of many people to do wickedly; yea, and to seek to destroy the church of God, and to destroy the foundation of liberty which God had granted unto them, or which blessing God had sent upon the face of the land for the righteous' sake.2

1.AND now it came to pass that, as soon as Amalickiah had obtained the kingdom he began to inspire the hearts of the Lamanites against the people of Nephi; yea, he did appoint men to speak unto the Lamanites from their towers, against the Nephites.
2 And thus he did inspire their hearts against the Nephites, insomuch that in the latter end of the nineteenth year of the reign of the judges, he having accomplished his designs thus far, yea, having been made king over the Lamanites, he sought also to reign over all the land, yea, and all the people who were in the land, the Nephites as well as the Lamanites.
3 Therefore he had accomplished his design, for he had hardened the hearts of the Lamanites and blinded their minds, and stirred them up to anger, insomuch that he had gathered together a numerous host to go to battle against the Nephites.
4 For he was determined, because of the greatness of the number of his people, to overpower the Nephites and to bring them into bondage.
5 And thus he did appoint chief captains of the Zoramites, they being the most acquainted with the strength of the Nephites, and their places of resort, and the weakest parts of their cities; therefore he appointed them to be chief captains over his armies.3
The above accounts detail only two of the many power-wars profiled in the ancient North / South American record. As for us, WE are now in the midst of the most egregious, murderous power-play in history.

It Is Not Lawful

Human beings are social creatures. We need to live in relationships with each other. ... in fact, it is essential to our fullest well-being. ... being known and loved and knowing and loving others are what human beings were made for ... 1
So, what if the alleged risk to people in this crisis pales in comparison to the damage being done by the lock-down and the fearful, distrusting, social isolation? Consider three celebrity doctors, Dr. Drew, Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, who spoke passionately about the devastating consequences of the so-called New Normal.2 Then consider the power of the Powers as you listen to their subsequent apologies as they contradict their knowledge, training, expertise, and passion:


TV DOCS OWNED BY PHARMA? (The HighWire with Del Bigtree | May 1, 2020 | Time 9:34) at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5L-kfn1BGM
In short, we are being told that the normal human life of close associations; hugs; joyful reunions; family feasts; large weddings & funerals; church meetings & gatherings; choir practices; lecture halls; class rooms; playgrounds; parades; social hours; dance clubs; office parties; summer camps; grad gatherings; concert, theater, & sports crowds; etc., etc., etc., have now become unlawful UNLESS the authorities regulate and approve. Suddenly, it seems that much of what we associate with being human has become unlawful.

So what does one do when “It is not lawful”?
AT that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat. But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day. But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him; How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?3

Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath. The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed. He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.4

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.5

Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed [in contravention of the law], and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.6

And [the masters of Lydia] brought [Paul and Silas] to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city, And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.7
Perhaps we need to practice Civil Disobedience when the Powers become uncivil; honor only that which is honorable; refuse to be one of Stanley Milgram's SHOCKING 65%.8

Yes, there is risk to acting with courage: risk that we will be targeted by the Powers; risk that their technology and bio-weapons will be used against us and our loved ones; risk that things might get worse as the Powers fight to retain their power, position, and prospects. And yes, this same question rings out in every nation: “What will become of me, if I leave their employ?” Perhaps the more pressing question is: What will become of this world, of human rights, of my fellow creatures, if I do not leave their employ? In the end, leaving might be a matter of life, even in death. But what is the alternative if the choice is for freedom and future?

The End of Man?

(As God Created Them, Male & Female?)

This phrase “end of man” appears twice in scripture, coming from Lehi1 and Nephi. Nephi uses it thus:
... And because that I [God] have spoken one word ye need not suppose that I cannot speak another; for my work is not yet finished; neither shall it be until the end of man, neither from that time henceforth and forever.2
Rather interesting phrasing! — “for my work is not yet finished, neither shall it be UNTIL the end of man” and then this: “neither from that time (the end of man?) henceforth and forever.”

What does this mean — the end of man?

Could it mean (in part) what we are witnessing now — transhumanism,3 transgenderism,4  or even more subtly, the injection of messenger RNA designed to “trick the body” into immune response behavior,5 AND, as some scientists warn, potentially changing the human genome henceforth and forever6 via irreversible integration into the cell nucleus. Of, course the vaxcine7 vendors deny integration, but some article writers8  have the courage to admit the many unknowns in the novel mRNA vaxcines. Yet, the rushed mRNA vaxcine to “end” this crisis — to achieve herd immunity via herd obedience — is being touted as a never before offered(?) messenger RNA — a “savior” vaxcine — to restore our lives, our human rights, our future.

And what are these vaxcine vendors counting on to achieve their herd obedience (and their fabulous fortunes)? Mainly, four things: 1) the nature of humans to trust in the touted knowledge and altruisms of authorities / experts; 2) on the Stanley Milgram9 discovery that nigh 65% of test subjects will defer to the voice of authority even when it goes against their conscience, knowledge, and human rights; 3) on coercion by authorities / experts and peers of the recalcitrant 35%; and 4) fear.

Do we recognize what is being offered here? another chance to improve on God's10 plan and performance? another bite of the apple? another innovation and promise of the Domination System?

Will we acquiesce to “the end of man” as created by God, or will we commit now to the Extreme Trust that is going to be required in coming days — a Trust that will test us to the limit? Will we render evil for the evil that has come OR will we, beyond our human nature and capacity, render good for evil, thus heaping coals of fire (read: the purging fire of awakened guilt — the forerunner of repentance and change) upon the heads of our abusers,11 as happened in the account of the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi?12

How we will render good for the greater evil that is coming,13 I do not know. I know it is not in my nature because “justice” calls louder to me than mercy. But I also know that the spirit-of-power is dangerous beyond measure despite awareness.14 I know what I would like to do with abusers of power and people, if I had the power. Nothing violent, I tell myself — but how do I know what the spirit-of-power15 and situation might elicit?

In any event, it appears that “the end of man” and of this world (as God created us and it) is nigh at hand,16 YET the end is not the End, for the Work goes on “from that time [the end of man] henceforth and forever.”

Do not despair.17 The end [of man's corrupted and corrupting work] is not the End of God's Work. Our work is to be facing the right direction, walking, talking, serving, loving, forgiving, and praying.

1. Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 2:15–17 ~ And to bring about his eternal purposes in the end of man, after he had created our first parents, and the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and in fine, all things which are created, it must needs be that there was an opposition; even the forbidden fruit in opposition to the tree of life; the one being sweet and the other bitter. Wherefore, the Lord God gave unto man that he should act for himself. Wherefore, man could not act for himself save it should be that he was enticed by the one or the other. And I, Lehi, according to the things which I have read, must needs suppose that an angel of God, according to that which is written, had fallen from heaven; wherefore, he became a devil, having sought that which was evil before God.

Already, for decades, “scientists” have been experimenting with augmentation via MKUltra and similar experimentation. The witnesses, even before Congress are prolific, but of course always disparaged to protect the guilty and the Powers-That-Be. With advancing technology, sci-fi is becoming sci-real.
4. This is not to allege that transgender states have all been designed, but considering the “science” and déjà vus of power, control, curiosity, psychopathy, etc; of MKUltra and the like; and of scientists without conscience, the experimentation, manipulation, and presentation of gender fluidity is and has been a secret and not-so-secret aspect of much of world history.

6. Presently, scientists and investigating journalists who are questioning and warning are being disparaged by the vaxcine vendors, and those who stand to gain beyond our and their wildest imaginations. WHO should we trust: 1) those who have nothing to gain and everything to lose by bucking the Powers; or 2) the Powers who have everything to gain and (apparently, if we go by recent history), nothing to lose by lying, cheating, and stealing.

10. As in geoengineering, GMOs, vaxcine adjuvants, MKUltra, psychotropics, genetic engineering, transhumanism, virus creation; etc. The crime the Powers refuse to admit, is that the vaxcine is being created to counter a man-made virus designed to achieve all that we now see in our world turned upside down for power and gain.

Book of Mormon | Alma 24:20–27 ~ And it came to pass that their brethren, the Lamanites, made preparations for war, and came up to the land of Nephi for the purpose of destroying the king, and to place another in his stead, and also of destroying the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi out of the land. Now when the people saw that they were coming against them they went out to meet them, and prostrated themselves before them to the earth, and began to call on the name of the Lord; and thus they were in this attitude when the Lamanites began to fall upon them, and began to slay them with the sword. And thus without meeting any resistance, they did slay a thousand and five of them; and we know that they are blessed, for they have gone to dwell with their God. Now when the Lamanites saw that their brethren would not flee from the sword, neither would they turn aside to the right hand or to the left, but that they would lie down and perish, and praised God even in the very act of perishing under the sword— Now when the Lamanites saw this they did forbear from slaying them; and there were many whose hearts had swollen in them for those of their brethren who had fallen under the sword, for they repented of the things which they had done. And it came to pass that they threw down their weapons of war, and they would not take them again, for they were stung for the murders which they had committed; and they came down even as their brethren, relying upon the mercies of those whose arms were lifted to slay them. And it came to pass that the people of God were joined that day by more than the number who had been slain; and those who had been slain were righteous people, therefore we have no reason to doubt but what they were saved. And there was not a wicked man slain among them; but there were more than a thousand brought to the knowledge of the truth; thus we see that the Lord worketh in many ways to the salvation of his people.

Believers or Not?


The People of the Books1 are not the only ones calling for prayer. Bruce Lipton & Dr. Buttar2 are among many, but I wonder if our prayers for the world whatever our faith, would have more efficacy if we let God know that we are NOW awake (as He commanded) to the awful situation3 that we have allowed to get above us. If we believe this is a temporary situation, then we are tragically näive about the nature and science of Power4 throughout the ages (and of God's laments and warnings about it).

There are perhaps but two ways this crisis of control will be relieved:
1. if God, the Creator, intervenes in some fashion (as He has done many times in recorded scripture5) because of awakened, fervent prayer (and repentance) of people with sincere intent6 to pursue and honor truth and justice; OR
2. if the Power System senses it is loosing control7 and must “cure” this crisis in a miraculous feat of incredible science, creativity, and magnanimity as they regroup, re-assess, re-strategize, and learn from “their mistakes” and from humanity's “will to freedom” — (BUT know this: it will be to abide only a short time as they re-orchestrate a more perfect plandemic upon a more immune-compromised, programmed, and fearful people because the “will to power and gain” will never cease in the presence of mortal man).
The perennial pursuit of power and gain is THE reality (hammered out déjà vu on déjà vu in history), whatever reality or history we might pretend, imagine, or prefer.

Thus, let us pray as believers — Believers
● in God's word that every age has seen Powers' attempt to destroy the agency and human rights of man;8
● in the tragic reality of oppressive secret combinations, oaths, plans, and conspiracies for power and gain, also manifested in every age;9
● in the nature and disposition of almost ALL men to abuse power10 (especially when aided & enticed by technology);
● in the power of awakened, forgiving, loving, repentant humans to overcome evil as they call upon God for both justice and mercy.11
So in the spirit of awakened prayer, I share again a suggestion for a daily prayer (or variation thereof) that I posted on December 17, 201712:
My Daily Prayer: from hereon to eternity

Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 29:10–11 ~ Wherefore, because that ye have a Bible ye need not suppose that it contains all my words; neither need ye suppose that I have not caused more to be written. For I command all men, both in the east and in the west, and in the north, and in the south, and in the islands of the sea, that they shall write the words which I speak unto them; for out of the books which shall be written I will judge the world, every man according to their works, according to that which is written.

(NOTE: My understanding of Consciousness differs from theirs, but they are, in my view, seeking to do that which will bless the world. I believe that a call to the Creator for Love without honoring His attribute of Justice is to be un-awakened to the full meaning and purpose of this life. Love is not a cure all, for as we can clearly see, God's love still leaves agency intact — an agency that has brought us to this "awful situation" because we have been so assiduous in ignoring justice and judgment in our own society and nation. Yes, we are to love and pray for the enemy, but not pretend that his crimes and conspiracies do not exist.)
3. Book of Mormon | Ether 8:23-24 ~ ... suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain—and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, ...

Wherefore, I, Moroni, am commanded to write these things that evil may be done away, and that the time may come that Satan may have no power upon the hearts of the children of men, but that they may be persuaded to do good continually, that they may come unto the fountain of all righteousness and be saved.

For behold, there is a curse upon all this land, that destruction shall come upon all those workers of darkness, according to the power of God, when they are fully ripe; therefore I desire that this people might not be destroyed. Therefore ye shall keep these secret plans of their oaths and their covenants from this people, and only their wickedness and their murders and their abominations shall ye make known unto them; and ye shall teach them to abhor such wickedness and abominations and murders; and ye shall also teach them that these people were destroyed on account of their wickedness and abominations and their murders. For behold, they murdered all the prophets of the Lord who came among them to declare unto them concerning their iniquities; and the blood of those whom they murdered did cry unto the Lord their God for vengeance upon those who were their murderers; and thus the judgments of God did come upon these workers of darkness and secret combinations. Yea, and cursed be the land forever and ever unto those workers of darkness and secret combinations, even unto destruction, except they repent before they are fully ripe. And now, my son, remember the words which I have spoken unto you; trust not those secret plans unto this people, but teach them an everlasting hatred against sin and iniquity.
Book of Mormon | Ether 13:15 ~ ... there were many who rose up, who were mighty men, and sought to destroy Coriantumr by their secret plans of wickedness, of which hath been spoken.
Book of Mormon | Helaman 6:21–31 ~ But behold, Satan did stir up the hearts of the more part of the Nephites, insomuch that they did unite with those bands of robbers, and did enter into their covenants and their oaths, that they would protect and preserve one another in whatsoever difficult circumstances they should be placed, that they should not suffer for their murders, and their plunderings, and their stealings. And it came to pass that they did have their signs, yea, their secret signs, and their secret words; and this that they might distinguish a brother who had entered into the covenant, that whatsoever wickedness his brother should do he should not be injured by his brother, nor by those who did belong to his band, who had taken this covenant. And thus they might murder, and plunder, and steal, and commit whoredoms and all manner of wickedness, contrary to the laws of their country and also the laws of their God. And whosoever of those who belonged to their band should reveal unto the world of their wickedness and their abominations, should be tried, not according to the laws of their country, but according to the laws of their wickedness, which had been given by Gadianton and Kishkumen. Now behold, it is these secret oaths and covenants which Alma commanded his son should not go forth unto the world, lest they should be a means of bringing down the people unto destruction. Now behold, those secret oaths and covenants did not come forth unto Gadianton from the records which were delivered unto Helaman; but behold, they were put into the heart of Gadianton by that same being who did entice our first parents to partake of the forbidden fruit— Yea, that same being who did plot with Cain, that if he would murder his brother Abel it should not be known unto the world. And he did plot with Cain and his followers from that time forth. And also it is that same being who put it into the hearts of the people to build a tower sufficiently high that they might get to heaven. And it was that same being who led on the people who came from that tower into this land; who spread the works of darkness and abominations over all the face of the land, until he dragged the people down to an entire destruction, and to an everlasting hell. Yea, it is that same being who put it into the heart of Gadianton to still carry on the work of darkness, and of secret murder; and he has brought it forth from the beginning of man even down to this time. And behold, it is he who is the author of all sin. And behold, he doth carry on his works of darkness and secret murder, and doth hand down their plots, and their oaths, and their covenants, and their plans of awful wickedness, from generation to generation according as he can get hold upon the hearts of the children of men. And now behold, he had got great hold upon the hearts of the Nephites; yea, insomuch that they had become exceedingly wicked; yea, the more part of them had turned out of the way of righteousness, and did trample under their feet the commandments of God, and did turn unto their own ways, and did build up unto themselves idols of their gold and their silver.
Book of Mormon | Ether 10:33 ~ And in the days of Com there began to be robbers in the land; and they adopted the old plans, and administered oaths after the manner of the ancients, and sought again to destroy the kingdom.

Sitting Ducks?


If anyone wants a clear and prophetic understanding of what is in the WO-works at this very moment, listen to this entire podcast by James Corbett posted today – this Good Friday — April 10. If one does not have time for the whole podcast, begin at minute 39:05. But I will be bold enough to say “it is an imperative duty that we owe to our God, our families, our neighbours, our communities, our countries, our freedoms, and our human rights to WAKE-UP now to the “awful” situation that we have been pretending will cure itself when the virus is defeated (with global, mandatory vaccination being the current mantra). This podcast is a wake-up call if ever there was one!


Corona World Order (corbettreport | April 10, 2020 | Time 59:17) at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HB00mLArYBQ
Are we just going to sit and wait for some authority to tell us when to think, to act, to move? Are we just going to cave to the digital certificate mantra? When we know a storm is inevitable and imminent, do we just sit, waiting for instructions, watching Netflix, the MSM, reading novels, distracting ourselves, trying not to be fearful. Yes, we are to “fear not.” We are to trust in God, but God expects preparation and action — expects us to plan and think ahead when a situation is deteriorating day by day. This whole scenario has been perfectly designed to keep people distrusting and apart – unable to unite against a tyranny that has been millennia in the planning and simulation. It is all being presented as necessary and reasonable, but if we have learned anything from the Gadiantons1 and Kishkumens2 of ancient America, it is that the persecuted and oppressed must unite against the evil that seeks total control and domination.

If we think that the latter-day evil we face is just a virus, we will be driven from fear to fear — we will be sitting ducks for the WO. Let us at least begin by sitting down with our families and listening to this podcast and then discussing how we, as individuals, family groups, and communities intend to respond to demands that violate conscience and human rights. Let us not be sitting ducks. Let us think this through and know in advance what we intend.

Lullaby*?


Does it help:
● if a father of a teenager asks us to get his child up and ready for early morning seminary and we proceed to sing a lullaby?
● if we are commanded to wake up to an “awful situation”1 and instead, we insist on acting as if the crushing restrictions of the “situation” are justified or that they are only temporary accommodations to Nature's naturally recycling assaults (especially if we ignore that Nature has often become an impressee2 of long-simmering and simulated abominations)?3
● if we are soldiers in the midst of battle and our commander believes (per the expertise of X masquerading as friend of US) that special forces can battle a crisis by directing all focus, energy, and resources toward controlling or expunging Y (a technocratic, endlessly reproducible corruption patented and owned by X)?
So, what are we to fast and pray for this Good Friday? — for the defeat of or protection against [conscripted, corrupted, CRISPR-ed4] “Nature”? ... Perhaps.

But what are the prayers referred to in John's Revelation that might sync us with or call forth God's will?
And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints[5] upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.6
Could the prayers that might call God out of His hiding place be our own call — our cry — for justice and judgment, mercy and truth to “sweep away the refuge of lies” and to “overflow the hiding place” of evil? because
Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.7
Could this help?
Those who pray do so not because they believe certain intellectual propositions about the value of prayer, but simply because the struggle to be human in the face of suprahuman Powers requires it. The act of praying is itself one of the indispensable means by which we engage the Powers. It is, in fact, that engagement at its most fundamental level, where their secret spell over us is broken and we are reestablished in a bit more of that freedom which is our birthright and potential.8

Intercession is spiritual defiance of what is, in the name of what God has promised. Intercession visualizes an alternative future to the one apparently fated by the momentum of current contradictory forces. It infuses the air of a time yet to be into the suffocating atmosphere of the present. Those who have made peace with injustice, who receive their identity from alienated role-definitions, and who benefit economically from social inequities, are not likely to be such intercessors.9

Prayer, in short, is the field-hospital in which the diseased spirituality that we have contracted from the Powers can most directly be diagnosed and treated.10
Has the trumpet11 passed to the seven angels of John's Revelation and been multiplied?12
Heaven itself falls silent. The heavenly hosts and celestial spheres suspend their ceaseless singing so that the prayers of the saints on earth can be heard. The seven angels of destiny cannot blow the signal of the next times to be until an eighth angel gathers these prayers—prayers for justice, vindication, and victory—and mingles them with incense upon the altar. Silently they rise to the nostrils of God. Then from the same altar the angel fills the same censer with fiery coals and hurls them upon the earth. The earth is convulsed. The silence is shattered. The heavenly liturgy is complete. Now the seven angels who have the seven trumpets make ready to blow.13
How fervent can our prayers be if we do not recognize the “awful situation” that we have allowed to get above us?14

Do we even process what praying for justice and judgment, mercy and truth means in prophecy?

My friends, if we are going to pray for justice and judgment, mercy and truth, we had better be prepared because when the smoke of the incense reaches God, this follows:
And the angel took the [same] censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.15
What else could be more vital to plead for in our prayers and fasting than these four — justice and judgment, mercy (i.e., forgiveness / love), and truth — in this world of domination, violence, hypocrisy, corruption, “lying wonders,”16 invisible / unimaginable bio-weapons, and the sufferings of millions because we have ignored, in our prosperity and blindness, what has been done by US17 for well-over 100 years? What else can we expect? What else should we hope for? What else must we do?

Are lullabies all we will tolerate?
Old Testament | Isaiah 30:814 ~ Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us. Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon: Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant. And he shall break it as the breaking of the potters' vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water withal out of the pit.
Old Testament | Ezekiel 3:17–21 ~ Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
Old Testament | Isaiah 58:1 ~ CRY aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

Therefore, they are left without excuse, and their sins are upon their own heads.
Doctrine and Covenants | Section 63:58 ~ For this is a day of warning, and not a day of many words. For I, the Lord, am not to be mocked in the last days.

Old Testament | Isaiah 59:1–15 ~ BEHOLD, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper. Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace. Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men. We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.
