The Linguistic challenges of living in another culture go back a long way, way farther back than what we accept as settled Modern History.
The Hundred was an administrative system which I was familiar with having gone to secondary school in rural Oxfordshire, not that it was still in force, only that some very fine examples of ridge and Furrow
“if you are digging up history. You have to dig it all up. If they dig up 60 years , I will dig up 600. If we go back far enough in the history. Always, there will be some grievance, and I´ll fight on him, I´ll fight on you, I´ll fight on everyone. Where is the beginning? I cannot find it?
Dig up all the problems and you will find they have a root cause in one place: Greed. Where there is greed, there is no satisfaction”

The Jante Lagen is something I have mentioned on this blog before, it’s a sort of Hundreds system of collective punishment(responsibility) imposed on the individual by everyone else.
Sweden with its own peculiar constitutional system and history do things differently. The Film the Swedish Theory of Love made by a Half Italian / Half Swedish filmmaker makes the point about the atomisation of the individual
There are ten rules in the law as defined by Sandemose, all expressive of variations on a single theme and usually referred to as a homogeneous unit: You are not to think you’re anyone special, or that you’re better than us.
The ten rules state:
- You’re not to think you are anything special.
- You’re not to think you are as good as we are.
- You’re not to think you are smarter than we are.
- You’re not to imagine yourself better than we are.
- You’re not to think you know more than we do.
- You’re not to think you are more important than we are.
- You’re not to think you are good at anything.
- You’re not to laugh at us.
- You’re not to think anyone cares about you.
- You’re not to think you can teach us anything.
The Janters who transgress this unwritten “law” are regarded with suspicion and some hostility, as it goes against the town’s communal desire to preserve harmony, social stability and uniformity.
An eleventh rule recognized in the novel as “the penal code of Jante” is:
- Perhaps you don’t think we know a few things about you?
From the chapter “Maybe you don’t think I know something about you”:
That one sentence (the eleventh rule), which acts as the penal code of Jante, as such was rich in content. It was a charge of all sorts of things, and that it also had to be, because absolutely nothing was allowed. It was also an elaborate indictment, with all kinds of unspecified penalties given to be expected. Furthermore it was useful, depending fully on tone of voice, in financial extortion and enticement into criminal acts, and it could also be the best means of defense.
Sandemose’s novel described working-class life in the fictional town of Jante. He wrote in 1955, a bit mischievously, that “Many people have recognized [in Jante] their own hometown – this has happened regularly to people from Arendal [Norway], Tromsø [Norway] and Viborg [Denmark]”. Sandemose made no claim to having invented the rules; he simply sought to formulate social norms that had stamped the Danish and Norwegian psyches for centuries.

There really is a “world system of financial control in private hands” that is “able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world.” I call this system the World Trade Federation. It is an ultra-secret group of the most powerful men on the earth. They now control every major international institution, every major multinational and transnational corporation both public and private, every major domestic and international banking institution, every central bank, every nation-state on earth, the natural resources on every continent and the people around the world through complicated inter-locking networks that resemble giant spider webs.

I find that my foe , my persecutors and my tormentors are not the generality of my fellow citizens, the whole of humanity , but a specific section of it which wishes to paint the rest of humanity as the problem. We the Human Race are not the problem. They Are. Who They are and what their political Structures are are quite evident, it is just important not to be taken in by the branded packaging, for our political institutions no longer work as advertised.
This newly acquired road map helped me explain why the internet was so effective at being a sociological /dev/null, a bit bucket where extraneous emotional energy was piped. It wasn’t just an “information superhighway”, naively forwarding bits along without opinions or bias. It was emotional infrastructure encoding its bias into the distribution of the data it carried. If one could control the distribution of information and the shape of that distribution bias, one could steer the emotional perceptions of those who relied on the data which, in turn, allowed vectors to create cultural conflict. Without physical violence as a resolution, the instigated cultural conflict would be eternal. I had started to develop a glimpse of what that 2005 internet would become and how it would alter human destiny. That’s when I started “The Empath”
MN: But they never get out of business. And the amazing thing is the average abundance of co-operators in this pattern is very close to 12log 2-8.
David: What does that mean?
Ard: It’s close to constant.
MN: It converges to a constant which is approximately 31%, and this is a mathematical curiosity.
Ard: Natural selection would say the co-operators would get wiped out, because they are paying a cost to help their competitors. And yet it’s not happening. So why?
MN: The reason why it’s not happening is because the co-operators form clusters and in those clusters of co-operators, they actually get a high payoff. They have a high fitness.
David: So they do better?
As is often the case, the real, physical world is not obligated to comply with data modeling that allows one to tweak input for the desired result; same is true for cheerleading practices. So it is with 15,000 foot laterals. West Texas contains leased minerals in thousands of tracts, sections and blocks of land; an operator can’t simply go drill a 15,000 foot lateral where it wants to, into or across minerals it does not own or have leased, no more than one can turn cattle loose to graze across the fence where the grass is greener. Its not “open range,” so to speak. If an operator needs another section of land stacked on top of the two sections it already has to drill a longer lateral, it can’t just go to Ebay and lease it from Rancher Roy, trust me. Pretty much every square foot of minerals in the Permian Basin core areas is leased and/or held by production.
A Deliberate & Systematical Plan of Slavery
“Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematical plan of reducing us to slavery.”
The purpose of this volume is to present an overview of the world management system currently in place and the global community that is emerging along with its future goals and plans in order to stimulate debate concerning its development and implementation. It contains a series of essays and interviews written and conducted over a period of eighteen years.
In order to gain a clearer picture of the emerging global community, we will need to traverse the subjects of international finance, international trade, international relations, international organizations, nation-state governance, central banking policies, international educational policies, the world of the large tax-exempt foundations, politics, economics, science, philosophy, social engineering and much more. It is an exciting and highly rewarding adventure, however, the reader may encounter information which will challenge his former worldviews.
“Next plung’d a feeble, but a desp’rate pack,
With each a sickly brother at his back:
Sons of a Day! just buoyant on the flood,
Then number’d with the puppies in the mud.
Ask ye their names? I could as soon disclose
The names of these blind puppies as of those.”

Batman. ´´General, the king is very grateful for our campaign abroad this past year, a medal of solid gold encrusted with valuable jewels and many tokens in the prize. Enough to buy all the bread in all the bakeries in the kingdom.”
General. ” Yes the King is pleased his campaigns re furnish the treasury, to repay the usurers his international debts and interest.”
As an act of revenge, Zeus hid fire from humankind, leaving them cold and shivering at night. Prometheus, however, out of pity stole it for them shortly after, incurring the further wrath of Zeus. Prometheus’s punishment was to be chained to a rock and have an eagle (or a vulture by some variants) pick out his liver every day for eons, until Heracles slew the eagle, releasing Prometheus from his affliction. The Theogony text is ambiguous about whether Prometheus was freed or remained chained to the rock, but lines 615-616 are usually interpreted as indicating that he remained bound.
The authors are broadly convincing. They distinguish the oil era as one separated between “free flow” and “limited low.” During the period of free-flow, the oil majors literally owned the subsoil of Middle East countries. They profited with prices “being relatively low and stable.” The situation shifted sharply in the 1970s. Nations nationalized their own raw resources. The companies often became “service providers.” As a result, they lost direct control over prices. The consequence was a new limited-flow system, with prices politicized. OPEC quotas, with plenty of pushing and pulling at the hands of Western governments, made sure supplies were set only to what the “market” could bear. The distinction between direct control through property rights and indirect management through diplomacy is incredibly important.
But it is important to keep in mind that their notion of “free flow” refers to who, exactly, controlled the rate at which oil flowed, as well as the positive correlation between volume and profits. This periodization does not mean that production was not sabotaged. Nor do they mean that countries and corporations did not deliberately constrain supply during the earlier period. It simply means that the mechanisms of that constraint differed from those used after 1973. During that earlier era, for example, the majors allowed Iranian production to increase, but at a very precise rate related to what analysts thought would coincide with global demand. Meanwhile, Iraqi production endured constant sabotage. As leading petroleum economist John Blair noted in his classic study of the oil business, “From almost the beginning of its operations,” the Iraqi Petroleum Co. “not only suppressed production in Iraq…but went to considerable lengths to conceal that fact from the Iraqi government.”
Christ answered the Herodians according to their condition. “Show me the tribute-money,” said he; – and one took a penny out of his pocket; – If you use money which has the image of Caesar on it, and which he has made current and valuable, that is, if you are men of the State, and gladly enjoy the advantages of Caesar’s government, then pay him back some of his own when he demands it; “Render therefore to Caesar that which is Caesar’s and to God those things which are God’s” – leaving them no wiser than before as to which was which; for they did not wish to know.
There is a real World War going on. It has nothing to do with the common applied terms of war as we have been conditioned to know of bombs, bullets, and death there from. It is a war of population control and management.
What are the objectives of this war of the controllers? Final Jeopardy Question!! Tic, tic, tic. Final answer: Population management and control where the end result has an ongoing conversion of wealth in place whereby the population is managed as a “Productivity Unit,” with most of that productivity going into the hands of the controllers. Nothing new here, that game-plan has been in effect from before the times of the Egyptian Pharaohs.
To the Cabal it does not really matter if the conversion takes place during peaceful times, brutality by conventional war, or under democracy, communism, fascism, or forced or voluntary servitude. All that matters is that the conversion takes place.
When you look at world events, to understand what is going on all you have to do is ask yourself; Who benefits (profits)? Walter Burien
When this push comes to shove play goes into effect, here is the silver bullet as they call it to cancel out the Cabals final step for world wealth conversion into their hands;
Let the dollar be backed by a commodity index which includes; grains, metals, produce; domestic stock; energy; etc. Here it will not be the golden rule but the productivity value of the countries commodity production.
Doing this will really put a hiccup (to say the least) in the Cabal’s plan for final conversion through their hoarding of gold since 1963. (The Cabal won’t get killed, they just won’t make a killing) It will also be a just economic environment world wide being that each country’s currency will now maintain or grow in its value based on that country’s own productivity in physical resources not “exclusively” on who owns the gold.
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of what is said in the paragraph above. It is the difference between primary failure of the Cabal’s last step and significant success accomplished for the people. Walter Burien
PS: Back to who Benefits? It was not a few countries from the Middle East or the people therein who have had their resources plundered, a million or so of their people killed, who are now facing totalitarian rule by an externally placed and managed puppet regime.
Look closely at reality and not well managed marketed hype designed with specific objectives harmonized with well orchestrated and promoted events designed to accomplish the Cabal’s master plan.
If We The People do not get a grip, and then regain control, we will all suffer dire consequences for not having done so. One voice can turn into a million and a million can change the World. Focus on the basics and stop scattering like minnows every time the Cabal throws a rock in the pond. Catch the rock before it hits the water and throw it back, or even better yet, take the rock out of their hand in the first place.

A central lack of fibre. Either moral or physical around which myths of debt are spun. As spiders spin webs and weavers warp clothe. Spartan Ephors of prudence pass judgement on all and stand above and astride the law. Dispensing injustice and taking clothes off the backs of The freezing and food out of the mouths of the hungry. Passing judgement on those who perform real work, asking always for more and demanding to pay less.
So draw the bow of truth with intentness in the eye,
Seek out the irreducible posits, the epistemological gods of homer. If there be one free miracle let the ephors explain the rest. What is this power of usury? Where did this power come from ? Who is it exercised for and to whom do you ephors of usury answer to ? And now let me ask. How do we take this power away? Only then we shall see good faith and brotherhood restored to the commons.

There was confusion and debate over the line “Are we human, or are we dancer?” in the song’s chorus due to its grammar. Debate raged across the internet over whether the lyric said “dancer”, “dancers” or “denser”, a misunderstanding which elicited conflicting interpretations of the song’s meaning. On the band’s official website, the biography section states that Flowers is singing “Are we human, or are we dancer?” and also says that the lyric was inspired by a disparaging comment made by Hunter S. Thompson, who stated that America was “raising a generation of dancers, afraid to take one step out of line”. From an interview:
