Thread: Not sure what to think

    That was the gist of the article. The fact that they call them so early and are rarely wrong. That's why I didn't know what to think. On one hand it seems that they already know who won because it was set up. On the other hand, there are people paid to do that and be good at it. One really interesting thing in it was a Tennessee court hearing of a guy who admittedly made a computer program to rig electronic voting machines. He swore under oath that he did it and it would switch votes to make at least a 51%-49% win for whoever you wanted to win. It was an interesting video. Makes you think and question. And when we stop questioning, we are controlled.

    the term AWAKE !! has been attributed to a dozen or more people -mostly tho to gurdjeff -who believed mankind lived in a state of sleep 90% of the time . The Theosophists agreed with this and , during WWII GERMANY AWAKE was hitler's personal slogan . AND , the greatest movie of all time (THEY LIVE ) followed the same thing , albeit you had to wear sunglasses to see the ''real'' world.

    Payton, I've never heard of the movie "They Live". Could you give a quick review of what it is?

    Rowdy Roddy Piper plays and unemployed construction worker who stumbles into an alien take over of the planet . it is campy yet endorsed by boatloads of Conspiracy theorists . W/O the glasses you see the ''normal'' world -put them on and you see subliminal messages everywhere .Of course no take over would ever happen w/o human help and these are the rich and politicians . Once again , the material had to be presented as funny fiction -much like the Illuminatus trilogy .
    In one scene a bunch of peace activists start their own town w/o any use for big Brother . Of course they are squashed instantly . Just as Hoovervilles were .
