Our Future Has Been Commandeered


We should be living in the time of humanity’s greatest flower. But we’re not. Instead, we’re stuck in a condition of permanent war, rising xenophobia, endless fear, perpetual distraction, and suffocating conformity. Worse, we’re living inside of a surveillance state that is morphing into something truly, truly evil.

I’m here to tell you that nearly all of this is artificial. We have more than enough technology to be living among the stars, to fill every hungry mouth on the planet, and to meet nearly every human need.

We already know how to do all those things… and this fact is demonstrably true.

And yet we sit immersed in fear, confusion, privation, and even hate. And why? Mainly because the elites of our civilization have demanded that we sacrifice our wills to theirs, and because most of us have silently complied.

We have space-age knowledge, yet we remain firmly under the domination of bronze-age rulership. And since these rulers would be wiped away by the spread of space-age technologies, they have carefully contained them.

“Thou Mayest Not Go There”

As I write this, we are at the end of the year 2015. Back in 1968 – almost two generations ago – men traveled to the moon. The next year, they landed there. This was well before microwaves, cell phones, and the Internet. It was even before personal calculators. But right there, space travel was stopped in its tracks. In fact, it was first pulled back and then stopped. No human has left Earth’s gravity since 1972.

Have we more technology than we did in 1968 – 47 years ago – or have we less?

Obviously we have far more and far better, but space technology has been commandeered and space has been locked shut. Our future has simply been cut off. Does any reasonable person believe that it would be harder to go to space now than it was before Kevlar and fiber optics and computers that didn’t fill an entire room?

And let’s be honest about this: That future was eliminated by the lords of our world because it would ruin their game. Letting the cows out of the barn would severely undercut their interests.

Many of you should be reading my posts as you sail among the stars, or at least among planets, moons, and asteroid belts. We have the technology… and we’ve have had it since the late 1960s. That’s not even debatable.

Requiem for the Internet

Before the Internet, nearly all information was forced to move through well controlled conduits. Exceptions to that rule were mainly print newsletters. But then came the Internet, which allowed anyone to speak to everyone; it allowed information to move from individual to individual with no gatekeeper. That was a very large and very significant change.

To be honest about it, we got the Internet mainly because the elites screwed up. They could have bottled it up, but they simply failed. (They are not smarter than we are.) Sure, other people would have written an Internet-type of communications protocol soon enough, but that kind of slow rollout would have given the bosses time to limit the technology and keep some bottlenecks in place.

Now, after a couple of decades, the Internet has been substantially retaken by the elites. Already, nearly everything is being funneled into Google and Facebook, both of whom have whored themselves out to the rulers. (See this, for example.) It will probably be a matter of a few years until unapproved content starts to be pushed out. Matt Drudge, for example, claimed recently that a Supreme Court justice told him so personally.

Putting information back into controlled channels is massively in the interest of the rulers, and there is no one to oppose them. Their populations are among the most compliant in all of human history.

On top of that, the Internet is already a surveillance system, with the aforesaid Google and Facebook being major components of it. Since Snowden, that’s not debatable either.

Worse, that surveillance system (that is, the Internet) is quickly being turned into the most effective manipulation system in all of human history. In other words, the Internet has been more than commandeered; it has been weaponized and turned against its users.

I could go on, but I won’t: More facts won’t change more minds. Opposition to these truths is psychological, not intellectual.

It’s All About Will

We can have our future back, but only if we stop laying our minds and wills at the feet of rulers… rulers whom most of us acknowledge to be liars and thieves, by the way.

So long as we reflexively obey the people who stole our future, they will never, ever give it back. And why should they? That future isn’t in their interests, and so long as everyone obeys them, why should they change?

In the end, it comes down to the issue of will: Do we believe that we have a right to live and act according to our own minds? Or do we simply evade such considerations?

The usual unexamined slogans (“We have to work through our democratic institutions.”) merely lock us into place as will-less cogs in a hierarchy that hasn’t changed in any of our lifetimes. Truthfully, it’s just obscured slavery: “Pay attention to the flashing lights and keep doing as we say.”

There are answers to all our problems, and we are more than capable of reclaiming our future. But that will never happen if we keep surrendering our wills to the same elites who took it from us.

    Paul, we may have the technology, but we don’t have our hands on enough cheap energy for regular Joes and Janes to go cavorting out in space. The escape velocity of earth is about 25,000 miles/hr. Not all that much? But energy goes as the square of velocity, so it takes 173,000 times as much energy to accelerate to 25,000 mi/hr as it does zero to 60. That’s a significant, and expensive, amount of energy. Add the fact that your space ship has to accelerate much of the fuel it eventually burns and energy consumption multiplies many times again. Only the rich can afford space travel with today’s technology. And private companies are springing up as we speak to accommodate those rich people.
    I agree of course that the government today is a terrible burden. It is the most destructive criminal organization in the history of mankind. Certainly humans would be flowering in ways we can only guess at, absent the cold dead hand of government crushing them psychologically, financially, and physically. But space travel normal people can afford is going to take a while yet to achieve, and not because of government.

    1. Hi JdL,
      Your math, at least as I read it, isn’t making sense. Seems like you’re saying this:
      To accelerate my car from 99 to 100 mph takes 10,000 times more gasoline than to accelerate from 0 to 1 mph.

  2. What I find quite ironic is that we have to log in to google or facebook (part of the evil empire) in order to post a comment.
    My few thoughts are that (1) the “technology will save us” meme is just another homo sapiens delusional construct. Technology has certainly done wonderful things, and I don’t dismiss it, and I will be pleasantly surprised if technology does actually contribute to diminished suffering in this world. I hope I am thoughtful enough not to count on it.
    My second thought is that governments eventually collapse. There’s probably a myriad of events that contribute to this eventual collapse, and I tend towards welcoming the collapse, (but I would not speculate on a timeline). But I think the end result will be immense amounts of suffering.

  3. I agree whole heartedly with your article. The amount of new technology that has been suppressed is enormous. If anyone wants to know what’s really going on, behind the government veil, listen to Dr Steven Greer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHxGQjirV-c) Regarding new technology that exists right now, Mr MT Keshe has a Plasma Generator producing electricity along with solutions for transportation, health, clean water, food, remediation of radiation contamination and more (http://keshefoundation.org/) I agree Paul, if the new technology was allowed to be produced and the regulations lifted on natural cures like hemp etc, it could very well be a different world for all us us.

  4. Paul, by your numbers in “The Real Reason We Don’t Yet Live Among the Stars”:
    “one million miles in space is almost trivial. At the speeds used forty years ago, that’s only 38.5 hours of travel.”
    Alright, that’s 25,974 miles/hour.
    The closest star (other than the Sun) is Alpha Centauri at 4.37 light years away. That’s 2.569e+13 or 25,690,000,000,000 miles. That would take 989,065,989 hours or 112,907 years.
    Let’s say that our top speed increased (the reason?). Multiply the top speed by 1000, fine. That’s still 113 years.
    The next star is a bummer at 40% further away. 158 years using technology that we don’t have.
    The numbers for “travel to the stars” are just crushing.
    Comments in your previous article on space also debunked your space dreams with similarly sober math and physics, yet you held on to the belief for this article. Why?
