History is a Rearview Mirror

Lonely 1

History is a rearview mirror which should bear the inscription “Caution: The world may appear different than it is.” In fact, history is just another propaganda tool of the Controllers. The history of the world is a distilled, fabricated, massaged and distorted presentation of facts, lies, and opinions. It may take the form of a high school or college text,  a television series, or of a written, spoken or video news analysis. The official history is sold every minute of every day to the sleepy-eyed, over-worked populace.

“Black and white” presentations of the “facts” surrounding wars, assassinations, economic depressions, plagues, natural disasters, governments, religions, leaders, and losers tell simple stories. The bad guys are identified and hung out to dry; the good guys canonized. An event happened, a reaction followed, etc.

But you might want to test the development of the official history.  Try this little exercise. Take stock of the last decade or two. Remember the historical events as they happened. Double check and supplement your memory with newspapers, videos, and other immediate contemporary accounts of events as they happened. Skip the news analysis articles that fill news magazines like Time. These articles are the first stage of the history packaging process. Imagine sheep herded into pens by dogs. That is their purpose. The Controllers want to lead you down the official path of “truth.”

You might also want to follow the propaganda process from news bulletins to headlines, to articles, to weekly summations, to annual reviews, to cinematic dramatizations, to Ken Burns-type television presentations, to fiction and non-fictional books by well-known authors and finally to the very boring and dogmatic writings presented in official history texts.

Pick a historical event which seems important to you, one that should appear in a history book, like 911, the Iraq invasion, or the financial crisis of 2007-2008. Then grab a history text used to teach high school students today.

Make an analysis of the summation and causation of events that happened in your lifetime. See if you agree with history’s version. Can you see the filtering, editorializing, and the congealing of facts to fit the official story? This little exercise may make you doubt the historical fairy tales describing all those other historical events which happened before you were born.

Saving JFK: Stopping the Chicago Attempt

Someone knew.

From Zak Newman's June 28, 2028 log in the time travel novel Saving JFK

“Dr. Currant spent the first hour explaining the some of the basics of life in the early 1960s. He has purchased quite a few rare gold and silver coins as well as about ten pounds of common gold coins dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. Since he is a registered numismatist, he is allowed to make such a transaction without causing a fuss with MOM. These, he will exchange for dollars once we arrive. We’re familiar with the idea of dollars. They’re similar in concept to the exos that we use today, except they are paper, not electronic. But understanding the smaller coins is a challenge. The pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and half-dollars are what Dr. Currant calls “pocket change.” For my money, carrying these coins around will only create holes in my pocket. I actually like our decimal system of today, although very few transactions involve transferring a part of an exo. A single exo doesn’t buy much and part of an exo buys even less. But A.C. assures us that these nickels and dimes will, in themselves, have some pretty hefty purchasing power in 1963. He’s also bringing some cut diamonds. These, of course, are synthetic. Today, diamonds are just another commodity, like wheat or oil, because of the low cost of creating them. According to Dr. Currant, experts today can’t tell the difference between the real and the synthetic. The synthetic stones are cheap now, but in 1963 diamonds were very valuable and only available in their natural state. They’re small, easy-to-carry, concentrated wealth and they’ll be no problem to sell to the right buyer, says Dr. Currant.”

The Time Travel Twins have time-traveled to the 1960s to save John Kennedy.

Predicting the Future

War-or-Peace

In March 1934 Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker, race car driver, future president of Eastern Airlines, World War I flying ace and Medal of Honor recipient, wrote an article for Foreign Service magazine entitled “War or Peace”. The image above is from that article. The caption reads: “vultures of destruction…controlled by robots…operated by radio and television.” The cartoon predicts and depicts today’s military drone operations. Rickenbacker’s pre-World War II anti-war article, written by a man who had experienced modern war first-hand, is deadly accurate.

“The next war…will be a world war. But it will be unlike any other war that we know of. There will be no noncombatants. The battle front, roughly, will be the face of the earth. The roof of one’s own house, one’s own back yard, each will be part of the battle front. The combatants will be all living things.”

In some detail, he describes the horrors of the coming war. “These vultures of destruction, many—probably most of them—controlled by robots, will fly far behind the lines of advancing men, there to drop bombs weighing tons, the explosion of which will shake the average city as would an earthquake, causing buildings far from the scene of the explosion to tremble, crack, then crumble to the ground, crushing human souls to death, burying thousands there alive.”

But, after accurately predicting all the horrors of the next war, especially today’s euphemistically called “collateral damage”, he goes on to say that he does not believe there will be another war stating that “in the future if there is a war, no one can win but death.”

Capt. Rickenbacker was a great prognosticator of the future of military technology but a poor judge of the sensibility of humanity and the strange affection our political leaders have for creating unending war.

What’s Behind the Door?

opening-door

Every hour, day, week, month, and year that we experience and every place we visit, opens the door to the unknown…to the future. The future is an assumption based on our mortality. The experience of the future is a probability based on the past. We are taking a chance when we open any door to any place or time. We never really know what lays ahead.

The present, if narrowly defined, is a fleeting experience which cannot be defined, explained, or contemplated.

The past offers some hope for certainty. But the truth of the past depends solely on the agenda of the storyteller and his access to factual information. Therefore, any retelling of past events, is only an approximation, an interpretation, a summation, or categorization. It is not the truth.  The door to historical “truth” swings on the squeaky hinges of storyteller bias and the quality of the event documentation.

This year, doors opening across the world may present a surprising and shocking future not anticipated based on the purported events of the past. Strap it down and cinch it up!
