L-2 The Future: Technology, Theocracy and the Thousand Year Reich

MP3: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 (Approx. 118 minutes)

First, the dis­cus­sion focuses on the con­flict between cor­po­rate prof­its and both sub­stan­tial wages and ben­e­fits and strong envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion pol­icy. This con­flict results in an ele­ment of cog­ni­tive dis­so­nance on the part of most peo­ple (who must work for a liv­ing.) In order to max­i­mize profit, dis­com­fort must be cor­re­spond­ingly max­i­mized as well.

Human behav­ior is dic­tated largely by two prin­ci­ples that psy­chol­o­gists call the plea­sure prin­ci­ple and the real­ity prin­ci­ple. In a nut­shell: peo­ple do what makes them feel good. When they feel bad, they must alter their envi­ron­ment in such a way as to remove the dis­com­fort. They can either change their exter­nal envi­ron­ment or their inter­nal envi­ron­ment. Polit­i­cal action, labor and envi­ron­men­tal orga­niz­ing would cer­tainly bring change that would relieve social and envi­ron­men­tal dis­tress. That is not as prof­itable as hold­ing down wages and prof­its. Prof­its can be max­i­mized if peo­ple can be made to alter their inter­nal envi­ron­ment in such a way as to endure or even enjoy dis­com­fort (what Mr. Emory refers to as learn­ing “to enjoy sit­ting on a tack.”)

There are a vari­ety of ways of get­ting peo­ple to attempt this. If they are ine­bri­ated on drugs or alco­hol, their pain will be atten­u­ated (at least tem­porar­ily) and their will to resist blunted. In this con­text, opium would be “the reli­gion of the peo­ple.” The real thing might be even better.

The analy­sis cen­ters on a soci­ety in which peo­ple would be made into “true believ­ers,” through a com­bi­na­tion of total­i­tar­ian polit­i­cal con­trol and technologically-reinforced fun­da­men­tal­ist reli­gion. Denom­i­na­tional affil­i­a­tion of sub­ject nations and indi­vid­u­als may well remain diverse, but the foun­da­tion and source of polit­i­cal power would be tremen­dously pow­er­ful, tech­no­log­i­cally sophis­ti­cated mil­i­tary weapons of mass destruc­tion. Most impor­tantly, the very exis­tence of these weapons would be unknown to the vast major­ity of peo­ple. An admin­is­tra­tive elite would exer­cise polit­i­cal power. This elite would be reli­gious, polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary in nature — Mr. Emory char­ac­ter­izes them as “priest-spies.” They would have at least lim­ited knowl­edge of the pre­vail­ing mil­i­tary tech­nol­ogy, as well as advanced tac­ti­cal knowl­edge of its application.

Their “parish­ioners,” on the other hand, would see (and would be encour­aged and oblig­ated to see) the dev­as­tat­ing appli­ca­tion of the destruc­tive tech­nol­ogy as “mir­a­cles.” Groups or indi­vid­u­als who devi­ated from the pre­scribed path would be pun­ished with the tech­nol­ogy and this, again, would be seen by a naive pop­u­lace as ret­ri­bu­tion by some super­nat­ural entity. (It should be noted that New Age reli­gions are by no means immune to this kind of exploita­tion and seduc­tion by fas­cist elements.)

Weapons tech­nol­ogy that might be involved would include genetically-engineered micro-organisms (“the plagues of Egypt”), Tesla tech­nol­ogy to cause earth­quakes or alter the weather (“God’s pun­ish­ment on the wicked”), long dis­tance mind-control tech­niques involv­ing elec­tro­mag­netic radi­a­tion (“the Voice of the Lord”). (Note: this lec­ture was given before infor­ma­tion about Project HAARP became pub­lic.) In L-1 evi­dence is pre­sented that so-called “fly­ing saucers” are real and do not come from outer space. They are advanced aero­nau­ti­cal devices, whose devel­op­ment began with pro­to­types flown by the Ger­mans dur­ing the clos­ing stages of World War II. They were fur­ther devel­oped by the West­ern Allies in the years after the war. There is also sub­stan­tial evi­dence of attempts by ele­ments of the intel­li­gence com­mu­nity to cre­ate belief in space aliens. With this in mind, Mr. Emory dis­cusses the pos­si­ble uses of “UFOs” and “aliens” in the fas­cist techno-theocracy described above. (Recorded in Jan­u­ary of 1995 in Santa Monica.)

Discussion

4 comments for “L-2 The Future: Technology, Theocracy and the Thousand Year Reich”

  1. Inter­est­ingly, Nick Red­fern notes in his book “In Pur­suit of the Saucer Spies,” the fact that the ear­li­est alien “con­tactees” — who reported that the extrater­res­tri­als were Nordic look­ing and came in peace — had been asso­ciates of Amer­i­can fas­cist William Dud­ley Pel­ley dur­ing the ‘30s. Mr Red­fern infers noth­ing from this odd fac­toid, but I’d say it points to a pro­pa­ganda cam­paign in the ‘50s to dis­guise the true ori­gin of cer­tain UFOs.

  2. The re-release of this arti­cle is very per­ti­nent at this time. Chan­nel 7 ABC News in South­field, MI just announced a new street-light sys­tem called “Intelli-Lights”, by a local engi­neer and man­u­fac­turer. The street light sys­tem does what street lights are expected to do with a few excep­tions. These lights con­tain pow­er­ful soft­ware that allows the capac­ity to respond to ques­tions by pedes­tri­ans, give warn­ings and alerts via the gov­ern­ment or law enforce­ment, video record with greater pre­ci­sion images within its path. In fact, Detroit and it’s sub­ur­ban areas, have a sin­cere inter­est in improv­ing its over­all image has been adopt­ing sev­eral other high-tech means of help­ing law enforce­ment. It reads good but it truly reduces a law-abiding cit­i­zens pri­vacy.
    Also, I hear time and again, after an earth­quake, Sunami, or any dev­as­tat­ing envi­ron­men­tal dis­as­ter, Chris­tians say­ing the “Lord is try­ing to tell peo­ple some­thing. They’d bet­ter wake up!”

  3. “J K II”:

    There IS NO GOD. I think the crap state of our world is abun­dant evi­dence that there’s obvi­ously no all-powerful, benev­o­lent Super­nat­ural Force.

  4. Newly cre­ated glow­ing bunnies!

    Rest assured, they are ter­res­trial from very earthly technology.
