If you look around the world right now objectively, you may see many difficult issues: wars in the Middle East, economic disparity, terrorism, deforestation, tar sands, and climate change. Each of these very real issues are connected by many common aspects related to our current way of living, which is changeable. There are obvious issues such as humanities need to become self aware, and to move away from apathy into responsiblity. There are innate aspects of the human condition as a whole which must be addressed, as well as destructive habits we must resolve. Our reliance on oil as an energy resource for the past century is one of the roots at the heart of many of the global political, economic, social and environmental threats we face.
THE MONEY AND OIL CONNECTION
Oil is traded in US dollars, this means the fate of the US centralized Federal Reserve note relies on the oil market. In order to understand the relevance of that, we need to break down our money system. The Federal Reserve Act was passed in the United States 1913 under highly auspicious circumstances. This is a privately owned money lender, a centralized bank, which prints paper notes recognized to us as money. The centralized banking system has loaned money for the past two centuries to very influential countries and this has shaped our current paradigm in most every aspect that matters. This money is loaned at interest, and has indebted every single US citizen (and many other countries using centralized banking systems) to this private elite group of bankers. Controlling the finances of a nation allow for virtual control of the country itself.
The centralized banking system has complete impunity to national law and does not answer to the government which it lends to. This banking system, began over 200 years ago under the Rothschild family, which made its fortune through funding both sides of a war. Every single major war, since the Napoleonic wars in 1812, have been manufactured and antagonized because it was so profitable by these financial terrorists. The countries are left inextricably indebted to these bankers which has created a perpetual feedback loop, as more wars are waged for more money, and more money is spent with more war. To save the integrity of the US dollar, the US government has hedged its bets in the oil industry to capitalize on oil trade in USD. If oil does well, the US dollar does well. This is the reason we went to war in the Middle East.
Does a war on terror create more terror?
THE WAR AND OIL CONNECTION
Wars have been profitable to the unscrupulous owners of arms dealers, aircraft manufacturers, weapons developers, among many other industries which produce military equipment. Another profit mongering business has been defined through the provisions of the ongoing war in the Middle East, which is of course again, the oil industry. The Middle East is rich in oil, and the corporate financiers the US government is now in a dangerous conflict of interest scenario with, have sought to monopolize the energy (oil) industry of the world. Through the US bloodthirsty hunt for energy independence, many millions of people have lost their lives, families, and homes in a brutal fashion as we waged a war to gain control of these oil rich lands.
This is not the objective we have been propagated with through the mainstream media, it is however sadly, the true objective of these wars on “terrorism”. We have been used and deceived, our discriminations and lack of understanding has been capitalized on for profit for those in power.
Fracking (which rips apart the earth for oil) was patented by Dick Cheney’s Halliburton during the Iraq War, and his company became exempt from the clean water and air act, while making 39,500,000,000 US taxpayer funded dollars on this dirty business. Fracking is the dirty and destructive industry of tearing open the earth to extract oil in the crudest form possible, tar sands. People were dying in the Iraq war, in the hundred thousands, and this devastation continues to this day, while the oil company of the Secretary of Defense of the United States made billions.
Why does the US continue to go to “war” in the Middle East? Oil resources, control, and profit.
Terrorist threats are manufactured as false flag events to justify to the public our continued military presence in the Middle East. This threat has been a massive propaganda initiative in which the corporate controlled media used fear tactics to create an unquestioning pubic. This has simultaneously bolstered a more sinister agenda which has stripped what was once a democracy, of all inalienable rights in the name of “security.” This has put us all, every one of us, as well as our children, and their children, in a very dangerous and conspicuous circumstance which must be amended. The first step is helping the public recognize the truth, and countering the massive propaganda which has been all too effective.
PROOF OF MANIPULATED MEDIA, CNN/ BBC HAS LIED TO THE WORLD
People are dying in the hundreds of thousands, people whose lives are sacred, every one of whom has a purpose on this earth which is stolen every time we believe the racist lies on the television, every time we ignore and neglect the very real truth, every time we pump gas, use a plastic fork, or fill a plastic shopping bag. We have to open our heart, activate our own minds, and care again about the people and earth around us.
We are facing a global threat which must be resolved nearly immediately in order to have any chance at survival for the majority of the people and species which claim the earth as their home, we have to collectively look at climate change. The climate change we are facing is directly connected to the oil industry which has unleashed more carbon dioxide than our planet can recycle back into oxygen. That is the heart of the issue. Plants, trees, and rainforest like the Amazon take our CO2 and transform it into the oxygen we breathe. Without these once abundant and now dwindling ecosystems, we do not have replenishment for our oxygen. Bottom line, if we do not save the environment, than we do not save ourselves, our children, or our children’s children.
These precious and ineffably valuable forests, and specifically the Amazon rainforest which is the lungs of our planet, are being torn down at an unimaginable rate. Over 100,000 acres are being destroyed a day! (http://www.rainforestmaker.org/) They are being torn down to make way for cattle ranching to produce cheap beef for America, Russia and China (as a side note, the grain fed to these cattle could provide food for eight times the people as the beef itself). They are being torn down for logging to provide cheap wood for furniture, for agriculture companies like Monsanto, for mining which creates vast amounts of pollution, and for oil companies which have bulldozed over even the most sacred of what should have been world heritage sites like the temples and pyramids of the Olmec civilization, one of the oldest civilizations in South America.
At the heart of this terrible and nearly irreversible destruction, as the oil companies proceed with an insatiable thirst for oil, through fracking and tar sands, is an irresponsible and shortsighted agenda, which is not considering the pollution that is a casualty of these crude methods of extrusion.
“During the tar sands oil extraction process, vast amounts of heat, water and chemicals are needed to separate the tarry substance (known as bitumen) from sand, silt, and clay and to flow up the pipeline. The water used in the process comes from rivers and underground aquifers. It takes three barrels of water to extract each single barrel of oil. Ninety-five percent of the water used to extract the oil, which is about 2.4 million barrels per day, is so polluted that the water must be stored in large human-made pools, known as tailing ponds. As the heavy bitumen sinks to the bottom of these ponds, the toxic sludge, full of harmful substances like cyanide and ammonia, works its way into neighboring clean water supplies.”
Tar Sand extrusion defaces the landscape of many sacred native lands which are not simply there as means of utility, like a grocery store where people can just come and take what they need when they need it. These lands exist for their own purpose and that is not to serve the shortsighted goals of one selfish species. These lands nourish all life; the grass, the trees, the birds, the fish, the elk and the beaver. People have lived here for generations, living in balance without harm to their environment. We may not see the value in how very deeply meaningful that is because we have all but suffocated our connection to that great spirit of the earth. Just because we do not appreciate that connection does not mean that the bond does not exist, or remove from it any of the profound resonance. These lands are sacred, whether or not we see that. They are sacred spiritually, energetically and practically. The trees of these lands produce our oxygen, the mountains of these lands purifies our water, these places are hubs of the continuation of all life on this planet, including our own.
The truth about Tar Sands
THE OIL AND SOCIAL CONNECTION
This war waged on humanity and the earth with oil and money at the rotted root has not only affected the physical aspects of our lives; people’s livelihoods destroyed, people’s families taken, people’s villages torn apart. At the behest of the oil industries ruthless needs a much more sinister turn has been manifested, it has divided us from one another. It has divided the family of humanity across the world. We have allowed ourselves to be turned, much like the Germans were brainwashed with during WWII, that certain people are bad, that those people are our problem. This poisoning of our very consciousness has turned religion against religion, race against race, and brother against sister. We are one human family, and we are each a part of the chapter which we are writing right now in history.
I will not be remembered, nor will you, our names will be lost through the epochs of time. What will be remembered is our collective movements, our causes which we fought for; as cowardly and corrupted fighting for an illusion of peace through acts of war, or a noble conviction for truth and love to be those who healed the times of darkness and brought it back into the light.
The decisions which affect us all, should not be made by a powerful few, they should be made collectively, openly and responsibly. We can make these changes, no matter how large they appear, we each have a vote, a voice, and a part we play in either perpetuating this broken paradigm, or in correcting the problem from the faltering foundation upward. We must begin to look to alternative energy sources. (Top renewable energy sources 2013 https://www.asme.org/engineering-topics/articles/renewable-energy/renewable-energy-top-5-trends-watch-2013)
There are many alternative ways of living beyond the consumer driven means to an ends. Think about what is truly necessary in life; food, water, shelter, each of these facets of life are threatened by our current route. We can change the momentum and direction by removing our piece from this destructive war, oil and money driven machine. The power has always been with the people, with you, with your life and how you live it, with you and the truth you choose to believe, with you and your responsible balance. As we each recognize our individual contribution ripples outward, we can effect a massive shift in both consciousness and matter. You have the power that matters.
We need to become balanced with our earth and each other in almost every aspect in our lifestyles; plastic is oil, this means containers, most everything we buy, and a large percentage of our waste (food is the top wasted commodity in the US) is directly connected to this unsustainable and viscious industry. We need to take full responsibility no matter how convenient and become conscious that every action has a reaction, everything we consume and dispose of, has a consequence. We do not need to change the world, we need to change our piece within it, then it will change on its own, it will have to.
