Recap of February 23rd Westside 9-12 meeting

    Our last meeting was somewhat unusual. We took a look at some strange themes that have been popping up in popular culture. Several years ago I stumbled across the vigilant citizen website. I have been reading it ever since. At first glance it seems like some paranoid conspiracy website but on close examination you will find that it is merely documenting images and ideas presented in our mainstream culture. I have to warn you that some of the images on the site are disturbing but they are the exact same images you will find in fashion and entertainment magazines at the local newsstand or viewed on television or in the local cinema. Most of the images would go unnoticed by the general public but the people creating them place a high value on the images being presented. I will leave it up to you to decide the motives behind this imagery. It could be just a race to the bottom in order to sell more CDs or the latest fashion designs. Let’s face it, it takes a lot more to shock someone then it did even ten years ago. Then again it could be something else. Recurring themes of occult and ancient Egyptian symbolism as well as police state imagery are appearing in numerous places. Masonic imagery is also prevalent. I am not implying that “the Masons are evil and are taking over the world” or that any Masonic organization is even involved but the imagery is Masonic. I have absolutely no idea why this imagery is being used or by whom. I only know that this is out there and whomever is doing this is going through a lot of trouble to create it. I don’t think that anyone would argue that a lot of the music & films created today are seriously depraved but is there more to it than what we see at face value? Take a look at the site and come to your own conclusions.

    Here are several of the more intriguing pages on the site:

    In the Sinister Sites section there are several buildings with murals that are very bizarre. It is hard to believe that these images are presented as public art. There is the lobby of the Bank of America Corporate Center in Charlotte, NC. a well as the Denver International Airport. There is also the Georgia Guidestones also known as the American Stonehenge. After reading about these places you will wonder if this is a hoax but these are all places you can travel to and see for yourself.

    Here is an article found on the site that sums up the dark side to popular culture. Pay particular attention the video of the Britney Spears interview embedded in the article. It is very chilling and may give credence to some of the more outlandish claims on the site. There is also this fascinating article on the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

    So why am I bothering with this? What does it have to do with the upcoming election or the national debt? Why am I risking any credibility I may have with you by pointing out these bizarre things? It is my belief that we cannot fix this country or the world in general until we fix ourselves first.  We basically get the government we deserve and presently as a nation we are debased beyond imagination. We need to be aware of what is going on so we can work to change our culture and our selves. This is the only way we will even begin to fix our government. Even if you dismiss any claims of hidden occult messages in our popular culture you would have to admit that just on face value it is sick and at the very least should not be marketed to pre-teen children. The sad fact is that our children are being bombarded with messages that are evil and collectively we are not doing anything to stop it. Even though 90% of rational adults would say that this is not healthy, it continues. I believe we need to decide where we stand in this world.

Diane spoke about several different preparedness items. She recommended the new Doomsday Preppers show on the National Geographic channel. She also talked about a novel she recently read that helped her visualize what a post EMP world might be like. The book is called One Second After. She said it helped her understand what would be needed if a disaster of that magnitude would happen. Another good novel that deals with the collapse of society is Patriots.

She also mentioned an idea of creating packets of info that could be used to quickly bring an interested person up to speed. It would include a shortened version (30 minutes) of the documentary The Child as well as a full length version of the movie Agenda and the Agenda 21 handout that we have shared with the group in the past. Diane is estimating that all of this would only cost roughly $15. This would be a good way to help people understand what is happening. You could host viewing parties in order to show this to as many people as possible. We will provide more info in the near future.

We have three upcoming meetings:
Thursday March 15th @ Perkins Restaurant on Westbourne Rd. – This is our regular monthly meeting. Dinner at 6 PM. The meeting starts at 7 PM.
Thursday March 29th @ the Green Township Library – a Preparation presentation presented by John Vota of the Safe & Ready Life store in Milford.  The meeting starts at 7 PM.

Saturday April 28th @ the Green Township Library – a viewing of the documentary Agenda from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM and a discussion of the film afterward.
