August 21, 2012
This is the era of multiple, prolonged, and deep crises. They touch on every facet of modern life: the political, economic, social, spiritual, scientific, cosmic, and personal.
The media construction of these modern crises merely touches the surface. Also, fake crises are invented by the oligarchical system that is ruling the planet to take the place of real crises in the public consciousness.
This is done in order to distract the people from noticing the real structural crises and doing something to address their roots, which means overthrowing the oligarchical system.
Below, I’ve listed what I think are ten of the most profound crises, with brief descriptions of each of them.
1. A Crisis of Democracy and Western Liberalism
The global shadow banking cabal is behind the creation of a global governance system, whose legitimacy is based not on the will of the people but on sheer government force and totalitarian brainwashing.
This fact is destroying the myths of democracy, self-government, and Western liberalism. The rise of a new style of Western fascism is now a reality, and at its heart is the non-Western belief that individual rights do not matter.
2. A Crisis of Communication Between Civilizations
“Men do not long continue to think what they have forgotten how to say.” — C.S. Lewis, from his essay, “The Death of Words.”
The reduction of public discourse to simplistic and meaningless phrases, empty narratives, and repetitive talking points encourages public ignorance and empowers the forces of violence at the top and at the bottom.
On the international level, we have witnessed the abandonment of civil dialogue, honest exchange of views, and cross-cultural understanding since the false flag September 11 events. U.S., Israeli, and Iranian officials only trade threats and insults with each other, never words of praise. Consequently, a tragic rift has been created between the West and the East, and Israel, who is in the middle of this ancient divide, is leading the West directly into this rift and to the folly of war.
The resolution to this crisis can be achieved by walking on the path of dialogue and diplomacy. But the path of peace is presently being suppressed and ridiculed by the warmongering Western media as wide-eyed pacifism and isolationism.

3. A Crisis of U.S. Dollar Hegemony
The era of the dominance of the U.S. dollar is ending. Oil and drugs fueled and sustained the rise of the Almighty Dollar, and wars and economic realities are bringing it down.
This change is creating a crisis in the world order. A global financial restructuring is needed. Large nations like Russia and China as well as developing nations like South Africa want to trade and produce within a new and fairer global monetary system. The roots of this new economic system have already been set into place, bi-nationally, regionally, and globally. Its takeover is inevitable.
The current war path that American leaders are on in the Middle East to ensure the Dollar’s global hegemony is unsustainable, undesirable, and unwise. The U.S. is isolating itself into a corner by demolishing national borders, corrupting international laws, and invading sovereign countries based on false pretexts.
4. A Crisis of A Lack of Private And Personal Boundaries
Boundaries between the public and the private worlds have been torn down completely in Western societies.
The invasion by the leviathan state into the private space of individuals is relentless. The dominance of surveillance technologies in our daily lives, the rise of Facebook, and social media, and the almost unstoppable police state has destroyed the idea of a “private life.” Many people do not lead private lives anymore. Everything is made public, while dissent against the government is reduced to nothingness. People’s own self-identities are connected to the narratives and myths of the totalitarian state. This is a tragic mistake.
If an individual’s identity does not exist apart from the state’s identity and the state’s narratives then he is nothing but an animal. In such a intellectually deprived and unconscious state, the question of values, ethics, and personal principles is suppressed because this burden is put on the ‘State.’
5. A Crisis of Meaning: Historical Revisionism, A False Collective Memory, And A War on Truth
The global rethinking of the September 11 events is only the first step in a much broader process whose end is the total rethinking of the course of modern history, especially American political history. I’ve written about this subject before, though incoherently, in these two articles: “From The Fed To JFK To 9/11: A Hidden History of High Treason in America,” and “The Age of Revelations: JFK, 9/11, UFOs, And Beyond.”
Historical revisionism in America and the West is a fluid and dynamic process. The push back against the totalitarian war on American memory and global collective memory can already be seen in the rising influence of 9/11 conspiracy theories. The 9/11 lie represents an unprecedented war on truth on a global scale. The discovery of this grand lie results in a loss of meaning in the individual’s psyche, and this crisis must be dealt with gracefully and creatively, both by the individual and the community around him.
6. A Cosmic Crisis
“We don’t know where we are. We do not have a home in the cosmos. There is a very profound sense of alienation. And that is what has brought into the English language the word alien, in the new sense. Not only has it brought psychological alienation, which is one of the maladies of the modern world, from which traditional societies suffered much less, much less… We are very lonely here, we are alienated in this cosmos.” — Seyyed Hossein Nasr, from a 2003 lecture at Harvard Divinity School called, “In the Beginning Was Consciousness.”
I can’t add anything to this quote because I have not yet fully thought about the breadth and depth of this crisis. It is above my current level of understanding.
7. A Spiritual Crisis
“First of all, let us agree ladies and gentlemen, that we are in the midst of a spiritual crisis.” — Professor Harry Oldmeadow, from a 2006 lecture at the University of Alberta called, “Tradition Betrayed; The False Prophets of Modernism.”
“There is a disaster, however, which has already been under way for quite some time. I am referring to the calamity of a despiritualized and irreligious humanistic consciousness.” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn, from his famous 1978 Harvard address called “A World Split Apart.”
I will not write at length here, but instead refer you to this article, “Western Man In Crisis: Technology, Terror, And The Journey of The Soul.”
8. A Moral Crisis
The failure to jail and punish psychopathic banksters who have committed unthinkable frauds against the American people and numerous countries is a failure of moral leadership. The U.S. government and other Western governments are destroying the fabric of civilized society by treating corrupt members of the establishment and the rest of society differently. Gerald Celente says, “All of society is rotting out.”
9. An Accountability Crisis That Is Causing A Crisis of Public Confidence In Institutions.
The Occupy Wall Street movement, in a new and reformulated form, will bring the crisis of public confidence in government and institutions to the center stage. The global 9/11 truth and justice movement has already taken the leap into this territory. For more, read, “The Crisis of Public Confidence In National Governments Is Leading To Global Political Chaos.”
10. A Psychological Crisis And Mental Health Crisis.
“We are a death-fearing, death-denying, death-escaping culture. And Tolkien nails it by giving the Ring the power of deathlessness.” — Professor Ralph Wood, from his lecture given on February 22, 2011, called, “On Tolkien—The Lord of the Rings—A Book for our Time of Terror.”
“Human nature has its limits; it can bear joy, suffering and pain to a certain degree, but it collapses as soon as that degree is exceeded. The question, therefore, is not whether someone is weak or strong, but what degree of suffering he can actually endure, be it moral or physical.” — Goethe, from “The Sorrows of Young Werther.”
The mental health of Western society, especially America, is verging on the catastrophic. People are on edge, and our emotionless political leaders are not saying anything to reassure us that they know what they’re doing. An economic collapse will bring out into the open these mental health problems, which at present remain buried in the press and the public consciousness.
The website ‘The American Dream’ frequently writes about this subject. Read a recent article that was published there called, “Completely Surrounded By Psychopaths And Sociopaths As We Approach The Edge Of Societal Collapse.” Also, check out my article, “All Psychosis On The Western Front: The Psychological Ramifications of The 9/11 Myth.”
