Of Cattle and Sheep

Does it require an explanation so long and detailed that nobody will read it?

The US health care system is a time bomb in the first place. It is broken and the fix is not what everyone imagines. If you put it all under charity, it won’t be big enough to do the specialized research to advance medical treatment. If you make the government pay for everything, the government must then set all the prices that they will pay, and folks who don’t like the price won’t cooperate with the government. It would then be like the worst of the old Soviet brand of medical care. On top of that, you will still have crony corruption. If you make medical care profit-based (as we have), you are equally guaranteed corruption because of simple human greed. Running the financing through insurance plans only adds a higher price to the corruption.

That’s because a root error is the American culture, on top of basic fallen human nature. It’s not like this in the rest of the world. That is, the corruption is not at all the same. Part of the problem is our prissy Victorian attitude that says it shouldn’t exist, so we don’t normalize it. We try to pretend it’s not human nature, that there are things we can do to make it go away, that we can write rules to make it impossible. But the rules always fail, either directly or by creating a newer and worse problem. That’s American culture, denying that man is fallen while wallowing in sin. So this thing will eventually blow up and any efforts to clean up the mess of Obamacare may succeed only in kicking the can down the road a while.

This is how our economy will grind down, though it will never completely halt. We still won’t have an apocalypse, but it will be rough. On top of that, we still have the Federal Reserve, a central bank that can and likely will fight Trump for purely partisan reasons. The Federal Reserve is a globalist political agency; everyone knows that. The only way to beat some of the problem is dissolve it altogether. That leaves us with other issues, but we still have this damned awful American political culture to deal with.

It’s this damned pretense; we have a powerful centralizing elite force that publicly denies its own agenda. It denies its elite position. An honest elite would be far more bearable, but this fakery is what kills everything. We have to keep that damned lie — “of the people, by the people, for the people” — going, when it was a dastardly lie the day Lincoln wrote that speech. This is the nature of centralizing oppression.

And it’s present in all kinds of other problems. For example, Microsoft has created a new class of trouble for Windows 10 users. For those who use the Home version (the vast majority of Windows 10 machines) there is the new forced update. That is, no matter what settings you have, when the machine decides to update, you cannot say “wait.” It will spontaneously reboot right in the big middle of whatever you are doing. It won’t matter if you are using your computer for a life-saving medical procedure, either.

I’m waiting to see if they introduce that policy to Win7 and Win8 systems, as they have back-ported other changes that way. There is only the most cynical pretense of caring about the end-users. It’s the forced dependency required by the globalist elite.

This is what has shaped the American culture. Unless and until we make some changes, this will only get worse. And the only way we can begin to back out of this crap is for a lot of people to face untimely deaths. It has gone that far, folks. You cannot clean up the mess without making a bigger one first, because the change will not be voluntary.

America is in a civil war. We are experiencing serious winds of change right now, and it will result in bloodshed. But instead of military formations marching against each other, it’s almost entirely done through political maneuvering and propaganda, with changes in the flow of money in the background. But those things will mean violence when they play out fully. Please get used to this idea, because even under ideal conditions, it would still be like this to some degree.

Your best answer is to become as self-reliant as possible. You’ll still see a lot trouble; we shall tribulate. But it won’t be apocalyptic in degree. Do you understand that the corporate media is your enemy? Not just unreliable, but it is dangerous and willfully intending to destroy your life. They are entrenched and fighting a defensive war, but if we do not destroy them, it most certainly will become an apocalypse. The MSM is globalist. This is not merely a political and cultural problem. Globalists are also the single biggest Antichrist we face right now; this is the face of Satan opposing the gospel. On the one hand, we should expect that human political activity will fight them, but we must fight globalism, too.

However, we do not war against flesh and blood, but against forces of Darkness (Hebrews 6:10-20) and we do not use weapons of the flesh (2 Corinthians 10:3-6). We find the nationalist political movement beneficial, but we are not in alliance with it. Our chief aim is to live the heart-led truth and speak about it as we progress in divine moral power. What men see in political terms is a manifestation of major moves by God to shape things by His wisdom, according to His divine moral character. We must see beyond the immediate manifestations and follow His hands on the moral plane. We are not the cattle God is herding, but the sheep of His pasture. We see this thing on both levels.

Addenda: Just a reminder that I am called to prophesy to the US. You’ll have to decide whether any of it is applicable to other countries. As noted in the comments, I promote decentralization as the first step toward obeying the Covenant of Noah. That applies across the board; almost nothing requires huge conglomerates to work properly. And I would hope it becomes clear that my spite for the corporate media is largely because it is so monolithic and centrally controlled. There are lots of decent journalists, editors and local news outlets. Let them do their job without having to march to the globalist agenda. Finally, American globalists are my target here, as I consider them by far one of the greatest threats to humanity as a whole.

    I almost feel like I should apologize for being too Canadian. I don’t understand how this “nationalist political movement” in the US is anything other than another sort of faceless, de-humanizing corporate entity.

    How do you feel about Bannon’s rise to the top?


  2. Ed Hurst says:

    Nothing wrong with the Canadian viewpoint. The whole idea behind nationalism is that you get to choose what how you want to do it, instead of someone outside dictating things. Your country’s brand of socialism tends to work a little better than ours ever could; your social culture is different. It didn’t take much exposure to the Canadian Armed Forces in Europe for me to see that. In some of the places I visited in Europe, socialism worked quite well, indeed, because the population wanted it enough to make it work. It’s not at all inconsistent with nationalism.

    What Trump is doing is marginally nationalist only in the sense that he’s tapping into the human instinct for devolving power to a lower level. Trump is the lesser of evils, but still evil, riding the backlash of nationalist instinct. If not Trump, it would have to be someone even worse. He’s likely to make a lot of our American righties somewhat happier than they have been since before I was born. Given the current shape of things, I believe I know how to function in the system that is arising; I would never ask you to endure such a thing. You belong where you are, as do I. Meanwhile, Trump is doing a lot of truly horrible things. But many of his opponents are no better, and would probably do worse if they were in power. Trump hides plenty, but generally puts his money where his mouth is. His opponents generally lie so much that they are a threat to the human race.

    My reference to the MSM as the enemy didn’t start with Bannon. I said the same kind of thing years ago, but I don’t get the press Bannon does. Trump’s choice of Bannon was a savvy move for Trump’s ends. I’m still not sure I can gauge Trump’s intentions fully, but I feel comfortable predicting a few trends. As I expected, this backlash is getting ugly and I’m trying to stay out of the way. I’m waiting for the serious bloodshed to start. Bannon’s rhetoric will help to provoke that.

    But that’s partly because our globalists are also not that much like globalists outside the US. Ours have always intended to run the whole world, to hold the key positions of power in a globalist system. Ours must be stopped for everyone’s sake. I cannot speak for those in your national leadership, nor much of anywhere else, but I do know that decentralized government is just the first step to restoring obedience to the Covenant of Noah. Globalism as a whole is diametrically opposed to that. There’s nothing wrong at all with international peace and trade, but globalists don’t own that; they aren’t the only ones promoting it. They are the only ones getting credit for it.

    Thanks, that clears it up for me. Globalist does mean something different to us than to the U.S.

    The ‘apologize for being too Canadian’ thing was a joke. We’re often teased about being overly polite and our propensity to say ‘excuse me’ all the time.
