My biggest regret in life, is that I didn’t know sooner, what I know now. I certainly don’t want to go back, and re-live my life over, but I do wish that I would have known more at an earlier age.
What I now think separates the small minority of truly successful people from the rest of us who have ordinary lives, is not intelligence, not emotional intelligence, not hard work, not ingenuity, not leadership, but something else.
I now think that people who have an accurate, solid understanding of the world, how it truly is, from an early age, have the most likelihood of being successful. Even if they aren’t highly intelligent, hardworking, or a leader.
Many times in my life, I have seen intelligence, hard work, ingenuity, and leadership not pay off. The field of engineering, for instance. Brilliant engineers developing and perfecting the pocket-sized scientific calculator, so that half of the engineering work force is no longer needed to make time consuming calculations. Brilliant engineers developing and perfecting AutoCAD, so that the best engineering draftsmen with a lifetime of experience can be replaced by $12 per hour high school graduates.
Let me put it this way, one person can spend a lifetime of working hard, and be broke by the time they are too old to work anymore, and another person can retire by the time they are 30 years old with more money than they will ever need. What separates these people?
I don’t think that it is intelligence, hard work, or other things that separate people, I think that it is in how well people truly understand the world, the way that it actually is, and from what age they understand the world.
I am almost 50 years old now, and I believe that the world is corrupt, unfair, treacherous, immoral, unethical, rigged, controlled, and manipulated. I wish that I would have understood this by the time that I was 12 years old. One of the reasons why I didn’t think like this or come to this understanding when I was young, was because I grew up in a middle-class household with both a mother and a father, in a peaceful, safe, friendly, pleasant town.
In my home growing up, in the schools that I went to, in the town that I lived in, there was fairness, justice, morality, ethics, kindness, charity, hospitality, an understanding of right and wrong, and a belief in God. I wasn’t prepared for the things that I would face when I left this town, and I was slow to catch on to the way that things actually were in the world.
I don’t know why my parents, grandparents, neighbors, teachers, and townspeople raised the children in this town this way. I don’t know if it was their idealism, thinking that this was the best way, or if this was just the easiest way for them. But it left me ignorant about the way things work.
Late in my life now, I am finding out all different kinds of things that I did not know about. For instance, I did not know what it was like to be discriminated against until I moved to Idaho, where it was 60% to 70% Mormon. I didn’t know about all the different kinds of mechanisms, practices, policies, procedures, customs, social networks, and business networks that come to bare to treat other people differently. Moving to North Dakota, the discrimination against non-local people was even worse than the discrimination from the Mormons.
But on a much, much greater scale, just about all of us in the United States have been kept ignorant about what is really going on in the world. We have been tricked, mis-treated, manipulated, lied to, and harmed in ways that most of don’t know or understand. I feel ignorant, stupid, and ashamed that I did not know.
Just like I wondered why my parents, grandparents, neighbors, teachers, and townspeople raised us children believing in certain things, I wondered why as adults we were all kept in the dark about what was really going on in the world. Was it just easier to keep everyone uninformed, too disruptive to let people know, or were most people thought to be too stupid to understand?
At the end of this blog post, I have included a link to a YouTube video. This YouTube video, is an audio recording that was made in 1967. This audio recording is 2-1/2 hours in length. In my lifetime, I have read about many of the incidents that are covered in this audio recording, but it has been hard for me to connect everything together in a mental timeline.
This audio recording made in 1967 covers:
- The interest of wealthy European bankers in the 1700s, of influencing world events.
- The interest of wealthy European bankers to consolidate world leadership.
- The plot, manipulations, and reasons for the European bankers to start WWI.
- The plot, manipulations, and reasons for the European bankers to create the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia.
- The reasons for the European bankers to create the Federal Reserve Bank in the U.S.
- The European bankers originating Communism, NAACP, ACLU, Anti-Defamation League, other Communist front organization, to disrupt society and politics.
- The reasons for the creation of the Center On Foreign Relations, CFR.
- The reasons behind Adolf Hitlers rise to power, his secret supporters, WWII.
- The creation of the United Nations, and the intention of the United Nations to be the basis for the creation of a one world government.
- The attempt of the European bankers to control all forms of media in the United States including television, radio, newspapers, and magazines, to be able to sway people’s opinions on war, government, politics, legislation, and religion.
- The attempt of the European bankers to undermine religion in order to bring about a one world government.
I listened to this 2-1/2 hour audio recording, for about one hour at a time. I will probably listen to it for a 2nd time, and a 3rd time. I believe that the information is mostly true, from what I have read and learned elsewhere.
This audio recording is a little difficult to listen to, the information is so unsettling, that it becomes overwhelming, and you just can’t take in anymore information at one time.
The people who would benefit the most are young people, but it will be hardest for young people to listen to and understand.
