Sudden Mass Enlightenment Puzzles Congress and Causes National Security Alert

A sudden and unexplained mass enlightenment of the US population leads to jubilant celebrations

Washington - President Obama, U.S. congressmen and their aides held an emergency four hour-long meeting Wednesday to decide what action to take to stem a sudden and unprecedented mass enlightenment of the US population that threatens to destabilize the Government and create a fiscal crisis.

Millions of citizens jubilantly celebrated their new awareness as they suddenly realized they have been lied to all their lives on just about everything by their psychopathic, conscienceless leaders of major corporations, government and security agencies.

Residents in all major cities across the United States awoke Wednesday morning complaining that they were experiencing an inexplicable mental clarity that was causing them to realize the way they were about to spend their day was utterly pointless, a potential health threat and would only add energy and finances to a powerful wealthy elite that had been ruling their lives since as long as they could remember.

Congress was thrown into chaos when a majority of staff decided to simply stop showing up for work until their bosses resign; in a move of solidarity, energy companies turned off the power to government buildings and military bases, while water companies shut down their water supply; repair people refused to carry out repairs for the politically well-connected and television network staff refused to report the lies they are routinely ordered to tell by their editors.

One Chicago resident's report was consistent with many similar accounts coming in from across the country. Joe, 42 told us how he had become aware of the diversionary, divide and conquer machinations of the psychopathic oligarchs, especially in relation to abortion, health care, immigration, global warming, peak oil, 9/11, fake terrorism, both current wars and past wars, 'necessary police actions', empire building and resource plundering, left vs right, evolution vs creationism, fundamentalists vs everybody else!

"Wow! I sort of felt things weren't right but to suddenly be able to see the true nature of all the lies we've been bombarded with by media and Big Government is just mind-boggling," Joe exclaimed.

"The public seems to have finally understood that they're so sick and going bankrupt because of the FDA/AMA medical mafia and Big Pharma's Gestapo death grip over absolutely everything! I've noticed how food companies, Monsanto and Big Pharma's share prices have exploded over the past few years," said Joe. "I can see it's because they have bought Congress and have a complete monopoly over our food supply, health and non-existent consideration for others' well-being."

Reports are flooding in of people deciding to buy or trade for goods with hand crafters in their own region instead of shopping at Wal-Mart. Rather than buying GMO foods at the supermarket chain stores, they've formed co-ops with their neighbors, bought fresh food in bulk and are getting together to can foods, smoke meats and pickle vegetables - followed by a barbecue. Feeling so connected and enthused by that, ordinary people across the nation are organizing all kinds of meetings to learn all the old skills that their grandparents knew that made them independent.

People are leaving the cities in droves and, en masse, have established themselves on previously restricted government land. This resulted in a veritable frenzy of house-building and barn raising parties followed, once again, by barbecues where home-made pickles were enjoyed by all.

The reasons for the mass-awakening are as yet unclear. One possible explanation has been given by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency where officials have discovered that the normally high levels of fluoride added to the nation's drinking water were "accidentally omitted." It's suspected that workers at water plants are responsible. Government Health officials have advised all citizens to carry on working as normal, eat lots of fast-food and stay glued to their TV sets in the hope that any thoughts generated in people by seeing the reality of the situation will be pacified by toxins, apathy and a return to the steady atrophy of their brains.

Citizens have been urged by the Obama administration to report anyone they witness behaving in a non-consumer-capitalist manner to Homeland Security who, with the help of FEMA, will permanently detain anyone found more than 5 meters from a Television screen.

That was brilliant.  I especially like the part about fluoride in the water.  Thanks for the laugh!

Re: Sudden Mass Enlightenment Puzzles Congress and Causes ...

V, thanks for the great dig...it is cause for optimism!

The article quickly cuts to the core issue - we have a malevolent government that pretends to be representative and protective of the people.  People are beginning to figure out that the lie is spun and perpetuated through a "bought" media and corrupt politicians. 

The increase in the governBank gravity is being felt by the people as their lives are being ratcheted down under tyranny, oppressive taxes, high unemployment and coming retirement saving raids.

A coup of private interests over a government by and for the people has obviously taken place.  For example, the IRS is NOT a government agency - it is the private collection arm of the international banking cartel (via the Federal Reserve franchise).  And second, income and employment taxes are not necessary.  In fact they subtract much more than they add to commerce and the well being of the people.  The Federal Reserve, IRS and income tax amendment (16th)  were all established in 1913.  - see "Why an Income Tax is Not Necessary to Fund the U.S. Government."  - Devvy Kidd

From V's originating Post:

"The public seems to have finally understood that they're so sick and going bankrupt because of the FDA/AMA medical mafia and Big Pharma's Gestapo death grip over absolutely everything! I've noticed how food companies, Monsanto and Big Pharma's share prices have exploded over the past few years," said Joe. "I can see it's because they have bought Congress and have a complete monopoly over our food supply, health and non-existent consideration for others' well-being."

This is the part that is most cynical...our; and our families health, is being purposely damaged to reduce future entitlements and the non-productivity of the human herd at large.  

Here's the hard truth...people are figuring out that the corrupt government is their enemy.  People have a natural inclination to protect future generations through the good stewardship of resources and gains in civilization and they intuitively know the reverse is happening. 

Government must shrink as they are a predatory force.  The rule of law (Republic) is much more equitable and efficient than high priced political "interpreters."

Re: Sudden Mass Enlightenment Puzzles Congress and Causes ...

The author of the piece is Ignatius O'Reilly. This is a nom de plume taken from the protagonist of the novel " A Confederacy of Dunces" Ignatius J Reilly

It is a brilliant book written by John Kennedy Toole. It was published 11 years after he committed suicide. It was brought to the publisher by his mother. He won the Pulitzer for it in 81.

I can't recommend it too highly given the current state of affairs. It will have you laughing from beginnig to end. It is why I love the South and New Orleans in particular

The article was posted on SOTT on April 1.

A Confederacy of Dunces is a picaresque novel written by John Kennedy Toole, published in 1980, 11 years after the author's suicide. The book was published through the efforts of writer Walker Percy (who also contributed a revealing foreword) and Toole's mother Thelma Toole, quickly becoming a cult classic, and later a mainstream success. Toole posthumously won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1981. It is now considered a canonical work of modern Southern literature and is said to have been the favourite book of influential Southern comedian, Bill Hicks. A Confederacy of Dunces is published by Grove Press, an imprint of Grove/Atlantic, Inc.

The title derives from the epigraph by Jonathan Swift: "When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him." (Thoughts on Various Subjects, Moral and Diverting)

The story is set in New Orleans in the early 1960s. The central character is Ignatius J. Reilly, an educated but slothful 30-year-old man still living with his mother in the city's Uptown neighborhood, who, due to an incident early in the book, must set out to get a job. In his quest for employment he has various adventures with colorful French Quarter characters.

Crazy.... maybe that's what led me down the path I have gone down lol I remember it being so much different from anything else I had ever read (and I read alot) I tried to get some of my friends to read it but they wouldn't have anything to do with it.
