A rather funny thing happened at the beginning of this month that involved a fictitious article penned by the little known but much loved Igantious O'Reilly for publication on April Fool's Day. The article, Sudden Mass American Enlightenment Puzzles Congress and Causes National Security Alert, very quickly became a hugely popular editorial that was picked up by thousands of alternative news websites, forums and discussion groups around the world.

What was it about this article that resonated with so many people?

In times such as these, the powers that be seem to be getting even more desperate to hold onto control and keep the wool pulled over our eyes. A message of hope that the world CAN change is a powerful one, provided that as many of us as possible wake up to the reality of the lies we have been told. We CAN collaborate by sharing our knowledge and joining together to form new communities that no longer feed the greedy, power-hungry ambitions of the psychopaths who are world leaders, financial oligarchs, and run or own multinational conglomerates.

To protect ourselves, what needs to be done is to wake up as many other people as possible. Only when a sufficient number of people are awake will they be able to awaken those around them. Then, and only then, will it be possible to form a united movement to simply remove all support from the psychopaths that have taken over our world and begin planning for the future of OUR children - rather than the offspring of the ruling psychopaths.

That is why they lie and deceive us. That is why they work so hard and spend so much money denying humanity the knowledge it needs. Because if people were awake, if people understood what kind of creatures they are, that they really aren't human, then they would no longer have our support. And that is precisely how they do what they do. Simply because we believe their lies, we human beings help them to not only get into power, but to stay in power with not only our support, but often our blessing as well.

If every soldier on the battlefield just laid down his gun and refused to fight anymore, if every worker of the government system that keeps the "chain of command" running just refused to participate in the madness anymore, and did so with the support, en masse, of the rest of the people, the nightmare would end and our dreams could become reality.

What can we do to make this happen?

Detoxify Your Mind, Body and Soul

In her book Detoxify or Die, Dr. Sherry Rogers writes in her Introduction:
"You have been brainwashed into believing that the diagnosis given to your condition, a mere label, is the end of the line. But nothing could be further (and more dangerously) from the truth. In fact, the name or label that has been given to your collection of symptoms is totally inconsequential. The only thing that matters is what has caused the symptoms..."
What causes these damaging symptoms are the toxins in our polluted environment, the food we eat, the water we drink and even in the air that we breathe. They have catastrophic detrimental effect on our health and well-being. Detoxing is a proven method that will assist the body to get rid of the overload of toxins - heavy metals for example - that it cannot do without help. Especially not since we absorb new doses of toxicity every single day.

Doctors and researchers are increasingly issuing dangers of a myriad of ingredients that multinational food conglomerates have found profitable to mass-market to unwitting consumers. Genetically modified foods are a major contributor to the deteriorating health in America. Gluten is exceptionally detrimental to health and a major cause of human disease. Refined sugar poses many dangers, as does high-fructose corn syrup. Addictive junk food and processed foods are major contributors to obesity and diabetes epidemics.

You will experience beneficial results by eliminating these 'foods' from your diet, taking steps to assist your bodies to get rid of this built-up burden. Instead, fill the void left by their absence with fruits, vegetables, high quality meats and foods consistent with your biological needs. Eat foods that will protect your immune system rather than tax it. Try diets such as the Mediterranean diet, which places emphasis on a wide variety of minimally processed, seasonally fresh and locally grown foods. As daunting as it may sound at first, by making these changes you may begin to feel a sense of vitality that is difficult to imagine.

Deep breathing and mediation are energizing techniques that can also bring you renewed vigor. Breath is of such fundamental importance to our existence that it requires particular attention. Breathing programs help you to relax and gently work through past emotional and psychological trauma. Recent research confirms what practitioners of yoga breathing techniques have always known, that deep breathing can relieve stress, boost circulation throughout the body, reduces pain and generally improve your life, bringing you peace, happiness, and ultimately, a successful and fulfilling life.

The benefits of meditation are also supported by research: reducing heart disease, cutting the risk of a heart attack, increasing concentration, helping treat insomnia, boosting memory as well as giving protection to and strenghtening the brain.


Americans' responses to their sudden enlightenment - as postulated by O'Reilly - are positive steps to aim for. Combining resources to build new communities; deciding to buy or trade goods from local producers rather than corporate chain-stores; forming co-ops to purchase fresh foods in bulk with their neighbors instead of buying GMO frankenfoods at 'convenient' stores; coming together to can foods, smoke meats, pickle vegetables and enjoy meals as a healthy and happy community. Working together in this way would create a powerful feeling of being connected and generate enormous enthusiasm for day-to-day living. Organize meetings to rediscover and relearn all the old skills your grandparents knew that made them independent. Become creative: share your time, knowledge and skills with others in a reciprocal exchange of energy and work towards shared goals.

Educate yourself

The main preparation that people need is a good education about human psychology; not just what simply passes for psychology today, (which, like everything else, has been co-opted by pathological deviants), but accurate knowledge of individuals and larger social systems. Why? Because it is in this kind of knowledge that we have our first layer of protection. If we really know about lies and liars and evil and deception, we are less likely to be fooled by Wolves in Sheep's Clothing. They cannot penetrate and subvert our action groups; they cannot penetrate and subvert all the fields of government and education and religion and so on, which is how they have taken control of our world. Why is the world in the state it's in? Because human beings do not have this knowledge, they are at the mercy of The Cult of the Plausible Lie.

People need knowledge of the true problem. Just that, just identifying the real cause, is a huge step. It makes the world understandable. You can understand why some are motivated to relentlessly bomb civilian populations. You understand why Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and the rest of their gang lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq, and why their lies cost the lives of over a million Iraqis. You stop wondering how people can commit such horrors because you see them for what they are. You understand that they act this way because they cannot act any other way - they have no conscience.

So the first thing this knowledge brings is a clear view of the world. Understanding this will make a big difference in how we approach the problems facing us. Clarity enables solutions to appear that otherwise eluded us while we suffered from the delusion that the problem lies with us.

Educate others
'All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing'

- Edmund Burke
In a recent inspiring video, CIA Officer Robert Steele stresses the importance of blogging:
"If you bloggers self-organize and attach yourselves like leeches to specific issues, corporations, organizations, challenges, you will be the intelligence minutemen of this century. The power is in your hands. There aren't enough guns to kill us all, and Haliburton can't build the jails fast enough to keep us down."
The power IS in your hands. So, detoxify your body, mind & soul, collaborate with like-minded people around the world. educate yourself and get blogging to educate others. Speak truth to power, give the lie what it asks for - the TRUTH! No effort is wasted, no contribution too small.

There is hope.

You never know...perhaps one day - and sooner than we may think - there will be mass enlightenment that tips the scales in favor of a new and better world. But it won't happen all by itself. It's up to all of us to act towards our own destiny, now.

Now if you listen closely
I'll tell you what I know
Storm clouds are gathering
The wind is gonna blow
The race of man is suffering
And I can hear the moan,
'Cause nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

- Maya Angelou, Alone
