Great to see this group. Black free thought needs to be spread a lot more.

I am talking about conspiracies that exist. Astrotheology and the mason craft.. I am not a fascist, I think all people should be treated equally. People immediately run to "oh look, more CT paranoia BS" thanks to the media. Just remember that if they made a movie about it, its probably just make believe guys :) You want to talk about fascism, your going to pop another forum discouraging people from this sort of information?
Im done debating this with you. I will continue to show this to other people, and I will continue to hear discouragement from people(s) like you, but its not going to stop or discourage me in anyway. The Zeitgeist movement and the Venus Project are very important for people to atleast know about. Let them dispute it themselves.

I see I'm going to have to start a new thread on this subject. Too many coincidences, occult conspiracy theories--this is the very stuff of superstitious thinking, which in the modern world is the royal road to fascism. I've dealt with this in a couple of my discussion threads in this group. We need to learn to distinguish rational investigation into the conspiracies that have actually existed from crypto-fascist occultist paranoia. This is not BlackPlanet.com; we should demand a higher standard.

well all in all, they all have the same "function" my friend. Control. When you say nonsense about masons, they are the ones that carry out the will of the elitists. They dont off their own for talking about where their "secret tree house" is... I understand if you think im bats**t crazy, and for awhile I disregarded it also. I'm just saying there are waaay too many coincidences for this to be assumed "paranoia".

So if you wanna leave it be that's fine with me sir. This discussion board isnt about that anyway, and that is fair.

I wonder whether here in the US or in other countries where people struggle with poverty and being under-educated, we cant assume this just happens because the people do not have the means. Keeping people under-educated and brainwashed with religion will always be the suppressing "opiate for the masses". Do you agree?

To be fair, I took a look at the Zeitgeist movement web site. There are ideas in there worth considering. I did not see any reference to any nonsense about the masons or astrotheology, so I'm hoping there's no connection to the Z.M. I disagree also with the notion that the Abrahamic religions are uniquely horrendous. An argument can be made that Hinduism is much worse.

Secret masonic conspiracy? Astrotheology? You've got to be kidding me.
Comment by Charley Reynolds on April 21, 2009 at 3:52pm
I find resistance alot with this, but what is crackpot occult about this?

I would like to know where my logic is flawed with this, and ill talk about whatever it is you would like to talk about here so I dont offend anyone. I would like an explanation to my "crackpot occult world views" please.
Comment by Ralph Dumain on April 21, 2009 at 12:46pm
I have no time or patience for any more crackpot occult world views. I pursue political topics in other groups and blogs. My conceptual takes on race and ethnicity can be found in the group "Conversations on Race, Ethnicity, and Culture".
Comment by Charley Reynolds on April 20, 2009 at 11:28pm
I totally agree with you. And let me state that I was not making an assumption about the state or "goal" of this group, I just wanted my stance to be let known.

So with that out of the way, the reason why I discuss the monetary system is because that is (amungst religion) one of the biggest problems we face in living in a "socialized" society. People think having socialized systems means communism... This is thanks to the masons and the media that they influence.. People only know there god on the TV, and I think its time we force people to see what they dont want to see. That is what zeitgeist will do. It breaks down Astrotheology and its underlying roots in all abrahamic/judaochristian religions.. You have to watch to fully understand Ralph. Please watch it and let me know what you think.

You're on the right track, young man. Never heard of the zeitgeist movement, though: I know the meaning of the word, but I can't imagine any politics that could be associated with it. The goal of this group is not to maintain divisions based on skin color, but to overcome them based on a realistic assessment of social reality. I'm not sure what you are saying about the monetary system, but the basic nature of the money economy needs to be called into question: Obama's attempts to stabilize it, feeding yet more undeserved money to the corporate bloodsuckers while the rest of the population--and not just the so-called middle class"--is being decimated, only exposes the need to overturn the entire system.
