As humanity on a global scale, the big problem we are presently facing is something that we think of as “Big Business”. It is really time to wake up.
Business was more or less the form into which the Forces of Retrogression, on all of its many levels, migrated as the evolution of consciousness gradually generated the “discoveries” of the “New World”, the creation of a more transportable form of currency (what we now call money), and the domination of commerce power over land ownership power. All of these huge shifts led to the failure of the ability by the powerful few (known in those times as Royalty) to control and dominate the nations of the world in the guise of the King States.
Over the last 400 years, the migration of these Retrogressive Forces of control into Commerce Power has become more focused. Since their last failure at global control in the armed effort we call the two World Wars, their areas of domination in the arena of Commerce, or Business as it has come to be known, has grown, and their tactics have changed dramatically. They have migrated from conquest by dense physical war, which the proliferation of atomic weapons made unacceptable, to conquest by dominating and controlling the Wealth Power of the planet. On this front they have made enormous progress. The motives that drive the Forces of Retrogression are not compatible with a democratically structured and run society. This is not rocket science. It is a simple observable fact.
Democracy is about the Common Good and the General Welfare. It runs on the energy of Cooperation. It is about, as our Constitution and the Constitutions of the vast majority of recognized Nations point out, Life Liberty and Justice for All. (For a list of Nations with constitutions see Wikipedia)
Big Business is about accumulating and growing the power to control environments of any kind for its separative, personal uses. It refers to the growth or expansion of such power as making a profit which means gaining an ever greater share of the total planetary wealth. It runs on competition, on the battle to survive. Big Business has no moral or ethical code that governs its behavior beyond lip service. It will do anything to survive, and survival means the power to control “markets” in an ever growing circle of dominance in whatever sector in which it happens to live. Markets is a sophistic term which includes all aspects of human interaction that can be manipulated in some form to generate profit”.
The Forces that were defeated on the dense physical plane in WWII have reappeared in force in many of the worlds corporations. Many major banking institutions, insurance, pharmaceutical manufacturers and sellers, major weapons manufactures, and major oil corporations persist in business activities that have been scientifically proven to be massively destructive to the social and physical networks of Humanity. For example, besides generating huge narcotic problems such as the opioid epidemic, it would include the education and health delivery systems and, as the recent wave of 100 year storms demonstrate, the environmental balance of the Planet.
A more recent example of this problem in the brand new Tech Industry can be seen in the reactions of Face Book and Twitter to alarming revelations regarding the effect of their businesses on the Common Good. Both of these brand-new mega corporations, in terms of the products they sell, are being extremely challenged to see the difference between publishing lies that interfere with the national security of governments and the free election processes of Nations and their advertising revenue.
Big Business has always seen Government as a problem. It launched what in retrospect was an outright war on government with the election of Ronald Reagan. In his Inaugural Address, January 20, 1981, (in what is, in my opinion, a spectacular piece of sophistry) Reagan launched the war. “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”
A Brief Aside
It is important to realize and understand that the Retrogressors are and have always been Masters of Sophistry or Casuistry, the use of cleverly crafted fallacious arguments, especially with the intention of deceiving. Such masters have been on the payrolls of the Powerful Few for centuries. It is highly likely that they prepared the speech that Reagan delivered at his 1981 Inaugural.
Today this ancient skill is being called “alt truth”. And there are masters of this skill operating as paid agents and propaganda arms of Big Business in major media outlets all over the planet, a major example of which is called the NRA.
This war has been going on for some 36 years. During this period Big Business has been about accumulating and growing the power to control environments of any kind. Sophistically mouthing cooperation, they have consistently used the weapons of competition. While paying lip service to moral and ethical codes, they have violated every law. Just “The presidency of Ronald Reagan in the United States was marked by multiple scandals, resulting in the investigation, indictment, or conviction of over 138 administration officials, the largest number for any U.S. president.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reagan_administration_scandals
But make no mistake. This problem was not an” exclusive to a political party” thing. Big Business is not a political party. It is much more like an Army. For troops, it employs a cadre of persons called lobbyists, and any person in government who can be approached and used will be.
Big Business has literally purchased governmental officials both elected and appointed to do their separative selfish bidding. And, besides the in pocket elected Congress persons and Senators, they now have a President and an administration that is actually running the Government as a Business in every respect, literally. This situation represents pretty much what Reagan, in that 1961 Inaugural Address was aiming to achieve.
“In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem…. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed. It is my intention to curb the size and influence of the Federal establishment and to demand recognition of the distinction between the powers granted to the Federal Government and those reserved to the states or to the people…. Now, so there will be no misunderstanding, it’s not my intention to do away with government. It is rather to make it work—work with us, not over us; to stand by our side, not ride on our back. Government can and must provide opportunity, not smother it; foster productivity, not stifle it.”
The obvious thing to note here, a thing that went completely unnoticed by most everyone, is that when Reagan was saying that government has “grown beyond the consent of the governed”, he meant Big Business, the Community of huge Corporations. His “Us” did not mean you and me.
So, none of this is new. Corruption of the Cooperative processes necessary for the survival of Humanity on the planet has always been a major problem with our evolutionary development. The present Administration is rapidly generating a long list of such scandal’s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_federal_political_scandals_in_the_United_States
The problem with “Big Business” is that everything about it, the economic theories, the ideology, psychology, and the motivation that drives it, all of this is grounded in an illusion of Reality. This illusion was manufactured and implemented eons ago. “Certain units of humanity—then existent— [the first solar system] were so completely conditioned by these material principles and so deliberately unready for moving on to the comprehension of another set of principles (more expressive of the divine nature) that they remained of “fixed and selfish material purpose” and a planned distortion of the divine will was intelligently created by them.” The Rays and the Initiations P. 350
The original guidance from the Planners which offered the possibility of a different reality based on Principles of Creation, which were unable to be demonstrated in Science at that time, eventually morphed into what has become religion. Much of Religion was co-opted and corrupted almost from the get go. It too has been utilized to further the ends of those who now inhabit and control Big Business.
Thus, enthralled as they are in the illusion of a single dimensional cosmos, the dense physical plane is all there is. Although ancient, the mantra that “Life is a battle for survival and the best, strongest, smartest, most ruthless win” is a hands down fact with them. Heart concepts such as morality or compassion, other than window dressing for the fools, really play no role in their decision making processes. As Milton Friedman said “There is one and only one social responsibility of business – to use its resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits.”
This is their base operational assumption regarding one’s purpose and place on the planet. (Witness the present commentary coming from them regarding the failures of support for Puerto Rico and who is going to pay the outstanding Debt from Puerto Rico’s financial collapse.) Other than the Second Amendment—which, was proposed in 1789 and is being completely misconstrued from its original intention by a retrogressively focused Supreme Court—not one of the guarantees for human life that are listed in the first ten amendments of the Constitution matters when it comes to the bottom line of the Corporate Rulers who have been engaged in a stealth campaign for the past 36 years to establish control over the United States.
They will fail. Again, I might add, because as history reveals this is not their first attempt. However, given the rapidly expanding understanding of the realities of Science and unquestionable evolution of consciousness over these many, many centuries of struggle, this may well be their Last Attempt.
Do you not see that the Cosmic Consciousness is in convulsion?
We know the course of the battle—the Plan of the Creator cannot be altered.
From the Beginning the dark ones struggled.
From the Beginning We conquered.
