Let us look for common ground in this debate... the fact that corporations and governments are advancing towards fascism is our common ground - let us focus on that and unite!  Otherwise, we (the people) will remain divided and in stalemate, which only serves to benefit the powers we oppose.

Additionally, in keeping with the spirit of this website, let us look for solutions and effective ways that we can help those who want to be helped.

Wholly agreed on that, Matt. That's my goal: to unite everyone. Otherwise, we cannot hope to stop what is happening. It's just that, when I encounter this resistance from those who don't want to accept that something very wrong is going on, who seem to want to cling to the world as they believe it is - even when it clearly isn't - I feel compelled to attempt to persuade them otherwise. Of course, I recognize that many will simply go on resisting, or will not understand. Many don't want to face the end of the world as they know it. Heck, I don't want to, either. But we must all come to terms, now or later (when it's too late) with the fact that there is a world government forming right under our noses, and it is not some aquarian New Age entity of eternal bliss, but a very dark and malevolent entity that seeks our destruction and the enslavement of those who are spared. One only has to open their eyes to see it. The signs are everywhere today. It's my objective to wake up as many people to this as possible. It's not some intellectual parlor game or just something to discuss or contemplate.

Please forgive me, you have completely misunderstood my post and jumped to conclusions that were never intended. You have assumed many incorrect things about my beliefs and how I act regarding them. I shall try to write more articulately in future.

Sorry if I've offended you, Seeker, but when you characterized those who subscribe to so-called "conspiracy theories" ( I assure you, there is nothing at all theoretical about what I'm addressing here - it is verifiable fact) as "...paranoid and delusional...," I must take issue with that view. As I said, I once held the very same viewpoint that the three of you do. I mentioned, briefly, what changed my mind, though I didn't go into a great amount of detail. For that detail, I find it best, for reasons of holding this discussion to a reasonable amount of web space, to refer you to sources of evidence that are readily available to all. Then you can read or view these and make up your own mind, as I have done. I've already posted several links, which can be found above.

Just as you don't care for being mischaracterized, neither do I. There are millions of people in the United States, let alone world-wide, who have awakened to the same facts I refer to here. We are not paranoid or delusional. It can be neither paranoia nor delusion when it's the truth.

Matt, good luck with AFF. I wish you success with it.

I think many people have been mislead to believe that any talk of a conspiracy is a "conspiracy theory." The very words "conspiracy theory" have become a pejorative, used to pidgeon-hole those people who hold such views as crackpots, nuts and paranoids. I assure you, however, that everything I said above is factual, verifiable and, worst of all, only the tip of a very large and ugly iceberg.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that what you believe you know about the world is reality, for much more than you realize has been spoon-fed to you by an Establishment controlled media. I don't blame you, Seeker, for wanting to pursue your own personal interests and ignore what else is happening around you. I try to do the same, myself. In fact, I've had to compartmentalize my knowledge of what the elite have been up to and separate it from my daily life, to some extent, otherwise I'd be so depressed I couldn't function. Also, I believe, as bleak as the big picture appears to be, that we are ultimately going to prevail over the global elite in the end. In the first place, we outnumber them. Secondly, their plans require (or at least have, until recently) the use of stealth, secrecy and subterfuge to achieve their ends. As those of us who know continue to grow in numbers every day, there will come a point (hopefully, not too late) at which the elite will have no place to hide their dirty deeds any longer and they will be forced out into the open to confront us all directly. When that happens, we have the high ground, as they are the minority. But, what I fear is that far too many people are taking your approach and it is because of this that we may ultimately lose our liberties. I know the three of you are not Americans, so you, perhaps, aren't keeping up with developments here in the United States, but I certainly have been, on a daily basis, for nearly a year, now. Also, prior to that, I once held the same views you do. My personal discovery of several things and my subsequent continued research of them is what has lead me to the inescapable conclusions I now hold. I don't wish to insult anyone here, but may I suggest you take a look outside the box, with and open mind? I did. I once refused to believe some of the things I now believe. For example, that 9/11 was an "inside job," the work of various people within the CIA, the White House, and elsewhere. The evidence of this is undeniable. I once tried to ignore it, thinking it was absurd, until I saw key pieces of evidence that made it impossible to buy the phony official story. All I'm saying is, check it out. Don't accept my word for it; do your own research, as I've done. Just don't assume you know the truth without having examined the evidence. Fair enough?

You've hit the nail right on the head, Phanatic. The present farce presented as the American electoral process is the biggest dog and pony show yet. The only candidate in the running who is not a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is Ron Paul - everyone else is CFR, on both sides of the false left-right political spectrum.

Matt, good observations, however the slow way is exactly what the global elite have been using - for over a century, now. The CFR dates to 1921, itself and the men who founded it used Woodrow Wilson to gain control of the U.S. government, via the Federal Reserve Act and the income tax, in 1913. But, even this is predated by Cecil Rhoades' 19th century machinations designed to expand the then British Empire into a global empire. One outgrowth of this was the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), which was the predecessor and remains the Anglo counterpart of the CFR. So, it's not like this is a sudden move on the part of the global elite. They have been taking the long, slow incremental approach of the Fabian Socialists for quite some time and are only now nearing the completion of at least a major part of their plans. The EU took fifty years to evolve from a "trade agreement" and now the process is being greatly accelerated with the North American Union and the EU being merged into one entity even as the NAU is rapidly being formed behind the scenes by re-writing U.S. laws and regulations without the input of Congress.

As for being blatant about it, while stealth and secrecy have been the favored model for decades, the elite are getting ever bolder as they believe their plans are unstoppable and that they are getting near to completion. They have always loved to leave little clues and make outright public statements, confident that most people are too ignorant and too lazy minded to even find out about it. The truly scary thing is, they're right!

Fitness & Exercise / Re: Any Tips for Development of Pecs?
« on: March 18, 2008, 08:56:51 PM »
Gary, please, do not try to isolate your pectoral muscles, seriously... it's unhealthy and potentially dangerous.  I've seen more rotator cuff problems, shoulder impingement and bicep tendonitis cases than I care to imagine, thanks to to the stupidity of devices such as the pec-dec.  And of course, isolating pectoral muscles inevitability leads to man boobs if you happen stop working them out.

I do not support exercises that exist purely for growth - that is body building, which is something more suited to the beauty industry then than the health industry.

If you want advice on how to look good via body building, go to

But if you want advice on how to be healthy, we're more than happy to help you out.

And now that i've got that out of the way... in regards to your question;  I would actually (I know you didn't want to hear it) recommend doing a kinetically functional exercise such as the push-up.

Try a combination of;
  • Renegades/Manmakers
  • Clap Pushups
  • Pushups with feet raised on a bench
  • Slow pushups

The aforementioned exercises will develop your pectoral muscles in a way that compliments your overall upper body symmetry, and it will make you strong, powerful and yes... beautiful  ;)

Thanks, Matt. I'm really more interested in being healthy than in looking like Schwarzenegger or having a chest that looks like a butt, like Fabio.  ;)

Good, then; I'll just do pushups. Thanks.  :D

General Discussion / Re: Economics: the division of labour
« on: March 15, 2008, 04:33:41 PM »
Good thread, Matt. While I don't see a way out of the present dependence upon the division of labor (at least, none that wouldn't require generations to come about), I can see your point. There are times I would, personally, like to be able to at least make my income from all of the several talents I possess, thus becoming more self-actualizing, and perhaps providing a better lifestyle for myself. However, at the same time, I realize that I do some things better than others and so I might have to limit myself to just two things I do well: the one I'm employed at now (architectural drafting/CAD) and the one I aspire to (writing). I have other skills/talents, as well, but I don't believe I could generate much income from them.

I'm afraid that in our present society, most of us simply aren't equipped with the skills, knowledge and talents to build our own shelter (I could design my own, but I'm all thumbs with tools), make our own clothing, etc. The days of the self-reliant pioneer are long gone. Instead, today we are a society of wimps who, if the grocery stores ceased to exist, would starve to death.

Our dependence upon the division of labor is a lot like the dietary wrong turn mankind took 10,000 years ago, when we got off onto cultivating grains and domesticating livestock for dairy. In both instances, we've gone too far down the wrong road to turn back. In the case of diet, it's a sad fact that most of the world's population can't afford meat and, instead, subsists on a grain-based diet, replete with all the dietary illnesses that come with that, including rickets and scurvy. So, there is really not much hope for those in the Third World ever returning to a paleolithic diet. We in the affluent nations can afford it, so only a very small segment of the world's population will ever get back to eating the way our ancestors did. Same thing with the division of labor. We've gone too far away from the days when everyman fulfilled all the functions and executed all the tasks he needed to survive in the world. Today, most of the world are dependent upon others and those others are dependent upon us. But, consider that these two paths are what lead us to "civilization," in the first place. Without cultivation of crops and domestication of animals, we would have remained nomadic hunter-gatherers. It was this grounding in agriculture that allowed man to  live in permanent settlements, which evolved into cities. It was the division of labor that allowed us to expand our civilization to unimaginable sophistication and complexity. The road back to where we were is harder one to follow than staying on the same path, at least as most people see it. As long as people are more concerned about where they left the remote and what game's on TV tonight than they are about learning the skills they'd need to survive in the wild, if they had to, we will probably continue as we have been, as sad as that is.

This is a topic I've given a great deal of consideration, lately. Basically, my view is that we're a dumbed-down, weak and pathetically sheep-like society that has been lead by a cabal of the most evil men in history from behind the scenes. I refer to the globalist elite, such as the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, et al, who have exercised control over our lives for well over a century, without the knowledge of consent of most of the world's population. These are the New World Order psychos who are behind the movement to increase vaccinations, to convince us that eating meat and fat is bad for us and that eating manufactured crap is good, that modern medicine's mission should be to "maintain" diseases instead of curing them, and of course, the debasement of our currency, which has been nothing than fiat money called Federal Reserve Notes for the last 95 years. The recession we are now in, and the resultant skyrocketing food and oil prices are a direct result of the elites' deliberate attempt to totally destroy the middle class and our society, all for the purpose of creating a global government, under which we will all be serfs, working for the benefit of the global elite. To make it easier to achieve their goals, among those goals is the elimination of up to 80% of humanity (principally, the poor, or "useless eaters," as Zibgniew Brezinski refers to them), which was all laid out in Henry Kissinger's 1973 paper on the subject of population control and reduction.

Well, it would require volumes to go into this fully, so I'll leave you a few links to explore (with an open mind):

Fitness & Exercise / Any Tips for Development of Pecs?
« on: March 15, 2008, 11:03:12 AM »
As I near the completion of the weight loss phase of my paleo diet, it's become naggingly apparent to me that my pectoral muscles are underdeveloped - something I've always been self-conscious about, since I was a skinny kid. When I wasn't so skinny, the covering fat sort of mad eup for it, but now that's gone and what's really there (or not there) is obvious.

So, that said, does anyone have some exercise tips for pec development? My workouts are done on a Total Gym, which helps, somewhat, but I find it difficult to isolate my pectorals and give them a really good workout that will promote growth. I've seen the Perfect Pushup gizmo on TV and I think I may give that a try, also, but I'd like to know of any other techniques, preferably those that don't require any investment in equipment. Yep, I know about pushups, of course, but even there, it's difficult to get the results I want. Maybe free-weight bench presses?
