"Right now we’re in a moment of deep transformation in planetary awareness in which big changes are taken place, and many more are yet to come. Any transformation that’s important entails (hard to avoid) a profound crisis; and this crisis is, without a doubt, undermining the foundations of our civilization. Nevertheless, we are faced with an opportunity without precedent to approach a new developmental paradigm. We, and only we, the citizens of this planet, have the responsibility and the opportunity to change the course of history."
(A New Paradigm for a World in Crisis, Pepón Jover del Pozo, Exopolitics, July 2009, Barcelona, Spain)
The word change is thrown emphatically around by politicians on the campaign trail. Once the votes are counted most everyone forgets they mentioned it, but the next election cycle will use that trick again.
Rightfully so people always want change, and yet the expected improvement does not happen when promised or the way it was promised. This is because one of the main functions of a political form of government is to slow down progress to a crawl, especially since change tends to affect the existing order, to undermine "the foundations of our civilization." Most of the time this is done so society would not plunge into chaos, they say, and they are partially correct about that. Nevertheless, society does often end up in chaos anyway, and many a time this is because the protectors of the status quo do not allow for rational change to happen naturally.
The ability of all political systems of government, parliamentary republics where officials are democratically elected included, to control the population by dividing people into antagonistic groups is used by certain entities to manipulate the electorate to their benefit. When things go too far with the disregard for the multitudes, we have riots in the streets, social revolutions, or something similar to what we experience these days in America when corruption in the media, FBI, within our political, judicial system, and within the intelligence agencies is being exposed big time. Even though the mainstream media would report on nothing foreign affairs outside a volcano eruption or an airplane crush in the Far East, news seep into human consciousness in many other ways, and if you know how to read in between the lines one could see that something similar goes on all over the world.
We are living a time of change and, sure enough, we did plunge into chaos, again. This is why we kind of needed this well organized global pandemic to quiet things down and to give us time to rethink the way we exist as a global community. It remains to be seen if it is going to work but the system will have to gradually change, evolve, improve, and make no mistake it will take hundreds years for the shift to be completed.
Entities in charge of our civilization are guided by outsiders into thinking our today's actions in terms of where we should be hundreds of years from now. One could only hope they do not get it wrong and are willing and able to stir humankind in the right direction. For, like or not, one way or the other somebody has to be in charge of the whole process. Advancement could not happen randomly and someone has to have control over this human experiment or else regular chaos turns into a terminally catastrophic event.
There is change deriving fluently from an urgent need to address an oppressive existential situation. This was the kind of change generated in the colonies and all over the world by the American Revolution. Then there is change organized behind closed doors, when for better or worse groups closely associated with our government create circumstances that more or less force the people, and the governments of other countries into accepting the necessary change. Such was the way America entered the World War II conflagration, or the period of change in the Arab countries of North Africa that resulted in the overthrowing of a number of dictatorial regimes.
The urgent need to address an existential crisis in the making in this instance, aside from the obvious curtailing of human rights and the committing of crimes no one was held accountable for and from using their oil reserves to create economic and political instability in the world was the result of the fact that similar to what had happened in 1979 in Iran, where as a result of people's legitimate frustrations with their leaders the country ended up being taken over by religious extremists, there was a very good chance the dictators of Libya and Egypt would have been replaced with equally dictatorial and a lot more dangerous for the world radical religious regimes. Similar to what we had in Iran, these religious states led by individuals with their own version of a new world order on their mind and plenty of money at their disposition coming from the oil fields would have undoubtedly sought to build atomic weapons. A logical consequence, the world would have been faced with the very serious threat of a basically imminent atomic Armageddon and at one point it would have been impossible to prevent the overnight demise of our civilization.
Proof this is not a wild supposition, when they tried to do the same thing in Syria, they realized most everyone who wanted Assad out was one way or the other associated with ISIS. As a result of that this regime change episode was wisely put indefinitely on hold. Assad is still in power today, the media is completely silent about him and no one spends a minute of airtime vilifying the leader of Damascus, as they were doing when the "revolution" was on. Most likely, though, this too is for the best.
In the world we live today lots of major unpleasant, when not tragic things happen. Not all of them happen by accident, and they are not always organized for malefic purposes. In some instances it is done in order to manipulate the people's perception of reality for a good cause. In others, to control and keep them enslaved to a perception of reality that is detrimental to them.
As we were reminded during the 2009 European Exopolitics Summit in Barcelona, Spain, "Any transformation that's important entails (hard to avoid) a profound crisis." By the very nature of how our society functions at this time, with many interest groups constantly vying for the resources of the planet and competing for a bigger portion of the market of consumers who happen to be humans working for a living and having lives of their own, it is, indeed, very hard to avoid crisis. No matter how inconvenient it may be, though, at one point change becomes inevitable.
Its inevitability derives from the fact that large segments of the population experience a paradigm shift in the way they understand what causes the disharmony and what needs to be done in order to address it. This often results in a slight change of direction and in a change of attitude, in the awareness of the fact that there is a better way of doing some of the things we have been doing on this planet for hundreds or even thousands of years. The profiteers of the status quo, on the other hand, would prefer that things stay the way they are and they keep trying to prevent the creation of circumstances that could generate change. Once the people see the light and their perception of reality improves, nothing could prevent though the status quo from being altered.
In a letter John Adams sent to Thomas Jefferson a few years after they renewed a friendship interrupted by dirty politics and family members caught in the whirlwind of partisanship already sweeping the just formed United States at the beginning of the 19th century, in total agreement with Jefferson, he reminds posterity the American Revolution started actually in the people's hearts and minds long before muskets and cannons would do their part at world changing:
“The Revolution was in the Minds of the People, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen Years before a drop of blood was drawn at Lexington. The Records of thirteen Legislatures, the Pamphlets, Newspapers in all the Colonies ought be consulted, during that Period, to ascertain the Steps by which the public opinion was enlightened and informed concerning the Authority of Parliament over the Colonies.” (John Adams to Thomas Jefferson, August 24, 1815)
As they would both admit emphatically, the American Revolution and all the changes that happened in Europe in the 18th century were the result of the progress brought about in sciences, philosophy, literature, in governing, human rights and in many other areas by the Age of Enlightenment. The same thing but at an even larger scale is expected to happen in the centuries ahead.
Changes in the way we exist that result in civilization advancement occur only when not just a few but a significant collective of people are exposed to knowledge or develop a better understanding of what they already know. This is why the main beneficiaries of the status quo have always sought to keep Earth-humans ignorant of the liberating truth and why they continue to find ways to preoccupy them with fabricated challenges. There is a very good chance that at this time of change their success rate is going to be increasingly minimal.
A Time of Change is an ample, under current circumstances underground book of knowledge. At this time the author intends to make it available here and possibly on other Internet platforms free of charge. Unless unforeseen events occur, the first of the tree volumes of the book will be released sometime this year. That will be followed by the individual release of the other two volumes over a span of twelve months. To know when the first volume comes out, enter your email address in the window provided on the home page. An announcement will be made at the time of its release.
