Unlikely as it may seem, I think the following directly
affects how the prison and judicial system in this country treats, could
treat, will treat its citizens. It is up to each of us to have Knowledge.
That's what the Patrick Crusade is: People Aligned To Replace Injustice
& Cruelty with Knowledge - P.A.T.R.I.C.K. We are in an age where
there is a lot of information (true and false), and when something comes
along that seems complicated, technical, or more intellectual than one
thinks h/she is capable of understanding, the tendency is to go on to something
else. A lot of times that's okay - leaving things to the experts,
and all that sort of thing...
However, we are living in a different world today than
we were only 10 years ago. Now we have reached a time when it is
not okay to shrug things off and "leave things to the experts" because
many times the truth is hidden. Many times the Spin is 180 out and
the public buys it and feels collectively "fearful". In a lot of
cases there never was any boogie man but by the time this is realized,
laws like 3-Strikes and Patriot Act are in place and then it's too late...
Mmmm - mind control can be powerful on the uninformed. The government
stampeded the people into a "tough on crime" frenzy in the past and now
the people are coming 'round to see that this was - for the most part -
a big mistake.
The 911 stampede was speedy, but it doesn't have enough
of the masses in a frenzy.
Well here comes the next attempt at creating a worldwide
How one reacts will affect the outcome for not just you
but the entire world.
Some of you have heard the news and predictions about
the price of gasoline going up. They predict that in 10-15-20 years,
at the rate oil is being used, there won't be any more oil and we'll "have
to go back to being 'Caveman' ". The term for that sort
of discussion is called "Peak Oil" (in case you have not heard of it before).
I am not a doomsayer. Like many of you, I seek
the truth. I am logical and intuitive as some of you may know.
I work to see all sides of a situation as best possible. There is
no question that oil and coal are finite materials here on earth, and that
"one day" there won't be any more. That's not the argument here.
My argument is using "this" time period on earth to confuse issues so that
people don't know whether to be scared and then hoard, etc., or to relax
and see that the sky isn't falling with respect to oil reserves.
Creating confusion is a form of Mind Control, a form of "dulling" your
Natural senses. No mind can be controlled without your permission
unless you do not try to objectively see all sides of what you are being
told by government and news media. Sometimes that means taking a
LOT of time doing research. Thankfully, there are those who do take
the time and then are gracious enough to pass what they found to others
who are interested.
There is a tiny % of people who don't care about what
happens to oil because they are utilizing alternative energy as their main
source of energy. So it doesn't matter to them whether the
information being passed around is true or false. Oil doesn't affect
them one way or the other.
For the benefit of everyone else, I offer the following:
From all indications after reading the research by the presenter below,
I feel confident that there is an attempt to stampede the American people
into really unfortunate consequences, which I also think is preventable.
The Age of Coal began when declining supplies of wood
in Great Britain caused its price to climb. Two centuries later, oil took
the place of coal as "the king of energy sources" because of its convenience
and its high flexibility in many applications, but coal was neither exhausted
nor scarce. Oil substitution is simply a matter of cost and public needs,
not of scarcity. To "cry wolf" over the availability of oil has the sole
effect of perpetuating a misguided obsession with oil security and control
that is already rooted in Western public opinion--an obsession that historically
has invariably led to bad political decisions.
Blessings to all,

Subject: Another look at 'Peak Oil', Who's behind it,
"Of course, higher prices also make known deposits
of oil that were previously too costly to exploit viable economically,
as well as reducing demand. Consequently, it is impossible to ever literally
run out of oil. The possibility should not be a factor in the energy debate."
Bartlett, Senior Fellow, National Center for Policy
This Peak Oil 'thingy' looks to be quite a rabbit
hole, c'mon folks let's see where it takes us.........
"There are always a few, better endowed than others,
who feel the weight of the yoke and cannot restrain themselves from attempting
to shake it off.... These are in fact the men who, possessed of clear minds
and far-sighted spirit, are not satisfied, like the brutish mass,
to see only what is at their feet, but rather look about
them, behind and before, and even recall the things of the past in order
to judge those of the future, and compare both with their present condition.
These are the ones who, having good minds of their own, have further trained
them by study and learning. Even if liberty had entirely perished from
the earth, such men would reinvent it. For them slavery has no satisfactions,
no matter how well disguised."
