Noriega stopped giving the American government a cut of the drug money - that's a no no. Gaddafi was gonna start Africa's currency to rival other nations, a currency outside elite influence.

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
Our Spiritual Declaration: Plato

Chapter 33: Plato


1. Plato is born 428 BC, Greece, and he goes on to become one of the most influential figures in shaping modern thought. The following is key philosophical points from his works.

Plato’s Cave
2. Imagine lifelong prisoners deep inside a cave. Chained to the wall by their feet and necks, darkness surrounds the captives. A fire is kept burning behind them, and men with cutouts of animals and other objects move the cutouts in front of the fire, casting shadows on the cave wall. Interpreting this as reality, the prisoners name the shadows. One day a prisoner is released from his chains and shown the fire and cutouts. He recoils in horror and begs to be put back on the wall. The guards tell him the fire and cave is also something of an illusion. They drag the prisoner outside to view the sun and landscape, then he’s pulled back in and chained to the wall. He tells the story to other prisoners who think he's gone crazy, and the prisoners believe anyone who unchains himself turns insane. The cave represents our everyday vision – things we see, everything is hazy and confusing. Outside of the cave represents the world of ideas. Once a person has experienced the world of ideas he can never go back just as the prisoner doesn’t want chained once again. Freedom from bondage of material illusions causes isolation and depression from mainstream society.

General Concepts
3. A main concern for everyone is taking care of themselves. When considering what the "self" is we realize it's our soul. Therefore, a main concern is taking care of our soul; because only then can we properly care for others. Those who take care of their soul are the virtuous, and only the virtuous should rule over others (self-improvement before leadership).

4. A soul is trapped in the body like a horse in a barn. When a horse leaves the barn is better decided by the farmer. Suicide is deciding when the soul leaves the body, akin to the horse deciding when to leave the barn. Only the farmer (God) owns the horse (soul) and knows the right time in taking the horse to pasture (afterlife).

5. What is piety? "Is the pious loved by the gods because it is pious, or is it pious because it is loved by the gods?" Plato leaves many questions unanswered, as philosophical thought is an unfinished work in progress.

6. Better a victim of wrongdoing rather than the offender; because perpetrating a wrong is worse than being victimized by it. Punishment is better for the offender than going free; because proper punishment is more likely to cure a sin.

7. Courage arises from anger carrying out commands of reason. Self-discipline is found in everyone carrying out their duties. Wisdom exists when reason rules. Injustice occurs when these parts conflict.

8. Living on the glory of ancestors is meaningless; rather we should glorify life based on our own deeds.

9. When a tour guide takes the same route many times we trust the guide in knowing the right path. The guide tells an amateur the path. The amateur has truth of the path but not the knowledge. Direct knowledge of the path is known only by the guide. In this case, as in most cases, truth is just as useful as knowledge. The second-hand truth about the path may be forgotten over time. and the amateur leads others astray. In this parable the tour guide represents God and the path represents the correct way to live. The amateur is the average human, who can't possibly know the correct way to live, but God does, and He is the one who shows us the right path.

10. Thinkers live in the invisible world, neglecting body for the sake of mind. In the afterlife thinkers could happily enter this invisible world. Overly concerned with this world and things in it like money or other people or their own body, these people are reincarnated; because they don’t wish to leave the physical world. What is the main theme of your soul? The gluttonous reincarnate into pigs, the violent become wolves, the overly sociable become ants.

11. Offspring is a continuation of the parent’s life via children. Other citizens desire leaving behind ideas or a good reputation. In all these things what we seek is immortality.

12. No one is born virtuous. Virtue comes through yielding our appetites and anger to reason. Reason has no master and travels anywhere. Reason attached to the material world produces a clever criminal, or it ascends to the world of ideas, producing a scientist or philosopher.

Government & Society
13. Resources needed for maintaining excess luxury in society leads to war. War means a military must be raised. Raising a military entails creating a society fostering militaristic values. Accomplishing this requires the following: censoring literature to persuade people all is in order in the afterlife; citizens must obey authority; self-control is essential; professional theater is suppressed otherwise people believe they can switch between roles as actors do; music bolsters courage and aggression; strict dieting guidelines for a healthy body; and invalids are allowed to die.

14. A series of tests involving physical and mental manipulation and torture weeds out the weak and remaining strong citizens are appointed as city Guardians. Auxiliaries are appointed to assist Guardians. This is a meritocracy (status based on merit) rather than a democracy (status based on election), aristocracy (status based on wealth), or a monarchy (status based on ancestry). The wages of workers are monitored and not allowed to go too high or low. A maximum and minimum wage protects from excessive wealth and poverty. Internal dissent is stirred in neighboring states so they pose no threat. Education must discourage innovation or individuality, as this breaks apart a tight-knit society.

15. Plato compares this society to a soul. Appetite, reason, and anger compose the soul. Reasoning is comparable to the best-educated Guardians. Anger corresponds to Auxiliaries, as emotions are reasoning’s fuel. Appetite is the working class with unrefined passions. Guardians ruling, Auxiliaries assisting, and working class supplying the necessities of life completes our soul/society. Plato assumes the appetite (working class) will rebel. Then anger (Auxiliaries) reminds appetite that it's a subject not a ruler. Ruling appetite causes gluttony, drunkenness, and sex to rule. If anger controls it goes on raging vendettas. Reason is the only one of the three with self-restraint. However, a life with all reason and no emotion leads to death and society not worth living in, so reason leaves rooms for appetite and anger. Plato’s definition of anger is the spirit motivating us to do good and bad.

16. In Plato's ideal society, men and women are treated as equals, meaning they live together with inevitable sexual attraction. A yearly mating festival is designed with a rigged lottery in determining mating pairs (the mates with most desired qualities are paired together, hence the lottery's rigged). Infants are separated from parents and raised by the state. People beyond prime mating age (25-40) can have intercourse but only with contraceptives and an abortion if the need arises. Detachment of children from mothers causes adults to think of every child as their own.

17. Philosophers rule this society. From childhood to age 17 Guardian candidates study literature, music, and participate in athletics. Ages 17 to 20 solely focus on military training. At the age of 20, mathematics is learned for 10 years. Then investigation into dialect begins. After 5 years of training in dialects, the candidates rejoin military service and their character is examined for the next step, resuming dialect until reaching a pure idea of "good". Finally, these candidates organize the state and lives of people. These philosophers rule for a short time before being replaced in a rotation. Temporary service is important so ideas and visions stay fresh.

18. Plato figures greed sets in and a timocracy (honor is the guiding idea) develops. That degenerates into an oligarchy (rule by the rich or dominate), and economic classes divide then incite internal warfare. The divide between rich and poor grows larger until the numerous poor overthrows the few rich. A democracy (rule by all) is established to ensure equality. Individuality grows and every imaginable lifestyle flourishes. Discipline ceases to exist. With the choice of every lifestyle available, fads come and go. Living in the here-and-now, in the present, is viewed as happiness. In time a tyrant rises up. He gives relief to those in debt and redistributes land from rich to poor. This tyrant demands absolute power. When citizens protest he throws them into a war so they feel as if they need him. The tyrant executes any who shows opposition to him. Eventually only slaves are left. Talk about seeing into the future from over 2000 years ago! Has your nation fallen into the quicksand of greed? If so then the above is familiar.

While we pay attention to Israel and ISIS, the war in Ukraine goes on - and Moldavia is coming up...
This will be a tense weekend.

Hmm...

You know, I have been thinking about this, while I do not agree with everything that OP has said, I still respect what he has said.

Now looking how things have been escalating past days on this spinning rock, well, not "good" I would say.

I am simply amazed how many people simply swallow the bait aka Russia is "bad" "bad" "bad" without thinking that there has been no proof that the Russia was behind the certain event but they simply rely on social network and some media wanker.

In fact these people do not think, they react.

And I guess this is something that Elite would use for their agendas benefit since most (not the most intelligent) people believe everything they read/head.

Anyways, I think that it is time to open powers and create some earthquakes and superstorms. And I thought I would simply be on lazy mode for few years without thinking about it...

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
To be specific, I am an initiated priest of Yemonja in the Afro-Cuban religion of La Regla de Ocha; It is commonly referred to as Santeria. These religions, it seems as if you know this, deal directly with potent spiritual energies. We deal with our ancestors, guardian spirits, and the Orisha. The Orisha are considered highly elevated beings that are archtypically and naturally manifested through people and forces of nature respectively.

Things that I have learned over the years have been repeated by you several times in your posts. I guess I just really want to say that I don't take what you say with a grain of salt. In particular, you have said that dancing is more powerful than people realize. Indeed it is. Dancing is the conduit to possession by our Orisha. It is also interesting that you would say that South America is the safe haven in the coming war in about ten years or so. Brazil is the country where the Yoruba tradition survives in its purest forms.

Please, I hope your people don't plan on trying to eradicate us. We are a living tradition where people who are initiated are pacted to bring light and goodness into the world. We have many of the same goals and they stem from living by example and bringing people into the fold. Of course, we do this only to people who come looking for it. We are not nor do we care to be missionaries. Everyone in their own time;

Just your thoughts;

RE the audition thing....I changed my mind; I dont want to talk about it. Just a strange period in my life.

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
Our Spiritual Declaration: Aristotle

Chapter 34: Aristotle


1. Aristotle (B. 384BC, Greece) picks the lock of ignorance with near-unparalleled success. His ideas are inseparable from Western thought.

2. Knowledge of abstract universals (truth, beauty, evil) arises from particular instances. Example: concept of justice is known in seeing a proper court verdict. The notion of building universal concepts from studying details of specific instances is a pillar of the scientific method.

3. Our basic perception tells us WHAT something is, not HOW or WHY it is. Studying the cause of something - the "why"- is a most important science.

4. Politics is the study of what is good, and the aim of politics is creating conditions where citizens can lead good lives. Politics also decides how many resources go toward arts and sciences.

5. Law must rule government. Head of government’s job is enforcing and protecting law.

6. Politics is divided into legislative and judicial duties.

7. What is good for a group of people is more important than what is good for an individual.

8. Aristotle divides justice into distributive justice (fairly separating goods and rewards among the deserving and needy) and corrective justice (remedying a wrong done by restoring the equality that existed before the act).

9. There are voluntary and involuntary actions. Taking something owned by another person without knowledge of ownership does not constitute a voluntarily bad act.

10. Separated into four categories are unjust acts with increasing personal responsibility. The first is an accident, an act performed with no ill intentions and the outcome was unpredictable. Second is negligence, an act lacking ill intention with a predictable outcome. Acting out of passion with full intent to harm but no forethought – something one does out of anger, lust, and emotions – is third. Fourth is premeditated unjust action. This notion is a milestone in modern justice systems.

11. Definitions of happiness differ. Some believe happiness is found in things like sex, food, and drugs, a life not much different from animals. Others think wealth leads to happiness, but money and wealth for its own sake alone cannot produce fulfillment. Wealth causes happiness only when aimed towards a greater good. People believe honor results in happiness, but this power rests in those conveying honor not those receiving it. A life of contemplation leads to a fulfilling life.

12. Good things are divided (by order of importance) into worldly goods, goods of the body, and goods of the soul.

13. Morally correct lifestyle comes through practicing and making a habit of proper behavior.

14. Avoiding pain and pursuing pleasure are two main causes of evil.

15. Many ways exist to be evil but fewer paths in being good.

16. Avoid extremes and choose the mean – what is between extremes – the Middle Path. Too little or much of any virtue is bad. Overconfidence, for example, leads to reckless behavior. Low confidence results in a coward’s life. Between these extremes, the right amount of confidence leads to courage.

17. The mean between fear and recklessness is courage. Fear is simply the anticipation of evil. Do not fear things beyond control; because if a thing is beyond control then fearing it helps in no way. If a problem’s solution exists there’s nothing to worry about. If there's no solution then worrying adds little benefit. Aristotle breaks down courage into civic courage (as in soldiers and volunteers), courage from experience, courage from emotion, courage from optimism, and courage from ignorance.

18. Self-indulgence is a worse vice than cowardice. Cowardly behavior comes naturally. Self-indulgence one goes out of the way to acquire. We must apply ourselves in being self-indulgent, and for that reason self-indulgence outweighs cowardice in terms of evil.

19. The mean between manic overspending and stinginess is generosity. Wealth is best possessed by a generous person. When viewing a generous act consider the motives behind it.

20. Between vanity and feelings of inferiority is high-mindedness, knowing self-worth.

21. The middle way of overly dominating and slothfully unmotivated is possessing the proper amount of ambition.

22. Between wrath and apathy is gentleness.

23. Friendliness rests midway of social isolation and over socializing.

24. The mean between boastful exaggerations and self-depreciation is truthfulness about one's self.

25. Halfway of acting a fool and a dull personality is having tact.

26. Between overly apologetic and defiant is modesty.

27. Science and the broader pursuit of truth divides into five categories:
pure knowledge like scientific principals; applied science, using principals of science in real-world situations; practical wisdom, knowledge of what benefits one; the ability to understand knowledge and wisdom; and finally theoretical wisdom, the ability to grasp universal ideas.

28. Virtue cannot exist without a foundation of knowledge and wisdom. Lacking knowledge results in the best intentions running afoul.

29. Negative states of mind categorize into incontinence or weak willpower, vice (sin), and extreme sin (animal-like behavior). Corresponding positive states are continence (strong willpower), virtue, and saintliness.

30. Deductive logic example: All squares are rectangles. Rectangles are four-sided. So squares are four-sided. If A=B and B=C then A=C. This is called a syllogism. Deductive reasoning starts with a general, broad idea called a premise, and from this premise we determine a more specific fact. The only way deductive reasoning fails is with a faulty premise.

31. Inductive logic begins with a specific statement and builds to a general conclusion. The cats I pick up scratch me. Therefore all future cats I pick up will scratch me. 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, ? Notice 4 is double 2 and 8 is double 4. From these specific examples a general pattern is found resulting in a predicted answer, 64. Inductive logic finds patterns and is crucial to science because observing specific phenomenon leads to understanding our environment. This logic is less sound as deductive since uncertainties exist in prediction.

32. Ten characteristics, with examples, to determine about something are its substance (planet), quantity (one), quality (habitable), relation (twice the size of Mars), place (third planet from Sun), date (today), posture (rotating around the Sun), possession (has life), action (producing an earthquake), and passivity (is being polluted).

33. All things move because something acted upon them. Trace the source of movement back to one prime mover, and this prime mover is God. God has to be never-changing since He is perfect, and changing perfection causes imperfection.

34. Everything is divided into form and matter. Matter is that from which an object is made. How matter is arranged is form. Change arises when matter alters form.

35. All objects have "actuality" and "potentiality". A piece of paper has the potentiality to be a paper airplane, but not the actuality of the plane until an outside force acts on the paper transforming it.

36. The four causes of objects are material cause, formal cause, efficient cause, and final cause. Material cause is out of what matter something (a bottle) is made (glass). Formal cause is the idea or image from which it’s made (the idea of a closed, circular hollow tube with a capped opening on top). The efficient cause is what makes our thing (a machine). The final cause is why it is made (to hold water).
