    New Bill Would Deny Schools' Funding if They Don't Comply with the RIAA

    In a ridiculous display of just how much you can get done in government if you have enough money, a new bill on the House floor states that if colleges don't police their networks and do the RIAA and MPAA's bidding as well as buy into services such as Napster for their entire student body, they'll lose all their federal funding. Yep, that means if a college doesn't want to hand over names to the RIAA they'll lose things like their Pell grants, depriving thousands of low-income students from financial aid. Wow.

    If he did that you *may* scoff at it and not understand or accept it because unless you pierce them in yourself it's not exactly something you jump to over night. Also the fact the harder one who has pierced higher veils tries to explain a later veil to one in a lower veil the reaction a vaaast majority time is
    and they go on about thier day. It is quite ironic because it is exponential in both directions.

    I think if you weren't afraid of what other people thought of you...you would grasp more.

    Pretty much sums it up, it's not exactly the kind of thing one is willing to experience, you have to want the truth no matter what the outcome may be and how it may shatter your perception of the world and your very own existence from birth to current time.

    Tell me what the experience is. A hint, a clue...something to strip some of the mystery away. Let's make a comparison here. I want to know about landing on the moon. There is no way in hell I'm ever going to do that, but I can ask someone that has. I won't get all the minutia for sure, but I'll get a decent idea. Armstrong could describe the aspect of 1/8th gravity, the granular texture of the moon and the difficulties that his pressure suit entailed. I would have an idea as to what a moon landing/walk was like. Like reading a book. Not that hard to do well enough to impart some of the experience.

    Nice try on the psychoanalysis too.

    Honestly, that is not quite the experience he means, correct me if im wrong knightmare, sort of bad analogy. It would be more of a revelation or realization of what was, what is and what will be and for what reasons frankly.

    Alright then.

    List everything you can that CANNOT be expressed in words. Or at least a small list of things that cannot be described in words well enough to give the reader a small idea of what you are trying to describe.

    Behind the first veil: There are over six billion people on the planet. Most of them live and die without having seriously contemplated anything other than what it takes to keep their lives together. Ninety percent of all humanity will live and die without having pierced the first veil.

    The first veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the first veil and find the world of politics. We will vote, be active and have an opinion. Our opinions are shaped by the physical world around us; we have a tendency to accept that government officials, network media personalities and other “experts” are voices of authority. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the second veil.

    The second veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the second veil to explore the world of history, the relationship between man and government and the meaning of self-government through constitutional and common law. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the third veil.

    The third veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the third veil to find that the resources of the world, including people, are controlled by extremely wealthy and powerful families whose incorporated old world assets have, with modern extortion strategies, become the foundation upon which the world's economy is currently indebted. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the fourth veil.

    The fourth veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the fourth veil to discover the Illuminati, Freemasonry and the other secret societies. These societies use symbols and perform ceremonies that perpetuate the generational transfers of arcane knowledge that is used to keep the ordinary people in political, economic and spiritual bondage to the oldest bloodlines on earth. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the fifth veil.

    The fifth veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the fifth veil to learn that the secret societies are so far advanced technologically that time travel and interstellar communications have no boundaries and controlling the actions of people is what their members do as offhandedly as we tell our children when they must go to bed. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the sixth veil.

    The sixth veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the sixth veil where the dragons and lizards and aliens we thought were the fictional monsters of childhood literature are real and are the controlling forces behind the secret societies. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without piercing the seventh veil.

    The seventh veil: I do not know what is behind the seventh veil. I think it is where your soul is evolved to the point you can exist on earth and be the man Ghandi was, or the woman Peace Pilgrim was-people so enlightened they brighten the world around them no matter what.

    The eighth veil? Piercing the eighth veil probably reveals God and the pure energy that is the life force in all living things-which are, I think, one and the same.

    If my math is accurate there are only about 60,000 people on the planet who have pierced the sixth veil. The irony here is too incredible: Those who are stuck behind veils one through five have little choice but to view the people who have pierced the veils beyond them as insane. With each veil pierced, exponentially shrinking numbers of increasingly enlightened people are deemed insane by exponentially increasing masses of decreasingly enlightened people.
    Adding to the irony, the harder a “sixth or better veiler” tries to explain what he is able to see to those who can't, the more insane he appears to them.

    Our enemy, the state

    Behind the first two veils we find the great majority of people on the planet. They are tools of the state: Second veilers are the gullible voters whose ignorance justify the actions of politicians who send first veilers off to die in foreign lands as cannon fodder -- their combined stations in life are to believe that the self-serving machinations of the power-elite are matters of national security worth dying for.

    Third, fourth, fifth and sixth veilers are of increasing liability to the state because of their decreasing ability to be used as tools to consolidate power and wealth of the many into the hands of the power-elite. It is common for these people to sacrifice more of their relationships with friends and family, their professional careers and personal freedom with each veil they pierce.
    Albert Jay Nock (1870-1945), author of “Our Enemy, the State” (1935), explained what happens to those who find the seventh and eighth veils: “What was the best that the state could find to do with an actual Socrates and an actual Jesus when it had them? Merely to poison one and crucify the other, for no reason but that they were too intolerably embarrassing to be allowed to live any longer.”

    That's just pathetic on so many levels.

    Greed is the worst addiction and plague. It has made countries like this weak and but a shadow of what they once were.
    Eventually it will tear everything we know apart and turn us against each other. Just look around.

    Calling all PTAs nationwide - write and inform your congressmen that they will lose your votes if they support this bill.
