Readers of my blog will have noticed that I make a liberal and extensive use of the teachings of independent and esoteric researcher Mark Passio from whatonearthishappening.com, largely because his philosophical sensibility is compatible with my own and I have hugely benefited from his input, including on the purely personal levels of well-being and freedom from neurosis.
My discovery of Mark Passio in 2015 was the most significant event in my intellectual and spiritual developments since reading books by Hannah Arendt, Martin Heidegger and Friedrich Nietzsche and I value his work as equal if not largely superior to the aforementioned authors, at least in terms of moral, conspiratorial and esoteric enlightenments.
That being said I have sometimes taken issue with his indictment of what he calls the 'sleeping masses' in their failure to become aware of and resist the immoral conditions that are brought to bear on us through the actions of social engineers and dark occultist controllers.
In an interview on YouTube (the video of which I can no longer find and therefore cannot link up) concerning what he does, his history and what are his basic views, Passio states that a chess game is being played worldwide between these controllers and the people and yet, in their wilful ignorance, the latter fail to recognise that such a chess game is being played and that they are being hoodwinked and led to stalemate.
Similarly in his podcast series concerning the monetary system, Passio puts the blame for the nonsense of that system on the prey rather than the predators, because in failing to see through the system and resisting it, but in fact largely supporting it in their love of money, the prey are actually consenting in deed and often in word to their predation.
Passio makes no qualms about his low view of the masses, which I think would offend many a sensibility, such as when he states that people are
"ignorant, lazy cowards."In his Natural Law seminar, in a section entitled 'Know the Real Enemy', Passio goes so far as to say that the illuminati do not enslave mankind. Rather mankind enslaves the illuminati.
"Think about that for a minute", he says.The gist of his argument is that the so-called 'illuminati' are not illuminated, i.e. enlightened, particularly in their lack of care for others and heart consciousness, and that much rather it is mankind itself that enslaves the true 'illuminati', genuinely moral individuals, by maintaining and even supporting in their wilful ignorance the conditions of slavery that affect everyone.
An example of this is voters electing a 'leader' to office and thus giving their consent to political representation and being ruled, which decision will affect the lives of those who do not wish to be re-presented nor ruled from on high.
For it is true that however free from mind control you happen to be, there are large scale conditions such as taxation and the monetary system which are extraneous to your personal will and yet still largely have to comply with, since independent of you and maintained as long as a critical mass does not resist and unmake them.
For we do depend on others and co-exist with them, no man being an island and completely self-sufficient.
The world in whatever shape it happens to take precedes us - the world existed before we were born - and will outlive us after our death and that includes its dominant economic, cultural and social structures.
These dominant structures are, in Passio's opinion, largely immoral and although he gives credit to nurture, i.e. environmental factors, over nature, i.e. genetic factors, in shaping the behaviours of individuals, he still believes that it is wilful and therefore blameworthy ignorance (as opposed to what he calls blameless 'nescience') that stops the majority of people from challenging those structures.
In that respect and others, Passio regularly expresses admiration and a lack of hatred for what he calls the 'sorcerers of consciousness' that are the elite controllers, particularly in terms of their unity of spirit and purpose which contrasts with the division, external and internal, present in the mass of humanity.
Apart from the obvious point that it is easier to be 'unified' when devoid of an emotional centre and being so few in number, the chess game analogy that Passio used in his YouTube interview should be scrutinised, which is what I did in my post Refusing to Play the Chess Game.
The point I wish to reiterate and clarify here is that no one apart from these elite controllers ever signed up to this 'chess game', i.e. the chess game being forced upon us from above, and in that respect, having not consented to enter the chess game, we have no obligation to play it and therefore resist the elite's strategic moves. We are entitled to ignore it, even should we suffer as a result.
Moreover, on top of being a one sided chess game, psychopaths are not known for 'playing by the rules' - which is arguably how they wind up having so much worldly power - and as the habits of legislators demonstrate, will make the rules up as they go along and even likely rearrange the pieces on the chess board (a form of gas lighting) while we, the people, are not looking, acting as these elitists do in secret.
Yet, to his credit, Passio is consistent enough in his evaluations to see that these elite controllers would not be able to manifest as much evil in the world were it not for what he calls 'the cult of ultimate evil': order following. Whence his utter contempt and disregard for such entrenched institutions as the military and the police, the so-called 'dogs' of government.
Indeed it was people 'just following orders' who enabled high Nazi officials to manifest such horrifying things as racial discrimination, genocide and wars of aggression and Howard Zinn was right in stating that civil obedience is the problem, not civil disobedience. For
"obedience is to do what you're told regardless of what is right"(and morality to do what is right regardless of what you're told.)
This is the main and rare area in which I part company with Passio. You are perfectly within your rights to ignore the machinations of conspirators as exposed in conspiracy literature and, provided you do not harm other sentient beings (which I do as a meat eater), are not immoral in your enforced and involuntary compliance with immoral large scale conditions, since you did not sign up to them and yet are not free from them because of their large scale and entrenched nature.
In short, not being an activist and not caring does not make you immoral but it is true that being an activist can lend credibility to your political positioning, at least if done intelligently and ethically.
