1. a division or contrast between two things that are or are represented as being opposed or entirely different. – google
There are many dichotomies in this world of duality. Night and day. Smooth and rough. Pleasure and pain. But perhaps the most important dichotomy of all is the contrast between truth and lies, for if you cannot discern the one from the other, you will quickly become drowned in a sea of lies, for it’s lies that fill this fallen world, bottom to brim.
Have you ever thought about the meaning of color? Do you think color is void of meaning, only useful as a tool of decoration? Or have you considered it possible that the spectrum of visible light might be used in a language all its own, like letters in the alphabet or words in a sentence?
To some, you can be assured that colors are a language of their own, and do convey specific meanings when used as symbols of an occult and secretive language, ancient in origin but modern in use.
On the surface, color is an expression of light, and is therefore a vehicle of energy of a specific strength or vibration. As energy, color has the ability to incur a reaction in the witness. It can soothe, or excite. It can summons a base response in the viewer, or elicit an intellectual reaction. When combined with other colors, more complex effects can be achieved. Color is most definitely a tool of language, and can be used in skilled hands to convey very specific messages.
Which brings us directly to red and blue. What is it about those colors in this land, the good ol’ USA? Why have they become so predominate?
If we were to look at those colors, it would be quite easy to come up with a few examples of common associations they have with the natural world, and fortunately for us here, a few common associations are all we will need to recognize the intended meanings these colors have for those who use them to influence the minds of their intended (and oblivious) audience.
Blue Common associations with the color blue: coolness, water, ice.
Red Common associations: heat, fire, lava. So right there, at the base level, we have what could be the original dichotomy, the first pair of two pairs of elements: fire & ice, earth & heaven (wind). No doubt, early in human history, the battle between heat and cold must have always been heavy on our consciousness because of the central role it played in our survival. That didn’t escape the notice of the modern day sorcerers who sculpt the language that influences the masses not only in their day to day buying decisions, but in their political allegiances as well.
Color is well known to be used as an influential tool in the marketing world, but widely ignored in the important role it plays in it’s association with the two party system that defines American politics.
Are You Red or Blue?
Now more than ever these two colors are being splashed across our television screens every time a major election looms. It’s almost as if each election is serving as a re-conditioning therapy for the masses, a chance for the elite to use their favorite media to ingrain and reinforce these color associations into the minds of the people – without their conscious knowledge nor approval, of course. Blue = Democrat, Red=Republican. Get it? Got it? Good!
It’s laughably simplistic, even childish, but in truth this is the mental level most Americans are operating on when they engage in this fallacious travesty of what is sold as a true choice between supposedly oppositional political parties. I say that, because what is being sold here in American politics is not a true choice between opposites, but rather a choice between what are essentially identical outcomes – which is no choice at all.
When the media sorcerers use these colors during each major election to reinforce their associations with the two political parties, they are telling you this: “These parties are different, they are diametrically opposed – they are as different as fire is from ice.”
And to that claim, I say “bullshit.”
These two parties are different only in the colors and symbols and window dressings they use. Red/Blue. Elephant/Donkey. Conservative/Liberal. In practice, they are identical.
Don’t believe it? Then how is it possible that the same agenda is moved forward regardless of which party is in control of the House, or Senate, or Executive Branch over time?
What agenda am I talking about? Well, in risk of oversimplification, let’s just say the agenda of more and more political power wielded in the hands of the oligarchs, and less and less power for the people.
Proof of this can be found in the numbers and types of laws passed in recent times, but in no law can this claim be borne out as fully as the passing of the Patriot Act. No law in recent times has done more to kill the former nature of a once-great land than the passing of this grievous and sinister body of laws. And there was virtually no debate between our supposed political guardians – the Democrats and Republicans.
Oh no, they were both right on board with this new legislation, legislation which was mysteriously drafted overnight (actually 20 days – but for a document of this size – 342 pages – that’s essentially overnight). Legislation which, apparently, no one even read:
I think it is appropriate to comment on the process by which the bill is coming to us. This is not the bill that was reported and deliberated on in the Committee on the Judiciary. It came to us late on the floor. No one has really had an opportunity to look at the bill to see what is in it since we have been out of our offices. – Rep. Bobby Scott
This Law is based on the faulty assumption that safety must come at the expense of civil liberties. The USA Patriot Act gives law enforcement agencies nationwide extraordinary new powers unchecked by meaningful judicial review. – Laura W. Murphy, Director of ACLU’s Washington National Office
According to the same article cited above, the Patriot Act lead to the following troubling provisions:
• Allow for indefinite detention of non-citizens who are not terrorists on minor visa violations if they cannot be deported because they are stateless, their country of origin refuses to accept them or because they would face torture in their country of origin.
• Minimize judicial supervision of federal telephone and Internet surveillance by law enforcement authorities.
• Expand the ability of the government to conduct secret searches.
• Give the Attorney General and the Secretary of State the power to designate domestic groups as terrorist organizations and deport any non-citizen who belongs to them.
• Grant the FBI broad access to sensitive business records about individuals without having to show evidence of a crime.
• Lead to large-scale investigations of American citizens for “intelligence” purposes.
Wow – looks to me like a terrific blow to the the freedoms and liberties of all, and a huge step forward for the oligarchs in seizing dictatorial powers. If you think that “dictatorial” is going a little too far, don’t forget that it was the Patriot Act and it’s changes that inspired Naomi Wolf to write her book, The End of America:
Wolf asserts in The End of America that democracies are overthrown by dictatorships employing a “playbook” that allows them to execute a “fascist shift” against the will of the populace. She proceeds to argue that such a “shift” is underway in America, and builds her thesis on a lengthy list of analogies between the history of fascist and totalitarian regimes and events in contemporary America. – The Atlantic
I am no political analyst, but it seems to me that if such legislation as this, which strips US citizens of much of their constitutional protections, is passed unanimously by supposedly contesting parties – both of which claim to desire to “defend” those constitutional protections, then by golly, I do believe I smell a rat in this mix.
And that rat has a history that is traceable through time. It is a rat that never goes away, although it has been the subject of numerous eradication attempts. It is a rat that is always scheming and plotting over how it may gain an upper hand over those who always outnumber it. It is a rat that has come out of two main Masonic Lodges – the Red Lodge and the Blue. This is the origin, nature, and affiliation of our not-so-benevolent benefactors called the Oligarchs, or rather, the rats we smell in our pantry.
And when you get pulled over the next time by a “law enforcer” – steadfast friend of the Oligarchs who pay his wage – flashing his hypnotic reds and blues in your eyes to disorient you, you might just want to take a moment to reflect on what the origin and meaning of those colors are, and what kind of big lie is about to be perpetrated upon you in the next few minutes, for those that serve the red and blue are not there to be of service to YOU!
