Gerald Celente: Liberals Lie The Conservatives Believe ...
THINK FOR YOURSELF
"The key to change lies in a conscious recognition of the automatic tendency to obey authority. If never put to the Milgram test, almost no one would imagine themselves willing to inflict pain upon a stranger just because another stranger in a position of “authority” gave the order.
A crucial consequence of the Milgram-style studies was that after the ordeal of the experiment was over and the participants were let in on its real purpose, they overwhelmingly expressed gratitude for the experience; a life-lesson to the hidden inner-self. If the “Great War” is to be averted, the inner-self must surface before the majority blindly follow political and military leaders’ orders to inflict pain and suffering on strangers. The future is in the hands of “The 20 Percent Club” — those who, through their own efforts, have freed themselves from the death sentence of the Milgram Effect.”" Extract from The Trends Journal • Spring 2010

"Here we are in 2012. Food riots, tax protests, farmer rebellions, student revolts, squatter digins, homeless uprisings, tent cities, ghost malls, general strikes, bossnappings, kidnappings, industrial saboteurs, gang warfare, mob rule, terror. How could it have come to this? Across the nation and around the world, it was a variation of the same theme. In the United States it was called “Obamageddon,” in the rest of the world it was “The Greatest Depression.” Did no one see it coming? Yes and no. There were intelligent, informed people who saw it. But for the most part they didn’t want to believe their eyes and didn’t want to hear it. They could do the math, but too terrified to face the big, bad ugly truth, they were afraid to add up the numbers.
If you didn’t see the future through rose-colored glasses, they called you names: “Gloom and Doomer.” A purveyor of “Pessimism Porn” sniggered The New York Times, deriding Gerald Celente’s forecasts because they lacked the obligatory happy ending. The same New York Times — who sold America the Iraq war, who denied America was heading for recession until it became “official,” who relentlessly parroted the party line — like so many of “the most trusted” names in news, were themselves insidious pushers of “Optimism Opium.” And for the most part Americans bought it. They got hooked on the recovery dream. Now, in 2012, the truth can no longer be evaded. Yet, in the midst of “The Greatest Depression,” folks still cling to the myth that the bottom fell out in ’08 when the “Panic” hit, and it’s been straight downhill ever since."
