Caption Open Letter to the Medical Practitioners of America By Zahir Ebrahim – What’s wrong with this emergency medical response scene broadcast live worldwide from Boston marathon finish line by Fox News on April 15, 2013?
Does this image depict a real medical response to you by America’s finest EMS and EMT in the principal City of Medicine in the United States of America? Or, does it appear to be an Edward Bernays’ special; a staged production by actors to extract an emotional response from the worldwide audiences to continue to ‘United we Stand’ them in America’s ‘War on Terror’?
I ask the medical, emergency, fire, and ambulance professionals: Which modern city’s EMS in any developed nation in the world would transport a bomb blast victim in the condition shown in the collage below in that precarious fashion, unsecured and sitting up-right on a wheelchair, instead of securely strapped in a gurney when ambulances and gurneys are at hand, let alone in the most advanced superpower’s most advanced medical city in the world?
An incompetent EMS in Boston, or actors making their entrances and exits in a planned mass casualty event drill that went live unbeknownst to them?
Why the pathetic silence watching staged acts of terror from the sidelines as the Good Americans and Good citizens of the world while the superpower nation itself rapidly descends into a super-militarized police-state on the pretext of fighting that staged terror across the globe?
Documenting the WMD – Weapons of Mass Deception – for a Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal someday when that same silence will once again be judged to be the banality of evil that principally enabled the crimes against humanity documented by Project Humanbeingsfirst and others!

You are evidently intrigued by the perspective change to read this far!
Perhaps you are already experiencing some cognitive dissonance?
The world does look a bit different from the predatory eyes of the tom cat does it not? What should one believe if reality comes so wrapped in layers upon layers of make-beliefs, half-truths, quarter-truths, and just cold lies which run deeper than the proverbial rabbit hole?
Machiavellian social engineering surrounds modernity in an endless sea of half truths, quarter truths, and outright lies, all of which come wrapped in veneers of “beliefs (1) thought to be true (although not necessarily known to be true with certainty), and (2) shared in common within the relevant political community”, such that the public is easily mobilized to “United We Stand” with their respective leaders and opinion-makers on any matter.
In such an age of universal deceit, ferreting out the whole truth about any matter is a “revolutionary act”.
Although, George Orwell is reputed to have stated it differently: “In an age of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” I believe my version trumps the prescient novelist’s.
One has to learn the truth before one can tell it. Duh!
This is the ultimate information age – where everything the public is made to believe is false! It is also the ultimate age of liberty – getting the people to love their own servitude! During the staging process of achieving full scientific dictatorship of the planet, its public is kept content merely lip-synching songs of justice and revolution alongside staged productions of Les Miserables, and for the church-temple-mosque going masses of humanity, from their favorite books of hymns and elegies! The freedom to sing whatever one wants is the temporary definition of freedom in the internet age, until Orwell’s 11th edition Newspeak becomes the lingua franca of the world’s public when even lip synching is legislated to be a universal thought crime. None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free! (Goethe)
Mankind today is perched on the cusp of a global scientific dictatorship; a transformation so profound that it has only become possible in our scientific modernity to practicably achieve the zeitgeist that Plato visualized for the unwashed masses in his seminal work The Republic 2500 years ago. Plato gave a thought experiment in his famous Simile of the Cave for full spectrum perception management of the public mind from cradle to grave. And he argued that it would be next to impossible to break through that full spectrum web of control once it was achieved by villainous stewards – for people would simply not believe it even if the shocking truth was revealed to them.
Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski, the national security advisor to president Jimmy Carter 1976-1980, who relished in “giving to the USSR its Vietnam war” in Muslim blood, in his own seminal work titled Between Two Ages, presaged in 1970 that very dystopia when he self-servingly observed as the henchman of the same dystopic oligarchy:
“Life seems to lack cohesion as environment rapidly alters and human beings become increasingly manipulable and malleable. Everything seems more transitory and temporary: external reality more fluid than solid, the human being more synthetic than authentic. Even our senses perceive an entirely novel “reality”—one of our own making but nevertheless, in terms of our sensations, quite “real.” More important, there is already widespread concern about the possibility of biological and chemical tampering with what has until now been considered the immutable essence of man. Human conduct, some argue, can be predetermined and subjected to deliberate control. Man is increasingly acquiring the capacity to determine the sex of his children, to affect through drugs the extent of their intelligence, and to modify and control their personalities. Speaking of a future at most only decades away, an experimenter in intelligence control asserted, ‘I foresee the time when we shall have the means and therefore, inevitably, the temptation to manipulate the behaviour and intellectual functioning of all the people through environmental and biochemical manipulation of the brain.’” (Between Two Ages, Zbigniew Brzezinski, 1970, pg. 12)
“Another threat, less overt but no less basic, confronts liberal democracy. More directly linked to the impact of technology, it involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled and directed society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite whose claim to political power would rest on allegedly superior scientific know-how. Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control.” (Ibid. pg. 97)
We are nearly there today, for the first time in the history of man, on a global planet-wide scale. Download and Read Brzezinski’s book to learn what the oligarchy themselves write openly — knowing fully well that you have been trained to stay busy amusing yourselves when not struggling for bread and shelter, and won’t bother reading what they write in plain-sight, never mind do anything about it!
Just one more thing.
What’s to be done?
Empiricism lamentably betrays that knowledge does not automatically lead to a change in behavior or mind-set. Only the courage of one’s convictions does. So even if you figured out reality at the other end of the rabbit hole – then what of it? You can read this website all day long, listen to endless hours of talks and lectures on the internet with rapt attention, seek wise counsel from your chieftains, pontiffs and holy books, and it will not change your behavior one bit. The mastery over the public’s banality of evil is evidently complete when: “The economic well-being of the nation depends on the presence of a large number of men who are content to labor hard all day long. Because men are naturally lazy they will not work unless forced by necessity to do so.” (Bernard de Mandeville, The Fable of the Bees, 1705). Your necessity to pay your daily bills has ensured your silence and your acquiescence. However, empiricism also betrays that the tickling of self-preservation will almost always instinctually lead to an immediate change in behavior! Unless of course one is too invested in enjoying one’s own servitude – like this brilliant fellow who clearly only lacks the courage of his own convictions and not knowledge of the dystopia he is helping to create.
Nevertheless, hope springs eternal that this gestalt shift in perspective will enable you to fully perceive the world from the predatory eyes of the tom cat eyeing its prey. You are the next meal in the fishbowl! My very first piece of public writing in April 2003 stated that to be the obvious fact of the matter. This Job advertisement in December 2011 by the US Military and NDAA 1031 validate it – if nothing else since 9/11 has done it for you. Nothing ever alters the tom cat’s predatory instincts just because its prey refuses to recognize it.
The predator is always waiting, watching, scheming, conniving…. before pouncing – the inveterate “hectoring hegemon”! And it’s done with the most devilishly cunning Hegelian Dialectics that simply run circles around the prey alternately shocking and exhausting it into accepting what’s planned for it. The only escape from its death-jaws is for its preys to change their behavior pattern perspicaciously BEFORE it is a fait accompli. Ex post facto, one can narrate to one’s heart’s content – as gallant observers are doing today for NDAA 1031!
But it was already presaged in Chapter-5 way back in 2003! Had sagacious narrators of today paid even an iota of attention to such forensic examination of reality back then in the early stages of “imperial mobilization”, instead of ‘United We Stand’ to bomb Muslim nations or in mindless dissent, they wouldn’t be vacuously narrating now!
Looking ahead, that future reality of “history’s actors” is being engineered today… and that reality is World Order, a one-world government! This entire song and dance choreography is just to motivate mankind to get it there as quickly as possible. The oligarchy can’t wait no more – they have already waited too damn long planning for this transformation! They just love crises – and they engineer them on demand to accelerate their choreography. So now you know – what you gonna do about it? Occupy? The financial oligarchy has crafted it themselves to create the crisis they need for the next stage of police state…. the sly predator cornering its prey has exactly anticipated all its typical behavior patterns. Witness British essayist and Fabian scholar of the Anglo-Saxon oligarchy, H. G. Wells, proclaim it openly in his book New World Order:
“There will be no day of days then when a new world order comes into being. Step by step and here and there it will arrive, and even as it comes into being it will develop fresh perspectives, discover unsuspected problems and go on to new adventures. No man, no group of men, will ever be singled out as its father or founder. For its maker will be not this man nor that man nor any man but Man, that being who is in some measure in every one of us. World order will be, like science, like most inventions, a social product, an innumerable number of personalities will have lived fine lives, pouring their best into the collective achievement. …
Nor does it alter the fact that even when the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it becomes an efficient and beneficent world system.
Countless people, from maharajas to millionaires and from pukkha sahibs to pretty ladies, will hate the new world order, be rendered unhappy by the frustration of their passions and ambitions through its advent and will die protesting against it.
When we attempt to estimate its promise we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people.” (New World Order – H. G. Wells, 1940, Ch. 12, WORLD ORDER IN BEING)
The only pragmatic escape from the death-jaws of such predatory instincts of the ubermensch, is for the victims to collectively, in large numbers, and atypically, change their own behavior patterns from what’s already been anticipated: FROM abject indifference and enjoying their own servitude, TO sagacious preemptive self-defense under mutually beneficial full spectrum alliances – BEFORE it is fait accompli. I.e., before it all becomes history; a done deal!
This can only be accomplished at national levels coordinated globally.
Brave nations, unwilling to accept the primacy of the internationalist sociopaths, breaking through the stifling web of international controls by effectively coordinating their global resistance under uncompromisingly strong national and moral leadership, to survive the Grand Chessboard.
Can it be done?
and not when the most benevolent minds on earth invent specious Doctrine of Neutrality to preserve their own narrow power-base while enjoying knighthood and other social benefits from the empire du jour whom they tacitly serve by echoing its narratives ;
and not when virtually everything the public mind is led to believe is false or grossly distorted – generation after generation ;
and last but not least, not when only Ostriches roam, happy-happy in false hope and voluntary servitude!
Welcome to the Dawn of the New Age.
It will ultimately still only collapse, like the proverbial bubble, under the weightlessness of its own ambition. The Fourth Reich, the ambition of all predators from time immemorial, will eventually also go the way of the Pharaohs. But surely not until after the price of villainy has been paid in spades by the world for the construction of their ultimate fantasy, the one-world government.
So why am I expending all this energy on a cause that is evidently lost at this time?
“Why?”, retorted Captain Rhet Butler, the hedonistic buccaneer and war-profiteer, to the desperate Mrs. Hamilton in the iconic American movie Gone with the Wind, as he ungallantly abandoned his unrequited love in the middle of the road to belatedly go join the Confederate Army after Atlanta had been burned to the ground by the Northern soldiers, and the South had already lost its Old World Order to the new opportunities for profit and plunder by the Carpetbaggers of the North in the up-building of the destroyed Southern civilization:
“maybe it’s because I have always had a weakness for lost causes once they are really lost.”
Only thespians playing newly acquired conscience have a weakness for lost causes once they are really lost. That sentiment is just a tongue-in-cheek cinematic comeuppance to the selfish but equally indomitable Mrs. Hamilton; hardly the cause to give even a mild indigestion to the sociopathic hectoring hegemons let alone to light the fire of resistance in the mind of man!
That’s not it!
When the Biblical Prophet Abraham (in the Orientalist’s spelling) was being thrown into the fire by the tyrannical ruler Nimrod, all creation was in tremendous angst. Even stones spoke out against the injustice of the tyrant. Every moral creature endeavored to the rescue of the Prophet to put out the fire. A tiny songbird picked a droplet of water in its minuscule beak and started to fly over to the fire.
An Angel asked the little songbird:
“Surely you are not going to put out the fire with that droplet(!);
and surely the high flames will consume you!
What do you think you are doing, little Don Quixote?”
The tiny songbird replied:
“yes, you are right; I know that my tiny droplet will not save the Great Prophet…
But I bring to the endeavor of standing up to this tyranny whatever I am capable of, and this hopelessly tiny droplet is all I am capable of.”
