The Death of Deprivation: How wrenchBiscuit Saved the World
Anatomy of a Nightmare
Today, we can look around us and see the ugliness of mindless,heartless, and souless men manifested throughout the world. Here are some of the highlights:
• Children and teenagers spend their days idolizing entertainers, sports figures, and celebrities who are as worthless as they are themselves.
• Car manufacturers continue to produce a product that claims the lives of over 40,000 people in the United States annually; inflicting catastrophic injury upon tens of thousands more, while the insurance industry continues to profit from the misery.
• The citizen must buy bottled water, or use expensive water filters because industry and agriculture have polluted the ground water. In many places even the air is not fit to breath, and has become toxic. The United States generates approximately 230 million tons of "trash" annually. In many areas landfills have contaminated the groundwater.
• The citizen has been discouraged from growing and producing his/her own food, and has been herded to the supermarkets to buy and consume processed food filled with unhealthy additives that can cause sickness, cancer, and death.
• The United States is the world's leader in incarceration, with 2.2 million people currently in the nation's prisons or jails. This is a 500% increase over the past thirty years. In spite of this, 17.7 million women in the US have been the victim of a rape or attempted rape at some point in their lives. According to the U.S. Department of Justice's National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS)--there is an average of 293,066 victims (age 12 or older) of rape and sexual assault each year. Furthermore, the US homicide rate, is among the highest in the industrialized world. There were 13,716 homicides in the United States in 2013. In 2014 over 14,000 homicides were reported.
• According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of people living in poverty in 2012 (46.5 million) was the largest number seen in the 54 years for which poverty estimates have been published. In 2013, 45.3 million people lived in poverty. The poverty rate for 2013 was 14.5%.
• In the U.S., more than 3.5 million people experience homelessness each year. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimates that 49,933 veterans are homeless on any given night.
• According to a study conducted in April 2014, the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy concluded that 32 million adults in the U.S. can't read. That's 14 percent of the population. 21 percent of adults in the U.S. read below a 5th grade level, and 19 percent of high school graduates can't read. It's safe to assume that 75% of Americans don't know what state Boise Idaho is in.
All of the presidents, the great industrialists, the inventors and the entrepenuers who have helped to perpetuate this nightmare have either been the pawns, or the architects of this evil system. It is a testament to the perverse nature of modern man that so many would take pride in a paradise that was colonized by greedy capitalists, and then turned into a cesspool!
The Death of Deprivation
Yes, we are truly living in a nightmare. It has been proven that the problems I have highlighted cannot be solved with money, law enforcement, or political rhetoric. We are standing on a broken wheel that cannot be mended. But I have discovered a solution to this nightmare, and it is as simple as a toothpick, as revolutionary as the wheel, and as indisputable as the Law of Gravity. I have named this solutuon: The Death of Deprivation. Death and Deprivation are defined as follows:
Deprivation: the damaging lack of material benefits considered to be basic necessities in a society.
Death (common definition) : the total and permanent cessation of all the vital functions of an organism.
In order to better clarify my meaning, I have abandoned the common definition of death and created the following, more comprehensive definition:
Death: a permanent, irreversible, disconnect from a mental, physical, socio-political or spiritual condition.
We can clearly see that deprivation is a disconnect from the material world, and in a very real sense a form of death. Thus, the term "The Death of Deprivation" is an appropriate label for my solution. The reader must also understand that although "deprivation" is commonly used to define a negative human condition, I am using it as a positive in this particular context.
We cannot solve the problems of the world through a ballot box, as that is only trickery. And we cannot solve these problems through an armed revolt. Compared to the forces of the governments of the world, the proletariat has been disarmed, and is powerless in the context of military strength. Such an attempt would be disastrous, and only help evil world governments by giving them a good excuse to thin out the herd. There is only one solution available, and I offer it to you now.
We, the proletariat, must be willing to suffer the Death of Deprivation.
We must disconnect from the world if we are to save it. In this kind of death there is a power, and it is the only power that is strong enough to destroy the current world system; an evil system that has enslaved the entire human race through an addiction to materialism.
Yes, I have coined a new phrase and provided a new definition, but the revolutionary idea I am suggesting is nothing new. I have simply approached an old idea from a new perspective; remixed and re-packaged.
Proof of the Power
Yes, throughout the historical record there is proof in the power of The Death of Deprivation. Those who have accepted this death have performed great works in the world. This proof can be found in the teachings of Jesus, the life of Nelson Mandela,and many others. I will briefly explore Jesus and Mandela.
Jesus and The Death of Deprivation
In Matthew 4:8-11
Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him
all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these
things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”
Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall
worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ Then the devil left
Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.
First of all, we must understand what is meant by "kingdoms of the world". Satan was not offering Jesus brick, stone, and mortar. Nor was he offering the land upon which the kingdoms were built; the rivers, streams, mountains and oceans around them. Satan was offering the world that can only exist in the mind of a man. He was offering money and great wealth. Satan was offering wine, women, and song. Satan was offering political power. Satan was offering selfish gratification. But Jesus denied Satan. Jesus had already "disconnected" from the world. Jesus had already accepted The Death of Deprivation over desire, and so was no longer bound by comfort,convenience, and carnal pleasure. Thus, he could not be manipulated or controlled.
Mandela and The Death of Deprivation
When we examine the life of Nelson Mandela, we see that he was an intelligent, resourceful,and educated man. He could have left South Africa and started a business or career in a friendlier, less hostile climate. But instead of hanging out at a yacht club for 27 years and enjoying expensive champagne and fine cuisine, he chose to sit in a South African prison. Yes, in a manner of speaking, it was his choice, as he was very well aware from the beginning of his political career that he might be assassinated or imprisoned. But Nelson Mandela had disconnected from the world. Nelson Mandela had accepted The Death of Deprivation, and so this gave him the power and the courage to suffer the 24/7 hell of a South African prison for nearly three decades. He could not have walked down that terrible road had he not first been able to disconnect, and let go of the world.
It's All About You
Today, a vast majority of humans do not live for the enrichment of each other, but only for themselves. Recently, I have been reminded that many do not even care about the condition of their own family members. The pursuit of material possessions has become our primary form of recreation. The proliferation of multi-million dollar shopping malls across the United States provides clear evidence of this fact. More evidence is provided by the Christmas Holiday. At the end of each year the perverse ritual of Christmas fills the greedy pockets of commercial interests. During the Christmas season, the working class, and the very poor who can barely afford to pay their monthly bills, are pressured into spending way beyond their means. Some,those who cannot afford the price of admission, will even steal in order to keep up with the Jones's. In a truly civilized world, helping those in need would be the most popular form of recreation.Putting a smile on someone's face would have a higher priority than putting on a pair of new shoes that we really don't need.
It is not necessary for us to wait for a great leader to come along and lead us to the promised land. And as I have already indicated, there is no need for us to go to a ballot box. After over 200 years of lies and government corruption, anyone can see that the ballot box is little more than window dressing for the dog and pony show. It is foolish to think that anyone could change a corrupt system by working within that corrupt system. A man doesn't get rid of termites or cockroaches by lying down with them. Nor does he try to reason with them, since the greedy and the righteous do not speak the same language. Finally, a man who accepts the title and rewards of an evil system is beholding to it. Thus, in this manner we will never see a significant change in the world.
Swallow these words before you can spit them out! We must in solidarity disconnect ourselves from the comfort and conveniences that have been made available to us by an evil, and corrupt system. We must realize that we are not born consumers, and that we have been purposely addicted to materialism, and enslaved by the very system that claims to have set us free!. The world of men is only as real as we allow it to be. It is our love of the world, and our addiction to materialism, convenience, and comfort that has bound us. These are the things that allow evil men to control our lives,and and that will lay waste to future generations.
Leaving The Imaginary World
I have loved the imaginary material world of men as much as anyone. But in early 2008, my love affair was about to end. A white woman who was a regular customer at a Tiki Bar where I performed music called me and said that she had a dream, and that she needed to meet with me to explain what she had seen. At our meeting she explained that in her dream she saw what she described as "Indian" spirits sitting around a large fire. She said that they were speaking my name, and that although she knew it was my name, she had never heard the name before, nor could she remember during her recollection exactly what the name was. But she said that somehow she knew that the name belonged to me.
She explained that she had felt an urgent need to tell me of this dream, as if she had been instructed to do so. She was quite puzzled by the whole affair, and seemed nervous, or uncomfortable. I had some years earlier experienced a similar event concerning a visitation by my mother who had recently died..I can only conclude that a third party is included as verification. Otherwise, an individual may dismiss the event as only a dream, a hallucination, or the result of an over-active imagination.
Over the course of the next few months, I experienced the same dream, or vision on several occasions. It was just as the woman had described, only with more detail. The men that I could see were all elders. I understood that they wanted me there, but they did not confront me in a direct, or forceful manner. It seemed as if they were treating me like a group of men might treat a small child in their midst; being very careful not to frighten the child. I also recall feeling like someone who has been given a strong drug prior to an operation. Although they were not looking at me directly, it seemed as though they were putting thoughts in my mind. I could not read or interpret these thoughts at that time, and they entered into me as digital packets of information might be downloaded into a computer. In hindsight, it was if I were being programmed by these spirit beings. In May of 2008 my life began to unravel. I began to think unfamiliar thoughts, and I began to do things that were out of character. At the beginning of my downward spiral, I was completely unaware that there was any connection between my vision and the destructive events that were tearing my life apart.
Several years passed before I was able to make sense of what was happening to my life. Like many who have experienced a particular trauma, my memory of the vision became clearer with the passage of time, and I began to understand bits and pieces of what was happening to me. After nearly 8 years, I now understand that it was all about disconnecting myself from the world. I was not strong enough to do it on my own. Without the intervention of the spirit council, I would not have set my foot on this particular path, and I would most likely still be wasting my time in the imaginary world of men; womanizing, drinking, singing in Tiki Bars, and occasionally writing and recording a song. In other words, I would still be happy. As it stands, I fear that I will never know such happiness as I did before. It is a bittersweet revelation, because my unhappiness has been responsible for some of my best work. I have written many songs and essays since the intervention of the council, especially during the last five years. I am proud of my work, and it has been a great pleasure to create it. My work is strong, and it provides tangible proof that there is power in The Death of Deprivation.
I Accept The Suffering
But let the whole truth be known. Each day I am now filled with a clarity that often reveals more than I can bear; a truth that delivers an emotional pain that penetrates even unto my very soul. There are days when I pray that my heart will stop beating, so that I can return to the light that leads to my home; where I will once again pick the sweet corn; the sweet corn my father planted in two rows, from one end of the field to the other; where my mother will make us a cool drink of tea and lemon, and then send us to the edge of the forest to gather the Polk for her delicious salad. I will ask my brother why he was murdered in Portland, and he will ask me why I chose to die before my time. A whirlwind will rise up out of the south and we will fall down laughing together upon the soft clover, only to leap from our bodies and mingle with the black crows that sit high upon the wire.
But happiness is overrated, and happiness is for little children. Once in this lifetime I was a child, and I was very happy, as my parents made my happiness their priority. But the world has been enslaved by evil men, and the entities that lurk behind them. As men, we cannot allow ourselves to be herded together like sheep; to behave like cowards while pretending to be free. I am only free because I have chosen The Death of Deprivation over servitude. Yes, by disconnecting myself from the world I have traded happiness for misery, But through this misery I have not only completed many great works, but I have found a path that leads to the salvation of mankind. As a young man, my only desire was to write the music,to lie down with a woman, and to sing my songs, but today I have placed this message in a bottle, and in so doing I have saved the world.
I am aware that many will scoff at my assertion,or even find it amusing, but for those of you who have the will, the intelligence, and the heart to follow this path to freedom, I can only remind that ignorant, useless, and jealous men have never been a scarce commodity. They have nothing to offer but an overactive libido, and a pedestrian world view. They are great liars and deceivers, and many are even paid by the government to challenge and ridicule anyone who speaks out against them. But I have made it very easy for the reader to measure the weight of my words and the depth of my character, as many of my works have been posted online. Furthermore, anyone who sincerely accepts The Death of Deprivation will soon begin to see the results in their own life. And as I have told you here, you will be empowered and torn down at the same time. You will produce great works but you will also suffer for it. Eventually, when enough of you have disconnected from the world, the power of an evil ruling elite will start to fade, because they are like vampires and parasites who can only survive by sucking the blood of the poor and the working class. They can only survive if you continue to feed them through your addiction to materialism, comfort, and convenience.
What To Expect
If you accept the Death of Deprivation, and disconnect yourself from the world, it is important that you do not have unrealistic expectations, as this will only make you weak, and unable to continue. First of all, there is no turning back. Remember the definition:
Death: a permanent, irreversible, disconnect from a mental, physical, socio-political or spiritual condition.
As you begin to disconnect yourself from the imaginary world of men, you will start to see and interpret the world in a different manner. You will begin to clearly see the deceptions that before were hidden from you. Consequently, this will cause you a certain amount of emotional pain. But once a truth is revealed it can never be forgotten. Over time it will become difficult for you to converse with, and socialize with friends,relatives,and acquaintances, as they will begin to appear as cackling hens, or talking monkeys. Ironically, your effort to save mankind will most likely lead you to a misanthropic perspective. For me, this was unavoidable.
You should also understand that no one is going to have a parade in your honor. Understand that you may find yourself hungry, destitute, and alone, walking in the rain. Understand that you will experience fear,and will perhaps become desperate. You will reach out for help, but the whole world will turn it's back on you. They will even laugh, and make jokes about you. Many will even hate you for shining a light on their weakness and cowardice. And last but not least, understand that even those who pretend to be on your side may treat you like the blind man who was helped halfway across the street, and then left standing in the middle of a busy intersection.
Furthermore, I have mentioned Jesus and Mandela. Do not forget that Jesus is said to have been the Son of God, and the King of Kings, yet he was ridiculed,tortured, and crucified by the very people he came to save. Nelson Mandela was a famous celebrity before his death, but for 27 years the entire world did little to help him, or to ease his torment. In a world that allowed these great men to be treated with such cruelty and indifference, we cannot expect that you or I will be treated any better. Finally, do not expect that your efforts to free the world from tyranny will ever be recognized by men. But understand that men do not command the universe, nor do they truly rule the world. Rest assured, our works will be known by that which has created us, and those created above us. And it will be written in a book, whether we stood up, shouted out loud, and moved against this evil, or whether we turned on our knees, and quietly crawled away.
