You Can't Trust The Machine by Merwin

Updated on April 29, 2015

We got a lot of "machines"

Machines... they make our life easier and there is machinery for virtually every task, design to gratify all of our "instant" desires, and, our desires have grown to expect instant results.

We have instant stuff to satisfy our need for immediacy... instant pudding, instant oats, we don't want to wait for our TV's to warm up and, we get impatient with our computers when they don't provide the world's libraries to our PC screens fast enough.

With all these instant expectations being fulfilled... it it any wonder that we have similar expectations of our machinery that governs us?

I mean we don't want taxation, but, we want programs to assist us in keeping our society in good overall health. By its overall health, I refer to every aspect... from the economy to education, and all things in between. We have needs and we expect the machinery of government to supply solutions that are convenient without the inconvenience of burdensome costs.

The world system is a system of interrelated mechanisms or machines working independently, but growing together as they become more aligned with one another in purpose and philosophy. Each machine, can be described as having its own "world" and it is becoming increasingly clear that they are all quickly aligning themselves to become separate components of a larger global machine.

Here is the difficulty.

The machine... in its parts or together, has never had any intention of serving the needs of those governed. Certainly individuals in the lower ranks may have altruistic intentions, but they are not the decision makers... they are simply pawns. Those that are the underwriters, architects, and decisive movers and shakers use the pawns that represent themselves as public servants to generate the desired public opinion and create a following.

The machines are under the control of the various centralized banks around the world. Money is nothing more to them than that which keeps the gears of their machinery lubricated, and fuel for its operation. And the gears of their machinery is politics.

So what does a machine do?

Any machine... metaphoric or actual, provides the user with a lot more power than they would have had with their bare hands.

A big machine placed in a big vehicle, may move very big things very quickly. So quickly and so impressively in fact, that one may forget entirely that there are "concerns" at work directing its movements.

Such is the case with Centralized Banking. They have gotten us all amazed with the power of their new world order, and, hopeful about the possible peace and harmony and economic stability (paradise) that might be gained through its implementation, that we forget about things.

They are hoping that we forget about a lot of things... like, for all the noise and power that their machine (world politics) produce that the machine does not control itself. They are certain that we have forgotten that it is the Banker's machine... and not our machine. And it has been too long an accepted part of our collective psyche, that we actually "owe" the national debt and that "somebody" must pay it down (fuel and lubrication forever).

They have us convinced that money is real... and not merely ink and paper, and that gold and diamonds are more than pretty rocks.

They are certain that we will never move on the historical fact that President Lincoln, in wartime desperation, printed the first greenbacks during the civil war, thus winning the war but more importantly postponing Centralized Banking's takeover of this country for another 70 years. By the way, he refused to be part of "their" Machine, inadvertently foiling their efforts and was assassinated.

The Machine (something providing power) is dependent on fuel, lubrication, and good working hardware. The good working hardware are made up of many working replaceable parts (like Lincoln) meshing against each other, consuming fuel and lubrication and producing power to mobilize everything you want moved, toward a (Bankers) desired goal.

Again... the Bankers are the pilots, the Governments are the Machines, and what we think about money is the fuel and lubrication. Oh and did I mention the storms for our journey..? We have had them in the past, the mass governmental murders of their subjects. Rome, France during its Revolution, Hitler, 20 million Soviet citizens murdered under Stalin, another 20 million comrades murdered in China during Mao's purges, even the "fair play loving" United States is responsible for the genocide of Blacks during slavery, and the Native Americans in accommodation of our Manifest Destiny practices that are still being employed on a smaller scale today.

What does Centralized Banking have in common with any of that? The Bankers have funded most of the larger scale political efforts, but especially the Soviet rise to power, Nazi Germany coming to power and all their war efforts on both sides. All at interest of course and all to their marching orders. Most specifically to provide models for population control and its quick reduction. And all can be blamed on the Governments... the machinery.

Their target is a world population reduction to 500 million or around 90% eradication, and then zero population after that.

Boarding instructions for "paradise" might go something like this...

"Where then are they, the Pilots or Pilot taking us?

Well to paradise!

Loverly..! What is the description of paradise?

Oh... I think John Lennon may have described it best...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

Well... maybe its kinda nice.. uh, how do we get there.

Easy, simply trust the pilot... even if he takes us through the worst storm in history.

Wait... storm?

Well yeah... kinda. You can trust him though he's done so many times before.

But what is the storm gonna be like..?

Calm down, only nine out of ten will die... but that just means there will be more room in paradise when the Pilot gets all his servants there.


Yes... wealthy servants, who will have more than they could ever hope for.

But... how can I be sure I will be one of the one out of every ten to make it..?!

Oh just trust the machine and the Pilot running it everything will be fine! Sing it with me...

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today................."

But these are not the boarding instructions for we all, are already on board... and the Pilots are hoping you don't dig too deeply into what Lincoln did... and what he was actually assassinated for.

The Pilots are hoping you simply trust the machine that we all helped build.

I say, rather... we should all trust Jesus.

      @Roger: I was making a joke. Both Terminator and Matrix were "rise of the machine" movies, and Merwin had "machine" in his title. Truthfully, however, as I consider Merwin's conjecture just as much fiction as I consider the films, the likelihood of any of these scenarios is approximately equal.

      Well put, over my head a bit, or maybe I should say, outside the realm of my own personal knowledge for the most part but very informative and OF COURSE, well written. (Even I understood it!) Also, needless to say, this doesn't surprise me...

      I find it ironically fitting, and really quite funny, that you would admittedly rather trust fictional characters. Openly fictional, obviously fictional, undebatably fictional? At least you know FOR A FACT, that you can't really trust John Conner... Perfect!

      Sorry, Merwin, I'd prefer to trust John Connor, or Neo.
