#13.3 Peace Revolution Podcasts 21 thru 30

Episodes 21 through 30 – History, realpolitik, money and more of the course.

2011-3-16: #21 The Occult History of World War / A Veil Lifted

This episode is almost 4 hours long, but it is very important. History is basic grammar; a thorough presentation of the history of World War I, a crucial subject in modern history, is basic material to the course. The speech / lecture forming much of the second half of this episode dates from 1961. This speech is loaded: Benjamin Freedman, a Jew who converted to Catholicism, develops themes that precede the best disclosure of the same information by Arthur Koestler some 15 years later. He also indicates that he probably agrees with Arab Semitic anthropology, a controversial subject. Nevertheless, basic grammar, grist for the mill; you just might learn something.


Arthur Koestler- The Thirteenth Tribe. The Khazar Empire and its Heritage.

2011-4-4: #22 The Best Enemies Money Can Buy / The Arch which connects 2 Pillars

This episode is approx. 2 and a half hours long. It continues with basic grammar; Antony Sutton's work is as important as Carroll Quigley's. Then “team B” the neocons and various other cabals are referenced. Edward Bernays and others are reviewed. It concludes with a humorous interview of Donald Rumsfeld.


The works of Antony Sutton-
Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development: 1917-1930 (1968)
Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development: 1930-1945 (1971)
Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development: 1945-1965 (1973)

The Two Faces of George Bush (1988)
The Federal Reserve Conspiracy (1995)
Trilaterals Over America (1995)
Cold Fusion: Secret Energy Revolution (1997)
Gold For Survival (1999)

You may find that some of these titles are rare books as they have been suppressed, nevertheless Sutton from his vantage point and access to original sources is indispensable, so much so that we actively encourage any means of disseminating his works to the general public, something he certainly would have wanted.

Edward Bernays- Propaganda
2011-4-4: #23 How to Free Your Mind / The Occulted Keys of Wisdom

Richard Grove, lecture of the course describing “learning by identity.”

2011-4-22: #24 Logic Works because it's Rational / How to Teach Each Other

A group discussion on the course, including a very important discussion of the “Zeitgeist movement” which is uncovered and recognized as just another repackaging of the same old status quo; a message to the masses to accept the present leadership, goals, world government, etc. At this point we formally distance ourselves from these movements as they run completely counter to the ideas of E. C. Riegel and the peace revolution. Also somewhat of interest is that many apocalyptic dates promulgated in the popular press, such as 21 December 2012 as a Mayan prophecy for the end of the age, etc. turn out to have been deliberate frauds.


Shlomo Sand- Invention of the Jewish People

2011-4-30: #25 A History of Media in America / Education for your Edification

This episode is slightly over 2 and a half hours largely consisting of the reading of several chapters from a book; Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman, written back in 1985, but still pertinent (consider that it was written before the arrival of the internet). In it one would be placed on notice that abstinence from print media (typology) and reliance on visual media (motion pictures and television) reduces one to understand only the ideas these frames of reference communicate through visual stimuli and whether recognized at the outset or not, places a limitation on what can be comprehended or used to build really comprehensive solutions to mankind's modern and pressing problems. Rational typographic comprehension as it was known widely in past epochs, is these days fairly limited to those practising among the professions, especially law, which explains in large part why most decision makers at this point in history are lawyers, whether they read thoroughly whatever it is they are called upon to act upon, or not.

Therefore I admonish all who read this to continue reading, to those who do not habitually read, it's time to understand the singular difference between masters and slaves. The former can read and write. It is no accident that the Latin root for the words “book” and “liberty” are the same. If you have ever wondered what difference exists between a “learned” person and one who is a “primitive” in any sense whether ancient or modern, one need not stray farther from the simplest distinction; the former is formidably armed through reading and writing, while the latter is veritably at his mercy. Since not all time has run out, if you have never though of yourself as a reader of books, for whatever reasons, perhaps it's time to change your habits, making more time for reading. Better yet, get yourself a small book with blank pages and in it record all the books you read from cover to cover (those you stop reading are never counted). Only record their titles, authors and the date you completed reading them.

The outstanding contribution Postman makes is largely in the realm of the obvious; people develop other means of communications which actually changes how people learn and think. Marshall McLuhan, who Postman acknowledges, was not the first or only one to see the obvious in an age when recognizing the profundity of the obvious was often a source of ridicule by much of the academic community, who probably wished McLuhan had not pointed out the obvious or given them such wide public awareness, which even today few people really understood.

For the rest of what Postman tells us about television, you'll have to read the rest of his book.


Neil Postman- Amusing Ourselves to Death, Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business
Marshall McLuhan- Understanding Media

2011-5-8: #26 Exposing the Folly of an American Theatre of the Absurd
This episode is about Osama bin Laden functioning as the centre piece of a huge, essentially theatrical operation of the powerful forces beyond the government. Dr. Steve Pieczenik, someone claiming to be an insider and someone loyal to George Bush Sr. is interviewed by Alex Jones (You also get to hear Jones interview James Corbett). You'll hear a lot of rhetoric with some basic grammar. A lot of what is “disclosed” is already familiar to many researchers. This was all fresh and new in 8 May 2011, but where has it gone since then? Late in his interview, Pieczenik prognosticates that Obama will manage to get re-elected, etc. Pieczenik closes with Ad hominem pronouncements against public officials. Such matters are just grist for the mill rather than supposed to be automatically accepted as viable or relevant, for as far as I know, anyone who would claim loyalty to Bush Sr. wouldn't possibly be a friend of truth or the American people.

2011-5-14: #27 DIAMONDS: The Jewel of Denial / Outgrowing Stockholm Syndrome
More history; basic grammar. This episode focuses on diamonds as at the heart of many overt and covert political and military operations, the founding of De Beers and the beginning of the Cecil Rhodes trusts, their influence, etc. from 1888 onward. Diamonds (as is the case with most of the silver and gold bullion commonly used in trade), have blood on them, either in the mining of them or in their uses to fund wars. The reference to the Stockholm syndrome is that those who unwittingly support the trade in diamonds are supporting their captors.

Stockholm syndrome is basically defined as when a hostage develops a bond with their captor, usually with some trauma, abuse or torture involved. It's a phenomenon that can occur on many levels, from the personal to the group or national. It has many applications as a metaphor in situations involving international relations as well as domestic disputes. It should be better understood.

2011-5-21: #28 How to Spot the Lie / Kung-Fu for your Mind
Another group discussion of the course focusing on recognizing logical fallacies and common forms of deception. Near the end, the group comes close to asserting that the root of corruption in the capitalist / socialist system is usury, which of course is exactly what the E. C. Riegel position would be. The hubris demonstrated by the few in regard to devising rules of conduct for the rest of humanity to live under, by FORCE, and with their consent (Stockholm syndrome), is also discussed.

2011-5-28: #29 Metaphors of Liberation / The Wisdom of Gullible's Travels
This episode largely concerns Manly Hall's lecture on Gulliver's Travels. The heart of it seems to be the concept of a person becoming a “unit of integrity” which becomes the font of value in human society. It will be understood, as I'm sure it was to Richard Grove and his friends, that Hall was among other things a writer interested in the esoteric, occult and Masonic, so Hall's lecture is presented as basic grammar on the subjects involved; one's implicit belief or acceptance of anything in this lecture is never required. This is merely more grist for the mill, but the subjects addressed are important.


Jonathan Swift- Gulliver's Travels

2011-6-4: #30 The Fire of Corruption in Education / John Taylor Gatto and Henrik Palmgren
Henrik Palmgren (Red Ice Radio) interviews well known educator, John Taylor Gatto and this serves as an introduction to Gatto and his ideas. #13.5 includes Gatto's weekend seminar/interview with Richard Grove and his friends. While some out there would not have the patience to weather Gatto's aged and unglamourous style of address, there are kernels of data to be gleaned here, especially concerning education and the school systems operating right now around the world.
