Responding to Questions in Comments, from Twitter, Proton Mail (working again) • Updates/New Titles: Literature/Recommended Reading Page (books, essays, source documents, etc.), Catalog of Posts Written & Sacred Destabilization Series • August 28, 2022



Twitter:

From Comments, I was asked for my Twitter handle: cyber_variant


Literature Page:

This blog has a Recommended Reading Page, the link is here:

Recommended Reading

Today into tonight I am adding 200+ new titles. They will be uploaded first, then categorized within a few days.

Also, the desktop version of this page (did) show inline embedded files of the book for download (that is, displayed the entire contents of the book in a display case, if you will). On the mobile view version of this page it has always just shown a thick bold red line of the title. I am underway with altering all the titles to the thick bold red lines, for it makes the page load much more expediently.

To download the title, by clicking the line item, the PDF will be downloaded to the device you are using.

As far as the catalog of titles, I own physical and/or digital copies of all of these titles. Titles that I have paid for.

Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) I am lawfully allowed to make copies available to the public. Resale of the copies is a violation of the DMCA.

If any links are broken, please feel free to contact me and I can restore the media to the link. I can be reached at: e@calculusofdecay.com.

On Twitter I received a few messages in the past few days asking me to add the authors of the titles to the line item. This is a fair request and I will do this soon as well. Also, I was asked to add a small description of each book, this too is a great idea. Within the next few weeks I can work on this. I have this week off from work and I enjoy this blogging community and the subject matter therefore I believe this is a good idea.


Question on Posts by Eric( me):

This was asked in comments, by email and also a few Twitter people. I am putting a page together with a collection of strictly my posts.

Years ago when using WordPress to build and manage small websites for clients, it was relatively easy to segregate posts from the owner of the blog apart from reblogged/pingbacked/RSS feed items/etc into distinct columns on the homepage of the blog. WordPress has made some changes which – for instance – simply activating a “premium plugin” breaks the blog apart from the WordPress framework (the community) and it is bizarre.

One may notice, I have paid for the domain and WordPress services (the main reasons I did this was to have advertising removed- and to have storage space to upload files beyond the 6or8GB the free service allows for). Right now, I am keeping the theme as is and keeping part of the WordPress framework blogging community. Reblogging interesting stuff is my favorite part of this thing.


Sacred Destabilization Series:

Five posts were made and a sixth, an interlude. There are 22 additional parts coming. Possibly more. It’s a massive thing. The books/documents/etc I have uploaded thus far and others to come in the Recommended Reading Page were used as source material. Alongside nearly 400 web sources. Many people that gravitate towards the “conspiratorial inquiry” of this blog know much of the history (ie Bolshevik Revolution, Weimar Republic, “Weapons of Mass Destruction”, occult influences on the methods and rituals of the elite – ideological, philosophical, business and academic influence, etc) – the who/what/when/where of history is there nonetheless my objective is and always has been to understand the why and how. Parts that are coming focus on aforementioned necessary historical background, moreover, on what is happening right now and most importantly: my job is to present evidence of where this thing is going.

And I’ve gotten hold of a shit ton of evidence, of proof – beyond speculative posturing – proof. Therefore, informative pieces are coming in parts Eight thru Ten. Part Seven will be one last historical overview. The parts thus far:


One Last Item: Posts to Showcase Bloggers:

This is an idea I was given by a blogger who commented that as opposed to reblogging as often – to showcase blogs/their posts/etc as a post of my own is a good idea. I completely agree and will begin to do this beginning this week. I am going to reach out to bloggers and to those that wish to participate I will gather posts (chosen by the blogger, if they prefer), short bio (if they would like), etc ..it is a good way to build up the community. Yes. I know, the internet is a vastness of the infinite and what is the point? The point is that it is enjoyable. Simple!

In the meantime, I refer you good readers to:

This man has a great blog and he is a good friend I have been fortunate to have met thru this platform. He authors alot of content, including this fiction which is a great read:

Why you should care about the Military-Industrial-Media Complex • Helen Johnson

Source: Miscellany News

n January 17, 1961, the 34th President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower, delivered the final public speech of his presidency. At that time, only five other presidents had delivered farewell addresses upon leaving office. Emblematic of the many contradictions that characterized his life and presidency, Eisenhower—the only general to be elected president during the 20th century, having served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe during World War II—left a legacy warning the nation about the implications of increasing power of the very establishment in which he served:

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”

Although the term “military-industrial complex” (MIC) was almost certainly invented by one of his speechwriters, Eisenhower is credited with its coining. The MIC has become a phrase used to describe the complex web of connections tying together the military, the Pentagon, politicians, defense contractors, and other corporations that profit from, have stakes in, or contribute to war, or any combination thereof. However, most usages include the overlap between private military contractors and the federal government, and highlight colossal military budgets, the influence the defense industry exerts over public policy and the massive profits (for some) that are reaped from war.

The attention given to a possible “military-industrial complex” rose and fell throughout the latter half of the 20th century, declining from the late 1980s through the beginning of the 2000s. However, the War on Terror sparked by the Sept. 11 attacks and the prolonged wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have renewed interest in the MIC. New factors, such as the importance of oil for national security and surveillance technology, have dramatically altered the landscape and scope of what may be considered part of the MIC since Eisenhower’s speech.

The MIC intersects with many other systems and structures. In fact, in the drafts of Eisenhower’s speech, both the terms “military-industrial-congressional complex” and “military-industrial-scientific complex” were considered. But in recent decades there has grown another connection, with one of the institutions that we, as a democratic society, hold most dear, and which Eisenhower himself identified as the one most critical to “security and liberty prospering together”: the free media.

The potential for those who hold power within the military-industrial complex to use the media to influence public opinion, either intentionally or indirectly, is extraordinary. I do not wish to paint a conspiracy of top officials and CEOs plotting a complex propaganda scheme. I also do not want to imply that reporters are directed behind closed doors to paint the MIC in a certain light. Rather, I hope to illuminate how the concentration of power within the corporate media and the MIC, along with the intersections of these industries, can influence the messaging we receive on a daily basis. This can have devastating implications for democracy.

The modern day MIC has grown into a monster of vast proportions beyond what even Eisenhower would have envisioned. Not only does today’s MIC involve the military, weapons makers and Congress, but it also includes countless government officials, the oil industry, service companies and contractors, surveillance and technology companies and think tanks that have managed to imbed their imperialist agendas into White House administrations (William D. Hartung, “Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex,” 2011). An understanding of the enormous breadth and reach of today’s MIC is essential for appreciating the countless ways in which it intersects with modern-day corporate media.

There has also been a huge consolidation of power within the media over the last several decades. In 1983 there were 50 dominant media corporations, while today only five conglomerates (AT&T, Comcast, Disney, News Corp and ViacomCBS) own about 90 percent of United States media (Ben Bagdikian, “The New Media Monopoly,” 2004). Merger after merger has consolidated the media industry into giant corporations that each have the power to reach millions, even billions, of people in the United States and around the world. These media giants have unprecedented monetary and political power, which, compounded with the fact that they control the vast majority of the news and political messaging we receive, gives them the ability to lobby and influence the government to slash regulations, grant antitrust approvals and pass laws that benefit their corporate interests. And, because they intersect with other million- and billion-dollar industries, they have the power to manufacture favorable opinion amongst the public for the mutual benefit of themselves and their partner industries (Martin A. Lee and Norman Solomon, “Unreliable Sources: A Guide to Detecting Bias in News Media,” 1990).

With knowledge of the contemporary MIC and corporate media, the connections between the two become hard to ignore. Through outright corporate ownership, interlocking directorates (when the same individual sits on more than one corporate board), revolving doors (the circulation of the same people working for the government, military contractors, and media corporations), embedded journalism (when reporters live and travel with troops during military conflict) and over-reliance on “official” (i.e. military, government and Pentagon) sources, the corporate media is undeniably linked in complex but powerful ways to the MIC. Beginning with the collaboration between Hollywood and the military made possible by the Committee on Public Information, which was founded by President Woodrow Wilson in 1917, the links between the media and the MIC have only become stronger, more frequent and more financially lucrative over time (Haidee Wasson and Lee Grieveson, “Cinema’s Military Industrial Complex,” 2018). This has resulted in a mainstream media that does not provide a check on government use of military power, but rather influences our perception of war and manufactures support for the military apparatus that is the MIC.

The intersection of the MIC with the media has had disastrous consequences. Corporate media manufactures pro-military opinion among the public, contributes to climates of mass hysteria in the periods leading up to military involvement, suppresses information relevant to military involvement, provides a sanitized coverage of war, fails to investigate, criticize or thoroughly debate issues of military involvement, too easily bends to pressure from government and military officials and even sometimes spreads outright lies and false information regarding matters of war (Dougles Kellner, “Media Spectacle and the Crisis of Democracy: Terrorism, War and Election Battles,” 2005; Normon Solomon, “War Made Easy,” 2005; Dougles Kellner, “Media Spectacle and the Crisis of Democracy,” 2002). This has resulted in an American citizenry that is ill-informed, uneducated and misled in matters regarding war and military involvement, rendering it incapable of holding its government to account when it comes to matters of military involvement.

In the United States, we consider the free press to be a hallmark of our liberty. However, the massive concentration of media power from hundreds of media firms to the big five today means that just a handful of people have the power to influence the messaging that affects millions of people throughout the nation. Not only have the media conglomerates consolidated, but they are linked in direct and indirect ways to the various arms of the MIC. Thus, they have ceased to be the unbiased news outlets we believe them to be in matters regarding war. Eisenhower’s hope that “an alert and knowledgeable citizenry” would be able to check the growing power of the military-industrial complex has not only not been realized, but is in greater danger than ever before.

Nationalized Project to Rehabilitate the Power Grid in America is Vital for Infrastructure and Real Labor Economy

There are phases to the ultimate implementation of a project of this scale that would call for the employment of millions, possibly more.

Phases:

Design: the design of a massive overhaul of our existing system is a major undertaking. There is much to consider. Within the design phase, the integration of improved components and other materials will be of high priority. The design phase will call for countless jobs. Men and women will both be involved, as both men and women are academically and professionally qualified for this undertaking.

Testing: before a nation-wide overhaul, there will be the need for testing the mechanisms that will be involved in this overhaul. This phase calls for jobs to be created.

Implementation: once the testing is successful, here comes the unprecedented largest infrastructure overhaul project, for the entire nation, the largest project our country has seen in decades. There will be the need for millions of jobs to be created here, as the technical aspects of such a project are wide in scope.

Maintenance: once the new, nationalized power system is officially up and running, the maintenance of the system will be a permanent fixture. This means that there will be qualified technicians (electricians, for instance) that will monitor the grid 24/7/365. Countless jobs…in urban, suburban and urban areas throughout America.

Enhancement: as improved technologies emerge, those that would directly enhance the operational aspects of the grid, these will need to be integrated into the existing infrastructure. Again, this doesn’t happen by snapping one’s fingers. Jobs will be created, as there will be the need for men and women to physically integrate (install) these new components.

This is the type of project that America needs to revitalize our needed infrastructure, as well as the REAL economy. Not the Wall Street financialization of fictitious asset bubbles.

The REAL ECONOMY. The employment of countless Americans will improve their financial well-being. And therefore – those Americans will have improved spending power and can seek local, family owned businesses to purchase the goods that they need for everyday living.

The Great Reset: The Fate of the US dollar

The Collapse Experiment

While reading this book I was surprised and yet not surprised at the same time that this was so far the shortest chapter. Schwab makes the obvious conclusion that there is a chance the US dollar will no longer be the world reserve currency. He discounts new forms of currency like Bitcoin but towards the end mentions the Chinese renminbi (RMB) as a possible replacement. I’m not sure if this is a smoke screen for what appears to already be happening with some countries suggesting copying the Chinese model of doing Social Credit Scores and moving all commerce to a digital format. For years now Russia and China have been buying up physical gold and silver, paying almost double in some situations above spot price, and building vaults in their national banks to house it in. Could there be a digital currency backed by gold and silver in the future?…
