Postscript
by Dave Ratcliffe

The gleaming critical analysis presented in this volume covers genuine living history of our post-WWII world, beginning during the period when U.S. federal covert agencies stepped into the big time with political assassinations, including Patrice Lumumba, John Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin King, Robert Kennedy, Fred Hampton and John Lennon. The center of this book is concerned with the acts that followed these assassinations, the one-two punch operation of the 11 Sep 2001 bombings followed by the anthrax attacks.

The purpose of producing this volume is to manifest what Graeme wrote of in an early draft of the Preface: “If we in this social movement of 9/11 dissent are not willing to tell our own stories, who will tell them? Wikipedia?[][††][†††] A graduate student somewhere keen to impress his or her advisor by exposing ‘conspiracy theories?’”

Today’s (2020-2023) ongoing three-year psychological operation Fear and Chaos takes things a step beyond the 2001 scenarios, implementing what Vincent Salandria explained over a half-century ago in 1971:

[S]ecret elitist police organizations such as the CIA do not thrive on peace, democracy, and a contented and informed people. The power of intelligence agencies increases in direct proportion to the degree of sickness of a nation. A healthy and united people can localize the cancer of a power-usurping intelligence agency and eventually extirpate its malignant cells from the nation’s political life. Therefore, the intelligence apparatus which killed Kennedy has a need to keep our society in turmoil. It has—in order to maintain its power—to generate a high degree of chaos. Chaos is required to make a people willing to accept such strong medicine as is administered by the secret police in order to restore order and to stabilize a disintegrating society. It takes an acutely sick society to be able to accept as palatable the terrible cure—totalitarianism.

The relentless 24/7 print, broadcast, and digital “programming” by corporate empire state press organs is a compelling and deadly soporific for humanity. Throughout my life, I am increasingly driven by a need to understand how our world actually operates. Not the fantasy projections of how and why things are the way they are which the system of corporate governance hands down from on high, but rather the living, genuine past that informs the present.

Consider the root basis of what is termed, in the present epoch, the United States.

Since the 1970s, Shawnee/Lenape scholar Steven Newcomb has been decoding the Domination System that began with the arrival of Europeans in the Western Hemisphere. His cogent analysis includes the core understanding that, “The words that we use create and maintain the reality that we experience.” In a wide-ranging 2012 presentation, Newcomb illustrates and deconstructs the framework for Doctrines of Domination within 15th Century Vatican Papul Bulls and their Latin language meaning that form a Protocol of Domination Vocabulary. This language continues to be fundamentally operative in today’s world. Colonization, in what Newcomb terms the Empire Domination Model of Christianity, has a dual purpose of both the taking of Original Free Peoples’ lands and lives throughout the world as well as colonizing consciousness and thought patterns. As he describes an instance of this:

Cultivate in Latin is colere which means to colonize and to design. The root of colonization is colon which is the digestive tract of the body politic, to extend that metaphor. But colo in Latin is to filter out impurities in the process of mining. So the background context is the mining and that means mining everything for profit, for wealth and so forth—power. The root impetus to the entire thing is greed, the will to domination; the will to be enriched in order to gain more power.

The obdurate, relentless drive for more power and control is a constant in the true history of the current corporate empire state called the United States. As John Kirby shared with me regarding this volume of Graeme’s essays, “his considerable powers make him a formidable voice who balances outrage and brilliance with profound empathy for the human condition.” Given today’s system of Warp Speed Propaganda, striving to operate as a black hole subsuming every trace of the past in an enchantment of illusion, there is a need to create reflections of our genuine history to neutralize this abyss of non-being.

Kirby’s appreciation of Graeme’s profound empathy for our fragile, irreplaceable, and gifted human family is a key to this nonpareil collection. A sliver of Graeme’s understanding of how our world actually operates is found in these passages:

18 Mar 2018
Our task is clear. We must mobilize both our investigative resources and our communication resources to nullify the efforts of those who specialize in the construction and encouragement of war triggers and who wish to keep the war system robust. We lost over 100 million people to war in the 20th century. Are we really going to let this happen again?
22 Nov 2018
There is something I have always found arresting about the grassy knoll, and my concerns extend to the suppressed witnesses of September 11. In both cases we have ordinary folks—people like ourselves—who are, supposedly, citizens of a democracy. They are also, as far as we can tell, of sound mind and body, able to perceive with their senses and assess with their minds. Yet, all of a sudden, when their bodies and minds tell them something that conflicts with a government dictum, they are considered by government of no more political competence than cattle. I find it hard to think of a greater insult to these “good citizens” and to the notion of democracy, and I find it hard to think of a more brash assertion of the principle of authority. 8 Sep 2022, with Ted Walter
To study the [11 September] day’s events as they unfolded on television is to experience in a shockingly direct way how a well-oiled propaganda system—of which television is a central component—can spin grand and lethal yarns that silence the citizens who experience, who witness, who suffer, and who constitute the epistemic backbone of democracy. The ability of this propaganda system to achieve the triumph of the Official Narrative in a matter of hours suggests to us that while good science is necessary for dispelling the Official Narrative, alone it may not be sufficient.
Oftentimes, researchers (engineers, scientists, academics, etc.) carry on their research as if they were merely studying the natural world — a world that has no interest in the researchers and does not look back at them. But in cases such as 9/11, researchers are working within an intellectual context shaped by an intelligent opponent. This opponent is neither inert nor disinterested, but looks back at the researcher. It has intentionally laid down sets of false claims and dead-end trails and can be expected to continue to do so....
Evidence could not stop the Official Narrative from triumphing on 9/11, and evidence alone will not defeat the Official Narrative now.

In these writings, Graeme’s clarity of heart and mind lights the way, dispelling today’s orchestrated mind-fog shaped 24/7/365 by the intelligent opponent authoring and directing the Official Narrative. The box office “success” since the 2001 release of the Global War on Terror Movie has deliberately grossed uncountable and unconscionable loss of life throughout Mother Earth, as well as exponentially increasing despair and a sense of meaninglessness.

In a 2017 exchange with Marty Schotz, Vincent Salandria, Ed Curtin, William Whitney, Rodolfo Cardona, and me, Graeme wrote about the process he explored in writing Beyond Their Wildest Dreams: Sep 11 2001 and the United States Left. His motivation was “to understand how people come to know the world and how we can open up closed minds.” He explained some of this as his “imagination approach” in the following:

I adopted the word [imagination] from German philosopher Gunther Anders, whose 1962 article, Thesis for the Atomic Age had a big effect on me over the years as a peace and environmental activist. Anders said that in the nuclear age we are doomed if we don’t have imagination. He said,
The basic dilemma of our age is that “We are smaller than ourselves,” incapable of mentally realizing the realities which we ourselves have produced. Therefore we might call ourselves “inverted Utopians”: while ordinary Utopians are unable to actually produce what they are able to visualize, we are unable to visualize what we are actually producing.
He also said that escapists of today do not hide in imagination, they hide in the ivory tower of perception, because the senses are “‘senselessly’ narrow.” So, he was giving a power to this word “imagination” that we don’t normally give it. “Imagination” is what we give ourselves to when we have the courage to face the world, to actually visualize what is going on. It is, he says, part of the courage to be afraid.

The imperative of having the courage to truly face the world right now—which is part of the courage to be afraid—is the polar opposite of the manufactured epidemic of fear that has colonized so many minds and hearts over the past three years. A dress rehearsal for today’s campaign to merge “national security”—read: corporate aggrandizement, consolidation, and greed founded on lies and deception—with the oxymoron of biosecurity was the 2001 anthrax attacks.

Graeme’s 2014 book, The 2001 Anthrax Deception: The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy, is THE go-to account of how “the group that carried out this crime consisted, in whole or in part, of insiders deep within the US state apparatus” and how the “anthrax attacks were meant to facilitate a seizure of power by the executive branch of government through intimidation of Congress and US civil society. They were also designed to achieve public acquiescence to and support for the redefinition of US foreign policy, replacing the Cold War with a new and aggressive global conflict framework, the Global War on Terror.”

After almost two decades of the Official Narrative of fighting Endless Terror, the enemy was superseded with a far more frightening menace: an invisible, non-human monster that, the world was told, would kill millions in the U.S.. The new mantra inaugurating the biosecurity state was unveiled in March 2020 with the incantation: Two Weeks To Flatten The Curve. From this, a historically unprecedented global “lockdown”—previously termed house arrest—was instituted in unprecedented singular lockstep by national governments, beginning an unprecedented experiment in medical and political history. The threshold breached turned weeks into years with the consequent ongoing bid to expropriate inalienable rights in service to the stay safe playbook.

My past three years have been spent studying the intellectual context of the intelligent opponent’s endgame. The resulting trilogy catalogs some of the dimensions of the new Lockdown World-Mind movie: Apprehending the False Promise of Biosecurity (Nov 2020), Conscience and The Nuremberg Code (Oct 2021), and History Will Not Absolve Us (Dec 2022).

One of many obvious indicators of the opponent’s intentionally directed psychological operation was—and remains—the question of why, in April 2020, the only “solution” announced from on high was that we had to wait for an experimental gene therapy injection for every human being on Mother Earth while simultaneously denying approval of Chloroquine, Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, Budesonide, Vitamin D, and a host of other effective, safe, and cheap repurposed drugs as efficacious remedies available in 2020 to successfully treat C19.

The obvious answer: if repurposed drugs were acknowledged by officialdom to be effective, proven treatment protocols to prevent and treat COVID, then the Emergency Use Authorization—which was/is only valid IFthere are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives”—would be invalid.

Tess Lawrie, MD, PhD, has been called The Conscience of Medicine. In March 2022, she succinctly summarized the intellectual opponent’s C19 deception:

... what’s really important about ivermectin is [it’s] the key to unlocking all the secrets of this pandemic.... hydroxychloroquine was squashed as well, and if ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine had been approved, there would have been no lockdowns, there would have been no masking or any of that necessary because they’re really good at reducing transmission. Ivermectin especially [as] it works for prevention as well as treatment. There would have been no Emergency Use Authorization of experimental novel treatments and that includes the new gene-based vaccines. If you want to understand what Covid is all about then you've got to start with ivermectin and that really unlocks the whole mystery.

The mechanism whereby the intelligent opponent’s Official Narrative has been perpetrated and perpetuated is the truly fearsome power of State Censorship & Gagged Thought. The key that has locked everything up, making all the unspeakable, criminally unaccountable injury and death possible—right before everyone’s eyes—is the suppression of all information, analysis, and open debate about the wisdom and intelligence of so-called democratic governing policies. Censorship is the ultimate tool to smother and extinguish the free exchange of ideas and from this, the freedom to think, free from any external influence or coercion.

Robert Heinlein captured the essential power exercised by censorship in his 1949 novel, Revolt in 2010. The story revolved around efforts to overthrow a 100-year theocratic totalitarian United States of America:

I began to sense faintly that secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy ... censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, “This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything—you can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.

The lies and intentional deceptions are mountainous, as partially reflected in the horrifying risks and consequences of the C19 experimental injections and that the C19 injection program is a DOD Military Prototype Project.

For example, for two years, the nom de plum Spartacus, writing under the aegis of Institute for Coronavirus Emergence Nonprofit Intelligence (ICENI: “We maintain no member rosters. Anyone is ICENI. No one is ICENI. The simple act of researching COVID-19 on your own initiative in good faith makes you one of us.”), has demonstrated very detailed expertise in the medical science field, producing voluminous critical analysis. See, for example, PSA - Why You Shouldn’t Take the Vaccine - A highly condensed primer on why these vaccines are so dangerous 25 Feb 2023, and the densely detailed timeline, COVID-19: The Biodefense Mafia - Tyranny comes, wearing the cloak of biosecurity and biodefense 13 Feb 2023.

Recently, I completed making annotated transcripts of the five-part documentary series released earlier this year and directed by Vera Sharav: NEVER AGAIN IS NOW GLOBAL. Ms. Sharav is the founder and president of the Alliance for Human Research Protection. From the Press Release:

This ambitious film project is the brainchild of Holocaust survivor and human rights activist Vera Sharav. The series addresses the many parallels between the Holocaust and the last three years of lockdowns and coerced medical procedures. It’s rooted in Sharav’s experiences both as a survivor and as the mother of Amikhai Sharav, a young man who died as the result of taking a prescribed medication whose risks had not been disclosed to the public.

In our world today, the final bid is being made in the long history of the Doctrine of Domination, to end the charade of so-called democratic governance and institute a genuine Digital Dark Age.

Finding the courage to grapple with this profoundly fearsome situation is paramount to the successful continuance of the human project. Each of us is answerable to our Creator. Each of us has an immutable relationship with the source of our existence. The ineffable mystery we each embody is eternally framed in the wonder of whatever is really going on here. To confront, explore, and visualize the darkness of how our world actually operates is beautifully expressed by James Douglas, author of JFK and the Unspeakable - Why He Died and Why It Matters, in a 2008 talk he gave about his then-newly released book:

It’s that everything [in the Cold War in 1962-1963] was totally out of control and then, through a kind of incredible process where these two men were communicating secretly with each other over the year previous [Sep 1962-63], and smuggling letters back and forth to each other, in the midst of this conflict, they were beginning to trust each other.... It’s a remarkable process. And it’s all beneath the surface. But so are all the things that count as Merton understood.... And that’s why I have some hopes that if we are willing to go deeply enough into the darkness—and Kennedy was, and Khrushchev was—anything can happen for the good. But if we don’t go into the darkness it doesn’t happen.

Having the courage to go into the darkness, to face the world and actually visualize what is going on, opens us up to unlimited conscious awareness of what can be.

Patrice Lumumba was an Indigenous Tetela/Bantu leader who was the first prime minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Speaking at the Pan-African Conference in August 1960, he addressed what Africans had to do after formal emancipation from colonialism:

[S]ooner or later we would have to review everything...and think everything through.... We knew that we would have to create new structures...to revise the methods that had been forced upon us and above all to rediscover our most intimate selves and rid ourselves of mental attitudes and complexes and habits that colonization had trapped us in for centuries.

In all this, the irreducible reality of every person’s birthright autonomy, being ultimately answerable only to one’s Creator, gives us unbridled freedom to decide what we will do with these utterly mysterious lives we’ve been given. Understanding is based on recognition of the fact that in each moment, I choose to interpret what I perceive in precisely the way I choose to interpret it. I choose. No one else is response able for my state of psychic being. This makes me absolutely accountable to my self for the psychic reality I construct in each moment. This response ability exists within each of us. Life perpetually invites us to see and act upon this constantly changing but ever-present opening to greater wholeness. The choice is ours alone to make.

Graeme’s meditation teacher, Kathleen MacKay, says with great wisdom in a recent letter:

So many of us are living with (under) currents of intensity and seemingly overpowering emotions just below the surface, and yet, there is a ‘chop wood, carry water’ path through it all—the threat of loss or pain looms, so what do we do? We make dinner. We make the bed. We walk in the woods. We lie in a soft pool of sunlight on the rug and pet the cat. We cry... In short, we Live. And somehow, by the raw and perfect grace of Love’s inexorable momentum, somehow it all works itself out. Do not ask me how. I am too busy standing in awe of the perfection—bright and clear, like winter sun—with eyes blurred with tears...

It is with profound gratitude that I have been invited by Life to assist Graeme in the production of this digital book. His devotion and commitment to furthering the creative evolution of the human project is absolute, affirmed by exercising his imagination to face the world and actually visualize what is going on here. From his courage to experience the fear of opening up to this and presenting his understanding of its meaning, we are gifted with a beacon providing illumination and understanding for all who likewise have the courage to plumb the darkness—for the sake of all, and all beings yet unborn on Mother Earth. We were born with a sacred obligation to be true to our Creator, true to our selves, and true to our single, human family.
