The Lies of the Land discusses manipulation and usurpation of power.The goals of political intrigue are rarely those in the interests of humanity but commonly in the commercial interests of the rulers. The main weapon of our rulers is fear. Once fear is instilled, their motives are then not questioned.
The history we are taught about World War II does not bear any logical scrutiny. There is bountiful evidence to suggest that Hitler and the western powers had covert agreements and co-ordinated actions. An examination of the Nuremberg trials leads to the inexorable conclusion that they had nothing to do with justice and everything to do with the extermination of witnesses to a criminal conspiracy.
Regrettably, deceit is not limited to politicians. Virtually every special group in society practices some form of misrepresentation to protect its own powers and the prestige of its members. These misrepresentations ultimately cost us all dearly. But there is also a cost to the perpetrators: their own advancement is stalled because their self-serving propaganda blinds them to greater truths.
We thus have corruption in science and education. We have prisons whose costs far outweigh their benefits. We have climate-change doomsayers instilling irrational fear in others in order to convince themselves that they are saving humanity from itself.
In short, instilled fear paralyses our powers of logic to the point that we readily accept political actions that would otherwise be regarded as patently absurd.It is usurpation of power at its most obvious.
Our rulers maintain their position by telling us what they want us to believe. These lies – the lies of the land – are used to keep people in fear and thereby protect the rulers from displacement.
All classes of society perpetuate myths to maintain the control of their senior members.
The Lies of the Land is aimed at exposing many such lies and suggests ways of detecting and resisting the usurpation of power.
This book aims to expose these methods of deceit.
