As 1% face extinction, Scrooge, Darth Vader, Professor Snape offer advice

For those involved in support of US government-sponsored disinformation and massive crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions of the 99%’s dollars, I invite you to consider the quality of human relationships you wish to work for in creating your future.

National security and a brighter future is not a function of fear, manipulation, and psychopathic control. Our best security follows cooperation, justice under the law, dignity, and freedom.

Working for your best imagined self-expression of virtue may include a unique contribution from the inside of your agency. Please consider the wisdom of a “Scrooge conversion” to act for the benefit of all humanity rather than your self-proclaimed loveless “masters.” From Dickens’ 1843 text:

“Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world. Some people laughed to see the alteration in him, but he let them laugh, and little heeded them; for he was wise enough to know that nothing ever happened on this globe, for good, at which some people did not have their fill of laughter in the outset; and knowing that such as these would be blind anyway, he thought it quite as well that they should wrinkle up their eyes in grins, as have the malady in less attractive forms. His own heart laughed: and that was quite enough for him.”

Public attraction to the stories of Star Wars and the Harry Potter books/movies recognize that our society’s jump to civilized relations for all of us might require support from people within the “dark side” acting as covert agents for building a brighter future.

Both Darth Vader (see video) and Professor Snape realized they were only tools of powers above them, things to be manipulated rather than sentient beings of free will. The severest irony is they both recognized their service to the “dark side” included deaths of their loved-ones and even themselves whenever convenient to their “masters.”

But that should be an obvious conclusion to those working in the real-world version of these analogies. They see it in the macro picture of millions killed every year through war and poverty, and in micro with individuals who they know.

Both Vader and Snape chose strategic heroism from their unique positions within the “dark side;” both became heros. One option is becoming a whistle-blower; Project Camelot is a popular venue for people in sensitive positions.

For years, I have recommended Truth and Reconciliation to exchange full truth and return of public assets for no prosecution. Indeed, I am prepared to speak on the 1%’s corporate media to present this option with full confidence it is the most efficient in ending the crimes and avoiding a violent end-game as the 1% are recognized for who they really are by the 99%.

“Every day, I saw more evidence about the evils humankind will inflict on their fellow humans to gain or maintain power…What is more, those who choose not to empathize may enable real monsters. For without ever committing an act of outright evil ourselves, we collude with it through our own apathy…If you choose to use your status and influence to raise your voice on behalf of those who have no voice; if you choose to identify not only with the powerful, but with the powerless; if you retain the ability to imagine yourself into the lives of those who do not have your advantages, then it will not only be your proud families who celebrate your existence, but thousands and millions of people whose reality you have helped transform for the better. We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”  – J. K. Rowling, Harvard Commencement, June 5, 2008.

    Yes, but it will likely be a mass suicide, coupled with a mass murder.

    There’s much more to Jim Jones than reported by the same lying 1% corporate media.

    I think the 1% are motivated to save their own asses rather than suicide. I invite their Scrooge conversions to discover what’s possible; the embrace of virtue and love rather than fearful suicide/quitting the game.

    But that’s their call, each and every one. I’m just providing a powerful alternative that they’re already familiar with in stories.

    I did not understand what is all about this because you did not provide subtitle or closed caption for this video show to us! Shame on you for ignoring the people who cannot hear or did not understand clearly from the video show without subtitle! You think about saving your cost by avoiding put subtitle on the video screen then you are not a true humanity for the people. Our question to you: why are you playing our lives by making up your fake idea of fears?! If you are really care about the people, then put subtitle on the video screen! That will show you that you have a true humanity for the people! Think about this – we mean seriously!
