Americans Now Outlawed From Knowing The Laws They Live Under

“Paranoia used to be considered a form of mental illness: today it is regarded as just another ideology.”

 Justin Raimondo (1951-present) American author and the editorial director of Antiwar.com

Special Report from Sister Ciara

For over 50 years, I’ve extensively researched thousands of human societies throughout the world, with all them having one single connection throughout all time—people agreeing to live with each other based upon a set of mutually accepted norms, that are called “laws”.

Law is a system of rules that are created and enforced through social or governmental institutions to regulate behavior, and from our most ancient times when small groups of nomadic peoples roamed the vastness of our Earth, to today’s gargantuan nation states having populations in the hundreds-of-millions and billions, all were made possible by people agreeing with each other in how they would live with each other.

From the most open and free societies one can imagine, to the cruelest and most despotic regimes the human mind could conceive, all have been governed by laws—some being secular in nature (denoting attitudes, activities, or other things that have no religious or spiritual basis), with others being based upon religious beliefs.

And in all of recorded history, the laws people choose to live by, or were forced to adhere to, were known by everyone who lived under them—except for today!

The reason this is so is because the United States, barely a month ago, became the first society in all of recorded human history to outlaw its citizens from knowing the laws they live under!

You haven’t heard about this because while it’s simple to understand, its complexity has been lost on both the citizens of America and, most importantly, its mainstream propaganda media—all of whom, scientists have recently reported, now have a shorter attention span than a goldfish

Why We Should All Have a Basic Income | Davos World Economic Forum 2017 | Stillness in the Storm

(Stillness in the Storm Editor) The following article originally appeared on the World Economic Forum. It is a call for a basic income for humanity, something that some consider a viable option to address the financial hardships felt by so many in the modern world. While meeting the basic needs of our human family members should be something we work together for, if the proposal isn’t fair and honest, it likely won’t work. Moreover, if the basic income is provided by a clandestine agency, such as a central bank that uses the government as a distribution entity, then what is demanded of the people to receive this money? In other words, the issuance of a basic income could make the people even more dependent on their plutocratic overlords than ever before—clearly not a beneficial situation..

Canada’s ‘Basic Income’: Progressive Dreams Meet Neoliberal Realities — David Icke latest headlines

‘Up until now, the concept of Basic Income (BI) has enjoyed a greater history of being proposed than of being implemented. We may well be approaching a period, however, when this changes. The Ontario Government is holding consultations on setting up a BI pilot project. The Legislature in another Canadian Province, Prince Edward Island, has…

Overwhelming Evidence that a Guaranteed Income Will Work

SAT, 9/3/2016 BY PAUL BUCHHEIT

We’ll have to do something drastically different to employ people in the future. Our jobs are disappearing. The driverless vehicle is here, destined to eliminate millions of transport and taxi-driving positions. Car manufacturing is being done by 3-D printing. An entire building was erected in Dubai with a 3-D printer. Restaurants are being designed with no waitstaff or busboys, hotels with no desk clerks, bellhops, and porters. Robot teachers are interacting with students in Japan and the U.K.

There are plenty of naysayers and skeptics, of course. The Atlantic proclaimed, “The job market defied doomsayers in those earlier times, and according to the most frequently reported jobs numbers, it has so far done the same in our own time.” But this is a different time, with no guarantees of job revolutions, and in fact a time of unprecedented machine intelligence that threatens the livelihoods even of doctors, teachers, accountants, architects, the clergy, consultants, and lawyers.

Finland Unleashes Helicopter Money In “Greatest Societal Transformation Of Our Time” | Zero Hedge

Tyler Durden's picture

The below article was posted by Mikko Annala on demoshelsinki.fi:

Finland is about to launch an experiment in which a randomly selected group of 2,000–3,000 citizens already on unemployment benefits will begin to receive a monthly basic income of 560 euros (approx. $600). That basic income will replace their existing benefits. The amount is the same as the current guaranteed minimum level of Finnish social security support. The pilot study, running for two years in 2017-2018, aims to assess whether basic income can help reduce poverty, social exclusion, and bureaucracy, while increasing the employment rate.

The Finnish government introduced its legislative bill for the experiment on 25 August. Originally, the scope of the basic income experiment was much more ambitious. Many experts have criticized the government’s experiment for its small sample size and for the setup of the trial, which will be performed within just one experimental condition. This implies that the experiment can provide insights on only one issue, namely whether the removal of the disincentives embedded in social security will encourage those now unemployed to return to the workforce or not.
