The Certainty of Thin Ice in Our Winter of Discontent

“It's so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone.”

“I know three things will never be believed - the true, the probable, and the logical.”
                       ― John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent

There is always uncertainty in the coming of a new year.  The prophecies and predictions of those inclined to partake in the fortune/misfortune telling of what may be come prepared with feelings and a sense of recent and distant past history. To try and see the future is to attempt to alleviate the sense of hopelessness that often pervades us. For to see the future means that we may change it, to re-direct the negative impulses into positive outcomes. The seer must have patience for there will be few to heed the warnings. The seer must never succumb to fear.despite the thinness of the ice on which he walks.

“The words are meaningless except in terms of feeling. Does anyone act as the result of thought or does feeling stimulate action and sometimes thought implement it.”
― John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent   

So what do you see coming this year? 


  1. This is the year of darkness we are about to embark upon.

    It may be too late to gather mass to stop the onslaught. Can't say that I haven't tried.

  2. Mike Adams thinks it's very bleak:

    20 dark predictions for 2013, the year of oppression and insanity

    And I feel the same way, but also for Europe. The only difference is, that they have already taken our guns from us...

    1. "There is an invincible taste for prostitution in the heart of man, from which comes his horror of solitude. He wants to be 'two'. The man of genius wants to be 'one'... It is this horror of solitude, the need to lose oneself in the external flesh, that man nobly calls 'the need to love'. " ~Charles Baudelaire

      "It is a notorious fact that the morality of society as a whole is in inverse ratio to its size; for the greater the aggregation of individuals, the more the individual factors are blotted out, and with them morality, which rests entirely on the moral sense of the individual and the freedom necessary for this. Hence, every man is, in a certain sense, unconsciously a worse man when he is in society than when acting alone; for he is carried by society and to that extent relieved of his individual responsibility. . . . Any large company composed of wholly admirable persons has the morality and intelligence of an unwieldy, stupid, and violent animal. The bigger the organization, the more unavoidable is its immorality and blind stupidity. Society, by automatically stressing all the collective qualities in its individual representatives, puts a premium on mediocrity, on everything that settles down to vegetate in an easy, irresponsible way. Individuality will inevitable be driven to the wall. This process begins in school, continues at the university, and rules all departments in which the State has a hand. In a small social body, the individuality of its members is better safeguarded; and the greater is their relative freedom and the possibility of conscious responsibility. Without freedom there can be no morality." ~ Carl Jung (from The Relations Between the Ego and the Unconscious, p.169)

      "I have listened with great interest to discussions regarding decentralization and centralization and I have thought that the question of whether it is valid to decentralize or centralize is unanswerable because it deals with one one-way sign in two-way traffic. It is a static question in a dynamic universe.

      Man was invented a mobile device and process. He has survived through his ability to advance or retreat as his mortal requirements have dictated. Of his two primary faculties, quickness is of great importance but intellect is first.

      He recognized that vital quickness may be momentary reflex but that satisfactory continuities are proportional to his degree of comprehension of the consequence of his initiative. Degree of comprehension he measures in the terms of the complex integration of all individuals' all-time experience, as processed by intellectual integrity. His quickness would be a spontaneous servant to that integrity.

      Despite intermittent submissiveness to runaway momentums of residual ignorance, man guards most dearly and secretly his freedom of thought and initiative. Therefrom emanates the social-industrial relay, from self starter to group starters.

      Out of this freedom alone understanding may be generated. Man recognizes understanding as an activated circuit of mutual comprehension by individual minds. Understanding must be plural. However, because individual experience is unique, understanding can be developed only in principle out of the compounding significance of plurality of experience. Thus, man knows that the voluntary interactions of understanding dealing in fundamental principles will always master involuntary mass actions, and that individual freedom ever anticipates and ultimately masters mutual emergency."
      ~ from "Ideas and Integrities" by Buckminster Fuller (1963)

  3. I don't know. I was told, in 2007, that ALL the secret societies were avenging the round-up of the Templar Knights by King Phillip of France on Friday, October the 13th, 1307. It WAS seven hundred years later so I asked what gives.

    An old ex-Freemason said, it would be too logical to get even a straight 700 years after. Skull & Bones and all them like to be sophisticated. So turn the century and year around: 1307 becomes SEVEN centuries later (2000s) on the 13th YEAR. 2013.

    I think it's all bunk. The jew bankers won. If THEY think they're avenging the Templars this year I guess they can do their victory jig and get it over with.

  4. Why so gloomy lads ? The skirmishes must go on, "the skirmishes of the untimely man."

    "The highest type of free men should be sought where the highest resistance is constantly overcome: five steps from tyranny, close to the threshold of the danger of servitude." ~ Nietzsche

    The following is section no. 38 of “Skirmishes of an Untimely Man” from Friedrich Nietzsche’s "The Twilight of the Idols."

    "38. My conception of freedom. — The value of a thing sometimes does not lie in that which one attains by it, but in what one pays for it — what it costs us. I shall give an example. Liberal institutions cease to be liberal as soon as they are attained: later on, there are no worse and no more thorough injurers of freedom than liberal institutions. Their effects are known well enough: they undermine the will to power; they level mountain and valley, and call that morality; they make men small, cowardly, and hedonistic — every time it is the herd animal that triumphs with them. Liberalism: in other words, herd-animalization.

    These same institutions produce quite different effects while they are still being fought for; then they really promote freedom in a powerful way. On closer inspection it is war that produces these effects, the war for liberal institutions, which, as a war, permits illiberal instincts to continue. And war educates for freedom. For what is freedom? That one has the will to assume responsibility for oneself. That one maintains the distance which separates us. That one becomes more indifferent to difficulties, hardships, privation, even to life itself. That one is prepared to sacrifice human beings for one’s cause, not excluding oneself. Freedom means that the manly instincts which delight in war and victory dominate over other instincts, for example, over those of “pleasure.” The human being who has become free — and how much more the spirit who has become free — spits on the contemptible type of well-being dreamed of by shopkeepers, Christians, cows, females, Englishmen, and other democrats. The free man is a warrior.

    How is freedom measured in individuals and peoples? According to the resistance which must be overcome, according to the exertion required, to remain on top. The highest type of free men should be sought where the highest resistance is constantly overcome: five steps from tyranny, close to the threshold of the danger of servitude. This is true psychologically if by “tyrants” are meant inexorable and fearful instincts that provoke the maximum of authority and discipline against themselves; most beautiful type: Julius Caesar. This is true politically too; one need only go through history. The peoples who had some value, attained some value, never attained it under liberal institutions: it was great danger that made something of them that merits respect. Danger alone acquaints us with our own resources, our virtues, our armor and weapons, our spirit, and forces us to be strong. First principle: one must need to be strong — otherwise one will never become strong.

    Those large hothouses for the strong — for the strongest kind of human being that has so far been known — the aristocratic commonwealths of the type of Rome or Venice, understood freedom exactly in the sense in which I understand it: as something one has or does not have, something one wants, something one conquers."

    706 years equals 13, but who's counting. ;)

    Take your pills. Or rather, don't for once...

  9. Does the Gotham map have specific points of reference that can actually represent a real location? It is reported that the Narrows school is shaped like a gun. Or is it just a name in an unspecific zone? Another black ops can be anywhere. The frenzy is about another school, but it doesn't have to be. That is "directed" info by whom? Because theaters have been attacked too, another theater could be a target. I found one that is quite interestingly named "Narrows." This is the strategy of tension being played out to keep the populace afraid and to keep the gun grabbing issue sizzling. Anyway thanks to the young man who kept analyzing and looking for more details to predict; then acted!


    Superintendent shutters "Narrows school" due to bat man reference

    "Narrows High School matches Dark Knight Rises Gotham Map for Narrows. The location for Strike Zone 2 has been identified! It's the Narrows High School in Virginia. The superintendent has closed the school district in an emergency announcement."

    "This reference was in a map that appeared in a scene in this movie. Another zone on this map appearing in the movie was “Narrows.” The author, who posted this article, did an online Google search based “on a hunch” for “Narrows Schools.” From this search, information for Narrows Elementary/Middle School and Narrows High School appeared."

    The Theater @ Fort Hamilton Army Base

    Council on Foreign Relations Plan for Global Governance in 2013
    December 30, 2012

    By Nicholas West


    It is incredible that mention of a one-world government in many circles is still considered to be conspiracy talk. Fortunately, the global political awakening that arch-globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski has referred to is forcing ever-increasing justifications for their use of globalist language.
    Just as we have seen from other think tanks such as the Project For a New American Century, The Royal Society, and the Brookings Institution, among others; their thoughts translate to reality on a less-than-coincidental frequency, so we would do well to listen to what they are saying.

    The book The World Conquerors—The Real War Criminals by Louis Marschalko, published in 1958, is a must read:
