An Excellent American Rant

The War On Consciousness
By Paul Levy

We are truly in a war.

It is not the war we imagine we are in, which
is the way our true adversaries want it. It is not a foreign war
against a foreign enemy. It is a war on consciousness, a war on our
own minds. The global war on terror that is being fought around the
world is an embodied reflection in the material world of a deeper,
more fundamental war that is going on in the realm of consciousness

We have the most criminal regime in all of our history wreaking
unspeakable horror on the entire planet, while simultaneously waging
war on the consciousness of its own citizens - US.
If we aren't aware
of this, we are unwittingly playing into, supporting and complicit in
the evil that is being perpetrated in our name.

A government's war on the consciousness of its own citizens is by no
means unique to the Bush administration. Abusing power over others so
as to limit their freedom is an archetypal process that has been
endlessly re-enacted by governments throughout history in various
forms. With the Bush administration, however, the pathological aspect
of this process has become so exaggerated and amped up to such a
degree that it is just about impossible not to notice its staggering
malignancy. With the Bush administration, the underlying evil that has
played out in our government over many years is becoming
overwhelmingly obvious for all to see. With the Bush administration,
the underlying evil that informs systems of government that are based
on "power over" instead of "liberty for" is coming out from hiding in
the shadows. Instead of being acted out underground, our government is
acting out this evil above ground, in plain sight for all who are
courageous enough to look.

Impeaching Bush and Co. ultimately won't change anything unless we
deal with the corrupt powers which control and direct them.
Bush is just a finger-puppet of the hidden hand which animates him.
Bush only has apparent power, as he himself is a minion of far more
powerful predator-like forces whose nefarious interests he serves.
Whether we call it the illuminati, the global elite, a shadow
government, or a secret cabal, there is no doubt that there are
darker, self-serving forces that have insinuated themselves into and
taken over our government. The terrorists that we should be worried
about are domestic terrorists who are actually implementing their
agendas from deep within our very system of government itself.

The United States Government itself has become a "front" for the
underlying military-industrial-financial crime syndicate that animates
it. This is not to say that there aren't many good, well-meaning
people in our government they are simply prohibited by the very
nature of the corrupt system they are in from reforming it. Our system
of government is rigged in such a way so that there is no way to
transform the system within the system itself.

The underlying core of our government has become rotten such that the
entire operation simply feeds into and is an expression of the same
underlying corruption. All of the scandals continually coming out are
like the superficial skin rash of a much deeper systemic disease, like
a cancer that is infecting the greater body politic. Citizens who are
not aware of our government's insidious intrusions into our lives are
unwittingly feeding the corruption they are looking away from in their
very act of looking away.

The "powers" that have taken over our government have become
concentrated and centralized in just a few elite hands, proving how
easy it is for the few to control the many. They almost control all
the levers of power: financial, political and judicial. In this war on
consciousness, these powers-that-be are using the most advanced mind-
control technology that our world has ever known to make its takeover
complete. The essence of mind-control is information control, which is
one thing our overly secretive current administration is very good at.


The private interests that control our government have an incredible
mind-control/propaganda machine at their disposal in the form of the
mainstream media, which if not quite fully owned and controlled, is
certainly under their "influence" enough to serve their underlying
self-serving agenda. George Orwell once said that omission is the
greatest form of lie this perfectly describes the corporate owned
media of today which is nothing other than the propaganda organ of the
state. The corporate world and our government are becoming
indistinguishable, which is one of the hallmarks of fascism, or more
accurately corporatism.

In addition to information, our government is adept at putting out dis-
information, whose intention is to create distractions and confusion
so as to cover its tracks and hide its true intentions. It will
purposely leak stories that are not true simply to cover-up what it is
really doing. By putting out misleading information, the government
hides behind its self-generated smokescreen like an octopus squirting

Quite often, right at the moment when people's focus is moving towards
some area of criminality in the White House, the administration will
even create a diversionary event for the public to put their attention
on. Memories of those color-coded terror alerts that always seemed to
happen right when something bad was starting to happen for the Bush
administration come to mind. In creating distractions, our government
is able to steer our collective attention in directions that allow it
to successfully accomplish its malevolent goal of grabbing all the
power it can get.

In a diabolical ploy, the administration will even feed stories to a
compliant press, and then reference these stories as justification for
enacting its pre-planned agenda. One glaring example is when the
administration fed Judith Miller of the New York Times stories about
Iraq 's weapons of mass destruction. Once this propaganda appeared on
the front page of the Times, the administration was only too happy to
use it as evidence for why we should go to war.

WMD could easily stand for "Weapons of Mind Deception", as our own
government is continually trying to "Deceive" our "Minds", which is
the battlefield in which the war on consciousness is being fought. We
are all on the front lines in the war on consciousness, whether we
know it or not. Instead of shooting us, our government is using
cutting-edge mind-control technology to psychically emasculate us. In
order to be able to deal with the evil that the Bush regime is
perpetrating, we first have to become acquainted with that very same
potential evil in ourselves so as to be able to recognize it in the
outside world. The way to vanquish our adversary is to be found hidden
within the very nature of our own awareness, which contains the key to
its own freedom.

The corporate-mainstream media "captivates" our attention, capturing a
part of our self-reflective, discriminative awareness, thereby
restricting the range of our conscious awareness, which is what
hypnotism is all about. Once the attention of the masses becomes
entranced, the corporate/government media can then "play with" our
mind. This unholy trinity of corporate/government/media can create an
obsessive fixation on certain superficial events that "seize" the
collective psyche. For example, it feeds the masses sensationalized
stories such as Anna Nicole Smith ad nauseam so as to divert our
attention from the evil that is being done behind the scenes in our

Ex-CIA director Allen Dulles used to say that the most effective way
to disguise a secret is to pretend to openly share information. The
Bush administration isn't interested in solving problems as much as
creating good PR (Public Relations) for itself. With one hand the Bush
administration will try to appear like it is openly sharing
information and being transparent, while with its other hand it will
be actively obstructing the very process it is seemingly supporting. A
vivid example is the government's 9/11 commission, whose aim was
allegedly to shed light on what happened on 9/11, while covertly
behind the scenes the Bush administration was doing everything it
could to hinder the commission's inquiries (see, for example, 9/11
Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, by David Ray Griffin).
All one has to do is investigate the numerous ties to the core cabal
of the neocon Bush administration that the members of the 9/11
commission have and the degree to which it was a deliberate operation
to obscure the truth becomes apparent. It was as if the White House
was investigating itself; the foxes truly guarding the henhouse. The
9/11 commission and its report, just like the Warren Commission and
its report on the Kennedy assassination, was a fa├žade, a show, a
display in which it appeared like our government was giving us what we
wanted, while actually being part of a deceptive game of smoke-and-
mirrors. It is like a magician has hypnotized us, and is stealing
what's in our pockets while they have us under their trance in which
we believe they are serving us.

As if by a perverse Jedi mind-trick, the Bush administration has
bewitched us into believing that it controls the national dialogue,
when in a democracy the opposite is actually true. One of many
examples when confronted with overwhelming evidence that we have been
torturing our adversaries, Bush responds by saying he "rejects" that
claim, and the conversation stops right there and moves on to other,
more superficial topics. Our government is supposed to represent us,
which is to say that they are our employees. Bush has turned this
around and put himself in the role of the dictator with us as his
subjects. And somehow we have allowed him to get away with this. There
is no escaping our individual and collective complicity in this sad
state of affairs.

One difference between what is happening in our country and the state-
controlled media of the old Soviet Union , is that in the Soviet Union ,
most people were quite aware that what was being presented to them by
their corrupt government as news was nothing but mind-warping
propaganda. Many Americans have fallen so under the spell of the Bush
regime's criminal lies that they don't even know they are being lied
to. It is like we are living in a land of state-controlled zombies who
think they are free citizens of a free country.

It is as if millions of our fellow citizens have fallen asleep, as if
they have become hypnotized and brainwashed by the powers-that-be's
incessant "managing" and "massaging" of reality. These powers simply
manipulate an already gullible and highly suggestible public into a
game of "divide and conquer." They get rich off of other's blood -
they incite conflict, and covertly support both sides, as they
themselves reap the benefit of the conflict.

The corporate war machine, which is co-dependently entangled with our
government, profits wildly from our invading other sovereign
countries. The government-military-industrial complex's solution to
the very problem that they created by instigating wars more war! It's
completely sick and totally insane. And we, in our dulled denial like
hypnotized sheep - simply go along and allow the whole parasitic
enterprise to be fed by offering our sons and daughters as fodder. To
the extent that we are not shedding light on the utter criminality and
insanity of what the Bush administration is doing and saying "No," we
are all complicit in feeding our own genocide.

Bush and our Congressional leaders are mouthpieces for the advertising
campaign of distortion and falsehood that is being "bomb-arded" into
our psyches on a daily basis. Our "leaders" repetitive slogans and
incantations brand and imprint themselves deep into our unconscious,
where many who do not have enough psychic resistance fall under the
spell. (please see Chapter 8 "Breaking Bush's Spell", in my book The
Madness of George W. Bush: A Reflection of our Collective Psychosis).
People's ability to discern truth from fiction has been rendered
inoperative by our own government's pattern of routinely taking
liberty with the truth. Government propaganda has inverted the
perception of what is actually happening, as lies are presented as
truths, and up is portrayed as down in a truly Orwellian universe of
confounding doublespeak. Through the "Big Lie" ­ which is based on
that the bigger the lie, the harder it is for people to see the truth
- the government has transformed myth into seeming fact, and has
achieved its goal of muddling our minds so as to dis-empower us.

Many of us haven't developed the psychic immunity to be able to fully
ward off the toxic effects of our government's covert, fear-based
psychological warfare. An expression of the success of our
government's psy-ops against US is the fact that there's so little
awareness about the government's assault on our minds that it's hardly
even a part of our national dialogue. The insidiousness of the
government's covert manipulation of our minds is even found in the
very term "Global War on Terror". "The Global War on Terror" is a
crazy-making, self-contradictory statement, as we can never stop
terror with a war on the contrary, wars induce terror! This term
carries with it a false and self-negating premise that if we accept
we've already given away our power. If we leave this underlying
assumption unquestioned, we unwittingly allow them to frame the agenda
on their terms. We have then already fallen under their spell without
knowing it, as our capacity to think and respond creatively is
undermined. Our inability to creatively respond to the war on our
consciousness is an expression of being immobilized in fear as if
frozen in trauma. The war on terror is really a war on our psyche. The
war on terror is ultimately about control control of our minds.

What Bush and our Congressional leaders are doing is so morally
outrageous that it is literally off the charts of accepted, "normal",
ethical, sane human behavior. In the words of French poet Andre
Chenier, Bush and Co. are committing "crimes that make the laws
tremble," as they are covertly undermining our very legal and
political system itself. The corruption that has infected our body
politic is like a virus that is exploiting weaknesses in our political
immune system so as to feed and spread its pathology.

Those of us who are somewhat sane can easily lack the imagination for
the depth of depravity that the Bush administration regularly acts out
in the world. Our lack of imagination works to the government's
advantage, as it allows them to continue to act out the darkness in a
manner which is incomprehensible to us. This is why the great doctor
of the soul C. G. Jung counseled us to develop an "imagination for
evil," as being able to imagine the scope of evil that human beings
can fall prey to and act out empowers us to see it clearly and thereby
deal with it more effectively.

Our government's lying and criminality is so pervasive that we have
become desensitized to their corruption. Their evil has become so
"normalized," that just like someone watching TV becomes numb and
anesthetized to the violence, we have become desensitized to the
horror of what Bush and his cronies are doing right in front of our
very eyes day after day. We've learned or, shall I say, become
programmed - to accept the fact that the Bush administration is almost
always lying, for, as we are told "All governments lie".


Bush and Co., with the help of the US Supreme Court and the approval
of Congress, rigged the 2000 and 2004 elections (see, for example,
Fooled Again by Mark Crispin Miller). Then, with the help of the
corporate media which is dependent on the good graces of military and
government budgets and operations, Bush and Co. put out mind-numbing
propaganda that no such hostile takeover had even taken place, to the
point where after a little while most people forgot that anything out
of the ordinary had occurred. The government's propaganda machine
plays with our minds, putting us in a somnambulistic state so that we
eventually begin to accept the version of reality (in our example,
that Bush has been "elected" to be our president) that serves its
underlying agenda.

Once the office of "perception management" convinces a critical mass
of people of a particular viewpoint, there is a "consensus" or
"agreement" that is reached among the masses as to what is objectively
true. The agreed upon version of reality takes on a "weight" and
becomes the established dogma of what is collectively imagined to be
really happening. Like a "religious" truth, it is irrationally
believed like an act of faith by its card-carrying members, even if
overwhelming evidence points to the contrary. Anyone who doesn't buy
into the arbitrarily established story is marginalized and demonized,
and either called crazy, a conspiracy theorist, or even a terrorist
("You're either with us or you're with the enemy").

If only one person believed the propaganda-created consensus version
of reality, they'd be thought of as crazy. If a small group of people
believed it, they'd be thought of as a cult. When a certain critical
mass of people irrationally believe this fictionalized version of
reality (in our case, that Bush has been "elected" by the people) to
be objectively true, however, they are considered normal.

Mass psychology then becomes the order of the day, as our species,
animated and inspired by fear which Bush and his regime are only too
happy to cultivate - reverts to the primitive psychology of the herd.
A collective amnesia ensues, continually fed by a self-generating web
of endless denial, as the manufactured consent is recreated anew every
moment. A field of force which literally resists conscious reflection
becomes conjured up around those who have fallen under the seductive
spell of the agreed upon and artificially constructed consensus
reality. Anyone reflecting back their unconscious condition is
considered to be the enemy. Dissociating from their own darkness, they
fight with it outside of themselves as it is projected into and
reflected back by the world. Believing the agreed-upon fantasy, they
collectively fall into their unconscious together and reinforce each
other's delusions in a self-perpetuating feedback loop, which is
another way of saying that they have fallen into a collective

Bush was not elected by the people. The military-industrial-financial
crime syndicate's minions and operatives had already insinuated
themselves into key positions of power so as to accomplish their long-
planned for covert takeover of the government. Some of their cronies
had already infiltrated the Supreme Court, where they literally
derailed the democratic process and decided, with no basis in law, to
unconstitutionally invest themselves with the authority of bestowing
the election upon Bush. Bush's seeming "election by the people" was in
fact a strategically implemented political coup d'etat. Very few even
noticed this act of violence because of the criminal syndicate's
control of the mainstream media. Their propaganda machine succeeded in
managing our perceptions just the way they wanted, which is a polite
way of saying they successfully pulled the wool over most of our eyes,
or pulled the rug out from under us without too many of us even

In a diabolical feedback loop, the underlying crime syndicate, by
putting out propaganda (that Bush has been elected president) creates
the very situation (Bush becoming president) which confirms the truth
of their propaganda, like in a self-fulfilling prophecy. Being in a
position of power, they are tapping into how they can shape the world
in their own image, which they are imposing on the world through
forceful means. They have in some perverse way begun to access how
they can seemingly manipulate and create "reality".

Because of their position of power, these sick few can control the
masses by manipulating events in the world, as well as playing with
our perceptions. They are tapping into how in managing our
perceptions, they can literally create events, and in creating events,
they can manage our perceptions. This is a divine secret, but in
tapping into it with an impure heart, where power is prioritized over
love, it is always destined for failure. In the end, these black
magicians will ultimately self-destruct, there is no question about
this whatsoever. It is simply a question of mitigating the disaster as
they create their own ruin.

Another example of our government's attack on our consciousness: After
the 9/11 attacks, there is only one thing certain the official story
put out by our government, itself a conspiracy theory, is not true.
There is no question about this to any thinking person who has even
minimally studied the evidence. (see, for example, 911truth.org). The
fact that our own government is not telling the truth to us about what
happened on 9/11, as well as actively obstructing any investigation
into what actually did happen, is a huge red flag why would our own
government be lying, and covering up their lie? Who knows (maybe the
shadow?) at this point whether 9/11 was a false flag operation,
covertly perpetrated by our own government against us, or whether they
knew about it beforehand but simply allowed it to happen so as to gain
political advantage? Something's very fishy about the whole thing. The
fact that our country, except on the margins, is not even having an
open discussion about what really happened on 9/11 the official
version put out by the government is blindly accepted by millions of
people as the objective truth - is another expression of our
government shaping our dialogue, both nationally and within our own
minds. The government's distorted story about what happened on 9/11 is
itself an expression of the deeper and more general underlying
conspiracy of our government to defraud us of the truth.

The last thing this criminal enterprise wants is for us to see what it
is doing. These criminal war lords want us to believe that we live in
a democracy. For example, in a diabolical sleight of hand, we are
given the illusory stage-show of free elections, while there is
overwhelming evidence that the elections were rigged. Even to be in a
position to run for president you have to be able to raise hundreds of
millions of dollars this itself is the entrance fee to the game. In
addition, the only people who would be allowed by these robber barons
to be in a position of power such as "Commander-in-Chief" is someone
they control. Barack or Hillary? It's an illusion of choice, a stage-
managed distraction from what's really going on. We are left with the
appearance, and a misguided belief, that we live in a government run
"by the people and for the people." In a very real sense, the
Democrats and Republicans are simply various factions who are fighting
for the right to represent the underlying military-industrial-
financial crime syndicate that owns and operates our government. Those
who control "our" government want to keep their operations covert,
beneath our conscious awareness. For if enough of us become conscious
of the evil and depravity that they are perpetrating in our name on
the entire planet, their gig is up.


The powers that have taken over our country will do anything in their
sorcerer's bag of tricks to distract us and keep up the illusion that
they are protecting us so as to maintain power. These banking and
corporate pirates are willing and more than ready to intimidate, buy
off, or destroy any and all critics. It is important for us to realize
the depth of evil we are dealing with here they are willing to kill
as many people as needed to accomplish their aims. It is shocking to
realize that the very entity that is supposed to be protecting us our
government is the very thing from which we need protection. It is
shattering to realize that our leaders are genuine psychopathic
criminals who are trying to take over our planet, impose full-spectrum
dominance, enact a new world order and centralize power and control.
Instead of this being a conspiracy theory, the evidence is all around
us, as it is everywhere we look if we have the eyes to see beyond the
carefully crafted and disseminated spell that is being perpetually
woven all around us.

What is happening in our world has more the "feeling" of an invasion
from a parallel universe than a physical coup d'etat. This is because
the intrusion is taking place on the plane of mind, and only
secondarily on the physical plane. If we could stop this covert
incursion into our minds it would be much easier to mitigate the outer
wars that plague our world.

These criminals clearly have way more power than we do in terms of
guns, tanks, media and technology, but they are no match for us if we
activate the inherent brilliance of our consciousness a force with
unlimited potential. Part of the spell they are casting is that
there's nothing we can do, that we are powerless to stop them from
doing whatever they want, like when Cheney mentioned it doesn't make a
difference what Congress or the American people want, this
administration is not going to be stopped from sending more troops to

The Bush regime's worst nightmare is for us to wake up to how we've
been manipulated, hoodwinked and played by them like fools. The last
thing they want is for us to access the natural intelligence inherent
in being consciously aware, and connect with each other through the
open-heart of lucidity. The powers-that-be's greatest fear is for us
individually, as well as collectively, to connect with our intrinsic
God-given power to create.

Once we clearly see what is being perpetrated in our name, we can come
together and "conspire to co-inspire" so as to awaken and mobilize
our collective genius, which is a power greater than any weapon of
mass destruction. In actuality, our connecting in shared lucidity is
the antidote to all WMD's it is what I call a WMC a "Weapon of Mass
Consciousness". It is what becomes activated when enough of us come
together and see (C ­ i.e., become conscious of) what is happening.

Connecting with each other is crucially important, as the more of us
that consciously associate with each other - as if re-membering
(putting our "members" back together to form a unified body) - the
stronger the field of unified force that we are able to generate. Once
enough of us sync up, we become more able to collectively invoke and
channel through our expanded awareness a power that is able to dis-arm
any WMD: the power of consciousness infused with wisdom and
compassion. Genuine compassion can be very fierce, however, as it both
demands and empowers us to come together and say "No" to the evil
being done in our name. We can step out of the fear-based reality in
which we appear to exist separately from each other in any moment and
consciously connect with each other through the open-heart of
lucidity. When we are truly serving what is best for the whole for
everyone a world-changing power becomes available to us.

The solution to winning the war on consciousness is for us to
RECOGNIZE the nature of the war we are in, which can only happen
through the agency of our consciousness. Realizing that the true war
we are in is an assault on our own minds is the expansion of
consciousness which is itself simultaneously the solution. From a
deeper, more expansive perspective, the war on consciousness is itself
the very catalyst and instrument for consciousness to awaken to

It is our turn to come together so as to render powerless these sick
criminals who have been terrorizing us.
We can help each other to
access our intrinsic heart-centered power and collectively turn the
light of truth upon them so that they have no where to hide from their
lies and corruption. For "truth", to quote the infamous Nazi Hermann
Goerring, is "the greatest enemy of the state." Bush and the private
interests who keep him in power and profit richly from his actions are
absolutely terrified of one thing - the truth. As the late Supreme
Court Justice Louis Brandeis said, "Sunshine is the best
disinfectant." Like pouring water on the Wicked Witch of the West in
"The Wizard of Oz", when the true light of awareness is shed on what
Bush and the real powers behind him are doing, their illegitimate
power over us is dis-spelled as the illusion it always was.

    Politicians make no difference.

    We have bought into the Military Industrial Complex (MIC). If you would like to read how this happens please see:


    Through a combination of public apathy and threats by the MIC we have let the SYSTEM get too large. It is now a SYSTEMIC problem and the SYSTEM is out of control. Government and industry are merging and that is very dangerous.

    There is no conspiracy. The SYSTEM has gotten so big that those who make it up and run it day to day in industry and government simply are perpetuating their existance.

    The politicians rely on them for details and recommendations because they cannot possibly grasp the nuances of the environment and the BIG SYSTEM.

    So, the system has to go bust and then be re-scaled, fixed and re-designed to run efficiently and prudently, just like any other big machine that runs poorly or becomes obsolete or dangerous.

    This situation will right itself through trauma. I see a government ENRON on the horizon, with an associated house cleaning.

    The next president will come and go along with his appointees and politicos. The event to watch is the collapse of the MIC.
