How do you create a Prison? You Turn the Lights Off

As it is often explained, the success of a control grid relies not on the force it utilizes to impose or manage such control, but on the successful application of measures to gain unlimited control. What happens when you put a live frog in a pot with water that is boiled slowly, under low fire? Nothing. The frog won’t realize it is being cooked for dinner until it’s too late, until its flesh has begun to burn. The heat increases so slowly that the frog is unable to notice. The boiling water is similar to the system that globalists used for the past century to make people comfortable with rather adverse situations. The heat has been accumulating over the decades and we never realized we were that unsuspecting frog.
The desire to control doesn’t always come with rigid rules that violently impose a decision. The use of brute force is a tool of the past. Control is acquired over time, with lots of patience and by using a technique called Incrementalism. In the past, when men where freer no one questioned whether there was a need to keep freedom from being limited or eradicated, so a group of very smart powerful men decided to take advantage of the lack of vigilance and began creating a gigantic cooking pot to put us all into it and turned on the fire. Then, they began implementing a set of policies thought of and perfected many years before, and the passage and acceptance of those policies began raising the fire little by little. Every so often, a new level of control was achieved, which inversely meant less freedom for all of us. But that new level of lesser freedom wasn’t noticed by most people and it rapidly became the ‘new normal’. This scenario repeated itself over decades and brought us where we are today.
The frogs are almost completely boiled and proportionally only a few of them have noticed that their bodies are burning. Many of those awaken frogs chose to do something about it, but most frogs were still asleep. In the last decade, more frogs have waken up and now there are frogs all over the world slapping others on the face to show them that bubbles began to form under the water and those bubbles are already coming up to the surface. The courageous frogs have even dared to show the sleeping frogs the burn marks on their skin. But since the burning feeling has been the ‘new normal’ for a while, the unsuspecting sleepy frogs don’t think it is a problem to have burning marks on the skin. In fact, those frogs think the others who are warning them are crazy, because they complain about the burning, so they just go back to sleep while their skins continue to get redder and redder. For those frogs, perhaps it is too late. Other frogs have already been fully cooked, mentally and physically.
How did the powerful men managed to build those cooking pots around us, turn on the fire and let us cook without any major opposition? They raised the fire very slowly, kept us distracted and believing we were all as free as our ancestors were and even more important, taught us not to think about whether we were still free or not, or if we had lost any freedom, rights or privileges. Today, those cooking pots resemble not only the world, but the country we live in, the city, the neighborhood, the street where we grew up on.
The industrial era brought about development and that development allowed people to achieve a great degree of comfort and progress. But that state of affairs did not occur randomly; it was all calculated. For anyone who read history, it may be easier to understand the analogy of the boiling frog and how it all plays out from now on. Industrialization didn’t only bring progress and comfort, it also brought a lifestyle and that in turn resulted in previously thought out standards of living. People went from been free in their houses and farms, producing their food and enjoying family life and self-sufficiency to getting dragged into highly polluted concrete and steel prisons which became modern and trendy, so everyone wanted to live there. They were then given trinkets and technology, fashion and glamour to make sure they stayed inside the cities, even when that supposed higher standard of living suffered and decayed over the years under pressure because of large agglomerations, traffic and contamination. People thought they came to the cities to be better, because it would open the door to more opportunity. That is where all the trendies lived, wasn’t it? But that was not the plan.
The original plan was to make people like their misery, which at first looked like heaven. People had not come to the cities to live, they had come to work under tightly controlled rules. They arrived to the cities as part of a large experiment that if successful would allow the globalists to not only have people work for them, but to enjoy their slavery. And it worked. Most of the frogs are half-way cooked and they are loving it. A minority of the frogs that managed to wake up are adapting and preparing. The smarter ones already left the cooking pot by jumping out of it. They left the ‘reservation’ to go back to free lawn, the open backyard where they once lived, where their ancestors spent their lives, which is where they were all meant to be. As for the rest of the frogs, they will stay in the ‘reservation’; some of them fighting the boiling water while others continue to cook away.
Meanwhile, the globalist plan to keep us all in the prison cities continues. When people try to wake up and look around for signs of the prison in the highly dense cities, they don’t see it. They are looking for cell bars, barb wire and high fences. When someone says that there are concentration camps being built, people look around again in hopes of noticing the large open spaces with the guard towers, the loud speakers and the train tracks next to them. Again, they failed to see that the prison is their homes, their streets, their neighborhoods and ultimately, their city. The powerful men who decades or centuries ago sought to attract free people into their highly advanced, good looking prison cities achieved their goal to such extent that people can’t even see they live in them. So the system that is in place and the men that are in control of it decided that it is time to turn the clock back, as they had carefully planned. The cities people got used to love are now devolving and becoming what they were supposed to be: PRISONS.
Is it not easier to control people when they are tightly packed in densely populated areas? All you have to do is close the access to those cities in order to get control of who and what comes in and goes out. How does anyone transform New York into a prison? It is as simple as closing the tunnels and bridges. How do the controllers train for that? You take advantage of ’emergencies’ to implement the plans and practice for the closings as it happened on 9/11. How do you close the Washington DC metro area? By doing the same thing. But how about larger cities that due to their landscape or geographic layout are harder to close and control or cities that emerged back in the days of the industrial revolution where big factories and assembly lines attracted and employed countryside folks for decades? Well, you start by destroying their economies by paying the factories and assembly lines to leave. That will cause massive unemployment and people will have to depend on the government to live, feed themselves and have a place to call home. Then, when most people are in that condition, you start packing them up tighter and tighter areas by decreasing or eliminating services until everyone lives in a smaller, more easily controllable section of the once booming metropolis. Then you turn the lights off.
This is where many cities in the United States are right now. Perhaps the most deplorable of all of them is Detroit. A recent article by Bloomberg demonstrates that the globalist plan is well under way. According to the article, 139 squared miles of the city has 60 percent less people than back in 1950. Many areas have turned into decaying slums with no power or life, because many if not all people have left to parts of the city where it is safer to live. Other facts provided by Bloomberg are eye opening as well. For example, 88,000 streetlights are broken and they are not close to being fixed, because the city doesn’t have any money to do so. Residents of Detroit are now afraid to walk outside even during the early hours of the evening. The only solution that gained steam for Detroit was reducing the areas where people live. In other words, concentrating city dwellers in tighter places. Sounds familiar? “You have to identify those neighborhoods where you want to concentrate your population. We’re not going to light distressed areas like we light other areas,” said Chris Brown, Detroit’s Chief Operating Officer. But Detroit isn’t the only city that is turning into a dungeon.
In fact, the problem isn’t about a city or a few cities that are facing economic trouble and as a consequence are boxing their residents into smaller areas. Complete states like Illinois, California and Massachusetts are struggling to keep conventional life going. The lack of funds to finance a city or a state isn’t a casualty of the bad economic times we’re facing though. That part was also planned. Cities and states hide and mal invest taxpayer monies by having a double set of books known as the Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports. One set of books is for public consumption and the other is to manage the real finances, the money that is taken away or that disappears into black wholes, pet projects and nonexistent investments. The consequences of corruption at all levels is bad services, insecurity and poverty, which to many frogs (people) is the only possible option, so they decide to stay in the cooking pot (city). Those who have options leave to other cities or states, but the majority stays. Later, basic services such as police, fire departments, paramedics, water and electricity are made available to only a few areas, because it is too dangerous to send public servants to cesspit looking neighborhoods.
The plan Detroit has, according to Bloomberg is to “rethink the city” in order to reorganize it or reconfigure it with areas defined as residential, business, green spaces and agricultural. Much attention to the last area. Having agriculture in a city is not necessarily good. Food will be closer, but it also means people won’t even need to leave the tight areas they live in to get their food. Is this convenient or perhaps another ‘new normal’? Who will control the flow of food in a mainly government-sponsored prison city? Are dark streets and unsafe neighborhoods the new normal? How is it that globalists manage to destroy countries, their economies, their way of life and they are not called terrorists? Well, they did it incrementally. What will the future bring? Nothing better unfortunately, unless the rest of the frogs wake up immediately.
Detroit’s plan will not work, because it isn’t supposed to work. California’s plan will not work. Illinois’ plan will not work. And ff people in the prison cities open their eyes and feel the burning the globalists also have a plan for it. Police and Army on the streets will comfortably take care of it. They will do whatever it takes maintain control on behalf of their bosses. Mexican, Canadian, Colombian and Ukranian troops will join together to kill and destroy. With California reaching 36 percent unemployment and Washington DC almost 52 percent, it is hard to see how these and other states in similar condition will get any better. Right now, South Carolina’s unemployment is 31.2%, Rhode Island 29.8%, Washington 29.0%, Arizona 29.0%
Nevada 28.8%, Idaho 28.4%, North Carolina 28.2%, Missouri 27.7% and Louisiana 27.6%. Can it get any worse than this. Sure, and it will.
In the meantime, the US government has approved the National Defense Authorization Act, that allows the government to kill anyone it deems a threat to national security. They’ve almost banned free speech and public protest. The TSA are patting people down on major highways. The Army is on the road checking cars illegally. The government uses sound canyons against the public as the police isolates globalist gatherings in the very same cities.
