Read the comments as well. I especially liked this: “It used to be that laws and regulations were put in place to prevent people from doing bad things to other people. Now laws and regulations are put in place to prevent good people from enjoying the fruits of their labor!”

    Although this document “The report from Iron Mountain” is touted as a hoax, if you were to read it you would find many of the plans, agendas and “crazy” conspiracy theories that were written about in 1967 is coming to fruition today. This leads me to question whether we are just being kept busy with the silly and adolescent issues such as who Anthony Weiner while running for the office of Mayor Of New York is showing his junk to or what Amanda Bines is setting on fire. It becomes more and more apparent to me that our Constitution has been usurped long ago by the power of attaining and hoarding and administering power. Exactly what the Constitution was formulated to counter act.

    “The Report from Iron Mountain is a book published in 1967 (during the Johnson Administration) by Dial Press which puts itself forth as the report of a government panel. The book includes the claim it was authored by a Special Study Group of fifteen men whose identities were to remain secret and that it was not intended to be made public. It details the analyses of a government panel which concludes that war, or a credible substitute for war, is necessary if governments are to maintain power. The book was a New York Times bestseller and has been translated into fifteen languages. Controversy still swirls over whether the book was a satiric hoax about think-tank logic and writing style or the product of a secret government panel. The document is a favorite among conspiracy theorists, who are either unaware or reject the statement made in 1972 by satirist Leonard Lewin that the book was a spoof and that he was its author.

    I am inclined to think that Leonard Lewin was not telling the truth, when you look at agenda 21, many of the things published in iron mountain are the same thoughts! When you read Atlas Shrugged and take a look around the city of Detroit, fiction becomes truth, Eric Blair, Ayn Rand were very prophetic fictional authors that about nailed what is going on with this society. Finally look up an open conspiracy by H G Wells, in it he says (and I paraphrase), that every 5 years, a person should show up before a board and justify himself! Nice people these progressives are.

    All of them are informed projectors of the future based on what they understood about the nature of the human animal. Part of the strategy is the strength of keeping people confused with a lot of information both believable and unbelievable, with both being revealed in time as being true. The more unbelievable the better.

    The public having and being limited by their moral perspective model, while “others” are executing models outside of that perspective that are several moves ahead of the public.
