THE EYES HAVE IT

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Eyes were everywhere.

A German awoke trembling from this frightening dream during the 12-year reign of Adolph Hitler and rule of the Third Reich in Nazi Europe. Journalist Charlotte Beradt in her book The Third Reich of Dreams recounts the nightmares plaguing Germans, whether in denial or defiance of the pervasiveness of totalitarianism.

One Amazon.com reviewer wrote: “The book traces the ways in which the rising tide of Fascism infected the unconscious lives of ordinary Germans,skewing their dreams towards increasingly brutal and nightmarish reflections of the pathology of Nazism.”

Some of the 300 dreams Beradt collected discerned the terrible path the nation was taking but the dreamer felt helpless to change events. One housewife dreamt she ripped a swastika off a flag each night, but the swastika appeared on the flag again in the morning. Another German realized he was “inch by inch” raising his arm in the Nazi salute.

The Eyes collage is PDJ’s rendition of an imagined contemporary American’s dream as the U.S. government and U.S. corporations –- independently and together – spy on citizens under the auspices of national security and commerce. Concurrently, tactics copied from Hitler’s Fascist Germany –- fear, omnipresent surveillance, aggression against sovereign nations – and the parlance of fascism – homeland, patriot –- consume U.S. politics, policies, and culture.

PORTRAIT OF A PRESIDENT

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

After the election, I dreamt of a grinning Barack Obama as Commander-in-Chief. He was wearing a military uniform, like a South American dictator.

Every dream about him — before, during, and after the election — was about war. I fear there will never be peace in my lifetime.

A Just and Lasting Peace (through War)

Is a smiling Barack Obama, Commander-in-Chief, the friendly face of a U.S. military empire? Is a smiling Barack Obama, Commander-in-Chief, the friendly face of a global military dictatorship?

Totalitarian rulers — dictators –- assert authority and create intimidation clad in pompous military uniforms adorned with medals and ribbons, signifying conquest. Whether installed in a rigged election or a bloody military coup d’ etat, the message is the same: I control the military. I have the force of the military with me, against you.

Whether politically right or left, dictators repress political opponents and their own citizens, surging or revolting to reclaim their country. Dictatorial leaders use spying, repression of civil liberties, and brutal paramilitary tactics like kidnapping, torture, death squads, and assassinations to retain their power.

The U.S. Constitution establishes civilian control of the military. An American president scorns military garb (unless he is G.W. Bush dressed up in a codpiece and faux flight jacket).

Dreams, nighttime messengers, reveal hidden truths. These morning glories confer insight. They wake us, the citizenry, duped by media, moguls, and monarchs to authentic facts. They empower us to recognize the truthfulness of a candidate who promises change you can believe in.

To understand what the Portrait of a President dream reveals about U.S. President Barack Obama, let’s examine the details, where meaning resides.

Action One
A personal psych-op

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Ten political actions derived from dream guidance intended to instigate positive political change are vital to DREAM VERITAS! PDJ’s year-long commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

ACTION 1/10:

al-Qaeda = CIA

When you read a story in The New York Times or hear a report on CNN attributing 9/11 to al-Qaeda, instead say/think “CIA.”

Notice how this simple mind game reflects and counters the psychological conditioning of the unwavering government/media narrative foisted on the world within a half hour of the first plane crashing into the World Trade Center.

This action is inspired by Lori Price, editor of the Center for Legitimate Government’s news digest CLG News. After the phrase “al Qaeda” in a news story, she writes: {al-CIAduh}.

Try the simple tactic saying/thinking “CIA” whenever you see/hear a news source attributing a terrorist attack to  al-Qaeda. It’s your personal psych-op, opening — rather than closing — the mind to veracity.
