Quoting Gerdjieff

“There is an Eastern tale which speaks about a very rich magician who had a great many sheep. But at the same time this magician was very mean. He did not want to hire shepherds, nor did he want to erect a fence about the pasture where his sheep were grazing. The sheep consequently often wandered into the forest, fell into ravines, and so on, and above all they ran away, for they knew that the magician wanted their flesh and skins and this they did not like.

“At last the magician found a remedy. He hypnotized his sheep and suggested to them first of all that they were immortal and that no harm was being done to them when they were skinned, that, on the contrary, it would be very good for them and even pleasant; secondly he suggested that the magician was a good master who loved his flock so much that he was ready to do anything in the world for them; and in the third place he suggested to them that if anything at all were going to happen to them it was not going to happen just then, at any rate not that day, and therefore they had no need to think about it. Further the magician suggested to his sheep that they were not sheep at all; to some of them he suggested that they were lions, to others that they were eagles, to others that they were men, and to others that they were magicians.

“And after this all his cares and worries about the sheep came to an end. They never ran away again but quietly awaited the time when the magician would require their flesh and skins.”

    Let me tell you something that you all need to know, that nobody in Washington DC that works for “our” government can be trusted, and that “our” government wants this so-called “War on Terror” to continue forever so that the rich defense contractors can make money, we can be stripped of our rights under the “Guise of fighting this War on Terror” and so we will be in constant fear. People that don’t even understand the entire game plan are mouthing words put into their mouths by “Global Elitists” that include world bankers, politicians that do their bidding and others that believe the human race is incapable of governing themselves under a Democratic Republic.
