The Rat In The Maze

“And you read your Emily Dickinson, And I my Robert Frost, And we note our place with book markers, That measure what we’ve lost” Paul Simon

You had better start paying attention because you only get one turn in this thing called life, and if you believe any of the major religions your performance here counts for something. 

rat in the maze photoScientists can be extremely cruel, especially when they conduct experiments. Animals are subjected to the cruelest treatment by scientists. They are injected and subjected to vile poisons and diseases. Unfortunately, the experimentation isn’t limited to animals. There is the infamous Doctor Mengele who liked to experiment on human beings especially twins. Of course, there was the infamous syphilis experiment where African American males were contaminated with the disease to see how it would spread in their community. MK Ultra was another hideous experiment where runaways and others were given LSD against their will and their brains thoroughly examined. Which brings us to the rat in the maze.

The whole idea of the rat in the maze is that the scientist devises some insidious maze and places a piece of cheese at the termination point. The idea is to see how quickly and efficiently the rat can navigate the maze to attain the scrumptious prize. Once the rat has mastered the maze the scientist changes the parameters and the rat has to relearn the route. Let me tell you plainly, that you are the rat in the maze.

Thinktanks are a group of people with brilliant minds who are experts on some kind of subject. There are pretty much thinktanks that cover every facet of society. These men spend their time studying and thinking about their field of expertise. Much to the bane of humanity, these thinktanks aren’t trying to create a better world for all. Rather they are working at the bidding of their masters which are the rich or using the recently coined phrase ‘the one percent’. So, for example, they will study the Philippines and will determine which political and social actions that could occur will bring about the best results, where the best results are the profits of their masters. They will consider everything from military action to assassination to social turmoil, they will do any wicked deed that is expedient.

One has to learn that the world, to some extent, works by percentages. That is the whole idea behind insurance. The insurance companies hire brilliant mathematicians called actuaries. The actuaries study the data and figure out the odds. There will be x number of accidents costing y amount of dollars. The insurance companies knowing to the best of their ability the expenses then set their rates. Like the casino in  Vegas the house never loses. Sure somebody might hit the jackpot and walk away with millions of dollars but a thousand other suckers will go away empty handed. You might be unfortunate to wreck your car but the money from the two hundred safe drivers more than compensates for your payout.

Now the economy and other factors can be manipulated. In the United States the Federal Reserve, which is a private institution, exercises great power over our economy as they can raise or lower the interest rates. Other things have great influence, such as the price of oil or any wars raging. Now if one looks at the economy historically one will see that it goes through cycles. It goes from boom to bust. This is done by design. That is the people who control the world create prosperity and then they kill it. Why would they do this? The answer is simple, because of greed.

When the economy gets going good people get money. People are at work and they feel secure about their finances. With their newfound confidence, they will begin to buy things on credit. Some will make major purchases such as a new car and some will take out mortgages. Pretty soon you have a lot of people with mortgages and other depth. Then what happens is that the people in power destroy the economy.

What happens then is people lose their jobs. Many will not be able to pay their mortgages so the bank will foreclose on the properties. That way the banks get to acquire real estate pennies on the dollar. This directly benefits those who own the banks.

The laws are written rigged against the common person. Ever hear of an LLC or a limited liability company? One of the things an LLC provides is protection in bankruptcy. So if a company goes bankrupt then the owners aren’t responsible for the company’s debts. An LLC goes bankrupt and pays pennies on the dollars for a debt. You can’t go after the owners if they owe you money they are protected. This is how somebody like Donald Trump can operate. He had various LLC’s. When some weren’t successful like Trump Airline or his casino he can declare bankruptcy and not worry about his other companies. Contrast this to regular people who when they declare bankruptcy their student loans usually don’t go away.

When the plug is pulled and the economy is killed there is no guarantee who will go under and exactly what will occur. That is what the thinktanks are for, they set up the parameters. Some people will keep their jobs while some will fall into poverty. It matters little to those who are in control as they will profit.

What is done is that you are the rat running through the maze longing for the cheese. One day the cheese is simply taken away and all your efforts will be in vain. Remember the people who are doing this have infected human beings with syphilis and have given people LSD and hardwired their brains. These are the same evil people that engineered ‘endless’ war. They are the ruthless scum of the Earth who are selfish to the extreme. Study your history about economic cycles to check this out.

As always I promote a book. Please check out “Letting It Out” a book where I express ideas in poetic utterances. It is reasonably priced and excellent, original reading.
