How This Simple Educational Model Can Change the World

25th May 2016

“In the modern age of production and consumption, in the age of money and power, the meaning of education has become distorted. The Latin root of the word education – educare – means to ‘bring out’, whereas the present implication of the word education is to ‘put in’.” ~ Satish Kumar

America — and the world at large — is in crisis. From education to the environment and how we relate to one another, most would agree, something needs to change — and quickly. As overwhelming as this state of affairs can be, Satish Kumar, a former Jain monk, long-time peace activist and ecological champion believes we can radically re-establish balance to our planet and its inhabitants with one straightforward idea. The key to such a metamorphosis? Our educational system.

All Eyes Are On the Control Matrix

23rd May 2016

By Phillip J. Watt

Guest writer for Wake Up World

No matter if you’re asleep at the wheel of life or have awoken to not just the consciousness of reality, but also the corporatocracy that has hijacked our world, most of us are paying attention to our shrinking wallets, as well as the political circus. The system is in the limelight, but not how the power structure would like it to be.

The social engineering agenda of dumbing the masses into good little minions of the system has been highly successful, however too many people are now suffering and looking for answers why. Sometimes it feels that the alternative media gives them too much credit too, because it’s also been highly successful at exposing itself and therefore waking up people to their enslavement, as well as the lies, deception, toxicity and control matrix itself.

Could Official Accounts of History Be Little More Than ‘Mind Mush’ for Mass Consumption?

23rd May 2016

Who shaped most of what we call civilisation? “The Romans” is the most popular answer, but is this hypothesis based on any artefacts or historic chronicles? Not really.

In the older layers of the “Roman” edifices we see that same megalithic base-style is identical to that of the uniform huge “mystery” megaliths all around the globe (Peru, Turkey, Egypt, Cambodia, etc). As the layers get more recent, clear degradation of building techniques is observed, nothing to suggest that the Roman invented anything at all – just the opposite – and much like everybody else, they were the degrading descendants of advanced ancestors. Moreover, Roman aqueducts along with plenty of Roman artefacts are found in America, and it is strange that the Romans did not build their best masterpieces of architecture in their own “capital”, Rome in Italy.

Do we need to unlearn and ‘start over’ with what we think we know about our historical past?

The Information Carousel to Nowheresville

22nd May 2016

By Zen Gardner

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Have you ever felt like you’re in a wash-rinse-repeat cycle watching the news, not just mainstream but even alternative media? Much of it is just that, in effect, if it doesn’t draw actionable conclusions or serious elevation in thought and perception. If newly discovered or implicated avenues of personal as well as social expression aren’t pursued, what’s the purpose of pointing out the need for them?

Yes, information is crucial to awakening humanity from its disconnected slumber. But when the dots are connected and we realize we’re in a fabricated landscape of illusion, what then?

Internet Freedom? How Government Attempts to Subvert Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Press

17th May 2016

One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas. — Victor Marie Hugo (1802 – 1885), The History of a Crime

While sharp looking liars in suits transmit the state approved “news’’ readily packaged for public consumption, the American people are waking up to the televised lies and deception of the mainstream media. Recent attacks on the U.S. Constitution and thus on the people, have shaken many more minds out of the hypnotic trance perpetuated by the mainstream propaganda machine which falls apart when analyzed with the facts omitted from their scripts.

8 Signs the World is Undergoing a Paradigm Shift

15th May 2016

By Tim Bryant

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Browsing through history, it’s very clear that the world has undergone many monumental shifts that have uprooted our society’s very foundation in place of new seed. Though it might appear the opposite in the corporate controlled mainstream news, it appears that the entire world is in the very early stages of a paradigm shift.

A paradigm shift is a fundamental change in approach or underlying assumptions. For example, when Pythagoras proposed that the Earth was round instead of flat, the foundation of science and people’s understanding of the world was completely changed. Similarly, when the Industrial Revolution took place there was a complete shift in manufacturing, lifestyle, and economics. A paradigm shift can literally shake a society to its core, taking it off its current path and putting it on a brand new one. These shifts take place in many of the world’s most basic elements and redefine how life functions.

Here are 8 signs the world is currently undergoing a Paradigm Shift:

The Man Box and the Cult of Masculinity

14th May 2016

By Derrick Jensen B.Sc

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The man box is full of proof. Except that there is no man box, the man box can never be filled, and real men don’t need proof.

Let’s start with Abraham and Isaac. You know the story. God tells Abraham to slit his child’s throat. Abraham ties up his son, raises the knife, and at the last moment God says it was a test. End of story. Lesson? Abraham shows, by his willingness to violate his own child, the proof of his worth. And Isaac learns that his father was willing to kill him rather than act against the cult of masculinity — against the rules of the man box.

There are many rules of the man box, even though there is no man box, and there are no rules. Why call it a box when it’s the way things are? And why call it a rule when it’s who you are?

A Brief History of the Rockefeller/Rothschild Empire

13th May 2016

Guest writer for Wake Up World

“The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.” – Felix Frankfurter, Supreme Court Justice, 1952

‘Rockefeller’ and ‘Rothschild’ are two of the most common names discussed in the conscious community, and if you’re like me, all of the talk about them (and the so-called ‘elite’ families in general) has made you want to know more about what they’re doing and how they came to power.

In the interest of satiating curiosity, I’d like to look briefly at the history of the Rockefeller and Rothschild families and, in doing so, provide a glimpse of what these families did to become so powerful that they essentially own the government.

The Most Eco-Friendly Nation on the Planet is Now Carbon Negative

“If the Government cannot create happiness for its people, there is no purpose for the Government to exist.” ~Legal code of Bhutan, 1729

Lodged between two of the most populated countries on earth — India and China — Bhutan may be small at 700,000 souls, but it has a mighty role to play in showing the world how to preserve the environment, while also cultivating happiness in its human population. In fact, the Bhutanese believe that nature and happiness go hand in hand, that it’s impossible to have one without the other.

“Preserve our natural rich heritage do not pollute the surroundings. Remember nature is the source of all happiness.” ~ Drukgyel HSS

5 Solutions for a New World

12th May 2016

By Tim Bryant

Guest writer for Wake Up World

With the rise of alternative media, seeing the flaws in the mainstream media is quite easy if one knows where to look. It’s also particularly easy these days, thanks to the dawn of the Internet, to dig deep into history and discover that it has been completely misrepresented, along with the many forces behind it. As an alternative community, it seems the focus has been solely put on pointing out everything that is wrong in society. But what about solutions? It would seem that everyone is in this journey to change the world together. If that is the case, then it’s important to start focusing mass amounts of energy on the solutions to these problems rather than just simply pointing out the flaws. Finding the holes is easy; putting sustainable solutions in place is much more difficult.

This article aims to provide a brief introduction to real life solutions already in place.

Imagine a World with More Participation, Less Government and Less Tax

10th May 2016

By Makia Freeman

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Less government and less tax are two widely held desires by many people of the world, regardless of whether they live in overtly repressive regimes or supposedly enlightened democracies.

Around the world, we are drastically over-governed and over-burdened with excessive regulation and bureaucratic bullying from petty tyrants. As the Roman historian Tacitus wisely said, the more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.

On an energetic level, the preponderance of government cannot exist without the citizenry enabling it. It’s a codependent relationship; if you act like a powerless slave, you will manifest a harsh master, or conversely, if you already have a harsh master, you can tend to fall unconsciously into the role of powerless slave. We cannot expect to magically have less government and pay less tax if we don’t also do something to address the underlying balance.

However, there is a practical solution that is within the grasp of everyone: more participation.

The Business of War is the Cause of War

8th May 2016

By Ethan Indigo Smith and Sergey Baranov

Contributing writers for Wake Up World

If you objectively and consistently observe the mainstream media and its interpretation of global events, its omissive and deceptive character soon becomes abundantly clear. This could hardly be called incompetence. The coverage, which is popularly called “news”, is in fact nothing but a propaganda mechanism, designed to persistently shape public opinion in favor of war.

Although most prefer to believe government propaganda is a thing of the past, history shows us that it is an inherent part of any wartime society, obscuring facts and motivations in favor of those who initiate — and benefit from — war.

Who benefits from war?
