Noam Chomsky, Libertarians, and the Venus Project

If Ron Paul, with his Austrian economics, became President for the next 20 years, things would be much better.  Some libertarians even advocate a stateless, free market society, as advocated by some writers at www.LewRockwell.com such as Murray Rothbard and Stefan Molyneux.   I would be willing to try this for 20 years.  
But the reason why I am excited by the Venus Project (described below) right now is this: 
Even if we eliminate a corrupt government altogether, wouldn’t it still be possible for 1% of the population to own 40% of the world’s resources, as it does now?   Such economic disparity creates animosity between the haves and the have-nots of the world.
Eventually our survival on the planet may depend upon whether we adopt the ideas expressed in the Zeitgeist Movie and the Venus Project, which would neither be an implementation of the United Nation’s Agenda 21, socialism, nor communism (these models have elitist control, social stratification, and monetary systems of one form or another–all three conditions we should abolish at that point).  We can easily feed and house all the people on the planet in sustainable ways, and it is unconscionable that we don’t...
Our mainstream television media is owned by about six big corporations. Think of it as an arm of the government and the industrial-military complex, and maybe the pharmaceutical industry as well.  It is all about perception management.
When you see animated political debates on Fox News, CNN, or others, do not expect to see and hear any radical opinions such as from Michael Parenti, a thought-provoking socialist (I agree with his analysis but not his solution), or Noam Chomsky (considered by many of the progressive left as our country’s greatest intellectual).  These people have dangerous ideas not fit for public consumption, in the eyes of our corporate masters.
The wealthiest people and the most powerful organizations (many of them are international bankers and military defense contractors) finance both of the major two parties; they also finance and empower many of our incumbent federal legislators.  The bailouts, which started with Bush, were for the very companies who profited from us and hurt us the most.  
Under Obama, Homeland Security and foreign policy are still pretty much the same.  I say, keep the so-called “change.” Is anyone in government really concerned about the enormous national debt which we will never, ever pay off?   
... If the Federal Reserve keeps printing money out of thin air, we eventually will be paying just for the interest on the debt, not for government programs.  We truly need real change soon, but it is a change the Democrats and Republicans, the identical twins, are not capable of providing.  
For now on if I vote, it will be for a third party candidate.  Voting for the lesser of two evils is not a wise approach.  When we vote for a third party, we publicly register our dissent, which lawmakers and other citizens need to see.  Of course, all of this is true as long as the electronic ballots are not tampered.
Many people believe our country was actually hijacked starting with the Kennedy assassination.  The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has long been involved in the drug trade, which is how it gets money to do illegal operations that it does not want the American people or lawmakers to know about (it is like a government within a government).  
Essentially it is all about controlling the Middle East and the whole world for that matter to increase the profits of transnational (or mega-) corporations, many of which are more powerful than entire countries.  
It is unethical that our CIA covertly interferes in the affairs of democratically elected, sovereign countries by financing corrupt opponents, providing disinformation and smear campaigns, arming paramilitary counter-forces, and overtly sending in American troops, when the above measures do not work. 
We are told that various terrorists hate us because of our democratic freedoms.  The truth is they hate us because of our policies, our actions toward them, actions about which the American people, living inside a matrix, are utterly clueless.

The hemp plant, which marijuana comes from, just happens to be the most versatile plant on the Earth, the very best source for rope and paper and over 50,000 other household uses such as nylons and plastics.  Marijuana is the best treatment for glaucoma.  When the hemp plant is grown for food, its seeds have the highest number of amino-acid proteins, higher than any other plant.  Birds will always choose hemp seeds over any other type of seed.  Hemp could also be an excellent source of biomass energy.  Unlike the growth or corn and cotton, hemp does not need toxic chemicals or a lot of fertilizers to make it grow.  It would truly be a Green alternative.  
The real reason it was made illegal in 1937 (through yellow journalism) was that it cut into the profits of the Dupont and Hurst Corporations.  No one has ever died exclusively from long-term marijuana smoking.  Can we say that about the use of alcohol, tobacco, aspirin, and many other legal drugs? The original Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were printed on hemp paper!   And several of our founding fathers grew it. Much more could be said.  To learn more about hemp, you can go to www.norml.org or do a search on “Jack Herer,” the foremost authority on hemp.
Don’t expect high school students in our public schools to read The People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn.  Public schools are government schools.  How honest and critical can teachers, bureaucrats, history and government textbook publishers be when their livelihoods depend on sharing innocuous, or noncontroversial, opinions?  I recommend that we eliminate federal, state, and even township control of our public schools.  Parents could use the money they spend on property taxes to hire their own tutors. Teaching parents to be educated homeschoolers would be even better.  Now that I am retired from the public schools, I can be more honest.
Many believe there is a New World Order that is emerging—that is being influenced by the world’s wealthiest people, especially international bankers.   They are upper-echelon members of elitist groups like the Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, who control the Federal Reserve and probably the CIA.  September 11, 2001 has been the pretext to expand the stupid wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Patriot Act, warrantless spying on Americans, the Real ID, and imprisonment without due process.  
Our rights are being taken under the guise that we need more Homeland Security, presidential Executive Orders, and proposed Enemy Combatant laws.  The neo-conservative, shadow government elites who control our lawmakers, the President, and the corporate-owned, mainstream media, would love for all of us to have a microchip, implanted under our skin.  Then if we exercise our Constitutional rights, and share opinions that do not harmonize with their sinister designs, they can just label us “political dissidents” or “enemy combatants.”
Then all they have to do is turn off our chip, so that we cannot buy or sell.  We, the outspoken Americans, will be put in prisons like Guantanamo without a public trial when they classify us as the terrorists. This is how things gradually evolved in Hitler’s Germany. We must always remember that to have “freedom of speech” means we have freedom to engage in unpopular speech.
People may have to experience a world catastrophe before they become receptive to the need for having a truly free and fair world order (but it may be too late then), one that implements the goals and values of the Venus Project.
Some people say the Venus Project is just too idealistic or pie-in-the-sky, defying the so-called laws of human nature. But you could also argue that it is foolishly idealistic to believe that following our current course will not end in disaster.
No doubt there are terrorists in the world, but Al-Qaida and Bin Laden were first created and empowered by the CIA back when our government was supporting the Afghanistan “freedom fighters” against the Soviet Union.  I believe a new, independent investigation into 9/11 (not one done by government insiders) will shed much light on the way the world really works.  Not even counting the money our CIA gets illegally, our government spends more on the military than all the governments of the world combined, using money printed out of thin air, which causes inflation, a hidden tax on everyday people.
The real reason our government does not legalize marijuana and other drugs for adults to consume in the privacy of their own homes is the CIA would not get the enormous profits it gets by keeping such drugs illegal.  Legalizing drugs would make the prices go way down, and that would make drug cartels and the CIA very unhappy.  It was the criminal mobsters who were most upset when the prohibition on alcohol was uplifted.  For information about the CIA, do searches on Peter Dale Scott, a high level retired CIA Officer; historian Chalmers Johnson; Michael C. Ruppert, a former LAPD narcotics investigator; author James Bamford; and Terry Reed and John Cummings, authors of the book Compromised: Clinton, Bush, and the CIA.
Now to keep my argument consistent, you should also study the foreign policy viewpoints of Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, which I am forcing myself to do.   But right now I say, let us reduce military spending by about 90 percent.  We have American troops and bases in about 130 countries.  Let us find a way to reunite the anti-war, nonviolent, Peace Movement.  It disappeared when the military draft was cancelled after the Vietnam War ended.  If we did these things we would truly feel safer, resting in our beds at night, than we do now.  Our country could have a new image in the world, and peace on Earth would not be considered pie-in-the-sky.
