The Boston Marathon Bombing is definitely an act of pure "terrorism". Targeting innocent men, women and children in a highly visible and publicized way. Let just throw some random bombs into the herd pointless except for the fact that they will instill terror in the herd.
My first reaction hearing this had happened.. How, when and where... Was that this is just another "Same ole same ole" terrorist event from the usual perpetrators for the usual reasons. It certainly fits their "MO". It has their signature, stink, all over it.
Here is a simple exercise at self identification everyone can try. It requires that you warm up and get ready your pointing finger.
Is our pointing finger all warmed and ready?
You've all heard this expression... no? The "Duck Test?" It implies that a person can identify an unknown subject by observing that subject's habitual characteristics. It's probably safe to assume that it is actually and truly a duck.
Putting aside for a moment things like "When you assume you make an ass out of you and me", "You can't judge a book by it's cover", "Appearances can be deceiving", "Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see", and the outright hallucinogenic manifestations of the mind seeing and hearing ducks where they are not.. this "Duck test" does have merit to render a high probability, but not absolute, determination about what we are observing.
This, the "Duck Test", can actually keep us safe and alive when we are observing things like "Oncoming freight trains", "Paths that go over cliffs", "Guns pointed at us" and "Inside houses on fire".
Let's apply the "Duck Test" to US Inc., DC. That foreign bankrupt corporation claiming to be "our" federal government and examine their observable behavior.
My oh my the things that get to travel down my auditory nerves. This one.. "The Beatings..." ranks right up there, and to me is in the same category as, another sequence of words that favored my auditory nerves... "I lied to you because I wanted you to trust me!".
For centuries, millennia even, the human race has been divided into two groups. The rulers and the ruled. The rulers, Oligarchs, Illuminati, call them what you will, view the ruled, commoners, pretty much all of us, as THEIR livestock. They are Superior the herd is inferior. They have gotten quite experienced, expert, very very good at "handling" the herd. At this point today you could even say it is an exact science that they alone specialize in. Get the herd to do what they want them to do.
History tells us the herd is comfortable with this arrangement as it has pretty much always been that way. All hail the big mucky-muck bow and grovel in their presence yes Masta. Then when they leave "Phew what an asshole" and go on living your lives that has been allowed for you.
Apparently an equitable(??) arrangement till now...
