THE STONED WAY OF WISDOM
Many years ago I read a text about what we think of our parents. It went something like this:
At age 5: ” Dad is a genius .”
At age 15: ” There are many things that dad does not understand .”
At 20 years old: ” Dad does not understand anything, he is already choking .”
At age 50: ” What a pity that dad died. I begin to understand some things he said to me . “
At age 60: ” The old man was a genius, what a shame I did not realize before .”
The message of the text I liked a lot as a child and I still like it, although now years later and as a dad, I see it with different eyes evidently. For any teenager, they are all idiots. That is a natural arrogance, fruit of inexperience, that we have all known. But this arrogance does not end with adolescence. When the Mexican team plays, everyone, from our chair, we are technical directors and we are sure that we would do much better than who is technical director of the national team. Likewise, with that same arrogance, we judge people who are in positions of responsibility that we have never had, and who face decisions that we have never faced, and it seems very simple. Everything looks very easy until you try it.
It requires the experience of the years, the errors, the consequences, and with them the inevitable baths of humility, to really assess the capabilities, our own and those of others, and develop a more objective perspective of ourselves.
Thus, in the best of cases, throughout life-of all life-that arrogance is being displaced by wisdom. But inevitably it is required to make mistakes, to realize the error, and to have the inner strength to rectify our perspective. And from there repeat the same exercise tens, hundreds, maybe thousands of times. The most terrible consequence of arrogance is that it prevents us from learning from our mistakes, because according to us, we are not capable of committing them, and then it condemns us to commit them again and again without end. Our arrogance is what determines whether throughout life we become wise, or permanent fools who just think they know everything.
I know much of what Emiliano said above sounds like word salad. But if you’ll pardon my arrogance, I think with the addition of a few bracketed comments, I can improve the clarity of Emiliano’s sentiments.
Many years ago I read a text about what we think of our parents. It went something like this:
At [mental] age 5: ” [my real] Dad [Vanguard] is a genius .”
At [mental] age 15: ” There are many things that [my biological] dad does not understand, [but Vanguard knows all].”
At 20 years old: “Dad does not understand anything, he is already choking.” [But it doesn’t matter, I follow Vanguard]
At age 50: ” What a pity that dad died [and Vanguard went to prison]. I begin to understand some things he said to me.”
At age 60: ” The old man was a [diabolical] genius, what a shame I did not realize before [that I can be just as evil as my papa and almost as evil as Vanguard.]”
The message of the text I liked a lot as a child and I still like it, [because I am still mentally a child] although now years later and as a [cuckold and a] dad [at least I think I’m a dad – and considering I am gay, it is not a bad accomplishment] I see it with different eyes evidently [I see it from my little one-eyed monster.] For any teenager, they are all idiots [and I remain one to this day]. That is [for me] a natural arrogance, fruit of inexperience [although I am opposed to calling gay men ‘fruits’ – it’s derogatory], that we have all known [and which I especially possess]. But this arrogance does not end with adolescence [No, Sir, I am hanging on to it forever]. When the Mexican [ESP] team plays [with people’s lives], everyone, from our [High Rank] chair, we are technical directors and we are sure that we would do much better than who is technical director of the [ESP] national [Mexican] team. Likewise, with that same arrogance, we judge people who are in positions of responsibility that we have never had and who face decisions [that will change the world and brand its women – a concept, as men] that we have never faced, and it seems very simple [just trick, coerce, then brand them]. Everything looks very easy until you try it [but let me assure you, branding hurts like hell].
It requires the experience of the years, the errors, [like botching the ‘K’ in the brand] the consequences, [such as being arrested] and with them the inevitable baths of humility [in the hot tub, when Vanguard couldn’t get it up], to really assess the capabilities [of how stupid women can be], our own [innate dishonesty] and those of others [who lie and swindle], and develop a more objective perspective of ourselves [which is that we were born to follow Vanguard, no matter how insane the directions he gives our lives and destroy other’s lives as far as humanly possible].
Thus, in the best of cases, [which is one where I am not indicted and put in prison] throughout life- of all life-that arrogance is being displaced by wisdom [or vice versa]. But inevitably it is required to make mistakes, [like smuggling cash over the border with women who are likely to testify against me] to realize the error, [of not filing false criminal complaints in Mexico against them sooner] and to have the inner strength [to use my father’s assassins] to rectify our perspective. And from there repeat the same [branding] exercise tens, hundreds, maybe thousands of times. The most terrible consequence of arrogance [other than life in prison] is that it prevents us from learning from our mistakes, [yes, we should never have kept the collateral on our computers] because according to us we are not capable of committing them [from the government’s possession], and then it condemns us to [prison where we cannot] commit them again and again without end. Our arrogance [combined with our criminal propensities] is what determines whether throughout [our criminal career we escape getting indicted and get] life [in prison, because the US Feds say “] we become wise [to your financial and sex trafficking crimes”], or permanent fools who just think they know everything [like the DOJ does, but believe me, if they knew everything, they would haul my ass into prison tomorrow.]
Imagine NXIVM in charge of Mexico.
That was the plan.
Raniere and Emiliano Salinas would take over Mexico in the name of NXIVM
Inside the NXIVM Sex Cult’s Secret Plot to Take Over Mexico
Catherine Oxenberg says that while gathering information on NXIVM, she discovered that Raniere was set on world domination—and had the Mexican connections to make his dreams a reality. Oxenberg notes that ESP had “garnered a big following in Mexico.”
“The group was composed of Mexico City’s elite, wealthiest, high-society types,” Oxenberg writes. “The children of four former Presidents of Mexico have been involved with ESP.”
“He had already apparently sent out members of his harem to seduce various members of law enforcement and public officials so that he could compromise them.”
“I received threatening letters from a Nxivm lawyer and a state attorney general in Mexico, accusing me of numerous felonies, including fraud and extortion.” Oxenberg later learned from court documents that the legal letters had been orchestrated by Keith Raniere and Seagram’s heiress Clare Bronfman, who allegedly helped bankroll the cult to the tune of tens of millions. She explained to The Daily Beast that,
The slave women of DOS, an organization run by Cruella Bronfman, Allison Mack and Lauren Salzman, were to seduce and compromise Mexican officials to pave the way for NXIVM’s conquest of Mexico.
A nation conquered by hookers.
Under the United States Code Title 18 section 960 it is a violation of the Neutrality Act for US citizens to conspire to overthrow a nation which America is at peace.
If Raniere together with the leaders of his harem Cruella Bronfman, Allison Mack and Lauren Salzman were conspiring to overthrow or SUBVERT the government of Mexico then they violated the Neutrality Act.
According to Catherine Oxenberg:
“He, Raniere, had already apparently sent out members of his harem to seduce various members of law enforcement and public officials so that he could compromise them.”
Neutrality Act of 1794
The Neutrality Act of 1794 makes it illegal for an American to wage war against any country at peace with the United States. The Act declares in part:
If any person shall within the territory or jurisdiction of the United States begin or set on foot or provide or prepare the means for any military expedition or ENTERPRISE…against the territory or dominions of any foreign prince or state of whom the United States was at peace that person would be guilty of a misdemeanour.
Every single time I see stills of them dancing for their Vanguard, I can’t get over how ridiculous they look and the fact that they took it seriously.
I live in Asia and often at our end-of-the-year functions, the colleagues are expected to perform skits and dances and whatnot on the big night and it is sort of a nod to the big boss or CEO of the company. Some of the workers take it very seriously and go all in, but for all the westerners it’s just seen as all in good fun and done for a laugh. We don’t take it seriously at all.
So to see the NXIVM crew in action… they just seem so, so lame in their earnestness. How can you dance for Keith Raniere and mean it? I want to point and laugh.
I don’t think there is anything I could ever see out of Emiliano Salinas that I could buy into his smug, thinly veiled, fake humility.
Especially after his ridiculous lies about how he didn’t really know Keith Raniere that well.
I guess he thought everyone would just automatically believe every word he said regardless of the overwhelming evidence that absolutely the opposite is true.
here’s the tl/dr
Raniere’s an arrogant fool who thinks he knows everything.
Emiliano had pretensions of grower wiser but was just following in Raniere’s footsteps.
All of this was very sage and deep, and y’all should be impressed with Emiliano’s weighty profundity.
and here’s a side order of snark:
Please tell it to the judge, Emi – how, in your non-arrogance, you have learned and grown wise from all your mistakes. Personally, sounds like Emi’s pretty slow learner!
These people take up camp and travel and start other various business. I never forget a face.. The Nancy face is hard to forget.
I know nothing said Schulz..
Face or far and often the system will rule for these maggot’s as a collective agreement to appoint them to sanitation on the Ty-d-bowl flush kit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qoqE6WmNz4
