In the Crosshairs

There is a much debated document that warrants our attention if only because the nefarious ideas discussed therein are currently in place at various stages in our society. The document is entitled Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars and, as the name implies, it details a long-range plan to wage war against the general populace by underhanded and subtle, psychological means. Yes, it initially sounds ridiculous.

And yet, take a moment. Think about the television alone and what its steadily flickering images are called – programs. Think about how much programming the average American is subjected to. Think about the fact that in two short weeks many of those average Americans will be getting into holiday brawls just to save a few bucks on an even bigger programming machine. It’s the holiday gift that keeps on giving. Ridiculous? You’re damn right it is.

Back to our questionable document. It is roughly forty pages long and “was uncovered
quite by accident on July 7, 1986 when an employee of Boeing Aircraft Co. purchased a
surplus IBM copier for scrap parts at a sale, and discovered inside” the document in question, or so the story goes. There is, of course, plenty of debate as to its authenticity, but what does it say? What is its purpose? Here is a fine quote that gets straight to the point:

“It shoots situations instead of bullets; propelled by data processing, instead of chemical reaction (explosion); originating from bits of data, instead of grains of gunpowder; from a computer, instead of a gun; operated by a computer programmer, instead of a marksman; under the orders of a banking magnate, instead of a military general…”

Yes, that is exactly what we are experiencing. We are bombarded day and night by propaganda in one form or another. Our personal lives are willingly put on display on this or that social media platform. The banks own us, from the cradle to the grave, or should I say to the slave? Make a slip in your taxes and you will feel the pull of the shackles. Most of us won’t dare make that fatal slip. Instead, we’ll file all the proper documents by the dates declared. What does Silent Weapons have to say about tax day?

“A good and easily quantified indicator of harvest time is the number of public citizens who pay income tax despite an obvious lack of reciprocal or honest service from the government.”

Harvest time? Yes, it actually says that. To assert that we need tax reform may be the understatement of the ages. I love to imagine a furious mob storming the IRS headquarters, but such a thing does not exist in the United States. Why that should be is indeed a valid question, and the report given by the Grace Commission** is a fine place to start on a perilous quest for answers that will take one clear around the globe and back to Puerto Rico, where the brain of the beast resides. Curiouser and curiouser, so they say. That reminds me; our document has something to say about brains,

“Those who will not use their brains are no better off than those who have no brains, and so this mindless school of jelly-fish, father, mother, son, and daughter, become useful beasts of burden or trainers of the same.” *

Admit it. You have thought the same once or twice upon a time, and with good cause. We have, as a whole, allowed ourselves to deteriorate to a tragic-comedic degree. Turn off your televisions. Put down your phones. Disconnect. Read a book, something not assigned in government classrooms. RIGHT NOW. I do not care if you finish this article. Turn it off. This thing we call the internet can be a tool to sharpen our minds, and yet we have generally allowed it to dull our greatest weapon into a rusted and useless heap of near lifeless cells. We are caught in the web. Get out before you are fully ensnared and drained lifeless. Or? Or weave your own web, become active instead of passive. Use the web to expose the spider.

Are you still here? Then I will share another quote from Silent Weapons:

“The general public refuses to improve its own mentality and its faith in its fellow man. It has become a herd of proliferating barbarians, and, so to speak, a blight upon the face of the earth.”

Have we? Are we? Sadly, and to a significant degree, the answer is yes. This document is disturbing because it is right. Is it infallible? No. If you took the time to click on this short article then there is life in you yet. Do not concede to their programming. We can each improve our mentality and thus our faith in one another. We can be the barbarians at the gates without being a blight on the earth.

I leave you with one final quote. Take it to heart and never let them tame you.

“No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.”
~Samuel Adams

Rachel Summers
Known as the Dropout Philosopher, Rachel Summers walked away from the Ivory Tower, spent a year in a motorcycle mechanics program, and started research for her first novel, CondAmnation, in a local Harley Davidson shop. Her novels are what some have called a journey into antinomian mysteriosophy, where socially sanctioned morality is turned on its head in order to shake out just a few drops of enlightenment.

Summers holds degrees in History, Comparative Religions, English Literature, and Philosophy but ran afoul of academia when her dissertation proposal was rejected as something that might cause a scandal or, worse yet, cause the check-signing alumni to sign fewer checks. Welcomed to stay and write if she accepted a pre-approved project, she chose to leave and vowed to cause a scandal indeed, whether with pen or sword. She is currently writing her fifth novel as well as articles for the Revolutionary Conservative and Europa Sun Magazine; thus far, the sword remains sheathed. You can buy her books at
