Intelligence or lack of it

Over the last century the world has been plunged into a morass of difficult and murderous campaigns all to ensure the ascendancy of a few at the expense of the many. A Great Spiritual, Political war has taken place, much of it unseen by many in the world . The capturing of all media outlets has prevented critical examination of the machinations of Corporate controlled intelligence agencies many of those who are gatherers of information and field agents are totally unaware of how they are being played. If they did have awareness then they would immediately see that their actions put their own families and nations in jeopardy . Below are lectures that explain much of the thinking behind many of the worlds most dangerous and socially crippling events. On the heavenly front the War has been won now it is time for people to become aware and to hopefully stop any further damage. Understanding and awareness sets the stage for a New and brighter time for humans.
