An excellent article has been placed on the KSI forum (http://bit.ly/sb6ILE) - '14 signs that the collapse of the modern world has began'. Consistent with our holistic approach to training, we cover all topics that affect your lifes. Not everyone wants to be exposed to this, however that is none of our business. Our business is to stay true to our principles, and this includes teaching holism in life.
As a brief insight into this article, I have provided the 14 key points presented by this author, and a link to the article:
#1 - Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis –
#2 - The silence of the bees –
#3 - The failure of nuclear science –
#4 - The vicious pursuit of Wikileaks –
#5 - The rise of the medical police state –
#6 - The increasing frequency of food shortages and crop failures -
#7 - The runaway destruction of the world by energy companies -
#8 - The continued GMO contamination of our planet -
#9 - The tyranny and criminal crackdowns targeting real food -
#10 - The escalation of the counterfeiting of the money supply
#11 - The plummeting intelligence of the masses
#12 - The complete and utter fabrication of the mainstream news –
#13 - The ongoing pharmaceutical pollution of our world -
#14 - The radioactive contamination of the global food supply -
Of great interest and relevance directly to the physical preparation world (or more specifically the US-led fitness industry, in my opinion, were points 4 and 14.
#4 - The vicious pursuit of Wikileaks - In an age of such rampant deceit, there is no room for the truth. So those who tell the truth (Wikileaks) are viciously pursued as if they were criminals.
I have spend the last few years drawing attention to the rapid rise of deceit in the US-led fitness industry during the decade 2000-2010. My book 'Barbells & Bullshit' (http://bit.ly/vuwbM2) focuses on this, as will the book set for release during 2012 sub-titled 'lifting the veil'. I say 'If they are lying about x, what else are they lying about?'
Which links to the next points of relevance:
#11 - The plummeting intelligence of the masses - One of the most disturbing signs that we're already in the collapse is the great dumbing-down of the masses. The drooling, CNN-watching television zombies who dominate our landscape offer absolutely nothing of value to the world. They are the "mindless consumers" who get vaccinated, watch television and eat processed, pasteurized junk food. They're on psychiatric meds and believe everything the government tells them. Most of these people, of course, won't make it through the collapse.
I have been stunned by how unintellegient most act, or the absence of critical thinking. The masses of 'professionals' in the US-led fitness industry are being lied to repetitively and they struggle to see through the lies, continuing in their non-thinking role as consumers led by the interests of commerce. In fact, to create an atmostphere of acceptance, the masses are being told its okay to lie, cheat and steal.
There were a few more points made by this author in the ensuring discussion.
"Think about what's happening around you these days. These on our world. These are the End Times of the corporate oligarchy; the monopolare the signs of the last, desperate clutches of a civilization built on utterly unsustainable practices that don't value life istic for-profit corporation machine that destroyed everything in our world in exchange for a slightly higher quarterly earnings report."
This is exactly what I see the in US-led fitness industry - desparate acts by companies and individuals given power in return for their souls, acting in a non-sustainable way using practices that don't value the interests of the industry 'professionals' or the end users.
"In the quest for more money, humanity has sacrificed its food supply, its pollinators, it's oceans, forests and soils. Greed-driven humans have used other humans as medical experiments and cannon fodder."
In my yet-to-released book that will lift the veil on these practices, I ask are these the desperate acts of the end an era, where humans have become so desparate that the envioronment results in some companies and indivduals acting in unscruplous ways, more turning a blind eye to it or endorsing it, and the masses not knowing there is another, better way? Or the start of a whole new era of deciet?
Based on the timings of entering into 2012, I believe and hope that these desparate acts are the former - the last struggles of desparate humans as the era ends.
I am not the only one who sees the possibility of a existance that serves the interests of each and every one of you that may rise from this collapse.
These are the practices of a failed civilization... and one whose days are numbered. Watching it all crumble is far more interesting than watching it continue its destructive ways, of course, because those of us paying attention realize a future civilization must rise up in the place of this one after the collapse.
Some months ago I placed a Youtube clip of a prophecy by an American indigeneous man about the future. His words go something like this - I encourage you to watch the clip.
In conclusion, as I travel through America I know more of it's citizens are 'waking up'. I am not sure if the US-led fitness industry 'professionals' are this enlightened yet, however it will happen. I look forward to the day when education in that industry is based on honesty, not stolen lies.
