Phi Beta Iota: Conventional minds cannot handle the esoteric, in part because they have been dumbed down by really rotten educational systems that emphasize rote learning, and in part by social conventions that reward loyalty to idiocy over self-discovery and “branching.” We are seeing a convergence in “revelations” as more individuals achieve “hacker-like” open minds despite the Paradigms of Failure. Today we bring together three stories: Deep Secrets; UN use of climate change to achieve World Government “functionality” (an oxymoron); and the M-Fund in Japan.

This Article offers a new way of thinking and talking about government secrecy. In the vast literature on the topic, little attention has been paid to the structure of government secrets, as distinct from their substance or function. Yet these secrets differ systematically depending on how many people know of their existence, what sorts of people know, how much they know, and how soon they know. When a small group of similarly situated officials conceals from outsiders the fact that it is concealing something, the result is a deep secret. When members of the general public understand they are being denied particular items of information, the result is a shallow secret. Every act of state secrecy can be located on a continuum ranging between these two poles.
Copenhagen World Government
Here are two of the most troubling sections.
Page 18, paragraph 36 states the following:
“It should include a financial mechanism and a facilitative mechanism drawn up to facilitate the design, adoption and carrying out of public policies, as the prevailing instrument, to which market rules and related dynamics should be subordinate, in order to assure the full, effective and sustained implementation of the Convention.”
In other words, the bureaucrats and politicians will try to ‘buck’ the market. The conclusion from this paragraph is that the market will be “subordinate” to the decisions of public policy makers.
It’s central planning at its worst. If that doesn’t set alarm bells ringing then nothing will. But what about this idea of a ‘one world government’? That is surely the stuff of conspiracy theories. Not necessarily. It depends how you think of the formation of a government. But I’ll get onto that in a moment. First of all, here’s the text from page 18, paragraph 38 and 38a of the draft treaty:
“The scheme for the new institutional arrangement under the Convention will be based on three basic pillars: government; facilitative mechanism; and financial mechanism… The government will be ruled by the COP with the support of a new subsidiary body on adaptation, and of an Executive Board responsible for the management of the new funds and the related facilitative processes and bodies. The current Convention secretariat will operate as such, as appropriate.”
There it is in black and white. But don’t take my word for it, read it for yourself.

Japanese politicians plundered bottomless state fund
Senior Japanese politicians used a secret bottomless state fund to bribe opponents and help fund their election campaigns, it has been disclosed.
By Julian Ryall in Tokyo 15 Nov 2009
Former officials have come forward to describe a huge safe in the chief cabinet secretary’s office stacked with tens of millions of yen that they were able to hand out without providing receipts.
The fund was reported to contain Y1 billion (£6.7 million) but that figure has never been tested as no matter how much they gave to politicians the safe would always be replenished the next day.
Phi Beta Iota: The book by Sterling and Peggy Seagrave, Gold Warriors: America’s Secret Recovery of Yamashita’s Gold and our face to face interview with them at the home in exile away from the USA (they fear the planting of drugs and fast-track imprisonment in the US prison-slavery complex) 2004 Seagrave (US/FR) Interview with Sterling and Peggy Seagrave on Gold Warriors: America’s Secret Recovery of Yamashita’s Gold are the earliest and still the best documented expose of the secret funds in the Department of the Treasury that have been the basis for Rule by Secrecy, in which a small cabal of Rockefellers, Carnegies, Morgans, Bushes, and Clintons have been able to bribe governments (especially the post-war Japanese, German, and Italian governments) and manipulate markets. Goldman Sachs, and their perenial ownership of the Secretary of the Treasury position that makes the President mere theater, and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) a tragic comedy when it is not a doing rendition and torture. The good news is that the dikes of secrecy have been broken–free and open information is re-flooding the drained marshes of the poor (the Iraq analogy is deliberate) and the power of the public, armed with information, will inevitably triumph.
