Sit Down, Shut Up!

The first chapter of my 2006 book, In These Signs Conquer:

Sit Down, Shut Up!
This is a Security Alert


Why is it so important to get everyone thinking the same homogenised and authorised thoughts? It is as if we are being barred at all costs from the mansions of our unconscious mind and the insights that these provide. Why are independent imaginative, original thinkers of our time ridiculed, side-lined or despised? Did the Inquisition really go away?
Is it a security thing?

What makes people rally around asinine personalities spellbound by their every utterance yet duck away from people who point out the crocodile in their living room? Does it betray suppressed sensitivity and individuality? Could it be a conspicuous confirmation of sought after compliance?
Is it a security thing?

Why are we being poisoned both surreptitiously and overtly, cloned, suppressed and spied upon? Why don’t we look upwards and inwards?
Is it a security thing?


Is life about being locked down and shut up? Where is the fun in that? Life isn’t about being safe it is about negotiating our way through an infinite array of experiences. As someone once said, we are not supposed to saunter up to the pearly gates, unblemished and immaculately groomed. The point is to arrive breathless, ravaged and knackered exclaiming, “Wow! What a ride!”


Where have the scallywags gone?

Take your mind back to when you were a child. Who were the most popular kids in the school? The beetle-browed worry guts and swots or the ones who always grabbed life by the scruff of the neck and came back with their tales of daring do often battered, bruised and smiling? Their childhood memories glisten like jewels and their exploits become the stuff of legends long after they’ve moved over. “Become as little children”. Remember that? Do you think Jesus was referring to the scaredy-pants or the mischiefs and daredevils?

Can you remember what it felt like to be a little kid? I can. I felt like my world was like a huge dream and I felt that I was really huge too. I looked like a little boy but I shone brighter than any star, like phosphorous and I was so big, a giant. My little grand-daughter said exactly the same words to me on her second birthday. “I’m big now, granddad,” she said, “Really ‘oooGE!!” as she spread her little arms out as far as she could reach. I wept a little, and I laughed out loud because I could recall when I could see what she could, and be what she was.

I can remember feeling as if I was in this vast transparent tube and I could easily touch the stars, everything around me glistened so brightly that it was like I was stardust. Rainbows flashed and fairies danced and everything seemed so perfect and pristine and wonderful and I was “Really ‘oooUGE!!” too. As I write this, even though I have been through the grinding mills of many heartaches, I can see it all again…and the tears come again. What a truly blessed experience is this journey called life.

I wonder what today’s generation of grown ups will be remembered for? Approving of evil by their silence and disinterest, their consent in all but name, I’d say. Children are braver than adults; they don’t know about consequences, they learn about them. A kid will naturally investigate and explore its world and it goes for what it wants and one of its prime objectives is freedom. A child has the right to be wrong and that is the most precious gift of a free being, a scallywag. What has happened to the scallywags? Where have they gone?

Adults forget that they were children once. They were just the same when I was a kid. “Bloody kids!” “Get up yer own end!” they’d shout. Then it seemed to me that the purpose for grown up’s was to stop kids having fun. I’ll tell you what though, wasn’t it much more fun when you could annoy them so much they’d chase you? Gave them a bit of proper exercise for a change – and you a sore backside from your mum or dad if they knew where you lived! And you really did get a cuff round the ear ‘ole if a copper caught you, but it was part of the game and you laughed later and you felt alive and you told your mates about it; and the grown ups would tell their friends…and you began to notice divisions. There was an us and a they…and it stayed that way until you became one of them. They accepted you then. It was usually when you left school. Now you also started to be a little impatient with kids’ ways because for some reason you wanted to be grown up and to be recognised as a grown up. You had to not be a kid. You had to do the things that adults do, go to the pub, dress smartly, walk don’t run, read the paper, and watch the news, go to work. You tried hard to put away childish things. Grown ups frown at adults who do the things that children do. Kids can hop over paving slabs trying not to step on the cracks. They can jump over shadows. They can run around with their arms outstretched pretending to be an aeroplane.

Children have tantrums when they’re being hard done by. Adults have to wait until they’re drunk or stoned to do these sorts of things. Then they’re in the shit (and feeling like it) the next day. Only approved fun allowed! No jumping over shadows here mate! Step with them like the rest of us. One thing always strikes me as peculiar is that the gender I think is least forced to abide by psychological societal strictures, less frowned upon when it acknowledges its intuition, is the same one that demands that men grow up. Yet it is the boys that don’t grow up, the rascals that women are attracted to the most – and then when they’ve got them they set about changing them. These confused attitudes cannot be natural; there is a battle going on somewhere between intuition and indoctrination. Sadly indoctrination usually seems to win the day.  Is it a security thing?

Conform…con…form…con…for…m…Are you feeling sleepy grown up person? G…ooo…d…You will do what we tell you…You will not do what we do not tell you…You will not notice that you are now an automaton…You will despise anyone who behaves as if they are free and independent spirits…Do not listen to them…Care only about what we tell you to be concerned about…

…Especially, Do not jump over shadows. You will stay asleep for…e..v–errr…zzzzzzz


Who said that!?

Those who lead us and bleed us are scared of us. They always have been. In their hearts they know that they do not deserve the riches, status and power they have. They are scared that we will notice and that they will lose them. So they close ranks and invent situations intended to make us believe that they do deserve their profits. Wars, terrorist attacks, other crimes, diseases and financial crises have all been pulled out of the bag when the peasants are likely to be restless. They pick their targets according to the designated and intended agenda. It is not within the remit of this book to detail all of the atrocious levels to which they have stooped and anyway there is already plenty of good information available elsewhere on this.

They are scared of something else as well:

“If you were in the habit of seeing such things in your bed as I see, you would not press me to go there.” ~ Queen Elisabeth (1)

“Be careful Paul, there are forces at work in the country of which we have no knowledge.”

~ Queen Elizabeth (2)

“Beware when you take on the Church of God.  Others have tried and have bitten the dust.”

~ Desmond Tutu (3)

“Rock has always been the Devil’s music.  .  .  I believe rock and roll is dangerous.  .  .  I feel we’re only heralding something even darker than ourselves.” ~ David Bowie (4)

The global balance of terror is a very delicate balance. It depends on things not going wrong, on mistakes not being made, on the reptilian passions not being seriously aroused.”

~ Carl Sagan (5)

“My definition of an expert in any field is a person who knows enough about what’s really going on to be scared.” ~ P.  J.  Plauger (6)

“I have been convinced that we, as an order, have come under the power of some very evil occult order, profoundly versed in Science, both occult and otherwise, though not infallible, their methods being black magic, that is to say, electromagnetic power, hypnotism, and powerful suggestion. We are convinced that the order is being controlled by some Sun Order, after the nature of the Illuminati, if not by that order itself.” ~ Duke of Brunswick (7)

“The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli (8)

“Truth is so hard to tell, it sometimes needs fiction to make it plausible.” ~ Francis Bacon (9)

 “The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.”

~ Felix Frankfurter

 “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” ~ Woodrow Wilson (11)

“…there is one that is unseen that can hardly be felt, yet it weighs on us. Whence comes it? Where is it? No one knows, or at least no one tells. This association is secret to even us, the veterans of the Secret Societies.” ~ Guiseppe Mazzini (12)

“Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.” ~ John F.  Kennedy (13)

“I must step away from this window…at any moment I am expecting a red dot on my forehead.” ~ Whistleblower, Dean Warwick, a few hours before he dropped dead in front of  the audience of PROBE International conference, only minutes into his talk. (14)

Yes, it is a security thing alright…

Their security thing!
