The problem with ideological fixation is how it intellectually neuters ones natural human, creative imagination, and empathy, it becomes an identity rather than simply an idea. One sees the troubles of society only through the prism of their adopted, dogmatic rhetoric. To be ideologically obedient is to neglect the experiences and ideas of others. Consensus becomes virtually impossible as compromise and concession are viewed as ideological failure.

The great work is of the soul, applying the soul to transmute ones life experience from the metaphorical base metal like lead, into gold. To be re-minded of the eternal nature of life, past the temporary nature of the physical, material body. That living through this human body is a temporary experience of an eternal conscious Presence..."As Above, So Below"

Take the time to actually read the Earth Summit document, then decide whether you think that it's intended for your enslavement and death. Take your conspiracy theorist endeavors to the next level and become a seeker of truth, stop listening to Alex Jones, Glenn Beck and other fear mongering youtubers, do your own research and thinking, come to your own conclusions.
