The end is nigh: Who will save us? Read this pamphlet: Salvation is at hand for those who will listen! For those of us old enough to remember the decades of the 60s and 70s, these messages will sound familiar.

It was during this time of love, peace and Flower Power (contrasted with Vietnam and the Cold War) that young people began to explore new spiritual pathways. They joined communes, often led by charismatic New Age emissaries bearing channeled communications of enlightenment. Originally these messages came from “ascended masters”, often linked to Tibet and Buddhist mysticism. While popularized by the likes of T. Lobsang Rampa (who, it transpired, was an Englishman who had never been to Tibet!) this fascination with Tibet goes back to HP Blavatsky’s Theosophy and her Western counterpart, Alice Bailey, founder of The Lucis Trust (her husband was Foster Bailey, political associate of Henry Wallace, the guy who put the eye and pyramid on the US dollar bill).
But many young folk were fascinated by the UFO phenomenon. Were benevolent aliens, undoubtedly more technologically and spiritually advanced than us, waiting to save us from our own self-destructive foolishness? Gurus and cult leaders were quick to catch on to this shifting paradigm, and restyled themselves as “Contactees”; emissaries, not of terrestrial immortals, but of advanced extra-terrestrials. George Adamski got the ball rolling, and many others followed. Some of these Contactee cults outlasted the 70s and survive, in one form or another, right up to the present day. Of course, the whole concept of not taking responsibility for our own mistakes and relying on “someone wiser” to save us from ourselves plays right into Socialist/Communist agendas, which always made US intelligence agencies highly suspicious of the true motives of these contactees and cultists!
Many of these cults, whether based on spirits, aliens, ascended masters or a combination thereof, have ended tragically. rather disturbingly, the term “containers” (see pamphlet pic above) is used to describe the empty vessel that is the physical body: A term that crops up in mainstream Ufology, especially the Lazar and MJ12 material. A worrying connection.
A prime example is the Heaven’s Gate cult. As one of the more recent examples, many will be familiar with this name, but I’m sure fewer will know how far back the story goes. It wasn’t always called Heaven’s Gate. In the 1970’s I remember it as HIM; Human Individual Metamorphosis. It was a textbook example of how these cults operated and followed a standard template.
HIM reared it’s head in California in 1975. The founders had curiously innocent pseudonyms: Bo and Beep, also known as The Two. Their message was simple: Time is short. There are three months until a spaceship takes off to “the level above human”. Apparently a physical ascension. As one might expect, one could only take this journey, and escape our doomed world, by surrendering all worldly possessions, severing all family ties, and joining the happy hippy commune. No TV, radio, books, nor any questions allowed.
Three months went by: No spaceship arrived, but Bo and Peep (real names Marshall Huff-Applewhite and Bonnie Lu Trusdale Nettles) were arrested on charges of car theft and credit card fraud. None of this seemed to deter Marshall Applewhite, who quickly reformed HIM under a new name and a new story. Heaven’s Gate, as it was now called, claimed the spacecraft that would bring salvation would be lurking within the tail of Comet Hale-Bopp (a theme borrowed from Tobe Hooper’s movie “Life Force“). This time, however, there would be no physical ascension. In order to board this Peace Train, one even had to abandon one’s body. In a much-publicized tragedy (or successful transformation, depending on one’s point of view) Applewhite’s adherents partook of the poisoned chalice and left their physical bodies behind.
Cults like Heaven’s Gate and a multitude of others are always, quite rightly, portrayed as a “con”. The price of admission can range from money and possessions to your very soul. Often the reason can be less material, and simply be one person’s ego and sense of power: Possession of one’s own little kingdom with a retinue of eager and unquestioning servants and disciples, ready to follow the pied piper and walk off the edge of the cliff.
This is bad enough on a small scale. But what if someone, somehow,harnessed all the New Age groups, many of whose adherents have political connections, and under some credible pretext, used the cultist template to convince the whole world that “the end is nigh”? That the only “fix” is to reject traditional family values, eschew worldly possessions, and join a communal dwelling? What if some organization managed to take this End-Times cult theme and take it global, backed by politicians, celebrities, religious leaders, news media and even scientists? What if they could get the majority of the public to accept the story and go along with the plan unquestioningly?

Welcome to the year 2030. Welcome to my city – or should I say, “our city”. I don’t own anything. I don’t own a car. I don’t own a house. I don’t own any appliances or any clothes…https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/11/shopping-i-can-t-really-remember-what-that-is/
In our city we don’t pay any rent, because someone else is using our free space whenever we do not need it. My living room is used for business meetings when I am not there.
