by Gary ‘Z’ McGee, Guest Waking Times “I rebel—therefore we exist.” ~Albert Camus, The Rebel Dissent is a tricky subject. The need to rebel against atrocity is deeply ingrained in the human condition. Even if most of us don’t act on it, the impulse is still there, churning our guts with disgust, getting our hearts pumping, moving us to spit curse words in lathered fury and shout in angry defiance. The problem is that most of us don’t know what to do with this powerful and sometimes overwhelming energy. Most of us were raised in violent societies that use violence to keep the … Continue reading LIVE FREE OR DIE: THE PSYCHOLOGY OF REBELLION & DISSENT
image edited by F. Kaskais By Dr. Binoy Kampmark Never miss an opportunity in the security business. A massacre in Las Vegas has sent its tremors through the establishments, and made its way across the Pacific into the corridors of Canberra and the Prime Minister’s office.

by Sahara Devi, Guest Waking Times We are currently living in the most profoundly transformative time in the history of the Planet.

by Dylan Charles, Editor Waking Times By now, every possible angle of the Las Vegas shooting has been expounded upon by anyone with a website or a YouTube channel. Without a doubt, something doesn’t add up, but, we’ve gone through this before, many times now, and it never adds up. And it won’t ever add up, because the self-proclaimed authorities will never acknowledge contrary points of view. They’ll never publicly admit that the official story doesn’t jibe with the totality of facts and thoughtful observations openly available to anyone with an internet connection and a halfway open mind. And so we never come … Continue reading THE CHOOSE-YOUR-OWN-REALITY THEORY OF TERROR, MASS SHOOTINGS AND SPIRITUAL WARFARE
By Preston James, Ph.D If you are unfortunate enough to live in one of the many war zones or disaster areas, or one of the third world nations like Mexico or Guatemala, you are already there. … by Preston James It’s a very distasteful subject, one that is taboo in the highest American political circles, but it is a subject that needs to be honestly addressed and dealt with before it is too late for America and the whole world. That forbidden subject is the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia’s very secret Agenda to destroy all societies and create Hell on Earth. This specific … Continue reading How close are we to Hell on Earth?
by Buck Rogers, Staff Writer Waking Times What happens after death, no one knows for sure. It is a question of theory and imagination mixed with ancient wisdom and intuitive guesses. Most of us can agree, however, that the human being is a soul which lives for a time in a physical body. The soul feels infinite, and records of near-death experiences clue us into the possibility that some greater journey begins the moment the body dies. It may seem that the realms of science and spirit are at odds with each other, but when examining the greatest questions of human existence, such as … Continue reading 8 CUTTING EDGE MINDS ANSWER THE QUESTION – WHAT HAPPENS AFTER WE DIE?
