Healing the Self & Healing the World: The Open Source Way

Robert David Steele

Defence & Intelligence Norway

13 September 2017

Editor-in-Chief Note: The author was recommended by me, and probably nominated by a Norwegian Minister, for the Nobel Peace Prize in January 2017. I believe that he is redefining defense, economics, governance, intelligence, and society in a manner certain to benefit those that choose to embrace his vision of The Open Source Way. Here in Norway I am told at least one member of Parliament, and at least one defence flag officer, are considering how best to bring him to lecture across the Nordic war colleges, with the intent of making intelligence with integrity the foundation for Nordic national defense and prosperity going forward.

As a professional intelligence officer, I approach all challenges from an information-centric perspective. My approach to healing the self and healing the world is rooted in what I know about the corruption – the lack of integrity – across all information domains. We lack both intelligence and integrity today – it is not possible to produce authentic, truthful intelligence if you lack integrity.

Corruption, fake news, false flag events, lies, and misinformation impoverish the 99% while benefiting the 1% that owns and operates the Deep State as a means of control and legalized looting of the commonwealth. Predatory capitalism, virtual colonialism, and unilateral militarism including elective wars, regime change operations, false flag operations, torture & rendition, and drone assassinations all rest on weapons of mass instruction and mass deception.

Individuals are poisoned both mentally and physically – the food & drug complex is a deliberately contrived means of profiting by first poisoning people – to include the multiplication of cancers as well as obesity as a planned population policy; and the sterilization of women as well as the imposition of autism on young children – creating an endless cycle of profit for the 1% from poison and dangerous or ineffective medicines sold to the 99%.

At the same time, for lack of holistic analytics and true cost economics, every Western industry from agriculture to energy  to health to security to water management is easily documented as 50% waste compounded by the introduction of chlorine, nano-plastic, and other toxins to the environment. Furthermore, it can be posited that the Western economic and engineering paradigm is 90% profit for the few at the expense of the many – Dr. Marcin Jakubowski has demonstrated that The Open Source Way allows for the creation of all key Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) elements at 10% the cost of the prevailing Western paradigm that legalizes various forms of technical, legal, and financial crime.

Corruption – the corruption of information, the corruption of morality, the corruption of process – is the fatal cancer that could lead to what some call “the sixth extinction.”

There are three “cures” – all “alternative” or “natural” in character – that can heal the self and heal the world within the decade:

  1. Holistic Analytics
  2. True Cost Economics
  3. Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE)

Every public that desires to be free from want, free from tyranny, must get a grip on their information environment and demand that the craft of intelligence be practiced with integrity. There are two implementation aspects: first, the public must demand election reform, and second the public must demand that the economy, the government, and society be based on open source everything engineering. #UNRIG – a grassroots campaign – is the manifestation of a new populist demand for unity and integrity – the integrity of information, the integrity of self and society, the integrity of process that is authentic, inclusive, and truthful. Its goals include the termination of private banking in favor of public banking. An Open Source Agency in each country, combined with the #UNRIG application on inexpensive cellular devices and a free global Internet that cannot be censored or controlled, are the intermediate means by which we create a World Brain able to create peace and prosperity for all.

Information Pathologies and the Failure of the Craft of Intelligence

Corruption, fake news, false flag events, lies, and misinformation impoverish the 99% while benefiting the 1% that owns and operates the Deep State[1] as a means of control and legalized looting of the commonwealth. Predatory capitalism, virtual colonialism, and unilateral militarism including elective wars, regime change operations false flag terror operations, torture and rendition, and drone assassinations all rest on impunity achieved through weapons of mass instruction and deception.[2]

There are entire books dedicated to the information pathologies that allow the 1% to manipulate governments, economies, and societies.  Figure 1 offers just a few examples,[3] there are many more.

Figure 1. Information Pathologies

My second graduate thesis[4] concluded that the U.S. Government collects 20% of the relevant information, spills 80% of that in how it is or is not processed, and consequently is making decisions on the basis of 2% of the relevant information, mindful that many decisions are made based on “pay to play” and without regard to the facts or the public interest. My first graduate thesis[5] created a model for predicting revolution – the US Government still refuses to do holistic analytics on 90% of the elements.

The time has come to end this particular form of corruption, one that our capitalist system – dominated by private banks rather than governments or social organizations – fosters.[6] Goldman Sachs and other want us to be at an information disadvantage.  They do not want us to understand that wars, while very bad for all of us, are very profitable for banks. They do not want us to understand that poisonous food, toxic products, geo-engineering, and other forms of environmental degradation, while very bad for the earth and for all of us, are very profitable for the Deep State.

It merits emphasis that Mary Meeker has documented that we only process 1% of the “big data” that we have in digital storage,[7] and I have documented, drawing on the work of others, that published scientific information is 1% of what was submitted for publication, and that in turn is 1% of what is “known,” hence our scientific community is generally offering the public 1% of 1% of 1% — not at all satisfactory.  Figure 2 is a graphic I developed for Thomson Reuters to no effect. They are happy with 0.000001 as their “industry standard.” I find that appallingly irresponsible.[8]

Figure 2: Western Science Delivers 1% of 1% of 1% to the Public

It is in the above context that we must conclude that the craft of intelligence – the craft of decision-support – has been corrupted to the point of grotesque ineffectiveness. I will not belabor my forty years of speaking and writing on this topic,[9] but I will offer two graphics to illustrate the terrible betrayal of the public trust by both the secret intelligence world and by commercial intelligence and commercial information technology vendors. Their failures are deliberate and reprehensible.

On the next page I offer my assessment, validated by Stephen E. Arnold, one of the foremost observers of the information technology industry, of the abysmal failure to achieve a capacity for holistic analytics.  Figure 3 illustrates our complete failure – in the red – across six of the foundations for analytic excellence (half technical and half human), with two of the eight sectors being in the yellow. If this is the best we can do after centuries of so-called “advancement,” I must conclude that the information technology industry is in enemy hands, and their retarded offerings are most deliberately retarded.[10]

Figure 3: The Failure of the Information Technology Industry

As long ago as 1991 Winn Schwartau was warning Congress about our cyber-vulnerabilities.[11] 1994 was a particularly interesting year – I wrote the warning letter to the White House co-signed by Winn, Bill Caelli in Australia, and James Anderson, the top National Security Agency (NSA) computer-security consultant, then anonymous;[12] and in the same year, John McCarthy, father of Artificial Intelligence (AI), agreed with a number of participants at the Hackers Conference in California that Bill Gates and Microsoft were retarding the information technology industry by constantly migrating and mutating their Application Program Interfaces (API) to stop third party developers from advancing on their own.[13]

This brings me to the craft of intelligence, ostensibly the pinnacle of accomplishment and capability at the intersection of human intelligence and technical intelligence. Having been a spy for the Central Intelligence (CIA), having been responsible for helping the Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) oversee the technical intelligence agencies (as member of the Advanced Program Evaluation Group at CIA), having been the senior civilian responsible for creating our nation’s newest national intelligence analysis organization in 1988-1993, and having served on major national intelligence coordination committees including the Foreign Intelligence Requirements and Capabilities (FIRCAP) Committee and the Advanced Information Processing and Analysis Steering Group (AIPASG), this is a craft I know well.[14]  I know what it is supposed to be able to do and I know what it actually does. It shames me to have to say with absolute clarity that the secret intelligence communities of the world – and most especially those of the United States of America (USA) – have become criminal organizations whose primary mission appears to be that of spying on and then blackmailing their own politicians so as to protect their ever growing budgets. The degree to which secret intelligence organizations are engaged in running drugs, guns, cash, gold, and small children, all as off-budget profit centers, cannot be over-stated. Figure 4 illustrates my view of where we are and where we might be one day if we can restore integrity to our governments.[15]

Figure 4: The Immaturity of the Craft of Intelligence

Today the US secret intelligence community focuses on just two of the ten high-level threats to humanity generally and the USA specifically – inter-state conflict and terrorism – but not in a preventive way. As someone who has managed a false flag operation for the CIA, I have to say in no uncertain terms that I believe the US secret intelligence community – and the US military-industrial complex of which it is a very important but modest part – are the primary sponsors of unnecessary belligerency including direct support to Israeli efforts to destabilize the Middle East (including plans for a nuclear war between Saudi Arabia and Iran), destabilize Europe with false flag attacks – and also the primary sponsors of terrorism, from direct support to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) by the CIA[16] to the manufacture of over 200 terrorists and false flag events in the USA by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).[17] We can no longer ignore the fact that our government lacks both intelligence and integrity.[18]

Overview of The Open Source Way

Prior to discussing Healing the Self and Healing the World before concluding with some specifics on The Open Source Way, let me set the stage, with a nod toward Bojan Radej of Slovania who created Figure 5 as an interpretation of my writings.[19] By restoring integrity to governance and commerce – integrity rooted in transparency, truth, and trust – it is possible to reduce by at least 50% the cost of living, the cost of consumption, and the cost of production.

Figure 5: Venn Diagram of Waste Eradication Possibilities

I will expand on the three parts of The Open Source Way – Holistic Analytics, True Cost Economics, and Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE) – in my conclusion. For now let me just summarize: Holistic Analytics, by demanding that we address all threats, all policies, all costs, and all production alternatives in light of true cost economics and against the prospects of savings to be achieved with OSEE, eliminates both corruption and waste while harnessing the distributed intelligence of all citizens – we create informed engaged democracy at the intersection of community and information technology. True Cost Economics ends private banking, legislative theft and mis-management, the fencing of the commons, absentee landlords, prohibitions against marijuana and hemp, and the roughly 90% profit that is now earned by those who are able to combine impunity from oversight with the externalization of all diseconomies. Most of what we produce cannot be justified in the face of True Cost Economics.

Dr. Marcin Jakubowski, founder of Open Source Ecology and inventor of the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) is one of the greatest pioneers in the field of OSEE,[20] and is unique for his documentation, illustrated in Figure 6,[21] of the fact that OSEE allows for the creation of tools and structures at ten percent of the cost of the failed Western paradigm that relies on waste and legalized crime by commercial cartels – what Matt Taibbi calls “Griftopia.”[22]

Figure 6: Comparative Costs of Proprietary versus Open Source Tractor

The fact that we can raise the five billion poor from poverty at the cost of the failed Western model – the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs is completely correct to say that we need a post-Western economic model[23] – is significant to Australia, Europe, and the USA for  the simple reason that It could – in combination with an end to US taxpayer subsidies for dictators, Israel, and secret intelligence criminal networks – totally eliminate the illegal immigration threat that is now destabilizing the West.[24]

A new economic and engineering paradigm could accomplish the seventeen United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)[25] without the UN[26] and its 80% or more waste – and do so within ten to twenty years at a fraction of the cost of the failed Western paradigm characterized by scientific reductionism, a refusal to calculate natural and social costs (“true costs”) of Western goods and services, and a predatory legal framework that makes the sharing of knowledge prohibitively expensive.

More deliberation and documentation is required, but on balance I am confident that the five billion poor can be lifted from poverty, disease, and environmental degradation, from war and genocide and other atrocities, by ending information corruption, mobilizing the masses with ethical open source information, and terminating the present state of affairs in which 50% of every dollar produces waste, and 90% of every dollar is profit for the 1%.

Healing the Self

Individuals are poisoned both mentally and physically – the food & drug complex is a deliberately contrived means of profiting by first poisoning people – to include the multiplication of cancers as well as obesity as a planned population reduction policy; and the sterilization of women as well as the imposition of autism on young children – creating an endless cycle of profit for the 1% from poison and dangerous or ineffective medicines sold to the 99%.[27]

My understanding of alternative health models has come late in life, but I see clearly that not only can we achieve individual human health in the near-term if we over-throw centuries of industrial-era design explicitly intended to dumb-down and fatten-up the public, but we can also achieve life spans of 100 years or more.[28]

In this section I wish to make three points:

01 While individuals can heal themselves within our very sick economy and society by eschewing all liquids that are artificial including soda and alcohol and by eschewing all frozen and processed foods, it will not be possible for humanity at large to heal itself without destroying the food and medical complexes. To do that we need honest government that makes evidence-based decisions in the public interest.

02 Apart from the bribery and blackmail of legislators over centuries, a major reason for humanity’s ignorance and vulnerability to the food and medical complexes is the fact that for centuries there has been a concerted effort to repress knowledge up to an including the systematic murder of environmental and medical activists.[29]

03 Options are emergent. As a somewhat over-weight, older male finally learning how to heal myself, I am the least qualified person to make recommendations on how best to heal the self, but I have access to some very smart people and I want to offer three specific paths that anyone might consider.

  • Bravo Super Probiotic Yogurt combines the known health benefits of different products derived from milk fermentation. It is a harmonious natural symbiosis of active cultures and yeasts known to mankind for thousands of years.[30] This – combined with exercise and avoiding sodas, alcohol, and processed foods, is the “one stop shop” remedy.
  • Healing Plan in Seven Parts. Remember, the prevention is the best strategy. 1 Probiotics. 2 Vitamins and Minerals. 3 Good fatty acids such as Omega-3 (Budwig Diet and Colostrum for example). 4 Effective defenses against fungal/viral Infections and detoxification (check out Jim Humble, MMS, and CDS protocols for example). 5 Fresh water, freshly squeezed organic fruit juice, and organic food. 6 Avoid fluoride, chorine, conventional toxic household chemicals 7. Be informed and educated about health remedies and share information.[31]
  • elev3n is the new Global Platform for Alternative and Holistic Healthcare, providing a simple way to connect Clients with Practitioners worldwide. I believe they are creating a digital model that could extend to everything and be the alternative to Amazon.[32] They are offering single-point access to Acupuncture, Biofeedback, Chiropractic & Osteopathic Healing, Deep Breathing Exercises, Dietary Supplements & Special Diets, Energy Healing, Guided Imagery, Hypnosis, Massage Therapy, Meditation & Progressive Relaxation, and Yoga, Tai Chi, & Qi Cong (structured movement, self-massage, meditation, and breathing).

I want to conclude this section with a graphic I created for a health summit in Bethesda, Maryland in order to make the point that informed and engaged citizens are always the central element in any effort to achieve healing and health.[33] Figure 7 illustrates the complete failure of our government and our economy and our information ecology, to empower citizens toward healing and health. We put all of our money on Surgical & Pharmaceutical Remediation, and cover-up the fact that most hospitals and most conventional “cures” actually kill or disable more people than they heal.

Figure 7: Holistic Health Analytics

This Figure is a good preamble to my conclusion that emphasizes how holistic analytics and true cost economics must be central to all decisions being made by those who wish to achieve healing and healthy outcomes in the public interest.

This is not what we do today. In my view, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) are criminal organizations in constant betrayal of the public trust.[34] The secret intelligence community provides, “at best” 4% of what our leaders need for national security decision-making,[35] and nothing at all for everyone else (agriculture, economy, energy, health, justice, etcetera).

Thomas Jefferson said “A Nation’s best defense is an educated citizenry.” I agree. Our twin tasks as citizens are to restore integrity to our government and get a grip on all information in all languages.

Healing the World

For lack of holistic analytics and true cost economics, every Western industry from agriculture to energy  to health to security to water management is easily documented as 50% waste[36] compounded by the introduction of chlorine,[37] nano-plastics,[38] and other toxins to the environment[39] – never mind the deliberate geo-engineering[40] campaigns! Furthermore, as I posited earlier rooted in the work of Dr. Marcin Jakubowski, the Western economic and engineering paradigm yields 90% profit for the few at the expense of the many.[41]

Figure 8, from the World Waste Status Project[42] but not recently updated, is useful but deceptive. If the waste were calculated on the basis of who pays for the products being wasted, then China would fall to yellow and the USA would go to super-red. The graphic also over-estimates recycling in that it only calculates artifacts sent to recycling (but not necessarily actually recycled) and it does not provide for nano-plastics, toxins, drugs, and other permanent poisons that enter the air, ground, and water.

Figure 8: A Deceptive Depiction of World Waste Generation and Recycling

As shown in Figure 5: Venn Diagram of Waste Eradication Possibilities, it is immediately possible to reduce waste by changing how we live, how we produce, and how we consume. Corruption – the lack of integrity across all aspects of government, the economy, and society, is the root problem. The Open Source Way – once well known to indigenous native tribes – is how we return to a state of grace with Earth and the Cosmos.

Citizen Disengagement from Reality – How the Deep State Does It

Corruption – the corruption of information, the corruption of morality, the corruption of process – is the fatal cancer that could lead to what some call “the sixth extinction.”

The Deep State uses all possible methods to dumb down and disengage the public from public governance. These methods include the very deliberate exclusion of 70% of the public from meaningful participation in the election process (the USA example is below); the use of electronic voting machines where the outcome can be pre-determined before a single vote is cast; both a mainstream media skilled at “fake news” and a social media controlled by #GoogleGestapo[43], a censorship system so good that Eric Schmidt is trying to sell it to the People’s Republic of China (PRC); and the use of government funding as well as private foundation grants to subvert all elements of society, but particularly academic institutions, labor unions, non-profit organizations, and religions – all are “beholden to the Deep State  and its two-party enablers.[44]

Figure 9: US Political Landscape (Divided & Conquered)

As we consider the looming demise of the two-party tyranny to public awakening accelerated and deepened by the pedophilia disclosures, we appear to have an opportunity for an ethical and non-violent transformation, one that relies on Truth & Reconciliation to avoid violence.[45] This opportunity is present in all countries, not only in the USA.

Healing the Self and Healing the World: The Open Source Way

There are three “cures” – all “alternative” or “natural” in character – that can heal the self and heal the world within the decade: Holistic Analytics, True Cost Economics, and Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE).

Holistic Analytics

Holistic Analytics is nothing more or less than all threats, all policies, all costs, across all timeframes and in all languages, considered together. Generally holistic analytics requires leadership that understands the concept of a Grand Strategy, which is to say the ability to orchestrate intelligence (decision-support) with policy and budget decision-making such that we achieve peace and prosperity for all.  Anything less is neither a Grand Strategy, nor genuinely in the public interest.

Figure 10 is my depiction of how an honest government might approach the art and science of holistic analytics at all four levels of analysis (strategic, operational, tactical, and technical) across all policy domains, against the ten high-level threats to humanity, utilizing the twelve core policy domains.

Figure 10: A Holistic Analytic Model for US Government Decision-Making

This is not rocket science. It requires just one trait across the board: INTEGRITY.

True Cost Economics

In simple terms, true cost economics demands that all costs – economic, ecological, and social – be considered. That is not the case today, where banks and corporations are allowed to externalize all ecological and social costs (poisoning the environment for future generations, destroying communities by exporting jobs and employing illegal immigrants)

There is no finer scholar in this area than Herman Daly, whom I am privileged to know. His books and lectures are in my view richly deserving of the Nobel Prize in Economics – he has received the Right Livelihood that many consider an alternative to the Nobel.[46]

Figure 11 combines the dedicated research of Jason “JZ” Liszkiewicz[47] on the true cost of one cotton T-shirt – his research included telephone calls to factories in China and elsewhere – and my own vision for a hand-held app that informs any citizen of the true cost of any product they are considering.

Figure 11: The Fundamentals of True Cost Economics –Delivered to the Point of Sale

Until citizens arm themselves with information and use their purchasing power to demand that all products and services be held accountable for their true cost, we will continue to destroy the Earth, impoverish both the current and future generations, and ultimately foster the “sixth extinction.”

Such an information revolution will shift power from the 1% to the 99% in an ethical, non-violent manner. It will make economics, governance, information, and social engagement transparent. Once implemented, perhaps combining cyber-currency with cyber-engagement and cyber-intelligence so as to enable the earning of coin for engagement and telling the truth, it could be possible to create infinite wealth for the 99% while ending the corruption that today gives the 1% 90% of the existing wealth.

Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE)

Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE) is the logical extension of the pioneering work by Richard Stallman in Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS),[48] and my own efforts to promote Open Source Intelligence (OSINT).[49] When my business was destroyed by the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA), which stripped me of my clearances after I cheerfully declared, when asked, 7,500 foreign contacts, I spent my free time thinking and ultimately produced Intelligence for Earth: Clarity, Diversity, Integrity, and Sustainability, and The Open Source Everything Manifesto:  Transparency, Truth, & Trust. The two books together are the sum of my life to date. The second lists over 60 different “opens.”[50]

Figure 12, created with the assistance of Marcin Jakubowski and Michel Bauwens[51] – both heroes of mine – organizes the OSEE world into nine major domains, each with three priority areas for development.

Figure 12: The Nine Major Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE) Domains

In passing, I will observe that the “Smart Cities” initiatives are dishonest. They seek to impose 5G information technology on 1950’s constructs. Melissa Sterry,[52] uniquely, has the right idea: we must design cities as ecologies – as if nature were building them, with zero waste across all elements. I also very impressed by Pedro Ortiz and his holistic understanding of how to shape old and new urban area.[53] I have consolidated various writings on OSEE into a single volume, The Open Source Way.[54]

#UNRIG: Unity for Integrity – an Achievable Grass-Roots Endeavor

#UNRIG[55] – a grassroots campaign – is the manifestation of a new populist demand for unity and integrity – the integrity of information, the integrity of self and society, the integrity of process that is authentic, inclusive, and truthful. Its goals include the termination of private banking in favor of public banking.

The US Government (USG) today is a dishonest monster that legalizes crime among the 1% while criminalizing natural behavior – including the use of marijuana – among the 99%.[56] The USG is how the 1% loot the four trillion a year government budget and the much larger US economy. All this is possible because citizens have abdicated their responsibility to be informed and engaged and to hold Members of Congress accountable for INTEGRITY. The USG is also spending trillions – not only within the known budget but in off-budget programs including the secret space program – that are in my view funded by USG smuggling of drugs, guns, gold, cash, and small children.  I cannot over-state my fear that the USG is now the largest criminal organization on the planet.

Figure 13, ideas aggregated from many others (06 is my own idea), outlines the twelve specific reforms needed to restore integrity to Congress (in which case it would not matter who was President).[57]

Figure 13: Twelve Reforms Any Public Can Demand to Restore Integrity to Government

Creating the Earth Brain – Crypto Currency, Crypto Data, Crypto Voting

An Open Source Agency in each country, combined with the #UNRIG application on inexpensive cellular devices and a free global Internet that cannot be censored or controlled, are the intermediate means by which we create a World Brain able to create peace and prosperity for all.

If Donald Trump will not listen to me and direct the creation of the OSA (my highest ambition in life is to create and nurture this capability for the balance of my life), then perhaps it could be created as a genuinely independent public agency using an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) such as has been conceptualized by Humanitad.

Figure 14 depicts needed local to global capabilities that empower citizens with the information needed to self-govern.[58] Separately I have published a presidential decision memorandum[59] on the OSA and will note that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has twice approved this idea provided that the President or a Cabinet official ask for it.  Until today, CIA has successfully prevented that from happening.[60]

Figure 14: Concept for an Open Source Agency Enabling Trusted Public Decision-Making

Humanity can create infinite health and wealth.  All we lack is INTEGRITY.


Healing the self demands knowledge of alternative everything – as Jon Rappoport has spent a lifetime documenting, and as the titles in Figure 1 suggest, the entire system is “rigged” to provide citizens with false narratives and a false perspective on the natural order of the world.

Healing the world demands that individuals recognize that true power rests with individuals armed with truthful information and sharing a commitment to decision-making based on truthful information.

The 1% elite has been very successful at fragmenting publics, at distracting publics, at lying to publics, and at stealing from the public.


[1] Among several works on the Deep State, one stands out, by Peter Dale Scott, The American Deep State: Big Money, Big Oil, and the Struggle for U.S. Democracy (Rowman & Littlefield, 2017). It has been my privilege to elevate this term into the mainstream, primarily through audio-visual interviews across the Alt-Right media. What most do not understand is that the common understanding of the Deep State as unelected officials and corrupt party leaders is incorrect.  They are the best of the servant class. They work for those who bribe and blackmail them, inclusive of the City of London, Wall Street, the secret intelligence agencies, and selected foreign powers among whom the most aggressive is Israel. The Freemasons and the Knights of Malta – mostly good people with the best of intentions, have higher levels that are purely evil and in constant betrayal of the public trust. They take direction from the Rothschild Family and the Superior General of the Society of Jesus in the Vatican. There are other forces above the Rothschild Family and the Vatican that the public is not ready to understand. What the public does appear ready to understand, thanks to Pizzagate as well as the Franklin Scandal and Spotlight, is that elite pedophilia is both the “glue” that binds the Deep State mandarins together, and the Achilles heel of the Deep State. I am a Commissioner for the International Tribunal of Natural Justice and its on-going investigation into elite pedophilia, and am pleased to have written the Foreword to a superbly crafted book by Joachim Hagopian, Pedophilia & Empire: Satan, Sodomy, & the Deep State (in press). He is publishing the chapters as Kindle Shorts at Amazon and also free online. With permission my Foreword has been published at Amazon as a Kindle Short in the Trump Revolution Series. It is also free online.  See “Robert Steele with Alex Jones: The Three Minutes on Pedophilia that Top Pedophiles Absolutely Do Not Want Anyone to See…,” Phi Beta Iota Public Intelligence Blog, 3 July 2017, to access the three-minute compilation by the Tribunal staff, of my extended remarks to Alex Jones of InfoWars, on the subject of pedophilia as common among the elite of the American Deep State. To heal ourselves and heal the world we have no alternative but to dismantle the Deep State and end the scourge of pedophilia and legalized crime by governments and central banks as well as corporations.

His novel, Terminal Compromise: Computer Terrorism in a Networked Society (Interpact Press, 1991), foresaw the day when the National Security Agency (NSA) was behind most digital crimes; his second book, Information Warfare (Thunder’s Mouth Press, 1996) remains a classic.

[25] The seventeen Sustainable Development Goals are:

  1. No Poverty
  2. Zero Hunger
  3. Good Health and Well-Being
  4. Quality Education
  5. Gender Equality
  6. Clean Water and Sanitation
  7. Affordable and Clean Energy
  8. Decent Work and Economic Growth
  9. Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
  10. Reduced Inequalities
  11. Sustainable Cities and Communities
  12. Responsible Consumption and Production
  13. Climate Action
  14. Life Below Water
  15. Life on Land
  16. Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions
  17. Partnerships for the Goals

In my view the UN is an inherently dishonest organization completely lacking in both intelligence and integrity. There is no one in the UN leadership ranks willing to confront the fact that it is the Western combination of virtual colonialism, unilateral militarism, and predatory capitalism that is creating all of these problems; that the Deep State led by the Rothschild Family and the Vatican and their surrogates (e.g. Free Masons and the Knights of Malta as well as the City of London and Wall Street) and perhaps other allied Satanic forces are destroying the Earth and humanity at large (a “sixth extinction” is desired by the 1%); and that the solution is simple, inexpensive, and achievable in the near term: kill the Deep State, save Earth and Humanity.

The UN has done some good work occasionally. It’s best work in my view occurred in 2004 when it did something never achieved before: it identified and prioritized the ten high-level threats to humanity  that I list below, in  the priority order validated by LtGen Dr. Brent Scowcroft, USAF (Ret) and the other members of the endeavor. The US secret intelligence community ignores eight of the ten threats and the US Government (the Cabinet Departments and Agencies) is incompetent (or uncaring) about decision-support (intelligence) with respect to the eight being ignored.

  1. Poverty
  2. Infectious Disease
  3. Environmental Degradation
  4. Inter-State Conflict
  5. Civil War
  6. Genocide
  7. Other Atrocities (includes Pedophilia)
  8. Proliferation
  9. Terrorism (mass casualties, not individual incidents)
  10. Transnational Crime (excluding banking crime)

High Level Panel on Threats, Challenges, and Change, A More Secure World: Our Shared Responsibility (United Nations, 2004). A complementary work of extraordinary intelligence is that of the former Vice President for Europe of the World Bank, Jean-Francois Rischard, HIGH NOON: 20 Global Problems, 20 Years to Solve Them (Basic, 2003).

[26] Historically the UN suffers from three incapacitating conditions: first, the Secretary General has no authority over any of the Specialized Agencies (SA); second, only a fraction of the funds pledged are actually delivered to the UN for disposition; and third, like any non-governmental organization (NGO), the UN SA tend to consume most of the donor funds for their operations, delivering only a small fraction to the village level. Under the proposed alternative paradigm,  the UN and most NGOs would be by-passed completely, and each village would receive from their respective Open Source Agency (OSA) a combination of actionable electronic information and electronic banking credits, the latter as suggested in Ashraf Ghani and Clare Lockhart, Fixing Failed States (Oxford University Press, 2009). My review of the book, “Utterly brilliant on the half the author's understand best,” offers a summary.

[27] This is a secondary area of interest for me and not one in which I read deeply. Among a few books that hint at the scope of the problem are Marie-Monique Robin, The World According to Monsanto: Pollution, Corruption, and the Control of the World's Food Supply (The New Press, 2010); Jeffrey Smith, Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You're Eating (Yes! Books, 2003); Tara Mitra, POISON FOODS OF NORTH AMERICA: Guide to navigating the glyphosate mine field in our food web (Independent, 2017); Kevin Barry et al, Vaccine Whistleblower: Exposing Autism Research Fraud at the CDC (Skyhorse, 2015); DVD Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe (Cinema Libre, 2016); Byron Richards, Fight for Your Health: Exposing the FDA's Betrayal of America (Truth in Wellness, 2006); James and Lance Morcan, MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: The $ickness Industry, Big Pharma and Suppressed Cures (Sterling Gate Books, 2015). At the meta level the best book I have read on elite plans to depopulate the earth is Chris Thomas, Project Human Extinction: The Ultimate Conspiracy (Capall Bann Publishing, 2009). My summary review is 6-Star Fundamental Reference on Extra-Terrestrials, Illuminati, Free Masons, and the Satanic Deep State (Amazon, 31 May 2017).

[28] It is becoming increasingly acknowledged amongst the more advanced medical science professionals that our human biotechnology is designed to live for hundreds of years, and not merely the apocryphal three score years and ten. For anyone seriously interested in grappling with the emergent discoveries in biological science as it relates to innate human immortality, I urge you to keep a very close eye on Humanitad and their program launching early 2018. I have only recently become privy to this extraordinary ground-breaking initiative and believe it is set to change the world as we know it.

[29] Cf. Jason Daley, “Murder of Environmental Activists Reaches All-Time High,”, 23 June 2016; and Foster Gamble, “Who is Killing the Healers and Why?, 16 January 2016. There are over 18,000 independent police jurisdictions across the USA, most with relatively archaic information technology systems. The FBI does not appear to be competent at either collecting and collating data from these jurisdictions, or doing pattern analysis across jurisdictions. The murder of activists in the USA appears easily done, with impunity, no more of a risk than if we were a Third World country.

In my personal view, both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) are criminal organizations. This is why #UNRIG, seeking to restore integrity to the US Government, is so important.  More on that in my concluding pages.

[60] Despite twenty years of effort, training over 7,500 mid-career officers from across over 66 countries, the common sense idea of leveraging open sources and methods has not taken root anywhere, even in the face of compelling evidence that the secret intelligence community provides “at best” 4% of what a major commander needs and nothing at all for everyone else.  My three best presentations on OSINT as a strategic foundation for a Smart Nation are Robert Steele,  “SPECIAL FEATURE: Creating a Smart Nation–Strategy, Policy, Intelligence, and Information,”  Government Information Quarterly, pp. 159-173; Robert Steele, “Open Source Intelligence (Strategic),” in Loch Johnson (ed.), Strategic Intelligence: The Intelligence Cycle, Westport, CT: Praeger, 2007, Chapter 6, pp. 96-122; and Robert Steele, Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Done Right: An indictment of 25 years of expensive passive failure, Amazon Kindle, September 25, 2016, 53 pages, also free online in briefing form at “2017 Robert Steele: OSINT Done Right,” Phi Beta Iota Public Intelligence Blog, 7 February 2016. It is now known that the CIA has forbidden all elements of the USG intelligence world from engaging in OSINT as Human Intelligence (HUMINT), restricting them to passive OSINT, consisting of media monitoring. I now believe that CIA has been bribing foreign intelligence services to focus on citizen surveillance instead of OSINT, and that CIA has stopped stories about me and OSINT, notably an Associated Press (AP) feature and coverage in US mainstream media. OSINT is to spying as #UNRIG is to the rigged system.
