You Are Not Your Costume

Urgent Addendum to the Modern Slave Guide to Modern Slavery.

This is an important announcement. Time is running short and the Slave Guide needs to address a little-appreciated chain of modern slavery, namely costumes.

Humans are observers in a symbolic world, and modern slavery uses this against us. The slavedrivers have kept the ancient power symbols secret from the masses as their ultimate source of power, but they have a weakness: if we become aware how they are used against us, they lose their power.

One doesn’t need to be “illuminated” to understand that costumes are symbolic representations of social order. As a species, we are very attuned to externalities; as a culture, uniforms and other costumes condition us deeply. We do much more than wear clothes: we dress a role and play the part, because without the costumes there can be no play.

The play –as in theatre, script, props– is key to understanding the power of costumes. As humans, we are all actors in the great theatre of life on Earth, and as modern slaves we are also group actors in the sordid kabuki of modern democrazy. Actors come and go, what keeps the roles defined are not the people but the costumes. When a human puts on a costume, s/he puts on a persona, a set of rules, a specific part of a larger whole that is understood by the person in the costume and by everyone else.

Our love for dressing in meaningful attire is inherited from ancient tribal cultures. Even the Kalahari bushmen, whose normal attire is little more than a loincloth, have elaborate costumes for ritual use by the shaman which symbolize the powers of the bearer, granted not by the costume itself but by everyone else who is NOT wearing it. Thus the man wearing the crown is the king, but this power is bestowed to him not by the gold headpiece itself but by his subjects who accept its symbolic attributions.

That said, it is important to point out that despite our love for symbolically-meaningful attires, there comes a point where costumes stop being convincing on their own and require additional hardware to make them serve their true purpose. When the objective is no longer to invite others to participate but to coerce them into participation, the power of the costume derives from the blunt reality of force more than any symbolic whatever. A Roman Centurion in full battle armor was no doubt an impressive sight, but his power over others came from the blade of a sword, not from a free communion of human wills.

be very careful what you say about his costume...

Modern slavery has corrupted the art of attire to the very bone, turning our gift of symbolic understanding into a chain of opression. The costumes of slavery rule over us even when we are the ones filling them… but make no mistake, no matter how powerful it makes us feel, it is the costume that is using us, and not the other way around. Humans that don the attire of opression in any of its countless forms will learn that on the day of reckoning it is the human that must answer, not the costume. The “costume made me do it” defense only works in Jackie Chan movies and democrazy costume-based judicial courts:

Cop: Y’onor, I maced the guy to death because I was wearing a uniform… and he wasn’t, see?

Judge: From one man in costume to another, this makes perfect sense to me. The costumeless dupe must have died just to stain the uniform with slanderous accusations.

Cop: No, the stains are from the brass knuckle workout we gave him before the mace, y’honor. It got kinda messy…

Judge: Considering the heavy burden shared by men in costume, let’s just say he fell down the stairs.

To the men and women currently in costumes of opression, please hear me out. There is still time to step out of the costume and reclaim your humanity, but it is running out fast and it has to be done now. There is no middle ground in what’s to come; you either stand as a human or as costume, an illusion, a lie. You are not your costume. You are not a slave. We are human beings in the best reality show this galaxy has to offer, not reptile fodder. So screw them and their two-bit carnival charade and get out while you can, because when the play is over it’s not the costume that lingers, only how it was worn.

It takes a braver man to burn his costume than hide behind it.

  1. Sadly, most humans like to be controlled….they are not bred to think for themselves….critical thinking is hard work and humans for the most part are inherently lazy…and I like humans largely, but they are kind of like cows without the nobility…..

  2. The one thing that i remember the most clearly over the past 39-40 years of my school days at Brandeis University in1970’s are my student adviser’s words that when he was growing up that his grand parents and parents used the term “‘goyishe kup,’” meaning that the “Non-Jews are Stupid”

    Later in life I learned that the exact translation of “GOYISHE KUP” means that the “Cattle are STUPID”..

    I remember him recalling whatt his father told him when he was growing up in Eastern Europe. One of them being that when his father was in high school he and a group of friends would skip school early on Fridays and go over to his friend’s father’s butcher shop. That they would buy at cost any cows , that had not been butchered by the end of the day on Friday before the begining of shabat . They would take the cow home and wash it and then the boys would procede to “beat the udders of the cows so that they would swell up and turn pink” so as to sell them to the “GOYISHE KUP” as milk producing cows.

    The part that I remember him asking me if the East Europeans are so naive, so gullible and so stupid to buy old “non milk producing cows” from a bunch of young Jewish Boys.

    So thinking of it now I agree with the Jewish saying that the “GOYISHE KUP” are indeed” Stupid” as they believe that a Bunch of Arab Muslim Kids who were not able to Fly a Cessna Airplane took it upon themselves to FLY a Boing Jumbo Jet outwitting the US Military and Civilian authorities. The “Jewish Lightning Insurance Scam” of the 1960’s is still alive and well has been put to good use by Larry Silverstein with the help of his sayanim jews made a financial killing in imploding wtc by putting 15 million down and comming out with 7 billion dollars for buidings that no one wanted to buy because it would have cost a billion dollars to remove the asbestos from. Then on top of that the people in America actually believe that they actually decide who is elected President or for that that actual VOTE is really counted and makes a difference in deciding who represents them in the White House and congress.

    Yeh I agree that the AmericanNon-Jews are indeed American “GOYISHE KUP” or “STUPID CATTLE”!

    The Israeli Defense Firm That Tallies The Iowa Caucus
    By Christopher Bollyn

    The Iowa caucus is only a few days away and the nation’s attention will be directed to the results, which signify the beginning of the U.S. presidential race. But does anyone watch who tallies the results of the Iowa caucus?

    The Iowa caucus results were tallied in 2004 by a company that is headed by a man whose company was bought by Elron Electronics, the Israeli defense firm. I suspect that it will be the same this year. Don’t expect to see any grassroots political activists doing the tally in Iowa. The Israeli defense establishment takes care of that part of the American “democratic” election process.


    In the summer of 2004, I first learned that a foreign and out-of-state company using Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technology tallied the Iowa caucus results.

    The system used to tally the 2004 Iowa caucus results was provided by a company called Voxeo, which was apparently based in Orlando, Florida. (Yellow flag goes up in the mind of those familiar with Orlando and electronic vote fraud history

  3. The Videos of “The Customers of Walmart” showing the costumes of the indolent and decadent are perhaps the real writing on the wall. The “costume” other than a “uniform” depict the “self image” of the wearer. God Save America from its people’s projected Self Image.

    For them to become victims of the Banksters was a no-brainer. Sadly, the physical costumes of Wall Street are just as ludicrous.

    Slavery is too good for them. They need instant smartening up so the US can again make itself a Nation.
