Analyzing the 7 Stages of Grief Amidst 2015's Doom and Gloom Events

With US Empire a possible culprit behind the massive Tianjin explosions, the ongoing currency and cyber wars with China are now escalating to potential military war. China or Russia’s potent electromagnetic pulse weapons could destroy America’s electrical power grid making our nation an increasingly vulnerable target. Even an ISIS invasion with its US gifted missiles (while fighting as US mercenaries against Assad’s Syrian forces) could take out the power grid. In an instant this could end life as we know it in America, killing 90% of US citizens within the short time of just one year. A buildup of Russian troop movement along the Eastern Ukraine border in response to the US-NATO-mercenary-Nazi coalition is presently converging with Kiev forces moving eastward for what could become an epic military showdown with both the Russian rebels alongside the Russia army.
 
South and North Korean military forces just exchanged artillery fire during the latest annual US-South Korean war games joined by over a half dozen other Western nations after North Korea threatened to attack mainland US should joint exercises go forward. Are all these near daily developments and confrontations bringing the already simmering East-West tensions to boil over into all-out war in Asia? As ISIS just blew up Syria’s ancient Roman temple in Palmyra, its control only seems to be spreading in Syria and Iraq. The Islamic State scourge is rapidly expanding its US created and supported savagery into Ukraine, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Yemen, Libya, Somalia and deeper into sub-Saharan Africa in partnership with Boko Harem and al-Shabaab. It appears that world conflict between the US-led West in methodic acceleration of aggression to isolate Russia and China now have the entire planet on the brink of nuclear world war.


Meanwhile, the globalists as personified by such public faces as MSM’s revered war criminal Henry Kissinger have stacked the deck to poison the playing field for emergence of their New World Order now reaching fruition after centuries of successfully plotting nonstop wars and rigging a debt-based economy that’s become a house of cards Ponzi scam currently collapsing right before our eyes. As a once great nation, America, especially with the NWO’s TPP calling card, is now reduced to the end of its line as a sovereign nation and now faces death. The global elite has diabolically misused its power to centralize absolute control over the global masses through invasive technological surveillance, undermining constitutional rule of law and civil liberties, inflicting an insidious and pervasive dumbing down of the American population in particular and been busily executing grand theft planet in every corner and continent on earth.


While Americans have been preoccupied with the Kardashians’ latest wardrobe mishap or transformation of their transgendered ex-father-in-law Bruce into Kaitlin, or their electronic addiction to their latest button-pushing pleasure toys, or the mass distraction marveling over super star athletes as modern day gladiators, or mesmerized into idol worship by intoxicating hidden messages of superstar royalty atop the entertainment industries puppeteered by their demonic Satanic handlers, the masses have been lulled fast asleep by sleight of hand dark forces controlled by a sub-human species of ruling psychopaths that have hijacked humanity and plundered and desecrated the earth. So now we as a dying nation and potentially dying species face the cataclysmic consequences of our past shortcomings and misguided follies.  


Psychologist Elizabeth Kubler-Ross in her seminal book On Death and Dying came up with her five original stages of grief and loss that those facing impending death often go through. The five stages have since been expanded to seven. This concept of defining emotions as stages that are part of the end of life journey or cyclical process can easily be extended to apply beyond terminally ill individuals to terminally ill nations and civilizations as well. A growing consensus has emerged in recent years that the United States is reaching its final days as a once great, seemingly blessed power on earth that most Americans grew up patriotically loving for its “international benevolence,” and its unsurpassed opulence and abundance taken so much for granted. Like England before it, the US reigned supreme on the world stage for more than a century. For the last quarter century the US unilaterally made its Empire mark by thoroughly exploiting the rest of the world during its claimed status as the world’s only superpower. And now it appears that karma's finally caught up to the murderous Empire machine. Uncle Sam's been stripped naked, now morally and financially bankrupt, yet still frantically pushing hegemonic levers behind an Oz-like curtain that fully exposes his paper thin, fiat toilet papered, torpedoed economy. 


But as long as the truth be known, long prior to even the JFK assassination, US Empire’s globalist handlers had already infiltrated and taken over Washington to become the international crime syndicate we're stuck with today. Since 1921 the most visible band of thieves pulling the hegemonic Empire levers have been Council on Foreign Relations members entrenched as US presidents and cabinet advisors. And just as the globalist agenda has been to methodically infuse corporate power over the US federal government, the one global crime cabal Gov.Corps now running the world has expanded far beyond Washington to include Tel Aviv, Brussels (the European Union and NATO), the Middle Eastern puppet allies Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the Gulf state monarchies as well as Asian puppet allies Japan and South Korea along with old standby Anglo allies Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Globalist controllers of the ill-fated Western world now appear to be acting as suicide bombers, poking, prodding, baiting and aggressing nations of the East in Russia, China, North Korea, Syria and Iran (despite the recent nuke agreement) into World War III carnage with a nuclear endgame scenario that could spell the end of all life on planet earth. As such, many of us inhabiting the globe who do not have the elitist means to a subterranean contingency plan to wait out and survive the human genocide taking place on the dying surface of this planet may also be either consciously or unconsciously undergoing any or all of the grief stages of impending death.


This presentation will systematically analyze these seven stages of grief as they apply to all the not-so- dumbed-down humans currently in the throes of reeling like never before from the daily and weekly forces of destruction gripping our turbulent and chaotic, ever-changing rarely for the better planet of ours. These seven stages are 1) shock and disbelief, 2) denial and isolation, 3) anger, 4) bargaining, 5) guilt, 6) depression and 7) acceptance. Keep in mind that these so called stages are not set in stone. They are postulated to “loosely” apply to humans undergoing the grieving process as they approach death but there is no concrete scientific evidence that all humans move through discrete, sequentially ordered steps nor do they carry any universal application. Indeed not even in Kubler-Ross’ own studies did her patients experience the same five stages in one through five order. It’s just a recognized hypothetical construct or template for observation of the most common emotions associated with the experience of someone approaching death. Conceding that each person, culture and/or nation may experience grief and dying in his/her/its own individualized way, today’s unprecedented dire state of this most armed and dangerous world seemingly on the brink of its sixth mass life extinction and first directly caused by us pathologically flawed humans, warrants an examination of mass grief over our dying planet that is likely being experienced today by many of us who are minimally conscious, alive and half-aware.


Stage 1 Shock and Disbelief:


Perhaps by now many Americans are finally just coming to terms with the initial shock and disbelief that the Bush-Cheney neocons in Washington with direct help from Israel and Saudi Arabia planned, orchestrated and cold-bloodedly executed 3000 Americans on 9/11. Their PNAC “new Pearl Harbor-like event” was their convenient invention to launch its forever war on terror. The growing legions of 9/11 truthers may have experienced this emotion of shock at a much earlier point in time. Some who have never trusted their federal government may have bypassed this first stage altogether. But this is the emotion that is most commonly associated with people first learning that the nation they’ve loved all their lives turns out to be the world’s public enemy number one. Currently it is the United States of America who’s playing the bad guy role as the villainous heavy on the global stage doing the dirty bidding of the globalist agenda to destabilize and weaken every region on earth in order to lay the groundwork for the New World Order’s one world government.


Generations of Americans grew up taught that the US was the one nation that embodied freedom, liberty and justice for all, beneficently offering a beacon of hope and light to the rest of the world. America was unquestionably always the good guy wearing the white hat, generously helping other nations become proud and free like America, always the land of opportunity whose streets were paved in gold to the never-ending waves of freshly arrived immigrants. From day one to be so innocently inoculated and brainwashed by such highfalutin, never practiced or actualized lofty ideals and principles so eloquently handed down by our Founding Fathers at some point sets up a day of reckoning for virtually all of us. That day arrives when we suddenly wake up to realize the colossal betrayal of being lied to in the midst of facing a highly disturbing truth that we are not the good guy after all. It invariably creates such enormous cognitive dissonance in people that shock and awe disbelief become their most immediate stunned reaction.


When confronted with the sad pathetic truth that the United States has long been the aggressor engaging for centuries in genocide against the continent’s First Nation inhabitants and slavery against Africans and their descendants, right up to the most recent decade the US has morphed into the most ruthlessly violent, murderous and destructive nation on earth, at war 93% of the time and killing 30 million people just since World War II. It’s analogous to one day finding out that your beloved father turns out to be a serial mass killer. Your first response would naturally be shock and disbelief.


Stage 2 Denial:


And denial would be your second response. Perhaps the dumbed downed escapist Americans mentioned earlier are stuck in stage two – denial. In order to go about their daily hedonistically driven, taken for granted lives, they continue keeping their heads submerged in the sand or more aptly up their ass as a means of complete avoidance. They might be from privileged, upper middle to upper class homes and backgrounds too busy being hipsters just having fun in life to be concerned with the world falling apart, personification of the old “out of sight, out of mind” syndrome. These are the families who are preoccupied with their own daily concerns, worries and stressors that haven’t the time nor interest to bother fathoming the deeper, larger world of geopolitics, wars, injustices and other human inequities and problems that appear too far removed from their own well-insulated, small world existence. So denial for them is their convenient escape route bolstered and enhanced by the world of mainstream media’s diversionary illusions of deluded grandeur.


There exists another group of doubting Thomases just as fervently resolute in their denial that “the world’s fast falling apart” or worse yet, that it’s the US that’s the main culprit. This still rather large group in American society has been effectively hoodwinked by the nonstop lies, disinformation and propaganda spewing forth from their government and its mainstream media as its department of propaganda. They’ve bought into the brainwash pushed by the likes of conspirator-murderer himself George W. Bush’s warning fresh off 9/11, “Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories.” The feds employ an army of think tank wizards and publicists to deceitfully shape and mold public opinion through unending propaganda lies and doublespeak, conditioning Americans to dismiss anyone critical of the US or its government as a conspiracy theorist. Through this systematic dumbing down educational process, Americans have been taught neither to question nor challenge the status quo authority. Consequently, generations of US citizens no longer possess the capacity for critical, independent thinking, for seeking or discerning truth beyond the most shallow, surface-level appearance. They’ve been brainwashed into the cognitive distortion of extremist, all or nothing, black and white thinking, an example the more colloquially “love it or leave it” mentality. Anyone daring to try and hold the US government accountable for its wrongdoing around the globe, both domestically and abroad, must be a Communist or now labeled a homegrown terrorist, enemy sympathizer, combatant or belligerent. Now we dissenters who still believe in our constitutional rights are in the crosshairs of being exterminated for recognizing the truth in this age of tyranny where truth has become the state’s worst enemy. So you can easily see how being in the state of denial is right where the state wants you as a card carrying statist willing to turn in your friend or neighbor to the state authorities represented by the dozens of Homeland Security sponsored municipal and state fusion centers across the nation. Big brother’s watching you as a dark cloud not unlike in prewar Nazi Germany shamelessly descends upon America where millions of us sadly and shamefully still remain in denial.


There also exists another group who may not necessarily be in denial of the ominous bigger picture around them because they are the direct recipients of the feds’ murderous policies. Struggling with the all-consuming plight of just trying to survive in a hostile dangerous world of increasing despair and deprivation places people worldwide on stress overload, narrowing their field of vision to just an overwhelming tunnel vision of doing what’s necessary just to survive another day. These people living on the edge may come from mostly Third World nations being bombed by Empire and its allies where in an instant they may become the next victims suffering from US wars, famine, poverty, disease, and/or isolated and alienated from any social support system or safety net. A number of these impoverished humans living every single day with horrendous life and death issues can increasingly be found residing in the so called wealthiest nations on earth in the United States and Europe. And of course population waves of thousands if not millions of desperate migrant refugees from unstable, violent, war-ravaged Third World nations are constantly pouring across borders into North America and Europe creating even more racial, religious and class tensions and divide. But then that’s all by globalist design as well.


The welfare state that’s systematically bred generations of dependence particularly in America’s inner city ghettos find themselves increasingly without a safety net, frequently cut off from social and financial services. Across North America and Europe under the lie of lack of funding resources, it’s a Darwinian world of each person having to fend for him or herself. And with the chronically staggering, stagnant global economy, this is the growing trend and reality for a mounting segment of the global population, even prior to the next false flag crises bringing martial law and its reign of terror with the nightmare of empty store shelves without food and roving bands of desperadoes willing to kill for their next meal. When every day becomes a battle just to survive, deep impoverishment and death is already at their doorstep. Their lives most often through no fault of their own are trapped in deprivation and isolation. Or viewed from another perspective, perhaps with their rising rates of homicide and suicide, they’ve embraced stage 7 acceptance of death as their final escape.


Stage 3 Anger:


The next stage anger is where a fast rising majority of disenfranchised, victimized, chronically under- and unemployed Americans who are beginning to realize the lies that whitewashed textbook history has fed them is a total crock. They are the American citizens who have finally accepted what even elitist academia studies have concluded, that the United States is no longer a democratic republic (it’s a stretch to even assume it ever was) but a fascist oligarchy where its elected government representatives no longer represent the American people but instead exclusively the powerful interests of the ruling elite. They are reckoning with the growing facts that the 400 wealthiest individuals in America obscenely own as much as the poorest 50% of Americans combined (and that was two years ago with the wealth gap growing worse every year), that the disparity gap between the rich and the poor has never before been widening at a faster or greater rate, that of all income gains 95% are going to the 1%-ers and only 5% to the rest of us and finally that in just four months the wealthiest 1% on earth will own more than the rest of us 99% have-nots combined.


Americans have painfully witnessed the soaring, in-our-face fraud of a two-tiered injustice system where the ruling elite customarily buy lifetime stay-of-jail cards while literally getting away with murder, including 9/11 mass murder, the raping and poisoning of the earth, the enslavement of the global masses, the corporatization of transnational monopolies owning both all national governments as well as all mass media outlets, the surging white collar crime engaging in systematic bailouts at taxpayer expense now replaced by bail-ins from our stolen bank accounts’ expense, rigged stock market price and massive, unethical and illegal corruption saturating all levels of governance. Those of us aware of these disparities and injustices rising exponentially in such a morally decaying, crumbling global system are becoming angrier that both our world and our lives have been plundered and mercilessly destroyed by the powers-that-be. In our grief in coming to terms with the monumental scope of our loss comes understandable waves of mounting anger, hostility and rage.


Of course for years the feds have been well aware of this growing trend of anger and disgust sweeping across our nation and have in fact been systematically plotting to piss us off by purposely setting up such inhumane, unjust, depraved conditions that are now fast reaching the breaking point, by design inciting mass rebellion, mass civil unrest, and massive levels of violence in our streets. The militarization of America into its present day police state has been the globalists and US government’s longtime plan to commit war atrocities on its own fellow Americans. Widespread civil wars between the fascist totalitarian governments against their own law abiding citizens are about to break out in full force when the perfect storm convergence of a collapsed global economy and world war are willfully and diabolically triggered, which is now about due any day, week or month. So from here on out expect angry mobs clashing with police state armies shooting the bigger guns coming to a neighborhood near you. An overall current assessment of where Americans are currently at in this grieving process should be moving from stage two denial rapidly in days ahead to stage three anger and rage. Lots of Americans and people throughout the world will die during this anger stage that may be tragically prolonged over a protracted period of years.


Stage 4 Bargaining:


Bargaining as stage four is when people begin to make deals with God or for that matter the devil. “If you let me live God, I promise I’ll go to church every Sunday the rest of my life.”  Or “if you let me be rich in my final six months or year on earth and can do anything I want, I'll do anything you want if I can die a happy man.”  Many reaping what they've sewn closed the deal with the devil a long time ago in this civilization train wreck. Bargaining often causes individuals and nations into acting rashly, desperate for a different outcome. Judgment becomes severely impaired and secret deals hidden from others become commonplace amongst even loved ones and once trusted allies. This is when families and nations after living together in harmony for years while stability and relative prosperity ruled the day suddenly conspire and turn against one another in a reckless, dog-eat-dog, cutthroat world of violent betrayal and upheaval. The religious analogy is Jesus’ disciples who later - when push came to shove - no longer demonstrated any loyalty to their master... not unlike all of our public servants who once swore oaths protecting us, our nation and our constitutional liberties but instead have only paid treasonous homage to their globalist handlers by further enslaving us.


As the ominously dark clouds loom ever darker on our horizon, we're currently heavily immersed in a flurry of bargaining with the devil or God. Christians are becoming afraid for their lives all over the world. The US Empire made a pact with the devil creating and deploying fake Muslim terrorists as its proxy war mercenaries to wreak havoc globally. The globalist- Empire war of terror on humans is also a war against Islam. The divide and conquer formula is quite the bargaining tool. This stage also manifests when the rapists rationalize their evil by claiming if it wasn’t them doing it, it would be someone else. The rationale of looting and plundering as much as you can while you still can before the whole thing blows up also becomes another warped justification for egregiously committing global misdeeds. In this moral vacuum, a complete lack of loyalty, virtues and spirituality is the dominant driving force behind people and nations’ behavior. The bargaining stage acts as a significant close-to-the-end marker reflecting nations' and people’s weaknesses under duress.


Stage Five Guilt:


Guilt may finally set in when death and destruction are actually knocking at the door. The individual or nation may suddenly experience an overwhelming sense of guilt and shame over evil acts perpetrated in God's name against God, other nations and humanity. Just prior to the end a desperately feeble effort is attempted to get under God's mercifully good graces to be forgiven. Sensing judgment day is nearing, a frenzied scramble to absolve their guilt and shame over reprehensible past sins induces a strong urge for repentance. Those individuals or nations that may have behaved morally for the most part during their time on earth but in desperation and depravity have slipped under intense ghastly pressures compromising their values in order to survive may end up committing serious transgressions in the process. During this stage they may be driven to premature death by suicide. Witnessing so much mayhem and death, many still alive will experience acute survivors’ guilt and feel unworthy of life or continued existence and may self-destruct at this time. Or they see death as their last resort to avoiding yet more torture and pain. Strong spiritual faith and eternal hope help guide and give direction, comfort and strength during momentous times of life and death. They are obviously essential and critical ingredients in the struggle to survive and overcome not only the rampant death and destruction around them but the most intense emotional convictions that surface in the face of any and all of these grieving stages of enormous loss and unthinkable sorrow.


The one group that will never suffer from guilt are the psychopaths who are the elite. Though they commit the greatest of all sins against their fellow humankind, by nature of their pathological condition they are guilt and shame-free. They most often possess a grandiose sense of entitlement, deluding themselves into believing they are the true humans and all the useless eaters overpopulating the planet are sub-humans unworthy of living on this earth. Hence, for over a century their eugenics programs have been planned and executed. But with the destructive technological means of so many slow and fast kill methods at their disposal today, guilt is never a stage or emotion they will ever experience. In fact, with their sense of omnipotence and transhumanism, they’ve heavily invested in the prospect of everlasting life. Since they can barely even be considered human, generally they do not undergo these seven stages of emotion like the rest of us.


Stage 6 Depression:


Perhaps this stage is the most pervasive and destructive one of all. People who are severely depressed find it most difficult simply to get up and out of bed each day. Their motivation, energy and will to do much of anything is either extremely low or nonexistent at all. They have a sense of hopelessness and powerlessness to ever begin changing their lives for the better. If a person or nation of people believe that death is close at hand and little can be done to change the outcome, depression definitely sets in. At this stage with the mind-emotion-body-soul connection, with such debilitating and crippling thoughts, beliefs and perceptions, deeply depressed emotions follow immediately behind. And in this highly susceptible and vulnerably fragile psychological state, the breakdown of the body soon deteriorates and disease becomes accelerated. When depressed, people lose their will to live, it’s only a matter of time when their body gives up and death comes calling at their door.


Nations can suffer from guilt and depression too as Germany did after both world wars and to some extent it still lingers even today. Emotions of guilt and depression are often co-occurring. Whenever one nation makes reparations towards another or a victimized sub-group within a nation, it originates out of residual guilt and shame to desire to correct past transgressions. Will US Empire in its death throes experience a strong dose of guilt and depression over its past sins? Since the evildoing was committed by globalist psychopaths or psychopaths within their federal government and not by them, the American people shouldn’t suffer from remorse or depressive guilt though no doubt some currently do or will, perhaps because they may have stood silent knowing their nation was wrong rather than actively stand up and oppose their government’s wrongdoing. It’s never too late to take a stand against evil.


Stage 7 Acceptance and Hope:


Though these stages of grief have been criticized for inadvertently possessing a prescriptive, value-laden lens that can cause harm when individuals who are dying bear an even greater burden for subjectively not measuring up to their internalized standards that they may believe these stages dictate. Thus it is falsely assumed that the proper way to die at the end of life is to accept death as if you are more spiritually advanced if you meet this final criteria or milestone. Kubler-Ross would be the first to denounce this distorted notion. But this has been the chief liability of this particular, most commonly accepted and known grieving model for the stages of death. Perhaps acceptance does fit our cultural perception of graceful submission to death as our culture’s greatest fear. But it’s worth a reminder that premature acceptance of death can lead to premature early death at the cost of a needlessly shortened life not fulfilled by unrealized accomplishment, enriching experiences and actualized wisdom, not to mention love that would have otherwise been given righteously to others yet again needlessly denied.


Though in the course of terminal illness and preeminent death acceptance can signify spiritual adjustment and transformation that allow a healthy sense of closure and vital preparation for whatever follows death in the physical form. As an individual, a nation or even the human species, if the ultimate outcome does turn out to be extinction, acceptance as the end of the spiritual journey in the physical dimension prepares us well for a regenerative new beginning on another afterlife dimension. It places our own internal life in proper order to make the transition a smoother and less painful crossing. Obviously our belief system, sense of spirituality and faith in a Higher Power and/or Creator all play a major determining factor in moving through this particular stage regardless of how close we are or not to actual physical death. That’s why if World War III, the end of the world and earthly life as we know it come to pass at any time soon, what we do internally both psychologically and spiritually from now till we die becomes extremely significant and important. There is no time like now to put your house in order. And progress toward ultimate acceptance of death regardless of whether it comes sooner or later, may allow us a sense of liberation, peace, bliss and renewed and committed love and compassion for family, friends, neighbors, workmates, fellow Americans and world citizens, indeed for all of humanity and all life forms.


This powerful transformation from the individual level could collectively change the macro-outcome, especially when accompanied by group prayer. Thoughts are proven forms of energy and prayer is a powerful form of energy that when engaged in simultaneously by millions of people all praying for peace and love to prevail on this ailing planet, perhaps the miracle of life can defeat the malevolent forces pushing us off their doomsday cliff. That’s another reason to not buy into all the conjectured worry, hype and fear that such cataclysmic earthly destruction is about to be unleashed as soon as September and October. Though guilty myself of recognizing and believing how far gone we are as a nation and species, we can inadvertently become part of the problem by accepting and anticipating bad things to come. Instead let’s use the scientific fact that with mind over matter especially through the collective power of massive prayer and faith can bring about peace, resolution of human conflict, miracles and spiritual regeneration on the entire planet.
