This is a lot of valuable information. I have to take some time and digest it before adding anything possibly useful but I hope the people will take the time to go through this material because it applies to all of us.

Right now, I'm particularly thinking about the FCC -- remember, the guardians of "our" airwaves? -- handing over part of the spectrum for appliances, etc. They also handed over a large part of the spectrum to Microsoft (need to look that up). If you or I start a pirate radio station and they find us doing that, they will throw you in jail in a NY minute. This is so that they can insure that your refrigerator, for example, has a clear signal to snitch on you.

The first known record of the Thugs as an organized group, as opposed to ordinary thieves, is in Ẓiyāʾ-ud-Dīn Baranī's History of Fīrūz Shāh dated to around 1356. Although the Thugs traced their origin to seven Muslim tribes, Hindus also appear to have been associated with them from an early period. The Hindu members worshipped the goddess of destruction and renewal, Kali, and for at least some of the Thuggees, this formed the basis of their actions, as it is said that they believed they were helping Kali maintain the worldly balance of good and evil. However, their Hindu faith was not very different from their contemporary non-Thugs, and the fact that some Thugs were Muslims also complicates the issue.

There is evidence, however, that all Thuggee assassins were united by common superstitions and rituals, which led to the gang being branded a cult or sect.  The fraternity possessed a jargon of their own (Ramasi), as well as certain signs by which its members recognized each other in the most remote parts of India. They were also bound by a set of rules, such as the prohibition to steal a person’s property without killing them in accordance with ritual first. Brahmans were not killed because of their purity, killing of the sick was considered an unworthy sacrifice, and women were not killed because they were considered to be incarnations of Kali.


Kali, goddess of destruction and renewal


Membership to the fraternity of Thuggees was often through hereditary lines, passed down from father to son. Others trained with a guru, similar to an apprenticeship, or tried to align themselves with other Thugs in the hope of being recruited. Sometimes the children of travellers who were killed were groomed to become Thugs themselves, as the presence of children would help allay suspicion.

The Thuggee assassins were eventually suppressed by the British rulers of India in the 1830s, after the implementation of the Thuggee and Dacoity Suppression Acts, which stated:

   It is hereby enacted, that whoever shall be proved to have belonged, either before or after the passing of this Act, to any gang of Thugs, either within or without the Territories of the East India Company, shall be punished with imprisonment for life, with hard labor.

A number of strategies were implemented to aid the success of the new laws, including incentives for gang members to turn in their peers, and wide dissemination of reports regarding Thuggee behaviour to educate and warn travellers and the general population.

Finally, after at least six centuries of wreaking havoc across India, the days of the Thugs came to an end. Yet today, their reputation lives on in their name, now widely used throughout the world to refer to aggressive and violent young criminals.

Tons of interesting info. Thanks Frigg, it will take a while to digest!

Facepalm My refrigerator! I have a 1954 model in the basement that still runs. I'm seriously thinking about getting it moved upstairs.

The info isn't supposed to scare you, right? I think it's so that we can understand what is going on so we can know how to help those who are vulnerable to these operations. And there is always the adage -- know your enemy.

The Manchurian candidate ... The most unintentionally candid and frightening example of cinema speculative fiction becoming reality.

This little video is worth watching. Not the whole enchilada but still ... you get the idea.

A bit of trump bashing and revisionist speculation... Whatever.

Still interesting.


Here is some further info.. Keep in mind this is NG and tamed down and permitted. Still, it is clearly admitting the practice was widespread and above the law.

Keep in mind all of this is SANITIZED for the public to be allowed to hear about... And still...


Can you even imagine where this "research" has gone? The level of sophistication and the augmentation with the most advanced technology?

It beggars belief and should terrify free people. Should NOT be ignored.

I'm not saying the sky is falling. RESIST in fact!

The faster we get people closer to "up to speed", the better.
