"My goal is not to be better than anyone else, but to be better than I used to be."
I wrote a post in 2007 about the top 8 people I respect. Here is how my current list would break down 4 years later. A lot can change in 4 years. Although I do still respect all the people I did 4 years ago, here is how it would break down for me today.
Jesus is one of, if not the greatest, teachers the world has ever known. His teachings, as found in the Bible and various other sources, always present much food for thought on living a quality, virtuous, purposeful and peaceful life. His teachings should be both the foundation and the chief cornerstone towards intellectual and spiritual enlightenment.
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
I took my stand in the midst of the world, and in flesh I appeared to them. I found them all drunk, and I did not find any of them thirsty. My soul ached for the children of humanity, because they are blind in their hearts and do not see, for they came into the world empty, and they also seek to depart from the world empty. But meanwhile they are drunk. When they shake off their wine, then they will change their ways.
This guy's just so hard for me not to like. He just did everything right. He worked hard, he worked creatively, he fostered innovation, he built a team, he built a business, he built a dream. This guy was a genius. I really started to like him even more after recently watching a documentary that tried to attack him. The funny thing was how everything they said to attack him and make people not like him just made me like him more. They would say how it was bad how he was against unions. I think that's freaking awesome. They would say how he became crazy and thought communists were trying to infiltrate his organization. He wasn't crazy at all, that's exactly what was happening. Look who controls Disney today. This Walt Disney knew exactly what was going on.
I believe in being an innovator.
The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
Michael Tsarion is a very hard-working researcher. The thing I like about him is he opens up new areas of historical and theological research that actually make sense and add up. For instance he is one of the only people who speaks publicly about important topics like British Israel and Western origins of civilization. He digs deep and clears up lots of disinformation and misinformation.
In short, it was men without spiritual distinction who sought a racial one to take its place.
It's hard to go wrong with George Washington. Anybody who is picked unanimously by the founding fathers to lead the Constitutional Convention has got to be of the absolute highest caliber in character and integrity. Without this guy there is no America. Without this guy the world would never have experienced what freedom really is. Through better and worse, thick and thin, this man was able to lead his militia to victory against the British King. He helped lead the American colonies to freedom. He helped open up the world to that brief blip of how beautiful freedom of life truly is.
Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder.
The more I read about Thomas Jefferson the more I like him. There's just so much to like about this guy. I really do think he greatly shaped the freedom, self-responsible side of America. He was always against central banks, always against big government, always against stupidity and always against tyranny. This guy was highly educated and brought so much to America. Hell, the guy freaking wrote the Declaration of Independence! Read that thing and tell me does this not ring more true than ever right now. Way to go Jefferson!
If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.
Alex Jones is a true American in every sense of the word. He loves freedom, family, humanity and fighting tyranny. I think Alex Jones is at the absolute top of his game right now and I can't think of anybody doing more damage against the New World Order right now than him. This guy has done his homework fully and goes 100% everyday towards waking people up and exposing the criminals who are trying to hijack humanity. This guy is one of the most selfless people out there. His sole purpose is to sacrifice himself so humanity can maintain and nurture freedom. He puts himself and his family at extreme risk day in and day out to go up against evil. A truly remarkable man.
The answer to 1984 is 1776
They want to KILL you!
Do you understand?
They've drawn first blood a million times.
You are not our kings, you are not our queens.
Jordan Maxwell has shaped my life greatly. Along with Michael Tsarion, he is the one that originally tied current world affairs into the theological and Biblical aspects. He showed how the political side of the world ties directly into the religious side of the world. He has so painstakingly and precisely detailed all the various ties between the Vatican, the British Crown, International Banking and all the other fraternal orders and secret societies throughout the world. When it comes to the elite world and who's really calling the shots it's hard to find a person who knows more about this subject than Jordan Maxwell.
The Bible is the called the greatest story ever told. It's not the greatest collection of facts, it's a story.
I don't believe there are too many people today in our western civilization that have really looked at where their religion, their ideas, and concepts, really come from. We are all aware of how other people can be wrong in what they believe. We have a theology and other people have a mythology.
So I found that nothing is this world operates the way you think it does. Banks do not loan money, governments are not empowered to protect you, the police department is not there to serve you, institutions of higher learning, colleges and educational institutes, are not there to educate you. The entire superstructure of civilization in the Western world is a combination of brilliantly put together and planned, well-planned, schemes to direct the minds of the people in such a way as to serve their masters.
Yes, that's the most dangerous thing you can do educate people. Because when people become educated, you cannot control them, you cannot frighten them. People who are educated know their own power, and don't surrender it to others. I prefer to die someday on my feet, rather than on my knees. An idea who's time has come is individuality and freedom, and understanding that both religion and government in America are the enemies of all good people. All sincerely decent, good people have as their greatest enemy this government and the people behind this government who are manipulating it, and the churches, period!
Manly P. Hall comes in at the top spot because he has shaped my life more than any other person in the last few years - and I like to think for the better. I really do think he is one of the most under-rated people ever. This guy was a giant. All you have to do is read a few quotes with this guy to hear something that is so obvious, so true and yet so foreign to most people. This guy was so spiritually evolved it's just ridiculous. He wrote his magnum opus: "The Secret Teachings of All Ages" when he was just 27 and completely shattered the occult and theological fields. I don't know where he got his information, or how he pulled it off, but this thing is a masterpiece. It is the best book I have ever read. Along with this book he has authored so many more books that range from magic to self-help. He truly is an expert in so many fields. Of all people, Manly P. Hall has taken my spiritual life to the next level.
For lack of interreligious understanding there has been very little religious understanding.
The majority of mankind neither desires to improve itself nor to support an organization which demands a high degree of integrity.
One of the difficulties of a representative government is that it does represent us. It does not do what we hope it will do - allow us to vote for persons more perfect than ourselves. If we had the chance we would not vote for them anyway, because anything more perfect than ourselves would frighten us.
We all want the good things of life; we all desire to be surrounded by friends; but we have no right to expect to attract any of these things except when our own lives have earned us the right to be honored, respected, and admired.

No man who is sick should be healed merely because he is ailing. He should learn the lesson that accompanies the disease that he has brought upon himself. To affirm health is foolishness; to find out the reason for the ailment, make right the wrong, and become healthy again, is wise and proper. To be so moderate, so wise, so thoughtful as not to become sick, is still better philosophy.
