My investigation suggests the story we have been told about America's founding, the Constitution, the Founding Fathers, etc., is complete hogwash. Our "history" is a fabrication of "good" and "freedom" given to justify something so insidious, it's almost impossible to believe. This isn't, nor has it ever been, "the land of the free," it is the "land of the completely brainwashed."

Digging into Franklin is a great example of this. His background story is total bullshit. So much necessary context is left out of the official version, and we think of the facts stated in terms of the context of today, or along the lines of the rhetoric presented. This method of story telling paints a false picture.

For example, Franklin is presented as coming from humble beginnings. Nothing could be further from the truth. His father owned a big candle making business. History paints it as a "lowly" profession (candle making) but the context left out is that Franklin's father wasn't just a "candle maker" he was the owner of a large profitable business. He had many employees. He was also a local magistrate. Not for the legal structure of the town, but for the Church. The context left out is that the Church WAS the legal structure of the town in the 17th and 18th centuries in New England.

Ben is said to have "not gone to school," and been "self taught." Bullshit. According to the narrative he went to Boston Latin School for a year and had a private tutor for a year. He then went into a printing apprenticeship. The context that is left out of his "self-taught" education is that the school he went to, Boston Latin School, was a school for the Elite. No one but the top of society could go there, and no one but the top of society could afford a private tutor. He likely did take over his own education, but that was almost certainly because he was smart as fuck and he had access to all the books he needed to teach himself, not because the opportunities didn't exist for him to go to school. Indeed, his father had wanted him to become a Minister, like his grandfather. The context left out of that is that a Minister meant going to college. ALL MINISTERS of that time period were from the top of society. Less than 1% of people went to college, and only those born to the "right" families. That opportunity was there for him, even though he didn't take it. That is not an opportunity afforded to anyone but the top of society.

A printing apprenticeship was one of the hardest guilds to get in to. Not only did you already have to know Latin going in (thus restricted to only those with enough education at a young age), but "printers" weren't just people who printed whatever anyone wanted, they were the News Media of the day. They chose what to print, what people saw, what propaganda was shown. They were The News. The printers trade was only afforded to select people, but both Benjamin Franklin and his brother James were printers (he was apprenticed to his brother James).

Franklin was born high, his parents were born high, his grand parents were born high, etc. We look at these things in the context of today, where everyone gets an education (Rockefeller's brainwashing institution), or where being a Minister is not an Elite profession, or without understanding exactly what a printing apprenticeship is. Once you start digging in, and you start comparing the life of these "humble beginnings" people to the opportunities afforded to the other 99% of the population at the time, you see that it's all complete bullshit. Everyone in our history is a member of the One Percent. EVERYONE. They are all members of the Aristocracy, from birth. no matter how low they are placed in "official history."

This little dive into Franklin doesn't even touch on the fact that recent digging in his house found the bodies of children in the cellar, or numerous other little tidbits that shouldn't exist for an "American Hero." I do not think Benjamin Franklin was a very good guy at all, but the Narrative needs heroes, and Ben got to become one of them. I think he was a hero; a hero of the Cabal.

That opportunity was there for him, even though he didn't take it. That is not an opportunity afforded to anyone but the top of society.

A printing apprenticeship was one of the hardest guilds to get in to. Not only did you already have to know Latin going in (thus restricted to only those with enough education at a young age), but "printers" weren't just people who printed whatever anyone wanted, they were the News Media of the day. They chose what to print, what people saw, what propaganda was shown. They were The News. The printers trade was only afforded to select people, but both Benjamin Franklin and his brother James were printers (he was apprenticed to his brother James).

Franklin was born high, his parents were born high, his grand parents were born high, etc. We look at these things in the context of today, where everyone gets an education (Rockefeller's brainwashing institution), or were being a Minister is not an Elite profession, or without understanding exactly what a printing apprenticeship is. Once you start digging in, and you start comparing the life of these "humble beginnings" people to the opportunities afforded to the other 99% of the population at the time, you see that it's all complete bullshit. Everyone in our history is a member of the One Percent. EVERYONE. They are all members of the Aristocracy, from birth. no matter how low they are placed in "official history."

This little dive into Franklin doesn't even touch on the fact that recent digging in his house found the bodies of children in the cellar. I do not think Benjamin Franklin was a very good guy at all, but the Narrative needs heroes, and Ben got to become one of them. I think he was hero; a hero of the Cabal.
