The Big Game...

Why people like so much to play? Why are people fascinated by any game especially if there is a challenging competition? Why do people strive for goals? Why do they climb mountains even risking their life? Why do they force themselves to the most extreme to gain new records in all fields of life? Why do people like to fight?
The answer is: Because they want to win. They do everything possible to be more clever or stronger than the other. Because it gives satisfaction, it makes people feel good. It makes that people feel themselves, it makes them feel alive.

Why is it so important for us to have 'success'? This basic need comes from the very early primitive life forms, where the most important was to survive. The strongest has the best chance to survive by reproducing oneself. In this way the evolution of the species develops. It is part of the 'game' that in challenging fights the weak individual is beaten by the stronger one, eventually being killed and eaten so furthering the strength of the winner. This natural behavior - although unconscious - is a very basic attitude and is still present in our modern ways of striving for success and satisfaction.

This underlying attitude is the same in each individual, only that this urge varies how it is realized in daily life. The way used will be dependent on one's personal evolution, character and also one's current material base. One will then use all one's available options to beat the opponent and to win the competition, using any known trick in this fight, including 'eating' them by pulling them to one's side. One's social state doesn't matter, if one lives under a bridge or is the leader of a multinational imperium, the attitude is the same, just that one has less means then the other and can't operate on such a wide level.

There are people who like to play chess, indeed it is a fascinating game: it is like in daily life, just without the physical threatening. One has to use all tricks with the final goal to checkmate the opponent.  Killing is a main part of the game: one wants to kill as many of the enemy as possible, that makes one's own position stronger by weakening the other. But also one is using all kinds of dirty tricks to fool the other, to make them fall into a trap or just gaining a better position by sacrificing one's own people. Even the queen will be sacrificed if it serves the purpose! The king as a representation of the "I" must survive, this is the only what counts at the end! Winning the game the player feels great and will soon search for the next challenging opponent...

Most people in our society live their life as if playing a chess game. Some do it very simple just defending their position as good as they can, often feeling as victims of unfavorable circumstances, others feel stronger and look for challenges by attacking the space and property of others... There are people in powerful positions who play in an extremely sophisticated way, moving their 'chessmen' from the background, using the same basic tricks but with an highly developed intellect manipulating gullible people. These people then make decisions mandated by the manipulators, believing that these are made out of their own will. This can become so extreme that they even sacrifice themselves for the good of a 'higher goal'.

Indeed there are a few people on this planet who are playing in such an advanced way, that they not only move astronomic amounts of money but also most part of the world's consumer population included leaders of countries as part of their game. They use their power in such a manipulative way that they take over everything they go for and if there is resistance or an obstacle then they know how to move their chessmen to eliminate everything and every body... These people not only play their 'Top Game', they also play their role as normal human beings: As family fathers, being respected members of their community, giving generous donations for humanitarian purposes, etc. They seem to be just normal citizens and it is not a conscious double role they play. They see themselves as idealistic and are convinced that they do the best they can and that for a higher purpose it is inevitable to make some sacrifice. They are convinced that the purpose justifies the means and as long as they are riding the tiger of success then there is no conflict for them. That they mostly end in desperation when they get older, that is their personal problem they have to face by themselves...

In the Big Game there is no 'Love' involved! Any kind of belief system or concept will be used to manipulate others in the most subtle way, so religious and philosophical concepts - beside the basic needs - are part of the strategy of the top players in this world. They move billions of dollars and human, animal and plant life are just seen as disposable objects that they can use for their advantage in playing the Big Game. Killing is part of the game and if it serves its purpose, they don't mind to sacrifice their own people and for sure not the life of those who might be an obstacle or just because they fit into their stratgedy, no matter if these are important personalities or a few hundred thousand insignificant pawns.

These top players are acting from the background and they never appear in public. They never act directly, they only move their pieces by letting their influences manipulate others. And they do it in such a clever way, that even the manipulated people don't know about it, not the mass of millions of pawns and not the leading chessmen, they believe that they are making decisions out of their own free will, but in reality they are just puppets. They all are programmed by traditional education and manipulated by daily suggestive advertisements, so that they buy things they believe they need to be satisfied - not knowing that they are just marionettes, brainwashed by the controlled and manipulated mass mediums and the entertainment industry - all serving the Big Game.

The momentary situation in the ongoing chess tournament is that a hundred thousand of the opponent pawns will be killed and ten thousands of the own pawns will be sacrificed. The situation is so dangerous that it might involve the whole planet and threaten the life of all. Obviously those 'Top Players' meanwhile are going too far as they are risking their own life, but for them this is part of the game and makes them getting excited about it, like the one who is climbing the mountain risking one's life. Or maybe they have a backup plan to emigrate into outer space if things escape their control...

It seems that those who are playing the Big Game don't care anymore that it becomes obvious that what happens now is part of a big money and power game. It is becoming so absurd and monstrous that even the most innocent puppets in this game start to question what is going on. Especially because there are many obvious contradictions and even the most basic religious concepts, such as 'Thou Shalt Not Kill' and others, which until now were serving to manipulate people are totally ignored. 

Probably these 'Top Players' are just bored because they have gained that much power that they can reach every thing they want too easily and only enough resistance makes the game more exciting. So what they do is that they provoke not only the resisting opponents but also their own chessmen up to the mass of pawns. At the moment most of the provoked people are satisfied expressing themselves by putting a candle in the window, wearing a white scarf and going to a demonstration party and with this they have the feeling that they do something for peace. But there are more and more who seriously question what is happening and are searching for background information and ask themselves what they possibly might do to change something about the the life threatening situation. A very few people even might wake up...

So what can a 'pawn' do to influence the threatening happenings in this Big Game? Is there a way to act in an effective way without being a helpless manipulated puppet and part of the Game? I am convinced that there is ...
