Recognizing The Beast
How to Recognize the Beast
You have given some good answers about the beast (blind authority) in our schools. However, some have pointed out the effects and symptoms of the beast rather than the beast itself.
Blind authority is administered through government organizations, unions, teacher organizations, textbooks, school administrators, principles and even the teachers themselves. Remember the beast is a power rather than a simple object we can point out with black and white certainty. This blind authority is a shape shifter moving from place to place. You have to learn to recognize it and then be eternally vigilant to rise above it.
Here is how to ﬁnd where the beast is raising its ugly head. First realize that a just set of rules or laws is not necessarily from the beast. A certain amount of rules and laws are necessary. Order and stability in society demand that we respect all laws and rules supported by an informed majority. But you can spot the beast when you operate within those laws and rules and still get in trouble. Observe how the line of authority is administered and you can then run down the workings of the beast.
He is told by the teacher that he is supposed to be learning, be creative and use common sense.
So for political science class he writes a paper presenting a totally different view than his teacher has. He has followed the rules and was creative, did good research and all his facts are reliable, but the teacher gives him a D and refuses to discuss the merits of the paper.
A certain teacher teaches everything required by the rules, but goes the extra mile and also teaches some Phonics which is not the standard authorized method but it seems to work better than anything else available.
He is then called in by administration and told to cool it if he wants to keep his job.
Next this same rebel teacher publishes a letter in the local paper stating how he supports competency testing for teachers. He does not name names but presents several examples of incompetence in the school where he works.
From that point on he is treated very coldly by all authorities over him (and some teachers) and is passed up for promotion and even has some trumped up charges brought against him.
A School Administrator
Bob, a fair-minded authority ﬁgure decides he wants to do more to help the kids so he works for a proposal to cut administrative costs by one percent and give the money to teachers so they can have a good miscellaneous account to buy badly needed materials for kids. He realizes that the average teacher only has about $60 a year to spend on the kids whereas administration wastes thousands on expensive conventions, travel and entertainment. He thinks that his group should be able to sacriﬁce a little for the greater good they claim to support.
He is aghast when he is called in by superiors and told to lay low here and not upset the apple cart. Sure the kids could use a miscellaneous account but that can be handled through a tax increase. Administration needs every dime it can get and more. He now realizes that if he does not play ball he will never move up the ladder and may even lose his job.
This is a true story I saw on TV a while back. A school was in desperate need of a ball ﬁeld and the school was low on funds so the parents in the district got together and built one with their own funds.
However, school authorities told the parents that no one could use the ball ﬁeld unless they built a second one because if the school has a ball ﬁeld at all it must have two, one for girls and one for boys. There must be equal opportunity, even though the girls weren’t bothered if they had one just for them. Consequently the ball ﬁeld gathered dust because the school was threatened with lawsuits if it was used at all.
Sad isn’t it, but that’s the way the beast works. All seems well as long as you play along, but when you disturb the power of the beast you then ﬁnd where his presence is.
Where is the power of the beast manifest in Politics? We won’t pick on one party here over the other. For the sake of this discussion we’ll talk about politics in general.

No one seems to be taking a stab at the Ten Horns so I will give a second horn. On the Physical level the ﬁrst horn is North America and the second is South and Central America. These are two divisions in consciousness on the planet that rule with the beast for “one hour.” What are the other eight?
On the spiritual level the ﬁrst is the Roman Catholic Church and the second is the Protestant and related Christian churches. Again, what are the other eight?
