During the 2018 Liberate Your Mind Tour, Derrick Broze gave a presentation titled, The Pyramid of Power. This 2 hour presentation explores the mechanisms by which the vast majority of our planet falls prey to spiritual, mental, and physical slavery. The presentation examines the various institutions and organizations that make up this Pyramid and asks how we as individuals are supporting these systems. Finally, the presentation includes proposals for potential solutions and ways to live without supporting systems that do not align with our values.
The following text is an abbreviated version of the notes. We are now working on The Pyramid of Power documentary which will include a full transcript with sources. Please stay tuned for more information on this project. We believe the collective video works will have the potential to wake up many new minds and empower those who have long seen the Pyramid in action. Thanks for the support!

2018: The Liberate Your Mind Tour – What Does it mean to Liberate your Mind?

Who Is Responsible for the ills of our world?
Pyramid of Power, from Bottom to Top
Big Pharma/ Big Education/ Establishment Media/ Big Ag,BioTech Industry/ Oilgarchy/Big Tech
Military Industrial Complex/ Non Profit-Industrial Complex/ Prison Industrial Complex/ Banks
Governments, The State/ Corporations/False Religion
Belief in Authority
Sociopaths at the top who wield this power over others for their own purposes.
Big Pharma – read Toxic Psychiatry (or anything/everything) by Dr. Peter Breggin, watch Toddlers on Amphetamine: History of Big Pharma and the Major Players
“This flawed biological model ignores all the important realities in human life from the dreadful effects of childhood trauma and adult disappointment and loss to the importance of living by worthwhile principles and ideals. First, we need to weed out the influence of modern biological psychiatry, where it strangles our individual lives and cultural values. Then we need to replace it with values such as independence, mutuality, responsibility, and love.”
Big Education – READ The Prussian Elementary Schools, Thomas Alexander ; Dumbing Us Down: the Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling, and The Underground History of American Education: A Schoolteacher’s Intimate Investigation Into the Problem of Modern Schooling, John Taylor Gatto; The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, Charlotte Iserbyt; Spy Schools: How the CIA, FBI and Foreign Intelligence Secretly Exploit America’s Universities, Daniel Golden;
Establishment Media – Five corporations control 90% of all media: Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch’s News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany and Viacom; research Operation Mockingbird, Final Report of the Church Committee,
Big Ag/BioTech – Monsanto, Syngenta, Dow Chemical, watch World According to Monsanto”
Oilgarchy – Rockefellers, Standard Oil, Watch The Corbett Report: How Big Oil Conquered The World & Why Big Oil Conquered The World (annotated and sourced)
Military Industrial Complex – alliance between a nation’s military and the defense (WAR) industry which supplies it, seen together as a vested interest which influences public policy. These relationships include political contributions, political approval for military spending, lobbying to support bureaucracies, and oversight of the industry; or more broadly to include the entire network of contracts and flows of money and resources among individuals as well as corporations and institutions of the defense contractors, private military contractors, The Pentagon, the Congress and executive branch. Look up quote from Dwight D. Eisenhower, presidential farewell address.
Non-Profit Industrial Complex – Think tanks, academic institutions, non-profits, Non-governmental organizations, read The Revolution Will Not Be Funded: Beyond the Non-Profit Industrial Complex, Research The Dodd Report aka The Reece report or Hearings Before the Special Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations, Read Foundations: Their Power and Influence by Rene Wormser, council for the Reece committee
Prison Industrial Complex – The Drug War provides an endless amount of “criminals” for incarceration, research private prisons, The School-to-prison pipeline, prisons, whether private or public, are dehumanizing for all people involved – inmate and prison guard.
Banks – Central Bank System, Fractional Reserve Banking, Read The Creature From Jekkyl Island, Watch The American Dream, Century of Enslavement
Govt/State – monopoly on initiation of force, the tool which people use to organize the lives of others.
Corporation –would they exist in a free society? research Benefit Corporations
Government and Corporations work hand in hand and have essentially become one. It is necessary to oppose both governmental and corporate power that works against the people.
False Religions – The idea that only through the proper channels can you know God/Universe/Creation/Divinity. Also, the people involved in constructing this pyramid claim to be christians, catholics, muslims, jews, etc. but many of them practice “mystery religions” and traditions which are thousands of years old. They have their own hidden, or, occult, agenda.
All of these systems are underpinned by the belief in authority, which sociopaths at the top use to manipulate others
HOW does the Pyramid succeed?
Tools for Control – Disinform, Distract, Destroy (health, immune system), Divide, Disorient
What Can We Do about it?

detox yourself from the chaos and imbalance,
opt-in to your own heart and mind (healing, meditation, yoga, healthy living, prayer),
Decentralize all areas of life,
localize your efforts and actions,
create and support alternatives to every broken system and institution,
Research agorism, counter-economics
