The Kassandra Project online

The Cassandra Syndrome is a term applied to those whose predictions of doom are initially dismissed, but later turn out to be correct. This denotes a psychological tendency among people to deny and disbelieve such predictions. The person making the prediction is caught in the dilemma of knowing what will happen but not being able to convince others.

The term “Cassandra Complex” is derived from the Greek myth of Cassandra. Cassandra was a daughter of Priam, the King of Troy. Struck by her beauty, Apollo provided her with the gift of prophecy, but when Cassandra refused Apollo’s romantic advances, he placed a curse ensuring that none would believe her warnings.

Cassandra was left with the knowledge of future events, but could neither alter these events nor convince others of the validity of her predictions. Cassandra correctly predicted that Paris’s journey to kidnap Helen would end in doom for Troy. In Vergil’s Aeneid, Cassandra warns specifically that the Greek gift of a giant wooden horse was soon to carry tragedy within the walls of Troy, a prophesy in which “All heard, and none believed”. The term may also be applied in a sarcastic manner, referring to those who opportunistically claim to have predicted doom but were allegedly not believed.

The figure of Cassandra has also been invoked to describe those who take the role of antagonist toward widespread or institutional ignorance of the future consequences of current actions. (Barbara Tuchman: March of Folly; From Troy to Vietnam).

I am a human being like you, tired of seeing what is happening to our poor world. Every day They deprive it of his wealth, every day, without us, They decide what it’s best for us and if we try to rebel They repress us, manipulating what we read and censoring what we say and write. They can deprive us of name, may deprive us of life, but They’ll never deprive us of freedom, of our ideas.

I have no name, I forgot it. I am me, I am you, you are Kassandra whenever you say to the world what it doesn’t want to hear, every time They erase your words.

We are here together to leave a sign and to send a message. Their brainwashing does not work on us.

Others before us have tried and succeeded. Do not forget their names, do not forget their sacrifices, and do not forget that “The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.” (J.D. Salinger)

Whenever they didn’t respect our rights, we fell in battle and we had the courage to say what we had to say:

Are we still able to do so?

    I think that everyone tries daily to make revolutions happen, albeit ones within their power. It is often unfair to compare the grandiose gesture of a Che Guevara to the modest gesture of a person crippled under anxiety whose revolution is to open their front door. You came on my blog and made a full frontal attack on what I, an educator who walks into inner city schools and deals with students with compassion, posted on my blog in the interest of creating rational tolerance enough to help us understand each other. That is the real revolution. If I am completely self-absorbed to the point that I am incapable of appreciating the efforts of others, than every potential ideal I may be fighting for is lost. The government silences no one. We shouldn’t do it by criticizing efforts by fellow human beings to communicate. There are billions of approaches. There is Christ, there is MLK, there is Che Guevara, there is the mentally incapacitated (or should I say retarded) who takes every bit of the mental capacity they are given and insist on being happy against every naysayer, every mouthpiece of doom, every deluded nightmare monger out there – and their happiness, delusional or not, negates the furious emptiness peddled as philosophy. There is no US and THEM. There is only us – and our dreams.

    Johnnypeeper’s response:

    “The government silences no one.”

    With the exception of prior restraint on news reporting, National Security Letters, bans on obscenity, defamation, and fighting words, the chilling effects of university speech codes, and FCC broadcast regulations. Other than those, yeah I agree with you.

    That was fantastic to read again. This is me, my way of thinking and my challenge in life, I am glad I am not alone in this.

    Amazing. When I clicked over here I was not expecting to read something that so closely mirrored my own thoughts on the subject.

    Re: Predictions of doom, the suppressed and the suppressors ‘they,’ allow.

    I like the picture there on the title section, depicting a brain in a washing machine. Its more than plausible to surmise that such a predicting ‘one,’ such as Cassandra had her sources of prediction deriving from higher intelligences other than ‘human.’ On the same token, more than perhaps our human problems of suppression and the reality fraud we are up against has its roots in persuasions which arent human and thus that is why our so-called human condition is the monstrosity that it is. Some day, sooner than later, there wont be any need to be either a democrat or republican or a good person or a bad person. Because there wont be any world for us to humor, toy with and ignore. I think thats where ‘its,’ going. According to my own profecies of logic, this world is soon coming to an end. I think its obvious, but I dont have any solutions for that. More than unfortunately, the people of this world who are doing the more hard-core forms of damage to our earth are basically un-stopable. I dont think there’s anything that anyone can do about it other than the individual saving their self in any number of various ways (religion-spirituality, et cetera). If there are survivors of the coming cataclysm and if they were to reform and regroup, they will see that the vast majority of the races before them allowed the damage to be done, really without having any valid reason. If these war-mongers, eugenists, life haters and the like really are just going to off load the rest of us, then there isnt any point in remaining in a position of passivity. We need more than a sense of urgency. Its either now or never. So, do your self a favor and start doing something in your life that makes sense, save your self. Take control of your life. The only prediction we all need to hear, is that we are going to die. At home or in your daily routine, try this on for size… …In either your spare time or in a capacity as much as your work allows, as often as you can, mentally repeat to your self the following statement: “I am going to die, I am going to die, I am going to die.” Keep saying it to your self until you really believe it. It has an effect. It helps to scrape away the illusion of self-permanency, which the haters of the earth like to feed off of. They tell us, that we’ll all be millionairs as long as we keep selling out… …That the next miracle cure is just for you… …That you can keep your life as long as you really keep giving it to us. Stop the insanity. This is your life, not theres. “You have to do this, you have to do that, you have to do the other thing…” No, no, Im a slave of ‘their,’ system-I dont ‘have,’ to do anything. All I ‘have,’ to do is be a slave and die, thats what I got to do. Jimmy Hendrix once said: “I gotta die when its time for me to die, so let me live my life the way I want to.” One thing that helps, is to manipulate the suppressor with the similar manipulation, which they are dishing out. Tell them to move on to another case. Invoke your legal rights to them and get legalistic. Show them teeth and kill them with continual refusals to the point that they give up on you. You have to convince such sorts of suppressives that youre not ever going to change for them. Once theyre convinced, they summarily move on to someone else. Thats how it works. Because, how these people snare us into their bullshit, is by turning the person into a moldable and complacent client. Theyre a business and theyre in the business of defaming, inciting and attacking. They are all fucked-up, theyre all high on the power of those who have sold out to them and they have no redeeming quality whatsoever. They exist and you can join them or not. Knowing that is part of the battle. So, if you tell your self that “I am going to die,” as prescribed and if you start to believe it hopefully a sense of urgency will come over you so you can begin to make some real changes in your life. We think we have time. We dont, we have all run out of time. If you believe that, what would you do differently? Have you ever seen a sheep being slaughtered? When all the other sheep see their fellow sheep being slaughtered, thats when they decide to run away, but never before that. Take a walk on the wild side.

    Certainly this age is closing down and if it were not for the Supreme Being intervention the elect would not be saved. Just as predicted in many cultures/religions the waning was given the signs and wonders are totally seen and as the ‘Cassandra Syndrome’ indicates plenty of humans have lost their physical life in this body…. those that choose to ignore this last dayz WARNING will be very much in danger of losing their soul as well….. Prepare for the end the Supreme Being is at this very moment preparing and putting into forward ‘gear’ the final conclusion of human destiny… Be Warned and Forewarned there is no illusion to what will transpire in the world in the days directly ahead . The secular prophets even (Sci-fi writers, Scientists/Alchemists , Oracles/Seers and so many others have come to the realization that ‘time’ as we know it will be no more. We are not coming to the End but the End has been initiated – Some say the date June 6, 2006 (6-6-6) was the final turn of the screw. An event in the world took place that only the FEW that needed to know it took place and has caused the final Fall of Man to be engaged Truth of the matter is the HUMAN AGE as we see it today WILL END !!! And a NEW AGE not yet revealed in FULL -is already in progress. The actual events that will start engaging the human population in whole in a startling way more than the catastrophes we have seen/read here to date will soon be revealed. Jesus Christ Himself indicated in Matt 24 that ‘This Gospel’ referring (included) to what will be the sign of the LAST days. The Truth of what we are seeing today as which he prophesied to His followers then 2000 years ago. The Real Truth that the END has started (Read the passage if you are wise) Once that TRUTH is preached around the World then the END would come (Again read what it says). Many other cultures/religions previous to those we have with with us say the same thing…. It is inevitable
    BE PREPARED…. This is the End of Dayz we are in it we do not need a date
    If you are wise you will have prepared your soul to to be saved. Your physical life really is just temporary to what your soul will be enduring….
