On this day 20 years ago, the legendary Truth Seeker, Bill Cooper, was killed at his home by local bludgies after an alleged outstanding warrant.
This was a mere couple months following the 9/11 false flag (of which he predicted in June of that year), almost a decade of radio (The Hour of the Time), and an extremely influential book (Behold A Pale Horse).
I personally found Bill’s work back in 2013. This was the long lost time when FascistTube’s algorithm would offer useful suggestions, and it just so happened to recommend his 9+ hour Porterville presentation that he gave in 1993.
Needless to say, I was absolutely mindblown. I purchased his book, read it (re-read it), and then proceeded to tear through the 2000+ hours of his radio show archives, mostly while working for a moving company. I had 8+ hours daily to consume, and consume I did.
All of it was unlike anything I’d ever heard before…anything I’d ever come across…and it was the first time in my life I’d been told to:
“Listen to everyone, read everything but believe nothing unless you can prove it in your own research.”
He covered the current events of the time, including the first WTC bombing in 1993, Oklahoma City, the Montana Freeman, & more; I was so young when these things happened, listening to Bill’s coverage of them was like hopping into a time machine, getting to somewhat live through them as an adult. Further, his investigations were much more expansive and brought out substantially more truth than anyone else at that time, and rarely even matched today.
Wikipedia has him listed as a “militia theoretician,” but he practiced what he preached — his broadcasts covered the Constitution, American history (again, to a level unmatched in my opinion), the history and purpose of the militia, and he even did some organizing in that vein, if I recall accurately. Meaning, it wasn’t purely theoretical.
While I of course disagree with the Constitution being a beneficent document (see Benjamin Tucker’s Four Monopolies), I don’t hold his minarchist position against him, definitely not.
At the time, I was an atheist, yet still appreciated and understood his perspective on Christianity and religion — to only focus on the words in red (what Jesus said); to paraphrase, that if the devil (evil) is real, he (it) lives inside the minds and hearts of men, as without humans, there is only the balance of Nature…
Regardless of the topic, he always expressed the importance of personal responsibility and that if “we” wanted to find out what was wrong with the world, country, or whatever, “we” just have to look in the mirror.
Just as Hermetic Principles teach, what happens in the outer world is merely a reflection of what’s inside of “us” as individuals…and when it comes to the servile society, there’s a whole helluva lot of inner darkness, trauma, and lies/deception by way of propaganda…what Bill called an open air mind control laboratory engulfing the entire world.
It’s no wonder That society is in the position that it’s in…
Listeners of The Vonu Podcast will recall a number of re-releases I did of his Hour of the Time program: most pertinently here, #’s 87 & 88, “Beware The Rockefeller Medicine (Wo)Man: The Vaccine, Germ Theory, & AIDS Frauds,” back from 1993, and #114, “Secret Societies & Psychological Warfare,” one of his 1996 series.
Both of those are of critical importance in this current time, so please do take some time to check them out if you haven’t already.
[Note: For those who would like a sample of #114 before the full thing, I put out a shorter ~30 minute excerpt called “The Scientific, Medical Technocracy & The End of Eden” — it was TVP Intermission #51 from September of 2020 if you’d like to seek it out.]
He was certainly ahead of the game, far ahead of the curve, and a true inspiration for many like me who had the lucky(?) circumstance of finding his work, and then being so impacted by it to continue the path of liberation.
So much so, I can safely say, none of what I do today would be possible if it weren’t for that critical framework that he laid. Hell, he was largely the reason I started Liberty Under Attack Radio back in 2015 at his posthumous suggestion, which laid the framework for everything transpiring now: from the Direct Action Series in 2015/2016, to the launching of The Vonu Podcast, coming across the Midwest Peace and Liberty Fest folks, meeting/getting together with my freemate, and even up to the founding of The Free Republic of P.A.Z.NIA…
I certainly owe this man a large debt of gratitude, and I’m sure some reading or listening to this do as well.
I could go on, but will leave it there for the moment and point you in the direction of a documentary of his work and life titled, “The Legacy of William Cooper.”
In summation, a lot of his words fell on deaf ears back in the 1990’s, when this terror train of totalitarianism was careening down the tracks toward the New World Order, unbeknownst to most of the general population.
Well, now, the aforementioned terror train is very outwardly nearing the station — and while I do somewhat fear for the fate of the servile society, I know this isn’t the end for humanity, regardless of the outcome…
On the contrary, there’s a lot to be optimistic about. For one, I know that P.A.Z.NIA and the Second Realm is a huge inspiration to many already, and will only increase over the coming months and years.
Cheers, Bill. We’ll see you at the victory party!
