The Symbolism Hidden Within The Wizard of OZ


Author Unknown

From: www.mayanmajix.com/art377.html


The Wizard of Oz, written by L. Frank Baum, is not a mere child's story.

What is "Oz" a symbol for? Ounces.

What is measured in ounces? Gold.

What is the yellow brick road? Bricks or ingot bars of gold.

The character known as the Straw Man represents that fictitious,

ALL CAPS, legal fiction - a PERSON, the Federal U.S. Government created with the same spelling as your birth name.

Remember what the Straw Man wanted from the Wizard of Oz? A Brain!

No juristic person - legal fiction - paper corporation has a brain because he/she has no breath of life.

What did he get in place of a brain?

A certificate: a Birth Certificate for a new legal creation.

He was proud of his new legal status, plus all the other legalisms he was granted. Now he becomes the epitome of the brainless sack of
straw who was given a certificate in place of a grain of common sense.

Now, what about the Tin Man? Does Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) recall anything to mind? The poor TIN Man just stood there mindlessly doing his work until his body literally froze up and stopped functioning.

He worked himself to death because he had no heart nor soul.

He's the heartless and emotionless creature robotically carrying out his daily task as though he were already dead.

He's the ox pulling the plow and the mule toiling under the yoke.

These days, his task masters just oil him nightly with beer and place him in front of a hypnotic television until his very existence no longer has any meaning or value.

His masters keep him cold on the outside and heartless on the inside in order to control any emotion or feeling that might arise.

The Cowardly Lion was always too frightened to stand up for himself. Of course, he was a bully and a big mouth when it came to
picking on those smaller than he.

(Have you ever noticed how bullies are really the biggest cowards? They act as though they have great courage, but, in reality, have none
at all. They roar, but with no teeth of authority to back them up.)

When push came to shove, the Cowardly Lion always buckled under and whimpered when anyone of any size or stature challenged him.

He wanted courage from the Grand Wizard, so he was awarded a medal of "official" recognition. Now, although remaining a coward,
his official status allowed him to be a bully, but with officially recognized authority. (He's not unlike the Attorneys who hide behind the Middle Courts of the Temple Bar.) et al ad infinitum.

What about the trip through the field of poppies? Did you notice how this had no narcotic effect on the Straw Man (no brain) or the Tin Man
(no heart or soul)?

They weren't real people, so drugs could not influence them.

The Wizard of Oz was written at the turn of the century, so how could the author have known America was going to be drugged?

The Crown has been playing the drug cartel game for centuries.

Just look up the history of Hong Kong and the Opium Wars.

The Crown already had valuable experience conquering all of China with drugs, so why not the rest of the world?


What was the Emerald City? The Federal Reserve System.

Who finally exposed the Wizard for what he really was?


Toto, the ugly (or cute, depending on your perspective) and somewhat annoying little dog. Toto means "in total, all together; Latin in toto."

What was it that the witch wanted after she alleged that the little dog had bitten her? TOTO. ... everything.

Notice how Toto was not scared of the Great Wizard's theatrics, yet he was so small in size, compared to the Wizard, that no one
seemed to notice him?

The smoke, flames and holographic images of Oz were designed to righten people into doing as the Great Wizard commanded.

Toto simply padded over, looked behind the curtain (the COURT, etc.), saw it was a scam, started barking until others paid attention to him
and came to see what all the barking was about. Who was behind the curtain?

Just an ORDINARY PERSON controlling the levers that created the illusion of the Great Wizard's power and authority.

When Toto pulled back the curtain and completely exposed him, the charade was at an end. (The veil hiding the corporate legal fiction and its false courts was removed.)

The Wizard's game was UP. What was he after all? ... a con-man. A FRAUD.

We can see, in this tale, just how loud the bark from a little dog can be.

How bout YOUR bark? How big is it?

Most of us remain silent and wait to be given whatever food and recognition, if any, by our legal master.

Let us not forget those pesky flying monkeys. What perfect mythical creatures to represent the Bar Association Attorneys who attack and control the little people for the Great Crown Wizard, the powerful and grand Bankers of Oz: GOLD!

How, finally, was the evil witch destroyed? .... pure, clean water LIQUIDATION!

How, at last, did Dorothy get home? She simply clicked her heels.

She always had the power, and SO DO WE!

What would it take to expose the Wizard for what he is, tearing away his veils?

We each need only a brain, a heart and soul --- and COURAGE.

Then, and perhaps of the greatest importance, we need to learn HOW to WORK TOGETHER.

Only "in TOTO," WORKING TOGETHER as ONE Body of the King of Kings,

(whatever name or form that may take for each of us), can we have the freedom given under God's Law.

Actually it was a lot simpler than that.

The wizard of Oz is a tale of late nineteenth century politics.

The various characters and symbols represent the current events of that time. For instance the yellow brick road represents the conversion to the gold standard.

more

Study your U.S. history of that period, Mech, read the book, (don't watch the movie) and you will understand it better.

I always thought the wizard of oz was about how Bush is bad and that the new world order is coming to your town soon.

1. Are the works of fiction coincidentally accurately descriptive of the NWO?

2. Are the works of fiction attempts by insiders to warn the masses about the intentions of the NWO cartel?

3. Are the works of fiction the blueprint for a NWO recent generation who lack the intelligence to invent their own designs?

I've come to appreciate that works of fiction might have actually inspired the designs of the NWO.

Wizard of OZ with it's "media" 'man behind the curtain'.
Orwell's 1984 as a blueprint for redesign of a "majority party' to govern for the NWO.

Manchurian Candidate as a warning of an extreme rightwinger by reputation whose purpose is to serve Communist China: Nixon serving Red China by kicking Taiwan (then Free china out of the UN and putting Mao's china on the Security Council with a veto vote/ nobody in the world ever better served the cause of international communism)

Three Days of the Condor with Redford studying fiction to find ideas the cia could use for it's operations.
His branch is killed by cia because he had exposed a plan to use fake arab terrorists in attacks by cia operatives on American targets.

Wag the Dog twice over
First it was in-the-can (finished) before Monica went to Washington
"...Going to Washington to get my Presidential kneepads." -Monica to a friend,
and thus more likely inspired the idea of taking down a President known to be susceptable to sex lures.
(After all the same 'sex with a subordinate' plan was used to oust Jim Baker after he refused to let the Christian Coalition be used for partisan political purposes/ and newt was having sex with a subordinate while he led the charge against Clinton/ the NWO media of course told us only what they wanted us to know and how to think)

Second it was either inspired by the Gulf Bushwar one - a PR War produced to boost sagging polls and to get a President re-elected;
Or, it was the blueprint for Gulf Bushwar two - a PR War produced to boost sagging polls and get a President re-elected.

The Matrix, is IMHO another attempt, like 1984, to let us people in on what the NWO masters are doing to us.

Like predators, they are feeding off of our misery and controlling our perceptions...

Dude, The Wizard of Oz was written in 1899. The book is a political satire. The book is a political satire. Again, I urge you to study American history of that time.

BTW, there was a group of very powerful men in that age that were despised by some (mainly Marxists and anarchists) as the “NWO” is by you today. They were often referred to as “robber barons.” But were they detrimental to the growth of America, or di their efforts feed the technological, industrial and economic engine that was responsible for developing the United States into the super power that she is today? Everything around you, your computer, your car, your house, the railways, highways, and transportation grid, etc. everything is a direct result of those men.

Have you ever seen the movie Metropolis?

Well guess what, that prediction didn’t come true, and neither will your NWO fears and fantasies.

YEAH RIGHT! That's why the dollar is soooo WEAK and now about 35 cents below the EURO.

Its BY DESIGN.

Better start buying some gold buddy.

You aren't getting it yet.

It's called GLOBALISM. What the NWO wants.

Total Consolidation, Total Homogeny, Total Tyranny.

The most blatent example of fiction giving the 'bad guys' ideas is...

The fictional blueprint that was followed on 911:


Although our series aired in the spring of 2001, we had shot the pilot episode in March 2000. The plot was fairly simple: the Lone Gunmen uncover and defeat a government conspiracy to fly a commercial jet plane into one of the towers of the World Trade Center via ground-based computer control of the jet's auto-pilot.
The intention was to blame a foreign, 'terrorist' nation for the bombing,
and thus encourage the US to enter into a war against it
- all to guarantee weapons sales for the US military-industrial complex.

In the TV episode, of course, our characters save the day in the nick of time, regaining control of the plane just as it soars over the towers.<
excerpts only, visit links for full letter and script W followed on 911.

>"Some one has flown a plane into the World Trade Center."
They say that most people thought it was a joke when they first heard of the attack. You can understand why that was my first thought. Luckily I was too sleepy to laugh out loud. (Actually, I thought it was a pretty poor joke.) I can only add that once I learned the truth, I experienced an eerie terror, as if I had seen the future, and not understood it until it was too late.
Assuming the idea for flying a plane into the Twin Towers by the remote control of a secret government agency was original to our writers, it had been floating around for a year and a half at least before the actual attack. Not a lot of viewers saw our show (several million maybe saw the pilot), but I have no doubt that the idea - or cultural 'meme' - was immediately available once the shock of the attack wore off.
Of course, it also means that the idea of terrorists flying a jet into a New York landmark was not so unthinkable as it seemed in the days afterwards. As far as news items being 'scrubbed,' I think it's safe to say that our pilot, if not our entire series, will never be seen on network television anywhere. Ever. A strange, awful confluence of pulp culture and reality...

The following letter appeared in the December 2002 edition (#165) of Fortean Times < http://www.forteantimes.com

Whilst the facts are well-documented, the author is noteworthy and the concluding lamentation is particularly poignant for this UK fan where the series has happily been aired, but minus the pilot:
Having just finished your article on 9/11 conspiracy theories http://www.forteantimes.com/articles/000_2002index.shtml

I was one of the lead actors on a short-lived television series that aired on the Fox network in the United States. It was called The Lone Gunmen and intended as a spin-off from the popular Fox series The X-Files. The so-called Lone Gunmen are three conspiracy geeks who publish an underground newspaper named The Lone Gunman (hence our show title).<

Companies with current lucrative no-bid contracts (Bushwar and aftermath) contributed heavily to w's campaign.
These lucrative contracts are paying them back billions in return for the millions they spent to buy him the selection.

Me:
Every recent disaster such as the arson caused wildfires in California, is followed by huge benefits to those companies who financed the Bush 2000 campaign.
Just today, Bush signed the new "Forestry" initiative, which allows logging in National forests.
Taxpayers will pay for roads to be slash cut through pristine wilderness, so the logging companies trucks can transport out the old growth trees they are now allowed to take free.

Nobody could have written a fictional plot to deliberately burn forests and destroy homes just to payback campaign contributors.
But I intend to look for the book that inspired the NWO to do it.

Imagine

Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

Thanks for the song Wolf,

If Lennon has hidden a NWO (rule of the many by a governing elite) symbolism in there,
It is over my head.

BTW, any parise for the 'robber barons' should be tempered by the cost in lost lives and miserable existencies of the labor they employed.

Henry Ford's "thought police" who inspected employees' houses and anyone not living in the approved lifestyle got fired.
DuPonts' evicting the widows and orphans of employees killed in the many explosions due to the unsafe working conditions.
They had to evict them to make room for the new workers hired to replace the dead.

Technological advances got such a boost after 1947.
Vacuum tubes replaced by solid state, etc.
Were these robber baron driven advances or reverse engineering?

Barons of industry fought against safety improvements and reduced emissions.

Left to their own devices, it's typically the model t paradigm:

Reduce costs and increase profits, make it cheaper, not better.

Hello All!

I posted this over on the MOD board!

About the Wizard of Oz interpretation Mech posted:


Super provocative, Mech!

It's fascinating that so many symbolic interpretations can be derived from this tale, which many term an allegory. Just like a visual work of art, many interpret symbols according to their own perceptions of the economy, their spiritual values, and the world around them within their own time contexts. The schools of thought on this range from the "purist", which states that the author's intents and motivations must be ascertained as the true and only authority of his own work and evidence must be gathered as to his motive. Others might feel that even if he wasn't aware of his symbols, perhaps the creative process was wholly subconscious and reflected the political/economic of his own era nonetheless. And others continue to seek symbols and connections for modern-day economic and political meanings and still others interpret on the basis of spiritual and self-growth symbology. So which is accurate? Which is the truth?

This is just one of the many similar economic/political and more historically accurate interpretations:
http://www.djacobs.org/oz/

According to most historical accounts, Lewis Carrol was more politically motivated in his Alice and Wonderland than Baum was consciously aware of his political/economic symbolism in the Oz story.
