The Shame Wars – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on August 21, 2021

I now see that to millions, freedom is the disease, not Covid. A disease to be eradicated, expunged from the vaccinated, booster driven new way of life. After all, who needs a natural immune system when we have Pfizer and Moderna?

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/08/no_author/the-shame-wars/

By Brutus

We appear to be entering a period of shame wars. Those who are vaccinated and are in favor of using government force to compel behavior are resorting to low-ball accusations of the unvaccinated being fools, stupid, or part of an epidemic of the unvaccinated as the President accused. They do not only seem gleeful at the prospects of using government force against the unvaccinated, they seem to want to do it today, to really bring the pain (see Australian totalitarianism). 

On the other side, my side, we are responding with what I call a righteous counter-shame campaign against those in favor of using government force to compel behavior. My side, the right side of history, accuse the other side of being like the Nazi’s (they are) or like Stalin (they are) or like Mao (they are). We try to appeal to their remaining conscience, but sadly, there does not seem to be much left. Their fear of a 97% – 99.8% survivable pathogen has done them in, they’ve crossed over to the dark side, sacrificing their conscience along the way. They have lost their humanity and have become the predator, hunting down the unclean, verminous, squalid, untouchable unvaccinated.

So, while hoping there might be shred of decency left in the minds of the supporters of government force against innocent people, and in the spirit of charity, I have a favor to ask, a plea really. 

Since for the moment, you hold all the power in government, media, and entertainment, can you at least tell us how far you intend to go? Like, are you okay with murdering us? Or, perhaps you just want us put in camps, like the sub-humans you apparently believe we are.

I’d like to get my affairs in order if you would be so kind to us sub-humans.

Watching how me and my family are described by policy leaders, spokesmen, and sociopaths on Twitter, I now feel, firsthand, what Blacks must have felt like as a slave owner zeroed in on them at the market; they must have hoped they got a good master. If you’re a supporter of government discrimination, will you be a good master to us who believe we can survive Covid-19 with our natural immune system?

Or, I now better understand how the Native Americans must have felt when they began the Trail of Tears. Or, how the Japanese must have felt and how they wished they could change the shape of their eyes so as not to catch the attention of whites who wanted to put them in internment camps.  

Oh, please don’t parrot “How dare you? It’s not the same.” IT IS THE SAME.

I now understand legal, constitutional discrimination like I never did before.

I now see that to millions, freedom is the disease, not Covid. A disease to be eradicated, expunged from the vaccinated, booster driven new way of life. After all, who needs a natural immune system when we have Pfizer and Moderna?

Sadly, this pro use of government force community includes conservatives and Christians like Franklin Graham. Perhaps what we’re learning is that these conservatives and Christians were really just liars when they claimed to support freedom. In reality, I now understand them to be just another version of the slave owner with no hesitation to use the whip of the government to quell their fears of a pathogen with a 97% – 99.8% survival rate. 

– Obey or die!

– Obey or lose your job!

– Obey or no restaurants, NBA games, movies, perhaps groceries, or education for you!

– Obey or in the camp!

– Obey or we will force the needle in your arm (Jacobson v. Massachusetts anyone?)

So, to those who have the desire and ability to use government force against the unvaccinated, can you help a brotha out? At least tell us how far you intend to go?

Be seeing you

Who Is Joe Manchin? | Mises Institute

Posted by M. C. on August 11, 2021

https://mises.org/power-market/who-joe-manchin

Robert Aro

He may not be a household name, but the letter Senator Joe Manchin (D) from West Virginia wrote to the Federal Reserve chair Thursday is worthy of consideration. The notable part is where he writes:

With the recession over and our strong economic recovery well underway, I am increasingly alarmed that the Fed continues to inject record amounts of stimulus into our economy by continuing an emergency level of quantitative easing (QE) with asset purchases of $120 billion per month of Treasury securities and mortgage backed securities.

Recall that the shortest recession in US history, all of two months, ended last April, as announced by the National Bureau of Economic Research in July. Perhaps the delay in reporting the recession data, or the surprisingly short span of the recession helped prompt the senator’s frustration? He continues:

The Fed has sustained $120 billion per month in asset purchases since June 2020, despite increasing vaccination rates to combat the virus and additional fiscal stimulus from Congress in the ARP [American Rescue Plan]. The record amount of stimulus in the economy has led to the most inflation momentum in 30 years, and our economy has not even fully reopened yet.

At the time of writing, the Fed’s balance sheet stood at $8.2 trillion, which is an increase of over $4 trillion since the formal start of the recession last year. He goes on to say that continual stimulus, coupled with further fiscal stimulus, will lead to “unavoidable inflation taxes” Americans cannot afford. He concludes that

it is imperative we begin to understand that long term policy responses tailored for an economic depression, like the Great Depression and Great Recession of 2008, may not be what is required for today’s economy and could result in higher than desired inflation if not removed in time.

The letter is hardly perfect. He doesn’t convey all the nuances, such as the issues with inflation, the Fed’s role in causing booms and busts, etc. And ultimately, he commends the Fed for their intervention, though he questions why it’s continuing this long. It’s understandable, as he’s a senator, not an economist, and may not even be aware of the over-a-century-long history of Austrian economics. However, he seems aware that something isn’t quite right and correctly notes that it’s the Fed’s actions which hurt a lot of Americans.

Albeit small, when someone in the Senate takes an interest in the Fed’s activities and even questions their behavior, it is a step in a better direction. If the ninety-nine other senators and more average citizens question the Fed, it could create opportunities to invoke societal change, to severely limit, and potentially erase the state entirely … one day.

As for the Fed’s response, as reported by Politico:

A Fed spokesperson said the central bank received Manchin’s letter and planned to respond.

We will continue to monitor the situation and look forward to hearing more from the Fed. Until then, let’s consider another question: Where do all the mainstream economists stand with the Fed’s intervention in the free market?

Across the USA, there are a handful of Ivy League schools and countless institutions of higher learning that all teach economics. They each have a roster of academics who get paid to continually study, teach, and write about economics. But the silence from these “intellectuals” remains deafening. It’s almost as if the mainstream academic community didn’t understand what the Fed is doing and therefore remains silent. Or maybe they do understand but don’t care to warn the public. If the latter is true, it could be due to the intellectuals’ comfort and security, which is handsomely paid for by the state. As Hans-Hermann Hoppe once said, the state offers the intellectual “a warm, secure, and permanent berth in its apparatus.”

How difficult is it for the truth, freedom, and liberty to compete with that?

Sen. Rand Paul: Mask mandates and lockdowns from petty tyrants? No, not again. Choose freedom

Posted by M. C. on August 4, 2021

http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2021/august/04/sen-rand-paul-mask-mandates-and-lockdowns-from-petty-tyrants-no-not-again-choose-freedom/

ritten by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) Wednesday August 4, 2021

Resist. 

They can’t arrest us all. They can’t keep all your kids home from school. They can’t keep every government building closed – although I’ve got a long list of ones they should.

We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and feckless bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again. 

Speaker Nancy Pelosi — you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs. We have all either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine. We will make our own health choices. We will not show you a passport, we will not wear a mask, we will not be forced into random screening and testing so you can continue your drunk with power rein over the Capitol.

President Biden — we will not accept your agencies’ mandates or your reported moves toward a lockdown. No one should follow the CDC’s anti-science mask mandates. And if you want to shutdown federal agencies again — some of which aren’t even back to work fully — I will stop every bill coming through the Senate with an amendment to cut their funding if they don’t come to work.

No more.

Local bureaucrats and union bosses — we will not allow you to do more harm to our children again this year. Children are not at any more risk from COVID than they are for the seasonal flu. Every adult who works in schools has either had the vaccine or had their chance to. There is no reason for mask mandates, part time schools, or any lockdown measures.

Children are falling behind in school, and are being harmed physically and psychologically by the tactics you have used to keep them from the classroom last year. We won’t allow it again.

If a school system attempts to keep the children from full-time, in-person school, I will hold up every bill with two amendments. One to defund them, and another to allow parents the choice of where the money goes for their child’s education.

Do I sound fed up to you? That’s because I am. 

I’m not a career politician. I’ve practiced medicine for 33 years. I graduated from Duke Medical School, worked in emergency rooms, studied immunology and virology, and ultimately chose to become a surgeon. 

I have been telling everyone for a year now that Dr. Anthony Fauci and other public health officials were NOT following science, and I’ve been proven right time and time again. 

But I’m not the only one who is fed up. I can’t go anywhere these days — from work, to events, to airports and Ubers, restaurants and stores, without people coming up to me thanking me for standing up for them.

For standing up for actual science. For standing up for freedom. For standing against mandates, lockdowns, and bureaucratic power grabs.

I think the tide has turned, and more and more people are willing to stand up. I see stories from across the country of parents standing up to teacher unions and school boards.

I see members of Congress refusing to comply with Petty Tyrant Pelosi.

We are at a moment of truth and a crossroads. Will we allow these people to use fear and propaganda to do further harm to our society, economy, and children?

Or will we stand together and say, absolutely not. Not this time. I choose freedom.

Why Freedom Doesn’t Need a Plan – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on June 21, 2021

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/06/allan-stevo/why-freedom-doesnt-need-a-plan/

By Allan Stevo

Dear Allan,  

On Saturday afternoon I went for a long walk in my neighborhood here in the Big City. 

I have been guilty of the indelicate crime of addressing unfamiliar passersby with questions and comments about their mask wearing. I usually get no response and I walk on. 

This neighborhood is a melting pot. Among the many ethnicities found here is a large islamic population and they appear to be big mask enthusiasts for whatever reason. When I strolled down a street in one of the more islamic sections I came upon a surgically masked and hijabbed 30ish woman standing in front of an apartment building. 

In my admittedly rude tone I offered “Allahu Akbar. Does God ask you to wear a mask?” Of course I got no reply and walked on. 

I had only gotten three steps before her husband, also surgically masked, rushed out of the building and angrily challenged me for accosting his wife. 

I told him that he is a free man and that the state could not command him or his family to wear any mask. He was speechless and other than him tapping me on the chest, that was the sum and substance of our interaction. 

As I walked away in peace I felt we understood each other. Perhaps the brusque encounter will lead to something positive. There is much at stake. 

Thanks for the recent article on today’s LRC.

– A Doctor from New York City  

—-

I am here to wake up the lions.

I have no stake in waking up the sheep.

I have no passion for converting a leftist.

I have no love for heated argumentation with a person who has covered their ears, who betrays their heart, and corrupts their well-being.

Dear reader, you are a lion I helped wake up. Your every email to me is a reminder of how important my work is: to wake up lions.

I am unlikely to begin the conversation you just mentioned.

I am unlikely to ever don a mask the way you did some of these past months to infiltrate and lie low.

I am unlikely to spend my days making time for those who do not see the evil around us.

I am unlikely to ever have the conversations other, more patient, readers like you have.

My only work, my only goal, is to rouse the lions from their slumber. If I can do that, the rest will take care of itself.

That is my work. And it may be your work too. But whatever your work is, and however you define it, as respectfully as I can say this, is not very relevant to me — because I know something far more important: if I can wake up lions like you, I have made the world notably more free, not through any planning of my own, but just because wonderful lions like you go through the world living your life.

Freedom ripples out around such a life well lived.

The Bottlenecks Of Trying To Centrally Plan Freedom

I can talk to ten, maybe twenty, maybe thirty people personally in a day and digest what they are saying to me. Beyond that, no man is able to do that work. Beyond that, every man expected to do so becomes an albatross to any movement.

My job is to wake up the lions. The face masks are an opportunity for that. For that reason, I focus on them.

There’s little else that I do. There’s little else more wonderful I can be engaged in at this moment in history.

The Only Planning A Lion Needs 

I ask you, dear New York reader, and every reader.

1.) What do you want to accomplish?

2.) What are the ways to best accomplish it?

With those two questions, properly answered, frequently revisited, no evil can be any match for an awoken lion.

The feminine is not good or bad. It is one approach, and as a male, it unsurprisingly, is not an approach natural to you. Some would criticize your behavior as too brash. You will find no such criticism from me. My only criticism is on whether or not your strategies are effective. If they are, keep them up. If they are not, then reform to be the greatest pinnacle of you that you can be.

Shaking Others Out Of Their Slumber 

Thank you dear New York reader for shaking the obedient around you.

You cannot know how much it means that another narrative is coming into flesh and blood contact with them, standing its ground, operating with confidence, and perhaps even operating with love.

Some would say you should never confront a person you aim to influence. You must approach with agreement, only ever agreement. Such thinking is solidly feminine and is very valuable. Its value does not make different approaches any less valuable.

The heckle is a precursor to getting one’s full attention.

A fight is the precursor to making up.

A struggle is the precursor to seeing a worthy enemy as worthy.

There is honor in a fight.

But this era wants you to say that every fight is dishonorable, that every fight must be had in free speech zones — literal cages — and in carefully constructed metaphorical bureaucratic cages for containing the disobedient in piles of procedure and paperwork.

Kafka’s The Trial is an example of such a bureaucratic cage, intended to exasperate the citizen activist long before the citizen activist moves the bureaucracy an inch.

No such cage is fitting to a free man.

Dear roused lion, if you feel the heckle is what accomplishes your aims in this fight, by all means heckle. Heckle, as much as you can heckle, to accomplish those aims.

You Are A Warrior, This Is A Battle, Do Not Forget & Do Not Be Dissuaded By A Feminized World  

Sport is a metaphor for war. Sport is a “safe” way that a society contains and suppresses natural masculine tendencies. Societally, we have no qualms about telling an athlete to leave it all on the field, to walk off the field without an ounce of strength left.

The same takes place among warriors in battle. This is quite natural, since the risk of death focuses the mind and activates the body beyond anything previously known capable.

Great stories are made of such superhuman feats.

We should be just as interested in our contemporary warriors leaving everything they have on the battlefield. Everything.

Defeat Is Breathing Its Foul Breath Down Your Neck, Waiting For You To Relent, So It May Turn You Into A Distant Memory 

Your total demise, dear reader, is so much closer than we imagine. Their plans for you are minutes away, hours away, maybe at most days away.

How effectively they have dismantled the defenses of good men by bringing the fight off any battlefield and into our minds.

Everything is needed of you right now to win this fight.

Something tells me their best laid plans will never come to fruition. The evil breathing down your neck, ready to end you, will never be able to do so, because to do so, they will need to conquer your mind.

To win victory around you, they will need to silence you.

And you do not acquiesce to being silenced. No, you roar like a lion!

And the panty-wearing men of New York know not what to make of it.

If they could just conquer your mind and silence your voice, your demise would come before the next sunrise.

Roar all the louder my good man, and you may come to lead even he who was ready to fight you.

All that is needed for men of this era to be free is for the lions to be roused from their slumber. All else will take care of itself.

Come out of your slumber dear lion. Fling that mask down to never be worn again. Read the bestselling “Face Masks in One Lesson” to get yourself there, read Allan Stevo’s LewRockwell.com writing, to stop masking as well, and sign up for his email newsletter at RealStevo.com for videos, classes, and activism opportunities on the same. We can stop this before it is too late.

Without Truth There Is No Freedom – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. on June 2, 2021

Strange it is that a disarmed and helpless West is so well defended by the one thousand billion dollar annual budget of the military/security complex and the 700 or so overseas military bases of the Disunited States. But this is no defense of Western civilization. It is a defense of the power and budgets of defense contractors, CIA and other “intelligence agencies,” the supply chains for defense industries, the university physics and chemistry faculties on Defense Department grants, the political campaign contributions that flow back from the military industries to candidates for the House, Senate, and Oval Office.

https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2021/06/01/without-truth-there-is-no-freedom/

Paul Craig Roberts 

June brings my  quarterly request for donations. Your financial support for the website tells me that my efforts are valued and worthwhile.  Your donations support me in standing up to the smears. Telling the truth in America in these days is a punished, not a rewarded, activity.  

The United States is best understood today as the Disunited States.  There is less unity than in 1860.  Civility is gone from debate; indeed, debate itself is gone.  Integrity and respect for truth have lost out to worship of money and the rule of power.  Ideology has shoved aside facts.

Money and power are all. We have seen this in the intentional exaggeration of the Covid threat for Big Pharma profits and the institutionalization of arbitrary government power over civil liberty.  Today, with the exception of some free Red states, such as Florida, in the Disunited States our exercise of our civil liberty requires the government’s permission. You are free only by the government’s permission.  In other words, the US Constitution has lost its authority.  We now live under the authority of the power seekers.

Government and corporate spying have destroyed privacy, another Constitutionally protected right. 

Education has been replaced with cult indoctrination. In blue states and in some local school districts of red states, white American students are taught that they are racist by nature.  They are infused with personal guilt for slavery that ended 156 years ago.  Speech codes are imposed that prevent any challenge to the propaganda masquerading as eduction.  The brainwashing of white Americans is imposed by law in blue states such as California, Washington, Oregon, and New York.  Parents who complain are fired by their corporate employers who have imbibed the Critical Race Theory kool-aid. No American who works for a US corporation has freedom of speech.

It is today ordinary for white liberals to speak of “exterminating whiteness.”  Whether they realize it or not, it includes themselves.  What is meant by exterminating whiteness?  The most radical mean it literally—the genocide of white people.  White people being systemic racists are inconsistent with “social justice.”  Most white liberals, such as those on blue state school boards, mean by exterminating whiteness the extermination of “white values,” such as meritocracy and colorblindness. 

Colorblindness meant that the best person got the job regardless of race.  It was seen as a way of guaranteeing that a meritorius black person would not be passed over because of race.  But white liberals now say that colorblindness is a white value that upholds meritocracy, whereas “equity” requires that blacks advance because of race, not because of merit.

Exterminating whiteness also means taking down white monuments, burning or delisting white books, rewriting white history as one vast ongoing crime.  Essentially what is required of us is that we reject and denounce Western civilization. If you don’t denounce your civilization, it is proof that you are a racist.

It started years ago—“Western Civ has to go.”  The white liberals thought this was great–denounce your own civilization. 

Another way of eliminating whiteness is open borders to peoples of color who eventually outnumber and rule the minority whites.  The Camp of the Saints explains what to expect. Already we see in the Western world governments more responsive to immigrant-invaders than to ethnic citizens.

Many older patriotic Americans dismiss the assaults on whiteness as silly nonsense.  It is silly, and it is nonsense, but it is nevertheless highly successful in destroying the system of beliefs that comprise Western civilization.  Indeed, the destruction of the beliefs—the glue—that hold our civilization together is almost complete. People such as Martyanov, the Saker, Dimetri Orlov, and myself see collapse staring us in the face.  We all hope that we don’t outlive its occurance.

In the West everything is denunciatory.  Nothing is affirmatory.  So many decades of denunciation of the West’s crimes has collapsed belief.  The West is disarmed and helpless.

Strange it is that a disarmed and helpless West is so well defended by the one thousand billion dollar annual budget of the military/security complex and the 700 or so overseas military bases of the Disunited States.  But this is no defense of Western civilization.  It is a defense of the power and budgets of defense contractors, CIA and other “intelligence agencies,” the supply chains for defense industries, the university physics and chemistry faculties on Defense Department grants, the political campaign contributions that flow back from the military industries to candidates for the House, Senate, and Oval Office. 

The one thousand billion dollar annual “defense” budget requires an enemy, and this requirement negates any security from the vast sum expended. Despite the Defense budget, it is far more dangerous to have an enemy than not to have one.  Having Russia as an enemy enhances the defense budget and reduces our safety.  For the sake of the power and profit of the US military/security complex Washington needs the Russian threat to keep the money flowing. 

But what country in its right mind would want as an enemy a nuclear armed country whose weapons systems were far superior to its own?  

During the 20th century Cold War the US and Soviet leaders worked to reduce tensions.  Arms control treaties were agreed, and communication was kept open.  This saved the world from many false alarms of incoming ICBMs.  Today the tensions, thanks to Clinton, Bush, Obama, and Biden, are so high that false alarms will be believed.  The world can end simply because of a false alarm.

For expressing concern together with Stephen Cohn, now deceased to our great loss, that a nuclear war could be the consequence of a lack of trust between Washington and Moscow, I was accused of  “Putin worship” by Michael C. Moynihan, a person of no known achievement at a website called “The Daily Beast.”

The digital revolution has endowed journalism with minimal intelligence and minimal integrity.  As Udo Ulfkotte wrote in his 2014 book, they are Bought Journalists.

These bought journalists respect money more than life.  If the world experiences nuclear Armageddon, it will be the fault of the Western Presstitutes who helped the military/security complex resurrect the Cold War.

Freedom Eliminates The Evils of Socialism & Fascism

Posted by M. C. on March 26, 2021

Socialism & Fascism are two sides of the same totalitarian coin, with the latter ideology being an offshoot of the former. While Socialism preaches the State being the sole owner of the means of production, Fascism preaches a partnership of State (Power) and Corporations (Money). Socialism leads to rapid ruin, while Fascism leads to a longer and drawn out ruin. The destination is the same regardless of the speed in getting there. Freedom and free markets are the only escape from this totalitarian vice.

The Asinine Notion That There Is an Easy Solution To Gaining Back ‘Freedom’ – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on March 15, 2021

And yes, Americans were much less dumbed down and much more intelligent in the past, but allowed this government to steal all the schools so that nearly every citizen could be trained to be stupid and obedient. They did this in plain sight. I understood this when I was a young teenager, so why did not millions more also see it? I can tell you, they do not want to know the truth, they simply want to be taken care of at the expense of their neighbors. Soon they will get their wish, as all will be slaves to this heinous and evil system allowed by the very people now complaining.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/03/gary-d-barnett/the-asinine-notion-that-there-is-an-easy-solution-to-gaining-back-freedom/

By Gary D. Barnett

GaryDBarnett.com

Every single week, and sometimes, several times a week, I get letters, usually nasty, about how I have never given any solution to this takeover being experienced today. It is normally something to the tune of: “All you (and others) do is tell us what the problem is, but you ‘never’ tell us what to do about it, and what the solution (apparently a one time fix-all solution) should be to fix it. This question and criticism is irritating to no end, and exposes the real problem that faces us today.

For how am I, or anyone else for that matter, going to be able to convince hundreds of millions, or in this case billions of people, to all act in a way that is not only sane, but that will drive these masses of humanity to at least attempt to help themselves? The very thought of such an attitude should be fully descriptive of why this country and the world are now consumed by a lack of drive to do anything to address their own plight by simply taking personal responsibility. Most everyone in this country apparently thinks that someone else should come up with a ‘plan’ for them, and all ills will magically be cured. How absolutely childish and absurd!

I have penned tens of thousands of words just this past year alone as to what the solution entails, but that does not mean that any large number of people are listening, or more importantly are willing to take any real risk to save themselves.

I am sick of this question, and of those that expect me to fix all their problems in life by “telling them what to do and how to act,” as if they would ever take my advice in the first place. They are willing to do as they are told by government, but not willing to fight or do anything else to save their own liberty. They continually seek a “master’s” approval, and desire to follow the orders of others. This is the problem.

The long letter I received this morning from a reader was pretty much as all the others asking this question or demanding a ‘solution,’ but at least this gentleman was fairly cordial and non-threatening, but still very critical of me and any exposing the problems we face, but not fixing the problems we describe. I am not including his letter, as it was long and somewhat repetitive. I felt I owed him a decent response, so this is what I told him:

“Thank you for writing to me. I appreciate it. I am always disheartened by letters like yours, because I have given the solution over and over again. There is but one, but it is impossible to bring it to fruition by announcing some sort of trick to get this ignorant and indifferent population to do anything other than follow orders. They simply have no desire to protect their own freedom, and seem content to wallow in apathy while waiting for the government to tell them what to do. They go to the polls to choose new masters every year, and every four years, they scream and fight to see which of  the selected two presidential masters will rule them. In what has always been a scam, people continue to vote, which is a fools game, and think because of it they are free. Indoctrination at this level cannot be overcome by simply saying; “Here is a plan for you.” 

If one is to walk the streets of America today and not understand the idiocy present and the depth of our problems due to the people themselves, then blindness has certainly consumed all the masses plus those expecting someone else to come up with a solution to change the minds of 330 million people just by saying “do this.”

The solution is mass disobedience and dissent, but by me telling people to do this, as I have been for over two decades, will not change anything. The people themselves have to stand up and take risk to protect their own liberty, because I or no one else can do it for them.

As to patriots, those that do the state’s bidding in war are not patriots, but simply murderers for the state, and are perpetuating their own servitude by taking orders to kill others instead of doing something to free themselves. This is just another state trick to get people believing that war is in their interest, when in fact, it just tightens the chains of tyranny at home. Now, the real rulers and their pawns in government are at war against the people, and they still cower in fear of nothing.

And yes, Americans were much less dumbed down and much more intelligent in the past, but allowed this government to steal all the schools so that nearly every citizen could be trained to be stupid and obedient. They did this in plain sight. I understood this when I was a young teenager, so why did not millions more also see it? I can tell you, they do not want to know the truth, they simply want to be taken care of at the expense of their neighbors. Soon they will get their wish, as all will be slaves to this heinous and evil system allowed by the very people now complaining.

Only individual resolve and a willingness to take great risk in order to restore true freedom can change this course we are on, and absolutely no one can force these citizens to do it; they have to come to that as individuals. Nothing I say or do will change millions of minds and drive them to action, and in fact, if I had to force people to act as I wanted, I would be no better than the low-life scum that is running this country today.”

It is incredible how as soon as a people become subject, it promptly falls into such complete forgetfulness of its freedom that it can hardly be roused to the point of regaining it, obeying so easily and willingly that one is led to say that this people has not so much lost its liberty as won its enslavement.”

~ Etienne de La Boetie (1552-53) “The Politics of Obedience, The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude”
