I have seen so many videos on Youtube to let me know that what I have seen in my own life has become the new norm. We, as humans in the modern world, are supposed to conform to a herd mentality related to the Socialist paradigm that we have seen formed in this nation. In classes, when I was younger we were told that at some point we would see a melding of the Capitalist and Communist models. Folks we are there. I am finished asking people to wake up. You can live in denial. I choose not to. (Watch this W.E. Pollock video caution the expressive explicit language - Bocce Court - In the video he has to argue with a recreational park worker just because he is making a video at the park.)
A quote has been attributed to Abraham Lincoln, "You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can never please all of the people all of the time."
I completely understand this and anyone who has a public profile and an opinion understands this. Anyone who takes a stand on issues understands this. That is the reason why people don't ever want to take a stand on issues or express an opinion. If you express that you believe in liberty, then you are looked at as being an oddball. If you express an opinion contrary to the government line, then you are looked at as an enemy. And I guess I supposedly am not spending my time in a governmentally endorsed fashion, because I do not toe their line.
I am close to deciding to get rid of my television media subscription, because what is presented on the television isn't worth what I am paying for it and basically I don't watch it anymore, because of the propaganda. You watch television news and they are obviously expressing an agenda. You watch a television program and the messages are constantly about conditioning and the acceptance of politically motivated social agendas. You can't even watch sports anymore without some kind of political message being expressed by the network. That is the reason why they call it television programming, because you are being programmed.
You can't get most people to think critically. Very few people ask questions. They always compartmentalize the issues of the day and have very short term memories. They can't look to the long term context or historical realities of today's issues and they refuse to look at current events, the trends, and see where today's events and trends are taking us in the future. That is dangerous, because if we are heading in the wrong direction and we don't question of our leaders, then we are going to end up with some tumultuous consequences.
Look at what has been happening over the last several months. People have pushed the Fukushima nuclear disaster to the background. It is never talked about in the media and the problem is still not solved. Fuel prices have settled in at this below $4 level and now people are accepting this level and they don't seem to be questioning the long term trend. We have these hot wars in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan and people think this situation is under some kind of control. Put all of this together people. We are out of control!!! We are headed towards a World society breakdown and possibly World War III!!!
We're not going to have the numbers. I am sorry if my anxieties are offending some of you on specific issues. That is not my purpose. My purpose is to inform those who will listen. I just don't understand the acceptance of less freedom and the explanations of those that many of you look to as "Authorities." Authorities authorize. Do you want to have to ask permission to live life? This is an imposition against the human will and free spirit. This is the definition of tyranny.
It is a complex maze that we must weave through if we are to get any of our foundations of governance back on solid footing and we aren't going to get there if people aren't willing to look into the issues with more than a superfluous gaze. The stories aren't in the headlines. The stories are in the body of the article. Read stories and when you don't understand a position, then ask questions. Inform people on a deeper level and when you don't agree then explain yourself. Be open minded and tolerant, but this does not mean that you must be diplomatic by capitulating on disagreements. Communication and understanding is not a sanitized or simple process. It is awkward and can be dirty. That is just the reality. Liberty is not peaceful, loving and kind in the face of tyranny. We have to fight for our freedom or it will be taken away.
