Is this site not about denying ignorance and spreading the horizons of your mind?
Then why do we continue to say ignorant things like 'it's never gonna change. it's too big. we should just focus on our own well being.'
A dream happened to me that I wanted to share with you.
It is part of a grander series of reoccurring dreams I had when I was younger.
And it had a certain theme to it.
The population had been decimated by over 140 million people. It was through a combination of WWIII, a civil war, and then a subsequent super plague.
This plague was no ordinary one though. It was airborne. It infected over 90% of the world's population.
96% of the infected died within three days of the onset of symptoms. 3% became zombie like carriers of the plague. 1% were immune.
In the dream, I had been dispatched as a private contractor by the rebel government to go across the country assisting sympathetic survivors and
establishing rebel strongholds.
I had been given an old diesel F-350, bio diesel/supplies for 6 months and enough ammo to equip a small army.
Pay would be $499,995 or 499 ounces of gold. Half up front, half on completion.
I made my way across the country, assisting other rebels or else causing mischief to the US government.
I eventually picked up radio transmissions indicating a survivor stronghold in New Hampshire that needed assistance.
Unfortunately, I stumbled across a carrier infestation and a small war.
The US government had given authority to the UN to come and give food/supplies to the surviving population.
In exchange, the population merely needed to get a barcode linked to a national database containing their photo, DNA, SSN, and birthdate.
Half of the stronghold was against the barcodes and half weren't.
Surprise, surprise, it was the more affluent survivors that wanted the barcodes.
On the one hand, I had food, water, and ammo from the rebel government with a promise to keep bringing more by airlift.
It would be about 18 months before the rebel government was up and running so it was an empty promise.
On the other hand, the US government was doing just dandy handing out food and water to the barcoded survivors.
The problem they were fighting over was the problem of the blue helmets. Sometime ago, soldiers wearing the bars and stripes were replaced by the
peacekeepers. Who then proceeded to try and force the non coded to get their codes.
When one of the peacekeepers tried to make rude gestures and comments to a young lady, her father got pissed and punched out the peacekeeper. The blue
helmets then shot into the crowd of barcoded and non barcoded with non lethals and retreated, promising to come back with reinforcements.
Long story short, with the aid of a generous amount of high explosives and the ingenuity of a few dozen military veterans, we convinced the stronghold
to unite and become a rebel stronghold to fly food and other supplies out of.
The dream skips forward to me standing at a podium.
The people in front of me came from all walks of life and represented every state still alive.
They knew all about what had transpired to rob them of their former livelihoods.
I did not see despair or destitution.
Instead, I saw hope and pride returning to a broken populace.
They had come for a grand and inspiring speech.
I am not one for speeches however.
This is as best as I can remember
"Look at me now mom. I went from being the small bookworm who always read books to leading teams of commandoes and signing laws. I did not come from
the lap of luxury. My parents worked hard to feed my siblings and me. My father became a victim of the dream that was sold to all of you. He lost his
business of 20 years and his belief in America after a costly work injury. I never lost my belief though. I always dreamed of a time when every man
could be proud of his country like my Quebec born father was. He had immigrated in the 70s, not knowing a lick of English. He journeyed to Florida,
like many illegal migrants once did*small chuckle from me and the crowd*. I want this nation to become like that again. And that is why my first act
as leader of our nation is to *dramatic pause* declare DEFCON One and invoke the War Powers ACt of 1941. We have been infiltrated and corrupted from
within by enemies foreign and domestic. I am hereby mobilizing the military to abandon all overseas bases and to return to CONUS. We are in a state of
emergency until it has been determined that no more such enemies pose a threat to our newly emerging United States Republic and the grander North
American Union. May you all be blessed and may our nation be blessed as well. *I clear my throat* That's about it folks."
That's when the crowd goes crazier than the Blue Jay fans at the playoffs.
My approval rating went up over 14% that day.
From there out, we became the economic powerhouse that would eventually send over half a million people to colonize another world.
After that, new ideas would emerge that would make technology leap by bounds and spans until in the year 2500, we breach the edge of the Milky Way and
discover that we are the most technologically dominant species bar none after an intergalactic war occurred in the time it took us to leave the Milky
All hope is not lost.
That is why the new world plan has succeeded so well.
By convincing it's opponents that it is much too big and well thought out to fail, it has made it's opponents effectively neutralized.
The opponents just defeated themselves by accepting that they can't stop what is coming.
We can and the means to do so lie at your fingertips.
Do not bow down and accept their reality.
Create your own destiny and break the mold that has been placed on you.
You got laid off for lack of work?
Find a way to make money assisting others. Even if it's just being a handyman or glorified monkey.
Don't fall into the trap of the dole and welfare. They are tools designed to limit you.
My message may go unheard among many of you, but if even a handful take this message as intended, it will be worth it.
I am so totally boned after I post this.
I've already been scraping the edge by posting on different anonymous forums, but with this, I'm turning the screws too much.
By the end of the year, I'll be on 24/7 watch in some mental clinic. I'll have been deemed a danger to society and committed for my own good. My
family will all testify about my paranoid delusions about the government and all my 'friends' will claim that I am irrational and I am prone to
That way, none of anything I say after that will be creditable.
I'll just be that mostly harmless wackjob that smokes too much weed and sits home all day ranting about the government.
That's the plan anyways.
Too bad I don't like following plans.
