You put a high visibility jacket on and go into a car park with a clip board directing telling people where to park, I guarantee not one person will question you.
We are programmed to obey someone in a position of authority, no mater what fom that may take.

I found this video to be rather naive and idealistic. And very 'absolutist".
It tears into authority but only in regards governments. It does not hold up the authority of business or the corporate ethic in the same manner and in not doing so demonstrates the shallowness of the video.

Unthinking Obedience has always been a big problem for humanity because the majority of people are too lazy to think for themselves.
I was reading about a tyrant of a thousand plus years ago and how he 'killed' at least a million people. Then it dawned on me that 'he' probably hardly killed anyone. The idiots who 'obeyed' him were the problem.
So, Larken Rose is spot on with the problem but with the sheer stupidity and mental laziness of the majority of the human race I doubt much can be reversed.
Bring on the 'asteroid', whatever 'form' that might take!

This is probably the most important thread of all time here at ATS. This message is about what is really wrong with the world. If humanity doesn't get the message, these sociopathic imbeciles will kill us.
Do you understand the gravity of our situation? We have given total imbeciles, void of all humanity, positions to rule over us, legislate insane rules made law, provide for these insane rules be enforced by violence and if necessary death.
Its not that hard. All we have to do is to take responsibility for ourselves and our own actions, treat our neighbors as Sovereign as we are Sovereign.
