What is Freedom?
Freedom - the condition of being free; the power to act or speak or think without externally imposed restraints

Do we have Freedom?
No, we have a confined list of set laws that must be followed or you will suffer the consequences and penalties.

Why do we call it freedom then?
The world governments and law makers use the word “freedom” as guise and to lead the impression that you are really free.

Has the meaning of freedom changed?
In a sense it has changed by the way that the world leaders and law makers use the word “freedom” it has changed to “democracy”.

What is Democracy?
Democracy - the political orientation of those who favor government by the people or by their elected representatives
- A political system in which the supreme power lies in a body of citizens who can elect people to represent them
- Majority rule: the doctrine that the numerical majority of an organized group can make decisions binding on the whole group

Why is Democracy failing us if we the people get to decide on our representatives?
Democracy is failing because the officials that we elect in are about capitalism and communism. You do not get high on the government official ladders without knowing that your ship must sail in the same direction of theirs.

What is Communism?
Communism - An economic system in which capital is owned by private government.

What is Capitalism?
Capitalism - An economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and distribution of goods.

What is Socialism?
Socialism - a broad array of doctrines or political movements that envisage a socio-economic system in which property and the distribution of wealth are publicly and cooperatively owned and democratically controlled with a view to equal opportunity and equal benefit for all.

The reason for these questions and definitions are to get you to look at what is really going on here.

The world banks, media, entertainment, education, energy, food, and business are all regulated and ran by a GOVERNMENT. They use a “democratic” system to vote in and allow a “communist” ran government and use “socialism” as a false tool to give the illusion of “freedom” and that the citizens have a say in the “democracy”. When actually the governments are using “capitalism” and “communism” to privately own the rights to run the world and direct the flow of the citizens to a dependent populace and to rely on political leaders to make the right “socialist” decisions which is “communism” at the very core.

The dependency of the people is what the government requires for power. The general population of citizens has given their power and authority over to the political leaders and follows the flow that the leaders choose. The leaders choose to stay in power. They devise and plot ways to accentuate the need of their existence. They use the media as the main outlet to accomplish their goals. You see stories of War, Terrorism, Starvation, Economic Problems, Political Scandals, and just all around crisis. These are the scare-tactics that they use this is why you see reports on them. They want you to feel safe with them with the entire crisis and dilemma you see around.

The education system leads false information by reporting a false history and multiple false science experiments. This is how they begin their control and dependency because they also have the highest educated teachers and the highest educated scientist on their pay role. The government official’s goals are to stay in power so they get people with power to go with their flow.

Entertainment such as casual TV and the multitude of sports and hobbies are to keep the citizens distracted so they will not really look at the outside problems or try to dig deeper into the leader’s politics. They get the attitude of “not my problem, the government will deal with it”, this is what gives them more power because a majority the general population is this way after the development of the mainstream.

Look at the kids of today, you know what I mean.

_ I will leave this incomplete for now. Please put the puzzle pieces together to see the bigger picture of the world. After you completely see that picture make sure you know that the puzzle is not finish and the is still a bigger picture after after that.

I challange everyone to add more puzzle pieces and explain where they fit in the bigger picture.

The only freedom I can think of at the moment that I have is to consume. To spend money to make someone else rich. That is the only freedom we have. Think about it. Every single tihng you do in life is based on money. Get a job to make money, buy a car to get to said job, buy a house or rent an apartment with money, pay the lights and water with money. Buy groceries with money. Pay for the internet to post a reply with money. Speak your mind "Freedom of speech" on a website from a computer you bought with money. Take your family on vacation with the money you earned from your job that you do so that someone can make a widget that makes them money when we buy it. Yep, consumption, that's the only freedom I think we have.

the document that gives us our freedom is the constitution.Our elected officals swear an oath to it when they take office then use it for toilet paper.Until the people hold them accountable to thier oaths freedom is a thing of the past.We have the freedom to consume however that is also being marginalized by the federal reserve system.I believe I read somewhere we have part of the 4th amendment still intact but if so that probably won't be for long.For as long as the people of this country remain ignorant of the constitution our freedoms shall be gone.Most people have no idea what the constitution is let alone what it says.
I am an oldman and in poor health so I don't believe I'll ever have to worry about being free.Most people have thier two cars and a tv in every room so they are willing to settle for anything the government gives them.They will do nothing until something impacts thier lifestyle if then.

a little saying to describe my step daughter a very typical american

of all my daddys children I love me the best
so god you can help me and mine and to hell with all the rest.

Money the Control System..
Money and Taxes are going to be the down fall of the world. We are entering an economic depression that is going to drain out a lot of money from the people and put it in the hands of the lenders, banks and governments and this money will never go back out in to the economy. So how will the economy ever recover? It won’t.

The world runs on money and money is being used as the control system by the Elitist that own the banks and operate the world. These elitist are high ranking official with strong ties back to the Roman Catholic Church and are working on getting the power back to them.

Since the invention of money and the world banks, taxes were also created to take money out of circulation and out of the hands of the people. They have made everything cost money for services that did not cost money at one time. Money has taken the necessities such as Food, Water, Shelter and Health Care out of context and made them something that you have to continuously pay for to survive. This way you have to keep paying for essentials and the taxing of these items takes money out of everyday’s people hands and puts it in the hands of the elitist running the world.

How are we in an economic decline when the price of things keeps going up? Don’t the prices of these things go down, makes money weaker?

This is how we will finally become under slave law, there will be no more money coming to us, but the money will be sucked out. The economy will collapse. The government that you love so much will be there to pick you up but under their strict rules. They will allow you to have your home, a ration of food and water, and give you medical care when sick. This will come at the price of your freedom. You will do what they say, do the job they want you to do. If you do not you will go to prison or face death.

Some of the things that they will provide seem like a good idea but like I said you don’t agree or listen or want to do something else you get cut off or go to prison and eventually have to go back begging to survive. Communism? Socialism? Slavery? You have already seen the words coming out of your politicians mouths and you keep voting for them and letting them make laws to take away freedoms and money from us.

Change we can believe in does not start with the war on terror or end with the oil crisis. It starts with everyone being responsible and helping each other out. Stop relying on money. Money is the control. Go back to the basics.

This is for all of our sake. I know that I will not be the one supporting the slave society. We need to get the power out of the politician’s hands and get it back in the hands of the people. Let’s stop having them make our decisions for us and make them for ourselves.

The love of Money is the root of all evil? I heard that some where before….

Communism or Socialism comes in to play when the governments get involved and want to regulate what is going on.

We can do so many more things and actually have freedom without them sticking there nose and hands in our pots, so to say.

If the people ran there trade or business to their own rules it can actually prosper and be a good thing.

Going with honesty and responsibility are all we need to make sure everyone is taking care of.

The Machine is the world government. It is a perfect tool of control. The sooner it’s broken the better. They won't give it up with out a fight.

Do not get me wrong here I am not against the people. I am against the system....

Climb out of that box and take the chains off. Take that limiter off your brain and know that you can do it and will do it.

All they want to do is make everyone not feel smart enough or not strong enough so that they will never be challanged.....

They hinder the progress and contribute to the dumming down of people so they have no opposistion so they can just control the flow.

Not at you meanmug but for everyone else that still wants to believe the powers....
