I agree with much of your post except for one tiny little fact. There is no "them."
It is us who are dumbing ourselves down. No one is doing it to us -- the NWO is a scary bogey man people have invented who don't want to take
responsibility for what they have become. Sure, there are companies like Monsanto, WalMart, Exxon and the like that exploit us, but they are more like
opportunistic infections than global chess masters. As for the the would be dictators of the world and the neocons who dream of global empire -- the
same thing, they are opportunists who we let have a crack at it because we would rather, as a group, stuff our faces at McDonalds, watch American idol
and only watch news about Brittany Spears or whoever rather than putting some effort into creating a better life, a better country, a better world and
a better self.
You are right. We will become slaves at this rate, but we will turn ourselves into slaves waiting for a master, and whoever comes along first and
realizes we are ripe for the taking will be that master. There is no high order cabal manipulating the events of the world, it is a mass of selfish,
lazy, cruel and ignorant people who just want their "stuff" and don't care what the cost to anyone else is -- who don't want to think or grow or
(gasp) make a sacrifice.
Don't wait to be rescued, start rescuing yourself and others. Educate yourself, turn off your TV, become someone, take responsibility for your life
and start asking yourself what little things you can do to become the catalyst for change. Wayne Dyer tells the story of a man on a beach throwing
starfish back into the ocean. He walked up to him and asked why he bothered because there were so many starfish on the beach that he couldn't make a
difference. The man just replied as he threw one back "I made a difference to that one."
You say "If people were able to master the process of thinking..." Why not master it yourself and become that critical thinker? Sounds to me like
you have the capability to do just that. Question everything, hold those in public office accountable, stand up to corporations that seek to exploit
you. Why aren't you now? Change the resignation of your post into the resolve that you will not be exploited.
Change the world you can touch, offer a smile and word of kindness instead of indifference, give up your seat on the bus to an elderly person, there
are so many little things you can do. And those little changes multiply until we start to cover the earth with kindness. Little steps. Read a book.
Turn off the damn TV.
There is no NWO. Yes, there are many among us who seek to exploit and enslave us, just as there has always been, but they only can take power of us
when we give it to them. They are parasites, they are opportunistic infections, they are easily defeated when we as a nation and a species live up to
our potential and create a true community.
