I would like to address a philosophy I have and it is in relation to what has been reiterated throughout the decades and that is the notion of
freedom. I personally think that freedom is just a false programmed mindset and is believed to be attainable as an 'end reward' if we endure
circumstances we don't have to.
One example I will use is the current war going on in Iraq in a speech made by George W Bush
President Addresses Nation, Discusses Iraq, War on Terror
Fort Bragg, North Carolina
"The troops here and across the world are fighting a global war on terror. The war reached our shores on September the 11th, 2001. The terrorists
who attacked us -- and the terrorists we face -- murder in the name of a totalitarian ideology that hates freedom, rejects tolerance, and
despises all dissent. Their aim is to remake the Middle East in their own grim image of tyranny and oppression -- by toppling governments, by driving
us out of the region, and by exporting terror.
To achieve these aims, they have continued to kill -- in Madrid, Istanbul, Jakarta, Casablanca, Riyadh, Bali, and elsewhere. The terrorists believe
that free societies are essentially corrupt and decadent, and with a few hard blows they can force us to retreat. They are mistaken. After
September the 11th, I made a commitment to the American people: This nation will not wait to be attacked again. We will defend our freedom. We
will take the fight to the enemy".
A name termed for the Iraqi war is Operation Iraqi Freedom.... theres that word again. It makes war sound like a worthwhile cause and one which many
use to propel the determination they have to support the war.
That sounds all nice and pretty but looking at the reality of war, would we be so destined to go to war to 'free' Iraq if it were called Operation
Massacre, which is what it is.... but suddenly that has a negative mental effect and no one would support it.
In that example I just gave I think many people will see how effective the illusion of freedom is used as a false promise and an unattainable reality
to justify wrong doings.
Freedom by definition means the following:
FREEDOM: The condition of being free; the power to act or speak or think without externally imposed restraints
exemption: immunity from an obligation or duty
Im not sure about everyone else but that definition in itself seems to make freedom look like a total fallacy and a product of mass mind manipulation
to believing it can be real. It almost promotes living in a world with no consequence or responsibility which is not a world I want to live in. And
immunity from obligation or duty, do we really want that in our world, to do anything whenever we want without a purpose or duty is just asking for
Lets not give into mind control and the deception that 'one day we will have freedom' because it would never work. If none of us had the obligation
to do anything the world would come to a standstill, we would be like mannequins with no purpose.
Instead of hoping a dreaming for a fake and unattainable version of reality namely freedom, we should be looking at a real system with equal and fair
rules for everyone, that is what we should be fighting for.
