I really don't think you can be sent into psychiatric care for believing in conspiracy theories, so I have nothing to worry about. It's not whether
she informs on me, it's as somebody said earlier, its what number she rings. At the moment there is no number to inform on potential enemy
combatants, but if there was one, I am pretty sure that is who she would be ringing. Reactions like those of her puzzle me, because I don't
understand how somebody would react so personally to what somebody else believes. They would actually go out of their way, make it their own issue and
take actions. I think that is a sign that somebody is not fulfilled in their life.
I have never really understood why people take their ego so seriously. I mean at the end of the day ones opinions, beliefs and ideas are not actually
set in stone, they change all the time. Some people completely define themselves in terms of certain opinions, beliefs and ideas, and close their mind
off to anything else. This is quite sad, because life is a constant learning experience, and if we stop learning, we really are stopping living. This
is what Sartre's calls, "living in bad faith" People should remain openminded to new experiences, new ideas, and new opinions.
Okay, so life as it is going on right now seems "normal" everything is working. The schools and colleges are open, banks are open, shops and
businesses are open. You have friends, and you have cinemas, bars and clubs to go to pass your time. Most people settle into their regular routines
and live the same routine day in and day out.
But what happens if the next day the economy collapses, banks close, schools and colleges close, shops and businesses close, cinemas, bars and clubs
close. Then that precious routine people have, that common life they accept and expect is no longer the case. Well, it does not take an economic
expert to tell us that the economy is collapsing, banks are closing, schools and colleges are being affected, shops are closing down etc and once
there is total collapse it is not difficult to imagine the chaos that will ensue in society. The people who have become so attached to their precious
routines will be the most traumatized by such an event, they will become psychotic. The people who are not attached to routines, who remain open to
new experienes and change, will cope with it. It is just another experience.
What people seem to forget is that the world is constantly changing, nothing is permenant in this world, and thus nothing can be taken for granted.
Too many people live under a false security of freedom, but what they don't realise is that if the possibility is there that this freedom can be
taken away from them, that it WILL actually happen. What can happen, will eventually happen. Today we are living in a world which resembles the the
world of WW2, particularly pre-Nazi Germany just before the ascent of the Nazi rule. The same history is repeating itself, the same conditions are
present, but if I tell people this, they respond, "It could never happen again"
Why the hell not? We have a government today that has gradually stripped away all our civil liberties, that is making ID cards mandatory that will
connect you to a central state database, that can detain us indefinitely without warrant and without evidence, you have government officials
announcing plans to detain citizens as enemy combattants, we have bills passed which broadly categorise any protesting or dissenting as terrorism and
and we have fully operational FEMA concentration camps. All of the infrastructure is in place, all that is needed is an executive order to end our
lifestyle. What makes us think it cant happen? It's happened in the past when these conditions were present, so there is no reason to believe it
cannot happen again. In fact, if we connect the dots, not only can it happen, it is very likely to happen.
Our forefathers fought very hard to get us our freedoms, many patriots were killed fighting for it, but they succeded in the end. What is very sad our
current generation does not at all appreciate those freedoms and has signed them all away for a false sense of security. We have signed our own death
warrent and future generations are going to hate us for it.
