Similar to the 'other' laws of the Uni-Cosmos, if there is such a word. Freedom is earned and learned. Not the 'other way around' unless, of course, they learned what it truely meant to begin with. Few have.

Wow 2 people so far that I saw saying that, even with so much truth being said here, there's too many words. That, in and of itself, goes to show how conditioned people really are.
Is that how bad it's got for some people?
They can't read one page of writing?

You can quit your job, if you accept the consequences.
You can refuse to pay your taxes, and face the consequences.
You can give up your posessions,
You can give up all the little luxuries that you get by following the rules,
BUT you still have the right to say no...It won't be comfortable, however.
I prefer having the knowledge of knowing I can refuse, but choose not to.
If you really want to take the hard road, refuse everything, go settle in the thirld world somewhere where they don't take a census or collect taxes, grow your own damn food, and try and figure out how to care for yourself when you get ill. But you do have the right to refuse to partake in modern life. You, my friend want it both ways--like those "tea baggers"--you want to protest the current society while remaining comfortably part of it with your computer, your internet, your flat screen TV, your junk food, your laziness, your total lack of self-sufficiency, and call everyone else apathetic.
I don't think people are apathetic or slaves; they looked at the althernative to living as a "free" person, and decided they like it better the way it is. You can always say no, most people don't want to.

This is a great thread with some powerful information in it. However it only scratches the surface. I've been assimilating an abundance of information for a long while and have finally found the spark in this thread to reach some conclusions.
Hundreds of years ago a group came across ancient documents that proved that Revelations was not just a story but a provable predictable occurrence. This group decided to act upon this info and they formed the Illuminati. Thirteen families were bound together with one goal, world domination. So they started using their wealth and influence to gather together all the worlds resources. They started wars took over countries and whatever else was necessary to attain world domination. They needed laborers (slaves) to achieve their goal so they arranged for men to think they were free when all along they were manipulating their minions into doing the dirty work.
Do you see where this is going? The time is near so their efforts are no longer very well concealed. They have their vast underground facilities built and stocked, probably thirteen of them. They have a seed bank in place in the arctic (which will be tropical once the dust has settled). They are ready to survive the brown dwarf, pole reversal and chaos that will ensue. It a grand and nefarious plan about to come to fruition. They will now start raping the planet and everyone that is not included in their plot, to insure their survival.
Not all will facilities survive, that's why there are numerous bunkers spread all over the world. They will stay under ground safe and secure while the rest of us(the ones that manage to survive) will be left to fend for ourselves. When it's deemed safe the will come crawling out of their haven and will truly rule the world. They will have technology and knowledge as their rebuilding tools and any small pockets of resistence will be absorbed (if useful for slaves again) or eliminated.There will be no Adam and Eve this time around.
There is a lot more to tie into this, but I want to get this posted before I might fall asleep again. I know this sounds far fetched so please add your thoughts positive or negative.
PS- I apologize for hijacking this most important thread,but it sparked this insight or insanity so please forgive me.
I remember for years my brother chose not to see the light of day, and it was his very employer who should him. He worked for the EPA in oil field site inspections. Consistently he was tasked with fining, and shutting down mom, and pop outfits, but consistently was ordered to leave the big boys like Exxon Mobil alone.
This made a profound impact on the way he looked at the World....
Using the pretext of food safety, those behind the Food Safety Enhancement Act seek to institute changes the American public would not condone if it understood what is at stake.
The country is being duped into believing that the pseudo-scientific measures prescribed by the bill will prevent new outbreaks of food-borne illnesses when in reality FSEA will usher in a number of undesirable outcomes, none of which do a thing to improve food safety. On the contrary, .... the new regulations will constitute a cost-prohibitive barrier for small players to remain in business, making them easy targets for indiscriminant enforcement and greater market consolidation.....
.....This group, called the Committee for Economic Development, was officially established in 1942 as a sister organization to the Council on Foreign Relations. CED has influenced US domestic policies in much the same way that the CFR has influenced the nation's foreign policies.
Composed of chief executive officers and chairmen from the federal reserve, the banking industry, private equity firms, insurance companies, ... – representatives from every sector of the economy with the key exception of farmers themselves – CED determined that the problem with American agriculture was that there were too many farmers. But the CED had a “solution”: millions of farmers would just have to be eliminated.
In a number of reports written over a few decades, CED recommended that farming “resources” – that is, farmers – be reduced. In its 1945 report “Agriculture in an Expanding Economy,” CED complained that “the excess of human resources engaged in agriculture is probably the most important single factor in the ‘farm problem'” and describes how agricultural production can be better organized to fit to business needs. A report published in 1962 entitled “An Adaptive Program for Agriculture” is even more blunt in its objectives, leading Time Magazine to remark that CED had a plan for fixing the identified problem: “The essential fact to be faced, argues CED, is that with present high levels farm productivity, more labor is involved in agriculture production that the market demands – in short, there are too may farmers....
Over the next five years, the political and economic establishment ensured the reduction of “excess human resources engaged in agriculture” by two million, or by 1/3 of their previous number.
Their plan was so effective and so faithfully executed by its operatives in the US government that by 1974 the CED couldn't help but congratulate itself in another agricultural report called “A New US Farm Policy for Changing World Food Needs” for the efficiency of the tactics they employed to drive farmers from their land.
The human cost of CED's plans were exacting and enormous.
CED's plans resulted in widespread social upheaval throughout rural America, ripping apart the fabric of its society destroying its local economies. They also resulted in a massive migration to larger cities. The loss of a farm also means the loss of identity, and many farmers' lives ended in suicide , not unlike farmers in India today who have been tricked into debt and desperation and can see no other way out....
