As a consequence of my "awakening" to the agenda of the TPTB, I too struggle with those same feelings of fear and anger, but mostly I find myself experiencing extreme cynicism. Any actions taken by governments at any level, by the banking industry, the UN and its agencies, etc. always leave me wondering about their motive: divide and conquer? problem/reaction/solution? I like to think of this new found cynicism as healthy. I no longer feel that I owe figures of authority any more respect than they earn or deserve. I question what authority has to say and I will do my homework before I will buy into anything that they say or tell me that I should do. Being cynical helps to temper my fear and anger. I'd like to think that the individuals who are the masterminds of the Global Elite/Illuminati are just as vulnerable as we are. They were born helpless and peeing in their diapers just like anyone else, and I for one will never regard their status as any greater than mine or anybody else. This mindset helps me to make decisions that will hopefully erode the control that they wish to exercise over us.

Sometimes what we think we know, we don't.
However the best route IMO is to expect the unexpected.

I personally believe this war is for money.

If someone doesn't know that, then they are blind.

The question is if whether or not this war is benefiting our country as a whole, just a few select people, or both.

If the government told the citizens that we are at war for oil, or something else of heavy value to our economy, people might not fight. Instead, you say
"those damn towelheads, blowing stuff up! Get them!", and you got a following.

It isn't like we are forced to serve, so if someone wants to, I could really care less.

Everyone needs to understand, the people at these town hall meetings have come alive. They are mad as hell , and not going to take it anymore. Washington doesn't respond to calm and collected. the only thing they understand is an angry voter at election time. This is their biggest fear.

Something else that needs to be understood. The anti healthcare reform movement isn't just about being against healthcare reform. It's about all the removals of choice that the Dems have placed in the fine print Americans are finally waking up as our Socialist Fascist government makes it's move on personal freedoms. More and more people see the same thing. The distrust of our government is crossing all political barriers.

Folks, the moves being made by our government isn't a Democrat or republican thing, it's going to take away freedoms from everybody The PTB want it all, and their making their move now, on every front. Look at the big picture guys. Why do you think there are people of all political beliefs waking up? They see the real meaning of our governments' actions. it's all about control, and the PTB are making their move now. So wake up and smell the coffee, while the government still lets you brew your own..

Sorry can't resist

9/11

Patriot Act

??

Profit

On a more serious note, Nazi Germany rose out of ashes of the 1930's depression. People were afraid of investment and corporations and they wanted government to take care of them.

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." - Thomas Jefferson

What would it take for a revolution or civil war to be justified? When our leaders come out and openly proclaim socialism as the new law of the land? When dissenters are rounded up and placed in FEMA camps? When population controls in put into place?

How far must we fall before our eyes once again stare into the manure that we are now walking in? Just exactly what will it take for this Republic to rise and push back the evil in our midst?

How overdue we are as a nation to refresh the tree of liberty. Will these tea parties become something more? Remember, the Boston tea party was the culmination of resistance to the Tea Act and one of the primary forces behind the American Revolution.

We need a revolution. We need a do over. We need to reestablish this Republic. The people should not live in fear of government any longer.

The fear is lawmaking in the hands of people that yell the most
with the most lies.

Get the law on your side an sell all the vaccines.
There is a catch on all Illuminati doings.
There is a new California law against pollution.
A state law.
Soon other states will follow.
So its nation wide and can't be stopped.

Gov. Brown of California had the patent on the catalytic converter
and had the emission laws changed to enforce it use.
It burns CO which the engine could burn and makes more CO2.

Friend, you are more awake and aware than you give yourself credit for; the lesson in the words attributed to the movie character of yoda are so very true, and our daily existence is predicated on the programming instilled in us since birth, in the spin and disinfo spewed forth everyday by the msm, plus virtually every single second of every program and commercial on the tv; all designed to produce nice controlled little sheep and generate as much negativity as possible.

There are many simple ways to begin fighting back against the programming and mind control of the matrix; start with love of self, look at your self and smile at the face in the mirror; know that you are an eternal being having a human experience and far more than the human you perceive yourself to be; know that there aren't any problems, just many varied solutions.

Do all things from love and love all that you meet; even love the people that irritate you or normally provoke your ire; see all things in a positive light and frame of mind, and you will notice that it is very contagious and spreads.
They can't defeat you; only you can, and use positive affirmations in all things; " I AM a being of love; I AM prosperous, I AM healthy, I AM loved."

Want to put a kink in the works? Give it a try.

Love and Light to all.

They are looking for an instigate a rebellion all the easier to convince the frightened among us to push for "legislation''that will control those dangerous "Domestic Terrorists."They want us out there protesting,rioting and anything else.It helps build the case for domestic bogey men.

Oh I'm awake... Make no mistake about that, it was just the other day that I experienced the emotion of ANGER that made me feel like I still was still asleep. I mean, they once got me wraped up in a world of fear, and then I thought I was free from that... only to find out that they are now just trying to p*ss me off.

Well I'm tired of being Angry about this system, because pretty soon they will get me to hate hate hate.... and that will only lead to suffering.

But you make a good point... something that many NDErs will testify too...

I can only say that this is easier said then done... Because I know I AM HUMAN. I might be an eternal being having a human experience... but the one thing i know as fact is tht I'm a human.

Humans can be easily programed ...





I mean... look at this movie trailer.... THEY WANT YOU TO GET MAD.

Great post.

I think that the most important thing to do is not get swept up in the negativity. I realize that the whole point of many of these forums is to vent and trade ideas, but, it seems that most people feed their negativity addiction through these forums as well. Like the OP said, you've got to love them all, because when it comes down to it, THEY (the government and even your worst enemies) ARE all just people too.

Hate is what causes people to want to do stupid things like alienate people you need and act without considering the consequences and if the stress it causes doesn't kill you it can get you killed...... Fear will cause people to either do nothing or take flight..... Yes they have changed tactics wanting us to either do something stupid or lose our minds and die from stress.... The last thing that the manipulative bastards want us to do is know what is going on so we are running in all directions in a frustrated state of mind trying to make sense of all of the misinformation that is constantly being dumped on us from every direction...... Trying to be informed means constant searching to validate the source but must be done to identify the bogus stories and I think it is this way by plan in order to drain mental resources, frustrate and confuse.... I started hating 40 years ago and after finally recognising what it has done to me, I have been slacking off and thinking a little more clearly.... I am not going to hate in an effort to stay focussed on when and whatever it is the future brings..... I just have a bad feeling about it, I am to old and hardened by combat to be fearful and I am going to sooner or later have to make choices and I want to make the right ones that aren't influenced by emotions.... The things that are now happening are things that I have read about for over 20 years and I am astounded at the accuracy of some writers that were published that far back..... I have given up on the people that refuse to open their eyes and the ones that think that think there is a black and white world we live in and if you aren't with us you are against us...... Our government hasn't been ours since 1913 for sure if not before and the strides being made to enslave all of us but the major players, are picking up speed, there is not enough time left to let fear and hatred continue to be what is weakening the spirit of us all...

The emotion: Fear causes your body's frequencies to operate at a lower level, which is the state of mind when the brain is susceptible to mind control programming.

Advertisers do this all the time, and it's called create "Scarcity".

Took you long enough.

I don't believe that my anger ever started with fear.

The only fear I have, and I'll openly admit it... I'm afraid of logging onto my online banking. Afraid of what I'll see there. Or what I won't see!

Else, there is nothing to fear. Only be angry with government that has betrayed us at every turn.

Anger leads to the Dark Side... Unless you learn control. Then it's all about execution of actions.

This is what I don't understand. Everybody wants drastic change, but they are afraid of pushing buttons because they don't want the bogey men after them.

Our forefathers knew this already. They knew that it takes true sacrifice to bring about that kind of change. You can't just have tea parties forever and ever. Heed my words, there will come a time in the near future when all those who are against the tyranny in our midst will have to either put up or shut up.

If you want to see if these tea parties had any real effect, wait for the mid-term elections and then see if the new guys are any difference than the old guys. They won't be. The entire system is corrupt.

A fine thread, OP.

And Yoda is, of course, one of the all-time best characters.

"Let go of your hate and fear. Forgive everyone. You will know the right way when you are at peace, passive. The Schwartz is in you!"

"Merchandising!"

By being afraid of TPTB and their plans, you are playing into their hands. They only get power when you give it to them. You believe them to be important and powerful because they told you they were...all your life.

If you eliminate the fear in your life, fear of death, fear of statistics they fire at you every day, fear of the unknown...that is when you truly can be free.

the fear of the unknown = the desire for faith.

Now essentially people break down into two groups.

Anger is productive and can inspire us to constructive action. Rage, on the other hand, is a destructive force.

You can make a conscious decision to not be angry and to not be afraid.

The longer you give people power over you emotionally or otherwise is as long as you will be their puppet to manipulate.

It is folly to blame ones own weakness on someone else.

Nobody makes you angry, YOU make you angry, YOU make you afraid.

Be aware.
