The demoralization of the United States has been coming for a long time. I do not mean that most Americans do not have values, or would not do the
right thing in most situations. What I mean by demoralization is a gradual shift away from self reliance, individualism, and rational questioning of
current affairs. The average American believes that the government is a good thing that looks after their best interests. They have been conditioned
to accept the rule of others, and not to question what their government says or does. It is amazing that Americans never question anything. This is a
consequence of several factors.
2. Popular Culture
4. The Collectivist State
1. The educational system programs us from a young age to accept the state, and never consider the validity of the actions it takes.
Read Deliberate Dumbing Down of America - Charlotte Iserbyt
It gives a detailed primary source account of how over the course of a century the educational system was designed to promote certain values. These
values include subservience to the state and the inability to use rational analysis through behavioral ism.
2. The cultural control adds to the educational indoctrination. Pre occupation with sports, popular culture, and other distractions leads most to
never consider their predicament. The average person relies on major network media to do their thinking for them, and they are UNABLE to think outside
of that frame work. I know lots of intelligent people who totally disregarded my points, but once Jesse Ventura had a television show about the points
they became feasible. It is not conscious in the minds of most, but the are hopelessly slaves to the media.
Read Brzezinski's Between Two Ages
This book is written by a major societal planner who basically says that people will be unable to have an opinion that that differs from tv talking
points. Without rational questioning, and absolute preoccupation with tv culture people are slaves to those that write the news.
3. Water fluoridation, GMO foods, and various other factors create a population with lower intelligence. At first glance seems to be beyond belief,
but once the initial aversion to such an idea passes reality sets it.
4. Nanny State
The collectivist state creates a population reliant, and totally subservient to the whims of the central planner. This takes a myriad of forms. The
single mother unable to survive without subsidies from the state will never dare to question the state. A business man who needs licensing for his
livelihood will never dare exercise free speech. Gradually, the reliance on the state shifts from temporary to permanent. People are unable to survive
without the state, and cannot see themselves outside of a state run system. All aspects of the economy begin to rely on government, and cannot
comprehend existence without the government subsidies. In all the people come to see collectivist aid as a right, and they will give up any amount of
freedom for security.
Read The Road to Serfdom by Hayek
This Austrian economist describes the inevitable shift from collectivism to tyranny. As soon as you allow the state to dictate some of your life it
will never end until it controls all of your life.
What to do? I fear the liberty movement is the only political chance we have. Realistically, a nationalist socialist may rise in reaction to the
international socialism that is being pushed. Cynthia Mckinney was right to say that the US is ripe for a dictator, and the only question is where
they will come from. Continued economic stagnation from central banking/ planning will combine with anger toward government to spark a growing
movement from some direction. What the low lever officers of the US military will do is the biggest wildcard in all this. My hope is that it will not
come to this, but I am not going to close my eyes to reality.
In the end though we are love. Our souls are immortal, and we are here to learn. Pain, challenges, and suffering are means to learn lessons. Never
lose sight of the love that dwells in each and every heart. The stormtrooper, the politician, and the terrorist are you. I am you and you are me.
Never give up faith in the creator, or love for the gift that all reality is. Everyday is a gift, and every experience is a teacher. Green sage has
got it right. Give and receive only love. You will find that all the problems of this world become opportunities to show love, and learn from love.
