The OathKeepers are a great organization, though I think you may be looking at this from the wrong angle. Before the American government takes on or
takes out its own citizens, it firsts demonizes them and indoctrinates the rest of the country along those lines. We can even see this on a small
scale today with drug users or other "criminals" guilty of politicial crimes (crimes that don't produce a victim) or even the magic term
"terrorism". If the government deems someone a terrorist or criminal, they could be hung from a pole in central square without so much as people
batting an eye.
Put yourself in the shoes of the police. Would you fire on a group of citizens exercizing their right to protest? Surely not! However, would you fire
on a group of terrorists hell bent on taking over the capital to impose their will on everyone else? Sadly, most of the sheeple would answer "no" to
the former and "yes" to the latter, eventhough it would be the same group of people.
You are absolutely correct. We had seen even legislators or members of the gov civil service being smeared and slime if they dare so much as to spill
beans, making their words dishonourably by the presumption of acts allegedly
committed by them make them not to be trusted or believe.
We have seen this tactic used often, even by members here on ATS. But it is already long overused, as many of the awakened are learning to look beyond
the smears and seek instead for the message rather than the messenger, to look at a person in the eye, who is innocent till proven guilty.
Which is why sites are ATS is important to discuss, debate and explore issues in greater depth, so that the common man may consider every angle. There
is no human that can be fully brainwash. Such techniques do not exist, and not even permantly. Simply because no human is born out of a rock.
We are beings capable of emotions, and what drives us in life is our hopes and dreams, fueled by love and be loved. To have not such, would only mean
a life of absolute loneliness, and no human is that capable for he is not robot built, try as he might. It is our weakness as well as our strength.
Our families play the greatest role in society, for without the family unit, there would have been no society or civilisation. We would be animals
living off the wild, individually till we ceased to exist by killing one another. It is from our families that we learn emotions of love ...and
hate...of what is right and what is wrong during our formative years.
We will learn new issues daily, and by what we had previously learnt, we consider, discuss and debate upon it, and will either reject or accept such
thoughts provided it may help enhance or correct our ways.
Authorities may attempt to brainwash or misled the masses, but if more are drawn to read and discern, they will sooner or later discover truths and
realities on their own. No mind can be owned if it refuses to be owned. We are our own man, working for the collective good, for within the 'we' is
you and I, and that's how our society and mankind had survived and progress and will do so for anothe millenia.
Thus, we must always maintain contact with our fellow men, never to isolate ourselves, but to reach out to others of all kinds, to share ( not to
impose for each has his free will) if we are to progress inclusively where none gets left behind beyond the lies and deceits that the control masters
seek to dominate and enslave us.
