I do hope that you get well deserved Applauses for an intelligent and to the point opening post !! All I can give you is a Flag and a Star since I
can't give you more. Your words carry much needed weight.
All of the reasons you mention are the reasons why I live (in my head and so often) in my past.
There was a time, when I was young, where I could go by the river with friends, make a fire, bring our guitars, play music and drink beer till we'd
fall asleep, to wake up to policemen asking us if all was fine and to be careful...THAT was freedom.
There was a time where we would leave our house without locking the doors. There was a time where we would help our neighbors if drama struck. There
was a time where we could leave our bikes on our front lawns. There was a time where the world was ours for the taking, we had dreams and a great
future to look up to.
I remember watching The Prisoner
with Patrick McGoohan and thinking "Man...is this guy ever
gonna get out of it??..."
We are ALL prisoners now. Imprisoned in a system that is built on a science that makes you believe that you are free. Isn't the best slave the one
who thinks he is free?
You are free to have the life you want. But follow the rules. You are free to buy your house but make sure you don't lose your job or else...You are
free to acquire anything you want, just work harder. Yeah...make money, the more you work, the more you get...and be sure to SPEND it. Cause the more
you'll get, the more you'll HAVE to work. Just follow the rules...
I have two boys that are adults now and even though they're doing fine, I am sad that they'll never live what freedom really means.
The only thing that the Elite had left to do to totally control us was to get everybody to "cocoon"...to become individualists. They have succeeded
in just a few decades. Stay at home, work hard, play games online, surf the internet, watch TV, watch movies, read, text...just don't be in groups
anymore. Groups is NOT a good idea.
Don't go on private properties now (or by the river) and party...you'll be in trouble. Lock your doors. Stay inside, stay safe...Your neighbor's
house went up in flames? Screw him. It didn't happen to me. That little old lady wants a seat on the bus? Screw her. I paid as much as she did. Be
sure to have a lock on your bike or kiss it goodbye. And anything else around your house for that matter.
I used to go to bed at night and wonder in amazement what tomorrow would bring. Now I go to bed at night and worry of what tomorrow will bring. But
it's all good. I am a good citizen. I follow the rules. And I should thank the Elite for my golden chains...
As you said...
God Help Us, God Help Us all !!
