The real trap

We are trapped by our own thought.

Interesting idea. Have you ever put a kid in "time out?" As long as you get his agreement it works. He may complain bitterly, but there he is doing "time out."

Just multiply that by 10,000 or so and you get an idea of how our society is put together.

We are told and then agree that "the men in washington" are the true leaders. So they do stuff and because they are the "leaders" we tend to feel we can do nothing about it.

If the kid in "timeout" ever realizes that he is there because he agreed that was his punishment he is likely to call shenanigans and go do something else - to your chagrin and distress.

What have you agreed to?

That is true.

However, if he chooses to do this, then he will be doing so without that new bicycle, that I bought for him last week. Looks like I'll be getting my money back on that. Yeah, that should all work out just right. Getting closer and closer, to that brand new HD-TV.

The government doesn't give me gifts. There are a few distinct differences, between these 2 groups that you are comparing.

Exactly. Bribery. The two aren't that dissimilar.

In fact you're merely running your own government. To elaborate further. Bribing (which I use all the time too (3 boys 7,5, and 2) works. It's the next step after 'time out' is figured out. Mind you, Time out is also met with a stern warning of a physical repercussion. Governments ALSO do this.

Now go further.

It's cheaper/easier to bribe with one good gift rather than continued lesser gifts, no?

Apply that to real world. Easier/Convenient to funnel the money and keep it in Upper Class.

In order for ANY law to be effective society MUST voluntary submit to its observance.

This principle is required. So, in other words WE fully participate in our on enslavement.

We as a society and a civilized people do agree that some crimes we will not commit and we voluntary submit our will and behavior for the betterment of society as a whole. Murder, theft, rape, there are many of these crimes that as a civilized people we have agreed NOT to participate in and we as a society agree if any other person so chooses to commit these acts, we will act in masses to remove the offender from our society. This is civilization.

With that said there are other “laws” that have been imposed on us, without our agreement, that are intended to turn each of us into a “worker bee” of the system. These “laws” are designed to enslave your mind and actions and make you subservient to the established order.

Central Banking. Our founders knew that a Central Bank is the method in which a nation is most easily controlled by the few. This is why our founders wrote in to the Constitution that a Central Bank is illegal.

Income Taxes is another of the most blatant violations. Our founders understood that a direct tax on a persons wage is immoral and is designed only to keep the citizen in a perpetual state of poverty. Income Tax mind control has been so successful that everyday, ordinary citizens “believe” that each of us should “pay our fair share”, some have incorporated this belief system so deeply that a “Fair Tax” effort is underway.

Take a look at how the improper form of taxation has destroyed this nation by our leaders. Tariffs and indirect taxation is how our founders set up the revenue generation for this nation. If we as a county had been following these principles our manufacturing capabilities would have never left our shores. Cheap imports fueled by slave labor would have not driven our nation’s businessmen to bankruptcy.

You can also identify many other “laws” that by our own VOLENTARY submission, we have participated in our own enslavement.

What example can you add ?

Take a good long look at your life. You are surrounded by your agreements. If there is trash on the floor of your room, it is there as long as you feel in agreement with it. Even if you don't like it, you are still in agreement with it until you take ACTION to remove it. True magic. If you feel disagreeable you have only to find the agreement that is binding you to that disagreement. Once found, the bindings loosen. You are more free and more able to act and establish a different agreement.
