Black Sabbath - Die Young
Behind a smile
There's danger and a promise to be told
You'll never get old
To be locked away and still to think you're free
"The illusion of freedom [in America] will continue as long as it is profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes
too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way
and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater."
The Face of Your Enemy III: The Invisible Prison
For many the ultimate fear is that one day jackbooted soldiers will pound on the door and take us and our loved ones away to some interment camp -
where we will be stripped of our rights, implied, basic, and those lawfully awarded us - left only to slave as laborers until we die a lonely,
desperate, and unsung death. For years the rumblings about www.popularmechanics.com...
]FEMA camps have
caused many a conspiracy theorist to lose sleep and to pack their bug out bags carefully. After all, the loss of self-determination violates every
single aspect of the human condition. It is morally repugnant to anyone of sound mind. So the terror of the idea seizes us... and just as we would do
with shapes moving in the darkness... we watch carefully - even as we fight our reflexive need to simply look away and ignore the danger.
We fidget and whistle, hoping that the bogeyman never comes near.
What if I were to tell you that the good news is that TPTB do not need such camps at all? That the logistics of one percent of the population trying
to imprison the remaining ninety-nine percent were simply too untenable for such things to even be remotely possible? What if I were to say that the
good news is that it actually would be contrary
to a globalist agenda to imprison the lions share of the population? Would that help you better
to sleep at night? I know it helps me do so!
But don't relax too quickly...
What if I were to tell you the bad news? That these camps are not a threat to use because they would be redundant?
What if I were to offer, to
you, the theory that we are all already so thoroughly and effectively imprisoned that escape is virtually impossible? Would that shock you? Anger you?
Would you like a tour of the prison you are currently in? Please, allow me...
Part I - Borders
If we are going to discuss our prison, we might as well begin with the most obvious construct of our virtual jail. Borders. These are the most easily
understood and accepted walls that surround us. In fact most of us are happy to have borders. Border, after all, are what keep us
. The fact that borders ( excluding natural barriers, such as mountain ranges, rivers, or coastlines ) are simply lines on a map - and have
no real world tangibility - is something most of us don't seem to care about. Lines on maps make us comfortable. They inform us about ourselves. From
above, panning out, our street gives way to our neighborhood, then to our community, then to our county, state or province, region, nation, continent,
and hemisphere. Each of these outward steps informs us of who we are. Who we were born as. And who we choose to be.
If the natural boundaries and lines on a paper map don't work to keep things comfortable for us - then we build walls and hire armed personnel to make
that those lines on the map are made real. That they become tangible.
Rarely do we stop to think of three very important things about borders...
1) Even as they serve to keep them
out - they also serve to keep us
2) The nations on the other sides of those borders probably are as xenophobic about them as you are. They
don't want you making any unannounced
3) In most cases your self-identity was defined by the borders you were born into - something you had absolutely no choice in whatsoever.
A modern democracy is a tyranny whose borders are undefined; one discovers how far one can go only by traveling in a straight line until one is
So now that we see the most visible wall of our prison more clearly... Let us move a bit deeper inside our comfortable little gulag.
Part II - Property, Possessions, and Debt: Stuff You Own That Owns You
Now to take a look at the shackles that keep us in our prison. The strange and abstract concept of debt:

]US Debt Clock
Scary isn't it? And that's before our personal, individual credit debt:
Today, the average American owes approximately $47,000. To put that number in perspective: It costs approximately $35,000 to start either an H&R
Block or a 7-Eleven franchise; $40,000 can buy a three-bedroom house in some parts of Orlando, Fla., (and home prices are similar in hard-hit
neighborhoods across the country); and one year at a private high school will run about $50,000.
Our average level of debt is also more than most of us earn in a year. For 2010 (the latest year for which figures are available), the Social Security
Administration calculated that the average American salary was $41,673.83.

Though the numbers are reminiscent of Heisenberg and his uncertainty principle - always changing and impossible to directly nail down - using the
above for the sake of example: Each and every one of us reading this is arguably chained to about $97,957.00
worth of debt.
Debt is an insidious method of imprisonment because not only does it give others power over us; It also plays upon several aspects of our human
nature. Being in debt forces us to feel obligated.
It plays upon our inherent desire to do right by others. The vast majority of us want, very
much, to be regarded in high esteem by our peers and our community in general. Pride makes us highly desirous of paying our own way and paying our own
bills. Those who seek power understand that about us. It's how they've gotten us to accept usury
normal way of life - despite the fact that even the ancients knew the evils inherent to the practice:
From above link entitled "usury"
Deuteronomy 23:19 Thou shalt not lend upon interest to thy brother: interest of money, interest of victuals, interest of any thing that is lent
Deuteronomy 23:20 Unto a foreigner thou mayest lend upon interest; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon interest; that the LORD thy God may
bless thee in all that thou puttest thy hand unto, in the land whither thou goest in to possess it.
