I'm not afraid of a school shooter, a movie shooter, or Islamo-Terrorists. That's it. I am not afraid of anything except perhaps Alzheimer's, colon
cancer, and inflation eating-away my savings so I have to live in a car when I'm old. So, my own personal part of the "We" that you claim are
clamoring for governmental takeover to protect "Us" from what we fear is non existent.
But here's the thing: no one has to actually be afraid for their plan to work. All that has to happen is that they get CNN and the NYT to tell us we
are afraid and that provides their excuse. After all, how do you know what anyone else is feeling, wants, or will tolerate? You don't. What you DO
have is the TV telling you what to think and feel, telling you what to believe about what others think and feel, and every other damn thing about the
world that you don't know first-hand.
How do we protect ourselves from "them"? First thing - turn off the god damn TV!
That's almost the entirety of it. Take back your mind.
Second thing (and this is the impossible task) get your neighbors, co-workers, family, the weird dude on the bus, to turn off their TV too, otherwise
it won't work.
I have always denied the premise of most criticism about Americans by denying the existence of a meaningful "we". There are damn few ways in which
we are a meaningful "we" because I do not think, feel, or behave like "you". And I suspect you do not think and feel like I do.
But I still have a problem. Because you (the generic "you") DO in fact watch TV, because you do in fact think, feel, and believe what they tell you
on TV, the things they do to you get done to me too because you will tolerate, and even, as is always said, insist upon the intrusions and violence
that government is willing and eager to commit.
So our true enemy is our neighbor, the one who believes what he is told and is willing to act on it. He also believes that he should turn you in for
behaving "weird" or differently from the herd. And he will do it, too. He will turn-you-in to the Man and feel good about himself for doing it.
"We" are truly screwed when it comes time to make a decision, to act to save ourselves, because most of "us" will go along, and, from that same
fear, will willingly and eagerly take you down with them.
They will take the "flu" shot, report to the detention/"safety" center, turn in their guns, report on their neighbors, and submit to the
"security" forces in whatever nonsense they trot out.
It's a done deal. All they have to do now is to (pardon the pun) pull the trigger, summon the bigass UFO's from the sky, project the 3D holographic
Jesus in the clouds, or whatever the heck it is they plan to do, and we will all fall down, right on cue.
