Originally posted by TryptychIn this accelerating spiral to dystopian, Orwellian nightmare, one could ask.. exactly WHEN and WHY did

profit, who divide us and turn us against each other.. didn't the history teach us nothing?
I had this sort of discussion with my uncle who is a lawyer and a radical. He was going through law school when Watergate was happening and he was
inspired by that to make the law his life's work.
We came to the conclusion that high school/ or prep school/second form, whatever you may call it, is not the place to teach the kids about Noam
Chomsky or Howard Zinn.
It's too much information. 16, 17, 18 years old is too young to understand and too early to teach that murderers wear the most expensive suits, that
criminals live in the US Government and income taxes on wages of a man's labor is illegal confiscation of personal property.
It's too much.
At the same time we agreed (me and my uncle) that preparation of the intellect is the most important goal in high school. Not to learn by wrote,
verbatim, repetition, multiple choice quiz at the end...
Sometimes it takes 15 years to prepare for just 1 battle and you better be ready when it comes because the enemy does not relent, ever. And you might
only get one chance to fight so you better be ready.
My chance came in 2003 and I won against two corrupt local judges. The judges served jail time and had their law licenses revoked because they were
taking drug money inside the court of law!!!!
Each person can have a mission, an individual mission, as long as they are fighting it and winning I am sure everything will turn out right. I didn't
rely on a "movement" to join in a futile search for personal identity.
I went to face the enemy on his turf and they lost. And I did that alone. Sometimes the battles are not in the newspaper headlines or broadcast on the
nightly news... but you can rest assured that there are battles for freedom every single day .... there are losses on both sides, too.... if I had
lost my criminal case against these corrupt judges they could have ruined my life. The penalties I was up against were 1 year in jail and 10,000
All on trumped up charges of course.
The prosecutor against me was a neglectful fool. But you know what? With the two new vacancies he was able to move up the chain of command after he
won an election for a judgeship in that same jurisdiction.
That means, the fight keeps going, it keeps going even when judges are lost, even when the corrupt have been chased from their chambers... some other
dimwit will simply move up and take his place.
Like in the Matrix. When you beat Agent Smith he simply teleports into the body of someone else and comes after you again again and again.
I wrote too much. But I heard your plaintive call for justice and positivity.
