You make some very valid points, but I'm sorry you feel "the only way to be free is to die". It may sound cliche, but truly - you are only a slave to
them if they own your mind. I know you have heard this before, but sometimes it's good to be reminded of things.
Will the people rise up and "take their country back"? Maybe. Probably not. People are consumed by their xbox, direct tv, facebook, and collecting
worthless paper. It really does seem like the vast majority is in a trance of sorts, or drugged up to the point where they can't even hold
But would that really solve anything anyway? Let's say that we scrapped the whole system, and started over, with just the constitution and the
original bill of rights, and built from there. Would that work?
The entire system is an illusion. It's just an idea. It's fictional. Constitutions across the world claim to be based on God's law, which by the way
says that man's law holds no weight whatsoever. But then it all got perverted somehow because a bunch of guys started writing all these other "laws"
and convinced people to abide by them and the people themselves perpetuated this by going along without question.
The solutions, IMO, are to step away from the system. Refuse to go along with it. That doesn't mean quit your job and go hide in the woods, but start
growing a garden.. get to know your neighbors.. become more self-sufficient. get away from the monetary system as much as possible by turning your
fiat paper into precious metals, or goods. Getting to know your neighbors, and really building community is soooo important for all of us to do. And
it can be hard, I know. But think about it - we can all see that the system is going to crash sooner or later. When that happens, what are we going to
do? If you've built up some community, comprised of other like minded people who have also turned (or have at least begun) away from the system,
you're not going to have nearly as much to worry about.
If even half of the people that sit around on these websites started doing this in their own real life, it would spread a lot faster than one may
initially think. Try this - Go around your neighborhood one week with flyers inviting people to a screening of (whatever documentary film you think
would wake people up). Then, on a seperate occasion, go around your neighborhood with flyers inviting people to a neighborhood home gardening expo (or
whatever you want to call it). Put something like "Learn how to grow your own fresh vegetables, in a short time, with little effort!" Invite people to
bring different seeds, tools, knowledge, etc. to trade with others. Make a block party or just a casual neighborhood gathering out of it. If at all
economically feasible, offer refreshments. This is an otherwise free event. Something anyone can do anywhere, who desires real change.
See which one brings more people, and see if you notice a difference in the vibe at the two events.
I think documentary screenings are a great idea. There are many documentary films that have helped me open my eyes over the years, and I show/pass on
some of the better ones to other people. I've had both good and bad responses to that. I've learned not to give people too much info at a time, and
I've learned to show a little discernment when passing on information. Not everybody wants to wake up.
But after your whole neighborhood has watched (whatever film) and are now in a state of shock, or not, what's the next step? Knowledge is useless
without action. And politics will never be anything people agree on, so that's out. What now?
Everyone likes to eat food (at least 90% of the humans I know do it on a DAILY BASIS). Maybe not everyone thinks growing their own garden is fun, but
those who are even half-awake can see the importance in it. And money is an issue for everybody these days. Growing your own garden can save money in
many ways. Start up costs are minimal and in the long run you'll be saving much more than some fiat currency. You'll be saving your health too, and
the health of your loved ones. Even if you've never planted a thing in your life, it's not hard to learn. You have the internet, there's a lot of good
info out there that can teach even the most incompetent person how to grow some vegetables. (Incompetent people are people too, thus they posses the
spark of life, making them a creator, just like you and me)
I don't think we are all doomed, and I don't consider myself anybody's slave. They can keep trying to take more and more of our freedoms, but they'll
never succeed unless you allow them to. Stop seeing yourself as a slave to their system. Sure it sucks that you "really don't own your house" and you
have to be licensed and insured to drive your own car, you may have half of your paycheck taken from you before you even see it, the politicians are
vigorously working to make us pay more to live, and there seems to be more and more chaos being ratcheted up all across the world.... But if that's
all you focus on that's all your going to see. And that's what will manifest in your life. If you instead, see all the negative as an opportunity to
1- see that which you are not and 2- make a choice to instead produce something positive from it, then you'll be on the right track to stepping away
from the system (which is fictional anyway). The more we all focus on the real solutions, the faster we'll be able to simply wash our hands of the
ridiculousness (trillions of dollars worth of "debt" with interest that we're supposed to pay to some rich people, property taxes that keep you from
owning your own property, 50% of your paycheck taken for taxes, and otherwise paying to be alive on the planet you were born). Some of it is so absurd
it makes me wonder how it's even lasted this long.
Too many people are locked into a state of fear. If we could each stop fearing what may be to come, and start connecting with each other so we can
CHOOSE what is to come, then TPTB will cease to have any real effect.. We are all powerful beings, we jest need to stop giving our power to others.
Especially to those who seek to do nothing but abuse it.
WE are in charge of this life here, and WE are the ones who are responsible for what happens to us. Sure, not everything is in your control all the
time, but your choices are ALWAYS in your control. If we all made more positive choices, the things that we have no control over will cease to have
any control over us.
Besides, do you really think that they can kick us ALL out of our homes, arrest ALL of us, stop ALL of us from growing our own gardens, take ALL of
our guns, force vaccines on ALL of us, listen to ALL of our conversations, kill ALL of our dogs, shut down ALL of our kids lemonade stands, force ALL
of us through naked body scanners, microchip and track ALL of us, kidnap ALL of our children, or even take the internet from ALL of us? Short of a
large scale "terror" attack or other large scale attacks (nuclear sites, if HAARP can really cause earthquakes, volcanos, flooding, etc) I don't see
how they can pull this off. And if they flood the earth, or blow it up - then we're all done with so what would be the point? They wouldn't even have
their 500million to keep the machine running if that happened, so they would be screwed too.
There is power in numbers, and there are A WHOLE HECK OF A LOT MORE of us than there are of them. The trick is for people to realize that we're all US
- there is no "them".
