Would you find it disturbing to realize that your outrage on these side issues has served as a smoke screen for what could easily be described as the most dangerous geopolitical escalation in human history? The Trump administration is stoking tension on multiple fronts, inviting confrontations which will directly and indirectly involve Russia via Syria, Iran, China and North Korea. The stakes are nuclear and Trump is holding the keys. He has already done a 180 on his anti-war campaign positions, he and his cabinet have commenced saber rattling in earnest, indicating that “steps were already underway” to take down Assad, and the left is almost daring him to pull the trigger.
Every American in the United States who VOTES is willfully complicit in the objectification, subjugation, enslavement and tyrannical oppression of every other American citizen within this theoretical ‘Republic.’
“As distinct from other peoples, most Americans do not recognize—or do not want to recognize—that the United States dominates the world through its military power. Due to government secrecy, our citizens are often ignorant of the fact that our garrisons encircle the planet.”
We do not support freedom, anywhere. we have the world’s largest military that secures the human and natural resources of other nations for our corporations to harvest. Their profits are funneled through the banking centers that then rig the political game to make sure nobody challenges the rigged game that they gained profit and power from. We certainly do not support freedom here at home and our constitutional rights are being stolen while wealth is being sucked up to those at the top.
There are times when I come across something that so encapsulates what I’m thinking that I find it a better use of this space to share that those words than to reinvent the wheel. Today, that happened again. Here are those words.
“The answer is to govern YOURSELF, and allow me to do the same. If I harm you, or you harm me, we each have a right to defend ourselves from that. But what NO ONE has the right to do is say “There are things in this world that might, possibly, under certain circumstances, in some nondescript point in the future, perhaps cause harm or offense to you or someone else. So, because of this, myself and a small group of others hereby declare that we have the right to rule over all the rest of you for your own protection. We also declare the right to demand regular payment from you to cover the cost of enforcing said rule and protection. This is NOT optional…we’ve drafted a very official looking piece of paper (it’s written in calligraphy, so you know to take it seriously!) as a contract establishing all of this…a contract to which you will be automatically considered beholden to from birth, regardless of whether you actually consent or not. If you resist our services or refuse to pay us for them, we will send our blue-suited winged monkeys to arrest and imprison you. If you resist imprisonment, our blue-suited winged monkeys have been given the ok to kill you. Again, this is all for your own protection and totally NOT a scam to allow the ruling class to funnel taxes into their own pockets and create monopolistic market structures for the filthy rich to avoid free market competition . – Yours truly, Every government ever in the history of forever-ever ” —Billy Deily
