I list all these factors in an attempt to explain America's slide into chaos and confusion, into repression and insecurity. It is an attempt to at least investigate why America has deviated from its original values of self-reliance and liberty into conformity and dependence on a system that everyone knows does not have the best interests of each individual at heart.
There was a time, before this modern, technological metroplex was fully organized and there was still undeveloped space to be yourself and survive on your own creativity and perseverance, when you could make out of life what you wanted to make out of it. That time is gone.
Now there is only choosing a path that is provided for you, which the rigid doctrines of formal school education have hammered into your mind. I think this is why so many people start out in life as one thing, and wind up as another. As they mature and grow after they're out of school, if they're lucky, they eventually find out what they really want to do and do it. I think the homeschoolers find that out more quickly, and suffer much less growing up without the rigid, militaristic propaganda that is suffused into their brains by public schools.
What enters into the equation most profoundly is government lying, false history, and the artificial reality that America's system of public education is required to teach, on penalty of teachers being fired from their jobs if they deviate from this manufactured, manipulated consensus view of reality.
In concert with a manipulated mass media apparatus that is designed and directed by the people who also manipulate countries into making war on each and poison their own products for profit, America now is peopled by a population that has been totally deceived by the history that schools and the media have presented to them, which is resulting in the desecration of the environment, the wasting of millions of lives in contrived conflicts, and the poisoning of everyone's lives by exactly the information that has been taught in schools and dutifully promoted by an utterly dishonest media apparatus.
Combined with the debilitating health influences of a medical system that suppresses genuine cures and promotes profitable but ultimately poisonous solutions to medical problems, we now have a population that is now more gullible than ever, but also sicker than ever.
All the attempts of well-meaning people to live healthier and more peaceful lives are blunted by an establishment that emphasizes fear and works to stamp out liberty and individuality in favor of compliant drones who don't question what they are told, and even though they know, in their hearts, that what they are told are lies.
It has always been that way, they smugly mutter to themselves.
As a consequence we have lost our most precious American heritage. Following what we have been taught and what we have been told has made us both dumber and sicker, and by now the process is so advanced, we have absolutely no idea how to extricate ourselves from this trap.
More than half the population depends on government assistance for its survival, and those with the gumption and preparation to fend for themselves, their freedom is constantly being whittled away by macabre pronouncements by deceitful bankers and insincere politicians.
All Americans are at risk of losing their property and their lives as a result of unopposed perversions of what was supposed to be the American way of life.
The opposition to this trend is sparse and fragmented. Washington lies to us daily, about money, about radiation, and about what it's going to do to all of us after buying all those bullets, and then clamoring for the need to take away our guns.
Can that mean anything else but that there is a plan to murder us?
No, it can't. It should be obvious to anyone with a brain who can still think. But because of those influences listed at the top of this essay, we can no longer think, and as a result we can no longer act. We're sitting ducks, waiting to be killed.
Unable to put aside our petty religious and philosophical differences, unable to agree that the real danger is cutthroat Washington politicians who have no allegiance to anything except they money they are able to steal from us, unable to see through the false education and information we have received that has gradually grown more cynical throughout the 20th century and into the 21st, we are incapable of defending ourselves from the rich predators who have planned and plotted our demise, our fleecing, our destruction.
Those who tell the truth get put in jail, dosed with Thorazine, or worse. Those who lie and go along with the program get rich. In between, a lot of soldiers who tried to play along kill themselves out of shame and horror for the crimes they have committed against people they never knew who didn't deserve to be murdered.
And the vast majority of Americans just sit there in front of the television, complaining fashionably about this atrocity or that, showing their neighbors that they really know what's going on with this philosophical gem or that dietary regimen.
Meanwhile, the local cops get their armored vehicles and automatic weapons, plus their training in Israel about how to kill children and poor people. They keep talking about the terror threat, without realizing that they themselves are the terror threat to absolutely everyone in the world.
Most of the rest of the population, deluded and delirious from fluoride, TV, airborne aluminum, poisonous biotech wheat (the GM version cannot be digested and is killing millions), pathetic education and deliberately misleading information, and a uncountable other deliberately disease-bearing influences, doesn't have a clue about what's happening, and worse, doesn't care. They're too busy with their trivia to consciously calculate they're speeding toward their own premature and unnecessary deaths.
Likely if you're reading this you're not one of those. Perhaps now would be a good time to inform those who don't realize it.
Screaming in their faces would be particularly appropriate. And I know, most won't listen. I've been doing it for a long time. Perhaps you can think of something better to do. Who knows? Maybe you might save someone's life. Although it's not very likely, at this late date, that you will save your own.
