The Coming Loss of Personal Liberty

(An old article from around 20 years ago and hopefully not too prophetic)

“It is the invariable habit of bureaucracies, at all times and everywhere, to assume…

that every citizen is a criminal.

Their one apparent purpose, pursued with a relentless and furious diligence, is to convert the assumption into a fact.

They hunt endlessly for proofs, and, when proofs are lacking, for mere suspicions.

The moment they become aware of a definite citizen, John Doe, seeking what is his right under the law, they begin searching feverishly for an excuse for withholding it from him.”

–H.L. Mencken

A Turning Point in Human History

We are quickly reaching a turning point.

One of those turning points that will effect every living man, woman and child on this planet forevermore.

Most thinking people in the Western World have seen this coming for quite some time. They have felt and observed the Worldwide pressures that have been building up during the latter half of the last Century and the early portions of this one.

They have seen Governments out of control in fierce battles for resources and power. They have lived through economic pressures that seem frustrating and unsolvable. They have experienced the destruction of Moral Values and the Educational System. They have seen our Intelligence Community fail miserably. They have watched the Pharmaceutical Industry come up with a pill for just about everything. They have seen the News Media compromised through fabrication of the Truth. They have seen our Military Machine wage wars in the highest technological fashion while sitting in their living rooms.

There have been many of us in the USA who have wondered how long the ‘Powers That Be’ can hold things together.

We know this ~ We feel this ~ We see this

But why is it any different NOW???

Why has this situation reached ‘Critical Mass?’

Let us examine the evidence.

At this period in History . . .

  1. The Federal Government doesn’t have to answer to the common man.

Who will you vote for in the coming election? Bush? Kerry? What are their differences? Strong points? Weak points? Which one is best suited to solve all of the many problems that seem to be springing up? Will it matter? What can you do to make a difference on the National Political scene? Write letters? Make phone calls? Join the NRA? Is the Federal Government justified in detaining American Citizens without trial? Are the elections rigged? Is any Member of Congress influenced by Money?

THINK! RESEARCH!

  1. Economic Conditions are tough

Stock market corruption is very real. We do have an unemployment problem. Major American Manufacturers are moving out of the country. The stock market is down. Gold and Silver are moving up.

BECOME DIVERSIFIED AND LEARN MARKETABLE SKILLS!

  1. The threat of Terrorism is very real

911 Really happened. The Federal Building in Oklahoma was actually blown up. American kids are dying around the world in our Defense. Suicide bombers really blow up other human beings.

FACE REALITY!

  1. Natural Disasters and Diseases are on the increase

People in other Countries are dying in mass numbers from something. Birds and animals are getting sick. Weather conditions ‘seem’ to be changing. The Center for Disease Control is concerned.

READ!

Will the end come during the next month? Year? 5 Years? 10 Years?

I don’t know, but all of the above conditions, occurring with increasing force and frequency are creating change in EXPONENTIAL ways.

Which is why this particular period in History is definitely a time to watch.

What effects will all of the above conditions eventually bring in the Long-Term?

When Trouble, either natural or man-made, strikes, it is human nature to cry out for help.

We cry out to our Parents ~ We cry out to our God ~ We cry out to our Science ~ We cry out to our Authorities for Help

Help us feel Loved; Help us feel Happy; Help us be Well; Help us feel Secure.

And what is their answer?

Yes, we will help you, you poor unthinking creatures.

We will help you primarily because we have a lust, a disease, for POWER and CONTROL!

First of all we will form committees to study the situation and then we will form committees to study the committees. And all of this costs money, so please give us some. If you don’t we will take it from you in one way or another. We are doing it for your own good.

And as we see it, everyone must perform a specific Task in Society; We will train you for these tasks and show you exactly how being a productive member in this machine will bring you everlasting fulfillment and happiness. There is nothing more and never was. You will be afraid to leave this role because you will feel unsafe.

Most of these tasks will only be found in the large Cities, where we can protect you much better. If you live anyplace else you will starve. You will eventually see the Wisdom of this. But if you don’t, we will provide you with a pill to make you calm and happy once again. If the pills don’t work we have places for troublemakers like you. No questions are allowed.

Eventually, we will all speak one language. The Official Language. We will all use one form of Money. The Official Money. We will all listen to the same News, read the same books, answer to the same Government, practice the same Religion.

And we will finally be SAFE!

What can you do if you don’t like this potential scenario?

AWAKE! AWAKE! AWAKE!

  1. Examine your priorities.

We are born, we go to school, we go to work, we retire and then we die. There may be a few high points and a few low ones. We may find Love. Is this all there is??? Are you spending the time allotted to you in the highest quality fashion that you can??? What if you die tomorrow??? Have you seen everything you wanted to see??? Been everywhere you wanted to go??? Done everything you wanted to do???

Is there a point to all of this madness or are you stuck in a dead-end role that you were taught would bring you the Ultimate in Happiness and Security.

THINK ~ THINK ~ THINK

IMAGINE ~ IMAGINE ~ IMAGINE

PLAN ~ PLAN ~ PLAN

WORK ~ WORK ~ WORK

  1. Protect yourself and your loved ones from the coming Dangers (and they are coming my friends, without a doubt).

Do you have some extra food and water in case you can’t get to the store??? Are you protected from Terrorist threats like radiation, bio-terrorism and more??? Will you get sick and die from one of the very many diseases that seem to be springing up??? Will you be the victim of some senseless crime because you didn’t have any means of defense and relied on the authorities to protect you??? Will you be laid off, starve to death or become homeless because you aren’t diversified and don’t have any marketable skills besides your specific role??? Will you be caught un-prepared on a cold and snowy night on some dark and deserted highway???
