We are all slaves and there is no freedom - PART 1
A proposal for a New Politico-Economic System
Past and Present Enslavement – Historical Facts
Let’s face it. The possibility of the United Kingdom, the USA, or France being occupied by a foreign power by force of arms is far beyond the realms of possibility. Yet the nationals of these counties often refer to the fight for freedom, meaning from some foreign foe.
Unfortunately, the news from the front is not good. We have lost and we are already slaves living in a type of feudal system where the difference is that at least the Lord of the Manor does not practice droit du seigneur. At least not by right of law.
History has been modified or fabricated to an incredible extent and even serious historians have been brainwashed along with the rest of us into accepting those fabrications as historical facts. The few historians who question the official versions are branded as fringe scientists and do not readily find employment in well-paying learning institutions.
We are the slaves of ‘The Controllers’, the people who have our politicians in their pockets. The same politicians that we, the people, vote into office using our supposed democratic rights.
True democracy has nothing to do with what currently masquerades as such in our lives. This series of articles will attempt to lead you through an analysis of historical facts and original thought to the only possible way out of our current enslavement. To real and practical democracy and true freedom.
WHY AND HOW WE ARE ENSLAVED
Every industrialized or expanding nation will invariably sacrifice its young in wars, for the sake of better business opportunities for its privileged class. In order for the privileged class to achieve this, it must do away with all originality of thought in the majority of its citizens and to reduce its citizenry into a standardized herd, making it easier to manipulate. The benefitting businessmen watch with approval when the dead and crippled are honoured as returning heroes, but they rely only on their non-evadable taxes to pay for the relevant compensations.
The same privileged class though, is actually subjugated to the will of - and act as the retainers of - a small number of extra powerful financial institutions which have in their pockets the governments of most countries, including the leadership of the only superpower, the USA. I call them “The Controllers”.
In other words, the politicians who rule us are actually the representatives of this small number of financial institutions. In consequence we are, in fact, under occupation.
THE MODERN BEGINNING
Our modern world enslavement began, oddly enough, with the invasion and conquest of England by the Normans in 1066. The descendants of William the Conqueror’s original Norman barons and the subsequent French and German additions to that privileged class by William’s descendants, but more especially their bankers, have ruled our lives for almost 950 years.
Britain is a classic example of how peoples’ freedoms are taken away from them either by force of arms or through the use of the power of immense wealth (or both) and they are subsequently brainwashed into accepting the situation of their slavery as normal. I shall, therefore, use the British example to illustrate my point.
In the case of William the Conqueror, you have the illegitimate son and heir of a very wealthy man, the Duke of Normandy, who uses the rules of Feudalism to achieve even more wealth, power and glory than his father left him. He puts together a few ‘grands seigneurs’ with their vassals and their peasants and with just 7,000 men in total, he conquers and terrorises England. He keeps 25% of the total land for himself and divides the rest of it amongst his followers, whom he names as Barons. Naturally, he does this on the understanding that his barons will pay him taxes and provide allegiance and military service when needed. The penalty for non-compliance was the forfeiture of the lands, titles and lives of the Barons.
When the heavy taxation caused a few native Englishmen to revolt in York, the repercussion was simply genocide. The Normans slaughtered every human being they could find in York and because some managed to escape by running away, the Normans also slaughtered every living animal they could find, thereby depriving the survivors of any means of sustenance and condemning them to a slow death by hunger. On his deathbed William confessed that this reaction had been ‘somewhat excessive’.
How do some members of the English population of today react to this atrocity? They vie amongst themselves to prove descent from the Normans. Even the idiotic hero of P. G. Wodehouse, Bertie Wooster, proudly makes a reference to his ancestors coming over with William the Conqueror, acknowledging in fact that the descendants of those barons still ruled the land at his time. Some Scottish and Welsh people appear to be an exception to this and still yearn for ‘freedom’, mainly because the conquerors at some stage decided that it was less troublesome if they would actually learn to speak English, which they began to do in the 15th century.
The descendants of those Barons established by William 950 years ago still rule the fortunes of the British people and to a great extent have been instrumental in creating the ruling class which controls the lives of the rest of us today. The feudal system is alive and well in a 21st century edition.
WHAT IS FREEDOM?
It is an error to refer to democracy and freedom in the same context. Anarchy would be a system which comes closer to freedom, but then even anarchists do not agree on what form anarchism should take
The politicians would have you believe that democracy in its current form is freedom. However, democracy relies on the illogical principle that 50% plus 1 people can impose their will on the other 50% less 1, without causing discontent, unfairness and one sided corruption with potential revolt lurking in the background; and the politicians would also have you believe that by voting, you are determining your own future. In fact what we get is equivalent to being given a car without a steering wheel. A car which is operated by the remote controls of organized and manipulated media, brainwashing, patriotic hype, shamelessly blatant propaganda and downright lies.
The politicians rely on the fact that freedom, in its purest form, is frightening; as it would mean the right to do whatever we wish freely, without any restrictions. That comes under the heading of anarchy in the Greek meaning of the word, meaning without a leader. This, however, would entail serious dangers because others must essentially have the same right. But having the same right to do whatever these others might wish freely might mean that these others might end up robbing and killing the rest of us, as in the case of William the Conqueror.
At the end of the day we sacrifice our freedom for the sake of a MEASURE of safety from roaming bandits who might have the strength to take everything from us, including our lives, by allowing a ruling class to manipulate and rob us at will, but within manageable feudal limits.
So, politicians rely on the fact that true freedom is potentially too costly an experiment to attempt, because it might potentially lead to slavery or death.
Ergo, there is no such thing as freedom
The words democracy, patriotism and religion are the basic tools in the arsenal of all crooked politicians. So when you come across a political party which calls itself “Christian Democrats”, or “Muslim Brotherhood” hold on to your wallet very tightly. If the word “Patriotic” is added to the name and it becomes “The Patriotic Christian Democratic Party” or “The Patriotic Muslim Brotherhood”, then emigrate as soon as possible.
