Stop Being Afraid -- No More Living In Fear

Updated on February 2, 2019

Fear = Slavery

Fear is everywhere, we have all been programmed to fear something and that is why we allow so much intrusion into our freedom. Benjamin Franklin: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” People who live in a constant state of fear will give up their liberty to feel safe, but people who are not afraid will do no such thing.

All the mass shootings and terror events have put the world into a state of fear, and that is why humanity is willingly giving up its freedom. We agree to all kinds of stuff that we wouldn't agree to if we weren't so afraid all the time. We will submit to all kinds of stuff, all the time: police checks anytime -- because we are afraid ... and we think they are doing something to keep us safe; what they are really doing is invading our privacy and violating our basic human rights. It is absolutely unacceptable, but we have been conditioned not to know or care that we are being abused; that's why all of this stuff goes on unchallenged, and continues to get worse.

Being in a constant state of fear causes us to willingly give up our freedom and enter ourselves into a state of slavery, but we don't seem to realize that's what is happening. When we have become nothing more than a fearful slave, we are then at such a low emotional and energetically suppressed and oppressed state that controlling us is a simple process. It is happening all the time, right before our eyes, and we barely even notice.

Aldous Huxley: “There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution."

Words and Language

In George Orwell's book, 1984, "newspeak" was a language of meaningless words that limited and restricted people's ability to verbally express anything in very much detail. Orwell pointed out that we think in words; consequently, if words representing certain thought processes are removed from whole societies, entire concepts and ideas can be completely eliminated from those societies.

Words are very important indeed, and if no-one has noticed, the human vocabulary seems to be getting smaller. What is happening to our language? Text message? Predictive text? Spell check? These things have already reduced the human capacity for words and advanced expressions of thought through language and will continue to do so ... until when?

People can already barely spell words, put together sentences, or use punctuation anymore. This limits people's ability to read anything above a very child-like basic level. This will also affect our ability to communicate. If you can't turn your thoughts into words, how do you expect to communicate with other people? You can't.

People of today cannot comprehend the writing of people hundreds of years ago, and it has to do with how our language is being restricted. Think of this: if cursive writing is removed from schools, after just a few generations no-one will be able to read documents written in cursive writing -- which will disconnect them from their history and make them dependent on the "authorities" for their history.

"He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” - George Orwell.

“One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them." - Aldous Huxley.

Edward Bernays: "We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of."

Political Correctness Ends Free Speech

"You don't want to say anything that will upset anyone, now do you?"

This has a massively limiting effect on free speech and the ability to fully express ourselves. If we don't even have the basic ability to freely express ourselves or the knowledge to do so, then we sure do have a lot of nerve calling ourselves "free". That's supposed to be a joke, right? George Carlin: “Political correctness is America's newest form of intolerance, and it is especially pernicious because it comes disguised as tolerance. It presents itself as fairness, yet attempts to restrict and control people's language with strict codes and rigid rules. I'm not sure that's the way to fight discrimination. I'm not sure silencing people or forcing them to alter their speech is the best method for solving problems that go much deeper than speech."

You can't say this; you can't say that! We are so afraid, afraid in general, but especially of offending anyone. You better watch what you say, don't bring it up, don't want to upset anyone, that's impolite, that's insensitive. That's this and that's that ... it is time to stop caring about any of that! My goodness, we are like bugs that have gotten themselves stuck in a spider's web -- we can't move! And that is exactly the plan, because the spider always immobilizes its prey before it comes in for the kill. We are the prey, and if we don't move beyond all this politically correct nonsense, the spiders will move in for the kill; they always do.

Haven't you had about enough of it?

We have rules about everything ... in some places they come to measure your lawn with a ruler. If it is too tall, you are in some kind of trouble. "Your grass is half an inch too tall; consequently, we have mowed it for you. You now owe us $100.00 ... pay up, or men with guns will come to your door and take you to jail!" It is ridiculous, but real!

Ridiculous stuff like this is going on all over the place ... children are being threatened by police for having lemonade stands in some places -- it really has gone that far! Why are we putting up with all this crap? How 'bout we all have lemonade stands at the end of our driveways all summer long? What are they going to do?

They bully us because we let them; we don't stand up to them ... and what do all bullies do? They bully ... but only until someone stands up to them. If we all refused to obey and comply with their idiotic rules and regulations, they would have to get rid of them. There would be no way of enforcing stupid laws of control and domination, but we won't do that. Why? Because ... we are ... afraid. And why are we afraid? Because, the people who want us to obey their stupid laws have made us afraid.

At some point, we are going to have to make a line in the sand, and say, "Here, and no further." Then we need to take a few steps forward and redraw the line.

Bewildered Mice

We are living in a massive mind game that we never get a break from: go here, stop there, do this, don't do that, you can't say this, you have to say that, and all that kind of stuff ... while more and more of our lives are managed, taken over, and controlled by people we don't even know exist.

We have become like mice in a laboratory experiment: if you put a mouse in a maze and shock it when it goes where it is not supposed to go, then after a long enough time you can take away the shock and the mouse will never go where it is not supposed to. Why? Because it is afraid. And that, is exactly what is happening to us: penalty here, fine there, more laws, more regulation, punishment for this ... all the while reward, gain, pleasure, from this over here and that over there -- for that which serves "them" and their "agenda".

Insane World

People don't understand how things work, how societies are manipulated, and how people's lives are controlled. People don't realize that there is a massive psychological operation that we are constantly being subjected to. No wonder the world is as crazed and ludicrous as it is -- it's an insane asylum.

"Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it." - John Lennon.

All this stuff is forcing us into smaller and smaller lives. We are being battered into submission, conformity, and acquiescence by a ruthless Control System that cannot be challenged. We are supposed to be good little barcoded computer terminal robots who believe and do whatever we are told -- China is what our future looks like, if we don't snap out of it ... and soon too, because they are almost there already.

How are billions of people in China controlled by a few people? Because the billions are afraid, so they do what they are told ... and will never rise up to the dictatorship because they are programmed not to. It is time for us to stop being afraid and stop living in fear. What are we doing living that way? Not one more second!

It is time for another conversation with the mirror: "I refuse to live in fear for one more second!" How do you wanna spend your time? Living in fear? No more! Not one more second!
