The Life Between Absolutism and Democracy
Standing Between Tyranny and Toleration
Our lives have been hijacked. We find ourselves enmeshed in a running knife fight whose nature has revisited us innumerous times throughout the history of humankind. It has snuck in through a back window of our lives and crept down our hallways to crouch behind our sofa where it peers from the depths of shadow upon us. We have barely begun to notice it, our awareness of it fresh as an early spring morning with a late winter storm bearing down from the north and just topping the crest of our moment where like a deer in headlights we have frozen to stare in its blaze.
It is an old story of conflict which ever dramatic, captures not only whole countries of people but of their very ideas and cultures. From the shadows it emerges griping us with a disciplined despotism reaching out and smiting our freedoms and notions of democracy, representation, and ethical conduct. It seems to espouse a mutual hatred for all life as it bears no tolerance toward any man, woman, or child. This beast is absolute. And it has stalked us and our democratic republic over many generations.
Our complacency and false sense of confidence in our personal security and trusted infrastructure has brought us into the reach of this shadow. We have drifted from our brilliance. We wake to find our foundations of security crumbling around us. Some of us have lost our homes, our dreams, our hard earned prosperity. We've raised our heads and seen our neighbors join us in startled surprise as our representatives shuffle papers and allow unchallenged powers to dictate their actions. We dismay to find they no longer examine the initiatives around them nor even read the legislation they would pass upon us! Condensending words from them fall upon those with the courage to query them in town halls across the nation.
We have been drawn from our perception of an age of heroic gallantry and masterful strategy to find we've fallen...hard. That our decent has landed us in a realm of savage cruelty where our foe is nearly impossible to identify clearly and his reasoning even farther from our understanding. The fire within us is assaulted by philosophies termed global or more ominously new world order; terms which under less intolerable and hostile circumstances might have at one time been idealized and held with amity.
Peons of powers outside of our chosen structure have come to commonly insult our intelligence and debase our potential. They speak of us with spite and malice when they think we will not notice. A horrific number of our most trusted speak of depopulation themes as a more humane individual would speak of his favorite coffees or the innovations he favors in his business.
Patrick Henry would cringe to hear Thomas Ferguson representing the State Department Office of Population Affairs say, "There is a single theme behind all our work–we must reduce population levels. Either governments do it our way, through nice clean methods, or they will get the kinds of mess that we have in El Salvador, or in Iran or in Beirut. Population is a political problem. Once population is out of control, it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it…. Our program in El Salvador didn’t work. The infrastructure was not there to support it. There were just too goddamned many people…. To really reduce population, quickly, you have to pull all the males into the fighting and you have to kill significant numbers of fertile age females…. The quickest way to reduce population is through famine, like in Africa, or through disease like the Black Death…."
Then one can imagine how quick Thomas Jefferson would have been to retrieve his rifle from storage upon hearing Dr. Henry Kissinger reply, "Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government."
Today it follows that we note the theft of trillions to an unknowable destination and that the occurance still sits among our leaders with unconcern, our iconic industries begin to be confiscated and restructured, and too we hear the government preparing to decree mandatory vaccination of the population of America. Tension contorts our sympathies as we are told our children may be removed from their schools without parental consent and be forcibly vaccinated with a vaccine that has not even finished human safety trials perhaps as early as mid-September, or quarantined should they show any small sign of illness. The vaccine they push upon us is one which is said to contain a "Million TIMES More Squalene In H1N1 Vax Than Caused GWI !!" per an article by Gary Jacobucci dated August 25, 2009 and another titled "What's the Danger of Swine Flu Vaccinations?" by Dr. Anders Bruun Laursen who found quote "Several studies done on human test subjects found MF-59 to be a very safe immune adjuvant. But when I checked to see who did these studies, I found-to no surprise-that they were done by the Novartis Pharmaceutical Company and Chiron Pharmaceutical Company, which have merged. They were all published in "prestigious" medical journals. Also, to no surprise, a great number of studies done by independent laboratories and research institutions all found a strong link between MF-59 and autoimmune diseases. " As you can see, there are ethical problems involved in the production, handling, and marketing of this vaccine which are incredibly blatent.
The entrenched culture of imperial population control and reduction returns to mind in a most frightening way. It causes us to look with a unfamiliar intensity upon our surroundings. Here other details come into focus raising further our disfranchisement with the situation. Our survellience state and loss of freedoms in exchange for security is suddenly distastefully apparent in ways no longer comfortable so much so that shades of German history float before us with unnerving clarity. No real need for security empowers force without authority and authority is only to be found detailed and deliberate and spoken from the people. We've given no such authority for security of this extent. Nor would we for the freedom granted by our ancestors was hard won and laboriously kept. It is not an easy item to replace once gone. When has restriction and regulation ever truly retracted? When has the greater capacities of natural rights been restored after their infringement?
We have observed and listened to all this encroachment upon our lives and our response resonates among all in that we have crossed our arms and pinched our lips together in a thin grim line just as our grandfathers who returned from WWII were apt to do upon hearing the most ill justified writ of threat before the war and binding within their minds the notion to repair it if the opportunity must be manufactured rather than awaited. I myself have carefully listened to my fellows and heard the burden of their anger. My observation finds there is a resolution being contemplated behind their eyes.
