“In this respect England exhibits the most remarkable phaenomenon in the universe in the contrast between the profligacy of its government and the probity of its citizens. And accordingly it is now exhibiting an example of the truth of the maxim that virtue & interest are inseparable.
It ends, as might have been expected, in the ruin of its people, but this ruin will fall heaviest, as it ought to fall, on that hereditary aristocracy which has for generations been preparing the catastrophe.
I hope we shall take warning from the example and crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.”
Thomas Jefferson, November 12, 1816
Remember the public, the mass of people, are not the enemy.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
– 1769 Oxford King James Bible Ephesians 6:12 “Authorized Version”
“THERE ARE A THOUSAND HACKING AT THE BRANCHES OF EVIL TO ONE WHO IS STRIKING AT THE ROOT.” ~Henry David Thoreau
The false LEFT/RIGHT PARADIGM w/ David Cobb
Bickering with and attacking your neighbors, or the police & military is not the solution.
We the people have been fighting each other and warring far too long while obeying the institutions, their rules, codes, policies, rituals, their officers and priests that are responsible for mass murders, abuses, systems of control and other atrocities.
The mantras of “just following orders” or “doing my job” or “this is how it has always been” are poor excuses for blind obedience to corrupt and criminal authority.
The first part of this [https://ronmamita.wordpress.com/2012/05/17/an-awakening-awareness-part-1/] post dealt with slavery as it is manifested today within a paradigm of debt and paper instruments (currency, bonds, stocks, commercial paper, and legal papers) that have people in bondage paying and laboring to survive.
This human bondage must end.
The way forward is looking messy, with growing and birthing pains happening simultaneously with propaganda, cultural differences, beliefs, nostalgia in a conflicting stew…
The powers that be are putting their efforts into fomenting violence and chaos while preparing military interventions. They have the policies and tools to manage that environment.
Yet another reason, among many, to remain at peace and be creative.
I contemplate the possibility of the removal of the problem and what it would evolve into.
However that is heavily influenced by how the global control system is removed.
Does the financial system collapse, then the control freaks attempt to prey on that opportunity as they have done in the past [WWI, and WWII – were the deadly result with a wealthier few in control of much more, and stronger institutional centralization exerting greater control over everything as deadly weapons became a permanent industry]?
Or does secret advanced technologies enter the wars and change the institutional policies with their superior show of force? (Some investigators report there are secret organizations and/or aliens with advanced tech…)
Or does global natural (or man-made) catastrophes destroy the control centers and underground bunkers leaving no institutions intact?
It is sobering to realize some people (a significant percentage) want the current system to work. A hierarchical system of central control institutions for profit that somehow will protect us, remain fair and benign; the false image of the roaring golden past era comes to mind. A monopolistic system with the people’s trust again…
Explore, however, the possibilities that a significant percentage of the global population may succeed with a peaceful and leaderless non-compliance campaign? [Where the people embrace their freedom to express their creativity and adopt an alternative system with alternative food, alternative energy, alternative agreements, alternative internet, alternative trade, services and market.]
Rather than petition and protest to the current institutions, a significant population simply withdraw their collective support, thus collapsing the pyramid from the base. The mass of people are currently supporting this meme, however by withdrawing that support the current system collapses allowing the emergence of the next global age.
The french movie “La Belle Verte” (The Green Beautiful) is an excellent example of peaceful non-compliance:
Do you want a self-governing, individual responsibility and maturity meme that nurtures personal liberty and personal responsibility where institutions are not governing people and all institutions are limited and restricted for the priority needs of the Earth and all life? A system of communities that hold people responsible and in complete control of their personal lives.
Where the officers of institutions would no longer find immunity for their actions and decisions behind the institutional cloak and seal.
Do you think this is impossible?
We observe this system in nature where the community of diversity and abundance thrive in a self-organizing environment that resonates with nature.
I remind us to not get caught up in arguing for who is right and who is wrong, but rather we focus on inner awareness and peace to express our creativity, survival, and to heal the Earth and each other. Removing conflicts, pollution, contaminants, poverty and sharing freely. It is ok to have different perspectives and we do not have to fight or hate each other because of a mere difference.
Be creative, be at peace within yourself and share your peace.
WE ARE THE CHANGE
