”There are two types of people in this world, those who think the government are there for their interests, and those who think…..”
This isn’t quite accurate of course. For there are obviously, many decent soldiers, police officers, doctors, and governmental employees at various levels and in a multitude of sectors (even if many of them aren’t quite seeing the full picture.) More difficult to argue against, is that it appears their hands, just like ours, are unfortunately, thoroughly tied. Or are they?….
Protestation displays a unique and powerful form of solidarity, of unity and very often, of love. Protests however, ultimately seek one objective that rises in importance above all others, that objective is change. Either fighting for, or fighting against it in some way. Unfortunately though, it often is all we can do, (such as in North Dakota) at least until we mobilize and unite together taking some power back in a manner that directly affects those perpetrating this terrorism and these blatant crimes against humanity. Please make no mistake either, for this is exactly what they are.
Regarding the key issues we face in 2016, it seems we’ve let the control system consolidate too much power for the art of protest to hold much more merit than that of a chocolate teapot. :/
I love protests, please let that be know. But the majority of protests that I’ve attended usually end up with a leader/leaders monotonously chanting some ”2, 4, 6, 8,” rhyme, which nearly always ends up in that one guy, (usually with the biggest lungs) displaying the ‘c’mon, you can do better that’, face! :/ If you’ve ever attended rallies, demonstrations, or protests you’ll know there’s an amazing sense of connection and the genuine, self-sacrificing nature of these gatherings is undeniable. You’ll also relate to how physically tired you feel afterwards as the expenditure of energy is monumental, and the emotional outpouring often no different. For such a passionate and honest energetic-exchange, you’d think that in a sane society, immediate and positive progressions would serve as the norm, wouldn’t you?
In 2016 however, when we have to fight against our ‘leaders’ to demand, or even beg, that they stop increasing an already terrifying military budget, to cease bombing innocents, to protect our shared environment and to put the general betterment of man ahead of corporate profiteering; something tells me it’s gone too far for protestation to do much of anything. This notion has been ominously reinforced over and over in recent years.
What we are witnessing in these instances is a disparity in consciousness so vast that it makes holding a homemade placard feel like a lot like wishful thinking. Truly, the act of protestation pertaining to many key areas, seems ‘too little, too late’, for me at least. It feels like we’re being strung along as gullible children, our options limited to peaceful protest in a particular place at a particular time, then back to servitude. Meanwhile their power of oligarchy sees them unleashing trained dogs upon us, spray our faces with highly irritable chemicals and kick and punch our women and children with zero consequence. Many farmers and natives have committed suicide based upon what sounds suspiciously like Seligman’s ‘learned helplessness’ theory. Does a peaceful protest really seem adequate to you?! Am I missing something?….
The powers ‘that shouldn’t be’ won’t disappear overnight, nor in fact at all. What we must collectively realize and as soon as possible, is that our political arena is not broken. Unfortunately, it is working perfectly. The creation of a political platform that represents the interest of a tiny few at the expense of the many and indeed the planet, is not debatable, nor a new revelation for many. It mirrors the ideology of their centralized banking system. A system we were once unwittingly coerced into and are now forced to live under, regardless of how damaging this has proven to be for all livings things and the planet, irrespective of morality, criminality and how utterly unsustainable we all now know it to be…..
At some point we must collectively declare that enough is enough and a tangible refusal to feed this abhorrence must see fruition. But won’t there be anarchy if we down tools, if we disobey, if we refuse to let them continue to steal our money through the current taxation system? Well, the short answer in my opinion is…..hopefully! Bare with me…..
The term ‘Anarchy’, much like the term ‘conspiracy theory’, has witnessed prolonged and deliberate disinformation and false representation in order that we fear such prospects. Simply more lies. They literally never stop. Perpetuating a system that tolerates the invasion and oppression of entire nations whilst stealing natural resources for their own profit whilst using only our money to do so is not compatible with a conscious and tolerant society. We all wish it weren’t so, but unfortunately, it really is this simple. Anarchy, as far as I’m concerned, on some level is now essential.
For anarchy, in truth, simply means ”without rulers”- Truly, a beautiful concept that champions the individual and decries a monarchy or ruling establishment. How refreshing, how empowering, how exciting! How ridiculous, some may say. I often hear the same questions when I bring this up; ”but, who’d look after the roads?”, ”Who would stop the terrorists?” ,”we NEED to be governed!”, ”You can’t trust the people though…”
As a collective of societies, like it or not, we’ve all been under sustained manipulation. Our minds have been bombarded with a truly staggering level of deceit and propaganda. Carried out in order that we become easily coercible, controllable and ultimately fearful, culminating in an obvious (and clearly cancerous) centralization of power. This is done gradually and incrementally through the removal of personal rights and freedoms, and all based upon more lies and fake terrorism. They’ve attempted to sculpt our minds and behaviors into only serving the self, which in turn serves their system, whist simultaneously we look to their leaders for guidance and to the heavens for salvation, or even worse, for redemption! 🙁 Truly giving all of our power away. Thankfully though, for most of us, it just didn’t work as they’d planned! 😀 This is particularly true for the indigenous peoples, like the native Americans we witness at Standing Rock, so vehemently defending their land with passion and concern. This is a very special time to be alive though as we reconnect with our highest selves in this technological age of truth. Truly we are learning to once again reconnect with spirit. The visionary art from precocious talents such as Alex Grey, Tokio Aoyama, Andy Thomas and Amanda Sage provide many beautiful representations of exactly that…
Anarchy is merely the triumphant concept that people should live unobstructed by laws and rulers, yet this liberating and ultimately empowering concept still frightens a lot of Americans and indeed, Europeans alike. This desire to be ruled over is disturbingly displayed when we see the fanaticism with which so many follow the British monarchy or the current American President, patriotically waving their ‘made-in-Taiwan’, polyester flags regardless of his/her tenure and its outcomes. On a brief side note; the Queen of England’s family were actually Germans of Nazi descent changing their name from ‘Coburg-Saxe-Gothe’ to ‘Windsor’, in an attempt to sound English! She legitimately owns around one sixth of the Earths land, just think about that, guys. Please, make no mistake, this woman (who hasn’t technically worked a single day in her embellished life) could choose to could end world hunger over night, and I don’t merely infer to feeding the impoverished. I refer to the development of an infrastructure and a strong localized economy for 3rd world nations to survive, thrive and succeed for generations to come – but that’s one for another day!
I’m not trying to become Mr energy vampire here either, I’m merely trying to illustrate the depth of the injustices in a manner that display how futile (when contained within the bigger picture) modern protestation has become.
When the sharks (aka law makers) create and implement new laws solely to protect multinational corporations, that undeniably work against humanity and the planets best interest, then, ”we’re gonna need a bigger boat” – I mean plan!
Unfortunately, I’m not intelligent enough that I can provide a utopian manifesto for cooperation, prosperity and peace, as much as I’d like. But, what I do feel, is that these changes have got to come from us, and for us to collectively evolve, to truly evolve, we simply cannot tolerate a system that creates money out of thin air, demanding interest in such a way that the debt can never be paid off. Our power (aka our freedoms, opportunities and aspirations) and those of our children and grandchildren can never become fully realized, redistributed or rebalanced underneath this system. Only through some tangible and disruptive means that affect those in charge directly could I envisage anything changing. Even then, I can only envisage breadcrumbs, but I can work with breadcrumbs, in fact, I bloody love bread crumbs! Breadcrumbs give people an appetite! Breadcrumbs can open minds!
Perhaps an agreed and widespread NON-tax compliance period would put a spanner-in-the-works of their current system? Don’t be fooled either, it is time to see it for what it truly is……A system of tyrannyical debt enslavement, that criminalizes sovereign choices that withholds healthcare cures, that outlaws much of nature purely as it cannot be patented for profit, of PROVEN false flag attacks, of technological suppression, and of lying to us repeatedly! When exposing your governments crimes becomes a crime, is it not time for a mutiny?……
The overwhelming majority of us still deeply vaue the concepts of equality, fairness and justice and we’re ultimately still filled with love for our fellow man! <3 Many however, have fallen for the traps and have allowed their reality to become manipulated, unaware that they have allowed others to form their opinions, losing their natural intuition along the way. Many in the middle still desperately cling to the hollow notion that the NEXT politician, the OTHER political party, or the NEW manifesto will be what finally brings revolutionary change. :/
There’s a reason that we don’t water dead flowers….
Could civil disobedience, or rather, mass non-compliance, provide a conduit or catalyst for this cultural change at grass roots levels? Community-based, micro-revolutions where we simply refuse to listen to what they have to say, where we refuse to let chain stores take our hard earnings, we grow our own, we trade, we share! Cooperation not competition! Perhaps we won’t even need to devise the solution, perhaps these self-appointed social engineers will sell us a new system once the old one collapses, one which we shall reject. Either way, a new paradigm of living, organically formed by the people, at local levels, hinging around equality, the betterment of all, and a daily celebration of life on Earth might be born precisely from the capitulation of our current abhorrent model. Adorning oneself in expensive clothes, amassing collections of material possessions has become a substitute for genuine prosperity. True prosperity is a vibrant environment and an abundance of health, happiness, love, and relationships. Do we really require an all-powerful state to orchestrate this? Would they ever choose to do such a thing? Are they even capable of such a creation? As more people come to accept this form of self-identification within our culture, we progress closer and closer towards that experience of true prosperity! 🙂 Look beyond the five sense world guys, where we have been trained to move in accordance with the clock and the calendar and we find that the spirit is eternal, and that the each individual soul is part of this eternity! As more and more people grasp this reality, as we reconnect with nature and its true value and as we enter into ‘the age of the whistle blower’ things can change drastically.
“Society is defined not only by what it creates, but by what it refuses to destroy”- John Sawhill
It appears more and more that the tribe system appears to suit these needs most favorably. Small communities, connected to larger ones yet with the same ethos of cooperation and sharing, whilst turning off our television sets en mass and getting those ‘primitive jungle folk,’ with their lack of crime, lack of stress, organic food, personal accountability, genuine fellowship and daily celebration of life, eh? lol
Protestations hold an obvious power of unification. They strengthen solidarity becoming powerful educational aids that draw attention to pertinent areas. However, as we’ve witnessed so many times, these areas have often been highlighted before, even protested before, sometimes even for years. Protesting, ultimately, doesn’t amount to much without a positive and tangible change being implemented at the business end, so to speak. With a view to changing the deep seeded inequality and injustices in todays United States of America, and in Great Britain, protestation is largely, if not entirely, futile. I truly feel inside my heart, that as more and more people shrug off their dissonance, get outside of their comfort zones and educate themselves on what is no longer debatable and crucially reconnect with nature, we will see this shift in collective consciousness create real change. If tens of millions of us did simultaneously and temporarily refuse to pay these forced taxes, for example, what would they do? What could they possibly do? Throw us all in jail? Into Fema camps? Fine us all ?That is simply Impossible. People might not be terribly well informed just yet, they might not understand history, but they aren’t stupid and there’s only so much bullying people will put up with before they’ve had enough. Never forget that we are the many, and they, the few!
Viva- La- Revolution! <3
