Over the recent months I’ve done a lot of research and writing for my next book. My focus is on morality. In my studies I have found many disturbing articles, reports and videos of misconduct from the executive branch right on down to select local police departments and individuals. Something all these people seem to share is a lack of respect for others. They are rude.
The best criminals I’ve ever seen are wearing suits or uniforms. They are the best criminals because they commit heinous crimes against their fellow countrymen but are seldom met with punishment for these crimes. These suits and uniforms are exempt from the laws they are tasked with governing and enforcing. This creates a rift in society. There is a hard division forming between the public and the professed government. When approaching a citizen on the street, or in a restaurant, or at their work, or in the general public; they can be engaged and spoken to without social discomfort. The same cannot be said when dealing with the suits and many uniforms of government. Certainly they have a code of conduct to follow, but how does that exclude the common courtesies they would extend to their mother or father? I can’t see a cop ripping their mother from a vehicle if she began asking questions about why she was stopped. And I can’t see two officers tasering their father when he pulls his arm away because they began grabbing at him when he exited the passenger door upon their request.
All persons are to be treated with respect until they give you a reason otherwise. I am noticing with more frequency police initiating assault. It is important to understand what assault means. Assault is a physical attack ‘or the threat of a physical attack’. Depending on circumstances, forms of assault can also be “battery”, or “aggravated assault” when weapons are used at varying degrees during an attack. And depending on the severity of the attack this could also lead into a whole slew of new charges about attempted murder and manslaughter; all of which law enforcement is seemingly immune to being charged with. What good are laws if only selected parties must abide?
Something has happened to the brains of these authoritarian individuals. It takes a particular type of person to assault strangers, and call it their job. I’m not talking about the armed forces like the Army or the Corps; with them, the recipients of their assaults have the courtesy of knowing they’re at war. No. I’m talking about police electrocuting and paralyzing random people inside the USA because they challenged the officers reasoning with a question and can’t understand the other cop that yells with a lisp in a southern accent. I have seen and read hundreds of these incidents, and about 20-30 new reports can be seen each week by cycling through the public reporting sites exposing this misconduct. And nothing is being done to lessen the spread of this behavior. We are instead giving these uniformed hooligans more powerful armored vehicles like MRAP’s. Meanwhile, by dictatorial decree, the executive branch of government is banning body armor, firearms and ammunition for the public; yet organizations of government and militarized police are exempt from such regulations.
We need to begin focusing on the violent nature of our police officers and why they’re misdirecting their hostilities toward the benevolent citizenry. I believe this behavior was exacerbated (if not started) by the “War on Drugs”, more of a war on the people, which has always been about removing our freedom of choice. Coincidentally, wars are great at growing an empire and extending the reach of an organization.
There has always been bad cops. Some places have a monopoly on “justice”, and they do things as they see fit. Small towns with a limited number of people able to make change to the system has a lot of bad to go wrong, especially when people stop caring for the community. But now the corruption from greed, hate and fear has spread to upper management of the major departments in big cities too. This is epidemic and no one is safe. It used to be media would report on these matters and there would be investigations and it would be a big deal. Now there is so much misconduct that society has become acclimated to hearing about such matters and there is no shock value, or they fantastically rationalize that somehow the victims deserved the mistreatment. Either way, it is less profitable for broadcasting as news.
A slight digression: For the first decade of my life, I grew up in a town that was rampant with narcotic use. I didn’t know then to what extent but found out later after moving away. I always knew to stay away from select neighborhoods because of their conditions. It was an old thread mill town with a bad heroin epidemic. You could find needles along the path between buildings in the downtown areas. I knew about drugs like heroin and how bad it was; the point is this: Whether heroin is illegal or not is of no concern to me. I’m simply educated enough to know it’s a burden and a health tax. Heroin being illegal certainly didn’t remove it from the environment, not while operations were underway by government assets to ship and distribute it to Hometown, USA; that’s another argument. Obviously the goal of ‘The War’ is less about curbing behavior and more about growing an enforcement organization.
We are now faced with an occupying force in the executive branch that controls hundreds of billions of shadow assets, is backed by foreign banking interests, capable of buying every single person in the legislative branch by favor or overt coercion. We have private contractors operating under secretive quasi-military clearances throughout various American cities, the constitutional basis of law is openly voided by the NAU agreement, the country is divided into FEMA regions, in a quiet state of emergency, under martial law, with an illegal CIA shill dictator ruling under rhetoric of democracy, meanwhile churning out executive orders unrelated to public legislation. And we have managed to piss off every single country on the planet by either invading them or ignoring their sovereignty in another manner. The worst part of this is the establishment repeatedly lied successfully to most of its population, and convinced some they want tyranny.
Congratulations America! This is the wild west. Law is no more. There is only force. Surviving in the wake of the suspension of common law will be an achievement. From what I know of history my advice is as follows:
Educate yourself about water filtration, basic nutrition and natural remedies to common conditions. Have a small stockpile of healthy food, and learn some about gardening in this age of depleted and contaminated soil. Stay clear of seasonal vaccinations, they’re sold for profit and weaken your immune system. Arm yourself. Find at least one rifle system, not too exotic, and learn it. Go to ranges, learn how to proficiently operate your weapon. Repetition will build confidence. Find someone that reloads ammunition and set up an arrangement if you can’t buy the ammo you need. Make allegiances with many people (not involved in government) that you can trust. Study tradecraft, social triggers (persuasion and dual meanings), cryptography, and message handling; discuss and employ these techniques with your allegiances. Learn not to rely on digital technology, as it will always be used against the public before it’s used to their benefit. Stay out of the crosshairs of government and away from the justice system. Keep family close because sometimes that is all that can help you. If you can avoid it, don’t live in large cities. Plan an exit strategy from your residence and out of town in case of an emergency. Find a supplemental source of cash income that you can avoid declaring to be taxed. Barter as much as possible, favors for favors and product for product. Follow the golden rule of conduct; free yourself from the anxiety of following every written law, rule and ordinance. Ignore their tyranny as your safety persists.
It will likely take several years to organize, especially when it concerns building trust relationships, but I believe there is another decade of despotic incrementalism before a critical mass of support is reached for a successful revolt toward restoring balance. I hope some can find this editorial helpful. I do care about all of us. I want as many people as possible to understand the dangers we face as a nation. Things are bad, and I believe they’re going to get worse, but we will see our way through this when we educate ourselves and unite in purpose.
