Grainger Smokestacks of Conway

DMG Smokestacks Sunflare

Sunday February 7, 2016

It’s Super Bowl Sunday, and also the day of the demolition of a historic landmark. I awoke this morning to a thunderous explosion followed by a significant earth tremor. I was soon informed it was the destruction of the smokestacks of the late Dolphus M. Grainger Power Station, just over one kilometer away. I was startled by the explosion but quickly recovered. A lingering emotion was regret that I missed witnessing the demolition. I would have made an effort to wake by 6:30 AM and been at Lake Busbee by 7, standing in the cold rain with an umbrella, if I had known about it. I regretted missing the irreplaceable experience of witnessing the razing of a fifty year old local historic landmark of a town which I’ve lived for fifteen years. I regretted this for about two hours until I rationalized the misfortune and learned something important.

I accepted that I was responsible for missing an event that greatly interested me. I had been so preoccupied with work and play that I missed a major unrecoverable planned event of deep interest, occurring just a kilometer from my residence. The crashing boom that startled me from sleep was a literal wake-up call to my senses. It forced me to realize that I want to be thoroughly informed to the local affairs of the city that affects me. I began to regret less missing the demolition. I started to appreciate the omission of the foreknowledge of the event because I had learned something paramount. I became inspired and motivated to read about the power plant and write what I had learned. More importantly, I was happy I learned of myself a characteristic that I might otherwise not have discovered for much longer. I decided to embrace and own the lost opportunity. If I had been told of the destruction, I would have made a short schedule adjustment and gone to watch. Most likely I would have taken that information for granted and not have realized my deficiency. It’s of course simple to say and accept “we’re responsible for what we learn”, but it’s far more impressive a lesson to miss a grand event that affects us.

I’m going to start reading local newspapers and follow local politics. I want to know about the developments that occur around me. I can’t expect to effect desired changes if I’m ignorant of my environment. I think it’s crucial to take responsibility over our individual education. I can’t presume this is a rare epiphany unrealized by most, but I feel it’s important to share that it took me 37 years to realize I’ve been failing myself by treading water without air in my lungs. Perhaps with my head above water I can get a clear picture of where I’m at, then I’ll start to swim toward beneficial goals.

The Center of the Soul

Several days ago I had a dream about the soul. At least, I think it was about the soul but it might have been allegorical to a thought I had while awake. I don’t need to make a ruling on the reasoning, because either way I learned something. I’m a distant person. I’m extremely involved in something most of the time. Even when I’m at play, it’s usually in a manner of my own design. Games can be very scripted and show a clear path and goal in mind. It’s easy to group and cooperate when the goals are the same. But I have very clear goals for myself as far as design and function. There is a quote that is relevant.

“Work like hell, tell everyone everything you know, close a deal with a handshake, and have fun.”

That’s a quote by Harold Eugene Edgerton, a famous electrical engineer. That motto sounds like a good maxim, but one part is extremely difficult for me. The “tell everyone everything you know” part isn’t probable. It’s also not wise when the general morality of a given society has been diminished.

There are plenty that attempt to tell everyone all they know, but it’s an exhaustive practice and often serves to devalue the reception of what they say. Speech becomes cluttered with redundancy and the practice can serve to alienate those that don’t tell everyone everything they know. This practice can very easily be misinterpreted as desperate attempts to bolster one’s ego by divulging all their knowledge, especially around those that already know the subject matter but refrain from telling everyone everything they know. Certainly it’s a valid argument that people care to share knowledge; sharing an informational resource is a valuable practice after all. But context and presentation shouldn’t be overlooked. There is also a level of self-awareness that should be observed when practicing the impossible. Practitioners should be mindful of individual operational preferences, so as to not be received as being critical of their method, or presumptuous of their ignorance. Clearly just because another doesn’t reciprocate in telling everything they know, doesn’t mean they don’t already know what you’re telling them. It can become quite insulting to relay common information effortlessly.

So where am I going with this and how does it relate to my dream?
As I stated before, I’m a distant person. I don’t greatly require human interaction, but when I prefer it, I go out. I used to believe that was how most people operated just because of the self-projection principle, but then I grew up and observed otherwise. The dream was the presentation of these thoughts in a concise package, presented as a colorful example.

The message of the dream was this: The soul is the collection of our knowledge and it craves strong affirmation.

This is also theorized as the same goal of a story-teller. People ultimately want to be taken seriously. Even a comedian requires an attentive audience for them to be effective. Their skill relies heavily on their knowledge and cleverness. They don’t want to be ignored, they want their comments and ideas to be affirmed; positively received. Ignorance (ignore-ance) is the opposite of sharing (or receiving) knowledge. So to not share and be affirmed, one would assume that individual may be ignorant. So the presumption of a quiet individual’s ignorance could be a valid reason for other’s to unload much redundant information on them. The soul would be the collection of one’s knowledge, and thus the defined character for that entity. People often believe they retain their information in the various forms of some afterlife, but again those are conscious thoughts of operational energies forming new connections and knowledge inside the fatty meat of the brain.

The specifics of the dream are for myself, their relevance to anyone else are limited and I will not share them. But the result of my findings are that in some cases, I appear to be stupid. It sounds funny to say that. But stupidity relies on context of subject, and what is considered common sense of a majority. So for me to not give strong affirmation, or otherwise show interest in what someone is telling me, it leaves an opening for it to be assumed I am ignorant on that subject matter. And when dealing with new data on a subject, it is likely to be true. Just as it is equally likely that I have a preference to spend my time working on my own projects than the interests of others. If my projects lead me into those subjects then I would show interest, but even if that occurs, it’s unlikely I will deviate from my current methods to entertain another’s take on any given subject.

Ignorance and knowledge management also has much to do with the passage of time. Many young people spend an enormous amount of time on activities that have little likelihood of being beneficial to their future usage of time. Bad habits are formed. One can spend a great deal of time learning everything everyone wants them to know. But without having discretion on the dissemination of your knowledge, then a great deal of time is wasted trying to spread knowledge to busy people doing their own thing; they are hardly a receptive audience. But how much effort are you willing to spare?

Now this leads me to the practice of procreation. What is life if it isn’t the spread of information? Procreation and building a civilization is based on the spread of information. But without exercising discretion, we’re likely to end up with undesirable results. The genetic information that’s passed from parents to child are literally a physical manifestation of the result of combined information. The offspring can be undesirable if the creators don’t exercise control over their information; diet, nutrition, wisdom, exercise. But who determines what information is proper for each other to share and reproduce? That should be common sense; which brings us back to the “stupid” argument. Eugenics is a form of procreative control. It deals heavily in the management of genetic information, but it’s still just a design based on the ideal’s of a small group of people trying to control the outcome of other people as per their desired result. It’s common sense to want to have the best possible outcome for your children, so why would anyone listen to the discretionary principles of others that are far removed from your conditions? People must decide for themselves what is right for them. Information can be shared, but have no expectations of strong affirmation for your principles because ultimately, everyone should value their own voluntary efforts over the designs of others.

Let’s get back to the soul. So here is this alleged collection of a living essence. What else could it be if the collection of energy and information wasn’t central to its existence? So if there’s an afterlife.. Take comfort in knowing all your knowledge will be shared with the other energies thereafter. And if there is no soul, then why would you spend so much time attempting to tell disinterested people everything you know when your time is better spent working toward your immediate or long-term goals?

Every so often I’ll elect to tell others something I know, but I have no expectation of how it will be received. I prefer to use discretion most of the time because it feels rude to dump subjects on others without receiving interest from them. However if people have made it a habit to unload on you, it’s customary to dish it back from time to time. But by no means should you project insincere interest, that serves nobody. It wasn’t always my way to manage information in this manner; but experiences have developed a tiny bit of wisdom on the matter.

On the Destruction of Sensibility

Consumers Zombie Wake Up Call
Sourced art by Radoslav Nedelchev

The heavens cast cosmic bands of energy over the doings of humankind. On occasion it’s necessary to admit we’re powerless to the greater reactions of natural law, but one should never wholly submit to its inferred will. Swimming against the current is arduous and often asserted to be a foolish endeavor, but it would depend on what you’re swimming from. Perhaps that branch of the stream leads one off a cliffs edge to their doom. Sometimes metaphors and similes are baseless hyperbole. They’re chosen as clever phrases intended to impress and support an argument, but with the addition of further detail, one can easily circumvent the intended meaning of a given metaphor.

In reality, the previously mentioned metaphor about swimming with the current is intended to condition you to follow orders, rather than using your intellect to make decisions or waves. Police, for example, are required to adhere to protocol and military-like rules of engagement (RoE) that are haphazardly designed to escalate more scenarios toward violence. Better judgment would be to treat all people as individuals, rather than grouping the entire public into racially profiled boxes of preset interaction methodologies. But with the ever-decreasing IQ’s of individuals comprising the various departments with enforcement capabilities; they are less capable of making rational decisions, and it becomes easier for them to rely on preset reactions.

An example of my argument would be to pay attention to the increasing number of homicides perpetrated by police. Officers believe to be “following protocol” even as they fire sixteen bullets into people walking away from them, or open fire on a misidentified vehicle because they suspect the perpetrator is inside. Enforcement divisions are becoming conditioned and transformed into reckless gangs of brutish thugs, complete will “kill order” initiations from their department heads.

You’d like to think I’m being harsh, but I’ve seen a man choked to death for merely selling cigarettes and ignoring an officer. The officers know they’re being filmed and they persist to commit murder. And then they produce the excuses “I was following protocol” or “that’s what I was trained to do”, and they back it up with “I feared for my safety”, if they’re feeling exceptionally at fault. And they perform all of this without any remorse or emotion; purely apathetic.

Well.. If I strapped on a gun and wore a useless little metal shield and entered a hostile motorized gun club gang that sought danger all day, I might fear for my safety too. But what I wouldn’t do is amplify my aggressive behavior to a point where it causes excessive danger, limiting my options to the ultimate conclusion of killing the collar. That doesn’t help anyone. I’m not even that physically built but I can disarm an assailant of their knife without murdering them. I’m also not bad at reading a scenario and using communication to diffuse it.

The departments seemingly have these uniformed aggressors brainwashed into thinking they’re Jack Bower of 24, hot on the trail of deadly terrorists, and everyone is suspect. They’re locked into “fight or flight” mode where they make decisive actions to shoot first; then taser, torture and handcuff. This is, of course, all the media allows the public to see. There are still plenty of decent public servants, but their actions seldom make headlines and sell tickets to the main event.

But much like a work of fiction or fantasy, there really are individuals that operate in collusion and secrecy, that seek to control all facets of human existence. I believe their goal is to create a critical mass of dissidents to spur support for further federalizing and militarizing the police, then their goal of removing constitutional public protections will have an obedient enforcement structure in place to better quell a revolt against collective tyranny. This is what I believe because it’s clearly stated in the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, as is a page right out of the Agenda 21 playbook. These private interests wish to replace all systems with a scientific dictatorship where all real control is in the hands of a few technocratic elites. Proof of the reality of these long-term plans and sociopathic ideology can be found in the writings of James Warburg of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR, circa 1950), as well as several modern members of that same group.

A great deal of research and original writing has already occurred and been compiled on the topic of global dominance so I’ll direct you to a source of information that matches my similar discoveries. I don’t want to tell anyone how to live their life, but it’s important for everyone to realize there are a great many number of sociopaths that don’t practice a Golden Rule philosophy. These folks will seek positions of control, and they will do much harm to any that simply wish to live and let live.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock watching reruns of Growing up Gotti, you should have recognized the United States of America is headed toward damnation. You don’t have to believe in religion to feel the hairs stand on the back of your neck, and sense the country is in distress on the brink of entering a world war. The constant state of war perpetrated by the occupation in the US has served to bankrupt the nation of our morality, credit and competitive edge. We haven’t been #1 for at least a decade.

In order to sell the public a slavery worse than the current establishment, they must degrade the quality of living to the lowest of the bar scale, so the public would be open to their asserted “improvement” toward their world-wide technocratic scientific dictatorship.

Getting back to the topic of sensibility, there is a large and increasing number of callous folk in America. Just today I witnessed new Black Friday shopper videos displaying very dangerous and cruel social interaction. I witnessed a woman grab a vegetable steamer out of the hands of a young boy right in front of his mother; mama bear wasn’t having that and went ballistic on the woman that wouldn’t return the item even after being attacked. The thief screams at the woman, “Why are you being so oppressive?” If I didn’t know better, I might have thought the incident was staged. But every single individual of notice in the American Black Friday videos were of extremely low character, incapable or unwilling to objectively view the situation with sensibility, apply critical thinking or realize what they’re doing. It was a fanatical feeding frenzy, except the dregs were competing over boxed garbage to spend money they should instead be putting toward valuable resources to survive the coming crisis. These behaviors have been occurring and coming to the forefront of the news for several years now. These individuals are literally mindless.

I see, hear and sense this is the result of full-spectrum dominant programming on a drugged population. People who are aware of the conditioning can take steps to avoid it, but those that have their head up their ass or in the sand, will continue riding the bumper cars of emotional reaction. I don’t wholly blame them. It’s fun to ignore the world and constantly entertain yourself in a loop of immediate gratification behavior. However it’s extremely irresponsible to remain ignorant of the truth and causes. It also doesn’t help that a high percentage of the Christian faith has a death wish, and programmed to ignore real cures for common modern-day ailments.

I’ve been researching blood electrification. I’ve determined that it works, and there are Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests that prove it. Just spending fifteen minutes on the internet looking up a cure for cancer will lead you into blood electrification. But if someone has a subconscious death wish, there’s an idea in their head that forces them to ignore even the most obvious of supporting evidence that the cure is valid. Patients with a death wish will constantly look for flaws of character in people supporting the cure, and of course they’ll find flaws if they look for any; so they then transfer that negativity to the validity of the evidence, then discredit the cure in their mind. This all happens quickly but I’ve witnessed the process first hand in patients. And it’s really unfortunate because a person has to have their mind on board and optimistic of any treatment in order to aid bolstering their immune system to fight the disease.

There is a design to this world and its social orders that encourages people to behave irresponsibly. People have been conditioned to be strictly reactionary. It starts with the parents, which have now also mostly received similar programming, then it continues with compartmentalization and institutionalized schooling, and even continues on into college. That’s a huge part of someone’s life, and to be programmed from the beginning for so long to be reactionary, and not critical of their environment, there’s little opportunity for someone to recover that’s been indoctrinated and conditioned for that long.

I was always a rebellious individual and asked hard questions that caused teachers to think I was being a disruptive smart-ass. That was never my intention, as I’m an introverted personality and don’t draw much attention to myself. It wasn’t until college that I learned a great deal of my teachers throughout my education were authoritarian reactionaries with little to no idea what they were doing at any given time. College also taught me critical thinking; and after that, I became unstoppable with logical argument and debate. I began breaking down social processes and interactions and pointing out character flaws. This turned me into a very moral person, which was unfortunate because I had developed a pretty good set of skills for the dark-side. I have since let the bulk of my dark-side skills to become antiquated.

Being aware of the death wish behavior opens the door to empowerment. A lot of people have problems with harmful addictions. I don’t because I’ve recognized my reactive patterns and social triggers. Sound is still an area of difficulty for me because specific frequencies, patterns and vocals invoke memories and emotional responses. But I can recognize when this happens and remove my emotions from causing undesired reactions and apply my intellect to the problem. Again this is something that happens very fast and doesn’t interrupt anything I’m doing. If you haven’t already identified the techniques, I’m using some tools of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) to remove my reactive conditioning. I was lucky to never develop a death wish from religious programming but the television proved to be an effective weapon against me. I used to be one of those poor souls that would be lost to a group of socializing people if a television was playing in the room. That damage was easy enough to reverse. I simply stopped paying the cable bill or watching T.V. Now I’m more creative, productive and happier.

In summation, my goal is to inform people; maybe trigger some to question why they do the things they do. Questioning oneself is the beginning of a fantastic process of recovery. I can be very blunt and harsh, but it’s in the best interests of education to not moderate speech. Political-correctness is a hardcore weapon against communication and social development. It is the cause of a great many number of notable conflicts throughout history. And right now that weapon has a solid hold on many young and impressionable people across the nation. I’ve witnessed behavior much like that of the Red Guards of Maoist China of the mid 1960’s. There is no such thing as exceptionalism. America is repeating very dangerous historical patterns. The sooner we all see it, the sooner we can implement a solution instead of continuing as insensible reactionaries to the causes. If you have no idea what I’m writing about, then you are my target audience. Please don’t continue down the path most travelled, because we’ve seen where that leads.

The Homegrown Albatross

The United States of America has become a corporatized self-interest entity. A country of collectivists, authoritarians and dictators. We are a nation of regulations upon regulations; where a free market hasn’t existed since the taxation of society and their operations. The issue has become tempered by time and we’ve been conditioned for it but taxation isn’t vital or even practical to progress. The reality is: taxation is an albatross upon the people. I will prove it through argument.

First understand that taxation is a socialist economic practice. The funds are collected from all people then distributed into a great many things that others use more than you. It’s a model for redistribution of wealth. That is a trendy term right now but the only time you can have corruption is when using intermediaries to decide how money or resources should be trafficked and used; hence you have collectivists and the creation of the state. Collectivists are individuals claiming that ‘the group’ has more right to power and process than any individual among them or anywhere. It’s their philosophy that people require to be managed. This is not to be confused with organization. A group may organize their efforts to have their will be done, that is fine and well; however it is the goal of collectivists to inflict that will upon those not party to their organization. This is a mild form of tyranny because they must use the guise of authority to force their will. And because of this alleged “service” to the public, they must be paid for their job. And all must pay regardless whether or not you’re directly affected by their actions. And they will force your compliance and use your money however they desire. Thus we have the corruption of these current days: closed-session deals, price-fixing, drugs/weapons/human trafficking, war profiteering, authoritarian intimidation, gag orders, murder, embezzlement, money laundering, loan sharking, bribery, obstruction of justice, and other forms of racketeering. These are common practices between government and organizations within its beltway of corruption. None of which would be possible without YOUR money.

And so.. collectivists fabricate positions of authority and management to direct actions, supposedly on behalf of the public; although you never see the white-collar working on the roadway. Any interested group of individuals could hire people to fix the roadway. A single man could follow directions on a bag of cement and repair a pothole. But the state has a monopoly on transportation and repair. Don’t ever let them catch you fixing something if you aren’t DOT certified, commissioned and micro-managed by acronymic regulatory boards of white-collared freeloaders.

Back to the issue at hand. Taxation and its effect on inflationary costs. Concerning the income tax.. if you generate more income, you pay more taxes. I’m not even discussing the percentages, I’m simply saying the outgoing unit value in taxation is higher if your income is higher. This is a constant and it’s important to understand the practice of compound taxation, which is where we are today. There are local, state and federal taxes; then there are common goods (sales), food, fuel, income, payroll, and property taxes. Some would say I have repeated tax burdens in the preceding list; I have not. They are each clearly separate with different tax percentages, therefore they are different taxes. For example, a fuel tax could be argued as a sales tax but it is a different rate and therefore separate. In some areas it has become illegal to barter goods or services because it’s arguably a manner to evade taxation; which they will of course tell you is criminal. I assure you bartering is not immoral but according to the collectivists’ code books, it may be classified as a fineable offense and subject to recompense.

It doesn’t take a degree in economics to understand that taxation is a burden on society that arrests community development and social progress. It could take months to get a bump in the road fixed by a collectivist statist model bickering over how to spend your money; whereas a small group of able-bodied individuals that drive that road daily could buy the needed repair products and make an afternoon of it. Then you might say, no one has time to do anything like that between their jobs. Nonsense, because without the burden of taxation, there is no loss of time from needless record-keeping for taxes you don’t have to struggle and waste time to pay. You work your job and get paid then at your leisure you put that money back into your community immediately where it needs it, without overregulated bureaucracy and burdens of paying third parties huge chunks of your money. The free market economy will flourish and collectivist corruption models will disappear because interrelation among trading parties is self-regulated by reputation and common law practice.

Oh but that’s such a scary idea because what about insurance, pensions, social security and retirement?

Insurance is nearly a complete Charles Ponzi-style racket, and in many instances its mandatory and serves to hike up the price of the services it’s issued for. Pensions are derived from your employer withholding money from you, in the hopes you will die before they can pay you the total sum. Ultimately they could file bankruptcy and you’d be fucked. Social security is a mandatory socialist money redistribution model that’s highly mismanaged into fraudulent activity; not to mention that the SS number is a continually exploited security risk concerning identity and property. Social Security is allegedly insured and backed by government, but everyone else is paying for it, whether they bought into it or not. Retirement is the action of not working anymore but you’re going to still require money for food and care once you stop working; no doubt necessitating these taxed money schemes. But people forget that if you didn’t have the tax burden or let middle-men mismanage your money, you would have more than enough saved for your retirement and healthcare. Not to mention you would have enough money to be eating healthier throughout your work years, thus negating most of your late-life care costs.

Insurance is an assurance to pay, institutions like hospitals and lawyers know this so they raise the cost of the procedures of operation because there is a definite source of payment. Of course the regulatory boards allow this immoral and fraudulent behavior because all money is taxable income. Consider the fact that even outlawed activities like soliciting prostitution is legal if it’s renamed and taxable. Whores are no longer arrested if they solicit for an escort agency, but they’re still prostitutes. That may not be a palatable pill to swallow but it’s the truth. I personally don’t have criminal concerns about drugs or prostitution; let adults do what they like with their bodies. So really institutions like government, cares not for common moral law or even the well-being of its people; but they’ll deceive and manipulate to chase your dollar all the way into the pit if it serves their collective.

This is not the result of society or the practice of capitalism. Remember that capitalism is merely the belief that one can own something; property. Even the billionaires of the planet would have nothing without capitalism. They certainly control more land than most but it’s arguable if even the rich own their lands. That is, of course, if you understand the true meaning of ownership. Even the US land deeds claim the holders as tenants. The land is quite possibly owned by the Crown from old English banking cartels much like those which operated under the name of The Virginia Company many centuries ago. With the help of clever wording from the British Accredited Registry (BAR), the Crown has managed to fool everyone into residing on their land as long as they pay their rent (tax). It is often said that “possession is 9/10 of ownership”. Perhaps that is because the remaining 10% is the tax imposed by the true owner.

In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.
– Benjamin Franklin

This is a troubling quote for many but old Benjamin obviously had a sense of humor. Of course taxes are not certain because you can certainly go without paying taxes. Those that don’t understand logic will argue this as a truth from there and back, but they don’t consider that Benjamin was pointing out the problem of the practice of taxation. Certainly there is no record of one escaping death, but taxation..? Because people have taken this so seriously, the practice of taxation has become the driving force of new slavery; enforced by militarized groups of mercenaries working for the greed and corruption of third parties. That threat is beyond anything we’ve ever seen before; far surpassing the threat of force at the muzzles of the British in pre-revolutionary war.

Today a war like that could never take place because people are not empowered by true independence. The mental conditioning and dependency on the state has overwhelmed too many. People are scattered and disorganized in their politics and will not take a stand against even what they know in their heart is wrong because it isn’t normal behavior to be free of collectivist burdens. Most people are impressionable, ignorant, weak and slow. They have little willpower outside their accustomed programmatic slave labor, and they’re ruined by behavioral faults. There is very little honor among the public of city life because they’re pioneers of the system that enslaves them. They are ultimately robots programmed to be a part of a system they grow to hate. There’s very few human infrastructure in your vision of paradise for a reason. People ultimately know that cities are where the slaves toil and work for each other. The food is overly-processed garbage, the medical industry dispenses liver-destroying toxic waste and the taxes are two-fold. It’s great for spending money with friends as a vacation from what is normal; as long as your ‘normal’ is a peaceful quiet plot of land in a temperate climate away from others, where you can focus on living in harmony with the environment with little to no money.

No. Taxes are not certain. Our forefathers fought tooth and nail to be free from the fees of middle-men and succeeded, albeit for a short period of time. Freedom from the burden of taxation can be accomplished, though many unsavory elements of collectivist societies would no doubt perish in the process of restoring that freedom. Taxation is a long running scam whereby the entire modern infrastructure of government relies on its continued enforcement. I believe I’ve truly become an anarchist, but I at least realize that anarchy is a phase of transition to another form of organization. Organization is autonomous because people form a society for obvious benefits of interaction and ability. People can have community, organization and a functional society without the burden of government middle-men. The proof is obvious. Our species has existed to the point where we created collectivist taxation models, certainly not operating on them previously. Trade can occur without regulation. In fact, the beauty of the blossoming free market relies on the principle of no regulation.

Ideally.. People are to trade goods and services voluntarily with whomever they wish; without middle-men, regulatory boards and mandatory inclusion to programs. That’s where independence lies. I’m not of any illusions that reverting to a free society could be accomplished without physical conflict. We must take the freedom back by force, because there is no reasoning with a collectivist. They will always have you under their thumb included in some form or another. And with inclusion comes the costs and burdens of the many. The flaw of the collectivist mindset is their unreasonable archaic philosophy that all must make sacrifices for everyone. It is also their weakness, as major proponents of collectivist practices often exemplify the double-standard of their argument. They are horrible people. The political arena of liars displays these behavioral flaws callously; regularly caught lying, being hypocritical and practicing double-standards. Evil cannot escape its true nature and the moral can spot the demon easily.

Greed is a fascinating flaw. It has caused the most developmental harm to society. It’s as if the mother of America has taken thalidomide with a side order of depleted uranium. The damage is done and all we can do is hope some of us can still create a pure future. Every day I discover it’s the most horrible of days as I read new stories of the unreasonably insane dictating new law and practice. I will not allow this to continue. It may take lustrums or decades but I will find a way to extinguish the practices of collectivism and restore the freedom of voluntary participation at least for myself, if not for all that I care. It may simply be a matter of informing the right people of my experience and analysis of these systems of control and domination, or it could take much more. I feel it’s the duty of moral people to maintain an orderly society; one without the packaged corruptions of mandatory involvement or monopolies. I don’t think they’ve given us much choice and ultimately it will be at the advent of their destruction that we will begin to relearn responsibility and have peace.

Modern Liberalism

Modern Liberalism

The term “liberal” has been redefined from repeated ignorant misuse. But as far as it’s used today, liberalism is a counter-culture movement of morally bankrupt individuals poisoned and conditioned by the state to depend on the state; used as a vehicle for change more than for progress. Liberals are self-centered uninformed, or otherwise stubborn, types of dependents that don’t want others exercising freedoms they themselves are frightened to exercise. They are truly micro-managing authoritarian cowards favoring a communist state control model even when they do not self-identify as such. For example: They don’t have or like guns so they require illegal legislation to keep others from having them. You know.. For the Greater good.

Liberalism is like a popularity pageant where no one outside their clique cares for the contest, and the winners are the most deviant sycophants. They are quite an illogical and irrational bunch that believe individuality is the core problem in societal relations. They don’t give much credence to “conspiracy theories” or any other type of analytical thinking that would require a triple digit intelligence quotient. Liberals have poor reasoning skills and may become irate when their arguments are opposed with logic. They fall all over each other about being pacifists, as if that were a characteristic to be proud of; meanwhile they are the first to lie, steal, cheat, rape and attack others because they are control freaks at heart that value deception and manipulation above consent and personal choice.

So, you’ve asked what I call the misnomer of modern liberalism.

And its proponents are Sociopaths.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

No Thing Good

Illuminate Darkness

There’s an annoying pain in my foot. It’s a reminder of past accidents and current regrets. I don’t currently have anything good I want to say. I’m not feeling well right now. There is so much to respond to but I have nothing constructive to add. Things are falling apart. I’m ten days from leaving the state. I’m not looking forward to the drive but I’m excited about the destination. But now my attitude and hope has changed. It took years to be rid of the pain before. It’s back with a vengeance. I knew better than to get comfortable in my environment. I must always be guarded. Everything is designed against you. On a long enough timeline, people are defeated by their environment.

I hate the dark. It’s a classically simple deception. One would not expect danger to be at every corner, but that is the nature of darkness. It is the illumination of those spaces that delivers us from our troubles. It’s too late for me. I can’t trust that things are where they should be in the dark. No one should. It’s quite an unfortunate reality.

I sometimes wonder what it’s like to starve to death. I don’t know why I’ve been thinking about it. I hate food and eating, so I bet that has something to do with it. I’ve never gotten used to eating. Some things taste good but it’s still a burden, as are all things associated with eating. Like the dark, I don’t trust food. A vegetable can look beautiful in the light but as soon as it’s eaten it’s in darkness and begins doing unspeakable things to your body. It’s a really foreign concept. Everything people do is to ensure a food supply. The need for decent shelter can come and go with nomadic migration but food is what keeps the slaves from venturing too far from their trusted sources. People used to take a special interest in food, growing or acquiring it from local sources, but now people eat foreign objects from bags or cans shipped from far off lands. Food is a different kind of darkness and shouldn’t be trusted.
