Day Science Died
western style, democratic nation-state and financial system is in
a state of collapse. The collapse began in 2000 and accelerated
dramatically after the first round of money printing wore off in
there have been uprisings worldwide. Even Americans have begun to
awaken from their slumber with the "Occupy Wall Street"
protests – although it is mostly a communist uprising at this
point. According to Diane Sawyer, anchor of ABC World News, the
Occupy Wall Street protests have now spread to "more than a
thousand countries". Sure, that is about 800 more countries
than exist on this planet but, hey, close enough for a newsreader.
there is definitely a movement for change going on in the world…
and this has a number of governments scared. Most western governments
are essentially bankrupt and attempting to cling to power a little
longer by once again printing money.
are like an organism. And, like a dying animal, governments around
the world are thrashing about in their death throes finding any
possible way to keep their enslavement game going a little while
One of the
predominant ways governments have begun to do so are to label anyone
who is against their taxes, laws, welfare or wars as terrorists.
The word "terrorism" has been sensationalized to the point
where even saying the word scares people. So, all governments need
to do to try to quell the masses is to make as many of us into terrorists
Some may think
that the "War on Terrorism" is a US phenomenon… but
it’s not. It’s been taken up by most western countries as a way
to oppress the people. Recently, we met an investment advisor from
Canada, named Ian, who told us of just how the Canadian Government
is beginning to pursue its own "War on Terror".
Ian told us
how he received a letter from the Canadian Government a few weeks
ago and was told he had to fill out an online questionnaire. He
was told if he didn’t fill out the questionnaire that he would lose
his license to be an investment advisor. That caught his attention
for obvious reasons.
He took a screen
capture of one page of the questions:
come immediately to mind.
that there is no "None of the Above" answer for Question
1, it appears as though the Canadian Government considers all animal
rights activists and environmental extremists to be terrorists.
Sorry, David Suzuki. You are a terrorist now.
We could only
enjoy seeing environmental extremists as being labelled terrorists
for just a few moments, however, before we reached Question 3. "Which
of the following terrorist groups involves individuals who have
suddenly become distrustful of their own Government"?
At first glance
we thought this meant us and millions of others people who, for
obvious reasons, don’t trust their own government… but then we
noticed the word "suddenly". OK, we are safe then, our
distrust hasn’t happened suddenly. It has taken many years of seeing
government oppress, enslave and murder people for us to come to
we do still fall under this category as it states those people who
see their government "as the enemy" are also terrorists.
What else would
you call an organization who presumes the right to own you, takes
half your income, taxes you on thousands of other activities, extorts
you to get permission (licenses) in order to work and who kidnaps
(arrests) and puts people in cages (jails) for simple acts such
as having certain vegetation in their pocket and who considers you
a terrorist if you don’t support it for doing so? Your best friend?
We are all
terrorists now… it is just a matter of picking your affiliation.
Home Grown? Islamic? Single Issue? or Al Qaida?
your own Government increasingly views you as a terrorist it is
ever more important to get a second foreign passport, preferably
in a place where the government doesn’t have the time, money or
interest in classifying you as a terrorist. Our two favorite places
at the moment are in the Dominican Republic (click
here for more info) and Paraguay (click
here). We have set-up our own services to fast-track getting
these passports with the greatest ease possible for Dollar Vigilante
subscribers and are making this available to non-subscribers as
well (although TDV subscribers receive a discount).
