Blind Obedience to the State: The Sheep Are Now Ready for Slaughter!

by Gary D. Barnett: Targeting
Iran: A Fool's Game!



A really
efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful
executive of political bosses and their army of managers control
a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they
love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned,
in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda,
newspaper editors and schoolteachers…. The greatest triumphs of
propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by
refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a
practical point of view, is silence about truth.

~ Aldous Huxley

Men are born
with free will, so why do they behave as slaves? Most in this country
believe that the politicians are civil or "public" servants,
while the common man is king. Most believe because they cast a ballot
to choose their "leaders" that they are free, but the
politicians among us are really the masters of a population of slaves.
To paraphrase Charles de Gaulle, the politician simply poses as
a servant, in order to become the master.

In America
today, the many are ruled by the few. The many allow this tyranny
voluntarily, and with open arms. The only men who can be reduced
to servitude are those who choose to do so. For men who cling to
liberty with passion can never be ruled, and will never allow their
freedom to be taken from them. These are men of truth and character,
and sadly, they are the extreme minority. These men of integrity
are now directly in the crosshairs of this oligarchy called America,
and without them, the rest of society is doomed to a life of serfdom.

To obey the
restrictive rules crafted by the politicians, and without resistance,
is to guarantee the destruction of liberty. It is not only a fatal
form of apathy, but it is also the basis for the destruction of
our soul. Politicians after all, are the lowest form of man, and
do not deserve respect when their aim is to rule over and control
the rest of us. For what are we if we simply do as others in power
demand, without the courage to stand up for what is right? What
are we if we bow our heads in fear when our fellow man is being
trampled? What are we when we allow all that we have earned to be
taken from us by force, and say or do nothing to stop it? What have
we become when the worth of a man is judged by his allegiance to
the state?

It is time
for these questions to be answered honestly, because those who are
willing to fight against tyranny are now being targeted for extinction.
The nefarious Senate of this land just passed Senate
Bill 1867
, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. If
accurately titled, it would be called instead the Sedition Act of
2012. Most of those opposed to this horrible legislation are concentrating
on just two sections, those being Sections 1031 and 1032. While
Section 1031 allows for any American to be captured, held indefinitely
without charge or trial, tortured or worse, the rest is not much
better, and the entire bill should be scrapped immediately!

It is instructive
to understand that the U.S. government and its military have been
for the past ten years capturing and incarcerating foreigners and
Americans, and without benefit of due process. The president now
"claims" the power to assassinate any on earth he chooses
to, including American citizens, and without charge or trial. But
this new legislation will in my opinion not only massively expand
these so-called powers, but also bring them under the guise of legality.
This is more dangerous than most realize, because it will help keep
the sheep at bay when mass roundup of American citizens becomes
the norm. This is due to the nonsensical popular belief that just
because the ruling class makes a law, it must be followed, even
if it is bad law.

And now
fusion center documents
have labeled any who investigate the
Oklahoma City bombing as terrorists. Pair this with the passage
of S. 1867, and the terrifying picture becomes clear. The government
now holds the position that any who question what goes on in this
country, or even any who question the government story line, are
practicing terrorism. This cannot be doubted, especially considering
the fusion center story, and the passage by the senate of S. 1867.

What this means
in real terms is that all dissenters, all truth tellers, all protesters,
and all who question "authority," can in the eyes of government
be captured and imprisoned indefinitely, and without benefit of
trial. All of us who question what this government does and what
its motives are, can now be hauled away to concentration camps,
and even tortured or murdered, all under the umbrella of the "law!"

As for me,
I question every single thing this government says and does, and
I investigate most every government action. Because of this despicable
legislation, what will become of the truth tellers? What will become
of honest libertarians? What will become of those of us who are
unafraid to expose lies and corruption? What will become of all
of us?

The scope of
this legislation is far reaching, and without limit. The literal
barbarity of this is obvious to any right thinking person, and the
probable consequences of speaking one's mind in the future could
be deadly.

The most dangerous
sound now could be the sound of silence, for if we do not speak
out and rebel against this travesty, we will be doomed to a life
of servitude. When we finally refuse to serve no more, then we will
at once be free. No man should serve another by force, and no man
deserves to be free if he does.

It is incredible
how as soon as a people become subject, it promptly falls into such
complete forgetfulness of its freedom that it can hardly be roused
to the point of regaining it, obeying so easily and willingly, that
one is led to say that this people has not so much lost its liberty
as won its enslavement.
