Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. – Benjamin Franklin
A nation or world of people who will not use their intelligence are no better than mere beasts of burden who do not have intelligence and are steaks on the table by choice and consent. – Mayer Amschel Rothschild of the Rothschild Banking family (harsh but it strikes a point)
Wherein men and women allow themselves to be coerced by means of fear into giving up liberty, no matter how justified they may believe it to be, they will never find freedom. Laws, and restrictions have yet to prove themselves be an effective counter-measure to unsatisfying conditions, as illustrated by the numerous laws passed and the persisting conditions and seemingly worsening conditions of today. Legislature only serves those with agendas written in the fine print and makes it harder for those who abide by it to keep lawful, for those who don’t it remains much the same: they never intended to nor do they care how many laws are passed. There is no need to go creating enemies, It is the underlying problems that need addressing and no amount of paperwork will ever solve that.
Humanity needs to start thinking of itself as an organism, and to address the various cancers and illnesses within that organism, and not by means of stigmatization, ostracizing, or dissecting but by healing those areas that need healing. Wherein they allow themselves to be silenced on any grounds (especially under the false taboo premise of respect) the voice of freedom does not ring. As cells of the human body, people have become disconnected, isolated, no longer in communication with other cells. The sharing of ideas, working together, and cooperative practices are the only thing that will solve these problems. Not one big-brained guy who will sit down and hash everything out for you nor will any elected official. People blame names and faces, look beyond names and faces for the meaning. It is not the players but the game itself that is fundamentally flawed. Names change, players change, but the game remains much the same. Revolution is to revolve in a circle, it is time to evolve, to expand outwards.
Try not to create enemies as many do, all you need do is co-operate with each other find what you have in common instead of differences, and figure out what world in which you wish to live. This can be done in scales, start with what you can change in your life, then work your way up from there, community, country, world. Simultaneously if your officials truly cared about you they would realize that power needs to be decentralized back to the people. Emanate some love into the world by embodying it, and that does not mean being happy all the time, a little compassion will make the world a better place.
If you have a party of 5 working independently that work will take much longer than if the five were to give about 20% of their effort to each other. On extreme home makeover they raise house in 7 days, that shows you the power of teamwork and communication.
The solution to any problem is not to be anti-anything that is to create resistance, label one hand good the other evil and try to force them through each other. The path of least resistance is the greatest, that means starving what you don’t like (starve the beast) and supporting that which you do. Non-violence, would be to slide your hands alongside each arm. No need to fight a bully for the sandbox, just play somewhere else, and when enough do this, the bully will have to either join you or play alone.
Now liberate, liberate, liberate…
