My favorite anti-communitarian Alaskan outdoors-woman, Niki Raapana, wrote a post that made a great point regarding what We the Sheeple can do to protest our out of control fascist, emerging Brave-New-World-Order-Global- Government....and public protests and demonstrations 'aint it.
Watched Aaron Russo's Freedom to Fascism last night. It was the best explanation of the Tax Honesty movement I've ever seen, but then it's the only one I've ever seen. While I don't trust several of the "our side" experts he interviewed (Ruppert, Fitts, etc) it didn't detract one bit from his presentation of the story. How the bankers seized covert control over the United States is essential knowledge for Americans who choose to resist the emerging harmonization of norms. I did not like his recommendations for action at the end, but I never like the suggestions that we get organized and march on Washington DC. I don't believe we can restore constitutional govt using Marxist street actions.
I agree wholeheartedly....have the Tea Parties made one iota of a difference? Nah...Sarah Palin and the neo-con faux conservatives hijacked it to serve as the right wing of dialectic propaganda events.
Demonstrations and rallies and such are nothing more than literal manifestations of the farce known as DEMOCRACY. Mob rules. Claiming authority not by what is righteous or just, but based solely on the appearance of massive support.
The original Tea Party wasn't a public rally with attendant placards and assorted people dressed in costumes with the presumed leaders haranguing them into an emotional frenzy with bullhorns chanting trite slogans.
No, it was a bunch of saboteurs that disguised themselves as Indians, snuck aboard the British merchant ships and threw the merchant's wares into the harbor water.
Nowadays, the Media/Government Corpratocracy would have labeled them as terrorists and than instituted a whole new Federal bureaucracy to deal with the danger of the Homeland tea supply, and will henceforth require strip searches and questioning before allowing the average citizen to buy a permit for the privilege of purchasing the carefully measured, taxed and dispensed teabags.
But I digress.
Niki makes another great point:
If we really are the masters here, then why would we stand outside our servants' offices and protest their erroneous policies and laws?
Great point. Isn't it obvious? Our media and educational institutions all have brainwashed generations of We the Sheeple into believing the "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" fairy tale that we live in a country with a Government by the people, for the people. That hasn't been true since at least Abe Lincoln's time.
Why wouldn't we draft a resolution and vote/pass a people's initiative? If protecting our property and prosperity is the only legitimate purpose for govt and we have the power to fire them and restore the rule of law, then why would we need to protest in the streets? To me it's the sign of our corrupted nation.
Yes, it's also a sign of just how far the idea of "Democracy" has now been inculcated into the mainstream consciousness. When the masses think a mob demonstration is the only way to "be heard" and "raise awareness," it's a sure sign that the Representative Republic is dead.
Long live our new Communitarian Democracy!
I wish Russo would have ended the film with a contact address to help instigate a statewide national referendum to put a cap on the feds... revoke executive order privileges, end the federal reserve, nullify the IRS, abolish Agenda 21 and sustainable development, and fire every Czar and office created to outmaneuver the US Constitutional requirements for separation of powers. We are the law here, that is our only power... and that is the only way we can restore our power.
I agree....but also don't believe it's going to happen.
This whole thing is gonna crash and burn.
The only thing left to do is get ready for it and enjoy the show.
