“No vice of the human heart suits it [despotism] better than egoism: a despot will be quick to forgive the people he governs for not loving him, provided they do not love one another.” – Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America, 1835
“…where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” – 2nd Corinthians 3:17
Throughout history societies have developed, flourished, and collapsed; human nature has remained the same for eons. The pages of history illustrate to us that despotism and big government thrive when society is in a state of collapse. Where community has fallen, tyranny will quickly fill the void.
Our modern age manifestation of scientific tyranny is no different. A confluence of issues – both organic change and deliberate meddling – have broken our communities and deep ties to one another.
The surveillance state, which has grown dramatically over the last decade, thrives when mistrust abounds. Are there real threats? Of course there are, the world is dangerous. However, when a healthy society exists these threats are dealt with but social cohesion and trust remains. Despotism needs broken families and broken community.
The system – in its mechanized, wicked desire to perpetuate itself – has convinced many of us that we will be protected and rewarded for following its directives and turning our neighbors in to the authorities, but the truth is that we all lose. Evil will feed evil.
In all of my years of deep research into what has been called the “New World Order”, I’ve come to the conclusion that in order to defeat this system we need to individually look at ourselves in the mirror.
There is a reason that military propaganda targets the willpower and determination of its targets. Half of the battle is in the mind and soul. There is a reason that our culture is saturated with degrading imagery and self-esteem destroying filth. Big brother needs you to need him.
Our very human fiber is being targeted. Every day more people are coming to mirror the demoralized and decadent elite. This is not by accident.
Our solution lies in re-claiming our very souls and reconnecting with humanity. In every case civilizations fall when humanity is debased and loses touch with themselves, their neighbors and the wider world.
Keep your heart true.
