Over Time Look What’s Become of Us

As long as we're living under the umbrella of endless laws taxation permits and licensing we amount to little more than modern day slaves.

As long as we’re living under the umbrella of endless laws taxation permits licensing and above all DEBT we amount to little more than modern day slaves.

It’s a sad state of affairs when societies have been demoralized to the point that a citizen’s self-worth is determined by their amount of consumption. “I am what I do or I am what I own” tends to be the modern day belief of one’s value. In spite of what you think as long as we’re adhering to present day systems we’re all just slaves. Modern day slaves.

Every so often we’re greeted by folks who have this I guess the nicest way I could phrase it would be coherent prerogative attitude. They act as if they’re of special conception and the world revolves around their being content. These folks possess some sort of ambiance that surrounds them into falsely believing they have superiority over everyone in fact over everything.

It's time we all stop kidding ourselves. The people we care for the most won't realize what's surrounding them until they reach the point of breaking the shell of ignorance. Unfortunately by then it's already to late.

A secondary feature of this mindset seems to be that no matter what world events are developing it somehow won’t have any effect on them. Even though they’re incorrect in both assumptions a third segment still remains hidden from their view. They as the rest of us amount to little more than modern day slaves.

This “I am” attitude holds especially true when comparing themselves to the vast majorities who just happen to emanate from other nations. Smart gifted blessed are commonly used adjectives when listening to such personalities dialogue about themselves in the” I am” mode of conversation. Yet it’s been our experience that during varying intervals their conversations always veers in similar directional pathways attempting to justify their mistaken dogmas. Nationality financial status religious beliefs or mis-beliefs even color are but a few that have been mentioned to us in past conversations. If they only understood what divide and conquer really meant.

Their language mirrors a labyrinth. A lengthily and often confusing pathway that always ends at the source of origin... Themselves.

Another amusing occurrence on these pathways of conversation is what often follows. They all convey and eventually dovetail ending up at the source. The source of origination they all lead back to the person who’s doing the talking. You know the self-acclaimed entitled few. The” I am what I do and I am what I own” folks. In-spite of them not understanding that whatever you sell yourself for it never represents the total cost still these personalities can’t grasp they amount to little more than modern day slaves.

I thought it might make for an interesting post to uncover a bit of what seems to be all but forgotten history. Recent history I might add as it’s little more than one hundred and fifty years that I’m venturing back. Towards the end of this post see if it makes sense to the point it may even humble a few into better understanding reality from the fantasy… the freedom fantasy that most of us are currently living in.

I’m asking you to go back to the time that the primary settlers took off searching for a better life. Some of you can actually trace back your family roots to these generations. Can you imagine what was going through their minds at the time.

Think about what they endeavored. Possible death, disease starvation illness safety hostile people and then rethink what your your hazards are. Wake up and stop complaining. It's never been easier to make changes.

The uncertainty of boarding a wooden ship setting sail on a voyage that was sure to take several weeks perhaps more than a month. Men women and children condensed beyond what would be considered hygienic or safe for that matter packed in confined quarters and with minimal supplies. Headed for a destination that if they were lucky enough to make it nobody knew if they would be welcomed or met with the sword.

What could drive people to take such measures? Sacrificing safety comfort even the safety of their families all for an unknown foreign destination not aware what’s waiting for them on the other side. If you’re lucky enough to have a few aging stories passed down from several prior generations you’ll find the word FREEDOM won’t be far from being mentioned in the earliest stages.

They we’re willing to sacrifice everything for a chance at real freedom. The freedom that was diminishing where they currently existed along with the chance at a better life for themselves and their future generations. That was the driving force that allowed the pioneers to accept such poor odds it was the chance of obtaining freedom.

It's your turn next. You'll be following Europe.

It’s your turn next. You’ll be following Europe.

Think about that the next time someone calls you unpatriotic for mentioning anything about a plan “B” that might involve expatriation. Ask yourself who’s really being unpatriotic? The one who turtles complains and complies with the loss of their freedoms or the one who refuses to take it and is willing to risk uncertainty for a better future?

Amplify this by the fact that the overwhelming population that currently makes up the nation of America came from other countries and soon you’ll begin to realize that you’re dealing with nothing more than a hypocrite. In prior posts I wrote about denial being a powerful force and this is an excellent example of it.

You’re dealing with a slave who doesn’t even recognize they are a slave. MOVE ON! It’s one argument you won’t win and if you happen to be foolish enough to pick this argument in public others won’t be able to tell who’s the fool because to them from a distance you’ll both look like twins.

Most of you are still wasting time trying to convince a slave who still doesn't have a clue they're a slave to begin with. The beers cold and the flat screen's still bright... what me a slave You're crazy. Had enough yet?

These personalities happen to be the exact same people who complain about how you can’t seem to do anything today without someone looking over your shoulder. They’re the first ones sending out the email’s warning each other. Statements that all too often contain the phrases it’s wrong, it will never happen here, what ever happened to??? and the grand prize winner for generalization it’s not fair are easily found among these emails. You’ll find other erroneous phrases but that’s where it tends to stops. They won’t do much beyond that because they still feel that they’re the entitled ones the free nobles and it can never happen them.

Nobodies entitled to anything just review your history and another thing worth mention is nobody can take something from you without your willing consent and that includes being a victim of violence. Learn how to protect yourself and your freedom in that way at the very least you’ve increased your odds tenfold.

Better start thinking about the future view. The folks in Europe are starting to visualize it. Reality sucks and over the next while is only going to getting worse. The wave of chaos takes a long time and is hardly noticeable until it reaches the shore. There's going to be a lot of people getting used to a view similar to this.

Many seem to feel the times are changing and I’ll have to agree they are. In spite of that fact the world still remains full of opportunities. As such some nations will be decelerating while others are pouring on the throttle. It’s how markets work and it’s how the world works. Change is the only guarantee we have next to death and taxes and the ladder falls into that aforementioned willing consent.

 

Back then the brave few believed in something that modern times has reduced to little more than a noun. FREEDOM they believed in freedom the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. Today with the majority of us misunderstanding what was once clearly understood is exactly the reason why we currently find ourselves we we are. Little more than modern day slaves. Until next time this is Barry in DR.

Its true! We have lost sight of what our forefathers fought so hard to gain… in the wake of the tragedy in Paris last Friday, reactions of our leaders makes that crystal clear to me.

Dylan, As mentioned Look what’s become of us. Using your example of France’s recent tragedy let’s look a bit deeper. So what’s their answer? President Hollande wants to ratify their constitution and one of his key points is extending their state of emergency indefinitely. Similar to 9/11 the sheep will line up and willing give up their freedoms for a false sense of security. Question if this really has anything to do with terrorism or does it really involve a plan to have the clueless willingly give up their civil liberties and at the same time forfeit addition funding to fight their so called cause. Question who actually funds these groups? This has taken decades to accomplish and is exactly what they want. People willing to give up their freedoms. You can’t go into other countries and for a noun titled freedom create wars, kill millions of innocent people, swindle their natural resources and claim it’s in the name of the greater good. Only a gullible uninformed public will believe that and just because their gullible doesn’t mean they will be forgiven for what they sat on their asses and let happen. Ignorance or (IG Norance) however you choose to pronounce it won’t cut it. Their coming their angry and rightfully so. The highest percentage of them have had their families and lives changed forever all by the same people who brought you your new found freedom.
The only thing I still question is “Over Time What Will Now Become of Us”.

Do politicians ever really care about society? President Hollande wants to change the French Constitution, but he also wants to extend the state of emergency indefinitely. Why? Is this really about terrorism? Sure, more than 80% of the French are willing to give up civil liberties for security, just as Americans responded after 9/11. That is the problem, for once power is given to government it is never returned. That is just a fact of life.
