There's a meme in the world of debate that once you start to compare the politics of today to the politics of Germany during Hitler's reign the debate is over and you've lost. So, I'm going to start this article by comparing modern American politics to Hitler's Germany and other 20th century collectivist political schemes. The point of this beginning is to do so. If you don't want to read further, than don't. You see, I don't buy the meme. Such a meme is developed, in my humble opinion, simply because some people don't want to face the growing evil and choose instead to remain willfully ignorant as to what has been happening in the land that was supposed to be a beacon of individual freedom shining to the world.
The first thing I'm going to do is take the holocaust thing right out of
the picture. Many people conflate fascism with murdering innocent
people due to their religion or some other innocent aspect of their
character perceived as a flaw by those in power. That really has nothing
to do with the philosophy of fascism. That has to do with scapegoating.
That has to do with a divide and conquer mentality. The state doesn't
have to be murdering innocent people in death camps to be a fascist
state. It doesn't have to murder in order to be criminal.
That said, don't think that just because such things haven't happened
yet they won't happen in the future. It's just that murder and putting
people in prison (FEMA) camps isn't what makes a nation a fascist
nation, fascism is merely the unholy marriage of centralized (federal)
government power and corporate power. This is tantamount to a marriage
between organizations with a monopoly on legalized force and
organizations with virtual monopolies on wealth. It is a very dangerous
partnership for those of us who wish to remain free peoples.
The reason these two entities would want to unite is so they can steal
your birthright. They actually want to get you to believe that they have
your best interests at heart so that they can deceive you into giving
over all your real wealth to them. The real wealth I speak of comes in
the form of private property. It seems they believe that, as long as
they own all the property, they own you. This is the very thing the
founders of the United States were trying to alleviate when they came
over here in the first place. They wanted to establish a nation where
government could not dictate what you could and could not do on your own
private property. That's why the wrote the Bill of Rights, to codify
the limits of power that agents of the government could exercise over
individuals and their property.
Private property is freedom. Without it one is basically a serf to the
landlord. One is more or less indebted to whoever owns the land one
lives upon. One must follow the rules and regulations that landlord lays
down or one risks being evicted from one's residence and thrown
unceremoniously into the street. As long as one owes a mortgage, one
does not own one's private property, the bank does and one is their
serf. As long as one pays taxes on one's property, one does not own
one's private property, the government does and one is their serf. One
is only truly free when one has bought one's property outright or paid
off any loans one might have on it and no one else can make any claim
that they can legitimately steal it for any reason.
At one time, owning your own property was known as the American dream,
and many people were living it. Now it has become a nightmare. Now most
are mortgaged to the hilt. Most are in debt to the point where if they
lose their job they won't be able to make all their payments and in a
matter of weeks might lose everything they supposedly own. Everyone has
to pay taxes. Taxes have gone up for everyone, even the working poor. No
one owns their own private property anymore, no one except the
government, the banks, and the financial corporations. This is why they
are becoming richer while you become poorer. This is why you're having
problems paying for your lifestyle, why your quality of living goes down
while theirs goes up. They have monopolies on the things that matter
and you're going to have to pay through the nose in order to get the
crumbs that fall from their table.
The ruling elite have all the real wealth, and they've gained it through
illegal means. They've bamboozled us all by issuing debt based fiat
paper currency instead of honest commodity based money. It is a scheme
that's been going on for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Those who
perpetrate it know very well that their system will eventually
collapse. How could they not know? Historically, it has happened time
and time again. They understand the harm such a system will do to the
middle classes. They also understand that those who perpetrate the crime
will end up with unfathomable wealth while the huge majority of
humanity will be wallowing in poverty. The potential for reward is great
and the risk low, for historically they have not been held accountable
and after a financial collapse it will be they who, like the royalty of
the middle ages, will be able to dictate how the wealth will flow, and
they will be very stingy indeed when it comes to the lot of the serfs
they will own.
When it comes down to it, I believe that all most people want is a nice
place to call their own, a place where they can raise a family, a place
where they make the decisions that will affect their lives, a place
where they are sovereign. This is something that people have been
striving for since time immemorial, to get the tyrants who tend to
gravitate to the halls of power, the halls of government, out of their
lives. This is something that the ruling elite have been striving to
deny the people for just as long. This is what freedom boils down to,
the individual's ability to make the choices, good or bad, that will
determine that individual's destiny. That freedom starts with the
ability to own private property. This is what America was supposed to be
about. It is why the Bill of Rights was incorporated into the highest
law of the land. It is the foundation of the American dream.
The dream has been stolen by criminal banks and their government
accomplices, for they have acted in a criminal manner by ignoring the
highest law in the land. It has been stolen by promises broken, promises
of a better, fairer way, promises that could not be kept for they were
based on lies, deception, theft, coercion and force. We have been
conned, folks. It's time to look in the mirror and admit that. We have
been conned and those doing the conning continue to try to get you to
blame anyone but them for the financial downturn we continue to suffer
through. Those who continue to believe that the central banks are not at
fault and that fractional reserve, fiat systems are legitimate continue
to empower the criminality. Those government officials who continue to
work to protect the central banking systems continue to deny you your
birthright, the freedom you deserve.
The criminality and fraud need to be exposed. The spotlight needs to
shine on those who have perpetrated it. Iceland has done so. They have
arrested high level bankers and politicians. Now they are well on their
way to fiscal recovery. The people of the United States still seem to
want to remain frightened and willfully ignorant. They don't seem to
want to admit that they've been played. They don't want to admit that
we've become a fascist nation. They're frightened of what could happen
should they attempt to tear down the collectivist system that the
establishment has become.
There's really nothing to be afraid of, but the first step is to admit
that there is a debt problem, then the common folk need to divorce
themselves from those who have caused this problem. We need to insist
that the thieves can no longer steal from us. We need to tell the so
called "too big to fail" and their government agents that we are not
afraid of what will happen should they fail. In fact, we should help to
peacefully bring about a failure through criminal prosecution of those
who have, in the past, threatened the masses with violence should they
not get their way.
There are many ways to help restore the American dream. It begins by
realizing we are no longer free and we are no longer represented by
government, but that fascism has imposed itself in our government
system. We must strive to divorce corporate power from government power.
We must then strive to deny our consent to those who would try to
impose their rule upon us. We must remove the levers of power they have
constructed to impose their will upon society, levers that cannot be
accessed by the common folk. These levers include the ability to create
currency out of thin air (central banks) and the ability to impose taxes
on private property and then claim that property, by force if
necessary, should the so called owners refuse to pay (government).
We must strive to allow everyone to be free. We must strive to create a
voluntary society based on love and trust that individuals will make
good decisions for themselves rather than trying to regulate everyone
through restrictive law which creates a society based on fear that
individuals will make bad decisions for themselves. All these can be
accomplished by civil disobedience. All these can be accomplished when
enough of us simply say "No, I will not obey" to the powers that be.
There is no doubt the criminality must be dealt with and cleansed from
the system. Most people realize that something is wrong, but they don't
know what. They find it difficult to do something about it. There are
several movements that are striving to deal with the problem and bring
freedom back to the masses. There is the movement to audit and then
abolish the Fed. There is the Tea Party movement. There is the Occupy
movement. There is a movement away from the mainstream media and toward
alternative sources of information. All these are valid ways to bring
about positive change, but one must be wary of the tendency for the
powers that be to infiltrate these movements in an attempt to neutralize
them. When the message morphs into something other than peace and
freedom, than one knows the mechanisms of co-opting are at work.
If you belong to a movement then it is important that you remember to
stay on message. This is perhaps the most difficult thing of all to
accomplish. Lasting change seldom happens overnight. Sudden change is
usually violent. A peaceful world can hardly be achieved through violent
means, as the violent means becomes the violence in the world. Freedom
can hardly be achieved through tyrannical means, as the tyranny becomes
the established method. An honest system can hardly be achieved through
corrupt methods as the corruption rots away the system to its core.
Adhere to your principles and you will lead be example. You will become
the reminder to all of how things should be, how they should operate.
You will become the change you wish to see and the world will be better
