Today in America, hundreds of American baby boys and girls will be openly, systematically and “legally” murdered. They will then often be “legally” dismembered and “legally” sold piecemeal to “legally” protected (and often taxpayer funded) ghouls.
Today in America, the once-private conversations of American citizens are slurped up and analyzed by an Orwellian surveillance system so thorough in its invasion and obliteration of privacy that even the vague thought of such a system would have made even the most vile and authoritarian of gestapo or KGB agents weep with envy.
Today in America, we’re not even free to own our own home. The State owns ’em all. We’re just serfs renting from our master, the Almighty American State. Don’t believe me? Try not paying your rent (“property taxes”) and see how long it takes for your true landlord (the State) to remind you of your true position as a perpetual renter in practice.
It would seem that we’ve lost quite a lot of liberty and freedom here in “the land of the free” over the past 100+ years.
It would also seem that, at the same time, we’ve been spending our children (the ones we allow to live, anyway) into perpetual debt bondage under the weight of a massive military machine supposedly commissioned for the sake of “protecting our freedoms”.
So what’s the deal?
How can we have such a gigantic, globe-dominating military force and yet be losing freedoms and liberties hand over fist year after year and decade after decade?
How can this be?
How can heartbreaking pictures of children tragically murdered across the globe be held out as the reason for our latest step down the long path of American perpetual war…while thousands of American children are “legally” murdered in America each and every day.
Where is our military?
Why is our right to own a home outright not protected?
Why is our right to a private conversation not protected?
Why are our children’s lives not worthy of protection?
Why is our massive, globe-spanning military machine not brought in to defend any of the innocent little baby boys and girls being butchered for convenience and profit here in “the home of the brave”?
Because it’s all a lie.
A very purposeful lie.
If the notions of “freedom”, “liberty”, and “bravery” that we’re encouraged to mindlessly sing about on cue like trained chimps had any real meaning to us at all, we’d be openly questioning what our military is doing spending a(nother) fortune attacking a(nother) country on the other side of the planet while our freedoms are being eviscerated right here and now at home.
The answer is as obvious as it is diligently ignored by most Americans: Our military doesn’t defend us against the most pressing threats to American freedom because our military is a tool of those destroying our freedoms. It’s a central cog in the Orwellian machine.
Something to think about as pictures of terrible things done to Syrian children are used to drag us off to yet another war while thousands of baby boys and girls are murdered openly and “legally” each and every day here in “the land of the free and the home of the brave”.
