Collectivity as structure in an act of faith
Collective behavior represents the action of groups, and at times multiples of groups, as in the middle of each the individual pulls for a common cause. For a goal of “taking back power from government,” it is emphatic that Individuals compromise for specific common goals. To compromise, one must have two elements, collective faith and a projected common goal. To have either, one must possess truth. Previous toxic relationships that bind us, black vs. white, gay vs. straight, the have and the have not’s, right and left, is a never-ending squabble, and must be put aside for a higher aspiration. Yet, to do this, the faith necessary for our American mindset does not equate. Over half of the population now needs sustenance from government, and this dependency is a cancer to a free America, where accountability and responsibility is the goal.
The only segment of growth since Obama got into office is government, the private sector is floundering, and both jobs and faith are dwindling. This scenario is perfect for bankers and a war machine who finances both construction and deconstruction, war and peace, and they are trying with every fiber of their being to bring us into another world war.
At this moment in time, our peculiar circumstances have arisen partially because Government goes unchecked by us, and not held fully accountable for action, including deceit. Unrequited circumstances that bind us is a mask of abject pretenses is reality. We are being played. On our money we put “In God we trust,” and we should not trust anybody, no institution, no nebulous ideal, with our minds, our spirits, or our liberty. Only truth found in education can set us on the road to freedom, and yet we must have the collective strength of purpose to create and then sustain it.
I assure you, these perpetrators might seemingly laugh at what we are led to believe are feeble attempts, and yet, it is a law of physics, and undeniable, that one ringing truth on a rock of false intent can crack it. Even a diamond can be cleaved where light can reach its heart. We are not lost so long as one element of will is left, one lone voice in a sea of doubt will rise to the surface. This element is our only hope, and is the strength in our arms.
Collective social action has never before been witnessed on the scale we now need to win our country back. It will be unprecedented, and if successful, will usher in a new age of personal freedom, individual responsibility, and unparalleled fortune for America.
Collective behavior takes organization, and this means leadership. Leadership we must choose to represent us, and held accountable to us. Without this cohesiveness, irrational behavior based on emotion and falsity will ensue, and this can lead to the destructive force of violence, the last form of civil disobedience. Noncompliance is the strongest form of civil disobedience. Ask an Indian.
Without reliable leadership, collective communication cannot be trusted to be accurate and stymies any form of collective decision making. As we see now, from the black box to face book, rumors are becoming news, purposely embellished as fact to promote agenda or to just confuse truth. In this way the masses are more easily controlled, and new mandates can more easily slip past, presently undetected. In the fray, those in control can more easily manipulate. This alone can ultimately destroy or thwart any effort to a collectively plan, minimizing the potency it will take to achieve any goal for change.

“A nation under a well regulated government, should permit none to remain uninstructed. It is monarchical and aristocratical government only that requires ignorance for its support.” -Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, 1792
