The pandemic of Panic, and the illusion…
It became evident by looking at film taken on 9/11 that most people trusted both authority and themselves. Most all attempted to help others while leaving in an orderly fashion. But much more was evident… Even at the peak of this disaster, most did not consider themselves victims, but survivors, and all, to the last person, had the potential for heroism. Those who were old, or hurt, were helped along by the others collectively… And though leadership was evident from police to the fire department, most individuals accepted responsibility for both self and the welfare of others. If given the opportunity, it seemed evident that most all there would have attempted to take control of the situation, for the common good.
This could be mirrored by the dismal social breakdown of Katrina in New Orleans. There, thousands floundered without a manageable direction, and devoid of sound leadership became victims unable to respond but to plead for assistance over and over again. Individual responsibility was mostly for immediacy, overwhelmingly selfish in nature, and in some instances, violent and grossly immoral. Even some of the police were involved in anti social behavior, from theft to murder, and some were so disengaged, they committed suicide. We must ask ourselves why. How could we have such a duality extending from the same country, The United States of America?
“You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.” -Aristotle
As the buildings began to fall in New York, those in immediate danger ran for their lives as individuals, and yet helped others along even when it was clearly endangering theirs. This indicated that the higher and cohesive social standards instilled by morals and ethics did not break down, and was of a higher order. This observation is one defining hope that we can collectively prevail by the use of this higher order, and come together agreeably for a common cause. It gives hope that the American spirit has substance, and is animate and alive and well in some segments of society. It also indicates that it is grossly lacking and dis-integrative in others… If we can define this strength of spirit, this power of will, this character of purpose, this higher brand of courage, we can emulate, and promote it for the good of our cause…. Liberty from tyranny.
“There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.” -W. Clement Stone
When a government and a Nationalized media promotes multiple imminent threats with the intent on creating panic in the public for an agenda, this is a cold and calculated betrayal of trust… that is by nature treasonous to humanity. Could in fact our government have designed and instigated this 9-11 presentation for the panic it would promote? Could they actually have wanted to tear down cohesive social fabrics that hold us together as a nation, for the promotion of some form of change, a new way to make money? A promotion of a corporate agenda? If so, why?
When we see a situation endorsed to be so dire that we are forced to trust authority at all cost, we should instantly step back and look at the broader picture. Is it foolhardy not to be cautious, thinking of the possibility of a trap, when the principles that are the very framework of our nation seems in jeopardy? Who in their right mind, without sound facts, would be expected to utilize common sense in place of blind faith? Is it imprudent to believe that little is left to chance in this world of power and control, even an economic downturn? Should we trust a government that didn’t see it coming, or one who did, and did nothing to prevent it? A government who would ride on the tsunami it created, for power and control, as is evident by the spying, the manipulation of the or Bill of Rights and Constitution by the Patriot Act and the NDAA who destroyed due process?
Ignorance and laziness is cemented into a society by dependency on big-brother government, and a tyrannical government will nurture that… And ideologies instilled as a mindset by repetition for fifty years will be hard to undo. It will take something never before seen in history, a collective sense of purpose, to save our Republic.
In essay five I discussed the metaphor of the collective liquid vortex, where individuals attempting to take up a common cause will circle collectively. I suggest now, that some individuals in America, motivated by selfishness and deceit, stand entirely apart from this vortex, alone in their despondency and not for the common good. Though each situation is different, some play the system, and might be regarded as a parasite, dependent on the hard work and positive attitudes of others to survive. We must somehow reach the mindset of these Americans with open arms, and show them the folly of their ways, as indeed they are slaves, and the bane of a free nation. It must be understood that the biggest difference between these two mindsets is the idea of individual responsibility. Over fifty percent of our population are in some need of public assistance now, and that is the rub. Of all of the possibilities for Liberty destruction, this it seems is primary.
The fact of the matter is that government no longer view themselves as tools of the people, or the guardians of liberty, but weld their influence to manipulate their own selfish designs… and the masses are now pawns in their myriad of mind games. Mind games that are scientifically formulated…
What we once thought normal can disintegrate quickly when the proper amount of pressure is applied. Ideas might not be pounded into us, but introduced in subtle ways, and done over a long period of time with repetition. In this way an individual might even begin to believe his ideas stem from original thoughts, and will deny even the remote possibility of coercion.
Though some social models might need to be changed, the point here is that one should make those decisions on a conscious level, and not subliminally by various forms of propaganda. Truth should be demanded… Slavery of the spirit is just as real as any physical chain, and just as effective for massive control of the population. Reality is a concept not easily defined, and yet some are so certain to be correct, they will go to their deaths to defend an illusion, instilled cleverly to be true.
Millard Fillmore (1850–1853) Franklin Pierce (1853–1857) “It is not strange . . . to mistake change for progress.” Thomas Woodrow Wilson (1913–1921) “Some people call me an idealist. Well, that is the way I know am an American. America is the only idealistic nation in the world.”
Ronald Wilson Reagan (1981–1989 “America is too great for small dreams.” “We are a nation that has a government—not the other way around. And that makes us special among the nations of the earth.”
