KEN’S CORNER: Mental manipulation & the Art of Politics
Commentary by TLB Contributing Writer: Ken LaRive
It is politics as usual, with no holds bared. A war, it is waged in the hearts and minds of the populous like religious fanaticism.
Our standards are taught at mother’s knee, and with experience we attempt life with confident bearing… But as we look upon the world, we find joy and foreboding on one hand, happiness and quiet desperation on the other, and ask why.
We grapple with what is perceive to be good and bad and right and wrong, with decisions based on what is speculated to be the greatest. Torn by the facets of politics, ethics, and the meaning of life, our strength is our constant need to balance.
In our daily process of living, we judge others who are not like us. We justify reasons for being based on the assumptions of the facts we are fed, true or false. Confused and fearful, we give control of our lives to others, where duel-concepts are composed for the man behind the curtain to point the way.
Everyone, even presidential hopefuls will find flaws in the opus of life, and eventually held accountable.
We have watched women and children burn after a month of standoff, using words like “compound”, and “cult,” and ultimately found our understanding was based on lies. With acuity of what is universal, eternal, and justifiable Truth, we watched people jump from the fires of twin towers, and in the midst of horror we search for explanations. Ancient texts are manipulated by man-made agendas, separating and isolating us into a one truth at the exclusion of all others, and in that process domination is born, with another collection of slaves.
As we grow older we find ourselves obtuse, stubborn and uncompromising, adamant and fixated, with defensible labels for all others who are different, be they liberal or conservative, religious or secular.
Mental manipulation is now a science, and the war that wages between our minds and hearts are used for the schema of those who understand that power, as they have found even original thoughts can be despoiled. Dominated and maneuvered by prejudiced idealism, blind faith, and myopic fundamentalism, it seems at first glance that as collective human beings we are herded like sheep to the slaughter …but this is not our true nature.
Men resist the shackles of mind and body, and when we see the light of raison d’être, we are drawn to it as one. Truth and Love lends hope as a beacon of reason, where we may someday stand on our own two feet, united …and knowing is half the battle won.
Looking for Truth? Looking for a Standard to pick up? Looking for a worthy direction?

From the Author, Ken La Rive – We in the Liberty movement have been fighting to take back this country for less than a decade, peacefully and with the love of God and country in our hearts. Our banner has been trampled on and displaced by a multitude of distractions, further eroding our nation and the cause for Liberty. And so, as we are pulled by forces we cannot fathom, powerful entities with unlimited resources stolen from our future, unaccountable trillions printed out of thin air and put on our backs as debt, we must formulate the most pitiful of all questions any patriot might ask in the final hour: Are we going to fight for our master’s tyranny, or are we going to demand the return of our civil liberties and Constitution? Are we going to choose The Banner of Liberty, or the shackles of voluntary servitude? Will it be a war for corporate profit, or a war to regain our ability to self govern, as the blood and toil of our forefathers presented to us, their children, as a gift? I fear that decision is emanate. I fear that any decision will be a hard one, but my greatest fear of all is that the decision has already been made for us.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
