Growing up in America today, our president and our leaders are
teaching our children that it's OK to kill someone if you suspect
them of harboring ideas that the United States of America is
committing crimes in other countries. No more of this
right-to-a-fair-trial, innocent-until-proven-guilty crap.
Just kill them if you suspect them of opposing American ideas.
Just blow up their countries and kill whomever you like.
If you have the weaponry, you really don't need a reason.
Might surely makes right. That's the new reality. Just listen
to all the new presidential candidates. That's what virtually
all of them are saying.
I myself receive many notes from people telling me they can't
watch the TV news anymore. It's just too depressing. And
confusing. I also especially get this in conversations with many
people I consider less politically aware than myself. They know
something is wrong with the newspapers, or the stories they hear
on the boob tube, but they just don't have time to analyze their
own confusion and sort out the wheat from the chaff. It all sounds
so much alike, one false claim after another, and besides, who
has the time?
And even if we did have the time, what could we "as ordinary
individual citizens" actually do about such doubts. Amid all this
flag waving and these terror alerts, who would listen?
There are more important things to do, aren't there?
If you wave the flag and have enough money to operate in the "right" circles, you can steal anything you want (because you can buy a judge to get you off if somebody tries to catch you), or kill anybody you want,
regardless of what they might have done. Life is now all image, and you can get away with absolutely anything if you have the right connections. Do something wrong if you like; then just shape the image to make it appear right. In this day and age, that's all that counts.
Long ago, my father told me this is the way the world is. I refused to believe him, and as a result have no valuable possessions in this world except a rather large and cherished circle of noble friends, most of whom are just as poor as I am.
How we view the world all comes down to money, is what my dad said. That's why politicians go corrupt, why people betray their friends, why real stories of what's happening in the world are not shown on TV.
What most people don't realize is who they are and what they do actually is reflected in the world at large. Since a large majority feels they are powerless and have no influence over events in the larger geopolitical sphere, this is exactly the case: they are powerless and have no influence.
Take 9/11. For more than a year, no one has dared to speak
about the embarrassing fact that the official pronouncements on
those tragic events that took place do not add up. Wars and laws
that were planned BEFORE that sad day were blamed ON those
horrid events. But it has not been politically correct to ask those
questions. To do so has been considered unpatriotic in this time of
national emergency, this War on Terror. But what if the official
version WAS a lie? How does that affect us? Do you think more of
these things will happen if we fail to catch the grand manipulators
in their lies?
And does that matter? Heck, life goes on. All the old sayings are
relevant. Go along to get along. You can't fight City Hall. All the
noble philosophy in the world doesn't mean a thing when your
belly isn't full.
So we are raising a generation of kids to whom morality and fairness, as well and truth and honor, are no longer important. They are inconvenient distractions in the lifelong drive toward the acquisition of material wealth. Philosophy is now a superfluous exercise; what really counts is connections. Allegiances to friends and causes are hopelessly out-of-date and quaint but useless relics of a bygone era of civilization.

The Time For Revolution Is Now
There are those who would protest that this is too radical an idea, too
big to be considered, too shocking to ever gain a hold in the popular
imagination. But I submit there is nothing else to be done. We must demand they resign and make it stick. Otherwise, we are lost. Because
there is no fixing this corrupt system. And to not fix it is to throw away the future of the human species.

I have the latest update on that terrorist list you've been asking
for, Mr. President. Can you please send it to the Office for Homeland security? I know they will listen to you. http://www.indymedia.org/front.php3?article_id=316125&group=webcast
"When you fall into enemy hands, whether it be as a US soldier into the hands of the enemy or as a patriot into the hands of the police state, your best weapon and defense is silence. More importantly, if you are part of any group of people whether it be a group of freedom loving, Constitution supporting patriots or just your local home church, silence can be your only defense. "
Police State - The Patriot's Code of Silence

"We have an obligation to speak up, speak out and keep things on an even
footing while Americans are being drowned in propaganda and a nationalism bordering on fascism and self-righteousness; gross self-interest at the expense of nearly every other nation on earth that doesn't "toe the line" according to our dictates, empowered and backed first by financial blackmail and then by military might. This isn't anti-American rhetoric. This is a Pro-Constitutional morality-check in the midst of serious emotional and intellectual manipulation of the masses. Especially during this time of unbridled 'nationalism' and patriotic fervor, those of sound mind MUST level the playing field. How would you like it if fundamentalist Muslims worldwide, who believe they are morally superior to us in the west (we're infidels and sinners as they see it) decided they'd invade America and right all our wrongs?? What if they invaded and decided to end racism, set free OUR political prisoners, close our bars and distilleries, shut down the porn industry and impose THEIR concept of "right society" upon US?
