Worldwide, people have all bit by bit over time (whichever time frame that might have been is functionally irrelevant) handed their personal sovereignty over to their leaders, rulers, governments through some misguided idea that they are somehow better able to control life’s unknown variables. More recently and in the affluent West, we have done so out of pure laziness and overall apathy. Look where we are now with that.
What we seem unable to grasp is the fact that we are in full control of our body sovereignty but all of our other sovereignty as well. We *choose* to continue on this path of dystopian existence. We can’t travel with a bottle of water along for the flight. Water is a well-known explosive device — obviously. But we are free to buy it at extortionate rates after passport control, so there’s that. We have to surrender to physical examinations of highly dubious benefit in case our buttons or zipper happen to be metal or in case we may have forgotten nail clippers in some obscure pocket in our hand luggage. Obviously we were going to clip our way into the cockpit and overtake the crew so that we may fly gloriously to our deaths. Magnificent. Why do we allow this? It is because we lack critical thinking, and our leaders know this. Our governments have taken our laziness and used it against us *with our full compliance*. Please don’t comment with stuff about security and safety. I travel a lot and always have. We are not safer for these measures. This action was taken to subjugate the public, to herd us all into fearful submission. Business saw their golden opportunity to enhance their sales too. Smaller packages for the same big prices you paid before. Extra taxes came in too, to fund our “increased safety”. I feel so warm and fuzzy on every flight. It’s great.
We are no longer allowed to decide whether we take medications or not, should something particularly virulent appear. The World Health Organization has the power to take over *any nation’s health care system on this planet* with the assistance of the local police forces or any other force to take every single person to be medicated, vaccinated, or inoculated should they see fit.
We’re all acutely aware of the excess use of force broadly by virtually all governmental bodies, which obviously include the police and military, but also agencies which track money, whether it be in crime or not. It is currently a fashion to take homes, bank accounts, cash, and whatever other possession a person might have — including your freedom and your very life — should such a whim strike them. It has become a scary world to live in, and all of this simply because we do not recognize the ultimate truth that *we are sovereign beings*. Spend some time thinking about this. See the all the ramifications. It’s definitely worthy of your time.
Imagine a world where every single person knows from their earliest childhood that they are a sovereign being, their thoughts and actions being entirely their own. Imagine being raised in an environment where people of course discuss their thoughts and feelings but that it is always their own thing. You are never pushed to think or feel other than you yourself think and feel about any given thing and you’re never shamed for thinking and feeling as you do.
Now think about how disenfranchised we feel when we dare to think for ourselves in this world. We’re ostracized and ridiculed, even within our own families. What kind of creatures are we? Not intelligent ones, not loving ones. Our churches profess to teach us these very qualities, and yet …. How cheaply we all went. Our educational institutions tell us that the higher education we receive, the more moralistic, ethical, and humane we are. We’re more responsible with a master’s degree or a Ph.D than we are with a high school diploma, or no education at all. The evidence shows us otherwise, but we lack critical thinking. You don’t need an education to learn critical thinking. You just do it.
Every time you jump into line without thinking about *why*, you are submitting needlessly to the tyranny of the state. Why do we allow government to rule us this way? We have no privacy, we have no freedom as a result. The change can happen when we simply tell them we’ve had enough. There’s no need to join a movement or create an organization. We all just simply say “enough, you’re out, now go away” and it’s done. Government and all of its agencies exist to make our lives easier. This is not what they are doing! If they aren’t doing what they’re meant to do, they need to be stripped of all power to act in our name. They must be disbanded. These sorts of people who would do us this great harm should not ever have such opportunity again. This means that we have to really internalize the fact that it is our apathy that has given them the means to do this. It ends once we are fully cognizant of this fact and take the power back to ourselves.
I welcome discussion on this, no matter when you find this post. Please don’t hesitate to contribute.
