A Nation of Sheep

paul-revere-1What would you do if i walked up to you, took your wallet out of your pocket, took out your money and walked off? Would you let me get away? How about if i picked up your phone and started looking through your pictures, messages and contacts? How about if I came into your yard, built a fence dividing the yard in half, pitched a tent on “my side” and declared that section to be mine? Would you kick your feet up in your recliner and say “oh well what can I do about it?” No of course not. You would run me down and probably beat me up. And rightfully so. People today have become conditioned to have a high tolerance of having their rights violated by the government. It seems that unless the violation is bold and in their face, such as those examples you just read, people tend to sit back and not even acknowledge that its happening, and if they do, they have this “oh well what can I do about it” attitude. This is the result of intentional dumbing down, and domestication of the american patriot through a mass propaganda and disinformation campaign carried out through government run education and government controlled media. Despite the fact that the power to change things ultimately lies with us, the citizens, the majority would rather bend over and take it then to stand up and be the voice of opposition. The people have become sheep. And remember, a nation of sheep will be ruled by wolves.

In my conversations with sheep, I mean people, It seems to me that there are three types. (#1)The type like me, that are awake and aware of what is actually going on and are immune to the lies constantly fed to us. (#2) Then the type who simply have not been presented with the right information yet, but are receptive and willing to learn the truth and wake up from the matrix. (#3) And then there are the type of people who are fully committed to their ignorance. They put every bit of effort they can into tuning out the uncomfortable truth. They would rather live in blissful ignorance than face the facts and educate themselves. They have the attitude of “it doesent affect me, why should I care?” or “I’m too busy to be worried about stuff like that. I’d rather come home, watch my football game and relax, i cant be bothered with that stuff”. I have found that there is no bigger waste of time than tying to reach these people. They have chosen to embrace their ignorance and remain chained to a life in servitude of the system. I find the attitude of people like this extremely offensive. Its a slap in the face to the generation of the american revolution. The people who fought and gave their lives to secure freedom for future generations, and to people like me, who simply want to live free.

We have much more to worry about than ourselves. The uncomfortable truth is, if this downward spiral in our country continues, there will be nothing left for future generations. You think things are bad now? Imagine what things are gonna look like when our kids reach adulthood. I have a kid. And I love her with all my heart. ¬†And I’ll be damned if im gonna let her grow up in a soviet or nazi style police state which our country has in many ways already become. For the sake of my daughter’s future, and the sake of all future generations, I commit myself to this fight, no matter how big or little impact I may have. Till my last breath, till my last drop of blood. So help me god.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

-Samuel Adams
