"There is no FREEDOM without NOISE -
and no STABILITY without VOLATILITY."
Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, the hive mind of Japan and now Tyrannical America all exist because the people of those countries wished it to be so.
All the nations above, and every other maniacal nation/empire that existed throughout history, were loudly applauded, cheered and actively supported not only in the early stages of its creation, but as they grew increasingly dangerous not only to their friends and neighbors, but to themselves. The descent into tyranny is always warmly welcomed by the populace.
Is the present day political and corporate corruption, the abject and transparent central bank controlled and imposed financial swindle, the massive cultural debasement of moral values and personal responsibility, is all this and more the cause of our problems or just the symptom of an even greater disease?
Can we honestly point fingers at they, them and those and completely ignore the ultimate source of the illness, the personal dysfunction and corruption that springs from within “We the People”?
No substantial changes will ever take place until “We the People” collectively, and more importantly, individually fully accept the fact that while ‘we’ as individuals are not responsible for this country’s, nor the world’s, problems ‘we’ as individuals are completely responsible for our ‘self’ and the problems that result from our individual beliefs, pursuits and decisions.
The buck does not stop at the President and the executive branch, with Congress or any other legislative body, at the Supreme Court and the ‘justice’ system, in academia or the corporate world. The buck stops here, right here, within me and you and they and them.
Since I have no control over anyone else other than myself, my first and most pressing responsibility is to enact change within my ‘self’ first if I ever wish to see it widely disseminated. Everything else flows from this inalienable truth, that “We the People” are ultimately and solely responsible for “We the People”.
Only after we as individuals have declared our own personal sovereignty, and then embody it on a daily basis, will we ever be able to unseat those who declare sovereignty over “We the People”. A sovereign individual does not blame others for issues he or she has the power to change. I must face my own hypocrisy first, a festering condition that feeds and nourishes the greater hypocrisy, before I can demand others to do the same and for the system to change.
As long as I deny responsibility for my personal contributions to the ongoing tyranny nothing is going to stop our descent into hell.
It all begins within. source
