"It [the State] has taken on a vast mass of new duties and responsibilities; it has spread out its powers until they penetrate to every act of the citizen, however secret; it has begun to throw around its operations the high dignity and impeccability of a State religion; its agents become a separate and superior caste, with authority to bind and loose, and their thumbs in every pot. But it still remains, as it was in the beginning, the common enemy of all well-disposed, industrious and decent men." ~ H.L. Mencken
We Have the Advantage
Taking a serious look at government "wrong doing" is no easy task . . . . Not because the damning evidence is hard to find, but because the truth (once found) is very hard to swallow.
How does one reconcile the fact that we are being led into slavery (and to slaughter) by a group of pathological liars who, ironically, have been appointed to "protect us?" How does one come to grips with the fact there are still millions of Americans who believe there is a "good half" of the government and a "bad half?" . . . An intellectual twilight zone where "good" has nothing to do with the ACTIONS of elected officials and everything to do with whether or not they've dressed themselves in "blue" or "red."
As I began my journey into the bottomless pit of government tyranny and lies I was shocked to find things were MUCH worse than I had originally imagined. Even more upsetting, I came to understand that my 30 years of ignorant bliss had been carefully manufactured on an assembly line of distractions and disinformation. My ignorance had been no accident; it had literally been "by design."
After a few years of serious digging, I reached a point where I couldn't help but stand in awe at the amount of "dirt" I'd unearthed. I thought to myself "How the HELL can all of this be going on and so few know about it?" The logical answer came shortly thereafter: "It is only going on BECAUSE so few know about it."
What I had initially hoped was just a rare instance of wrongdoing, turned out to be standard operating procedure. What I hoped was just a new phenomenon (brought about under an exceedingly corrupt administration) turned out to be as old as history itself.
There before me stood the ugly truth: Politics is Power over People, "Politician" is basically a synonym for "Conman," and at the top it's criminals that run the show. The "Political System," it turns out, is really nothing more than a way for the criminals to hide and legitimize their illegitimate behavior. Is it any wonder the worst among us rise to the heights of power? . . . Is it any wonder the most talented liars seize the greatest rewards?
"But wait" you say. "The title of this piece is; We have the advantage. After seeing the enormity of the problems we face, how can you honestly believe we've got the upper hand?" Well, it's pretty simple. For a clue, let me borrow from Adolph Hitler's "Carl Rove:"
"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State." -- Dr. Joseph M. Goebbels
In short, the State has grown so greedy, so corrupt, so dangerous and belligerent, that it no longer has the power to "shield the people" from the consequences of its lies. Additionally, it has all but lost its ability to bury the mounting evidence against it. . . . Where before the state could easily silence the masses with clever manipulations like "You're giving aid and comfort to the enemy," now brave Americans are standing up and stating the obvious: "No, we're giving aid and comfort to the truth."
We must never forget that liars and thieves depend on IGNORANCE to exist among us. They lose their ability to manipulate and profit at our expense when their "tricks" and true aims are exposed. So long as we are gaining and spreading awareness, they (by default) are LOSING power.
If you think about it, the amount of time it took to build the current system of manipulation and control is truly pathetic compared to how quickly it is unraveling. More and more people are waking up every day . . . . they're leaving the mainstream media in droves; they're actually THINKING beyond the false "Left/Right" paradigm, they're seeking (AND FINDING) the truth of their own volition.
At this point, we are so awash in documented wrongdoing that nearly anyone (in just one month's time) can be shown enough to completely neutralize decades of government brainwashing. The government on the other hand enjoys no such luxury. What has taken them decades to create cannot be regained in a month a year or even a lifetime. Once a person "sees" the truth with their own eyes, the gig is up. As a result of this fact, maintaining their hold on power is mathematically impossible.
Our enemy faces an unstoppable and continuous erosion of their power. Information (specifically, the truth) is the weapon that will destroy them. They will tell us otherwise, they will pretend everything is fine and their power is secure, but like everything else they say we will know it isn't true. In the end, their time will come and they will fail. But that should come as no surprise . . . . Armed with the truth, we have the advantage. Believe it.
