If you were a Boy or Girl Scout, you recited an oath on a regular basis. If you attended public school, or one of most private schools, you recited an oath on a daily basis. By this means, you have been brainwashed.
You have been made to believe the government of the United States of America is what you serve to fulfill the commandment to love your neighbor and do your DUTY to God and country. Nothing could be further from the truth. Your parents will not tell you so. Your grandparents will not tell you so. We all have the same brainwashing in common, with the same result. Never a shortage of dutiful recruits to go around the world killing people and dying for money. Yes, for money. Both what the soldier is paid and the earnings of corporate and political war profiteers the soldier serves unknowingly.
The minute you cash your military paycheck, you are a hired gun for the banks which own the United States of America. Before you cash your corporate paycheck, you pay support to the bankers who control all government from Washington D.C. to your city council.
As long as you do not protest the use of your name for unlimited government credit to carry out the global wishes of the government owners and controllers, you support the whole fraud and send millions of innocent people to their deaths and millions more to a lifetime of needless suffering. Then you tell me you are a true patriot, serving God and country.
Not only do I refuse your patriotic lies, I report them for what they are. In our courts, ignorance of the law is no excuse. In our society, it is the best excuse, because we hold it all in common. If the corporate schools fail to teach us the difference between treason and patriotism, good and evil, it is not our fault and we have every right in a free country to call any thing whatever we like. We will call traitors patriots and patriots traitors, holding neither accountable for their patriotic or treasonous behavior because we just don't care. Which is the core lesson we have learned from 10, 12, 16, 20 years of corporate education.
Two of the lessons I learned on my elementary school playground were, you don't criticize bad behavior in a free country, because it's a free country and majority rules. Because these lies came from my peers, they were quite acceptable. No longer. When my neighbors support lies, theft and mass murder in the name of democracy, love and duty, I gag. What is the excuse for being 40, 50, 60, 70 years old and as ignorant as graduation day? Business/ busyness.
We have no time for citizen education. We are getting ahead - staying afloat, sinking in the quicksand of keeping busy, staying distracted by TV news and entertainment. We simply have no time for citizenship. Remind us when it's time to vote for more, more of all the things we want or not, whatever we are told that is. Nobody wants you to keep busy and distracted more than the parasites sucking your lifeblood - your time - your life. So it is a good thing for those parasites you don't have time to think about it.
I now have occasion to correspond with people who have taken the time to seek truth and make some shocking discoveries. They see the problems as clearly as other self educated folks, but they don't see any meaningful solutions and guess what? They are too busy to think about it but not too busy to keep writing about the problems, trying to educate others from their corporate hypnosis.
According to the U.S. Constitution, the penalty for treason is death. As we trace the treason all the way back to you and me, there will be no charges, no trials, no convictions. Just idle chatter about change because we just know, tomorrow will be like yesterday and the more things change, the more they stay the same. Let's hear it for this double minded education. We will see how same everything appears after a nuclear regime change in America. Then survivors will once again say, the world has changed today. It will never be the same. Woe are we. And we will be wise at last. There is no escaping the karma created by indifference, betraying yourself, neighbors or your family in the name of love, duty and country. Eventually justice is no longer postponed and if we are very lucky, it will be someone else's problem. "Are you feeling lucky punk; are you?"
Let us daily increase in: wisdom, love, gratitude, reverence, healing, peace, joy, happiness, laughter and prosperity.
