Our religious books were written and sanctioned by powerful men who claimed to have the only key to the true divine story. Each version of these belief systems teach demonization of “non-believers” no matter how saintly they may be in their own belief system. Knowing what we now know about the history and criminal structure of the ruling elite, what makes us think the propaganda of 2,000 years ago was any different than today?
If we are complacent about allowing the intrusion of privacy on Americans so that we can spy on our enemies, or allow authorities to ask Hispanics for their papers at routine checkpoints, then we are inviting the very same tyranny on ourselves.
Many in the Truth-Liberty Movement understandably feel anger and hatred for the Elite who orchestrate this tyranny, but even that is a distraction. It seems to me that we should focus on changing the system that enslaves us, rather than the people who control it. Evidently, some people lump all Jews in when they scream about the dirty “deeds” of Zionists; some want to deport Mexican-American children from the country because of the criminal actions of a few illegal immigrants; and even some liberals now support preemptive wars, torture, and illegal surveillance because their brand of tyranny is now in charge.
This insanity must end.
No matter how small our numbers are, compared to the pop-culture flock, we’re infinitely more powerful because we have truth on our side. However, it seems we must now dig down deeper to discover the ultimate, impenetrable truths to reach our full potential. Gandhi made it clear that a movement is far more powerful when it expresses what it stands for, rather than screaming about what it opposes. And this is especially true if what we stand for are ultimate truths such as peace, love, liberty, and basic fairness and compassion — to live free by one simple rule: do no harm.
