I try to focus on the solutions here 99% of the time, vs. the problems. The issue though is many listeners are often frustrated by my comments like “politics no longer matter especially at the federal level.
They feel if everyone felt that way there would be no checks left on the system. To a degree they have a point, I will acknowledge this today and tell you why it still doesn’t matter.
Still others are frustrated by those they love and care about who are not willing to “wake up” and simply become just a little bit self reliant. They simply have done so themselves, they know how great it feels and they can’t understand why others will not take at least that first step. It becomes very hard to understand why so many continue to exist as dumbed down cogs in the system and can’t even fix say their own flat tire.
The truth? We are a nation of slaves! We are slaves to…
- Exceptionalism Ideology
- Class Structures
- Racial Bias
- And Above All Fear
We are a nation of slaves, slaves that have built our own prison walls, our own cells and slaves that even manage our own “work release” programs. We are slaves who not only have forged and crafted our own chains, we actually are proud of them and polish their shackles to a high shine.
This sounds insane but there are two reasons I felt it was time to do this show.
- You will never achieve your freedom unless you first acknowledge your slavery
- You will never understand why many cling to ignorance until you understand that they currently fear freedom
What I am saying really is that even though we are delving into the “problem” today we are actually still focused on the solution. Hold on and strap in this won’t be a feel good episode but in the end it still might make you feel good, I mean freedom feels good.
