Even when it was dusty and hot, for me, recess was far better than a classroom. We played, but it always gravitated into some form of competition, and though books were necessary, we seemed to have learned many of the most profound lessons of life there on the playground. The importance of an education falls short when you are young, and its relevance hard to comprehend. But to this day it seems that without recess, the rest of education would have held little meaning. Recess taught us how to actually use our education for real life, or indoctrination if you will, and as self worth and values were being formed, we defined what it meant to be human.
From the earliest school yard memory, some played well with others and some did not, some helped and smiled, and others cruised the playground like sharks, looking for opportunity. Some sharks just wanted your lunch money, others wanted to inflict pain, or fear, but all of it was for one primary thing, control, and that is the volition of all bullies.
We tried to the last child to figure it all out, and it seems we still do. Those kinds of lessons take a lifetime, and most will agree, it was a small minority who caused the lion's share of the problems we encountered. It seems in retrospect we could have easily had peace, if we could have just united. The liberty movement is like that too. Unfortunately, there are those who consider themselves inside the movement who want to bring back the Republican party to its original Libertarianism, and others who would like a third party, and there are scores of these. In the process they cancel each other out. And to the very delight of the Progressive movement, who promises to replace our Republic with Marxist Socialism, Liberty will just be an illusion.
If we could have stuck together for a common cause, the bully would have had no bite. They would have watched from the side lines, and always held at bay. Our constitution was designed to thwart these bullies... Yes, bullies exist, and most likely always will, and they all have one other element in common too, other than the need for power and control. They want something for nothing, and the power they seek is their ability to take it from you. Some businesses are like that, and countries too. Wouldn't you think a business who makes money on war, wouldn't promote war? Wouldn't you think a business that cures disease would also, inadvertently, promote illness? And how easy is it for the biggest kid on the playground, the biggest institution or conglomerate of companies, the most powerful government on earth, an international banking consortium, to develop the mindset of a bully? But no, most think this country is built on Christian morals and ethics. Perhaps by the end of this essay you might reevaluate that.
The art of the bully...
Feigning, or posturing, for instance, is a method used by a bully, usually backed by several lackeys. But I noted an amazing thing, and it came to define me... A fake punch felt exactly the same to both my ego and self worth, two primary things that can overcome fear. You see, if someone, or a thing, threatens you, it is considered an action, and promotes the same reaction as an actual punch. A threat is the same as the deed. When a person, a religion, a culture, an institution, thinks it is being threatened, it will react with extreme prejudice, out of self preservation. For instance, if there is the rule of Constitutional law, or an international law, both forged by blood, pain and suffering... and the dignity and value of life, and they are ignored by the bullies of this planet, government, anything goes. The old adage, all is fair in love and war, is not a Christian thought. It is a thought born of fear. A thought inspired by the threat of death, where everything you hold dear is held in the balance.... That is the sword of truth, and is the most prominent survival motivation here on earth. Kill and be killed has always displaced live and let live. It is the universal law of continued existence. Survival, without regard for anything but that, is at times without rule or moral compass. What motivation would a person have to strap bombs to their bodies and pull a rip cord? Propaganda says it is about virgins, but it is about fear, and love too. Love, twisted by hate. This is the clash of civilizations, and the catalyst to war. When a person feels compelled to sacrifice their life for a higher cause, that strength cannot be denied. If the Liberty movement had that conviction, it could not be denied.
Two years ago, Israel retaliated rogue missile attacks on their southern border by bombing the king-pin leaders in the middle of a very populated area in Gaza. Palestinians hate Zionists for a variety of reasons, buy the encroachment of settlers, restrictions of free trade, the denying of civil liberties, but most likely the fundamental reason is that children on both sides have died in the conflict. When children die, forgiveness is impossible. It is easy to say not, that the teachings of Jesus would sustain you. But when you hold your dead children in your arms, you are no longer a human being, and your mindset becomes that of an animal. Most can't comprehend this horror because reality is filtered by a wide screen black box. To most Americans, the world seems like a cartoon, and far away. It is difficult to wrap your mind around the suffering of others when you live in a gilded cage.
On that memorable afternoon, one of many, fifteen hundred people died, half of which were innocent pedestrians, and the survivors of this massacre will carry the psychological and physical scars to the day they die. That, and hatred for what they fear as oppressors and slavers, Zionists. It is estimated that about half of these deaths were indeed part of the resistance. A resistance who think of themselves as patriots. And in that dusty playground, one million two hundred thousand people live, and each of them must have known at least one of those who were killed that day. And as the children were pulled out of their charred school and lined up on the street in the middle of the fiery ciaos, pictures of the event aired all around the world. All around the world, but not in America. Only on Utube. And there, for all to see, white phosphor rained down like fire and brimstone, illegal incendiary bombs banned by international law, a sulfur mix similar to the Vietnam napalm. Illegal, with the same humanitarian concerns as poison gas. What a cosmic joke. What hypocrisy! Israel is now coming forward blasting Syria for using illegal chemical weapons, as our young men are being killed by our own weapons supplied to past allies, now our enemies, and all for the need to control their oil. All paid, even the fire bombs, with our tax dollars. In Afghanistan, CIA operatives protect poppy fields, and send tendrils into the heart of all governments who do not submit.
And we Americans are so appalled by those damned rag-head fanatics! And yes there are a few of those, for thousands of years, and now we can count ourselves among them. Tit for tat forever. Forever and ever, amen.
So how deep does this fallacy go? This hypocrisy? Homeland security just bought billions of hollow-point rounds, and why? Hollow point bullets are also banned in warfare, by the UN. No wonder why we hate those damned UN inspectors too! And those three rouge states who still resist the World Bank of Zion: Cuba, North Korea, and Iran. And how we do hate them, as taught on the black box. On average, each American has 3.5 hours of indoctrination from the box each and every day...
So what are the bullets for, if not the killing of Americans, or is it just a feign, posturing to keep us afraid? What unimaginable power to actually have the ability to print money out of thin air, and there is nothing we can do about it. Just ask the Federal Reserve, and they will tell you the same. They are beyond the law, just as emphatic as the destruction of our constitution by the Patriot Act and the NDAA. And it isn't like we weren't warned, but that these warnings were not part of the government mandated school system. Only the school yard can teach you this.
But I'm wondering... If we see now that our organization in kindergarten would have worked, why is it so hard to organize for a common cause? How do you react to a bully swishing his fist in front of our face? Like showing us the millions of caskets where we will be laid to rest if we resist, and still, most all are in denial. Hollow point bullets are not used for target practice, are illegal in warfare, but what of the depleted uranium rounds our boys are carrying and depositing on the desert playground along with the fertilizer of hate by innocent blood. Our boys are shooting through engine blocks and reinforced cement with these amazingly hard bullets, but who is considering the consequences of the future survivors of these conflicts, those who will try to build from the ashes? What is the half life of uranium, what is the half life of a human being? What are these bullets doing to the health of our boys and girls in the war theater? What is the value of a human life as found in Leviticus and Deuteronomy?
Children are being born with gross abnormalities in the Middle East, and that is viewed around the world, but not shown here in America. Not unless some real commercials could generate revenue, and the world is thinking we are monsters... Bullies without conscience, imperialists.
So now we have bible thumpers who promote the bible and a gun. The same ilk who flooded into the playground of America's west displacing the indigenous populations with disease-tainted blankets, the Winchester repeater, hunger, and a superiority complex. In Louisiana and Mississippi, my neck of the woods, we once had a group of Indians called the Choctaws. They lived on prime real estate, old growth forest, teaming hunting grounds, and a grudge. They could not forgive the killing of their children, even though the new mandated Christian Religion told them so. And when they could, they would shoot an arrow into a trespasser without remorse, and beyond the law. As reprisal they were transported, on foot, to Oklahoma. It was part of many transfers to reservations, and all traveled on a trail of tears. And do we appreciate America? Mississippi has the worst educational system in the US, with Louisiana a close second. Those forests are now clear cut, even on government land. Alcoholics and drug users in a bible-belt of dry counties, with 80 percent of the un-aborted children born out of wedlock, and almost fifty percent receiving a government check, or on the dole. Some actually think that food stamps is the real American currency. The best paying labor job in Mississippi, is a tree cutter.
Is this the reason the Jews wrote in the old testament, to kill every last person exploited and conquered? Leviticus and Deuteronomy goes into great detail as to how to treat an enemy, the very same detail Nazi Germany used on them. And that must be the real law of the west, the true law we are so uncomfortable with. So uncomfortable, because we do not want to bust the bubble that we are the good guys. That we cannot comprehend even the remote possibility that it might be us who are the true bullies of the planet, and that our enemies are manufactured by us, well, in our name anyway. But in this world, the true world, Jesus Christ is found in the black box carrying an automatic assault weapon, a woman on the silver screen will cut off the arms and legs of 300 men dressed in black with a samurai sword as our children cheer hysterically, and as 3000 babies are torn limb from limb every day, we eat poisoned food lobbied to be safe for human consumption, text while driving on units designed to be obsolete in one year, ...we live in a world where truth gets you 35, a big wanker gets more respect than intellect, where education actually challenges the status quo while history is rewritten to both manufacture and maintain compliance.
And are we enjoying this paradise we have created on the blood of others? Beautiful streets full of people speeding to the next traffic light, with cracked windows to let out the stench of tobacco, held like a precious extra widget by a perfectly manicured hand. A world, so beautiful, such a delicate gift, is being carved up without concern for the future, where GMO, and bio engineering goes unchecked, lucratively funded by private enterprise who first turned a profit by the oil-eating gene-splice of the Valdez spill. Never mind media blackouts of newly discovered flesh-eating organisms found in the sea, aluminum dust in our atmosphere, the same fluoride in our drinking water served in German concentration camps, and the amazing amount of morons roaming our streets like zombies. Zombies, who have so little imagination, they can't figure out a new dress code for three generations. Three generations that can fit into three decades, and our United States prisons who house the largest portion of their population on earth.
But there are those who do quite well, insiders who knew 9-11 was going to happen, and bet "put options" with insider-trading on United and American Airlines. Some savvy investors made fortunes on culled aborted fetuses and stem-cell research, profited from the emptied shelves of weapons and ammunition from fear of government, sixty percent profit from red light cameras who track your every move, and the NSA recordings of every phone call, every text, every e-mail, and your phone's GPS accurate to six inches of your goings and comings. Money is America's true god.
In the American garden, the honey bee is being displaced by the fly. GMOs are cross pollinating the earth, speculatively morphing into change for the sake of change, just as promised. We are so trusting, our children mandatorily vaccinated for a higher good, profit, in spite of the growing amount of autism and cancers sweeping into every family. Played, like the push of a bully on a school yard playground, they have the audacity to call a constitutionalists a traitor, a terrorist, and an anti-Zionist an anti-Semitic, and the populous are so propagandized, they would actually die to defend that, because war seems romantic, like in the film Casablanca. They would believe anything the black box spews forth, as it has since Saturday morning Solders of Fortune. We are being systematically sucked into a void of deceit, a black void so all encompassing, not even our immortal souls are safe. And if, God forbid, we cannot find the guts to push back, we will lose a lot more than our lunch money. We will lose everything, even the stuff you don't have the ability to realize. Your future, for instance, and that of your children, who will be debt slaves, and little more. And their Constitution and Bill of Rights will never be realized, or possibly even missed, as the victors of history will erase all memory.
