More of us are anarchists than we care to recognize. In addition, we are seeing forced concessions within the world's religions to new discoveries and truths that question most fundamental religious dogma and theology. Yet, such as in today's "Arab Spring" of revolutions in the Middle East, we are seeing one set of sectarian or religious rule replaced by another...and sometimes the replacement is worse than the predecessor. Why do we humans continually allow religion to be the driving force of what we fight for? Why can't it be pure reason and principles that unite and sustain our species?
The more we read history beyond the basics of schoolbooks we were programmed to read as children...the more we see the true reasons and conspiracies behind most major events of the past century. A recent review of Zionist history is one big example of how an underlying global movement to restore the State of Israel has been a major cause of the World Wars in the 20th Century. It's one thing to consider the right of a race or religion to have rights and a place/land to call their own. Its another thing to displace another race or religion to accommodate the other. Here in a nutshell are the "Middle East" conflicts that continually threaten world peace. It tears me up to consider how manipulated we all have been by "powers that be" to support such political and religious causes that should not be our obligation.
In trying to dictate terms of "democracy" and "rule of law" throughout the globe, the USA empire is quickly becoming a police state and the constitution has been unraveling for decades now. While a true "republic" protects the rights of the most extreme minority among them, our USA republic is quickly becoming a house divided by itself between the haves and have nots. The political battle lines are no longer built on traditional platforms or constitutional principles, but rather on extreme positions between capitalism and socialism...or something worse. There is no balance anymore. Extremists continue to rule over the masses of "centrists". Independents are growing in number, but I would argue are becoming isolated from power. The power and money is in the hands of the extremists...both right and left. You see that every election cycle in the drive to raise money behind the puppet leadership of the day.
This is not only happening in the USA. Much of the world is now in the hands of leaders manipulating through media, armed forces and rewrites of history to appease and/or control the masses. We the masses continue supporting, voting and paying duty to our governments...who then use our own resources to contain and restrain us from exercising our freedoms. They get the guns...we don't. They redistribute the food and goods WE produce for their own gains. These leaders isolate themselves from "the people" and build real or virtual fences around themselves from the realities of those they supposedly serve. The longer these people are in power, the more extreme and controlling they become. CORRUPT!
Unfortunately one can now argue that there is a huge global conspiracy among many of these leaders to maintain "status quo" or fulfill the desires of an elite few. It is trying to know who these elite few really are that is the disturbing mission of the discerning citizen. Most of us realize at some level we are being manipulated...but we cannot discover the true source of this. It is much like religion. We have been brought up paying duty to "God"...and we have never truly seen him...or her. Yet we believe and go to war to support these hidden powers and influences in our lives. What would happen if the world's masses got together and just said "ENOUGH! We are not fighting your wars anymore."?
Unfortunately, most of us continue to accept the "divide and conquer" mentality our institutions have raised us in. Humans need traditions and connectivity. Most of us have accepted the limits and boundaries our nations and religions have forced upon us for this "connectivity". We understand very little of difference or complexity of the human condition. Therefore, we readily take up the banner of racism and nationalism. It is in our multi generational DNA.
Yes, I know many readers will be lost, confused or disbelieving of what I am saying. Many truths are very difficult to face. But, if you have read and experienced some of the things I have the past 40+ years...you would think more "globally" about these realities also. If individuals of reason and education do not stand up for individual truth and rights soon...we will find ourselves reversing back to a modern day "dark ages" where our wills and core values were programmed out of existence. If we drink the "Koolaid" of nationalism and religion as the core of human values...we will soon find ourselves as pure pawns of nations to support THEIR agendas. The world truly could become like the fantasy story "Lord of the Rings" where the dark forces battle to snuff out the spirit of men. The only problem is there is no "Gandalf" or "Elves" to come to our rescue.
Let this be a call to "global citizenship". The world is more and more about common trade and mutual acceptance...not borders and barriers or "informational blackouts" on the internet based on what country you are in. Start thinking objectively for yourself and your family...before it is too late. The people must UNITE and conquer, or be conquered.
