The un-representative, un-elected leaders of American society, including, but not limited to, Gates, Bezos, Zuckerberg, and Musk, amount to a perfect imitation of King George and the parliamentarians who long ago flooded Boston with men in Red Coats. The king’s mercenaries were ordered to take up residence wherever convenient and to keep an eye on the colonists, especially those upset by the ways and means kings keep iron grips on their kingdoms.
Today’s make-believe kings have flooded, not only Boston, but much of the world with secret recording devices, sold fraudulently as “smart speakers,” but which are used to train A.I. and to inform marketing departments and intelligence agencies what people talk about when they don’t think they are being recorded, much less eavesdropped on.
Whenever someone stops you on the street, or comes to you at home or school or work, and tells you they have come to assist you, if you aren’t alarmed, then you aren’t armed with an adequate understanding of human nature and how tyranny operates.
Although King George forced us to use them, the American War of Independence wasn’t won by the people with the best arms, it was won by the people with the best ideas and the ability to translate them into the spiritual pandemic that all the king’s horses and all the king’s men still haven’t found a cure for.
“…don’t steal, don’t lift…”
The sooner we remove fraud from the American marketplace, the sooner Americans will be restored to the degree of personal liberty they enjoyed at the end of the second world war, and which they have ceded bit by bit, digital byte by virtual bite ever since we lost faith in ourselves.
We squandered our well-deserved peace dividend when we began to act as if a free people would ever fall for the sales pitch of tyranny. Today, the only people afraid of communism/socialism are the geniuses of the Republican party, and elements of the other party who let them get away with it. No matter how dark the place one party has sunk to, the other is nearly as afraid of the sunshine of open, honest governance.
How soon after his death did we forget the brilliant admonition of President Franklin D. Roosevelt: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” We allowed the academic-military-industrial complex, built for the prosecution of one war, to transition itself into the faceless tyrant that today has its own Red Coats stationed or hidden in every country on earth.
Our accidental slide into machine-aided tyranny will continue, and we won’t resume the way of life this nation was founded upon, unless we re-dedicate ourselves to Common Sense.
Go ahead and read the pamphlet, if you’d like; Gen. Washington ordered 25,000 copies and also had it read aloud to his soldiers, since many were barely literate. But, you already know where and how common sense must be applied: don’t vote for a liar or a thief, don’t vote for anybody who would cheat a customer, contractor, agency, or spouse.
