Wake Up and Smell the Coffee
Dear GLP Land:
Here is an interesting little essay for your consideration. Happy reading.

There are two enduring myths that permeate American culture, which we all subscribe to in varying degrees, regardless of our religious views. They are the myth of an independent news industry consisting of diverse interests competing to bring you the truth, and the myth of our government protecting us from evil and harm.

We immediately trust certain sources of information, because we were raised to believe that they’re "credible," and we do so without question. We immediately turn to our government for protection from all danger, because we believe it’s their purpose. These beliefs are so deeply ingrained in our culture, that expressing doubt about either’s validity will result in being ostracized by many members of our society. In other words, if you insist that the entire news industry is capable of collaborating to hide the truth, or try to tell someone that the U.S. Government has murdered thousands of Americans, there’s a good chance they’ll think you’re crazy, and they’ll probably seek to avoid you.

You can hardly blame them. Your information shatters their comforting myths, and leaves them in a frightening world they’re not prepared to face. You also insult them by suggesting they’ve been fooled, and that most of what they know about current events is in fact, deceit. And they certainly don’t want to believe that the powerful protector they’ve always relied on for their safety, is now terrorizing them into submission. It’s not the kind of news that makes people happy, so if it’s possible to disbelieve you, that’s the route they’ll take. Disbelieving you will allow them to exist in the false security of their caring and protective government, confident that they’re making well-informed decisions because they read the newspaper everyday. Their "credible" source of information has already warned them about "conspiracy theorists" like you, and probably expressed hope that there will someday be a cure.

I too, would rather not believe what I know to be true. I would definitely feel happier and more secure if I believed America were fighting terrorism, and punishing the villains of 9-11. Unfortunately, I know better. For me, the myths have been exposed as fraud, and that fact has also exposed the threat we all face from our own government. Politics is not my hobby, and I would rather not think about the government at all. But what I also know to be true, is that our government can no longer be ignored, and to do so invites horrors that most Americans believe can never happen here. Anyone who is unwilling to look past what’s printed in the newspapers, is probably very dependant upon the myths for their security and happiness. The American myths share their main aspects with every other religion. Our newspapers are the givers of truth and wisdom, and our government the powerful entity that will protect us from evil, punish the bad, and reward the good. To deprive people of these myths, is to take away their gods.

The result of these myths being so widely accepted, is that too many Americans are not accepting the reality of our situation, and that fact is putting us all in danger. Many still believe change can come through elections, or that the insanity of our government can only last four more years. They’re very wrong on both counts. We’ll never have honest elections again, and our situation will only get much worse, unless the American people take action to change things. The government of the United States is robbing and killing Americans, destroying their nation, and shredding their constitution. The will be no congressman, judge or new politician coming to their rescue. There will also be no newspaper breaking the story across the headlines, so Americans will only know the truth, if other Americans educate them. In 2005, any American that ignores his government endangers himself, and the rest of this country, and any American that relies on corporate media for their information, knows very little of what’s actually happening in the world.

The truth is that today’s "credible" news sources are masterpieces in the art of deception, and they epitomize the propagandist’s skill. I’ve learned to appreciate the magic show, and I now know that the best way to make a nation’s constitution disappear, is to first distract the people with the court trial of a dancing pervert. And if I ever need to inspire hatred in my fellow countrymen for an innocent people, I only have to blow up a few buildings, and blame them for it. There’s no need to worry about the newspapers revealing the truth, and apparently, that hasn’t been a problem for a long time.

The government of the United States is not protecting you, or your freedom. Only you can do that. What they are doing is oppressing you, and they’re accomplishing this by convincing you that the world is a much more dangerous place than it is, and by making it a much more dangerous place than it need be, so they can sell you protection. Their protection is only visible as a loss of freedom, but the "credible" news sources have told you it’s necessary, so you’ll believe it, and demand it. The slightest scrutiny of their actions proves they care nothing for the people they were "elected" to represent, but still we believe they’re protecting us, because it’s a lot more comforting than believing otherwise.

I no longer enter debates about who’s responsible for the attacks of September 11, 2001. If by this time, you haven’t looked at the evidence and arrived at the only sensible conclusion it supports, you simply don’t want to know the truth, because you’re afraid of it. You’ll defy science, and create ridiculous arguments to deny what’s obvious, and you’ll carry on hating innocent people, because it’s easier than shunning society, and its ridiculous, but powerful myths.

The heros of today are the modern town criers and pamphleteers; the people who hand out the flyers, and disseminate the information necessary to educate their fellow Americans, regardless of whether or not they want to hear it. They’re operating web-sites, printing flyers, burning CD’s, and whatever else needs to be done to inform a nation that’s been kept in the dark by a government-controlled "news" industry. These people are nothing less than the saviors of America, and they’re doing more to protect you than you’ll ever know. The American military fights for oil. The fight for freedom and justice is once again in the hands of the American citizens.

I’m not a "bleeding-hear liberal." I’m a patriotic American, and I have absolutely no problem with someone who wants to kill the perpetrators of 9-11. They attacked America, and our president claims they’re wanted "dead or alive," so we should all help to hunt them down and "smoke ‘em out." I don’t have a problem with any of this, but I do insist that we not behave as a lynch mob. We’re Americans, so let’s start by looking at all the evidence, and not killing anybody until we’re sure of who did this. That only makes sense. Join the 9-11Truth Movement. Either you’re with us, or you’re with the terrorists. — Jolly Roger

No, I only wrote the first two sentences, silly. The rest I pasted because it is well worth reading. The short version is this: the government is up to no good and the media is lying to us about it. Is that short enough for you? If nothing else, read the last quote, by William Casey, the former director of the CIA.

BBR, I woke up to that coffee quite some time ago...and I´m very glad I did! In fact, with all the evidence to the contrary, it boggles my mind that people could still place their trust in the government and the media (which in a fascist state are essentially the same entity) Yeah People...WAKE UP!!! and then STAND UP!!!Idol1alien03

Re: Wake Up and Smell the Coffee
So maybe we wake up one at a time.

The kicker is can enough of us stay
rational to do what´s necessary, one
at a time, without the usual mob rule.

Time to learn to play a new game.

One without a ball.

Get thee hence and blog it, bittenbyreality.
