FROM FREEDOM TO FEAR: THE DIALECTIC OF CHANGE
December 6, 2008
Americans wanted change. At least…so we were told. From this to that – in whatever forms taken – Americans called for change. Crashing markets, jobs lost, homes lost, credit withdrawn, credit destroyed – and all coupled with the Patriot Act, the new homeland militaries, new and impending global wars, and the removal of privacy through technological mastery – the dialectical stage has been perfected for social chaos, which is the reality and the backbone of our change forthcoming. And true to form, the “great sacrifice” that has been called for will indeed be great.
Truth be told, the freedom we believed in has been incrementally eroded for many decades – decades nearing one century. But having been side-tracked by media and educational propaganda for 80+ years, American people experience ignorance in the mainstream, and equally they have experienced coordinated dialectical separations that are both remarkable and devastating.
Race, gender, religious, occupational, and educational splits that were politically motivated to weaken our loyalty and nationality to country and to each other, now exist to strengthen the new powers that be – powers that call for governmental dictatorship, homeland military intervention, and global economic enforcement – all to ensure the permanent division between the haves and have nots. The dialectic is about wealth – who has it, and who never will. The dialectic is about constant history – the powerful few who take from the many and rule with brute force.
We are told that we will pay to bail out corporate powers. We were not asked to help. Our money was taken and given to further grow corporate power. We have global taxes pending, and we will pay those taxes, as well. We will serve in global wars for decades to come, and our children will be disallowed higher education unless they serve upon command. We will all become part of the civilian labor forces through mandated community service, which used to be for criminals. And we will be steadfastly imprisoned by our “communities” as the right to mobility will continue to diminish. And as the new powers all stand firmly against the right to keep and bear, international and national laws will continue to disarm this country – in one way or another. And this is the change forthcoming – albeit no change whatsoever exists. History simply, tragically, repeats once again.
Let us assume that great change is upon us, although it will not be the change that the hopelessly naïve had in mind. It will not resemble ideal freedom for anyone minus the very, very few in very, very high places. It will not resemble equality, fairness, justice – nor will it allow for the brilliance of creative opinion or the balancing of power.
Change will come through terror, military might, continuing propaganda, strife, economic loss and weakness, joblessness, hunger, sickness, and all other forms of persuasive powerlessness. Change will come by force just as it always has.
Today, we are Communitarian people. We live, act, think, and believe according to community standards, which actually mean that we are truly and remarkably without opinion or options for opinion. Just as in closed and gated communities, we now live according to new law rule books assembled and published by our elected and appointed change agents. They do not govern of, for, or by the standards of the people. Dialectically, we now live according to their government of invention and intervention – the government that serves their collective powers of total collective wealth.
So, continue to turn in your great grandparents’ gold rings and watches for cash. Great sacrifice is called for when your children are hungry and your homes are foreclosed. Sign up for military service. Maybe you can serve in Afghanistan’s poppy fields or maybe right at home in the new homeland military. Maybe when something horrific once again happens in America, you can help feed and water the many, many more homeless and hopeless American people. And then think of what has been lost - what we once were and stood for as a nation. And then, remember that the change you called for was actually never, ever called for by anyone – minus your politicians and their appointees. Remember that you never, ever called for even one Executive Order, Presidential Directive, or Signing Statement. Remember that you still don’t even know what they are or how they came to be. Remember that everything that now exists was not your doing, and that you are completely, totally, and tragically without representation. You are Communitarians, and you have no idea what that means, either.

Chaos impends. All signals and Executive Orders, new military and paramilitary organizations, Acts and technologies, pandemics and super viruses, destroyed economies, mass joblessness, mandatory community service, and, of course, terrorism, point to great change forthcoming – all predicated, based upon, built upon, and necessitated by the fact that we have opted to go from freedom to fear. And one more thing, the change you hoped for didn’t pan out with the new Cabinet appointees. You will find Harvard, the Federal Reserve, the World Bank, the U.N., and, of course, the Clintons. This is not change. This is the global status quo that made the very last fragments of freedom actually illegal.
