The Modern Day Coliseum

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 05/04/2011 - 20:04

In ancient Rome, the government (i.e. Caesar) gave the general population free bread and circuses, in the form of “games” held at the Coliseum.  These “games” were one-sided affairs that pit fully armed and armored Roman champions against unarmed gladiator slaves.  Frequently, they would add live tigers to the bout, making it that much more certain that the slaves would be killed.

The Power of Fear

Submitted by Freedomman on Thu, 03/03/2011 - 16:04

All tyrannies, regardless of their origins, use fear to maintain their power bases.

The worst tyrannical powers have used fear to maintain order and insure that the people comply with their demands: Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini and  Mao are just a few examples. Fear has also been used by “benevolent” groups such as religious organizations to maintain control, but I will save that discussion for another time.

Government Paranoia

In his brilliant and well-circulated essay, Common Sense, Revolutionary Founding Father Thomas Paine wrote, “government at its best (i.e. when it is doing everything right and nothing wrong), is a necessary evil.”

In other words if like me, you view government from the Thomas Paine school of thought, then governments - all governments - are inherently evil.  This means that government is never your friend and only your ally when its own evil objectives benefit from the alliance.

Couple this characterization of government with the growing paranoia being displayed by numerous governments around the world, and what you get is a very chilling image of the future.  I for one find it to be very frightening, indeed!

The Escort and the Mini-Gun

Stumbling around on the internet, I ran into an alarming, albeit short, video, that sat me back on my heels. It took me only a few moments to realize that while touted as this great patriotic "thing", this was just one more example of exactly how far down the tubes we as a people had fallen under a demonic spell. At this point I suggest you go watch the video, and read the very short article. Then you'll have some idea of what I mean here, about this mini, the “savior” of the Prez....

Pearl Harbor Remembered

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 12/08/2010 - 15:35

I tried watching the news this morning, and nary a word was said about this being Dec. 7--- Pearl Harbor Day... zero, zip, nada...and now I hear the kiddos say they are not taught that World War II was ever fought, nor Korea, nor Nam... a few sparse words about World War I, maybe... but, plenty of stuff on how Johnny has two mamas, and more ruinous to the country teachings, but nothing on how it actually faced adversity time after time and still pulled through...this is disgusting.

Becoming the Lie

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 11/10/2010 - 15:07

Once upon a time lying was unacceptable; it was simply not allowed. Those who lied were branded as untrustworthy. They were shunned in business and social circles. Lying was neither condoned nor ignored.

However, the voice of truth seems to have been silenced among the people. How else can you explain modern society’s acceptance of lies as a natural part of life? Lies are accepted as truth in every aspect of our culture. Lies are told between family members, government and citizen, clergy and parishioner, and no one seems to care.

Breeding a Generation of Sociopaths

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 10/27/2010 - 20:00

Our Republic, the united States of America, was founded on a system of principles in which all Rights and Laws come from God, and established against a background of moral standards by which individual citizens could measure their behavior as well as the actions of others.

This social paradigm, based on a scripturally defined system of moral standards, was designed to perpetuate a society in which truth, justice and morality flourished. Our Founding Fathers considered that our country would only survive if it was populated by a just and moral people; any other situation would spell the death knell of our Republic.

I Was Born to be Free

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 09/15/2010 - 18:17

I was born to be free.

No amount of social engineering can ever abrogate this fundamental Truth; it resonates throughout every aspect of my being. It is my living sentiment and it will be my dying sentiment.  Life without freedom is no life at all.  I was born to be free.

How Do You Know That It's True?

According to one report, the Gulf of Mexico oil gusher has been capped; other reports suggest the environmental disaster is far from done. One report says that we are currently enjoying an economic recovery; another says the Depression has only just started and there is much more financial devastation coming. According to some experts, fluoride prevents tooth decay; others say fluoride hurts your teeth. It continues endlessly.

Passion: Freedom’s Secret Ingredient

Submitted by Freedomman on Tue, 07/20/2010 - 19:59

I believe we are engaged in an ongoing war on freedom, in which what is at stake is nothing less than each individual’s rights to self-determination, life, liberty, and property.

In a war, it is essential to success to accurately evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your adversaries.  I have found that where the government is concerned, its weaknesses and strengths are both represented by its mindless bureaucracy.
