The Sovereign Character

Submitted by Freedomman on Tue, 02/16/2010 - 18:38

If you knew… really knew… with every fiber of your essence… that you were king or queen… that you were royalty, literally and in the truest sense of the word… if you knew this without any room for doubt... would you behave any differently when dealing with your public servants? Brent Johnson

Recently, a listener commented to me that he finally realized what it means to be sovereign. He correctly explained that sovereignty is a statement of character. A sovereign carries himself differently, with an air of power and authority about him (or her), so that all the world can see by his demeanor that he is special, he is majestic.

Denial!  I know about denial. And it is NOT a river in Egypt!!  We all know denial, but few recognize that he or she uses it as a form of protection that maintains The Lie.  “What lie?”, you may ask.  “Any lie.” I respond.  Denial is obfuscation of the facts at hand, aka, a lie.

Recently, I had occasion to view a segment of NBC’s The Tonight Show in which host Jay Leno walks around New York City asking ordinary people a series of simple and basic questions. I was stunned by the general lack of education of the respondents.

SACRAMENTO, California - October 21, 2009 - Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger today signed into law a bill that requires buyers of handgun ammunition to leave thumbprints and detailed personal information with registered ammo sellers, as well as put restrictions on online bullet sales. “Assembly Bill 962 reasonably regulates access to ammunition and improves public safety without placing undue burdens on consumers,” Schwarzenegger said in a letter explaining his decision.

While on one of my weekly drives into town, I pass the Highway Patrol
Officer with his radar gun pointed at me.... I pull up to a traffic signal with
the colorful "PHOTO ENFORCED" signs and no less than 10 cameras and
flash bulbs aimed at me....I pass through CR scanners at a Border Patrol 85
miles inside America’s border that record my vehicle plate number …. I buy a
six-pack of Sam Adams beer to take home with me and the clerk that speaks no
English points to a sign that says I must swipe my Driver's License into a
reader to "confirm my age" (I'm 51 years old, I took my business

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!

Heart of the Individual

I frequently find myself thinking about the type of person who is willing to prioritize his (or her) values to place principles before money and possessions. This is the kind of person who fights for freedom and opposes tyranny, stands for truth and exposes lies, lives and dies so that others may benefit from his struggles. This is the kind of person I am, and I often wonder what it would take to raise up more people of this character.

Man is unique in the animal kingdom in that he has the ability to create, through choice, that which he experiences. However, regardless of man’s claims to advanced technologies, there are some natural elements over which he has no control. Nevertheless, man’s ability to choose how to react to these natural elements makes him different than all other animals.
