War is Peace.
Work makes Freedom.
If you see something, say something.
Just Do It.
Slogans have been used by every king, queen, emperor, despot, religious institution and government, whether democratic or totalitarian, since the dawn of civilization. They are repeated, ad nauseam, until they sink into the collective unconsciousness and are forgotten by the majority of the people. In fact, they are a hidden weapon to be used when neccessary to elicit action from the masses, such as in times of war or social strife. In this spirit, I’m making my own slogan:
Government is Violence
Since I don’t have the funding to spread and repeat this message, I doubt it will ever really catch on, but at least it’s honest. Today’s podcast shows some ways in which the public is coerced and forced to do things we don’t want. And some people don’t react well as was evident with the Arizona shooting last week. Most people don’t care one way or the other, but there are more and more voices out there who are seeing the world for what it truly is and they are indignant, as should be their right. Helping one another is the only way to survive what is coming.
