The above film is very empowering and inspiring and for the right reasons. It's about the only thing that is worth being patriotic about. Now, to be clear, I'm not really one for patriotism; at least not in it's current form. The idea to be loyal to made up lines on the surface of the earth is a stupid one to me. I'm loyal to the human race. I'm patriotic towards the idea that every human is entitled to certain rights for no other reason than that they are human beings. Compassion dictates this in my opinion. I believe that every individual has a right to freedom all the way up to the line that their actions infringes upon the freedoms of another. That is to say that you should have the right to do whatever you deem necessary so long as it does not infringe upon my rights to do the same. This concept is what should dictate the "laws of the land." This is the spirit that the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights were penned with. However, I believe that Patriotism is a concept that needs to be redefined. The American Heritage College Dictionary defines patriot as follows:
One who loves, supports, and defends one's country
When the U.S. was founded, times were different. At that time there was no other country created with the premise that all men were created equal and should be afforded the same rights. Now I realize that there were still slaves, and obviously they were not afforded those rights, but levels of consciousness expand as we move through time. Eventually the slaves were freed and freedom expanded. I don't want to get caught up in a discussion about consciousness unfolding to higher levels and collective consciousness and the like. My point is that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are worth defending and supporting. Maybe these documents need to be revised and spoken in a language that is more up to date, but that is all semantics and rhetoric and probably not necessary. I'm referring to the spirit of these documents. The spirit of these documents, which is the old spirit of the United States, is what is worth defending. That spirit is no longer around. It has been replaced by this:
This kind of patriotism, which is the kind prevalent in America today, is fear mongering coupled with a blind faith, newspeak, and ignorance. This is the type of patriotism that Hitler harnessed during the Holocaust. This type of patriotism is outdated, a mechanism of control, and exactly what George Orwell had in mind when he wrote 1984. It is dangerous to allow yourself to be pigeon holed along with this sentiment. This is not what the founding fathers had in mind. They were up in arms against the tyranny of the money changers, not a vague terrorist (could be you if you're not careful).
This country broke away from the ruling banks, not from England. Humanity was duped by a ruling elite with the manufactured ability to create worthless paper money. They eventually used this worthless paper money to create slaves out of this nation. This nation bled its soul out into the world. The same soul which was usurped by those who controlled the money. Globalization allowed the same ruling elite to envelop the world. Now there is a great equalization occurring in the world. The rest of the peasants of the world want whats been promised to them. We live in a world with physical rules and limited resources. Our numbers continue to expand and the resources continue to dwindle. We are globalized through technology yet still constrained by the physical rules of nature. To put it shortly, there's only so much to go around. The corporatocracy controls these natural resources and through the fed they control the contrived resource that is now digital money.
This all means that equalization is going to change our current energy intensive way of life. So what is the link between this revelation and patriotism? What does it mean to be patriotic now in a globalized world. Think about this; if it's true that 1% of the U.S.'s population owns 40 to 50% of the wealth (depending on where you get this statistic) than how does that translate globally? I'm sure the numbers probably move in the wrong direction. At any rate, if there's only so much to go around, and that is less and less as resources are depleted and our species numbers increase, than austerity begins to emerge in the United Empire of the World.
I believe that what is happening with the MENA countries is the beginning of this global revolution. The difference between the MENA countries and America is that they are largely composed of 20 somethings who are all hungry. In America we have plenty of Corn, Corn Meat, and Corn product to go around. It's empty calories but it keeps our stomachs full. A satiated and gluttonous man/woman is not going to strike or riot. A hungry man/woman on the other hand? Question is, is this movement going to move to America? Rest assured that the MSM is going to spin this story like a top...as they have been doing. Will democracy emerge in the MENA countries? Sure, the same type of democracy that services the new type of patriotism. The type that is loyal to the big money changin' banksters.
Is there a conspiracy? I don't think so. Just a bunch of tenth generation (or 20th) oligarchs who are entitled to what they perceive as theirs. They perceive the operations of the world to be theirs. What do you know about the private bankers whom own the Federal Reserve? Before you write this all off as a conspiracy why not try really comprehending what I have written about above. Can you imagine being born into a life where money was never something you had to think about? You can do whatever you want for your entire life and you never have to worry about running out of money. By the time you were 18 do you think you would be bored yet? How about 25? Now keep in mind that your family has connections and you can do ANYTHING! People like that exist. They own the Federal Reserve. What is it going to take for a revolution to happen in America? We need a revolution. One where the money changers are ousted.
I am not patriotic towards the U.S. anymore. I am patriotic to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights of the United States of America. It should apply to every individual in the world. Being patriotic used to include both....it no longer does. I'm not going to be afraid to stand behind this message and put it out into the world. Hear it! I believe it's the true sound of righteousness. Who could argue that freedom for every living individual is true righteousness? This is not a left/right political paradigm that I'm advocating. We supposedly went to Iraq to spread democracy. One would conclude, since the U.S. is the one spreading this democracy, that it would be the kind dictated by the Constitution and the Bill of rights. I think it should be obvious to anybody with a brain at this point that we went to the middle east to occupy it for oil and oil alone. Afghanistan is for the opium and strategic location. Libya is about oil. The ruling corporatocracy could care less about spreading true democracy to MENA. Don't get caught up in that web of deceit.
I'm going to begin exploring where I feel this is all headed in my coming blogs.
