Familiar lies. We all live with them. These are the lies that we were brought up with. The ones that we rely on to be true in our corner of the universe. The ones that comfort us with their familiarity and social acceptance. That is, until that moment when we learn that just one of those “truths” was indeed, a lie.
Then we begin to question… everything. And that is not comforting in the least. In fact, it is the loneliest place in the world, because every comfort is fleeting – remaining only until the light of truth shines on it. Until the mere knowledge of the truth becomes the only real comfort. Until the love of truth outweighs any dalliance from reality and fleeting comfort generated from the bed of lies that encircle us and attempt to ensnare. These are the lies generated by the media machine that intend to mold us into perfect little consumer and social batteries fueling the ever-increasing beast that is our current government system.
You know the ones…
The Two Party System
The Easter Bunny
The Tooth Fairy
The Federal Reserve
Smokey the Bear
GMOs, fluoride, and toxic pesticides are good for you
Anything the government says…
There are more…. much more, and I’m sure you can add to the list. I’m learning more each day, but it takes time.
“Children should be taught to question authority. . . . Children have to be told there is bullshit coming down the road. They have to be warned that life is about detecting the bullshit and fending it off as best you can. No one told me a thing like that; I was never warned about any of this, had to find all of it out for myself. And there are still, as with you probably, a lot of things that you’re expected to believe and accept in America that I personally have a problem with, and I question a lot of these things.” (George Carlin, 2008)
With each step of faith out of the corrupt system into the truth, the closer a glimpse we get of freedom. Freedom from the tyranny and chains of lies that bind us to things that we abhor.
Lies slither out of the mouths of slippery-tongued devils saying that good is bad and bad is good, such as – GMOs are the new “green revolution,” and a sustainable farming future, while using that technology to rape and pollute the land and enslave farmers. Government thugs crack down on children’s lemonade stands, and forbid people to drink fresh milk due to manufactured “health” concerns, and those of us that see through the web of deceit watch our freedoms erode more each and every day while minions of the beast applaud it’s duplicity.
Recently Wisconsin Judge Patrick J. Fiedler ruled that we have no right to eat what we want, when we want, and no right to grow our own food.
“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;”
“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice…”
No government minion is going to successfully tell me that I cannot grow a garden and share the produce with my friends and neighbors. No one is going to successfully tell me that I cannot drink fresh milk straight from the udder to the cup. It is a matter of either obeying those who have bought the lie that these things are dangerous hook, line and sinker, or being true to what you know is the truth and simply not complying with what you know is a lie.
Freedom from tyranny begins now.
