Farm Wars

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… 

Santa Claus

Democracy

The Two Party System

The Easter Bunny

Corporate Personhood

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 own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;”

“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.

This is the revolution. It is personal. Very personal. And it starts and ends with each one of us.

Freedom from tyranny begins now.

    Hi Barbara: You’ve probably seen this but we didn’t expect a “denoument” so soon: from Food Freedom October 11 article “‘No Food Rights’ Judge quits to work for Monsanto law firm”. Considering bizarro illegality of above opinion, he probably needed the pro bono legal cover from sympathetic cronies. Clare

    Beautifully and aptly put Barb:-)
    and I agree 100%

    once I too was a well behaved non thinking sheepie, that was some 20 years ago, and now not a day passes I dont find them out in another lie.
    the opposite of Sceptical is?
    Gullible
    and we have many many Gullibles amongst us, sadly.
    if someone starts a conversation with I saw on TV that…
    I just know its going to be assbackwards and ill informed 99.9% of the time.
    bread and circuses indeed.

    LynnD That was a good reply to this article. The Mental Health Organization reported that 30% of Americans have mental health problems. “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in astate of civilization, it expects what never was and what will never be…if we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every citizen to be informed.” Thomas Jefferson

    It is my belief that something like 95% of the human race walk around Planet Earth with their heads up their butts and this is how they die—never knowing what the hell is really going on.
    13 Illuminati/banking families have been milking us for centuries. We are quite literally their “cattle” i.e. goyim. Wars are started to increase the debt and cull the herd, as well as tainting and controlling the food supply. The goal is to cull the herd to 500 million and chip the remnant. (See the Georgia Guidestones). These families and their henchmen own 80% of the world’s wealth and resouces (which they have stolen) and do nothing useful yet believe the impoverished majority are parasites and useless eaters. If our governments weren’t in the pockets of their lackeys, they would protect the people and let these “oligarchic families” twist in the wind. “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.” ~Henry Kissinger (distinguished member of our “elite” leaders).

    Someone ought to ask this stupid judge if then President Taft had “no right” to keep Pauline Wayne on the White House Lawn.(see Wikipedia; “pauline wayne”)

    I have seen Smokey the Bear.

    Thank you for this post, and thank you for being a seeker of the truth and a teller of the truth!

  11. tmack says:

    The establishment of the value of belief over fact is the goal of any social power that depends on deception. It establishes belief to over-ride facts.

    A year or so ago, I suggested you consider leaving the US because what is happening there was foreseeable in that none of it was good and the ordinary people of the United States just would not look at what was coming or how they could deal with it.

    Consider the “Occupy wall Street” idea …. it came from and was organized by a group of anti-consumer Canadians at the magazine Adbusters in Vancouver, BC in July of this year, yet, many people believe it was initially a spontaneous gathering and people like Obama and even Alex Jones are now running from behind to try to lead the protests to where they want them to go.

    Americans have been brainwashed since they educated and then honoured their “social” scientists …. the best child psychologists were hired by companies like McDonalds (and most others) to manipulate the social psyche for profit and that was so successful that lying in the US now is considered just “spin”.

    Obama is now ordering murders just like Stalin and Hitler did.

    Consider leaving.

    The Big Lie is that Corporations are people in the eyes of the state and have all the rights of real people and almost no responsibilities. Nice post, Barb!

  14. nedlud says:

    Fiedler’s getting a little notoriety from the people.

    A little stray from the subject but not too far: There is a very interesting website, filled with interesting pictures about a land and a place where bureaucracy and authority and ‘modern science know-how’ ran, predictably alas, amok. Not too different from where we are now in the USA. Where the big shots ‘in charge’ were not too different from the -uhhh- honorable? Judge Fiedler. This is the site: http://kiddofspeed.com/

    It is filled with pictures of the present day dead zone, the land surrounding Chernobyl.

    Get at a look at the future (our future) now.

    Right on the money!
    Very good article.

  16. You’re singin’ my song, Barb! Bullshit is only good for plowing under, and we’ll need a fleet of huge tractors with front-end loaders and 11 bottom plows to handle the dung heap in the District of Criminals! Get yer pitchforks! Food Freedom Forever!

  17. MOOSE says:

    RIGHT ON THE MONEY! GREAT PERSPECTIVE…. YET PEOPLE PREFER TO BELIEVE A LIE OVER TRUTH…. SEEMS THAT REQUIRES NO ACTION ON THEIR PART. I SPENT TEN YEARS+ PLUS TRYING TO WAKE PEOPLE UP BUT TO NO AVAIL. THUS THE REASON I NOW LIVE IN MONGOLIA.
