Statism in a Nutshell: From Thievery to Tyranny in Five Easy Steps

Statism Starby Gary Z McGee

“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” ~Unknown proverb

War is murder, no matter how you try to justify it. Taxation is theft, no matter how you try to codify it. Statism is tyranny, no matter how you try to rationalize it. No amount of justification, codification, and rationalization will get you off the hook for murder, thievery, and tyranny. The only solution? Stop justifying, codifying, and rationalizing murder thievery and tyranny. It can only be resolved from the ground up; never from the top down. Meaning: it begins with you. It begins by recognizing how individual thievery can become collective tyranny . . .

Yours is a police state where the number one goal is the protection of your “property.” Your police enforce the delusions of those with lots of pieces of green paper. Those green papers represent all the fish you have stolen and hung over the people’s heads as debt: an abstraction of an abstraction. Everyone “owes” you something. And both the police and the general populace, all recipients of your plunder and power, are content with the scraps of fish trickling down from your gold-plated dinner table. You eat, and you eat well. What does it matter that the world is bleeding and dying at your feet? . . .

Awakened Humanity is Thankfully Breaking Free From Mass Media

TV Static
By Bernie Suarez

“I believe the gift of comfortably and seamlessly not believing mainstream media is becoming one of the secrets to living a rich and fulfilling life. Detachment from mainstream media itself is a source of energy that few even in the truth movement fail to fully contextualize…”

Anyone who is awakened to the worldwide horrors the US, ISIS and their allies are imposing on the rest of humanity knows that the thing that makes these horrors worse is the accompanying deceptive mainstream media 24/7 lies. There’s nothing worse than seeing Western mainstream media continue to portray ISIS as if they are the “enemy” of the US, while the US military and Western-backed nations like Turkey, Israel, and Saudi Arabia continue to support ISIS. As a result, the ongoing bold lies and the obnoxious propaganda is further repelling awakened humanity from mainstream media and driving a permanent wedge between the freed human mind and the entire concept of Western propaganda. The whole thing is sickening and repulsive, and I believe freedom-loving humanity is responding to this worldwide…

Who Turned Out the Lights?

By Zen Gardner

“…militarized police and swat teams indiscriminately murdering innocent civilians without consequence; the environment getting trashed by geoengineering and radiation while the media and authorities won’t even acknowledge it is happening; and all the while psychopathic fascist war mongers murder millions in their march to conquer the world under the Orwellian banner of democracy and freedom supposedly against their own completely fabricated, amorphous threat of terrorism.”

What’s with this anything goes atmosphere we’ve been swept into when it comes to governmental, economic and societal behavior?

What happened? How did this darkened, backwards world become the “new normal” everyone seems to have accepted, with nary a whimper of complaint? Where did this come from, and in what world are we now living?

It’s very much like being in a well lit room when someone waltzes in and hits the dimmer, which before you know it has been gradually turned down to almost zero visibility.

And apparently the tables were turned when the lights went out.

Our Current Dystopian Nightmare

Governments do as they please without regard for due process of law or public opinion, never mind the consequences; bankers run roughshod over nations and populations with abject impunity, extorting everything they can get and then insist they get bailed out – and are; Wall Street and corporations openly cheat, steal and manipulate with complete abandon and in plain sight with zero accountability.

What happened?…

Are you confused by the Middle East?

The Anti-Empire Report #140

By William Blum

Are you confused by the Middle East? Here are some things you should know. (But you’ll probably still be confused.)

  • “The United States, I suggest, is hostile to the Syrian government for the same reason it has been hostile to Cuba for more than half a century; and hostile to Venezuela for the past 15 years; and earlier to Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia; and to Dominican Republic, Uruguay, and Chile; and so on continuing through the world atlas and history books.”

The US, France, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, and the Gulf monarchies have all in the recent past supported al Qaeda and/or the Islamic State (ISIS) with arms, money, and/or manpower.

The first example of this was in 1979 when the United States began covert operations in Afghanistan, six months before the Russians arrived, promoting Islamic fundamentalism across the southern tier of the Soviet Union against “godless communism”. All the al-Qaeda/Taliban shit then followed…

Western “Mainstream Media” Extremism: Distortion, Fabrication and Falsification

Global Econonomic Crisis: Catastroïka and the New Imperial Police State

With the collapse of the Communist countries in the 1990’s and their conversion to capitalism, followed by the advent of neo-liberal regimes throughout most of Latin America, Asia, Europe and North America, the imperial regimes in the US and EU have established a new political spectrum, in which the standards of acceptability narrowed and the definition of adversaries expanded.

Over the past quarter century, the US and EU turned their focus from systemic adversaries (anti-capitalist and anti-imperial states and movements) to attacking capitalist regimes, which…
