American citizen, you are grotesquely ignorant.
On the whole, your society exemplifies Webster’s definition of the word “oblivious”: 1) lacking remembrance, memory, or mindful attention 2) lacking active conscious knowledge or awareness.
Perhaps you aren’t completely to blame for your disgusting inability to think for yourself, act in your own self-interest and attain feelings of emotional stability or good health without the guidance of a lifelong Nanny. Your devolution has been engineered by a parasitic State that understands the need to numb and stupefy your most basic human instincts and desires. You have been helped to the point of incompetence and made an idiot by a society of simplicity and convenience.
Your food is not food, and it is served to you through a window while you sit in your automobile.
If you do not attempt to provide for yourself and those who depend on you, it is done for you.
Your friends are not friends, but faces on a screen. You likely have thousands of them but few meaningful relationships.
Sex is exploited to divert your attention. Even political news sites often include more sex stories than news.
Your political views are molded by politicians’ and media’s exploitation of emotionally-charged social issues — abortion, women’s rights, race relations, etc. — so you do not realize that you are losing rights daily.
You idolize idiots for their physical attributes or charm. When given the opportunity to obsess over their lives so you can forget that your own is unfulfilling, you are grateful.
Politicians use phrases like “right wing” or “left wing,” to make you believe in freedom of political choice, democracy and liberty. There is no such thing in this collapsing society. There is only the slavery of consumption. If you are a person who recognizes this and attempts to live a lifestyle that diminishes the State’s involvement in your affairs, you are branded a terrorist, conspiracy nut or simply crazy.
The United States is the Roman Empire, and bread and circus rules the populace. If you think this is untrue, consider how ignorant the man holding the highest political office in the Nation believes you to be. President Barack Obama was elected on a platform of lies: ending war, restoring liberty by undoing the police state and giving average Americans more paths to greatness. He now makes television appearances and insults your intelligence by singing to you about the value of further empowering the increasingly something-for-nothing college scam.
Some of you, realizing how bad things really are and how much worse they will get, have attempted to force changes and reforms. You started the Tea Party; you attended rallies and elected new politicians to change government from within. Others among you joined Occupy Wall Street and began to call for a removal of corporate and special interests in government.
The elites recognized the call for change from both groups and quickly acted — but not in your favor. They mobilized their paid for mainstream media to make you — the idiot — believe that Tea Partiers are all right-wing, racist women-haters and that all OWS activists are baby-killing, anarchist queers. After polarizing both movements with social stigma, members were easily assimilated by the Republican and Democratic establishment as useful idiots for both sides.
It is amusing that both the Tea Party and OWS agree that Federal bailouts for corporations are an abomination, and both agree that these corporate bailouts were handed out because of corporate special interests paying off and offering support to lawmakers. Members in both groups that have not been brainwashed by the establishment decry the growing police state, the corrupt medical establishment and special interest meddling in government to control every aspect of American life. Support for the establishment-hated Presidential candidate Ron Paul and his mission to destroy the Federal Reserve can also be seen by the same members of both groups.
Adbusters, the anti-establishment publication credited with sparking OWS, recently recognized the Democratic takeover of the movement, writing: “First they silenced our uprising with a media blackout… then they smashed our encampments with midnight paramilitary raids… and now they’re threatening to neutralize our insurgency with an insidious campaign of donor money and co-optation. This counter-strategy worked to kill off the Tea Party’s outrage and turn it into a puppet of the Republican Party. Will the same happen with Occupy Wall Street? Will our insurgency turn into the Democrats’ Tea Party pet?”
What if you weren’t dumb and realized that by building on common ground rather than fighting over ideological differences put forth by the media, the two groups might actually have a chance to topple the political establishment and its false left-right paradigm? That would be bad news for the powerful elite who control your money and your life and who have worked so very hard to make you stupid. If people who think they are on opposing sides of the political argument were to ever wake up en masse and realize their propagandized realities, they would rise up together and kill their masters.
The “us versus them,” you see, has nothing to do with contention between average Americans no matter what political ideologies they follow. “Us” is me, you — the idiots — and “them” is the group of elite power brokers that push and prod us through the media and fiat money that they control. They are the ones with the shiny objects; Americans love shiny objects.
