Honest and OpenSubmitted by HenryWilliamson on Tue, 08/11/2009 - 13:03
This is the most amazing exchange on foreign policy I have ever seen.
Ron Paul is not speaking angrily and not even with a hint of condescension. This is only the most truthful attempt to honestly and openly communicate honestly and openly with Hillary Clinton. To actually engage in honest, civil discussion with a political "enemy." This clip is so amazing because Ron Paul demonstrates so clearly, the effectiveness of talking with our "enemies" in an open and honest way. He ever so subtly challenges Hillary Clinton, without a hint of aggression, to put all bullshit aside and have a real and honest discussion. In the limited time available Ron Paul successfully appeals to her reason.
Hillary is more human in this exchange than in any other memory brings to mind. It was only in the half light and only for this moment but, at the risk of sounding foolish, a risk I am more than willing to take, the sheepish Hillary Clinton woke up from hearing honest and open reason for the first time, maybe in her life.
But if the politicians are not our masters then they too, no matter what "benefits" they may be getting from their masters, are slaves. like us. just like us. They just don't believe we can fight the masters. So they join the masters. But now, here we are fighting the masters. Here in this video is Ron Paul fighting the master. Not with a protest. Not with a gun. Not with a sign. Not with an argument. Not with money. BUT with his word, with his unshakable commitment to honest and open, real communication and available for Discussion. He is living in the present moment, i.e. reality, and through sheer will brings Hillary Clinton face to face with it. When was the last time she had this experience? Possibly never.
These are not our enemies. these are our fellow slaves. They don't think it is possible to rebel against the masters actually 100% believing resistance is futile. You do it too - believe that resistance is futile if only for a fleeting moment of despair.
This peaceful revolution toward non-interventionism is possible. But its success will be directly proportional to the number of people who KNOW that resistance is NOT futile. The Pen is Mightier than the Sword. Likewise the Word. Our Word. Our commitment to open and honest, civil discussion...communication. Without further Ado:
