Topic: How "self-willed" ignorance is destroying the nation and how facing the truth can heal our land and set us free.

*YOU’RE GUILTY!
Ignorantia juris non excusat

This is written for those who are seeking answers to what's going on in this world today. If you really want to find some real answers don't look to any main stream radio, TV or newspapers to find it. Yes they may tell a lot of truth but, "The best LIES told also embody the most truth".

In our journey to truth seeking, we need to understand that most people wishing to find the truth cannot find it because they blind themselves from seeing certain things or wanting to know selected key issues. It is in this avoidance of knowledge that keeps them from ever finding the answers they seek.

So with that said, stop looking in the same places and start listening to those who were not affraid to tell you certain things that you once did not want to hear.

Our time is growing short. What you don't know WILL hurt you. Learn from some issues that you have attempted to avoid now.

It is said that, “There’s no excuse for ignorance of the law”. Well, then what can be said of intentional "ignorance of the TRUTH?"

After all, isn’t truth not as equally important as law, if not, even more so? Isn’t the basis of ALL Law supposed to stem from truth? If this be the case, then what can be said about the police and others in positions of power, *who WILLFULLY BLIND THEMSELVES to the underlieing facts of a case in order "remain guiltless" so they can justify they're acts to "just do their job" which requires them to enforce moves towards a fascist state?

Since the root of the Laws are supposed to stem from truth then isn't it the police job to understand that? "Ignorance of the TRUTH is no excuse!"

I mean, what about those who were sternly warned over and over again not to get themselves or their children vaccinated, yet they wouldn’t even spend a minute researching the topic and got vaccinated?

What about the doctors, lawyers and pharmaceuticals companies that sickened or killed many already hurting people because they only allowed themselves to know “AMA approved information?”

What about those who were repeatedly told not to trust the main stream media hundreds of times yet still watch and trust? Do they have ANY IDEA what that has done to them?

What about those who were repeatedly told to just “look up” and see the chemtrails? If they ever bothered, did they even give it a second thought?

What about those who were repeatedly told or emailed youtube videos about 911 and just refused to look? Because of that, their own refusal is contributing to their own enslavement via the patriot act and other unconstitutional actions.

What about those who were repeatedly told “don’t drink the water” because there’s fluoride and other cool-AID’s in it and still drink?

What about those who contributed to, or condoned gun disarmament programs knowing full well that a disarmed nation is a slave nation?

What about those who knew these things and refused to say or do anything about it?

Yes America, continue to keep going down that same road AND you WILL get to where Nancy Pelosi wanted to go. Keep ignoring it all and YOU WILL reap the fruits from the TREE of IGNORANCE......

*

I could go on and on here, but I guess I’ve made my point. All of mankind is a hypocrite and were all guilty, to some degree of ignorance, some more so than others.

Some questions I quite often ask myself:
Why is it that we (dp'ers) tend to gravitate and even crave certain topics of info (i.e. Monsanto, 911, hemp, chemtrails, GMO’s, etc) while most American's intentionally wish to avoid these same topics or considers them a waste of time?

Some of these questions are not only down right important to the whole of humanity, but intreguing to know as well. Thus why the continued, intentional willful blindness? Is it because, "we know we are guilty, if we know things and do not act on that knowledge?" Don't people understand the importance of knowledge if we don't act? If not WHY? Why is it that only what's aired on TV important to some? Don't they ever even ask themselves why? Do they really believe that, "What you don't know can't hurt you?" Don't they understand if their not part of the solution they're part of the problem? Have they not ever heard Niemöller's saying saying, "First they came for the communist?" Have they not ever heard the words, "My people perish for lack of knowledge?"

Please forward this to anyone you feel that needs help in waking up or could just benefit by understanding the results of *willful ignorance (*WILLFUL, an ACT of the WILL).

*The good news is, there are exceptions to the rule. Search and you will find.

*This was originally filed under the title of "You're Guilty". The title was changed to help appeal to those who will only read things that tickle the ears.....

Thanks, and any input or improvements on this article are welcome. This is a work in progress and will be updated and/or revised periodically.

"Escape From Freedom" =

was the title of a book by Eric Fromm.
Freedom places responsibility on the individual, to take care of him/her self & the environs. Those who think the responsibility is too heavy, or they are not ready for it, prefer to remain 'ignorant'. This is willful, because they choose to ignore the truth.

This was said in a lightly funny way by Larken Rose at a Freedom Festival, - the video is on a DP thread = http://www.dailypaul.com/243757/larken-rose-porcfest-2012-mo...

Larken Rose said at 24:30 minutes, 2 sentences =
[[ Most of what I do can be summed up like this - I tell people "you should be free", and they tell me - "no, I should'nt". ]]

Hear the talk, you will enjoy it.

Escape From Freedom

also titled Fear of Freedom by Fromm is an excellent read to understand the psychology of why people seem to reject the responsibility of freedom.

Thanks for the link to the Larken Rose talk!

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

Seek Knowledge & Share.

Sharing increases awareness, awareness reduces ignorance.
I do not recall the sources, here are two quotes -

"Ignorance canNot stop the Truth from being true",
&
"False'hoods and errors can be many in numbers, Truth is only One".

Give thanks to your Creator, HE will bless you with more.
Thanks also to RP, MN, & DPers.

Just sitting here, thinking.

Those who refuse to see the truth, even the simplest concept of what the elite are doing to us (like Monsanto, for example), are just not looking for it. I can see that in their blank stares as I try to explain it to them. Why won't they see the truth?
They have productive jobs with decent incomes, they have nice lifestyles and their family life is good. They simply don't want to rock that boat. It has nothing to do with guilt, or even laziness, it has to do with comfort. The comfort of ignorance. That is their truth, and I'm wondering if we have the right to judge their truth. Because, for those of us who believe that we see the real truth; we only see the truth in the light of our own experiences. Some only see the truth of the corruption of government. Some only see the truth of the corruption of corporations. Some see the combined corruption and greed; the facism.
Some say only Ron Paul can save us. Some say only God can save us. Some say we must save ourselves. So, what is the real truth, and should we believe that our truth is the only truth?

"Stand up for what you believe in. Even if you stand alone."
~ Sophie Magdalena Scholl
"Let it not be said that we did nothing."
~ Ron Paul
"You must be the change you want to see in the world."
~ Mahatma Gandhi

Calling = "Attention".

+1. Calling attention to your question = "So, what is the real truth, and should we believe that our truth is the only truth? "

Questions are necessary in the learning & maturing process. This was emphasized as an important right in a post on DP, = http://www.dailypaul.com/130601#comment-2618859

Also.....

Re: Calling = "Attention".

I also wanted to place emphasis on the "types" of truth capable of being preceived by human recognition.

Spiritual/physical

1) Objective: truth perceived by the "physical senses"

2) Subjective: truth perceived by *"feelings"

Both are capable of being distorted. I have noticed that different people tend to lean to one side or the other (type 1 or 2).

With that said, I am referring to the more obvious truths out there that can be more-so accurately perceived with a little study. Such as 911, chemtrails, etc. Certain FACTS ARE UNDENIABLE here with a little study.

re "Distortion", of records of truth.

DPer, you wrote:
[[ 1) Objective: truth perceived by the "physical senses"
2) Subjective: truth perceived by *"feelings"
Both are capable of being distorted. ]]

We can say 1) as the observed, & 2) as the Unseen, inspiration.
You are right, both can be distorted, i.e. the records of both.
Those who want to mislead distort the records, i.e. lie, to mislead those who were not direct witness of events, / or the inspiration.

Re: Just sitting here, thinking.

I'm sitting here thinking about you're thinking.

Re: Why won't they see the truth? They have productive jobs with decent incomes.....

Yes, I even noticed this in people who are in the poor zone also though. So it still leaves me to say, "hummm".

Anywayz, regarding the productive job theroy, the strange thing to me is "can't they see past that point"? Can't they understand or ever heard the ole saying "What they don't know can hurt you?" Doesn't that ring a bell with em?

Well, thanks for the input. I gotta go for right now. But, while I'm out, I'll be giving it more thought and try to expand when I return.

Thanks again:)

I'm not guilty.

But I agree with you. There are many who are. When it comes to liberty and living out side the system, I walk the walk, and talk the talk, I'm not a hypocrite like most. I don't support the system. I'm not part of the system. If everyone was like me the system would have perished a long time ago.

Re: I'm not guilty.

Thanks for the response. This is a topic that I've understood for a long time but had a hard time attempting to explain it. I appreciate your response because this is a dynamic that I am really attempting to understand in much more depth.

I find it a very interesting study because so many of the problems we face are derived because of this point and no one seems to notice.

It seems that many DP'ers unconsciencly understand this, but those "that will not go there" don't.

Guilt Complex.

+1. Guilt is the natural consequence of doing wrong (sin?).
"Guilt" is a huge load, related to it are the "lessons in Forgiveness".
We were taught = "seek and you shall find".
(sometimes) There is smell of innocence in the unaware, even when they appear to be doing wrong, = e.g. "O' Lord, they do not know"- (verse#?).
Some only pretend to be unaware, because actually they ignore the truth and remain ignorant, to 'escape' the guilt (complex).
Best wishes for your in-depth study of this important subject.

Re: Guilt Complex

Thanks for the wishes. Actually this topic has been erking me since 1980, that's 32 years! I read a few books on what was going on back then and found that it was near impossible to strike up a conversation on this stuff. Just couldn't figure out WHY people always attempted to change the subject. Yeah, I knew it was quite often a negitive and all, but dang! At least today we are making some head way.

This topic is a hard one with so many facets, even now I'm not sure where I'm going with all of this? I guess the puzzling part for me still is "can't people just see how their ignorance to all these things is killing us all?" Can't they realize if their not part of the solution, their part of the problem? All's I've been asking is at least for people to look.

By the way, how about them Mets?

Attack Ignorance.

dp'er, you invited inputs above, - here is a suggestion, add 1 or 2 lines, =
"Ignorance canNot stop the Truth from being true", or
"False'hoods and errors can be many in numbers, Truth is only One".
or I could add them in a new comment - above.

Mets? pls clarify, do you mean my medicines? (]:}>

Hummm, like.....

Military Industrial Complex = Guilt Complex :) ?

Hummm summore, I had several points I was trying to make with this and it seemed like the further I got down the rabbit hole, the harder it was to explain.

I guess my main point was to illustrate how American IGNORANCE was the root cause to all the problems were in today and even STILL in this late hour many of those who are seeking answers cannot find them, because they will not look where the answer is to be found.

Just look what this has done. Because of this you know the mad men running the world were going to capitalize on the situation. In their dark minds they can't let a fun play on ignorance go to waste.

*How about them Mets?

You know, that's the SOP's for people wanting to change the subject. Just say the words *____________ and watch them go into their trance (the blank stare look).

*Chemtrails, conspiracy, vaccines, 911, etc.

*Mets = Baseball team.

Where is that twicky wabbit anywayz?

You're a good guy Najam. Thanks for your understanding and helping in the expansion of wisdom.

Announce The Truth.

+1, thank you for your attention, response and the compliment, = its very warming, encourages. pls excuse my delayed reply, & I want to say more - you are fair-minded, caring, & want to help people by making them "aware". (]:)>
I learned something here about the demons, = you said = "In their dark minds they can't let a fun play on ignorance go to waste."

Therefore its is important to banish ignorance by sharing info, =
= spread awareness, = Announce The Truth.

Mankind has a need for the daily dose of info, warning or reminder, therefore feeding them is important. MSM recognizes this - and that is why they are supplying bs 24/7. We must offer the anti-dote, =
"Man does not live by bread alone, but by every Word sent by our Creator-Lord".

If Truth is the Basis of "Just Law"

If truth is the foundation for just Law, then what can be said of law enforcement officers that enforce law, but wilfully deny attempts to know truth?*

In other words, I've attempted to wake many cops up over the years. Most I have approached, are like everyone else, they just don't want to know.....

Thus, their job IS TO KNOW. How can ANY cop justify the laws they enforce, IF they do not understand the underling FACTS.

Excerpt:
If this be the case, then what can be said about the police and others in positions of power, who WILLFULLY BLIND THEMSELVES to these facts in order "remain guiltless" so they can "just do their job" which requires them to enforce moves towards a fascist police state?

Ignorance of the TRUTH is no excuse!

***

Oh the irony. I'm writting about how people supposedly protect their conscience by self-willed ignorance and no one responds.....

In the end, we all will realize that "the price" of protecting the conscience is a much higher cost than facing up to the truth [facts].

*Truth in this sense is the "underling foundation" or the facts that gives police the right to execute the enforcement of law. Without an understanding of the basis of the action that an officer is performing, is another way to say "Don't blame me, I'm just doing my job".....

WHAT EVER THAT IS.

This is a shameless (*guiltless?) bump because it was writen for you. I hoped it could be used as a wake up tool for you to show your friends who do not "get it yet?"

I thought that trying to hit them from another angle might work?

Thoughts?

In my experience, your OP questions are

the most difficult of all to deal with. When we look at all of the warnings of history and our current awake folk, it is very tough to keep a balanced, positive view of those who consciously choose to ignore the awful acts being done by elected reps and their mercenaries. Not to mention the slave-on-slave enforcement of unjust laws.

I have to keep my own work very positive and focus a lot on the awake Liberty/Peace movement, knowing there are many good people working 24-7 in their daily lives and as activists to advance humanity from the evil mire it has been stuck in so long.

Thanks reedr3v

Have often felt that the number one reason for this self-willed ignorance has been due to people attempting to protect their conscience and/or keep it clean.....

While all along, in the back of their mind, they know that "what they don't want to know", will, in the end, hurt us all.

I have tried, REALLY TRIED, very hard to wake some of these sleepers up. Some do, some don't. But in the end, they all will.

It is these, that deserve and I have no quarms with calling them shleeple (Sleeping Sheep People, SSP).
