The State Made Me Into a Tyrant?

Things I used to believe because the state told me to:

People should be kidnapped and locked in cages for victimless "crimes." For smoking, selling, buying, or having marijuana, or any other substance. I used to believe that people didnt own their own bodies and minds.

People should be sentenced to death, despite my belief that killing is wrong. How on earth can a "justice" system sentence people to death when murder/homicide/etc. is wrong? How messed up is that? Murder and killing is wrong, unless the state does it, then killing people is good. Huh? They're teaching society that killing people for doing something wrong is just?

Peace > Tyranny.

Good morning, Sunshine.

Welcome to the elite of the wakeful world. Does that sound arrogant, like I think I am "elite" like the ill-uminati? Because "elite" means select few, and I don't know why I was "selected" or why you were, but there is this very rare trait among truthers... the capacity to see their own complicity in the crimes against humanity.
I was a total tool for Pharma, pimped their poison for decades and patted myself on the back. I was well respected in my field, landed a very lucrative contract for my clinic doing clinical research... Then their poison nearly killed me, and I watched them wiggle out of any responsibility and watch as they continue to evade justice, and continue to corner the market on "healthcare" so that we are all forced to be rats in their experiments. I'll spend the rest of my life trying to expose Pharma, A sense of PERSONAL accountability drives my quest to expose the truth, my "cross" if you will, to bear. I owe my fellow humans, brainwashed, sheepish, socialist... none of it deserves what I did to them when they came to me expecting health care.
I call it "the professional blind spot" and there are a few here who suffer terribly from it. Most days, they speak eloquently for what is right, but if you bring up the topic where THEIR paycheck is involved, suddenly all complaints are "crazy conspiracy theories." You are a rare gem, even among truthers, to be able to look in the mirror, find the "enemy" there and slay that dragon.
This is what is lacking in the Limbaugh / Hannity et al "awakening." If any of these Bozos REALLY understood what the liberty movement was about, they would be showing serious signs of REMORSE for their past behavior. They are merely trying to jump on the "gravy train" so they might grab control of the engine.
Edit: Forgot to say... When I got out of management, I was the "OSHA, STAARK, and Medicare / Medicaid compliance officer. I actually had this moment one day, standing there griping at a really good employee about having water at the nurses station. It was against OSHA, but truly no risk to anyone or anything, and in the midst of my scolding her, I had this feeling I had become a Nazi...

Weren't we all "sheeple" at some point?

For almost 10 years I worked on an Air Force base in a building where guided weapons were devoloped and I was completely oblivious to the insanity of our Foreign Policy and then later, the GWOT. (Global War on Terror)

I was a network administrator employed by a MIC contractor. I watched 9/11 unfold on a huge projection screen in a conference room with about 30 other people from the Precision Strike System Program Office. Everyone just immediately wanted revenge. I remember 1 guy saying "This means war" and we all hoorahed.

When I get frustrated with people I'm working to wake-up, all I have to do in order to empathize with them is to remember what a brainwashed, blindly patriotic, debt enslaved consumer I was prior to 2008. I was completely surrounded by everything State...all the time...and yet it all seemed perfectly normal and entirely rational.

It truly amazes me how polar opposite the world REALLY is compared to the way I THOUGHT it was.. just a handful of years ago.

I do consider it a "spiritual awakening."

I look back at me like I look at a character in a novel or movie.

On Sunday, we'd often sing about the cross eyed bear. (sp?)

Only I can volunteer myself for responsible action.

Free includes debt-free!

LOL! My brother got tweaked about "Oh we like sheep."

He'd mutter under his breath "Oh no we don't" during the pause, before continuing... "have gone astray..."
