I'm Now The EnemySubmitted by Robert Timsah on Wed, 04/17/2013 - 08:11
Do you consider yourself the enemy? I see no way around it. In a state of aggression, I have no choice but to consider myself an enemy of that state because I'm NOT an aggressive or violent person. It's such a perverse state of reality when a government that was created to defend our liberties is the primary destroyer of it. Continual terrorist attacks and threats are the unavoidable realities of a society that uses force against peaceful individuals, intervenes into the economy, private lives and kills people overseas.
Yet as time goes on, the unthinking, brain-dead population fails to make the proper connection to the truth. The truth that the more government does, the more enemies it creates and the more enemies it creates the more government does, and the more government does, the more enemies it creates and the more... Well, you get the idea.
Increasingly, this is becoming obvious in my debates with fellow Americans. They're my enemy and I am theirs. They seem incapable of understanding that you can do good through peace and nonviolence. I've banged my head against an imaginary wall of human degradation. It's as though the general people and their minds are now possessed by some tyrannical spirit, completely incapable of rational thought or discernment of truth. It's time I just accept the fact that I no longer support my country, and simply consider myself what I am - It's enemy.
Are you the enemy?
