I Am Outraged!Submitted by Treubig on Fri, 03/28/2014 - 07:21
I am outraged! Not that we have a money system based on debt and thievery. Not for the never ending death and destruction around the world caused by deceptive and meaningless war. Not for the consistent assaults to our liberties and freedom of the mind. Not for the intrusion into our personal lives by secret spies. Not for industry monopolies created by politicians for their own selfish purposes. All this is to be expected from government.
I am outraged that the very people, the young people, who are being sold out are not speaking out. Instead, the young people go to an overpriced college to get a general degree where there is no job and accumulate debt equivalent to a mortgage. Instead, they turn a blind eye and play a video game with the idea that the problem is too big for them to do anything about or even begin to learn where the problems are created.
Where are the protests in the streets against a system created by our parents and grandparents that has stolen our freedom and prosperity? Where are the protests in the streets condemning the debt slavery that has captured the young and unborn? Where are the protests in the streets against the aggressive acts of war? Where is the cry to be released from the clutches of government rule?
Occupy Wall Street was a start, but did not have the focus on liberty but instead focused on equality. We can be equally enslaved in a system that does not respect liberty. Liberty cannot exist in a system of equality.
I, for one, will not be willingly ignorant to what is happening around me and I will not sit back and watch quietly. I will consistently learn the history and philosophy of what it means to have liberty. I encourage everyone to do the same.
Knowledge is something that can only be taken by taking ones life. While you and I exist on this earth, the best investment we can make is an investment into our minds. There was a reason why laws were created prohibiting slaves from reading and writing. Since we can read and write, lets use these skills wisely.
Join me in the quest to increase the value of our minds. Only then can we pass these ideas to new and young minds.
