For those just tuning in, earlier I responded to a comment by Texas Bear which said people don't give a f**k because they live in a bubble. If you scroll down a bit you'll see it.
Texas Bear, when you ask me to explain the similarities and differences between my and "their ACTIONS", I'm assuming you're referring to people who don't care about what's happening in our country and world. First of all, I understand your frustration with fellow citizens who don't seem to realize, let alone care about, what's going on. The obvious difference between myself and the bubble people is, I do care and this translates into action. Actions like educating myself and blogging about what I've learned, as well as contacting elected officials about the criminal conspiracy they may, or may not realize they're a part of.
I'm similar to the bubble people in that I too am a creature of comfort and habit, and sometimes would rather tend the proverbial garden instead of plowing through political garbage. But for some reason, I've always been interested in geopolitics and have taken the time to understand the world I live in. I can remember the moment I realized there's no place on earth where one can escape the long arm of tyranny. (Google earth, drone tecnology etc., has essentially eliminated the concept of privacy) At that point I felt it was my duty as a citizen to speak truth to power, irregardless of the consequences or outcome. Like I said in my previous comment, the price of freedom is total committment with no guarantee of success.
In defense of the bubble people, tyrannical leaders know we're all creatures of comfort and habit and use that against us. Science is used to study human behavior and sophisticated knowledge is used to program the sheeple. For example, I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "you can't fight city hall". Many people consciously or unconsciously believe this and the result is a passive, fatalistic bubble dweller. Planting linguistic seeds of apathy in the minds of people is half the battle for despotic leaders, and they've spent billions if not trillions doing so. But, I think it was Benjamin Franklin who said you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar, so I try to be patient with sleepwalkers. Check out these two posts on solutions, they focus on education of citizens and prosecution of tyrants.
