I felt like making a post to review the essentials of Freedom. Freedom is the natural state of man. Whether from g0d, the FSM, or the basic physical processes, man was born free. However, today, we find ourselves constantly battling tyrany on all fronts it seems.
What then is Tyranny, Tyranny is the work of evil men who use their innate powers not to better their own lives but to insturmentalize their fellow men, either for material gain or to satiate their lusts for power and domination. There is good power and there is evil power. Virtuous powers, like those of Superman are focused inwards, increasing one’s own virtue and mastery of one’s self and potential to do things in the world. Viscious powers are those that are directed at other people, to force others to do things or to not do things.
Modern forms of slavery dispense, for the most part, with the usual parafanalia of slavery. Three main tools of enslavement come to mind. These are, simply, desires, fears, and belief.
When the Tyrant finds out what you want, he will either threaten to take it for you or take it from you and then meter it back to you for your compliance. The things you want most are the most dangerous thing for your enemy to know. Part of that is why your personal data is such a hot commodity.
When the tyrant finds out what you fear, he will show it to you everywhere it can be found and produce it in whatever quantity is required. He will continue to menace you with your fears until you comply. You must control your fears and not let them be a tool for someone else to control you. Whenever you are threatened through fear, never “pay the pirate”, instead pay the man who defends you from the pirate.
It is the human condition that we cannot know the truth, we are only able to form beliefs, and have the choice to do our best to align them with what our senses tell us is true. True facts are incredibly powerful. The tyrant, however, wants you weak so will do everything possible to make you believe things which are false. In our corrupted society, any proposed fact with ANY political or economic ramifications must be treated with extreme sceptacism. This situation seriously sucks. There are tremmors in the force that indicate that the elite have had a cure for cancer YEARS ago, work through the implications of that. For all parctical purposes, every word written about the alleged virus is at least partially false. Work through what that means.
Anyway, these are the basic fundamentals of being a free sentient lifeform.
