We call ourselves a free people in the land of liberty – but, are we?

[Author]Dear readers, in this edition, I am introducing you a concise article about the concept of freedom, who we really are, and which directly can challenge anyone perception on whether he or she is really free. Published by The Spoonfed Truth, the following lines will make you think again, before you say that you’re truly a free man or woman.[/Author]

“Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and people who mean to be their own governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” — James Madison

“In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man; brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.” — Mark Twain

— Our anthems proudly sing the praises of this nation, and we raise our voices, wave our flags and join in song — but how many Americans realize they are not free? This is a myth perpetuated by the powers-that-be in order to avoid any major civil unrest, and to keep us all living under the thumb of a militaristic corporate Big Brother within the illusions that have been created for us.
The truth of the matter is this: what freedom has not been stolen from us, we have surrendered willingly through our silence and ignorance. As Americans, most of us have no idea how our freedoms are maintained — or lost. Don’t point to that beloved parchment, the Constitution, as a symbol of your enduring freedom. It is representative of a form of government which seemingly no longer exists in this country today.
The Constitution has been thrown out the window, the Republic shoved aside and replaced with a democracy. The thing is; most people in this country remain unaware that this is so because they simply do not know the truth — what lies beyond the myths. Your so-called government is not going to tell you, either.
Both the Constitutuion and the Declaration of Independence require that “all men are created equal” and that all “persons”, including governments, are treated equally IN EVERY RESPECT.
That means that no creation of men, including a government, can have any more authority than a single man. All ‘persons’, whether human or artificial are, in fact EQUAL in every respect, with the possible exception that artificial entities are not protected by the Bill of Rights. Any attempt to treat any government as having more power, authority, or rights than a single man, in fact, constitutes idolatry.
The source of all government power in America is The Sovereign People as individuals, who are human beings and are also called “natural persons”. Rather than being self-governing sovereigns as they were born, most people become obedient tax-paying debt slaves, not by choice, but coercion, deceit, threat and duress. Those who learn of their invisible shackles often wish to break free. Those who don’t… well… they go right along with the rest of the herd. You are told early on in life that paying taxes is your duty as an American. You are convinced that having a Social Security card is required, when it is optional, just as is paying taxes.
Men are born with free will, so why do they behave as slaves? Most in this country believe that the politicians are civil or “public” servants, while the common man is king. Most believe, because they cast a ballot to choose their “leaders,” that they are free, but the politicians among us are really the masters of a population of slaves. To paraphrase Charles de Gaulle, the politician simply poses as a servant in order to become the master.
In America today, the many are ruled by the few. The many allow this tyranny voluntarily, and with open arms. The only men who can be reduced to servitude are those who choose to do so. For men who cling to liberty with passion can never be ruled, and will never allow their freedom to be taken from them. These are men of truth and character, and sadly, they are the extreme minority. These men of integrity are now directly in the cross hairs of this oligarchy called America, and without them, the rest of society is doomed to a life of serfdom.

To obey the restrictive rules crafted by the politicians, and without resistance, is to guarantee the destruction of liberty. It is not only a fatal form of apathy, but it is also the basis for the destruction of our soul. Politicians after all, are the lowest form of man, and do not deserve respect when their aim is to rule over and control the rest of us.
For what are we if we simply do as others in power demand, without the courage to stand up for what is right? What are we if we bow our heads in fear when our fellow man is being trampled? What are we when we allow all that we have earned to be taken from us by force and say or do nothing to stop it? What have we become when the worth of a man is judged by his allegiance to the state?
