don't be afraid!!!

I want to share with you all a true story that happened to me just yesterday. Commondreams.org (that would be the Democrat's version of the news) finally ran a story on NSPD-51. I was so shocked to see it that I had to read the whole thing, comments and all, all the way through. As I was reading, I started becoming more and more afraid and I totally freaked out on my family! I kid you not! I had to be reminded of everything I've been saying these last few weeks before I could see reason again. So, lest you missed it somehow, or have been reading certain versions of the news that I think for now we'll just call FearSpeak, here it is in a nutshell...

People are NOT as stupid as the media and government and other abusive authorities wish us to believe they are. Everyone, every single one of us, has the ability to look inside ourselves to know the difference between right and wrong. More and more people are doing just that rather than allowing the authorities to tell them what to do. Surely a revolution must happen, but it does not have to be the frightening militaristic one certain groups use to feed our fears. It does not have to be the Biblical armageddon other groups use to feed our fears, either. We have the power to create the change we want to happen. Each of us, all of us! Don't doubt it, because we really do.

FEAR is the real enemy, not other people. I don't care who they are or where they live or what god they pray to, people are not the enemy! It is our fear which binds us to those who wish the power to control us. But we can all be free. Every last one of us can really be free. The time is NOW! Not tomorrow, certainly not next fall when the election doesn't happen. We can be free of oppression. We can be free from those who seek to abuse us, who seek to control us, tell us what to do, how to act, and even what to believe. We all have it inside us, a guiding voice, an intuition, and that is all we need. We simply need to recognize that we deserve autonomy, the chance to make our own decisions for ourselves. People are not bad inside, we have been brainwashed to believe that's true, but it's not. People only choose to do harm to other people when they have never been allowed the chance to make their own decisions and are afraid to trust in themselves, to listen to their hearts to lead them.

Anarchy isn't like you'd see in some big scary post-apocalyptic movie, it's about freedom! How can we ever be free if we continue to allow them to tell us what to do, rather than looking inside our hearts for the answers? How can we not be free, once we realize that the power to change things is with us, inside us, already? The people really do have the power, it's not just a cool song or a speech by someone who was murdered long ago by those who were afraid. We can create the change we want. But we must not be afraid. We must believe we can change things. We must believe in ourselves, and in our fellow people. It's all about freedom, and it can be reality. We have it in our grasp already. Look inside your heart, the answers are already there.

Who is the "they" to whom you refer, and are they people too or aliens? Or machines? How would you separate them from the people who are being controlled? Where do you draw the line?

What is NSPD-51 anyway? Is that the Presidential thingamabob that puts the president in charge?

stacy said...

nspd51 is that presidential directive gives president power over all the rest of the government in case of a "catastrophic emergency"

I think the "they" you ask about would be the few who benefit (at the expense of the rest of us) from the political system that has been in existence at least since Plato eplained politics around 400bce. They are people, just like us, and they are not the enemy. The system that perpetuates the abuse and control is the enemy we should all be working together to fight.

stacy said...

or maybe "they" are simply those people who refuse to believe the system is corrupt and harmful to the people...those people who believe what they learned in school about the government being a good thing and everyone who questions its authority as being bad somehow.

Your question is quite confusing, even after going back and re-reading my post.

Totally agree about not being afraid. That's almost always rather pointless. But disagree about people being smart. I think the masses are generally dumb as boards and cannot function at all without masters. Sems to me that's the reason we don't have an anarchic political system. Seven people know what it even is.

at last count, temy, it was eight. :-P
