TEOTWAWKI

For a while now I've tried to resist the urge to call it a day and go underground, just trying to figure out for myself and those closest to me how best to prepare for what's to come. I honestly believe that the best and most productive way to change the world is to change myself, and I think I'm on that road, though with miles to go. I've continued to write in this blog because it's difficult to know what's coming and not say anything, but it's difficult not to feel that you're either preaching to the choir or casting pearls before swine.

I like to write so I can't say this will be my last post. I am constantly reading, constantly learning, and I enjoy sharing what I know with others. This blog has been my contribution, my effort, to try to stop and reverse what they're doing. In that endeavor I believe we have all failed, because the only way to fight an illegitimate system is to refuse to acknowledge its existence. When you go to protests, when you call your congressman, when you go to the voting booth, when you turn on your television, you acknowledge and thus empower that system. If you're fighting the system you're a slave to it; no one rules if no one obeys.

Who can deny The People no longer have a voice in this former republic? We didn't want Obamacare. They voted for it anyway. We want the government to stop spending, and stop bailing out corrupt corporations; they spend and bail out anyway. We're tired of the war we know is immoral; they have no intention of ever leaving. And they will push through the climate bill, whether by partisan vote in Congress or by executive order. They will shut down or severely limit your internet use. The police state will continue to clamp down. There is nothing you can do; if you vote the bums out the money powers will just give you two new candidates to choose from, each promising to continue the agenda (or else). Again, we've lost because we are operating within a system that, through no real fault of our own (we weren't alive when this happened), has been rigged so we can never win. But that is what's beautiful about it: all we have to do is realize the only real power they have is the power we give to them, and it ends, immediately, at the drop of a hat.

So that is my message to you. STOP. Get out of the political process. If you cannot resist the urge to vote, vote locally only, and insist that candidates resist and nullify Federal tyranny. Your local Sheriff has more authority over his jurisdiction than POTUS. And as always, the real power is with you. Asses off couches. Get up and take control of your life. Your helplessness has been deliberately engineered into your psyche. Unlearn it. Grow and raise your own food. Or starve; eat poison. Get off the power grid. Or pay astronomically high electric bills; freeze to death; die of heat stroke. Remove yourself in every way from their Matrix, and realize how little power they really have.

These are the final hours; I have no doubt about that. Even those asleep must have at least a subconscious sense of unease, like something bad is about to happen. It will be worse than they, indoctrinated with American triumphalism and exceptionalism, are capable of imagining. It may be this month or the next; six months or a year. The economy will crash, the social structure will break down, martial law will be declared. If they haven't figured this out by now, my friends they never will.

If you want to change the world, consider first changing yourself. This is a timeless, universal rule. Fellow human beings, you are my brothers and sisters. No matter where we are, no matter where we end up, I am with you.
