Not on My Watch

Someone wrote recently in the comment section on this blog that “the time for political solutions is over.” I vehemently disagree. Unless we have the courage to say no to the police state emerging all around us, to stand up to the intimidation and speak out valiantly against it, then any talk of spiritual solutions is nothing but cowardly escapism.

We do not have the impeccability required for accessing higher, more powerful states of consciousness – levels of consciousness that could magically “make bullets stop in their tracks,” as the commenter suggested – when we don’t have the guts to say no on the physical level to the forces that oppress us.

If we passively sit by and do nothing, if we fail to speak up – to our friends who are still asleep and to our oppressors – then we are personally responsible for the destruction of human freedom and the takeover by the tyrants that is occurring. Because who has the power to stop it, except those of us who have become aware of the agenda?

We deride our friends who are still asleep, we complain about what “sheep” they are, but we are the ones with the knowledge and the responsibility to do something. If a person who is asleep lets the house burn down, it’s a tragedy. If a person who is awake lets the house burn down, it’s a travesty.

I understand the feelings of cowardice masquerading as enlightenment, because sometimes I go there myself. I don’t want to risk my life, my home, my family, but if I don’t love freedom more than life in this material form, then freedom will never be a reality for me. I will always be the victim of the bullies.

We have been born into a society that was already halfway to becoming a police state. We were conditioned since childhood to accept the things that are starting to come down. But deeper than our conditioning is our thirst to be strong and free, self-reliant and powerful within our own lives. The only kind of spiritual mastery that can ever occur for us is rooted in that inner drive for personal freedom. We can no more have one without the other than we can have ice without water.

Our passion for freedom must burn within us so strongly that it consumes every excuse we manufacture for why we must sit and hide and hope it will all blow over. Tyranny does not just blow over. Bullies don’t just disappear. They continue taking over more and more of everything until the people they bully stand up and put a stop to it.

It can be discouraging speaking our mind on these things to our friends. It can lose us friends. It can cause us to be thought of as radical and “out there.” Now the tyrants are programming people to think that anyone who criticizes the government is a terrorist, so soon speaking out to our slumbering friends will cause us to be perceived as terrorists. It could get us on watch lists.

Our love for this planet, for creating freedom for ourselves and all mankind, must be greater than our fear and loathing of all those possible consequences.  Our love for freedom must burn up our concern with what people think of us, our concern with our popularity, even our concern about winding up in a concentration camp one day.

We would be freer in a concentration camp, having stood up to the oppressors, than living quietly in our homes while the world goes to hell in a hand basket. If we do nothing, we are the enablers. If we do nothing, we are responsible for the success of the New World Order.

Freedom is an inner state of mind. You can be free in a jail cell. You cannot be free living quietly in your home bowing meekly under the velvet-gloved iron hand of the controllers.

Someday a blog entry like this could wind me up in a concentration camp. But you know what? All the good people will be there. And with our ‘tude, how long would that concentration camp last?

I recently lost two people very dear to me. There’s something about a loved one dying that presses up against the curtain that divides us from the other dimensions, the unseen worlds. I am always left with a sense of closeness to that which is on the other side, and less of a concern about the importance or power of death. I feel the ones I love still vibrant, still there and close to me, only no longer limited by the body they expressed through. I am reminded that even that thing we consider the ultimate tragedy – death – is not all that powerful. It cannot alter that which is essential, the infrastructure of our being where love and freedom reside.

And at such times, I feel greater courage to do what must be done to stop the bullies from destroying this beautiful world. I don’t think about the possible cost, because even death seems insignificant compared with the things that count, the things I care about.

The worst thing I can imagine is human freedom being completely destroyed, the machinery of the New World Order becoming completely installed, on my watch. How could I live with myself if that happened? I have to give it my all, do everything I can, unpopular though that may make me. If I don’t, I choose popularity over the freedom of the world.

I was deeply inspired tonight by a 19-minute video clip on the Alex Jones website. It rallied me around to remember these things, and I strongly recommend watching it. You can access it here.

I’m sure there are beings who want to help us make this world the paradise that surely God meant it to be. I think they help us from the unseen dimensions. But they can do nothing if we, the denizens of this world, don’t earn their assistance by doing everything we can on the physical level to speak out against tyranny and stand up to it.

Ron Paul recently said that if Americans stand by and let the TSA put their hands down our pants and irradiate us with scanners at airports, then we deserve the New World Order and all its consequences. Benjamin Franklin said that if we value security more than freedom, we deserve neither. We must dig down and find the passion to do what must be done and tell the bullies we will not be intimidated.

Alex Jones observed tonight that the recent shenanigans by Homeland Security are aimed not at keeping the majority asleep but at intimidating those of us who are awake from criticizing the government and speaking out about what’s really happening. I’ve felt that intimidation. But if I give in to it and let them stop me from exercising my God-given rights, then human freedom is lost, and I’m the one who kissed it goodbye.

    Interesting U-Turn, particularly after castigating David Icke in your previous article, for recommending to defy the system, non-collaboration, disobedience, etc. It clearly shows that we need flexibility to change, adapt, adjust our positions “on-the-fly”.
    Glad that you can do it.
    All the Best,

      No U-turns here – this is something I’ve always been saying. I suggest you re-read that David Icke article. I don’t criticize him for “defying the system, disobedience, and non-collaboration” but for how the Oneness Doctrine has infiltrated his message.

    The fact that I couldn’t agree more with your position shows that my saying “the time for political solutions is over” was taken too verbatim. But in all fairness I should have said “conventional political solutions”. And just for the record, if you knew me you’d see that I’m just as fiery as you in this regard and am an equal candidate for ending up in a concentration camp.

    You cite Ron Paul in your article, and insofar as politicians on the Federal level are concerned he has no peer in staying true to the vision of the founders. And there’s nothing that comes even close to what it’s gonna take to resuscitate that vision than restoring control of the currency to those who produce the material wealth it’s supposed to represent. This is the major battle to be waged in the TRADITIONAL political arena.

    But is it one worth fighting, given the gaping maw of conformity that even the most aware of our newly elected represeanatives fall into? Or would a wiser stance be one that, for example, emulates what they’re trying to do in Lakota Nation and other far-flung pockets of resistance with attempts at formulating their own currencies?

    The way I see it, any ground swell movement in this direction stands the best chance of making TPTB irrelevant as they wither on an ostracized vine.

      There’s a lot more that needs changed in American government than just the currency system. We need to repeal the Patriot Acts, eliminate the surveillance and spying on citizens, get rid of the party system that only allows “the chosen” to run for Congress, and a whole lot more. But the details of what needs changed are not the point of the article – rather a rebuttal to your remarks and to a position we spiritual people can too easily slip into that exalts attitude over activism.

      I strongly encourage everyone to listen to that Alex Jones video clip. It is addressed to those of us who know about the conspiracy and makes its arguments so much better than I can. My blog piece was merely meant as a prelude to people’s visiting that link. Powerful, heartfelt words, from a dedicated activist, that will clear out any cobwebs like a turbo vacuum cleaner. We all need reminders like this one of Alex’s, as it is so easy to fall asleep in our tracks.

    I definitely didn’t give enough thought to my first comment. In the book I’m writing I advocate political activism as it concerns issues like repealing the Patriot acts, which would require revealing the truth about 9/11 once and for all. But hell, the truth about LINCOLN’S assassination has never come out for the whole World to see, let alone JFK’S. Not to mention 9/11.

    Although a complete overhaul of the currency system is certainly not the ONLY needed change, it is in my opinion the most crucial one in terms of potential for making the NWO irrelevant. But we are so entrenched in an enslavement of the present one that only a total repudiation of IT and participation in alternatives should be called for by those most ardent voices for freedom.

    I want to see Alex Jones whip out his bullhorn for THIS

    I agree with you that having the courage to not comply with tyranny is key. However political solutions have not worked and will not work. It’s like trying to join or lobby the mafia in order to get them to do what we want, but significantly more difficult. It’s pure fantasy. Why would the system want to limit its power? The way is to communicate, keep vigilant, not support the current order, and allow the machine to break under its own weight and dysfunction.

    • brontebaxter said,

      That, essentially, is not doing anything but hiding away in your hole. That is exactly the kind of passivity that will allow the tyrants to assume absolute power. As someone said “All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing.”

      This blog is full of articles with practical ideas for things that can be done to bring about the downfall of the enslavers. As long as we have a Constitution, and as long as we have a Congress, it is possible for government by the people to become a reality. We must first wake up the public to the scam we are living under, then collectively destroy the party system and create a milieu in which the people can elect their own representatives to government, instead of the liars and traitors we currently are given to vote for.

      I am not going to provide Web space here for people to post their excuses for why we should sit idly by and hope that the bullies blow over, or why it’s all hopeless anyway (which other people use as their excuse). So people, save yourselves the trouble of leaving such comments, because I will not publish them on this blog. I’ve only allowed this one as a sample of the kind of excuse-making I’m talking about.

        I don’t advocate that “we should sit idly by and hope that the bullies blow over”. My point is that the state is not the solution.

    It may be true as Atomsmith says that political solutions will not work but I have decided to go back to activism, which I’d let slide to concentrate on family more, because it makes me feel better if I’m dong something, however small and insignificant in the greater world.

    When at protests sometimes people have tried to persuade the nicer police to give up that job but I think that’s wrong because if all the nicer police gave up the job we would be left with the thugs. It the same with politics. if everyone with vision for a better way of life gave up politics we would be left with the corrupt and greedy. There would be no one to stand up to them.

    Why do some who claim to be ‘spiritual’ deem to tell others how the world should work, how change can come about and who should do what and how that could make a difference? Many an active soul is numbed in many a congregation of followers! The rare independent thinker and activist can change the world…still whatever our ascension so called status! We are Here to enact our beliefs, not just talk about them, and those beliefs ‘can turn the world around’. Too many are silenced and even more immobile!
    Many of the ‘new age inspired kind’ just replaced one set of rules with an even larger dogmatic process of ‘repeat after me’ lines which kept many able bodied people thinking that things would simply change with their thoughts! Who is ‘anyone’ to take a pot shot at the souls who are born to ‘lead’ revolutions, speak out, become change makers through their actions and innovative ideas, by being members of communities of changemakers and supportive friends, who is anyone to consider their lifetime tasks this time around as less effective or valuable than others? This is the succes of mind control…’reapeat after me’ programs set up in the place of the previously seductive religions led by men.
    Those who have been encouraged to be armchair spiritual seekers, readers and circle hunters through the book clubs that have kept many from taking actions are making a choices of their own; ones which, agreeably for the dark forces prevalent, means that they are able to do their dirty work unchallenged in traditional ways, ways that charge them with responsibility and question their authority to lead, by first saying:’Cease the lies, we will NOT tolerate this any longer, we will stand here and ACT and be counted’.
    Take action of many, many kinds, it speaks louder than words in the end. The rest is ‘paralysis of analysis’ and changes nothing.

    Our government’s current course towards totalitarianism is a malignant tumor that has been nourished by our deliberate neglect and selfish indugence. Now the time has come for our generation to make its mark on the world by proving freedom is important to us. This is a clarion call for us to change our way of living and more importantly an opportunity for us to exchange that which is inferior for that which is superior – people over profit.

    I personally feel paralyzed by both my dependence on the system and seeming inability to make a difference. I do try to do my part by focusing my words into a voice of dissent to draw people’s attention to what’s going on. I fear that it is not enough though. You come from an era where MLK and the counter culture movement made an impact on facilitating change socially and with your experience in propagating the TM movement perhaps you could lend some valuable insight to the younger generation as to what contributions we can make to tip the scales in our favor.

    Much Love,

    Hi Kushta

    Yes, I have lots of ideas, and you can find them in the category of this blog called “Truth Movement.” The category tag really should have been labeled “Freedom Movement,” but at the time I wrote most of those articles, there was no freedom movement yet, just some beginning public lurches toward the truth. How different it is now!

    Maybe I’ll go in and change those tags. Anyway, you can find the articles in the category (soon, perhaps, to be renamed “Freedom Movement”) by going to the left column of this blog, scrolling down to the “category” section, then clicking on “Truth Movement” or “Freedom Movement,” whichever one it says. That will display all those articles.

    Don’t forget, when you get to the bottom of the blog page with the scroll-display of articles, to click on “Older Entries” at the very very bottom, which will allow you to continue scrolling through still more blog posts on this topic.

    Happy reading, and happy making a difference!
