Guest Post: Ignorance Is Bliss; So Go Back To Sleep
Submitted by Mike Krieger of A Lightning War For Liberty blog,
Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away, and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any farther obedience.
- John Locke
When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you – pull your beard, flick your face – to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humor.
- John Lennon
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Go Back to Sleep
Most of you that are taking the time to read this have already experienced some level of “waking up” over the past several years or longer. Most of you have also probably felt from time to time that the knowledge you possess is a burden and have fully appreciated the meaning of “ignorance is bliss.” I know this because I have felt these very same emotions at times. The most important thing to remember; however, is that we are just awake individuals within a wave or cycle of awakening. There were those that came before us and there will be many, many more to come after us.
Last Thursday, I was at Freedom Fest in Vegas for a brief stint and I had the honor to meet and break bread with some of the most influential minds in the Liberty Movement. As I sat there at the table at Delmonico’s, thoroughly impressed with the intellect, commitment and total sense of purpose of the people around me I became more sure than ever that TPTB don’t stand a chance. The problem for those control freak clowns is that ten years ago they had at least 95% of the American populace completely asleep. I would estimate that number at the moment to be around 75%. If I am anywhere close to being right, that means that 25% of the population is at least somewhat aware that things aren’t as they appear to be. They are asking serious questions and looking for serious answers.
Breaking it down even further, I would say that 5% of the population can be described as fully awake and somewhat committed to fully committed. This is something like 15 million Americans and is more than enough. Most importantly, once you are truly awakened you never go back to sleep. In my five years or so in this adventure I have seen the transformative process of many, many people within my personal circle of friends and contacts. Not ONE, I repeat not ONE of them has ever fallen back into the matrix mindset. It just doesn’t happen and it reminds me of quotes about truth and lies. As Mark Twain said “If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.” Then there is the counter quote from I can’t remember who that “lies require commitment.” Believe me, they are committed! That said, too much is coming out now and what TPTB are doing in the markets is desperately manipulating everything so that another wave does not wake up. There are terrified that this next wave of people will be the tipping point for their control structure. They are correct but it is coming soon to smack them in the face no matter what they do.
Obama’s Executive Orders…Connecting the Dots
While we all know about the NDAA, which Obama signed into law late last year that opens the door to the incarceration of American citizens without a trial, what is a little less known are a series of Executive Orders signed by our Noble Peace prize winning Assassinator in Chief. Of particular interest to me are Executive Order 13603, or “The National Defense Resources Preparedness,” and Executive Order 13618, “The Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions.” You don’t need to be Sherlock Holmes to get what these EO’s are all about. The first one basically gives government control of any and all resources it needs (and seemingly the ability to nullify or suspend existing private agreements) “if” there is a national emergency, while the second one does the same for communications. So essentially our wonderful government that cares about us so very much is setting the stage to take total control (natural resources and the means of communication) whenever this national emergency that they seem to be fully anticipating comes to fruition. A good summary of all the EO’s can be found here. They expect the sheeple to be in such a catatonic state of fear and shock that they will beg for daddy government to take away all their rights and ignore the Constitution so that their EBT cards work. Why else do you think the government is desperately trying to get as many Americans on food stamps as possible? See my post “The Government is Encouraging More Food Stamp Usage, Calling it “Stimulus”.
Obama Tells Americans “Your Success Wasn’t Yours”
Regular readers understand that I do not believe there is “free market capitalism” in America today. Sure there are remnants of it left, but increasingly there is simply crony capitalism in which the Federal government partners with large corporate interests to allow them to grow bigger, more powerful and importantly, more dependent on the government itself for its profits and influence. This is deliberate, just as it is a deliberate plan to get more people on food stamps. It is all about power and control. That said, there are still many small businesses and also large business owners that got to where they are through their own blood, sweat, tears as well as intellect and vision. While the 0.01% financial oligarchs and crony capitalists all over America should be exposed and called out for the traitorous parasites that they are, this should not mean we just lump all successful people into this category. Yet, this is exactly what our pathological liar President did in his most recent demonstration of verbal diarrhea. I am sure everyone has already seen this clip, but I am mentioning it nonetheless because it is so significant. He stated:
Look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there… If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.
I mean every time I think this guy can’t hit a new low he manages to achieve one within a week. No mention of the fact that a top campaign contributor to him, Jon Corzine, is a thieving crook. Nah, nothing to see here folks. Meanwhile, if you read between the lines of his little tirade (look how angry he looks in the video), it is clear what he is trying to say. You are a nobody. You are nothing without the state and without the good graces of the political elite. We own you. If the political leaders in Washington D.C. that produce absolutely nothing but hot air and then steal from you left and right say that you do not even own your own success, then indeed you own nothing. This fits in perfectly with the Executive Orders I referred to earlier. The game plan and meme here is obvious. You are cattle. The government owns your land and its resources, your success and ultimately your mind. Are we going to let them have them?
