But something is terribly wrong. Our wishes are not being expressed by our governing bodies. It seems that our freedoms are eroding. The promise is the same but it has become more and more apparent that government is serving another master and not We, the People. As we awaken to this fact more discrepancies surface.
- Though securing the border from illegal immigration would be an easy task, it isn't done.
- Though 80 percent of the people want genetically modified foods at least labeled if not banned outright, they are forced down our throats.
- Though the majority of people don't want our government going to war and wasting precious treasure in foreign lands, government ignores our wishes, toppling the duly elected governments of other peoples to install compliant puppet governments, lavishing them with foreign aid while, back home, 49 million Americans go to sleep hungry each night.
- Many people sleep under cardboard in the streets when there are 24 vacant houses in the US for every homeless person.
- The food and drug regulatory bodies that lay claim to protecting us endanger us with fraudulently tested pharmaceutical drugs, hormone and pesticide laden factory farmed foods, potentially unsafe genetically modified organisms and environmental policies that destroy the natural world on which all of life depends.
- The oil and gas industries pump and sell our resources that we must buy on the world market using fracking technology that pollutes the aquifers and oceans and causes damaging earthquakes.
- The government treats the veterans who supposedly protect our freedoms like dirt.
While most of us want simple, comfortable lives, there are a few dis-eased individuals, approximately one percent, who want far more. It's no secret that those who seek positions of power possess psychopathic traits and the more psychopathic they are the higher they climb the ladder of “success.” I have no doubt that if Charles Manson had not been abused as a child, had instead been nurtured and loved, he would today be the CEO of a multinational corporation, a politician in high office, a hedge fund manager, a high ranking military officer or a banker. Instead of becoming an infamous charismatic murderer, his disease would have been conveyed into more covert and socially acceptable channels—acceptable to the other psychopaths who make the rules and run things, at least. All psychopaths suffer from psychological and emotional derangement. They are abnormal. Their pathology is organic and untreatable. Psychopaths of low intelligence lose control and usually end up in jail, but intelligent psychopaths learn to hide their derangement in order to become successful. The most dangerous of these traits are an inflated sense of self-importance, lying, paranoia, lack of compassion and an insatiable need to control. That is why they aspire to great wealth. Money is power: the power to control. Driven by paranoid delusions, the concept of enough is oblivious to a psychopath.
Once you realize that people who seek positions of power suffer from mental aberrations and emotional deficit, some of the discrepancies in our culture begin to make sense. As the great comic turned cynic George Carlan once said, “They don't care about you at all, at all, AT ALL!”
But it's even worse than that. The psychopaths in control cannot relate to the average person. In fact, they regard those of us who are normal as inferior, mere farm animals. That's right, farm animals. Like the rest of the material world, to the psychopathic aristocrats who run things, we're resources—human resources to be developed to serve their needs—milked like cows, plucked like chickens and slaughtered like pigs; we're their crop of consumer/producers, biofuel to stoke the economic engine that makes the psychopaths rich and leverages their power.
How does a farmer view his livestock?
Let's use the horse as an example. Horses like to be in open fields where they can graze and gallop and group together. They're gentle, social creatures by nature. The farmer, however, sees the horse in an opportunistic way. If the farmer can capture the horse and “break” it, he can hook it up to a harness and a plow. The farmer puts a bit in the horses mouth that hurts the horse if it doesn't obey the farmer's commands. Now the horse has to work before it is allowed to eat or associate with other horses. The horse has to plow the field, pull the harrows, the seeder and the mower and then pull the hay wagon to the barn. In this way the horse's “productivity” is maximized. The horse now produces far more than it personally needs and the farmer gets the surplus to sell or trade while the horse is locked in a dark barn until it is needed again. Though the horse could kill the farmer with one swift kick to the head, it fears the farmer and simply goes along to get along.
This doesn't necessarily make the farmer a psychopath, but he is like one in this one respect: he sees the horse's life and wishes as less important than his own, exactly the way the psychopaths in power consider the vast majority of everyday people.
Let's take our horse analogy a bit further. What if the horse had to buy its own harness, the plow, the wagon, even its horseshoes and then had to pay the farmer to shod it? What if all the animals on the farm not only had to produce everything they needed but also had to buy all of it from the farmer? What if somehow the farmer could pay the animals wages for their labor, give them something, something worthless and abstract—let's call it money—that the farmer convinced them had value and then get them use that to buy back from the farmer the same stuff they produced with their labor, stuff they need to simply survive? The farmer wouldn't need to go looking for a market for his produce and he could print the money himself and then skim off some of it to trade with another farmer or even take over his farm. Wouldn't that be the ideal situation for a farmer?
Slaves had it better than this. They were like our horse. All they had to do was work and the plantation owner was responsible for their food, their shelter and their health: a huge expense to the farmer.
With this understanding today's dilemmas aren't so confusing. We, the Farm Animals, now work for wages, some of which we must give back to the farmer for the privilege of working. We have to buy patented seeds and pesticides from the farmer, rent the land that used to be commons, buy and build our shelter to a code that increases farm profits, pay for our own medical care and buy patented medicines causing more diseases that require more patented medicines. If the food and drugs make us ill, that's good for the farmer. As long as we stay healthy enough to be reasonably productive, buy what we need to stay alive and then die soon after our productivity begins to decrease, the farmer is happy. Any extra he makes off our misery is a lucrative bonus.
Why aren't the borders controlled? If you had a farm and the fences were in such poor repair that the neighbor's cows wandered into your field, cows that you could sell at the auction, butcher for meat or milk dry, would you work hard to maintain your fences?
Veterans are just farm animals that have already served their purpose, which was to enlarge the farm or secure the farm from other psychopaths who would take it over. Laying hens that no longer lay are destined for the soup pot. A good farmer does not waste his grain feeding them. They've served their purpose and the sooner they pass on the better.
That isn't to say that being a psychopathic farmer is easy. The farmer can't let too many of his animals get hungry or they'll become restless. They'll stop being productive and begin to break things. That's why a bare minimum of social services need to be in place to keep this from happening: Food stamps, unemployment insurance, social security and welfare. This maintains the illusion of being cared for while doing little to reduce profits to the elites since it is all paid for by We, the Farm Animals, who continue to produce or by simply printing more money.
The key to making the nation-farm work is to never let us know that those in power consider us farm animals. We must be convinced that we are totally free and in charge of the farm, that the farm is there to benefit us. That is why young farm animals are taken from their families at an early age and subjected to ritual conditioning, which the farmer calls education, in state-sponsored institutions. This conditioning is then reinforced by a media culture infused with propaganda carefully designed to divert attention to trivia and obfuscate the reality of our situation.
Once you wake up and realize that you aren't even close to being in in control of your destiny and that any institution that claims to protect your freedom is most likely in place to inhibit it—like that Orwellian security camera in the grocery store that is “for your protection”—current events make perfect sense.
George Orwell almost had it right in his book 1984, but not quite. What they tell you is freedom is far worse than slavery; it's agribuisness and you're just livestock. Welcome to Freeworld Farms.
