An open letter to those who would be king…

April 25, 2012 1 comment

After decades of planning, of whittling down the rights of American citizens, of watering down the constitution with twisted perversions of the law, of creating political division , of destroying the socioeconomic landscape of the republic, of dumbing down your presumed subjects and of conquering by attrition, you are now preparing to forcefully usurp the rule of law and the will of the people with an act of treason. Watching this aggression unfold and witnessing each part of your plan come together has indeed been an education. The magnitude of your audacity is stunning, almost as stunning as swallowing the bitter pill of knowing that by our lack of vigilance and action we have allowed it to come to this point. But no more.

Elitists, abandon this folly I beg you. The current system is corrupted and unsustainable, allow us to fix it, peacefully. You cannot win. You have severely miscalculated your chances of success. We on the other hand have to succeed, you have given us no choice at all. But I know that this falls on deaf ears, you intend to do it anyway don’t you? I assure you, this is the end, we have reached the tipping point and now it’s quite simply a fight to the death. You know it, we know it. We smell your fear.

We have seen the hurried efforts at crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s on the part of the Obama administration, pushing one legislative misdeed and unconstitutional executive order after another. We’ve seen your secret police buying hundreds of thousands of bullets for the guns that they intend to turn on us. We’ve watched police departments in every city blatantly and violently assault peaceful protesters in an attempt to break the spirit of this just and proper uprising. We have suffered your threats and intimidation. Endured your surveillance and invasions of privacy. We watch in amazement as a Congress that is incapable of passing a budget or of passing any meaningful legislation whatsoever somehow finds the time to recycle SOPA into CISPA. as if their life depended on it. Perverting the law to serve your ends will not save you. We will simply not obey.

We see you trying to prepare for the onslaught you know is coming and positioning yourselves to be able to launch a first strike against the pro democracy forces lining up against you. The more you push, the more we will push back. The larger our numbers and resources will grow. The better our methods will become. The more decisive our capabilities. The more allies that will flock to our side. Even the people you thought would support you due to your years of divide and conquer politicking will turn on you. Those you have presumed to be your willing cronies and lackeys will no longer stand silent in the face of your aggression. This is the way of revolutions and that is what this is. The world is waking up and is at war with you, and what plump targets you are. You have created a world of have nots who in the face of despair and desperation will want very much what you have and will come to take it and you.

The entire world has watched you employ your surrogates, the politicians and the police to oppress in a futile effort to suppress and should it continue, by this very action you will send more and more people into the streets to oppose you. You saw it in Egypt and elsewhere, you know it’s true, and yet you continue. Look around you. The Military that you have abused and used as cannon fodder for decades for your wars of profit will not support you. They are weary of strife and angry at how you have conducted yourself without honor while abusing theirs. They will be coming for you, not us.

We are literally watching the collapse of the current festering paradigm and will soon witness the birth of a better, more just world. I say this because I am certain of victory. Defeat is not an option. There is no choice now.

We can see that you intend extreme measures, a blitzkrieg, a grand charade of fear and terror, the classic misdirection of the illusionist. We will assure that the public does not fall for it. You will fail. You are outnumbered. Without us you have no one to rule and we are through being ruled by tyrants. We intend to disobey with all our hearts. You have brought us to this point both with your schemes and your lack of responsibility and insight, but it is we who will seize this moment. Those of you lucky enough to escape justice will be cast out from civilized society, pariahs, financially ruined, shelter less and on the run. You have pushed us to the brink of civil war and economic and environmental collapse , what do you think will happen to you and yours should you fail?

It is the corporation that will soon be subjected to severe oversight, scrutiny and surveillance. The realm of industry and finance that will be strictly controlled and regulated with severe punishments meted out for those who commit fraud and crime against the planet and it’s people.

You will not be allowed to slink back into the shadows as you have done in the past when your plans went awry. This time you will pay for your transgressions against the rest of humanity. You will have to answer for your war crimes, your genocides, your invasions of the privacy of your fellow citizens, your fear and hate mongering, your colonization of the weak and rape of the Earth for your personal profit, your planet killing pollution, your tampering with the food supply and so much more. It is not just the struggle against you that must be won. This is a battle for the very survival of planet Earth and for the soul of the human race. This is a battle that you cannot and must not win.

Now I’ve gone and done it.

The first time I went down to my local occupation, Occupy Nashville, I was instantly struck by the conversations there. Some of the most intelligent dialogue I had heard in decades actually, the kind you no longer hear in politics, in the media or even from your family or neighbors.

One comment stuck with me for days afterward. An older women, one who had obviously lived through the 1960′s and 1970′s expressed regrets and said she felt like she, and others of her generation, had “dropped the ball”. An obvious reference to the social protests of the time and the falling back into complacency afterwards.
With the Vietnam war over and the civil rights issues seemingly resolved  highly visible social action transformed itself into quietly working on the self and the issues in a mostly unnoticeable mode. Change has come slowly but surely. Positive things have been achieved over time on issues that matter. The environment being one of the most clearly obvious ones.
Yes, it has been a constant back and forth struggle between the powers of good and evil on this and many other issues, but imagine a world where the behavior of the governments, corporations and self serving special interests of the world had gone unchecked back then. As bad as things are now, imagine how terrible it might have been if people had not stood up for themselves and their world in such a pivotal moment in history.
We stand today at another pivotal moment. One which may well decide the fate of the people and the planet once and for all.
Positive change has been chipped away at by attrition over the years. Special interests have contrived and manipulated the system, degraded the law, usurped the American constitution and laid waste to the socioeconomic landscape in an attempt to set themselves as the a ruling elite with the rest of us indentured to them as debt slaves.
No longer content to simply colonize the resources of the third world countries of the world.  These elitists now use the vast economic power, political leverage and military might at their disposal to prey on all of the weaker nations of the world, be they enemy or friend. They rule by debt and austerity and the threat of military intervention.
Nations like Greece, Spain and Portugal are now enslaved to a New World Order who can control them and loot them as they see fit. They are firmly under the thumb of these fascists. Nations like Germany, Italy and even the United States will most likely be next.
Plans have quietly been laid over the last 60 years to conquer America by attrition.  Many of these plans have included  the same tactics  that Hitler used to take control over Germany and bring the Nazis to power. Clearly he was a role model. It has often been said that they greatly admired Mussolini’s fascist state and hoped to recreate such a model as well. Almost daily now legislation is created and passed that further restricts freedom and sends the world closer to the abyss of destruction. The blatant arrogance of the Bush, Cheney years has been replaced by the gentler, kinder arrogance of the Obama administration. Truly politicians are simply puppets of the corporations and the policy making think tanks that have secretly ruled America and much of the world for some time now. Self serving corporations and policy making think tanks that are not elected by anyone but who design and set policy for the worlds nations.
People all over the world are recognizing the danger and standing up and saying “No!” and like the woman I referenced at the beginning of this article I feel as though I “dropped the ball”, spending years doing things other than what I should have been doing which is preparing for this moment. I knew it was coming, I have no excuse and no recourse but to pick up the ball and say “No!”.
This blog and related efforts are my first efforts at entering into solidarity with the pro democracy forces at work against the monster which now faces us. I promise it will not be my last effort.
