While re reading the book “1984” I came across a terrifying parallel between their world and ours. For those of you who are not familiar with the book or movie, the nation Oceania is in a state of perpetual warfare with the other two superstates on Earth. But this isn’t a war that is to be won, it is an orchestrated conflict whose sole purpose is to control the masses.
Now with that said, take a moment and reflect on our perpetual conflict that simply cannot be won, the “War on Terrorism.” Very freighting stuff, I think Orwell was on to something.
Pleas watch. The Revolution has enter the beginning stages. The internet is our old Parisian cafes, where the initial phase of the French Revolution began.
Just a few hours ago, the whistle-blower who exposed the NSA’s PRISM spying program identified himself; his name is Edward Snowden. He is a true American Patriot, who acted with complete selflessness. No doubt, our corrupt secretive government will now go after Snowden and everything he has. Let’s take him as an example of what courage and selflessness can do. We mustn’t let this injustice go unnoticed. The Revolution will begin soon.
Do we allow our government to destroy our liberties in the name of security? Should we consent to the norm and choice our public servants between two equally and incompetent political parties? The time to dissent is now! We must dissent to the “norm” that has been created by our sickening government. They wish for all of us to be the same and hand our rights away to protect us from the next bomber or the next rogue state, in reality they create more enemies while they fill their pockets with millions! The day where our leaders believed in freedom is long gone, and re-ignition of our nation is necessary. Revolution is the only sensible option left. United we are strong, divided we are ignorant. Revolution will come, its just a matter of time. What will be the tipping point? Only time will tell.
As our nation spirals downwards towards a fascist society; is it our duty, as Americans, to rise up and recreate our government? Day after day we are threatened by our government of more wars, of a weaker economy, of more terrorism and of the loss of our liberties. Freedom is nothing but a farce in this nation, we are united only in our hatred for the ‘other’ political party. Only our government is to blame for this. They have created enemies abroad and made us enemies with one and the other domestically. They have created an illusion of choice, yet in reality every candidate is the same; greedy, destructive and dishonest. Should we stand idle by as our beloved country heads down the same road as many great nations before her? Should we give up on our belief of freedom and liberty for all? We hold the key to our own futures. We, the people, are capable of enacting change. It is up to us, to our actions and words. Revolution is no longer a matter of if, but a matter of when. Long live the revolution and long live our Constitution!
The United States of America has troops stationed in over 130 countries world wide, and maintains large military bases in 36 different countries, from Japan to Germany and everywhere in between. These simple facts forces a very simple question, is the United States a modern day Empire? Some argue that the US Military base is its own version of a colony, thus creating an America that stretches the entire globe.
Never before in history has a country have this many troops stationed in this many bases and deployments across the world. So why would someone consider it ludicrous to suggest that the US is, in fact, an Empire. Our government forces its will when and where it likes, regardless of the UN ( See Iraq War) and popular international opinion. Yet the governments of these people will bow to the US and her foreign policy plans ( See Britain) and follow her into battle. So, on top of having soldiers stationed in 130 countries, the government can easily call on dozens of different proxies to do her bidding. At this present time US non-interventionism is dead, and the grand Empire of America is alive and thrives.
An imperialist America isn’t only bad for the people of many countries in which the “American dream” was forced upon, bad it is bad for the people at home. Over the past few years trillions of dollars has been spent on maintaining foreign American might, at the same time when the government is battling its worst debt crisis in history! On another note, it also is killing our young men and women. Through imperialistic operations, thousands of Americans have died, when they plain just shouldn’t have. It also begs the question, do these operations make the home-front safer? Instead of investing trillions in foreign military operations, why don’t we simply invest in making our defenses at home more powerful and effective? Before we know it, our forces are going to run thin across the world, making us a prime target for collapse; just like the Roman Empire.
