Chage the World or Just Ourselves?

Hello everyone. I just got done watching Zeitgeist 2, and I have a few things I would like to get off of my chest. This is going to be a long bitch session and I hope you will bear with me.

1. Our monetary system.

I am so sick of hearing about how screwed up our system is and the corruption that goes along with it, in movies and here on the forum (prison planet), yet there seems to be no one who is willing to take the necessary steps to rectify the situation. I hear all the time, how the Federal Reserve act of 1913 was unconstitutional because, per the constitution, congress does not have the authority to redistribute the responsibility of printing money to any other organization, private or public.

Well, if this is the case, then why is it that not one case has been presented to the US Supreme court on the constitutionality of said act? At least to my knowledge none have. We have thousands on the forum (prison planet) and millions across the world who are part of the freedom movement, yet there are no lawyers willing to present the most important case to the Supreme Court in our history? This brings a sickening feeling to my heart, as I am not a lawyer and have only a basic understanding of law, as it were.

This is only one of many ideas on how to fix this problem, yet this is the only one that I can think of that is 1. Legal, and 2. Something we can do as average citizens. I understand the devastation to our economy if such an event were to actually be achieved; yet the long-term benefits will severely outweigh the short-term difficulties. Not to mention that the long term consequences of doing nothing are, in a word, unacceptable.

There are those who do not live in the US, which are thinking, “This does not affect me because it is the Americans that let this happen to them." To you, I urge you to take a good long hard look at your nations own economy and I will promise you that the corruption and control is, if nothing else, equal to our own.

2. Our Energy Independence

There is a massive amount of information out there dealing with the topic of alternative energy, yet there is no massive amount of progress towards utilizing said information. Lets take a look at some of the alternatives to coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear.

A. Geothermal.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geothermal_power

Using mother earths own heat generation to power our lifestyles is not only smart, it is clean. I have not seen, though, any information as to environmental impacts due to the extraction of planetary heat, thus leaving the earth cooler. (Probably not an issue due to the shallowness of the wells drilled.)

B. Wind turbine.

Although this is a totally renewable resource, it does have its impacts on the environment. From massive amounts of land needed for a location to the more important bird killing aspects of the turbines. I do think that the amount of birds killed by a wind turbine a many, many fewer casualties than the number of animals killed in the use of oil.

C. Solar.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_energy

The technology in solar energy collection has been around for decades and should be getting amazingly better everyday. The hindrances of old solar farms should be a thing of the past now.

D. Tidal and Wave energy.

http://www.alternative-energy-news.info/technology/hydro/tidal-power/ http://www.alternative-energy-news.info/technology/hydro/wave-power/

This is a new on to me. I am not all that sure how it will work; yet it does seem like an unending supply of energy.

E. Thermal Depolymerization.

http://www.thermaldepolymerization.org/

This is a very interesting concept that no one talks about except for a few, non televised scientists. This is easily the best way to obtain independence from foriegn oil without a total and complete destruction of our nations wilderness preserves and overhaul of our livelyhoods. This needs to be given more attention.

So, there are a few of the thousands of ideas for alternative energy. Lets face the facts. The oil companies will not help change the way we live because it will affect their bottom lines, and we cannot do it with the current government operations. We must take control of our government and change the way our country operates. This is an important task because, if we control our government, WE can control the companies by removing their control of us. It is all about what do we want. And what are we willing to pay. If this were to take place, the ramifications will be loud and harsh. Our economy will be destroyed (only to be rebuilt in a manner that we want), our lives will be turned upside down (only to be rebuilt in a manner that we want), our national security will be tested time and time again (but if we ban together we can retain our freedoms).

3. Politics

I hear all the time, how the political process in the US is a farce. Well, all I have to say about that is “Who’s fault is that?”

Well, the answer is simple. It is all of our faults. We allowed the system to be altered, and in doing so, allowed the system to break. For when the power to print money shifted from the elected officials to a bank that charges interest on our own money we borrow, the elected officials, for all intents and purposes, lost all of their power. Once the elected officials lost their power, the people lost their power to control said officials. The result was an economy that has twisted the population into a slavery hybrid requiring an individual to work in order to pay for the things needed to survive. The implementation of the social security system further turned the focus away from the government by instilling a sense of provider and defender to the government causing people to not want to “bite the hand that feeds you”.

So, how do we change the broken system? Well, the answer is in the question. WE do it. WE need to become the elected officials. WE need to work toward change. We need to do, whatever is necessary to bring about the alterations to our government instead of sitting at our keyboards bitching about what they did, or didn’t do now. We all know the presidential election is a joke, so we must start at the lower level governments.

Think about it. When the time comes for a military dictatorship to be declared, what level of government is going to be most important anyway? It is going to be the town councils, the town mayors, and the sheriff departments. These are going to be the one expected to go on the streets and quell any uprising. Not the military. And if the federal government does push the military into your town, wouldn’t you want the mayor, sheriff and town council members to be on your side against the military? They are our first line of defense, and should be our first point of attack.

I do not promote crime nor violence, yet I am, with every strain of my being, promoting a revolution of epic proportions, using their own techniques against them.

Imagine if in six years, the Federal Government decides to declare martial law in the US. The State governments are asked to activate the National Guard and round up citizens. The Mayors, Police, Sheriffs, Councils, State officials and National Guard members rise up against the unlawful Federal Orders instead would send a message of undeniable unity and an end to the tyranny in place.


Thank you for bearing with me and I welcome any comments with open arms.

Dan

PS. I know that I have mentioned some of this before, so this should show how strongly I feel about it.

hey dan,

good post.Especially glad to see your discussion of alternative energy sources. I've always been a little paraniod about geothermal energy. But it has a been a really long time since did any reading on it. i think i'll check into it again.
People dont see what power, lol, the oil companies have over our government, as things are. rebuilding/or refurbishing our energy grids with, clean unlimited resources.

I still havent gotten that book yet, i hope to soon. One comment I can make on the monetary system section,at this point is this: This is probably the least likely point in history to finda lawyer willing to bring such an enflamitory issue to court. Living in the time of the patriot act, fears would inevidably be higher.

ok, thats all i've got for tonight.

I'm with you Dan, every step of the way.I, too am sick of these conspiracy-theorists who argue about this shit all night in the hallway of some houseparty, but won't stand up during election time, or better yet, stand down...

I too beleive that to change the system ,we must defy it, and remove its model principles, such as replacing money wiith the bartering system, and aborting any technology that does more harm than benefit, including war machines. Independant food supply is one other major issue for funding such a widespread revolution, but once the majority decides thats what they want to do, the rest will have a hard time stopping them. It really is, the most logical decision for the planet, and ALL of the species on it.

I mean, COME ON, WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

Ashy Timz,

Well, I am surprised to see that people are actually still checkin in here and I am glad that you chose to post a reply. I haven't written here in quite some time due to the lack of interest in what I was writing about, save for a few dedicated followers, (Rich and Sarah). That said, I plan to start writing again and I hope that you not only continue to read and reply, but spread the word about this site in order to bring about more readers and posters. The more replies I recieve, the more I want to post.

thanks again to all who read my writings,

Dan
