The Race

I had this idea the other day that I want to share with everybody. The concept was that of a race like a marathon. I feel like I am writing to three different types of people out there. One is those who won't believe anything you tell them or are to afraid to believe (hopefully they don't have children) because their inaction and disbelief might come back to haunt them. The second group I call the Choir (preaching to the choir), these people have an idea of whats going on and are starting to tune in to the truth or as wittgenstein would say "true enough". So my focus is on the middle group, the group who don't know that a race is taking place. A race toward freedom or slavery. Here is my analogy: let say we are all partcipating in a race but some people don't know that the race has started they're either waiting for the gun to go off or they didn't here it go off. If you are on the team for freedom and you missed the gun then that is one less person the freedom team has to win. The equivalent to missing the gun is equal to not being aware of what is going around you and in the world and not standing up and fighting for freedom. The things that can distract you from the race are time, money, comfort, disinformation, and cohercion just to name a few. If you don't have time because of your career and work or family and entainment pursuits you may never take the time to find out what is going on all the time out of the publics eye. Foxxxx news and reality shows don't have the answers. Money is tricky, if you have a lot then maybe all is well for you and you don't care about what is going on. If you don't have a lot of money and have to raise a family then this feeds back into the time factor i.e work. Cohercion in the form of this underlying feeling of fear and threat can distract you also. If you are afraid to find this information out and take action because they might come for you then you won't take action and you will miss the gun. This is such a large issue I will have to expand on it later in the blog. But the point is that apathy and ignorance are the major detriments to our freedom, always have been.
