9-minute video from Tragedy & Hope (adult language):
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.” – US Declaration of Independence
Do you admire the US Declaration of Independence ideals of unalienable rights, and early Americans having the intellectual integrity and moral courage to defend your country from dictatorial government, and refusing being used as work animals of a .01% self-declared “elite”?
Those of you with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, do you have the honor to enact that Oath here and now?
Those of you who consider yourselves responsible and educated citizens, do you respect the sacrifices of all our families through two world wars to uphold the Emperor’s New Clothes simple treaties that make current US wars Orwellian unlawful? I mean, really: can you tell us any more important law for citizens to understand than when armed attack is and is not lawful?
Have you noticed that the US government of today has destroyed almost each and every freedom that the Declaration calls “Liberty” and the US Constitution partially lists in the Bill of Rights? You’re educated and consider yourself a responsible citizen, AND HAVE YOU NOTICED that almost each and every right has been taken from you with the age-old excuse of “national security”?
Unalienable rights are from God, and granted to all humans. Living in the land of the free and the home of the brave means by definition that we uphold all peoples’ freedom, and are brave enough to defend everyone’s freedom from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
The most important freedom to defend is what the Declaration of Independence calls “Life”: freedom to not be killed by dictatorial government. The two treaties after each world war make current US armed attacks not even close to lawful. Importantly, all “reasons” given for war to Americans, our military, and the world are now disclosed by US official documents as known to be false as they were told. Of 248 armed conflicts since WW2, the US started 201 (81%), killing ~30 million human beings; more than killed by Germany in WW2.
You wouldn’t know this unless you read alternative media, because in Empires since the Roman’s, governments for the elite insiders rather than the public always control:
- Government for favorable laws, and to control military, law enforcement, and judges.
- What is used for money to enrich themselves and pay their minions.
- Media in order to propagandize the public to “cover” their crimes.
These claims require zero belief. Those of us awake simply ask what the Emperor’s New Clothes child asks the community: look for yourselves at naked crimes in literally ~100 areas. These crimes demand arrests, obviously, as the costs of these crimes centering in war and money dwarf all others:
- annual war and poverty deaths in the millions, harm to billions, and looting of trillions.
- Poverty deaths are ~one million children every month, when the investment to save their lives is less than 1% of our income, and this decreases population growth rates in every historical case.
- Literal psychopathic oligarch “leaders” (and here).
- The .01% hoard ~$30 trillion in off-shore tax havens; somewhere between ten and thirty times the amount to end all poverty on Earth forever while decreasing population growth rates.
- These .01% “leaders” keep the 99% ignorant of banking structures that maximize public benefits, debt-free money that ends national debt, return of tens of trillions taken from sheeple for “investments” in CAFRs, and full-employment for infrastructure investment.
- After our grandparents’ generation sacrificed through WW1 (.01% US “leaders” lied to US military and public for this war), our parents’ generation sacrificed through WW2, today’s “leaders” engage in the same colonial domination actions that could place our generation in WW3.
A lawful revolution is in response to government that abjectly violates its own laws, and refuses all reasonable offers to return government limits within its own constitution. It is a lawful revolution that requests its own military and law enforcement to do their jobs of arresting obvious criminal suspects in their own government.
Are you free and brave enough to stand with those of us simply pointing to Emperor’s New Clothes obvious facts of our own government slaughtering our fellow humans in unlawful, lie-began wars and poverty-murder?
Will you pass this simple test of responsible citizenship to demand arrests of obvious criminals violating the most important laws to stop government wanna-be dictators to continue killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions?
I teach history, government, and economics, and promise you that the above documented facts of two treaties after each world war are what you already learned beginning in elementary school, and finished learning in high school.
Are you free enough to verify what you already know, and brave enough to tell the simple truth of US domestic War Criminals?
If you admire the Founding Generation of Americans for standing against the tyranny of their own government, do you admire yourself enough to stand with them today under circumstances far more obvious than faced by Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and their colleagues?
The thoughts, words and actions you take are what you really are as a human being, and what you give to your children.
Be the American you’ve always wanted to be.
