The Nature of Our Slavery, Part 1
It conjures to mind a raft of horrible images, from oppression of native peoples to the metallic clinking of manacles. The very idea that you would be forced to obey another person in the modern age seems ludicrous, just stories from ancient times, right?
We live in a world of high tech slavery, where cameras track our every move and secret legislation gives legal authorisation for authorities to spy on us (and even detain us) without our permission. Where legal tender (money) is based entirely on indebtedness, money created with a few keystrokes that has no intrinsic value.
Everywhere we go, we are watched, tracked and controlled. By ourselves, our peers and society. Our individuality means nothing, only our value to the collective.
Take a deep breath.
The Illuminati Isn’t the Problem, We are the Problem
Take a moment and think about it.
A system will only exist as long as there is a need for it.
In other words, this oppressive, wasteful world we live in is a reflection of our needs as people. A reflection of the way we see each other, as wild animals who need to be civilised and cultured, who, without our houses and our laws, would revert to primitive urges and attack one another. But more than that, we need to be controlled, someone needs to take the reigns of humanity and guide us because we are incapable of doing it ourselves.
That’s the sort of dangerous thinking that leads to the rise of power groups like the Illuminati , world banking cartel, Council on Foreign Relations, Builderberg, etc. All of these groups proclaim to know what it right for us, to be gatekeepers of humanity.
And all are eager to sell you a vision, of what to think and how to feel, about yourself and others. It’s a very bleak vision.
Slavery of Self
What I’m talking about is Slavery of the Self. One of the hardest things to come to terms with, is that we are not just complicit in our slavery, we demand it.
Understand that everyday, in every way, you are unconsciously giving away not only your sense of self, but also your sense of power to anyone who will take it.
The problem is that when you don’t do something, someone else will. If you don’t express yourself, someone else will do it for you. If you don’t have an aesthetic identity, there are thousands of clothing and cosmetic companies who would love to give you one. If you don’t see yourself as a star, there are hundreds of magazines that will allow you to live your life vicariously as a celebrity.
Whenever you refuse to make a decision, whenever you allow another to do so, they will dictate to you you the terms of how you will live your life. If, at this point, you have a faint awareness (an ‘aha!’ or a ‘hang on’ moment) that I am trying to do the same thing to you, then you are learning. Maybe I am. I am certainly tired of a world that revels in ignorance and for whom truth is kryptonite.
The only truth you have, is your own and if you let someone else force you to believe something, to believe that you need to be watched, and legalised and accepted by others, then you are still the gatekeeper of your own prison and you are still contributing to the human need to be controlled.
But you are also the only one who holds the keys.
In part 2, I’ll look at the Ego, arguably the root of most, if not all, of our problems in the world and explain why politics, failing educational systems, governments and religious conflict are just smoke and mirrors, symptoms, not the problem itself.
