Government and independent thought
Closing down When the human body is confronted with adverse conditions, it has an amazing way of becoming accustomed to the pain. In fact, it closes down certain facilities in order to survive. The first time I realised this was when I naively bought my first house. It was about 100 years old, a mid-terraced in an up market English suburban village, across the road from a main railway line. I checked out everything, even taking into consideration the train times. The first night I slept there, I was awakened at 2.30 am with the whole house shaking, as a very long and very heavy freight train was lumbering by. It was intolerable. But by the third night, I became accustomed to it, and was never awakened again! Almost all present day governments came into being as a result of bloody conflict. They were born out of war, and their roots lie in war. We have become accustomed to war. We have closed down our minds regarding war. 'It's not my war' – 'as long as it's in another land it does not affect me' – are the kind of comments we hear every day. As civilisation progresses, it begins to abhor war.War belongs to a comparatively low level of consciousness, not much above that of the animals from which we have evolved. As we each gradually progress along our journey towards personal enlightenment, we realise that our true mission is to help all those who are following us along the path. Furthermore, we realise that the best way to help, is to pass on the advice that we are receiving from those who have preceded us. All messages from advanced societies indicate that war is a limiting factor to planetary evolution. In order for a planet to evolve, there has to be a solid single accord that overrides all other, and while ever war exists, the achievement of this accord is not possible. So I believe that we should all throw our weight behind those campaigning for a cessation of war. If war ceases, then all the other abominations of government mismanagement will cease also. Once war is removed from the planet, then all the benefits of having a government cease to exist. With no war, we have no need to defend against each other. We can pool the world's resources into the advancement of beneficial science, and completely abandon all work on destructive technology. We no longer need armies, navies, air forces, secret services, administration and service departments for the fore-going. Feelings If we are in tune with our planet's feelings in any way, we can immediately imagine the reduction in planetary tension created by the abolishment of these departments and there tools of death. Of course that would mean that all the corporations which are so totally dependent on defence spending, would cease to be of any benefit to mankind. We discover that the problem of war is in fact - government - and the only way that war will ever cease on this planet, is when government ceases. This change of balance marks the transition point indicated by a sufficient number of humans who have gained the ability to control themselves, so that they no longer need to be controlled by others. The need for a governing body therefore becomes obsolete. The problem with the acceptance of this idea is that the collective consciousness of mankind has become so engrained with the concept of government, for so long, that any conception of a world without government is immediately ridiculed - (the first stage of the acceptance of truth.) In order to get a full perspective on this, then we could try to view government from the same viewpoint as those who finance government, being the few private banking families who control the central reserve bank of most nations. Reported quotations from these families help to put this whole idea into context. Rothschild's mother was quoted as saying 'If my sons didn't want war there would be no war'. Mayer Amschel Bauer, who founded the Rothschild family is reported as saying, 'Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws' His son, Amschel Mayer Rothschild is reported as saying, 'Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.' And another son, Nathan Mayer Rothschild is reported to have bragged, 'I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain's money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.' Waking up Now that we have an idea of how government is viewed by those who control it, the concept of the redundancy of government hoves into view. But how would we live without government? This is discussed in an article called Non Government, already distributed. Part Two Being able to see the situation as it is today, and having some kind of vision of how the situation could be after the transition, all we need to do is to establish the best way of transition. We become rapidly aware of a picture of “us” and “them”, where "them” is represented by all those who wish to have power over others. We must consider these as the enemy. When considering an enemy, the classic guide lines come from Sun Tzu, in his “The Art of War”, where he says: “8. It is the rule in war, if our forces are ten to the enemy's one, to surround him; if five to one, to attack him; if twice as numerous, to divide our army into two." Our numbers must be millions to one. I think our approach to surrounding the enemy would be to completely ignore him, so that he becomes surrounded in ignorance. We must appeal to every individual to try to think for himself, and to avoid the thinking that has been poured into him by those who wish to control him. So we see, that by supporting those campaigning for peace, we are supporting those campaign for the abandonment of government. This is the only possible way forward. We must use our energies to support those in our immediate contact zone. We must strengthen ties between local organisations, so that we can develop plans for community cooperation, to ensure that the immediate needs such as shelter, food clothes, medicines and medical help are available. I propose that we cease all activities representing protests against government, ignore them completely, cease publicising their insane machinations, and respectfully leave governments to die in peace. We must work to minimise all contact with government. Protesting against them has proven time and again to have little or no effect. So we can also split our army into two. One half can help us to avoid contact with government, and the other half can work on filling any gaps that the demise of government might leave. We believe this is the only possible way forward.
