Today WikiLeaks released another batch of emails from the account of Hillary and Bill Clinton’s long time political fixer John Podesta. – SEE HERE –
However, an apoplectic CNN is increasingly alarmed the U.S. electorate would be reading the raw material and making up their own mind. According to Clinton News Nework pundit Chris Cuomo: “All your news are belong to us.”:
…”it’s illegal to possess, ah, these stolen documents, it’s different for the media. So everything you are learning about this, you are learning from us….
WHAT? Oh, my gosh. Quick, join the rebellion. We shall meet at the Old Mill, and read these emails by candlelight, secretly, in the dark of night. We shall create legions of scribes to share the message; and in the tradition of the Sons of Liberty we will make with our defiance such a deafening sound as all media from these days forward are forced to note, even as they despise us in the writing of it.
And as we win, we bring forth the scattered free survivors hiding amid the ruins of our great republic; assembled once more… we sing of our deeds in once forbidden songs, and continue tending the flickering flame of individual liberty as it bursts forth again, as it always must, because we are proud and deplorable…
They, all of the media, would essentially prefer us isolated and comfortable only amid the looming shadows cast by their creations.
Declaring independence from King George was not brought swimmingly along through the will of the majority; nor was it initially a palatable consideration for the overwhelming signatories of the ultimate document.
Ten odd years later, on Monday September 17th, 1787 a positive outcome of the secret constitutional convention -which had been going on for four months- seemed even less likely. Mr. Edmund Randolph of Virginia began the day by predicting that nine of the 13 states would fail to ratify the plan “and confusion must ensue.”
Randolph knew the inherent problems with constructing forms of governance. He knew a nation born of freedom would need to be protected from itself. Demonstrating a clear grasp of democracy’s inherent dangers, Randolph reminded his colleagues during the early weeks of the Constitutional Convention that the purpose for which they had gathered was:
“to provide a cure for the evils under which the United States labored; that in tracing these evils to their origin every man had found it in the turbulence and trials of democracy….”
John Adams, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, countered the fears of Randolph and championed the Constitution in his state precisely because it would not create a democracy:
“Democracy never lasts long,” he noted. “It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself.” He insisted, “There was never a democracy that ‘did not commit suicide.’”
On that final Monday, Ben Franklin, now 81-years-old, told the assembly he had something to say. Too weak to deliver the speech himself, he asked fellow Pennsylvanian James Wilson to read it for him. Here are excerpts:
“Mr. President, I confess that there are several parts of this constitution which I do not at present approve, but I am not sure I shall never approve them. For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged by better information, or fuller consideration, to change opinions — even on important subjects — which I once thought right but found to be otherwise.
“The older I grow, the more apt I am to doubt my own judgment and to pay more respect to the judgment of others. Most men, indeed as well as most sects in religion, think themselves in possession of all truth — and that, wherever others differ from them, it is so far error.
“When you assemble a number of men to have the advantage of their joint wisdom, you inevitably assemble with those men all their prejudices, their passions, their errors of opinion, their local interests and their selfish views. From such an assembly, can a perfect production be expected?
“Thus I consent, sir, to this constitution. The opinions I have had of its errors, I sacrifice to the public good.
“If every one of us, in returning to our constituents, were to report the objections he has had to it and endeavor to gain partisans in support of them, we might prevent its being generally received — and thereby lose all the salutary effects and great advantages.
“Much of the strength and efficiency of any government in procuring and securing happiness to the people depends on the general opinion of the goodness of the government, as well as of the wisdom and integrity of its governors. I hope, therefore, that we shall act heartily and unanimously in recommending this constitution.
“On the whole, sir, I cannot help expressing a wish that every member of the convention who may still have objections to it would, with me, on this occasion doubt a little of his own infallibility — and to make manifest our unanimity.”
For four months, the delegates had been locked in an epic battle over whether our fledgling nation should have a strong federal government. And we have been struggling with those same issues and arguments for the past 230 years.
The reason is the same now as it always has been. There are those, who as a natural course of their disposition, wish to rule the lives of others. Division is the tool that enables them to create the fear they need. Fear is the weapon they use to remove opposition.
There are now, as there have always been, those who hold a collective view of all governance, and individual liberty and freedom principles run directly in opposition to their progressive goals.
Their goals are achieved by destruction of common acceptances, which they view as roadblocks toward the gain of their desires.
Fabian Socialists say break the world and “Remould it Closer To The Heart’s Desire”.
In modern times the instruction ‘break the world’ can just as easily be applied to break the ‘ties-that-bind’, or more specifically break the very constitution which protects us.
Hence, they need you to actually operate against your beliefs of individualism, and they need to continue convincing people to vote against their own individual best interests by voting on behalf of the collective.
The true concern of the average person is that their beliefs are insignificant, irrelevant, or in the minority. The fear is based on isolation; that there are not others thinking the same way… that I am alone.
This is the concept of fear being used as a weapon. The “concern” carried by most ordinary citizens is exactly the same. And the tool, division, is wielded for the exact same purpose.
The methods of the post World War II Fabians are the same methods being deployed in modern America. Only now they are defined by the modern harbinger of radical leftism, Saul Alinsky.
Nothing has changed except the people executing the method to control their opposition.
Isolate – Ridicule – Marginalize: Through the process of ‘isolating the opposition’ they deploy labels such as whackobirds, jihadists, terrorists, extremists, racists et al. All intending to isolate the common sense patriot from their like-minded association.
Through the process of “ridiculing the opposition” they deploy media narratives to diminish the character, integrity, intelligence of the leaders who rise in opposition to the regime.
Through the process of “marginalizing the opposition” they deploy strategies to make the larger mass of the electorate believe the opposing leadership is, and will be, ineffective. Thus the attacks against all prior patriots, and now Donald Trump.
The goal is to make supporting the opposing leadership *appear* futile. Instill fear.
It is EXCEPTIONALLY IMPORTANT that each person teach themselves, and then others, the skill to identify when these strategies are being deployed. It is only when you easily recognize them, from both the regime and from the media, that you can find your own strength and empowerment to push back.
