Looking Out of the Cave

It took me 15 years to accept that everything I had been told to believe, and did believe, was a complete shadow of the truth.

I think the first time I grasped that not only my life, but the lives of a nation, of a world, could be programmed to believe anything was in reading Plato's Allegory of the Cave. His characters stared at shadows eminating from a fire burning from behind them. Ours eminate from a television screen.

There is no way that we could all be so easily lulled into zombie couch potatoes were it not for the television. It has taken over our lives as a master of all our senses. Our every desire becomes meeting the standard the pictures and sounds set before us.
I tell people you are what you put into every hole in your head. If you let something dictate what you should put into every hole in your head, then you are what it wants you to be - it's slave.

After 15 years of no newspaper, no network news, no more categorization of this or that, eventually no more talk radio, I can finally begin to see that there is a light at the entrance of the cave. I have immersed myself in reading and gathering as much information from the internet as well as the classics as I have time to, while away from the master's fields. There have been many nights, sometimes extending into days that I am in a state of mental shock and fearful awe at the truths I have been blessed in seeing. Many times it is the completion of a web of information that is troubling individually, and downright horrifying when the pieces are tied together.

I think I have developed a numbness to those feelings. I'm not saying I can't be scared, I am just a great deal more accepting of the fact that If I want to survive this world, I have to be able to fight to the death without hesitation or remorse to protect what I love, which is my life and the lives of my immediate family.

We can't stop what is happening people. Ron Paul can't stop what is happening. They'd assassinate anyone in a second that stands in the way of their twisted fantasy. That doesn't mean I quit. It means that I can see a great many paths converging toward a huge reset of society and humanity, and when that happens, I can only be prepared to fight on my ground, my level, with the weapons I have. I have and must continue to strengthen my mind, to strengthen my body, and most importantly to strengthen my spirit to face the tempest.

These fools planning whatever the hell on earth they are planning will eventually fail, because like us all, they too are human. And once again men of goodness will rise and the cycle will begin again. Too often we are lured into the belief that we are no longer biological machines living in a world susceptible to the laws of nature. We are at our core rooted into the same basic programming that all of nature is, which is that life forms with the strongest attributes in a particular environment will flourish. These fools will destroy the very environment they are strongest in, and when that happens, I would like to emerge with survivors that are strong in the coming age of this earth.

That is the light at the end of my cave.
