Thanks for signing on. I’m Bob Carkhuff, and this is Freedomblog.
The theme for today is Defining Totalitarianism.
For Freedom-Lovers and Freedom-Builders, this means the price of totalitarianism is the surrender of thinking.
Ironically, it is left to totalitarians like Hitler to point us in the direction of the true meaning of freedom: “What luck it is for rulers that men do not think.”
Indeed the price of totalitarianism is the surrender of thinking to those who restrain its application. The totalitarians—at home and abroad—are linear, one-dimensional people. They operate in “chain-of-command” sequences, a manner unrelated to any people or experiences in their environment. It’s all about following orders with blind, non-thinking allegiance.
The totalitarians are not one or two generations behind advanced civilizations! They are several millennia behind on all empirical measures; they are dedicated only to terrorizing the most advanced thinking people and cultures and to aborting their progeny. These totalitarians, while impotent dimensionally, are powerful “dementially.” They have no vision except continuous struggle between cultures and classes. Because of their own conditioning, they have only destructive initiatives for others and themselves—including suicide. They would rather die than be exposed as abominable miscreants who have wasted and nullified God’s greatest gift: Human Brainpower!
For example, with “9/11” as the battle cry and ‘WMD” as the driving rationale, America went to war. How did this happen? How come We the People were ignorant? We were told that we had satellite intelligence for both crisis and response.
Indeed, we still do; but even today we cannot figure out its meaning and implications. We cannot even “postdict” crises, let alone predict them!
The battles of freedom versus totalitarianism are continuous. They begin with parent “fibs” and teacher “myths.” They progress with manager “attaboys” and executive “edicts.” They culminate in political “spin” and media “buzz” about artificial issues:
- Do public officials interview publicly or privately? (If you answer this question correctly, you probably also know who’s buried in Grant’s Tomb.)
So what can we do about the increasing secrecy and the controls being imposed upon us? In short, what are The Freedom Standards? They constitute the fundamental issue of our time.
There is one basic mission, The Freedom Mission: Tell the truth to the policy-makers, We the People!
Signing off for Freedomblog, this is Bob Carkhuff.
Remember, We the People… must cut through the spin and get to the truth.
