voting is like being forced at gunpoint to choose which rope you want hung with

none of the candidates are ever opposed to war.  they don't represent me.  when i sent letters, they would only reply to tell me how wrong i am.  they don't listen, they never did.  and now they don't even pretend to.

choosing between two or more options is not the same as making a decision. if no is not an option, you have no choice. voting is just a way of passing the blame around, rather than doing anything meaningful. facebook hid from me all those "go vote" posts. first time their algorithm got it right. but not until after i had already seen them, so i know they are missing.

laws don't prevent crime. the system of control is not fixable. it can crash and take us all with it, or we can dismantle it slowly, but it was always doomed to fail. getting rid of bad laws would be a great step towards just that. once they start throwing out bad laws, it won't be long before there's no law left.

do what we say and nobody gets hurt

(or, a society based on fear, trauma and abuse)
what makes anyone any sort of authority over anyone else? when they assume authority over our actions, thoughts, beliefs, etc, that is the same as telling us that we are beneath them, that they are somehow better qualified to make our decisions for us. that is the greatest insult of them all. and when it hurts our feelings to be so insulted, constantly, by those who think they are superior in some way or another, those bullies blame us for it, it's our fault for being too sensitive, they were only trying to help.

where does this power come from? it certainly didn't come from the gods i believe in. it comes from fear. we are taught to be afraid so that we may think we want to be controlled. who puts this fear in our hearts? it does not come from within. who are the real terrorists?

and since i enjoy answering my own questions (even if i might be wrong) i'd say the real terrorists are the bullies, the ones who think they know what's best for other folks. the ones who claim to be "protecting" us from some threat, real or imagined doesn't matter which, so long as we buy into the fear that allows such abuses to continue.

are we there yet?

if we become aware of the attempts to control our minds, then it doesn't work the same way anymore. thing is, it's not in the future, but the past, and we just deny that, which allows it to continue. but not for much longer...
