There is a hidden group of people continually seeking to keep the masses of population in servitude.  Really, there is.  It seems that the only time the Republicans and Democrats agree on anything is how to take more power from the people and to control us.  The easiest and best way for them to control us is if we control ourselves first.  It is by making us distrustful of each other.  

There is an interesting dynamic in the United States and similar “modern” cultures today.  One major group is preaching and teaching Unity while many of the other voices in government, media, and the public at large are preaching and teaching diversity and focusing on what makes us different.  What is lost in the shuffle is how much freedom we are losing year after year.

The Government of the United States ownes about 60 percent of all mortgages in the United States and is rapidly becoming a major shareholder in Chrysler, General Motors and several banking and financial institutions.  With ownership comes control.  The congress seems mostly compliant with the unreasonable demands of a very vigorous President who is bent on taking more and more control of every aspect of our lives.  

To borrow a phrase from Neal Boortz, the “Imperial Federal Government” keeps growing and taking more and more of our freedoms.

I was thinking of a speech given by Willie Lynch in 1712 about how to control slaves.   The speech itself is reproduced here in its entirety from this site:

Greetings,

Gentlemen. I greet you here on the bank of the James River in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and twelve. First, I shall thank you, the gentlemen of the Colony of Virginia, for bringing me here. I am here to help you solve some of your problems with slaves. Your invitation reached me on my modest plantation in the West Indies, where I have experimented with some of the newest, and still the oldest, methods for control of slaves. Ancient Rome would envy us if my program is implemented. As our boat sailed south on the James River, named for our illustrious King, whose version of the Bible we cherish, I saw enough to know that your problem is not unique. While Rome used cords of wood as crosses for standing human bodies along its highways in great numbers, you are here using the tree and the rope on occasions. I caught the whiff of a dead slave hanging from a tree, a couple miles back. You are not only losing valuable stock by hangings, you are having uprisings, slaves are running away, your crops are sometimes left in the fields too long for maximum profit, you suffer occasional fires, your animals are killed. Gentlemen, you know what your problems are; I do not need to elaborate. I am not here to enumerate your problems, I am here to introduce you to a method of solving them. In my bag here, I HAVE A FOOL PROOF METHOD FOR CONTROLLING YOUR BLACK SLAVES. I guarantee every one of you that, if installed correctly,IT WILL CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS. My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it. I HAVE OUTLINED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE SLAVES; AND I TAKE THESE DIFFERENCES AND MAKE THEM BIGGER. I USE FEAR, DISTRUST AND ENVY FOR CONTROL PURPOSES. These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies and it will work throughout the South. Take this simple little list of differences and think about them. On top of my list is “AGE,” but it’s there only because it starts with an “a.” The second is “COLOR” or shade. There is INTELLIGENCE, SIZE, SEX, SIZES OF PLANTATIONS, STATUS on plantations, ATTITUDE of owners, whether the slaves live in the valley, on a hill, East, West, North, South, have fine hair, course hair, or is tall or short. Now that you have a list of differences, I shall give you an outline of action, but before that, I shall assure you that DISTRUST IS STRONGER THAN TRUST AND ENVY STRONGER THAN ADULATION, RESPECT OR ADMIRATION. The Black slaves after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self-refueling and self-generating for HUNDREDS of years, maybe THOUSANDS. Don’t forget, you must pitch the OLD black male vs. the YOUNG black male, and the YOUNG black male against the OLD black male. You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE, and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks. But it is NECESSARY THAT YOUR SLAVES TRUST AND DEPEND ON US. THEY MUST LOVE, RESPECT AND TRUST ONLY US. Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control. Use them. Have your wives and children use them, never miss an opportunity. IF USED INTENSELY FOR ONE YEAR, THE SLAVES THEMSELVES WILL REMAIN PERPETUALLY DISTRUSTFUL. Thank you gentlemen.

According to Willie Lynch, by focusing on the differences you can pit the groups against each other so that they will not trust each other and instead will strust the slave owner, or in our case the Imperial Federal Government.  There is much more to Willie Lynch’s perspective than this, but it was used en masse 300 years ago and the effects are still being felt today.  That is part of the problem that some minority populations are facing today because they were indoctrinated in general much more than other populations but through the media and political efforts we are being fed the same lines of garbage that will only serve to make us slaves.

We need to focus on unity instead of diversity.  If we are united, we can make the world a much better place.  Focus on what we have in common, not on what is different.

The institution of slavery was much more brutal and violent, from George Will’s article last week here is a description of how the government is working to enslave us by much more genteel means:

In “Democracy in America,” Alexis de Tocqueville anticipated people being governed by “an immense, tutelary power” determined to take “sole charge of assuring their enjoyment and of watching over their fate.” It would be a power “absolute, attentive to detail, regular, provident and gentle,” aiming for our happiness but wanting “to be the only agent and the sole arbiter of that happiness.” It would, Tocqueville said, provide people security, anticipate their needs, direct their industries and divide their inheritances. It would envelop society in “a network of petty regulations — complicated, minute and uniform.” But softly: “It does not break wills; it softens them, bends them, and directs them” until people resemble “a herd of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.”

This is wayyy too accurate for my tastes.  We need to stand up and be more independent of government.
