The War Is Over...And We Won

<SNIP>
The end of the end, so to speak, was in 1994. That was the year the Internet gained widespread public knowledge and use. Governments have always thrived by controlling education of the young, controlling the currency and controlling information. In other words: indoctrination, inflation, misinformation, and propaganda. The governed vastly outnumber the governors so force was never enough to keep control. Sure you could make an example out of a couple of the slaves by using violence on them. But to efficiently control a bunch of humans and use them as tax cows, you have to convince them that they are better off being tax cows. After the Internet, it became impossible for the governed not to find out the truth of their condition.

I understand if when I say that government has lost the war, you might think I'm crazy. After all, things look pretty bleak. Yes, the government is out of control in the US and in many other countries. But their actions are more like death throes. Like a big, mortally wounded beast, the state is lashing out with the strength and ferocity that comes from panic. It senses death approaching. And that may make it temporarily more dangerous. But the end is in sight. All their actions are actually reactions to fact that they're losing. They are trying to close the doors, control the flow of information and restrict the flow of capital, but people are finding ways around everything (especially people like us and the people who read publications like this).

So keep your head down and stay sharp for now. But rejoice. Before you know it, it will be safe to celebrate out in the open.

An encouraging perspective... *I* had already arrived at the realization that current efforts fighting the beast were wasted efforts, and that eventually freedom (as with gravity) will prevail... but this author voices so well.

The growth of the liberty movement among our vibrant youth is inspiring, and "the next generational wave" will bring amazing social breakthroughs we can't even begin to imagine today.

If anything, perhaps we should step aside & loudly cheer forth (Forward!®) the statists... as the quicker they burn off their final ideological life energy, the better for everyone.
