How do you convey a passion to other people about critical information that you have discovered or uncovered to be more precise? For conversations sake, lets say you spent years researching a topic and found volumes of clear evidence to link hidden truths and ideas that would profoundly change the world if truth is disseminated and accepted. You risk being judged of saying something controversial, yet you feel it is so compelling that you should share this information despite the hesitation.
The web of deceit has infiltrated our media systems that transmit much of what we become aware of in the current information zeitgeist a.k.a. news. Snippets of our current information ignite censorship and filter down in doses that are approved from some editors desk. As others may not be very interested in your findings and you want to share them, you become disenchanted with how others may receive these personal thought gems let alone agree with them.
With all the disinformation, propaganda, and demagogues for our media sources which are acting pundits for the oligarchy, there is so much created information that must be very critically and logically deciphered to get some sort of semblance of truth that others can confirm, such as a litmus test of reason. The trick is to use logic on those who create much of the babble that dissuade their audiences not yet awakened to this manipulation. Most of these snake-oil sales-persons are under a bureaucratic control of some governing body that do not adhere to the fundamental journalistic philosophy this nation was forged on: an independent and unsolicited purveyor in factual origins that transcend the boundaries of moral turpitude.
We must let reason depose judgements of moral turpitude, as it is the only defense we have from the despotic control over our liberties. The rational person can be a juggernaut of resistance to the immoral behavior and malicious intent of the autocratic mind. They are approaching the world with a selfish agenda that can easily be dismantled if we pay attention and diffuse their jargon of lies with reason. The single most important element in any body politic is the education of the human being. An education that supports free thinking, and critical thinking in these times of another very dark age in humanity.
The only salvation we must bolster is a direct result of our ability to intelligently analyze the affairs of our communities, let alone our own personal psyche’s. Whatever paradigm shift happens to befall us, we are directly responsible for its vindication or its indictment. As a people we must work together to fight tyranny because it will take more than just one of us to keep down the unreasonable and chaotic oppression of the few.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

“Our contemporaries are constantly excited by two conflicting passions; they want to be led, and they wish to remain free: as they cannot destroy either one or the other of these contrary propensities, they strive to satisfy them both at once. They devise a sole, tutelary, and all-powerful form of government, but elected by the people. They combine the principle of centralization and that of popular sovereignty; this gives them a respite: they console themselves for being in tutelage by the reflection that they have chosen their own guardians. Every man allows himself to be put in leading-strings, because he sees that it is not a person or a class of persons, but the people at large that holds the end of his chain.
By this system the people shake off their state of dependence just long enough to select their master, and then relapse into it again. A great many persons at the present day are quite contented with this sort of compromise between administrative despotism and the sovereignty of the people; and they think they have done enough for the protection of individual freedom when they have surrendered it to the power of the nation at large. This does not satisfy me: the nature of him I am to obey signifies less to me than the fact of extorted obedience.”
