The Enslavement of Intellect


I was born into what some considered a free society, able to do what free men can do in a social order that believes they are free. I once thought I too was free growing up as a boy.  After many encounters with the social structures developed by our governance, my reading and my studies have led me to conclude to the contrary what we believed as the true state of affairs that befalls much of humanity.  We have become part of the animal farm, much of what Orwell has talked about, the enslavement of the intellect that has accelerated during the past few decades, but has gone on for a large part of our human history.

History documents innumerable accounts of a people being enslaved by an empire, but in modern eras the mass enslavement of people has shifted also into the psychological realm resulting into an even greater kind of dependence. The illusion of freedom is an even greater evil that has descended upon us in a warfare led against sovereignty, which in today’s world is a stark contrast to the realities of a society that believes it is genuinely autonomous.  The notion that others can take control over us is a tale that often gets attention, but the extent that this campaign can effectuate a successful reality is often debated in the literature.  The nature of the debate consists largely in qualitative discourse, how significant is this oppression of the human being in open societies?  To what extent can this despotism be maintained or at what level of deception will this lead the multitudes to obey by their masters rule?  Arguably this will disturb many who do not concern themselves with such talk.

I am now but a shadow of a former self who once believed in a freedom taught by our educational system.  I believed in a freedom mutually shared by millions of other Americans and other world citizens, but has now been awakened from the last decade by the current zeitgeist.

In standard written English, when two negatives are used in one sentence, the negatives are understood to cancel one another and produce a weakened affirmative.  Hence, double negatives can be employed to similar effect (as in Pink Floyd‘s “Another Brick in the Wall“, where schoolchildren chant “We don’t need no education / We don’t need no thought control”).  The take on how we view the world is much debated by many who pay attention to what is outside of their lives.  The structure of their world view is largely based upon how they think the world operates and is determinately processed within their communications, music, social influences, readings, and writings.

The summary for what the literature speaks about is as follows.  For many countries, the creation of debt is a tool of enslavement for the citizens of that country.  Thus the impulse to spend money as instructed by those running the farms is expected and maintained through the subjugation of the political systems.  The bankers have used this Ponzi scheme for thousands of years.  The introduction of consumerism is just another offshoot to advance and exploit the agendas for these human farms in the capitalistic society.  On one side, you distract the individual participants from more pertinent matters at hand, encouraging the debt of substandard objects not built to last, on another side, you entertain them, and tax them for the participation knowing that they must again buy something designed to fail within a specified period.  The social security number used to hold an individual accountable to the state, being a servant to the state, thus propagating the contract to the state by being a consumer and willing submitter of personal freedoms to be part of the state when the threat of danger is in jeopardy.  The use of the Social Security number (SSN) has expanded significantly since its inception in 1936.  Created merely to keep track of the earnings history of U.S. workers for Social Security entitlement and benefit computation purposes, it has come to be used as a nearly universal identifier.  Assigned at birth, the SSN enables government agencies to identify individuals in their records and businesses to track an individual’s financial information.

Arguments for the problems with Social Security….

It seems that back in 1913 the United States was short of cash. By the end of World War I, wartime costs had depleted the treasury and there were several really bad financial panics. The country needed to print more money than it had as equity to restore confidence in the money supply and get the economy back on its feet.

When you or I need more money, we use something as collateral and go to a bank for a loan. When a country needs more money it has to go somewhere also. But in 1913 there wasn’t anywhere to go. So the US created the Federal Reserve Act. This established a private central bank (The Federal Reserve Bank) that would regulate the amount of money the US government was allowed to borrow and put in circulation. It also would expect to be repaid, like any bank, with interest.

After only 20 years things went from bad to worse. During Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidency, in 1933, the US was unable to pay its debt. The county was bankrupt. The private banks that made up the Federal Reserve demanded their money and Roosevelt responded. He had to use the only thing left of any value to pay the banks and continue doing business with them — the citizens of our country. Us!

Exactly how all this was orchestrated is too lengthy to be addressed here, but this much can be told. The original birth or naturalization record for every U.S. Citizen is on file in the official records in Washington, D.C. (you get to keep a copy!) and the property and assets of every living U.S. Citizen is pledged as collateral for the National Debt!

Within two weeks and three days each Certificate of Live Birth is to be filed in Washington D.C. Evidence reveals that there is even a Federal Children Department established by the Shepherd/Townsend Act of 1922 under the Department of Commerce that appears to be involved in this process in some way. Every citizen is given a number (the red number on the Birth Certificate) and each live birth is valued at from 650,000 to 750,000 Federal Reserve dollars in collateral from the Fed.

This kind of makes you feel a little different when you look at Federal Reserve Chairman, Bernanke, doesn’t it?

OK. Let’s take a pause to look at the Birth Certificates [below]. You will see the red numbers and you will see the fact that it is, in reality, a “Bank Note.” Congratulations — you and I are commodities!

Names in “ALL CAPS” on Birth Certificates

Since the early 1960s, State governments have issued Birth Certificates to “persons” with legal fictional names using “ALL CAPS” names. This is not a lawful record of your physical birth, but rather the acknowledgement of the “birth” of the juristic, all-caps name. It may appear to be your true name, but since no proper name is ever written in all caps (either lawfully or grammatically) it does not identify who you are. The Birth Certificate is the government’s self-created document of title for its new property — you and me! In a way, it makes us a kind of corporation whose company name is the same as our real name, but written in ALL CAPS. This “corporation” then generates taxes and wealth over its lifetime and in this way repays the collateral that Uncle Sam borrowed from the Federal Reserve.

Remember that “Bond” thing printed on the bottom of the certificate?

Bond. I a: A usually formal written agreement by which a person undertakes toperform a certain act (as fulfill the obligations of a contract) . . with the condition that failure toperform or abstain willobligate the person . . to pay a sum of money or will result in the forfeiture of money put up by the person or surety. lb: One who acts as a surety. 2: An interest-bearing document giving evidence of a debt issued by a government body or corporation that is sometimes secured by a lien on property and is often designed to take care of a particular financial need. — Ibid. — Merriam-Webster Dictionary of Law (1996).Banknote. A kind of negotiable instrument, a promissory note made by a bank payable to the bearer on demand, used as money, and in many jurisdictions is legal tender. Along with coins, banknotes make up the cash or bearer forms of all modern money.

Birth certificates are a form of securities called “warehouse receipts.” The items included on a warehouse receipt, as descried at §7-202 of the Uniform Commercial Code, the law which governs commercial paper and transactions, which parallel a birth certificate are:

  • the location of the warehouse where the goods are stored…(residence)
  • the date of issue of the receipt…..(“Date issued”)
  • the consecutive number of the receipt…(found on back or front of the certificate, usually in red numbers)
  • a description of the goods or of the packages containing them…(name, sex, date of birth, etc.)
  • the signature of the warehouseman, which may be made by his authorized agent…(municipal clerk or state registrar’s signature)

Birth certificates now appear to at least qualify as “warehouse receipts” under the Uniform Commercial Code. Black’s Law Dictionary, 7th ed. defines:

Warehouse Receipt. “…A warehouse receipt, which is considered a document of title, may be a negotiable instrument and is often used for financing with inventory as security.”

It is not difficult to see that a state-created Birth Certificate, with an ALL CAPS name is a document evidencing debt the moment it is issued.

Once a state has registered a birth document with the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Department notifies the Treasury Department, which takes out a loan from the Federal Reserve. The Treasury uses the loan to purchase a bond (the Fed holds a purchase money security interest in the bond) from the Department of Commerce, which invests the sale proceeds in the stock or bond market. The Treasury Department then issues Treasury securities in the form of Treasury Bonds, Notes, and Bills using the bonds as surety for the new securities.

This cycle is based on the future tax revenues of the legal person whose name appears on the Birth Certificate. This also means that the bankrupt, corporate U.S. can guarantee to the purchasers of their securities the lifetime labor and tax revenues of every citizen of the United States/American with a Birth Certificate as collateral for payment. This device is initiated simply by converting the lawful, true name of the child into a legal, juristic name of a person.

Legally, you are considered to be a slave or indentured servant to the various Federal, State and local governments via your STATE-issued and STATE-created Birth Certificate in the name of your all-caps person. Birth Certificates are issued so that the issuer can claim exclusive title to the legal person created thereby.

The Problems of the SSN

The compliance of this servitude is now being sought on a global level using the United Nations to carry out this scheme.  Another example of the big getting bigger, and consolidation by the elite few taking on larger portions of available farms.

The malicious forces that have cooperated with those against us are many and are often attributed as the cause of much of our destiny. Nevertheless, the duty of being self-directed is to meet the challenges that we face, and to combat these forces by use of our intellectual and spiritual capabilities.


Depending on what your religious views are or what your views on faith are, in Christianity, the story of Jesus Christ giving his life to save us from the enslavement of a world gone mad.  Clearly the weight of the world was on that cross those days of his crucifixion.  In his teachings we are given a set of rules, a morality to live by despite the evils of the world that we will meet.  During this time the world experienced one of the most massive build ups of empire ever seen by man.  Christianity was actually ordained by Constantine, the 57th Emperor of the Roman Empire.  An Empire that was known for brutality upon humanity, seems to be a contradiction for tolerating and adopting Christianity, a fact that is controversial even to this day.  (see…. Constantine 57th Roman Emperor )

Ironically, the Christian movement would be used by the church systems to again control the masses of people for their own human enslavement purposes not what Jesus Christ would have in mind.
