One of the common questions I get asked is: if this is an option, why don't more people know about it? The answer is that many people already know about it and live it. The person who passed you on the street, or who sold you your last used-book, or the Minsiter of Finance himself, already all know about it. However, like any good working machine, it tries to get rid of the jam in the wheel.
Now, I'm not talking about secret, covert operations where they whisk you away to some forlorn interogation cell. There would be an uproar and the media would/could be all over it. But, in addition to the above answer is: just because you don't hear about it doesn't mean it's not happening. Remember, secrets happen aall over the world and throughout history. All that matters is what's written in the books. I never thought I would say this, but thanks to the internet, the victors can be your everyday man, woman, even child.
My thoughts are to get online and start looking. Start to become aware of what is really going on. There are some key words you can look into like Admiral Law, Occupied Territories, Economic Apartheid. The list is truly endless. I'm not saying that you have to do anything or accept what some of these theories throw out there. However, I believe upon reading anything, even if you don't agree with it, provides some useful, intellectual ammunition.
There are people who live in Canada, mostly on the West coast, those hippies, who have been living as free-, natural-persons for some time. They now take the time to share the information they have discovered on this fascinating forum the internet.
So, when people wonder why they haven't heard anything about this stuff all I have to say is: you weren't listening. It would be like people denying that apartheid or racism doesn't exist, or that people are unlawfully evicted from their homelands in order to create naval bases. People in the 1930s and 40s didn't believe that millions of people were being sent to gas chambers. Boy, were they wrong.
I think we are coming upon an age where the people are getting educated and, as a result, getting restless. They are tired of putting up with the same crap the State has not offered and the Corporation has taken away. I think the most recent financial crisis is a key marker in these two bodies trying to hold onto what power they have left.
They are beginning to realize that "we are the many, they are the few".
