Freedom Takers Versus THE PEOPLE as Freedom Makers!
A Forward Looking Narrative
…if and when a civilization begins to lose its creative power, the people below its surface and beyond its borders….begin to resist assimilation with the result that the society…becomes divided against itself by sharp lines of distinction between a dominant minority and an internal and external proletariat. The minority, having lost the power to influence and attract, begins to impose itself by force. The proletariat, inwardly alienated, remains in, but not of, the disintegrating society until the disintegration has gone so far that the dominant minority can no longer suppress the efforts of the proletariat to secede. On the act of secession, at length accomplished, a new society is conceived.
A Study Of History (unabridged)
Volume I PP 187-188
Throughout history the most fundamental battle has been between the freedom making aspiration that comes from godliness and the freedom taking aspirations that come from godlessness. No nation, society, and or civilization has been perfectly godly or perfectly godless. Still, the greatest creative powers of any People are achieved at their most godly state, when they are consciously seeking and doing the truth of heaven on earth, as much as they can know it. The decline of a People, which begins as and when it loses its creative power, is closely linked to a decline in godliness and an increase in godlessness.
The student of history, sociology, psychology, and politics must admit, if they survey recorded human history, that freedom stands on the foundation of virtue, thrift, and independence.
Freedom is the power of participation on a more or less equal and meritorious basis where there is a balance between such ideals as Unity in diversity, Popular sovereignty, Democratic equality, and the Rule of law. At the root of Freedom, the People Rule, but with an approved wisdom that transcends their limited experiences.
Freedom stands solidly on virtues that work for the good of all most all the time. It is practiced by a thrift that is self-sustaining and that is openly competitive and yet also cooperative in a balance between the common good and individual initiative. Freedom requires a citizenry that has an independence that is based on self-expression, self-reliance, and a self-governance that takes decision-making power more away from the central authority and more towards individuals, private associations and smaller communities.
Godliness, which produces freedom, is not just the moral code as it applies to “sex”, as some whose education should have taught them better seem to have mistaken it. Godliness is described as “religion” in the Book of James in the New Testament where it says, “pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this- to visit the widows and orphans, and to keep himself unspotted from the present world-reality.”
Quite simply, godliness is an attitude, not brought on by coercion or force but by a willing heart alone. It is a lining up of one’s life choices and way of life with the laws of God and His Creation, of serving the higher things before the lower things, and of giving of yourself, first to your own and then to others, before giving them to yourself.
Because godliness demands excellence, the godly seek knowledge and experience and new insights.
Because godliness demands some form of holiness, the godly are not fooled by slick marketing and rhetoric when they are asked to accept things that just aren’t useful to the whole of the people.
Finally, because godliness demands not focusing on the “lower needs” of your human flesh before focusing on higher needs for others and then yourself, the godly are not tempted by promises of gain without sacrifice, actions without consequences, or safety through surrender of their freedoms.
In a disintegrating society, ruled by the freedom takers who stand atop the pyramid of Western Civilization, the citizen of the lowest class, which Latin word is proletariat and which is quoted by Toynbee above, begin to come to two simple and powerful realizations;
WE ARE DIFFERENT- this proletariat, or “country class”, realize that the minority, or “ruling class”, who control the levers of power in their society have different beliefs and interests than the “country class” and that, what is more, those beliefs and interests are not compatible with one another
WE ARE MORE- the country class realize that they are more numerous and that everything good and useful in society comes from them; they realize that they are truly the wealth creators; they realize that they are truly the majority, not the riling class, and they see through the propaganda in schools and the media that has painted the beliefs of the country class as “outside the mainstream” where the “mainstream” is merely what the majority of the ruling class believe
The awakening of the country class to the reality that they truly are different than the ruling class and that they truly have more numbers and more real power AT THE POINT OF CREATION, comes even as there is a growing realization that there cannot be any real peaceful co-existence between the ruling class, its interests, and its beliefs, and the country class, its interests, and its beliefs.
Either the ruling class, its interests, and its beliefs must be set aside or the country class will lose its freedom and its very way of life so that future generations will not even know what the beliefs of the People were!
This is a point of great moment in the history of a People or a Nation, when the “People” become conscious of their status as BENEATH the contempt of the people who hold the levers of power. This is the point where the People go from being “subjects” who wish for freedom to sovereigns in their own right who think and act as FREEDOM MAKERS, not wanting or waiting for the approval or permission of the ruling class or the institutions that class might control.
When the People realize fully that the ruling class are Freedom Takers things begin to change from within.
The People see that they must be Freedom Makers on their own.
They realize they must ignore the wishes of the elite minority who try to tell them that their beliefs and way of life are “extreme” or “not mainstream” or “crazy” or “barbaric.”
This begins an “inner secession” away from the institutions controlled by the elite minority as People Powered institutions, whether official or unofficial, form up and begin to allow the People to do for themselves that which they no longer trust the ruling class and its institutions to do for them.
We are reaching such a point in Western Civilization, here on these shores, where the Ruling Class, what some call “The Political Class”, are so lording themselves over the People and yet so out of harmony with their needs, beliefs, and aspirations that it is creating a massive rift that is not able to be mended.
We see this in how the Political Class says that the country is heading in the right direction, by 67%, while the People say it is not, by 84%!
When the media types or college professors or politicians talk about something being “mainstream”, they are looking only at the limited world they live in, a world populated by only around 7% of the population, but who are concentrated in government, the fortune 500, academia, the media, and the judiciary. So, the views of 7% of the population, which are far different than the views of the People, are portrayed as “mainstream” while the views of the majority are portrayed as “not mainstream” or even as “extreme.”
While the vast majority of the People want society to uphold marriage as between one man and one woman and not to encourage alternative forms of marriage with benefits and privileges that are limited to the family (as society’s means of preserving its most basic institution) the Political Class are for such a form of “marriage” as would not be recognizable to human civilizations going back to the beginning of human history.
The upshot of this is that the People’s views on this are constantly depicted as “extreme” or even “right wing” by the Political Class who OWN the media and academia and use them not to inform or edify but to confuse, deceive, and brainwash the People!
Over and over, the Political Class in the media and academia pull out the label “extreme”, “rightwing” and even “dangerous” when referring to beliefs or policy goals that are cherished by the majority of the People. Like any efficient ruling elite, they refuse to even acknowledge that their views are the ones viewed as extreme by the People. They even act as if the People only disagree with the ruling class because the People are victims of bad information, so they try to control the information as best they can, to ensure that only the “right” information gets out.
If you want to see people keep what they earn or invest in, you are “for the rich”, never mind that the people who are saying this are often far richer than the people they are accusing of being for the rich, as we see with the Coons-O’Donnell race in Delaware where a member of the Political Class who is filthy rich, and that, near as we can see, by the advantages of his position in government, accuses a candidate who is far from rich of being “for the rich.” One wonders how such a charade could get past a group of school children, until on realizes who often teaches those children- servants of the ruling class!
Freedom takers have always been with us, and they will never go away, and each time they come at us with a new bag of tricks and a new line of “reasonings” that seem to promise more and more with less and less cost and with more freedom taking consequences than the last run at their brand of “freedom FROM godliness.”
At this time, in America, the Freedom Takers are only now starting to see that their cushy life is in jeopardy, they see that the People are moving past the lies and the propaganda to become freedom makers and assert their own sovereign existence as free people! The inner secession from the political class and its freedom taking ideas, agenda, and institutions has already begun!
