Smashing the Illusion of Consent… Peacefully
by Eric Peters
Refusing to fly again until TSA Submission Training is done away with – and not buying cars equipped with Big Brother technology – that’s a good start on the path back to liberty. But if we really want to pick up the pace – and get back to what this country once was, a very long time ago, there’s a play we could make about a year from now that would fundamentally change everything:
Don’t play their game.
Not until, at least, voting isn’t a con – as it is currently and has been for decades.
No, worse than a con.
Voting in the context of our current system is the mechanism by which we enslave ourselves – and this is key – without being conscious of our enslavement.
It is called the illusion of consent.
We – most of us, at any rate – believe that because we are offered the choice between Tweedledee and Tweedledum that the oppression subsequently visited upon us by the state and its agents has been done with our consent, since after all, we got to vote on it first.
It is an absurd proposition when you deconstruct it – as well as when examined in the light of morality. On a purely mechanical level, it’s ridiculous to believe that you or I or any individual has any meaningful say in what is done to us under color of law, on the basis of The Vote. Have you ever written your congresscretin? The form letters one receives in reply, auto-penned signature and all, reveal the weight given your mighty vote… .
Trust me. Every vote does not matter – or even count.
