Guest Post: Ignorance Is Bliss; So Go Back To Sleep
by Mike Krieger
Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away, and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any farther obedience.
- John Locke
When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you – pull your beard, flick your face – to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humor.
- John Lennon
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Go Back to Sleep
Most of you that are taking the time to read this have already experienced some level of “waking up” over the past several years or longer. Most of you have also probably felt from time to time that the knowledge you possess is a burden and have fully appreciated the meaning of “ignorance is bliss.” I know this because I have felt these very same emotions at times. The most important thing to remember; however, is that we are just awake individuals within a wave or cycle of awakening. There were those that came before us and there will be many, many more to come after us.
Last Thursday, I was at Freedom Fest in Vegas for a brief stint and I had the honor to meet and break bread with some of the most influential minds in the Liberty Movement. As I sat there at the table at Delmonico’s, thoroughly impressed with the intellect, commitment and total sense of purpose of the people around me I became more sure than ever that TPTB don’t stand a chance. The problem for those control freak clowns is that ten years ago they had at least 95% of the American populace completely asleep. I would estimate that number at the moment to be around 75%. If I am anywhere close to being right, that means that 25% of the population is at least somewhat aware that things aren’t as they appear to be. They are asking serious questions and looking for serious answers.
Breaking it down even further, I would say that 5% of the population can be described as fully awake and somewhat committed to fully committed. This is something like 15 million Americans and is more than enough. Most importantly, once you are truly awakened you never go back to sleep. In my five years or so in this adventure I have seen the transformative process of many, many people within my personal circle of friends and contacts. Not ONE, I repeat not ONE of them has ever fallen back into the matrix mindset. It just doesn’t happen and it reminds me of quotes about truth and lies. As Mark Twain said “If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.” Then there is the counter quote from I can’t remember who that “lies require commitment.” Believe me, they are committed! That said, too much is coming out now and what TPTB are doing in the markets is desperately manipulating everything so that another wave does not wake up. There are terrified that this next wave of people will be the tipping point for their control structure. They are correct but it is coming soon to smack them in the face no matter what they do.
