As early humans, much like animals, we mostly hunted, fished and ate off the land-- until the human mind developed, allowing us to think ahead into the future.
We became alone among the animals, afraid of death and of future loss.
When we became afraid of death, of injury and imprisonment, we became controllable-- and greatly valued among other animals.
You cannot frighten or threaten an animal with the loss of liberty, or with torture or future imprisonment, if they don't comply, because animals have very little sense of tomorrow.
However, you can get a man to literally give you his eggs by threatening him.
Human farming has been the most profitable--and destructive--occupation throughout history. And is now reaching its destructive climax.
Some people get confused because governments provide healthcare, water, education, roads, etc., and thus imagine that there is some benevolence at work. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Farmers also provide healthcare and irrigation and training to their livestock.
More people get confused because we are allowed certain liberties, and thus imagine that our government protects our freedoms.
But farmers plant their crops a certain distance apart to increase their yields, and will also allow certain animals larger stalls or fields if it means they will produce more meat and milk.
In our country--our tax farm--our farmer grants us certain freedoms not because he cares about our liberties, but because he wants to increase his profits.
Are you beginning to see the nature of the cage you were born into?
But this system of human farming is now nearing its end.
The terrible tragedy of the modern American system has occurred not in spite of, but because of past economic freedoms.
The massive increases in American wealth throughout the 19th century resulted from economic freedom -- and it was this very increase in wealth that fed the size and power of the state.
Whenever the livestock become exponentially more productive, you get a corresponding increase in the number of farmers and their dependents.
The growth of the state is always proportional to the preceding economic freedoms.
Economic freedom creates wealth, and the wealth attracts more thieves and political parasites, whose greed then destroys the economic freedom.
In other words, freedom extracts the cancer of the state.
To be truly free is both very easy, and very hard. Easy, because all we must do is open our eyes to see, and open our minds to understand it.
Yet, we make it hard by avoiding the horror of our enslavement because it is too scary and painful to see it directly.
We dance around the violence of our dying system because of our self-conscious fear of being ridiculed--being attacked by fellow livestock.
All it takes is a collective awakening. We can only be kept in the cages we refuse to see.
It's time to wake up...
To see the farm is to leave it.
