America is doomed. The master plan revelaed.
Posted 10/16/10 , edited 10/16/10


Those of you on CR who don't live in America are very fortunate, as we are on a sinking ship. I advise all else to grab their bag of popcorn and read this article while listening to the Symphony of destruction. This is a wild ride, so get the song here and let's rock. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtPQ_QJpFIU

There has been something of great discussion as of late, it's called a "Police state". I am going to share my thoughts on a police state, what it means for you, why it is bad, and why government is not the only party to blame for it.

The reason the government goes to far in surveillance, security, and police measures is because they want to "Protect the citizens". They actually do want to keep people in order by being overly protective. Well not only that, but they get paid to protect us. By being paid to "protect us", they protect "us" from realizing that it's largely funded by the banks. I'll get into that later. Their idea of "protecting" us is by going to far and invade our civil liberties. The very thing we all hate, a police state, is spawned due to the criticism we as citizens give the government telling them to "DO A BETTER JOB", and we the citizens begin feeling entitled to a "SUPERMAN", to fly in and save the day.


We are partially to blame as the people for feeling that we must have all encompassing protection and help by the government. When we bashed the government for it's slow response on the New Orleans flood, the government set out to ratify new measures for quicker response, and better mobilization. The same mobilization they use to quickly stop you from your protests that is aimed at telling the government to stop breaching your civil rights. We are truly not without fault, and as such, we need to fight the power, but recognize that we share equal weight in responsibility of the manifestation of power.


The policing and control over the people works very much like a company. If the company provides a bad product, people will provide harsh criticism, and stop using the service. If the company does nothing about the problems, it will collapse and fail as people will not put up with frank bulls***. So the logical choice would be for the company to respond to the negative feedback by streamlining their product, making it more efficient to meet the needs of the client so they can have a "stable experience". Of course we all know that changing a product usually requires investors for fork over cash for the finalized product. e.g The banks. In the case of government, it's controlling your life and freedom by over embracing the people in the name of safety and protection. At our current point in time, they have become so efficient, that they are effectively "saving us from ourselves".


Believe it or not, if everybody followed their government blindly, we would have more freedom then what we have now as far as living out our lives goes. Because after time, the government would become lazy and more relax as far as preventative measures go, allowing it's system to become soft. This is a double edged sword however, as those very preventative measures are also meant to provide relief to disasters, and mass casualty incidents. The more we fight, the more the government will strengthen the system to prevent us from fighting or needing to fight any further. After all, the government HATES criticism, they see themselves as being as close as you get to perfection. The very streamline that gives the people more reason for criticizing the government, then causing the government to strengthen it's control over you even more. In a way, we, the people, are shooting ourselves in the foot.

However in recent times, it has been the banks who have been paying for military to back riots. Yes that's right, the military is helping fight the citizens. I believe that this was the final string to be pulled that put us in this vicious cycle. The military and police now act similar to a mercenary force for the banks. There have even been cases where there would be supposed "Anarchists" at peaceful protests, who incite trouble, which then turns the protest into a "Illegal protest", in which the riot police, and now the military are allowed to legally break up. People have followed these anarchists and found that they in fact go back to a military base where they work as soldiers! That's right, if you want to suppress the people and strip them of their civil liberty, then find a way to get around the bill of rights! The first amendment at that! This is censorship on a whole new level.

So if you do not protest your government, you are doing yourself harm. If you do protest your government, you do yourself harm. The question is how do we escape this vicious cycle we seem to have caught ourselves in. I don't know the answer to that, but if we do not find one, America will become the land of government that forces the people to say: "We are free". As if we are not smart enough to realize the truth... We are not free. Our freedoms are being stripped from us day to day, and in place of these freedoms, a cloak to keep us satisfied. Our bill of rights say we still have these wonderful freedoms. Yet those rolling in green are paying the government to expand forceful censorship, and in turn they find ways "around" our rights. We still have rights, they just don't work as advertised because the banks exploit them.

In my opinion, America does not "Work for the people", it works exclusively for the insanely wealthy. If this were a machine, it would be shut down and have an "Out of order" sign on it. As you see a arcade machine that only takes $1,000,000 bills does not get very many users... How would we go about changing the arcade machine to accept quarters? We cannot because the select few playing this game pays off guards to keep everybody away from it. It's a niche party folks, and we're not invited.

Here's an example of the screw-over-process

"The publisher" - Rich corporations talk with banks as they share common interests. They want the faulty product, aka "Laws" that the developer, aka "Government" is delivering to the people to be "better designed" so that the users, aka "The people", may become lost it it's amazing.

"The developer" - The government is paid by the banks to ratify laws and find holes in our bill of rights.

"The user" - The people speak out against these acts because they become conscious to the suppression of freedoms for the profit of the banks. The suppression is a means of silencing the truth, and promoting ignorance into our society through cheap media.

Our very own brothers and sisters are being used as dogs of the military, no, dogs of the banks, to oppress their own people. In a way, it's just as depressing as war itself. This is how good intentions and patriotism turns into a two faced monster, all the while lies are fed to keep the cause just and righteous. Ignorant of the dollar bill behind it.

Though the title was more intended as a attention grab. I will relate to this

It wouldn't be the first time that a nation either destroyed itself through the inside, or did so well that it invalidated individuality. Back in the day i'm sure people warned about the what was happening to Rome, all the while people said nonsense. A couple decades later Rome was filled with famine and disease, and over 90% of the roman empire had died off. That was the beginning of the dark ages. The largest society on earth crushed by the very rules that governed the people..

Corruption is inevitable. It's pretty much a byproduct of humanity. Although I'm still glad to live here because I know many parts of the world are way worse. Besides our government is set up where it can change overtime. Whether that be for the good or the bad is up for the future to decide. So till then I'll just live my life day by day.

there is so much that you can still do to counteract it, mobilizing the inhabitants would be the first step.
Money and industry are only as powerful as the people that back it.
As long as the people keep playing by the rules, showing up for work, paying taxes etc. etc. it's indeed a downward spiral.
Educating people on the directions and risks is only one step in the process of said battle, but without action even this step is useless.

That is true. however right now we are set up so that banks and corporations are buying the government to set up regulations that in turn re-promote the very enterprises that buy the government. It's a large scale kiss ass with banks, corporations, and government. As many know the government is set up in a series of power such as, congress,house of reps, supreme court, and the white house. This is to keep checks and balances so that a dictatorship cannot form. Recently the white house has been able to make reforms which have enabled them to bypass going through congress and the house. So there is a concentrated power now that acts almost close to dictatorship.

This isn't about liberal, or conservative, it's not about democrat or republican, it's about the American people being lied to and used. The only sides to this game are whether you are ignorant to the fact that you are being screwed, or you are conscious to it.

Eventually election adds with be funded by pepsi, and coke products. "This election was brought to you by %*#UU%#"

I may sound like a socialist by the way I speak, but I am in fact a moderate. I support a mixed economy. My idealism probably leans towards socialism, but as a realist, I know that things such as greed, jealousy, indifference, hate, laziness, do not allow for it to work in modern times. We have a interesting system right now that in fact incorporates capitalism AND socialism working together. America is a mixed economy. But any potential it has is being exploited by the top dogs with $$$

Remember capitalism is a fairly new system. America is one of the first to use this. Consider it a beta... Except this beta involves human lives.

This is a "Very short article". It is not to long, you are just lazy on a epic scale, or have not interest in "articles". In which case posting tl;dr has no purpose.

If unions can fund elections then why can't businesses fund elections too ? If your going to ban businesses from funding elections then ban unions too, cause in my state, I see election adds all over the place that are funded by unions. But i has yet to see a single ad brought to me by pepsi or general electric.

Because unions speak for the people. The businesses speak for 1% of the population who are insanely wealthy. They don't only fund elections, they promote their business by controlling media filled with lies, and new laws that screw over the working population. If they spent their funding to help humanity, and not screw it over, then it would be good. But obviously that 1% who holds the worlds power, is not interested in you or me in the slightest.

Should I respect other peoples opinions when 90% of people don't even read posts, or comprehend them.

Anyways 90% of you will not read what I typed, the 10% that do good for you. The 90% of you that saw the % sign and read this you're going to reply out of spite, and fit in with the 10% crowd.

:O


It is because it is 'too' long that I didn't read that drivel.

btw smoking is bad for you

No unions do not speak for you or me, unions only speak for themselves, in my state, union employees get a 600,000 dollar pension when they get to retire at age 30 and while they work they get to make 300,000 dollars a year. Tell me how that benifts you or me. Unions are only interested in making money. They has no interest in my or your well being.

Besides unions are a business, they charge all kinds of membership fees to join and stay a member, that is no different from a business.

Unions used to be about worker rights and shit but now all they are is pollitical money making tools.

And the unions only sponsor canidates who have unions interest in mind, which is no different from businesses sponsering canidates with their interest in mind.

Its no different. so if your going to ban one, ban both

This begs me to ask why you even bother using a forum if you don't respect anything others says, and clearly believe that I wouldn't read what you said. You are basically saying that forums are pointless because everyone ignores each other and yet you bother to post on those very forums, and on top of that, you expect people to ignore your own posts!

Sorry but you are being hypocritical on multiple levels. I can understand you not wanting to read all that I posted. It is long for a average "thread". But as an "Article", it is short. So your subjective view of what is "tl;dr", does not apply for an "Article", but in fact, anything with a certain length.

Nothing to see here for the uninterested, move along.
