The Natural Selection of American Citizens

Politics / US Politics Mar 28, 2013 - 01:00 PM GMT

By: Jeff_Berwick

Politics

Fabian de Silva writes: Recently I read about a poll, which I believe was from Gallup, that asked if the president can target US citizens for assassination without due process on US soil. Seventy-eight percent of the respondents (all Americans) said, “Sure it’s fine with me if the president wants to murder me with a drone.” How nice to have nearly 8 out of 10 Americans be so altruistic, apparently believing that the president must have some valuable reason to murder them, so it’s okay with them to sacrifice their lives in the name of protection against terrorists, or something, I guess. It’s so noble for so many Americans to valiantly offer up their lives as martyrs to the president if their deaths will keep them safer, or something, I guess (72 virgins?).


After all, the question was not “Can the president target US citizens for assassination without due process on US soil, except for you?” No, it was a blanket killing request by the president to kill any American, including you. These polls are supposed to be representative samples of Americans. If that’s really true, out of every ten people you see, eight are blissfully awaiting the president to bless them with a drone attack.

These are the same people who are clueless to the existence of various legislation such as the NDAA, the military commissions act of 2006, and the Patriot Act, among others, that legalize the indefinite detention of terror suspects, that eliminate habeas corpus and give the prosecutor the power to incarcerate someone AFTER acquittal, as some examples. They think that applies only to terrorists (are you too, or will you be, a terror suspect?). They also don’t know or care about the executive orders Bush, Obama, and other presidents have signed, designed, in one way or another, to implement martial law in Amerika if Americans resist the tyranny.

How’d Americans get that way? Can’t Americans think? No they can’t. They are unable to think critically about anything. They will go along with anything, they will do whatever they’re told, no matter how absurd. There is no cognition, no critical thinking, and they’ve never been exposed to any comprehensive philosophy to guide their lives.

What lives? That’s the question. What kind of lives do these Americans have that are so great that they’re pleased if the president notices them with a drone. These people are lemmings, secluding themselves in their own homes, working their same daily routine, and believing that everything is normal. They pay no attention to the gradual destruction of their rights, freedoms, or liberties, or any of the institutions like courts (the biggest joke of all) which collude with the government criminals.

They are completely unaware of the significance of the destruction of the rule of law or due process and how that affects their lives. They have been so brainwashed to believe in self-loving Amerikan exceptionalism, meaning that Amerika is not bound by the same rules as others so torture, kidnapping, forced servitude, deportations, imprisonment without trial, assassination, renditions, and the bombing of civilians anywhere in the world is completely normal for Amerika due to its objective superiority, and wouldn’t be used against them.

These Americans not only do not want to notice what’s going on around them, they refuse to entertain any discussion about it. Within their routines, which keep them within a 25-mile radius of their homes, they are unable to see any difference between the America of previous years and Amerika today. All they can think about is what’s on television. You call that living?

What’s going to happen when the economy collapses and the dollar becomes worthless? What do you think will happen in Amerika when Amerikans lose their routines, lose their savings, lose everything including their personal and financial safety nets? That already happened in new Orleans after hurricane Katrina, didn’t it? Let’s look at that real-life example and see if we can figure out how being blissfully ignorant is going to help you when America becomes a gigantic, post-hurricane-Katrina Superdome.

Americans will be sitting in their homes with nothing to eat since the grocery store shelves were completely empty within three days and with no or little potable water; afraid to leave their homes to be murdered by the military or the police or vigilante groups foraging for food and water. And all the while these Americans will be waiting for the government to come rescue them, just like the helpless in the New Orleans Superdome. Six days after hurricane Katrina conditions in the Superdome were intolerable, people were dying from dehydration, and the helpless were still waiting for the government to act.

Ten days after Hurricane Katrina I found an entry point from Jefferson Parish on North River Road into New Orleans. (Neighboring Jefferson Parish had blocked all of the exits from New Orleans into Jefferson, not wanting New Orleans residents in their parish.) The entry point was manned by the National Guard. I was told by the guard on duty that she though couldn’t stop me from entering, I couldn’t exit from where I entered, and once in new Orleans I could be arrested and put into the Superdome. When I asked another guard why so much drama, he didn’t know. He told me the National Guard was Uncle Sam’s mushroom crop, kept in the dark and fed a lot of shit (his exact words).

Inside the city I had to bluff my way past a couple arbitrary, ad hoc, roving National Guard checkpoints (I said I’m a contractor and passed right through). They didn’t know what they were doing either. Just filling uniforms and following orders. I drove first through the upscale uptown area where occupants who stayed behind to protect their property were being arrested and cuffed while their firearms were being confiscated and then they were released back into their homes, defenseless. There were private, heavily armed security guards probably from Blackwater or something similar, providing security in front of certain buildings in town. The private security guards weren’t disarmed by the police, but the residents were.

There were many small sticks of armed police and even armed firemen wandering around town, supposedly checking for survivors, but they appeared more to me as simply creating a tense environment reeking of testosterone. They were patrolling like they were expecting a firefight, instead of just knocking on doors. The house I was there to check was next to the French quarter on high ground. There was no electricity or natural gas (for the stove), but water was still flowing, albeit very weakly. I wouldn’t trust its potability without boiling it for at least 30 minutes and with a little iodine added, but the helpless in the Superdome didn’t have to die from dehydration like some of them did except that they weren’t allowed to leave the dome. And you’re waiting for the government to come rescue you??? The government was the reason everything was so messed up, eerie and uncomfortable, despite the fact that I was armed. You can expect something worse in your future.

This is a quote by someone who explains it better than I do: “Most Americans cannot possibly fathom an America where the economy has collapsed, the dollar is valueless, and food is so expensive that it can’t be had by the majority of the populace. They can’t imagine any situation that would require the deployment of military soldiers into their towns and cities. None of them realize that the President himself is now creating kill lists and justifications for why American citizens can be targeted by military drone strikes without charge or trial. The whole world will be turned upside down and devolve into violence and bloodshed. The government knows this. Homeland security knows this. The military knows this. Any student of history knows this. We are now being desensitized to the response should it ever come to pass.”

Or maybe you think you can just get some property out in a secluded area and live off the land and be safe. Eustice Conway of Turtle Island did that in Boone County, North Carolina for 33 years. In fact, he had a 14-month training program for people to come live with him and learn how to become self-sufficient, too. As soon as the government criminals found out about him just the other day, they appeared with a search warrant and began issuing citations. You’re not allowed to be anything but a victim of the nanny state if you remain in Amerika. The welfare state has no ethics, no doctrine, no nothing. It is only about power and implemented through force. You will submit.

So there’s no hope if you remain in Amerika. Those of you who read this letter because you are going to be here, you need to understand and embrace this. There’s no hope so get past that. And understand what it means. It means there’s no hope for you, for your family, or for your area confined by artificially constructed lines on a map. So the only possibility for change, the only possibility to improve your situation amid such hopelessness lies within you, yourself. Only YOU have the power and ability to help you. Only YOU can do anything about what’s going to happen to you when the adverse events occur. If you don’t have the courage to live your convictions, nothing will change, and all you will ever do is sit around and talk about being free, but you don’t live it. Or you can just be a horrified spectator and hope the end is quick and painless (how about a drone strike?). Leave Amerika and live well, peacefully, safely and prosper.
