MEGATRENDS: Unplug Yourself    
 Unplug Yourself3 comments

Some people argue "But Life is great! The death rate has dropped in the last 40 years dramatically! People are living much longer! Clean water is available to more people now than ever! We have more choice about what to consume then we ever did!"

Well guess what? That's quantity. People live to 70 or 80, but they don't stop working until 65. That's roughly 47 years of work for 15 years of getting by off of a social security that's dwindling fast. And what happens as you get older? That's right. You become ill from all of today's pollution and corruptness. Doctor's bills pile up for pills with side effects so you have to buy more pills to combat the side effects of the pills to combat the side effects of the pills you bought. And that lasts until you're so old your kids drop you into an assisted living center (doublespeak for "old folks home") and you die alone in your bed, covered in shit.

And do you want to know what makes that water so clean? Chlorine. That's right, the element used in trench warfare in WW1 to kill soldiers has been put in everyone's drinking water to "Purify" it (it saves time and money). Oh but don't worry, they also put Florine in there to to keep your teeth healthy. Florine is another element that you are not supposed to ingest, on account of its brain-damaging properties.

Oh but the choices we have today- that freedom to choose what plane to fly in? That freedom to choose what car to buy? That freedom to eat Capitan Crunch or Fruity Pebbles? Bullshit. Companies are merging faster than ever. Ingredients are the same in most products. Corporations own multiple assets of the same "choice product" without your knowledge.

Yeah, life's great. If you enjoy being a zombie. The people that have the ideas about how great life is, are plugged in. They aren't even aware of the prison that we are all in. A prison that cannot be seen in any tangible way. You have two choices in life today: you can either choose to conform to mainstream society, work in a job you don't want to pay of college loans and house payments for the rest of your life, with enough money left over to buy overpriced garbage, or the choice to starve to death. Freedom. Yeah right.

How can you combat this? In a world where the government keeps control of their people by fear, and companies decide what you want, how can you rise against? Simple. Unplug yourself. What do I mean? I mean stop living what is now "The American dream".

Stop following society's rules. Turn the television off and quit caring about who wins American Idol. Stop caring about celebrities lifestyles, and for the love of Christ, stop staring at commercials like a robot.

Next time you see a poster advertising ANYTHING about consuming or paying money, or watching t.v., scribble something on it. Scribble something about killing television or rejecting society, or better yet, black out anyone's face on the poster. Give them a goatee.

Say your thoughts out loud. Next time your in line anywhere, verbally ask why there isn't another teller available, why another checkout line hasn't opened, or why you have to be behind the yellow line.

Stop giving a shit about what cool is. Stop buying name brand products. Stop buying clothes with the Company's logo plastered on the front. Your essentially paying the company money to advertise THEIR shit. Remember that it doesn't really matter if your hair isn't like that dumb bitch in the commercial.

STOP going to a fucking gym to workout. STOP buying into all the weight loss fads. Yes, almost half of America is overweight and yes, we are the fattest country in the world right now, but, you can do your own push ups and sit ups in your own damn house. You can run around the block for God's sake, so why pay a damn gym money?

Realize that although cannabis is illegal, alcohol is legal, and actually causes the date rape, car collisions, and overdoses that all the "above the influence" ads try to pin on marijuana. So don't buy into the commercial with a bunch of people partying and getting drunk. No, don't smoke if you don't think its right, but realize that you are being lied to.

Don't listen to what some celebrity says. Just don't.

Pesticides are not a good thing. Malnourished chickens are not a good thing. Hormone injected force fed cows are NOT a good thing. Quit worrying about "evil" China and its lead content and start to realize that McDonalds and every other fast food joint has been poisoning you for years.

Don't trust CNN to deliver you real news. everything on CNN is fabricated or irrelevant. Look for tiny snippets of real news on the internet, newspapers, and 'zines.

They say you can't make a difference. That's what they want you to think.

is to be highly recommended! :-) especially from TV, advertising and the media.

Another tip is developing and relying on your instincts, gut feelings, run all you observe through them before deciding what is 'truth' or not.

Nice article, thanks for posting it.

You are very welcome susannahbe. Thankyou for reading it.

Memorizing politics of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought of, though, somehow - Bob Dylan

Holiday in the Sun

A cheap holiday in other people's misery

I don't wanna holiday in the sun
I wanna go to the new Belsen
I wanna see some history
'cause now I got a reasonable economy

Now I got a reason, now I got a reason,
Now I got a reason and I'm still waiting
Now I got a reason, now I got a reason to be waiting
The Berlin Wall

Set-surround sound in a two inch wall
I was waiting for the Communist call
I didn't ask for sunshine and I got World War Three
I'm looking over the wall
And they're looking at me

Now I got a reason, now I got a reason
Now I got a reason and I'm still waiting
Now I got a reason, now I got a reason to be waiting
The Berlin Wall

They're staring all night and they're staring all day
I had no reason to be here at all
And now I've gotta reason it's no real reason
And I'm waiting
The Berlin Wall

I gotta go over the Berlin wall
I don't understand this bit at all
I gotta go over the wall
I've gotta go over the Berlin Wall, I'm gonna go over the Berlin Wall!

There's too much paranoia
There's too many closets i went in before
And now I got a reason, it's no real reason to be waiting

The Berlin Wall

I jumped right over the wall
I don't understand this bit at all
This is like a movie show
Cheap dialogue, cheap essential scenery
I gotta go over the wall, I wanna go over the Berlin Wall
Wave all day, we love the Berlin Wall
I don't understand this bit at all
I jumped right over the Berlin Wall
People wave all day, come over the Berlin Wall
I don't understand this bit at all
Please don't be waiting for me

-Sex Pistols 1977

The buyin' power of the proletariat's gone down
Money's gettin' shallow and weak - Bob Dylan

"Possibly Gilman ought not to have studied so hard. Non-Euclidean calculus and quantum physics are enough to stretch any brain; and when one mixes them with folklore and tries to trace a strange background of multi-dimensional reality behind the ghoulish hints of the Gothic tales and the wild whispers of the chimney-corner, one can hardly expect to be wholly free from mental tension."
- HP Lovecraft, The Dreams in the Witch House

"'Colonel' [Edward Mandell] House [Ed. Note: a Freemason] was [the] front man for the international banking fraternity. He manipulated President Woodrow Wilson like a puppet. Wilson called him [i.e., 'Colonel' House] 'my alter ego'. House played a major role in creating the Federal Reserve System, passing the graduated income tax, and getting America into World War I. ['Colonel'] House's influence over Wilson is an example that in the world of super politics the real rulers are NOT always the ones the public sees." – Gary Allen (author)

((Ed. Comment: House was involved in "making" both Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt presidents of the USA .))
