7 Signs You May be a Victim of Statism


Synchronicity is the word! From the previous post on personal freedoms, an immediate sighting of this article by Gary ‘Z’ McGeeWaking Times , published by ‘The Mind Unleashed

“The State is the name of the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly it lies; and this lie slips from its mouth: I, the state, am the people.” Friedrich Nietzsche

Truth: the pill everyone wants, but just can’t seem to swallow. The truth behind the vicious lies of statism and its cultish tendencies happens to be one of those jagged little pills that people can’t seem to swallow. Statism has become the most all-pervasive ism of them all. It is the predominant world religion. Almost every country practices it. It is, in fact, the worst form of religion: a deadly cult. It meets every single one of the characteristics associated with cultic groups according to Janja Lalich, Ph.D. & Michael D. Langone, Ph.D. Influence and control lie at the center of the state. More than likely we were all born into such a state, complete with all its commandments (laws), deities (founding fathers), common prayer (pledge of allegiance), sacred symbols and texts (flags and constitutions), and places of indoctrination (schools). Like Voltaire said, “Religion began when the first conman met the first fool.” And so it is with the cult of the state. But there are other options besides being a conman or a fool. At any rate, here are seven signs you may be a victim of the cult of statism.

1.) You believe you need to be ruled:

I was not designed to be forced. I will breathe after my own fashion. Let us see who is the strongest. –Thoreau

2.) You display excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to the state:

“What good fortune for governments that the people do not think.” –Adolf Hitler

3.) You never question, doubt, or practice dissent for fear of punishment:

“The supreme mystery of despotism, its prop and stay, is to keep men in a state of deception, and cloak the fear by which they must be held in check, so that they will fight for their servitude as if for salvation.” –Baruch Spinoza

4.) You’ve been conditioned to believe that the ends justify militaristic means:

He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.” –Albert Einstein

5.) You are inflicted with feelings of shame or guilt used as methods of control:

“Once you have enslaved one generation, most parents will almost inevitable resist the freedom of the next generation, out of guilt and shame about their own surrender.” –Stefan Molyneux

6.) Your cultish state is preoccupied with making money:

“It is no coincidence that a century of total war coincided with a century of central banking.” – Ron Paul

7.) You have given into the elitism of the state:

“The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret in tyranny is in keeping them ignorant.” –Maximilien Robespierre

These are just the sub-headings, which, in the source article, are followed by explanatory and informative comment. Not everyone’s ‘cup of tea’, but if you are interested in knowledge and understanding, here is a wealth of learning.

I am impressed by all this article but especially like this part

Heroism at command, senseless brutality, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.” –Albert Einstein
