The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

"Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war." - - Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia - Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

Maybe just Maybe ideas of the past 'may need to be re-examined'

AN EXISTENTIAL CRISIS IN AMERICA

Maybe just Maybe ideas of the past 'may need to be re-examined'



As the esteemed essayist and philosopher Ralph Wald Emerson once wrote in an essay entitled “Intellect,” “God offers to every mind its choice between truth and repose. Take which you please – you can never have both.”

Rarely in our nation’s recent political history has Emerson’s instructive insight seemed more apropos. The country faces, on the one hand, a sense of self-satisfaction, having twice elected a black president who remains extremely popular among a large cross-section of the electorate.

Those opposing the Obama legacy have found themselves locked into a stalemate of both anger and resentment that has found its expression in deep internal conflicts within the Republican Party. House Speaker Paul Ryan, who currently serves as chairman of the Republican National Convention to take place this July in Cleveland, has gone as far as to express publicly his doubt about supporting the party’s putative nominee. Trump’s supporters, including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, have bitterly chastised Ryan (and others who have expressed similar doubts) and promised retribution at the polls.

Democrats looking across the aisle at the acrimonious debate have hardly restrained their expressions of smug glee. As commenters on the various social media sites have noted – it is the Republican Party’s own fault for failing to stop the rise of such a controversial and potentially divisive candidate.

The nominee himself has no such reservations about challenging not only Republican dogma, but settled American foreign policy and economic policy. He has openly flirted with restructuring the U.S. debt – saying, in essence, that if America enters an economic downturn, it would be an opportunity to “make a deal.” Trump has also challenged long-standing U.S. policy towards NATO, questioning the ongoing need for such a defense pact with Europe in light of the demise of the Soviet Union, citing the fact that the U.S. is footing the military cost of commitments in far-flung regions with little or no discernible benefit to Americans. He has both opposed and supported raising the nation’s minimum wage, before most recently punting the issue off to the states themselves – saying “let the states decide.”

While likely Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton has largely campaigned on the solidifying and extending the Obama legacy on Obamacare, NATO, the minimum wage and social issues – i.e., more of the same – Trump has offered something that sounds different, but that at times lacks coherency or any decipherable set of unifying principles. His message thus far has been largely aimed at a Republican establishment that has not only upheld Obamacare twice (under a conservative Supreme Court) but more importantly failed to advance a conservative legislative agenda despite holding majorities in both the House and Senate.

And so here we are as a nation at this juncture, caught in a maelstrom between truth and repose. Liberals find creature comfort in a party that continues to advance a social agenda that squares with liberal orthodoxy – homosexual marriage, transgender rights and a legislated minimum wage. Republicans are dealing with a potential nominee who seems to believe that everything, even core conservative principles, is up for renegotiation.

As a largely conservative party, Republicans find Trump’s infinite oscillation around economic and social issues to be deeply disconcerting and potentially disruptive. It is difficult for many in the party to imagine a path towards reclaiming “greatness” – as the popular Trump campaign slogan urges – without reverting to the core set of principles that many see as having made America great in the first place: family values, fiscal discipline, small government and individual liberty.

Emerson further asserts, while repose gains us “rest, commodity, and reputation,” it tends to “shut the door of truth.” Here is the key point around which the current U.S. election is evolving. We cannot rest on our laurels, or seek to find accommodation in old modes of thinking while at the same time trying to fundamentally restore our nation to greatness. We cannot undergo a social experiment of rebuilding while at the same time clinging to decaying ideas, social structures and political institutions. We can either have truth or repose – but not both. The truth we are describing here does not refer to the specific platforms or claims any of the candidates – after all, political speech is given to wild exaggeration by its very nature. What we are referring to is the process by which we arrive at our choices in the first place. What’s working and what’s not? Why or why not? These are questions that those of us who do not have the option to engage in smug self-adulation are asking ourselves.

In a sense, we are entering an existential crisis in American society in which it has become clear that America’s new greatness may no longer entail being the referee of global geopolitics. The world turns, time and events advance without our consent or control, and ideas adapted to bygone eras may need to be re-examined in light of today’s realities. And while the search for truth may be uncomfortable, it is the most stabilizing and conservative principle we can call upon to aid us in adapting to an increasingly turbulent world.
