Our Enslavement and Puppet Government

Regarding the issue of who owns us, this George Carlin video sums things up quite well. The producers at PuppetGov.com, with depressing background music, have done a fine job of illuminating just how dire the situation is. I recommend checking out their other videos as well. All are compelling in their own way.

Hopefully we’ll wake up soon.

  1. I had not seen this, but unfortunately I am a firm believer in what it says. On top of all of it, the one medium where the free exchange of ideas is still possible (you’re looking at it) is now also under attack. we must all contnue to support net neutrality, and it’s back in the news today.

  2. Exactly. And still I try…

    Also, the net won’t stay neutral. Enjoy it while you can and start stockpiling the hardware to broadcast your pirate signal. The corporations are coming and there isn’t a damn thing you can do about it. Like death and taxes, it’s NOT something the fountain of youth and a good accountant can remedy. You’re on your own. Good luck…

  3. This is one of the few areas where George and I agree. I think his epistemology is fundamentally sound when he says that the powers-that-be want to keep you on the level of a mindless boob. Absolutely right about choices in the political system too. The deck was stacked long before we voted for a president, long before we participated in the primaries, long before…. I also think that this generally explains not only the ignorance of Americans concerning politics, but their apathy as well. After all, there’s no point playing a game which is rigged against you. Ironically, in choosing not to play, we still influence the game. Damned if you do; damned if you don’t. Either way, we’re all screwed.

  4. I think the most powerful line is when he says, “It’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.”

    I wish people would wake up to the fact that this reality is not simply the fault of the “Wingnuts” or the “Moonbats,” they’re both in on it.

    Why is that so hard for people to accept?

  5. I think part of the reason it’s difficult is that the culprit is in the mirror. I think that it’s also hard to accept that the average American is almost powerless to do anything of consequence about it. Facing those two truths is pretty damned scary, fairlane.

  6. Hey Mr. F,
    I just wanted to let you know there’s some time sensitive content in the queue. I was going to publish it this morning, but I was afraid that Frederick’s post just went up. Didn’t want to tread on him, ya know.
    Thanks and sorry ’bout posting this on your thread Fred.
    Peace

  7. I just stopped by for a quick hello and Happy Valentines Day.

    That video says it all and after I watched it, I’m ready to move out of this country. Really…this is seriously disgusting. No election is going to solve this. Too much despair to think about …

  8. George Carlin is one of the all-time greats and he’s always relevant.

    Bite down hard and make the move.
