You can ignore reality, but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.
— Ayn Rand
Here are the consequences of ignoring reality
If you are not there to help others, others will not be there to help you when you need help.
Keep doing what you are doing and history will repeat millennia of misery.
Forced charity has never been sustainable
Forced welfare is NOT welfare. It is theft by force, fear and violence. Real charity is to love your neighbor as yourself. Learn to spot the difference.
And 2000 years ago Plutarch said “It is truly said that the first destroyer of the liberties of a people is he who gave them bounties and largesse. “
2150 years ago Greek Historian Polybius wrote The Histories Of the Roman Republic 220-146 BC, Book 6, section 9:
“And hence when by their foolish thirst for reputation they have created among the masses an appetite for gifts and the habit of receiving them, democracy in its turn is abolished and changes into a rule of force and violence. For the people, having grown accustomed to feed at the expense of others and to depend for their livelihood on the property of others, as soon as they find a leader who is enterprising but is excluded from the houses of office by his penury, institute the rule of violence; and now uniting their forces massacre, banish, and plunder, until they degenerate again into perfect savages and find once more a master and monarch.”
In 1770, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, in his book Cycles of Democracy, had this comparison with the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:
‘A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.’
Six years after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to rule on the constitutionality of Social Security, they agreed to use the common understanding of who qualifies for government welfare. In the 1941 Supreme Court case Edwards v. California at 314 US 160 at 172 , the legal term “indigent person” was given a very limited scope:
“…must be taken to include only persons who are presently destitute of property and without resources to obtain the necessities of life, and who have no relatives or friends able and willing to support them.”
In other words, forced charity is only legal to save the life of a pauper. Freeloaders cannot qualify. If you applied for a SS number, you confessed that you cannot manage your own life.
Before the Constitution was constituted under the Articles of Confederation, paupers had no rights of citizenship. They had the same rights as a fugitive. And it remains true today that paupers (those with a SSN), have no more rights than a fugitive.
Welfare entitlement is available only to save the life of the applicant. There is no Constitutional authority for individual welfare. But Treasury funds can be used to save a life. SS Cards can only be issued to one who is an “applicant for or recipient of benefits under any program financed in whole or in part by Federal funds” according to Title 42 US Code 405(c)(2)(B)(i).
Lose your illusions.
You are dependent on the agenda of others
You are completely dependent on those who control the foundations that you rely on. This is the very definition of Stockholm Syndrome. Just like the early Christians, and today’s Amish, you will need to join a like-minded community to provide the foundations of your own making, without reliance on “the powers that be.”
Your foundations are all provided by the Globalists. Jobs, food, healthcare, energy, banking, justice, education, travel. All these are controlled by regulations of the Powers That Be to justify their “requirement” for safety. But safety is not our heritage.
“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”— Ben Franklin quote inscribed on a plaque in the stairwell of the Statute of Liberty
We hold the truth that we are created equal.
Equals will not salute other equals.
Equals will not bow down to other equals.
Equals will never swear oaths to other equals.
“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. … Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”— Samuel Adams speech at the State House of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia (1 August 1776) Sam was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, cousin of President John Adams, and an activist at the Boston Tea Party
Obedience to authority?
“Those who already walk submissively will say there is no cause for alarm. But submissiveness is not our heritage. The First Amendment was designed to allow rebellion to remain as our heritage. … “— US Supreme Court, Laird v. Tatum, 408 US 1, page 28
