The Truth About Independence Day

in philosophy •  12 days ago 

People who are numb to truth celebrate “Independence Day.” It’s not about independence at all. It’s about groveling to a mystical abstraction called the nation state. It’s about reveling in ones own subjugation. It’s about popping fireworks, drinking beer, and hallucinating freedom.

Sure, a symbol called “America” broke off from a symbol called “Great Britain,” but in the end, no human being was freed from anything. Allegedly, people were supposed to be given more freedom, but all they got was more servitude.

Nowadays, the nation state called America is an evil enterprise. Politicians enslave the people with a myriad of incomprehensible laws while ordering soldiers to arbitrarily murder people overseas. It’s a disgusting dance of depredation and damnation, and people celebrate it with great pomp and circumstance.

Why? Why are people so amused by their own suffering and bondage? Why are they amused by warfare and bloodshed? Why do they idolize violence and viciousness?

Tragically, most people—over a great length of time—have become so conditioned to their pitiful situation that they praise and worship it like a sacred cow.

It’s abysmal. The good news is that more people are waking up to realize the truth. They are unlearning all the lies they have been taught to regurgitate like platitudinous poetry. They are seeing beyond the smoke and mirrors of maniacal statism. This is good. It’s my hope that so many wake up that we can actually free humankind for real this time. It’s my hope we can abolish government and rid ourselves of political enslavement once and for all.

Blessed are the abolitionists.

Why are people so amused by their own suffering and bondage?

Making choices for oneself is very scary, so people delegate that responsibility to Uncle Sam so they don't have to worry about decision making.

Why are they amused by warfare and bloodshed?

Because my team is better than your team, obviously.

Why do they idolize violence and viciousness?

Probably because they are insecure about themselves and resort to bullying by proxy to feel superior.

If everyone was well-educated and had good social games such a situation might make sense. Unfortunately, not all sheep play the rational game. I've played games against emotional game. Those games are unpredictable as hell and often you get screwed by the stupid guy. Having social contracts is good as long as everyone has the option of opting in and out of them more freely.
