Eternal Vigilance: The Cost of Freedom

Nathan Janes writes on Pupaganda.com:

“Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. Even if all are miserable, all will believe themselves happy, because the government will tell them that they are so.— Bertrand Russell, 20th Century Philosopher & Nobel Prize Winner

The most widespread form of slavery today is of the mind. Individuals are controlled and managed by the Establishment on a level that can be hard to recognize. Disinformation is continuously spread by the mass media. Children are schooled by the State yet never receive education. The traditional family is in danger of extinction. Our food and water is full of toxins. We have adapted to incremental changes that amount to significant threats to our personal freedoms, independent thoughts, and quality of life. Largely, the public has become sick and dumb. Our country is in a state of crisis.

The Establishment has colluded to sabotage education in America, producing a population that is unable to think critically and logically. Children are indoctrinated through schooling, trained not to question authority, and rewarded for competing with their peers and doing exactly as they are told. With the prevalence of after and before school programs, many children are now spending up to 12 hours a day at school. Children are taught disrespect for family, and the mind and character of the child is overwhelmingly influenced by the State. The Establishment is controlling tomorrow by schooling the youth of today.

Sexual education classes are often taught before children have even reached puberty. We live in a culture that is ever increasingly encouraging children to have pre-pubertal sex. Children over stimulated sexually before puberty are likely to become hyper-sexualized adults unable to deeply bond with another person. The ‘entertainment’ industry is constantly sending the message of promiscuity through movies and television that capture an audience of young viewers. According to Nielsen television statistics, ‘Desperate Housewives’ was the most popular television show with girls aged 9–12 in 2005. Even the United Nations pushes the agenda, advocating masturbation for children as young as 5 years old in a 2009 report titled “International Guidelines for Sexuality Education.”

Culture is being used as a weapon against the traditional family. The media continuously portrays fathers as pathetic fools celebrated for their stupidity rather than for moral strength and integrity. Women have been portrayed as independent career focused self-obsessed individuals who are sexually aggressive and promiscuous. An atmosphere has been created where breast-feeding is seen as obscene but women are expected and encouraged to expose their breasts in a sexual nature. Clearly excluded from this image are family values and the raising of children. Instead of surrounding the family dinner table for meals and discussions, we surround the television each evening, absorbing the views and ideas it promotes.

    The primary threats to the traditional family are the long hours parents are required to spend at their jobs and the psychological abuse of their bosses.

    • Vox Penii

      In America, one is “required” to work certain hours at a particular job. If someone doesn’t want to work long hours, they face a series of ethical and practical decisions: find another job? work part time? start a business? et cetera.

      The same principle of choices applies to someone suffering psychological abuse from a boss; you have many options: tell your boss to cut it (and risk being fired); file a complaint or lawsuit against the boss; find another job where people value your contributions; et cetera.

        We have a cure for those inequities and clear abuses of power…they call them labor protection/worker’s rights laws…but some people keep screaming Socialism/Communism every time they come up.

  • Vox Penii

    Yes, culture is being used as a weapon against the family, and such plans were created by MARXISTS (i.e., the Frankfurt School) who were reacting in the 1920s and ’30s to the complete failure of Marxism/socialism and who adapted Marxist ideals from economic terms to cultural terms. Disinfo’s rather schizophrenic: on one hand calling for increased government control and centralization, and on the other hand decrying the often disastrous consequences of government control and central planning. But such contradictions are central to modern leftism; as Michel Foucault wrote, “Discourses are tactical elements or blocks operating in the field of force relations; there can exist different and even contradictory discourses within the same strategy.” (History of Sexuality, Vol I, pp. 101-102 as translated by Robt. Hurley)

    Moreover, Bertrand Russell had been given power in England when he turned away from mathematics and towards political advocacy, his homeland would’ve been speaking German circa 1940:

    “[W]hen people operate as ‘public intellectuals,’ expousing ideas and policies to a wider population beyond their professional colleagues, they may or may not carry over intellectual rigor into these more general, more policy-oriented, or more ideologically charged discussions.

    “Bertrand Russell, for example, was both a public intellectual and a leading authority within a rigorous field. But the Bertrand Russell who is relevant here is not the author of landmark treatises on mathematics but the Bertrand Russel who advocated ‘unilateral disarmament” for Britain in the 1930s while Hitler was re-arming Germany. Russell’s advocacy of disarmament extended all the way to ‘disbanding the army and navy and air force” — again, with Hitler rea-arming not far away.”

    Thomas Sowell, “Intellectuals and Society,” (Basic Books, 2010), p. 11

      You make it sound like there were no “weapon(s) against the family” before Marx. You speak in terms of
      polarity between the “failure of Marxism/socialism” and something else you haven’t identified. Should I assume you mean capitalism, democracy or some other polarizing term? Disinformation is rather schizophrenic? How can you type so much and say next to nothing?

      “”[W]hen people operate as ‘public intellectuals,’ expousing ideas and policies to a wider population beyond their professional colleagues, they may or may not carry over intellectual rigor into these more general, more policy-oriented, or more ideologically charged discussions.”

      You might want to ponder those words yourself -oh cut and paster of quotes.
      I ask you: Do you have a point? Can you make it without without relying so heavily on other peoples thoughts…….Please?

      Damn it…I was this close to feeling rather rosy about agreeing with you earlier…then you had to blow it. First you botch Disinfo AGAIN…by imagining the site as a cohesive whole instead of a user based platform for uploading links/articles/etc. There is no coherent theme…just a devotion to providing equal opportunity for the underreported/obscure subjects that site members choose to share.

      When dealing with hundreds of independent people…it might look like schizophrenia…but only if you keep imaging them as being ONE person…in which case the person doing the continual imagining is delusional.

      And number 2…Sowell…again? Bertrand Russel’s devotion to peace after generations of visible abuse of others in the name of conquest in no way invalidates the above statement used in the article. I may disagree with the rest of the article on an endless number of points…but on his worst day, Bertrand Russel could defecate a better pundit/analyst than Sowell has ever been. The addendum to that cited text should have been “Intellectuals and Society: A Complete Outsider’s Perspective”.

        Thanks VoxMagi, that’s a great description of what the nature of disinfo.com is, and we need to think about revising the site description or making it more clear in other ways for newer visitors. There definitely isn’t one voice here or even one ideology espoused on even a daily basis.

        This “Vox” conservation has been helpful for us, thanks again.

          Your welcome…been a big fan of the books for years…as well as a counter culture/alternative media watcher for decades. I was happy to see a site dedicated to a concept, rather than a narrow system of belief. Like the books, the site never seemed to be about establishing what “is” or “is not”…but rather about at least making clear that more than one possibility exists…which is something the world’s vested media interests rarely bother with anymore. In an era of 24/7 spin and high powered disinfo aimed to polarize and captivate…a place like this is needed more than ever.

    Pretty much all but the fighting, “angry” tone of this resonates with me. I submit to you that this so called “fight” is also accounted for in this clash between these entities we create (economy, politics, culture, love…) and ourselves. We are expected to either comply or fight. But it is possible to do neither.

    I agree with everything on this except the “traditional family” part. It’s no longer necessary – and in fact isn’t traditional at all. If you want to see what a real traditional human family is, look at the hunter gatherer society of the Mundurucu. When you get to agrarian societies, the norm became polygamy – which is again, traditional in the literal sense of the word but not in the definition above. In other words, the “traditional” family archetype is just another thing some people made up and decided to deify as the solution to the world’s ills. Of course, its not – one only needs to look to the 60′s to see what the rigorous enforcement of “traditional american values” from the 50′s will do. When you hold kids down and force them to conform to your values, they’ll take lots of drugs and sleep with random people. Hell, the 90′s were the same thing to a lesser extent. It’s why America bounces back and forth between an conservative republic and a liberal democracy every 10 or 15 years. That’s the NEXT generation bitching about the last one. It’s healthy, because generally speaking, you *are* “smarter” (or at least more knowledgeable, as long as you’re not retarded) than your parents, just as they were smarter than theirs.

    Of course this is all moot if you don’t believe in history, sociology, anthropology, or reason. Also, don’t ever ask someone to think critically and then expand your thesis with an erroneous and biased conclusion. It just adds insult to your self-inflicted injury. YOU are the one who wishes to control and enslave. Also, your children are already sexually active, and I heard they’re sexting all over the interwebs.

    I’m hoping for asteroids that fall from the sky, followed my tidal waves and millions of dumbfounded dipshits. Learn to swim, learn to swim, learn to swim! Mother is coming to clean up our room, and I hope that you all can survive without your gadgets, lawyers, autos, and designer jeans. I’m fucking going to go live with bigfoot! You’re right, this society blows. I don’t know who I hate more, the Hitlers of the world or the pacifists who hold out their hand and offer the bully some wine, cheese, and friendship. I say if we really want to change things, for one day, everyone stop going to work, stop paying taxes, stop driving cars(stop using oil), stop watching TV, stop doing what you normally do that supports this fucked up society. See what happens tomorrow morning, will it still be there? Yes, thousands upon thousands of stupid people will die, and yes it will be sad, but that is what we get for letting things get away from us. Short sighted younger brother needs his hand slapped. We need to learn a hard lesson of self responsibility, we made a mess now it’s time to clean it up. Get out of your car, stop supporting the doomsday machine, stop talking and postulating about how we are a bunch of sheep. Only sheep complain about being sheep and then continue to eat grass.

  • Liam_McGonagle

    All very true. The basic critique, in my mind, is that the culture of dependency foisted on us by the current big corporate economic paradigm. We’re seduced us into becoming stupid and self-indulgent sheep, fattened up for the fleecing down at the mall.

    Thank God I was born to two parents who hated each other so much that I was almost literally forced to make measured evaluations of their respective crazy racialist claims from Day #1. Pity the poor fat W.A.S.P. who knows no such challenge to wake him from his torpor.
