What Do We Do? By John Kaminski It's not just rhetoric — we need
a revolution to survive! These are impossible questions, ones which I
cannot answer. Perhaps you can. What do we do when the very people
supposed to be protecting us are actually harming us? Robbing us,
poisoning us, deliberately asphyxiating us, putting things in our water
that make us docile, giving us foods and medicines that make us sick,
and in general preventing us from living our lives in what we believe is
a normal manner. What do we do when the society in which we live
prevents us from being moral? Or from telling the truth as we see it?
What do we do when our society encourages us not question statements
that we know in our hearts to be lies? What do we do when our TV and
newspapers tell us lies but insist we should regard this information as
truth? What do we do when the vast majority of people in our society
accepts these lies as truths and ridicules us when we call these
statements lies? What do we do when we have a legitimate grievance and
can't get it redressed without bribing somone? What do we do when we
can't trust our courts? How are we to respond when we learn that a
private company controls all of our money? Or that the government has
the right to poison your baby before you take her home from the
hospital? What do we do when the leader of our country, the occupant
of the most prestigious office in the world, is a pill-popping
psychopath with no discernible personality whose favorite hobby is
killing large numbers of people, either by signing death warrants to
execute mentally defective miscreants or ordering airstrikes against
innocent women and children tens of thousands of miles away? What do
we do when all those around him, including the so-called political
opposition, seem to agree with everything he says and does, and
otherwise act as if this demented demagogue pathologically predisposed
to obliterating the whole world is actually a normal human being? It
used to be that the American way dictated if you didn't like the way the
government worked, you could go to the polls and vote for an opposition
candidate who promised to change things. What do we do when all the
candidates who are running for every office are all basically saying the
same thing and endorsing all the harmful things that are being done?
What do we do when the concept of one person, one vote has been
completely destroyed by computerized voting machines that no one can
verify, except the companies that own them, which are themselves owned
by rich white men who support the man who got the votes that no
independent agency is able to authenticate? What do we do we when
can't trust the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, or
the medicines we take to make us well? How are we to regard these
efforts to criminalize vitamins and other health foods when the doctors
we go to prescribe medicines that are less effective than those
beneficial substances they have worked so hard to ban? What do we do
when our nation decides to go into a state of permanent war, choosing
hapless countries to attack and then obliterating them, then fleeces its
own citizens with devious legislation that funnels billions of dollars
to companies to reconstruct what we've just destroyed for reasons we
later learn were transparent lies? How are we to regard such a country,
such a group of men who would do such a thing to their fellow human
beings? And how are we to regard ourselves for believing and
supporting such insane and inhuman policies? What do we do when the
vast majority of American citizens refuses to even recognize that
anything is out of whack? What do we do when government employees
tinker with diseases in a laboratory, and then suddenly the whole
country is stricken with a new kind of flu, one that kills children in
Colorado and keeps everyone coughing indefinitely all across the nation?
Why is it when you look up epidemics in history, you find that most of
the recent ones occurred after vaccination campaigns? Why do you feel so
uneasy when they tell you to get a flu shot? Or, if you're in the
military, when they tell you to get an anthrax shot? Why does the
American government seem so intent on destroying the lives of its own
soldiers? Why do American soldiers seem so willing to shoot innocent
women and children? Iraq or Afghanistan were never threats to America.
Why do our children so eagerly shoot those people down like dogs? Is
that what we really taught them to do in our humble homes? Is it? Are
you absolutely sure we didn't? If we didn't, why do they? What do we
do when you can't get any public officials to comment on why there are
all these strange cloud markings in the sky — some call them
"chemtrails" — and so many people are sick with respiratory
problems? Or perhaps it's the soot in the air, in increased amounts
these days because air quality rules have been rolled back by the
President who was elected on the basis of votes we were not allowed to
recount. What do we do when they tell us we have to rearrange our
lives because of the threat of "terror"? These rearrangements, at least
these days, are primarily based on the precedents set by the "terror"
attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, in which many thousands lost their lives in
New York City and Washington, D.C. These "terrorists" have "terrorized"
the world ever since, causing us to go to war in Afghanistan, Iraq and
elsewhere. Who are these "terrorists? " Why has no evidence ever been
presented linking them to 9/11? Why was the Afghanistan war planned
before 9/11 if it was blamed on 9/11? Why was the war in Iraq blamed on
weapons of mass destruction and connection to 9/11 when it was planned
long before 9/11? Why didn't the government ever catch those responsible
for the anthrax attacks, especially after the trail of suspicion led
right back to government employees? Why didn't anybody in Congress read
the legislation before voting for the initial Patriot Act? Why has
nobody protested the nullification of our Constitutional rights?
Especially when the so-called "terror" threatening our security is
clearly a behind-the-scenes construction of our own intelligence
agencies. What do we do when the Vice President brings all the top
oilmen in the country to his office to create a new energy policy, then
they all fleece the citizens of California of billions of dollars in
energy overcharges, the principal energy broker presides over the
biggest bankruptcy in U.S. history and is not prosecuted, a
well-connected actor is elected governor of California to stop efforts
to recover this stolen energy money, and the Vice President continues to
draw a salary from the same company that receives billions of dollars in
lucrative reconstruction contracts for rebuilding Iraq, which is the
country we bombed on the basis of lies that were based on the "terror"
that caused 9/11, for which they refuse to provide the evidence? When
you wave your American flag today, do you realize it means you are
endorsing mass murder and exploitation all over the world? Do you
realize the reasons for this demonic behavior are all lies? Do you
realize America creates wars to stimulate profits, and has done this
consistently for more than a hundred years? How come so many of our
own military servicepeople are returning from Iraq with really strange
diseases? How come we use radioactive ammunition when we know it has
made thousands sick? How come we give soldiers shots to prevent diseases
but we won't tell them what is in those shots? How come the military
doesn't desert when they learn all these things, and how come parents
can be proud when they bury their children who died in a war that was
fought for reasons we now know to have been lies? What do we do when
America moves all its best jobs overseas because of the cheaper labor?
What are Americans supposed to do about that? Start their own businesses
and keep their products here at home? Hmmm. What do we do when we
can't trust the cops? Whom do we call for help then? When we see our
president committing obvious moral and legal crimes and then lying about
them, whom do we call to have him arrested? What do we do when we
mention this to opposition candidates and they don't answer us? We can
no longer afford to support a government that does not support its
people! But what do we do? We need to begin meeting with small groups
of like-minded people who are as aghast as we are to find out how to
begin processes of how to arrest and prosecute our criminal leaders.
This will be very difficult. It's not just a matter of canvassing
social clubs and political parties. Both categories are largely
brain-dead and irrelevant, mindless flag wavers interested more in
eating and drinking than in actual freedom. Nor is it productive to
stage mass rallies with fractured focuses, where the main message of
fading freedom is lost amid a confusing welter of conflicting passions.
No, this requires the creation of new groups, ones devoted to real
education and not co-opted. Pay particularly attention to the word
"co-opted," and maybe extend it to "infiltrated. " This is a situation
that applies to militias and politically oriented environmental groups.
Both are now under extreme scrutiny by the feds, who are armed with
draconian new laws that permit them to throw you in jail for the most
trivial reasons. But the need to be very careful should not stop you
from trying to discern and organize people who are genuinely interested
in the principles of freedom, in maintaining the attitudes that could
make America what we always hoped it would be, and ending this criminal
caricature that it has become. At some point very soon, we all need to
address our public officials, and determine if they are going to side
with the people who are being oppressed or with the oppressors who are
being bribed to fleece and shackle the people. These are the questions
we need to ask them: Why are there two sets of laws in this country,
one for the poor that guarantees they will continue to live in poverty,
and one for the rich, which assures they can get away anything as long
as they pay the right person? Why is it that our Attorney General
approves of the indefinite incarceration of innocent foreigners without
having to present any evidence, yet refuses to investigate charges of
treason, obstruction of justice, mega grand theft and mass murder
against the rich and powerful men who have seized control of what was
once a free country? Who will investigate law enforcement when the law
enforcers have turned criminal? Why was Dick Cheney allowed to keep
secret the master plan for robbing Californians of $11 billion? Why
have all laws protecting the environment been repealed when we know the
infusion of poisons into products is needlessly killing large numbers of
people? Why are we deliberately fouling our air with poisonous
chemtrails, and why is it no government official will say a thing about
this? Why is there a deliberate obstruction created by Ashcroft to
prevent ordinary people from finding out what their government is doing
to them? Why are ingredients like flouride and aspartame permitted in
what we consume when everyone knows they are poisoning us? Why are our
schools turning out children who can't spell or think for themselves?
And why does our government seek to take away money for those schools
and give it to self-serving, thought-limiting religious schools,
especially when the Constitution that used to be in force expressly
prohibits such transparent favoritism? The police state is here. Your
rights have been taken away, one by one. It is now illegal to think for
yourself. Just try to examine evidence showing the Germans never
willingly gassed anyone during World War II. You can be thrown in jail
just for trying. And knowing that, what does that tell you about the
original question? Do you see anything wrong with outlawing certain
thoughts? If you don't, then you probably don't have any questions about
where you went to school, or what church you go to, and you also
probably don't see any purpose in any of this I've just written. Our
reliance on mass media has dulled our minds, our reliance on prepackaged
foods has anesthetized our senses and atrophied our bodies, and our
reliance on establishment religion has shackled our spirits, and made us
cogs in a mindless machine rather than the sensitive seeds in the soil
we need to be to fulfill our human birthright. We need to grow our own
food, make our own clothes, live in our own houses. We need to break the
backs of the bankers who control us with things we don't really need.
What do we do with all this time our modern conveniences give us? We
seek out more distractions to keep us separate from those we love. All
these consumables we covet just make us hate ourselves more, because,
deep down, we all know we're not doing what we're supposed to be doing.
What we're supposed to be doing is making a better world, making sure
people are not suffering, making sure that we're not destroying the very
things that keep us alive. We are not supposed to be increasingly
alienating ourselves with false styles and transitory titillations that
prevent us from nourishing the very things that nourish us. We are not
supposed to be taking pills to make us feel better, we are supposed to
be living lives that make us feel better. The existing political
structure in America is rotten to the core, fatally polluted by a
private money supply that enables perverted patricians to retain their
aristocratic power across the generations. Until this injustice is
eliminated, and the power over money is returned to the people, nothing
will be fixed, and the unjust wars will proliferate. Instead of
leading a more humane world into a new era of enlightenment,
understanding and technological diversity, America is dragging the world
backwards into a new Dark Ages where force of plunder is annihilating
legitimate efforts toward reciprocal respect and cooperation. Under
present circumstances, there is no alternative to the mass dismissal and
prosecution of the entire American government — the administration,
the congress, the judiciary all must be indicted for criminal
corruption. To do this, a massive campaign of recalibration needs to be
undertaken. Starting at the local level, delegates to form a new
government need to be chosen, preferably without political campaigns
(and certainly without funded campaigns). These local delegates need to
coalesce at the state level, and begin the arduous task of
reconstituting the federal government without political campaigns.
Once a temporary U.S. Senate is chosen by the states, new elections can
be held for the House of Representatives, which then would choose a new
Senate as a precondition for being able to hold a nationwide election
for higher leadership positions. In the interim, a temporary
administrative transition team would coordinate the operations of the
federal government, once all the Cabinet-level leaders had been jailed.
Who would be named to this team, and how it would be named, remain to be
seen. Political parties, military and religious leaders, unions,
newspapers, bankers, lawyers and doctors should not be involved in this
selection process. Or perhaps they all should. The one thing to be
avoided is the dominance of any one segment of society over the entire
government, as it is now by lawyers masquerading as professional
politicians. The only way to get a truly representative and functional
government is to severely regulate the use of mass media in campaigning,
enforce strict term limits for all offices, and to radically revise all
laws governing banks. Usury must be abolished, and upper limits on
income established, now that we are all certain unregulated capitalism
is the cause of most of the world's problems. All the budgets of the
world can be balanced by the simple confiscations of most of the
fortunes of the world's wealthiest people, like the Rothschild, Bush and
Windsor families. Relax, patricians, you'll still be able to buy your
way out of trouble. We won't take it all, just most of it. Besides, many
members of these families won't need their money if they're living at
Guantanamo, which should probably be renamed "Camp Bush". No more is
it a question of trying to get ahead in this society. This society is
broken. It is time to forge a new world, not based on domination,
exploitation and war. We must stop regarding the idea of revolution as
merely an abstract concept, and realize that a functioning, purposeful
revolution is the only way most of us are going to survive. Otherwise,
the certainty of slavery for 90 percent of the world's population is
unavoidable, and that will only perpetuate the same problems that
continue to afflict us. How we can effect these necessary changes
absolutely vital to our collective survival are questions that you, dear
reader, must now answer. It is essential that you share your conclusions
with others, and not just keep them to yourselves. If you don't see
the need for any of these questions I've just posed, let me ask you
this: What will you do when they come for you?
