The core truth why immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees (into the tens of millions) exist is because
all countries are not created equal.
But, if you think North Korea offers the same social beneficence as America, you are certainly welcome to move there.
Beliefs count — in people, countries, kingdoms, systems, businesses, models and faiths.
And beliefs linger.
The Roman Empire (well, the Western part of it) has been gone for over 1,500 years. What does anyone remember about it?
Usually two things:
- Julius Caesar thought he was a God so the Roman Senate collectively stabbed him to death on their doorstep; and
- the Roman Coliseum (Flavian Amphitheatre), where anyone the Romans or their Emperors didn’t like were herded into a stadium and regularly slaughtered for sport.
One last word on the Roman Empire: it is still around except now it is draped in the symbols and sacraments of the better Christian faith. It is a poor impersonation.
Beliefs count. Ultimately, they may be the only thing that truly counts.
If you actually do not know that…
And there is no nice way to put this:
You are categorically stupid.
And there is nothing anyone can do about it.
What do you believe?
The only escape from tyranny is mental freedom, or a move from the unconscious to the conscious mind.
Americans would scoff and laugh at any hint that they don’t have freedom, let alone a conscious mind. Yet we are subject to a system of thought that can and is constantly manipulating our lives. Few even suspect this.
Who has the time and focus to penetrate the hidden agenda of the media and government? For the multitude, there is nothing in their unconscious mind to spark suspicion or inquiry into devious political demagoguery. We practically go through our entire existence in an unconscious state. We pay respect to the very influences that are life-consuming and constantly drain our lives and assets.
Modern psychological force is based on the propaganda doctrines of altruism and self-sacrifice among the people. Anti-productive politicians and bureaucrats use and coerce the public mind with the doctrines of self-sacrifice and altruism. This is a system of appeal to the unconscious mind. When you hear a politician use the term “fairness” or “your fair share,” he is manipulating you to give up something to nonproductive government.
If the manipulative fiction of self-sacrifice were to become widely known, the people could readily see that taxes, regulations and innumerable laws are a complex system of government force.
