Never Allow The State To Do Your Thinking For You


Doesn't matter what the press says.
Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say.
Doesn't matter if the whole country decides 
that something wrong is something right.
This nation was founded on one principle 
above all else: 
The requirement that we stand up 
for what we believe, 
no matter the odds or the consequences. 
When the mob and the press 
and the whole world tell you to move, 
your job is to plant yourself like a tree 
beside the river of truth, 
and tell the whole world -- 

"No, YOU move."

The financial backing for these bills was property seized from loyalists. 
The motto reads 
"Nemo me impune lacesset," 
i.e. "No one will provoke me with impunity."

"Fortunately, some are born with spiritual immune systems that sooner or later give rejection to the

illusory worldview grafted upon them from birth through social conditioning

They begin sensing that something is amiss, 
and start looking for answers. 

Inner knowledge 

and anomalous outer experiences 
show them a side of reality 
that others are oblivious to. 
And so begins their

journey of awakening. 

Each step of the journey made by 

following the heart 
instead of following the crowd

choosing knowledge 
over the veils of ignorance."

Henri Bergson
