We accept what is given and what is given is The Fear. Fear and the knowledge that the power to over come The Fear is to either buy something or wait for a greater force to come save us from The Fear.

We all sit and wait for some other greater force than us to solve our problems, in church, in state, in schools, and in homes, we sit and wait for god, government, non profits, corporations, etc to save us from disaster.

We must stop accepting The Fear distributed by the Fearmongers. Eliminate all forms of coercion from our daily routines, advertising, corporate media, etc. Once we start thinking our own thoughts, dreaming our own dreams and living our own lives, we will be mentally free to create our own forms of culture, our own forms society, and take back control of the future of the human race from the Fearmongers.

Capitalism is accepted as the unavailable perfection of human activity. God's existence will be happily discussed by most people, yet capitalism is unquestionable. Our society equates consumption habits with sanity. To question the nature of the conditions of consumer society is bring ones sanity into doubt. For if one was to question consumer society one must also be calling into question the validity of capitalism. Surely if one does not believe that a consumer society is a state of perfection where all humans dine at the same table of prosperity one must be insane.

Intellectual Property and Copyright restrictions stifle innovation and creativity. As we all know any nation that disrespects these limitations to human activity will develop a society more advanced than one that respects these limitations. Patents now apply to our food supply and even our genetic codes.

Growing your own food may be Copyright Infringement and grounds to have your home taken from you in court. Designer Genetic IP Nazis may confiscate your natural-born children for Gene Bootlegging.

Now you can feel The Fear on the back of your neck...

The distribution of knowledge, or lack thereof, is the means of social control by which all humans are slaves. In cultural servitude we toil for hierarchical rank, struggling to obtain status in a system we know to be anathema to any realized conceptualization of freedom one can imagine.

The dissemination of cultures anathema to human freedom and innovations are a plague upon the human race. Advertising, branding, think tanks, PR, corporate news, and other forms of coercion for profit are in the business of carving out our futures. And that future is one lived in fear and ignorance, dependent upon the system to provide scarcity and opportunity side by side, and provide a way for most humans to continue shopping for solutions until the end of time. To resign to reside in a 'capitalist utopia' and accept the 'end of history'.

This is the cultural destiny that has been chosen for us by nothing more than an oblivious bureaucratic machinery that has no one at the controls. There is no evil mastermind at the helm, there is only us and button pushing Fearmongers fighting for hierarchy in a badly wired machine are also us!

We are the problem we seek to free ourselves from. We are the Fearmongers. We make The Fear.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
