We are in the beginning stages of a global inquisition. Nazi Germany, The Spanish Inquisition, Pol Pot’s dictatorship, on a global scale… I don’t think it necessarily has to turn out that way… for all of us.
History repeats itself on larger and larger scales. This is the final and largest repetition.
Speak now, or forever hold your peace. The time is too urgent to do otherwise.
Unfortunately I think it is wishful thinking to believe in things like that. Those that seek power and control want you to sit idly by, waiting for some deity to come save you. People have the power to do good and evil. It is in our control to be isolated egos looking out for our own good only, or to be connected with the laws of nature and the universe.
Imagine saying that while living in Nazi Germany in 1939? Where were the “friends in high places” then?
It’s up to us as human beings, not some higher powers. For the first time, we have the potential to take the power back. They know this. If we squander the opportunity, we will be imprisoned.
If we’re apathetic and distracted, we’ll lose. We are living in extremely urgent times. The potentials for failure- or for success- are wide open.
It’s only going to work out if we make it work out. Sitting there and telling yourself that it’s all ok because there are higher powers watching the surveillance state is just an excuse for apathy.
WE are the higher power.
Well, I am coming here as a German well aware of our history and that of others and can tell you, genocides like the ones our country did were happening for thousands of years and will probably still happen for thousands of years. The only problem is, the number of genocides shrinks, but their scale has become much larger. The genocide on the Armenians, on Jews, on any educated people in the USSR and China,… Right now in Syria and Iraq. But they are getting less and less. It is hard to perform big planned genocides like my country did without international forces intervening. We have grown to wary.
