Freedom was Nice

Published on July 5, 2010


Intolerant governments across the globe are “slowly crushing” activist and advocacy groups that play an essential role in the development of democracy, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday. She cited a broad range of countries where “the walls are closing in” on civic organizations such as unions, religious groups, rights advocates and other nongovernmental organizations that press for social change and shine a light on governments’ shortcomings. “Some of the countries engaging in these behaviors still claim to be democracies. We must be wary of the steel vise in which governments around the world are slowly crushing civil society and the human spirit,” she said. Social activists, Clinton said, are being harassed, censored, cut off from funding, arrested, prosecuted or killed.

Funny that she did not mention Canada whose police crushed a peaceful demonstration in Toronto when the recent G20 meeting was held. Secret new laws came to light, to the surprise of the legal community, which allowed the unapologetic police to do what they wanted to Canadian citizens. Security personnel are certainly not being nice in the Gulf, if one believes reports from people in some of the worst affected areas.

And when the United States government moves forward toward mandatory yearly flu vaccinations, what are they doing to the concept and reality of freedom? “A central principle of democracy is freedom of choice. We can choose our political party, our religion, and the food we eat, but this does not seem to be the case when it comes to our medical choices and our freedoms to make them. The recent unanimous 11-0 vote by the members of the Centers for Disease Control’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) favoring every American over the age of six months receive the flu influenza vaccine is one more attempt by our federal health officials to open up our bodies to the free market capitalism of pharmaceutical coffers. It is another step to mandate a vaccine across the nation, a policy that has many supporters in the pro-vaccine science community,” writes Richard Gale and Dr. Gary Null.

What we are beginning to see in the news are the machinations of the elite class pushing their agenda as hard as they can in the present circumstances. Reality is only partially visible to the common man for so much is hidden or kept in the shadows of rumor, hearsay and conspiracy theory. But now, as end-of-times events (the oil volcano in the Gulf surely qualifies) come onto center stage – certain broad strokes of the elite pen become more visible. The vaccine obscenity is a direct rape of the vulnerability of human beings’ bodies and souls and this has created a hell on earth for those families who have suffered vaccine damage and death. In my upcoming book Humane Pediatrics I talk about this vulnerability and the Terror of Pediatric Medicine.

Freedom is in broad retreat across the globe but nowhere is it retreating as fast or as threateningly as in Canada and the United States. We could call these countries “fortresses of freedoms lost.” Their citizens believe in freedom and still feel like they have it but their governments and corporations feel otherwise as we all are about to find out. “Crushing” is a good word to describe the effect the United States government is having on the world and now soon on its own people.

And yes, freedom of the press is taking some hard hits. We now read that the government is restricting the media’s access to cleanup operations in order to keep images of oil-covered seabirds off the nation’s televisions. CNN reporter Anderson Cooper says, “A new law passed today, and backed by the force of law and the threat of fines and felony charges… [this law] will prevent reporters and photographers from getting anywhere close to booms and oil-soaked wildlife… By now you’re probably familiar with cleanup crews stiff-arming the media, private security blocking cameras, ordinary workers clamming up, some not even saying who they’re working for because they’re afraid of losing their jobs.”

“I live in Houston too and now when I am outside for a long enough time I feel a sick feeling unlike I have never felt before and I have lived here all of my life. I can’t imagine what it will be like in the next months or when a hurricane blows all of this poison more inland. It is time to wake up, people.” – Post left on one of my Sites

The news from the Gulf, like all the news, is shaped, censored and controlled by the government in order to prevent the public from learning the truth about what’s really happening. One of the things happening is that the government and the elite group behind it have their backs against the wall; they are caught in a web of lies that makes it impossible for the government to be truthful and thus helpful. How can a government who endorses as safe the universal injection of organic mercury into babies and adults be honest about anything when it comes to toxicity?

How can a government that wants to tax the idea of global warming come clean about global cooling and the threat to food availability and affordability. Just to give you an idea of what a June or July on the North American continent can be like as things continue to cool and get wetter at the same time: On July 1st Governor Chris Gregoire asked U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to designate 29 counties in Washington as farm disaster areas due to weather-related losses. The damage was the result of extreme weather conditions throughout the spring, including severe cold, high winds and excessive rains. “Conditions this year have been difficult for our growers across Washington, from Clark County to Okanogan,” Gregoire said. “Cold temperatures have harmed our tree fruit crops, while excessive rain made it difficult for bees to pollinate strawberries and other berry crops. A declaration will help our businesses absorb a difficult year and look forward.”

Potato and alfalfacrops were severely damaged after a freezing wind swept through east Idaho in the middle of June. Temperatures dropped to as low as 28 degrees, freezing the crops within minutes. Sydney recorded its coldest June morning today since 1949, with temperatures diving to 4.3 degrees just before 6:00 am on the 30th of the month. Twelve million acres of Manitoba farmland in Canada are under water, ten million acres of Saskatchewan farmland are also under water, millions of acres more in Alberta are also under water. Food production from the Gulf is being closed down and that nutritional basket might be closed for several life times.

The world has always been and remains a highly dangerous place. But now hundreds of millions who have lived in comfort are going to be confronted with something that they are ill prepared for. It is stupid to think that military and other elite power groups don’t know and understand what is happening. We have ripped a hole in the world just at a time when nature is rising up against us with dramatic changes in climate. We have extremes in everything but heat, as the solar furnace in our solar system, takes a cyclic break in terms of sun spots and overall solar radiation. Add to that a financial system that is robbing the masses and on its way to a depression-type grave and we have something that people would want to run from if they could. That is, if they knew what was really happening, but the government cannot have that.

I believe that human beings aspire to freedom by their very nature but governments exist to steal, trample and abuse people’s freedoms and rights. It is difficult to believe in the universal value of democracy and the enormous benefits it can offer to people because the rich and powerful have taken the concept of democracy and made a mockery of it. Democracy is obviously not the best form of government for all nations; it certainly is a laughing matter in the United States unless you accuse the people themselves of lusting for endless war and the abuse of peoples around the globe. Sure, “the people” voted to give trillions to the banks out of their very own and children’s pockets.

Sooner or later we will come to our senses and fight for our freedom when enough of it has been stolen from us though fighting is not exactly going to get us anything but the boot from security forces. If the elite have their way we will have a freedom-less-age with even the elite losing their freedom to travel above ground or in an unspoiled, unpolluted destroyed world environment. Even now they are certainly not free to travel in anything but armored limousines and live behind guarded walled compounds. So what else is new? We always had castles!

  • The present generation,is the luckiest and the last one to experience “freedom”.The Globalists:-G20 etc, are taking control,and the future for the common folk is bleak.

    At least you have your constitution which you may be able to defend by legal means – in Australia our constitution is not worth the paper it’s written on – it provides us no rights, but the right of the government to make their own decisions. Add to this is the fact that very few Australians seem to be aware of what is going on in the world. I subscribe to Natural News, CTM, Orthomolecular Medicine News,Vitamin D Council as well as a few others and I had to ask one of these agencies if there was an agency in Australia that was promoting health freedom. I was given the Alliance for Health Freedom Australia – but it seems they are not doing their job – I haven’t struck anyone in Australia who is aware of the issues regarding health freedom and that’s a big worry. Australians won’t even know they are missing anything until it’s too late.

    Mark, You write of ‘Intolerant governments across the globe’. The MOST intolerant government on the globe for many decades has been that of the US of A. Read history [not the books published by those that have and do support the US of A government].

    You write of Canada and the United States as being “fortresses of freedoms lost.” Again, I say read history. I realised many years ago that the US of A is NOT – nor was it EVER the “land of the free, home of the brave”. That has been a myth – indeed a lie, a delusion believed by citizens of the US of A to their grave detriment. I have for decades averred that the moment US marines set foot on my country to bring “freedom” and “democracy”, that is when I become part of the underground – just as many French who loved their country did during the Nazi occupation of France in the 1940s.

    You write that ” freedom of the press is taking some hard hits”. Please tell me: when was there real freedom of the press in the US of A?
    The website sheds light on the delusion of press freedom in the US of A. Check who owns the media in the US of A. [That ownership is near world-wide – at least in the so-called “West”.]

    In my truth, the only freedom that exists is that of my mind: I am free to think what I will. IMO, no other freedom exists anywhere on this planet.

    Dr Sircus,

    I’m shocked and saddened by this post. I shall continue to subscribe and read, because I’ve found much valuable about your site and your works, but I’ll be reading with a new awareness. As usual, you raise many good points, but there are some misrepresentations so flagrant, that I must comment.

    Hillary Clinton, an advocate for the downtrodden? Is that was she was doing for Honduras in the last year? Until only a few weeks ago she and the Obama administration were leading the months-long effort to force that tiny country to reinstate a dictator wannabe, and Hugo Chavez acolyte, who had tried to subvert their constitutional term limits on the presidency. And she’s still calling his legal removal a “coup”, when she and everyone else knows he was arrested by a constitutional order from the Honduran Supreme Court.

    Or maybe you thought Zelaya (the ousted) was on the right track because you also stated, “Democracy is obviously not the best form of government for all nations.” What kind of government do citizens in those other countries deserve? A benevolent dictator? They don’t exist.

    What they’ll get instead is a Chavez or a Castro, and if that’s not what you intend, it’s hard to tell, because when you accuse America, (on Independence Day weekend too) of ” … lusting for endless war and the abuse of peoples around the globe”, you sound like you do.

    Maybe it is you who don’t understand the concept of democracy.

    Dr Sircus, Democracy is not the best form of government for ANY nation. Majority rule is another name for mob rule. That means that when governments are instituted by men, they must be limited in their power. That’s why “democracy” is what we DON’T have in the United States. What we have, what is currently hanging by a thread, and what a lot of us are fighting to preserve is a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.

    Maybe you’ve heard the clips of our “human wrecking ball” of a president talk about how our constitution is a “charter of negative liberties”. Actually that’s typical Obamaspeak. The concept is self-contradictory. Underneath he knows what he mean but he’s too much of a coward to actually say it: the government is too constrained by the constitution for his taste. To that I would add: damned right it is! And that’s why he’s woking ceaselessly to expand his power and subvert the rule of law.

    That’s why I’m fighting him and his ilk every step of the way. I’m fighting to keep those limits on what the government can do.
    BTW, Here’s a hint on how to tell when Obama is lying: his mouth is open.

    Short of armed conflict, intellectual clarity, (which means CONCEPTUAL clarity), is the only means we have left, of stemming the tide of encroaching tyranny. That is why the increasingly common attacks on freedom of speech by the government are so ominous.

    As an example of a lack conceptual clarity, you referred to the “free market capitalism of pharmaceutical coffers”, to which I reply: What free market?? They are one of the most regulated industries on earth. I’m not defending them because they’re in bed with government corruption up to their eyeballs. But let’s get the story straight.

    I challenge you or your readers to point out a single instance of a free market in today’s society, besides something like a 10 year old’s lemonade stand. Where do you find one? The government has all but nationalized the auto industry, the housing industry,education, mortgages, student loans, medical care, banking and they’re working on nationalizing the energy industry, and the labor market too. Government is the biggest lender, collector, land owner, debtor and employer. WHAT FREE MARKET!!

    So let’s define our terms. Capitalism is a “social system, where all property is privately owned”, and the government is instituted by the consent of the governed to hold a legal monopoly on the the use of force, and it may only be used against those who initiate force, (or threaten to) against other individuals.

    In other words the INITIATION of physical force is outlawed between citizens, and the government is there to protect the smallest minority on earth, THE INDIVIDUAL from such violations of their rights. This would also include the indirect initiation of the use of force such as fraud.

    Please note it is a SOCIAL system, not an economic one. Among free people, able to dispose of the product of their own effort through their own unforced judgement, an “economy” is just a byproduct of all those choices and actions.

    Anyone who has a problem with that basic premise should seek prompt medical attention- either that or find a cave or an island somewhere to get as far away from his fellow humans as possible. Because as long as men wish to live together, their only other choice if they reject that, is the decent into servitude and then anarchy. You correctly cite the broad trend of less freedom, but you attribute it to the wrong cause. It’s not capitalism, it’s STATISM. It’s either or.

    Philosophically it’s a disaster to blame the free market for distortions caused, not by individuals choosing freely, but instead by governments’ attempts to stifle freedom. The reason why it’s disastrous is: without a clear knowledge of what capitalism IS, any solution to the alleged “problem” with “unfettered free markets” will result in more of the injustice’s that got us to this point in the first place.

  • We had some unexpected freezing here in South Africa (-5) – it has been unusual cold for the time of the year, but don’t know yet what influence it has on our harvests. Many plants have died – that we can see. The whole mandatory flu vaccine is crazy. We have not had the flu since about the early 1990s, so even if I would believe in the flu vaccine, which I don’t at all, (totally against), but say I did, why would I than want to have one. Unfortunately many people have now weakened immune system and they find it normal that they do get colds and flus more than once every winter. That is how they get suckered into taking these vaccines.
    Thanks in any case for your writings, am always look forward reading your writings. Go to my website please, than you will be able to see who I am and what I do – am quite notorius right through the world. Kind regards

    ps, seeing as Hillary and her rockerfella mates, and Gates, are so into pop control I would propose they show us by eugenicising themselves to set a good example.
    I wonder if? she knows the meaning of HYPOCRITE!

    Hi Mark, as always a great post.
    Sydney is a capital city, so no food crops there. we don’t have many spots that snow in Aus, but we do have many that often go below zero for some few days, or rather overnights a year.
    in the summer of 06 an 07 when the summer days were hitting 50C on my vine shaded back porch in the lower mid north of Sth Aus, that winter, we had incredible frosts and water frozen to 1/2 inch thick on my ducks water bowls, the frosts even rose to the house walls and killed plants Under the roof cover areas. We are a land of extremes.
