The other rays of love are: Integrity, commitment, vulnerability, truth, listening, communication and honesty in addition to responsibility. As many things fall around us it is these things that will loom up in importance. It is my advice to embrace all seven rays of love in the coming years for they will provide the only protection for our souls. The Bible was not kidding when it says narrow is the way to righteousness and broad is the path to destruction. I was amazed, almost 40 years ago, in my first year of college, when I read the Late Great Planet Earth, which was mostly about the prophecies in the bible. What is about to happen should not come as a surprise.
David Galland of Casey Research asks: “Is there anything you can do to protect yourself? The answer rests with your individual circumstances. If you have the funds – and it can cost a lot less to live elsewhere – then consider diversifying your life internationally. At the least, keep one foot in your home country while settling the other firmly elsewhere. Then, if things go as now seems inevitable, you’ll be ready to pick the one foot up.”
“As an American, that won’t protect you from the confiscatory taxation – but there’s much to be said about being one step removed from a government that looks upon you as a tax slave. If you don’t have the ability to move, then consider working on skills that you can use in barter. And consider not living in a city, if you do. While I don’t think that we’re headed toward a nation of Detroits – which is to say, the world of Mad Max – in hard times, the fewer of your fellow citizens you need to rub up against, the better.”
“And, of course, accumulate gold and silver to protect your purchasing power.”

Lance Freemond is hard on America and says, “On top of all that you’ve got vast factory farms, sprawling suburbs and a truck-based shipping system, all of it entirely dependent on oil that is about to become completely unaffordable. And you’ve got guns. Lots of guns! In short: the United States is about to become a very unwholesome place to be.”
“Right now, the government is building fences and walls along its northern and southern borders. Right now, the government is working on a national ID system (soon to be fitted with biometric features). Right now, the government is building a surveillance state so extensive that they will be able to follow your every move, online, in the street and across borders. If you think this is just to protect you from “terrorists,” then you’re sadly mistaken. Once the shit really hits the fan, do you really think you’ll just be able to jump into the old station wagon, drive across the Canadian border and spend the rest of your days fishing and drinking Molson? No, the government is going to lock the place down. They don’t want their tax base escaping. They don’t want their “recruits” escaping. They don’t want YOU escaping.”
“I am not writing this to scare you. I write this to you as a friend. If you are able to read and understand what I’ve written here, then you are a member of a small minority in the United States. You are a minority in a country that has no place for you.”
So what should you do? You should leave the United States of America. If you’re young, you’ve got plenty of choices: you can teach English in the Middle East, Asia, South America or Europe.”
Representative Ron Paul was already addressing crucial issues back in 2002 when he addressed the Speaker of the House.
“Mr. Speaker, my subject today is whether America is a police state. I’m sure the large majority of Americans would answer this in the negative. Most would associate military patrols, martial law and summary executions with a police state, something obviously not present in our everyday activities. However, those with knowledge of Ruby Ridge, Mount Carmel and other such incidents may have a different opinion.
The principal tool for sustaining a police state, even the most militant, is always economic control and punishment by denying disobedient citizens such things as jobs or places to live, and by levying fines and imprisonment. The military is more often used in the transition phase to a totalitarian state. Maintenance for long periods is usually accomplished through economic controls on commercial transactions, the use of all property, and political dissent. Peaceful control through these efforts can be achieved without storm troopers on our street corners.
Terror and fear are used to achieve complacency and obedience, especially when citizens are deluded into believing they are still a free people. The changes, they are assured, will be minimal, short-lived, and necessary, such as those that occur in times of a declared war. Under these conditions, most citizens believe that once the war is won, the restrictions on their liberties will be reversed. For the most part, however, after a declared war is over, the return to normalcy is never complete. In an undeclared war, without a precise enemy and therefore no precise ending, returning to normalcy can prove illusory.
We have just concluded a century of wars, declared and undeclared, while at the same time responding to public outcries for more economic equity. The question, as a result of these policies, is: "Are we already living in a police state?" If we are, what are we going to do about it? If we are not, we need to know if there’s any danger that we’re moving in that direction.
Most police states, surprisingly, come about through the democratic process with majority support. During a crisis, the rights of individuals and the minority are more easily trampled, which is more likely to condition a nation to become a police state than a military coup.”
Freedom is an illusion, even in America where we see the Patriot Act and the federal government encroaching on the once proud and free. A huge percentage of American’s tax dollars go to the Pentagon. Americans are required almost under the pain of death to pay taxes even though their constitution does not endorse an income tax. If you’re from the less fortunate class the chances are high that you will serve and possibly die in their endless wars, or send your sons and daughters to do so. Poor Americans have no choice in the matter: there is a socio-economic draft system in the United States that provides a steady stream of cannon fodder for the military.
