Think Outside the Propaganda Matrix, says Tony Blizzard (left)
Most people never think "outside the box" and the box is created by their enslavers. Whether too timid or lazy or intimidated, makes no difference. People must think things out, investigate and act as individuals rather than one more sheep in the herd.
When I lived in Idaho my wife and I bought an older home in a town in an area which had been a federal land grant even before Idaho was a state. We paid off the property before long. I got out the records in the county assessors office, found the original land patent signed in the name of the President of the United States at that time and upgraded our portion of it through all the owners from the time the patent was granted until us. Disregarding our warranty deed (which only warrants that no one else is claiming the property, similar to a quit claim deed - deeds do NOT grant title) I had the updated land patent notarized, advertised and took it to the county assessor who understood that my wife and I, indeed, DID now have title to our property as he rightly told me he COULD NOT ISSUE US A TAX BILL (as we actually owned the property). All that was reserved from us were mineral rights, which no one had an interest in since the gold rushes were over, and water rights, which we understood as I was running the irrigation ditches in our part of town.
The point is that I did what was necessary to actually OWN my property instead of whining about the government always keeping ownership and taxing at will. Granted, I could not have done this had there not been a land patent but I took the initiative to find out if one existed and acted upon it.
Similarly, I home schooled my kids back when it was a jailable offense, moving every year so as to avoid the do-gooder sheep who would turn me in to the "authorities" in a NY second. Now in their sixties, not one of them runs with the herd, all my grand children and great grand children either are or will be home schooled when they reach the age. There is not a brainwashed person in the bunch.
Before my teens I began doing my own thinking, which soon branded me a rebel, a maverick. So already at the end of WW2, being an independent thinker was being disparaged. I suppose this propaganda program is also the reason for so much blather about peer pressure which I never understood as I didn't care what the other kids thought of me and wondered why such an idea would matter to them.
We each have our own mind. If each uses his properly the most sophisticated propaganda cannot capture one's mind.
