U.S. Americans will recall the title of the Revolutionary War tract written
by Thomas Paine called "Common
Sense". What many do not remember is the content of this very
honest account of life as seen by one of our Great Patriots. "Common
Sense" is no longer in the synopsis of most public school curricula
these days, either; the reason is obvious. Thomas Paine was nothing less
than a pseudo-anarchist, which all men of complete logic tend to become. As
a document that helped define the belief system of a nation, it would
behoove us to reexamine Paine's writings, and reap rewards from its wisdom.
It is obvious
by the opening statements why our government has rid the schools of pesky
Paine. Paine states: "Some writers have so confounded society with
government so as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas
they are not only different, but have different origins. Society is
produced by our wants and government by our wickedness; the former promotes
our happiness positively by uniting our affections, the latter negatively by
restraining our vices. The one encourages intercourse, the other creates
distinctions. The first is a patron, the last a punisher."
succinct and true. Anarchy is the absence of government, not the absence of
society. Anarchy does not mean chaos; tyranny is the harbinger of that
fearsome foe. Paine admits that "society" is the mutually agreed upon
collectivization of humanity, and that government is designed to destroy
such a harmonious society. As anarchy is the opposite of authority; so,
too, is society opposite of government. Both can live on the same planet,
but they will ever be at odds.
as patriots do, that the masses have allowed the current government its
gargantuan power and unprecedented corruption. Paine: "When we suffer or
are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a
country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we
furnish the means by which we suffer."
added history, psychology, and philosophy to his essay. Americans often say
that the world would be lawless without government. They fear the "evil" in
men, and therefore ask for security. Paine writes that if humanity obeyed
its conscience, "man would need no lawgiver; but that not being the case,
he finds it necessary to surrender up a part of his property to furnish
means for protection of the rest." Being as this is obviously one of
man's most primordial fears - thus the early institution of governments -
governments themselves have utilized this fear. This is the basis for
political dialectics, which the modern State has adopted wholeheartedly.
authority exist? Paine asks that question: "Male and females are the
distinctions of nature, good and bad are the distinctions of heaven; but how
a race of men came into the world so exalted above the rest, and
distinguished like some new species, is worth inquiring into, and whether
they are a means of happiness or misery to mankind." The Illuminati!
This is whom Paine speaks of. The Illuminati, loosely defined, are the top
echelon of the hierarchical pyramid that has been implemented over all of
It is most definitely worth asking how they were able to attain their place,
and whether or not they have given humanity a net benefit or detriment.
the Bible to follow the line of government. This has been factually proven
through countless other historical researches. The first pyramidal
structures were formed by the Egyptians, Assyrians, Hittites, etc., and then
adopted by the Jews. Before this, there was no government, and no mass
war. It is government, Paine states, "that throws man into confusion."
takes us to the present day: "The heathens paid divine honors to their
deceased kings, and the Christian world has improved on the plan by doing
the same to their living ones." Paine adds to this affront "divine
lineage." The Bush family fits the description of lineal masters. In
Evangelical churches, Bush posters were plastered garishly in churches
nationwide, in idolatrous hero-worship. The current President's father was
president, his grandfather was Senator, and he is related to Charlemagne;
and, before that,
Vlad III. Do we not still live in an age where lineage matters more
than equality? Almost prophetically related to Bush, Paine writes: "One
of the strongest natural proofs of the folly of the hereditary rights of
kings, is that nature disproves it, otherwise she would not so frequently
turn it into ridicule by giving an ass for a lion."
"The nearer any government approaches to a republic, the less business there
is for a king." This holds true. Although U.S. presidents have vast
powers, they wield less in our republic than any monarchy that existed.
Comparing the United States with Switzerland further proves this idea.
Switzerland is a federal republic, and more so than the U.S. The Cantons of
Switzerland have more power in relation to the federal government than the
States of the U.S. have in the face of our gargantuan Fed. Also, a direct
referendum is allowed for any law that passes, making the Swiss people a
more democratic people, and giving them the ability to overturn any bill.
The final result is that Switzerland has no president; rather it has a
governing council whose head is changed annually. This is the path I would
like to see America take. It is worth noting that the education and per
capita wealth are much higher in Switzerland than in America.
that Thomas Paine made for seceding from Britain can be made today when
discussing the people of the United States and the current lineal Federal
Government. Paine details the opposition line that America would have
flourished up to the Revolution because of Great Britain. He refutes this,
stating that we would have flourished more without her. "We may as well
assert that because a child has thrived upon milk, it is never to have
against the Revolutionaries was that Britain was the mother country. That
argument is made today. Many claim that the U.S. Government is our mother
and father. I say, as did Paine, "Then the more shame on her conduct.
Even brutes do not devour their young, nor savages make war upon their
families; Europe is the mother of America, not England." Today, I say
that the World is the Mother of America, not the Federal Government. The
U.S. Government is nothing but a complete fraud. But the wonderful melting
pot that is America - that is real; we the people are real. The U.S.
government devours their young, not leastways by excluding Thomas Paine in
the question as to whether or not America would be prosperous without
England. "Our corn will fetch its price in any market in Europe, and our
imports must be paid for, buy them where they will." Once again, this
holds true. Our work will fetch its price. The goods we manufacture will
be bought, and their quality will rise in price, not decline.
disadvantages are weighed, their weight is also the same today. Paine
states that by withdrawing from the influence of Britain, we would no longer
be embroiled in her bitter wars. If we were not involved in today's
government, we would have more peace. Our government staged the Gulf of
Tonkin incident, starting the Vietnam conflict. In the Balkans, Americans
were subjugated to the will of NATO, and used to kill Christians in their
centuries-old fight against Muslims. The 9-11 incident
was concocted and staged to embroil us in the current Iraq was. Without
government, we would not be involved, and therefore animosity toward the
Nation would lessen. Also, the Islamic terrorists have made it clear that
their targets are Wall Street, Hollywood (because of propaganda-value),
D.C. So, it is evident that they do not necessarily want to kill Americans,
only Americans affiliated with the Corporate technocracy and their
military/industrial complex which is our government.
"To talk of friendship with those in whom our reason forbids us to have
faith is madness and folly." One need only read the list of atrocities
perpetrated by our own government to admit this is true today. Our
government knows this, and that is why they are crafting a society based
upon surveillance, prisons, fluctuating economies, and war.
Sense" stating that all ties between England and America must
be severed. In America, the time has come to sever ties with Washington,
D.C. Unfortunately, the people are not ready. Americans have become
docile. We sleep.
The great men
of the Revolution stood for freedom with their lives, with their blood.
None today proclaim what Paine screamed from the mountaintops: "Ye that
dare oppose not only tyranny but the tyrant, stand forth!"
There is no divine right
But, there are natural rights of man. The kings are not natural, nor or
they heavenly, as Paine admits. They were conspired into existence.
Government, and the U.S. government, continues to this day not through God,
and not through Mother Earth. It lives through conspiracy, and comes from
Hell, if such a place exists.
