Freedom and liberty can only be preserved by winning the hearts and minds of our fellow citizens. The collectivist (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats, - all virtually the same) have understood this concept from perhaps the beginning of time. The collectivist has been much better at changing hearts and minds. There is a reason for their success and that is that they are so committed to controlling and dominating it is all consuming. They genuinely believe and practice the only rule they have and that is that the ends always justify the means.
Those who believe in individual freedom and liberty are not consumed with controlling anybody but champion the idea that all people should be self-reliant and free from government dominance. These people go about their business of providing for themselves, taking responsibility for their decisions, and playing by the rules. They do believe in the good of people and that when people say they will do something they believe it will be done. This is why the collectivists are able to gain control, they lie, they cheat, they deceive, and they take pride in doing so. When Harry Reid when on the floor of the Senate and declared he had it from good sources that Mitt Romney had not filed income taxes for the last 10 years and then was called out for his outright and intentional lie, his response was, “well, he lost didn’t he.” This exhibits the mind of the collectivist such as a Marx, Lenin, Mao, Castro, Obama, and Holder.
Today the collectivists in the United States have been able to capture our education system and have changed it to a system of indoctrination just as Lenin set into motion under the Communist International and what the Frankfurt School did when they came to the United States. The collectivist movement now dominates the media and the entertainment factions within the United States just as Lenin intended and Stalin was able to accomplish through the workings of the Communist International.
These are not some radical right-wing theories as people like Cliff and Mary would have you believe, but they are clearly documented and cannot be denied if a person will simply look at the facts. The collectivist is winning in the United States and every day we who champion individual liberty and freedom are losing more and more liberty and freedom. What the collectivist advocators like Cliff and Mary do not understand is that they also are losing their freedom and liberty and one day, perhaps soon, will also be forced to conform to ideas with which they could very possibly disagree or be segregated or eliminated.
If we who champion individual liberty and freedom, even for those like Cliff and Mary, wish to once again live under a government who realizes what it is to be a servant and not a sovereign, we must understand what must be done. True changes are made when the hearts and minds of the people are changed. This has been proven time after time. Tyrants have been overthrown and free people have become dominated because the hearts and minds of the people allowed it.
In the United States today, if we who believe in American principles wish to have these principles again become dominant, we must understand what those principle really are and why our founders were so adamant to have these principles as the basis for the founding of the new country they just founded. The founders said that less government was always best, and the government must always function as servant and not sovereign.
If you are concerned about your individual liberty and freedom, you must go about doing what Samuel Adams did to change the hearts and minds of the colonists by “Setting Brushfires of Freedom”. If you are dedicated to keeping our country a country that values individual liberty and freedom and not become a country ruled by bureaucrats, technocrats, and experts, you will get a copy of the book “Setting Brushfires of Freedom” by Don Jans.
