What To Do When THEY Are Hot On Your Heels
“Paranoia is just another mask for ignorance. The truth, when you finally chase it down is almost always far worse than your darkest visions and fears.” Hunter S. Thompson
That quote sums up a lot. Including a lot of recent events. Specifically, the terrorist events in Paris.
The truth is always something we need to chase down. Unless we know ahead of time what was going to happen, there needs to be a period of investigation. And when I investigate, I have to chase it down. It doesn’t come knocking on my door. In fact, it has no interest in being found.
Additionally, to wallow in
When I’m present with what is going on, I am in my body. In my mind. Aware of what is happening. To not be aware of what is happening is to ignore it- to be in ignorance.
The stakes are rising higher and higher these days. Never in recorded history have fellow citizens and governments been able to spy, steal and surveil their fellow human as much as today with the internet. With each terrorist attack that occurs (like the Paris attack), governing agencies (like the CIA, cough- John Brennan) are using the lowly tactic of exploiting it to justify their legal, but unconstitutional ends of continued and more invasive surveillance.
So what do to do when terrorists strike, and they come looking for you to relinquish some of your rights as a sovereign individual for the sake of their undisclosed agenda? Step back. Take a deep breath. Become curious. Start learning and turning stones yourself. In the 3-dimensional world, there’s always more than meets the eye.
Ignorance is a prerequisite to paranoia. Curiosity and patience are prerequisites to sovereignty.
