Breaking down the taboos doesn't mean anything goes. It simply means that we refuse to be boxed into the status quo imposed upon us as a control mechanism. It means we are willing to take risks and speak out, not just for ourselves but for others as well.
“If a man isn't willing to take some risk for his opinions, either his opinions are no good or he's no good”
― Ezra Pound
1. Lose the fear or at least accept that it is sometimes OK to be afraid as long as it moves us to action instead of paralysis.
“There is no illusion greater than fear.”
― Lao Tzu
"It's just a ride and we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money, a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one."
― Bill Hicks
2. Reject the divide and conquer techniques used against us.
The phrase is attributed to Philip II, king of Macedon (382-336 BC), describing his policy toward the Greek city-states. In politics, divide and rule (also known as divide and conquer) is referring to a strategy of gaining and maintaining power based on the fact that many smaller opponents are easier to manage than one larger one.
The strategy includes:
* breaking up power alliances into smaller chunks that are easier to subdue/manage
* preventing small power groups from linking up and becoming more powerful
Effective use of this technique allows those with limited power to control those who collectively would have had a lot more influence.
3. Political correctness is a tool intended to shut us up. Pick your battles but don't succumb to the social engineering that tries to hold us in check.
“If the first words out of your mouth are to cry ‘political correctness!’, … chances are very, very high that you are in fact part of the problem.”
― N.K. Jemisin
“Political correctness is a war on noticing.”
― Steve Sailer
4. History does repeat. History is also written by the victors....at least what goes into the textbooks for the masses. Refuse the lies portrayed as historical fact. Study and discern.
"Is it because we're having so much fun at home we've forgotten the world? Is it because we're so rich and the rest of the world's so poor and we just don't care if they are? I've heard rumors; the world is starving, but we're well fed. Is it true, the world works hard and we play? Is that why we're hated so much? I've heard the rumors about hate too, once in a long while, over the years. Do you know why? I don't, that's sure! Maybe the books can get us half out of the cave. They just might stop us from making the same damn insane mistakes!”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
5. Recognize the propaganda. If it's too absurd to be true, it probably isn't.
"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities."
"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of."
― Edward Bernays ~ from Propaganda (1928)
"Listen to your instincts: if your gut says that there's something wrong - there is!"
― Senora Roy
“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” ―Voltaire
6. Take care of yourself. Learn what keeps you healthy and what will not. Sound body, sound mind.
7. Put your money where your mouth is. One can express displeasure at all sorts of individuals, corporations and governments but every dollar fed into the matrix of their systems makes them more powerful.
"Don't tell me where your priorities are. Show me where you spend your money and I'll tell you what they are." ― James W. Frick
"Put your money where your love is."
― Grateful Dead
8. Don't dwell on the negatives for too long. Know them, face them and move on to solutions. And never...never...fall into the contrived trap of saying "There's nothing I can do."
"Shared problems present you with better shared solutions and they present a better chance for revival to survive future problems."
― Frank Matobo
9. Learn, share, educate to the best of your ability.
"Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well."
10. Have faith of one kind or another. It doesn't necessarily have to be a religion. It may be as simple as faith in yourself and those closest to you.
"Work hard with honesty. Life is too short to go it waste. Make your life meaningful, break your ego, forgive quickly, live truly, laugh loudly, have faith in self and never avoid anything which makes you smile."
― Anil Sinha
11. Love. Make no mistake, it is real. An open heart towards others goes a long way in righting the wrongs, in perhaps even bringing peace not only to ones self but to all.
"Take away your protective layers, and open your heart to reveal your beautiful soul. Through an open heart we can learn the art of being humble, compassionate, joyful, peaceful, creative, and loving."
"Love is vulnerability. Happiness is vulnerability. The risk of being vulnerable is the price of opening yourself to beauty and opportunity. Being vulnerable is not about showing the parts of you that are polished; it's about revealing the unpolished parts you would rather keep hidden from the world. It's about looking out into the world with an honest, open heart and saying, This is me."
Despite the efforts of a few to control the thoughts and words of populations, we are seeing a little bit of a breakdown in the effectiveness. The taboos of zionism, the jewish question, Israel, the 'holocaust,' and everything related to these are coming to the forefront like never before. The truth must never be allowed to be off limits and hidden due to the manufactured constraints that infest us. When silence is the acceptable norm, lies rule.
What's wrong with telling the truth? Absolutely nothing.
Maybe you have some 'home remedies' for breaking the taboos and the silence? We would love to hear them.
