I kept reflecting on my last posting which created more reaction than the usual postings. I have to agree that on the surface my statement can be misconstrued because of the political correctness aspect.
I admit that at first read one could get the impression that there is a certain biased or prejudice against a certain group of immigrants.
I like to be upfront here and make it very clear that I have a very high tolerance level when it comes to accepting ethnic and racial differences. I am in fact fascinated and intrigued by the cultural differences and the beauty of the human mosaic in our society.
The point I was trying to make was a matter of principle.
History seems to repeat itself over and over again.
Being born in Germany 9 years after the end of the Hitler regime I have done a significant amount of personal research about the tragical state of the human mind which we call complacency .
Complacency is the actual state of mind which allows the development of uncontrolled power. It furthers the silent consensus into slavery.
It encourages those obsessed with controlling others to expand their power. It creates a dangerous vacuum of silence in the face of injustice. It encourages the false illusion of security as long others get punished or executed. It is the breeding ground for state terror.
It let’s evil progress by doing nothing.
Almost every society around the world went through a state of dictatorship at least once. Many seem to slide from one dictatorship into the next.
Dictatorship traditionally has been a one man show followed blindly by those executing the insanity of usually obsessed man. If you really look at the circumstances it was not the power of one man creating his own state of terror. It was the complacency which created this dangerous breeding ground for terrorism by a central power.
Here in Canada and in the US we have by now the perfect breeding ground for this scenario.
Over-entertained, over-indulged, over drugged and manipulated by mass media society has an extreme low level of alertness and sensitivity towards the ever increasing obsession of the state to impose total control over every aspect of life.
We can talk about political correctness until the cows come home but it does not change the paralyzed state of our society.
We let happen here what happened in Germany, we let happen what happened in many other countries and we still brag about our responsibility to protect each and everyone from ourselves.
We have the fear that we have too much to loose if we start rebelling against state controlled powers, we have the illusion by being silent we are good citizens. We have the illusion that courts know it all.
The raw milk issue might as well be a lightning rod for more things to come. Silence in the face of corporate controlled dairy policy, silence in the face of pharma controlled health policy, silence in the face of state granted liberties is the reality of a well functioning dictatorship well on it’s way.
It does not matter if those working eagerly for this state control are Chinese, Sri Lankan, Pakistani, Iranian, German, or from any other country with the history of repression and human rights violation, if they are now part of violating the basic rights of others we cannot and should not be silent.
One could expect more sensitivity from those escaping dictatorial regimes than from those growing up in the overindulgence of consumerism in the western world.
I begin to question if we in fact can avoid a total destruction of our fundamental liberties in the face of such a severe and chronic apathy and complacency.
That’s why raw milk is such a political nightmare for politicians and bureaucrats. People wake up to the reality that corruption and lies have destroyed our basic human right to eat what we think is good for us and for our children.
The call to arms is nothing else than WAKE UP OR YOU GET MILKED
