Embattled raw milk advocate and accused sheep-napper Michael Schmidt breaks radio silence with a missive to readers of The Bovine:
Having been through enough court proceedings where material from the Bovine has been submitted as evidence, I am honored to pretend once again, that I am the one this time, who is writing another piece for all my friends out there who are currently plotting another action to stop those freedom renegades and food freedom advocates.
I mean I write this for those who seem to enjoy their time in bed with those who support corporate corruption and the destructive exploitation of human lives and the natural resources we are all supposed to be blessed with.
Who am I anyhow to say this?
I have lost my passport — it has been confiscated by the C(F)IA, I have lost my right to communicate to certain people and I am closely watched and under surveillance.
I have gained the status of being a ” Safety Concern” for, for– for, yes, for whom????????.
But let’s back up and reflect.
There is a lot of discussion out there trying to describe our current Canadian state of affairs;
Some say it is Communism
Some say it is Socialism
Some say it is Fascism
Some say it is bureaucratic Anarchy
Some say it is insanity
Some say it is crazy
Some say it is what it is
Some still say; we are the best country in the world
I guess it describes very well the confusion and mental state of our society at large. But it also reflects on the diversity of views and perceptions people have.
In the meantime we try to elect politicians to act on our behalf.
(We are only getting graciously granted the opportunity to pretend that we have a say in the political process, nothing else.)
I do think that “assuming the worst and hoping for the best” is not a bad road to take right now and in the near future.
All the crucial information about our state of affairs is out there and easily accessible for most of us, allowing us to come to the devastating conclusion that we have lost control over our daily life, what we eat, what we do, how we interact and how to conduct our business.
We have given up our rights in exchange for convenience and an illusionary protection governed by complacency and pure laziness, rooted in our culture of entitlement.
Hopeless, so it seems, considering the circumstances.
Strangely enough the more the rope around our neck tightens the more hope I have, that people will wake up.
The steady establishment of a ruling class of well paid self serving civil servants with sweeping powers and no oversight is the result of a political culture of laziness. In fact politicians like addicts keep proposing and passing new laws in order to justify their importance.
My proposal for today is; do not elect anybody who is not promising to start dismantling the insanity of regulations as well as non-Government agencies with unlimited policing powers and no requirement for accountability.
I am done with politicians.
We have no politicians.
We have a political cancer which is destroying our fundamental right to liberty and justice.
Remember, until the civil servants take your passport you are not deemed a threat.
It is only when they threaten you with jail, that you know that finally they have begun to take you seriously.
