We all know what tyranny is. Liberty, in the context I will use it in, means,
1. freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control. 2. freedom from external or foreign rule; independence. 3.freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction, hampering conditions, etc.; power or right of doing, thinking, speaking, etc., according to choice. (from Dictionary.com)
This evening I watched an amazing documentary film, entitled Thrive. For those of you who have not seen nor heard of it, it is the exploration of how the world and all the life in it, works. That’s part One. Then part Two talks about the fundamental problems of how our world functions due to an elite group of individuals who basically rule the world and its resources. Part Three shows how our world could (and in fact already is) become in the not too distant future, if not enough of us wake up and take action. And part Four shows how our world could become if enough of us DO wake up and take action to change the power structure and reclaim our power as human beings.
The man behind this film, Foster Gamble, has done a masterful job of weaving together all the disparate elements of this mess of a world, into an extremely articulate, extensively researched and developed whole. Watching it was like getting an intensive education about the sorry state of our world, and how we can change it, in two hours. Any skepticism I sometimes carry around with me dissolved quickly as I could see that everyone he interviewed throughout the documentary are intelligent, articulate people who obviously know what they are talking about. There is far too much in the film itself to begin to go into details here on my blog. But I am so impressed with the information and how it is presented, and also with the sheer importance of what is being presented, that I implore all of you, Dear Readers, to go to the following web links, watch and read as much as you can. Watch the film, which is now available online for free, because Gamble and his group of people feel the urgency of the times and the relevance of the message.
Please watch Thrive, and then TAKE ACTION. And please, as always, leave me a comment. We are all in this world together, one human family. The need has never been greater to come together with each other and work to eradicate Tyranny across our planet. If you are still skeptical that it is happening, look around you. It is. Only we can stop it, and replace it with Liberty, as in freedom from despotic governments and control. Ask yourself, what kind of future world do you WANT to live in, for you, your children, your great great grandchildren? If we do nothing, we all know what kind of a future we will end up with. But to take action, no matter how small, to change things for the better, will certainly help. Every action for the good will add up and at some point, go viral. I for one cannot stomach the thought of living in a totalitarian world where we are all enslaved to a few extremely powerful few. My response to that world is, in a nutshell, Forget it, No Way. Please take the time to watch this film with an open mind. I, and the rest of the world, Thank you.
