|Flag Day is an exercise in state worship
Ned will remain in the first reader until he learns this first lesson; that things that equal to the same are equal to each other. Same with the America people.
Carefully chosen words by the establishment are the basis of mass mind control leading to acceptance of all manner of things that would seem appalling at first glance. Words are created and repeated that expand the collective psyche to accept and repeat some more. People who freely use those terms are not in control of their own thinking process.
Men by nature are followers. Therefore, when authority appears, they follow. When absolute authority emerges the people follow without question and even to the point of self-sacrifice. Millions will give their own lives and those of their sons and daughters in war and never question or consider what they are doing. The mystique of government authority holds in its hands life and death — ours.
"Patriotism" throughout history has covered a multitude of mischief. The U.S. establishment has confused cause and effect by and through a flag-waving mania in America. We are seeing it play out once again!
Today is Flag Day. On June 14, 1777 the Continental Congress adopted a resolution designating the flag's design as having 13 stripes alternating red and white and 13 stars of white on a blue field. The new flag was first carried into battle on September 11 of that year in the Battle of the Brandywine.
Flag Day was first recognized by Hartford, Connecticut in the summer of 1861. The timing is significant. It came just months after the Southern states began seceding and formed the Confederacy in February.
In 1916 President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation declaring June 14 as Flag Day. War was raging in Europe. Just two years before – and two weeks before Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated – Wilson had delivered an address on June 14. Asking what the flag would stand for in the future, Wilson replied: "for the just use of undisputed national power … for self-possession, for dignity, for the assertion of the right of one nation to serve the other nations of the world." As president, he would "assert the rights of mankind wherever this flag is unfurled."
This is the philosophy of the U.S. government since, if not officially then certainly unofficially. Rare are the days in the 20th century and none exist in the 21st in which the U.S. hasn't been engaged in wars in which the U.S. has exercised its "undisputed national power," and against nations which have not attacked us and which didn't possess the capability of attacking us.
It wasn't until 1949 that Congress passed and President Harry S. Truman signed into law an official Flag Day declaration, likely for the purpose of rallying the American people around his Cold War with Russia and poking the eye of the isolationist Republicans.
Wars are not for patriotism and "democracy," as we are propagandized. Wars are to kill and for the mass profits of big business.
Phony patriotism is strong leverage against a population ignorant of the ways of treason by our own government. U.S. history is full of wars "for democracy" killing millions under the propaganda of patriotism with the majority support of the people and the full support of all but a small cadre of "elected representatives" — who are paid by the federal government, incidentally. In addition the millions of foreign dead, these wars have left hundreds of thousands of American military members dead or maimed physically and/or emotionally.
The whole world knows about the U.S. military industrial complex war machine and its pursuit of profits. But Americans tend to turn a blind eye.
There is a decadent spirit controlling the perceptions of the American people, keeping them on the animal farm (controlling their perceptions) long enough to impoverish and enslave them. Time and gradualism can change a system all the way from human liberty to slavery (the animal farm) over a few generations without anyone being aware except a very few, those who ask questions.
The flag is symbolic of a government that lies at every turn, that enslaves its people, steals from their labor, passes laws that are an execration to their Christian faith, takes from them their liberty, mandates and funds the murder of 1 million babies a year, imports tens of thousands of immigrants to replace American workers and drive down wages, and that makes war on other countries that have not threatened us.
The flag is symbolic of a Constitution slaughtered on the altar of immorality and collectivism. It's symbolic of a freedom stolen long ago by crony corporations and globalist banksters and unaccountable oligarchical black-robed satanists and idol worshippers who usurped their authority, creating laws out of thin air under the guise of "interpreting the Constitution" a dictate not granted them under the original document.
I love my nation, but I fear what my government has become and where it has taken us. If the flag represents that, why should anyone acknowledge its presence with more than a sneer?
Yours for the truth,
