The following was found on Facebook:
I think we need to revamp the education system and replace it with the school of Trivium, the school of logic, grammar, and rhetoric. We might have a nation of free thinkers instead of a nation of followers who believe in lies. Now this is a book that I actually purchased and read while serving my tour in Iraq. So I guess I was corrupted by free thought from the beginning. I followed orders while secretly loathing some of my superior’s inability to use reason and logic. Keep in mind soldiers are waking up every day to the fact that everything they have been fighting for is based on lies; this is why they are committing suicide in record rates. The government is loading them up on anti-depressants in the hopes they will forget these lies. Their plight is not a joke, it’s real, and you should support them.
We need to get the truth out, not only for the soldiers that are still dying in wars of proxy, but for all the victims on 9/11 and families who were shattered by this corrupt government which is beholden to the money powers. Corporate tyranny is here, and the founding fathers warned us of this. History has been revised and details have been omitted intentionally in our public schools, and our media won’t tell us because they are on the payroll. We must educate and make people aware of this, and we must exercise our constitutional rights, as they were put in place to defeat these tyrants. This is why I am exercising my rights to free speech today because if I don’t, tomorrow I will not have them.
I take great risk by coming out with all this on such a public forum like facebook. People who are speaking out against this are being silenced every day through different methods such as defamation of character and intimidation. This can be corroborated if you will look into the Brandon Raub story. He was an ex-marine, who was lucid and well-mannered yet FBI agents were sent to his house because he spoke about freedom on facebook. If the same happens for me, I will not be intimidated by these tactics. I will stand, I will speak and I will have the courage to stand through it. I am going to be a real information warrior, educating is my goal, and I hope my family and friends will support me in all of this. Thanks to the people who have read through this, and I hope I have not offended any of you through any of my past posts. I know people can have some pretty strong beliefs, but I am not your enemy. I am only trying to help. –Facebook post
You are not alone.
It’s TERRIBLE how corrupt our nation has become. It’s HORRIBLE that our citizens CHOOSE to be followers instead of logical leaders. I will never understand why people refuse to or do a poor job of researching information. This country, our fellow Americans need to get a clue & dig us out of the dumps. Thank you so much for your service to our country. Even if it was partly based on lies we appreciate your sacrifice. Thank you for your website-EXTRELY helpful. I’m a first time homeschooling Mom & I need all the help I can get. HA!
I’ll pass your comments on to the soldier who wrote it.
I’m with you on this. In regards to being “followers” though, we must admit we all follow someone or something. Even leaders themselves follow. The important thing is that each of us must be free-thinking enough to be able to properly recognize who our leaders are, what they’re telling us to do/follow, and whether continuing to follow them is a good or a bad idea. We always must be ready to make an informed assessment and act on it. In a world of depraved humanity, where power corrupts, we must follow in a very qualified and frequently-checking way. The only unquestionable Leader who can have ultimate power and still not be corrupted, and whose every idea is Good, is the Good Shepherd and Judge of all the earth, the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Thank you Daniel. I’ll pass your comments on to the soldier who wrote the piece.
