With hate, intolerance, fundamentalism, greed, and tyranny, in its wake.

    When will we become conscious of the slavery that is becoming our way of life? Be Aware! The NWO is a system of slavery.
     -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    The process of liberation is continuous.
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    I think Archer said it better

    The distinction between freemen and slaves is whether or not we are paid for our labor. The sole function of dishonest Abe's legal tender acts was/is to get labor without payment. Horace Greeley, publisher was Lincoln's contemporary and he said that Lincoln's system "is no less cruel than the old system of chatel slavery."

    We will have perpetual warfare as long as soldiers adnd suppliers pretend they are paid with strips of paper,. To pay dollars due is impossible without delivering gold or silver coins. The dollar was permanently fixed by law as a measure of silver in the Coinage act of 1792,

    Interesting statement from the spiritual father of all 20th century genocides.

    Hegel, Nieche, Kant who ever. Philosophers have thought their way into all kinds of trouble. The horrible mess of WWII, Communism, Fascism, Socialism, and Liberalism all are a result of Philosophers having brilliant thoughts. None of them seemed to have enough sense to pay attention to the obvious. There is no man made philosophy that negates the wisdom that is to be found in the bible. Regardless of whether you believe it to be the word of god or not, you can not go wrong following its wisdom. To deviate from its truth is not wisdom. All the secular philosophers were trying to replace god's teaching with their own. Not to bright regardless of their IQ. IF you want mass destruction and tyranny just mix up some Hegel, Nieche and Darwin and you have an Adolph Hitler. He used their philosophy and theory to create a plan to thrust the world into a glorious future where people would be super intelligent and be super men. He just wanted to help evolution out. New age philosophy and New Age religion has been destroying and murdering on a mass scale for thousands of years.

    I agree with Mike, Norwalk.

    Archer sums it up, as also the quote. Hagel being a Protestant was influenced by the reformation that started with Martin Luther , late 14th century. German kings turning away from the mother church at Rome sided with Martin Luther. This also being a part of the traceable path of the doctrines of liberty and freedom. Germany does have a bad reputation and sometimes to smart for their own good. But has played a part in the furtherance of understanding this freedom and liberty we hold true.

    Dave, slaves get paid to as in our nation today. They just don't get all their pay. Because their not at liberty.
