I was searching through Google News this morning and stumbled upon an article written by Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center called, “The Principles of Freedom vs. Public/Private Partnerships”
In it, I believe he does a pretty good job of describing how the New World Order is a threat to our freedom, and indeed, how many of the freedoms we take for granted have already been eroded.
“Freedom.” We use that word a lot. Do we all really know what that word means? It’s used in so many different ways. Do we understand how it is attained?
Most importantly, do we understand how it is used by some to actually take freedom away?
Why do some who profess to advocate freedom actually accept policies, which diminish freedom and call it “restoring the Republic?”
Simply put, freedom is the ability to act without hindrance or restraint. Freedom is owning your life, your actions, your labor.
We say we support the “principles” of freedom. But what are those principles and where did they come from?
First of all, we must understand principles are not legislated or invented. Principles are discovered. Someone doesn’t just come up with an idea and start to sell it as a principle. A principle exists and you are subject to it, whether or not you know it.
He goes on to show some example of discovering “principles”, and then turns to some current day examples of how our building FREEDOM around the globe is really taking freedom away through government-sanctioned monopolies.
“…it’s done incrementally, a piece at a time, in an easy to disguise program here – a suggestion there. There are few debates or discussions. Even elected officials rarely know the true agenda they are helping to put in place.
Slowly, the whole comes together. By the time people realize the truth, it’s already in place. Policy is set.
And Public/Private Partnerships are becoming the fastest growing process to impose such policy. State legislatures across the nation are passing legislation, which calls for the implementation of PPPs.
Beware. These bonds between government and private international corporations are a double-edged sword. They come armed with government’s power to tax, the government’s power to enforce policy and the government’s power to enforce eminent domain.
At the same time, the private corporations use their wealth and extensive advertising budgets to entrench the policy into our national conscience. Cute little jingles or emotional commercials can be very useful tools to sell a government program.
Their power is awesome and near absolute. Some call such policy corporatism. Another term would be corporate fascism.
What public/private partnerships are not, however, is capitalism or free enterprise, though it may have some of the trappings of such. The marketplace is still there. Its laws have not been repealed. But ultimately, corporatism does not trust the marketplace to do what the elites want.
Thus the alignment of corporations and government is done at the expense of ordinary people – the exact opposite of free markets controlled by consumers. I’ll say it again it is not free enterprise. It’s not “free trade.”
Folks, our freedom is being eroded daily and unless we stand up and do something about it, the day will come in our children’s lifetime that freedom will only be found in the history books.
