SOLUTIONS and STRATEGIES
Government and religion
A way to combat a myth-hoax is to expose it... and seek reality.
But does that leave us alone and lost without guides?
No, without the excess baggage of these dogmas, we can have
the unity, harmony, self-reliance, natural spirit and essence of humonity:
a lighter load, enlightenment and freedom.
tao: Study the cause, the source of problems.
John Milton 1644 England
Let truth and falsehood grapple.
Who ever knew truth put to the worse in a free and open encounter?
Tom Paine THE AGE OF REASON 1794
When opinions are free, either in matters of government or
religion, truth will finally and powerfully prevail.
A revolution in the system of government will be followed by a revolution in the system of religion.
I don't believe in the creed professed by the Jewish, Roman, Greek, Turkish, Protestant or any Church I know of.
MY MIND IS MY OWN CHURCH.
Lysander Spooner 1846
All efforts to cure a disease without removing the cause, will always be inadequate.
Frederick Douglas 1857
Find out just what people will submit to,
and you have found the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them.
The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those they oppress.
Kahlil Gibran THE PROPHET: Freedom 1923
If it's a despot you would dethrone, see first that his throne erected within you is destroyed.
Bertrand Russell WHY I AM NOT A CHRISTIAN 1927
Science and our own hearts can teach us no longer to
invent allies in the sky.
We must see the world as it is and not be afraid of it.
We need to look to our own efforts here below to make this world a fit place to live.
We want to stand on our own feet.
Marilyn Ferguson THE AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY 1980
The new awareness has little to do with parties or
Its constituents don't come in blocs.
Power that is never surrendered by the individual cannot be brokered.
Power to the people.
Etienne de la Boetie 1553 France
There are [four] kinds of tyrants: some receive their proud position through elections by the people, others by force of arms, others by inheritance, [others by "divine right"]. Although the means of coming into power differ, still the method of ruling is practically the same. The tyrant has nothing more than the power you confer upon him to destroy you. How does he have any power over you except through you? Tyrants need only be deprived of the public's continuing supply of funds and resources. Resolve to serve no more! and you are at once free. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer. Then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break in pieces.
