HAPPIER ABROAD  Why You Will Have A Better Love and Life Beyond America

Four Catch-22's in America you are not supposed to see


America has a way of proclaiming to be the opposite of what it really is as a form of diversion from the truth and mind control technique to keep you from perceiving reality. The intellectual Author Noam Chomsky notes this about the "liberal media myth", that in reality the media is very conservative and tightly aligned with business interests, which is clear from the evidence, yet they continually propagate the myth that it is liberal as though it were a given fact of common knowledge. See Chomsky's explanation here in this video.


Likewise, there are many Catch-22's in America that you are conditioned not to see which are polar opposites in claims vs. reality. They serve the purpose of inducing a "happy slave" mentality in the populace while subduing freedom of thought, a necessary illusion to maintain conformity to the business culture of America.


I will point out and describe a few:


1) You are taught that freedom is the epitome of human life, that it's worth dying for even, hence Patrick Henry's legendary quote "Give me liberty or give me death". Freedom is your "inalienable right", which is declared in the US Constitution.


Yet on the other hand, you are also taught that one MUST submit to corporate slavery, aka employment, in order to make a living. Without a job, your life has no purpose and you are labeled as lazy and idle. You are basically obligated to a lifetime of servitude to a corporation or public organization, which is a hierarchical dictatorship, in which there is no freedom or democracy. By doing so, you give your life away to the economy, and become a robot in a private dictatorship, in order to "make a living" and receive material rewards. Otherwise, you become a bum and are punished with deprivation of your material needs.


A few are able to run their own business and live off it, or generate an easy source of residual income. But most are not, and must submit to corporate slavery, giving their lives away to servitude.


There is definitely no freedom in that, for true freedom means you are free of any and all bondage and can do and think whatever you want, at least most of the time. Becoming a corporate drone obviously, is the antithesis of that.


The ideal citizen in America is a "happy slave", one that pays lip service to his/her freedom, but not actually BEING free, instead living a life of servitude and slavery to higher authorities.


2) You are expected to mind your own business, not need others, and leave other people alone. You are expected to be strong and independent, and to never get lonely. And you are taught not to talk to strangers, but to be paranoid of them. Normal means that you keep social interaction confined within closed social cliques, established usually early on in life in high school or college. Communication with strangers is usually business related.


In your culture, people live in a bubble, neighbors don't usually know each other, and every man is an island. There is an ice barrier between strangers. Hence people are not comfortable meeting new people and trying to do so feels awkward and tight. Even in extracurricular activities, people only meet for convenience and then go their separate ways afterward. It's a very isolating culture, and thus connecting and bonding with others does NOT come natural at all.


Yet on the other hand, if you go to places and public events alone, you are seen as a loser, like there's something wrong with you. It's a Catch-22, putting you between a "rock and a hard place" and unfairly blaming YOU for it.


If you complain about loneliness or having no friends or dates, then people will down you and claim that you must have a horrible personality or no social skills, in order to make themselves feel better than you. By giving them a target to ostracize (you), you give them a temporary feeling of "belonging to the pack" which has kicked you out. It's a very dysfunctional victim blaming mentality. Thus it's a taboo to ever admit that you're lonely and have no social life, one that is punishable with blame and ridicule.


Furthermore, the media and movies portray the image that everyone is friendly in America, and that friends and dates are easy to get, so when they aren't, you blame yourself and assume something must be wrong with you. The cultural mythos says that "people are very friendly and if you were a person with great qualities, then everyone would want to hang out with you, and you'd have a lot of friends, so if you don't, then your personality and social skills must be lacking."


This myth and assumption ignores the fact that America is in reality a very nonsocial and segregated culture designed for business, not social connection or healthy relationships. This is evidenced by the fact that most lonely people in America report a far better social life when they go overseas to more open and passionate cultures. And it's also confirmed by the fact that loneliness and mental illness are silent epidemics which are more prevalent in America than in other nations.


Therefore, logically, in an antisocial culture where people do not like to bond or befriend others, where communication is usually business related, wouldn't it be more normal and natural to not have good friends and social life?


Thus the problem is due to the social culture, not with you (assuming that you are a decent social person with no major personality defects). Yet society has programmed you to see it backwards, that the problem is you and not the culture.


That is wrong and deceitful. But then again, America is not about truth, but about conforming to whatever consensus the media and government give you.


3) You are told that you live in a free country with free speech, that your culture is the epitome of freedom and democracy, envied by all other countries (which is BS). This means you are free to say, think and do whatever you want, as long as you don't intrude on the rights of others.


Yet if you don't believe whatever you are told by authority (government), your corporate media, and the engineered social consensus in your culture, then you are ridiculed and condemned for not following the herd. This means that you have a patriotic and civic duty to support every Godless evil murderous war that America gets involved in as well, even if it is in the wrong.


Nevermind the fact that innocent civilians, including women and children, die in America's wars that serve corporate greed, power and control. None of that should outrage you, because your leaders support it and therefore you have a patriotic duty to do so as well. You must OBEY and CONFORM!


For to you, truth is whatever authority and consensus tell you, not whatever the actual truth really is. And your duty is to conform to that, not challenge it. After all, if the mainstream media doesn't challenge it, then who are you to?!


In other words, you can pay lip service to freedom and free speech, as long as you CONFORM to authority and consensus. This means that it's ok to be a hypocrite, but not a nonconformist! It's one of the BIGGEST LIES imaginable.


Yet you aren't supposed to see this discrepancy and Catch-22, which in Orwellian terms is a form of "double think" in which the government says one thing and does another, yet programs you not to see the discrepancy.


It's the ultimate form of mind control. And it makes me sick.


4) You are told by many patriotic God fearing Americans that "America is the land of the free and epitome of freedom" yet they also say that "America is a Christian nation" or at least that it is based on Christian ethics and values.


Though there is debate over whether the Founding Fathers were Christians or Deists, America is still seen by many as being founded on Christian principles and ideals, which are ingrained in our culture, ethics and morals.


Yet the slightest cursory glance at the Bible and Christian faith reveals that it is inherently fascist in nature. The Bible teaches that if you do whatever you want or live your life however you want, you are living in sin and rebellion against God. Throughout the Bible, the message is that if you don't obey God and follow his commandments, you will be punished and damned. The Christian message is that freedom is evil, while obedience and giving your life and will to God is good. Likewise, in fascist Nazi Germany, anyone who didn't obey was shot or imprisoned. Dissension was not allowed. Fear of punishment was the motivator. Therefore, Christianity is essentially a "fascist religion".


Christianity and Fascism share the following core attributes:


a) Obey or be punished.

b) No independent thoughts. Must think with the hive.

c) No tolerance for dissension or free speech.

d) Your God or dictator is to be feared, for fear keeps you in line and protects authority.

e) The use of fear and guilt as psychological control mechanisms.

f) The view that the individual is weak and powerless, and his/her life is without purpose, unless aligned to serve a "higher power" (e.g. God, tyrant or dictator).


Now this isn't to say that Jesus himself was a fascist. Assuming he existed (which is not a proven fact), he could very well have been a well meaning person spreading a good spiritual message to help people. It's what the Church and elite power structure DID with his name and the religion around him that they established that turned Christianity into a fundamentalist religion and a fascist form of control over others.


So anyway, how can you believe in religious fascism and a "land of the free" at the same time?! How can you deem freedom as the highest value yet preach a religion where freedom is considered evil and obedience to God is the only good? How can you claim the right of free speech yet support a religion that doesn't allow dissension? You can't. It's a total contradiction. Yet they preach it nonetheless. It's another example of Orwellian "double think". Therefore, living with the ideals of freedom and fascism at the same time is a Catch-22.


This is just the tip of the iceberg. When you look deeper, the contradictions become even more numerous.


For example, how can you support the American value of individualism and at the same time the Christian belief that the individual is nothing unless he/she submits to the Christian God and obeys him? If you truly believed in individual free will, you cannot endorse the punishment of individuals who freely choose not to surrender to the "hive mentality" of the Christian Church. There's no way around it if you think about it. (but then again you are not meant to think about it, only to obey all that you are told)


Furthermore, as the Apostle Paul said in his Epistles (Romans 6), we are "slaves to sin" before accepting Christ. But once you accept Christ and start following God's commandments, you are "set free" from sin and become "slaves to righteousness" as Paul put it. In other words, when you are free, you are "slaves to sin", but when you submit your will to God and give up your freedom, then you are "set free from sin"! How can you be "set free" by submitting to fascism?! What could be more ridiculous than that?! Golly. The mind control here couldn't be more obvious.


Also, how can you preach the "love of God" and the "fear of God" at the same time? You can't love and fear something at the same time. Love and fear are totally different vibrations of energy that are not compatible. Fear operates on a lower denser vibration while love is on a higher faster more dynamic frequency.

Moreover, these same "religious patriots" also declare Capitalism to be based on the Christian values and principles of hard work and virtuous labor. Yet Capitalism teaches that greed and the accumulation of wealth is a GOOD thing, and encourages self-interest as a primary motivator of the free enterprise system. But on the other hand, the Bible teaches that greed is a BAD thing and leads to sin and destruction, which is taught in many examples and parables in the Bible. As Jesus said, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

Though Bible verses can be interpreted in different ways, there is no question that greed is taught to be a bad thing in the Bible. So again we have two mutually exclusive values. Yet these religious patriots don't see it or reconcile it. They are under mass mind control too, and are not as free as they think they are.

Here's another oddity. We are taught in schools that man arouse from Evolution and random mutations of nature. Yet we have "In God We Trust" on the dollar bill, the swearing of Bibles in the courtroom, the words "one nation under God" in the pledge of allegiance, and virtually all politicians and US Presidents professing to believe in God (since Atheists can't get elected). And good citizens are expected to go to church too. Another Orwellian double think?

You gotta remember that religion was set up not to free you, but to contain you. And authority is set up to control people, not to serve them. This is why fascist religions like Christianity and Islam constantly seek to convert and dominate others, both in their homeland and abroad, for that is the inherent nature of fascism and tyranny. It's all about control and conquest, not just of lives, but of minds as well.


Religion limits and closes your mind into a rigid belief system that EDITS OUT any new information that doesn't fit into it. It restricts you from seeing reality and others the way they are, removing objectivity and clarity of thought. Yet you are sold the opposite, that religion will "free you". If that isn't mind control and brainwashing, then I don't know what is.


Learn to free your mind, and you will recognize anything in disguise that tries to enslave and control you, and see through their lies.
