JOHN W. WHITEHEAD: “Come Home, America — Stop Policing the Globe and Put an End to ‘Endless Wars'”

Ascension Avatar

“Let us resolve that never again will we send the precious young blood of this country to die trying to prop up a corrupt military dictatorship abroad. This is also the time to turn away from excessive preoccupation overseas to the rebuilding of our own nation. America must be restored to a proper role in the world. But we can do that only through the recovery of confidence in ourselves…. together we will call America home to the ideals that nourished us from the beginning. From secrecy and deception in high places; come home, America. From military spending so wasteful that it weakens our nation; come home, America.”

—George S. McGovern, former Senator and presidential candidate

I agree wholeheartedly with George S. McGovern, a former Senator and presidential candidate who opposed the Vietnam War, about one thing: I’m sick of old men dreaming up wars for young men to die…

AN AMERICAN RESOLUTION ~ John W. Whitehead on “How to Nullify Government Tyranny and Abuse In 2020”

Ascension Avatar

“The people have the power, all we have to do is awaken that power in the people. The people are unaware. They’re not educated to realize that they have power. The system is so geared that everyone believes the government will fix everything. We are the government.”

—John Lennon

Twenty years into the 21st century, and what do we have to show for it?

Government corruption, tyranny and abuse have propelled us at warp speed towards a full-blown police state in which egregious surveillance, roadside strip searches, police shootings of unarmed citizens, censorship, retaliatory arrests, the criminalization of lawful activities, warmongering, indefinite detentions, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, police brutality, profit-driven prisons, and pay-to-play politicians have become the new normal.

The American President became more imperial. Although the Constitution invests the President with very specific limited powers, in recent years, American presidents (Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc.) claimed the power…

POLITICAL PERCEPTION ~ John W. Whitehead on ‘Draining the Swamp’

Ascension Avatar

“Drain the swamps. Surely, we’ve heard that phrase before? Ah yes. Emblazoned on t-shirts and signs, shouted at rallies, and used as a rallying cry among Trump supporters, ‘drain the swamp’ became one of Donald Trump’s most-used campaign slogans. Far from draining the politically corrupt swamps of Washington DC of lobbyists and special interest groups, the Trump Administration has further mired us in a sweltering bog of corruption and self-serving tactics. Funny how the more things change, the more they stay the same.”

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “The Revolution Has No Hollywood Ending”

Ascension Avatar

“People are hoping that Donald Trump gets arrested for conspiring with Russia and dragged off in chains and everything goes back to normal. People are hoping that President Trump drains the swamp, locks up Hillary Clinton, arrests most of Capitol Hill for child molestation, and destroys the Deep State. People are hoping there’s a violent revolution which restores individual sovereignty to the citizenry. People are hoping there’s a peaceful people’s revolution which ousts the ruling class and replaces the status quo with whatever their personal favored strain of leftism is. Everyone’s subconsciously looking for some big, momentous climax where the Good Guys are vindicated and the Bad Guys are brought to justice. 

And it just isn’t going to go down like that.”

~Caitlin Johnstone

After struggling against our own self-destructive tendencies throughout the entirety of recorded history, humanity is now at a point where that struggle is probably going to…
