Living The Dream

America is a beautiful idea that draws immigrants like myself from all over the world to the promised land of equality, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This idea is now under siege and certain events are starting to remind me of the things many of us came here to escape… It’s not a “left against right” problem but an evolutionary problem. The growing pains of a civilization that without the necessary spiritual enlightenment, arrived a bit early to a level of technology where everyone is connected. The good news is that now everyone has a voice. The bad news is that now everyone has a voice. So we are living in the manipulators’ paradise, where liars and hypocrites run unscathed, the news are just opinions, politics are a blood sport, and facts are determined by consensus instead of the truth. We as artists, however, have a unique opportunity to portray and ridicule the absurd to prevent it from becoming reality. – Zoltan Bathory

    Reminds me of the statement that you can vote your way into communism or socialism, but you can’t vote your way out of it. I think it was made by Kitty Werthmann in the video where she describes being a teenager in pre-ww2 Austria, during a depression, and they voted to become part of the empire. At the end of it, she says, “Don’t ever give up your guns!”.

    Prevent it or expose it?
    , it has already happened, and or is happening, yet the sheeple can not see it unless they are slapped in the face as this video does.
    Yesterday, heard that many sports venues are going cashless! just another Sign of the times and the days we are living.

    Such an Insightful Video. The poignant portion for me was the Fallen picking up the Flag to continue the Fight against Tyranny.
    The quote from Thomas Jefferson on watering the Tree of Liberty with the blood of Patriots and Tyrants….
    If We want Liberty it has a price…….. in blood, and it’s clearly obvious Now that it’s Not always “foreign devil’s,” that are the enemy.
