People who limit their exposure to truth and reality do so to avoid the moral responsibility that comes from knowing about the crimes and injustices being perpetrated on themselves, their friends, their family and future generations. The desire to know the reality in which we live and the ability to separate fact from fiction is a natural human instinct that has served us well for thousands of years and protected us as a species. Without the desire to know the difference between what is real and what is an illusion, people are losing the ability to separate the two. Willful ignorance is being used as a coping mechanism by people who know they should be helping to expose the disastrous rise of misplaced power and to work for a better future, but instead choose to sacrifice the lives of their children and grandchildren by sitting on the sidelines and doing nothing.
For those of us who are trying to do something by way of educating and awakening anyone willing to listen…all while being ridiculed, marginalized, and called “conspiracy theorists”, our hope is that future generations will look back and say that these were men and women who, at a time of great crisis, stood up to the politicians, the opinion makers, and the establishment and saved our country.
When sociopolitical systems diverge so profoundly from the cultures they are supposed to serve…and do so for decades at a time…often, trouble is not far behind.

Pleading guilty to killing someone usually means going to prison…unless the perpetrator is a corporation.
This week, BP agreed to 11 counts of manslaughter for the workers killed during the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, when the Deepwater Horizon oilrig blew up.
But no one from the oil giant will serve time for the convictions. Instead, BP will pay a $4 billion fine, which is equivalent to what the company made in revenue every four days last year.
Also, BP will have five years to pay the fine. This news left some family members of those killed on the rig feeling bitter.
“I think BP is the real winner today,” Chris Jones, whose brother, Gordon Jones, was killed in the Deepwater Horizon explosion, told the Houston Chronicle. “They got what they wanted—to resolve the criminal charges,” he added, “and they get a nice five-year payment plan to pay it off.”
In addition to the 11 felony manslaughter counts, BP’s plea deal included one misdemeanor count under the Clean Water Act; one misdemeanor count under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act; and one felony count of obstructing Congress by deliberately understating the amount of oil that flowed after the blowout.
