Another apt metaphor would be death by a thousand cuts over 100 years, but to add to the Star Trek analogy game I'm playing with myself, I present to you the Tholian Web of Regs.
It all starts so innocently. You don't want to eat maggoty meat do you? Why nooo, it is good that a non-partisan organization like the US Department of Agriculture is checking for maggoty meat. Thank you USDA! What's that across the sky?
You don't want poor little children to go without milk do you? Why noooo, I'm a good person and instead of heading up a committee at church to handle this need, I will punt it to the federal government who seems so eager to help. Another streak across the sky.
You don't want another bank panic like what happened in '07 do you? Why nooo, we need a committee to investigate. The Pujo Committee its called? They say we need to break up the money trust. There's a plan, huh? The Aldrich Plan, which later became the Federal Reserve Act. Thank you benevolent government people, for keeping my money safe. Huge streak across the sky.
You don't want these super rich
Along comes the New Deal, where they really add some more lines to the grid.
Then comes the Great Society, where they streak up the spots they missed with Medicaid, Medicare, Educational entitlements, etc.
This is not to mention all the lesser known, industry by industry regulation that goes on that not one person in a million would even know about. Remember in our FDR study about how they wanted trade organizations aka cartels to run each industry, the example we've gone over there was the construction industry.
Then when Bretton-Woods happens, and gold is cut out of the equation, all bureaucratic hell is broken loose. The Pandora's Box of Big Government is thrown open. The Reckoning has truly begun. The EPA, Dept. of Ed, and a whole host of bureaucratic offices are added, each one struggling to find ways to insert their little roots into your life. The Tholians have now deployed many, many ships to box you in, tie you down, and prevent your escape from the system. Like the stepmother in Cinderella said, you can go to the ball IF you get your chores done. Sure, you have freedom IF you play in our mouse maze, IF you stay inside your Tholian web of regulation, you can still eat your peanut butter sandwiches
Now that the Tholian Web is woven, and your are a prisoner therein, let the digestion of the prey begin. You will live under Obamacare, you will pay your taxes to pay for it, you will not object to a SWAT team breaking down your door on hearsay, you will not pour a precious metal into a mold, for that is domestic terrorism. You will accept your selected candidates for office and wave the flag proudly. You will be groped or scanned should you wish to board a commercial airliner. You will register your babies to us so that they may have a special identifying number. No need for tattoos, this is the 21st century. You are the fish, and this is our barrel, understand?
Regardless of what you think about the chemtrail controversy, this picture best illustrates the Tholian Web here on planet earth - just imagine every streak a product of the Tholians:
I don't like to whine, so what is the solution? You can't get out of a trap, unless you fully understand the trap. That's the first step. When a critical mass of people understand what's going on here, it makes it harder for those weaving the web to continue, as mass illusion of control is their greatest weapon. Yes, they have drones and all, but they mostly have publicly schooled people in their employ. There are many, many ways in which these puppet-masters are losing their grip. The fact that I, a little homeschool mom doesn't have her kids in school and am watching soap operas right now, but are conveying this perspective to you is one sign that they don't have total control. One person at a time, one family at a time, from the inside out, we can heal our country via the famous verse:
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4:6
Lawlessness will prevail if we don't stand up for the law. Regardless your religious inclinations, if you don't have some sort of code, it all falls apart. Ironic that they're using "law" to convert our society into a lawless tyranny, isn't it?
And a bonus verse from the Lord Himself:
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. Matt 10:16
Time to wise up out there!
