Today, July 4th, it’s time to begin to take back our liberty from government bullies, elected officials, and corporate seducers who are seizing it from us under the guise of security. This slippery slope of claims justifying government spying on the citizenry will eventually result in dehumanizing the populace, as argued powerfully by philosopher Michael Lynch in this NYTimes article. ¶ A protest action is called for on this holiday famous for celebration of liberty. Funds might be contributed to such respected public defenders as the Electronic Frontier Foundation or the American Civil Liberties Union (which is suing the US Government over these 4th amendment abuses of our privacy). The best way to celebrate liberty is by defending it!
This quote by President John F. Kennedy, below, may contain a chilling insight, considering how Occupy Wall Street was prevented from holding banksters accountable, and how the US Air Force has hired contractors as “sock puppets” to insert false comments into social media:
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable. ~JFK
AMENDMENT IV, United States Constitution:
