Slavery is Freedom: Submit to the State and be Free from Terrorism
By The Daily Bell Staff - June 05, 2017

Clearly, the only sane thing to do after a terrorist attack is to take rights away. Maybe if we build a prison around society, we will all be safe. Maybe it is just a matter of the government having more power over the citizens, and they will finally rid the world of terrorism.

Or maybe the UK’s priorities are all wrong. For instance, did you know that in the United Kingdom, you are required to pay a tax to acquire a TV License in order to watch broadcast and online media? And they are not messing around. Look at these posters and billboards.

The BBC is watching.

Yet Prime Minister Theresa May seems to think the UK is simply not invasive enough of their citizen’s personal lives. They are going full-on “Big Brother” over TV licenses; they know who you are.

But they don’t know who the terrorists are. The government identifies in a database every last home without a TV license, but they cannot track and stop terrorists.

Theresa May is now calling for stricter regulations regarding the internet, in the wake of the most recent terrorist attack. She wants to force internet providers and websites to remove any loosely defined “extremist” or “radicalizing” content, and she wants to internationally outlaw end to end encryption.

“We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed – yet that is precisely what the internet, and the big companies that provide internet-based services provide,” Ms May said.

“We need to work with allies democratic governments to reach international agreements to regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning.”

Already the Prime Minister has expanded internet surveillance to Orwellian levels, allowing police to snoop around in anyone’s search history, fishing for a crime.

The [Investigatory Power] Act, championed by Ms May, requires internet service providers to maintain a list of visited websites for all internet users for a year and gives intelligence agencies more powers to intercept online communications. Police can access the stored browsing history without any warrant or court order.

They want to stop the spread of “extremism”. But as we see with the Scottish police arresting a YouTuber over a joke video, and governments investigating comedians, what the government considers extreme on the internet has nothing to do with terrorists.

They can regulate the internet until the cows come home, and the only thing that will happen is innocent people will lose their rights, and get caught up in government punishment for perfectly normal free speech.

And anyway, they will probably just use their snooping powers to make sure people paid their TV license fee, and forget all about the terrorists.

So yet again, governments are selling more control as a way to keep people safe, when in reality, it threatens privacy and therefore liberty. Clearly, the British government cares more about collecting taxes than keeping the public safe.

The government is less concerned about stopping real terrorism than they are about making sure the masses won’t rebel against their failure to address real issues, and their unwillingness to stop preventing the people from protecting themselves.

But hey, who can blame May, she’s already out of ideas! After all, guns are already banned in Great Britain. And it totally worked, all these people were killed with vans, knives, and bombs, not guns.

Protect Yourself. The Government Cannot and Will Not.

Even the police are defenseless in jolly old England. They ran away from the terrorists, forcing the citizens they help keep disarmed to throw chairs and pint glasses in defense. The first officer on the scene was armed only with a baton.

Witnesses said they saw two men stabbing people outside the well-known Roast restaurant in Borough market. A chef from the nearby Fish restaurant said: “I saw two guys with big knives downstairs outside Roast. They were stabbing people. The police were running away, they were community police. They were normal officers, they were running away.

“The guy with the knife was killing two people. We were shouting ‘stop, stop’ and people threw chairs at them.”

We would rather see citizens spray some hot lead towards a terrorist, but maybe we are the strange ones. And actually, some governments are responding by empowering their citizens instead of tightening the chain.

A couple of months ago, Czech President Milos Zeman made an unusual request: He urged citizens to arm themselves against a possible “super-Holocaust” carried out by Muslim terrorists.

Never mind that there are fewer than 4,000 Muslims in this country of 10 million people — gun purchases spiked. One shop owner in East Bohemia, a region in the northern center of the Czech Republic, told a local paper that people were scared of a “wave of Islamists.”

Now the country’s interior ministry is pushing a constitutional change that would let citizens use guns against terrorists. Proponents say this could save lives if an attack occurs and police are delayed or unable to make their way to the scene. To become law, Parliament must approve the proposal; they’ll vote in the coming months.

Okay, great job, but really, they need to pass a law allowing people to shoot terrorists? Natural rights dictate that when you are unjustly attacked, you should fight back.

But still, we will give the Czech Republic credit. When it comes to relatively small countries, a high rate of gun ownership is the most effective homeland defense.

It’s still not right to be paranoid about a terrorist attack or to stop going out in public because of them. The chances of being caught up in this type of thing are still very low.

But that is no reason to leave yourself defenseless. As they say, hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Get yourself a gun or two if you haven’t already. Then buy lots of ammo, or better yet, ammo making/ reloading equipment. Then practice, and hope you never need the skill. But if history repeats itself, you will have an option other than being a helpless pleading victim.

To be even safer, get the whole community involved. Start a club. Maybe once a week you can all muster for some training and group physical training.

Get cell411, an app that allows you to connect with your friends and neighbors in case anyone needs help. Build the network of people you trust to come to your aid if you set off an alert on the app, and be ready to respond when they send out an alert. Alerts can be for general danger, medical issues, or even police brutality and illegal searches. Press a button, and your team will be alerted to respond to whatever threat.

At the end of the day, we can trust that the military will keep us safe, and we can hope that the cops show up when we need them (and hope they don’t shoot us instead of the attacker), but the only way to truly be safe is to take responsibility into your own hands.

That way, you will also have the ability to protect yourself against the truly biggest threat to life, liberty, and property, instead of relying on them to protect you.

    Excellent analysis and advice; thank you.

  • James Clander

    If the UK & France et al were NOT engaged in bombing & killing civilians in Muslim Countries there is a very good chance that there would be NO reprisal killings.

    It’s unpatriotic apparently to say this BUT it’s Blowback & deserved in the eyes of the so called Terrorists. Not one word of this solution (Stop Bombing & Invading) in the British Press or their Blind followers.

    BTW — the USA is number 1 Terrorist on the Planet- Just Check their record !

    • Sadly, many people would think saying such is being a terrorism apologist.

    • GH

      The plight of Native Americans provide a great example of U.S. terrorism and the propaganda which supported it. Hordes of Europeans (and others) invaded North and South America stealing the land from indigenous inhabitants and killing them when the natives fought back…or merely got in the way. The native inhabitants became propagandized as murderous, savage, godless, subhumans who needed to be exterminated. Due to the “blowback” those indigenous people gave as retaliation for the destruction of their lives and culture, and the theft of their land, they would today be called terrorists, when in fact those who invaded them are the true terrorists. America is an idea; the description of a haven for those desiring the liberty to live free, peaceful, uninhibited productive lives. The United States is a government doing what governments always do…use coercion to subdue populations for the purpose of securing and enhancing their own power. Many of the Founders had a proper vision of America, and worked to make it reality. However, as soon and the U.S. government began, power usurpers did their best to unravel that vision for their own purposes of personal gain via gaining control over the population. The internet, albeit a double edged sword, is allowing for the population to re-awaken and begin to see the vision of America through the fog of propaganda. All is not lost…in fact a new beginning for liberty could well be at hand.

      • John Stott

        It is to pay for BBC output. Good drama for one, news? Iffy that, it dates back to the radio license and communication was seen as a cash cow. One advantage of said BBC, no stupid bloody commercials every two minutes, now during drama or sports events that is quite nice. Time to judge others not US,methinks one look at your corporate handlers, your trigger happy coppers, well says a lot to a Brit.

    What will happen to Europe the next time a Napoleon, a Hitler, a Franco or a Mussolini seizes power? The U.S. is every bit the panty-waist that France and England were (and remain.) Spain, Switzerland, the Baltics and Nordics couldn’t (and wouldn’t) in combination load one chamber of a six-gun. Russia couldn’t win even a snowball fight. India and China might lob babies toward Europe, a population bomb is their big weapon. Is the Mid-East a threat? A culture desirous of the desertification of the world? A few rainy days might chase them home. The American and European Will to be Dominated will destroy us before anybody external does so.

  • Don Duncan

    The vast majority want the opposite of responsibility, politically. They want someone to tell them and everybody else what to do. They want to blame govt. for every problem, even personal ones. That is self enslavement. They render themselves helpless and then complain, complain, complain. It is pitiful & pathetic.

    • CAWS

      Centuries of religious doctrine teaching us to obey & belong. 70 years of fluoridation in USA that has been proven by over 50 studies to lower IQ, destroy thyroids, kidneys & skeletons making us weak , apathetic & stupid. Poisonous air ,food & drugs[ especially vaccinations], have made it easy to program the population.

  • real427 man

    Maybe they should not have let all those idiots in their country in the first place, of course the U S is just as dumb.

  • Praetor

    I love those Czech’s.

    The U.S. need to bring back gun (weapon) safety to our schools. When I was in high school, I joined the rifle club, they also had an archery club. We learned about firearms and how to handle them safely most already new how to back then and we got to compete with other schools. Each year we would go to the local elementary school and teach the home room classes gun safety.

    Bring back weapon safety in our elementary schools. It would actually save some lives.!!!

  • eyesofgod

    Again, you hit the bulls eye with this article. It’s all about right education, self-responsibility, and holding each other accountable. Because of the huge size of government these days, the individual can’t see how he or she can reign in the government in these terms. But, together, we can. Working (starting) at the local level, we can hold each other accountable, make agreements, cooperate, share energies, and thereby live a safer and more creative life. It starts right here at home. But, we can also, of course, work on the international level–mainly, thru the Internet. The principle is seeing this whole humanity as a unity–and speaking and acting accordingly. The presumption of prior unity–rather than conflict between opposing identities–needs to be the basis for life in human society.

  • Remember 1940? We Brits were hammered by the roaring Blitzkreig – we ran away at Dunkirk but still called it a victory. The Brits are very slow to anger; being probably one of the most tolerant nations on earth. But wait ’till we are roused – 1944 saw a different picture altogether, a lesson the Teutonic hords have still not forgotten. Give it time.

  • As to TV licences – There is a vast history attached to this:
    “The GPO also issued licences for home radio receivers powered by mains electricity [47] and was mandated by laws beginning with the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1904,”
    It’s an historical anomaly, as is much of British life – quaint actually and often hilarious:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_licensing_in_the_United_Kingdom

  • And further BTW: During WW2 not one German agent was active in UK due to the XX system. The Brits are clever too when it comes to security – they will find an effective way to manage these primitive degenerates in our midst.

    • rouge1

      They were so clever that the Germans bombed the crap out of England where they had to beg America for help. They put advertising in magazines for Americans to donate guns to the clever British because they destroyed all of their forearms. Then after the war instead of giving back the guns they destroyed them. We fought 2 wars against invading British scum, so look to me for help you fools.

      • Steady on old chap – “forgive and forget Major” [Basil Fawlty – The Germans are coming]

  • JohnnyZ

    There are many levels at which such events can be analyzed:
    1. MSM politically correct view: such events are unfortunate, but we need to keep our borders open (to these Islamist fundamentalists), because we care so much for human rights and multiculturalism is such a great thing -> this serves to render the politically correct sheeple helpless and full of self-doubt and guilt, it is a form of gaslighting
    2. The not fully comatose sheep: oh this is just blowback, we should wage these illegal, fake “humanitarian” wars of aggression and destruction -> true, but these wars are not a coincidence, they are all part of the plan (see below) plus the “blowback” would be easily neutered if desired so
    3. These events are LIHOPs (allowed to happen): a little fear of the herd + support for the military effort + some divide & conquer fully satisfy the elite’s agenda -> potentially true, but more likely see below
    4. These are false flag attacks: the police state controls all such activities with ease, all the “terrorists” are actually on the govt pay-roll (e.g. check ISIS) -> true and they do it from time to time (check operation Gladio and the bombing of the Bologna train station)
    5. These are more often hoaxes, using crisis actors and patsies: the masses are so dumb and stuck in their virtual worlds (Facefook, iPhone etc.) and believe every MSM word / picture, that there is no need to spill real blood anymore (risking real investigations by relatives, controlling the narrative and the “victim’s” messages etc.). You just need to fire some shots in the sky or yell “run!” and then the whole thing starts rolling. E.g. check the Boston “bombing” or Sandy Hook or…

    • It is very hard to tell these days what is real. It does seem suspicious that the state always has the biggest motive.

      • JohnnyZ

        The trend towards hoaxes is more recent. Sometimes there are hoaxes mixed with LIHOPs / false flags like the 11-13-15 Paris attacks. Still the amount of hoaxes or mostly hoaxed events is now staggering, I have lost count. Here a partial list: most recent London bridge attack, Manchester concert attack, 3-22 Westminster car attack, Berlin Christmas market attack, 3-22 Brussels airport bombing, Paris / Bataclan, Nice truck attack, Charlie Hebdo videotaped police officer head shot, Melbourne car attack, Times Square car crash, Orlando Pulse shooting, San Bernardino shooting, Batman movie theater shooting, Munich mall attack and countless US shootings, incl. police vs. blacks shootings.
        The more important point though is that government is only a façade erected by the brotherhoods / networks of the owners class and their lackeys to let them operate behind the scenes, while the gullible sheeple have somebody to blame and “elect” every 4-5 years all the way deluding themselves that they “have a say”. They don’t. Police, army, secret services, media, central banks, scientists, educators, corporate CEOs, religious heads, doctors etc. are all (at least at the top of the hierarchy) part of the corrupt masonic / Jesuit / satanic networks, while the lower ranks are unconsciously supporting the system, driven by greed, materialism and corrupted references about things like good/evil, priorities in life, human nature, how a civilization can function, the true nature of our world (e.g. earth is flat, evolution is a hoax, dinosaurs are a hoax, there is no space or planets nor a big bang, climate change is a hoax, AIDS is a hoax, many diseases incl. cancer are artificially created and/or easily curable, historical events are faked, the catholic church is satanic, Russia and China are controlled opposition as is ISIS, nuclear bombs are potentially a hoax, transgenderism is spread at high places (e.g. royals), pop and celebrities culture is manufactured and pure satanic trash etc.).

    Marxism’s capital is London.

  • Spanky Lee

    Spot-on.

    The reason ‘terrorism’ is so devastating is us. While 35,000 Americans are slaughtered on the highway every year without so much as a peep from Washington, a handful of barbaric events–mostly outside the US– are the object of weeks or months of hysterical television and hysterical government. 35,000 deaths on the highway versus 30-100 ‘terror’-related deaths…

    You are, based on statistics that INCLUDE September 11, LESS likely to die in a terrorist attack than you are to be struck by lightening..

    Why then is western society (aka Christian society) convulsing over such a minor threat as terrorism while essentially ignoring huge risks like highway death?

    The answer is because humans are not innately rational beings and most people have no experience with or interest in thinking. It’s just not their thing. Spoon-fed pablum is their thing. And if the bland fare of daily doses of “Ellen” and “Dr. Oz” are punctuated with occasional spicy hysterical ‘news’ about beheading, well that just makes the whole slimy media meal that much more tasty to the tasteless. Let’s face it: most of us are slugs.

    Republican democracy may fail and if it does, its the slugs who are to blame. Democracy may be outdated and it may NEED to fail—but if it does, it is also because the slugs have gummed-up the works and fouled the levers and gears of representative government.

    Does it matter that there are clever, driven people in our government and in our media who profit greatly from terrorism by demagoguery and fear mongering? Not as much as we might think. They are simple opportunists. The slugs are problem.

    Modern life is incredibly complex and the only tool we have to cope with it sits between our ears and behind our eyes. If we don’t use that tool we will never see beyond our prejudices and we will fall victim to every logical fallacy and trick that was ever invented. Alas, it’s a little late to complain now.

    • Thank you, and great point! All about emotions, easily manipulated.

    • JohnnyZ

      “The answer is because humans are not innately rational beings and most people have no experience with or interest in thinking.”

      This is getting partially in the direction of blaming “human nature” for our ills. But what you call nature is actually nurture in a satanic cattle farm with corrupted references (see my response to Daily Bell below). What people have is an ego that is split from the rest of the consciousness and is adapted to a false and satanic in its nature paradigm, which is controlled and socially engineered from the top down all the time and for quite some time now (centuries / millennia?). The unused part of consciousness (which is much larger than the ego) demonizes in the depths of the unconscious and gets triggered / channeled from time to time by acts like war and perversion. The ego is mistaken for one’s identity. Additionally, the desire of humans to be accepted in society is exploited by the elite to make them politically correct, unquestioning parts of a herd through various mind manipulation and propaganda techniques. The “elites” have always controlled the allowable range of discourse, because they know that ideas shaped in discourses materialize and thus form our social reality.

      A very good blog on the topic is here:

  • A tax to get a license to watch a tv channel that is paid for by your taxes. Wow.

  • CanadianBeauty

    In France it’s the same thing. We pay a housing tax and half of it goes to the national TV board. Before the tax was a part, now it’s just added to your housing tax, because 99.99% of Frenchmen have a TV.

    V for Vendetta WAS a graphic novel, no? I mean it WASN’T supposed to be a manual for how UK govt, was going to manipulate and guide their increasing infringements and invasive actions against their citizens was it? Seriously, this latest hate speech laws are scaring the poops outta me, and I live in the US; and I suspect that these sorts of horrors will float back here soon.

    I had to go to the license office last week to renew the plates for one of our vehicles. On the counter, next to an American flag, was a big wood carving of the word “Freedom.” An office that takes our money and then uses it to make our lives worse, crowing about freedom. Hilarious.
