You've all heard of Stockholm Syndrome, right, where traumatised kidnap victims start to sympathise with their captors no matter how brutal or alien?
Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes "strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other." [source: WIKIPEDIA]
That's what we all share, myself included - TRAUMATIC BONDING, from birth that leads to strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.
"But we haven't been kidnapped. We're not all being held hostage, Mike!" you scream your denial at the computer screen at your clever little touch screen like all the consumer-deafened world.
"Oh, yes, you have been kidnapped; you are being held hostage," comes the calm response. Yes, you are suffering under the reality of mass-delusional Stockholm Syndrome.
You are all (all of you) sympathisers with your heartless corporate captors. What are jobs? What are cars? What are mortgages? What are dues to pay? What are loans? What is rent, and rates, and taxes but Gods to bow down to, Deities to worship and stand.under? What are birth certificates and private ownership and legal passports but tattooed arms around your throat, choking the life from you day by day? What are all these 'societal inventions' if not MECHANISMS FOR YOUR TOTAL COMPLIANCE to the whim of your ruthless captors, the global conglomerate money makers?
And you love it ... or at least you seem to. Let's say you've 'grown to live with it', within its laid-down arbitrary strictures, docile; like lambs to the slaughter. Forget vendetta, forget revenge, forget 'getting even'. You certainly don't need to engage in Civil War to change the way your world works.
You only have to think. You have to renounce all that society demands of you; let loose your Consumerist education; your need to BUY. Your slavery to the dollar, the yen, the yuan, the drachma, the euro, the rupee, the unit of gold/silver that ruins the act of living.
You all know the difference between right and wrong - you all know what to do.
You only have to DO RIGHT BY FREE PLANET and it's all yours, for everyone to share - right now, TODAY. But you're suffering from the empathy with captors thing, called Stockholm Syndrome. You're weak, you've been trained like a dog; you are their bitch. You'll never claim REAL OWNERSHIP of PLANET EARTH for your children's children, it's something you can't even comprehend. You'll never admit that you're in a precarious situation at the hands of your GAME PLAYING captors. You believe, no you're certain, that they won't kill you all if it means THEY WIN.
You will NEVER 'do right by free planet' because you're already enslaved to the ipod, the wifi, the TV, the radio, the landlords, the bosses, the priests, the politicians, the middlemanagers, the psychiatrists, the emperors, the ego-maniacal military RULERS OF THE WORLD; you believe what they're doing to be right and free. You believe you are free, truly free, to do what you are told, to watch what you are told, to buy what you are told: any lie. Any half-truth, in the name of fake-salvation; in the name of your God, CORPORATE PROFIT.
Your children's children won't see it either; unless....
