The Virtue of Selfishness by Ayn Rand
“When you consider socialism, do not fool yourself about its nature. Remember that there is no such dichotomy as “human rights” versus “property rights”. No human rights can exist without property rights, Since material goods are produced by the mind and effort of individual men, and are needed to sustain their lives, if the producer does not own the result of his effort, he does not own his life. To deny property rights means to turn men into property owned by the state. However claims the “right” to “redistribute the wealth produced by others is claiming “right” to treat human beings as chattel.”
Do not be fooled that there is an alternative to this “socialist” type of governance because there is not. There may appear to be alternative colours in politics, let me assure you it is but a single colour run hidden under the guise of the word government
I was never one that liked organised religion, I still don’t like it or agree with it, however, I have always appreciated that the bible contains a lot of wise words, can be a good moral guide and is of a spiritual nature, depending entirely on how the mind interprets it. Organised religion portrays the passages in a manner that is far too literal to be truth and sets itself up more along the lines of an idol to be worshiped, with those that make a career out of speaking the words turning the words in to things that are oppressive, judgemental, manipulative and to be feared and rather than revealing the secrets held within it have kept them hidden by both ignorance and deliberate design.
Below are a few passages with some new light put upon them for you to relate to in relation to the passage from Ayn Rands book.
Revelation Chapter 13
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Sounds very much like the state/Crown, this socialism, that Ayn speaks of doesn’t it?
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
“Or in their foreheads” – what resides in the forehead? could it be the conscious mind?
what might a man/woman hold in their right hand in order to make “a mark”? could it be a pencil? carbon 666?
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.
The lead in your pencil carbon 666 and you the carbon based life form.
Revelation 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive [his] mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
(replace the word God with the word Truth in your mind then have a think about how your “indignation” might fare in the light of truth, might it be just a tad embarrassing to realise you fell for such a simple deception, then again you might fail to see it and just fight to the physical death in the belief that you are a name and you own it)
:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his NAME.
Does the “system” ever let you rest? never! your mind is continuously chattering from wake to sleep about the physical ramifications of involvement with all things law and money except perhaps when you are doing something that you like that takes all your conscious focus all connected to your name.
if you believe you are a name and you sign it you have been fucked in the head and you are being fucked in the physical as well by your own consent since you are putting yourself in dishonour claiming to be a Crown owned copyright name thus in default, placing yourself, body and mind under the jurisdiction of Crown corporate Laws in the physical and putting your signature to it, in the spiritual you are believing/worshipping the laws of man not the law of God/Creation since spirit and soul reside with the mind you are spirit and soul fucked as well.
Best you get busy and sort that mind or yours out eh? or not, your choice, as it has always been, your responsibility to save yourself, no one outside of you can live inside of you to save it for you, save yourself save your world.
Only you can be that saviour you are waiting for all it takes for you to save yourself and the world is for you to change your mind about what you find acceptable to believe and then act accordingly in the things you are willing to participate in and support in your world.
