The Surrender of Intellectual Liberty

Posted by Brandon | Filed under Articles

The truth, of which we can barely ascertain under fair conditions, has been obscured – the people have lost all independent thought except that which has been garnered from political pundits and those we elect to pedestals of undeserved adulation.

Methodically, like an insidious pathogen taking years to incubate, we have allowed the responsibility of self preservation to be unduly left in the hands of those whose only pervasive desire is the same: self-preservation and justification of their own existence. Though in fairness, can we not claim the same philosophy in our every waking motivations?

Absolving personal responsibility only allows for subjugation and intellectual slavery. This is apparent through every medium, from the political process to countless shallow television program we carnally indulge in; and yes, allowed – have no compunctions as to the reality of how the infectious properties of force-fed programming came to existence. It was fueled by the quite understandable notion of selfishness, naturally, but the economic laws of supply and demand can be further extrapolated to the entertainment sector, of which we, Americans and the like, determine it’s course and duration. Parallels can be drawn from the aforementioned dichotomy to the recent spread of organic products and the industry’s response to our moral sensibilities.

Taking to literal arms is the simplest of battles to win; an instinctual response to tangible dangers and made such by millions of years of evolution. Yet the most important battles, those of memes and ideology are far more pernicious in their avenues of causal influence. They, above even violence and retribution have written the course of human history.

Complacency will always lead to the rotting of liberty and personal freedoms. I will end this with one of the most important religious proselyting ever uttered:

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe simply because it has been handed down for many generations. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is written in Holy Scriptures. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of Teachers, elders or wise men. Believe only after careful observation and analysis, when you find that it agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all. Then accept it and live up to it.” – Buddha
