Are We Becoming A Nation Of Zombies?

The government is setting up a bunch of unelected Czars to tell us what to do in our daily lives. They rule supreme in matters of what’s good for our health: What not to eat, drink or smoke, How much we should weigh, How not to take risks in the stock market, What medical treatment we should get or not get depending on your age, How much money we can or can’t make in salary, What kind of carbon emissions we are going to be responsible for, What social behavior is acceptable and what is not. And the list goes on and on in a never-ending expansion of a curb on our liberties and the very freedom our forefathers fought for. Are we being made into a nation of zombies? Has the decision been made by the administration and the congress that we are like a bunch of children and not capable of making our own decisions? Is this the kind of change that we wanted? Are we going to just drift through life without feeling any pain or pleasure – without thinking for ourselves?

In attempting to decide whether this major change in the way we live our lives, the control we have over our actions and how much freedom of choice we are going to be left with, ask yourself these questions and decide for yourself if you are comfortable with the answers you come up with:

What is happening to our spirit America? Are we sacrificing it for a cheap handout, the promise of a living without working for it, or free health benefits and insurance? What about the quality of Care? What about the quality of our lives? What about our right to choose our own destiny? What about our proud history of leading the world in innovation and new medical cures, and new technological invention? What happened to all those things that made America and Americans great and that we don’t have to apologize for? What happened to hope for a bright future for us and our children and grandchildren? Is it all vanishing in a remake of our civilization, a redistribution of wealth, and the creation of an unbearable debt load? What is happening to our democracy?

Is the capitalist system that made us and our citizens the richest nation on the earth being shelved in favor of a socialist type system that has proven itself time after time in other nations not to work well? Is this major change something that we knowingly voted for or were we duped by false promises? Who is leading this move away from freedom and individual choice? Who voted for this to happen? Is a silent, behind our backs, revolution taking place that will take away our rights, and give us rationing of basic health benefits and long lines and waiting periods – more bureaucracy and less efficiency?

Ask yourself these questions and when you do ask yourself if this is what you want. Do you want to be told what to do in every aspect of your life? Do you want to lose your freedom of choice? Do you want to give away your children and grandchildren’s rights in return for a health subsidy? Do you want to be told what to do? Do you want to lose your freedom in exchange for a handout? Do you want the government looking over your shoulder and telling you how to act?

Is this Big Brother reincarnate? Do you want to be told what you can and cannot do in almost every aspect of your life? Are you willing to allow the government and their czars to modify your social behavior? Are you ready for the government to know all your private health conditions through electronic medical records? Are you prepared for the possibility of the government mandating an identity chip embedded in your arm so they can track where you are and what you are doing at all times? How much of your individuality are you prepared to sacrifice? What are you going to do about this? Are you willing to become a zombie, or will you stand up and vote no to an administration and congress that can take away your freedom?

Ask yourself if these questions are just the machinations of some disgruntled individuals who want to maintain the status quo or are they real questions about an impending life changing movement away from capitalism and towards socialism in our society.

Ask yourself if this new reality is something you can live with?

New World Reality Check

Do you feel like you’ve been here and heard this before? Do your dreams seem real? Do you imagine all kinds of crazy things happening?

How do you know you are not living in different realities simultaneously?

Maybe you are living in parallel new worlds taking different paths and reaching different conclusions, all at the same time.

Is it possible that when life comes to an end in one reality, it continues in a different one?

If different realities do exist, is this the Heaven we search for, or just another dimension to our selves?

Do you feel like you are imagining what is happening to you?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions it may be time for a reality check:

1. Do you make your own choices in life or do you feel like someone is pulling your strings, as if you were a puppet, and telling you what to do?
2. Do you feel like you are in control of your life or are circumstances dictating what you do and how you act?
3. Would you rather day dream than deal with the problems of everyday life?
4. Do you have a relationship with your God that is an unbreakable bond of faith?
5. Does your imagination run wild or are you too inhibited to actually imagine novel new thoughts or worlds or realities?
6. Is a master game master creating virtual worlds and populating them with people like you and I?
7. Is quantum computing technology being used to create and populate these different worlds?

If you answered yes to number 4 about having a relationship with God, you can trust that your life is real and that you are a real person. Whether or not we live in different worlds or realities at the same time is beyond our comprehension and having yes or no answers to some questions won’t automatically determine how real we are.

Sometimes we just have to believe in what we cannot see or understand.

Sometimes we have to have faith that what we do and who we are is as real as it gets, and that it counts, and that you count.

Sometimes we just have to have faith in God.

Your answers may be different than mine, but most of the time our questions will be the same. We all want to know what the meaning of life is and if we are real? Do we have choices? Can we make a difference? Is there more than one world that is inhabited by our souls at the same time? Does eternity exist? Are we good people? Will we get to Heaven?

And the reality is that the questions go on and on.
