(NaturalNews) Commenting on other people's articles is easy. Sharing them on social networking is easy. Signing an online petition is easy, and so is forwarding an email. But this Independence Day, I'm asking all the millions of Natural News fans and readers to ask yourself this question: What are YOU doing for freedom this year?
And by that question, I mean what are you doing for freedom in the real world.
The online world is one thing, and it's a powerful thing, but it's not where the rubber meets the road. Right now is the time for all of us -- myself included -- to get off our butts and join real-world action in the name of freedom.
Find a cause for freedom and join it (or spark it!)
It doesn't matter where you fall on the political spectrum. I've found that We the People have a wide range of things we have in common, regardless of who we voted for in the last election. Everybody wants to have honest labels on food. Everybody wants to be safe from toxic pesticides, herbicides and agricultural poisons. Everybody wants the opportunity for economic prosperity in a fair and just system where hard work and innovation is rewarded. Everybody is tired of the lies and oppression of corrupt politicians, evil corporations and the lying news media. We are UNITED in these truths!
Right now, the world is waking up to revolution. Awareness, truth and liberty is spreading globally. People who are fed up with being oppressed by government incompetence and criminality are finally taking matters into their own hands to call for justice, human dignity and human rights.
It's time for real American citizens to band together, march into Mexico with determination, and free our fellow citizen from prison there. Bring him home and celebrate our compassion for our fellow brothers and sisters who have suffered enough.
Human freedom is on the verge of being forever lost if not demanded now
In our nation right now, there are powerful institutions actively fighting to keep us all enslaved. Those include the government itself, the mainstream media and of course certain powerful corporations that profit from domination and monopolistic practices. It is this suffocating scourge of oppression and enslavement that has denied generations of Americans their rightful heritage of abundance, prosperity, health and happiness.
Today, many of our cities stand on the verge of collapse. In Detroit, nearly half the citizens cannot afford running water. (1) In New York, 1 in 6 families faces starvation. (2) The collapse of America into third-world conditions is happening so rapidly and unexpectedly that the United Nations may soon be called in to "rescue" city-dwellers. (3) Since 2001, America has suffered a loss of 56,000 manufacturing facilities (4), and southern towns are now being literally overrun by such a huge wave of undocumented immigrants that the Department of Homeland Security has declared a Level Four Alert. (5)
Similarly, California is experiencing a mass exodus as the burden of failed government policies and outrageous taxation drives families and businesses into bankruptcy. Illinois and Michigan have become bureaucratic nightmares of corruption and executive brutality against the citizens, and the mass militarization of local police is turning America's streets into literal war zones, where no citizen is safe.
National apathy has allowed EVIL to attain positions of power
Is this the America that once declared its independence from tyranny rule? Far from it. While too many citizens slumbered in comfort and apathy, devious, dark forces slithered into positions of corporate, government and media power. They now own the nation and run the theater... and upon the world stage they have created, they play out fables called "The News" or a "White House press conference."
But the fictions they have desperately woven are rapidly unraveling. The comatose masses are beginning to awaken in unprecedented numbers. Awareness, consciousness and courage are taking form, rising from the hearts and souls of our fellow brothers and sisters, all of whom desire the same things we do: happiness, prosperity, health, longevity and abundance. And along with those core desires, we now understand that they can only be protected when we also demand government accountability, human rights, personal liberty and privacy, personal responsibility and respect for a system of laws under which ALL men and women must operate.
This is why I wrote the song, "Revolution of the Heart." We need a global revolution, but it must be a revolution grounded in a conscious awakening, a love of life, and the steadfast courage to demand truth, justice and liberty even in the face of tremendous evil.
The call for global freedom is becoming urgent
This Independence Day, I urge you to find your passion for freedom and pursue it with a sense of urgency. The window of opportunity during which we can make a difference in the direction of our nation is fast closing. History is being written (and sometimes fabricated) with each ticking second of the national debt clock. Each of us is growing older at the same rate, at the same time, and this physical life is finite for us all.
What will YOU do with the minutes you have remaining? How will you express that deep spiritual truth that calls out inside you and which has the name FREEDOM?
If you're hungry for freedom, I encourage you to challenge yourself to remain open to new ideas. Explore a new buffet of ideas for your brain, and enjoy the stimulation that naturally comes from tasting new ideas and philosophical concepts.
Here are some extremely valuable online resources where you can really flex your brain and expand your knowledge of FREEDOM as it's happening right now, across our world, as history unfolds before our eyes:
