'Anti-government' derogatory slur utterly dismantled by the Health Ranger


(NaturalNews) The latest trendy attack on anyone who can think for themselves is to label them "anti-government." This derogatory slur, strewn around by the same people who once used the term "conspiracy theorist" to try to demean investigative journalists, is the domain of the intellectually lazy who are, themselves, ignorant of the origins, structure and history of government.

Over two centuries ago, people like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington were not merely called "anti-government" by the British; they were called traitors and treasonous criminals. And yet Jefferson and Washington were clearly pro-government because they were instrumental in establishing an entirely new government -- one based on respecting individual liberties and rights, where citizens held power over a government which existed solely to serve the interests of the citizens (and protect their rights).

Jefferson and Washington never could have imagined a day when a person exercising free speech -- the First Amendment -- would be denigrated as "anti-government" for criticizing the operations or policies of the current administration running the government. Criticism of government is not "anti-government." It is, in fact, the patriotic duty of every American citizen -- to keep government honest, to call for improvement in its operation and to eliminate it where it produces only waste instead of results.

Government is now dominated by corporate interests that often betray the People

The real structure of government today, however, has radically morphed from its origins. Although founded on serving the interests of the People, government today has become maliciously intertwined with corporate interests. Nearly every government regulatory body that was supposed to protect the public -- the FDA, FTC, CDC, etc. -- has actually become a monopolistic fiefdom whereby corporate interests are protected through market monopolies and the public suppression of knowledge (such as the medicinal value of natural herbal supplements).

So now we have a government which is essentially of the corporations, by the corporations and for the corporations. The People have been abandoned in this equation, and now those groups, websites and individuals who are paid by the corporations turn around and claim anyone who doesn't like the corporate-government fascist arrangement is suddenly "anti-government."

In truth, it is the corporate powers that violate the People-centric principles of our government and are therefore opposed to civil rights, human rights and constitutional rights. Corporations, you may recall, incessantly seek to poison all the People with pesticides, herbicides and GMOs. They seek to dominate the medical system and suppress natural cures. They monopolize banking and finance, invoking their own trillion-dollar bailouts while draining the economic productivity of the working class.

These corporate interests use the power of government to betray the People at every opportunity through a multitude of heinous methods such as conducting medical experiments on minorities using government funds, denying Americans their right to due process for children damaged by vaccines, actively seeking to block honest labeling of GMOs on food products, and lobbying government regulators to legalize toxic chemical pesticides sprayed near children's schools.

"Experience hath shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny." - Thomas Jefferson

Most who are labeled "anti-government" are actually "pro People" humanitarians

To courageously speak out against these violations of human rights is not "anti-government" but rather "pro People." Almost everyone who is currently being branded "anti-government" is, in fact, a champion of human rights, human dignity and human freedom. To believe in the decentralization of power so that individuals and communities have the ability to seek out their own destinies is not anti-government; it is wholly in support of the very fabric of decentralized government upon which the United States of America was founded.

Those who fail to understand this -- or who refuse to -- are technically "anti-history." They have no grasp on the historical underpinning of our nation, nor the cycle of government abuse of individual rights which has so often led to revolt and revolution throughout world history. Ignorance of history is very common today, of course, and in much the same way that pathetic racists who blurt out slurs like "n***er!" are ignorant fools, those who blurt out "anti-government!" are similarly foolish and ignorant.

Ironically, the only reason those people even have the right to utter such statements is because large numbers of revolutionaries who might today be called "anti-government" fought for universal human rights and established a structure of government founded in the protecting of individual liberties. America was not founded as a collective of sheeple run by a dictator. It is a nation where the very purpose of government is to protect and defend the individual liberties of its citizens -- citizens from whom the very power of government sprang in the first place.

Those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it

I feel very saddened that there are people in America today who remain utterly ignorant of American history, the structure of government and the sacred nature of individual human rights. You can spot these people easily by noticing who throws around the phrase "anti-government" as an intellectual slur.

The government of America was founded on the idea of individual liberty. This is why we have the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, the Fourth, Fifth and even the Tenth amendments. Because individual liberty -- not collectivism -- is the founding principle of the United States government, those who are anti-liberty are, by definition, anti-government.

Those who support individual liberty and a nation of laws to protect those liberties are also, by definition, "pro government." In this context, I count myself as among the "pro government" forces. I believe in the balance of power across the judicial, legislative and executive branches. I believe in due process, and I believe in the human rights detailed in the Bill of Rights.

I also happen to believe that today's federal government is far too large, too corrupt, too wasteful, too arrogant and poses too much of a danger to the liberties of the American people. This recognition that a bloated, over-spending government is out of balance with the intended structure of government for America is not an "anti-government" viewpoint; it is a "balanced government" view. For government to be sustainable, transparent and useful to the People, it must stay within the bounds which were carefully defined for it by our Founding Fathers. But when governments exceed those boundaries and begin the long, dangerous march down the path of aggregating power in the hands of the few, nullifying representatives in Congress and spending far more money than the People can possibly repay, then that government has become wildly imbalanced and urgent reforms must be pursued in order to recalibrate government.

Blind obedience to government is a grave threat to human safety and liberty

As history has repeatedly shown, blind obedience to government is a far greater threat to the lives and safety of the public than is terrorism.

Over the 20th century, governments gone bad have resulted in the deaths of over 260 million people. Every one of those deaths was carried out by someone who was blindly obedient to the orders of their own government. As they carried out the mass murders, bombings and genocide, every one of them told themselves, "I'm just following orders."

See the chart yourself, and read the scientific research at this link:

"I'm just following (government) orders"

That statement is the refuge of the shamelessly weak-minded. To blind go along with anything the government tells you to do is history's greatest example of dangerous thinking -- and it must be fiercely rejected.

"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty." - Thomas Jefferson

In a free society where representative government is the goal, every citizen must exercise constant vigilance in critically reviewing the government's actions, laws and edicts. When citizens abandon this sacred responsibility and simply let government eat away at their rights and freedoms, the result can never be in question: dictatorial tyranny engineered by those in power and enforced by the mindless masses of "do gooders" who go along with anything the government tells them to do.

Throughout world history, those government-sanctioned actions have included the mass burning of books, the mass murder of academics, the rounding up and extermination of ethnic minorities, the exploitation of children for heinous medical experiments and even the dropping of atomic weapons on civilian cities where the goal was to produce the maximum civilian carnage.

In every one of these cases, any voice of sanity and reason which might have said, "Hey, maybe this policy of murder and genocide is a BAD idea" would have been immediately branded "anti-government" by the mindless, obedient social enforcers whose job is to cast humanitarians as thought criminals.

When you see those weak-minded people flinging the "anti-government" slur across the internet, immediately recognize that you are witnessing the human echoes of Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Adolf Hitler and every other tyrant who exploited the gullibility of weak minds to commit genocide for their own personal gain.

All of us who care deeply for humanitarian freedoms and liberty must immediately cast shame upon those who invoke these haunting mistakes throughout human history where the weak-minded masses went along with the horrific ideas of bad government. When people fail to speak out against horrific mistakes of government, they allow those mistakes to spread and harm others. And while it takes real courage to stand up and speak out against something that's terribly wrong with your own government, it takes no courage or thought whatsoever to go along with the fairytale delusion that government can do no wrong.

That delusion has been in full force in the United States of America ever since President Obama took office, after which all government actions were immediately considered beyond reproach -- regardless of their degree of lawfulness -- merely because Obama himself was a high-charisma individual. And yet, as all truly intelligent people have now come to realize, under President Obama the United States government has spent more debt dollars, surveiled more innocent citizens, run more secret prisons, launched more drone missile attacks and eroded more personal liberties than during any administration in U.S. history. Regardless of who occupies the White House from 2016 forward, it is the absolute duty of every American to root out the illegal activities of this administration -- starting with Eric Holder, no doubt -- and demand future government be more transparent, more efficient, more respectful of the Constitution and above all significantly smaller and less expensive to operate.

That isn't an "anti-government" point of view. It is, in fact, the most responsible, humanitarian, democratic and People-centric view of government you'll ever witness. It is what makes us uniquely American, in fact. Those who do not grasp the essence of liberty and the role of small government to protect those liberties are, technically, "anti-American."

"The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government." - Thomas Jefferson
