FROM OUR READERS

TIME FOR VANS AND LOUD SPEAKERS IN THE STREETS?
Hello Mr. Griffin.
Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I am proud to be a Freedom Force member, and have enjoyed reading, signing, and sharing "The Creed of Freedom" with friends and family.

Encouraging is Freedom Force and the efforts I see, but very real and scary is our Nation's situation for both our families and friends. If what I think is really happening, I feel the alert mode needs to be moved up. However, maybe I need to be reigned in a bit. Have I lost my mind in the maze of conspiracy literature and facts that seem to clearly point to events that will trigger the calling of marshal-law very soon?

Based on my research, the plan to usurp America is real. In my book 'A Crisis in America' I pose the question: "What if we had a terrorist attack but many times worse than 911 today?" Wouldn't America, especially with our fragile economy be in big trouble; and we can be sure a nuclear blast of any kind will have FEMA at our front doors.

If something like this did happen right out of the blue, like 911, most of us are not prepared, it would be devastating to say the least; triggering the start of The New World Order. Prepare your families my good citizens, I worry sincerely for you and your wives and children, Think of how to protect them. Tomorrow morning we could all wake up to this scenario.

Are we not all one gas tank away from being stranded? Think for a minute if all the gas pumps were turned off right now. How much gas do you have and where will you get your next tank? How will you get around, and where will you go? I say this because it happened to me the other day. I pulled in to a station and the computer was shut down. It was certainly a rude awakening of how dependent we are on our government and state.

I see us putting out this critical information about the plan to doom our
beloved nation to a fascist state or worse, but I do not sense the same
urgency in many of the voices and action of people around the planet or even in Freedom Force to meet the damnation they have planned for us. Can someone kindly please clear things up for me? Shouldn't we be driving vans up and down streets with huge blow horns screaming the 'reds are coming' or something, while handing out materials to educate people?
Stephen

GEG replies:

Hello Stephen.
I agree with your assessment of the pending crisis and I certainly sympathize with your anxiety over the fact that few of our friends are willing to face up to the reality of it. Yet, I am not convinced that driving vans around town with loudspeakers proclaiming the truth would make much difference. In fact, it could make matters worse, because most people would think we were a bunch of loonies. The problem is that the general population cannot accept the truth even when spoken iover loudspeakers, because it runs counter to their daily programming through the mass media.

Does that mean we must just sit idly by and wait for Armageddon? Not at all. There is much that can be done in spite of the media blockade. In my view, the most effective way to awaken our fellow citizens is through a non-emotional, well-documented educational program presented in a tasteful and professional manner. Bull horns and photocopied handbills with every other word highlighted and underlined is NOT the way to win converts. Thoughtful people (and many not so thoughtful) are repelled by that, and the fact that truth might be delivered therein makes no difference. Our job is not so much to deliver truth as it is to convince people that what we deliver IS truth. The method is just as important as the message.

That is why we at the Reality Zone work hard to make sure our books, CDs and DVDs are in good taste and professionally presented. That is why we don't send out warnings in response to every rumor of immediate crisis. That is why we question every story that seemingly supports our position but lacks a reliable source. That is why we refuse to exaggerate our facts and make sure that everything we say can be documented from the public record. If we wish people to accept us as reliable, then we must BE reliable.

If you are looking for a good way to break the media barrier, I urge you to participate in Project Red Pill, a program that enables us to deliver hundreds of thousands of DVDs on important topics to friends, neighbors, and even total strangers. We are just now launching this project, and we need volunteers to serve as Red Pill Team Captains. To learn more about this program, click here.

COUPLE TO RUN FOR OFFICE IN NEW JERSEY
We live in Northern New Jersey, a stronghold of public corruption. I was feeling so low one evening, feeling the effects of the wrong-doing inflicted upon my community and city. I was listening to Christian radio and Mr. Griffin was being interviewed. He said: Why fight City Hall when you can BE City Hall. It was like wind in my sail. My husband and I are preparing to run for public office. All of the details have not been worked out; however, we are encouraged and don't feel as hopeless, believing we can help to make a difference. The website has been very helpful in building our awareness, a vital tool for empowerment.
Sincerely,
Yvonne

HOW TO VIEW THE PROPAGANDA FILM,
"WAKE UP AMERICA, THE THREAT IS REAL"
A good friend recently sent us a link to a video entitled Wake Up America; The Threat Is Real, which presents powerful images of an atomic attack against the United States by Islamic terrorists. The theme is familiar to anyone who has listened to those who pound the drums for war in the Middle East: Muslims hate America because it is free. Muslims are determined to conquer the world and convert mankind to Islam by the sword. Muslims are swarming into every corner of the globe. Muslims will not stop until they destroy America with atomic bombs and other weapons of mass destruction. Therefore, wake up, America, and strike them first. Wake up, America, and support aggressive wars against any and all countries within Islam. Wake up, America, and bomb the hell out of thEM while we still have a chance. Wake up, America, and pass laws to eliminate our personal freedoms at home so we can root out those dangerous terrorists before it is too late. If you are interested, this classic propaganda video can be viewed here.

This was my brief reply: Quite effective propaganda for supporting aggressive war and surrender of liberties at home, isn’t it? Too bad it omits the part about extremist Islamic leaders being coddled, funded, and aided by CIA and other covert agencies for the purpose of creating the very scenario this film presents. As long as Americans take this stuff at face value and fail to realize the covert agenda behind it, we have no chance to survive. We will be swallowed up, not by Islam Extremism, but Neo-Con Collectivism. We lose our way of life either way.

ARE CORPORATIONS INTRINSICALLY EVIL?

There is a central issue which, in my opinion, is perhaps the single most important issue which divides those on the 'left' from those on the 'right' and needs desperately to be analyzed and addressed. This is the matter of state-granted corporate privileges.

Many on the left, who might otherwise join with us in opposition to unlawful tyranny by the state, advocate 'democracy' or 'socialism' (i.e., collectivism) because they see this as necessary to restrain or abolish 'capitalistic' abuses of power, deriving from the privileges that corporations enjoy but individuals do not: namely, limited liability.

What is your position on corporate 'limited liability' priveleges, which is the essential feature of the corporation? I am surprised that you seem not to have written about this yet. Isn't the limited liability corporation, by nature, antithetical to the ideals of individualism, which you tirelessly promote? Isn't corporatism the essential flaw of US government which has resulted in a collectivist government and political favoritism giving corporations unfair advantages over individuals and small businesses - 'competitors'?

REPLY FROM GEG: Our friends on the Left do, indeed, equate corporatism with capitalism and injustice, and they tend to think that the way to offset the injustices of corporatism is to have a strong government, theoretically responsive to the will of the people. What they fail to see is that big government is very similar to corporatism and, especially in recent times, it is obvious that there is a merger of the two. Why? because they are the same snakes under the skin. Every one of the obnoxious effects of corporatism can be found in big government, and it is most naive to think that it can ever be otherwise.

Governments and corporations are neither good nor evil by themselves. They can serve man well or be a huge disservice depending entirely on the terms of their charters and the character of those who direct them. Private entrepreneurs, partnerships, and associations have exactly the same capacity for good or evil. Corporations become evil when they acquire political favoritism giving them unfair advantages over competitors and legal immunity from crimes - but exactly the same thing happens with politically connected individuals, partnerships, and associations.

There is, however, one characteristic of corporations and governments that has led to widespread corruption and injustice. It is the fact that their officers and managers usually are protected from personal liability for their official acts. When crimes are committed by corporations and government agencies, the courts hand down judgments to compensate the victims or to punish the perpetrators, and many people cheer the outcome; but they fail to realize that the real perpetrators get off Scot free. The real perpetrators are people, not organizations. They are the leaders and managers who make the decisions and execute the criminal actions. Yet, the fines are not paid by them at all. When crimes are committed by people in government, the fines are passed on to taxpayers. When crimes are committed by people in corporations, the fines are passed on to stockholders. In both cases, the innocent are punished and the guilty are spared.

This is the root of great evil. If corporate and government officers were held personally responsible for their actions, even when discharging their official duties, most abuses would come to a halt. The problem is not that corporations and governments are intrinsically evil. It is that present laws enable people within those structures to escape liability for their actions.

It can be argued that taxpayers and stockholders should be liable for the actions of those whom they elect, that they should monitor them and make sure they perform their duties properly. Such an argument, however, is not realistic. Those who lead organizations usually can conceal or misrepresent their actions for long periods of time. Average voters and stockholders have little chance of discovering their wrongdoing until it is too late. Fortunately, in a sane world it would not be necessary for them to do so. If wrongdoing among executives were not protected by limited-liability laws, few problems would arise from that sector. In other words, if office-holders were held personally responsible for their acts on behalf of the organizations they serve, the level of corruption and crime committed by corporations and governments would be identical to the level committed by individuals acting outside corporations and governments; which is to say that it would me minimal.

In summary: Governments and corporations intrinsically are neither good nor evil. What makes them so is the character of the people who direct them. If laws did not grant personal immunity from their acts, the likelihood of corruption and crime in governments and corporations would be no greater than found in any other segment of society. We must focus on the underlying principle: To treat executives of government and corporations differently from all others is contrary to the “Equality-Under-Law” provision of The Creed of Freedom. Follow the Creed, and it will make no difference what organizational structures we choose for our convenience.

READER'S RESPONSE:
Mr. Griffin, Thank you very much for touching on the subject of corporations in that shared correspondence. As a nation, we have veered off the path set by the Founding Fathers, and pander to those in power. As Lord Acton said about corruption, one can see that rising to a powerful position, whether in politics or industry, creates the opportunity for ultimate corruption. Corporations are not, as you pointed out, intrinsically evil; we just need to hold people responsible for their actions, or lack thereof.
Respectfully,
Bill

       NEWEST ARRIVALS

ARE VACCINES SAFE?
 A 3-hour seminar that answers with a resounding NO.
This seminar was conducted by Mary Tocco, an educator on natural health with special expertise in the side effects of vaccines. Her presentation has been seen by over 100,000 people and voted by viewers across the country as #1 on this topic. She has packed 27 years of personal research into just three hours, and you will be glued to your TV screen every minute of the way. Drawing on scientific documents from government agencies and university laboratories, she identifies the toxic components of vaccines, how they are related to autism and other childhood disorders, how vaccines interfere with the development of a normal immune system, and how infectious childhood diseases had all but disappeared BEFORE vaccines were introduced as a result of improved sanitation and nutrition. Protect your children from this fraud. Get the facts before you make the vaccine decision. (More)

THE FUTURE OF FOOD:
The Disturbing Truth about Genetically Modified Foods.

This documentary is an investigation into unlabeled, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled our grocery stores for the past decade. It gives voice to farmers who are under attack by the corporations that have created this technology. It shows the grim health implications for an unsus-pecting population and reveals how multinational corporations are seeking to control the world's food system. (More)

WASHINGTON YOU'RE FIRED!
This documentary focuses on the growing police state in America and shows how the Bill of Rights and the Constitution literally have been cancelled by recent legislation and executive orders. With the next crisis, the President will have power to confiscate all private property including homes, cars, and money; all commercial property; all means of transportation; and can round us up into work brigades. Anyone who criticizes can be imprisoned without legal defense. Presidents now have more dictatorial power than King George had when Americans fought the Revolutionary War to rid themselves of him. This program includes a plan for restoring the Constitution without armed revolution. (More)

STALIN, MAN OF STEEL. This History Channel documentary is more than just a biography of one of the world’s most notorious dictators and mass killers. It shows how, in spite of incredible crimes against his own people, Stalin was hero worshiped by them. This was possible because the masses were easily moved in time of crisis into viewing him as the embodiment of their nation, and loyalty to country became blurred with loyalty to leader. Vital lessons for today. (More)

UN-COUNTED
The New Math of American Elections
This documentary shows how the elections of 2004 and 2006 were stolen and who did it. This is not a conspiracy theory. It’s the real thing! The people who perpetrated this fraud remain in place to do the same thing in 2008 – and every election thereafter. This has nothing to do with Republicans vs. Democrats. It is about controlling the electoral process so that the common citizen will never be able to break the grip of those who control both major parties. This grip CAN be broken, but only if more Americans become aware that it exists. That’s where you come in. Acquire this video and show it to your friends. (More)

STOP AMERICA'S #1 KILLER!
Vitamin C Deficiency Is the Origin of ALL Heart Disease.
Yes, sub-clinical scurvy, caused by a lack of Vitamin C, is the origin of all heart and coronary disease. Does that mean everyone can be protected simply by taking extra Vitamin C? Not quite. The first step is to eliminate those conditions that deplete Vitamin C levels in the first place. Here is the whole story told in fascinating detail. Simply stated, coronary disease is preventable and reversible without drugs. (More)

Late Great USA
This is the confession, made eight days before his death, of a man who worked in the joint service of organized crime and the CIA. Chauncey Holt tells why the Mob and the CIA wanted JFK dead and how they carried out his assassination. One of Holt’s assignments was to create false ID papers for Lee Harvey Oswald who he knew as a CIA undercover agent posing as a Castro supporter. Holt reveals that there were several shooters, but Oswald wasn’t one of them. He was set up to take the blame and draw attention away from the real assassination team. DVD. (More)

FILES ON JFK: The confession of James Files, the man who shot Kennedy.
Late Great USA
Speaking from prison, James Files tells how he was recruited by a Chicago crime family and worked with the CIA to assassinate JFK. He describes every step of the plan, names the key players, and explains their motives. The FBI claims that Files is not a credible witness; but you will be hard pressed to agree after hearing hundreds of details that only could come from intimate knowledge of the event and the players – including Jack Ruby and Lee Oswald.

THE LATE GREAT U.S.A. The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada. Late Great USAWhile many people are still clinging to the belief that The U.S.will never give up its sovereignty, the process already is far advanced. This is not just a super highway between Mexico and Canada, but a total political, economic, and military merger into what will be called the North American Union, identical to the creation of the EU. Here are the chilling details of a plan being implemented largely behind closed doors by global elitists to terminate the United States. (More)

DECEPTION WAS MY JOB
The Testimony of Yuri Bezmenov,
KGB Propagandist.
Deception Was My Job
Bezmenov, the son of a high-ranking Soviet officer, worked for the propaganda arm of the KGB known as the Novasti Press Agency. One of his assignments was to accompany journalists visiting the Soviet Union to make sure they did not discover the truth about Soviet life. After becoming disillusioned with the oppressive system, he escaped to the West at great risk to his life. In this interview, conducted by G. Edward Griffin, Bezmenov tells how the Soviets propagandized their own citizens; how he hoodwinked American journalists into publishing Soviet propaganda, how slave laborers are concealed from foreign visitors, and how he escaped to the West posing as an American hippie. Includes many photographs brought with him on microfilm at the time of his escape. (More)
