In the following video, George Carlin correctly assessed the problems with the world’s political and economic systems. That is, governments, big banks and corporations have colluded, and a group of elites runs the entire show because they control the major centers of power.
I don’t subscribe to Carlin’s defeatism, however. Instead, I challenge you to take actions that undermine the elites’ power structure and that assert your sovereignty as an individual.
Here are a few ideas:
Turn off the TV, cancel your cable subscription, and don’t believe anything the government says. Support alternative media.
“Adopt” a world leader and pray for him or her every day.
Use only a local bank or credit union, or follow Daisy Luther’s advice for unbanking and underbanking.
Homeschool your kids and teach them to be critical thinkers.
Build up your local community: Pick up trash, host a block party, volunteer at a soup kitchen, take a bag of food to a food bank.
Read America’s founding documents and books about the Founding Fathers. Read and discuss history books with your children.
Have your kids invite friends over to watch “Liberty’s Kids” DVDs. Host neighborhood viewings of documentaries about current events or history.
Read Susan Wise Bauer’s The Well-Educated Mind: A Guide to the Classical Education You Never Had, and start reading the classics of western civilization.
Take history and economics courses at Tom Woods’ Liberty Classroom.
Run for local office, or join a government watchdog group.
Find ways to promote truth, beauty and goodness in your little corner of the world.
