Breaking Big Brother
Strategies for Regaining Independence, Freedom, and Privacy

When I was a kid, it was common to see a big decal on the
windows of many offices and stores in the downtown area with the letters
"BBB" on it. The letters stood for the "Better Business Bureau"
and membership with that organization was suppose to be an assurance that
the management of that store or company was interested in maintaining an
ethical posture with the public. If a customer was mistreated in some fashion
by a shoddy businessman or a clerk, you could always pick up the phone (or
your pen) and log a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. Over the
phone, you were told that your complaint would be properly addressed and
that the owners of that company would be duly appraised of the foul deed
and steps taken to assure that it wouldn't happen again. It was the norm
in those days for customers to remind an abusive, surly, or non-cooperative
clerk that they were prepared to make a complaint with the Better Business
Bureau if their concerns was not met, and more often than not, it did seem
to have the desired effect-at least with the clerk .
Of course, we were young and naive then. We thought that all
was right with the world and that people meant what they said and said what
they meant. Later on, we were to learn that the "BBB" was essentially
a public relations gambit set up by local businessmen for the protection
and welfare of their members and they were never really an advocate for
customer's interests. The true purpose of the organization was to act as
a shock absorber- absorbing the offended customer's anger and frustration
and thus allowing it to dissipate into non-action. Without such a buffer
in place, more than a few abused customers may have taken their grievance
into a courtroom and settled there with monetary damages being awarded-and
we couldn't have that now could we? Or perhaps, those irritated
customers may have organized into their own customer rights advocacy
groups and offered some real assertive action to the bon mots of the BBB.
And we certainly couldn't have that either! So, for many decades,
the BBB sham was played out in small and large towns across America, with
most folks none the wiser.
Eventually, the BBB was pushed off to the side by the emergence
of government consumer protection agencies, but , unfortunately, those agencies
too have largely devolved into a self serving gambit and sham of their own
making, but on a more sophisticated level. The reality is that most ordinary
Americans today are up against a powerful amalgamation of big business and
big government in their everyday lives which strips them of every last shred
of privacy and self determination. This is the Age of Big Brother and we
are now being herded, month by month, into ever tighter constraints of conduct.
You are a number (or more accurately a group of numbers) with this octopus
and you better be prepared to fess up you numbers or you aren't getting
anything and you aren't going anywhere.
For instance, it is nearly impossible today to walk into a
dentist or a doctor's office in America, get treatment, pay for it, and
walk out. Unless you are prepared to reveal 1) your name, home address,
telephone number, 2) your employer's name, address and telephone number,
3) your social security number, 4) your date of birth, 5) a photo ID (from
government, military, or school)-which the assistant will insist on making
a photocopy of, and 6) your complete medical history, you aren't going to
be served. Even if you have a paid medical or dental insurance plan and
present your insurance card, you will still be refused service
unless you supply numbers 1-6 when you first visit that dental or medical
office. Today, you will also be given a a multi page 'fact' sheet in most
dental/medical offices which is often titled with words like "privacy
rights" and you'll have to sign yet another form affirming that you
were given, you have read, and you understood the information provided in
the "privacy rights" form. The "privacy rights" fact
sheet will inform that you no longer have any privacy rights and that the
office will give away your medical records and 'personal' information to
any law enforcement agency (local, state or federal), any governmental body
(local, state or federal), or any other 'authorized' entities, who ask for
it! Questions? No? Very good. "Have a seat and the doctor will call
you when he's ready" she says with a cherry smile.
This same sort of coercion takes place with parents when it
comes to school-required vaccinations, obtaining social security cards for
infants in order to claim them for an exemption on your income tax, etc.
You get the idea. You are treated like an indentured slave by a corporate
feudal system, but because you are free to drive about in your car (assuming
you have your state-granted "privilege" to drive, your driver's
licence, your sstate registration, and your state-required insurance), you are made to think you
are free, but you are not free. You are in bondage; you just can't see the
chains. I just heard on the radio yesterday, that the Supreme Court voted
5-4 in favor of a law that says it is now a crime in America if you refuse
to identify yourself to a policeman. You can now be arrested, indicted,
and jailed for the 'crime' of remaining silent. Questions? No? Very good.
It's a waste of time appealing to the same political forces who were
responsible for bringing these restrictions into our lives, for relief.
The same goes for big business coercion. This is why I don't bother signing
petitions or similar outdated, ineffective methods for bringing about change.
The way you control political corruption is to throw the bums out of office,
which can be problematic today considering the fraud of electronic voting
and the fraudulence of the nine people who make up the Supreme Court, but
fortunately, big business is less problematic. The way you curb big business
abuse is to take away their business.
There is an 800 pound gorilla standing in the corner of the room
and no one is taking notice of him while we individually thrash about and
ponder what to do to end this Orwellian nightmare. It's the sheer number of disgruntled and vexed Americans who are ready to be free of these coercive
shackles that makes for a most powerful vehicle for change, but change can
only begin to seed locally and expand regionally. Attempting to organize
this effort on a national level is doomed before it begins because there
are too many reactionary forces in place to shut it down. Locally, however,
it can and will work. In fact, there are already many such independence-minded
groups living and working in small communities around the world -free of
the hassles, constrictions, and coercions of Big Brother.
One of the reasons that the Illuminati decided to assassinate John F. Kennedy
on November 22, 1963 was because he was about to issue US government silver
certificates (Update 6/23/04: someone sent me an e-mail and said that it
was to be silver notes, not certificates, issued by the US Treasury ) for
US currency and get out from under the inflatable, valueless paper promissory
notes issued by the private bank owned by the Rothchilds (and others) known
as The Federal Reserve System. To be sure, the silver certificate plan was
immediately scrapped following Kennedy's murder and no other Illuminati
stand-in puppet acting in the role of US President has dared to raise the
issue again, but the idea itself is of value and can be easily adopted on
the regional level. Anyone who has studied the Federal Reserve scheme knows
that the only 'real' value in an economy are people's labor (energy) and
property. And for thousands of years, we have also considered gold, silver,
and gems to have a relatively fixed value that cannot be easily undermined.
Federal Reserve notes, however are subject to inflation or deflation at
the will of the Illuminati overlords and have no intrinsic value. You can't
take a Federal Reserve note to the bank and redeem it for a silver or gold
coin as would be the case with a US Silver or Gold certificate. It's just
paper and its 'value' is an illusion. We can however, create our own paper
and have it represent something of 'real' value to us such as labor, property,
energy, precious metals, etc. We can't call it a 'currency' because that
would make the Big Boys mad and they already have lots of statutory 'laws'
defining who can issue currency, but we can call it 'script' and we can
trade it among ourselves if we so desire.
The purpose of this new section on my web site is to solicit ideas from
readers and offer articles and networking links to web sites that offer
real solutions to Big Brother's corporate hegemony. We need doctors and
dentists, for example, who are willing to provide their services for patients
who only want to provide their name, a mailing address, and a telephone
number where they can be reached or a message can be left for them and NOTHING
MORE in the way of personal identity or documentation. While I realize that
being paid in full for services rendered is uppermost in the minds of most
professionals, I'm convinced that cooperative and secure payment methods
can be worked out between patient groups and doctors who understand the
need to re-establish the rights of privacy and freedom for Americans that
has been taken away from us by this corporate/government octopus. Of course,
most doctors are paid by insurance companies and insurance companies are
at the heart of the problem, but new collective groups can be formed
of private citizens who wish to pool their funding resources and payment
arrangements can be made with willing physicians. I also like the idea of
allowing patients to take their records home with them (and yes, I realize
that some people will lose them or spill spaghetti sauce on them,
but we are talking about re-establishing freedoms here, including that
freedom). When the Homeland Gestapo or FBI pull one of their infamous ninja
style SWAT team raids on unarmed civilians at a doctor's office, wouldn't
it be nice if there were no patient records there to be seized?
Please let me know if there are any doctors or dentists out
there who are amenable to this idea, because I believe there is a huge number
of patients out there looking for you.
It would be delightful if the day ever came when I could start seeing
those big decals once again in the windows of stores and shops which read
"BBB", but this time it would refer to a member in good standing
with "Big Brother Breakers" or maybe "Big Brother Busters"
would be more hip. Now that would be a thrill.
