I started this blog many moons ago because I wanted to stand out against the skewed standards of my society.

I was inspired by the ego-bloated right-wing talking heads like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Neal boortz.

I don't have talent on loan from God. I am not the high priest of the church of the painful truth.

I am a sour monkey that wants to rattle the cages.

War, guerrilla philosophy, and political morality were my starting points, but I've evolved since then.

You see, for a long time, I've searched for the missing link. I analyzed what is known to better understand what is unknown (and of the unknown, there is far too much).

I realized that I can learn and not have to pay for it. I realized that for everything we know, there is always much more that is not known. I've realized that is it ALWAYS that which we don't know that obfuscates the truth from our comprehension. And I did it all without student loans.

Yesterday, I checked my worker profile on the Texas Workforce Commission website. The commission informed me that I could not ask for more than $10.20 an hour when applying for a job through the Workforce Commission.

One of the things I hate about America is all the greedy capitalists that, through their own ignorance, actually function as communists.

I mean, seriously. Texas is a strongly Republican, pro-capitalism state. So why is the state commission telling me that I am not worth more than $10.20 an hour as a future employee? Do I suddenly live in China? And why do Texas citizens that proudly proclaim their capitalist's faith continue to censor the free market and criminalize other citizens for using one of humanity's most resourceful botanical cultivars?

It doesn't make sense.

And this is the point of RATTLE THE CAGE.

THE CAGE IS AN IRRATIONAL ILLUSION that we all perpetuate against the betterment of our lifestyles.

And this is so because mainstream American social systems REQUIRE IT.

In other words, to be a normal, mainstream American, YOU must buy into the notion that paper tests can measure intelligence, that classroom boxes can somehow educate your kids, that the government has all the answers, that your life and work have a defined dollar value, that you must go into debt to get an education, and that personal freedom is secondary to national security.

Don't you get it yet? This is not America, at least, not as explicitly defined in the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution.

If you are an American, you are living a lie. At the same time, we've sent our sons and daughters, brothers and sisters off to foreign lands to die for this lie.

At this point, RATTLE THE CAGE isn't enough to wake the masses from their authoritarian enslavement.

It's time to up the ante.

I'm taking this thing into 4D. Stay tuned for THE RESTORATION OF HUMAN HERITAGE.
