"To see the farm is to leave it." The Story of Your Enslavement

TRANSCRIPT: This is the story of your enslavement; how it came to be, and how you can finally be free…

Like all animals, human beings want to dominate and exploit the resources around them. At first, we mostly hunted and fished and ate off the land – but then something magical and terrible happened to our minds. We became, alone among the animals, afraid of death, and of future loss. And this was the start of a great tragedy, and an even greater possibility. You see, when we became afraid of death, of injury, and imprisonment, we became controllable – and so valuable – in a way that no other resource could ever be.

The greatest resource for any human being to control is not natural resources, or tools, or animals or land – but other human beings.

You can frighten an animal, because animals are afraid of pain in the moment, but you cannot frighten an animal with a loss of liberty, or with torture or imprisonment in the future, because animals have very little sense of tomorrow. You cannot threaten a cow with torture, or a sheep with death. You cannot swing a sword at a tree and scream at it to produce more fruit, or hold a burning torch to a field and demand more wheat. You cannot get more eggs by threatening a hen – but you can get a man to give you his eggs by threatening him.

This human farming has been the most profitable – and destructive – occupation throughout history, and it is now reaching its destructive climax.

Human society cannot be rationally understood until it is seen for what it is: a series of farms where human farmers own human livestock.

Some people get confused because governments provide healthcare and water and education and roads, and thus imagine that there is some benevolence at work. Nothing could be further from ‘The Reality’. Farmers provide healthcare and irrigation and training to their livestock.

Some people get confused because we are allowed certain liberties, and thus imagine that our governments protect our freedoms. But farmers plant their crops a certain distance apart to increase their yields – and will allow certain animals larger stalls or fields if it means they will produce more meat and milk.

In your country, your tax farm, ‘your farmer’ grants you certain freedoms not because he cares about your liberties, but because he wants to increase his profits.

Are you beginning to see the nature of the cage you were born into?

There have been four major phases of human farming. The first phase, in ancient Egypt, was direct and brutal human compulsion. Human bodies were controlled, but the creative productivity of the human mind remained beyond the reach of the whip and the brand and the shackles. Slaves remained woefully underproductive, and required enormous resources to control.

The second phase was the Roman model, wherein slaves were granted some capacity for freedom, ingenuity and creativity, which raised their productivity. This increased the wealth of Rome, and thus the tax income of the Roman government – and with this additional wealth, Rome became an empire, destroying the economic freedoms that fed its power, and collapsed.

I’m sure that this does not seem entirely unfamiliar.

After the collapse of Rome, the feudal model introduced the concept of livestock ownership and taxation. Instead of being directly owned, peasants farmed land that they could retain as long as they paid off the local warlords. This model eventually broke down due to the continual subdivision of productive land, and was destroyed during the Enclosure movement, when land was consolidated, and hundreds of thousands of peasants were kicked off their ancestral lands, because new farming techniques made larger farms more productive with fewer people.

The increased productivity of the later Middle Ages created the excess food required for the expansion of towns and cities, which in turn gave rise to the modern Democratic model of human ownership.

As displaced peasants flooded into the cities, a huge stock of cheap human capital became available to the rising industrialists – and the ruling class of human farmers quickly realized that they could make more money by letting their livestock choose their own occupations.

Under the Democratic model, direct slave ownership has been replaced by the Mafia model. The Mafia rarely owns businesses directly, but rather sends thugs around once a month to steal from the business “owners.”

You are now allowed to choose your own occupation, which raises your productivity – and thus the taxes you can pay to “your masters”.

[Billy Crystal’s Monologue – The Midlife Crunch – City Slickers]

[William Edward “Billy” Crystal (March 14, 1948)]
Value this time in your life, kids, because this is the time in your life when you still have your choices. It goes by so fast.

When you’re a teenager, you think you can do anything and you do. Your twenties are a blur.

Thirties you raise your family, you make a little money, and you think to yourself, “What happened to my twenties”‘

Forties, you grow a little pot belly, you grow another chin. The music starts to get too loud, one of your old girlfriends from high school becomes a grandmother.

Fifties, you have a minor surgery-you’ll call it a procedure, but it’s a surgery.

Sixties, you’ll have a major surgery, the music is still loud, but it doesn’t matter because you can’t hear it anyway.

Seventies, you and the wife retire to Fort Lauderdale. You start eating dinner at 2:00 in the afternoon, you have lunch around 10:00, breakfast the night before, spend most of your time wandering around malls looking for the ultimate soft yogurt and muttering, “How come the kids don’t call? How come the kids don’t call”‘

The eighties, you’ll have a major stroke, and you end up babbling with some Jamaican nurse who your wife can’t stand, but who you call mama.

Any questions?

Your few freedoms are preserved because they are profitable to your owners.

The great challenge of the Democratic model is that increases in wealth and freedom threaten the farmers. The ruling classes initially profit from a relatively free market in capital and labor, but as their livestock become more used to their freedoms and growing wealth, they begin to question why they need rulers at all.

Ah well. Nobody ever said that human farming was easy.

Keeping the tax livestock securely in the compounds of the ruling classes is a three phase process.

The first is to indoctrinate the young through government “education.” As the wealth of democratic countries grew, government schools were universally inflicted in order to control the thoughts and souls of the livestock.

The second phase is to turn citizens against each other through the creation of dependent livestock.

It is very difficult to rule human beings directly through force – and where it can be achieved, it remains cripplingly underproductive, as can be seen in North Korea.

Human beings do not breed well or produce efficiently in direct captivity.

Ah -if human beings believe that they are free, then they will produce much more for their farmers. The best way to maintain this illusion of freedom is to put some of the livestock on the payroll of the farmer. Those cows that become dependent on the existing hierarchy will then attack any other cows who point out the violence, hypocrisy and immorality of human ownership.

[Video Clip Plays: Oscar Grant III was fatally shot by BART police officer Johannes Mehserle in Oakland, California, United States]
Officers positioned Grant face first on the floor with one officer near his head and a second near his back and the third officer standing nearby, there appeared to be a brief struggle then a two year veteran barred officer stands, draws his weapon and fires.

Freedom is slavery, and slavery is freedom.

If you can get the cows to attack each other, whenever anybody brings up the reality of their situation, then you don’t have to spend nearly as much controlling them directly. Those cows who become dependent upon the stolen largess of the farmer will violently oppose any questioning of the virtue of human ownership – and the intellectual and artistic classes, always and forever dependent upon the farmers – will say, to anyone who demands freedom from ownership: “You will harm your fellow cows.”

The livestock are thus, kept enclosed by shifting the moral responsibility for the destructiveness of a violent system to those who demand real freedom.

The third phase is to invent continual external threats, so that the frightened livestock cling to the “protection” of the farmers.

This system of human farming is now nearing its end.

The terrible tragedies of modern Western economic systems has occurred not in spite of, but because of past economic freedoms.

The massive increases in American wealth throughout the 19th century resulted from economic freedoms – and it was this very increase in wealth that fed the size and power of the state.

Whenever the livestock become exponentially more productive, you get a corresponding increase in the number of farmers and their dependents.

The growth of the state is always proportional to the preceding economic freedoms. Economic freedoms create wealth, and the wealth attracts more thieves and political parasites, whose greed then destroys the economic freedoms.

In other words, freedom metastasizes the cancer of the state. The government that starts off the smallest will always end up the largest.

This is why there can be no viable and sustainable alternative to a truly free and peaceful society. A society without political rulers, without human ownership, without the violence of taxation and statism.

To be truly free is both very easy, and very hard. We avoid the horror of our enslavement because it is painful to see it directly. We dance around the endless violence of our dying system because we fear the attacks of our fellow livestock.

But we can only be kept in the cages we refuse to see.

Wake up

To see the farm is to leave it.

They left out the most ingenious of devices ever invented for instilling fear and ensuring profit:


The most massive scam ever discovered by the mind of Satan - "If you give us money, we'll let you feel you've cheated the future. Won't that be grand?" It's like a lottery, wherein the only way you can win is if you lose. Big. A catastrophic illness? You'll get some of your money back. A fatal accident? Somebody else will get some of your money back.

If your house burns down, YOU WIN! Otherwise, we do, in perpetuity or until you wise up and cancel the policy. But if you do that, you'll have to worry about mortality again. And just to make you feel better, remember it's for your own good, because......The Government is making it mandatory.

Don't you feel safer now? Give us your money.

What it really leaves out is the corruption in the hearts of all whether "farmer" or "cow". It is a very interesting presentation but it almost sounds like communist propaganda as it certainly is an appeal to a struggle between classes.

There is a lot of truth in the presentation, but it reminded me of those feminists who claim that marriage enslaves women because they subjugate their wills to their husbands and children and families. The joy which comes from a loving bond (husband-wife, parent-child, neighbor-neighbor, even labor-management is possible!) seems lost on this presenter. Every bond in society entails some loss of individual freedom. The simple solution to the problem is love. In the absence of love, coercion and control are the default setting. And of course, none of us really know how to love.

You forgot about common goals and interests, empathy, concern.

Love alone is never enough.

Respond to kindness with kindness and to aggression with justice, so sez Confucious.
To enforce justice we must organize as necessary.
The means do not justify the ends; every means must be justified as necessary. If the ends are not justified, change your ends until they are.
Is what's necessary too complicated?, then crawl back into the womb and await your abortion.

"You forgot about common goals and interests, empathy, concern.
Love alone is never enough."

Common goals and interests are breeding grounds for love, aren't they? Not the only ones, of course, but for most of us that's where it starts. Empathy and concern are some expressions of love, right?

Yes, love; God's love, agape love is always enough. But none of us really know how to love. Our hope is that we can be taught. That involves dying ourselves and most of us don't want to go there. Whether we're "farmers" or "cows" we'd rather kill.
