Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Tools of Freedom

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. - Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Ethan Jacobs, J.D. -- Activist Post

Introduction:
Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated April 4, 1968, shortly after he started speaking out against the global elite and the injustice they inflict on all of humanity though orchestrated wars and economic oppression.  He believed that "a nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death."[1]

While King may not physically be with us today, we are fortunate that he left us with powerful principles and tools for defeating tyranny.  King, Gandhi and many others have set the precedent for our liberation, proving that courage, love, persistence, and some simple tools are ultimately victorious.

In fact, the tools and principles utilized by King are so powerful that they rocked the foundation of the global elite’s power structure.  As Andrew Gavin Marshall writes:
When Martin Luther King began speaking about more than race, and openly criticized the entire social structure of empire and economic exploitation, not simply of blacks, but of all people around the world and at home, he posed too great a threat to the oligarchy to tolerate him any longer. It was at this point that the National Security State chose to assassinate Martin Luther King, and the philanthropies greatly expanded their financing of the Civil Rights Movement to ensure that it would be led in their desired direction.[2]  
Hatred for King by the elite’s agents in government intensified after he publicly identified the U.S. government as “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today.” The FBI and U.S military kept King under 24-hour surveillance, and agents had infiltrated the civil rights movement. Therefore, the elites were aware of King’s Poor People’s Campaign for Washington D.C., where King planned to shut down the nation’s capital in the spring of 1968 through massive civil disobedience until the government agreed to combat economic inequality in the United States rather than drop bombs on Vietnam. 


 On December 8, 1999, in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the King Family, a jury composed of six white and six black people deliberated less than three hours to find that Loyd Jowers (who confessed on television in 1999) and others “including governmental agencies,” were parties to the conspiracy to assassinate Martin Luther King, Jr.[3]   During closing argument, King family attorney William Pepper stated: “When Martin King opposed the war, when he rallied people to oppose the war, he was threatening the bottom lines of some of the largest defense contractors in this country. This was about money.  He was threatening the weapons industry, the hardware, the armaments industries, that would all lose as a result of the end of the war.”[4] 

All Americans would be well advised to review the evidence that was presented at the trial. 

Now we shall examine Martin Luther King, Jr.’s principles and tools for restoring freedom in greater detail, committing them to memory by applying them with action each day.
 
Principles to Defeat the New World Order 

Courage
In his eloquent speeches, King often quoted great philosophers.  It was Aristotle that said, “courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality that guarantees the others.”[5]   Everything we do requires a particular degree of courage, whether it be interviewing for a job, asking for a date, playing a sport, or resisting a global fascist oligarchy.  Fear prevents us reaching our potential and accomplishing what is most important.  “Cowards die many times before their deaths, the valiant never taste death but once.”[6]  Every time fear prevents us from doing what our conscience tells us we must, we suffer a spiritual defeat which, if not remedied, can lead to habitual cowardice and spiritual death.  “A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.”[7]

Agape Love 
King realized that agape love is essential to bring about positive social change.  Agape love is simply redemptive good will for all men and women.[8]  If you truly love your spouse, children, family friends, neighbors, and humanity itself, you will take action to reverse mankind’s incremental enslavement.  An important aspect is telling others the truth, even when the truth is not pleasant to hear.  Agape love also requires that you not allow yourself to hate the global elite and their agents despite their history of unspeakable crimes against humanity.  “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”[9]   Of course, agape love does not imply that the global elite should not be arrested, tried by an impartial jury, convicted, and imprisoned for their crimes. 

Perseverance
The Civil Rights Movement would not have been successful without perseverance.  Perseverance means moving steadily towards an important goal in spite of difficulties and obstacles.  Martin Luther King Jr. worked towards equality, justice and equal rights from the early 1950s until his assassination in 1968, which he foresaw.  King and other activists faced being sprayed with high-power fire hoses, police dogs, arrest, prison, beatings, court injunctions, and death threats.  The King family home was even bombed on January 30, 1956.  When he arrived home to his bombed house, King walked onto the front porch and calmed the crowd of his angry supporters:
I did not start this boycott. I was asked by you to serve as your spokesman. I want it to be known the length and breadth of this land that if I am stopped, this movement will not stop.  If I am stopped, our work will not stop.  For what we are doing is right.  What we are doing is just. And God is with us.[10]
Tools That Defeat All Forms of Tyranny 

The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace, and brotherhood. – Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Education 
King valued education and spent much of his time teaching others in the Civil Rights Movement.  As Thomas Jefferson said, “if a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”  Therefore, we must educate ourselves and others on the fact that wealthy individuals and private organizations like the Council on Foreign Relations  are primarily responsible for government policy.  Most importantly, we must escape the false left-right paradigm  (Democrat vs. Republican) which is nothing more than a divide-and-conquer strategy implemented by the global elite. 

Non-Compliance
Martin Luther King stated that, one has not only a legal, but a moral responsibility to obey just laws.  Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”[11]  Rosa Parks refused to comply with the law requiring her to give-up her seat on the bus. Sit-ins were an integral part of the non-violent strategy of civil disobedience and mass protests that eventually led to passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which ended legally-sanctioned racial segregation in the United States.

Much like past civil rights activists refused to submit to unjust and immoral laws, we must refuse to comply with laws and administrative dictates that reduce us to serfs.  We must refuse to be radiated by airport naked body scanners.  We must refuse to be groped and fondled by government agents, in violation of the 4th Amendment and natural unalienable rights, when there is no probable cause or even reasonable suspicion of criminal activity.  We must refuse to allow our na├»ve young men and women to join the military, so that the global elite cannot use them as pawns to conquer practically defenseless third-world countries to steal natural resources for profit.  We must refuse to allow three-year-old children to be strip-searched in public by mindless drones, while adult men and women stand by immobile.  We must refuse to let government forcibly medicate us into submission by fluoridating the public water supply.  We must refuse to give our kids vaccines loaded with toxic levels of mercury, aluminum, and squalene.  We must refuse to allow low-level drug offenders to be incarcerated at taxpayer expense while the government traffics narcotics.  You can think of many other things that you should not tolerate as well.   

Boycott
On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give-up her seat due to her skin color and move to the back of a public bus.  The Montgomery Bus Boycott, led by Martin Luther King, Jr. and others followed, lasting 385 days.  The boycott campaign ended with a U.S. District Court ruling in Browder v. Gayle that ended racial segregation on all Montgomery public buses.

Boycotts can be successful today as well.  We must refuse to do business with companies that donate money to ‘think-tanks,’ tax free foundations, and false charities that strategize how to take our money while enslaving us.  Furthermore, why support a bank that made huge profits making bad loans through the fractional reserve banking scam, only to later be bailed out by taxpayers?  It should be noted that by some estimates the four largest banks make up 55 percent of U.S. banking assets.

We must boycott credit cards in favor of cash because their high interest rates are usury, and using them promotes the cashless society control grid, where a record of all of your transactions is kept so that companies and the government can monitor and predict your behavior.
  Make no mistake, mortgage and credit card debt is the modern form of slavery.  Special laws have been passed to allow banks and credit card companies to charge absurdly high interest rates.

In a similar fashion, we must refuse to watch the banker/government controlled media, which have deceived the public into wars based on false pretexts, economic depressions, fabricated swine flu pandemics, false flag operations, etc.  Just six corporations control approximately 90 percent of the “mainstream” Operation Mockingbird media.  Instead, we must support and promote the alternative media, which is growing stronger each day despite the globalists censoring it.  We must also boycott toxic food and pharmaceuticals that make us sick.  And boycott companies working with Homeland Security to surveil us while we shop, creating a snitch culture of citizen spies.   

Protests and Marches 
“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps perpetrate it.  He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”[12]  King led many marches and protests on his quest for equality, most notably the Albany movement (1961), Birmingham campaign (1963), and the march on Washington (1963).  Today, organizing a peaceful march, protest, or meetup is easier than ever thanks to online meet-up groups and social networking. 

While peaceful protests and marches are effective in attracting public attention important issues, it must be noted that there are obstacles to organizing large demonstrations. First, similar to the FBI falsely labeling King as a communist and wire-tapping his phone,[13] the government may label you a “domestic extremist” and put you on a watch list.  Second, the city where you want to have the protest may violate your Fist Amendment by requiring you to obtain a permit, or telling you that you may only protest in a free speech zone Third, as King’s movement was infiltrated by people he trusted, your march or protest will be infiltrated by undercover law enforcement, modern day Judas Iscariots, or, at worse, agents provocateur and black-bloc (government sponsored) anarchists.  

Email
Unfortunately, King did not have the access to the power and efficiency of email.  On the other hand, we must utilize it each week by emailing our contacts the best articles for exposing the New World Order from the many great sites and blogs exposing the agenda.  Our future economic health, safety, and survival depends on us educating our friends and families about the Chinese-like totalitarian policies that the globalists intend to implement.  If you do not inform your friends and family, who will?

Flyers 
Every weekend each peace/truth activist should deliver at least 50 to 100 flyers to front doors in their neighborhood.  The flyers should contain the “real news” and links to trustworthy alternative news sites.  If just 10,000 people distribute 100 flyers every weekend, 49 weeks per year, we will reach 49,000,000 people each year (10,000 people x 100 flyers x 49 weeks). Distributing 100 flyers takes less than an hour and black and white copies are inexpensive.


Nullification: 
Martin Luther King, Jr. stated that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”[14]  Jury nullification occurs when a jury returns a verdict of "Not Guilty" despite its belief that the defendant is guilty of the violation charged. The jury in effect nullifies a law that it believes is either immoral or wrongly applied.[15] In the United States, jury nullification first appeared in the pre-Civil War era when juries sometimes refused to convict for violations of the Fugitive Slave Act. Later, during alcohol prohibition, juries often nullified alcohol control laws, possibly as often as 60% of the time. Should juries nullify laws pertaining to speeding, drug use, tax laws, refusing to be drafted during times of war? 

“State nullification is the idea that the states can and must refuse to enforce unconstitutional federal laws.”[16]  This power is granted to the states by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”  In short state and local governments should not assist the federal government in enforcing unconstitutional federal laws. 

Conclusion: 
“We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”[17]  We must demand our freedom now and use the tools listed above to peaceably bring it into existence.  Martin Luther King, Jr. broke silence, and the Civil Rights Movement set the precedent. Just as the globalists have spent many years implementing their plans to enslave mankind in debt and fear of war, our victory will not be gained overnight.  Each individual that desires freedom must be the change that he or she wants to see in the world.[18] Once our freedom is obtained, it must be vigilantly guarded, as the masters of deception always quickly regroup when defeated.  But rest assured, by all of us who desire true freedom, following King’s example in our local communities, the banking and corporate sowers of inequity will lose their control over humanity.  
When our days become dreary with low-hovering clouds of despair, and when our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, let us remember that there is a creative force in this universe, working to pull down the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able to make a way out of no way and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows.  Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but bends towards justice.[19]

If a hunter was firing his gun at a bear cub.. the mother bear should just gather up the animals of the forest and have a sit-in? Maybe they could all make signs with markers and cardboard? Maybe they should send e-mails to the hunters asking them politely to refrain from hunting anymore?

Or.. maybe mama bear should attack the hunter and rip his throat out.

You be the judge.

Which of these actions has an end result that actually benefits the bear?

Probably all of them..

Great last quote really enjoyed the article!

Fortunately, we aren't bears.

To the coment over, you missed the hole point.
The hunter.
You people dont understand, that selfdefence is a akt that does not contradict non-violents thinking.
Its a complity wrong asumpsion, even Gandhi said that in a situation wher his family under lifetrhetning situation, selfdefence and/or defending ones family or other people, is not a contradiction. Its your duty.
Its the wars that creates problems, not someone that speaks against it.

"War is a cowardly escape from the problems of peace"
— Thomas Mann

The myth of MLK proliferates. He wasn't what the image makers have us believing, and his assassination just might have been to eliminate an embarrassment. He was a tool of the Internationalists, to give the black people a rallying point, in order to further divide our society. He was a Communist, you know, whatever that means.

kevin said...

bill, i hope you don't tell that crap to the kids on your bus. did you read the beautiful quotes from MLK in the article? they didn't have any affect on you?

yogi, you are totally right, we are not bears. and hunters can be reasoned with, and reformed, and their hunting grounds can be turned into utopias where hunting (monterarism) is illegal.

great article, MLK was a true leader and a revolutionary thinker. he understood the importance of leadership, creativity, and justice. his murder did not end his fight, it emboldened it.

This was a fantastic article on Dr. King. Thank you very much.

these articles pop up everywhere these days, i like it and think its good, i´m also fascinated about these things. however i reckon nothing will happen until its too late, after WWIII or w/e.

humans are too slow and too committed with our day to day life.
no one wants to have less money in their pockets in reality.

that being said and if all goes well and humans actually return back to stone-edge type of life it will only be a question of time before we do the same things all over.

in the end of the day there is only that many seats around the table...like it or not. we are not built this way, we are greedy and will always be.

if the same thing that will happen in Iran soon would have happened in the 1750s or w/e USA would have been heroes.

its my time now!

i am open minded and in full support of activism, but one question arose for me upon reading this article.

how would you go about becoming a home owner without a mortgage? without becoming a slave to the banks? the only way i can see is to buy one outright, but to save enough money to do this is a big job.

i realise the ideal is to not be using money to trade goods and services, but the world is not ideal as yet. what is the answer in today's world?

i would love to know!

As to the remark about "naive young men and women" joining the military... That's the one out of a hundred. From my experience, the VAST majority of individuals who join the US military join for no reason other than poverty. They come from places with no work, no education system, and absolutely no hope. I know in my division there was one misguided patriot, one man out for revenge for the death of his father, and maybe four people who were simply confused... five if you count the guy who was outed before the first night ended... and one furry "dracogriffin" who was ... weird... The rest? Escaping poverty. Poverty is, and has always been the means of building an army.

ekrayson, you should understand that our understanding of a "home" is a complete fabrication. A house can be a tent, built of stones around, or slabs of concrete you find, or even a hole in a hillside, if you are happy enough you will make it home.

Owner built homes are very possible. There are kit homes of timber-frame simple enough for most people to put together. Cob, adobe, and superadobe are also simple in nature. Other mentalities like heating systems such as "rocket heaters" or DIY solar air and water heat are well within the realm of the average human's ability.

Elliot Coleman outlines all season gardening techniques which take a minimum of time and effort, in his book entitled: "gardening in all seasons" or something of that nature. Perennial gardens are bound to come into light as the years come to pass as well.

Oh dear Bill, trolling again are we? Silly man. I pity you in many ways. Think you mistook this page for the stormfront website. It's an easy enough mistake to make when you've got blinders on. MLK was one of the most inspirational leaders there ever was. There have been a few more since his time both black and white that aren't as well known. What we need is unity, togetherness, love and to use our minds to combat the brainwashing that we are subjected to on a daily basis. Bill take note. If we don't use our minds, someone else will.

The Rosa parks bit is a common misconception. Rosa parks WAS sitting at the back of a bus, but she refused to give up her seat when a white person demanded her seat. The fact is, she wasn't even breaking the unjust rules being imposed on her, but at least she took a stand. Her actions serve as a lesson to us all.

One problem..no one thinks the same..if we would unite ..and wake up..we could actually stop this..
