Will Enough of Us Refuse?

Dan and Sheila Gendron, Contributors
Activist Post

Living without the bonds of TV affords me the luxury of having time to read. As my third book this month, I happened to pick the Leon Uris novel, QB VII, written in the 1970s, when there was still something to be proud about in America, and when there were still enough people around who could remember the horrors of WWII.

The story takes place in post-WWII England, and is about a libel suit brought by a Polish Nationalist doctor (Kelno) against a former POW in Jadwiga concentration camp, a Jewish-American author (Cady), who names him as performing surgeries for German doctors who were experimenting on Jewish prisoners.

This is part of the opening statement made by the defense attorney (for Cady) in the British courtroom:
Well, as a matter of fact there were some Germans, soldiers, officers, priests, doctors, and ordinary civilians who refused to obey these orders and said, ‘I am not going to do this because I would not like to live and have this on my conscience. I’m not going to push them into gas chambers, and then say later I was under orders and justify it by saying that they were going to be pushed in by someone anyhow and I can’t stop it and other people will push them more cruelly. Therefore, it’s in their best interest that I shove them in gently.’ You see, the trouble was, not enough of these people refused. 1
When my tears subsided I thought, what an amazing time to be reading this. How appropriate to what is happening in our country now.

Day after day we see headlines about the indignities suffered by air travelers at the hands of TSA agents who are content to place their hands on the genitals of passengers of no matter what ages for their daily ration of bread (read: HFCS, MSG, GMO, etc.). And still the passengers line up for the privilege of being “man-handled” so that they can get to grandma’s house or their next business meeting a little faster instead of saying, “I am a free American and you may NOT touch me without cause,” or even, “I will not ride your airplane if I must be accosted so.”


Day after day we see headlines about some police officer tazering an elderly citizen for asking a question, or throwing the occupant of a wheelchair to the ground to prove that he is handicapped . . . or killing a veteran for having a gun in his own home. And still we say, “Yes, sir” to the police and skulk away in fear, instead of saying, “Don’t do that to this person!”

Day after day we see headlines about what a potential criminal/terrorist -- someone to be suspected regardless of their actions -- is the person who cites the U.S. Constitution to affirm their rights, or likes a certain political candidate, or has served his or her country in the military, or just wants to be left alone by “the system”, or has the audacity to disagree with the current administration -- or who asks for acknowledgement of the truth instead of ridicule on a point of fact. And still we say, “Thank goodness you’re taking care of my safety and security, because I don’t want to get my hands dirty,” instead of saying, “I have a right to my opinion, to think my own thoughts.”

Day after day we see headlines about the millions cheated out of their homes, losing their jobs, forced to beg the government for poisoned food that will make their children imbeciles compared to who they could have been so that those who control the money can amass more and more for themselves, reaching orgasm at the thought of how much they have attained and how they can hold the “cattle” as slaves.

And still we say, “Thank you for the job as a hamburger flipper so that I can pay you most of my wages in taxes,” instead of saying, “I will take care of my money myself.”

Stand up. Don’t let them grope you. Don’t let them go through your car at a warrantless checkpoint. Don’t let them search your home without cause or due process. Don’t let them control your money. TPTB’s philosophy is: if you don’t complain, nothing is wrong. Start complaining. Start deciding that you won’t allow yourself -- or others -- to be treated this way.

We are at the proverbial “slippery slope”. From here it will be easy to fall into the same state as was controlled by the German Nazis. The slogan of the time was, “Never Forget!” But TPTB are doing everything possible -- dumbing us down, directing thought -- to make us forget so that they can use the same tactics unencumbered by the ghosts of the slaughtered. Don’t allow us and our children to be next. Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. Just make sure the history you remember is the truth.

Aldous Huxley is quoted as saying (paraphrased) that the ideal situation is one in which the slave is contented with his enslavement. You are an accomplice to your own enslavement. Stop being contented. Stop rationalizing your own enslavement as the best you can hope for.

TPTB know that if you don’t resist, you are theirs to exploit in any way they see fit. Stop complying. Imagine what would happen to TPTB if we all just said, “hell, no” -- no matter how gently they grab our genitals.

Through our website, survivingsurvivalism.com, we talk to far too many docile, I-have-a-million-reasons-not-to-take-action kind of people. The time to stand up is now, not as they close the gas chamber door behind you. No football game, airline flight, bus trip, concert, prom, no job, no social group is worth your human dignity -- nor your freedom. Spread the word that we are enslaved by our own volition -- and that it doesn’t have to be so. Stop complying now with that which is, at it essence, wrong. There is no excuse.
 ...You see, the trouble was, not enough of these people refused.2

You must be 100% right about this.

In my article "Birthing the Divine Warrior" (here on activist post) I ask readers to take the same position. In fact, I particularly ask 'aware' individuals to take this step and to recognise that it is not 'contrary' to following the spiritual path - but is a very important component of that path.

There will be no 'enlightenment' without taking control of our destinies and refusing to comply with the demands of the fascistic control machine.

There is no evidence of gas chambers in Germany during WW2, only for delousing. Please quit spouting propaganda. As far as the TSA is concerned. I agree

Strategic lane choice has gooten me through
without the feeling I should leave $20 on the table after I reassemble my stuff for the last
12 trips, in the US. In Eurpoe and elsewhere the the pornopalace does not exist. I scout the airports I want to fly out of and record very carefully the down time of one or more of the
grope gates. Then I a run a statistical analysis mapping probablies for just a luggage
scan and metal detector. Last 12 trips, no
pornoscan (which I ALWAYS refuse) and grope..

(1) W-rong Bush hired the former Head of the East German STASI to help create TSA.
(2) The TSA is specificly designed to lull the American Public into passively accepting random, pointless, searches at the whim of the government. Look at them. TSA screeners are being trained to be smiling and polite. WHY? To appear benign and unthreatening as they strip you of your Freedom. The reason they came up with an underwear bomber is the same reason they came up with a shoe bomber. First they wanted to get into your shoes and then they wanted to get into your underwear. After that they want to get into your body. But job one, day one, they want to get into your head. These are stages of humiliation designed to strip you of your dignity.
(3) When building a SUPPRESSIVE FORCE you do not CARE how foul your "minions" are .... It is a well documented FACT that TSA has never caught a Terrorist, but, TSA Human Resources has found a whole lot of TERRORISTS. As a matter of fact, TSA Human Resources only hires Terrorists. The best "anti-terrorist" move the USA could make, would be to arrest everyone that TSA Human Resources hires because that is all they hire, Terrorists. Rapists, Thieves, Muggers, Pedophiles, Drug Smugglers.

There were NO GAS CHAMBERS for killing humans in WW2!

"There is no evidence of gas chambers in Germany during WW2 . . ." do you have something to show me which proves this is so? If not, you have no right to call it propaganda, do you. I'm not saying I do or don't agree with any of the ww2 info, I'm just saying if you have no evidence to the contrary you shouldn't make assumptions about it being "propaganda" any more than anyone else. Most sof what we know about ww2, unless it came from an actual american soldier/survivor (most of which are gone now) is hearsay or is a dolled up version from TV, made to look either better than it was or worse than it was depending on the angle of the writer. A lot of the photos were pretty compelling, but photos can be doctored (and probably were, even back then). So much of what we think we know, we really don't know. That's why I ask if you have some sort of proof of your statement.

Simon Wiesenthal himself said there were 'no

I have evidence there were gas chambers in Germany. My relatives were there. Anonymous, you haven't a clue.

What are you denialists doing on this site? This is site is for people who are educated and want to make a difference in the world. Why don't you try the KKK site. You'd do better there.

Activism means getting your head out of the sand.

Anonymous is keeping his head stuck in a hole and then denying the sun exists because he hasn't seen it.

From the Nuremberg trials:

M. Dubost: What do you know about the Jewish transport that arrived from Romainville about the same time as you?

Vaillant-Couturier: When we left Romainville the Jewish women who were together with us remained behind. They were sent to Drancy, and finally arrived in Auschwitz, where we saw them again three weeks later. Of 1,200 who left, only 125 arrived in the camp. The rest were taken to the gas chambers immediately, and of the 125 not a single one was left by the end of a month.

So there were no gas chambers, huh? Right from one of the guilty people who were there's mouth!!! Easy to look up to. Got the info from here:

http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/autest.html

By the way, I do realize the Jewish people aren't the only ones who lived through horrors... but I also am willing to admit that the things the Jewish people say they went through, proven, happened. No one should forget the horrers that happened to ANY civilization. There are other places to find transcripts of the trial too, proving the same!! What is your problem with admitting that a culture was put through atrocities? It happened, just as the many other atrocities, such as the near extinction of the native peoples in the US and Canada (worse in the US, unfortunatley), as well as the other genocides that have been occuring in other parts of the world. Geez, man! How to help heal the world if we call victims of crimes and atrocities liars?

Boycott ALL airlines. It is a money issue. If you resent being treated like a terrorist by the airlines when you are not then DON'T FLY; JUST DON"T FLY.

I happen to not believe the stories of the "Holocaust". At the very least they were greatly exaggerated - if you want evidence for this consider how they (Jews) have forced much of Europe to declare investigating what really happened a Thought Crime. You will literally go to jail if you disagree with the "official" story. Why would they do that, an unprecedented breach of the most basic rights of free thought if their story were true?
The fact is they were work camps - the very idea of the ever practical Germans wasting precious gas to incinerate millions of bodies is a macabre fantasy. They died of starvation (just like the rest of the German population were on the edge of starvation due to Allied bombing) combined with Typhus.
The Jews in Israel should give thanks every day to Hitler because without him and the holocaust myth they would not be tolerated. They exist on the "Eternal Victim" bullshit. Personally I'm sick to death of it - Israel is a rogue state - we Need to stop supporting their crimes against humanity.

Regarding the Holocaust: I am surprised at what readers here consider proof. This is an activist site and if we want our views to be taken seriously we need to provide more evidence- facts, figures, dates, photos, etc... Testimony from witnesses may be helpful and acceptable in a courtroom but it does not constitute scientific proof.
As a reader of this site I try to keep an open mind about many of the issues. The Holocaust is one of them. What surprises me is how many people just accept the story as given and refuse to even consider another possibility or give credence to anyone who suggests that the facts do not add up.

Sources please. If you have no sources, then you're the one spouting propaganda. So you think all the concentration camp survivors I've met are lying? I think your statement is cruel and evil and you are supremely ignorant and bigoted. Rot in hell you Nazi.

It is really unbelievable what’s happening – the banks are taking houses away via fraudulent paperwork, our judges are allowing them to do that and our elected gov officials are not doing anything to criminally prosecute them and to keep those families in their homes…so many heartbreaking stories…so many people turned into zombies, emotionally dead and in many cases physically disabled after many years of fighting for justice…I’ve started an online radio show yesterday titled – Foreclosure Fraud and its Victims – and the interest and the audience just prove that many feel alone and hopeless in the sea of fraud. Here is the podcast: http://blogtalk.vo.llnwd.net/o23/show/3/802/show_3802895.mp3 and the next episode airs on Sunday, October 14th at 1:00 pm EST:

As Register John O'Brien (MA) says in this CBS Atlanta segment:"My registry is a crime scene", I just want to point out - our country is a crime scene and what are we going to do about that:

We should all stop and think about the facts in front of us and ask ourselves – How with a clear conscience can we let this continue?

No one is going to stand up and DO anything. Americans are slaves, and willingly so. Lots of armchair heros and hot air but in the end they all line up and bend over. They will never, never refuse.
