1. Life Has been made illegal

We exist in a dystopian state where the very act of living has been made illegal.

People who grow survival gardens have crops ripped out of the ground by police while companies like Monsanto are allowed to poison the land with toxic chemicals and create GMO seeds that self terminate.

It’s been made illegal to grow vegetables in your own yard.

It is illegal to fish without a license while giant fishing companies deplete all the fish from the sea.

People are jailed for collecting rainwater on their own property while bottled water companies are allowed to drain unlimited fresh water even in regions prone to fires and drought.

It has been made illegal to live off the grid and people are forced by law enforcement under threat of being evicted from their homes to hook up to metered utility companies after disconnecting services to become more independent and self reliant.

Police use excessive force to raid medical cannabis dispensaries while pharmaceutical companies are allowed to promote deadly prescription drugs which kill over a hundred thousand people every year resulting in the third leading cause of death.

Farmers are arrested for selling fresh milk and SWAT teams raid raw food markets while the dairy industry is allowed to inject sickly animals with harmful drugs and contaminate the entire world with antibiotic resistant superbugs.

Ranchers are arrested for grazing free range cattle and even murdered while factory farms are allowed to keep millions of sickly animals caged in “flu factories”. 

We are no longer allowed to live freely.

Basic human activities which have been practiced in every civilization throughout the course of history have been made illegal to engage in without a proper license, permit, or certification.

It is illegal to sell food cooked in your home.

It is illegal to be a street vendor and sell goods in public.

It is illegal to play music in public.

It is illegal to entertain without an “amusement license”.

It is illegal to cut hair without a license.

It is illegal to trim or paint fingernails without a license.

It is illegal to teach without a license. Parents are even arrested for homeschooling their own children and have their homes raided by police.

It is illegal to run any business without a license to the point that it has been made illegal for kids to have lemonade stands which are shut down by police.

It’s been made illegal for girlscouts to sell cookies without getting shut down by the police.

It is illegal to sell cupcakes.

It is illegal to have food stands and sell fresh produce on the side of the road.

It is illegal to dig holes and plant shrubs for a living without being a “licensed landscape architect“.

Kids trying to work a summer job can’t mow lawns without a business license or will get shut down by state authorities.

It has been made illegal to shampoo hair without a license.

It is illegal to work almost any trade without a license and in Illinois it requires 175 days of training to be a licensed makeup artist but only 26 days to become a licensed Emergency Medical Technician.

All of these onerous laws, rules, and regulations sold to us as being “for our safety” are only meant to give the criminal rackets connected to the corrupt government an exclusive monopoly over every industry while destroying entrepreneurship and making it impossible for the average person to survive independently. 

The harm being caused by these onerous laws which prevent people from being self sufficient is further compounded by relentless taxation that has driven countless people into debt, bankruptcy, and homelessness.

To make matters worse, it is being made illegal to be homeless.

It has even been made illegal to feed people who are homeless.

It is illegal to give free eyeglasses to the homeless.


2. Repeated Violations of Civil Rights

It is clear there is no justice in our legal system and our basic civil rights have been entirely eroded to the point of being nonexistent.

The constitution guarantees the right to “peaceably assemble” and yet peaceful people have been brutally arrested for the crime of dancing at the Jefferson Memorial.

The Constitution states that no law shall be made “abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press” and yet the deep state within the NSA works actively with major tech companies to censor the internet.

When honest people expose government crimes and corruption the whistleblowers are prosecuted while the criminals who actually committed the crimes being exposed are never investigated and remain free.

Peaceful protesters are consistently met with militarized police violence, including native tribes protesting on their own land, who are sprayed with water hoses and weaponized tear gas, subjected to tasers and sound cannons, and shot with “less lethal” rubber bullets and explosive concussion grenades

Supposedly we are secure in our “persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures” but the Orwellian government surveillance state invasively spies on every citizen.

Every year police are allowed to illegally seize hundreds of millions of dollars from innocent people in civil asset forfeiture without any trial. 

Supposedly we have the right to “keep and bear arms” except during emergencies when the government has the “extraordinary powers” to enforce a complete ban on the sale of guns, ammunition, and also gasoline.

It is clear we are living in an authoritarian state. What good are any of these so-called “rights” we are supposedly granted if the rights are not allowed to be exercised?

The constitution states that “excessive bail shall not be required” yet millions of people languish in jail just waiting for a trial which in some cases can take over a year even if they are later found to be innocent.

The constitution guarantees us all the absolute right to a “speedy and public trial by an impartial jury” but only 2% of defendants get a trial by jury.

If every person accused of committing a crime actually demanded their civil rights be upheld it would collapse the entire court system which does not have the capacity to give everyone a fair trial by jury. 

The constitution clearly states that “excessive fines shall not be imposed” but also at any time a person can be fined $30,000 and have their home foreclosed on for simply not mowing the lawn

The constitution absolutely ensures “no cruel and unusual punishments inflicted” except a mentally ill homeless person was murdered by police for the crime of wandering alone in the dessert.

Every year many people living in this so-called “land of the free” are murdered by police for minor offenses like failing to put on a turn signal, selling cigarettes, or simply not obeying commands fast enough.

We live in a dystopian police state that has corrupt bureaucrats in charge of the law and mindless automatons who unquestionably follow orders.
