do your patriotic duty

"A patriot must always be ready to defend his country
against his government." - Edward Abbey

"Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel." – Samuel Johnson

"In the beginning of a change, the Patriot is a scarce man and brave, hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot." – Mark Twain

"When I was deployed in Iraq and had a chance to watch American news channels, I heard commentators say that if we question or criticize our government, we do not love America and are being unpatriotic. They believed that patriotism meant waving a flag and being blindly obedient, but this is not what it means to love our country. If we love our country we will do our best to improve it. We will try to make America a better place for everyone, as courageous citizens have always done." - Captian Paul K. Chappell, US Army

"Patriotism runs counter to ordinary human morality. This flagrant negation of humanity, which constitutes the very essence of the State, is from the point of view of the latter the supreme duty and the greatest virtue: it is called patriotism and it constitutes a morality of the State beyond human comprehension. The morality of the State is the reversal of human justice and human morality. This anti-human morality of the State requires the corruption of men who are charged with carrying on State functions. The triumph of human morality can be realized only through the destruction of the State." - Mikhail Bakunin


"The ideal of patriotism is taught to citizens of every nation as soon as they enter kindergarten. Being gradually reinforced all through school, patriotism becomes ingrained. Most citizens accept patriotism as they accept grass being green - just a natural aspect of their lives.

Perceiving deceit and falsehood behind political rhetoric is a necessary discernment any person who wishes to have a truly free mind must cultivate. If you cannot separate your feelings from the source of stimuli and see the entire process as objectively as possible, you are ripe for knee-jerk patriotism.

Cultivating an awareness of the negative machinations of one's government isn't an exercise confined to the political arena of anti-establishment radicalism. Such awareness - has to do with learning to perceive things with a well honed intelligence, to see things as they are.

The ability to perceive the distortions of manipulative propaganda requires being respectfully attentive to the reality of Earth, attentiveness of cultural differences in order to understand others and in reciprocal comparison, learn about ourselves.

Understanding patriotism demands being informed beyond what standard schooling teaches and corporate media conveys." - Lew Paz

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
