Yeah……..while we can. See, I don’t think the end time bs is going to happen exactly like they say it does. However, I have a feeling one day soon we shall be destroyed, our freedom crushed. Humans are too stupid on Earth and it will soon culminate into a big ball of fiery death and oppression. I will of course be one of the first to be killed rebeling against this, but I am afraid we shall fail. All the people in charge of our world seem intent on killing us all. Or do they term it “utopia”? Guess they never read “The Giver”….

Ah well, maybe it will. Maybe it won’t.
Personally, if it’s going to happen, I’d rather go down fighting too. In the 1940s our grandparents fought against totalitarian states who believed that it was right to control what their citizens thought, that it was right to control their lives, listen to their conversations, and to breed a culture of paranoia and hatred.
We owe it to them to do the same.

Owing things to dead people and wanting to pay them back is always a loosing proposition. Resisting totalitarian states should be an end in itself, whether your grandparents did the same – or not! Particularly when some of us have grandparents that were part of these totalitarian states.
