Who do you say you are in this planetary shitstorm of psychopathic lies versus breakthrough potential? A being of love and truth, minion of evil, or obedient sheeple?

“There are some questions we all answer, but few ask.”
~ Michael Faraday (unsourced) on a UCLA building

“There are three scales of intelligence:
one which understands by itself,
a second which understands what is shown it by others,
and a third which understands neither by itself nor on the showing of others.”
~Niccolò Machiavelli. The Prince, Chapter XXII, page 172 (London: Oxford University Press, 1913, translated by Ninian Hill Thomson)

I started writing in 2004 when all the War on Terror lies exceeded my working memory as a high school teacher of history, government, and economics. It took me 41 pages to document the “official” lies in that White Paper later circulated among interested Members of Congress.

Although public interest has expanded, perhaps 98% of Americans still war propaganda because they are unwilling and/or incapable to recognize the single most important truth regarding ongoing US armed attacks: they are illegal Wars of Aggression. Ongoing US unlawful war-murders to control resources (natural and human) are central to foreign policy annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions.

Although I’ve tried all I can imagine short of martyrdom, it seems I cannot help sheeple become people. For just three examples among what I estimate an easy 100:
No teacher among ~80 at my current high school will stand with me to assert US armed attacks are illegal. This is two months after they received my full documentation and a 1-page summary, and a follow-up informing that I requested all four main branches of the US military (Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines) along with Political Science Chairs of UC Berkeley and Cal State East Bay to explain how current US armed attacks are legal (we provided full documentation and 1-page summary) with none responding. In further outreach to get an answer, UC Berkeley’s Public Affairs Office characterized our question of how US armed attacks are legal as a “research project” rather than an obvious public question given US military accounts for over half our tax dollars (3-minute infographic video). Those who care so little to respond include a department of Social Science teachers who presumably have deep interest in exactly this topic. If I had just two colleagues in agreement, I would request our district superintendent to remove military recruitment from our schools because they lie children into imperial War Crimes.
None of the ~2,000 Advanced Placement Economics teachers on our list serve will stand with me that two economic reforms (public banking and monetary reform) would solve most of our emergency condition of accelerating and unpayable aggregate debt and poverty, or even debate me that these are objective facts. This is despite 10 years’ work on this list serve, publication of those facts by The Claremont Colleges, and the witnessed underfunding of public education with ever darker future forecasts.
None in my family stand with me to even ask about any direct or connected topics. They know what I research and write about. They have zero counterpoints when discussions come up, but these topics are overall insufficient interest to ever ask about, even in curiosity of my greatest interest.
This is not meant to be a negative judgment. It is a good-faith appraisal that these required topics for living in freedom are somehow inaccessible to these beings better described as sheeple because of herd obedience to perceived authority.

After 42 years of civic activism, I conclude that fundamental citizen responsibility is too much to ask of sheeple. This conclusion matches the ongoing data that the US is an illegal rogue state empire removing all inalienable rights guaranteed by the US Constitution. For this to be true, critical mass must be among the sheeple rather than people. It also matches my observation that ~98% of bipeds are sheeple, and ~2% people.

Neither is this meant to be a negative judgment. If you find the ~98% sheeple and ~2% people estimate inaccurate and/or mislabeled, answer me these:
How can we best describe the difference between those with intellectual integrity and moral courage to speak the truth about what they see of our illegal government versus those who won’t and/or can’t, even when shown clearly what is in front of their own eyes?
Don’t we need two different labels to distinguish between those bipeds capable of recognizing propaganda covering tragic-comic empire from those insufficiently equipped to see War Crimes and propaganda?
The above two questions are also too important to ignore given annual costs of empire are millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted, yes? If we include animals and plants in our count, this significantly increases the importance of bipeds either being responsible or irresponsible for escalating destruction of empire that includes nuclear annihilation of all life on Earth.
So who do you say you are?

As I embrace the data that people are insufficient to help sheeple rise from work animal status, this allows me to accept all past failures of projects to solve real-world problems. Past failures do not guarantee future failures, but history is where to begin predictions.

All this said, a question we totally control is who we say we are.

Perhaps that is the central question at the purpose for our existence as people among sheeple: to serve their preparation for an answer to either virtue or vice, good or evil, truth and love or manipulation and control.

Because Earth has been given to evil somehow (because evil is in control given ongoing psychopathic empires), then perhaps sheeple are the creation of an evil “god” seeking slaves to toil in his “gardens.” Of course sheeple would be ordered to never “eat from the Tree of Knowledge” to discern good from evil (Genesis 2). An evil god would indeed threaten death to those who could recognize “god” as just a more-powerful being who is a psychopathic slave master.

Sheeple bowing to a fake “god” is strikingly similar to bipeds bowing to kings and queens claiming “divine right” to rule. In the American Revolution, my understanding is that Americans were equally split in thirds: one for revolution, one for loyalty to King & Country, one indifferent. What we have in the present is certain: American sheeple surrendered limited government under the US Constitution to rogue state empire.

But perhaps a close battle between good and evil is the right environment for choice. Perhaps we all must see and feel the outcomes of such war so as to best understand both paths, and make our choice who we will serve. Perhaps the intended outcome is to feel so strongly that we sacrifice our lives for the path of our choice. Perhaps sheeple must remain in such an environment until they evolve enough to recognize good from evil, then choose a side:

“Wisdom comes through suffering. Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.” ~ Greek poet and playwrite Aeschylus

Are forces above human allowing victory for virtue, if we take it?

I “interviewed” Socrates to consider this question. I conclude I can’t be any wiser than Socrates to know that I don’t know anything beyond recognizing our promised freedoms mask a viciously destructive empire.

I document that empire, and end with such summary, which is perhaps the summary of my contributions for freedom: pointing to the obvious to an audience who would rather kill me than look.

Are Americans at the Emperor’s New Clothes moment of The Great Awakening, or need more evil pain to awaken?

When and if Earth’s humans have an Emperor’s New Clothes victory to see, point, and speak the obvious of ongoing lying, looting, and psychopathic-murderous empire is still in contest.

Patriots in independent media have documented much to professionally explain, document, and prove these outrageous crimes beyond any shadow of any doubt. Read on should such evidence be helpful:

Not sure that US “leadership” are criminals with their crimes “covered” by corporate media and public education?

Consider a brief listing, just as Thomas Jefferson detailed crimes of his own government one year before official policy of gun confiscation in that previous revolution:
Empires loot, plain and simple. American sheeple are, of course, targeted and looted by the tens of trillions. Monetary reform and public banking are two reforms documented since Ben Franklin wrote about colonial Pennsylvania operating without need to tax. Benefits of these two reforms are ~$1,000,000 per US household. You literally have nothing more valuable to learn, and must, or you can kiss your assets goodbye to “required austerity.” Economic solutions for a world that works for everyone with no-one left out have been documented since Bucky Fuller over 50 years ago.
The US is not limited government under a constitution, but systematically removing rights once asserted as God-given and secured by government to defend Life, Liberty, and pursuit of Happiness. US military and government employees are Oath-bound to recognize illegal and lying empire, refuse to obey illegal orders (there are no lawful orders for illegal Wars of Aggression), and arrest those who issue them.
Our “leaders” have poverty and war-murdered over 400 million people in just the last 25 years. The .01% "leaders" of "former" colonial/slave powers and "developed" nations promised the end of poverty since 1969 at global summits, with less than 1% GNI investment (a fraction of colonial looting) for a total ~10-year project for ~$1 trillion (about what the US annually invests for military). The 400+ million poverty deaths just since 1993 is more than deaths from all wars and violence of any kind in all human history.
The ongoing reneged promises to end poverty with lying corporate media complicity (see this astounding disinformation from the NY Times) means our "leaders" prefer unimaginable suffering and death rather than technically-simple solutions.
Our .01% opponents overthrow democracies challenging global empire: 80+ since World War 2.
They engage in democide: murder by government to keep our numbers low and weak through fluoride, vaccines, GMO non-foods, and many other attacks on our vitality (explore).
A dark, deep topic on its own: they are pedophiles.
People around the world view the US as the greatest threat to peace; voted three times more dangerous than any other country.
Since WW2, Earth has had 248 armed conflicts. The US started 201 of them.
These US armed attacks have killed ~30 million and counting; 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men (and here).
The annual number of poverty deaths is equal in volume to a Freedom Tower in NYC. “Leaders” of “developed” nations have promised the end of poverty since 1969. Better read that again, and reflect on its meaning of what kind of “leaders” we have in the “developed” world.
Since Operation O.I.L. (Operation Iraqi Liberation; yes, that was the oligarchs’ first name), 2.4 million Iraqis have been killed as a direct consequence.
The US is arguably worse in corruption, psychopathy, and causing misery than tragic-comic Roman Emperors. Such “leaders” certainly have the greater capacity to harm.

There's no need to believe anyone with any of this independently-verifiable data: look for yourself.

Other options include this White Paper circulated among Members of Congress, or this 56-minute interview to define rogue state empire with three case studies:

You don't need further data, and that said, there's more in abundance:
When Americans are told an election is defined by touching a computer screen without a countable receipt that can be verified, they are being told a criminal lie to allow election fraud. This is self-evident, but Princeton, Stanford, and the President of the American Statistical Association are among the leaders pointing to the obvious (and here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here). Again, no professional would/can argue an election is legitimate when there is nothing for anyone to count. The facts show Bernie Sanders won the Democratic Primary election, and claims by Democratic “leadership” of Russian election “meddling” are without factual documentation.
US military now illegally occupy eight bases in Syria (and here), with escalating bombing of Syria and Iraq of over 4,000 bombs/month, and over 84,000 since 2014. The US acknowledges ~500 civilian deaths from these bombs, with independent count of ~750 just in June 2017, and causing the worst war-destruction since Vietnam.
Among dozens of independent writers, I’ve documented that all “reasons” for wars on Iran, Syria, and Russia are easily proved lies (recently, here, here, here, and going back to 2005), with US Department of illegal Wars of Aggression (so-called “Defense”) claiming to have “lost” $65,000 for every US household.
To repeat because of central importance: destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution, and in Orwellian inversion of limited government.
Propagandizing Americans is supported by US intelligence "leaders" and "experts" to manipulate public opinion for illegal war (and here).
Iran has never threatened to “wipe Israel off the map” and only has IAEA-verified legal energy and medicine programs with nuclear materials. Trump and corporate media continues and escalates easily-verified lies to threaten more illegal war on Iran.
Israel engages in lie-started and illegal War of Aggression on Gaza; ironically the largest concentration camp in world history. This is also easy to verify.
Categories of crime include:
Wars of Aggression (the worst crime a nation can commit).
Likely treason for lying to US military, ordering unlawful attack and invasions of foreign lands, and causing thousands of US military deaths.
Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).
US military, law enforcement, and all with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, face an endgame choice:
Demand arrests, with those with lawful authority to enact it. An arrest is the lawful action to stop apparent crimes, with the most serious crimes documented here meaning the most serious need for arrests.
Watch the US escalate its rogue state crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions.
In just 90 seconds, former US Marine Ken O’Keefe powerfully states how you may choose to voice “very obvious solutions”: arrest the criminal leaders (video starts at 20:51, then finishes this episode of Cross Talk):

I make all factual assertions as a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, Economics, and History (also credentialed in Mathematics), with all economic factual claims receiving zero refutation since I began writing in 2008 among Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teachers on our discussion board, public audiences of these articles, and international conferences (and here). I invite readers to empower their civic voices with the strongest comprehensive facts most important to building a brighter future. I challenge professionals, academics, and citizens to add their voices for the benefit of all Earth’s inhabitants.
