It doesn't take a conspiracy, or does it?

What are you doing, America? I mean really, each and every one of you individually, what are you doing?

Ever since July 30th events have been spiraling out of control and available information has been flowing like never before. Just go back through my blog posts! Nothing worth mentioning, then suddenly on July 30th Bush signs EO 12333 into law and all hell breaks loose. Coincidence? I'm sorry, but this many parallel events cannot be accidental. Someone, somewhere has begun pulling threads and the Gordian knot of our civilization is rapidly unwinding.

You know, it's crazy. I just made a post this morning, not even eight hours ago, and now I learn of yet another atrocity:

Crowd Mourns Fairfield Councilman
Councilman Shot - Fairfield Stunned
Shooting Shocks City
Fairfield Councilman Shot, to come off life support
Councilman Running from Gunman When Shot

Two discussion forums on the shooting:

My Friend was Shot Last Night
Fairfield Councilman Shot in the Head
His Obituary on Usenet Group Alt.Obituaries

A quick timeline just from the information in the news articles goes like this:

21 year-old Matt Garcia is elected to Fairfield City Council
Matt Garcia launches many youth-oriented initiatives
City Council and other local influence centers are stunned into silence
Matt Garcia fights to keep Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield

and then,

Matt Garcia stops by a female friend's house one evening
As he gets out of his car a man steps out of a car across the street and starts firing
Matt flees, but is shot in the back of the head
Police launch an investigation while loved ones mourn
City Council and other influence groups break their recent silence to offer consolation

Knock! Knock! Reality calling!

Someone assassinated Matt Garcia. Is that someone directly connected to some huge conspiracy group working to create a New World Order? Of course not! However, does his death help the New World Order continue pushing their agenda? Oh, yes! It most certainly does!

I don't know who the police will eventually arrest in this senseless, tragic death. I'll offer ten to one odds the person arrested winds up being a local thug of some kind, probably with a reputation for drug sales and a well-known gang affiliation. He will, of course, claim to be an innocent patsy who was nowhere near the scene. Some tearful mother (or inner-city girl with affiliations to the same gang) will claim the alleged shooter was with her at the time, but everyone knows such people lie to protect violent men they love, so her testimony will be ignored or discredited.

Who is really behind the shooting? Knowing what I do about human nature, history, and the psychology of a criminal mind, I can point to three people in the news articles above and promise you that at least one of those three either knows the true killer personally, or is connected to the killer through a secondary relationship of some kind. No, I will not name them! I am seven thousand miles away and my opinion is pure speculation based on secondary news stories. Statistically, I'm probably wrong.

Besides, in the end it doesn't matter. This young man was gunned down right at very beginning of what should have been a long political career devoted to reform. His death, whether casual or intentional, is symptomatic of a much larger problem. Our world consistently destroys the people we need to make it a better place. For some reason far beyond mere coincidence, the only people allowed to achieve greatness for any length of time are inevitably selfish, egocentric, corrupt individuals who treat everyone beyond their inner circle as lesser life-forms.

Nothing is going to improve until we reach the point where the reformers outnumber the elitists and the only way for that to happen is for each of us individually to stop blaming the world around us for our problems and take some kind of action to make our little corner of the world a better place.

It starts with you. It does not matter who you are or where you live. You and you alone are the only one who can turn society around and get us back on track to a world based on fairness and cooperation rather than domination and competition.

You have to change your life. If you don't, then don't be surprised when eighteen months from now you find yourself enslaved.
