Systems that Control You: Food & Water

Without water, you die in three days. And, without food, you’ll collapse in about two weeks, and die 30-40 agonizing days later. Did you know that they found dinosaur fossils, where they could extrapolate that the poor creatures had eaten rocks in their final days? Rocks. Can you imagine the state you would have to be in to eat a rock? Pretty much all life will stop at nothing to prevent starvation or thirst. Hell, look at what some people will do to stay in cigarettes and beer, let alone food and water. That’s a whole lot of dependency, therefore, a whole lot of leverage and power to be had.

It should come as no surprise to you then that your food and water is addictive and poisonous.

After all, if you are going to addict and poison people on a mass scale, you do it with something they already must use. Because, it that case, its simply a matter of closing off alternative options.

Now, I know what some of you are thinking. Biased, liberal, pansy crap.

Ok.

No, I get it. I was exactly there once upon a time. I hear, understand, and have made, your arguments.

But here’s the great thing, Darkworking can settle the issue beyond contestation, but it can only do so on an individual level. In this path, we don’t endlessly waste our lives debating things. We put them to the test and find out. Logic, for us, is decoupled from truth. At best, it will only tell us what could be true. In the end, we put the logic down and go test it and find out. Truth is individual, and is made of real-world effects.

I was in the resistor camp, my Dependency here was deep. I had a friend who continued to pester me on this issue. We wrestled for a long time. Finally, I gave in to a simple proposal. No changes in my diet at all, just a request that I eat only organic food for a week.

I did it. I felt better. Issue settled.

I guarantee that if you do the same, you will get the same result. ALL PURE ORGANIC FOR ONE WEEK.

Now, Liberation in this sector is easy. You can do it with a handful of seeds and a spade.

I’m not asking you to become a gardening whiz, or feed your neighborhood. You don’t have to go vegan or organic. I just want you to try something. I’m asking you to simply plant a little garden, even a window box if you have an apartment. This small, simple act will weaken that Dependency, all by itself.

But, for the daring, you really can provide your own food needs. This guy feeds five, just from his city-lot back and front yard:

For water, you can begin to explore rainwater cachement:

And here, you can build a home distiller, to purify it:

Just get going. The inertia broadens the mind. Creativity is the force which is your birthright, and your liberation. Read as you go, not before you begin. After all, if you’re doing what everyone else is doing, you’re going to get the results they are getting, right? Look out your window. Are those the results you want?

Do something different. Be someone different.
