Chapter 4: A Mind Free from the Fear of Dominators It’s New Year’s Day 2020. When I look at you right now, as a two-year-old, ignorance is indeed bliss. You are the happiest little girl. You are truly the princess of our home. You are the apple of everybody’s eye. Not just mine. You also light up your mother. Your brothers adore you (except for maybe Max, your arch-rival and chief competitor). You melt us all to butter with your megawatt smile, dancing brown eyes, and flyaway brown curls. Oh, and your voice. When you speak, we’re all “done.”
As a two-year-old, life is so simple for you. It’s all about adventure and discovery. It’s one big party. Everything is new and exciting. You love to wear pretty dresses. You love to learn, look through books, and explore anywhere and everywhere. You love to empty cabinets. You love helping Mom and Dad with any project we are working on. And, of course, you love to play with, fight with, and manipulate your brothers.
At two, your responsibilities are few. Rules are few. You feel protected and provided for, which you are. Life is good.
But there is something way beyond all that. Something I find myself insanely jealous of.
It’s how free you are. How much the diamonds of your identity and inner peace are still in your own hands. How wonderfully ignorant you are of “They,” the dominators who want to take your diamonds. At two, you have almost no dread – extreme fear – of these dominators.
But as you read this at 12, or whatever age you are right now, you may have tears welling up in your eyes. Tears because you no longer feel like the two-year-old Hallie. Tears because you don’t feel free anymore. Tears because you feel you have little control over the details of your life. Tears because you already live with so much fear and dread.
Unfortunately, you may have tears because you don’t feel very adored by others. You have been awakened to a cruel world where everybody judges you all the time about everything. And this incessant judgment constantly makes you feel like you are not good enough, pretty enough, obedient enough, smart enough, talented enough, etc.
Maybe you have tears because you feel like everyone else defines your identity. Tears because you cannot even imagine possessing inner peace. You’ve been “wised up” on how the real-world works.
Hallie, I want to take you on a time travel journey. I want to show you what the two-year-old Hallie was like – and is like – from my present perspective. What an extremely free individual looks like. What you acted like when the diamonds of your IDENTITY and your INNER PEACE were in your own hands.
When you possessed a mind free from the fear of dominators.
First, as a two-year-old, I see someone with a mind almost entirely free from the fear of dominators in the form of the RELIGIOUS CLASS. At two, no religion has your diamonds. You have no real knowledge of the concept of God. You’re not scared of burning in a lake of fire for all eternity. You don’t know that there are 10,000 religions in the world – all of which would gladly take your diamonds and dominate you.
And perhaps no group is more zealous about stealing a baby’s two diamonds than the religious class. Jews circumcise “their” Jewish babies on the 8th day of life. Babies born into Jewish families have their diamonds taken away immediately. These babies already have an identity given to them by their religious dominators. And their Jewish dominators will be sure to program the child’s inner peace to match the identity that was forced onto the child.
Roman Catholics usually baptize “their” Catholic babies in the first months of life. Babies born into Catholic families have their diamonds taken away immediately. These babies already have an identity given to them by their religious dominators. And their Catholic dominators will be sure to program the child’s inner peace to match the identity that was forced onto the child.
Muslims whisper to Shahadah (There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger) to “their” Islamic babies immediately after birth.
Are you seeing a pattern here?
Babies born into Muslim families have their diamonds taken away immediately. These babies already have an identity given to them by their religious dominators. And their Muslim dominators will be sure to program the child’s inner peace to match the identity that was forced onto the child.
Religious dominators will take your diamonds while you are in the cradle, and they will never return them to you. You will spend a lifetime under their domination. The one life you have for sure, will be spent living in fear of displeasing your religious dominators. You will be terrified of ever resisting their domination.
You were not born into any of the religious scenarios given above. But hundreds of millions of babies have been, are being, and will be. We will talk later about the religious background of the family you were born into.
For now, I return to the point at hand. At two, your mind is free from fear of religious dominators. You do not suffer anxiety concerning the big questions of God.
· Is there one God? · Is there a Trinity? · Which version of God is correct? · Is it the Muslim God? · Is it the Jewish God? · Is it the Christian God? · Are all these the same God? · Which of the 34,000 versions of Christianity is the right one? · Which holy book is true? · Is it the Koran? · Is it the Torah? · Is it the New Testament?
These questions are not on the radar of a happy toddler.
Must be nice.
Let me state something without apology. Nothing has ruined your father’s sense of inner peace more in life than religious class dominators.
And what amazes me is this: as a two-year-old, you don’t even feel religious guilt – at all. You have no knowledge of the 613 rules of the Torah, even the 10 commandments. You know nothing of the hundreds (perhaps thousands) of rules written and unwritten in Christianity and Islam.
At two, you don’t battle the perpetual guilt that has plagued me for the majority of my life. You weren’t born feeling guilty. Your mind and nervous system haven’t been programmed yet to feel ashamed for your inability keep all the hundreds of rules that the religious class can force feed an individual.
Imagine that. The diamond of your inner peace is currently in your own hand. You feel no fear of hell. You don’t feel like you deserve to be punished for being born. You have never felt any guilt for breaking a religious rule. You feel no need to spend hours confessing or sacrificing.
What’s that like?
Let me state something else without recantation or apology. Everything religious class dominators use to terrorize the identity and inner peace of a human being – their endless rules, dogmas, creeds, guilt, blame, shame, threats, condemnation, etc. – ALL OF THESE THINGS originate from outside the person.
ALL OF THEM.
Watching how free you are as a two-year-old confirms my bias. None of the fear, internal guilt, inadequacy, and condemnation that a person can feel from religious training originates inside a child. It all originates from outside the child and is programmed into them by religious class dominators. Almost none of it is nature. Almost all of it is nurture.
Every child is born free from this.
This is critical to understand for those of us adults seeking to reclaim our identity and inner peace. Those of us who had our precious diamonds stolen from us decades ago by religious class dominators.
ALL of this religious coercion must be learned. Again, a baby’s diamonds must be stolen soon after birth. Then as a toddler and young child their inner peace must be programmed and automated by the religious class dominator.
A religious “conscience” must be created. Fear and pain training are the surest way to burn into the child’s nervous system the fear-based triggers, conditioned cues, and programmed promptings that a religious dominator wants them to feel.
But the two-year-old you that I am observing in the writing of this, is currently free. The diamond of INNER PEACE is still in your left hand.
And the diamond of your IDENTITY is still in your right hand. At two, you don’t have a religious identity or affiliation. You haven’t been forced to identity as “Baptist,” “Jewish,” “Muslim,” “Hindu,” “Buddhist,” “Mormon,” “Catholic,” “Orthodox,” “Jehovah’s Witness,” “Atheist,” or “Agnostic.”
None of these terms mean anything to you. And you’re so happy. Ignorance is bliss. You are currently free from these things. You are still in possession of your two diamonds.
Before I move on, let me clarify one thing. Believe it or not, this book is not an anti-God or anti-religion book. It is a pro-human book. It is a pro-freedom book. It is an anti-coercion book. That being said, you must be prepared. Dominators in the form of the religious class are coming for your diamonds. And they will attempt to take them by force.
Second, as a two-year-old, I see someone with a mind almost entirely free from the fear of dominators in the form of the RULING CLASS. The government. As a toddler still in diapers, you are not political. You are not loyal to any one country, culture, party, or people group on earth.
You don’t know how to hate people different than yourself. You don’t have any sworn enemies. Those who look different. Those who think different. Those who talk different. Those who worship different. Those who live different.
At two, your mind is free from all this drama. You don’t know about a tiny percentage of our population who make up the ruling class. A small group of individuals who operate on the assumption that they have the right to “represent” and make choices for everyone else.
At two, you’re not aware that the ruling class gathers in important looking buildings and meeting rooms to design your life for you. You have no knowledge of any of the thousands of rules they have invented to control almost every miniscule detail of your life.
And at two, you don’t know how cruel the ruling class can be. These dominators believe they have the “right” to hurt you if you don’t submit to their domination.
To the ruling class, the worst “crime” on Earth is to resist their domination. It never occurs to them that the real crime is their domination. And if you resist their domination, they believe it is their “moral” duty to separate you from the love of family, the beauty of nature, and the adventure of life to be thrown into their cage for as long as they decide.
The cage of the ruling class, prison, is their ultimate weapon of fear. You must obey, submit to their domination in all points, or it’s the cage for you. The religious class uses hell. The ruling class uses the cell.
At two, neither one of these scare you.
But even in this “woke” age, ruling class dominators still love collecting the diamonds of identity and inner peace from the masses. And they even get the masses to pay for their own domination. The masses actually pay for their own slavery. Ruling class dominators force their dominated to give them money.
And what does the ruling class do with this money? Whatever they want. Primarily, they enter into their meeting rooms and conduct social engineering experiments on the dominated. They make rules for the dominated and call them “laws.” And they write down these rules on official looking paper.
Ruling class dominators then use these rules to justify using coercion against people. People who would rather have a free choice. Ruling class dominators force those under their domination to involuntarily submit to:
· the compulsory education (indoctrination) of their children · their healthcare decisions · military drafts and war, fighting for the dominators · resource stealing and terrorism of other countries · federal tax · state tax · county tax · city tax · property tax · sales tax · occupancy tax · tariffs · tolls · permits · licenses · inspections · punishment for profit schemes · confiscations · surveillance · prisons · police · lawyers · judges · juries · plea bargains · executions · extortion · and all forms of government coercion.
And all for “the greater good” of the dominated masses who “want” to be “represented” by these ruling class dominators. A tiny few who make the choices for a massive many. How ironic that the “collective good of all” is always determined by a chosen few.
And never forget, these elite ruling class dominators are not to be resisted or rebelled against. It’s a deadly thing to say “no” to the ruling class. In the 20th century alone, it is estimated that 100 million people were killed by their ruling class dominators. Not by disease. Not by war. But by direct execution at the hands of their “public servants.”
You’re two. You know nothing of this. None of this scares you. None of this robs you of inner peace. None of this burdens you down. You’re not frightened of their cage. You have never felt any guilt for breaking a rule invented by the ruling class. You have never felt stressed that these dominators will catch you doing something of which they disapprove or that they decided, apart from your consent, to make “illegal.”
And you are not looking for alcohol, drugs, or something else to give you temporary relief from this fear and oppressiveness. Your mind is almost completely free from this.
Again, what is that like? A mind free from the fear of dominators in the form of the ruling class.
Let me knowingly repeat myself. Almost verbatim.
All of the rules, indoctrination, coercive taxation, fines, imprisonments, guilt, threats, condemnation, criminalization, shame, etc. from ruling class dominators that terrorize the identity and the inner peace of a human being – ALL OF IT originates from outside a child.
ALL OF IT.
ALL the internal misery connected with one’s government indoctrination, originates from without. It does not originate from inside a child. It all originates from outside a child and is programmed into them.
Every child is born free from this.
ALL of this government coercion must be learned. A baby’s two diamonds must be stolen soon after birth. Then as a toddler and young child their inner peace must be programmed and automated by the ruling class dominators.
A civil “conscience” must be created. Again, fear and pain training are the surest way to burn into the child’s nervous system the fear-based triggers, conditioned cues, and programmed promptings that a ruling class dominator wants them to feel.
But the two-year-old you that I am currently observing, is free from the fear of ruling class dominators. The diamond of inner peace is still in your hand. It doesn’t belong to the ruling class.
Nor does the diamond of your identity. At two, you don’t identify as “American,” “British,” “Mexican,” “Chinese,” “Russian,” or “South African.” You don’t identity as “Republican,” “Democrat,” “Libertarian,” “Globalist,” “Nationalist,” “Liberal,” “Conservative,” “Left,” “Right,” “Socialist,” “Communist,” “Marxist,” or “Capitalist.” None of these terms mean anything to you.
And you are so happy. Ignorance is bliss. You are currently free from these things. Your diamonds are still in your own hands.
Let me make another clarification. This is not really an anti-government book. It is a pro-human book. It is a pro-freedom book. It is an anti-coercion book. But be prepared, ruling class dominators are coming for your diamonds. And they will attempt to take them by force.
Third, as a two-year-old, I see someone with a mind almost entirely free from the fear of dominators in the form of the RICH CLASS. And the rich class is arguably the most powerful class. The religious class and the ruling class will often sell their soul to them.
However, the rich class frequently is the religious class and/or the ruling class. In fact, sometimes it is difficult to differentiate between the religious, ruling, and rich classes. And which of the three evolved first in human history?
In some scenarios, the religious, ruling, and rich classes really are like the Christian Trinity. They are three, but they are one. They are an unholy trinity of power. They are the collective power class who rule over the powerless class. The dominators in a world of domination. The masters in a world of slaves.
In any scenario, the rich class are the humans who have the most “things.” Things such as land, houses, slaves, and money. They are rich in possessions. They are rich in power. Most are rich because they inherited their wealth from powerful parents. Some are rich because of hard work and ambition. No matter how they became rich, many are dependent upon them for survival which only tightens the chains of their slaves.
If we are honest, all of us have a way we want the world to be. We all believe we have ideas that could make Earth a better place. And if we are incredibly honest, we would remake the world in our image if we had the power and influence to do so.
Some do have this power. They are the rich class.
Monopoly is not just a board game. It is reality. The rich class dominators have designed a real-life Monopoly game that benefits themselves above all. Like the board game, you want to own. You don’t want to be owned. You want to be the lender. You don’t want to be the borrower. You don’t want to work for money. You want money to work for you – as you charge interest. You want to be the landlord. You don’t want to pay rent. You want to own the strip mall. You don’t want to sign a lease for an individual space.
On Earth, the real-life Monopoly board is controlled by the “I get to start life ahead,” rich class. And the game is rigged in their favor. The rich class dominators have created a “You must start life behind” world for everybody else.
These rich elites have deceived the dominated masses into believing that the way to get ahead in life, is to start way behind. The way to build a life to the sky is to first dig yourself a deep pit that you must climb out of.
A world of debt. A world of servitude. A world of slavery. A world of endless striving for “success.” To “dream big.” That one day you too can be a rich class dominator. One who has liberated yourself from the dominated, enslaved class.
And the rich class dominators have perfected their real-life Monopoly game. You must borrow from the rich class to rent or buy a house, making you a slave to your shelter.
Let me state that again. You are a slave to your shelter. Don’t read on until you let that sink in.
To pay off your slave debt to your shelter, you must work. In order to work, you must drive to work. In order to look respectable, you must drive a nice car. In order to afford a nice car, you must borrow more money from the rich class and create another slave debt. You must borrow from the rich class to secure a car to get to work. You are now a slave to your transportation.
To pay off your slave debt to your shelter and transportation, you must be sure your work pays you well. In order to get a good paying job, you must have impressive sounding credentials. In order to obtain these credentials, you must go to an impressive sounding university to confer impressive sounding credentials upon you. In order to afford the classes to obtain these credentials, you will need to borrow more money from the rich class. A lot more money. You are now the slave of your education.
It’s all so brilliantly designed, isn’t it? At least for the rich class dominators. This truly is real life Monopoly. Fun for the winner. Hell for the losers.
Forced to play in this elaborate game created by rich class dominators are real people. Real people born free. Real people born with the diamonds of identity and inner peace in their hands. Real people who quickly see how the game is played that has been designed for them by the rich and ruling classes.
To survive, out of self-preservation, and to be accepted, real people quickly dedicate their lives to “learn how the game is played.” They give the diamond of their identity to the rich class. They too aspire to be labeled and identified as “rich,” “famous,” “great,” “powerful,” and “successful.” They give their lives to play this game.
And while they are at it, real people also hand over the diamond of their inner peace to rich class dominators. And as a result, they live their lives constantly stressed and driven to win the game created by the wealthy.
Forced to play in this real-life Monopoly game, real people develop a tragically toxic mentality. The mentality of: “I must work 60 hours. I must sacrifice my family. I must take my children to daycare. I must pay my bills. I must pay my debts. I must look respectable. I must look successful. My house must look successful. My car must look successful. My wardrobe must look successful. My wife and children must look successful. Even my hobbies must look successful. And above all, my credentials, titles, and accomplishments must sound successful.” And it’s never enough. Real people who have sold their soul to rich class dominators carry the constant burden of debt, money-making, and a successful appearance. Their soul is constantly on edge.
Inner peace? Their soul is never at ease. The diamond of their inner peace has long since been given to the rich class. Just to sit at the table of the rich class dominator and to play in their game cost them dearly. They slid their two diamonds to the center of the table. And they were gone forever.
But you’re two. You still throw food from your highchair. You know nothing of this. You haven’t learned yet to identity yourself as rich or poor. You don’t view yourself as valuable or invaluable, worthy or unworthy based on: the house you live in, the car you drive, the clothes you wear, the phones and computers you use or don’t use, the university you attend or don’t attend, or the type of job you can secure.
At two, you’re not drowning in the sea of materialism and consuming in order to look successful and acceptable. And you feel no burden of debt. You may not own much. But currently you don’t owe anything. You are not currently playing the real-life Monopoly game designed by rich class dominators.
The diamonds of your identity and your inner peace are still in your hands. But be prepared, the rich class dominators are coming for them.
At 12, or whatever your present age, you no doubt have already felt some fear of dominators in the forms of these power classes – the religious, ruling, and rich classes.
And we haven’t even discussed the fear that can come from dominators in the forms of the practical classes. That is, your family, friends, schoolmates, neighbors, etc. That’s the vast majority of us in your everyday life who are not part of the power class. We also like power and control. We also – sometimes unknowingly – like to steal diamonds.
But as we’ve traveled in our time machine back to the two-year-old Hallie, she is free from this. She has a mind free from the fear of dominators in most all of these forms. She wasn’t born to be anyone’s slave.
AND NEITHER WERE YOU.
How do you feel free in a world of slavery? Step one is being awakened to the FACT that there was a time your mind was free. Regardless of how brief that moment of time was, you were free.
Let’s briefly recap.
You were born. You were born free. You were born with two diamonds in your hands. The diamond of the power of your identity was in your right hand. The diamond of the power of your inner peace was in your left hand. But “They,” thousands of individuals and groups, want to steal these diamonds from you. These dominators want you to be their slaves.
Which stimulates many, many questions.
· Why does the world you were born into work this way? · How did it get this way? · Why do so many on this planet believe you were born to be dominated by them? That you were born to be their slave? · What’s wrong with this world? · Why is it filled with coercion and slavery? · Why is it so crazy?
The answer to all these questions is exactly the same.
The world you were born into is nothing more than one, big dominance hierarchy.
I’m sure you must be saying within yourself something like, “Dad, I was following almost everything you’ve been saying…until now. A dominance hierarchy? I can barely pronounce it. You just sailed something about 20 feet above my head.”
Be patient. If you are to feel free in a world of slavery, you must know that, 1) there was a moment in time that you were free, and felt free, and 2) how and why Earth became a world of slavery – one, big dominance hierarchy.
Let me cut this massive steak of a dominance hierarchy into several smaller pieces so it’s more easily digestible for you. When you understand the concept of a dominance hierarchy, you’ll never see the world the same way again.
Next time: Chapter Five: What is a Dominance Hierarchy?
