Why Some People Will Always Bow to Tyrants
Joshua Krause
The Daily Sheeple

As America continues to descend into a vicious police state, many have wondered how it all came to this. The easiest answer to that question, is that we let it happen. No matter how brutal a regime may be, tyrants never come to power unless they gain the approval, or at least the indifferent consent of their people.

So the real question is, how come so many people seem absolutely complacent in the face of our crumbling cultural values, and the steady march of tyranny? Even worse, how can so many people revel in it? It seems like the number of people who truly value freedom are severely outnumbered by idiots and power tripping busybodies. Granted, the number of people who want to be free has grown in recent years, but they’re still few and far between when compared to the glut of grovelling masses that we share the world with.

Here’s the awful answer to that question, and the dirty truth that most people can’t bring themselves to admit to. Most people love freedom, but only as an idea. They like the idea that they can do whatever they want, they admire the archetype of the rugged individualist, and everyone loves underdogs and rebels. In other words, people love the banners and symbols of freedom, but do they love freedom in practice?

I would argue that no, many of them don’t. As strange as it may sound, most people really struggle with having freedom. Let me provide an example, of which there are many in the field of marketing.

In the year 2000, two psychologists conducted a study on how the number of choices we have effects our behavior. They went to a supermarket and displayed 24 different gourmet jams on a table, and provided $1 coupons to see how much interest it garnered. They did the same thing the next day, but instead of 24 jams, there were only 6. The large display attracted much more interest, but the small display generated 10 times as many sales.

Maybe you think that study is inconsequential, and I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that, but let me share another case that will clarify my point. One of the psychologists who conducted that study, did another study on the differences between end of life care in the United States and France.She interviewed parents in both countries who had children on life support. In France, the doctor makes the decision as to whether or not a child is taken off life support, and in the United States it is the parent’s decision.

She talked to these parents a year after their children had died. The American parents were much more distraught over their decision to pull the plug. They still had nagging doubts about whether it was the right decision to make, and they felt like they had “executed” their children. The French parents on the other hand, didn’t feel nearly as bad about the situation. They were well on their way to coping with the tragedy.

The point I’m trying to make here is that most people don’t like having choices, despite how much they’ll argue to the contrary. The more choices they’re given, the more likely they are to not like the choices they have or make. There’s much more doubt about whether or not that choice was correct, which leads to some pretty counter-intuitive conclusions. You can measure how free you are by the number of choices you have, and most people claim to love freedom, but in many cases those people are happier when they have fewer, or no choices. I think most people are simply happier without freedom, which is unfortunate and sad to say the least.

And that is why so many people accept tyranny, and why it will always be a problem for the human race. Because tyranny is so much easier than freedom. It is acquiescence. It means giving up. Tyranny is for quitters, and it amounts to handing over the reins to someone else. Most people are happier when they don’t have a choice, and they don’t even realize it.

However, there is another way to look at this odd human behavior.

There was another interesting fact that was gleaned from that study. The American parents who had chosen to take their sick children off life support, still regretted their decision. But when asked if they would have had it any other way, most of them claimed that they would have still made the same decision. Their decision made them unhappy, they knew it made them unhappy, but when they were asked if they would have rather let the doctor make that choice, they all said no.

And that right there is an example of people who truly want freedom, and not just the rosy idea of freedom. Those who truly want freedom are willing to accept the painful struggle of having a choice in life, and prefer it to the ignorant bliss that comes with not having a choice. However, it was only applicable to that particular situation. Would those same parents prefer to have a choice in every other aspect of their lives?

Unfortunately, that kind of person is a rare bird these days. If you could ask everyone in the world about their ethics and political beliefs, you’d probably find a wide variety, but most of them would have one thing in common. There’s always some part of their lives that they are willing to relinquish to a “higher authority,” and that part differs depending on their ideology. Most people don’t really want the full freedom package.

So it’s up to the rare few who really want freedom, without compromise, to make it a reality for themselves. The human race will always teeter on the edge of a tyrannical abyss, because there is an inherent weakness in our species. We’re happier when we don’t have so many choices (or freedom), which means that accepting tyranny is easy for us. It takes all our strength and moral fiber to rise above it, because we default towards tyranny (which is defined by the lack of choice in our lives) when we stop caring. It’s our natural inclination.

Just as human weakness and apathy leads to ignorance, violence, and hatred, it also destroys freedom. And the political and financial elitists of the world want you to give in to your weaknesses, and fall back on those baser instincts. They want you to give up. They want you to yearn for a simple life, where your choices are taken care of by someone else. They want you to be a slave.

But do you really want that? Do you have the strength to make that choice?

Excellent article. "The heart is full of deceit and desperately WEAK above all else, who can know it"? (Jeremiah 17:9). This is the Beast Within each one of us (Ecclesiastes 3:18), which God has placed there for us to OVERCOME. And we all will, eventually, overcome this beast. For the vast majority, this overcoming will happen in the spiritually purifying lake of fire. And after all is said and done, everyone will rejoice (Luke 2:10, 1 Timothy 4:9-11, and hundreds of other verses which proclaim the good news). Glory to the Lord!

Your insane idea of god is unworthy of civilized people to accept. Your god is a murdering tyrant invented by the mass murderers Moses and Joshua.
You live in the stone age. You are not fit for nor do you desire the responsibility of civilian government. Religion is the opiate of the masses used by tyrants to enslave humanity.

Easy there Gunny. The methods utilized by different individuals to understand and relate to a given topic makes them no less fit for responsible community.
Granted, the god referred to by Rhino is a despicable character in-deed. By one's deeds you will know that person. A loving god would never do what has been attributed his position. That is a non loving controller, slaver, overlord, none of which I would choose. But, that is who is currently holding that chair. We just have to pay no respect, response, or regard for that thing.
Over and out.

The "inherent weakness in our species" that causes
us to dread freedom is created by a poisoning agenda from our Black Nobility
hidden rulers. Through vaccines, fluoride and GMOs the public is chemically handicapped and made anxious, fearful and depressed through toxic injury.

This creates a blind allegiance to a perceived safe haven called the Establishment. Fearful, sick and anxious people have little appetite for freedom, hard decisions and even facing disturbing truths – particularly truths that expose their Establishment
savior and safe-haven as their real enemy that disabled their independence and

The Black Nobility using their Masonic/Shriner, Zionist and
Jesuit agents have took over the control of America in the 1913 Fed Act and has
since controlled our money, news, movies, education, medicine, food, water,
politics and consciousness.

The sheeple are mind-controlled through toxic injury and now represent obstacles to reform that serve the enemy. The masses have been made weak, toxic and timid because of toxic injury by our hidden rulers.

Get the word out to expose and fight these bastards. The toxically injured and captured are going to fight, belittle and immediately dismiss this message.

Excellent comment.
I've been searching for someone who could make this important yet subtle distinction.
We are NOT in a normal environment thus any decisions that we make must take account of the WAR that we are all facing.
We are being assaulted on so many fronts:
Politically, Chemically, Medically, Environmentally, Psychologically, Emotionally, Physically, Financially and most especially Spiritually.

Majority of Americans (all ages) would bow to tyrants even if families got separated in FEMA camps, never to be seen again, all property taken, etc. I'm a retiree and it amazes me year after year how dumbed down people are incl my peers. Most know nothing about what these blog sites discuss and expose in gov. Many are TV zombies. I have few friends because the ones I know cannot have dead air between the ears. Folks, ditch air headed duds and get in a survival mode, unload clutter and useless stuff incl people

…17I said to myself, "God will judge both the righteous man and the wicked man," for a time for every matter and for every deed is there. 18I said to myself concerning the sons of men, "God has surely tested them in order for them to see that they are but beasts."

19 For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same. As one dies so dies the other; indeed, they all have the same breath and there is no advantage for man over beast, for all is vanity.…
