Best selling author Orrin Woodward has released his most profound book 'And Justice For All' revealing his depth of insight about what challenges there are to the freedom of western civilization and how to preserve it. In addition LIFE Leadership strives to provide cutting edge information through its 'Freedom’ subscriptions where we can learn lessons of timeless principles. This combination of authors and audios are the most significant tools available for those who take the preservation of freedom seriously.
Problems and answers to those problems are revealed at a new level of depth in his book, 'And Justice For All'. Best selling author, Orrin Woodward describes three historical ways exploiters have plundered freedom from people:
- Plunder of Private Property
- Control of the Monetary System
Orrin writes about what most people inherently know. People, however, are not sure how to explain why they, their friends, their family, and members of their community are under financial stress from the economy. They don’t realize that they have become slaves to the monetary system. This has come about as exploiters have taken control of monetary policies. Orrin describes, “The central banking system’s centralized planning of the money supply by directly controlling the monetary system…” “The central banks create money out of thin air electronically, and this new money is then loaned to people who buy nonimaginary items such as cars, houses, and entertainments. In effect, the state has permitted the centralized banks to have the Five Laws of Decline (FLD) sweetheart of a deal of the millennium, since they receive interest on fake money that must be paid for by the real productive efforts of society’s members. Although the methods of exploitation are certainly less direct now than in the past, they are much more effective because they are less detectable.”
Control of the monetary system does not come about without most of our society’s citizens feeling powerless to make a difference. When studying the Cycles of Civilization we see that the progressive symptoms of a society in decline include: complacency, apathy, dependency, and bondage. Which one of those behaviors do you see prevailing throughout our society today? The media feeds the feeling of powerlessness. Noam Chomsky explained it, “It is possible to regiment the public mind every bit as much as an army regiments their bodies… These new techniques of regimentation of minds… We can do it now because we have these new techniques.” Orrin describes, “The number of corporations controlling the media dropped – from twenty – nine firms in 1987, twenty – three in 1990, and fourteen in 1992 to ten in 1997 and only six today! In other words, six corporations create, print, and deliver the “official” news that the US public consumes.”
“Gresham’s Law, to sum up, explains how and why independent thinkers have been driven from the political arena and replaced by obedient servants who follow party mandates.” “Interestingly, through controlling the political parties, media sources, and educational institutions, the state (with its cronies) has poured out copious amounts of monetary misinformation into society. The reason, of course, is to thoroughly confuse the exploited masses while discrediting those who detect the deceit.”
Why do I quote how Orrin describes how thoroughly the Five Laws of Decline have crept into our society and are subtly stealing our freedoms? Because, if we do not become aware and know how to respond, the FLD will steel not only our freedoms, but, the freedoms of our future generations. He does not leave us hanging as he describes two critical components of the Six Duties of Society (SDS) that are required to preserve freedom. In the forward of the book, constitutional specialist Dr. Gregory J. Brannon quotes Thomas Jefferson, “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” First we must recognize what was written in the ‘Declaration of Independence’, “All men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.” People are not ants!
Two qualities of the SDS that demonstrate our unalienable Rights are the ability to dream and the ability to distinguish our talents. These two qualities define what is missing in our society and if we accept responsibility we will restore our freedom. These are qualities that define a leader. The dream allows people to innovate and create. “They set goals, and make plans.” “Without dreams, people quickly lose hope for the future.” “Success begins with the end in mind.” Leadership expert John Maxwell writes about the dream:
- Dare to dream: Have a dream to do something bigger than yourself.
- Prepare the dream: Do your homework; be ready when the opportunity comes.
- Wear the dream: Do it.
- Share the dream: Make others a part of the dream, and it will become even greater than you had hoped.
Orrin writes about distinction, “Indeed, every society has distinctions, but if there are rewards for wrong behavior (“political means’ rather than “economic means’), the human spirit is damaged. Distinctions, then, must be based upon performance.”
The ultimate ability to dream and create distinction comes from two leadership qualities, character and courage. The ability to stand on one’s principles and the ability to have the courage to perform are what distinguish a leader’s influence.
Who do you know who is hurting financially as a result of financial manipulation or lack of financial intelligence? Who do know who is currently going through some type of relationship conflict? Who do you know who has given up hope? Who do you know who is living paycheck to paycheck or social security check to social security check? To answer these problems we must learn to think differently about the problems that we are facing. Most of all we must act on our new thinking. Instead of thinking about your rights and what you deserve, maybe it’s time to start thinking about your duty and the freedoms you must preserve. Next time you look into an infant’s eyes ask yourself what kind of world that will be left to the next generation? Will you have the character and courage to perform your duty to preserve those freedoms? God Bless, George Guzzardo
