Over the years people will sometimes ask me "who are 'they' David?".
Its put to me with a tone as if they are implying there is no "they", its only something imagined in your mind. It reminds me of the way some spiritual types of people will say everything is part of us, where we perceive 'evil' and forces of darkness, be it human or otherwise, we are really just dealing with our own darkness. For example, when the idea of reptilian hybrids controlling humanity comes up some people feel that concept is just too far out to realistically consider, so they will rationalise it by saying there is no such thing, its simply our own darkness creating an 'enemy' out there in the form of an alien race. Yet those same people would never claim their beloved son or daughter or family member is an illusion within themselves and has no reality of its own outside of them. I don't see the difference. Either the whole world and everything you perceive is an illusion happening within you or you must acknowledge everything in existence has a realness to it that exists independently of you. I would say, can't it be both simultaneously?
To come back to who are "they"?
Anybody in doubt of "they" only has to ask themselves is this really a free world? Do I really have free choice and can do what I want? If I want to go to certain parts of the Earth I have to acknowledge these imaginary, man-made borders called countries and must abide by the rules of each one to be allowed to walk on that piece of land. Why is this so? Because I have not taken it upon myself to enforce such authority? I can't just decide to enforce such a rule. When a new Tesco is put up somewhere, do I have any real say in that? If I feel like selling some stuff somewhere can I just go ahead and do it? Why must we pay taxes to exist on this planet? Who is deciding this is so? Because I didn't come into this world and think to myself at some point "I know! I'm gonna charge people for living here on this planet". So if that idea didn't come to me, why is it coming to anybody else and more importantly, how are they getting the authority to put it into practice?
So anybody denying the existence of "they" is clearly completely naive or just stupid. You can dress it up how you like, pretend they don't exist and you have complete control of your life, can do what you like when you like, but you'd only be lying to yourself. Until the day I can move upon this Earth wherever I like whenever I like, have as much right to the land and sea as anybody else, as much right to Nature, the fruits of the land, as anyone else then it cannot be denied there is a "they".
The truth is "they" have stolen what belongs innately to us all and made us feel they are giving something to us by loaning it back in various ways. They have created a police system to protect what they have stolen from us all and convinced us its there to protect us. They have created a health system which seems hell-bent on separating us from Nature and getting us at war with our own Nature, convincing us we're sick and that they are there with the solutions to protect our health.
So who are "they"?
Well, that they exist can't be denied but maybe its time we found out once and for all.
