A Complete Guide to Being a Thought Criminal

Waking up is a painful process, and once awake, you begin to see the world for what it is. It’s shocking how much everything begins to look like a movie set made entirely of cheap facades lacking any real depth. You recognize the current system of consumerism is unsustainable and you want to know how you can stop what you know is coming one day. 

Even though nothing you do to prepare or fight back is illegal, you find yourself feeling like you are in the midst of a conspiracy against the powers that be. That’s because you are. Rebellion isn’t done with bullets and bombs anymore; it’s done within the confines of your own mind. When you wake up, you essentially become a thought criminal, never really knowing who you can talk to about your thoughts.

Opening your eyes is a vexatious experience because you finally realize that everything you've been taught about life and the way things are has been conditioning you for a life of debt slavery and obedience to The Corporation.  - Me

“The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off.”

“People whose governing habit is the relinquishment of power, competence, and responsibility, make excellent spenders. They are the ideal consumers. By inducing in them little panics of boredom, powerlessness, sexual failure, mortality, paranoia, they can be made to buy virtually anything that is “attractively packaged.” 

- Wendell Berry from The Unsettling of America
