I gotta admit. Reading about the history and political structures of a bunch of Pacific Island nations last night gave me a broader perspective on the subject. Many of the smaller ones have a responsive small government of their own and are considered to be independent nations, but they really are no more than satellite nations of the UN under US control accepting welfare. So long as the illusion of freedom of choice remains in the minds of consenting populace, nothing will change anywhere. There is nowhere to run to anymore to escape it. Freedom begins in your own heart and mind, not in some administrative bureaucracy. The only real way to be free is to vacate.
