Pattern Recognition Part III: On The Recent Revelation That The US Government is Compiling All of Our Telephone Records

Posted on: June 18, 2013

A while back I added to this blog a favorable recommendation for a book written by Charles Adams titled Those Dirty Rotten Taxes, The TAX REVOLTS that BUILT AMERICA.

I wanted to include here an excerpt from the book where Mr. Adams quotes Lao Tsu, the revered founder of Taoism (A Chinese philosophy and system of religion). In the quote we may see one unspoken reason for the government’s implementation of the blanket search of all of our communications using the NSA (National Security Agency).

Mr. Adams quites Lao Tsu:

“The more one governs, the less one achieves the desired result….The more restrictions and prohibitions there are in the world, the poorer the people will be….The more laws are promulgated, the more thieves and bandits there will be.

When taxes are too high, people go hungry.
When government is too intrusive, people lose their spirit.
Act in the people’s benefit. Trust them, leave them alone.”

I placed the crucial part of the quote in bold letters in order to provide what may be the justification for such massive and intrusive spying on the American public by our own government other than the stated goal of preventing acts of terrorism, which has always been the responsibility of our government, even prior to 9/11. Perhaps the real reason the government is spying so thoroughly on the public is due to the desire to tap the spirit of the citizen so that the citizen will accept any type of governmental behavior.
