This video explains how our freedom was taken from us and how we can get it back. “Slavery never died. It just evolved,” says one YouTube commenter in response to this revolutionary and eye-opening video about the human race and the power of the government. “The Story of Your Enslavement” is a powerful video that traces the origins of power and how we as a people came to be controlled on levels that are unrecognizable.
The video starts off by explaining that our initial method of controlling other humans began when we became afraid of death, injury, and pain. Not only did we become controllable at just the threat of death, but we became valuable resources to those seeking to gain power and exploit other humans. The narrator says, “The greatest resource for any human being to control is not natural resources or tools or animals or land, but other human beings.” Thus began the average person’s exploitation. Our enslavement travels and evolves throughout time, as the video explains, and has seen many different phases of evolution. Throughout the video, this control over humans is described in the form of a metaphor between farmers, which are big governments, billionaires, and those on their payrolls, and livestock, which is every average human being paying into the corrupt system. The narrator calls this phenomenon that has spanned thousands of years “Human Farming.” They go on further to state that, “Some people get confused because governments provide healthcare and education and roads, and thus imagine that there is some ‘benevolence’ at work. Nothing could be farther from the reality. Farmers provide healthcare and irrigation and training to their livestock.” This video even delves into why it seems that citizens have liberties and that the government is protecting them.
Don’t be fooled by these “freedoms,” says the video, because farmers allow livestock certain liberties if it will increase productivity and, ultimately, the wealth of the farmer by way of taxes. “Your few freedoms are preserved because they are profitable to your owners,” the narrator claims. Although it may seem radical, watch the video below at least once to get an idea of what the foundations of this metaphor are and make a decision for yourself. Perhaps the farming metaphor doesn’t appeal to everyone, but the underlying idea of ownership, government, and the facade of freedom is what needs to be taken from this video and examined for its validity .
