What shall the harvest be?

"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed, it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." Genesis 3:15

"...any system that authorizes and empowers one class to take from another class the fruits of their labor and talents without an equivalent is practical slavery. I care not what it is called. When you deprive a man of the enjoyment of the fruits of his labor and talents, there is no other right he can long maintain." Rep. Kuykendall, January 18, 1867

Read and listen to the Farewell Address of Dwight D. Eisenhower which he gave on January 17, 1961. This was when he warned the people of the danger of the newly formed Military-Industrial Complex. Over 40 years later, this entity is far more powerful than it was back then. Eisenhower was the Commander-in-Chief of the Allied forces in Europe during World War II, and President of the United States from 1952 - 1960.

Read the book The Life and Times of Frederick Douglass from 1882. What better wat to learn about slavery than to read the experience of someone who was a slave. The arguments of the pre Civil War slaveholders have been digitalized by Google. Study Cotton is King and Pro-Slavery Arguments to understand pro slavery thinking. It's alive and well today.

"And it puts under compulsion all persons, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the slaves, that they should give these a mark in their right hand or upon their forehead, and that nobody might be able to buy or sell except a person having the mark, the name of the wild beast or the number of its name." Revelation 13:16,17

For those who don't recognize the former president in the cartoon, it is Franklin D. Roosevelt (1933-1945). When he signed the Social Security Act of 1935 into law, less than 3% of the people in America paid income tax. The income tax, which began in 1913 with the 16th amendment, didn't tax the wages of working people until after this law. The tax started at 1% of wages in 1937. Today it is not uncommon to see wage taxation and garnishment take 65% or more of a worker's labor (wages) from him. In hindsight, President Roosevelt and his New Deal supporters sold posterity down river by trapping them into a process of increasing servitude. A few who lived back then foresaw this danger. After looking at the cartoon above from 2005, consider two cartoons from 1936 by Herbert Johnson below. Remember, the cartoons below were drawn when no income tax was imposed upon the wages of working people.

Income taxation had it's roots with the Civil War. Read "The Civil War and The Roots of Income Taxation: 1861-62."

Are some semblance of the old "black laws" coming back? Read "Selected Quotes from the 39th Congress, 1865-66."

The best way to study history is to read what was happening during the period of history in question. To read old weekly press articles from 1913 - 1942, go to Old Weekly Press Table of Contents. A 1913 article entitled "The Income Tax" by congressman Benton McMillin is of special importance since it proves that the income tax was never intended to tax the money you were paid for your labor, which is usually in the form of wages. Legal and historical research shows that the new slave beast was born from the womb of deceit and with great violence to the Constitution during the 1930's when America got it's "New Deal." Links to old articles and editorials will educate you about the period known as the "New Deal." The American system of government of the early 21st century had its roots during the "New Deal" time period. Teaching people that our system of government was born in 1787 when the Constitution was framed is a lie. The "New Deal," with the overwhelming support of the vast majority of the people, destroyed constitutional government back in the 1930's and replaced that system of government with a system of labor Cannibalism that exercises unlimited and unrestrained power over the people. Once again we see that the vast majority of people prefer the security of servitude over liberty. The critical thing to remember in studying this old press is the fact that American workers paid no income tax before 1937.

You may also find the Fireside Chats of Franklin D. Roosevelt interesting to read in which he decieved the people by saying that everything being done in connection with the New Deal "was constitutional and in keeping with the past American tradition." (Chat #2, May 7, 1933) The Supreme Court, two years later, unanimously ruled that the process was unconstitutional. (A.L.A. Schechter Poultry Corp. v. U.S., 295 US 495)
