But, in order to stand up for your rights, a person must be aware of exactly what those rights are!! And it is no accident that there is a "Plague of Ignorance" in the US regarding accurate information on both the civil rights of its citizens and the abuse of those rights by the US government!!! As George Carlin stated so eloquently in the first video clip on the About webpage, the US government has no intention of adequately eudcating its citizens to enable them to be capable of "critical thinking"!!
"Let the people think they govern, and they will be governed."
Accurate information is absolutely necessary to overcome the "Plague of Ignorance" - Ignorance is defined as "lack of experience or education" - about BOTH the rights and obligations of private citizens as well as the abuse of those rights by the government, its agencies and employees!!
So the first purpose of Dam Mad TV is provide ACCURATE information so that the citizens of the US can become informed and aware of exactly what their rights and obligations are..... And a related purpose is to provide ACCURATE information on how to stand up for those "universal human rights'!!!
First, I would like to present some quotations I have found online that take the image of opening the window and yelling "I am Dam Mad and won't take this shit any more" to the next part of this introduction to Dam Mad TV.com.
"The death of democrary is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference and undernourishment."
"The most important political office is that of the private citizen."
"It's every American's duty to support his government, but not necessarily in the style to which it has become accustomed."
"Evil flourishes when good men do nothing."
The point of all of the above quotations is that it is the responsibility of the private citizen(s) to exercise the inherent "Power of the People" to rein in the excesses and abuses of power by their government.
Here are a few more quotations that I think are relevent to this discussion -
"Democracy cannot flourish half rich and half poor, any more than it can flourish half free and half slave."
"For in reason, all government without the consent of the governed is the very definition of slavery."
”People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.”
When a government exceeds and abuses its power (as the US government has been doing for several decades!!!) it is necessary for the private citizens to act by whatever means are necessary to restore their government to one that acts in a responsible manner for the best interests of its citizens!!
The framers of the US Constitution said it best -
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
Which is the first half of the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence!!
A US citizen also has an obligation and responsibility to defend the US Constitution "against all enemies, foreign and domestic" and when the US government acts to curtail and restrict the very human rights it was created to protect it has acted as a domestic enemy of those civil rights!!!!!!
