I lost interest in the process in my mid-twenties because everything I learned, experienced, and witnessed caused me to conclude it's one giant corrupt game that people play to maintain power and status.
In 2006 (I was 26 at the time) I had an hour long conversation with my local magistrate because I was challenging the State on some issues pertaining to the right to travel. He listened intently to me and after an hour of giving him an education on my stance and why I was fighting them he looked me dead in the eyes and said "Look son, I know everything you are saying is true because I studied it myself in the 60's. But the simple fact-of-the-matter is; I sold my soul to feed my family." That is a direct quote which I will never forget. It floored me, at the time I didn't know how to respond. But it verified everything I had learned to that point. Which is; these men in power know what they are doing, they are not honest, they are not working for the people, they do enough to keep us placated and comfortable so we don't revolt, but they have ALL made a conscience decision to serve something they know is not good.
I've also had conversations with many judges, and State Attorney's -- who all act like children when I confront them with what I know. I've been held in contempt of court 3 times and not spent a day in jail for any of them because the Judges know I'm right and feel ashamed. I've walked out of court a free man within an hour all there times I've been held in contempt. The last time I was in court in 2015 the Judge wouldn't even look me in the eye when I was speaking to him, but, like a child, he stared at the ground the whole time because his shame would not allow him to look me in the eye.
Anyway, I could write a book about this stuff easily since I've devoted 20 years of my life to intense study trying to learn how this world works. I've face the beast head on and found it to be a coward and full of shame because it knows it's wrong.
