The original impetus I had for becoming a student of Dr. Ed Rivera arose within me very shortly after a local small farm had closed it's "gates" after succumbing to legal actions against it by the State of California. I intuitively knew there was help that could possibly be extended to the farmer however I did not have the clarity of understanding that I needed back then as to what the "help" consisted of and therefor I also knew that I needed to obtain that clarity before I could offer any real help.
Since then I have offered "comments" at a number of blogs devoted to 'Food Freedom'. However, now after a few years of doing that I'm realizing that people have deep beliefs (or strong opinions) about government and about their relationship to government and that these beliefs most often severely limit (read "box in") the individual's thinking to the point that "freedom" is not possible for them! This condition makes me wonder if individuals have to experience a total loss of freedom to see the anti-freedom nature of their beliefs?
Case in point - I posted a comment with reference to the Organic Laws at the Real Milk Campaign site and then copied the foundation and its founder on that. The founder responded saying "the problem is that the governments operate by maritime law". I didn't know how to positively respond to that statement. In any case I am having difficulty in seeing an essential interest (in that response) for learning the Organic Laws (let alone how understanding the limited government jurisdiction is the "cure" when encountering the misapplication of maritime law). Maybe you would agree that there has to be the interest to share this understanding.
I am most grateful for the light I've received by being a student of Dr. Ed Rivera! And now, more than ever, I'd like to see this "light" intensified!
