Oliver Demille, author of FreedomShift and LeaderShift - explains that, approximately every century, a nation makes a shift -
either toward freedom, or toward force.
In 1776 we had a Freedom Shift in America.
In 1913-1936 we experienced a Force Shift with the implementation
of the Federal income tax, the Federal Reserve, the change in the election of Senators
and finally the redefinition of the general welfare clause.
DeMille has studied nations and history over the last 3,000 years
and says we’re in line for a coming shift — a world-scale shift -
rather than just a national one, due to the increasing global nature
of our technological society.
Will we experience a force shift or a Freedom Shift?
The momentum, DeMille claims, is toward a force shift.
But he also shares that there’s much hope for a FreedomShift.
In any shift, 95-97% of the people are not even involved.
They simply don’t care. This leaves 3-5% of the populace
to make things happen, and that number is split between
the people wanting more force and those wanting more freedom.
So, in essence, if we want a Freedom Shift,
we only need to comprise about 2.5% of the population.
Seems doable — especially with the rising interest in Liberty
in this country.
DeMille shares that three important choices must be made by 2.5%
of the population in order to insure a freedom shift.
1) We need more entrepreneurs.
Historically nations with a solid base of entrepreneurs experience freedom.
Or if force is imposed on them, it doesn’t last long. Entrepreneurship
and Slavery do not co-exist.
2) We need more voracious readers and independent thinkers
who get involved in the fight for freedom. You can’t be a nation of sheep
believing everything you see in the media or read in tabloids and be free for long.
People who read voraciously tend to think more independently and thus value freedom more.
3) We need more tribal leaders.
A tribal leader is someone who leads other people with similar interests.
But tribes go beyond interests and niches. DeMille explains,
“When your relationships with one person or more in a given niche
reach the point that you deeply care about these people, and they about you,
you are part of a new tribe.” (FreedomShift)
In FreedomShift, DeMille does not throw his support
toward any candidate, party or ideology.
Join Julie Ann and Oliver, as he gives a clear overview
of the various players and how we can more proactively work together
for a FreedomShift this time around.
