Our Vision of Moral Courage – James O’Keefe – Project Veritas

“The person who defies the crowd stands up as a solitary individual, shuns the intoxicating embrace of comradeship, and is disobedient to authority, even at the risk of his or her life, for a higher principle. And with moral courage comes prosecution.”

There are two reasons for this:

The challenge of moral courage is that conformity is valued over disruption. People are willing to give up their lives for a cause, but not their reputation.
The risks of investigative journalism—a historically revered method of information gathering became unprofitable for the news networks, so they stopped doing it.
Moral courage is personally costly because of its disruptive nature. Institutions, especially the state, despise and fight against disruption. For our rulers, politics are public relations.

According to Hedges, the moral courage required for speaking the truth “is always defined by the state as treason. … Criticisms, however tepid, are treated as acts of subversion.”

The state will attempt to re-exert its control through fear: “This fear and loss of spontaneity keep a population traumatized and immobilized and turn the courts, along with legislative bodies, into mechanisms that legalize the crimes of the state.”

In other words, fear is paralyzing people and preventing them from fighting for America.

      1. Maybe you are sarcastic at Green Road Journal. Articles about Karl Rove being a sleeze then Brietbart-Rove. Protege O’Keefe do not make sense. It is hard to tell, anymore. Things do not make sense. I read and hear things in media, and on the internet that are so crazy! James O’Keefe is a monied guy., who has done illegal things. he has hurt innocent people f.or the thrilland effect. Why do people get a kick out of such cruelty?
