Characteristics Of A Vigilant Citizen

In this article I talked about characteristics of a social zombie, now I’ll be talking about the characteristics of an awaken vigilant citizen.  

While social zombies waste their lives in front of television screens, shielding themselves from waking up to the world around them – vigilant citizens live a multi-dimensional, fulfilling life.  The following are main characteristics of an enlightened individual:

Knowledge Is Power: Vigilant citizens arm themselves with knowledge as opposed to useless information.  They participate in intellectual discussion, study history, and learn about the establishment power structure.  Furthermore, vigilant citizens meticulously analyze their food intake by regularly questioning preservatives, unknown ingredients, and GMOs.

Division Of Time: An important characteristic of an enlightened individual is their division of time.  They divide leisure with learning, enjoying nature, exercising, and absorbing entertainment in a healthy manner.  They are not constantly sedated by meaningless reality TV and instead moderate their screen time to normal levels.  Those who are woken up understand the value of nature, and set aside time to marvel at God’s creation.

Legitimate Heroes: Vigilant citizens honor those who paved the way for their freedoms, while celebrating those who defended them through the years.  From the founding fathers, who broke free from British shackles and founded our nation, to patriots like Edward Snowden who sacrificed freedom to expose criminal elements of the establishment.  Instead of praising celebrities who aid in lowering the collective IQ of society, positive influences are lauded as role models.

Questioning Government: Perhaps the most apparent characteristic of a vigilant citizen is the willingness to question government and reject nonsensical conjecture.  Whether its, 9/11, JFK’s assassination, globalization, or GMOs – awaken individuals study facts then form conclusions based on truth.  They resist globalist tyranny, defend the constitution, expose hypocrisy, and prepare for what Ron Paul has dubbed the inevitable “day of reckoning”.

Eyes Open: Vigilant citizens have woken up and paid close attention to important world issues.  They read about government, its actions, and how to aid in spreading a message of liberty throughout their social spheres.  Vigilant citizens truly care about the future of America.

Focus On Issues That Matter: True enlightened individuals spend less time debating the sexism of air conditioners and more time discussing issues that matter.  Whether its immigration, the economy, unconstitutional spying, trade deals, gun rights or foreign affairs – these individuals concern themselves with impactful subject matter as opposed to politically correct nonsense.

Resistance To Divide And Conquer: Vigilant citizens transcend the left/right paradigm and resist establishment “divide and conquer” tactics by uniting as a society.  They do not participate in race baiting, and do not view the population as a collection of tribal groups.  Awaken individuals are knowledgeable about the importance of resisting division.

Overall, vigilant citizens evenly distribute their time between exercising the body and brain.  In addition, they pay close attention to important global events while holding their government’s feet to the fire.  Most importantly, they question everything instead of naively accepting political rhetoric.

The above characteristics are critical components to the enlightenment process, which requires a concentrated effort to improve oneself and habitually think outside the box.
