Freedom Force International
About our Symbol

Freedom Force International is a network of men and women from all parts of the world who are concerned over loss of personal liberty and expansion of government power. They are not mere complainers. They have a plan to do something about it. They also share a common belief in The Creed of Freedom, which is a statement of principles that guide them in their mission to build a better world.

Totalitarianism is on the rise everywhere because advocates of big government have taken leadership control of the power centers within every society. Power centers are organizations and social groupings – such as political parties, labor unions, church groups, media centers, and professional societies – that hold political power based on their claim to represent their members and on their ability to lead public opinion. It has taken many years for them to achieve this dominance over society, but they have succeeded. It does no good to complain or to theorize about what should be done. As long as advocates of big government hold the power, nothing will change.

WE MUST NOT BE LIKE CATS
One of the most profound differences between dogs and cats is that cats focus on effects while dogs focus on causes. If you toss a pebble at a cat, it will look at the pebble. If you toss it at a dog, it will look at you.

In this respect, too many people are like cats. They are preoccupied with the details of their loss of security, freedom, and privacy, and they flutter like wing-clipped pigeons, complaining about this and that without knowing why these things are happening. By contrast, members of Freedom Force focus on the cause and work to eliminate it. The degeneration of civilization is not the result of blind forces of history operating beyond comprehension or control. It is planned and caused by a small but well defined group of people who believe this decline is necessary for what they fondly call The New World Order but which we recognize as high-tech feudalism in which mankind will be condemned to live in perpetual subservience to elitist rulers.

The identities of these elitists are known. They have names. They belong to organizations. They meet together to create strategies and they work jointly to implement them. They dominate the power centers of society. We will not escape their plans by looking only at what they are doing. We must focus on them and remove them from their present positions of power. Any other plan of action is doomed to failure.

That, however, is not enough. If we focus solely on the identities and personalities of those who are promoting the decline of liberty, we will be stumped by the fact that, even if we should succeed in removing them from their positions of influence, there are many more just like them waiting to step into their places. In the final analysis, it’s not the names and identities or political party affiliations of these individuals that matters as much as what they believe, what ideology they hold. Their ideology has a name. It’s called collectivism, a concept that government is master and people must obey. It’s to no avail to remove one collectivist from power only to replace him with another one – which has been the pattern for all too many years. It is time to stop acting like cats, stop being forever fascinated by the personalities and deeds of our leaders. We must be more like dogs and focus on the ideology of our leaders, because that is the cause of their deeds.

The solution is simple. It is to take back control of the power centers of society, one-by-one, just the way they were captured in the first place. Replace the collectivists with people who have no personal agendas except to defend freedom. This will unleash the vast human potential for prosperity and happiness that can be realized only in the absence of government oppression. However, to reach that goal, it will be necessary for those who cherish freedom to do more than complain and far more than just casting a vote every few years. They must reach for power. That is the reason for the motto of Freedom Force: Impotentes defendere libertatem non possunt, which is Latin for “Those without power cannot defend freedom.”

The Freedom Force strategy can be summarized as:
Don't fight city hall when you can BE city hall.

The mission of members of Freedom Force is to shape public policy within their respective countries in favor of personal and global freedom. The method is threefold: (1) dissemination of ideological and issue-related information, (2) instruction in how to become influential within community and national organizations, and (3) instruction in how to lawfully and constitutionally convert that influence into public policy. Members seek to become change agents so they truly can make a difference in the world.

Freedom Force is a global brotherhood of the most enlightened and dedicated people in the world. We are building an international network of leaders who, in spite of differences in nationality and culture, are in solidarity with the principles expressed in The Creed of Freedom. We now have members in sixty countries, and the number continues to grow. (See flags below.) Nothing like this has happened before in history. It is a powerful force that cannot be stopped. Welcome to the Brotherhood of Freedom.



Freedom Force came into existence at a meeting on December 12, 2002, in the Dominican Republic where G. Edward Griffin was a speaker at an off-shore investment conference. After the conference, he invited anyone who was interested to attend a private presentation of what he thought would be needed to regain control of our lives and our freedom. About thirty people attended; and, after the presentation, just about everyone enrolled on the spot, including citizens from three countries. Freedom Force International was born.

Although we suddenly had dues-paying members, we were far from being an organization. We had no staff, no facilities, no operational procedures, no bylaws, no accounting system, no means of communicating with members, no web site, no checking account, no code of conduct, no money (except about $200 in donations), and not the foggiest idea of how to proceed.

The next two years were spent primarily getting all of those things in order. We weren’t ready for expansion until about 2005 when our web site finally began to take shape. This gave us global outreach and made it possible for people of like mind anywhere in the world to find us simply by surfing the Internet. Slowly but surely, our membership began to climb; and we added increasing numbers of flags representing countries where members resided. We believe strongly that a successful movement for liberty in today’s world must be international in scope, and it was gratifying to see that aspect of our strategy become a reality right from the beginning.

We have a long way to go before we can fulfill the grand vision shared by our founding members in 2002, but we also have come a long way since then. Although the size of our membership is the only secret we have, we now count them in the thousands – and the number is growing constantly. More important than numbers, however, is the quality of our membership and the leadership they provide. The most prominent among them are featured in the Freedom Force Hall of Honor (featured elsewhere on this page), but that is just the tip of the iceberg. All of our members are influential within their communities and are helping to create a leadership network that will counter and eventually defeat the collectivists who now dominate the power centers of society.

Eventually, there will be training and communication centers in many parts of the world. At present, the headquarters is located in Southern California. Inquiries should be sent to info@freedom-force.org

If this is your first visit to our web site, you may feel overpowered by the volume of information here, but do not be discouraged by that. This site is not intended to be read all at one time, although occasionally that does happen. It is designed to present the most important topics first and then offer convenient paths to secondary topics and current events. Information is updated daily, and we hope you will make it a habit to return often.

During your first visit, we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the series of essays entitled The Future is Calling. This will introduce you to the core beliefs of Freedom Force. Everything else is built upon this, and it will be difficult to understand our perspectives on other issues without this background. To go directly to these essays, click here.
