The Artificial Womb
From the time a person leaves its mother's womb, its every effort is
directed towards building, maintaining, and withdrawing into
artificial wombs, various sorts of substitute protective devices or
The objective of these artificial wombs is to provide a stable
environment for both stable and unstable activity; to provide a
shelter for the evolutionary processes of growth and maturity -
i.e., survival; to provide security for freedom and to provide
defensive protection for offensive activity.
This is equally true of both the general public and the elite.
However, there is a definite difference in the way each of these
classes go about the solution of problems.
Again, most people want to be free to do the things (to explore,
etc.) but they are afraid to fail.
The fear of failure is manifested in irresponsibility, and
especially in delegating those personal responsibilities to others
where success is uncertain or carries possible or created
liabilities (law) which the person is not prepared to accept. They
want authority (root word - "author"), but they will not accept
responsibility or liability.
So they hire politicians to face

The people hire the politicians so that the people can:
obtain security without managing it.
obtain action without thinking about it.

avoid responsibility for their own intentions.
obtain the benefits of reality and science without exerting
themselves in the discipline of facing or learning either of these

prevent encroachment of anything upon the nation/womb.
destroy the enemy who threatens the nation/womb.
destroy those citizens of their own country who do not conform for
the sake of stability of the nation/womb.
Politicians hold many quasi-military jobs, the lowest being the
police which are soldiers, the attorneys and C.P.A.s next who are
spies and saboteurs (licensed), and the judges who shout orders and
run the closed union military shop for whatever the market will
The generals are industrialists. The presidential" level of

people know that they have created this farce and financed it with
their own taxes (consent), but they would rather knuckle under than
be the hypocrite. Thus, a nation becomes divided into two very
distinct parts, a docile sub-nation [great silent majority] and a
The political sub-nation remains attached to
the docile sub-nation, tolerates it, and leaches its substance until
it grows strong enough to detach itself and then devour its parent.
