Those who value freedom regardless of risk or pain, and those who value slavery in a desperate bid to avoid risk and pain. When I consider the ultimate folly of man, in the end I look to the meek and unquestioning masses who strive to avoid risk, because it is they who always end up feeding the machines of war, despair, and tyranny.
The power thirsty halls of elitism surely instigate and manipulate the tides of this wretched ocean of quivering souls, but ultimately, the weak-hearted and weak minded make all terrible conquests possible.
The concept of “big government” appeals to such
people for many reasons…
At least, that’s what it almost always devolves into.
The great illusion of the system, though, is
that ANY group of average people ever actually wields any power. The truth
is, big governments are always operated by very small and exclusive clubs of
root beneficiaries out of the sight of the population.
If one were to closely examine the birth of
every iron-fisted oligarchy throughout history, they would find a cyclical
pattern of centralization; the removal of checks and balances, the removal
of legitimate public involvement in the political process, a dependent and
infantilized citizenry, and the rise of a “bureaucratic class” which regards
itself as superior and born to lead. All steps taking place within Western
Are they really getting what they want out of
their government? Or, is the government taking what it wants from them?
The most dangerous and insidious of governments present themselves as a kind of social vanity mirror. They allow the citizenry to project their collective desires, biases, shortcomings, and fears, and reflect back an image that entices and placates the majority.
The lies and manipulations of big government are
designed to satiate our basest fantasies, but what we see as a concrete
edifice of political and legal might, in the end, is a mirage mired in the
fog of our own naïve expectations.
The answer is no purpose… at least, no
purpose that elevates and enriches the public at large.
Like the ring of Sauron, it lures in the weak
with promises of power, but this power is a ruse. Each side of our false
left/right paradigm, Democrat and Republican, thinks that if only THEY were
the bearers of the ring they would “finally use it for good”. But once in
their possession, they are overtaken, overwhelmed, and corrupted by personal
How quickly did the rank and file Democrats turn
away from their anti-war, anti-torture, anti-banker, anti-surveillance,
anti-tyranny stance once
Barack Obama, a self proclaimed
Democrat, was placed in office? Very quickly!
Yet, a masochistic cycle of misplaced trust
in the system on the part of the masses continues...
Defenders of the bailout measures (which the EU demanded) allowing the confiscation of private citizen savings to pay off government mismanaged debt, argue two things:
Just to be clear, any sizable Russian funds being stored in Cyprus were removed before the bailout measures were instituted.
Therefore, the assertion that such people were “punished” is a lie and a distraction.
The Russian scapegoat was merely being promoted by global financiers and political elites in order to con people around the world (not just those in Cyprus) to accept the concept of government theft of private funds as being “moral” under “certain extraneous circumstances”.
When a government wants you to set aside your conscience in support of an immoral action that serves their interests, they will almost always conjure a false villain and engineered consequences for you to direct your fear and anger at.
Once they can convince you to abandon your own
principles to smite an imaginary enemy or avoid a manufactured threat, even
if only one time, it will be much easier for them to convince you again a
This false choice process, though, never ends.
The offending government will demand more
property and more freedom from the citizenry everyday while constantly
warning that if we do not submit, the alternative will be “far worse”.
Governments and elitists have always stolen from the public through misspent taxation and rampant inflation, but with Cyprus, we see a renewed feudalistic paradigm.
The EU and the banking hierarchy are sending a message to the Western world:
When an institution confiscates property and capital at will from a subdued and frightened populace without consent, they are essentially exploiting the labor of that populace.
In any culture or language, this is called
This is one of the primary reasons why we will stop at nothing to eliminate entities like the Federal Reserve; a privately run banking cartel that mingles with government yet answers to no one, including Congress or the people. The FED has existed since 1913, and has dominated the value and circulation of our currency ever since.
However, today, they are taking on new powers…
Right now, they are limited to the banking
sector, but eventually, this dynamic will poison every aspect of the
financial world until every economic decision will be made without any
oversight from the public.
The ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ hidden within the pages of the HR 933 spending bill creates special circumstances that protect the GMO producer from litigation and public examination over the dangerous genetic products it markets.
This legislation, in essence, builds a coalition
between Monsanto and the government, and even allows Monsanto in some cases
to dictate what the government can and cannot do when dealing with GMO’s.
It shows that we have entered a new stage of the
totalitarian process; one that will invariably lead us to catastrophe.
Rather, bureaucrats and think tanks fashion
policy while elected officials serve as mouthpieces and middlemen.
Now, I do not believe that Cuomo was not aware of the implications of the Safe Act, even if he didn’t read the bill.
But I do believe that the bill was drafted
purely by special interest groups like the Brady Center without any
oversight from actual state legislators, who then passed it overnight
without a second thought.
Why would they read it, when they are no longer
making decisions on such policies anyway? All they have to do is vote how
they are told to vote by their handlers, and trust that they will be
protected by the establishment from public anger.
The alternative is a legal and political
structure that is engineered entirely by obscure interest groups with an
agenda, and this is highly unacceptable.
Usually, this is done in the name of the
“greater good”. Sometimes, they don’t even try to sugar coat it.
When questioned about the Constitutionality of the growing drone surveillance grid in American skies, Bloomberg had this to say:
And there you have it.
The new age (for Bloomberg and big government elites like him) is a place in which government is separate and above the people. The government does not exist to serve the citizenry; the citizenry exists to serve the government.
Privacy is a privilege that governments can take anytime they wish. Citizens, being slaves, should not expect such privileges. And, this subjugated nightmare world is a place that we must accept as a natural extension of progress.
Brother is the future, so grow up and “get used to it”…
Today, as we have shown over and over again, the centralized political behemoth we live under is absolutely unnecessary and completely destructive to the freedom and prosperity of the culture it was originally tasked to defend.
It can and must be dissolved, and it is time for average Americans to deeply and seriously ponder this option rather than ignorantly assume that because it exists, it should exist.
Otherwise, like a weaponized cancer, it will devour what is left of the healthy fabric of our society and destroy whatever good remains within us.
