As you may have noticed, eventually the successful manipulators evolve almost exclusively into those which can afford to make huge campaign bribes to get the minions elected and to hire one or more professional lobbyists to influence them even further.)
History definitively proves that, when practiced by governments, guarantees discord, discontent, disharmony, upheaval, chaos, and political disaster, often leading to totalitarianism.
“” you may be thinking already, “ ”
So you may be surprised to discover that more than half — 58% — of 4 million folks around the world surveyed in a Cambridge U. study are dissatisfied with democracy. That’s the highest level of discontent ever recorded in the survey’s 25 year history. Further, the level of dissatisfaction is particularly high in the U.S.A. and U.K.
calls the unprecedented number of world-wide upheavals, most in democracies, “.” They’re continuing in 2020.
For starters, there are upheavals in Iraq, Algeria, Haiti, Hong Kong, Columbia, Sudan, Brazil, Argentina. And more democracies on the brink. South Africa, Italy, and “authorities” aren’t too sure about India, etc., Greece — and Bolivia, Ecuador,
Even Germany. And England, Scotland, Ireland, Whales and their people are divided over “BREXIT.”
These shakey democracies include assumed-to-be extremely stable countries such as Chile, Spain (Catalonia), Venezuela, Lebanon, even Israel.
Perhaps most surprising so far is France, with over a year — 60 weeks so far — of massive street demonstrations, beginning on Nov. 17, 2018 with the “ ” or “ ,” ignited by an increase in petrol tax and now re-upped by the , ignited by an attempted government re-form of French “.”
You can find a sporadically updated list with links here: UNCOMMON SENSE: Major Demonstrations and Riots .
In some ways, these uprisings are more focused continuations of the “to at least 951 cities in 82 countries.” Movements that began in late 2011 and spread all around the world
And there’s this:
And that was all COVID-19 fiasco and the George Floyd related Black Lives Matter (BLM) demonstrations all around the world. the
Maybe isn’t such a good idea after all? And the bankers have something to do with it? If so, what?
Let’s take a look – – –
Imagine “” — that is all approximately 320 million Americans — went to Baskin & Robbins (or Ben and Jerry’s) but collectively we — even the folks who didn’t vote — or even eat — all had to buy and pay for the winning flavor of ice cream — vanilla perhaps. Even when less than half voted for it. Even when less than half voted at all.
That’s an example of . On the other hand, we might elect a few folks to decide which flavor of ice cream we all get and how much we have to pay for it. That would be “ .”
Clearly such circumstances should be avoided if at all possible, especially because when the “” there’s always a minority that loses. The more votes taken, the more losers.
There’s a third form of democracy which avoids that problem. It’s the one we want, use in our daily lives, and subconsciously ass-u-me when we hear the word. That’s probably because it’s almost certainly built-in to our genome. We’ll call that .
In , folks seek out others who agree with them and are willing, temporarily at least, to contribute time and/or money to their mutually agreed upon project(s). They don’t involve those who aren’t interested in their project(s) and certainly don’t expect the non-interested to pay for them.
Where pseudo “regulators” — the folks who want vanilla get and pay for their own vanilla. Even the folks who want or can usually get what they want. exists — as practiced by the original North American inhabitants and other “primitive” folks and in most of our day-to-day interactions, including voluntary exchanges in markets free of unwanted third party taxers and
And the folks who aren’t hungry or don’t want ice cream don’t have to pay or even get off the recliner to vote.
On the other hand, some of them might contribute to folks they feel ice cream.
Who would want to do things any other way?
Because it’s so difficult, expensive, time-consuming and thus impractical to take universal votes on everything, becomes unwieldly, even in relatively small groups.
As a result, despite certain psychological advantages, there are few groups of any size — and no countries — run by .
When practiced in groups, however — where participation is voluntary — both and approximate and so can be useful.
And because you aren’t forced to belong to such private, voluntary groups — the PTA, Orthodox church, Mosque, the local paint-ball club, etc. — and those who do belong are free to easily leave them and/or stop paying dues, they stay mostly under control or else they disappear.
However, once you lose that ability to easily leave a group — and/or to stop paying dues — the membership loses that easy control and the organization eventually gets of control.
Democracy or not, that “” situation applies to territorial state-based governments. That’s because, if you live in the geographical area they claim, those organizations make your membership mandatory, claim jurisdiction over you, and assert the right to extort your as “ .” This insight may be what promped U.S. founder Thomas Jefferson to pen, “ ”
And so, lacking meaningful control, sooner or later territorial states begin to deteriorate towards discord, discontent, disharmony, upheaval, chaos, and political disaster, often leading to totalitarianism.
History — particularly 2019 and 2020 history as above and developing — shows this just happens a lot faster in . Why do you suppose?
And yes, these days the banks — especially the Central Banks — involved.
And yes, there’s an alternative form of government that can, temporarily at least, hold the bad territorial democracies at bey.
Our early American ancestors understood the dangers of democracy — and of majority rule in general — and weren’t shy in warning about them – – –
“ankind will in time discover that unbridled majorities are as tyrannical and cruel as unlimited despots.”
“n elective despotism was not the government we fought for”
U.S. “” James Madison was more specific – – –
“ence it is that such democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”
That’s what happens when folks stop minding their own business and start minding someone else’s.
It’s clear these ancestors were worried about majorities forcing their will on minorities just as we should be. Remember that vanilla-ice-cream vote.
And it’s more than well worth remembering that the smallest minority and the one that really counts is the individual. That’s you and me, bro.
While John Adams’ mention of “” implicates kings and dictators, it’s that’s mucking up world.
In fact, the problems with for example – – – — I even had a watered-down (P.O.D.) class in high-school — were well understood at least through the first third of the as demonstrated by
emocracy, n. “A government of the masses. …Results in mobocracy. Attitude toward property is communistic – negating property rights. …Results in demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy.”
And a few folks have been trying to warn us as well – – –
“All democracies turn into dictatorships — but not by coup. The people give their democracy to a dictator, whether it’s Julius Caesar or Napoleon or Adolf Hitler. Ultimately, the general population goes along with the idea … ”
“Most police states, surprisingly, come about through the democratic process with majority support. During a crisis, the rights of individuals and the minority are more easily trampled, which is more likely to condition a nation to become a police state than [is] a military coup. “
“Auschwitz didn’t fall suddenly from the sky, Auschwitz crept and tiptoed, taking small steps, it came closer, until this happened here,” warned Marian Turski, 93, a Polish-Jewish survivor who called for vigilance against the abuse of minorities’ rights ….
“The movie [‘‘] is more comparing us [Americans] to the Germans, the ‘ ‘ one of the most civilized, cultured, educated, liberal democracies on the planet Earth. And they went along. …Hitler’s party won 32 percent of the parliament in 1932, …He holds a plebiscite and asks the people, ‘ ‘ …and the majority of Germans voted ‘ ‘”
Despite this clear and present danger, everyone from Amy Goodman (foist them on others all around the world. What gives?) to ironically mis-named “ ” and even leftist icon Michael Moore — who spelled out the dangers of democracy just above — are cheering for state-based democracies, defending them, and trying to
And what is it about that causes all the discord, discontent, disharmony, upheaval, chaos, and political disaster our ancestors warned against and we’re seeing today?
While “” obviously causes trouble — sticking us all with vanilla ice cream and the bill for example — if it can lead to totalitariansim, there’s got to be more to the story. Doesn’t there?
Yes. But first we need a little context – – –
And so we come to that alternative form of government that can, temporarily at least, hold kings, dictators, and the bad territorial democracies at bey. And protect us individuals from majorities.
For example, the well-designed crafted by the U.S. founders. That’s what’s defined and created by . It’s what many of us pledged allegiance to in school like this – – –
Notice we pledge allegiance to a democracy.
Given the nature of government-in-general – – –
“overnment is not reason, it is not eloquence; it is force, and like fire, makes a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”
“he State represents violence in a concentrated and organized form. The individual has a soul, but as the State is a soulless machine, it can never be weaned from violence to which it owes its very existence.”
– – – coming up with a safe government of kind is clearly a serious challenge.
Because of the economic interests that want to use them for their own ends and the psychopathic personalities governments attract — not to mention mandatory “ ” and membership — crafting a durable democracy-proof is particularly difficult.
For starters, it requires an iron-clad set of rules specifically designed to confine, limit, bind, and control the minions elected and/or hired to operate and administer it.
Those rules must keep the minions from transforming the into a which would then serve those and but screw the rest of us.
And then, keeping the following in mind – – –
“xperience hath shewn, that even under the best forms [of government] those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny;”
– – – it requires eternal vigilence through succeeding generations to the minions obeying those iron-clad rules.
It’s particularly important to keep the minions under control because, remember, territorial governments make it difficult to quit the group or withhold “” once they get out of control.
And once they do, as another of our earlier American ancestors warned,
“o man’s life, liberty or property are safe while the legislature is in session.”
From the Ninth and Tenth amendments to , you can get a pretty good idea of just how appropriately distrustful the framers were of the minions and how serious they were about keeping them under control – – –
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
In other words, the minions can’t use the fact we didn’t list all your rights to deny you the ones we didn’t list – – – and the U.S. Government minions have the powers we specifically listed in and no others.
As you can tell, the minions now almost completely ignore both Amendments and have for a long time.
So we don’t need a government to protect us so much as we need something to protect us folks who are attracted to it. government — and the
The was quite a good attempt at doing just that.
What’s enabled the U.S.A. to survive this long is that until the turn of the — 1913 is a good marker as you’ll see — the minions elected and hired to administer the for the most part followed rules confining, limiting and binding them.
Fortunately, a little of that limited still lingers on.
fortunately, it’s fading fast. To get a down-and-dirty read on the rate of decline, if you had Googled “” on January 6, 2020, you would have found about 6,980,000 hits while “ ” got only 1,650,000, less than 24% as many.
So while we’re not a full-blown democracy yet, according to that metric, we’re more than 75% there.
Is the being converted to “ ” by mistake or is it by design?
So, can we add “” to the list? Will it go full totalitarian?
And that brings us back to with the obvious question: “ ” And ?
And why would folks go along with it?
Here’s the first clue – – –
…he model has discovered a fundamental flaw in democratic society. It shows that in any society of even moderate complexity, making decisions by majority rule gives power not to the people, but to professionals who know how to manipulate political procedures to their advantage.
So it’s not the voters in a who control things. Instead, it’s the “ ”
As you may have noticed, eventually the successful manipulators evolve almost exclusively into those which can afford to make huge campaign bribes to get the minions elected and to hire one or more professional lobbyists to influence them even further.
In fact, as six-term U.S. Senator John McCain explains, it’s often those professional lobbyists who write the laws passed by the minions and, according to 26-term (52 year) U.S. Congressman John Conyers, the minions don’t even read them anyway – – –
Do you suppose they’re passing too many? Rep. Conyers seems to think so. You will too if you keep reading.
But the pay-out for those who can afford to buy what has now obviously become democracy is huge.
As Johnny Chung explained it,
“ see the White House is like a subway — you have to put in coins to open the gates.”
The result is, as the quip goes, “”
When getting into the U.S. Presidential race for the first time, Barack Obama perfectly explains how bogus democracy works- – –
As Mr. Obama explains, the lobbyists and special interests “… ”
And once bogus democracy has over-written the , they do.
It’s clear then; it’s “ ” — unless we can afford to make huge campaign bribes and hire at least one lobbyist.
So now the minions rarely even mention and when they do, regularly demonstrate they have no idea that it was designed mainly to limit them, not empower them to muck around in everyone’s business.
Corruption has set in as it always does when dues are no longer voluntary. Rather than the minions protecting us individuals and other minorities, we hear that standard bogus-democracy excuse for repression, “”
And it is of course. They just don’t tell you the psychopaths. people want it. Unsurprisingly, it’s almost always the people “ .” And
And even in the rare instances the minions are paying attention and it really is what wants, a minority still loses and there are often severe consequences as history will remind you shortly.
Unfortunately, all representative organizations are, over time, subject to this degradation. It just happens faster once “” is used as the ruse.
It’s this “” excuse that puts to sleep, the nose and first hump in the tent, and the violence and other malign behavior of modern governments at the disposal of psychopaths and special interests. And against freedom, liberty — and we individuals.
Voting in a bogus democracy just creates the illusion that you have something to say about what’s being done to you by the “ ” , in a bogus democracy, your vote “ ”
So there is indeed power in voting, just for the bamboozled voter pulling the levers at the local precinct on election day.
As this process morphs the well-crafted Republic into “” bogus representative democracy, two main processes begin to propel it toward discord, discontent, disharmony, upheaval, chaos, political disaster — and totalitarianism.
First, although we’re now 75% bogus democracy, it’s not the “ ” that are causing the problems. Instead, it’s the run-away minions which is much worse because they vote .
And since this is a democracy, every minion vote is which means everyone in the geographical area is supposed to be bound by the result and is expected to pay the bills for it.
And with every vote, there’s that minority that loses. The more votes, the more losers.
If the minions took a vote on ice cream, heaven forbid, and won, “ ” would insist that all of us be limited to , ultimately backed-up by prison cells and the police gun.
And undoubtedly, a so-called “” for and would evolve.
I know, ridiculous, isn’t it?
But consider the folks who preferred alcoholic beverages during the failed 14-year attempt at alcohol prohibition in the 1920’s territorial U.S. — and the folks who want to smoke pot, even today in 2020 A.D.
Diversity can be, well, troubling. Why not force your personal biases on everyone? Especially when the minions claim it’s “”
Let’s do away with drunks says the WCTU . And pot smokers act funny.
And so, with the bogus “” excuse, the votes, laws, rules, regulations, orders and controls — and taxes to pay for them — pile up over time. So do the unhappy vote-losers and tax payers.
But as attempted alcohol and drug prohibition both conclusively prove — and don’t homogenize well. Thank goodness! took into account by protecting minorities — that doesn’t work because we humans
The on-going attempt to homogenize us makes more and more of us repressed, depressed, unhappy. And turns us into enemies and sometimes violent. It’s the in full bloom.
And so we end up with that majority dissatisfied with democracy.
Consider all the upheaval, chaos, mayhem murder and world-record incarceration caused by U.S. governments vainly trying to prevent folks from drinking booze and smoking pot.
Not all democratic votes have such dramatic effects, but you can be pretty sure there’s another group of disaffected losers with every ballot.
Let’s put some numbers into the equation.
In the U.S.A. — in “40,000 new laws — to say nothing of rules, regulations, orders and controls — go into effect every year.” — approximately
Equally as disruptive, this proliferation of laws — and the rules, regulations orders and controls that go with them — dilute and discredit the few laws that make sense.
As the quip goes, “”
In the vain attempt to enforce all these bogus democratic rules-mentality repressive obsessions, you obviously need more and more enforcement personnel.
And as the work-load mushrooms into impossibility and the helpful folks select themselves out, the character of those remaining personnel morphs from previously helpful “” into intimidating and sometimes murderous and accurately named s ( aw nforcement fficers) instead. They begin to assault and kill citizens rather than keeping the peace.
Folks begin to talk about living in a police state and while there’s still lip-service to freedom, folks forget what it feels like to be free, and the young never know.
Eventually, LEOs become assassination targets.
Because of the case-load caused by all the laws, trial by jury — designed to protect minorities — becomes unworkable and so the establishment replaces it with — they call it — and only about 2% of cases that aren’t dismissed ever see a jury.
And even then, the “justice” establishment uses stack all it’s juries and so nearly snuffs-out jury nullification, one of the most powerful minority protections built-in to . to
Using may even be executed — and the perp runs free — it makes the law-and-order industry stats look good., overzealous interrogations often convince people who didn’t commit the crime to confess anyway. So, while innocent folks go to prison and
There are so many laws, it’s plausibly estimated that the average American, mostly unknowingly, commits three felonies a day.
With that statistic in mind, it should be no surprise that the U.S.A. holds by far the world record for per-capita incarceration.
In the “1 in 31 Americans is in prison, on probation or on parole, two out-of-three for victimless “crimes.” We’re so far ahead in the race to incarcerate, no other country is even visible in the rear-view mirror.” about
The other side of that coin is that, since we’re all guilty of some fake “felony” or other — and the NSA likely has the evidence recorded from your device — we can be threatened, blackmailed, and/or persecuted by the establishment at will.
While this phase of “” is just beginning to bite, you regularly see the ground truth in cop shows when a LEO threatens someone with arrest on some technicality if they don’t kow-tow.
Look what they’re doing (2019 A.D.), even to rich-man Trump, his family, and particularly his associates.
So the key to our disaffection with democracy is all the laws, rules, regulations, orders and controls etc. that accumulate in a bogus winner-takes-all territorial democracy and the chaos they cause. The deteriorating deportment of the minions and those they hire to enforce all those legislative emissions tip folks off they’re in a rapidly deteriorating police state and well on the way to discord, discontent, disharmony, upheaval, chaos, and political disaster.
And this isn’t unique to the U.S.A., just more pronounced — because we’ve been around longer.
But there’s that key leading to political disaster. It involves your “dues,” present and future, and the economic parasites that feed on ’em – – –
While by no means the only that manipulates government for fun and profit, are the most egregious — they’re also central to why democracy is destroying the world.
The Central Bank scheme is simple: Just get governments to create you as a monopoly and then borrow money from you, exclusively at first.
Such loans are highly desirable because governments borrow huge amounts and they’re super-safe because, like the Mafia and other protection rackets, governments extort their “” money from “their” citizens as “taxes” with threats, intimidation, and if necessary, actual use of the taxman’s gun.
The biggest and most successful running example is the swindle in the U.S.. It was pioneered by early U.S. banksters and perfected in Nicaragua and other central American countries around the turn of the 20th Century, then gradually up-scaled and “improved” here in the U.S. beginning in 1913. You can find a very rough history of that quite interesting evolution here: SILENT PARTNERS .
The result is a memetic machine that operates as a reverse Robin Hood with the Central Banks as the nexus. It takes from everyone, especially poorer folks, and gives to .
“here.” John Perkins explains the updated scam and how it deals with foreign minions who are reluctant to indebt their citizens to the international moneyed interests and their political procedure manipulators
In the context of destruction of , note that until passage of the in tandem with the in 1913, Washington D.C. lived perfectly well on import tariffs and excise taxes alone.
So at first, the minions didn’t try to directly rip us flesh-and-blood residents off with the so-called . That was outlawed in the body of . It still is. Like this – – –
“o Capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or Enumeration hereinbefore directed to be taken.”
The income tax, when applied to flesh-and-blood residents, is a because as a flesh-and-blood , you can’t pass it on to anyone. So, the key is, is it “ ?” If not, it’s outlawed by as above, and cannot and does not apply to flesh-and-blood Americans.
The 16th Amendment? “income tax” is an excise tax and applies mainly to corporations, ultimately the price their owners pay for the government’s legal system limiting their liability. When you sign your 1040 form, you volunteer to be taxed as if you are a privileged corporation. ^^w
Before the swindle , the minions were limited because they didn’t have a Central Bank eager to lend them money — or a big chunk of their citizens’ future income-tax “ ” and future labor as collateral for those loans.
Keep in mind the banksters don’t want to be paid back, they just want to keep collecting that super-safe interest.
The simple way to expose this swindle is to ask, “”
By styling these loans as the “” the banksters made sure there was no escaping the payments — not even by death or personal bankruptcy — because the “ ” is automatically passed on to the kids, grand kids, and the yet unborn through taxes.
As the quip goes, “”
That’s a major clue to why the banksters are the second key to democracy destroying the world – – – and the final disaster lurches into view.
See, if the minions want to get re-elected, there’s a limit to the amount of “dues” they can extort from their bamboozled citizens and voters, even when about a third of the extortions are hidden. So they borrow instead. Because the kids, grand kids, and yet unborn — who will get the bill — vote.
But the grand kids and those bills are now coming due.
In the U.S. as of mid 2020 A.D., the HERE is about $26 trillion and growing rapidly. If you trust government figures, you can find the “ ”
But that’s not the only debt the minions have passed on to the kids, grand kids and yet unborn.
Remember those programs the minions passed to get re-elected, even sometimes ones the “” may have wanted? Ones that may have been written by lobbyists and not read by the minions?
While there are a bunch of these, we only need to look at two to see the magnitude of the problem here in the U.S.A.
According to Ponzi scheme, promised by the U.S. Government to old folks — who were taxed in advance by F.I.C.A. to pay for it — includes over $200-trillion in “.” That means the minions have no serious idea where that money will come from. in 2017, the combined bill for and, via the
Somehow, they’ll have to try to extort it from the kids, grand kids, and the yet unborn. Or default on the promise.
hink of the federal government as a gigantic [social] insurance company with a sideline business in national defense and homeland security. This particular insurance company, it turns out, has made personal promises to its policyholders that have a current value …in excess of the revenues it expects to receive. An insurance company with cash accounting is not really an insurance company at all,” he added, “Russell On Gold, Dow Theory Letters, 22 November, 2002
If you have your heart medicine and tranquilizers handy — and your firearms safely out of reach — you can find a dynamic and good-enough-for-government-work balance sheet of the situation HERE.
The bottom line is, that to get re-elected, the politicians pass the compounding costs of government on to the kids, grand kids and yet unborn.
The situation is similar in nearly all democracies. The difference is, when the minions in democracies can’t tax and borrow anymore, they go to external sources, usually the World Bank’s political lending arm, the IMF. Both are controlled by the U.S.
But like all bankers, the IMF wants to be sure it will get those regular interest payments and they clearly see the problems that caused the politicians to ask them for loans in the first place.
So as part of the conditions for its loans, the IMF requires a decrease in government spending — called “.”
Austerity, rather than cutting out favors to those , instead requires cutting back the “free” government services citizens are being taxed to pay for and have become addicted to. But now folks can’t afford these on their own because of their tax burden — and the costs have mushroomed because there are no market forces controlling government programs.
Usually the IMF requires the wimpy minions to also increase taxes on their already squeezed “citizens” — or as some call them more accurately, “” — as well. And the bulk of the loan must first go to pay-off previous loans from the IMF and the other wise-guy financial “vultures” circling the carcass.
Only a few realize they’ve been voted into tax-slavery by the minions, and, what with all the rules, regulations, orders and controls — and their devices monitored 24/7 and CCTV cameras everywhere — into what is beginning to resemble an open-air gulag. None the less, one way or another, nearly everyone feels it in their personal lives.
So, although few see the big picture, you now have a super-saturated solution of disillusioned and often desperate citizens — well over half discontented with , remember — and, as Peter Fisher put it, .
A tiny additional crystal or even a speck of dust falling into such a super-saturated solution will cause it to crystalize into demonstrations, often violent street-riots, revolts, revolutions, etc. just as documented at the top of this article. Often it’s what insiders like former World-Bank Chief-Economist Joseph Stiglitz expect and accurately call “”
While that additional crystal or speck can be almost anything — an additional tax on petrol in France, slightly increased subway fares in Chile, perceived government corruption in Lebanon — according to one remarkably accurate model, there’s one thing that most dependably predicts these outcomes: An increase in the price of basic necessities, particularly food.
So it isn’t “” as hopeful socialists like to imagine — few begrudge Bill Gates his billions, even though they did come from — it’s the specter of starvation.
And so we come to discord, discontent, disharmony, upheaval, chaos, and political disaster, often leading to totalitarianism. And, with the minions stacking laws and debt on future generations to get re-elected, not only but .
And, no surprise, the are and . Until it self-destructs.
The thing is, the idiots weren’t idiots all at once, they were sort of idiots like this remember – – –
“xperience hath shewn, that even under the best forms [of government] those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”
The control, power and money the mechanism self-destructs. and get by manipulating a representative democracy is their purloined prize and why they do it, at least until their
Few of them are aware of the looming disaster until it’s too late because it evolves as a usually unnoticed long-cycle memetic machine like this – – –
“hen plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”
Why would “we” go along with it? Well, if “we” understood what was happening, “we” wouldn’t. Unfortunately our more recent ancestors made the mistake of dropping that and trusting the minions. And of taking them seriously, although we know that they have to be good liars to get elected. And they tend to be psychopaths. Unfortunately, most of us still don’t know that.
And, in addition to mistaking state-based territorial representative democracy for — along with the incessant drone of “ ” soundbytes of course — the main thing that usually bamboozles folks is the completely unwarranted and usually unstated assumption that it’s values which the will attempt to foist on everyone else in your territorial area.
And so while voting be like this – – –
Instead, in a , you vote every four years and then the lobbyists, psychopaths, and special interests take over.
In a T.J. Lowi explains so well, voting has become a trick to con large numbers of people into enslaving themselves to a memetic machine designed to rob them, originally created by a gaggle of mostly long-dead banking “ ” and others “ ” then, as
Once the Constitutional limits and constraints on the minions are overcome by claims that “” and “ ” what’s left to prevent the from becoming the ? What’s left to stop the minions and idiots from converting the stable into just another ? What’s left to prevent coercive winner-takes-all bogus-democracy-enabled totalitarianism?
Despite all the hype and circumstance to the contrary, the majority of folks in the world are unhappy with their democracies, even if they don’t understand exactly why.
Of the three forms of democracy, is the only one that doesn’t coerce “dues” and participation. It’s the kind we instincively seek and ass-u-me.
The other two — and — require coercion to exact “dues” and force compliance.
Our early American ancestors warned against the dangers of these inherently coercive democracies, pointing out that they lead to “” (Thomas Jefferson) “ ” (John Adams) and “ ” (James Madison)
They also understood the dangers of government in general. George Washington put it like this:
“Government is not eloquence, it is not reason; it is force, and like fire, makes a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”
The U.S. Constitution, , was a damn good barrier, minimizing the dangers of government, and protecting us individuals and our differences against not only democracy, but also against tin-pot dictators and so-called “royalty.”
However, as Jefferson forewarned – – – “”
– – – and Bastiat explained — “”
This happened here in the U.S. because, despite those warnings, the minions, elected and hired to administer the U.S. Constitution, largely financed by “““ tax-funded democracy down the path to tyranny and perdition.” none-the-less followed that unfortunate path. Using winner-takes-all democracy as a ruse, they gradually bamboozled us unwary victims into foresaking the stable and riding
This gradual pernicious degradation happens largely because, in the stampede to get re-elected, the minions pass laws that accumulate over time, making things more and more repressive to more and more individuals. And then, to pay for especially the pork-barrel “laws” and programs, the elected prevaricators run-up bills that accumulate as the so-called “” — and other financial obligations — that eventually swamp the kids, grand kids and yet unborn in impossible tax debt.
While many things may precipitate the inevitable upheavals and sometimes revolution, the modern rule-of-thumb that predicts it is when the cost of necessities, particularly food, raises the specter of starvation and destitution.
None the less, bamboozled folks from Amy Goodman (Democracy Now) to mis-named “” and try to foist similar on folks all around the world.” praise “
Now, much to your surprise I’d bet, you know why democracy is destroying the world. And how.
So, is the U.S. being converted from a stable something else even more troubling? into a by mistake or is it being done by design? Or is it
