“The principle that the majority have a right to rule the minority, practically resolves all government into a mere contest between two bodies of men, as to which of them shall be masters, and which of them slaves; a contest, that — however bloody — can, in the nature of things, never be finally closed, so long as man refuses to be a slave.”~ Lysander Spooner
“Democracy is the system of a free country”, of all the lies ever told this one takes second place only to ” The Pope is the infallible emissary of God”. This, though, is the church of good intentions, built on the foundation that mob rule is somehow fair and noble. Yes, this is the reigning and supreme king of all distorted logic, that somehow the strangers that you happen to live amongst have the right, if there are enough of them, to tell you how to live your life. Honestly, how do we fall for this? Simple, people want to believe that because they go to a public building every few years and cast a ballot that they are somehow in control of their government, they even go so far as to say they are the government. That statement to me shows that they suffer a form of Stockholm Syndrome, they are what Malcolm X so eloquently called out as being the “house Negroes”. They relate more to their masters than with the other slaves, the ones who recognize their situation for what it really is and rebel against it. Interestingly in our 2 party oligarchy, the serfs here only recognize how out of control the government actually is when their party isn’t in power.
We have voted ourselves into tyranny bit by bit and now, with all that is going on, it seems that the brakes are off. We are heading headlong into a police state. I’m not being melodramatic or hysterical, it’s a simple fact, nothing more nor less. We have our own version of the KGB, Homeland Security, children are being tasered by police, our government is militarizing the Boy Scouts, they have broken Posse Comitatus, they have taken over the banks, they have destroyed the Constitution, they torture and detain people without evidence and they now are targeting their own citizens as terrorists. Everyday it seems a new insult is heaped upon the injury, and yet many deny it’s happening. What is sadder, many want it to happen, they are craving the boot to come down on the necks of their enemies.
Who are their enemies? All who don’t agree with them. Why? Because anyone who disagrees with them are bad people and deserve to be punished for their wickedness. It doesn’t matter which party they belong to, both believe their side are the good and the decent, it’s the others who are evil and traitorous. Nonsense! Both parties are corrupt and completely undeserving of any loyalty. Anyone who shows these parties anything but contempt is nothing more than a zealot of the new religion, the religion of the whim of men. They can do anything they want to you because it’s for the greater good. They can force you to have a baby or to abort it, it’s for the greater good. They can force you pay more for oil or destroy the oil industry, it’s for the greater good. They can force you to suffer or pay to have others suffer, it’s for the greater good. Yes, they spread democracy, the great religion it’s become, by the force of the gun. They spread freedom with bombs and sanctions that kill children, it’s for the greater good. Somehow we believe this, the demagogues have spoken and all those who disagree are enemies. Not only that, we feel that somehow they are doing this for us. That somehow, no matter how insane their policies are, they are working in our best interests.
“Our constitutions purport to be established by ‘the people’ and in theory ‘all the people’ consent to such a government as the constitutions authorize. But this consent of the people exists only in theory. It has no existence in fact. Government is in reality established by the few: and these few assume the consent of all the rest, without any such consent being actually given.” ~ Lysander Spooner
Call me an enemy, I’m an enemy to the state. I have never given my consent to this or any government to rule over me. I am forced to follow laws made long before I was born and now I have to follow laws made by men and women I never voted for because others did. I’m told there is a class war, a war against the poor, a war against women, a war against minorities, a war against the middle class, a war against the white man, a war against the rich, etc. ad nauseum. Wake up! It’s been the same war from the beginning, liberty vs slavery. The rulers vs the ruled, no matter what system is in place, that has always been the struggle. Yes it is a class war, the political class vs productive class. The fact that people now put their faith in government, and it’s parasites, the way they once put their faith in God is what frightens me. I put my faith in no man nor God, I am forever doomed to be ruled by mobsters. Why? Because of the bogus sentiment of democracy. The unwashed masses using the guns of government against all they oppose. Free health care is good! So what if it bankrupts us? The majority wants it. Might makes right and if the majority wants it it must be good. That is until the majority wants something you don’t, then they are ignorant and it’s mob mentality. Our rulers love the mob mentality though, they love the fact that you are house slaves and you will tolerate any harebrained evil they can concoct in the name of democracy and the greater good! I for one don’t buy it. The wolves are voting for what’s for lunch and I am the well armed lamb contesting the vote.
