There are two types of people in this world; those who worship the
ideal of centralized command authority, and those who do not. 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.
They live by the rule of fear, and their fear drives them to seek
control; control of their environment, control of others, and by
extension they believe, control of the future. They attempt to mitigate
their overwhelming fear by containing the world and sterilizing it of
everything wild, untamed, and unknown. They dream of a society of pure
predictability, and zero responsibility. They are willing to sacrifice
almost anything to attain this position of artificial comfort.
The concept of “big government” appeals to such people for many reasons…
Government in most cases is nothing but an abstraction. It is merely a
tool that serves the interests of a particular group of people at any
given time. Modern politics is an expression of the foolish cat fight
between factions of people to decide who gets to wield the weapon of
government and impose their ideology on the rest of us. 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
The smaller this dominant group becomes, the more corrupt and
criminal the government generally is. A government reaches a state of
despotism whenever its functions are twisted for the sake of an elite
few to the detriment of the common man, and when it ignores the natural
inborn rights of the individual for the sake of some fabricated
collective . 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 infantized citizenry, and the rise of a “bureaucratic
class” which regards itself as superior and born to lead. All steps
taking place within Western societies today.
Unfortunately, the masses tend to view big government as an
inevitability of life; as a natural extension of culture. Rarely if ever
do they ask what tangible purpose it serves. Are they really getting
what they want out of their government? Or, is the government taking
what it wants from them?
I have always found the worshipful attitude that some citizens
ascribe to government simultaneously fascinating and disturbing, because
these people are not bowing down to a wise and benevolent entity.
Rather, they are bowing down to their own delusions of what they believe
that entity to be. 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.
So, the question again arises; if the structure of big government is
built upon deceit and misrepresentation, what tangible purpose does it
The answer is no purpose…at least, no purpose that elevates and enriches the public at large.
Big government is not a “necessary evil”. It is just evil. 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 temptation.
The Democratic Party, with all of its proclamations of humanism and
respect for civil liberties, is a perfect example. 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!
And what about the common Republican? How many of them utterly
abandoned their ideals of limited government, reduced spending,
Constitutional rights, and Christian understanding as soon as Bush and
the Neo-Con regime was installed? Most of them!
And when all is said and done, who has reaped profits and gained
dominance during both disastrous administrations? The corporate high
priests and international banking cartels, not the oblivious
participants of the fake political theater. Yet, a masochistic cycle of
misplaced trust in the system on the part of the masses continues…
If these latest signs of big government corruption aren’t enough to
make the public question the validity of the establishment, I’m not sure
The Rape Of Cyprus
Even in the face of unmitigated government theft, I still hear the
occasional rationalization of the Cyprus debacle. Defenders of the
bailout measures (which the EU demanded) allowing the confiscation of
private citizen savings to pay off government mismanaged debt, argue two
1) The banks that were targeted contained “Russian blood
money” and hidden funds, so confiscation really amounted to a
“punishment of rich criminals” rather than the Cyprus public.
2) It is “better” that the citizens go along with the
confiscation of a percentage of their accounts, rather than lose
everything through collapse.
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 second time.
Large and corrupt governments love to use the magic of the false
choice. For instance, “…it is better to sacrifice some of your money and
your principles to the establishment than it is to live through total
collapse of the nation…” 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”.
The truth is, Cyprus is not the issue. What the disaster in Cyprus
reflects, however, concerns us all. It is a moment of precedence; an
action which sets the stage for the final destruction of the idea of
private property. It dissolves one of the final barriers to total
government control. 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: You are now their
personal emergency fund, and nothing you own is actually yours anymore.
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 “slavery”.
Private Corporations Openly Dictating The Law
As most in the Liberty Movement know, the seeds of Fascism germinate
in the soil where the corporate world meets the political world. 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…
