The creation of laws that make nearly everything illegal is the main tool bureaucrats use to line their pockets at the expense of others.
Think of it. Most people who vote are unwilling to read past the headlines of cleverly worded propaganda aimed at creating the illusion of likeability, talent, honor, and truthfulness. (In fact, it’s doubtful that the majority of people who may have stumbled upon this writing have read even this far.) The masses have no interest in either reading or investigating the facts about any person for whom they will vote.
Instead, they base it on their friends’ opinions or a television advertisement. Life is just too busy to expend any time on such a boring matter.
Command and Control
Have you ever wondered if the number of votes in an important national election is accurate? In one particular election, many districts reported that over 110% of eligible voters cast their ballot for a single candidate. 110% of eligible voters…; do you even know what that means? Have you even read this far? Good! Then let us continue.
Redistribution of wealth
Further, the glass ceiling for the poor sits right at the so-called poverty line; that being the amount of subsistence deemed by those in power to allow their slaves to continue providing the means to sustain the elite’s elevated lifestyle.
People, especially uneducated people, desperate to survive and make a better life for their children, will do nearly anything to provide food, shelter, and clothing for their families. And it is upon this basic human trait that manipulative politicians build their empires.
A “government of the people” is being transformed into a dictatorship akin to those written about in history. And its people, those who have been and are now becoming dependent on their government, are being blindly herded into fenceless work camps and eventually into perceived pens for systematic slaughter.
Of course, they will be allowed to live so long as they produce and continue to propagate even more willing slaves to fight the wars, build the palaces and harvest the food for the elite.
Do you, dear Reader, have any idea about the place to which the foregoing speaks?
If not, look out your own front door. Take off your rose-colored glasses and view the facts about your own situation. I hope for you that none of the above fits your neighborhood.
“People, especially uneducated people, desperate to survive and make a better life for their children, will do nearly anything to provide food, shelter and clothing for their families. And it is upon this basic human trait that manipulative politicians build their empires.”
This isn’t just happening in the US as many Americans believe, its rampant here in the UK and across the English Channel in mainland Europe as well.
My question is simply this – when did the western world become a third world group of states?
You’re right Jack but this isn’t about just the “western world” nations. It’s about all the countries where the politicians have discovered how to vote themselves a very comfortable life at the expense of the masses.
Thanks for commenting.
The article has a great deal of truth in it, but without being specific. Mr. Eason’s comments extend the statement to cover the entire Western World. Both Politz and Eason make blanket statements without naming names. But just taking the main idea of both writer and commenter, I believe (1) those concepts are overly cynical. There are still individuals who truly care for their countries, for their people, and want to better their lives. (2) Western Civilization is singled out for scorn, as is Democracy by implication, which is the form of government in Western Nations. Would anyone in these “corrupt” Western nations want to exchange their form of government for a sadistic Caliphate that massacres, beheads, burns, drowns those who don’t agree with its mission? Or for the brutal Dictatorship of North Korea, or the Mullah-ocracy of Iran, or the warlords of Africa who use male children as soldiers and female children as sex slaves? We should not be so lazy as to condemn Western Civilization and Democracy. I say “lazy” because it’s a form of laziness to condemn only what you know, rather than take the trouble to see what else is out there. What is out there is not pretty. Let’s take advantage of our democracy by really paying attention to the backgrounds and records of those who want to rule, and then vote on that basis. Yes, and hope for the best. At the same time we absolutely must defend our civilization from the savages who want to destroy it, while we try to improve it.
