03-18-2016: Government Service or Degradation, Fraud and Privilege ?

Governments, agencies or departments within governments tend uniformly to fail over time relative to their intended purpose, designed culture and mission.  This phenomena is not peculiar to government, but occurs within all sorts of organizations.  Oftentimes, the organization doesn’t fail, it morphs into something not intended or foreseen; sometimes into something poisonous.  As governments grow in size, bureaucracy and centralized power, they consistently tend toward poisonous.  This is inarguable historic fact.

Surely, we can all list dozens of potential causes effecting organizational failure and/or loss of cultural vision, particularly in the case of governments; but one seemingly innocuous cause is time coupled with human moral fraility.  (Maybe that’s two causes?)  Father Time can mend and heal, but also accommodates the breeding of other things; many positive; some much less so.

As an analogy, let’s suppose  ourselves and a few friends agree to form a group for community support and out-reach.  Our exciting mission is helping those in the city who are less fortunate; bolstering local education; nurturing small business growth; cultivating the creation of good jobs; and fostering prosperity.  We’ll call this new civic organization The Group and it’s committed to making Our City a better place to live.  Heck, we’ll make Our City the best place to live in the country.  There’s a noble goal.

Let’s assume The Group is successful beyond anything imagined. Over the years, Our City becomes an incredible place to live with beautiful parks, play grounds for kids, superior schools guided by active parents, a thriving business and medical community, a burgeoning arts and music center, etc.  Over this same time of course, we the original founders of The Group retire, move away, pass away and so forth.  New leaders are elected and/or appointed and The Group carries on.  The Group becomes well established, revered, respected and becomes a critical component of Our City’s successful reputation as a desirable place to raise a family or start a business.  Membership in The Group is highly regarded and The Group has now developed internal amenities such as salaries for top members, profitable insider business connections in banking, real estate,  land development, other business partnerships, etc.  Our City is a happy, happy place.  Those who do good for others are handsomely rewarded in Our City.

The Group was born in the spirit of responsible service to aid and bolster its community and attracted honorable civic leaders who served faithfully with integrity.  By its first centennial, however, The Group became so notably prominent and self possessed; membership so important that service became privilege and those people attracted to leadership tended to be pathologically addicted to wealth, influence and power with a peculiar focus toward benefiting important friends and insider connected special interests to the exclusion of all else, regardless the cost to their community.  The Group spiritually lost its way and with that loss, its purpose.

One day a small conflict developed.  The Owner of the restaurant where The Group leadership began and has met every other Thursday evening for decades, quietly suggests that The Group is taking up too many parking spaces, is causing inconvenience to other restaurant clientele and would they please consider holding meetings somewhere more appropriate?  This doesn’t sit well with The Privileged Group leadership, who at this point feel entitled, are full of self importance and so the turf war begins, quickly mushrooming into a major city battle, splitting the City Council into factions and spilling over into property disputes and power struggles over non-related issues involving who was getting what contracts or making how much money from this or that project.  You can imagine the rest of the divided story with its self righteous political in-fighting and justified greed.

What slowly happened to Our City over time is the transference of opinion, intent and power from a multifaceted group of independent individuals – say a balance of power, to a centralized civic organization demanding compliance with its by-laws and allegiance to its prevailing, now dominant views.  The Group now defends itself as its first priority; and its mission, its reason for existing in the first place has vanished. A relative few insiders now control Our City , through The Group and interconnected private relationships, setting the priorities, while tax paying property owners are left with no voice; divided, ready to be harvested by Group Members and their friends for money, votes or both.  The few now operate as a cartel for their own isolated, monopolized interest and Our City begins its long descent into mandated mediocrity and the expensive corruption typically fostered by monopolized (centralized) power everywhere.

The Federal government of the United States, founded as a well intended, self-governing civic organization (a group) of elected and appointed officials has now degraded to a privileged RULING CLASS GROUP controlled and operated by an UNSEEN, UNELECTED, UNIDENTIFIED ELITE GROUP of international financiers and inbred pathological robber barons.  We the people of Main Street, Useless Eaters as Bertrand Russell so eloquently referred to us, are a cheap commodity bred, fatted and conditioned for our productivity and hard working wealth creation to be harvested by the Elite Oligarchy for their own use and amusement.  Sounds like Feudalism or Slavery doesn’t it?  That’s because it is and we gullibly vote for it under the sweet sounding guise of “the public good”; so no cattle cars, walls, concertina wire or unseemly guards are necessary for transference of our birth right, our created abundance to the self-entitled Elite through their Socialist and Fascist systems, which we are told are best for us.  The Collectivist sales pitch advertises generous wealth re-distribution from the 1% to the poor; but in reality the poor receive crumbs in return for patronage votes enabling the Elite – high above the 1% –  to siphon off wealth from the productive middle class, not for the poor, but through fraudulent government programs supposedly for the poor to themselves in thousands of different ways through dozens of corrupt money laundering agencies.  Our $4 trillion per year Federal government is absolutely unmonitored, unmanaged and out-of-control.  It is organized crime whose daily operation is funded by American tax payers for their own wealth confiscation. A truly amazing system the statist, Elite owned media never goes near, identifies or mentions.

The only forces holding any group together over time, keeping it on task, are its founding principles and common goals, together with the honor and integrity of its leadership and members.  As vigilance falls off, those principles fall into disregard and the group becomes unpredictably driven by every so-called good idea, popular whim or worse yet – is mis-used by myopic bandits intent on self gratification and/or pleasing those higher up the food chain for future self benefit.  The heavy anchor of principle, once cut away, allows the ship to drift aimlessly, potentiality caught on the currents of divergent, conflicting power mongering and destructive greed. Government becomes a plaything and a cookie jar for the powerful.  This process of principle degradation over time is one reason why individual imagination and liberty are so important to self-governance and why personal integrity and honor are so critical to that imagination and liberty.  As long as individual liberty is cherished and protected by honorable citizens, the balance of power is insured regardless how messy or inconvenient.  Transference of individual power to a centralized entity always enables group power to surge out of control as it loses focus and morphs its values over time.  It enables the few to easily manipulate and control the many.  Free market capitalism engenders and nurtures the many and obfuscates the greedy few, even when abused.  Free markets are anarchy with rules nurturing equal opportunity when protected by responsible citizens.  Centralized Socialism and Fascism on the other hand, embolden the few insiders at the top, reward their ruling class thugs and kills all Main Street opportunity while strangling individual opportunity and freedom; all at the expense of the many and  in every recorded instance of history.

A healthy, de-centralized balance of power such as our now defunct Constitutional Republic is nearly impossible to upset when independent minded, imaginative individuals generously work together as in the original Group or our larger American Community.  Domination by one or a few is nearly impossible.  Whenever power becomes centralized in any democratic styled organization, abuse of power, control of resources and tyranny are enabled and history repeatedly shows the entitled few will trample the many, usually in the name of the public good or maybe for the children.

The historic life expectancy for previous Republican forms of government leading to failure, chaos and tyranny has been around 200 years.  The United States is now 240 years old and is listing badly to port; her steering in the hands of corrupt, delusional ruling class fools without allegiance, honor or understanding of the original principles upon which America was founded.  The Elite International Group now owns and operates our government through “K” Street carrots and back room sticks, without any real Main Street Representation and has been doing so since 1913, if you’d like to pick a year.  We, as more or less dis-interested, apathetic citizen voters routinely vote for so-called D.C. Representatives, organized crime wise guys really,  who are not only bought and paid for by special monopoly interests of the Elite, but many of whom are pathologically ill to boot.  I doubt most so-called Representatives in the House, Senate or White House are necessarily sociopathic, but they are pathologically ill in that they openly demonstrate the lack of ability to experience empathy, compassion or conscience in the way most Main Street people do.  This is why they so easily lie, pander, openly accept bribes and daily enable fraud, extortion, war and other evils, all justified as an entitled matter of course and always in the name of our overall public good.

Washington D.C. has degenerated since its inception into the organized crime capital of the world; the greatest money laundering operation ever seen on earth; ruled  by unseen Elite Dons of International Monopoly Finance, unconstitutionally managed by Corrupt Elected Pawns of the Elite Dons with enforcement thuggishly carried out by less entitled, though privileged, bureaucratic ruling class goons – all financed by the confiscated (progressive taxation) productivity and wealth of Main Street Americans and made possible via our uninformed, apathetic Main Street votes.  Our children’s birth right as granted by Divine Providence and once recognized by our precious Constitution, protected by the balance of power in three branches of government has vanished.  Its skeletal structure remains, but no longer breathes.  What we frequently and euphemistically refer to as incompetence or government waste is actually outright fraud, but to admit to this obscenity requires we recognize our own lack of vigilance and failure to responsibly self govern…so we look the other way…and tell each other that’s how it is.  The legacy we bequeath our children is irresponsibility, cowardice and dishonor – but we can change this.  It’s not a foregone conclusion.  We do not have to accept it.  We can refuse to participate in this inhuman charade.

If we as citizens continue accepting today’s pathologically ill, practiced career criminals as our malfeasant leaders openly set on bankrupting and destroying our supposedly self-governed Federal government for whatever incomprehensible agenda they work for; we can hardly expect anything positive for Main Street to develop and ought not be surprised when it doesn’t.  The pathologically ill miscreants now unconstitutionally ruling and  mis-managing our nation’s business, mis-using our precious armed forces as a private Elite police force for evil resource wars are not the problem.  We the people voting for carnivorous lunatics addicted to power and money over and over again are the problem.  Until we ourselves change within, start to pay attention and demand honesty in government, nothing can change.  We can be mad at R’s and D’s, but they are not the problem either.  No political leader, no pathetic R or D pawn, pathologically ill or not, can or will fix our broken country and restore our rapidly disappearing Constitutional freedoms and potential for peace and prosperity.  Our country belongs to we the people and we the people are 100% responsible for it – good, bad or otherwise.  We ourselves are the only force in this world who can fix what’s broken in the United States — but we will first have to recognize its brokenness, our own role in it and then choose to right its course to ORIGINAL PURPOSE and OPPORTUNITY, not for ourselves, but for the well being and the peace of future generations the world over.  It is a personal choice.

Poverty, famine, ill-health, dis-education, mediocrity, resource wars, imprisonment and lack of opportunity are all political choices.  There is more than enough wealth in the United States and the world for everyone and more can easily be created – but this cannot and will not materialize until we the people in America and across the world decide to take back individual responsibility for our own destiny, bolster one another generously and say NO to Mr. Global, his insane pawns and their hideously evil ideas.

    Wow Bruce this is so insightful to what has happened and what is happening still with America. I greatly admire your view and knowledge. It seems our Democracy clock has run out and it may be too late for us citizens to reverses the damage we have allowed for so long. I have heard it said that when our elected representatives can buy our votes with our own money it is game over. .
