Collectivist Anarchists such as Mikhail Bakunin (Statism and Anarchy, 1873), along with Communists Karl Marx, Frederich Engels  (Communist Manifesto-1848; Capital, Volume 1-1867, Volume 2-1885, Volume 3-1894) and others were justly disturbed by the cruel, sometimes vicious exploitation of working people they believed to be the direct, inevitable result of capitalism at the hands of the bourgeoisie.  Without getting into  complex socioeconomic theories debated among pioneers of Socialism, Anarchism, Syndicalism, etc., let’s agree that generally speaking, the prevailing discourse at the time (19th Century) was wage earner (proletariat) versus wage provider (capitalist/bourgeoisie) and the ensuing class struggle.

Marx didn’t so much promote Communism as predict it.  Some of Marx’s predictions came to pass, but much of his perceived future came down through history very differently.  For example;  Marx correctly foresaw the inevitable rise of monopoly capitalism, but the destruction of small business and wage earner wealth did not wholly diminish as he thought it would.  While corrupt monopolies did flourish, small and medium businesses also flourished and worker earnings grew significantly.  It turns out, all boats tend to rise under free market capitalism in spite of corruption and unfair advantage.  The revolution never materialized, but the despicable evolution is alive and well, though of a very different nature than Marx thought.

Marx and others opined that the proletariat would violently revolt or as Bernstein, Gramsci and others opined, non-violently evolve with the workers taking control of the State; destroying private property ownership; ending inequality; finally ending the need for a State entirely; the result being a prosperous paradise.  Marx and Engels realized that the State as an intermediate step would for some period of time have to be frighteningly powerful, but then would magically go away as it realized it was no longer necessary.  What Karl Marx envisioned happening, up to the powerful State part, in my humble opinion, did in fact happen, is happening – just not at all the way he imagined.

It never occurred to Marx that the bourgeoisie, or as I call them today, the Elite, the world’s dynastic families, the Oligarchy, the Plutocracy – would identify Communism or more generally Collectivism as the ideal mechanism for obtaining total monopoly control of all governments, resources, people and wealth on earth.  Marx never saw that coming.  His students and academic adherents still don’t see it; but the Elite see it and use it perfectly to their greedy advantage.  Marx’s important work provided the Elite, the world’s largest, most corrupt transnational monopoly owners a road map, a business plan by which they could hope to rule the world.  And as we can all see, they are trying their inbred best to make that happen.

Main Street citizens, for the most part are busy raising families, earning a living, recreating and so forth.  They don’t pay much attention to political ideology nor its impact on legislation, regulation, taxation or their lives.  The inbred Elite on the other hand, may have more money than brains or honor, but they do pay attention.  The Elite realized in about a minute that Marx’s vision could be a wonderful thing for them – if they could manage history as a self-fulfilling prophesy with themselves as controllers of the State rather than workers.  Nothing makes control of populations easier than top-down, centrally controlled government.

The Bolshevik Revolution, Mao’s Revolution and the spread of international communism, now more digestibly called socialism have been and still are entirely funded by the world’s wealthiest Elite; are supported by the Elite through their Foundations, Institutes, think tanks, study groups, associations and of course, as Lenin so aptly exclaimed, the useful idiots of academia.  Good intentions are oft used against us.

MONOPOLY CANNOT SURVIVE FREE MARKET CAPITALISM.  Monopoly requires assistance and protection, usually provided through the wheel chair of corrupt government regulation and taxation, in order to destroy potential competition and provide free reign for price fixing, government policy manipulation, etc.  Marx inadvertently handed the keys for world domination off to the same Elite he so despised;  then we the people gave them the car…the train….the boat….the plane…and everything else to go with all that – and we don’t even realize it.  We think we’re fighting it.

The so-called New World Order (NWO) isn’t a conspiracy.  It’s an effective BANKING/OIL/WAR BUSINESS PLAN operating in plain sight every day of every week.  A plan whose evil strength lies in its ability to go unnoticed; to masquerade as something it’s not, while cloaking it’s impoverishing, enslaving nature in a media cloak of propaganda, entrainment and conditioning.

Capitalism allows for monopoly, but discourages it.  Collectivism not only allows monopoly; but protects and nourishes it.  It’s time as voters we recognize we’re being had.  R’s and D’s are all wholly owned subsidiaries of the Elite Oligarchy.   Main Street has zero representation in D.C.  Transnational monopolies have 500% of the ears in D.C.  That means our elected and appointed officials are usually bribed more than once, hence more than 100% corruption.

I’m not sure how we’re going to fix this, but I do know we Main Street folk better start discussing it and we best exercise a bit of individual, free thinking before casting our 2106 votes in November.  As the late, Aaron Russo said and I’m paraphrasing; Quit being good R’s and D’s.  Start being good Americans.  We owe this to ourselves and the generations to come.  Let’s take back self-governance together as the good, decent people we are.

Quote:   “The goal of international communism is not to destroy Western international debt capitalism.  The goal of international communism is to enslave mankind at the behest of Western international debt capitalism.”  {R.E. McMaster, The Reaper}  I found this quote in Eustace Mullins’ book, The World Order.  Mr. Mullins adds that if we were to understand only one thing regarding today’s world situation, it should be this.

In my world, for the purposes of conversation anyway, the particular -ism doesn’t matter.  Monopoly Capitalism (which has nothing in common with free markets), Fascism (the current American system), Socialism or Collectivism, all twisted sisters, result in centralized power, centrally planned control and to the extent employed, limit or eliminate individual liberty for the many at the hands of the privileged few.  Recorded history, should you find any unredacted (which rules out all text books), demonstrates this to be inarguable.  Many of us salt-of-the-earth Americans still believe we’re free – and I guess if you accept taxation without Main Street representation, government forced purchase of monopoly health insurance scams, limits on how large a soda you can purchase, etc. – well OK.  I respect your fantasy.  If you suspect you may not be as free as the fantastical broadcasts of MSNBC, Fox News, NPR and other propaganda outlets parrot; and if you’re still considering casting a vote on one of our electronic fraud machines;  you may want to continue reading.

Ms. Catherine Austin Fitts (https://solari.com/blog/), world leader in support of practical strategies for strengthening local economies is on what she refers to as the “de-centralization team”.  99.9% of all folks working in Washington D.C. on the other hand, as coerced by Mr. Global and friends are solidly on the “centralization team”.  I bring this to our attention because it’s in our best interest on Main Street to grasp the concept.

If any political candidate running for national office in the House of Representatives, U.S. Senate or White House is on the centralization team (CT), it doesn’t matter which pandering Party rhetoric they parrot because they simply are not able to represent Main Street citizens.  By virtue of whichever special monopoly interests provide their campaign funds and media coverage – their Representation has already been purchased and is no longer available to us as Main Street voters.  Doesn’t the Bible say something about not being able to serve two masters?  Well in the real world, that’s true.  If you work for Mr. Global, you don’t work for anyone else and all international conglomerate monopolies belong to Mr. Global and his fearful minions, so this isn’t complicated.

So, the good news is, you can spot a political goon simply by observing whether they support centralization policies of any kind on any front, foreign or domestic.  If they do, they’re bad for Main Street freedom and prosperity.  The bad news is, I don’t personally know of a single nationally known politico running for the House, Senate or President that is not on the centralization team (CT).  There are a couple of healthy grass roots unknowns, but relative to national news – none.  Not a single one.  The ones we know about have already been bought – that’s precisely why we know about them.  Real candidates that might actually live long enough to Represent Main Street have to be searched out.

In other words, imagining that Bernie will be better than Hillary or that Cruz will be better than Bernie for Main Street- well, that’s a fantasy.  They’re all owned by and Represent the same privileged people from the same dynastic families and that ain’t any of us here on Main Street.  To make matters worse; Bernie, Hillary, Cruz, Trump, etc and even Mr. Global aren’t the problem anyway;  we are the problem.

The U.S. and world economy are driven by the hands of integrity challenged, Elite dynastic family members through banking and other interconnected monopolies using drugs, war, energy, space, food and water as fuel sources.  For example, more than $1 trillion narcotics dollars annually are laundered globally (why did you think we’re in Afghanistan protecting the opium poppies?) – the lion’s share of it through the U.S. economy.  In other words, should we close our Southern border, turn off the narco-dollar spigot the U.S. economy would grind to a halt, the Federal government would shut down and our 401 K’s would evaporate.

My point is, if we’re using recreational drugs, eating Monsanto products or supporting international conglomerate monopolies in other ways – then we ourselves are supporting and enriching the system that terrorizes our politicians and works daily to place the middle class into feudal bondage through our dumbed down education system, discriminatory tax system, dictatorial regulation, deceitful religiosity and whatever else.

As another example, most of us have heard of the financial derivative problem threatening the world economy.  There are several kinds of derivatives, one of which consists of bundling problematic home mortgages, some of which are in or will be in default (subprime usually) and many of which don’t even exist.  There are counties in the United States that have three times more recorded residential mortgages than there are homes to mortgage.  This is pure fraud and it’s happening from sea to shining sea.  Ask yourself how many Main Street home buyers, real estate agents, mortgage bankers, title agents, assessors, lawyers, CPA’s, etc. are directly involved in this for it to transpire?  How many thousands of Main Street people are looking the other way?  We are the problem.  We can hardly blame Mr. Global for bank greed because without Main Street participation, it couldn’t possibly happen.

I’m not sure how we deal with integrity challenged politicians or wide spread electronic vote fraud, but there are things we can do today to start making inroads toward taking back our lives and eventually our freedom and government from the Oligarchy’s Ruling Class Attack Dogs.  THINK LOCAL, LOCAL, LOCAL.  First, eat good stuff.  Buy local, organic, non-GMO food products whenever possible.  Make it our business to know what monopolies are producing what unhealthy food products, abusing animals, poisoning us, etc. and do not buy their crap.  If you can barter locally, barter.  Do not cheat on your taxes.  The REVENUERS will get you for that, so don’t be foolish and go there.  It’s a fight we cannot win – yet.  If you bank, do not use BIG BANKS.  Use local credit unions or local independent banks if you can find them.  Don’t buy new cars.  Fix your old car and keep it running as best you can.  Don’t enlist in the military any more.  When the goons crank up their military draft, say NO THANK YOU.  If we refuse to kill each other, war ends today.  Don’t live in fear.  If Tavistockian Zombies attack America they’ll have to deal with us on Main Street face to face.  It won’t end well for the invaders and they know it, so don’t buy the fear nonsense and give your guns away to some smiling moron.  Peace is built on strength, never weakness.  The Second Amendment is important and so is your 12 Gauge.

Anyway, while you’re watching election rhetoric and yelling at the TV till November 2016, think about what we just considered and observe carefully what talking heads are saying and how they say it – or don’t say it as the case may be.  It’s all there to see if we pay attention.  God Bless everyone on every Main Street across the world – and while we’re at it – say a prayer or two for members of those dynastic Oligarchy families.  They live in their own private hell and pathological or not, they’re people too.

 

 

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.

Our children today, are being conditioned not HOW to think, but WHAT to think, by ignorant drones, themselves heavily conditioned pawns we still mistakenly refer to as teachers – that individualism, responsibility, liberty, corporations, free market economies, the pursuit of excellence and capitalism are bad.  Government is good our children are taught.  No distinction is ever made between actual free market corporations and the immense wealth they freely generate for all participants in any economy;  and the greedy, corrupt, power hungry, international conglomerate monopolies that coerce all wealth within reach to themselves through control of collectivist governments – which in turn enable the continuing monopoly.

All monopolies despise free markets or any kind of competition.  For reasons I don’t get, not even so-called conservative pundits make any distinction between legitimate corporate business and centrally controlled monopoly; or the perverted form of reverse fascism monopoly breeds.  Typically, for the Marxist Left, all corporations are bad;  for the Establishment Right, all corporations are good.  The truth is far removed from either position.  The truth requires discernment and discernment is no longer encouraged or taught.

This distinction from free markets should be made because monopoly is liberty’s terminal, lymphatic cancer.  Monopoly promotes top down, centrally controlled governments, dictatorships where possible, because these socialist style governments are easily manipulated, managed and used to whatever end is desired by the monopolies currently holding sway.  The people are conditioned to become hard working wealth creation tools, easily convinced that the promise of security is better than actual wealth earned.

Most of us rarely realize that true security lies within our own minds, hands and abilities as ordained by Divine Providence.  Once collectivist tax rates exceed 25% or 30%, the possibility of amassing wealth and/or security is eliminated sans a precious few exceptions, which are usually and quickly absorbed into the Elite.  Microsoft is a prime example as it loudly promotes insane Agenda 21 enslavement vehicles such as Common Core realizing that conditioned thought is an inescapable prison requiring no walls, fences or bars – a collectivist dream.

Amazingly, many wealthy American people living beyond anything Royalty ever dreamed of, successful via opportunities offered by our American capitalist system, hypocritically praise Russia, China, Cuba and other human disaster zones, while demonizing the very free market system that gave them their own public voice.  How many movie millionaires originated in China, Cuba or Venezuela over the past 75 years?  How many writers?  Poets?  Producers?  Internet moguls?  Computer moguls?  Automobile manufacturers?  Missionaries?  Spiritual healers?  Restaurateurs?  Journalists?  Store owners?  Clearly collectivist conditioning inhibits the ability to think clearly, if at all.

Collectivist history stomps deeply repetitive, bloody, hobnailed, foot prints of subjugation, starvation, impoverishment, imprisonment, torture, fear and murder into the backs of working men and women.  Simultaneously, collectivist Elite Masters and the ignorant government thugs doing their hellaciously treasonous work redistribute the wealth of hard working decent people to themselves, their pawns and insider friends.  The promised security of the proletariat never manages to materialize.  Spiritual devastation, hopelessness and mediocrity run rampant through the population – until it collapses on itself – usually three to four generations at most.  Collectivism is not sustainable.  It’s astonishing to see so many so-called environmentalists, foolishly promoting collectivist agendas as solutions to problems.  History shows collectivist thought to be the central core of most societal and environmental  problems – never the solution.  Tavistockian Conditioning is a powerful tool indeed.

Capitalism and free markets promote equal opportunity, personal responsibility, generosity and provide an environment in which healthy spiritual growth can thrive and flourish.  Freedom cannot exist without personal responsibility, love and generosity.  Capitalism creates an environment where each of us can choose to become captain of our choices, opportunities and outcomes;  and accept responsibility for those choices.  This is spiritual nirvana on earth.  It’s as good as it gets in this physical life we share together.

Collectivism on the other hand, blindly, inhumanely and destructively dictates outcomes and by doing so, eliminates personal responsibility and choice.  Since no two people are equal in ability in any one particular area as we each have unique gifts; outcomes can never be raised to a higher or optimum level of quality.  Outcomes can only be forced to the lowest common denominator.  Mediocrity becomes not only the norm, but the only possibility.  The brilliant are dumbed down.  The strong are made weak.  Personal excellence in any field of endeavor is banished, even punished as success is deemed unfair under the obscene decrees of social justice and political correctness.

Capitalism is the pursuit of excellence and personal responsibility unleashed within the joyful symphony of life.  History proves this and we can live this history should we choose to.

Collectivism is the muzzle of mediocrity and the iron anchor of spiritual growth weighing down and finally drowning the amazing possibilities of life until nothing of value can be heard or felt.

Which do we choose for ourselves and our children?  Which do we stand for?

Discussion showing how simple arithmetic demonstrates and predicts 100% consistent failure of any and all mathematically unsustainable, utopian Nanny State systems such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.  A fifth grader can easily see the inevitable failure of collectivist systems.

SS From 1970 – 2011

The hyperlink above will take you to U.S. Social Security demographic info compiled by 1600 Watch.  This data is referenced in the following video presentation.

ANSWER: YES!
Collectivism in any guise is based on the general idea or MYTH that many can better take care of the few than the few can take care of themselves.  It’s warm and fuzzy; feels good;  makes for wonderfully disingenuous sound bites;  and in all of human history has not only, never worked, but ALWAYS leads directly to OVERBEARING government coercion.   In extreme cases the coercion is followed by outright abuse of power, imprisonment, torture, starvation and murder of the very same citizens the system was supposedly going to help.

I am aware of no exception to this general collectivist scenario, though admittedly there are degrees of coercion and the time to collapse is variable.  Somehow, under socialism, the Elite insiders and their obedient Ruling Class – that is to say the FEW – always end up controlling the MANY – just opposite the false promise.

Setting aside the murderous abuses found with extreme cases such as Russia, China, Cuba, Cambodia, etc.: the question becomes, WHY can’t socialist, centrally planned programs ever work – even when intentions are good?

Marxism / socialism / collectivism cannot and do not work for one very simple reason.  EVERY PERSON BORN, DIES.  It’s that simple and no ideology can change it.

All the ideology in the world;  the most complicated algorithms in the world;  the biggest hearts in the world;  cannot change the fact that every person born will die.  We are stuck with a one to one (1:1) ratio in the matter of physical life versus physical death.  On planet earth, within the construct of the physical world as we know it; each life converges on its own death.  Therefore, the many become the few over time and Nanny State ARITHMETIC simply does not work.

Regardless how the collectivist program is envisioned and structured; regardless the good or bad intentions; the population demographic ultimately converges on 1:1.  Now, since we have always, at least so far on earth, had some number of folks living – we don’t actually reach 1:1, which would be extinction.  However, as we approach 4:1; then 3:1 and finally 2:1; the wonderfully envisioned Nanny State system fails – every time.  It cannot survive itself.

All Nanny State concepts such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, etc. fall victim to this convergence and are unsustainable because of it.  There is no methodology or ideology able to overcome the physical reality of life converging on death for every person born on earth.

As an example, the link below shows the population statistics of America’s Social Security program from 1970 through 2011.  Please realize that all collectivist style programs fall victim to the ebb and flow of population growth and ultimately fail for this same reason.

SS From 1970 – 2011

You’ll notice from the chart that in 1945 there were 41.9 workers contributing to the system for each beneficiary.  By 1970, just 25 years later, the system declined to 3.6 workers contributing for each beneficiary.  In 2010 we were down to 2.9 workers per beneficiary.  In comparing rates of population growth and decline across the globe, we find variation in growth rates, but the differences are not significant.  We also find localized discontinuities resulting from war, famine, disease, etc., but these are also insignificant over time.  The fact is – every person born, dies; and neither politics nor socioeconomic theories change that.

Even leaving birth and death aside, let’s keep it simple.  Say a community has a total of 100 police and firemen employed.  They set up a retirement program whereby each worker will contribute 5.00% of their income toward the retirement and health care of 20 fellow police and firemen, now retiring.  Looks great.  Years later, the 100 police and firemen are ready to retire.  To support all 100 of them at the  same contribution rate of 5.00%, the community will need 2,000 police and firemen contributing.  When the 2,000 retire, at the 5.00% contribution rate, 40,000 working police and firemen will be needed to support those retired.  Since there will never even be 2,000 working police and firemen, the contribution rate must be upped to impossible levels.  The workers cannot support the non-workers.  Each must take steps to support him or her self.

Nanny State programs are simply not mathematically viable nor sustainable.  We can tweak them and argue about this or that improvement, but after four generations – the population gig is up, reality comes a’ knockin’ and the program fails.  This fact is not arguable;  it just is.

The sustainable alternative to inevitable Nanny State failure is, of course, free market capitalism and individual self sufficiency to the maximum extent possible.  Capitalism is basically anarchy with rules and it works.  As governments grow;  freedom, self sufficiency and personal sustainability decline.  The Constitutional Republic of the United States bolsters free markets and the individual pursuit of excellence.  This system has provided more opportunity for more people and lifted more people out of poverty and hopelessness than any socioeconomic system in world history.  Period.  That is historic fact.  There is no other country or group of countries, or any other system that has created more wealth for more people than has the United States of America with its Constitutional recognition of human unalienable rights.

The arithmetic of population clearly demonstrates that abandonment of the individual to the collective ultimately fails everyone every time.  The only sustainable solution is maximum self sufficiency, whereby, the few disabled and helpless can easily be accommodated and cared for by the spiritually healthy, freely self sustained.

Russia and its collective Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (U.S.S.R.) collapsed in less than three painful generations (Assuming a generation to be 25-years.) from 1917 to 1989; after starving and murdering more than 40 million people to force their doomed system in place.  China starved and murdered more than 60 million to establish their brutally failed system and now is turning to a limited form of state-capitalism in an effort to save itself from a second revolution and collapse.  More than 75% of the Chinese people have received zero benefit from Communism and live in abject, utterly hopeless poverty, though remain conveniently out of sight through efforts of the Globalist media, conditioned socialists all.  Europe is headed for the same demise as most European countries are already flirting with bankruptcy, but at a slightly slower rate as Europe has not gone to full on Communism, or 100% government.

It is imperative for the American middle class to realize that the current Nanny State track of the United States government leads to disaster.  It is not a question of “IF”, but “WHEN” we fail and the arithmetic shows that four generations is about the sustainable limit.  We the Baby Boomers are the third generation and we are beginning to fail.  Proceeding stubbornly and ignorantly down this same collectivist path yields our children, the fourth generation, a future of certain poverty and chaos.

Capitalism and Constitutional Republics can be tweaked and improved.  Socialism is simply doomed to arithmetic failure.

A program like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) can never be fixed.  Delaying it cannot fix it.  Remodeling it cannot fix it.  The entire concept is simply ludicrous with 10,000 people per day turning 60 years of age and with 95% of all lifetime medical expenses typically incurred during the final decade of life.

Survival of the American Dream requires facing reality.  It requires responsible voters who will elect Representatives having the intestinal fortitude to deal with real life and not get caught up in some cowardly utopian farce masquerading as caring.  The Dream only lives for our children and grandchildren if we ourselves have the courage and forseight to live the Dream ourselves.  Collectivism is not a dream.  Collectivism is a nightmare.
