First they banned us from meeting in person, then they banned us from meeting online. Next they just ban us altogether.
The night of long knives has begun.
We now have the rise of a tyrannical oligarchy in America, controlled by bad, inept and corrupt political actors and social media billionaires, all of them willful propagandists.
Welcome to Venezuelamerica.
With regard to democracy, according to the Ancient Greek philosophers upon whose thought our republic was built, and upon whose shoulders we stand, democracy always leads to tyranny.
Plato wrote that democracy leads to tyranny as a rule. That’s why the ancient Greeks and the American founders and framers alike advocated and formed republics, not democracies.
Do we and our children and grandchildren know the difference between a republic and a democracy?
Under a constitutional Republic, government is constrained by the constitution. There is a Rule of Law, based on natural laws and the sovereignty of the individual. The smallest minority in a republic is the individual, so individuals have a greater amount of freedom and protection than in any other system of government.
Under a Democracy, the power of government is unconstrained, and the Nation is sovereign over the individual. Laws come handed down from elite legislators and magistrates, not from the concepts of natural law. The Majority, or The Mob rules. The Majority can therefore rule over any minority.
Article IV Section 4 of the US Constitution, entitled “Republican Government” says:
“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive ((Branch) when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”
We are, in fact, one of only two constitutional republics in the world established since Ancient Greece that are formed and based primarily on the rule of natural law and not the rule of man’s law. (Switzerland, whose Canton political system was created by a Greek, Ioannis Kapodistrias, is the other.)
Those saying they are fighting for democracy in our nations and in the world are really fighting for socialist control and tyranny under man’s law, and they seek to erode and eliminate adherence to natural law and its binding precepts. They hide behind the misnomer of democracy to achieve their goals. They know that direct democracy leads to tyranny of the masses. That know that dividing the populace into racial, gender, religious, or ideological groups, and then fawning over these small segments of the population, pretending to be their champion, leads to tyranny of the minority. And of course they seek to put their political rivals and opposition into that minority and silence them.
Tyrants hate natural law rights because they are bound by them; handcuffed as they are from running roughshod over the citizens.
Natural Laws, which existed before man’s artificial laws, are divine and unalienable. They are, as our founders said, “endowed in us by our Creator.” They are baked in. Government has no jurisdiction over them.
Plutocrats seeking unlimited power chafe against natural law, as they themselves are severely limited by natural law. Such constrictions infuriate them, because plutocrats seek to do as they will, without concern for anyone else.
As Plato wrote:
When all are pursuing wealth, the most orderly and thrifty of all human natures become the richest.
Wealth and power is the sole objective of the oligarch. The wealthy have the power and authority. Wealth is glorified. Virtue and kindness are ignored.
From such excesses they create an entire class of drones, as in a beehive. The population of workers is feeding them and they become fatter and stronger, as their sole purpose of existence is to screw the queen (the system). We feed the drones to screw our system. Some have stingers and some don’t. The ones with the stingers are the ones who do the bad actions.
It is likely then, as in a bee hive, that the most successful workers are recognized as the most abundant source and supply of honey for the drones, and are seen by the drones as the easiest to extract (extort).
After all, how could one confiscate the property of those who have little?
The capitalistic class is therefore a rich pasture of nourishment for the worker bees and drones to harvest.
The oligarch adores money and power for its own sake. The end justifies the means. He doesn’t care about pedia; virtues, values, honor, dignity, or morality.
In fact, when the government becomes an enemy of the people, for example when the tax department is used as a weapon to punish political enemies, then virtue, honor and dignity are lost, and the people become concerned only with their own gain, sometimes at the expense of others.
For this system to succeed, however, wisdom and knowledge must be vilified and its sources (books, teachings, scripts) must be eliminated. That’s why scrolls and manuscripts and books were usually burned by tyrants in their quests for power since history began.
Now it’s a bit different. Storage of information in the Information Age is centralized and easily edited or deleted. It is far easier to erase knowledge and information on the digital cloud than to burn books as they did in the old days.
All Oligarchs fear putting wise people into leadership for fear of being exposed for what they are.
The population must be kept dumb, weak, distracted, and neutered. That’s why autocrats seek to restrict and confiscate weapons, tax people so they need to work harder, create inflation to erode individual accumulation of savings, and ban certain speech, writings, gatherings, and certain activities.
Bans and restrictions protect the leaders from overthrow, stop the spread or sharing of knowledge and ensure absolute power and control. The recent advent of the engineered CCP virus gave them just the fog cover they needed to distance and quarantine people and keep them from gathering in groups and sharing information.
Propaganda of course plays a key role. Shaping of news, creation of fake news stories, omission of facts, or sheer failure to report material stories by traditional news media are some common methods. The control of social media content and news feeds by companies like Facebook, and the blocking or elimination of posts and the outright bans on citizen users by companies like Facebook and Twitter, along with the manipulation of key search words and terms by companies like Google, Bling and Yahoo further ensures the control of information to suit the oligarch’s preferred narratives.
Redefinition and redirection of common terms in the lexicon and control of a captive media and entertainment complex is also used as a type of propaganda to further sway an ignorant, distracted public.
One example of this is how every socialist country calls itself a “democratic republic” yet curtails and controls its media and entertainment complexes. Most telling is that every socialist country begins by infringing upon the Natural Rights to speech and self-defense, arresting and prosecuting “hate speech” vilifying their political enemies (as Nazis, racists, misogynists, sexists, etc.) and infringing upon and confiscating all weapons so people cannot defend themselves against their captors, oppressors and self-appointed overlords.
Notice that while they do plenty of labeling and name-calling, they never call their enemies “communists”. That’s because although Fascism and Communism are both leftist Socialist ideologies, leftists don’t see communists as their enemies. The interesting wrinkle here is that they are actually practicing fascism, accusing conservatives of exactly what they themselves are doing. This is called psychological projection, and the leaders of the left have mastered it.
Let’s not forget too, that what we are being shown and what we are being told is often not anything near the truth. False flags and deceptions abound. Be aware and awake, Patriots.
There is a long history of false flag attacks and disinformation used to manipulate the minds of the people. Don’t be fooled. Don’t even believe your own eyes, because your eyes may be deceived as easily as your ears.
Television broadcasting of videos and photographs are easily altered and camera angles may be used to completely distort the truth to depict an entirely different narrative.
Often, things are not as they appear.
Try meeting a fashion model or «sex symbol» actor or actress in real life once and you will immediately know exactly what I mean. Almost none of them look the way they look in movies, in photos or on TV.
Reality is almost never the same as the fantasies we are being pitched daily by media, and the news media is the biggest spin doctor, all too often of dystopian fantasies and failed ideologies.
In the hands of despots and megalomaniacs, media becomes a weapon more powerful than an atomic bomb, and far more devastating. We just need to note what the manipulation of advertising and public relations, as studied by Austrian American, Edward Bernays, became in the hands of the Third Reich under Hitler, and under the Soviets and every other socialist regime since then.
“In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs it is the rule.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
“Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death”.
– Adolph Hitler
“Why of course the people don’t want war … But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship … Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”
– Hermann Goering, Nazi SS leader.
“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”.
– Josef Stalin
I received a message today from my ex-wife, who grew up under the Soviet regime in Ukraine. Her family were landowners, high ranking military and highly-educated intellectuals. All of her family possessions and properties were confiscated by the Bolsheviks. The men, Tzarist officers and generals, were summarily tortured and executed. The women and children were thrown into the streets.
Here’s what she wrote:
In the words of defected KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov, what we are witnessing here is a technique called Ideological Submersion… to change the perception of reality…
It’s a great brainwashing process that goes very slowly… it’s purpose is to demoralize the nation.. it takes just one generation of brainwashed students… They are programmed to think that way, and they will reject all other views, even if you present to them the rational and objective information, or the truth. The process of demoralization, once established, is complete, and irreversible.
Marxism doesn’t tolerate defenders of freedom and liberty….. In the future, these people will be squashed, crushed like cockroaches.
Look at what’s happening here right now. Exposure to true information means NOTHING anymore. So many wouldn’t know truth if it jumped up and bit them in the ass. That’s the tragic reality of demoralization.
Phase 2. Destabilization. It is happening…
The next phase is crisis. Despair. Impoverishment.
After crisis, the period of normalization… which is a cinical Soviet expression. False hopes are given. Lies are told.
I saw ALL these correlations with what was done to my (previous) country, every single step along the way. Step. By. Step. Phase. By. Phase. This is war, now in America. If we don’t rise up and fight it now, with all that we have, we will lose it. We have no place left to defect to – unless you want to live in Antarctica, with the penguins.”
Powerful words and insight. We don’t have the choice or luxury of ignoring this. We must fight.
But this is not conventional warfare. It is asymmetrical warfare. The enemy is hidden, sometimes among us. Sometimes in the highest ranks of government and military.
It is not enough to merely win an election, or to expose and overcome the sedition, treason and fraud. We must completely uproot and gut the foundations of leftism, aka “Progressivism,” rather than simply take down individual personalities. Otherwise, we just continually swap one tyrant for another…and unfortunately the tyrants have got a very deep bench and they have virtually unlimited resources to back, buy, blackmail and coerce candidates.
This is a battle for our minds. A battle of good vs. evil. It is no time to be timid and hide. We must fight. We have no choice. And we most certainly shall win. Zero Day approaches and it will be the dawn of a new awakening.
