Remember the good old days of self government?
Independence. Autonomy. Representative. These words haven’t been relevant in the United States of America for decades, certainly since I was born in 1979 — during the final death rattle of the criminal Carter Regime. And before. For so many years before.
Consider Federalist 39, where Madison makes a bold assertion:
“The first question that offers itself is, whether the general form and aspect of the government be strictly republican. It is evident that no other form would be reconcilable with the genius of the people of America; with the fundamental principles of the Revolution; or with that honorable determination which animates every votary of freedom, to rest all our political experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government. If the plan of the convention, therefore, be found to depart from the republican character, its advocates must abandon it as no longer defensible.”
You catch that? The importance of the Republic cannot be understated. It is foundational to the very idea of self-government. Anyone trying to move us away from the Republic is not our friend. Madison goes on:
“What, then, are the distinctive characters of the republican form? … It is ESSENTIAL to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion, or a favored class of it; otherwise a handful of tyrannical nobles, exercising their oppressions by a delegation of their powers, might aspire to the rank of republicans, and claim for their government the honorable title of republic.”
We are living this of Madison’s many but warranted fears.
The inevitable tyrants have stolen the power for themselves, the most unpopular political class modernity has had the unfortunate opportunity to experience. They just took it. They stopped counting, swapped votes, declared victory, and spent $500 million (of our dollars — the ones we work for while they wine and dine and conspire on how to further pence us over) on state-level security.
Why do they need so much state-level security? Because they stole the election and they are terrified of the moment the masses of normies figure it out.
But, sure, self government. They’ve practically repealed the first amendment — at least that’s my conclusion after being silenced, suppressed and threatened during this fascist wet dream.
Everyone I know who has been involved in politics since Election Day is actively expecting the FBI show up. That goes double for the folks in DC on Jan 6. Even my good friend’s 84 year-old mom, who marched with us like a champ on the 6th, believes the FBInsects are coming knocking.
Can’t blame us. They arrested Simone Gold. They arrested Joe Biggs. They raided and trashed the homes of six Patriots I know from California who marched in peace on January 6th. They weren’t even near the Capitol, but that didn’t matter. The feds burst in, trashed the houses, and confiscated…wait for it…a Trump flag.
As an Originalist, I’m sitting here watching the brazen deployment of communism across my Republic and thinking, “What the pence is going on?”
Back to self government, I want you to consider how many institutions sit between you and self-government. I offer three examples and some hard truths below.
First, of course, is The Party. Notice I didn’t say, “Parties.” Flashback to the 1992 Presidential elections, where the parties gave us HW and Monica’s boyfriend. The people tried to pick Ross Perot, but, “NO! A third party candidate? What madness! How could you throw away your vote and split the Right! You’re guaranteeing the Left a win!”
For those who weren’t around or don’t remember, that last bit was the mainstream mockingbird narrative during that campaign. And given how incestuous we now know those two crime families to be, Perot was the right choice, the populist choice, the People’s choice.
Truth: Left and Right is a contrived conflict to divide the American People. It is a PsyOp. The goal is to ensure The Party always wins. The Party is the first step removing you from self government.
Now consider Technology. Of course, the device you’re reading this on comes to mind. Especially now that we know how manipulated and controlled our technology experiences really are — social, search, networking and Comms. Social discourse is essential to the free market of ideas self government requires.
And with the device comes the data…and the data tracking, storage, analysis, visualization. Our phones are a golden goose for the tech companies. Data is incredibly valuable, and Amazon, Google and Microsoft have pretty much all of it. Data Privacy is a myth (since well before the vile Patriot Act that The Party forced upon us. Go read about J. Edgar Hoover).
There is also a much more direct Technology standing between you and self government, and that is of course vulnerable election technologies that have been totally exposed as enabling fraud in 2020, 2018, 2016, and who knows how many other election cycles. And The Party is now trying to codify the process and methods used in 2020 into law. Since they brazenly stole all the lawmaking bodies, they will. There is no one left to oppose them…except us: the great, unwashed basket of deplorables.
Our technologies today are conspiring to control us and keep us in our tiny boxes. Look at how many rules there are now. Fact checks, suspensions and purges, oh my!
Truth: We are living in the prequel to Westworld. If you haven’t watched Westworld do so immediately, and pay particular attention to Season 3 where you discover the world that created the park. If people realized how close we are to that reality, we would be in a Walking Dead kind of reality faster than you can say, “Ethical Artificial Intelligence.”
How about our American Education system, that shining beacon of mediocrity on display for the world. Our national (and extremely expensive) collective race to the bottom!
The principles of self government are no longer taught in most American schools. Critical thinking is out too. This is a big part of why I started homeschooling my kids. I’ll go into that more in a future post.
Kids are taught to obey authority and comply with all their demands. Don’t question these demands. Just comply. Good girl.
The sheer number of thought crimes that dominate our current headlines should frighten anyone who reveres the Constitution…or the Bible.
Kids today aren’t taught how to navigate and explore the word, they’re taught what to think about it. Bring on the Ministry of Truth (which is now seriously being floated in His Fraudulency’s Regime).
Now combine that with generations who have been conditioned since preschool to comply and (literally) toe The Party line.
Truth: American Education is cranking out compliant young morons who think the world is there to appease their fragile little minds. Poor, oblivious fools who need safe spaces against ideas, who demand participation trophies and insta-promotions, and who are intellectually incapable of navigating the marketplace of ideas in any way other than bull-in-china-shop. Idea seem scary. Mongo no like scary idea. Smash! (Cancel. Delete. Exterminate.)
This vision of our central planners is working so well, don’t ya think? We unite on the mythical left OR right to battle each other in whatever scandal The Party cooks up for us. They watch, stir the pot, and rig the game. The Party always wins.
Here is my final Truth for this piece: We need to fight the big bad in this meth-addicted hunger game.
It’s the government, man.
