When I see where events have brought us, in the past year, I see that people still do not learn the lessons of history. For all of the commotion that has taken place, it is still the same old thing. Human nature is a creature of habit. All of the protests we are seeing now are going around in the same old rut.
The financial news thesae days is a lot of history being repeated. European countries are going the way of the nations in Africa and South America, before them. The objective of Commerce is always conquest. The driving force behind commerce is the fatal flaw in human nature that brings people ro depend on government to rob their neighbors, for their material gain. We now live in a world of organized looting.
Fiat Currency vs. Real Money
I don’t know why people do the things that they already know won’t work. I suppose that values get skewed by material comfort and convenience. Most people have never had to walk to a landfill, looking for something to eat, that won’t kill them. Most people have never slept outdoors, unless they were on a camping trip, with better accommodations available to them. A life unchallenged by want can develop into delusion.
Separation of Bureaucracy and Humanity
July 13th, 2011
The contrast between Bureaucracy and Humanity isn’t always obvious, but when it is, it seems to jump out at us. In public situations the difference jumps out at us and we recognize that something is very wrong. It feels like we are flying an airplane and the controls suddenly start working backwards.
7 July A.D. 2011
The article below is by R.K. Blacksher. It was posted 5 July 2011. In the link at strike-the-root.com, he lists his occupation as “Drone.” Creative, anyway.
This author prefers Pat Shannan’s lesson in the matter. The term “constitution-ist” is the proper description of one who supports, promotes a/the “constitution,” as contrasted with the term “constitution-al-ist,” which is one who supports a/the “constitutional,” which term IS a noun, and, in some parts of the country, that noun refers to the function of the last part of the alimentary canal. What Blacksher is saying, in his way, is that there are no political solutions.
Here is the very last concept in this piece: “People cannot free themselves if they do not believe they are enslaved. People need to stop trying to free themselves through politics and start trying to free themselves from politics.”
Clearly, Blacksher does not yet understand, completely, the nature of the problem, because slaves have zero authority to obligate themselves or their property commercially. It’s precisely because there is NO slavery that the present “funny money” system “works.” Said another way, involuntary bondage had to go in order for it to be replaced with our present condition of voluntary bondage.
Slaves can’t get credit cards or open retirement accounts or purchase land or cars, etc. Only those with the legal capacity to enter into agreements may engage in even the basics of commercial activity. In the same way that children and medically incompetent people have no “capacity” to bind themselves commercially, slaves have no capacity to bind themselves commercially.
Where one finds few legal remedies for involuntary bondage, given that such law exists in a society that finds it moral and acceptable for one human being to “own,” as property, another human being (which concept is all throughout Scripture), one has all kinds of remedies for Voluntary Bondage. Voluntary Bondage is the by-product of our present commercial system, in which we’re seduced, through our ignorance (unawareness) of our present legal reality, into binding, commercial obligations that are enforced in such a way as to make us think that the authority relied upon is law. Voluntary Bondage is something over which we have 100% control. Thus, on the flip side of that same coin, we have only ourselves to blame.
To play the game of politics is to pretend that the politicians are “the problem.” Thus, by changing them, the problem may be fixed via a different group of politicians who will then rewrite or just “delete” the offensive, oppressive, police-state “statutes.” Fortunately, that’s not how the present system functions. Since no politician in any office can ever compel anyone to sign up for any “gotcha agreement,” by which we impale ourselves on the horns of Voluntary Bondage, no politician, in or out of office, is “the” problem.
Very well said.

“Playing Both Ends”
Playing both ends against the middle may be standard procedure in the Corporatist philosophy, but it is a very dangerous practice. In every account of conflict, both sides discover eventually, that they only thought they had the deal that they wanted. The strange wrinkle in human nature that puts diplomacy on the backbone of corruption allows wiggle room to change the meaning of words and terms of the deal. So it is, in the Corporatist political structure. The faces and speeches may change, but the fact remains that conflicting and often contradictory demands can not be resolved. Anger management doesn’t work, here.
We see examples of the vertical failures in public policy, every day. In every area, social, economic and political, the top-down edicts from the administration don’t work at street level. They never did, without a military threat. The location becomes secondary to the factional and sectarian private agendas within government. Government doesn’t need a middle ground to play the ends against. As current agendas play out, an unresolved debate is sufficient. While factions get bogged down in details, no agreement is required to commit theft. Corruption is made difficult to identify if no terms are set. As things simmer along, the current global economic crisis will see the objectives of Commerce implemented in classic Corporatist fashion.
Whether it be in the board rooms of corporations or in the international realm of diplomacy, the wheels of blockade and embargo, invasion and conquest will grind on to their destination, subjugation. The machine of global Corporatism constantly seeks more fuel to run it’s anti-human machine. As diplomacy gets bogged down in scraping embarrassment from it’s shoe, the battle for land and resources will certainly intensify. Property is more likely to be stolen than blown up. Domestically, we see the nationalization of industries. Internationally, we see growing Corporatist domination at the hands of the central banks’ hatchet man, the United Nations. The trap that humanity finds itself in requires people to seek escape and independence. Outside motivation comes too late to be of value. Such basic needs are only successful if acted on by internal decision in each individual. To walk away from the crowd may seem uncertain at the moment, but it is the time-honored and proven path to liberty.
Corporatism tells everyone what they want to hear, ignoring obvious and impossible incongruities, contradictions and public exposure. People are so desperate to believe the “Yes, we can” that they go deaf when history says, “No, you can’t”. For 40 years, we have heard administrations quote Hitler, Stalin and Roosevelt in the spirit of Corporatism. The way each of their labor camp systems divided the world each had their unique charms, but they all worked toward the goal of an Incorporated purpose for a conscripted populace. Individual autonomy and self-determination are now cornered fugitives in the abandoned building that once was America. Because Corporatism sees each generation as a crop of human resources, it is naturally destructive. It is no compliment to be seen as a renewable resource. For the individual, it is a total loss system. If people are satisfied with finding nobility and fulfillment in corporate sacrifice, let them have their fate. The test is whether or not American principles will overcome that totalitarian lie.
We only know the sequence of events and judgments of historians as they are taught to us. We should be greatly disturbed by every instance that requires us to turn our backs on our heritage. The respect for life and independence that was once a given is replaced by a hunger for Corporatist conquest in the marketplace. Unfortunately, the fear of poverty keeps people playing the debt game, trying to break even. That fear causes people to act against their interests. They have chosen more bureaucratic intervention and intrusion in their lives, taking on more trouble than they began with.
When systems break down, they drag people with them. The assets of the individual are then liquidated and absorbed into the corporate State, for “the greater good”, as embodied in the survival of the corporation. Do we seek life, or do we stay in our seats, frozen in fear? “Refugee” is just a polite term for “casualty”. There is no justification for abiding in such a circumstance. There are no neutral positions. There are only predators and prey. Generations have been taught to accept the latter, without dissent. The independent option is systematically and institutionally discouraged. We are taught to submit ourselves meekly, as spoils of war.
How do we reach the independent goal of life in liberty, seemingly just over the horizon? Obviously, the Corporatist structure has no interest in a freer, better world, in the future. Taking a harvest from it, yes; being restrained by any moral precept, no. We are taught that participation is mandatory. At present, the cannibalistic nature of Corporatism limits general predation. The bureaucratic conflicts among power structures seek bigger prey than the individual citizen. For the little fish, a barracuda is more dangerous than a Great White shark. This is the state of existence in the experience of humanity. America has been a rare, sheltered cove in the storms of war. To weather the present storm, we must be diligent in our training in the training that previous generations rejected. We may have been deceived, but people who discover that they have been lied to are most persistent in pursuit of the truth. Corporatist power is always directed at limiting the range of thought and silencing the voice of free people. A thief, caught in a lie, always resorts to murder. Revision of keep witnesses buried. So too will guilt build inn the corporate structure until it collapses or it’s components devour each other.Every empire in history has suffered this fate. It is the fragments that sprouted to torment future generations. Those who live by predation, are consumed by it. The path through the destruction is there for those who seek it. Answers only work by living them. Fortunately, we still have a will to live that keeps us moving. Survival is one victory. Independence is another. Repeatedly stringing those victories together is the pursuit of happiness.
Knowing the history of the bureaucratic hardship imposed by the state of emergency in Agriculture didn’t help ease the reading of the article on the front page of the June 3rd, 2009 Denver Post. That state of emergency was declared in 1934 and is in effect, today. The article, titled “More farmers losing hope”, by Miles Moffeit told the story of financial hardship, stress from uncertain markets and of all things, a suicide prevention hotline for farmers. A study of agricultural history in the U. S. specifically, and the world in general, details the Corporatist seizure of the ability to produce food. When power and control override independence, we see this stress become the norm. At one time, farms were profitable and didn’t need the banks for anything. With the consolidation of the past 75 years, farmers are now the odd group on the outside, looking in. This is why farmers are under so much stress. Just as on every other inhabited continent, the corporate war is against them. The first action of tyrannical governments is to seize control of food production and use it as a weapon. As agriculture goes, so goes the nation. Forget General Motors.
The National Organization for Raw Materials (N. O. R. M.) http://www.normeconomics.org compiles a yearly table of production data, by area of production. It is a very good history of economic activity. The numbers are certainly very down in these days. With farmers being squeezed out and forced of the land, the work that should be the strength of the nation is under severe attack. While the urban public fails to defend their rural neighbors from corporate commercial attack, they should stop and think about where their food comes from. We must get past ignoring issues until they become a crisis. People will certainly take notice when food either is in short supply or costs twice what it did, a year ago.
Obviously, local independence is in our best interest. When the bottom lines of the banks became more important than the natural order of production and local distribution, the war was on for control of markets and land. This is why we must support farmers markets and local barter systems for goods and services. When we began accepting the paper Ponzi scheme, we became enslaved and exploited. We must understand that the fate of our neighbors is inseparable from our own. Looking for toll – free numbers to call or grant applications to fill out is a dead end in the same debt swamp that caused the original problem.
After decades of sowing debt and reaping poverty, the lesson should be clear. All of the experts with defective educations have led us to the edge of economic conquest by foreign interests. Consumers and farmers must defend each other from the attacks of the Globalist invaders. For too long, the combination of business and politics has invited invasion. Only by direct, local interaction can the outside oppression be excluded. Before Corporatist foreign agendas put farmers out of business and take food off the tables of America’s families, repudiation of the bureaucratic corporate structure must come.
We make choices, every day. At some point, our daily lives must surely must give rise to the need for better results. When do we question the logic of relying on institutions that don’t produce the required results? Delegating personal judgment to representation vulnerable to questionable influence is a recipe for disaster. The upside down and inside out Corporatist structure of this society and world creates more problems than it solves. Not only are decisions made according to private agendas of corporate global interests, but we are saddled with the burden of regulation toxic to local independence. Our neighbors are far more likely to have interests in common with us, than some convened body of public policy makers. That is the bedrock defense of a community against invasion by any organization. Certainly, those who believe the debt economy is a valid business model would not miss us, if we were gone. Being at the mercy of such treacherous mentalities is not an option, if we are to maintain civility and tranquility in our local relationships. We would do better to let the Globalist interests drift out to sea, without our support.
As the headlines state each day, people are not happy with the way the world is being reconstructed. The problem is that everything that is good and right is being dismantled, in the process. People are not idiots, regardless of what social engineers in their Ivory Towers may think.
Where is it?
