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.
FEDERAL CATTLE CAR
If you ask people, “Are you gullible?”, the automatic answer is, “No, I don’t think so.”. Given enough economic and social pressure, people do agree to the strangest things. Once a generation agrees to be a sub – contractor for an invading private agenda, rather than keeping independence and free will, it’s all downhill for subsequent generations. That is the history of what was once America. That independence and creative resilience is gone. Each generation in the progress of Reconstruction is loaded on the Federal cattle car. Offer people prosperity. Offer them power and influence within the corporate structure. Tell them “It’s for the children”. Tell them anything. Bring them tales of corporate conquest and parade military heroes in front of them. For generations, people have called corporate tyranny a good thing. They just follow orders, believing that leaders do right in the world. They profit from trafficking in people and body parts, thinking they are serving the greater good. Where is the conscience that quietly and persistently reminds us that our economy grows on the people that have been plowed under as corporate fertilizer?
Barbed wire, overt human harvesting, internment and labor camps, the visual trappings of government gone bad, are bad public relations. Today, Americorps and the Peace Corps have replaced the Hitler Youth. yes, they will be trained to be good little Corporatists. Conquest in the name of Public Service is now the accepted definition of Humanitarianism. That is the way that Fascism presents itself, as the benefactor of humanity. the promise of a glorious future always ends in smoking ruins and piles of dead bodies. It is that dark side of human nature, that lust for power, hard at work seeking dominance over other human beings. We see it in the efforts to create “constituencies” and in “development projects”. A constituent is legal property. In these efforts, nations are drawn into web of debt and corporate subjugation. Billions of people suffer, while corporations manage the wealth they stole from them. That is why some of the wealthiest people in the world gave it all away, before they died. They wanted to get the guilt of all of that dirty money washed from their hands, before they died. Late may be better than never, but that doesn’t restore the lives that were destroyed. There will be a just accounting for the lives sacrificed for the gain of Corporatism.
En este punto, hemos traicionado a nosotros mismos ya nuestro país. Hemos peleado en guerras para las corporaciones multi-nacionales. Durante 100 años, hemos sido arrastrados a la consolidación de las empresas del comercio mundial. La agenda de corporativismo recoge el botín de guerra, mientras que el pueblo estadounidense se culpa por ello. Esto debe terminar. Esta nación no fue fundada para saquear el resto del mundo. Debemos hacer valer nuestra autoridad legítima, legal mediante la corrección de nuestra nacionalidad, convertirse en estadounidenses de nuevo, y retirar nuestro consentimiento para que la corporación federal que nos esclaviza. Para nuestra educación, tenemos los siguientes sitios web. Vivir y aprender.Orar y buscar. Por favor, Dios. Nos ayudan en nuestro tiempo de necesidad nacional.
We have to trust in Divine Providence to put us in the right place, at the right time. There is no where to run to. A good common sense start would be to get away from the major cities. When this mess blows, it will be spectacular.
Private bankster debts have been socialized and this is leading to a sovereign debt crisis. The amount of public debt which America carries is in the region of US$100T-200T when you include Social Security, Medicare, GSE debts, unfunded liabilities, off balance sheet items..etc. The debt to GDP ratio of most Eurozone nat … Read More
This is what I was writing about when I listed “The Four Money Questions”. We are capable of understanding. We have standards of judgment. We are competent to make our own decisions.
