Beyond Hierarchy, Part 1: Why our current governments do not serve us

Behold the chains that bind you...
...With every passing day, the government makes more and more laws and regulations, so with every passing day, the government grows bigger and stronger while you become smaller and weaker. If we were to pile all the books of federal, state and local laws, regulations, court cases and legal precedents in a single stack, one wonders how close to the Moon it would reach. The weight of these books crushes the spirit of humankind.

Standing Government versus Coalescent Government

Throughout history, many cultures have understood the perils of maintaining a standing army (an army that remains in place even in times of peace). Such armies consume resources that are better used on other things, and since they have nothing to do in times of peace, they can be quite mischievous. They can pick unnecessary fights with neighboring nations, and they can use the power of their arms to subjugate their own people. An organized, powerful group with nothing to do can become quite the nightmare. “Idle hands are the Devil’s workshop,” it is said.

As we are increasingly seeing in the events unfolding in today’s world, the same problems exist with standing government. The primary problem with permanent government is that it constantly exerts power over our lives, and this can become quite cumbersome and oppressive. Once they have completed their rightful work, they are still there, so they tend to create make-work to keep themselves busy.

The make-work governments create can take the forms of ever more laws and regulations, ever more paperwork to process, and ever more intrusion into more and more details of our lives. With each passing day, governments continue moving further and further past the point of diminishing returns they crossed long, long ago. Thus, they usurp ever more power and resources from those below them, and as they do so, those below them become weaker and more in need of the government’s help. It becomes a vicious downward spiral for the whole society.

In a properly functioning world, the tasks governments perform should be quite few. To understand why, let’s consider the model of a world that works correctly. In a sane world…

Individuals have total freedom, as long as they don’t cause real, unjustified harm to others. They also have total power over, and responsibility for, themselves. They take action to provide for their own needs and desires, they create their own opportunities, and they solve their own problems. Since people are indeed made in the image of Source, each person has total power, total freedom, and total responsibility over his or her own life.

ONLY in situations where an individual cannot, despite "his" best efforts to do so, provide for a particular need, he should turn to his family, friends, neighbors, and sympathetic strangers for help. Such private, voluntary cooperation can handle most basic needs, wants and desires, and meeting those needs in this way allows everyone to do so of their own free will. Since every one of us will need such help at certain times in our lives, we must devote ourselves to helping others in this way. If you do not give, you cannot expect to receive. Do unto others...

ONLY in situations where individuals and private cooperation cannot efficiently and effectively provide for an individual or public need, local coordinating bodies (local governments) should be convened and tasked with doing what is needed. Difficult and time-consuming work, such as laying water mains and building local streets, cannot be reliably done by volunteers. Local coordinating bodies can organize such tasks as well as the monetary compensation for doing them.

ONLY in situations where individuals, private cooperation, and local coordinating bodies cannot efficiently and effectively provide for an individual or public need, regional coordinating bodies (regional governments) should be convened and tasked with doing what is needed. Regional tasks might include such things as building levees, constructing roads linking area cities and farms, creating regional water distributions systems, etc.

ONLY in situations where individuals, private cooperation, and local and regional coordinating bodies cannot efficiently and effectively provide for a public need, continental coordinating bodies (continental governments) should be convened and tasked with doing what is needed. This might include building expressways and railways, creating a continental aqueduct system, etc.

ONLY in situations where individuals, private cooperation, and local, regional, and continental coordinating bodies cannot efficiently and effectively provide for a public need, a global coordinating body (global government) should be convened and tasked with doing what is needed. This might include managing ocean fisheries, building global communications systems, etc.

In such a sanely configured system of government, governmental bodies are not standing organizations; they are called together only at specific times for specific purposes. Under such a system, higher bodies do only those things the lower bodies cannot do for themselves, and higher bodies have no power to do anything the bodies below them do not specifically request. This way, government coalesces only when it is needed, and power and responsibility is concentrated towards the grassroots, citizen level. As we all know, this is not the way government is currently done.

The man behind the curtain

When people start talking politics, I often hear them argue over the differences between a democracy and a republic. Regardless of which side of the argument each person takes, both sides are trying to articulate the same thing: a vision of a government of the people, by the people, and for the people that will function properly. Meanwhile, as they quibble over the two definitions, they are living in neither….

America, in its current form, is neither a republic nor a democracy; it is a quasi-consensual oligarchy (a nation ruled by a hidden few with the nominal consent of the governed). Any hope for the old republic outlined in the US Constitution died on December 23, 1913 with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act. With this law, a well-bribed US Congress handed over its power to print the nation’s currency to a private cabal of bankers.

With the awesome power afforded them by total control over America’s money, these bankers spent the following decades consolidating power over more and more elements of our society. And upon the beginning of the financial crisis in 2008, they started overtly asserting their near-total control over us. The formal funeral of the US republic will occur when these central banksters unveil their new global government and financial system (unless we stop them).

Under bankster control, the United States has become a single-party state under the rule of the “Illuminati Mason Party,” which is a behind-the-scenes, secret society run by the central banking families. This "party" has two wings: the Republican Wing and the Democratic Wing.

When the Republicans are publicly voted into control of the government, they implement the “right of center” elements of the controllers’ agenda; when the Democrats are voted into control, they implement the “left of center” elements. Whichever wing is in control of the public aspect of the government, though, it is the same overall agenda that is pursued. Thus politics, like finance, is a rigged game in which the public always loses.

To better visualize this, imagine that you are in a voting booth and there are two arms sticking out of a curtain in front of you. One arm is covered in a red sleeve and labeled “Republican,” and the other is covered in a blue sleeve and labeled “Democrat.”

Since you know nothing substantive about either arm, you decide to go with your favorite color and vote for the blue arm. But as soon as you make your choice, you are surprised to see that it starts picking your pocket! And as it takes more and more of your money, the red arm holds out a sign that says “Vote for Change!”

In the next election, you decide to switch your vote to the red arm, but to your shock, it immediately starts to put you in handcuffs! “Yikes!” you exclaim, “It is better to have my pocket picked than to be put in chains.” With this in mind, you look over and see the blue arm holding a sign that says “Change You Can Believe In!” So the next time, you again vote blue. Immediately afterwards, to your stunned amazement, the blue arm puts the handcuffs on your other wrist and starts picking your pocket again!

Standing there in the voting booth in total disbelief of what’s going on, you decide to look behind the curtain. Lo and behold, you see that both arms are attached to the same body! Seeing this, you realize that it never really mattered which arm you voted for, because either way, you were voting for the man behind the curtain, and he had it in his mind to steal from you and enslave you regardless of what you did.

With all of this so clear now, you walk out of the voting booth and choose your own arms to break the chains they put upon you.

The Structural Flaws of Today’s “Democracies”

When I ponder the nature of current “democratic” governments, my mind often flashes back to the old newsreels of the early attempts at constructing airplanes. In order to manifest their conceptions of a flying machine, early inventors came up with a wide variety of odd and ungainly craft...

Although most were powered and most had wings, the vast majority of them never took off, or they lifted into the air only briefly. The inventors had the right basic idea, but they didn’t structure them properly, so they never flew. So it has been with government by the people.

The fundamental problem with modern government is that although the way we select our putative leaders has changed, the traditional top-down, hierarchical structure of the bureaucracy has remained (and this was no accident). In this traditional administrative structure, which is a throwback to the days of kings and noblemen, the one at the top of the organization has all the authority, leaving the ones below to carry out his or her dictates. So even though we now supposedly elect our leaders, we place them into an authoritarian structure, thereby making them authoritarian dictators. Such a standing hierarchical government possesses many fundamental weaknesses that make it unsuitable for government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

First off, since all of the administrative power is invested in the person at the top of the hierarchy, such a structure is easily disrupted and corrupted by malevolent forces. If someone with mischievous intent wants to make the government do something or not do something, he needs only to bribe, blackmail or threaten the person at the top. If you can influence or control the person at the top, the whole organization is captured. Providing dark entities with such a juicy sitting target is a wide-open invitation to trouble.

Second, since such a structure grants the top person so much power, it draws in those who lust for power over others. This sets in motion what I call the cesspool effect. The cesspool effect is a naturally occurring phenomenon whereby people of questionable character and dubious motives are drawn to the power and money of government, then in turn draw others of their type into the offices around them...

Have you ever taken a moment to consider what kind of people run for political offices? Since most honest and good people are busy doing real, productive things in the world, running for office is left mostly to a rather motley pool of potential candidates: charismatic Illuminati family members and servers; attractive, intellectually underdeveloped people with a sense of entitlement and grandeur; favored sons and daughters carrying on the family business (politics); clueless crusaders who are trying to “change the world” (even though most of them barely understand how the world really works); sharp criminals trying to put themselves within arms reach of the biggest pools of money; and slick opportunists who want power, sex, and whatever else they can parlay from being in government. This is quite a lovely bunch we're left to choose from, is it not?

Of course, good people do sometimes run for office, but they find themselves greatly outgunned. Since honest people are prone to following campaign finance laws, they often get outspent by those who respect no boundaries. And when they do get in office, they find themselves amidst a very bad element, and are often subject to bribery, intimidation and blackmail. Most succumb to corruption or leave office, with only a few remaining to fight the good, but futile, fight.

Once ensconced in office, the corrupt find themselves threatened by any honest person in an elected or appointed post. They therefore collude to drive the honest ones out of office and bring in other unsavory people, thereby intensifying the cesspool effect. A crooked governor, for instance, can be held in check by an honest attorney general. But if that governor can help maneuver an unscrupulous friend into that office, he can run all of the scams he wishes, and working together, they can launch even grander schemes of villainy. In this way, standing hierarchical government becomes progressively more criminal over time.

We see the result of this cesspool effect in the current-day federal government of the U.S. It is an organization of such brazen and thorough corruption that it boggles the mind. Fortunately, the universe will soon flush this fetid turd down the drain. Even now, it is swirling around the toilet bowl towards oblivion. Good riddance.

All this being said, is it possible to conceive of an anti-hierarchical government that coalesces only when it's needed and that concentrates power at the bottom of the pyramid instead of the top? Yes, it is quite possible, and I'll offer my version of what it looks like in following entries.

With love always....

Watching the 17th (Update 10): Capital Controls and Capitol Drama

Ha! In accordance with the very first entry in this series, Chase is now installing capital controls...

Meanwhile, the government is making noises like a debt limit deal is in the offing (just like they did late last week). Will they make a deal and push this thing off for a few more months, or are they just finessing the markets with propaganda until we arrive at the trigger date? As noted in Update 5, the trigger date could be anywhere from the 17th through November 1 during this particular window of opportunity.

On the spiritual propaganda side of things, they may be intending to delay the Event again if Cobra's new entry is any indication...

"After December 21st, 2012, the Resistance has managed to break into the etheric mainframe computer of the Archons but the particular program regarding implants has not been hacked yet. We are hoping that this will happen in the next few months."

So yesterday, Cobra says it might take a few more months to clear out the Archons, and today, the government is talking about pushing back the X-date for a few more months? What a coincidence! It leaves one with the distinct impression that Cobra is stretching out his phony narrative of the etheric clearing to suit the Event timeline of the Occulted Powers.
