Note (17APR2023): A nation of increasing inconsistencies. Reportedly, people are fleeing New York City as a consequence of crime and high taxes; yet, rents in Manhattan increased 12% during the past year. Reportedly, people are fleeing California as a consequence of crime and high taxes; yet, the price of real estate remains sky-high. In the recent election in Chicago, the most impoverished precincts with the highest rate of crime elected the candidate from The Far Left who supports decreased funding for an already beleaguered police.
What do such inconsistencies represent? Nothing? Something? If something, what?
As described in Retribution Fever, any system requires a comprehensive, cohesive set of principles by which to operate; otherwise, it disintegrates. That truth applies to animate and inanimate systems. For human societies, the set of principles can be theological such as the Judeo-Christian dogma that bound together Western Civilization for centuries until recently. It can be political such as the Communists’ dogma that President Xi is promoting to try to bind together China.
Given that truth, the rampant, fundamental inconsistencies found throughout American society suggest disintegration. Who’s to blame? Self-styled patriots who did nothing but complain, thereby, allowing their enemies to triumph. The jaws of evil are closing.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” -incorrectly attributed to Edmund Burke (1729-1787)
Note (10APR2023): Banks collapsing. Embedded inflation. Economic collapse, as predicted in Retribution Fever (2018)?
With regard to controlling economies, governments basically have one of the following, two options:
1) Closed Markets. The government tries to control the economy via i) finance, for example, setting interest rates through a closed committee not the open market and coinage by expanding the monetary supply to meet fiscal expenditures; and ii) productivity through differential laws, subsidies, and taxes, thereby, creating a context that promotes lobbying and corruption.
2) Open Markets. The government does not try to control the economy and allows free and open markets via i) a sound and stable currency, the supply of which varies with productive demand not consumptive demand, while allowing the marketplace not a committee to set interest rates; and ii) protection against fraud and deceit, thereby, maintaining a context of a level playing field for all participants.
Option One usually ends badly as it did with the Roosevelt Administration during the Great Depression of the 1930’s. By designing the context and choosing the winners and losers, it promotes inefficiency and suppresses creativity and productivity; i.e., evil.
“We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before, and it does not work.” -Henry Morgenthau, Secretary of the Treasury (1934-1945)
Option Two offers a volatile context but one that is self-correcting over time. The consequences are cleansing of inefficiency and enhancement of creativity and productivity; i.e., goodness.
These United States have chosen Option One. We are witnessing the consequences in the context of a republican democracy versus a democratic republic.
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can exist only until a majority of voters discover that they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury.” -Alexander Tyler (1747-1813)
The jaws of the vice are closing on this fragmenting, declining nation on fire — the jaws of Fascism. One consequence already is tyrannical oppression with political arrests even of a former president.
A second is loss of national prestige and international respect. It will hit home with the Chinese invasion of Taiwan, to which Biden’s cabal either will send in the fleet to be sunk or, more likely, merely will write a nasty note of protest; either way, these United States no longer will be the political superpower.
A third is loss of the dollar as the reserve currency. That loss already has begun with the loss of the “petro-dollar” as the only means of exchange for purchasing petroleum. The loss is amplified by the Biden-cabal intentionally having lost energy-independence, even selling our petroleum-reserve to China. These United States no longer will be an economic superpower.
How could such ruin happen? How? Christian, male Euro-Caucasians allowed it.
“There are none so blind as those who will not see.” – John Heywood (1497-1580)
With few exceptions, your commentators, even on The Right, led all Americans astray. You blindly followed. You still are. Meanwhile, the black shroud of Fascism — not Communism — is enveloping you. Fascism is not Communism. Learn the difference.
As Fascism began its slow but steady envelopment even long before Biden, Americans on The Right besieged the government to stop the perpetrators. The government was the perpetrator! It was like asking Adolf Hitler to stop Heinrich Himmler from persecuting Jews.
Biden and his cabal are merely the culmination of your failure to understand and to act accordingly. Ah, but you didn’t want to understand, let alone to act. As studies have proven, you preferred pleasant lies to unpleasant truths — truths about which this commentator and a few others were warning you. Now come the midnight raids by heavily armed agents of the police-state to arrest innocent Americans like you; yet, many of you still persist in remaining blind and deaf to the danger.
Donald Trump even pronounced on television the other night, “This nation is dead!” What more do you need?
Can the ruin be resurrected? How? Rebellion? Would Jefferson agree?
“I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing; and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.” -Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
All right, Jefferson might agree, but rebellion is insufficient. Win — then what? Restore a flawed and failed constitution that allowed this ruin to happen? Yes, it was magnificent in its time, especially the Bill of Rights about which the Framers themselves argued as to its necessity. The Constitution of the United States of America, however, represented a compromise among men not the second document given by God.
“Some men look at constitutions with sanctimonious reverence, and deem them like the ark of the covenant, too sacred to be touched.” -Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
With the indictment of Mr. Trump, on television and elsewhere lawyers are arguing the fine points of the law. The law has nothing to do with Mr. Trump’s persecution. The persecution is about politics! Look at the fundamentals, as this commentator has besieged you for years but to no avail. Not a celebrity? No matter the how true the truth that you speak, no matter how true the predictions that you make, you become a modern-day Cassandra.
So, now hear this! The Left has wanted mayhem. It has promoted mayhem. If you resist the mayhem with violence, your doing so will give them cause to lower the final boom. If you fail to resist the mayhem, your failure to do so will allow them to lower the final boom. An avoidance:avoidance conflict, the worst kind. Either way, you lose unless . . . .
People have political power. When enough people demanded that he do so, even President Xi finally heeded that which this commentator wrote on this site in 2021 and that which many Chinese read. More freedom of speech in China than in these United States? Is that possibility enough to frighten you into action?
“Screw your courage to the sticking place.” -from Macbeth by William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
In your minds, you know what to do. Should you succeed — and you can succeed, form a new political party to replace the cowardly, corrupt, power-hungry Republicans and reform the document that allowed this ruin to occur. Reform how? Incorporate the Scientific Method as described in detail how and why in the unique novel, Retribution Fever. Employ a comprehensive, scientifically-based solution — or, conversely, continue listening to those who have led you astray. How many even mention science? Your choice. Your future.
“Every nation has the government for which it is fit.” -Joseph de Maistre (1753-1821)
Is Biden and his cabal the only government for which this nation is fit? If so, only God can help us.
