Blaming the 1% for diminished prosperity avoids the real reasons for designed poverty.
In round terms, the seven billion souls that populate this planet translate into seventy million to be part of the 1%. Well,
that amount is still a very large number to blame for the systemic transfer of riches into the hands of the few. A far more
relevant approach is to examine the .001% or around seven million that fall into the mover or shakers of asset and possessions.
Before targeting this group of mega wealth, that figure includes a very significant number, who are non players when it comes
to global politics or transnational finance.
That notorious time of the year is upon us again; the
income tax deadline. It is an affected date because the tax system tells it is so. The torment and extortion of organized
theft goes on all year long, but April 15 has a special place in the gut of every victim of larceny by government. Oh sure,
paying taxes is supposed to be the price of maintaining civilization, but when was the last time that government protected
, much less promoted, the mythical “Good Society”. The notion that paying tribute to a federal self ordained authority
as a duty is only accepted by delusional proponents of a fantasy existence of welfare recipient beneficiaries.
Once upon a time the Founding Fathers were considered to be the personification
of the American Republic. Most notable among giants, was Thomas Jefferson. The significance of his authorship of the Declaration
of Independence is heralded as the very essence of the purpose for fighting the revolution. Jump onward to the present era
and examine the sentiment held by the populace. The seeming disconnect from the political thought of the 18th and 19th century
to the attitudes in this 21st totalitarian collectivist mindset that dominates the culture, often resembles life on a different
inexorable decay in moral conduct is evident and undeniable to any member of the cretin society. Only a fool or a fraudster
would argue that the relativism ethics, which is the operative social prescription, is healthy human development for a harmonious
culture. Society has gone mad. Look around and observe. Insanity in institutions and conflicts among personal interactions
has become the norm. The basis of desirable stability and fair order are virtually non-existent. Upon this stage of discontent,
humans are now viewed as the ultimate dispensable creatures. Eugenics is all the rage, as human life is treated with irreverence.
The misplaced reverence to the ill formulated U.S Constitution
and hidden subjugation back to the City of London is one aspect of history that is not taught in government schools or discussed
in institutes of higher education. This subject is probably new to most observers of the legacy from the Founding Father’s
biggest mistake. Regular readers of BREAKING ALL THE RULES are familiar with the arguments made in the essays, In the beginning: Let there be the Articles of Confederation and Articles of Confederation was Preferable. Now the case for the betrayal of the purpose of the American Revolution needs to be explored.
The immortal words uttered by Prince Hamlet as he contemplates death and suicide,
applies for an entire society. The enormous gravity that permeates William Shakespeare’s tragic hero represents the
same fate confronting the normal mortals, who make up the ranks of Americans. The rapid decline in intelligence and moral
character has approached epidemic levels. The ROT which has seeped into the popular culture has become a metamorphosis Reign of Terror. The transformers from a heritage of principle, courage and honor have sunk to a level of Slouching Towards Gomorrah. Such a fate was feared by our Founding Fathers.
Perpetual War to Justify
the Permanent War of Terror
The saga of continuous deployment and a garrison empire is a long and sad
state of affairs. Using the trumped up fright that America’s enemies are geared up to bomb malls and sporting venues,
builds a phony fear that the only response to combat the threat is to wage continuous foreign campaigns. What put such sophistry
to rest are the facts that such uninterrupted carnage just feeds the fields of growing hostility towards America. If the War
on Terror was winnable, why not start by stopping the War of Terror that is the center piece of aggressive projection
of bellicose power.
Water and air are the most important resources on the planet. Breathing clean
air seems to be accepted as a noble goal and the cost attributed to its improvement is usually universally accepted. However,
the same cannot be said about access to fresh water as big business interests often argues. Many corporate interests contend
that private ownership of public water out- weighs the rights of actual property owners. Corporate agriculture is quite different
from traditional family farming. Yet, the factory farms that have taken over agribusiness demonstrate little regard for preserving
a viable water supply.
Remember the stagflation years? Maybe the current world economic environment
is just in an enduring lethargy awaiting the bottom to fall out. Seldom has flat performance lingered as long as it has. Meaningful
expansion, under a zero interest rate strategy has failed. Even much lower oil prices have not jump- started the engine of
growth. Prospects for an upturn and a return to producing constructive activity still seem to be years away. Or is this a
permanent outlook that baffles business executives and frustrates creative entrepreneurs. For the rest of us, waiting and
hoping for a viable economy has become wishful thinking at best.
