The Governing Elite
Governments empower themselves mostly by taking away the powers of
'the people' to govern their own lives. Agreed? Yes? Then read on.
2. Organisations - whether they be religious, ideological, corporate,
institutional, etc - tend mostly to want to grow. And this desire
to grow is usually consistent with most of the ambitions of the
individuals who work within them. Thus, for example, the larger and the more
powerful does an organisation grow, the greater are the future prospects for
those who work within it - particularly for those near the top; the ones who
tend to 'drive' the organisation. So. Organisations tend to want to grow and
become more powerful.
Agreed? Yes? Then read on.
3. The more powerful is an organisation, and the more powerful are the
individuals who work within it, the better are its chances of achieving its
aims. Agreed? Yes? Then read on.
4. Western governments are hugely powerful. They are more powerful than any other organisations in their
countries, and they are certainly much more powerful by far than are the
individuals over whom they rule. Agreed? Yes? Then read on.
If you agree that, on balance, the above four points are true, then
it surely follows that you also agree with the view that most western governments and
their officials wish, on balance, to
become more powerful and that they are likely to have the means to achieve this
- fundamentally, by taking away the powers of people to govern their own lives and
to create the circumstances which are likely to bring this about.
As such, western governments are likely to exert huge forces across societies in order to
achieve their self-serving aims.
And this is exactly what they do.
They exert huge forces across societies in order to
achieve their SELF-SERVING aims.
And one of the most effective ploys that western governments use to achieve these
aims is to create as much 'disharmony' as possible throughout their societies.
And this they do by, for example, fostering crime, encouraging family and
relationship breakdowns, promoting excessive immigration restricting people's freedoms, generating hysteria and
hatred, disempowering parents etc etc etc.
Western governments and their officials obtain a very large percentage of their
votes, their money and their power by claiming that they can reduce 'disharmony'
- something which their peoples fear.
As such, the greater is the disharmony the more do they gain.
Indeed, when you view western governments as hugely powerful 'organisms' that wish
to survive, to grow, and to become evermore wealthy and powerful, and you
understand that without 'disharmony' there would not actually be much need for
large swathes of government, many otherwise
inexplicable things begin to make sense.
Here are just some examples of these.
1. The war on drugs. This criminalises millions of people and funds an
enormous amount of serious criminal activity as well as terrorism.
2. The war on men and their close personal relationships. This is maintained
largely by forever expanding the definition and scope of the term 'abuse', by engendering hysteria
and man-hatred through bogus claims and statistics promulgated in highly charged
publicity campaigns, and through a wholesale corruption of the justice system.
3. The war on marriage. By offering women significant incentives (e.g. welfare,
alimony, child support, child custody etc) to dissolve their marriages and by
making men more redundant within them, western governments have taken over the
role of 'husband' and they have also left millions of children without fathers, the
truly massive negative impact of which across society is one of the most robust
statistical discoveries to do with families ever made by social scientists.
4. The disempowerment of parents, teachers,
police officers and adults in general when it comes to dealing with youngsters.
This encourages youngsters to behave in an unproductive and antisocial manner.
And even youngsters who are found to be engaging in fairly serious
criminal activities seem to be able to flout the law with relative impunity - at
considerable cost to the rest of us. And the conditions that they have to endure
if they are, indeed, ever incarcerated for their sins are so impoverished that
the prospects of rehabilitating them and pushing them in more favourable
directions are not very good at all.
5. The lack of concern for excessive immigration. Excessive immigration spreads criminality, disease, conflict and
insecurity throughout most large cities across a nation.
Many western government departments and millions of
government employees benefit from these things.
Yep: They actually benefit from them.
In the case of excessive immigration, they benefit from all the extra
tax dollars where the immigrants are productive, and they also benefit
where the immigrants are disruptive, because they can then justify
extracting extra tax dollars to deal with the problems.
Furthermore, those in the higher echelons - in the 'governing elite' - benefit even more
hugely from such things, and they, themselves, can largely avoid the
negative consequences because of their wealth, their power and their ability to
live in more salubrious circumstances.
The rest of us, however, continually have to bear the costs.
And so the next time that you ask yourself the question, "How is it that
there is nowadays so much hatred, so much crime and disharmony, so much violence
- domestic and otherwise - and so much unhappiness around the place? -
particularly given that we are so much richer, so much more advanced
(scientifically, technologically and medically etc) than people have ever been
before," then take a closer look at what those in government are doing,
and you will get much, much closer to the answer.
Always remember that it is very much in the interests of western governments and their officials to promote disharmony within their societies,
and that they tend to exert huge forces to bring
such disharmony about.
