Something wicked this way comes

Written by Chandler St Pierre Subject: General Opinion

"In those dark and divided days most of us were too busy arguing with our fellow man, to see the real threat looming on the horizon. A creature skilled in the art of misdirection, was slowly stirring. The evil empire, under the heroic guise of change, masterfully promoted discord, insidiously gathering it's strength as it continued to march on towards the next phase. It was taking advantage of poor education, economic desolation, and utilizing agendas of identity politics through its puppets, to shape the world stage for the next scene. To say it was a game would be inaccurate, it was more like theater, only, with very real consequences."

When I first set out to write this piece I was going to do a critique of the current administration's policies pointing, out what I saw as it's major flaws. However as I began to write the tone changed. The way I see it doesn't matter how wrongheaded or ignorant a president's (or government) policies are. If individuals choose to rule themselves and embrace decentralization, the machinations of two bit despots under the guise of legitimacy have far less consequence. Coming from that perspective, it's very disheartening to see former liberty minded individuals become apologists, and advocates for Mr. Trump. How easily these folks are satisfied by hollow words, and deceptive half measures, embracing them as a sign of the progress yet to come. Have they forgotten their roots? America is only one week into the reign of its new king, and already we see the policy of orders by executive fiat continuing unabated. This is not change, this is not "giving power back to the people", it is simply continuing the age-old game of political domination.

Please understand this is not a diatribe against Mr. Trump, he's just a puppet playing the role he was selected for. This is more of an outcry against the incessant need of individuals to be ruled. So many folks out there lose faith in themselves believing that they have no power. That is the great lie. These individuals define themselves by the celebrities and institutions they support, whether in entertainment or politics. They see collectivism as the only viable means to promote change. Sadly, they fail to recognize the reality that collectivism erodes their freedoms and destroys their identity. Collectivism is the tool that the majority uses to impose it's will upon everyone else. It is a tool that has been so easily and successfully manipulated by the powers that shouldn't be for decades. The time has come for that reality to end. Now more than ever individuals have the tools to change themselves, and the world around them for the better.

Edward Snowden recently said "faith in elected leaders to fix our problems is the mistake that we keep repeating." He is spot on. So many of folks out there, believing the great lie, grant legitimacy to these destructive systems, institutions, and politicians, continuing the cycle of their own oppression. It's very difficult to see how humanity can thrive and progress if it keeps traveling down this road. As this macabre theater procession plays out, each of us has a choice to make. Do we embrace collectivism and continue on the path to oppression, or do we as individuals, promote decentralization of everything, working voluntarily and cooperatively towards more peaceful and productive ends? My vote is for the latter.

The left sowed all of this. They pushed and pushed, every month, every week, with their idiotic cake-baking, photograph-taking, restroom-swapping, jihad-denying cultural change idiocy, while the bulk of America stood back and wondered when the insanity was going to end. Well, it ended this month, and long past time. As much as we believe Trump is ultimately a loose cannon, we believe him to be an equal-opportunity loose cannon, not fettered to oppressive collectivist ideologies. And the lamentations of the arrogant socialists do more to push us into Trump's rooting section than anything Trump does. The tyrannical collectivist culture must be crushed, and in his first month, Trump has done more to crush it than even Reagan ever accomplished.

Did you write articles promoting decentralization of everything when the previous dictator was still in power? Not making any accusations, but I don't recognize your name from anywhere. One thing that burns me no end is how the progressives arrogantly trot out "nuclear options" when they are in power, then arrogantly demand "bipartisan cooperation" when they are not. Much of what Trump is doing this month is repealing the idiotic dictates of his failed predecessor. That he does this with the same "pen and phone" with which the original atrocities were committed doesn't much concern me. (cont'd)

well duh!!! Your article is words and only words supported by --- well nothing. You remark on people's "need to be ruled" but offer no evidence to its validity. Maybe you think it is obvious. You know obvious like the sun goes around the earth :-) And if you think that the sun does not go around the earth, then I would like to see you offer the slightest evidence that it does not. Back to the topic at hand. A 6000 word essay that I call orwells boot that I first posted in early 2009, and since the middle of that year, almost 8 years ago, a search on the title orwells boot shows this article to be No. 1 on all search engines. Using fundamental premises, logic and available evidence I show why most people want to be ruled, or rather why groups move towards hierarchies
