Our Psychopathic Management By Crisis
How All Government Systematically Destroys Peace & Prosperity
By David A. McElroy
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is a prime example of the thing corrupting any government. Recall her complaining that Catholic doctors opposing her pro-abortion mandate on them were problem constituents because “they have this conscience thing.” Apparently, Pelosi, the botox poster girl, finds those with a conscience alien to her cold mind. A psychopath, by the clinical definition, is someone who lacks a conscience.
Mankind’s propensity for rule by hierarchy stems from our logical desire for order in any society. It began quite naturally in the family, the basic unit of society, where parents rule children. This desire for order is rooted deep in the wants and needs of people seeking peace and prosperity, freedom and safety in comfortable environs where they can pursue happiness secure in their property. We are gratified by affirmations of “correct” beliefs reinforced by social engineers in the petri dish of our culture. The positions of power and influence that ANY government establishes draw psychopaths like moths to a flame, and this always leads to a system of management by crisis. These egotistic sociopaths always subvert the ideals of “good government,” and wear psychological masks appropriate to deceitfully win approval.
Our desire for a “father” or “mother” figure to lead us causes those actors in the political theatre to don such masks as will cause us to follow them. It would be most adult of us to choose self-rule, practicing, like libertarians, no force nor fraud upon our fellows. Christ did summarize all the law ever needed in the Golden Rule wherein you “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Good law is based upon love, which is integral with respect and justice. Jesus Christ cites the simple law of love in Matthew 22:35-40.
As Thomas Jefferson said, “He who governs best, governs least.” Or as the motto on our early pennies read, “Mind Your Business”. Discipline yourself, not others.
Government, by nature, is imposed, interventionist, and confrontational. It is incapable of love. It is a process, a force without conscience like fire, seeking only to consume and grow. George Washington said, “Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” It will develop an institutional identity, like Uncle Sam, distinct and separate from the people it purports to represent. It is most dangerously unstable when centered upon a cult of personality, an emperor, priest or king. All institutions evolve to become self-serving, even those created with the most noble intentions. Such always come to see the people not as a constituency to serve, but only as a commodity to use. The process of “progressive” government has been seen time and again through the ages, in many forms. All failed, rotten to the core.
Government’s whole reason for being is to protect the people and resolve problems that threaten people, and therefore cannot grow in a stable society of peaceful contented people secure in their property. Therefore, rulers create problems so that they have an excuse to intervene in the affairs of the people. All government employs the Hegelian Dialectic in covertly creating a problem to disturb the people, and attract them to take a preconceived position amidst their left and right pincers to grasp more power or profit. Plainly, it is management by crisis, but discussed in public as being crisis management. Without problems, government has little to manage, little to administer, smaller cadres of employees, fewer offices, smaller budgets, less power. So they will create fear and chaos, poverty, ignorance and hunger, hatred and hurt, to tempt or scare people into traps that contented, educated and secure people would never enter. “Leaders” trick us into surrendering our opportunities and God-given rights and liberties for promises of security, bread and circuses. See how America is totally bereft of virtue, divided, bankrupt and militarily overextended globally, our currency and our culture debauched to worthlessness like that of the Roman Empire? Is Nero fiddling amid the flames of our civilization? Does he blame the Christians?
Our form of government is not so important as its’ cultural ideals, principles, boundaries and brotherhood shaped by the consent of the governed. God created nations as distinct ethnic groups, cultures with common language and customs, not a multi-cultural polyglot of confusion tolerating perversity and subversion. Slaves will only take so much, then rebel. But greedy masters respond only by tightening restraints by intrusively exploiting force and fraud to promote fear and hatred to divide the people and justify the tyrants’ aggressive psychopathic behaviors like warfare. A virtuous loving people practicing self-government is civilization at its’ highest. We are now experiencing a technocratic fascism posing as a democracy to religiously promote science and technology in a sophisticated barbarian regime equating increased collective power with higher civilization on the basis of monolithic achievements. These barbarians, of the Material Dialectic, hold the state to be mankind’s highest achievement, demanding we yield to the state as unto God. Such corporatists destroy cultures and individuals, realizing the egotistical dreams of ruling psychopaths like Pharoah, Caesar, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot or Obama.
Aldous Huxley, in addressing the California Medical School for the Tavistock Group in 1961, stated that “There will be in the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak. Producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”
Has a generation or so matured since 1961? Do you also see a society pursuing the many prescription pharmaceuticals and illicit drugs for every reason or excuse imaginable, now making Americans the most heavily drugged people on Earth? Are most people distracted by sports, sex or inanely irrelevant entertainment? Have we lost liberties with the Patriot Act, National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, “Obamacare”, myriads of other laws? Laws so numerous nobody can know them all, especially since some are even classified “secret”? Do you see bald-faced propaganda foisted upon us in the mainstream media? Do you see public schools as the “public fool system”? Do politicians lie when their lips move? Do you see correlation between America’s government today and the rise of the Nazi party in Hitler’s Germany? The legislation, subterfuge, restructuring of government, and promotion of a culture of diversity tolerating degeneracy match up, as does the blind obedience required by police, rampant militarism and the bold plans for “useless eaters” and dissidents! Government agencies even listed those defending the US Constitution to be “extremists” or “potential terrorists”! WAKE UP!
Do many members of Congress bother anymore to even pretend they are being honest, representative, or accountable to we constituents? Do they insult your intelligence? Or protect your dignity, liberty, opportunity, prosperity and safety? Politics is defined as the art of compromise. Do any members of Congress ever know when to stop? Have you now been compromised enough? Whatever has happened to basic principles like “no man is above the law” and “equality before the law”, or “innocent until proven guilty”, citizen’s arrest, a fully informed jury of our peers deciding the law and the fact of a matter, due process required on charges presented? Or a polite knock on the door for a neighborly chat instead of lethal black-clad SWAT teams crashing thru the windows in the middle of the night? Why do we allow a president to kill anyone, anytime, anywhere merely upon his command? Did our forefathers not fight a Revolutionary War for these issues? What of Posse Comitatus or the “Castle Doctrine”?
Have you noticed in political surveys that ask you “What is the most important issue?”, corruption in government is never an issue presented? Why are the talking heads on TV mum about our loss of liberties, the gutting of our Bill of Rights by the NDAA of 2012, or both houses of Congress being stripped of their constitutional powers by Barack Obama imposing his Super Committee? Why no talk of the microchip implants required for us in Obama’s healthcare slated for March 13, 2013 in HR 3200 Part I, Sec. B, paragraph 4? This was enacted March 21, 2010. That microchip will link with your bank account by RFID for automatic payment of medical bills, as well as storing your medical records. Do you see a big fat smelly camel’s nose inside your “private” tent? Or how this microchip can lay the base for the proposed “cashless society” social engineers are now collapsing our economy into? Will you surrender total control of your life without a whimper? Do you not see how the Mark of the Beast can be used to control not only the medical care? A chip can control where and when you will spend or receive funds, and what you are permitted to purchase based upon status and usefulness to the state. Convenient, huh?
Please note that “state” is the root word for “statistics”. The state’s rulers determine their course of action using statistics, government employs more statisticians than anyone. It is a numbers game vastly enhanced with the digital technology intruding into our lives at every turn. The elite won’t be happy until they have us all microchipped like cattle. I would call to your attention King David being punished by God after “Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel” against God’s command to trust Him without relying upon numbers. See I Chronicles 21:1-8. God would have us live un-numbered, without centralized records and surveillance. God’s Ten Commandments are sufficient laws to live by individually and collectively, laws Christ summarized for that lawyer in Matthew 22:35-40. Any government presuming to exercise more authority than called for in God’s Law is tyranny, and upholding any less is negligence. This is why the federal officers and “progressives” rail mightily against the Ten Commandments, quite commonly acknowledged as the basis of Western Civilization’s jurisprudence, engraved in the US Supreme Court for that reason.
Do you suppose you can really change government’s course by “voting the bums out”? If voting actually changed government, it would be outlawed as rebellion. The US election system, particularly in electronic voting systems, is obviously and proven corrupt! “It’s not the votes that count, it’s who counts the votes,” Stalin had remarked, and “It doesn’t matter who the people voted for, they always vote for us.” By all means, vote the party line. It is all political theatre. Democrats and Republicans take turns playing “Good Cop, Bad Cop”, both representing the same force abusing our wallets and our liberties. Don’t be swayed by differences in rhetoric, look at patterns and dynamics, the records and characters of the actors on stage. Do you notice anything unusual about the GOP being willing to support any Republican candidate but Ron Paul? Is positioning Dr. Paul as the honest libertarian underdog itself a ploy of elitists? Could a return to the gold standard and elimination of many departments and services also be setting us up for the severe circumstances now favored by oligarchs twisting personal responsibility into endless slavery? We must be careful and think ahead, extrapolating the enemy, willing to fight for our dignities as vigilant free people struggling for truth, justice, and liberty.
The tyrants always eventually destroy their own base of power, like termites devouring the house sheltering them. Or the iconic snake devouring its’ tail. The hungry head has disassociated itself from the body of people. In doing so, it debilitates itself and consigns an empire to disintegration from within or without. Who brought the Trojan Horse inside the gate? Why? The trick is for us still fighting for life and liberty to survive the fall of the empire, the wild death throes of a dragon tangled in the rigging of a sinking ship of state. Don’t grieve for the broken vessel, see the Skull & Bones flying from the mast? Take the plunge!
As Senator Barry Goldwater declared, “…extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” The US Supreme Court, in American Communications Association v. Douds, ruled that “It is not the function of our government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.” Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas is remembered saying “The right to revolt has sources deep in our history.” Rekindle the “Spirit of ‘76” wherein “Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God!” was one battle cry shouted in the American Revolution.
Do you ask, “What would Jesus do?” Well, let us look at Mark 10:42-45 for counsel from the Holy Bible. Christ, speaking to his disciples, said “Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them: and their great ones exercise authority upon them. But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”
The word “rulers” in this passage in Mark 10 is the English translation of the Greek word “archists”, which is the opposite of “anarchists”. So, we here find Jesus admonishing his disciples to be ANARCHISTS! Christ wants us to live in brotherly love and eschew the ego seeking superiority over others, as libertarians. He wants us to rule ourselves as free men who love God and all people. Jesus, God’s Son, served humbly and challenges us to assail the evils of this world in taking up our cross as He did, sacrificing daily life for the common godly good. Bondage to Christ brings us to liberty in the Lord’s love, if not in this world, then the next, offers salvation from the chains of Lucifer’s deceptive exploits. Jesus was a man of divine conscience powerfully exercised to rule Himself in service to our Father God alone. Over 2,000 years later, Christ yet leads many by the most powerful example of manhood. He challenges us to follow Him carrying our own battle for liberty, speaking truth to power, proving ungodly rulers governing this world. Jesus would have us stand as Christian soldiers, wearing the “full armor of God” cited by the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 6:11-18, willing to pay the price of liberty and justice. Although prohibited by Roman Law, Jesus advised his disciples to purchase swords in Luke 22:36.
As Edmund Burke remarked, “The only thing needed for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” Are you good for nothing? Will you choose to have no king but Jesus? Will you choose to live free or die?
1 Comments in Response to Our Psychopathic Management By Crisis
I presume this opinion piece never made FP's front page because it came from an overtly "Jesus is a libertarian" angle, and a bit preachy in applying scripture to our current psychopathic management by crisis. But hey, I'm an old chaplain. Is there any editor's response?
