A Choice for Every Society

A Choice for Every Society.PDF Version

Two choices. 1. Government serves the citizens. 2. Citizens serve their government. It is a choice.

This does not have to be a conscious choice. As a matter of fact it seldom is I am not sure it ever is. Folks can make a natural choice. That means the choice may be pre – programmed into the human mind by the forces of nature.

People give intellectual answers to questions like those above. When the two questions are entertained, the reply will be something like this. A typical answer might be, “Government serves the people in the United States. That is guaranteed in the U.S. constitution. We all learned that in school.”. 

So, how is the situation going in the United States? Here is a link to the bills on which the House and Senate have passed and sent to the president.

Bills Passed Congress-Senate Sent to President

How many citizens have heard anything about these bills? How many care one way or another? So, U.S. citizens control their government. Given absolutely none have any knowledge of what is going on in the government….how is it that U.S. citizens are in control of their government? They don’t even know what is going on in government, other than what is purposefully fed to them.

But, of course Americans are in control of their government, right? The U.S. constitution says they are, right?

When you disregard how people, institutions and laws are officially defined – and consider only how they function – that changes everything. With that, a clear picture emerges. We are looking at belief in keeping with official definitions. This is fantasy. How a thing functions is what matters.

Your Americans have plenty of relevant information. Why are they not sharing it with the citizens? That is because citizens are deemed too naive, irresponsible and ignorant to grasp what is going on. Perhaps they are. Would it make a difference if they had relevant information?  Ordinary folks do fine on juries.

If a government  controls its citizens, does that mean government has a life of its own and operates independently of everyone? That is impossible. Government is controlled by perhaps a fraction of three percent of the population. Government serves this group very well. That means you as a citizen serve them also.

In a previous article For Profit Legislation, I explain that all legislation is for profit. Given human nature, it can’t be any other way. All lawmakers act out of self – interest. It behooves them to represent the upper fraction of three percent, who control government by controlling congress. The upper fraction of the population votes but votes are not all they offer. Why they offer much more is obvious. They have so much to offer in terms of benefits and consequences that they end up getting the representation ordinary citizens merely assume they have. It isn’t that they love each other. This is all completely brutal. The result is we have multitudes of abusive bills on the books which rig markets and funnel countless dollars to the top.

Once passed, odds are nearly one hundred percent, a bill will never be repealed. Most laws become feeding frenzies on federal money. In our universe, all entities serve something or somebody. Democracy provides a unique platform where  servitude comes out even. It works the same way in free markets. In the United States we have neither. Servitude is ongoing but it never comes out even.

The big payoff to viewing life in the light of reality is that there are no surprises. Gain the Fantasy Free Advantage, which is the light of reality, and what is obvious becomes apparent immediately.

The Sex Lives of Politicians


What does it mean when a president engages in extra-marital sex? If a person disavowed everyone who cheated in a marriage, he might as well drop out of society and become a hermit. What about morality ? That is a significant topic but it is not relevant to the point of this article. Let  me explain why sexual infidelity is highly relevant in politics. It is a sign of something more significant. . Continue reading

Picture Of Huge Mis-Understanding

There is a huge misunderstanding voters have when they cast their votes in a national election. Sometimes a picture can explain an issue where thousands of words fail.  Many understand the perils U.S. citizens face today. Few understand that choosing a new leader will make little or no difference with respect to the future of the country. That is, unless citizens impose predominance over those they elect. There must be constant tension between voters and leaders. Constant demonstrative action is essential. Continue reading

Organized Crime Owns Your Government

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin was terribly misguided when he made that quote. Democracy had never been thoroughly tried, so he can be forgiven for not foreseeing that there were more serious issues with the abuse of democracy than what originates with ordinary people. So, the United States is organized as a republic and that is supposed to keep the masses from voting everything in the treasury into their own pockets.

Over the years, new sophisticated systems of exploiting weaknesses in democracy have evolved and are now used. Experience shows that the poor do not have the wherewithal to petition government. The poor have not actually tried to take anything from the rich.

The unwashed masses actually have presented no threat to any moneyed interests in the United States. They have proven to be a constituency worth buying by providing a few benefits to them over the years. But, no money has ever been voted out of anyone else’s pockets based on any actions by the poor. Instead, democracy turns out to be an incubator for crime, especially of the organized variety.

Organized crime, by financing campaigns and running its own candidates has taken over government. Why would they not? Who is to stop them? Suppose an organized crime syndicate is worried about the FBI. Why not just buy the FBI? Why break a law? Just pass a new law legalizing a previously illegal activity.  What do they do to keep the keep the public on their side? They buy all of the media outlets and make sure citizens only hear what they want them to hear.

Americans get confused. They see a massive group of migrants marching towards the border. The march is reported on as if it was some kind of organic event that has just sprang up? The migrants are presented as if they are no different than any other people coming to the United States looking for a better life. But they are different. The march is orchestrated and masses of poor people entering the country have great economic benefit to the elite who finance and organize these events.

The founding fathers were right, that with democracy, some potential threats would have to be addressed. They did not anticipate that organized crime would take over the country. There is talk about “the shadow government.” There really is no such thing. It is organized crime that dictates policy to congress. It is organized crime that causes senators and congressmen to step down, when their re-election is a sure thing.

But, many Americans benefit from the things organized crime does. That is temporary but some Americans will always benefit and that makes it difficult to re-establish law and order.

The founding fathers, like all historical figures were not at all like they have always been popularly portrayed. They were motivated out of self interest like all living entities are. The founding fathers did not provide a method for testing the constitutionality of laws. They may very well have purposefully left openings for the exploitation of ordinary people. The Supreme Court, a political body, ended up with the role of deciding constitutionality of laws.
