At LewRockwell.com, Gary D. Barnett explains how, despite the failures of democratic, republican, and all other forms of government, humanity can defeat the evil of the state. He writes:
When one actually thinks critically, and honestly examines the idea of governing, regardless of which form of totalitarian domination is the flavor of the day, one thing instantly becomes certain; which is that each and every form of government and rule is an atrocity, and every form of rule can work together as one or separately, in order to claim control over a country, and even over all of humanity. The drive today of each and every form of government is to achieve but one goal; that goal is total globalization and supremacy through oligarchical control by the few in a digital and technocratic state.
Who sits atop this pyramid of power will not be decided by any asinine voting scheme, or by any of the mass herd of people who make up the miserable majority, although it likely will be presented by ‘your’ rulers differently, just as it has always been. Fooling the people has been an easy task, especially in modern times, as the intellectual capability of the masses has diminished greatly in this time of tremendous propaganda, dumbing down of society due to ‘public’ (government) schooling and media, fear, self-consuming identities, purposely created division, and blind indifference. What better plot could there be to control the sheep than to inundate them with false fear, hatred, bread and circuses, and to then make them dependent on their chosen masters as their protector. The god of the people has become the state; which is only the devil disguised as their savior; which is the same tactic used to create the pretended differences in the many political structures said to be unique in nature. They are not, as all lead to the very same outcome; power, control, and domination.
The bulk of society has become cold, non-caring, judgmental, violent, vindictive, self-absorbed, and apathetic to the good in life. This is a moral issue entirely, and the only way out of this hell that has consumed almost the whole of populations, is to seek real knowledge and improve self, instead of living as if the value of life has disappeared. It has not, but it cannot be revived or survive by dependency on others, especially the evil state. It can never endure ignorance and complacency as exists in our current circumstance, as each individual has to come to terms with what is right instead of what is easy. Without that clarity, and the courage to act on moral grounds regardless of risk, we are all doomed to live a life consumed by slavery.
The only conclusion that should be reached once the individual understands the heinous nature of the state in every form it assumes, is that so long as any state exists, freedom cannot exist. The state and freedom are polar opposites; neither can live or survive in the presence of the other. The choice is yours to make.
