If the reader has read some of my earlier articles, he will remember that I believe most modern countries are run by “Power Groups.”
I definitely do not believe that the public runs any country except the very tiny countries of Europe and the tiny countries of Asia such as Singapore.
My reason for believing this is very simple. Every human on this planet looks to his or her interests first and then to the interests of the society in which he or she may live.
The reason? The survival of the group or species depends on the survival of the individual.
If an individual allows himself to be killed then the group will not survive. Because all the individuals that make up the group will ultimately be gone.
A “group” or “society” or “tribe” or “nation” is always an association of individuals. Each individual is looking to preserve his life and, also, to enrich his life.
Humans are a species, like most animals, that is forced genetically to live in groups.
Most fish, most birds, most mammals are forced to live in groups. There is protection in a group. Also, there is a greater ability to forage for food as a group.
Living in a group is the most important force in human society. Group living has immense advantages over solitary living.
But, it also has many disadvantages. The greatest disadvantage is the weakening of the cohesion and stability of the group by the greed of the group leadership. Other animals do not have this disadvantage.
A herd of buffalo or other ungulate is generally led by one or two powerful males. The only greed they have is for mating with females.
Humans, with their exceptional brains, can fantasize so complexly that their greed knows no end. This greed causes humans to tread on the verge of extinction.
Human society is today extinct simply because of the greed of its leaders. Entire societies, such as the Romans, have fallen into destruction, starvation and dissolution because of this one fact. Such a collapse can endure for many centuries.
Each individual will take advantage of the group, if he can, to enlarge his own power and his family’s power.
We see this always in every primitive society, and, until the last century, in every nation in the world.
POPULATIONS HAVE GROWN EXPONENTIALLY
As the human population grew in numbers, the old systems of tribal leaders and various forms of aristocracy became too cumbersome and too inefficient to deal with the millions of inhabitants of a nation.
In the 19th century we saw rebellions and revolutions across the world as these large numbers struggled for food and housing.
A representative system of government evolved and exists to the present in almost every nation on the globe. The people of each nation were convinced that the “representatives” would enact the wishes of the general public.
However, that never happened.
The “representatives” followed the same personal philosophy of their original ancestors. They did everything to make sure that they and their families would be safe and rich, and they continued to rob the public.
In this process they developed sophisticated means of tricking the population of their nation.
They used two primary methods of convincing the public that the public was in control of their government:
1. Through repetitive training, as a scientist would train an animal, they convinced the general public that the nation the people were living in, was the best nation in the world.
Since humans are group animals, that is, they feel protected in a group and have a genetic desire to be in a group; this constant training, from birth, in every school and in every facet of society was and is effective.
Ask any person on this planet what “nationality” they are, and they will proudly tell you their nationality. It is an absolute rarity to find a person who says: “I am X nationality, but I wish I were Y nationality.”
This is true because there are genetic markers involved and an historical endowment which the individual has been trained from birth to recognize as his personality. The language, the culture, the cuisine are all ingrained into the mental concept of what an individual believes is his endowment.
Because of these genetic and training effects, the individual believes that his nation is the best, and, its form of government is the best.
2. The way to keep millions of people from having revolutions and disrupting their society is to convince them that they have a direct impact on their government.
Every educated person on the globe knows that every government in the world is a “representative” government. This means that a few individuals control the government.
However, the general public is trained to think, and almost all believe, that they are living in a “Democracy.” A “Democracy” is a form of government, where all citizens have a right and also an obligation to vote on all laws.
The only time in the history of mankind that a true democracy existed was in Classical Athens in 508 Before Christ and lasted 180 years.
During this period of time citizens (not slaves, not women) would vote on each law and the majority vote determined the law. There were only 30,000 adult male citizens who had completed military training and were allowed to vote. Of these, 20 percent or approximately 6,000 actually voted.
Today, we have countries with hundreds of millions of citizens. It is absolutely impossible for these citizens to have a direct democracy.
Instead, governments have evolved controlled by self selected groups who decide which politicians the public may find attractive as a “Leader.” In reality, the self selected groups control the government in a form of group dictatorship, very similar to the government of China. For the present era, this form of societal control is the only form possible.
Unfortunately, because of the self serving nature of the present form of representative governments, the governments across the planet are becoming excessively powerful and throwing modern economies into states of imbalance.
The problem of the human species is one of food, clothing and housing. These needs require an equitable distribution of wealth.
Since the present form of government is one which favors small groups, wealth is aggregating in the hands of these small groups. In the past, when the general public became very hungry a revolution would ensue. We have not seen a revolution on this planet since the Russian revolution in 1917.
AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
In view of the fact that the USA, like almost every country on the globe, is a form of dictatorship, disguised as a “democracy,” the candidates who are presently vying for the presidential campaign are totally aware of the American political charade.
Obama, has decided to be president. I believe because of the honor it carries to his group: The African Americans.
On the Republican side of the ledger, we see only one honest candidate: Ron Paul, M.D. Since Dr. Paul is honest, he will never become elected according to the current political thinking.
I personally have no firm position on his electability. The man that is seen as electable is the multi-millionaire Mitt Romney.
Why would an extremely wealthy man wish to spend the rest of his life being chased by reporters, surrounded by body guards and incessantly worried about his personal safety? In my opinion, no sane wealthy man would want such a future. My conclusion: Romney will lose, and he knows it.
Therefore, Obama will be president for four more years.
This event will be the signal for the “power groups” to plunder the American population. Then we will see the fall of the “American Empire.”
The prelude started six years ago. The major part of the symphony is about to begin.
