When Governments Go Rogue...

The American dynamic was meant to be different. For the first time in history, a group of people organized an administrative body which was predicated upon the will of the general populace and not the will of the incorporated elite. ~ Brandon Smith - Excellent article

Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com delivers yet another powerful missive as he outlines the transgressions of a government that has gone completely rogue and counter to the founding principles of our Constitution. This one is a must read to the very last line.

There are those today who would claim that the lifeblood of a nation is dependent upon the graces of its government.  That government is the focal point of cultural growth, and that we as citizens should respect it as such. 

I would be more inclined to agree if the public did not so easily confuse the ideals of leadership with the actions of criminals.  That is to say, regardless of what we wish our government to be, bureaucracies rarely, if ever, embody the spirit of the common man (a necessity for any system that purports to defend the citizenry). 

Instead, bureaucracies almost inevitably deteriorate into vehicles for the perpetuation of tyranny driven by the very worst of all stewards; elitist minorities with delusions of godhood.

Unfortunately, despite this fact, the masses often treat these industrious vermin and the plagues of society that they build with the same reverence as they would a sincere and honorable body politic.

Government is not nor has it ever been a foregone conclusion.  Government is not concrete.  It is not tangible.  It is not the foundation of society. 

Instead, government is an abstraction; a fantastic dream of collectivist paternity in the face of individual hardship.  Those who fear to wander the world on their own courage, strength, and merit, seek to elevate and empower "decision makers" to provide the comfort of limited liability. 

Through this process, governments are created out of thin air.  All governmental authority is, thus, HANDED to those in positions of leadership. 

What makes one man a "king" and another man a "peasant"?  Only the people of a country, and where they choose to place their personal control; in their own hands, or the hands of others.
