My last post was entitled, “Trashing Government” where I pointed out that YOU are the government because we are a nation of free people and we have the vote. That means that at the end of the day, the government is us and we are responsible. Here is another point to ponder.

Our Government, with a capital G, has been doing a pretty damn fine job against  overwhelming odds. Why, you will ask? Listen up then.

The so-called Sexual Revolution of the sixties was entirely a broadcast media creation. Children have been going through puberty ever since people inhabited this planet — nothing new there. With the advent of television however, this process was packaged and sold to that generation as something new and strange which could be overcome by free love and public protest. It made for great press. The NEW generation with all the unassailable righteousness of raging hormones, was going to fix the injustice of the corrupt “Older” generation. They did this by holding sit-ins where they invaded a public office, sat on their a…s, chanted bad names at people, and refused to leave when they were told too. This adolescent silliness was never outgrown and this generation was afflicted with arrested intellectual development which they took with them into the voting booths (witness the last presidential election). And this, my children, is where the current blizzard of Snowflakes came from.

That generation of voters emerged into young adulthood thoroughly convinced of their own intellectual superiority because they had discovered that the world was not perfect. They were as loud then as they are now about what they labeled “The Establishment”  ergo, any responsible adult who has been down life’s road ahead of them and will say plainly that there is no quick, easy fix for the world.

For the past 50 years our government has been having to deal with these self-righteous imbeciles and their useless fault-finding. Their political obtuseness has led directly to a large National debt, financially bankrupt cities and towns and an emotionally bankrupt generation of children — their own. Yet we are still here. America is still a valid idea and this is due entirely to the thinking people in our governments who did not give up, who did not let the ignorant screeching deafen them to the words of our constitution, and who have endured and will continue to outlast the vilification heaped upon “The Government” by the vicious and the indolent among us.

We have a President who is getting things done. Do they like him? They do not. Several of this silly generation wriggled their way into government agencies like the FBI and the DOJ and are currently making spectacles of themselves by ignoring every law they don’t like and then blaming the POTUS and administration for anything and everything. I am just reminding you that this is typical of them. It is time here to do what was done then. Pick these idiots up bodily and remove them from the offices whose proper functioning they are obstructing. Our government agencies have more good people than bad in them or we would not still be here. They have stuck it out under miserable conditions because they are part of us just as we are part of them. We are all America. We are all “The Government.” We can prevail. And we will.

Here is another installment from my Politics For Pagans series.

 

Thinking Lesson Four — Trashing Government

Lesson four is going to be very short. And very important. I am speaking American now because I am one. so you who dwell in other parts of the western world wear this shoe if it fits.

It is fashionable now to trash “The Government.” “The Government” is corrupt. “The Government” is useless. “The Government” spends too much money.” “The Government” is stupid. Please keep these three things in mind when disrespecting the American “Government.” 

1.) Our government is functioning as it was designed to. 

2.) “THE VOTERS” of America are responsible for this mess — NOT — “THE GOVERNMENT.”

3.) When tracking results about public policies, there is a time lag of 15 to 20 years before the down side of what seemed like a good idea will manifest enough for communities to notice.

Think about it.

A. Farwell

“The Government”
is
YOU!!!

THINKING ASSIGNMENT #4

1.) What changes in design do we need to make to our political structure in order to clean up this mess?

2.) Keeping in mind the time lag mentioned in point 3 above, which generation of American voters are actually responsible for the nightmare mess of public welfare and social security?

Thinking Lesson Three

Peace On Earth

The social atmosphere in the western world is not peaceable. This is entirely due to a subgroup 1 from the Caucasian tribe of germanic tribal descent, in other words, white people.

I am talking about the broadcast media. If the media of the western world is being run by a different ethnic group I would like to hear about it.
Subgroup 1, the criminal, thieving, histrionic and history(HH) element is filling their pockets by targeting their own tribe because this sells stories more than anything else. The broadcast media is making money, lots and lots of it, off this behavior. At OUR expense.

Most of us are sick to death of their histrionics. Real news is important to every thinking adult and this subgroup 1 among us has turned the reporting of facts and information into a scandal mongering hen party that is an everlasting insult to our tribe, our individual selves, and our world. And people have been tolerating this mostly because they have no idea how to stop it. So—-here’s how we stop it.

Shut the TV off when the “news” comes on. Unsubscribe to “news” feeds on the internet. Cancel your subscriptions to the major “news” papers. Local papers are OK. (You know, the weeklies lots of the smaller towns still publish by a local owner.) In other words, shut down their market/shut their mouths.

You all may have forgotten that the Federal Government has an emergency broadcast system that will let us know if anything major is going on that we need to know about. They perform regular tests to insure that this system is in good working order. So we are covered for any real emergency. This is true for the whole western world. We also command the best, most effective militaries on the planet and believe me my fellow Americans/Pagans/Western Worlders, they are all on the job and we have them to thank for our daily safety. Not the “news” media. So Everybody, shut these scandal mongers off.

It will amaze you how much peace on earth there really is. It will also amaze you that you are capable of being your own “reporter.” Take time to talk to your neighbors, friends and family. Look around at your own community yourself to see what is going on. You are adults and you have a functioning brain of your own to use. Start depending on that instead of an electronic talking head that belongs to someone else. This should be the first step to reclaiming our own political clout.
We can no longer tolerate this malicious subgroup 1 giving themselves airs about their own importance to the rest of us. Not only are they not necessary, they are very much in the way.
Make a genuine beginning to Peace On Earth. It is up to us all.
Think about it.

If the entire broadcast media were to be destroyed overnight, what ill effects would overtake our society?

This is a post I just did for my non-christian website. I would like to share it here as well.

Thinking Lesson Two — The HH Factor

If you have never gotten the basics of political science this will be your most important lesson.

When dealing with any group of people there are two subgroups within every major one that you must coordinate with the HH factor. HH = history and histrionics(look that one up).

Subgroup 1. The ones who run their mouths to incite angry emotional responses.

Subgroup 2. What the majority of the rest of the group really thinks.

All social/political/religious groups have these two distinct subgroups.

The Jewish religion and its offshoot of Christianity are textbook examples of the HH factor in action.

The Jewish people of thousands of years ago were engaged in holy wars where they exterminated nations like the Canaanites for worshipping false gods. That is history. Whatever their religious history, the Jewish people today are family oriented, smart, talented, hard working, charitable, and peaceable. For all of these reasons they tend to prosper in life’s endeavors. Their ideas about being God’s chosen may be a trifle pretentious but really, who does that hurt? They do not insist, as does Christianity, that everyone has to believe as they do. Yet they are prime targets for a subgroup 1.

And Christianity? It rose to be the dominant religion in the western world because a small but well armed group started killing and torturing anyone who did not seem inclined to give up worship of their own(Pagan or Jehovah) Deities. That‘s history. Christianity became a target in its turn.

Oh all right! I will define histrionics for you so we can finish this lesson.

Histrionics

Noun, | ,hɪstri’ɑnɪks

: a deliberate display of emotion for effect

From DictionaryBoss online

Christianity climbed to the top of the religion heap through mass murder, torture, and thievery of its victims assets. Long ago, the Jewish people commited genocide in the name of their God and again, claimed all the assets of their victims. This is history. Before the rise of Christianity the Pagan religions were into forcing their daughters and sons to be temple prostitutes and many of the “worship” practises were orgiastic instead of spiritual. These practices generated a large income for the temples. This is history too.

Subgroup 1 constitutes the minor but very vocal rabble element, the extremists, the criminal element that exists in every major group. Those individuals who grab onto something speciously holy sounding to find fault with and therefore have an excuse to persecute one of the other groups..These are the warmongers, the ones who shout down the wishes of the majority in order to fill their own pockets. Did you notice the financial element in the group histories above?

Do any of you, Christian or Jew, or Pagan, want to be judged by the history of your ancestors? Do you feel personally responsible for what they did? Do any of you think it is ok to sexually molest and prostitute your children in the name of your Pagan deity? Is it ok to rob and murder your neighbors in the name of your god? The vast majority of you, no matter your beliefs, are going to answer NO! to all of the above. You are subgroup 2.  

Thinking Assignment #2

It is your job to deal with the subgroup 1 in your own system of beliefs. This is politics. How are you going to go about this?

Think about it.

Bonus Question

What subgroup1 in the U.S. is currently hogging the public eye with their histrionics against a major group?

From Americans to the Sports Industry Players—–

We watch football for fun. We watch any sport for entertainment. We form our own opinions and express them in editorials, web blogs and the voting booth.

We did not ask for and do not need your political opinions.

You all need to get over yourselves here.

The second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence of the thirteen united States of America opens with these much quoted words…

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.–

At the time Thomas Jefferson penned these words, this world was a much different place and the accepted criteria for the term ‘man’ was also different. Mr. Jefferson, you see, was writing for and about his peer group, Caucasian men of business who by their own talents, business acumen, and management skills, had created a certain amount of wealth and standing in their respective communities here in the New World. So when he wrote the words ‘all men are created equal’ he did not literally mean ‘all’ at all. The footmen who served at his and his peers tables and the coachmen and gardeners who serviced their estates were not under consideration here. Succeeding generations seem to have missed this very salient point. This constitutes the Error of Equality.

The people in these men’s communities appointed these business leaders to hammer out the political semantics by which they could all prosper according to their individual lights. All the fifty-six signers of the document were such men. There were no second footman, coachmen, or apothecaries assistants asked to sign this document. It was not written to express the opinions of the servant class in the colonies, and while the above mentioned were certainly male, they were not considered men in the public sense of the word. Servants, along with women and slaves, were considered dependents, and it was understood by all that they would be considered and provided for by the men who employed them or stood as father, husband, or owner.

The men of the British Isles were accustomed to have a say in public affairs through the process of voting and this custom was imported to the colonies. What American’s today do not remember or have never been taught is that not all men could vote, not even back then. Voting was a privilege earned through sound business practice, it was never considered a “Right” granted automatically upon coming of age to just any old body. A man had to be a property owner at a certain pre-determined monetary value in order to be allowed to vote in his community. This was true on both sides of the Atlantic. Since the colonies were populated at their beginnings by men and women who came to this country expressly to create their own properties it was generally and universally accepted that all voters in the colonies were experienced business people and at the beginning of this country, this held true. As the colonies prospered and filled with immigrants from Europe and the British Isles, this standard came under assault simply from the press of an increased population of immigrant workers with their immigrant worker mentality. When Women’s Suffrage came into play, a butt-load of feminine emotionalism was added to the immigrant worker mentality so that the sensible business standard upon which America got it’s start was totally overwhelmed by the touchy egotism of women and under servants, and now every political decision made in America today is based on lower class egotism and feminist emotionalism rather than good sound business practice. Is anyone out there still wondering where the national deficit came from?

This is a true and accurate account of our financial history, simply put, for the edification of the average reader. It is capable of almost infinite refinement for the more advanced but I will leave that to those who can lay legitimate claim to such advancement.

In a word, it has not been a good or a productive idea to give the management of this country over to women, children, and day laborers via some grandiose idea of voter equality rights. I remember during the Vietnam police action the antiwar “activists” made a big stink about drafting boys to fight at the age of eighteen but not allowing them to vote until they were twenty one. Anyone else remember that? Oh My God! That was soooo unfair! I do not remember anyone bothering to answer these dilettantes at the time but I do remember thinking—it doesn’t take any brains to kill someone, it does take some multilevel thinking to guide a family, city, state, or nation on a stable, prosperous path. A quality you will not find prominent in eighteen year olds of either gender. Using the antiwar activist standard of public fitness, we might have saved a certain state millions in legal costs and incarceration fees and simply elected Ted Bundy as President. He killed lots of people.
