Attaining Glory Upon Ruins

It took seventy years, but I am finally reading The Federalist. I finished Public Opinion by Lippmann, and it provided some valuable insights that are paying off in my comprehension of The Federalist. I think more people reading both would benefit mankind in general.

The US Constitution went into effect two hundred and thirty-three years ago, roughly. Since then, we have seen what happened. Of course, none of us saw it ourselves. We can only read about it or get information from others by some means. Today is very much a direct result of the ratification of the Constitution that was done before the electric light was invented, before the telegraph or telephone, and before travel was faster than an animal or ship. Neither of those nor any other development/invention has caused fundamental changes to the form of government those people, a small minority, setup so long ago. Well, none that were formally proposed and approved by the people the Constitution was supposed to serve and protect. The amendments do not constitute fundamental changes, in my opinion.

The federal government has definitely changed, though. The changes are the work of the very sort of people the opponents to the ratification listed as cause for rejecting it. Montesquieu ( foresaw the problems that took root after the ratification. Two of the delegates to the convention that created the constitution left in protest leaving Hamilton the only delegate from New York. He missed a lot of the convention, too. The two delegates, Yates and Lansing, were proponents of state’s rights. I think they realized, as did Montesquieu, that the federal government could not be kept secure from tyranny because it covered too much area and too many people.

We are living witnesses to the advanced results of what Montesquieu feared. He wrote, ” …an ambitious person soon becomes sensible that they may be happy, great, and glorious by oppressing his fellow-citizens, and that he might raise himself to grandeur, on the ruins of his country.” Even more than two hundred years ago people were aware of how to “gain influence by cajoling the unthinking mass, and ringing in their ears…” As we descend into abject tyranny, the mass clings to the cajoling noise that deceives their reason and intelligence.

People are waking up more every day to the tyranny we are under. They accepted the current level, though it was built on worse, in the name of protecting themselves and others from a virus. Though it cuts the carotid artery to the source of logic to yield to the nonsense derived from the virus, the intentions of the people were noble. It is time for the bleeding to be stanched and reason to return before it is too late. Tyranny for any reason will not feel good when the numbness wears off. Fear is such a numbing agent to reason!

I think we are seeing the beginning of the end of the advantages and the goals of the ambitious people who think they are rising to grandeur and power on the ruins of this nation. Anyone who cannot see yet that our nation is being ruined is too deeply immersed in the cajoling influence that dominates nearly all sources of information. Self-aggrandizing and extremely privileged people have become the true rulers of the world. They are only trying to come out into the open by their fear mongering over the virus. Other plans are being carried out as I write. Look for real pandemics and wars. Look for economic catastrophe on a global scale. The ruins of a nation are not enough to satisfy the type of person who can harm and kill a child, especially the type who can do so in quantity. Pedophilia and torture/murder of children is happening wholesale these days. That may be the only thing that can awaken the mass of humanity to reality, and that is sad beyond expression. But if that is the only way, at least it is a way.


Shaped Like Clay

Yes, way too many. I wish the false reality was only that created by the media. The entire human race is living in la la land. The subconscious rules without logic or reason. Born totally helpless, ignorant, and exposed people are like lumps of clay on a pottery wheel. They come into life with some characteristic just as clay is already clay. Even before birth life reaches into the womb and starts shaping the baby. The trauma of birth if followed by the profound and unavoidable forces of living. By the time a person is considered to be fully grown, the hands of living have shaped the person so much the person has already become most of what it will be.

The forming hands of living act upon the impressionable child profoundly. The child is not given the opportunity to influence the shaping and could make nothing of it even if it were given. The parents quickly begin to add their hands to the shaping. Eventually, and ever so slowly, the child begins to make choices, uninformed choices. Trial and error experiences act on the clay of the child. Then formal institutions begin to add to the shaping. By the time the person is able to make informed decisions about its shape, it is too late. The shaping has already been so extensive informed decisions are more subconscious than wise and the information applied is so damaged during the process of maturing it is more often than not incomplete and/or errors.

Millennia of generations have lived in small areas of a vast universe. Astronomical forces constantly shape the world, and people are only recently learning about them. Even the planet is too vast for the generations to be aware of it all and most global events impossible to know by first-hand experience. By now, human events created by seven billion people are profoundly affecting the lives of everyone and even with modern technology most people cannot be aware of them by first-hand experience. We are forced to rely on information reported. Since all that is reported comes from humans who have been subjected to the same influences that affect us all with slight variations, informed decisions and opinions have been impossible. Even so, Americans must make very informed choices, especially in elections. Without being able to base choices and decisions on the information necessary, people make them anyway. All this and more add to a compounding confusion that has become so mixed up it is really quite crazy. It is no surprise that history has been so bloody and horrible, or that there are so many horrors, deaths, destruction, and suffering today.

Mankind has not risen out of la la land yet, but some have gained enormous power. There are millions of rich people now. Some are so fabulously rich they have the power of life and death over the whole world. To my knowledge, they are all just people like everyone else. Experiences vary but not enough to make anyone different enough to be considered anything other than just people. Nor does it qualify them for the power they have. This does not prevent them from using it, though. Decision and choices they make have profound effects on everyone and everything. No form of life or inanimate object is immune to the effects of their choices and actions.

We are watching some very rich people virtually take control of the world by means of a spreading virus. There is not way to know where the virus came from of what its effects are. The reports available are controlled by the very rich people who are taking control of the world in the name of protecting us from a virus. They have been dictating what business and group is essential, which are going to be allowed to continue. They have acquired the power to tell us where to stand, to wear masks, to take injections they have created, and the virus has been used to profoundly affect the election in the USA. The entire human family of Earth is under their control. Politics and representative government have been bypassed in the implementation of the will of the very rich, but not left unaffected. Throughout all branches of all governments the power wielded by the very rich is becoming obvious.

Millions, maybe even billions of people have been made terrified of the virus, and similar numbers were made to have panic level fear of a president of the United States of America. Neither the virus nor the president are topics the vast population can make informed choices and decisions about. They get only the information that is approved for them. It only comes from people just like them in the sense that they too were shaped by forces they had little or no influence on. They just were born rich or became rich. That alone does not qualify them as trustees of the general welfare. In fact, it might just disqualify them since they are living in a world within the world.

The people I know are not able to comprehend the way the very rich live. They have enough trouble comprehending the world that comes within their reach. They see some of the things the very rich have, but their lives are simply too different to fully comprehend by people who have not experienced it. It is as if the rich live in a world within the world. Unfortunately, everything anyone does has at least some effect on everyone. The effects my be less than the effects of a shooting star, but effects are effects. When the rich do things with their wealth, which is power in the modern world, the whole world feels the effects. It is so profound it determines far more than most realize the quality of life for the billions of mankind. They are making it more obvious by the way the last president and the virus have been handled. Both were used to instill panic in the hearts of millions.

Someday, maybe, the world will see what is really going on. The power wielded by humans will be seen for the history it created. It seems to me that there is an inexorable force acting over mankind and the planet that is taking us to some wonderful denouement. I sense it all around us. I see it in the changes of the past century or so. I have become blissful, and it has lasted fifty years. I think that would not have been possible if the future were not bright.

The production ability of mankind has reached a level that makes it possible for everyone to have all they want for simply contributing to the production for a relatively short time. Limited as we are today to the resources and energy of earth, we are making our way into outer space anyway. Once the solar system is opened up to us, the potential will increase beyond imagination. There are none but the demonic who will not benefit. The demonic hate the idea of prosperity for all. I don’t know what happened, but I have unqualified ideas, to create people who want to destroy. They will not be happy to see mankind solve its problems and create prosperity and time to enjoy it for everyone. People who do not impose the restraints of ethics, morality, and goodness upon themselves have not had difficulty rising in power by means of money. Many have done so. Much of history and current affairs are being caused by them. But they cannot prevail. Their disappointment will likely be traumatic. My hope is that many will realize the improvements they too can enjoy. No rich person in the world today can enjoy what is possible. If they could see what is possible, they would join the effort to realize the potential. Guess what! One we reach a certain potential, an infinity of greater potential will come within our reach. If I wrote out just some of the potential that is already being realized in reality but not in the awareness of many people, you would not believe me. Such is the result of being born helpless in a world that has not realized enough of the potential yet. Love will come and with it wonders beyond belief at this time.


Democracy, Omnicompetence, and Money

Democracy means a lot to Americans. It is a cause worth killing and dying for to them. In the past several years, I have been studying to origins of democracy and its evolution. The founders of this nation were rather well versed in the tenants of democracy but there was plenty of disagreement. Given the status of human society at that time, it is not surprising that they formed the federal government the way they did. The history of human activity played a large role, too. When men were raiding and pillaging, when killing people was more common, and when the means of survival were hard to obtain the democracy envisioned by the democracy advocates appeared to be a solution. They did not see the future as it came to be.
The circumstances of life as they were when I was born seventy years ago hardly hinted at those that prevailed for thousands of years before nor of this day and time. The advocates of democracy two hundred years ago relied on the “omnicompetent” voters. The truth is; even then the voters were not omnicompetent. Today it is impossible for the voters to be competent at all.
Influences today are destroying the competence of the people. I have employed people for many decades. Training people to do things reveals people. What I am seeing today is stunning. Young people can be counted on to know video games and music of their choice. They don’t know what the vegetables are that I have in my refrigerator. They know almost noting about anything because they have spent their youth in the electronic world.
The long-term effects of cell phones and the internet are beginning to show. The effects of television have become clear already. All the values derived from millennia of human survival are vanishing, replaced by things that destroy the ability to survive. The number of people who are totally dependent on the social systems for their survival is nearing the total population of the planet.
We live in a world that requires of the people only the production of money for survival. The world has been conquered. Money rules. But money cannot sustain survival. Money is a social phenomenon. It has not nutrition. It cannot be used to shield us from the environment. It is not a weapon. If it is allowed to keep going as it is, there will be an adjustment. You will not like it.
