Maddow: Michigan governor thinks democracy is a ‘problem’

a few years ago i read a nice little prescient monograph from the Strategic Studies Institute of the US Army War College: “From the New Middle Ages to a New Dark Age: The Decline of the State and U.S. Strategy”, by Dr Phil Williams.

i’d thought that there’d be some time before the breakdown of the Westphalian nation-state, resulting in neo-feudalistic fiefdoms. unfortunately, it’d appear that it’s already started in this country among some of the state governments. these people don’t believe in the Constitution and don’t want the Constitution. regardless of their empty pleadings, they want the Articles of Confederation, in which the national government has no power whatsoever and each state is considered a separate nation-state.

 

simultaneously we have the anarchists who call themselves the ‘sovereign citizens’, who only obey the laws they wish to. they’re ultimately more dangerous than virtually any internal or external threat to the country, as they recognize only what they wish to, believing they have no obligations to the state or other citizens.

 

the people have discovered that they can vote bread and circuses in their faux populism. this was the immediate factor leading to the breakdown of the republics of Rome and Weimar Germany, for instance. we’re setting ourselves up to destroy this republic, putting a dictatorship in its place, following a period of feudalism or anarchy.

 

that is, if we aren’t invaded and conquered first, due to the logistics of neo-feudalistic ‘nation-states’.

 

this is exacerbated by corporate influence and rule, and the absurdity that a corporation can be considered a ‘person’ in the eyes of the law. in this respect, remember the Dred Scott decision and Jim Crow Laws.

 

just because it’s legal doesn’t mean it’s right.

 

it really wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for the nukes and military hardware, which make us a threat to every nation on the planet.

 

how is this going to play out? i’ve no idea. there are a lot of subtle and brazen forces moving about. the world is watching us lose our collective mind, as we spiral into a political psychosis.

 

it’s gonna get worse before it gets better.
