A Dictatrix at Work


Under the heel of government, the way each of us relates to the other 200-odd governments in the world is fixed by an arrogant group of a few hundred in D.C. The results may be, and often are, fatal.
Even worse than that happens when one person takes over the function, and runs it without supervision. That's the real significance of what Hillary did when Secretary of State, and her conduct augurs ill for how she would operate in the White House, were she to get the chance; or so I reason in today's ZGBlog, subtitled The "Why" of Chappaqua.

    "...You don't vote, I trust, but that need not stop us encouraging those who do from making sure that this megalomaniac never again crosses the White House threshold except as a visitor under close guard..."

You're right, Jim. I don't vote. Not only do I not vote, but I have no dog in the fight. Nor have I plans to enter a dog in the fight.

If the hoi polloi want to vote for Ms Clinton for grand wizard of the klan, that's fine with me. It will not affect me or those I love. Much. Or much more, I should amend, than a Paul, or a Trump. A Paul, or a Trump, might -- might -- delay the agony that is certain to preclude both your and my hope and goal: that coercive, warring, monopoly rulership will end in our lifetimes. I believe that it will indeed end -- hopefully within the time that I can remain cognizant and aware. But I fear it will end with much suffering on the part of the mass majority who believe in central political authority. For one thing, in order for central political authority to end, an entirely new, revised economic mindset on the part of each human being on the planet will need to be incorporated. "Bitcoin" and the like might play a roll. I don't know how that will play out, because a huge plurality have no access to personal computers and wouldn't know how to deal in cyber currency if they did.

I well remember how heart-broken I was the day the brainless masses voted in droves for Lyndon Johnson (and against my hero of the hour, Barry Goldwater). Had Goldwater "won", the ugliness that was Viet Nam very well might could have been avoided. I don't know. But Barry would not have affected the proclivity for government wars.

And what I do know is that I never again registered with civil government employees or "voted" in any of their bread-and-circus events. Karl Hess led me to Harry Browne, who led me here.

You have the right priority, Sam: terminate the system as fast as feasible, then the absurdities and hardships foisted upon us by its particular members will be no more than a bad memory.
The fastest way (in fact, the only way) I have so far seen for doing that is the exponential growth associated with the Freedom Academy, which will result in everyone repudiating government and so declining to work for it. It will then cease to exist. This matters above all else.
It necessarily takes a while, though; lightning fast compared to any other way yet tried, but still, several more years. In that meantime, there is (would you agree?) some merit in limiting the carnage caused by governments. It's desirable for example to influence the sheeple to pick a Führer who favors peace rather than war. War is so pervasive in its destructive power that it's not really true that it "will not affect me or those I love." Quite possibly, it might even wipe out the race.
Hence, at this moment, the need to steer public opinion away, if possible, from the Dictatrix from Chappaqua; additionally, I find it quite a lot of fun. I certainly don't favor the Libertarians for Trump idea, but I do reckon he might buy a little more time for us to get the main job done as above.
