Social Cycles of Diminishing Returns

On Laws of Diminishing Returns for Types of Organizations:

Collectives tend to be organized to purposes.  Parts that are valued tend to be devoted to coordinate the various needs of each collective.  Parts can be developed to levels that maximize the capacity of an organism to pursue its purposes.  The maintenance of each part is contemporaneous with an opportunity cost concerning what could have been done with the energy that maintains the part had it been devoted to other purposes.  A society consists of member parts that direct various energies to facilitate various of the society's purposes.  Applying some of a society's energy sources to preserve the physical and mental health and competence of the members that contribute to its purposes facilitates the efficacy of the society.  Taking energy from a contributing part to indulge non-contributing functions of other parts diminishes the efficacy of a society.  When the efficacy of a society as a whole diminishes, the sense of well being of all its parts tends also to diminish.  This inefficacy produces diminishing returns for the well being of the society and all its members.  Individual parts sometimes conspire to work together as parasites to pursue subsets of well being at the expense of the well being of the system of the set as a hosting whole.  As parasites increase in activity, they reach points of diminishing returns, such that they ruin the health of the host.

Societies often benefit by centralizing governance that can redistribute resources to better preserve the welfare and mental health of its needed members.  For awhile, increased devotion of resurces to purposes of centralization may enhance needed redistributions.  After awhile, a society may come to consist mainly of resource takers (redistributers and redistributees), to the neglect or weakening of resource producers.  Then, increases in centralization and regimentation tend to make the society inefficacious to its purpose of enhancing the well being of its members.  Centralization begins to produce diminishing and even destructive returns, sort of like an out of control dive by an airplane that has lost its engine.  Alliances of parasitic takers (redistributers and redistributees) begin to find ways to barricade themselves from the producing members of a society, so that producers cannot stop them from continuing to cannibalize and weaken the society as a whole.  The increasingly centralized empowerment of such parasites reaches an apex of selfish efficacy, and then puts the system as a whole into a nose dive of a collapse.  Even if the class of proudcers wakes to the the danger, the awakening often comes too late to avoid catastrophe.

I doubt there is any simple one on one causal relationship, but a complex sloshing brought on by hubristic over centralization and its inevitable spoliation of social trust. Waves of mass hysteria are brought on by out of whack central planning. Americans at home are producing fewer things other peoples want to buy. They can't eat bureaucracy and 2000 page laws. So capital went overseas. There, it produced potemkin villages that the natives could not afford to habitate. So, capital re-diverted to produce more cheap goods to sell to Westerners, leading to price deflation for Westerners. Eventually, foreigners may be first to experience inflation, in respect that dollars paid by Americans don't purchase much from an America that does not produce much.

Printed money tends mainly to be siphoned to crony capitalists. As America became non-competitive, there was less for cronies to invest in, in America. So they held their money or put it overseas or in art, gold, or jewelry --- the kinds of things the little people tend not to buy. Printing money is meant to ease America's debt on the backs of foreigners. So long as foreigners have little choice but to accept fiat dollars, and so long as investment in industry in America does not take off, the printed money does not compete to drive up prices at home. (So long as America ensures the peace, this does not seem unfair -- except that America is no longer so much in the peace insuring business.)

This will change, as surely as waves slosh back and forth. The crony hedgers (and their hired shills) who can control the timing of the sloshing tend to benefit at everyone else's expense. They've got you coming and going. Until they kill their own host. Meanwhile, they will monetize debt until it becomes unsustainable, either because no amount of fiat money can serve the interest, or because there is no industry adequate to distribute real buying power.

Printing money does not in itself cause deflation. It is the circumstances that lead to the current printing that are leading to deflation. For now.

Obama's program is one of treason to overturn the republic and to consolidate the rule of an establishment that hates the American Ideal.  His program is to change the republic from one that represents citizens who want to enjoy the freedom and dignity to express themselves without being intimidated by goons and thought police.  Obama wants the masses to be in equal servitude to elite rulers who have been "enlightened to know best."  The establishment of godforsaken elite rulers and their goons has been nearly completed.  Finishing touches are being put on the pacification of the ruled class.  Everything the regime does is filtered to this purpose, which is driven by red-eyed hatred of independent minded, self reliant, competent Americans. 

If Congress did not consist of shills ensconced for the same purpose, it should have removed Obama long ago.  The establishment has ensconced a Congress that is treasonous to the ideal of a free and representative republic. The mind-numbed electorate has ensconced a red eyed hater as President of America.  Obama has ensconced two Supreme Court Justices who cater to his program.  High level civil and military servants are likewise being replaced with servants of the anti-American establishment.  Each new regime drone is expected to establish like drones.  We are seeing geometrically increasing lines of drone dominos being placed and tipped to bury America and the West.  Trillions of dollars of fiat money are disseminated to the purpose.  Soon, mosques will likewise increase, geometrically. 

All the money and power in the world are being focused to the subjugation of middle class people everywhere.  Liberal and libertarian women and femimen have no clue concerning the quickening evil that they are greasing.  They are helping to drown the only people who could restore decency:  the people who apprehend the importance of faith in a Reconciler, loyalty to family, and fidelity to a representative republic.  Without faith, family and fidelity, most of humanity will be greased to serfdom.  But maybe the dope and sex will be good.

**********

Obama is an atheist who greatly admires and sympathizes with Muslim totalitarianism. He likes the idea that those who mean to rule the State should hire elites to lead the masses to believe the State knows best in all things. He likes the idea of worship of the State. To obtain statist rule in the West, he seeks to de-define the family and replace the authority of parents with that of the State. To accomplish this, he holds out carrots. Those carrots include tolerance of whatever depravities are needed to induce support from lofos and addicts. To make such inducements palatable, he joins with those who try to discredit the idea of any higher Reconciler or that any moderation or self discipline in drug or sexual proclivities is needed. For political calculations, he does this while lying and claiming to be a Christian. Were the regime to obtain enough power, and were it to deem sticks to be needed and helpful to the consolidation of central statist control, its fronts, like Obama, would not hesitate to use sticks. Obama's fundamental principle is that people like himself should rule without having to dispute with any self-ruling middle class. Obama is to Mohammad as Allah is to the State.

Churches can't teach traditional morals without losing multi liberal tithers. Schools can't teach morals without being accused of bullying or cultural intolerance. Parents can't teach their kids to advocate for morals without endangering them to suspension or sentencing them to quietude. Employers can't enforce standards without being accused of racism or bigotry. Regulators can't teach assimilative morals because that would run counter to the program of the establishmentarians who divide, rule and own their bosses. Profs can't teach morals if they want to get tenure. Media makes its money by broadcasting sensationalism, i.e., rampant hedonism. Psychiatrists can't label anti-social behaviors as abnormal without being accused of hateful and phobic bigotry. The people who profit from this state of affairs are nothing if not demonically corrupt and ignorant. Who can stand against this super hurricane of social insanity?

If morality as a derivative of selfish genes can be appreciated without a leap of faith, then can a book of moral commandments be objectively and non-supernaturally derived or inspired from such a notion? I doubt it. Which is why I suspect atheists and agnostics tend to be not nearly as free of supernatural hangups as they may imagine. Concerning the supernatural, their words seem often to signify contrary to their actions. Greenies, warmers, utopians, addicts, pagans, hedonists, commies and darwinists all seem to have their own leaps of faith and somewhat supernatural passions, purposes and codes of moral conduct -- even if off the beaten path. Even so called objective analysists are often quite passionate and caring about their so called uncaring and indifferent ratiocinations.

I suspect police tend not to like to train people who are too smart because they get bored with the work and may not reliably follow orders. http://thefreethoughtproject.c...
For a smart person to get past that hurdle, it would probably help if he/she were gay or a minority. Maybe that's why police chiefs are often blacks. I suspect the police will hire smart minorities.
Moral: If you're smart and want to do police work, you may want to claim some minority blood and act gay. And don't try too hard on the entry examination.

I think David Hume and Adam Smith, of the Scottish part of the Enlightenment (as distinguished from the Continental Romantics), were concerned with appropriate respect for the moral sentiments that acquire a kind of gravitas with usage over time. If I am remembering rightly, they surely did not advocate the kind of wholesale, romantic, sudden and fundamental destruction of faith and family-based values that is being wildly pursued by the homosexually militant, gender-bending, Obama-fronted establishment of the cannabis-headed, socialistic cannibals of today.

Much depends on how the money being printed is being timed and matched to people who will spend it, invest it, or hold it. I think predicting that tends to be a wild card that is played by wild men who think they can and should use their bird dogs to flush the people around like sporting grouse. As to how they play their bird dogs, most of us are guessing in the dark. We need to fashion ways to reduce their central hold on the game, if that is possible. The invisible hand seems preferable to the over powered crony hand. At some point, the system will have to take its medicine.

Our currency problem is a canary singing about our centralization problem, generally. Our central establishment elites are long past being worthy of trust.

No ponzi scheme whose creators profit by conning the public trust can go on forever. The party tendeth to precede the hangover (even though some happy few get to indulge themselves by dying while drunk). Societies often benefit by centralizing currency control and governance so they can redistribute resources to better serve the welfare and mental health of their members. For awhile, increased devotion of resources to purposes of centralization may enhance needed redistributions. After awhile, a society may come to consist mainly of resource takers (conniving alliances of redistributers and redistributees), to the corrupt weakening of resource producers.

Then, increases in centralization and regimentation tend to make the society inefficacious to its general purpose of enhancing the well being of its members. Central management begins to produce diminishing and even destructive returns, sort of like an out of control dive by an airplane that has lost its engine. Alliances of parasitic takers (redistributers and redistributees) seek ways to barricade themselves (behind complex deceits and professions of elite expertise that defy common sense) from the producing members of a society, so that producers are stymied from stopping them from continuing to cannibalize and weaken the society as a whole.

The more this accelerates, the sooner it reaches its apex. The increasingly centralized empowerment of parasites reaches its apex of selfish efficacy, and then puts the system as a whole into a nose dive of a collapse. Even if the class of producers were to wake through the fog of deceit to the danger, the awakening tends to come too late to avoid catastrophe. The longer the fog of delusion, the more painful the recovery. Simply put, crony elites tend to float not to help us, but to screw us -- as hard and deep as they can.

A bigot is a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices. There are times when one's opinion is correct and needed. Hitler probably thought Patton was a bigot. In some respects, however, I think Patton's bigotry was a good thing in its time and place. On the other hand, I find little that is good in your obstinacy and intolerance concerning various commenters at American Thinker.

Illiterate means having little or no formal education. One can become educated in grammar while remaining ignorant in many other concerns. Your incapacity to respond to points of argumentation except by name calling marks you as a likely illiterate. Maybe even a bot.

People are concerned about their country. They're pointing out dangers, and you're engrossed in their grammar. You go, gender girl.

What should be America's interests, and what are the Establishment's interests? Is Obama seeking to degrade ISIS, America, or both? How should Congress mediate? The ingredients include competition for oil money, primitive authoritarian based culture, rabid religion, individual incompetence outside placement within sado-masochistic hierarchies, rampant distrust and envy. Who but a despot could govern any part of such a society? In such a mix, what despot could govern without inflaming hatred against exterior scapegoats? Or inculcating dreams of apocalyptic glory, to be hurried on by seeking nukes? Who can or should care about such a mentally deranged people, apart from keeping them off balance, quarantined, and militarily stalemated? What "solution" can there be, especially so long as their derangement is actively invited and propagated by our own Agitator In Chief?

Donor Class Progs feel our pain like Slick Willie feels women. Hang onto your wallets! If women can be adamant that "no means no," then why can't ordinary taxpayers? Well, financial rapine via crony politics is still legally and socially permissible. Both our laws and our mores are failing to protect working America from foreign and domestic financial rapine and wholesellers of gov contracts. Our borders are shredded more than the dress of any captured slave girl. Our advantage-taking plotters and community agitproppers seem to be wiping the board of well-meaning statesmen who want to preserve republican liberty.

To restore social trust, ways need to be found to get political kickback and agitprop games under control, or at least to make them less remunerative if not more punishing. If nothing can be done to bridge the increasing chasm of distrust and dislike between the Ruling Class and the Ruled Class, then the ponzi schemes by cronies for piling bad money higher and deeper will accelerate until they all implode of their own weight. At that time, social trust will hit its nadir and capitalism will return to race and creed based tribalism.

Race baiters and crony manipulators need to think carefully about what they really want. The writing has been on the wall for quite some time, and the dots of destruction are rapidly connecting. Establishment Rinos and Dinos, blinded by godless greed and godforsaken envy, are slingshotting us towards a kind of Helter Skelter, not so different from the criminally insane ideas and ideals of Charlie Manson. The head chopping and people burning outrages of ISIS and its god perverting cheer choirs seem to be symptomatically consistent with rampaging evil in the world. In his red eyed hatred of America, Obama is not so different from a cleaned up Manson, and he can read from Totus without an accent when he wants to.

If Paul wants to do something constructive, he should try to end whatever may be the Fed role in criminalizing interstate commerce in marijuana. Leave the matter to the internal concerns of the States. If all gov methods of warring on drugs are counterproductive, then let each State experiment and learn that for itself.

Anonymous said...

Feds requiring States to avail marijuana as a medicine is part of the regulatory environment that will incent pushers and pimps. It's sort of like regulating to require parents to send kids to schools to be indoctrinated by Obama's favorite pimps in the joys of gaydom and dopery. And these regulators come equipped with frightful powers of enforcement under various goonish Fed agencies. This whole Obamination thing is to America as the iceberg was to the Titanic. Fed forced perversion of faith, family and fidelity will be our undoing.

Regulate and Commerce are words Congress takes to give it license to do whatever the hell it wants. I don't know how we can, with mere words, regulate the commerce of Congress in the commercializing of its willingness to sell its product. The people need to insist that national reps get out of the weeds (pun intended) and back into what's important: Saving and defending the republic, its borders, and its economy.

In almost every case, Obama's solution for people who choose a poor, irresponsible, or bad lifestyle is to put the responsibility on the part of the collective that did not choose a poor, irresponsible, or bad lifestyle. Obama besmudges the one part of society that acts decently and responsibly: Reliable, productive parents who have jobs and love their children and country.

Were Obama a fireman, he would try to put out fires by putting water on all the houses that are not on fire. His solution to misery is to reward those who help him to spread misery. However, the way to reform a bad acting child is to reform the child, not to reward the child for bad acting.

There are parents who fail as parents, in poor and rich homes alike. Some bad, rich children found a way to feel good about themselves by helping to make Obama one of their own. Now, they want to feel good by paying that model forward. Obama and the like were raised in some very screwy homes. Now, they want to make all of America just as screwy.

Even before the Constitution was adopted, there were federalist advocates for a strong central government versus anti-federalists. Factionalism was in the nation's genes at the get go. I believe Washington warned of factionalism in his Farewell Address. Until the fiasco with the election of Jefferson/Burr, foresight concerning political parties was lacking. I assume the problem was not much discussed because it is such a natural conundrum. (Forty five years ago, as a student, I thought a hierarchical system of levels of electors may help produce laws that were more congenial to a broadly free society. I now much doubt that there is any "best" form. Circumstances change.)

I think Hume considered how moral sentiments acquire a kind of gravity with successful application over time. Problem is, he seems not to have appreciated the need for instilling receptive humility under an inspiring idea of a higher Reconciler. He seems to have replaced metaphysics and self interest with moral sentiments, but to have seen no need for inspiring ways outside law for reconciling oppositional moral sentiments.

Nowadays, kidlike elites seem to think they can, with objective science, suddenly unburden themselves of longstanding social traditions without net negative blowback. I don't think they have a good grasp of the limits of "social science."

I would like to see a Conservative Party. That said, hope of a conservative synthesis, given how divided we have become in our wannas, will likely be disappointed. Even so, a start needs to be made. We need a spark and a leader to grasp it.

Some amendments may help to restrain the domestic power of the feds. Some recissions of amendments are in order. Particularly to rescind the 17th Amendment. It may help to limit the feds ability to tax by confining it to limited forms. Maybe give border states concomitant powers to police their borders. But the main problem pertains to how to reduce the political influence of foreign interests and cronies. For that, I have not fathomed a solution. Yet.

A better word is needed, and "gaying" may be better. Advertising seems to have caused feminism to be associated with fashion foppishness, individual weakness, hatred of individual competence, collective and familial irresponsibility, confusion, social radicalism, entitlement mindedness, shallow celebration of evil cultures, demands for immediate gratification, and squealing delight in voting for a smiling hater of America.

Whatever the best name for such association, it marks the turning upside down of Faith in a higher Reconciler, loyalty to Family, and Fidelity to a representative republic. Instead, it wants faith in the hive, loyalty to the despot, and fidelity to fickle pleasure. I think strong women who are of faith, family and fidelity are feminine. But that kind of femininity is apparently too threatening to today's metrosexual male. The femininity that is desired by femimen is of a quality that is as fickle, flippant and foppish as they are. Indeed, the best femininity for such "males" seems to abide in other such males.

I regret that this new idea of femininity has become the aspiration of many boys and girls. The crony jerks who twist our culture twist every good thing, so that every good word is coopted to their twisted purposes. It is sad that words like gay and feminine have become so twisted. I don't know the best word to express detestation for the role confusion that is being firehosed upon us. The gaying of America may well be a better description than the feminizing of America. Or, perhaps better yet, the godless, godforsaken perverting of America. For which Gorgeous Boy Barry is the exemplar par excellence. I hope self respecting Blacks figure this out, the sooner the better.

The best of America's men are recruited and sacrificed to defend the liberty of a Western Civilization that has broken faith with them and become far more interested in unearned crony pull and security than in liberty. The resuit is an utterly frenchified and feminized West. This is how the monied interests of the West have "invested" in government and how their "science" has been flipped to farcical foppery and "nuance."

In the East, the worst of the men have inherited rights to wealth and harems. The wealth of the East is applied to recruit the rest of its men to divert them to jihad. And, when they are not seeking goats, to seek the women of the West -- to recruit or terrify them. Many of the women they now seek to subjugate were formerly males.

In choosing between femimen of the West versus jihad men of the East, the feelings of security-seeking feminazis and femimen are in a state of confusion. For guidance, they hearken to the buzz of the hive. They are all for the hive because, for them, there is nothing outside the hive. Not even science. This is why Jews who have supports outside the hive tend to be as hated now as in 1939. Now, the hive-minds are coming for the Catholics.

Meanwhile, the worst among us are indoctrinated that, because they help to sink the republic, they are the only fair-minded non-racists. This is how "YT" has essentially volunteered to be made the dhimmi of both the incompetent and third-world femimen of the West and the goat lovers of the East.

Have you yet thought of a single thing Obama has done that promotes the American Ideal of individual freedom and dignity, as opposed to "YT owes me"? How many times do we have to watch a crap show to realize, objectively, that it is crap? Do you suppose the cloud that forms Obama's character will suddenly part and let through rays of sunshine? How many times must the stage tolerate a poor mouthing player (even if he is a talented con artist), before the hook man is called?

It's not the flip in color, per se, that worries me. It's the flip in character and culture. And the FACT is, the establishment has contrived to produce a culture that has indoctrinated most minorities to deem it their moral and legal right to burden whites for nothing more than being whites. This crap has to stop, or there will be hell to pay. And too little mercy.

We are not a nation of law abiding, America loving immigrants. We are a nation of criminal invading parasites who will kill their new host with nary a thought. We are also a nation of corrupt cronies who lust for the short term profits of cannibals. And, we are a people many of whom have been led far astray from decent sentiments, who have been hopelessly misled by fake carers and false elites. We are a people the brains of whose youth have been besotted by benumbed, mindless maniacs. And, we are the nation and people to whom much of the rest of the world looks for its security. Sweet dreams are made of these.

Among Jews with brains beyond their petty pleasures and grievances who do not want another holocaust, they would do well not to work so hard to help Progs undermine the moral fabric of America.

2) Allow the rest of the world to go through its starvation events without futile attempts at intervention.
3) Police non-OECD states to punish aggression but without futile attempts at nation building.
4) Start the transition to the post fossil fuel economy by developing thorium-burning molten salt reactors.

A Borg Forecast, or Plan for the World, has been in the works for a long time. It calls for continued demoralization of middle class workers, to be heralded by glorious new regimes of enlightened experts and elites. The strategy for achieving the Borg Forecast is:
1) Treat all borders of advanced economies as non-existent.
2) Run the faucet of quantitative easing until all parts of the globe are equally awash in worthless dollars.
3) Tune demographics and genetics to produce alphas and lots of episions, while reducing betas.
4) Deploy AIs to collect complete facts about every breathing person.
5) Develop spying algorithms that can serve the regime on an as needed basis that can empower, eviscerate or exterminate every breathing person.
6) Establish corporatist territories for every statist satrap within a grand syndicate of totalitarianism.
7) Deploy thought police worldwide to eliminate "future crime."
8) Root out all vestiges of guidance-seeking that are based on belief in any Reconciler that is thought higher than the Borgdom.

Churches are vital and God is our foundation. Yet, too many churches and pastors are twisting history and collective responsibility to make themselves apologists for totally intrusive government. I would like to see some sermons that distinguish the roles of states, churches and individuals in Christian charity.

Anonymous said...

When Christianity plays a role in countering statism, it is indirect. When Christianity helps produce good and strong families, it lessens the political pressure for States to intrude in a totalitarian way in family concerns. When pastors try to recruit statism as a source of "charity," they undermine both the republic and their own churches. Yet, this is precisely what they do!

Congregations are needed to put checks on the worst political tendencies of their pastoral hierarchies. Problem is, as congregations dwindle, pastors try to replace them with third worlders. The consequence is that families and individual responsibility are receding and being replaced by dignity-killing totalitarianism. An awakening may help the republic, but hierarchical churches will kill it.

The fundamental idea behind federalism is that different approaches may be appropriate to different times, places and states. If we want peaceful change under a representative republic as opposed to a knowitall regime, then such change tends to proceed in incremental phases. A politician who respects the serenity prayer is not necessarily unwise on account of it.

I don't know about "free will," but it is self evident that we enjoy and express participatory will. With regard to God as a knowable source of moral laws that can tell us how to decide every choice with precision: No mortal can precisely know the mind of God. At best, we can inculcate receptivity to meditation and prayer for guidance. And we can come together in godly forums to inspire and assimilate for decent human freedom and dignity.

Because we have participatory will, the only moral absolute we have is not in any specific law that is precisely determinative and free from exceptions in all cases. Rather, our only absolute is in respect that a good and caring Reconciler abides, who guides those who become receptive. There are but two rules to guide us (with many illustrative parables), and they are generally, not specifically, determinative: Love God, and love thy neighbor. These rules may be considered as two sides of one: Be decent! For pursuit of decency, a strategy is: Be of good faith; value your family and friends; and, because it is your common bulwark against evil, defend the representative nature of your republic.

I doubt Obama would have been reelected without Bill's assistance. I doubt Obama would have survived Benghazi without Hillary's complicity in the lies that went every which way. Considering how much Obama owes the Clintons, it's a bit surprising how much he hates them. Stalin was that way. Few people dared in the least to oppose Stalin and lived to tell about it.

Russ, I am glad you and Sam Leeback and others are hitting on the key point. Once you get past the dogma (look up the List of Christian Heresies sometime -- whew!), the most important thing a church can do is to help people and families develop goodly backbones. Character. If people look to what Jesus said and center on His two rules, they can worry less about eternal salvation and get on with what's practical and of value in the here and now. If they will do that, they may begin to notice how much ungodly corruption has invaded every important institution -- including churches.

Base desires can get the best of all but the saints. Whether or not they're coordinated, the members of our connected donor class, in the misleading names of "equality, fairness and charity," have twisted our governments, churches and schools to their base desires, to favor the consolidation of central power to the destruction of individual and familial responsibility. When a man consents that his every action be overseen by a ruling class, whatever he is, he is not a man.

Why have leaders of churches, foundations and political parties brought Americans so low? Significant reasons include the strings attached to contributions to churches, foundations, schools and campaigns. When a donor is able to use contributions to get his program for "fairness and charity" adopted all at once by churches, foundations, schools and politicians, the combined focus and effect becomes quite formidable. I suspect tax deductions for elitist run institutions of phony fairness and charity (and now, planet saving) have much to do with the perversion of our republic.

The body of our electorate, when it thinks, is not especially in the camp of corrupt or faux progressives. However, many leaders in our churches, foundations, schools and donor class are. Tenured leaders not outed by term limits can be quickly blinded to lust and money. The bodies they lead need to do more of what Karen Lugo did, to confront our blinded leaders with effect. In that way, they can hope to restore our institutions to their proper and limited purpose -- which is mainly to instill goodly backbones in individuals and families.

If 75% of the Ferguson townspeople have city warrants against themselves, why have the townspeople elected the people who run the place? Did the voters get hoodwinked by deceits of false promisers? Why is their wrath not focused against the officials they elected, who hire the police? Well, perhaps because a city of thugs and welfare addicts that is dominated by "progressive" slum lords, strip joints, brothels, gambling joints and outside speculators owning vacant land is not fit to govern itself. So, whose fault is that?

On a more encompassing scale, if the Ferguson model of falling for lying promisers continues to be adopted nationwide, we will have the Ruling Class imposing such insults nationwide. Promising to make the Ruled Class equal by taking out the Middle Class ("Whitey") is the prelude to the sheeple farm. If you don't want to live on a sheeple farm, then don't vote for sheeple farmers or banana republicans. If you live in a community that continues to elect corrupt people, then get out of there. Stop thinking big government that is run for corrupt cronies can ever provide a decent solution. Stop thinking that running off the responsible people will solve local problems. Stop falling for the hate Whitey poison that comes out of DC and Chicago.

I would say that bias against some of the Ferguson regulars shows good survival sense. I would say that Americans have a legitimate grievance against Ferguson. But the only ones you see looting the place are the anti-Americans. That is induced in part because they expect to be rewarded for it by the regime.

The hatred of Obama and Holder for the American Ideal could almost be an accessory before the fact. Unfortunately, the only fingerprints left on the casings were those of their sacrificial dupe. Meanwhile, the media helps ramp up their favorability ratings. America is becoming Ferguson, and Ferguson is Bananaville.

Obama and especially the Clintons are served by Masters of Pre-Vet. Like Pelosi and Reid, they know how to play rope-a-dope with accusations that lack the punch to slay them. They know how to mug for sympathy by pretending to be falsely accused. They know how to let the public heat simmer until their shills of media and law can blow coolness or diversion. In that way, they attract their base: crowds of admiring wannabes. They know how to cheat to take what does not belong to them. They so despise middle class Americans that they celebrate their strengths in arts of conniving, cheating and deceiving. What doesn't kill them makes them stronger. If thou wouldst strike the king, thou must slay the king. You've got to whup the champ.

Typical Repubs, on the other hand, tend to be more honest. They can be shamed. When they sense they are becoming unpopular, they often fade or resign. Nixon resigned. Bush faded in his last two years. Romney faded after the Crowley set up. Dems aspire to be professional wrestlers. Repubs often aspire to be statesmen.

Well, they're stirred up by the people who run city hall. Those people are the owners of the strip joints, gambling joints and brothels. People like Larry Flynt. And the speculators who own vacant land. You know, the upscale Progs and pimps. The people who ran off Whitey, meaning the middle class families that still believed in faith, family and fidelity. The Prog people pocket their filthy lucre and then blame Whitey (i.e., every American of every color who adheres to the American Ideal) for the messes they cause.

Ferguson is a case study in just how absolutely wrong headed Liberals and Libertarians are when they suggest that faith, family and fidelity (social issues) are not important to a free republic. When the local Progs and pimps can no longer hoodwink the townspeople, they call for national help from the Department of inJustice and the WhorHous transplanted from Chicago.

On a larger scale, the DOJ and WH are doing the same thing to the nation, by inviting in a lot of diseased and illiterate third worlders who will no doubt fall right into the Prog meme for infesting America nationwide with Bananavilles. Worst President Ever!

It's quite simple, even for an engineer. A republican is someone who wants to preserve the republic. A Rino is someone who pretends to be a republican who wants to erase the border. A rabid Rino is someone who wants to destroy the Conservatives who want to preserve the representative nature of the republic and its borders.

The problem is the demographics. By that I mean the attempt to flip the demographic to turn the majority throughout the nation into an easily misled and cheaply bribed herd, like we see in Ferguson.

What is more important in enforcing the line: Being perceived to be "fair" in respect of some racially, self-interested voting bloc, or reinforcing the representative nature of the republic? If you are choosing a "fair date," say 5 years, without reference to whether the effect will be to set in stone a two class society, then you cannot legitimately call yourself a "republican" in any traditional, American sense. Not even if you capitalize the R.

More than that, if you align with those who want to undermine all who want to conserve the republic, then you have ventured into treachery. You might as well ask, "What difference, at this point, does the border make?"

I can just imagine Six Sigma being applied to mega businesses for lobbying, bribing, pimping, pushing, advertising, grifting, money laundering, bureaucratic empire building, loan sharking, slaving, spying, black mailing, intimidating, stock churning, credit default swapping, educating, researching, regulating, monopolizing and plundering. I wonder, how many people nowadays get rich just by designing a better mousetrap?

America does not exist for the sole reason of fattening the wallets of cronies. So, who are the real "OWNERS" of America? Who owns the gov? Are the owners "we the people" or "we the crony corporatists"?

Six Sigma sounds a bit like a reprisal of TQM (Total Quality Management). Maybe good for free enterprise, perhaps not so good for crony corporatism. Nowadays, with the flattening out of management and the emergence of mega-corporations, it becomes hard to detect the line between free enterprise and crony kickback corporatism. Or between producers, grifters and shills.

I somewhat distrust the application of scientism (or six sigma for sheeple grifting) that is secondary to ownership of govs by cronies and regulation by kickback Representatives. The effect of crony corporatism is to turn citizens into serfs, cronies into owners, and America into a country pillaged under flags of corporatists. When applied to crony corporatism, Six Sigma sounds like something Pharoah would be interested in -- for making a religion of building pyramids and fiefdoms. Or Saddam, for establising a corporate kind of omnipresent spy auditing.

Crony corporatism is union syndicalism for mobster investers in gov. Under cover of international corporatism, regulatory cronies are erasing America's borders even as jobs and industries are exported.

I am as tired of the myriad forms of corporate welfare and crony unionism as I am of small time welfare and unionism. They both lead to a two class society comprised of the Ruling Corrupt and the Ruled Ignorant. Six Sigma sounds like a religion for aligning Corrupt Rulers and Ignorant Serfs against ordinary Americans. If six sigma as applied to crony corporatism were so good for America and mankind, then why has it come with the shredding of the American Ideal of individual freedom and dignity?

The Number One problem for America, to remain America, is to get the black-belted, donor-crony, cannibal class under decent control. As to how to begin making that happen, it's time for churches to have a respectable dialogue with American congregants. If they fear tax reprisals, then it's time for Americans to start their own churches. And minutemen. To fight Crony Sigma Six with Republican Sigma Six.

Obama does not believe there is a heaven to serve in. He believes in YOLO -- you only live once. He believes it is better to concentrate on ruling on earth. Without a KEY, Obama's policies would seem to be very erratic -- particularly in how he navigates among Jews, Shia, Shiites, and various of their sects.

So, what is THE KEY? I had not thought much of rumors about Obama's desire to be Secretary General at the United Nations. That seemed preposterous. NO LONGER! Were Elizabeth Warren to acquire influence to nominate Obama, and were Obama to have accumulated enough chits among contending nations, that would be THE KEY to the ring that rules all: the key to explaining some of Obama's actions that otherwise make little sense and that seem clearly not to be in the interest of the U.S.

Whatever New World Order that Obama may wish to steer us towards, it clearly would be a world in which middle class influence in representative republics would be a charade. What Obama and his supporters have in mind is to accelerate the use of the U.S. as a springboard from which to impose worldwide rule under a two class system. In such a system, the rulers and satraps would have great corporatist power to reward loyal cronies and homies and to punish all who failed to bow obsequiously enough. Is the world ready for Agenda 21 with a Banana Twist?

I came across some interesting quotes from an article of June 29, 2011, by James Lewis, on American Thinker, entitled: Is Obama Making His Next Career Move?:

A reasonable guess is that Obama wants to be UN Secretary General. To do that he needs two things: Radical Muslim support, and the international left, especially European socialists. [Bold added.]
Targeting Israel and American capitalism is the way to their hearts. It's what they all want, because Israel and America are the biggest examples of successful free nation-states today. The left want to abolish the nation-state in favor of an international imperium to be run by -- the left!
....
Ordinary liberals may be suckered about Islam, but the radical left isn't. They know they are making a pact with the Devil. So do the radical Muslims. Both sides believe they will end up trying to destroy each other in the end. But they have a bigger common enemy: Us.
....
It's just bizarre to think that the feminist left really wants all the women in the world to wear black tents, and to be beaten (or even killed) at home for disobeying the men of the family in accordance with Shar'iah law. The actions of the left only make sense if they believe they will gain from driving a radical Muslim wedge into Western nations. Radical leftists have said exactly that.

That's why Europe now has 53 million Muslims, concentrated in capital cities like London, Paris, and Berlin. That's why Obama and the Democrats are deliberately failing to protect our borders, and suing Arizona for trying to enforce what is already federal law. To normal people that all seems self-destructive, but there's a method to their madness.
Fundamentally, Islam and the left are ideologically incompatible. The fact that they are colluding against Israel and America means that they see a short-term advantage against their inevitable long-term struggle to the death.
....
Together, Muslims and the European left control the United Nations General
Assembly. That is why the genocidal Sudan is on the UN Human Rights Commission, a grotesque reward for a mass-murdering regime. Muslim fascists and the radical left both believe in a world imperium. The United Nations is the logical vehicle for that. Radical Muslims practice a world imperialistic cult belief. So does the left.

This is why Obama says he will stand with Islam. This is why Obama is doing everything possible to bankrupt America and to leave our nation without the means to defend itself as a republic. This is why he should be impeached! REGARDLESS of whether he can be removed. He at least needs to be made into damaged goods so his way will not be cleared to a pulpit at the UN to give voice to an unholy alliance that would be bent to the Devil's penultimate solution: the destruction of America.

I doubt young, single ladies, femimen, metrosexuals and kiddie profs have the least clue or insight about where they are allowing the republic to be taken, and where, if bent under the rule of Warren and Obama, it will take their children. Corrupt cronies and useful idiots are selling our future out for nothing but a mess of pottage and an ocean of tears. Some very twisted, sick and evil bastids salivate at the thought of sadistic whipping and rapine of a masochistic world. Meanwhile, our femi-youth are like different shades of a toddler who is drawn to the predator in the shiny car who is waving a poisonous lolly pop.

God is God. We are not. We may indirectly appreciate, but not directly fathom, the mind of God. As to God, we may indulge various conceptualizations. Nothing precludes us from conceptualizing God, not as a caring Reconciler, but as a monstrous psychopath who has commissioned psychopathic humans as helpmates for imposing systems of psychopathy.

Indeed, if one is as psychopathic and murderous as a Moo Ham Head, then one may facilitate the expression of psychpathic impulses by using fear and Stockholm Syndrome to induce rabid followers who give up the dignity of independent minds. Eventually, such mind slaves may come to believe they gave up their minds willingly.

If God relevantly relates to us and cares about us, then our actions may eventually take on temporal, self-fulfilling effects. In relatively short terms, psychopaths may induce beliefs favorable to rampant psychopathy. However, no short term system can reasonably be considered to be a long term description or limitiation of the eternal God.

For an eternal Godhead that reconciles all of beingness, a caring aspect is called for. A Guide for each pilgrim's progress. Not the aspect of an eternal monster who punishes just for monstrosity's sake, or at the whim of a pretended mouthpiece.

We may do better to apprehend that we do not directly fathom the mind of God. We only give expression to our intuitive and tinkered conceptualizations concerning God. For that, we each have participatory will. Nothing rational entitles any demented follower of Mohammad to dictate to deprive any human being of his inherent dignity to try in his own way to intuit what God means for him.

But for demented interference against them, I think most people would eventually find their way, in some form, to relate to a higher principle or conceptualization of moral reconciliation. What sponsors that process of reconciliation, whatever its nature or character, can be considered to be "God." As a guide, we have the wisdom, warts and all, that is set forth in the history, parables, poetry, and metaphors of the Bible.

On the other hand, if you read the Koran, you will find little of worthwhile history or literature. Instead, you will mostly find repetitive, hateful, psychopathic ravings of a very abusive and demented mad man. Much as if Obama had believed himself commissioned to write, by hiimself, the Constitution for all people.

Although the specific approved forms of exploitation are different, the general nature is similar. The Iranian establishment indoctrinated parents to sacrifice their children as mine clearers. American establishmentarians are indoctrinating their population to force equalities among natural unequalities by forcing men who volunteer to fight to do so alongside femimen and women.

Establishmentarians of both the East and the West tend to promote those ideas and ideals concerning equality, empathy and Godliness that support their own twisted purposes.

Global warming, equality, fairness and entitlement. Those are memes that are indoctrinated into useful idiots by toothy carnivores. Every thinking person has noticed how a confluence of establishmentarian interests has united both Rinos and Dinos to force states not to enforce the border. There is no reason for thinking people to believe establishmentarians would not likewise align in support of other crony outrages against a representative republic.

The whiff of easy prey pulls every predator together, so that premeditation is hardly necessary. The deliberative nature of predators tends to come after they have noticed their common interests. That is when opportunists conspire after one another's interests. Adding insult to injury, that is when they seek to indoctrinate their prey to a lie: that it is for their preys' own best interests for them to school together -- all the better to be harvested! Our colleges have been made into farms for seeding and nurturing crops of delicious idiots.

It may be conceptualized that the Godhead is one, yet of a trinitarian aspect. The Source-Essence-Purposer-Reconciler abides as a trinitarian flux that expresses Substance, Information and Consciousness. Under such a conceptualization, the sponsor of Substance may be conceptualized as the creating Father. In aspect of Information, the sponsor may be conceptualized as the accompanying Holy Ghost. In aspect of the Particular Exemplar of Consciousness, the sponsor may be conceptualized as the guiding Jesus.

That our existentiality entails a trinitarian flux of Substance, Information and Consciousness seems self evident. Substance disperses, Information collects, and Consciousness (identities and memories) changes. The world of present manifestation in Substance is the world that is presented and created by the Godhead. Jesus' kingdom would not be of this world of present manifestation. Jesus' kingdom would be of the always receding, guiding potentiality of substance and information in Consciousness. In Jesus' kingdom, the battles are among empathies and ideas. Meanwhile, in the kingdom of manifested substance, there is no avoiding that the battles over ideas are represented in flesh and blood.

Re: " I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father but through Me."

Of "common sense," much depends on how one approaches the conundrum that our existence is both scientifically quantitative and morally qualitative. Take the conscous aspect of man. Take Jesus as the aspect of conscious judgment of the Godhead. Under such a conceptualization, it would be consistent (common sense) that the consciousness of no man approaches the Godhead except through Jesus.

REASONING AND MODELING: I am not able to "make sense" of anything without a model. A conceptualization. A good faith conceptualization would be one that TRIES to avail sense that is consistent, coherent, and complete. Even though no complete or perfect explanation is available to mortals.

SIN: To be in a state of sin may be conceptualized as signifying a state of cosmological evolution. Moral Evolution. Conceptually, suffering and pleasuring may be less to atone for sin or to reward joy than to facilitate reconciliation to moral purposefulness. To be in a state of sin would be a state such that the Godhead (Changeless-Changer) is attuned and available to guide our communications to pursue meaningful dignity.

SALVATION: Regarding heaven or hell, the issue of concern need not be how a body saves into spirit, but how a spirit pursues morally purposeful expression in a body.

POTENTIALITY: Consider Jesus. Consider also Shakespeare, Newton, Franklin, Jefferson, Mozart, Einstein, Turing. Is it not ASTONISHING what can be expressed from the digital potential of the mind of the Godhead? But for Jesus, what would have come of moral philosophy throughout the world?

PURPOSE: Investigate how intelligent and powerful each individual can be guided to become, while still preserving a civilization that can trust enough to avail decent freedom and dignity without annihilating itself.

JESUS: The Consciousness as we relate to it that has special moral insight above all others into both the Substance and the Information would be the "only begotten Son" -- the apex for seeking to understand the Changeless-Changer.

WHY DID JESUS SUFFER / EXEMPLAR: The way of evolution that is guided by the Godhead entails pleasure and pain. The Exemplar needed to exemplify both. To become an exemplar for humanity, He needed to experience the heights of joy and the depths of pain. This is less because men and mortals are purely evil than because they are incomplete, imperfect, and in need of guidance in how to face all potentials to our limits. It is not inconsistent to believe that a perfect exemplar, to best guide (save) mankind along a morally purposeful path, would need to experience suffering.

I don't claim authority over truth. I only posit a conceptualization of truth that seems to avail sense for independent-minded republicans. I don't believe the Truth has revealed entire Truth to humanity because I do not believe mortals have capacity to comprehend entire Truth. If you are claiming some kind of mantle of truth under which to judge me or anyone else, I simply think you are mistaken.

If you are asserting some kind of more specific relevance, rather than simply botting mantras, tell me what is wrong with championing the dignity of each individual to relate to the Godhead? Isn't Jesus the mediating presence, who guides each individual with regard to Jesus' eventual and ultimate judgment of each person and each act, as opposed to any merely mortal interloper? Are you advocating for some kind of priestlike theocracy, party collectivism or crony elitism, to be superior to each individual's good faith efforts to relate to the Godhead? Or are you just advocating (reasoning) for a mantra-like talisman, with no other specific relevance?

Frankly, I find it laughable that you try to use a kind of reason to appeal to my reason to try to convince me not to reason! You see, I believe God gave us brains to use, to appreciate His miracles. You deny the god given right of each disciple of the Godhead to seek to intuit his way to meaningfulness as best he can, keeping always attuned as best he can to the guidance from the Godhead that unfolds all around him. IOW, you, like Muslims, deny the role of the participatory spirit and will of the individual. You replace that by scripture, subject to a proviso -- scripture as you interpret it. As if you were the latest incarnation of an authoritative mouthpiece for God. I don't buy it.

I'll keep myself attuned to the one Godhead of the Cosmos, as best I am able. For that, I read the Bible, but much, much more. To me, this is what respect for the freedom and spiritual dignity of each individual is all about. To deny that, IMO, is to deny the American Ideal. It is to promote self-subjugation to self-elected elites. There are enough banana republics like that already. We don't need to help Obama impose one more, to make hell on earth. If you like your denial of a role for reason, you can keep your denial of a role for reason. Just don't join up to try to force it on me. Buck Farack.

Easy. The Godhead. Not you. Your "reasoning" sounds akin to Islamic mushmindedness about "there are no partners." Yes, the Godhead is one. Yet, it gives expression in three fundamental aspects. Those aspects are as obvious as everday experience, unless one were to deny that reality gives expression to Substance, Information and Consciousness. It is not for the "logic" of mortals to tell God that the Godhead cannot abide in three fundamental aspects. Especially, when the three aspects are so obvious to our direct experience.

In every institution, America's leaders are being replaced with socialistic femimen and metrosexual socialists. Justices, Generals, Department Heads, Talking Heads, Profs, Pastors. Mostly all are worthless to the sustenance of a representative republic. Almost the only Leader who remains for Americans is the Spirit of the American Ideal, exemplified in the Second Amendment.

Obama favors socialistic colonization in order to make most of the world submit to becoming the class of the ruled, under the rule of the rulers. Under his subjugation, he will grant peace. Obama favors every kind of elitist-ruled collectivization over the American Ideal of individual freedom of expression and enterprise. Thus, Obama favors jihadist colonization over the defense of America.

In Obama's mind, it is shameful to oppose his program for imposing rule over those who are decent and independent by those who pay oz monkeys to destroy them. Obama "shames" us for opposing perverts who suck up tax money to groom our school children. Obama "shames" us for opposing the "reeducation" of children to the "sciences" of global warming, debt monetization, politically-correct speech, and tolerance for the collectivist destruction of freedom of thought. Obama "shames" us for opposing ghetto entitlement-mindedness and jihadi dhimification. Obama-the-Colonizer hates all those who would prefer to colonize on behalf of individual freedom.

It sounds like you're picking and choosing, to assert Paul's authority over James and Simon. It may be interesting to consult what Jesus is represented to have said, directly. You seem to be saying the Godhead closes off from the child who prays to God, who may never have heard the name Jesus (or is it Yeshua? After all, what's in a name?), unless the child completes his prayer with a talisman ("in Jesus' name"). I do not believe in talismen or magical prayer beads.

I believe Jesus has always existed, regardless of your name for Him. I think the child who prays in good faith is heard, because the prayer would not be heard unless it were in good faith. I think God knows good faith when He hears it. I leave the judgment of that to Him -- not you. And when He hears it, I thing that is the Jesus-aspect of the Godhead. But continue. I'm sure you will, with enough theosophizing, hit on the magical and complete formulization, to prove all others to be heresies. For that quest, here's a list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L....

@Homeschool,

Thx for the kind words. I do not quest to comprehend complete perfection, but only the explanation that I, myself, can honestly believe is the best one for relating the different roles for measurable science and immeasurable spirituality. I do not for a second believe that God wishes for me to be intellectually dishonest just to appease a regime. Moreover, I believe God wants each of us to mature in our beliefs and orientations, to improve upon the way we apply them to unfolding challenges. For this quest, unfolding concepts of science are relevant, but not sufficient. Nor can rote repetition of theocratic formulizations keep up with emerging concepts. After all, what can reasonably be said of the soul of an Artificial Intelligence? Or of unfolding discoveries concerning the intelligence of animals? Or of the capacity for digitized algorithms to correlatively represent almost everything? If one is content to live in the past, one may be satisfied with long-repeated rote mantras as "answers" for keeping one in the past.

However, if one seeks a mature theosophy, one must not fear trying to reconcile unfolding concepts concerning the measurable cosmos with concepts of moral assimilation. To restrict oneself to the Bible is to attempt moral reconciliation to the sciences of the present while wearing the rote blinders of the past. One must read from both books: The book of the Bible and the book of the Cosmos. Otherwise, everyone of the ruled class would surrender his or her independent moral responsibility to the
bafflegab of a pretended elite. Such surrender may be appealing to one who otherwise may feel overwhelmed with cognitive dissonance. So far, I do not feel that way.

It seems to me that every wannabe ruling elitist tries to nurture a flock to espouse one revealed Truth that is sufficient for every specific purpose. Notice how Obama gets the red eye when his edict is not accepted. At some point, some among the flock will tend to notice that they likely are as good, smart, educated and competent to pray for and
to seek and receive guidance from God as is the busybody flock master.

Thinkers are exploring some strange relationships. For example, there is the observer effect (measurement problem). If there is a two-way relationship between conscious apprehension and manifestation, what may be the character of this effect? There may be conundrums concerning how appearances of chronologies are preserved or telescoped for different perspectives operating from differing contexts. Are measurements within the cosmos reconciled and renormalized, such that the space-scape appears to be of much the same density, regardless of the position of any observer? Conceptually, how is this seemingly automatic and responsive renormalization possible? What is the character of conscious identity?

I wonder to what extent consensus among theoretical physicists regarding some of their grander and more encompassing postulations is preserved more by intimidation than by logic and measurement. Much as I wonder to what extent consensus among congregants tends to be preserved more by authoritarian intimidation than by honest or examined belief. I suspect some of the greatest thinkers did not happen upon all important insights because of any inevitable, algorithmic unfolding in the brain. I suspect some of those insights suddenly appeared in their minds, wholly shaped and almost out of nowhere. Without their necessarily having been thinking upon them, but simply recognizing an idea that suddenly took up residence within them. As if received as a gift from God. Now, imagine if they had been repressed because of political correctness among politicians, priests and scientists.

Is Queen Noor still a US citizen? It appears she does not pay US taxes, although she may not have formally renounced. ElizabethTaylor renounced twice, but regaining citizenship was not difficult. As to Churchill, the law at his time did not make him a citizen (although he was made an honorary citizen).

Conservatives know in their bones that Obama is not a nice guy and that he has given us every reason to fear. Cruz knows it, too. Cruz also knows that the excess of domestic power that is centrally consolidated in the District of Corruption, unless divested, will continue to attract the excess of corrupt money. For the cause of corruption, central power begets the most bang for the buck. It attracts gangbanging buzzards like dead meat attracts bugs. If I were a buzzard or a maggot, I would fear Cruz, too.

I wonder what diversionary stunts and outrages will be pulled by the Economically Progressve Star Chamber when the people begin mooing in earnest, rising towards a flux of worldwide stampedes?

Businesses need to produce stuff that people want that they can afford to buy. Today, the only way many businesses can produce and consumers can buy is with gov assistance. So much so that gov can't fund the assistance with tax revenues without printing ever more fiat money. As our society becomes less competitive, there is no way our gov can tax its way out of debt that accelerates ever faster and out of control. So long as the rest of the world does not clearly see this or continues to believe the dollar is the last curency standing, this whackiness can float on cheap goods produced for our consumption abroad.

At some point, the search for a more stable economic base will stress nations and their oligarchic rulers into out of control wars. It may come to pass that the only way our progeny can hope to promote some few survivors to begin anew is to throw off the dead weight of all who have put corrupt debt on them. That's when the next round of socialistic-fascists may begin to unite behind propagandists against "useless eaters." That's when many pc lofos will be turned like cattle to a kind-less and un-gentle form of new-pc "liberalism." We elect Cruz and take our medicine now, or, by dithering, we wait to elect the devil as the last available repository of trust for godlessly corrupt and untrustworthy people.

Bad Man's Blunder: This here toleration and promotion of godless, conscience-less, race-baiting, lying, dividing, lawless and incompetent addicts, aliens, bureaucrats and commies has just naturally got to stop!

From AT: Re: all modern-day systems -- whether financial, infrastructural or educational -- are vulnerable when moral restraint is gone. The more complex and interconnected our systems become, the greater the risks when they fail.

It is reasonable to derive a civilizing moral code under a conceptualization of a higher Principle or Spiritual Reconciler. But that is only the beginning. Without inculcation, such as in respect of a Moses or Jesus, people tend to follow those who facilitate their basest and most immediate desires. Like the "perfect (pedophile) messenger" so revered by musloids.

Under the influence of moralists like muslims, commies, hackers and corporatists, Lofos are easily bribed. Corrupti are conspiratorily incentived. When the majority of an electoral demographic comes to consist of ignoranti and corrupti, those who advocate for codes that can sustain decent social values are quickly swept aside. At that point, the law becomes a handmaiden to the biggest pretenders and swindlers and their easily bribed and useful idiots. A population that loses its compass in respect of an assimilating moral principler becomes carrion to buzzards. Ted Cruz is right. Evil has set the world on fire.
