People-farming crony-elites have contrived by "immigration," "education," and infestation of all institutions of persuasion and force to twist our citizenry so that perhaps 65% are liberty-illiterate, individually incompetent, needful of safe spaces, and just want to trust elites to look out for them. By definition, such a society of industrial-strength stupidifieds cannot be fit for self governance -- except in burlesque or kabuki.
People-farmers have built a system in which most people are fit only to be farmed, and they will become violent if anyone tries to put space between them and their farmers. Given this situation, it is hardly irrational for the remainder of the populace to have the good sense to be "phobic" against bringing in more subhumans that want to be farmed as pleasure pigs and mad dog muslims. If the 35% that do not want to be subhumans do not soon unite, representative republicanism will perish from the earth.
I don't say to trust central gov to launder bribe money. My meaning is that gov that is not allowed to remain benighted COULD help. It could help if, instead of training people to be entitlement-minded, it required them to work for their welfare.
But I agree that most such work should not be done by central gov, because central gov is inherently too corrupt. It tends to float crap, not cream. If (that's a big if) most functions were taken away from central gov and rdistributed to the States, local people would have more local oversight. There would still be corruption, but not on the same scale. Good people may have a better chance to dampen it. Foreign corruption would be less likely to threaten the replacement of the republic as a whole.
IAE, jobs for maintenance of infrastructure would not be done by bureaucrats, but by competing private domestic American contractors. Should we rather have private-enterprising Saudis bidding to take over toll road monopolies? How is private development by foreign corporatists better than local letting of infrastructure jobs to domestic bidders? After all, every dime foreign rentiers make by selling back to our citizens our own national resources would be taken from them by abuse of trust and foreign intrigue.
I doubt we should believe abuse by disloyal international crony oligarchs is better than abuse by home-grown gov bureaucrats. What needs to be more appreciated is that there is a rentier-promoting kickback-alliance between mooching international corporatists and faithless treasonous home-grown cronies. Buying and selling pols as if they were commodities has become big international business.
Indeed, the pols that float to the top are now the ones that get the most dollars put in their shorts for doing the best strip teases. For goodness sakes, the nation elected Obama and may elect Hillary! The problem is not gov bad, corporation good. The problem is the agglomerating alliance between central gov and nation-less corporatists.
Just turning over everything to such corporatists would solve nothing. Indeed, oligarchic control over gov is what has put us where we are. Do you think there is magic in international corporatism more so than in local government? Or in distributing welfare without requiring work in trade?
