Junk Politics

This is a well-assembled excerpt from a speech given by John Pilger, Australian journalist and documentary film-maker:

It is more important than ever that the people wake up to the manipulation and deception created by the false left versus right political paradigm.

Obama's betrayal of those principles held dear by the ideological left is no different from Bush's betrayals of the principles of his conservative constituency while creating prescription drug bureaucracies and furthering federal control of education through No Child Left Behind. Clinton engaged in similar betrayal when he sold the American worker and the American manufacturing base down the river to Mexico when NAFTA was codified into law.

Americans must wake up and realize that the only paradigm that matters, the only dichotomy that has ever mattered when measuring an individual against his or her society is this: freedom versus servitude.

We need to stop blindly supporting the false two-party establishment. It has been used as a lever of control by the banking and corporate elite as a means of creating the illusion of choice while invariably steering us towards global serfdom.

"The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a formal and more permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and response in the absolute power of an Individual: and sooner or later, the chief of some prevailing faction more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purpose of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty." ~George Washington, 1796


  1. An awesome post. Your belief system runs parallel to mine.

    You have much to say that is true and reasoned. I hope you stay active and involved on your blog.

    Again great post. Keep up your valuable contribution to the liberty movement.

  2. Freedom versus servitude - stellar post

    The individual is the measure of value in a society. The welfare of the individual is welfare of the masses, One at a time.

    Free trade between nations is not a bad deal, if a nation is optimized for individuals to excel. Ideally people could move freely to which nation suited them best. No surprise the big government crowd seeks to tie people to the ground (like government controlled access to health care).

    Any ordinary jackass can be a despot and do evil to serfs. Let's be rid of The One we have.
