The Modern War on Words

The War on Words is all about semantics and how good words can be twisted until people perceive them as evil and how bad words, many with very evil, harmful and even dangerous connotations, can be used to justify abhorrent behavior under the guise of doing good.

The government has grown so far beyond its original intent that we the people should all be outraged, a bit frightened and figuratively speaking at least, up in arms about the goings on in our Constitutional Republic.

These Independent but united States of America were founded on the principles of a Constitutional Republic. Any “democratic” governments were designed to be functional solely on the local level as that was the only way to insure it would remain in check.

They were founded together as a nation of laws but today, laws are so convoluted and enforced arbitrarily that it takes a team of attorneys to be able to interpret the law … in any fashion that they see fit for their particular case.

Creeping Incrementalism is On The Run

Incrementalism is not by any means a new concept, however, when added to the work of Edward L. Bernays, it should be perhaps more troubling these days. Add in the work of Dr. Alfred W. McCoy, (“Policing America’s Empire” is the book being referred to in this particular case) and we can clearly see that there is a concerted effort to control we the people and never had any intention to serve them.

Author and Historian James Scott argues that “The prime aim of the Modern State is to establish metrics for rendering a social hieroglyph into a legible and administratively more convenient format.” Combine all of this together and it may even start to look like we the people have been played like a cheap fiddle.

Granted, far too many people remain far too ignorant of history, and that portion of this article may be a bit boring to some, but like history itself, this will eventually lead us to where we are today and give us at least a hint of that which is yet to come. From a historical standing, we are most definitely in a very bad position and if we do not wake up to reality today, it may very well may be too late for all of us.

Are Economic Systems Necessary

Well of course they are right? I mean, like how else could we all know who was rich and who we are supposed to hate right? Economics are certainly important to a degree and this holds especially true in a global market with global trade. What is not so certain is whether or not this is an absolute necessity down at the individual level. 

Economic principles are certainly necessary but that is not necessarily to say that economics themselves are an absolute requirement for the survival of society. How do I differentiate between the need for economic principles while at the same time saying that actual economics should not be as prevalent as they are? Again, it breaks down to varying degrees depending on what part of society people live in.

Undocumented George also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table."
