...not that our politicians and their media lapdogs would admit it. For most ideologies the difficulty for the politicians is in maintaining the balance of control over the people, while deluding them into thinking they (the people) are in control.
The electoral process in a democracy is more about personalities than it is about policy. This is especially so under Mixed Member Proportional Representation(MMP). The question that must be asked then is, what's the point of electing politicians based on their policies if they don't stand by them after they're elected? The obvious answer is, none. The electoral process is one thing, the political system quite another. Both are a farce and needs to change if we want any hope of living free. For the dictatorships though, there are no such pretences, but a high level of public fear through government intimidation must always be maintained if they wish to stay in power.
Most of the politicians would enter politics with good intentions and a desire to serve the people. But they soon find that there is a much bigger political game being played which they are absolutely powerless in. They are mere actors, being dictated to by their handlers. Some choose to compromise their integrity and stay on the payroll, happy to take the perks for as long as possible. Three terms in parliament and they can retire, living off the taxpayers for the rest of their days. Those that can’t lie to themselves and their constituents, choose to leave.
Controlling the people is done through various means, the most common being the psychological conditioning of the Hegelian Dialectic. Although it takes its name from the 19th century German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, the technique is as old as politics itself. It is essentially the deliberate creation of a problem, whereby they then offer the solution they wanted all along. A solution they knew the people would not have accepted had the initial problem not been created. It is thought control on a grand scale. “Political Science” is more about human psychology than anything else. They play on our emotions and tendency to trust those who speak with authority... even if what they say is nonsense. The public manipulation can only be done by distracting us with breads and circuses and managing the information flow that keeps the people ignorant of the bigger picture. The more ignorant we are, the more powerful they become. Their worst fear would be for the people to stop believing the government curriculum and mainstream media and start thinking for themselves.
The most famous example still being played out today, is 9/11. Prior to that fateful day, even the most apathetic American would've rioted over the Patriot Act and other restrictive laws initiated by the attack. After the false flag attack however, the public have accepted it, albeit reluctantly, as the new standard of normality, even so far as allowing Transport Security Administration staff, to legally molest their children in front of them and in full view of the public during airport screenings. The end justifies the means. The end is total control of the people while the means was killing three thousand of their own and invading foreign nations which have led to more senseless murders.
The Hegelian Dialectic approach is used at all level of government from local council town planning to changing public attitudes and behaviour through poor legislations such as the lowering of the drinking age to 18. It was and still is, overwhelmingly unpopular with the public yet the politicians persist with it. Why? The social impact of this legislation has been huge. It has opened the floodgates for irresponsible minors to experience alcohol and the nightlife then cruise the streets pretending to be adults. A study by the Alcohol Advisory Council (ALAC) in 2002 showed a correlation between the lower drinking age and the increase in traffic accidents and unsafe sex. The later would've no doubt led to more unwanted pregnancies, abortions and a surge in welfare dependant young parents. There wouldn't be a policeman, social worker, teacher or parent who would say this legislation has had a positive effect on society. Instead it has led to many lives lost or ruined, families destroyed, careers ended.
So why persist? The two most obvious benefits for the government has been more control of all the people through the irresponsible behaviour of the few. More public streets are deemed liquor ban areas. This of course applies to everybody, even the middle aged couple carrying a bottle of wine on their way to a restaurant are deemed too irresponsible with alcohol in certain areas. The other has been the increase of the hooligan antics of the alcohol fuelled boy racers. Most of these young people are too immature to appreciate or respect the fragility of their own lives, let alone the life, liberty and property of their fellow kiwis. Almost every fortnight we hear of drunk teenage drivers causing mayhem but still the drinking age stays at 18. Instead more restrictive by-laws and blanket legislations are introduced. But will they return the drinking age to 20? No...not until it's served its purpose of engineering our society into conforming to a new predetermined standard. The only beneficiary of these laws will be government and their corporate masters. This is the psychological conditioning of the Hegelian Dialectic in action.
This explains why any legislation which defies logic and reason, is pushed through, especially under urgency. Nothing in politics happens by accident and even accidents and disasters are used to further their agenda of control. As White House Chief of Staff, and proud Zionist, Rahm Emmanuel recently stated “Never let a serious crisis go to waste”. When the opportunity arises, they will jump to implement legislations that initially may seem admirable and necessary, but over time will evolve into something much more sinister.
Millions have dedicated their lives studying the various political systems and their many differences. Very few however, realise that the systems fall into one of two categories, either you self govern, or you are governed. Today every nation on earth have a political system where the government controls the people. The common denominator for all of them, is the global monetary system. It makes no difference whether it's a democracy, monarchy, autocracy, fascist, socialism, nazi or even tribalism. They are beholden to the wishes of their corporate masters of the privately owned banking system. As the fascist oligarch, Amschel Rothschild once said "Give me control of a nations money supply, and I care not who makes it’s laws". Here in lies part of the solution to regaining our freedom. Whatever medium of exchange is used for the ecomonmy, it must be in the control of the people. The supply of fiat currency, by private bankers, has allowed the reintroduction of the practice of usury (interest). This in turn has allowed them to strip the natural resources of nations and enslave its people for generations. This financial enslavement by usury, was once considered unethical and unlawful, it's now accepted as normal business practice.
It has taken centuries of negative social engineering to get us to this point of complete dependency on government and the debt based monetary system, and it will take at least two generations of positive social engineering to get us out. As no form of government above the people has proven to work for the people, the only option is to self govern. A true republican form of government, subservient to the people and restrained from making any law that undermines our ability to evolve, is our only hope.
Unfortunately the transition to freedom will be long and painful but it is a sacrifice that must be made if future generations are to live free.
