This is a brief exchange in regard to this recent blog: http://jrfibonacci.wordpress.com/2014/08/19/the-myth-of-declining-government-honesty/
Daniel Fritschler So they can’t see how other government’s operate and how even the history books speak of dishonesty and corruption when it comes to the American government. Maybe they do see it but are just afraid to acknowledge it…blind because of fear and not naivety? Maybe?
Daniel Fritschler I think in today’s day and age of technology either you have to be avoiding the truth of how systems or societies work or you are just cowered in a corner because of fear. Perhaps the third group just isn’t intelligent enough to put the puzzle together and view the big picture but I would bet most are.
Daniel Fritschler I mean you can’t tell me people conform because of their peers or pressure from others after high school(or just an imaginary or perceived threat) but they can operate from the real threat or the fear of knowing what the government is capable of. So the fear shifts from other people as in friends, acquaintances and/or family to an actual threat or the corruption of the imperialistic empire.

The idea that the US government was previously more honest than lately has been a popular idea… for centuries. It is based of course on a particular perception about past honesty.
Those who independently study the nature of government may encounter some simple facts about all governments. (Note that in order to distract the masses from independent research, governments often make it a high priority to program the masses with pro-government propaganda through indoctrination systems of schools which may be government-regulated, or even government-funded or, in the most extreme cases, even operated by governments.)
The mainstream media is similar (though in the US, the media is not as socialized as the primary school system). If you care to research the history of US government pro-war propaganda, two good sources are War is a Racket by USMC Major General Smedley Butler (1935)
Throughout the years various men of military service have spoken up and….
There is also this book from 1928 in which the nephew of Sigmund Freud (who was also the founder of the PR industry) details how he invented inflammatory anti-German propaganda in order to incite antagonism in the US public so as to reduce the resistance to the first US invasion of Europe (what later became known as “World War One”)
S.O. asked: “how come?”
The Prophet Noah said that unless the Hebrew tribes imposed a government court system on all of humanity, then a new apocalypse would destroy humanity. These court systems extorted wealth from their subjects and dictated the form of payment to be used to pay the invented debts that the government extortion rackets claimed from the masses.
However, it was not just guile and trickery that made this system so effective, but brutality and intimidation. The massacring of the Midianites ordered by Moses was one instance of slaughter that spread terror (and compliance) throughout the growing zionist empire. The Holy Roman Inquisition (with it’s tortures and crusades) is a branch of the same system of organized coercion. All governments have this same basic foundation.
That author’s take is the same kind of thing to me. If this was a poker game, this was not a one-round game. This was, to me, an experiment by the Feds in regard to what reaction they could produce. I would not be surprised if almost all of the protesters have been identified and received increased monitoring (and even targeting).
The reality is that challenging armed government agents can go very poorly for the challengers. That point seems to be completely ignored in the comments of the story that you sent me. I am sure that he has knowledge of protests getting demolished in places like Ohio (in 1970 when 4 college students were shot by the US National Guard), the Ukraine, Africa, Cambodia, Israel, Arabia, or Teinanmen Square (and note that the photographed incident below actually was notable because it was so unusual that the civilian was not simply killed).
The central point of George Orwell in the book 1984, which so many seem to miss, is that governments may occasionally set up events to draw out “protestors” to identify themselves to the government. Many “anti-government” authors are funded by governments (even if the actual source of the funding is hidden from the author). Some anti-government groups are started by the government (or inflitrated and then co-opted).
Anyway, here is what he said to glorify the actions of the protestors (and the text in bold is his emphasis, not mine):
BLM showed up with “lawful orders” backed up by two different (federal) courts. But the People did not perceive those order as being morally justified. Therefore, they chose not to recognize those orders as being lawful. As was the case at Bundy Ranch, Americans can and do think for themselves in such scenarios, and at any moment, they may decide that YOUR actions as a federal agent are grossly unlawful, immoral or unconstitutional. If enough people arrive at the same conclusion, you will sooner or later find yourself surrounded and possibly arrested by the People at gunpoint.
This concept does not compute with many federal agents because they were not taught the real roots of power in a free society. They are taught that a law written on a piece of paper is an absolute, irrefutable power which can never be questioned by lowly “civilians.” In reality, a law is nothing more than mutual consent of the governed. That consent, it turns out, can be invoked at any time if those who apply the law do so in a way that is egregious or unreasonable. All government power comes from the People, after all, and can therefore be revoked by the People if government becomes abusive or overreaching in its exercising of that power.
Laws mean nothing, after all, if they are not based on a sense of justice which can be recognized by the Common Man (or woman).
Keep in mind that some times when a group assembles to protest the actions of the US as unlawful or unjustified, the US (for instance) does not stop. Did the US stop occupying Germany or Japan because of protests? No: 70 years later, troops are still there.
Did the US continue to the invasion of Vietnam even though some Vietnamese shot back at them? Yes, for many years.
What about Iraq? Did people really believe “we will pull out the troops as soon as I am elected” when some politician said that? Some people may be very naive. Some of the most naive may be some of the most vocal.
Anyway, with new technologies like social media, information (and photos or videos) CAN travel quickly. Those who USE that mechanism or at least RESPECT that mechanism may have a reduced reactivity to “social media” hysterias started by others.

That systematic redistribution of resources is the primary purpose of governments. Ideals of “fairness” and “justice” shift over time to match with government programming: “who deserves the biggest disability subsidy? Who deserves the biggest reparation for racial discrimination: freed slaves or colonized natives?” These ideals shift over time, usually gradually, to justify the latest revenue programs, such as a $1,000 minimum fine for filing taxes late or a $500 minimum fine for driving a car with a cracked windshield or a $200/month fee for mandatory national health insurance.

Mafia Governments and Government Mafias
I will keep this post rather concise, but I’ll add a few supporting links/excerpts at the bottom. Note that this presentation will contrast sharply from whatever you may have been told in public school or through the mainstream media. If you have no skepticism about those institutions and their propaganda, this is probably not the right blog for you to read at this time.
Organized coercion rules the world, literally setting the standards or rules of human societies. Organized coercion includes the public extortion rackets of taxation and of government confiscation as well as the private extortion rackets of involuntary “protection insurance” and terrorizing people with stories of hell to get them to tithe every week and to buy indulgences for their shames and guilty pleasures, or the intimidating methods (approaching a mugging) that may be used by some drug dealers to produce “transactions.”
Governments are just stable, public forms of organized coercion. They are the “cover” for the real game (and the protectors/mercenaries working for the big players).
The big players (Rothschild, DeBeers, Rabin, Lansky, Kissinger, Rockefeller, Morgan, etc) create legal systems (new branches of the tree) to monopolize their pre-existing organized extortion operations (the trunk). They have the resources to impose systems like Apartheid as well as to “work” any legal system with million-dollar attorneys and million-dollar political donations (AKA “foreign aid”), so they can arrange for folks like Oliver North to be pardoned even after conviction for treason or murder or whatever. Or, they can remove disloyal bureaucrats by bullet or media scandal (as in the case of Mark Foley or Richard Nixon).
Note that Nixon was taken out of office not because of some action of his own, but perhaps simply because of a lack of loyalty. When there is a “management issue,” then the standard practices of “democracy” (illegal campaign tactics) can be publicized and the public goes in to an uproar about the “new transgression.” What is new about it? It is newly publicized, that’s all. These folks were crooks from the beginning- even if the public figureheads (the candidates) may sincerely be oblivious to all of that.
Of course, those publicity controversies about Watergate and Monica Lewinsky‘s Felatio-Gate and so on are just media shows though to distract from the basics. The basics are that the big players will never be prosecuted or even charged because they have too many connections within the DOJ and the CIA and the Mossad and the White House and the Vatican and so on. That means that someone like Oliver North, as well-connected as he was to Reagan, was a much smaller player than someone like Reagan himself- to the extent that Reagan even knew who he was working for.
Amongst their local regulatory duties, governments dictate (with the backing of their organized coercion systems of armies, court deputies, and secret service assassins) what form of payment will be accepted as money, creating a huge temporary bubble in demand for that form of “money” (such as gold- see http://one-evil.org/content/symbols_gold.html). Whether that bubble lasts a decade or a millenium, it is still a manipulated artificial bubble from the start. However, again governments are not the core of global imperialism and extortion, but branches of a much larger tree which are all connected at their trunk by the general pattern of organized extortion.
From the link above:
“what cannot be argued is that gold as lawful
money is written in the strictest of law possible within the Bible and
other texts as an abomination, as a false idol – yet is totally supported
and promoted by people who claim to follow its teachings.”
“Despite the fact that the Parasite Banker/Merchant families have used the “lawful money” trick of gold repeatedly and despite the fact of the
overwhelming evidence that such acceptance only strengthens their control on commerce, the truth movement of today is completely and utterly entranced, ignorant and spellbound as it was every other time since the days of the [early] Roman Empire and Julius Caesar.”
“The largest single holder of ingot/bullion gold of any organization for the past 1,000 years is and has always been the Roman Cult controlling the Catholic Church. The Roman Catholic Church controls approximately 60,350 metric tonnes of gold, twice the size of the total official gold reserves around the world or approximately 30.2% of all the gold ever mined/produced. At current prices, it puts the asset value of the greatest treasure in human history at over US $1,245 Billion.”
< That is down dramatically since 1945, and less than half of the
concentration of gold owned by the Vatican in the 15th century, when the author calculates they had their peak percentage of ownership of all of the gold that had been mined in the world as of that time, about 62%. >
“This is the treasure that once again will be used to re-gain control of
the world under the “guise” of saving the world through “lawful money” in
2011/2012 unless good people can be woken up from the spell of the bankers and their gold.”
