The Flimsy Control System
To govern is to rule and to do that one must be on top of the object/subject.
There are two ways to govern:
- Force – physical
- Deception -mind
Historically the first method failed because it is literally ‘bloody‘ cumbersome to the governor whilst it is revolting to the governed, which offered no peace to the governor ending up spending more time suppressing the resistance than governing the subjects.
The second method is more effective, quite stable and easier to manage. Btw this’ ongoing as you’re reading. The governor forms a team and aptly called it govern-ment (Latin for mind [mens, mentis]), govern-the-mind.
The modern day govern-ment is highly organized and structured for a systemic control and it seems to work fairly well albeit a few resistance here and there by colorful boat-rockers.
The main device to deal with disorder and resistance is the inglorious Law. The Law is tightly enforced and policed, and law-breakers will be dealt-with by the Legal and Justice system
Armed with the legal-machinery, the governor can now govern and loot the subjects (peacefully).
The bigger the subjects the more tedious it gets. Its difficult to police every individual subject, but the governor accepted that and its ready to lose to some (clever) sneakers, but try catch them whenever he can.
In actuality the current form of control is flimsy because it is basically docu-control (data documented) method.
- Birth Certificates
- Identity Cards
- Permits and Titles
- Paper Money
…and so on.
- Document (both paper and digital) can be easily duplicated and/or falsified completely as signed and sealed.
- Corruption – An oversight perhaps by the
governor is the whole control system he created to tame the subjects has
turned them into corrupt monsters who have lost their minds and
creating havoc. Even George Orwell didn’t see it then in 1984
How do you control their minds when they’ve lost it?
- The biggest flaw in the system is the Papier-mâché fiat money. Fake as it is, it must be spent for it to be of any purpose. Produce and consumption is the idea and this idea has led to the corruption of the mind.
To get the paper money one has to beg, borrow or steal…or “under-the-table”
Corruption is boring many big holes in the system, collapsing it and destroys the governor.
Corrupt politicians/businessmen/police/judges and just about everybody else.
The Orwellian governor must now come up with a meaner system if he is to remain relevant because the giant has awakened.
If properly and effectively understood, it will become the generally accepted notion that every thinking and reasonable person knows that using the coercive power of the government to compel anyone to sacrifice their life for others is as ethically not right as expecting others to be forced to sacrifice for them.
Then, as a matter of implied first principles, it will be impossible for some in the society to successfully coerce others through the tools of political power because it will be culturally counter to the general habit of the mind that liberty is too precious as both a moral and practical matter to be forgone for even the most attractive short-run gains from political paternalism and plunder.
It is neither an easy nor a quick task to change, in this sense, the climate of opinion about the appropriate moral order to sustain a free, prosperous, and ethical society. But we have no tools other than our minds and our reason and an understanding that it is in our own self-interest to try.
If enough of us take on this task, the growth in government can be both halted and reversed. The world of plunder can be replaced with a community of free people pursuing mutually beneficial peaceful production. The democratic dilemma of every growing government will be brought to an end. – AIER
