THE GOVERNING OF AMERICANS, AS SEEN BY ORWELL
(I shall return to nice and beautiful postings next time. But “nice and beautiful” doesn’t mean Ignorant.)
” It is impossible to see reality except by looking through the eyes of the Party.” (George Orwell, warning us.)
The governing of America in these past few decades is thus: American citizens vote for representatives who will represent them to make beneficial laws, which then a Dictator (persons or things) will disregard and present to those representatives another set of laws, rules, ordinances, regulations, etc., for which— if the representatives agree to do this for the Dictator — they will get richly rewarded.
Dictator proposes the Law for Americans, and then enforces that Law onto his subjects.
This is not only Central Planning, it is ruthless Central Planning.
An example of this Dictatorial Central Planning, love it or die, is (The Fast Track Trade Bill deal. Just remember: T I S A. and it’s associated with the Trans-Pacific trade deal. )
I follow a lot of the news aggregate sites, mostly just to glance at the headlines so I can see what issues people are talking about today. No great interest in things that I can’t control.
But I’ve noticed a lot of headlines recently about the new trade bill that is being forced onto us. We’re supposed to say, “Oh, we love it.” Oh, this will be good for our country.” “Oh, free, open, indiscriminate trade deals are good for our own workers.” Etc.
(Attitudes disseminated through the Dictator’s media personnel. An attempt at public mind manipulation.)
Here is the Trade Bill.
Well, I don’t mean “here.” I mean it got put into the basement of the Capitol building . . .
And no elected legislators can see it!!!! . . . unless they are escorted by guardians of the Dictator, and they have to leave behind all recording devices, cell phones, camera, recorders, paper, notepads, and pens. . . and check in alone, without their usually ever-present aides and assistants or secretaries.
Alone. Escorted. Without any memory aids.
Then in the presence of the guardians, they may read some pages of the Bill, a page or two at a time, as they request.
But no notes or memory devices.
This is a big Bill with many pages.
Some lawmakers were heard protesting this treatment.
Oh, yes, and no one from the press and no private citizen is allowed to read any of it. Not even without our memory aids.
“The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Pacific Rim trade deal that Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) would fast-track is currently being kept in secret in the basement of the U.S. Capitol and press and the public are not allowed to read it.”
But it gets worse:
This from Forbes:
“Under the draft provisions of the latest trade deal to be leaked by Wikileaks, countries could be barred from trying to control where their citizens’ personal data is held or whether it’s accessible from outside the country.
“Wikileaks has released 17 documents relating to the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA), currently under negotiation between the US, the European Union and 23 other nations. These negotiating texts are supposed to remain secret for five years after TISA is finalized and brought into force.”
That is, we’re sharing our private data with the European Union, thusly: “EU privacy regulations currently require companies to store EU citizens’ personal data locally, to make sure they comply with the region’s strict legal requirements for data processing.”
How destructive is this trade bill to Americans? How can we know? Even our elected officials are not allowed to discuss it. Yet. Maybe if they follow the Constitution in defiance of our Rulers they will.
But so far, we are being governed, not by the people whom we’ve elected, Legislative and Executive branches, but by . . . (?)
I hate these things. I fear them. They are all over our computers, inside our cell phones, our tablets and laptops. I hate them because they are opposed to the 3300 year old teachings which I adhere to, and these bots search them out. And though I am the mildest and least harmful, least active of citizens, I appear to them (falsely) as an enemy.
So I will not very often report on what others are telling us about current events anymore, because these are the kinds of dismaying and rather frightening things I’m reading about. You can read those things if you’re interested, but I will revert back to my training in history and find relevant historical periods which – since we don’t seem to remember them — we are doomed to repeat them.
Remember “Caligula” means Little Boots. (“Caliga” – the heavy, hob-nailed boots or sandals worn by Roman) And remember George Orwell warned us that “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.” All his relevant quotations are here: Spend a little time with him.
If you’ve read this far, you can probably endure this photo and caption:
Note that Christianity is that “old civilization” founded on Love and Justice.
“Central Planning: love it or die.”
How did American citizens become American subjects?
