By observation, government is and always will be a magnet or a lamp-to-a-moth for criminals and psychopaths.
This has also at times been true of some organised religions.
It is a lamp to a moth for the criminally inclined by nature of the opportunities it presents for enrichment, aggrandisement or to simply to abuse, kill or enslave one’s fellow man.
Thus it will become over time infiltrated by criminals or the proxies for criminals if indeed it was not actually set up by criminals in the first place.
In fact, to the degree that it becomes infiltrated and influenced by criminals, and honest men have trouble operating within its degenerating strictures, honest people will shun it.
There is probably some kind of tipping point or “critical mass” where it becomes so shunned by honest people it is well nigh impossible to find in its ranks men of true calibre, into whose hands the governance of a nation should be trusted by anyone in his right mind.
One has but to look at the present government of the UK for an example. Look at the trouble the Tories are having finding a leader of any quality, a plight so desperate that Boris Johnson is the best they can come up with.
Even a government founded upon some worthy goal or dream will in time find that it and its policies and laws have been by increments hijacked to one degree or another by those with their own nefarious objectives and not the well being of man at heart and the dream waylaid, corrupted or simply abandoned.The governments of the US and EU are examples and there are many more.
Thus is it is vital for the people not to permit an erosion of accountability or the evolution of an echelon that is above or exempt from the laws proscribing criminal conduct that apply to the rest of us.
It is vital to prevent the removal of power into the hands of distant and unaccountable bodies and to recognise that behind any effort to so remove power and accountability there lies, inevitably, one criminal agenda or another.
This is a survival point for all of us and, more importantly for our children and our children’s children, lest we or they wake up one day to find ourselves at the whim of some mighty and distant machine that serves the needs of one criminal cabal or another and which we have virtually no influence to correct and render more benign.
This is why I personally hope we will leave the EU.
It is not an economic issue because neither Independence nor Union as currently envisaged address the underlying flaws that cause economies to splutter and stall like cars with the wrong fuel in the tank.
Neither is it born of scorn for the dream of a Europe united in peace, communication, trade and friendship and in a spirit of mutual help. I am after all, married to a French woman who is herself half french and half Algerian and my grandchildren’s father is Austrian.Yet that dream will be better realised when nations are free and stable.
It is born of the desire to see us served by a government designed and run for all the people. Independence will not automatically bequeath us such a government, far from it, for the UK government serves sly and self-serving vested interests just as the EU government does.
It is born of a desire to reverse the dangerous flow of power and accountability away from the people into the grasp of echelons ever more distant and obscure and have it reside for the time being with the UK Parliament where we will have at least a better chance of then detecting and correcting the obvious flaws in our governance. – Steve
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
