The article posted here, entitled Whom do they serve? When democracy degenerates into oligarchy, gives a very good explanation of how the wafer-thin veneer of democracy overlays and to a large extent acts as a smokescreen that obscures a less benign reality.
The reality is that democracy – if indeed it was ever anything else – has been turned into a con game in which elected governments, brought to power on the back of artful distractions, propaganda, spin, lies and false premises do not, despite their pretence, serve the people.
They take their directions from banking/corporate vested interests that operate as an echelon senior to governments. That echelon acts, in essence, as puppet masters who call the shots and upon whose strings our government and its agencies dance.
Although the aforementioned article cites the USA as its example of the incremental coup d’etat that has subverted and subordinated the governance of that country, let us not be lulled into thinking that the analysis does not apply to the United Kingdom as well.
This is a non-optimum situation so far as our liberty and well being are concerned because those oligarchic powers have shown themselves to be far from benign. We will all be a lot happier once we recognise the extant reality of our situation and refuse to let ourselves be conned, blind-sided and sold a bill of goods by money powers without morals or ethics and who look upon us the way the herdsman views his sheep.
Yet it is well within the power of We, The People, to do something about it.
The first step towards being able to do something about any non-optimum situation is to recognise that the situation exists – something the oligarchs sincerely fear, hence the smoke screen in a determined effort to hide the reality from view.
The second step is to unite in a shoulder or shoulder effort to restore democracy and install a government that is TRULY designed and run for all the people.
Take heart! For the oligarchs, if they have “won” at all, have won merely by default, on the backs of our own lack of vigilance and our own inaction.
They are sincerely afraid of us, yet we have hardly even started to fight back. The fact of the matter is that We, The People, are a sleeping giant. If united,we are the most powerful force there is, quite capable of sweeping aside the criminal elements who have hijacked 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)
