Skip to comments.How To Restore the West
Posted on 01/02/2013 12:13:36 PM PST by Little Ray
By any political, cultural or economic measure the nations of the West are in total decline. The historic virtues of hard work, free-market thinking and a common cultural integrity as well as religious and historical principles are gone. They have been subverted and replaced by an emphasis on rampant materialism and a consumer driven society that exceeds 70 percent of GNP in addition to private and public debt. Furthermore, a kind of parasitism has laid claim to Western culture by which sports stars, politicians, media darlings and financial scam artists get recognition and exorbitant incomes while real workers find their incomes falling and promised benefits curtailed.
Western society has lost its way. The main reason is the former political leadership of individual European nations and America, as imperfect as they were, have been co-opted and taken over by a corrupt power elite that uses its control over mob rule democracy and massive financial contributions to buy controlling influence over the "representative" governments of most Western nations.
This control has meant the political leadership and central bankers do not represent the citizens or the best interests of the nation at large. Instead, politics works to advance the financial and global governance interests of a small, secretive power elite. This takeover has bankrupted most nation-states and now threatens all existing fiat paper currencies as well as public and private wealth and retirement savings.
How can the remaining productive, freedom loving people of the West reestablish control over their individual nations and personal lives from an elite that considers us little more than sheep to be shorn and serfs to be pillaged and ruled?
Working through the existing controlled political process to elect a few more freedom advocates is a "feel good action" but in reality, the power elite's domination guarantees this is not a real solution; nothing will change since they control the parasitical, mob rule democracy. Actually, the fake political sacrament of democracy and universal suffrage is the agent of our serfdom rather than an opportunity to participate in genuine self-government.
We have to confront the institutions and false belief "memes" used to control and manipulate Western citizens, rendering us powerless to determine our personal or national destinies. We must restore localism and regional sovereignty over mega and supra-national governments and institutions along with protections to defend us from elite control. These include private free-market solutions when possible, limited and decentralized confederation governments, direct democracy strategies such as referendums that bypass elite actions, repudiation of sovereign debt used to enslave us and competition for paper currencies and central banks as well as audits for all institutions controlling us. We must destroy neocon control and their war making actions over governments and limit the growing cancer of mob rule and pillage of productive citizens. Finally, every people and regional part of larger government entities should have the right of peaceful, democratic self-government and secession as the ultimate bulwark against tyranny.
It is to this end I have developed the 12 Axioms of Freedom Restoration listed below:
Advance Individual & Regional Sovereignty Over Elite & Global Governance Control
Incorporate Human Action & Free-Market Thinking In All That You Do
Promote the Political Benefits of Limited Confederation Government & Referendums
Incorporate "Swiss" Direct Democracy to Control Representative "Mob" Democracy
Work to Remove the Elite Domination Over Politics, Political Parties & Think Tanks
Return Major Powers & Programs to States, Provinces & Regional Jurisdictions
Encourage Governments to Repudiate Destructive & Illegitimate Sovereign Debt
Guarantee Right to Declare Independence From Empires, Occupiers or Unions
Create Public & Private Competition for Monopoly Currency & Central Bank Rule
Audit Central Banks, Claimed Gold Reserves & All Government Entities
Support a "George Washington Style" Peaceful, Noninterventionist Foreign Policy
Return Voting To An Earned Privilege Rather Than a Mob Right to Pillage
More details and information will follow on each of the 12 Axioms in future editorials.
My opinion is that it is time no, not any later than now, to think and act positively and productively.
The points he made seem sound.
Anyone trashing him and his ideas I will condider worthy of never reading again if they don’t have any better ideas.
And I will resolve to proofread yikes
Hire a new Sheriff!
kill all the communists and muslims
Unfortunately, I think “Guarantee Right to Declare Independence From Empires, Occupiers or Unions” may be directed, at least in part, against Israel. I don't consider Israel to be an “occupier” but many do.
I agree with all of the above points, and would also suggest two modifications...
1. Wrap the entire thing in a ‘Flame Keepers’ movement that resembles the social/spiritual dynamic of ‘Promise Keepers’.
2. Add a personal commitment of adherents to promote their own welfare through the welfare of their employer. So, a member of ‘Flame Keepers’ would be a sought-after employee.
Also, the name ‘Flame Keepers’ refers to keeping alive the ‘flame of Western Civilization’.
The West cannot be restored.
The demographics have changed too drastically.
You can’t ‘restore the West’ until you know what happened and why. Objectivism is where to look.
Out of 12 “axioms”, the only one I have any control of is #2: “Incorporate Human Action & Free-Market Thinking In All That You Do.” I’ll continue doing that.
The People In Charge continue to benefit from doing the opposite of the other 11.
That's a rational course of action only if one's employer can be trusted to use layoffs only as a last resort and not as a fiscal tool.
seem reasonable - when is next editorial?
The problem is not merely economic/cultural/political...but spiritual at its root. THAT component must be addressed.
“Objectivism is where to look.”
Not unless you consider MAN to be an end in himself.
“By any political, cultural or economic measure the nations of the West are in total decline.”
Stick it in your butt, you French surrender monkey. If you don’t have the guts to take the fight to the chicken-shit, gutless leftists, go hide under a rock. Furthermore, FU.
Of course I do.
Ultimately, you may be in for quite a surprise!
You mean that there really IS a flying spaghetti monster?
...a flying spaghetti monster?
Not that I’m aware of...AND I don’t believe that I alluded to any such thing.
I shouldn’t have assumed you knew about the FSM.
You are correct. You know what they say about the word,”assume.” I occasionally make the same mistake.
