Picturing The March Of Tyranny

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Well-known libertarian cartoonist Ben Garrison has previously summarized the state of the States perfectly in this image. As he describes it - the cartoon "shows how the banking and corporate masters (crony capitalist fascists) control both major parties behind the scenes. They keep us distracted with left vs. right while giving us the illusion that voting for one of the other parties will solve things. It won't." It appears his 'prophecy' has grown more and more the reality in the past years...

"Unfortunately you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that's at the root of all of our problems. Some of these same voices do their best to gum up the works. They'll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave and creative and unique experiment in self rule is somehow just a sham with which we can't be trusted." - Firecracker Popsicle

They made that all but impossible after 2000.

I used to go to the polls and cast an empty ballot much to the non-amusement of the "poll judges" there. I figured that that made my vote really "count,” as I showed and “voted” for those I had trust and faith in. I would get my ballot, and walk over directly to the box and deposit it. They would almost always try to intercept me and then stand in bewilderment as I walked out.

After 2000 they put those machines in that allowed the "judges" to handle your now not anonymous ballot as they fed it into a "validation" machined on top of the box.

Well, in 2004 a chained-immigrant descendant that had never missed a meal accosted me for trying to feed my non-punched ballot into the “validation” machine. She was very hostile and grew more so when I explained that smearing my shit on the ballot would be more representative of what I thought.

She accused me of some kind of crime and when I stood my ground a more sensible white "judge" came over and showed the cow how to pass it thru the machine.

I haven't gone near a poll since. Don't even have a clue where my "polling place" is at this new place. Neighbor tried to tell me a while back, and the sheeple got an undesired education on the criminality of voting, participation, in a system that is criminal. LOL

this sort of statist platitude would seem to hinge on "self rule" being what we have, does it not?

```

That’s interesting, because the people who actually began this “brave and creative and unique experiment in self-rule” were kind of over-the-top anxious about protecting that experiment from tyranny lurking just around the corner. For example:

John Adams:

“Obsta principiis,” nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud, is the only maxim which can ever preserve the liberties of any people. When the people give way, their deceivers, betrayers, and destroyers press upon them so fast, that there is no resisting afterwards.

James Madison, on militarism leading to tyranny:

A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defence [against] foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home.

George Washington, on tyranny as the result of any erosion of the constitutional separation of powers:

The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position…If in the opinion of the People the distribution or modification of the Constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit which the use can at any time yield.

Madison again, warning about executives who “can’t wait” for Congress to make laws:

The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.

Patrick Henry

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

Patrick Henry again:

“I am not well versed in history, but I will submit to your recollection, whether liberty has been destroyed most often by the licentiousness of the people, or by the tyranny of rulers? I imagine, sir, you will find the balance on the side of tyranny.”

For good measure, how about a quote from Frederick Douglass, who knew from experience what happens when people turn a blind eye to tyranny like the kind that existed in the antebellum South:

"Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and those will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."

There is some sanity to that because voting gives the 2 parties power.  They can say x number of people voted for us therefore we have a mandate.  Voting only mattered when red team or blue team differed.  Big Politics is just professional wrestling for policy wonks.  Not voting is the way to go.  On election day just vote on the questions and not for any politician.

They can pretty much say anything they want, if we vote or not. They already have the power and voting is only to allow us a sense of a voice.

Everything is about manipulation and pacification now. Yes it will precipitate some radicalism, but as with past totalitarian takeovers, it is a necessary part of the assimilation process. Think of it like a nuclear centrifuge, spinning faster and faster, separating the "heaver" elements.

"Big Politics is just professional wrestling for policy wonks."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kayfabe

In professional wrestling, kayfabe is the portrayal of staged events within the industry as "real" or "true," specifically the portrayal of competition, rivalries, and relationships between participants as being genuine and not of a staged or pre-determined nature. Kayfabe has also evolved to become a code word of sorts for maintaining this "reality" within the realm of the general public. Kayfabe was long held as a closely guarded secret within the professional wrestling industry; however, with the advent of the Internet, it has evolved into an open secret in the industry that is generally only adhered to during shows.

http://www.edge.org/response-detail/11783

Kayfabe By Eric R. Weinstein

... Evolutionary biologists ... emphasized that it is deception rather than information that often plays the decisive role in systems of selective pressures. ...

Yes, that is old news.

The March of Tyranny began more as a crawl, before it became a walk, while then it became a sprint towards taking a flying leap.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IJeemTQ7Vk

Century of Enslavement:

The History of The Federal Reserve

That hour and a half documentary starts off with the deliberate lying by omission about "money." The most important social facts are not merely that the monetary system is based on enforced frauds, but also, for generation after generation, the vast majority of people have adapted to that by developing the attitude that they do not want to know! Therefore, in my view, that more that one learns about The March to Tyranny, the worst that gets, because there are no reasonable grounds whatsoever to doubt that runaway fascist plutocracy juggernaut building a fascist police state is going to slow down, much less stop, especially since the vast majority of people have been successfully conditioned to not want to think about the fundamental issues.

So far, while I have seen overwhelming evidence of things getting worse, faster, I have never yet seen anything which would indicate public responses to that which would not only make things continue to get worse, faster. The fake "democracy" is already practically dead. It is practically impossible to imagine any realistic circumstances under which there could be any genuine alternatives worth voting for. There are no feasible ways to imagine how there could be anything else than a fake democracy, in which the only choices were between bad versus worse.

None of the radical truths which would be necessary to begin to understand how and why The March to Tyranny has become completely dominate have any hope in hell of being presented to the general public, much less being voted for. None of the most important issues are on the public radar or public sonar. None of the established "choices" between Tweedledee vs Tweedledum ever talk about anything that matters, in any ways that put the actually important issues into proper perspective, because the established systems already have everything sufficient sewed up by the social facts that the overwhelming vast majority of people are already incompetent political idiots, that want to stay that way.

The ruling classes have been so successful, for so long, in controlling civilization through systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, that only a trivial percentage of the population is aware of the real nature of the problems, while an even smaller percentage of that small percentage has any reasonably coherent ways of even theoretically coping with those situations, rather then merely spouting the same old-fashioned impossible ideals, despite that those have never worked before, but rather tend to actually make the opposite happen in the real world, because the only significant opposition is controlled opposition. The established systems have carefully and craftily been set up so that there is nothing but the illusion of choices. However, learning about that does not give one any better choices, since not participating only continue to provide tacit support to the March to Tyranny.

According to all my political experiments, and court cases related to those political activities, that I have engaged in for thirty years, the March to Tyranny is more like a runaway train wreck, or a runaway steamroller, which is going to continue to get way worse, while there are no feasible ways to do anything else than wait and watch that happen, because there is no doubt that the vast majority of people have become such totally incompetent political idiots, that there is practically no way to do anything to stop the March to Tyranny from continuing to fleece those Zombie Sheeple to exhaustion, and then slaughter them.

My conclusion, after spending several decades learning as much as I could about the roles of money in the political processes, is that doing that was almost totally a waste of time, because the bottom line continues to actually be that about 99% of the people act like Zombie Sheeple, in such a way that there are absolutely no good reasons to doubt that the March to Tyranny will automatically continue to get more and more criminally insane than it already is! The only thing that Picturing The March to Tyranny does is demonstrate more clearly that there is nothing which could actually be done now that was not too little, too late, and too trivial to matter much.

Ha no there isn't, but there is always setting on there about increasing some tax that's going to 'help the children' which means give teachers unions more money. We spend more than we've ever spent on schools, and they keep on getting worse and worse, and we are supposed to believe they are underfunded. Don't really know what a tax on HFTs would do. In general, I'm against anything that gives the govt more money. It might make me feel good to see these fuckers pay up, but the govt will undoubtably use the money for something I don't agree with either so it would kinda be counterproductive. Welfare handouts( corporate and the FSA) or some new war we will probably be embarking on somewhere in the near future. I'll pass on giving them more money.

or increasing capital gains to equivalent income tax rates, or a tax on financial transactions over a certain size generally... or saving hundreds of billions by the simple act of restoring the issuing power to the federl government so that it can, at very least, issue fiat which is debt-free at issuance...and not have to go through megabank middlemen to acquire new debt-fiat...

But you have to bear in mind, most of this country will happily vote for the presumptively awful GOP candidate, while even more will vote for the presumptively worse Hillary for no compelling reason at all.

So really, who are we trying to save?

Taxes are a legislative function, too important for riff-raff like us to decide, so outright omission is the preferred technique. Burying an important issue in a primary of an off year election is another. Nobody can say the prop was never floated to the public. Anther successful example of .guv hiding something in plain sight.

1790's we were free and there was near no Feral Government to speak of. Each Congressional Representative represented 50,000 people.
Today countless administratve agencies make their own laws, arrest you with masked, secret SWAT Gestapo.
Laws, regulations, taxes, codes, rules are countless.
We have not more representation, but ten times by population less. By Feral Government power growth we have even less. Something like 10,000 times less representation. Maybe factors less then that.

We are not free and are not effectivly represented.

Conversation I had a week ago:

Girl: "You don't vote?! You have to vote. People died so you could vote and it is so important."

Me: "Some people died for my God given rights that are in the Bill of Rights, yes. But since then the government has systematically violated those rights and in the last 100 years all of the original God given rights stated as sacrosanct in the Bill of Rights have been violated. So the government is violating something that it itself admits is untouchable so it is illegitimate. When you vote, you say it is legitimate. So really you should not vote and that way tell them they are no longer legitimate."

Remember that the Bible says that ALL ISRAEL will be saved. (That includes the atheist Jews.) In the same passage it also declares that the Jews are ENEMIES.

 

Of course Jesus said "Love your enemies...Do good to those that persecute you for My Name's sake."

 

Judaism is a RACE...not necessarrily a Religion. The Jews are just ONE of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. They were called the Hebrew...the EBUR...EBUR meaning "FROM UR"..from where the Patriarch Abraham originated.

 

Well Abraham begot Issac. Issac begot Jacob. And Jacob's name was changed to ISRAEL. Well Israel had Twelve Sons, one whose name was Judah. The Jews are his offspring...his SEED...his FAMILY...his RACE.

The funny thing is that this is exactly the excuse Obama apologists use to rationalize him as the same as Bush or all other preceding leaders. It is true but it IS worse each time. We allow these fuckers to get by with their corruption and lawlessness simply because their predecessors did, except it appears to get exponentially worse with each iteration. Their actions are no longer hidden or even debatable any longer. They don't care but still deny it even when caught red handed. I believe they are goading us, daring us to act, knowing anything like it will lead to our instant demise. Threats are no longer taken lightly, unless it is done overseas to our own people. Then of course you are entitled to a full trial in federal courts. The rest of us can look forward to indefinite detention...or worse.

Then you haven't been listening lately. Limbaugh still claims his conservative values yet is clearly distancing himself from the Republican party. Lots of people are as they no the shit bomb is going to blow. Republicans have so obviously sold their soul to remain in office that they will do nothing more than symbolic gestures against Obama. Scared shitless of being labeled haters or racists. If any of them had the slightest inclination towards smaller government, it is long lost to self interest. Any changes will come from outside the party, and maybe outside the whole political process.

Listening to the sounds coming from democratic mouths makes it easy to accept what the republicans have to offer, as meager as it is. There are few apparent good choices. A slow and painful demise for all of us. There is a huge perception out there that only fools work. If this holds, it is but a matter of time before the system collapses, running out of other people's money.

Your comment perfectly frames what we face.

The platform of JFK would be rejected as too conservative by most republicans today. Yet you say republicans, which have said that Obamacare doesn't need rejection, only tweaking, and have given in to every Obama move, are extremists. Obama tells us he is willing to compromise with anyone, unless they are a republican in government. The democrats will not let republican bills come to the senate floor for a vote. there is NO compromise. A doubling of debt, the FED completely out of control, record golf games, record fund raising, record nation collapse, record, record, record and yet anyone who resists is and extremist. Go figure.

Really??? In my thinking the current democrats feel like the communist party from the USSR and the current republicans seem like the liberal democrats of the 1970s. The "extreme right" would be composed of Capitalist Skinheads if those even exist. They would be the half brethren of the old Nazis with the minor exception that there was little or no distinction between the Red Soviet Communists and German Nazis. By Hitler's own admission, he built his Nazi power house with little revision from the Red Soviet playbook.

The only really distinctive aspect of Nazism was its over-the-top racism.

The Left has ever since cultivated the Right = Racist meme.

True and solid point, but the right, especially the religious right, use the same tactic when it comes to even quite valid criticism of the Israeli government.

And as a practical matter, the technique is effective because there are a lot of genuine racists who hold a particular position, which may have reasonable and legitimate bases, for the "wrong" reason.

 

Blind support for Likud Israel and de facto open borders may each rest on the successful use of this tactic throughout the media.  It seems clear to me, anyway, that the majority of Americans wants neither blind support for Israel, nor do they want the open borders situation we have now.  I presume most of them aren't merely racist, but the media newspeak essentially frames opposition to blind support/open borders as more-or-less invalid, ab initio, with terms like 'anti-immigrant' and 'anti-Israel' - rhetorically exluding the middle ground, non racialist grounds to want the government to act differently.

They are very happy with their job as the loyal opposition. They can fight the good fight and lose virtually every single one, yet come back to us asking for more power, more concessions, so that they might live to fight another day. They flatly reject anything that would approach change as that would threaten their alliance with the democrats. they are allowed to stay as long as they stamp their feet loudly in protest, but do little else. they controlled the whole thing for the first six years of Bush and accomplished nothing. No tax reform. No banking reform. No border enforcement. No smaller government. Nothing. They lived up to their contract with the democrats. And these republicans absolutely love the growing powers of government, as their thing is about power, right?

The reality is that the vast majority of our leaders of both parties, believe we are weak and simple minded fools that need, or demand a slave protected status. This was the platform of slave owning southerners prior to the civil war, claiming that they were the true benevolents, caring for the less than human, weak and simple minded negro. They see all of us this way. We are all but weak minded animalistic creatures only wanting comfort and immediate pleasure without an inkling of what to do worth real freedom or liberty. Liberty represents a threat to the orderly society and we will be domesticated for our own good, if it calls for prison, circuses, or simply a little calming weed.

They only want to see us happy.

The Republicans don't offer me much, but they don't threaten me as much as the Democrats always do. They're not incessantly trying to ban something -- incandescent light bulbs, adequate-capacity toilet flush tanks, standard-capacity ammo magazines, etc. -- or take something away we've always had. And they're not always trying to force me to do something I don't want to do, or to believe things I know are not true.

I've noticed my Second Amendment rights nearly always take a bigger and more immediate hit when the Democrats have the whip hand.

As far as I can see, the Republicans are nowhere near as hostile to personal and economic liberties as the Democrats.

Oh, well, the Democrats are handing out free pot to the poor in Berkely now, if you care about that ("Good Deltas take their Soma"), and they're pushing hard for gay marriage, if you care about that. I used to stay in some amount of trouble for being altogether too tolerant of homosexuals. It was not that I approved, I was just a real big believer in minding my own damn business, and as a rule other people's sex lives were none of my business, and didn't interest me. 

But I've noticed that mere tolerance or indifference to what other people do in private with their privates is not good enough anymore. Now we are all commanded, on pain of losing our jobs or having our business shut down, or perhaps even being criminally charged with something, to positively and actively celebrate the legal redefinition of marriage. If we don't we are branded as bigots and haters.

It's not enough now to just shrug as the Pride Parade rolls by. Now we're required to jump up on that float. We're ordered by the courts to bake wedding cakes for with two grooms on them.

Great comment, Jungle Jim!  Best one I've seen on ZH in a long time.  

The idea that there is no difference between the left and the right is idiotic and lazy.  The chasm between the left and the right is unbridgeable.  One side will win, and one will lose.

You idiots who believe you are taking some kind of moral high ground with this endless BS that both sides are the same are unwittingly (or perhaps not) HELPING the left.  At least have the guts to pick a side and defend it.

I'm sorry you're having trouble understanding the concept.

The idea is that neither side is for liberty. In that way, they are both the same. To pick a single example, getting robbed to support social programs and the MIC equates to getting robbed to support corporate welfare and the MIC in the pocket of the victim.

'Picking a side' is part of what is called divide and conquor. Go team, GO!

Well, I can see that you're on Team Lazy.  There ARE two sides.  The left and the right are diametrically opposed on every issue, every value, including liberty.  If you believe that neither side is for liberty, then you believe that nobody is for liberty.  Well, I am for liberty.  That's the side I'm on.  

If you mean that there is only one side in Congress (as opposed to what I'm saying, which is that there are two distinct ideologies in the world), then I disagree with that as well.  If you think that Maxine Waters and Tom Cotton are equal in any way, then you need to be tested.  If you sincerely believe that Trey Goudy and Hank (Guam will tip over) Johnson are the same, then I pray that you never vote.  

I don't like being insulting on ZH, but you set the tone with your opening line.  I believe there is a certain mind-set permeating ZH that thinks it is a moral high ground to state that both sides are the same.  This is the equivalent as voting "present."  It is not only lazy, it is intellectually dishonest.  It shows only that you lack the ability to discuss or debate topics in an intellectually honest manner (first tell the truth, then give your opinion), or worse that you simply don't care.

Picking a side is called winning or losing.  If you can't grasp that concept, then it's an almost certainty that you will lose.  There are no guaranteed outcomes, but rest assured that there ARE two distinct sides in this world.  One is good, and one is not.  One will win, and one won't.  I sincerely hope you give that a little more thought than you previously have.

Hi, thanks for your thoughful reply. It's only through honest debate that we can ever hope to arrive at the truth, and I look forward to the coming exchange. 

Setting the tone: For me, your words here set the tone, "The idea that there is no difference between the left and the right is idiotic and lazy." Did I mistake the arrogance and hostility there? I'm ready to admit I was wrong if you have a plausible alternative interpretation.

 

Sometimes people speak at cross purposes because thier mental frames are at odds, and so maybe the best way to begin is to establish a working definition of liberty. What does that word mean to you? Maybe then I can better understand your position.

A course in ziobonics will quickly prove to you that judaism is not a race when convenient but can quickly morph into one when you look at the DNA-Y haplogroup carried by most khazars providing their mother was a khazar. That would include. Napoleon, Hitler, many royal families, including the Shinto in Japan who recognize each other as jewish through this DNA type according to researcher Arimasa Kubo of Japan.  It also includes Israelis and Saudi Wahhabbis, many high nazi officials such as Joseph Goebbels and others. So yes it goes back to those "magic kohan crystals" in momma's blood line.

This particular haplogroup is generally considered more consistent to the neanderthal man of the caucasus as opposed to the cro-magnon man of Europe.

In fact Hitler's half sister Angela moved from the Jewish kitchen in Vienna to Hitler's home in Berchtesgaden and became his house keeper. Hitlers relatives in Ireland also exhibit these same DNA pattern and have indicated in interviews that Hitler trained in at the Tavistock institute in Britain. He was a British agent.

The Left-Right political paradigm has always been a sham, based on the "divide and rule" principle. There is no Right-of-Centre political ideology supported by any political party. They're all on the Left in varying degrees. Soft Left or Hard Left. That's the choice, take your pick. Marxist or Fascist. There's no real differences.

When did you ever hear a political candidiate advocate "small accountable government?? How about reducing the Welfare State or rolling back the powers of The State?? The answer is never, apart from one or two people like Ron Paul, dismissed by MSM as "eccentric" etc. People go into politics to become part of the giant and ever-more-powerful gravytrain, not to downsize government and put theselves out of a job.

Voting for one party to get rid of the other only changes the players, it doesn't change their game because the same Deep State henchmen remain in control from the shadows whoever wins an election. Very little changes, apart from one or two headline policies, bigged up to fool the people.

These are the great truths finally being realised across the Western world. The jigsaw pieces are slowly falling into place.

Quite so. And the immense difficulty many of us enlightened people have, who want to be free, is understanding the mindset of people who want to have - not only their own lives ordered by others - but the rest of us too. Such an infantile mindset is surely the beginning of the end of mankind.

Excellent cartoon. Should have been a vampire squid in there somewhere sucking everyone dry through taxes. Works both ways, end taxes, end the entire civilization we call the government. Only way to get away from such tyranny, well and tranny.

This is not brain surgery here.

Simply don't vote until they install term limits which I realize may be never. Without term limits I struggle to see the relevance of political banter and "tough decisions".

Transition to decentralized systems.

I've never voted, and I am so pleased at how things have turned out that have validated that choice.

We all kinda fucking knew.
