Atilla Mert Sulker says that voting for libertarian-minded candidates to try to curtail the growth of Leviathan may be futile, and it may be better to just wait for an eventual collapse.
Well, I don’t want to live through a “collapse,” because that would be too stressful. I think we need better libertarian communicators who can use media as a bully pulpit to get the ideas of freedom out there, not particularly to run for elective office. Ron Paul was a Congressman for decades, but his bills which attempted to dismantle Leviathan were not passed and certainly not signed by the fascists in the White House.
As I have said, many people are brainwashed in their slavery and their devotion to the State. I know, a lot of people don’t like my using the word “brainwashed,” but if the shoe fits… So, there are millions and millions of brainwashed sheeple who really believe that the next election is the MOST important and “we had better get the right person in there, or else!” I hear that throughout my whole life now, 50+ years.
“Reagan will make things better, you’ll see!” And Reagan made things worse. And more recently, “Trump will make things better, you’ll see!” And Trump is making things worse. Sure, his tax cuts elicited businesses to raise their wages and salaries and give bonuses, and create new jobs, lowest black unemployment, and all that. However, Trump’s individual tax cuts are only temporary, which is part of his sham. His trade war is causing the raising of prices for consumers and raising prices of capital goods for producers and causing uncertainty, that will lower our standard of living. For that he should be impeached! Trump is also spending like a drunken sailor and refuses to make any substantial cuts in the federal budget. But, the brainwashed sheeple love him because he wraps himself in the flag and speaks with the dog-whistle nationalistic rhetoric that makes his followers-off-the-cliff feel good.
And of course people are brainwashed to believe in the system we have now, of elections and voting. They BELIEVE in it like in a Biblical sense. And they look to the robed bureaucrats of the Supreme Court as giving final approval or disapproval to this or that law or policy. And how’s that workin’ out for ya? People spend so much energy on a Supreme Court nomination like it’s the end of the world, like they hysterically do with a presidential election. Just look at the anti-Kavanaugh frothers, making stuff up about him, slandering and smearing. Those drooling political leftists couldn’t care less about Kavanaugh’s police state lower court rulings, because the leftists LOVE the police state! All they care about is ABORTION! And that’s it!
But how will sensible people who are not brainwashed slaves get the message across that centralism is a bad idea, and that decentralization for “America” is the only way as a first step in restoring our freedom? (“America” being another made-up myth that generations of people worship like a god.)
The whole territory of “America” is too big to be all one single country or culture and it needs to decentralize, i.e. dismantle Washington and the U.S. government (that shouldn’t have been formed in the first place). Most people don’t want to face that, because they were raised to believe in the myth and all the mystical claptrap that goes with it.
So, dismantle, decentralize, and states can even decentralize themselves, especially California, Texas, etc. Or merge if they want to, such as communist Connecticut and Marxachusetts. But most important is that people would be able to “vote with their feet” if they don’t like how things are going in their particular state. Currently, U.S. residents can’t “vote with their feet,” because there’s not much of an alternative, and even if there were, the feds have made it difficult to actually physically leave the country. They’re real fascists and communists now from Washington, not just harassing immigrants but “legal” residents as well.
I probably continue to sound like a broken record, but at least I’m in touch with reality on this stuff. But it’s going to take a lot of convincing to sway other people especially those who are brainwashed State-worshipers. One thing to do is to not be employed by anything government. Stay in the private sector. Don’t have any contracts with any government agencies if you own a business. “Snub” government employees: If you own a business you can put up a sign that says those who are employed by government are not welcome here, etc. But don’t do anything illegal, of course.
