How Government Confiscates Your Wealth
March 3, 2014 by Bob Livingston
Government is by far the biggest expense that citizens have.
Through a complicated maze of propaganda, “public education,” political chicanery and a veritable army of sociopathic politicians and parasite bureaucrats, America has been hollowed out, leaving only a zombie nation totally ignorant of history and their human condition.
Let’s take a look at just what a sociopath or psychopath is. It is the only way to understand most politicians and bureaucrats.
Psychopaths may be social or antisocial as manifested in stealth criminal or amoral behavior without empathy, remorse or guilt. Psychopaths and sociopaths have great capacity to have dual personalities. They say what they know voters want to hear but use the privileges of their office to aggrandize themselves and their cronies. They act with such social two-facedness that they may stay in office for years carrying on great deception and doing great harm to the country.
Worst of all, sociopaths and psychopaths may be criminal and commit criminal acts while lacking a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.
Sociopaths and psychopaths are highly skilled with language, even gifted politically. So we have to watch what they do more than what they say. This is something few people can accomplish. It is very easy for a sociopath or psychopath to manipulate you by saying exactly what you want to hear. This is his front.
The voters are gullible and blind to sociopathic political trickery and have been for years and even decades. They are victims of what Edward L. Bernays described as an invisible government that is the true ruling power of the country. Bernays, the nephew of Sigmund Freud, described in his book, Propaganda, how the unseen hands of these few men pull the wires that control the public mind. I described more about this in my column, Decoding The Political Message: Politicians, Governmentspeak And Brainwash.
It is a known fact that at this time in the U.S., 50 percent of the population supports the other 50 percent with their income taxes. The producers support the non-producers. The political class and their propaganda machine push the notions that the producers must “pay their fair share” and “give back” to the community. And then there is that subtle economic class war syndrome that implies that the accumulation of wealth makes one dirty.
“Pay your fair share” is a control phrase created to condition the public mind to a perverted “fairness” that uses an altruistic public to feel obligated morally to pay taxes. It tells the conscious mind to “do the right thing.” This phrase helps extract tax money without allowance for logic or legality.
“Give back” is another control phrase created to condition the public mind that what everyone has comes from the state and giving back a portion is the moral thing to do. President Barack Obama invoked a turn of this phrase when he said, “You didn’t build that” to business owners.
For a hundred years, Americans have been victimized by a state-sponsored socialist, altruistic, collectivist social and educational system which has produced a popular mentality of diminishing the individual and independent thinker to a collectivist mind (mentality) which can be esoterically swayed, directed and channeled against their own best interest. The virtue and sanctity of the individual person and ego is no more, and anathema to the state.
What does it all mean? It means to develop a state of mind that gives ones’ self and production to the state. Each individual, in order to be a good citizen of the state, must contribute most of his means and be grateful for the services the state returns — whether they are necessary or useful or not.
Note from the Editor: As a reader you deserve to know the truth behind the economic disaster America faces. I’ve arranged for readers to get free copies of two books that reveal the sinister plot by the US Government to steal our wealth—a plot Merrill Jenkins, Sr. (the Original Monetary Realist) tried to expose at great risk. His books are hard to find, but these books include rare transcripts from his lectures. Click here for your free copies.
Your Representatives and Senators are supported by the super rich. They legislate in favor of the super rich and the non-producers at the expense of the producing middle class. They never use terms that express what they are doing. They address the people with altruistic and collectivist statements. They use “for the greater good” which translates “share your production with the non-producers and the non-producing parasite system.” The term “the greater good” is not for the individualist and his pursuit of happiness.
The American people still believe, or can easily be persuaded, that if the “Feds” get after you, then you must have done something wrong. They don’t stop to think that the men manning the guns are government employees. They are paid gunmen, even if they are ordered to shoot their brothers and sisters; and they are doing so in increasing numbers.
This mindset has trickled down to the local police, who are becoming increasingly militant and increasingly militarized and increasingly are showing psychopathic behavior. In Connecticut there is a showdown looming over guns confiscation. As many as 375,000 gun owners have ignored the new law requiring them to register their so-called “assault rifles” (a propaganda term). Some are asking the State’s law enforcement officers if they will attack gun owners and forcefully confiscate unregistered weapons.
Unfortunately, as Connecticut State Police Spokesman Lt. Paul Vance told one woman, the police are fully prepared to put their boots on the necks of Connecticut gun owners. When she called to question her husband’s liability under the law, Vance told her she sounded “un-American” and “anti-law” when she questioned the law’s validity. When she reminded him that the State police work for the people and are servants of the people, Vance responded that “I’m the master, ma’am. I’m the master.”
Big government has an endless bag of tricks to keep the pot of population boiling over with issues that divide the people against themselves. The psychopaths use assaults on the people and their freedoms as diversionary tactics to sow discord and unrest as they tear down the system step by step. The rule is that the people are always manipulated against their best interest over time. First, the people are pitted against each other. Then they create a false dialectic to create the illusion of choice in order to create a further division and hide their theft and destruction.
People with system blinders on cannot see the axiom that “things that are equal to the same thing are equal to each other.” If two politicians fall under different party labels but, upon objective analysis, they have the same philosophy and approximately the same voting record, they are the same in reality.
An inconsistent mind knows not the difference in system-taught altruism and the sour odor of fraud upon the people. It cannot see through the deceptive fog how government sucks out and squanders a people’s wealth and their very existence.
By slowly changing their psyche to collectivism and altruism, their morality becomes quicksand and reality becomes spurious and frivolous. Collectivism and altruism diminishes individualism and transforms the mind. Collectivism and altruism are the rot of morality and individualism. The people evolve into nothing more than an expression of the state.
