The Sweeping Torrent Of Boundless Ambition And Corrupted Morals


Politicians, bureaucrats, et al. are wordsmiths. They twist words that sound good to us but lead to opposite conclusions. This semantic trickery is used in everything and every proposed piece of legislation.

Many of them are lawyers and doublethink legalese is their forte. Their political life is all about deception. This is their cover so that they hide the fact that they work for the government.

The politicians’ fiat mentality can be described as a parasite that attracts other parasites of like mind. The fiat (paper money) mentality is rot and decay that attracts likes because they can’t survive independently as creators of wealth.

They love the politics of envy; they are the epitome of greed, selfishness, laziness and physic dependence on authoritarianism. They are vipers who eat their young. A police state is their ultimate dream.

They protect the power elite and they want power over the people at the people’s expense. They want the world in a concentration camp. They harbor a perfect hate for humanity and they would love the Gestapo.

Totalitarianism evolves from the breakdown of law and order through a synthetic and secretly directed make-believe democratic process. The breakdown of law and order is a political cancer that must be concealed in order to extend the system until the rape is over. Concealing the breakdown of law and order in the United States is of the very highest priority. It is the hidden national agenda.

Man, his work ethic, his spirit, his emotions, his duty and his morality are all distorted by a fiat system in the latter days. There is no more terra firma; all is quicksand. The debasement of morality is no surprise to the discerning. I and others have been foretelling it.

On the one hand, we have the boundless ambition without morality. On the other, we have the supine venality of the dependent class. The Founders foresaw it.

In an early draft of his first inaugural address, George Washington wrote in 1789:

The blessed Religion revealed in the word of God will remain an eternal and awful monument to prove that the best Institution may be abused by human depravity; and that they may even, in some instances be made subservient to the vilest purposes. Should, hereafter, those incited by the lust of power and prompted by the Supineness or venality of their Constituents, overleap the known barriers of this Constitution and violate the unalienable rights of humanity: it will only serve to shew, that no compact among men (however provident in its construction and sacred in its ratification) can be pronounced everlasting an inviolable, and if I may so express myself, that no Wall of words, that no mound of parchm[en]t can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the one side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other.

It’s taken 224 years, but America has arrived there.

    “Our Rights”?????? The rights of any human are vested in the hands and minds of a very select few! The only rights we plebs have left are our own beliefs.

    Quite right Bob, however the “busy people” believe the more laws they can create, more order will follow or is it more “revenue” will be generated? Control, control, control.

    We’ll see who survives when the excrement hits the fan- those weasly, whiney, wimpy, pathetic bags of wind and narcissistic hate- or the people that cling to our guns and our Bibles! Which characteristics are more substantial?!

      Likely many that know they won’t survive will choose to take the statists out for you seeing their demise.

        If you’ve never read ‘Absolved’ or ‘Enemies, Foreign and Domestic’ you need to look them up on-line and read them.

        Both address exactly what you’re talking about.

          2400 years ago Sun Tzu wrote “The Art of War” and not much has changed since. Eric Hoffer wrote “The True Believer” in the 1950s. Calvary or a mechanized both send dust skyward in vertical columns, and infantry still keeps dust just a bit wider than its formation. Damage that can be caused in a 1st world country is only limited by tools available at Home Depot, and and an internet connection. Never push an enemy so hard he fights like a dead man, for he has nothing to loose.

          Those who have the greatest impact on a society are scribes unhappy with society promoting the Utopia they plan for others, and drones with such a low mean opinion of their miserable lives, they are attracted to the scribe living as part of a collective to achieve Utopia.

            Have SunTzu (Kindle version, I believe) but, have not read “The True Believer.” Will have to look it up, Thank You.

            God Bless and Stay Safe

            Nothing really changes Bob, it only moves in circles changing slightly the next time it shows up. Read about Lycurgus of Sparta who influenced Socrates, forward to Rousseau, Maximilien Robespierre, then John Ruskin, Marks and Engels. 2500 years and a wandering straight line to where we are today. “All were a P.O.S. or worse attempting in the words of Fredrick Bastiat “to mold men’s lives like clay on a potter’s wheel”

            History and philosophy do matter! Today we are ignorant of what worked, what didn’t, and why.

            “History and philosophy do matter! Today we are ignorant of what worked, what didn’t, and why.”

            You couldn’t be more correct! How often we’ve been reminded (warned?). Yet, we still do not listen, or learn!

            We all remember being told, by Edmund Burke –
            “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.” and
            Georg Freidrich Wilhelm Hegel, told us –
            “We learn from history, what we do not learn from history.”
            Clarence Darrow, while quoting Hegel, phrased it –
            “History repeats itself. That’s one of the things wrong with history.”
            and, once more
            George Bernard Shaw, said –
            “If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience?”

            Yet, we repeatedly fail to grasp the lesson that the erstwhile Mr. Einstein tried to feed us –
            “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results.”

            Do none of our modern-day politicians study history and realize how misguided and futile their philosophies are?
            Do none of our citizens study history and realize how misguided and futlie our politicians’ philosophies are?

            Of course that leads us into a whole new subject of education of our young people in history and the phiosophy of governments.

    Definition of politics,….
    Poli = Many
    Tics = blood sucking parasites

    Sounds accurate to me!
