The United States has been habitually, compulsively occupied with maintaining its "Right" to a mélange of insidious addictions. Hyper-Habitual, First Abuser Privilege has fostered a broad, increasingly desperate attempt to avoid the ever present and imminent systemic risks that surround each and every American. The Dukes of Moral Hazard have sprung a Global Trap. WE stand to lose the most as the balance of the Globe consumes far less. Our gluttonous diet of Credit has grossly disfigured our former shapely and svelte "Born in the 50's" landscape de Americana. Boomers, from Babe's to Echo's will suffer the consequences of binging upon the McQuest for More.
Persistence of habit has merely served to slowly erode the ever present warning signs in our midst, numbing our culture to the potential for change. An act played out ever so skillfully, from Plato's Republic to Bluto's Blutarsky's Animal magnetism, bad habits have been nurtured, "True North" a destination. Representative Governance has given way to Plutocratic Kleptocracy. The Anathematic Antidote exists for those who will remember the costs associated with Liberty, but with a distinct twist... Government has steered the Republic's 18 Wheeler down a perilous path with tyres blowing out one by one, we've arrived with overheated rims and are quickly grinding to a halt, for one and for all.
In the Age of the "Not too clear Nuclear... Deterrence," there remain palatable alternatives. Big Government stands, as it always has, the deterrent to Freedom. "Rights" have been high jacked by a gradual, immoral erosion of the Truth, our most precious commodity. The Strata of Economic and Political institutions are mired in self serving and corrupt carcass cleaning.
We are our greatest impediment to "Freedom" and as such our apathy has led us here.
Someone once said "We get the Government we deserve."
On that count, I'm not certain, but would observe "WE" are all that stands in the way of our Governance.
The Golden Age of Self Reliance is upon us; we may either stand or fall.
This series of Essay's will focus largely upon what our Republic should stand "For" as opposed to "Against." I welcome your comments and look forward to an engaging exchange to further our Republics rightful return.
I remain committed to restoring Honest Money as our medium of exchange; it's not the answer, but part of "The" beginning.
