This is just a question to ponder posting. I’ll list some highly likely factoids about the world today, then ask if, or how, they could be overcome, to restore Western Democatic Republics answerable to their people.
We know the voting process is pwned and buggered. We also know the present class of political office holders is there because of that buggery, so will have no desire to “fix it”; which from their POV is a personal threat. Is there a way to fix this? If it is not repaired, how can we have anything else returned to normal? Are there enough honest people in government and the political parties to get the needed changes done?
It looks to me like #1 on this ToDo List is removing Dominion, their machines, and their Chinese owners from the vote counting process. Then right behind it at #2 is preventing ballot stuffing in all its forms: Mules, ballot harvesting, mail in ballots, elections over weeks when the law says 1 day only, proper citizen only with ID voting in person, remove the dead from voting rolls. Can this be accomplished against the DNC pressure to fraud based systems and the RINO acquiescence? Are there enough uncorrupted areas to form a base from which to grow back a trustworthy system? Anything else? Like a visible process to remove partisan hacks from positions of athority over the voting process, or assigning folks to duty rosters randomly to hinder collusion?
Rule Of Law
We have lost rule of law. We now have rule of lawyers and money. Soros buys the DAs. They let free Friends Of Soros & the DNC (even for serious crimes like riot, arson, trespass, assault, intimidation) while treating jay-walking by their opponents as a capital crime. We have no “equality before the law”. It looks like lawyers professional organizations are fine with this. Where are the disbarments? Judges are being appointed for the purpose of corruption of legal process and partisanship.
Have we lost the law schools? I just don’t know how far upstream is the rot. Do they teach legal ethics anymore? Are the professional bodies now political sock puppets? Is there any path back to “equal before the law” and “rule of law” (not lawyers and money)? Can the courts be made trustworthy again instead of Political Roulette and luck of the draw (judge shopping)? Judges are now chosen as political warfare tokens, how can that process be changed back to looking at which person has fealty to The Law and not the party agenda?
Especially “higher education”, has become a toxic cesspool of political indoctrination. I saw this starting in the 70s.
Some of it is just a self selection bias. In the early 80s, when in an MBA program in California, the professors semi-joked that the Business Program was the only school left at the University with any significant number of Republicans. Interviewing for a Computer Science teaching position, I could tell from the questions of The Committee that they were looking for a Left Wing Person, and I would not be comfortable (or likely selected), so went elsewhere for a job. How can the tendency to “first mover advantage” leading to political homogeneity be reversed? Do we need political quotas in schools? Segregation of education by party with all Republican and all Libertarian schools on offer? Vouchers?
How does the present corrupt system get fixed? Napolitano (among others) appointed Chancellor at something like $400,000 /year as political plum, not merit in teaching. Do we need to make public school officials an elected office? One with political quotas? Teacher selection by the public, not committees?
Or maybe just cut off funding and let it collapse. It is no longer fit for purpose (of creating well rounded citizens with skills to produce) so better off without it at all.
The product of the above, or the consequence? It is clear just ftom their bank account growth that for most of the present crop of politicians: their purpose in office is to get as much public money into their bank accounts as possible. Corruption laws are not enforced; or are even erased by these folks.
Perhaps we need a constitutional amendment that says: Elected officials and their immediate family will be audited upon election, at the end of their term, any net worth in excess of their entry value will be forfeit. Couple that with one that says “ALL laws will apply equally to law makers and to other citizens. “…
Or maybe just have a post term vote that asks “Ought this office holder be hung?”… with a listing if family wealth on entry and exit from the job…
There are a host of foreign agencies in use to corrupt and take down the nation states of western democratic republics. From non-treaty “treaties” like the Paris Climate fraud “Accords” who’s purpose is to funnel $200 Billion a year into pockets around the world, to the entire UN Structure designed to promote Socialism & Communism while harming us, to Soros and his money laundry NGOs, Klaus Schwab and his WEF, the Davos Crowd and more. How do we effectively remove their tentacles from OUR Elected government?
Do we just ban foreign NGOs outright? Withdraw from the UN? Constitutional amendment to make clear the obvious that all treaties are void if they conflict with our Constitution? Ban all money transfers from Government to any foreign body?
The TLA Problem
Our “Three Letter Agencies” have been corrupted into service against our citizens.
The FBI creates crimes and criminals on demand for political gain of TPTB.
The CIA is in the business of murder, drug & gun running, destruction of other folks (often elected) governments, money laundering, assassinations, bribing, and more dirty tricks. Is that really representative of who we are and how we wish the world to see us? There’s fair evidence that the TLAs have decided to choose our governments for us, just as they did for foreign countries. Their Black Budgets are gigantic and unknowable (running drugs is profitable).
Can such uncontrolled and unanswerable power with a charter of ctiminal actions really exist for long without becoming the evil it was created to thwart? Once corrupt, is there any way short of cancellation to recover it to a moral center and get the politics out?
All Governments Are Corrupt, But Some Are Useful
Is that truly the state of things? Is there, anywhere in the world, a model government without corruption? We know Communist China is corrupt. So too the EU. The USA clearly and blatantly so. The UN worse than most. Nations with royalty just call it royal privilege and normalize it.
Is this all just tilting at windmills as there is no good government extant in the world; so better off just finding a way to get your “Piece of the Action”? Even the Vatican has a long history of corrupt Popes (some bought the job…) so even a revival of religion is suspect.
So is there a cure for this global corruption that can get us back to a nation of, by, and for The People? Or do we just Go Galt and await the inevitable collapse as the parasites kill the host?
