A Distressed Government

Government has become many things – all of which are showing serious signs of distress. It is crumbling. They know it, and are afraid. Perhaps this goes a long way in explaining their irrationality.  Fear now permeates the very fabric of governmental existence. Hypocrisy, recklessness, denial, and criminality are rampant. Government has evolved into a monster of epic proportions that is now turning on itself and eating its own. Paranoia has set in.

Government has long been a purveyor of fear. Whipping up fear amongst the public and directing it where they want it is a favored tactic. But they’ve become a victim of their own policies. In deciding who they want us to fear the most they are seeing enemies everywhere, enemies of their own making, as they work feverishly to distract us from their real agendas and nefarious covert actions.

Government has become home and haven for the elite criminal class. They’ve cloaked themselves in a veneer of respectability, but the cloak is wearing thin. They make their own rules with a reward and punishment system that’s the reverse of that which is applied to us. They think nothing of the harm they do to others. It’s this very narcissistic arrogance which will, in the end, be their undoing. How sad they’re so deeply mired in their own filth that they’re unable to dig themselves out.

Government has become a living symbol of lost hopes, dreams, and opportunities. People are tired, stressed, numb, and at a loss. Through television, political double-speak and false promises, people are being bombarded with a false reality that doesn’t mirror their own existence. They need to keep false hope alive so they can continue to profit from us in every way possible, for as long as possible. It’s interesting to ponder what’s going to happen when there’s nothing left to take. Perhaps it’ll end with them taking out each other. From the looks of it, that’s already begun. Now that would be a show worth watching.

Government has become an elite university specializing in deceptive, manipulative, and threatening language – their stock in trade. Diplomacy and honest dialogue are viewed with derision, and they sneer at those who are skilled in it. They don’t conduct themselves in the manner of seasoned statesman, but as immature, spoiled children. It’s all about the show, the glitz, and sleight-of-hand magic tricks. Snake oil salesman highly encouraged to apply.

Government has become practiced in relying on omissions and denials, especially when it comes to pointing accusatory fingers at others. They commonly fault others for what they themselves are guilty of. Crucial pieces of information are always withheld or obscured. They cannot win against the truth and they know it, and so the truth must be avoided at all costs. This is what makes relying on the mainstream news so dangerous. They believe what they’re told to believe, and relay what they’re told to relay. Their job is no longer truth in reporting, but propaganda.

Government has become cumbersome. It’s top-heavy and ineffective. The right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing. All the various departments, bureaus, committees, branches, etc., etc., are all so busy doing their “very own important work” that the world outside their doors is neither here nor there. It’s like a very large puzzle with a lot of missing pieces, or has an elevator that doesn’t go all the way to the top, or is a few bricks shy of a load, or a few peas short of a casserole. Get the metaphorical picture?

Government has become a planet unto itself – straight out of The Twilight Zone. (Theme music, please). I sometimes wonder, when these people speak, just who it is they’re speaking to. It certainly isn’t to anyone who possesses a questioning and independent mind. They’ve modeled themselves into ridiculous perversions of how government officials should be. Perhaps they just enjoy the sound of their own voice so much that it matters not to them how they’re perceived, and even less if they’re believed. But their act is getting old, and they aren’t drawing the crowds they used to.

Government has also become its own worst nightmare. Their behavior has become so erratic, obsessive, and nonsensical that they fail to see that the real danger comes from within – from them. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. They’ve lost control of their own plot. Just watch the crumbling of the political parties as one example. They’re destroying themselves from within with scandals, infighting, a refusal to face reality, and an unwillingness to change. I often think we’re witnessing, in real-time, a true descent into madness. They’ve cloaked themselves so thoroughly in their own deceptions that they cannot see what is in front of their faces.

Comparisons are often drawn between George Orwell’s book 1984 and government today. But I think the truth is worse than that. I think that book was read, greatly admired, and adopted many years ago as the government’s bible; the end goal. A book of fiction turned into the ultimate reality. It isn’t going quite as smoothly as they envisioned though. People are beginning to wake up, and allies are getting fed up. But never forget that fear makes for a dangerous foe, and fear is playing a crucial role in government’s actions. How very scary it is to live with such people in control.
