The worst is yet to come

We are in the preliminary phase of one of the greatest conflict in history, quite possible the greatest of them all. Time and again humans of this earth have laid their trust in awful regimes, oppressive tyranny and monstrous ideology. Why? Why have the waste majority, time and again, been ruled by dictatorial warmongers whom do nothing except impose more laws and create more hardship? We have learned nothing from history and in the words of one of America’s greatest men talking about the holocaust and WW II we cannot say those two ending words:

“And then, rising above all this cruelty, out of this tragic and nightmarish time, beyond the anguish, the pain and the suffering for all time, we can and must pledge: Never again.”

I’m not referring directly to Darfur, former Yugoslavia or Iraq. Inexcusable as those crimes may be, they still do not hold a candle to the worldwide plague of collectivism and big governments. Since the dawn of agriculture those of us using our grey matter have known that there is enough food and work for all humans, still people starve by the millions, work is scarce and the lives of billions are under the thumb of malevolent institutions that claims to be saviors.

Anyone reading the journals of human history with an intellectual approach will find that the latest 250 years have both been humanities finest but also most terrible. Finest because we learn how to produce, how to live civilized and how to respect our fellow man. Terrible because so many have listened to those who say we all need to share and that we need to put our trust on the whims of government. No government have never and will never be anything else than a bunch of parasitical thief’s that thrives on the backs of all those it rule. Politicians do not produce wealth; they only redistribute wealth, and in doing so increasing the cost several times over. When a politician gives you something, it is you and your neighbor that pays for it, again several times over. Government cannot create jobs, government do not know how you should live your life. Still almost every person on this planet believes that governments can give them things and make their lives easier. Why?

The peril we stand in front of now might be our biggest challenge ever. Hitler’s tyranny and the Soviet Empire were formidable foes, but most people realized this and took a stand against it. Now we have a much sneakier enemy creeping upon us without us hardly realizing it. Slowly but surely states and governments have been increasing their power several times over in just a couple of decades. This slowly imposing menace is growing accompanied by nice sounding words like “healthcare”, “Save the poor” and “solidarity”. Or in regards to Internet they use carefully selected euphoniums like “child-pornography” to make us more willing to obey their reasoning for monitoring and controlling us. Each year governments everywhere expand the law and increase their power. Each year politicians dupe people into believing in the comforts of totalitarianism.

I believe we have forgotten our ancestor’s cries for democracy, freedom and equality mainly because we live comfortable lives. We are richer, live longer and most aspects and in most countries we are still more free than those people that came before us. And who doesn’t want to save the needy, the hungry and the ill? We all do. So when some smug well-spoken pastor of collectivism bombards us with horrific images of the starving and show statistic about unemployment our first gut feeling is that we most come together and help out. But what we forget is to use the brain. Ask yourself the following two questions and if you answer those in what can only be construed as the only right answer, why the hell do you keep doing, voting and rooting for the non intelligent response?

Who will work the hardest and produce most: The one working for himself and for his own gain or the one who works for the common good of the state?
Who knows best how you should live your life: Is it you yourself or is it the public opinion?

The current economic crisis we have worldwide was created by governmental restrictions on the financial market and by governmental interventions on housing and consumer markets in several countries. This is a fact. Do you really think that we would have this crisis if you, the individual, decided how to work, were to put your money and how to live your life? The crisis has also reached very high grounds mainly thanks to huge governmental loans and the never ending printing of new money. Would you – or would anyone let you – keep borrowing money to pay off earlier debts and keep spending money on things you cannot afford? And governments already deeply in debt and having no real resources to take from, are loaning more money, printing more money and making enormous investments in order to get us out of this crisis. Would you do the same if you look at your own private economy or if it was regarding your company?

But the worst thing about all this is that it leads us further down the same path that got us into this mess in the first place. We are getting more restrictions, more regulations, higher taxes and greater loans upon loans to be paid by you and all your relatives in many generations to come. This crisis isn’t going to and cannot end, not even if they “halter” or “stop” this crisis temporally. The problem remains, now even worsened. And with low production capacity in regard to the rest of the economy and with so much money being flooded into the market this is going to be a spectacle of incomprehensible horror.

The last time we had a situation like this, we got to see the rise of the two main killing ideologies ever seen, National Socialism and communism. What do you think is going to happen this time? And if I’m right that this crisis soon turns into a depression and if I’m right that this most likely will be worse than anything before, what will happen then? How will the world look in 15 years from now? In my mind that’s not a pretty picture. And who is really responsible for this?

"It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them because in spite of everything I still believe that people are good at heart. I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness. I hear the ever approaching thunder which will destroy us too; I can feel the suffering of millions and yet, if I looked up into the heavens I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end and that peace and tranquility will return again."

  1. Sanna ord de. håller med dej 100%. folket är inte så medveten om vad som händer. och nu när dom vill reglera internet så är de ju fullt möjligt att dom tar bort alla regerings kritiska sidor

  2. Det är inte bara fullt möjligt, jag tror det är ett faktum att det kommer att ske. Pö om pö givetvis, men icke desto mindre. Kanske inte så mycket i Sverige, iaf inte i början, men i USA och här i UK där jag bor har det ju redan börjat. Enda fria rösten kvar, givetvis måste den tystas. Hade för övrigt besök från FBI häromdagen på bloggen. Undrar hur länge man får fortsätta skriva... :)

  3. Well du verkar verkligen inte gilla staten, jag förstår din åsikt, men du bör kanske även tänka på att dagens stora transnationella företag eller bara multinationella företag inte är så jävla trevliga alltid heller, det e ju de fria mediabolagen som lobbat fram dessa skit saker som Ipred m.m, sen se bara på hur de privata bankerna i island betedde sig, d var dom & inte staten som lånade pengar för att fortsätta finanisera sin expandering.

  4. Om du läser lite vad jag faktiskt skriver på den här bloggen inser du ganska snart att jag också sågar såväl företag som media. Och ekonomer generellt (inklusive bankfolk) ska vi inte tala om, de kan ju för fan inte ens den simplaste av ekvationer.

    Min huvudsakliga poäng med detta inlägg är dock att det är staten och politiker som ökar sin makt på all denna stupiditet, oavsett om idiotin kommer från den privata näringen eller är deras egna politiska påhitt.

    Det värsta av allt är att det sker med folks goda minne och godkännade. Människor på den här planeten är så otroligt lättlurade och ser inte ens vad som är precis framför dem. Det hopp som fanns ett tag är nu i stort sett helt borta och om något/några år behöver vi inte titta på filmer som "V" eller 1984, vi behöver bara se ut genom fönstret. Och detta är det lyckliga, mest positiva scenariot. Vi är så himla fucked och vad som ytterligare retar mig är att så många "frihetskrafter" lägger ned tid och pengar på att kämpa för enskilda småsaker. Det ändrar inget. En liten seger i det stora hela är helt meningslöst.
