Fascism’s inexorable advance

Politics cannot be separated from economics or social science or the law. All are results of human choice and action and all are intimately related. Some choices come upstream of all others thus drawing a framework within which all others evolve; the choice that is upstream of all others is our monetary system.

The deliberate but arbitrary choice of a fiat monetary system must perforce lead the entity that maintains exclusive control of the monetary system to becoming the largest actor in the economy thus influencing the law thus politics thus the social sciences.

Fascism and/or corporatism is the inescapabale and logical conclusion of a fiat monetary system. As the presumed beneficial role of the currency gradually wanes, government has a vested interest in at first tolerating but then progressively colluding-in and eventually sponsoring legislation that is contrary to stated moral or fiduciary values of yore.

The only question is when does society deem that enough is enough.

But the more important question is how society comes to deem that enough is enough and what legislation it may be capable of vetoing or enforcing in order to avoid the most undesirable, but logical, outcome of a fascist state. That is, when are we collectively going to take the steps required in order to bring order to our monetary system, our economies, our political systems and avoid a perpetual state of war that as of now is guaranteed to evolve into a world war.

I don’t have an answer to that question other than to say that the only true, peaceful and legal instrument that is still within reach of anyone that understands what is going on and that wishes to effect political change is to accumulate gold and silver bullion.

When all is said and done, as our governments, wittingly or not, are hell bent on destroying the currency in order to perpetuate a perceived desirable political system, bullion is the only thing that could alter the otherwise logical course a fiat monetary system dictates.

Excerpt (emphasis added):

On Jan. 5, a ruling by the Federal Appeals Court in the District of Columbia gave away the most essential protection of liberty by declaring that the U.S. government is not bound by law during war. The ruling absolves Washington from complying with America’s own laws and from complying with international laws, such as the Geneva Conventions. It makes a mockery of all war crime trials everywhere. By elevating the executive branch above the law, the court gave the government carte blanche.

The rationale offered by the court for refusing to uphold the law came from Judge Janice Rogers Brown, who said that America had been pushed by war past “the leading edge of a new and frightening paradigm, one that demands new rules be written. War is a challenge to law, and the law must adjust.” By “adjust” she means “be set aside” or “be thrown out.”

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to defend both the Constitution and the principle that government is not above the law. Last Dec.14, the Supreme Court refused to review a ruling by the Federal Appeals Court in the District of Columbia, which dismissed a torture case with the argument that “torture is a foreseeable consequence of the military’s detention of suspected enemy combatants.” In other words, neither U.S. nor international laws against torture can be enforced in U.S. courts. The opinion [PDF] was written by Judge Karen Lecraft Henderson.

The “war on terror,” which is enriching Halliburton, Blackwater (now operating under an alias), and the military/security complex, while denying Americans health care, is running up debt that is a threat to Americans’ purchasing power and living standards. The contrast between America’s sanctimonious rhetoric and the murder of civilians and torture of prisoners has destroyed America’s reputation and caused Europeans as well as Muslims to despise the United States.

The sacrifice of the Constitution and rule of law to a hyped “theorist threat” has destroyed the heart and soul of America herself.

As a poet wrote, “our world in stupor lies.

My final thought is this. We are ostensibly fighting “terrorists” because they threaten our way of life. Clearly, the terrorists have won.
