The Reason Obama Is Constitutionally and Morally Wrong.

2014-10-12-obama

Our Founding Fathers in their Genius and Love for us provided for us certain Positive Freedoms.  They created for us a government with checks and balances to protect us from tyranny in any form.  Our Representative Democracy was created to protect us from Tyranny in any form and one of those forms was The tyranny of the majority.

tyr•an•ny (ˈtɪr ə ni) 

n., pl. -nies.

1. arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.
2. the government or rule of a tyrant.
3. a state ruled by a tyrant.
4. oppressive or unjust government.
5. undue severity or harshness.
6. a tyrannical act.

Obama has embraced identity based politics and in doing so he is catering to the tyranny of the majority in order to arbitrarily turn the tide of public opinion in his favor.  Name dropping Ferguson Missouri in front of the United Nations, how would he feel if Michele Obama aired their dirty laundry in public?

Catering to the Mexican vote and the Vote of the Muslim majority the fastest growing population of the most illiterate and violent people on earth, is an obvious breach of protocol.

The phrase “tyranny of the majority” (or “tyranny of the masses“), used in discussing systems of democracy andmajority rule, involves the scenario in which decisions made by a majority place its interests above those of an individual or minority group, constituting active oppression comparable to that of tyrants and despots.[1] In many cases a disliked ethnic, religious or racial group is deliberately penalized by the majority element acting through the democratic process.[citation needed]

Supermajority rules, constitutional limits on the powers of a legislative body, and the introduction of a Bill of Rights have been used to counter the problem.[2] A separation of powers may also be implemented to prevent the problem from happening internally in a government.[2]

Obama, is planning on writing laws and passing them all by himself.

Obama was touted as the next Abraham Lincoln.  Lincoln was the great Uniter, he brought the people together and kept the Union in tact.  Obama is more like the great divider, we have never been more divided as a nation, Feminists, Christians, Muslims, Mexicans, Homosexuals.  It is more like he is trying to start a Civil War than prevent one.

Obama, intellectually, never developed beyond the point of being a biased lawyer, he never even tried to become the mental equivalent of a judge.  He was always one sided and prejudiced.  He has always been on one side, his own side, projecting his sense of self onto people that he identifies with and incapable of being impartial and judicious.

Our government was created to be a meritocracy of Reason and Results, not a tyranny of issues.  The world is not a better place since Obama’s rule began nor is the Nation.  To reward people based on their issues and their feelings of victimization when they haven’t raised themselves to a place where they can create value for people other than themselves, and to put them in positions of authority as equals is a sabotage of our government.  Failure is not equal to success.  Reason is not equal to unreason.  Tacitly validating people’s emotional appeals is a dynamic tautology of a logical fallacy.  The intensity of your emotion doesn’t make you any more correct.

In order to unleash the HIGHEST COMMON GOOD you need the consent of the wisest and most reasonableand most educated.  What Obama is doing is invoking the LOWEST COMMON GOOD.  He is dragging all Americans down to equality with hood rats, and welfare babies in the ghettos of the United States that only parasite off the economy, and they will only ever parasite off the economy because while they benefit from an increased quality of life in the United States they are also contemptuous of our values, the values that create the surplus that creates their quality of life.

Every act of theft or unwarranted gain in a monetary unit decreases all of the value of all of the money in that monetary unit proportionately.  Instead of being lead by our better angels Obama is being lead by his worser demons. 

There are certain terms that are synonymous with tyranny.

Arbitrary comes from the Latin arbitrarius, the source of arbiter; someone who is tasked to judge some matter.[2] An arbitrary legal judgment is a decision made at the discretion of the judge, not one that is fixed by law.[3] In some countries, a prohibition of arbitrariness is enshrined into the constitution.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbitrariness

When one rules in such a way as to create a disparate impact in favor of a people incapable of reimbursing or equitably returning whatever they were granted, and without an inclination to be appreciative for whatever gain they accrue from the source of that accrual, that is an act of theft and sabotage.  That is rewarding failure and punishing success.

IN CLOSING

I will leave you with this…

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;[7]

 We…solemnly publish and declare, that these colonies are and of a right ought to be free and independent states…and for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honour.”

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

STRUCTURES OF AUTHORITY

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad man.” ~Lord Acton

That is what they say but I disagree, I think corrupt men perceive power and reach for it quickly, whereas men that are not corrupt see responsibility and they reach for it slowly and after much deliberation.  While one perspective sees it as a duty and wants to protect others from himself the other perceives himself as incapable of doing anything wrong and perceives himself as always the cause of the good because he was over-coddled by his mommy.  This is why I say that the child and the mother have psychopathic brains.

It is really a tautology of the dunning-kruger effect.

It may be true that you can’t fool all the people all the time, but you can fool enough of them to rule a large country.Will Durant

The relationship between the mother and child is a vertical relationship, an up down relationship, an authoritarian relationship.  The mother is right to manipulate and lie to and spy on the child because she is doing it for his own good and is smarter than the child.  Structures of authority attract psychopaths who are natural social climbers because they feel superior to everyone else, not equal to and while they are not responsible and they never contribute more than they consume they feel that they can never do anything wrong and the concept of protecting others from themselves NEVER occurs to them.

Consider if you will the election between Gore and Bush.  Gore is a multiple genius that helped invent the internet.  His concern was for the nation and not for his legacy.

Will Durant described oligarchy as happening when a rich ruler was tired of paying for a dead beat relative so he would give him a position where he could extract a tax from the people.  The lazy ruler knowing why he had the position would not even attempt to fill the office faithfully and would take every advantage the position had to offer without making a single contribution.  Eventually, the society would collapse or revolt after it stopped creating value for its citizens and people couldn’t take it anymore.

“When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.” ― Thomas Jefferson

“You have to have a revolution every 200 years to kill off the crooked politicians.” -Thomas Jefferson

Think for a moment about what is happening in Pakistan, people are lying about their neighbors saying that  they are terrorists so the military raids and kills them.  Then some other family retaliates.  This does not serve them, it serves the authority.  It reifies and expands external authority.  This is why in EQUITY IN HUMAN RELATIONSHIP THEORY, you stay in the relationship and succeed together because failing together invites the external judgments and intervention.  Equality under reason, every person in the group and in the relationship, MUST recognize the authority of reason and participate with it or be responsible for the dissolution of the relationship.  And it is the fault of the stupider, weaker, less correct person in the relationship, the psychopath in the relationship that deserves ALL of the blame.  It is not until people learn how to recognize the psychopath and confront their behavior that the relationships and nations that were conceived in liberty will stop going to shit.

25Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 26“In your anger do not sin”d : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,27and do not give the devil a foothold. 28Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.

29Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Bohemian Dystopia: The Anne Ominous critique on the state of the nation

 

How did we get here? I look around every day and I think either I am getting smarter or everybody else is devolving. Since when does the largest group of idiots get to determine policy and what it means to be American? That is called tyranny of the majority and if we understand why our country was put together the way it was it was supposed to checkmate every form of tyranny. Tyranny is the anti-Christ of reason and wisdom from the perspective of the founding fathers but this isn’t just about ships of fools, I hate everything and everyone stupid equally….

You see we are effectively turning into a feudal society, we are already a fascist society and there are elements of communism creeping in as well, and not the positive aspects of it. The wise people are slaves and are worked to death while vile idiots enjoy the surplus of others work. How did this happen? How did we get here? and how the hell do we get back??? 

What you don’t get is that when George W. Bush was in office he passed a law that gives corporations the right of people. This effectively makes them citizens, they can defend themselves and they can endorse themselves and they can pursue their own interests. Is that a bad thing? Well, who do you think they are defending themselves from? That is correct, individuals. What this essentially means is that you have been demoted as a citizen, you are now a plebeian a non citizen by proxy, because you don’t have the man-power, the skill, the knowledge, the lawyers and the money that corporations have, but relax, it gets worse. 

Money is a symbol of value, and it is exchanged after it is decided from two different perspectives that the interaction is mutually beneficial. We have been using money so long we forget what it is. When people have ridiculous amounts of wealth it is no longer about survival it is about control and influence. In order to have a consumer society you have to have a dumb society that can be manipulated through advertising. Axe body spray is not selling cologne, they are selling sex. They conflate their product with the attention of women, young men want feminine attention so they participate with the premise and buy the product. But it incentivizes an irrational and stupid society. Wild animals are smarter than domesticated breeds, they are also dangerous. Our founding fathers wanted us to be dangerous and wild and intelligent. We have failed them.

If you look at the Jewish laws they were written with a single intent, the success of the village. Every 7 years their was a forgiving of debts that couldn’t be payed off. George W. Bush repealed a similar law that the united states had. What this means is that the rich will stay rich and the poor will stay poor and get even poorer. This moves even farther from a democracy into an oligarchy, but it does more than that, it means that if you have money, no matter how you got it, you are virtuous because you have it. Being rich is a virtue in itself now, which means that we are becoming a cleptocracy, the opposite of a meritocracy. Furthermore this prevents wealthy families from losing their positions of prestige and having to compete with other technologies and skills on a level playing field. It was because of fear of not being able to compete and not being able to regain their wealth and stature that provoked this law. 

Right to rule is determined by whether your government contributes to the quality of your life or not. If your life is the same as it would be if there were no government then that government does not have the right to rule. Now, if your government is based on capitalism and nobody has jobs or money, your government does not have the right to rule. Here is another interesting little tid bit. The jobs that we do have are government jobs. If you have a government job it is like you won the lottery, you are comparatively rich. How the fuck did that happen? How is it that civil SERVANTS, are getting paid more than the average American when their job is to make life better for the rest of Americans? There is no fucking way, they should be living high on the hog when they are failing at their job. 

Every major world civilization has had one thing in common, a large middle class…. I really shouldn’t have to write the rest of this paragraph, what I just said should be enough. Jewish laws were created to maintain equity in the population. A huge disparity in wealth dispersion means there is no middle class. In the parts of northern Europe that are successfully using a type of socialism there is a wage cap. No one can earn more than so many times the minimum wage. The hidden subject is that it prevents people from hijacking the society because they possess all of the wealth. People react with horror at that concept, but money is an external incentive, there are other types of incentives, internal incentives for example. We have gotten so indoctrinated into external incentives that we don’t do anything without money, or for any other reason than money. Moral courage, righteous indignation, the world we want to live in, just some examples of internal incentives….

Think of how much of your life is spent at work. You spend all of your best energy slaving away for a corporation and you have what is left over for your friends and family and interests, assuming of course that you actually have a job. You are a slave. Not in letter but in spirit. Your every thought, action, and emotion is manipulated by the people with the money, you only think that you are in control of your own destiny and that you have options, and that is because you were manipulated into thinking that. There are two types of freedom, freedom from and freedom too. Freedom from is a feminine freedom, it prevents relationship. It removes individuals from natural consequences, this is the freedom the mother provides for the child protecting it from nature, understanding of truths that are unpleasant, and keeping it from relationships that are undesired. This is an authoritative freedom that is provided by a superior to a subordinate, it requires that the child participate and stay in its box, remaining docile and dumb. Structures of authority give us received knowledge, they do our thinking for us, and they extract their authority from us in order to do it. It makes certain presuppositions, that the mother knows enough to protect the child, that the mother knows what is good for the child, and that the child can be happy being provided for. But this model weakens society by making it stupid, complacent, and domesticated. Pleasant, but douchey and incorrect.

 
 Furthermore, if you examine the mind of the psychopath, as I have, you realize that they are notorious social climbers, and they climb through structures of authority. It is said that “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” but in my experience that is not true. A corrupt able person sees power where an incorruptible person sees responsibility, power can only be abused and the psychopath is attracted to it like a moth to a flame and like a fly to a piece of shit for the purpose of abusing that power. The incorruptible person reaches for responsibility slower than the psychopath reaches for power.
 
How is it that child molesters keep getting jobs where they can molest children and thieves keep getting jobs in banks and in the stock market and politics where they are allowed to regulate themselves? I have done some introspection on this subject. I have come to the conclusion that psychopaths are over-coddled children that learned how to manipulate their mothers. How do they do this? by communicating harmlessness and agreement to them, the mother does not promote foreign wills, (the father) she thinks only of feminine authority, (the child and the mother). She makes superficial, aesthetic, judgments, not judgments based on results or understanding or insight or experience. She wants smoke to be blown up her ass. She wants to be shmoozed. The psychopath wants the authority to be in tact so that he will have as much power as possible when he possesses the power so he will always argue for power even if it is against his wishes and everybody else’s. Because the child was over coddled by the mother, protected from reality, he has this feeling that he is better than others, innately superior, and incapable of doing wrong. Everything that he does is good because he is the one doing it. So some magical force makes all of his self interested strategic behavior harmless for the world and beneficent for himself. This happens on a subconscious level because being raised in a bubble that is all he experienced. Thank you mom.
 
 We live in the most feminine country in the world and no matter what happens women never take responsibility for the course of events. There is no hostile internal dialogue between American women and I do not trust any group of people that do not have a strong, open, internal dialogue. I don’t trust, Muslims, Mexicans, bankers, the stock market, I am sure there are others but I can’t remember who they are. . . .These lobbying organizations have spent decades silencing the masculine voice to the point where we are becoming a 3rd world country. We are too weak and stupid and dishonest to compete with the world anymore. Women presuppose the surplus created by men and their participation as well while not taking into account their desires, perspective, and happiness. Women are ruining our country just like they did ancient Rome.
 
 In order to unleash the highest common good, every person needs to be highly and equally educated. In Sparta, the person that was standing next to you in the phalanx, owned the farm next to you, and was voting against you on the same law in the senate. Our country was conceived with such men. That was when we were great. We are not allowed to be great like that anymore. Those men pooled their knowledge and wisdom, shared best processes, studied history, philosophy, learned about nature and how to succeed. When society is specialized, which happens in order to create profit, every person has a fractured, partial understanding, their language of experience doesn’t allow them to communicate understand or agree with the other person. the guy that puts the face on the cell phone doesn’t understand the guy that does the oil change. Just like in northern Europe and Israel, it should be mandatory for every person to spend two years in the military defending the country, because it is every Americans responsibility. Politicians would be less likely to send other peoples children to sacrifice themselves to fill their own wallets. On upon the end of their stint, they should be given a military rifle to put in their home. Don’t forget we are a nation, “of the people, by the people, and for the people”. Not of the corporations, by the people, and for the profit.
One of the tenets of communism was From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs “Jeder nach seinen Fähigkeiten, jedem nach seinen Bedürfnissen!” what this does is create a disparate impact in favor of those not capable of getting results in the real world. The capable work for the incapable, the philosopher kings work for the greedy children, and bitter widow. It creates a counter incentive for success. We are not free to, we are free from. Similarly, big business, the way we are practicing it, takes money out of the Oikos, the economy, and that money goes somewhere else. We are not keeping our money in our house. We are letting these corporate fiefdom harvest the fruit from our labor and dictate where it should go.
 
There are certain methods for increasing perceived value for the sake of extracting more profit. You can do more work, do it faster, lower the price, do it better, offer more support, more services, new technology, but the problem is that unlike ancient Sparta the person extracting the profit is not the person doing the work. The person extracting the work was promoted because he doesn’t harsh the buzz of his superior and because of a lack of sympathy for the person creating all the value making all the sacrifice. So this corporate douche bag, a glorified whip cracker, says, “DO THE JOB BETTER, FASTER, PAY MORE ATTENTION, BE NICE TO THE CUSTOMER, THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT, YOU NEED TO TAKE A PAY CUT!” and if you participate, that person turns around and puts down on his resume how successful he was and he gets a promotion and moves higher in the company so he can show less sympathy to more people and extract even more profit and have even less understanding.
 
I will leave you with a few quotes I have always found poignant:
 
 
 
 
 

I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country. Thomas Jefferson 

 
 

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.Thomas Jefferson 

 
 
 
 
Assuming that enough has been already said in discussions outside the school concerning the best life, we will now only repeat what is contained in them. Certainly no one will dispute the propriety of that partition of goods which separates them into three classes, viz., external goods, goods of the body, and goods of the soul, or deny that the happy man must have all three. For no one would maintain that he is happy who has not in him a particle of courage or temperance or justice or prudence, who is afraid of every insect which flutters past him, and will commit any crime, however great, in order to gratify his lust of meat or drink, whowill sacrifice his dearest friend for the sake of half-a-farthing, and is as feeble and false in mind as a child or a madman.
~ Aristotle
 
Now it is evident that the form of government is best in which every man, whoever he is, can act best and live happily. But even those who agree in thinking that the life of virtue is the most eligible raise a question, whether the life of business and politics is or is not moreeligible than one which is wholly independent of external goods, I mean than a contemplative life, which by some is maintained to be the only one worthy of a philosopher. For these two lives- the life of the philosopher and the life of the statesman- appear to have been preferred by those who have been most keen in the pursuit of virtue, both in our own and in other ages. Which is the better is a question of no small moment; for the wise man, like the wise state, will necessarily regulate his life according to the best end.
~ Aristotle
 
Those who make themselves a market for the world only do so for the sake of revenue, and if a state ought not to desire profit of this kind it ought not to have such an emporium. Nowadays we often see in countries and cities dockyards and harbors very conveniently placed outside the city, but not too far off; and they are kept in dependence by walls and similar fortifications. Cities thus situated manifestly reap the benefit of intercourse with their ports; and any harm which is likely to accrue may be easily guarded against by the laws, which will pronounce and determine who may hold communication with one another, and who may not.
~Aristotle
 
These are the services which every state may be said to need. For a state is not a mere aggregate of persons, but a union of them sufficing for the purposes of life; and if any of these things be wanting, it is as we maintain impossible that the community can be absolutely self-sufficing. A state then should be framed with a view to the fulfillment of these functions. There must be husbandmen to procure food, and artisans, and a warlike and a wealthy class, and priests, and judges to decide what is necessary and expedient.
~Aristotle
 
Now the soul of man is divided into two parts, one of which has a rational principle in itself, and the other, not having a rational principle in itself, is able to obey such a principle. And we call a man in any way good because he has the virtues of these two parts. In which of them the end is more likely to be found is no matter of doubt to those who adopt our division; for in the world both of nature and of art the inferior always exists for the sake of the better or superior, and the better or superior is that which has a rational principle.
~Aristotle
 
And the preference given to one or the other class of actions must necessarily be like the preference given to one or other part of the soul and its actions over the other; there must be war for the sake of peace, business for the sake of leisure, things useful and necessary for the sake of things honorable. All these points the statesman should keep in view when he frames his laws; he should consider the parts of the soul and their functions, and above all the better and the end; he should also remember the diversities of human lives and actions. For men must be able to engage in business and go to war, but leisure and peace are better; they must do what is necessary and indeed what is useful, but what is honorable is better. On such principles children and persons of every age which requires education should be trained. Whereas even the Hellenes of the present day who are reputed to be best governed, and the legislators who gave them their constitutions, do not appear to have framed their governments with a regard to the best end, or to have given them laws and education with a view to all the virtues, but in a vulgar spirit have fallen back on those which promised to be more useful and profitable.
~Aristotle
 
Neither should men study war with a view to the enslavement of those who do not deserve to be enslaved; but first of all they should provide against their own enslavement, and in the second place obtain empire for the good of the governed, and not for the sake of exercising a general despotism, and in the third place they should seek to be masters only over those who deserve to be slaves. Facts, as well as arguments, prove that the legislator should direct all his military and other measures to the provision of leisure and the establishment of peace. For most of these military states are safe only while they are at war, but fall when they have acquired their empire; like unused iron they lose their temper in time of peace. And for this the legislator is to blame, he never having taught them how to lead the life of peace.
~Aristotle
