The Absurdity of Constitutionalism (from a civilian perspective)Submitted by OctoBox on Thu, 02/25/2010 - 14:49
I agree 100% with RP on the Constitution when it comes to Congress, the President, and the Judicial.
----Meaning they swore and oath and should stick to it.
However "for us" (the civilians) it is ludicrous, on the order of belief in the toothfairy, to believe that "men" (let alone women) will keep their word if it benefits them (as individuals) to break it.
It's kindergarten/sunday school type thinking.
"Well 'they' gave their word, so now I will abdicate all my self-rule over to them, so that way they can give it back to me."
We would never go to a swap meet and pay someone for a product we couldn't take with us -- not even $10.
Why would we sign over our purchasing power to a system (forget individual politicians) that has proven 100% of the time to produce a predominance of snake-in-the-grass cut-throat leaders.
[Insert Einstein's Definition of Insanity and pass me a "yard sign"]
Corporatism uses the "ballot box" to destroy your purchasing power; all politicians who destroy said purchasing power get their power by-way of election and lobbying capital -- So! How can you eliminate corporatism using a corporatist system?
You can't eliminate free-market consumer-sovereignty by practicing free-market consumer-sovereignty -- you must get people to abdicate their free-will over to the snake oil salesmen and then you destroy that market. We know this last paragraph as FACT (it's simple logic).
Yet, when we approach the destruction of corporatism we look for corporatist tools to destroy it.
