The Sick Man of the planet is Government

July 23, 2017 (Windy Hill Beach, South Carolina) — The Declaration of Independence pointed out some “self-evident Truths” with which I whole-heart-and-mindedly agree. Today, I’d add another self-evident Truth: Government has gotten way too big. This isn’t just a US phenomena. Check out the “Hell in a coconut shell” warning out of St. Lucia:

Just as the historical serfs subsisted under a concordat between churchman and king, so too the modern citizen subsists under a concordat between global corporations, which possess immense media finesse and technical savvy, and the Sick Man himself, Government.

… The Sick Man of the planet is Government. Governments have become too large, expensive, bungling, bureaucratic and lack the managerial and technical wherewithal to solve basic problems; in health, education, security, food, transport, communications; and water and energy capture. Many are constantly building military forces for making war. Some tax the lifeblood of the people. Many have become appendages of global corporations and military and drug bureaus; they are not the masters, they are the serfs. Many of them have lost touch with their peoples. Many become bedevilled by partisan frenzy and chaos.

… Our Governments, who often want to empower us, boasting of such, have become disempowered; and are busily, as if life depended on it, disempowering the people. If the peoples of the planets go on following, relying on governments to save them, wily-nily, they and the planet will end up in hell in a coconut shell.
