CENTRALIZED POWER: THE TYRANT’S AGENDA
By Timothy N. Baldwin, JD.

The goal of tyrants has always been to centralize power unto themselves. Alexander Hamilton admits this much: “This tendency is not difficult to be accounted for. It has its origin in the love of power.” While nation and empire building inevitably lead to destruction and breakup of the political structure, tyrants always believe themselves to be the exception to the rule, not to mention the exception to God’s rule. Thus, as they begin losing control, their grip becomes all the more tighter and firmer. In the process, millions of lives are slavishly destroyed.
I expounded in my book, Freedom For A Change, tyranny’s agenda as expressed by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR): “We shall have world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or consent.” (Consider how many in the federal government are members of and connected to the CFR.) Truth is, America’s part in the globalist agenda has been well-seated for generations. Its main success has been through centralizing power–power taken from the sovereignty of individuals, bodies-politic and their State governments–along with the help of those who foolishly believe: “…but after all, they are the ‘Supreme Law of the Land’.”
As the Bible shows, a sign of a corrupted political system is one that seeks to gather nations (i.e. states) unto itself: “A proud man…is not content. He widens his soul like Sheol, and he is like death, and is not satisfied, but GATHERS ALL NATIONS TO HIMSELF, AND HEAPS TO HIMSELF ALL THE PEOPLES.” Once nations are gathered, they are kept under the dominion of the system by force and claim of right. The formula for slavery, corruption and oppression is the same today as it was yesterday: concentration and centralization of power. Thus, decentralization and separation becomes tools of freemen.
