Independence Criminalized: The Great Wall of Bureaucracy Comes to America
November 10, 2010
If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny. — Thomas Jefferson
The purge of the farming class in various Communist dictatorships is well documented. The regimes in China (1958-62) and Russia into the Ukraine (1920-39), identified those who were independent of state control, and implemented a heavy-handed oppression designed to turn true productivity toward collectivist goals. These regimes are but a version of what is being proposed in modern America.
Today’s elite seem to have learned from the messy approach of Mao, for instance (the boot in the face of 1984), and have opted for a similar eradication campaign, but they are doing so largely through excessive regulations coordinated between private companies and government. These policies and regulations are handed down by political and corporate leadership, and have become de facto laws enforced by compromised judges. This forms the foundation of classical bureaucracy.
