Image: The BIG LIE upon which all government is founded

(Natural News) Every government in the world today is founded on a “big lie” that you’re about to see explained below. This is true regardless of party affiliation, nationality or era in which the government operates. All governments — past, present and future — are founded on this “big lie,” without exception.

What is this BIG LIE? It’s the idea that those who are in power will represent the interests of others who have no power.

This “big lie” fantasizes that selfish, power-seeking, egoistic human beings are magically transmuted into humble, compassionate, ethical “representatives” the minute they win an election. We are to believe that all their hunger for power instantly vanishes at the moment they win, replaced by God-like universal love for all the people, even at the expense of their own careers or personal wealth accumulation.

Somehow, we are led to believe, those who win elections are “serving their nation,” not leveraging power for their own selfish aims. Politicians even use this language themselves, claiming they are running for office in the hopes of “serving their country” but never serving their own insatiable appetite for power. Bureaucrats, as a rule of thumb, don’t serve their nations… they exploit national power to serve their own self interests.

Those who seek power almost always covet it for themselves

The very idea that people in power can be representatives of those who are powerless is absurd on its face. Has any religion, race, nationality or philosophical belief ever been discovered on this planet that describes a group of people who do not make decisions in their own self interest? You might say that certain religious organizations or non-profits are engaged in such selfless behavior, and you’d be right in a few isolated cases. But for the vast majority of organizations — including most non-profits — their aim is to increase their own size, power and influence.


That same philosophy pervades the halls of every national capitol in the world, where the claim of “serving the people” is usually nothing more than a deceptive sales pitch to get elected so that real power can be wielded against those whom you claim to represent. Even the most corrupt government regimes in the world claim to represent the interests of the common people, by the way: North Korea’s official name is (laughably) the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Yet the power structure in North Korea isn’t democratic, it doesn’t represent the People, it isn’t a Republic and it isn’t even the greater Korea. (South Korea has a more legitimate claim to greater Korea than does the North.)

Similarly, the U.S. House of Representatives is also jokingly named in a way that claims to “represent” the interests of the people. Yet in reality, nearly all members of the House — with a few notable exceptions — are little more than legislative prostitutes for corporate interests (pharma, biotech, weapons, etc.). Even the so-called “Freedom Caucus” of conservative / libertarian lawmakers is heavily infested by Big Pharma sellouts and Monsanto poison pushers who think “freedom” means no regulation of toxic pesticides.

Very few exceptions have ever been observed in government

In truth, there is no such thing as any government composed of human beings who will voluntarily ignore their own self interests in order to truly “serve” the people. No such government organization exists anywhere in the world. Even in the United States, every government agency (DHS, State Dept., FDA, HHS, EPA, CDC, DEA, USDA, FTC, etc.) exists primarily to expand its own power and influence no matter what the repercussions on the people.

From time to time, there are notable individuals who stand as exceptions to this rule. Ron Paul is perhaps the best example in recent memory. Principled and immune to arm twisting, Ron Paul spent his entire career voting for the interests of the people he represented in the State of Texas.

Some might argue that even Donald Trump shows promise for rejecting the corruption typically pursued by former presidents. As a highly successful businessman with vast monetary wealth, Trump has no interest in gaining money from his political power, and he’s old enough to be focused on leaving behind a legacy rather than trying to climb the ladder of political power.

Has big government approached a tipping point of irrelevancy?

All this brings up a salient question: Is big government rapidly proving itself to be irrelevant in a society that’s so electronically connected that people don’t need “representatives” in Washington D.C. anymore to make their decisions for them?

Consider these radical ideas for structural reforms of society that could eliminate much of the corruption that infests government today:

Radical Reform #1) Taxpayers get to choose where their dollars go

What if taxpayers could choose to distribute their tax dollars to the programs they wish to support? Instead of allowing corrupt bureaucrats in Washington to decide where the money goes, why not allow each taxpayer to choose, if they wish, how their tax dollars are distributed across government programs? It would sure make paying taxes a whole lot more fun if you get to direct the funding to the programs you want funded.

Radical Reform #2) Enact a lifelong ban that halts government regulators from ever working for private industry

In several European countries, government employees who work inside regulatory agencies such as the EPA and FDA are banned for life from working for the industries they regulate. This eliminates the “revolving door” of corruption that has caused regulators to become “captive agencies” dominated by corporate interests.

Radical Reform #3) The Instant Runoff Voting system (IRV)

To break the two-party monopoly, an honest and fair voting system needs to be enacted that allows people to vote for the candidate they really want, without “wasting” their vote. Such a system already exists, by the way, and it’s called the Instant Runoff Voting system (IRV). Instead of just choosing one candidate when you vote, you rank the candidates in order of your preference: 1, 2, 3, etc. If one candidate receives over 50% of the vote, they’re the instant winner. If nobody receives 50%, the candidate with the LEAST votes is eliminated, and all those who voted for that person as their #1 choice are now reverted to their #2 choice and the votes are tallied again. This continues until one candidate receives over 50% of the vote. It’s a simple, brilliant, fair and democratic voting system. And it means you can always vote you conscience without wasting any vote.

Radical Reform #4) Enact Term Limits (once and for all)

U.S. Senator John McCain is the poster child for exactly why we need term limits. Functioning as nothing more than a decrepit parasite on the system, corrupt like McCain are so completely out of touch with the reality of everyday Americans that they are wholly incompetent and incapable of making decisions in the interests of the people they claim to represent. The only real way to get rid of these parasites is to put hard term limits into law. Limit members of the House to 3 terms, and Senators to 2 terms. There’s no better way to keep draining the swamp, year after year, as the stench of corruption infiltrates the halls of Washington.

Radical Reform #5) Eliminate representatives in Washington DC altogether?

What if we eliminated the entire U.S. Congress and allowed the American people to vote directly on proposed new laws? While it might sound interesting at first, this idea could also be extremely dangerous, by the way, because uninformed masses are very easy for the fake news media (CNN, NYT, etc.) to control and brainwash, so you’d have to put in place some sort of basic IQ test or reading comprehension test so that only those who can think rationally would be allowed to vote.

That’s why this idea will never fly, by the way, because it would eliminate too many left-leaning voters who are functionally illiterate. The state of New York recently eliminated a literacy test for teachers because too many minority teachers couldn’t pass it. Yes, the state of New York believes that functional literacy is no longer a requirement for teachers who instruct minority students. That’s how insane society has become under the “leadership” of incompetent government.

I say it’s time for more self-rule. Thank goodness President Trump is taking the first steps to slashing the size and power of government. But it’s not nearly enough. The real “reset” will only come with the next great financial collapse that will obliterate centralized power in Washington and possibly even cause the breakup of the United States of America as we know it today. When that day comes, it’s up to all of us to build a new society rooted in liberty and individual freedom rather than Big Government incompetence and tyranny.
