Conspiracy Theories, Tin-Foil Hats, and Nuts!

I am often criticized for being a conspiracy nut when I say that the USA is no longer a self-governing republic but instead an oligarchic fascism ruled by elites made up of, and controlling, government, business, the media, and academia.

The thing is this isn’t really a conspiracy in the traditional sense of the definition.

It is simply the natural result of the central government growing too large, and the Constitutional checks and balances becoming ineffective; obsolete. Let me explain what I mean.

We are not “ruled” by an iron willed cabal of co-conspirators so much as by a collection of elite special interests that are quite happy with the status quo. Big Business likes being able to use the government to erect obstacles against smaller nimbler competitors. They also like being able to collude with the political parties to extract government contracts and benefits. Bureaucrats and politicians are happy to be able to extract extortion money from Big Business, Unions, and other special interests to line their pockets. The Media and Academia do their job of acting as a holy priesthood selling the masses on the “justice” of the system. All these “elites” are potential mini-dictators in competition to control the system, not a uniform monolithic conspiracy directing every aspect of the system. They cooperate when it suits their interests, and compete with each other to obtain added power and benefits when that is more advantageous for them. What is missing is the Constitutional limitations that used to deprive the ruling elites of access to the power and authority of a dominant central government, and also a people willing to defend their freedoms and liberties from these opportunistic elites.

This process is as natural as a river changing its course over time.

The Late Roman Republic showed these same traits. Corruption, conspiracies, coups, fraud, financial mismanagement, foreign adventurism, etc. Eventually the Republic collapsed. What is happening in America is not the result of some grand confederacy of dunces joining together to bring down the country, but a wholly natural evolution of what happens when the central government becomes too large, the people become too soft, and the infrastructure of ‘democracy’ becomes wholly corrupted.

In the absence of some great event or some great leader nothing will change. Wishful thinking is not a substitute for rational thought.

About fafc

The goal of the “Find a Free Country Project” is to research, explore and find a safe and secure free country outside the USA, that is not too large, has a relatively open immigration policy, has a friendly business climate, has a non-intrusive government committed to freedom, and then move to it.

    I mostly agree with what you wrote, but I would also like to add something to the list of causes (the main one in my opinion), namely bad immigration policy, until well into the 20th century, all that was needed to immigrate to the USA was to be racially Caucasian and not to (visibly) carry a contagious disease, there was no vetting done for values (the values on which the USA was founded on were Anglo-Saxon values, which too many later immigrants didn’t really share) so between the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century millions upon millions of leftists from Ireland, the Russian Empire, Italy, Germany, etc. immigrated to the USA and started unions, organized crime societies (like the mafia), infiltrating the universities, etc., and were also instrumental in the 1960’s immigration reforms which shifted the focus from immigration from Europe to immigration from Latin America, which has obviously made matters worse, also lets not forget that some of the immigrants had open hatred for White Anglo-Saxon Protestants and their society and wanted to “hit them where it hurt”, I mean even in today’s pro-multicultural, pro-gay, etc. Ireland it is socially acceptable to hate the English, now imagine what the situation was 100+ years ago.

      Well you will note that I didn’t dive too much into the “why”, but rather the “what”. The “why” could fill libraries. My big problem is the “what”. Too many so-called conservative Americans won’t even acknowledge that the USA has changed dramatically for the worse. They are in delusion thinking that all they have to do is go vote for one politician or another and that everything will magically work out. It is what I have been fighting against from the very beginning of this project, and I have been losing. I suppose lost is a more accurate conclusion. But I tried
