Ron, have you ever seen
buzzards fighting over rotted corpses? The police mentality across the
nation has long been the dominant vulture. When they steal something from
a citizen they do not want to turn it loose. It's not about any war on
drugs. It's about money. There is somebody (or somebody's) in the
loop raking off the cash and they simply don't want to relinquish the
perk. I'm happy to see other vultures recognizing the obvious conflict of
interest that exists where the robber gets to keep the money if he can figure
out a good reason for the robbery. ... Basically, cops want to retain
the turf on particular kinds of robbery and thievery that they commit. I
have known plenty of people who cops have robbed, who had nothing to do with
I am elated to see the world
catching up with me, Ron. That old widespread blind faith in all
government functions is fast disappearing from the public perceptions.
People everywhere are beginning to wake up. Isn't it sweet? Some
time ago I perceived a new order overtaking humanity in general (not connected
with the "New World Order" that simply represents the age-old grabbing for
power.) The order I perceived is a natural outgrowth, or consequence, of
man's general continuing quest for perfection. I discovered it during the
late 70's and early 80's. I realized that democracy was dead, or at best
remained little more than a vestige. I traced it back farther than my
perception of it, of course, but there is not room here to go into the whole
thing. By the time I perceived democracy's demise, the concept of
democracy had already been supplanted by what I labeled the "Ideocracy."
My life was wrought by the Ideocracy. The Internet may be its brain.
You are a shining example of Ideocracy in action.
Ideocracy equates with
government by ideal. In the early days of the democracy, precursor to the
ideocracy, people trusted heads of this or that to tell them how to vote, for
example. Everybody trusted government implicitly. All policemen were
wonderful helpmeets who always did everything perfect, right and just. All
judges were sacred quantities because the position was a sacred quantity.
In the Ideocracy, everybody
seeks the ideal, and is not satisfied with only believing in the position.
When a man of position is discovered to be corrupt, the position no longer
shields him. He must stand beside the ideal and be judged now, not
the position. Ain't it sweet?
In a democracy, the position
is paramount, not the man. In the ideocracy, this is reversed. It is
the man, not the position, that must stand beside the ideal. This is why
so much corruption is being exposed in all the "high places." I thought I
would never see California exposed, as that bunch has corruption sewed pretty
tightly. It is so tight that most people in California only three or so
years ago believed that it was impossible to bribe a California official.
The person who gets into the position thinks himself to be in the old system and
it is just business as usual. The whole thing is, he is not in the old
system--he's in the new. The revolution has come and we are all in its
