Something Wicked This Way Comes: Anarchy Is Being Loosed Upon the Nation, by John W. Whitehead

Is anarchy coming? From John W. Whitehead at rutherford.org:

“Every day I ask myself the same question: How can this be happening in America? How can people like these be in charge of our country? If I didn’t see it with my own eyes, I’d think I was having a hallucination.”—Philip Roth, novelist

Things are falling apart.

  1. I would argue that you cannot have Governance of any form UNLESS that Governing body is ‘superior’ to those whom it governs.

    So, it’s futile to argue that you ‘the people’ can somehow be both ‘Governed’ AND the masters of that Government. Beyond futility, really, and into the realm of idiocy.
