The new kid on the block has the muscle power, the organizational power, the financial power and the legal power to get what he wants, he also has the propaganda power to persuade the people of his point of view.
And it is absolutely clear that this new kid has been using this enormous power to serve himself.
Just take a look at how western governments have grown over the past 100 years – or even over the past 10 years. Look at the ever-increasing tax take. Look at the ever-increasing numbers of people employed by government. Look at the thousands upon thousands of laws, regulations, restrictions and directives that are annually being imposed by western governments on their own peoples.
These governments just grows and grows and grows – not only in terms of size, but also in terms of power and wealth. And they are infiltrating themselves into every aspect of people’s lives; controlling, monitoring, regulating, directing, stipulating, coercing – always to an ever-greater extent.
But who can stop them?
There is no question in my own mind that many of the people at the top of government and at the top of government departments are malicious – coldly, callously malicious. And they often know full well that what they are doing is harming their own people. But this is of no real significance to them. In other words, they do not care. Their only concern is to serve themselves in some way.
