Our governing class no longer has the consent of the governed,


The fundamental premise of the United States is that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed.
Our governing class no longer has the consent of the governed, and many of them are shocked when you point that out. The protected – the governing class – pretty well consents. Why would anyone object? The intentions are good. And in fact it is so: they have good intent. They are well-wishing with a vengeance.... The Protected and the Unprotected are not quite the same as the Enlightened and the Benighted, but the Enlightened, who know what’s best for everyone, have gained more power among the Protected and are using it. As I have been saying for two decades, we sow the wind. Now comes the reaping. Unprotected and Benighted – Chaos Manor – Jerry Pournelle

Your Say

Never had my consent in the first place and I reject the very notion that I am governed.

I'm a realist, maybe one of the last, I see things as they are rather than as I wish.

There is no governing going on, it is delusionist to believe so.

There is instead a vast network of multi-layered criminals running loose calling themselves everything under the sun.

Put on your thinking cap and figure out ways to keep them as far away as possible, you may have to go to extremes.

No good can come from any association at all with criminals.
