Reading the First 3 Pages of “The Green Book”
“The problem of the instrument of government entails questions of the following kind. What form should the exercise of authority assume? How ought societies to organize themselves politically in the modern world?”
Why must societies organize themselves differently in the modern world than we have for the last few thousand years? This idea that the way we run civilization must constantly change as we “evolve” has led to some of the worst ideas in history: communism, fascism, democracy, socialism, liberalism… etc. Monarchy has been around for thousands of years, it’s tried and true, there’s no reason to bet the whole of civilization on some stupid newfangled trend just because you thought it sounded good in an essay you wrote during your “experimental” phase.
“Even conflict within the family is often the result of the failure to resolve this problem of authority.”
Yeah, conflict within the family is the result of authority not being established or respected by disobedient rebellious children following the same immature mentality that has lead to every revolution since the storming of the bastille. Kids can’t raise themselves.
“All political systems in the world today are a product of the struggle for power between alternative instruments of government.”
Once we decided we’d “come of age” (Nietzsche) and “grown out” of monarchy we were left without any kind of standard. We’ve been forced to make it up as we go along. The story of liberalism is the story of a 12 year old running away from home and trying to figure out how to feed himself without any real knowledge of the outside world.
“The outcome is always the victory of a particular governing structure — be it that of an individual, group, party or class — and the defeat of the people; the defeat of genuine democracy.”
Any society with a “genuine democracy” would collapse overnight. People will only vote in their interests with no regard for the interests of the civilization as a whole. They’ll vote for all the free money they can get and go bankrupt. Allowing 18 year old high-school drop outs to have as much political power as a 60 year-old Phd is stupid.
“Political struggle that results in the victory of a candidate with, for example, 51 per cent of the votes leads to a dictatorial governing body in the guise of a false democracy, since 49 per cent of the electorate is ruled by an instrument of government they did not vote for, but which has been imposed upon them. Such is dictatorship”
And how’s your stupid new-democracy going to work? If you let everyone decide their own government, you’re gonna get rape-town:
“Such is dictatorship”
Oh no, not dictatorship [sarcastic]. Since we’ve lost any actual definition of “dictatorship”, it’s a word you can apply to pretty much any political system to scare people away from it. Not me though, american-style democracy is obviously not a dictatorship. Just because you can’t do whatever you want doesn’t mean you’re living under a dictatorship, that’s the reasoning of a child (or Jean-Jacques Rousseau). People want to do stupid and evil things and they should be prevented from doing those things for the benefit of civilization. If you can tweet every dumb idea that pops into your head from your ipad you’re not oppressed, get over it. There’s nothing wrong with dictatorship, human beings have been living under dictatorships for thousands of years and they were fine.
“Besides, this political conflict may produce a governing body that represents only a minority.”
I don’t know if you’re old enough to have discovered this yet, but the majority of people are retarded. Having a governing body that represents a minority is the only way to run civilization successfully.
“Parliaments have been a legal barrier between the people and the exercise of authority, excluding the masses from meaningful politics”
The masses should not be participating in meaningful politics. An 18 year old high school drop out should not have any say in how an entire country is run, that’s retarded.
“It has thus become the right of the people to struggle, through popular revolution, to destroy such instruments”
No it hasn’t. Why would they have this right? What have they done to earn it? You can’t just claim anything is a right just because it sounds good in your head. This massive liberal entitlement complex (the whole concept of a “right” is entitlement) is the reason you feel like things are so bad, you feel like you deserve everything you want (you don’t) so when you don’t get it you feel miserable. Human beings are not treated like cattle unfairly, human beings are cattle. This is why any sane society would put a bolt through the heads of people who come up with these dumb civilization-destroying ideas. Quit being such an entitled prick and try to humble yourself just a little bit.
“Thus it is clear that representation is a fraud.”
You don’t deserve representation, you shouldn’t be represented. Your dumb civilization destroying ideas should not be let anywhere near a government. Not everyone who exists is worth representing. Quit being so entitled to everything you left-wing parasite. Democracy, rights and representation have become the liberal sacred cows and they need to be slaughtered. This entitled mentality of perpetual victimhood (you’re not oppressed) needs to go.
“A time when peoples were unconsciously herded like sheep by kings, sultans and conquerors”
Ah yes, the good old days…
“When even this aspiration was rejected, people waged bitter and protracted struggle to attain this goal.”
Why did it take until the french revolution for this aspiration to show up? Could it be that people can survive and get along without this aspiration and that your aspirations stem from an unwarranted sense of entitlement?
“Authority must be in the hands of all of the people.”
WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU THINK THAT? MOST PEOPLE ARE DUMB, THEY DON’T NEED TO HAVE AUTHORITY STOP TELLING PEOPLE THIS YOU’RE NOT ENTITLED TO HAVING AUTHORITY. GET OVER THIS ENTITLEMENT COMPLEX BEFORE YOU DESTROY CIVILIZATION.
“To do so, the opposition must minimize the government’s achievements and cast doubt on its plans, even though those plans may be beneficial to the society. Consequently, the interests and programs of the society become the victims of the parties’ struggle for power.”
Thank you, liberalism, for making us all feel like oppressed victims during the most prosperous time in human history
