This is a repost from early 2018:

{Note: This is for all of you willfully ignorant and insouciant sheep who just can’t live without this completely insane and out of control police/nanny state. This is the same completely insane and out of control police/nanny state that, for over 240 years now, has been falsely claiming to serve and protect you and your ancestors from all the marsh-gas monsters IT has continually created (‘terrorists’, ‘pandemics’, ‘rogue governments’, wars upon wars, etc, etc, ad-nauseum), in order to keep you in this pathetic state of mere existence: a bleating flock of sheep, mindlessly grazing, waiting for the inevitable and final journey to the slaughterhouse, which your Anglo-Zionist masters have prepared for you and most of the rest of humanity! You will, sheep to the slaughter, sooner or later, get what you have coming to you, what you so richly deserve: The wolf that ate Wall Street: US economy roars amid rising income inequality & NATO’s attack on Kaliningrad could prompt Russia’s nuclear strike}

Where other men have skimmed the surface, Beard has gone through to the core. He stayed months in Washington to get to the core. In his search for ancient papers and documents in the Treasury Department, he went into vaults that were so filled with dust that it was necessary to excavate the papers with a vacuum cleaner. But when he came back to the surface he had damning evidence against a good many of the “patriot fathers.” He then knew why they were so anxious, not only for a new constitution, but for the particular kind of a constitution that was afterward adopted – Allan L. Benson (The Dishonest Constitution)

The Constitution Con

“Conspiracy!” One of the darkest words in the language of man. Yet there is hardly a single page of History that does not partially reveal the deadly eye of Conspiracy at work. It was a conspiracy that lead Brutus against Caesar in the Roman senate on the Ides of March…that plotted the betrayal of West Point by Benedict Arnold, during the American Revolution…that led John Wilkes Booth to the assassination of President Lincoln on Good Friday 1865. The past record of man is burdened with accounts of assassinations, secret combines, palace plots and betrayals in war. But in spite of this clear record, an amazing number of people have begun to scoff at the possibility of conspiracy at work today. They dismiss such an idea merely as a conspiratorial view – G. Edward Griffin (The Capitalist Conspiracy)

The Constitution Con

Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that numbers of people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem – Howard Zinn

Father of the Anarchist movement, Mikhail Bakunin – who spent many years imprisoned in dungeons – knew all about government oppression. For him governments were unnecessary institutions that darkened the world:

The liberty of man consists solely in this, that he obeys the laws of nature, because he has himself recognized them as such, and not because they have been imposed upon him externally by any foreign will whatsoever, human or divine, collective or individual – (God and the State, 1882)

The Constitution Con

German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche understood why governments exist, and how they maintain their malignant dominion:

…a fullness of state power such as only despotism had enjoyed…surpassed all the past because it strove for the formal annihilation of the individual…Once the earth is brought under all-embracing economic control, then mankind will find it has been reduced to machinery in its service, as a monstrous clockwork system of ever smaller, more finely adjusted wheels.

The Constitution Con

French philosopher Pierre Joseph Proudhon addressed the “people versus government” problem:

To be Governed is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so. To be Governed is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored. That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality – (General Idea of the Revolution in the Nineteenth Century)

The Constitution Con

Philosopher Ayn Rand frequently warned readers about the evils of big government:

Instead of being a protector of man’s rights, the government is becoming their most dangerous violator; instead of guarding freedom the government is establishing slavery; instead of protecting men from the initiators of physical force, the government is initiating physical force and coercion in any manner and issue it pleases; instead of serving as the instrument of objectivity in human relationships, the government is creating a deadly subterranean reign of uncertainty and fear…instead of protecting men from injury by whim, the government is arrogating to itself the power of unlimited whim, so that we are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.

Rand laid it on the line when addressing the crimes of government:

Criminals are a small minority in any age or community. And the harm they have dome to mankind is infinitesimal when compared to the horrors – the bloodshed, the wars, the persecution, the famines, the enslavements, the wholesale destruction – perpetrated by mankind’s governments. Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man’s rights – When unlimited and unrestricted by individual rights, a government is men’s deadliest enemy.

The Constitution Con

Victorian philosopher Herbert Spencer pondered whether man requires governments at all:

What, then, do they (Humans) want a government for? Not to regulate commerce; not to educate the people; not to teach religion; not to administer charity; not to make roads and railways; but simply to defend the natural rights of man – to protect person and property – to prevent the aggressions of the powerful upon the weak – in a word, to administer justice. This is the natural, the original, office of a government. It was not intended to do less: it ought not to be allowed to do more – (The Man Versus the State)

He also wrote:

The great political superstition of the past was the divine right of kings. The great political superstition of the present is the divine right of parliaments.
