Behold, who really cares about civil liberties in a society that puts government as the final arbitrator of authority? Well, sadly the prospects for a rebirth in recognizing that individual liberties are the basis for a civilized union are more remote now than at any time in the last half century. Most people view civil liberties as defined by protecting the personage.
Notwithstanding, constitutional freedom has an important component is maintaining a just and functioning government regime. Sinking into a despotic authoritarianism is the expected risk when governments go amok. However, inadequate attention is given to the discussion and study of what constitutes a responsible state power.
The power elite that rule the corridors of administration operate by the principle that the supremacy of the state is the cardinal imperative. Holding “public servants” accountable for committing corrupt offenses falls to the bottom of the official duties list. Citing the endless examples of abuses seems to be unnecessary when the objective is to delineate a reasonable standard for implementing the public trust.
Dismiss the sideway argument that civil liberties must be balanced against the need for state security is imperative. Operating by the maxim that authentic security can only be achieved when the natural rights of CITIZENS from the nation are preserved and protected is the only path for a rational culture.
Regretfully that measure of social compatibility no longer exists in America. Those entrusted to uphold the constitution actually conduct their obligations as systemic law breakers. It is easy to ignore the plight of private subjects since they possess little effective influence much less capability for altering public policy.
This fact of circumstance seems instinctive to the ruling class. The niceties’ of the democratic process is a mere nuance to the much more important work of running the world. When the public relations machine from the propaganda apologists spurt out the mantra of civil right violations for the downtrodden and underprivileged, they are really saying that the individual is so inept and incapable of making their own way that the government must intervene and provide a social safety net that only benefits the bureaucracy.
My fellow denizens, most of you never learned the essence of personal responsibility. Without this understanding how is it possible to hold your selected representatives to fulfill their office requirements?
As the first anniversary of the Donald Trump election approaches, a distinctive disappointment hits the ranks of the deplorables. That esteemed former Senator from the great State of Alabama demonstrates that upholding the civil liberties of the public is not a prerequisite for the token head of the Department of Injustice. Supporting civil forfeiture dictates is a fundamental abeyance of due process.
Session’s pattern of recusal deems his wherewithal to be the head of the DoJ impossible. The inability of removing Obama holdovers or simply entrenched careerist of the deep state illustrates that draining the swamp cannot be achieved when that task is assigned to professional politicians. Upholding the law is too important to entrust lawyers to administer the prosecution, or lack thereof; of the crooks and criminals that make up the ranks of government.
Lest one forgets Forbes list of AG Eric Holder’s Top 10 Rule-of-Law Violations and Jay Sekulow’s assessment that Attorney General Lynch Must Resign argues, the Attorney General’s office has been a cesspool violator from the rule of law for quite some time.
And who among sincere Americans has confidence in the judicial courts to rule against the government which employs them? Oh yes, all those deep state bighearted federal magistrates love to disrupt Trump’s immigration authority, but the underlying issue is that upholding the genuine national interests has nothing to do with the way these self-aggrandize Judge Dredds operate.
If government is unwilling to police their own kind, it loses any rightful authority they allege they have to impose their command over ordinary citizens.
Only by cleaning up the permanent con game can the righteous civil liberties of the entire SOCIETY be achieved. The ruling elite has never been the champion of the masses. As for the limousine liberals who keep getting re-elected, few if any walk the walk of a true civil libertarian. This reality brings forth another crucial factor.
Most mentally challenged popular culture absorbers are too ignorant in their understanding of history, political hard ball and philosophical dynamism that made America unique and profoundly different from the tyrannical establishments that keep their people enslaved.
Regard for others is easily sacrificed when so many have little to no respect for themselves. The latest Antifa domestic terror provides proof positive that civil liberties are unknown to the Marxist thugs who are funded by the Soros globalist network.
As the Statesman reports in, Antifa group protests Trump administration as counter protesters wave Confederate flag at Austin City Hall, “Counter protesters outnumbered 3-to-1 the anti-fascism group that gathered at Austin City Hall on Saturday to protest the Trump Administration.”
Populist disgust for such zealot nihilists should not be dismissed. Average hard working and exploited law abiding citizens know intuitively that the culprits for the rave of identity political violence stems from the archaists who seek the overthrow of our constitutional republic.
However, what is buried deep within the official narrative that describes this social unrest is that the most entrenched corruptors inside the government actually want to see the demise of federalism. What they seek is an all supreme federal technocrat bureaucracy. With the elimination of States’ Rights, separations of powers and constitutional Bill of Rights protections; the oligarch patrons, who maintain their influence and power want a controlled dialectic conflict to prevent any real meaningful reform.
The essential miscarriage of justice is that the people’s civil liberties are minimized if not entirely eliminated. While it is relatively easy to identify specific instances when an individual has their civil liberty violated, little attention is given to the specific forfeiture of societal collective rights when the enforcement system extinguishes the flame of liberty.
Until the traditional values of civil liberties in all forms are accepted, the offenses from every level of government will never be resolved. People embody natural rights, not corporations or governmental agencies. The gatekeepers of the imperial state want to erase the idea of Thomas Jefferson’s Tree of Liberty from the memory banks of cultural consciousness.
Only popular outrage and adversarial action can achieve and hold public officials accountable. Looking to the government for protecting your rights is naive and foolish. Public assemblage in an orderly confrontation needs to demonstrate that civil disobedience is the needed and adopted tactic to shut down the tyrannical central government.
As long as the public is caught up in demanding bigger subsidies and more social benefits, the prospects for regaining a country that values civil liberties will never be realized. The choice is yours. Exist as an enslaved puppet or regain your human dignity and live like a free individual. Prospects to achieve this objective are on borrowed time. The enemy of the American people is the swamp. The solution is to re-adopt the principles of Thomas Jefferson.
