Seven Primary Causes of Tyranny and Why They Are Gaining Support: Part 1

The U.S. is on the path to hyperinflation and tyranny as capitalism, individual liberty and freedom are being destroyed. 

The good news is that we can stop the trend and reverse course.  In order to do that we need to understand what the primary causes are that are leading the nation to tyranny.

I have discussed the path to hyperinflation at length in other articles, so I’m going to focus this discussion on causes that lead to tyranny. 

The tyranny that I’m talking about is a complete loss of freedom and individual liberty as the government becomes the dominate structure that controls everything from our health to our jobs to our homes to our safety to the information to consume to the religion we practice.

The result of a tyranny is that the people become slaves to the nation in which they live.

Now you may be thinking, we are not as dumb as the nations that fell into tyranny.  It’s easy to think that we are smarter than the nations that fell into the trap of tyranny or that our government structure is superior, but if you read through history the nations that fell into tyranny where some of the most advances and smartest. 

Therefore every nation needs to be on the lookout for the signs of tyranny and be aware that it is a slippery slope that is hard to detect – like boiling a frog in water – that results in tyranny. 

The reason a tyranny is hard to detect is because the social causes that support a tyranny are easily disguised in such a way that we everyone finds themselves supporting

Who is willing to say, they don’t support feeding the poor or housing the low income or saving the whales or teaching religion equality or government stimulus to reduce unemployment?

Nobody, yet these good intentioned ideas can be used to disguise government policies that lead to tyranny. 

Here is the list of the top 7 things that are leading to tyranny;

  1. Humanism
  2. Social Justice and Economic Equality
  3. Environmentalism
  4. Socialism
  5. Fascism
  6. Misguided Pursuit of Personal Value
  7. Economic Central Planning

These seven things are at the heart of the path to tyranny in the U.S. and they are all currently getting a lot of publicly support. 

In part 2 I’m going to explain these 7 leading causes of tyranny in detail to gain a better understanding of the cynical forces behind these ideas – that are supported by seemingly good intentions.

Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse

In discussions of today's economic meltdown and what to do about it, the Federal Reserve is a stealth helicopter: it never shows up on the radar. With the exception of a few esoteric specialists and those Ron Paul Revolutionaries who burst into chants of "Abolish the Fed!" Historian Thomas Woods notes in this important book, the Federal Reserve bears a large part of the blame for the mess we're in. In the first part of "Meltdown," Woods shows how both in theory and in practice, Fed policy fueled an artificial boom and is now leading us to a much larger meltdown.

How Capitalism Saved America

This book is an excellent presentation on the problems of government 'regulations' into free market mechanisms. This book illustrates simply and clearly how many chaotic economic problems were caused by interference from government regulations and how capitalism has overcome them. Master this book and you have overcome most of the bad economic thinking of our time. Government is the cause of capitalism failure.

The Hyperinflation Survival Guide: Strategies for American Businesses

The Hyperinflation Survival Guide offers strategies for business managers to keep their enterprise afloat in the midst of runaway inflation. Within this succinct little book are a plethora of sensible business strategies for American businesses. If businesses are to survive they must effectively counter and minimize the ill effects of rampant inflation and/or hyperinflation. The utmost prudence is required in managing accounts receivable, inventory, and production at such a time. A sudden inflationary economic downturn may very well bring a business to its knees leading to insolvency.

Day of Reckoning

In Day of Reckoning, Pat Buchanan reveals the true existential crisis of the nation and shows how President Bush's post-9/11 conversion to an ideology of 'democratism' led us to the precipice of strategic disaster abroad and savage division at home. Ideology, writes Buchanan, is a false god that seeks vainly to create a paradise on earth. While free enterprise is good, the worship of a 'free trade' that is destroying the dollar, de-industrializing America, and ending our economic independence, is cult madness.
