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;
- Social Justice and Economic Equality
- Misguided Pursuit of Personal Value
- 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.
