LIONEL PRODCAST: Defining Political Vacuity and the Inevitability of an Identical Course

Symbolic voting. Pretending to be in control and having a say. Carroll Quigley, whose words absolutely define perfectly and beautifully and elegantly the essence of our national and POTUS elections today, provides us with this reality’s blueprint in Tragedy and Hope. Read these a few times. Wait and let their limpidity sink in. The left-right paradigm is a myth. An absolute, made up, illusory, fantasy that provides great meat for the MSDNC/Faux News crowd but resembles nothing in terms of reality. Trust me on this one. Once you realize the party system is sleight of hand, you can focus your attention on that which matters.

The history of the last century shows, as we shall see later, that the advice given to governments by bankers, like the advice they gave to industrialists, was consistently good for bankers, but was often disastrous for governments, businessmen, and the people generally.The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy.

Politics is mass, collective psychology. John Adams noted: “Democracy… while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.” This is serious business. Very serious.
