What’s Next? After No Governance? Civil War?

Cromwell, the English dictator, dismissed the Rump Parliament with this admonition

You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately … Depart, I say;  and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!

Then there was, another, of the English Civil Wars.

Neville Chamberlain, the Great Appeaser, was also dismissed when it became clear that Churchill was correct. Without war there was no stopping Hitler. Then there was another European War.

It is appropriate today for Our Beloved Leader. It is now clear that for campaigning he is a great orator. Of leadership, not a trace. After him, then what?

Primary him? After 2 more years of vacillating and indecision? That’ll work well. We might as well un-abolish slavery, because that’s the conclusion to our current individual debt servitude.  Our consumer society has become a parasite on us, extracting rents at every conceivable turn, even in our Government; as a repeat of the intent of the British Enclosures Act, which snatched the commons from many people.

Is the United States, as the last remaining empire of the 19th Century is coming to its decline and fall? For it appears ungovernable with its current parliamentary procedures, unless these procedures enable the extraction of further rents from its alleged “free” people. The existence of massive interest expense on the Government’s debt is regressive; Just ask: who benefits from the payment of interest by the Government, and who’s collective money is not used to enhance the commons?

If this is what you believe, focus on planning, on what the inevitable break up of the not-so-homogeneous remnants will become. For Washington, and its entrenched,  will not be willing give up its grip on power, and the consequences of a second civil war disastrous to us all.

There are no winners of a people caught in the middle of a civil war, only survivors.
