To Vote, or Not To Vote — What was the question?

My apologies to William Shakespeare (Hamlet's famous soliloquy) for the title of this blog!

Well, tomorrow's the big day. Whoop-de-doo. I can't wait for people to stop shouting at each other. I find listening to false-pride-filled ignoramuses blowing hot air at each other painfully B-O-R-I-N-G.

Taken as a whole, political1 leaders have never honored their end of any social compact, and how anyone with any political experience can believe otherwise bears witness to the effectiveness of government schools, 26 USC 501(c)(3) churches, and the Big Brother media (aka MSM, Vestigial Dinosaur Media, or Old Media) with their incessant Newspeak, in “educating” us into "voluntary" serfdom.

The social compacts/contracts — actually covenants with either 1) ignorant sheeple, or 2) predatory wolves who want to steal your labor, money and property — of man give the subjugated classes three real “rights:” 1) the right to believe in the system; 2) the right to pay  for  the system ; and 3) the right to participate in the herd decision-making process up to the point your dissent becomes effective (when it will be promptly outlawed, see Schenck v. U.S. , 249 U.S. 47 (1919)). All the rest of the hoopla is a false idol, an illusion, because the administrator/s of human law get to say what it means on a case-by-case basis regardless of the truth. Despite the lies of the law-profession culture — oh, a rare lawyer might admit the truth in private to a friend — the pragmatic fact is the REAL axiom is: "The judge can do as he pleases."

While Bill Clinton had some noteworthy remarks about voting and cutting other voters some slack for their choices, I wanted to deal a little more with the actual spiritual and intellectual mechanics of the voting process. It is purely a collectivist process, and inherently anti-individual and anti-Golden-Rule.

Not unlike what I like to call "The Mission Dilemma" where, like Robert DeNiro's Rodrigo Mendoza and Jeremy Irons' Father Gabriel had to decide whether to use violence or nonviolence in combating evil — soldier Mendoza chose the sword, while Jesuit priest Gabriel chose the cross, and they were both killed by the forces of evil — the spiritual and intellectual realities of voting demand that a person choose between 1) trying to fight from outside, and refuse to validate, an inherently evil and inevitably corrupting process for collectively choosing One Ring (political Power-Over-the-"Other") possessors to rule us by not participating in it (not voting), and 2) trying to fight government's inherent Big Brother anti-individual-freedom growth process from within the system by making some small-as-possible concessions to the general ignorance of the herd and voting for whichever "evil" you deem to be the lesser among the available choice of candidates.

This "Catch-22" could hardly be more difficult, philosophically speaking and is an intensely personal one. So, in a rare turn of events I find myself in agreement with Bill Clinton in not wanting to condemn or hassle anybody for the choice/s they make when they step into the secret voting booth and do there best to represent what they believe, rightly or wrongly, knowledgeably or ignorantly, to be their best interests. God bless them all.

It is the inherent nature of political power to gravitate from the many to the few. We have no need to concern ourselves with giving power to those individuals who call themselves “government,” or protecting their already delegated “authority.” Whatever rights and power the people don’t actively insist on keeping, the self-serving and greedy elitist herd/mob manipulators (aka “the government”) will most assuredly take.

Coercion/domination, like Tolkien’s One-Ring, was conceived by the Dark Lord and forged in the furnaces of evil. Any good attempted by its use is only a temporary illusion and will inevitably result in a greater evil. The ring of power is certain to corrupt its wearers, no matter how pure their initial intentions. The longer they possess the ring, the more corrupt and spiritually deformed they become.

Who among us is strong enough to put on the ring and serve the noble ends of happiness and prosperity for all? The only true answer is “no one.” Coercion/domination is too great a matter for the human heart. It is submitted that we should choose to cast it back into the fire where it was first hammered into existence. That’s the only way tyranny can be destroyed.

And how shall we take the ring to the fire, if no individual is great enough? We must all go together, for the journey will be hard and filled with many unexpected dangers. The fell servants of tyranny are all around us. The Evil One is ever watching to see who will weaken first and put the ring on.

Unwavering, we must hold the Creator’s precious Golden Rule aloft! Like the vial of Galadriel, it is made brighter by the courage and determination in our hearts. Its searing light will blind the eyes and bewilder the minds of all those who come against it — those creatures of evil who have dwelt beyond memory in the darkness, and have become so bloated by their insatiable rending of flesh and sucking of marrow from those who engage in honest labor that the sheer hugeness of their crawling malevolent filth threatens to extinguish the Sacred Lamps of Liberty and Justice.

FOOTNOTES:

1. Always remember, "politics" = person or group A trying to persuade person or group B to obey the will of A, most frequently for the personal financial benefit of A and to the personal financial detriment (higher taxes) of B. That is why deception = the so-called "art" of politics. That is also why "politician" = professional deceiver.
