There’s a tyrant, who has a YUGE prob,
He “kisses up to” bad Vlad, his “heartthrob”?
When push comes to shove,
He’ll deny they’re “in love”?
He’ll “fool around”, but not “marry” that slob?
In muck and mud a known tyrant does wallow,
Same can be said of his flunkies who follow,
Suck-ups eager to please,
Get down on both knees,
The huge question? Do they spit or swallow?
Tyrant’s enablers: flawed judges, lawmakers,
The alt right media shills and muckrakers,
They’ll spread lies, monger fear,
They’re all mucked up, that’s clear,
Towards robust liberty, they’re all ballbreakers.
A mucked up tyrant is so tough to stop,
He’ll lop off heads, those who try, chop! Chop!! CHOP!!!
Question his revolution?
And his quick fix “solution”?
Will be to P-D-Q axe the top cop!
Electees and selectees, who hold down big government positions, must be truthful at all times. NO EXCEPTIONS! Whenever they get busted for telling flat out lies, their big boss MUST promptly bark out his trademark catchphrase, “YOU’RE FIRED!” To not do so causes the snarling, top dog to appear as guilty and corrupt as his obsequious subordinates.
Lies of omission are no better.
Often, obfuscation of the truth involves self-serving political expedience… better known as selective amnesia. Cutting through the euphemistic bullcrap, under these circumstances, what we’re actually eye witnessing are the big boss’s rat-like cronies scurrying and scampering around in CYA mode. These downright deplorables… these brazenly lying bastards are prioritizing paycheck over patriotism… career over country… and as such, MUST BE denied their cushy government positions, as well.
Other times, tiptoeing around the truth involves genuine forgetfulness. But even if such lapses of memory are not motivated by malice… even if these instances are isolated and rare… this is still reason for deep concern.
Considering how… as I type this… as you read this… tyrants (e.g. puppeteer Putin) and terrorists (e.g. ISIS / al Qaeda) are relentlessly plotting to dominate and devastate our world, we cannot afford anything less than picture perfect integrity and mental clarity from big government big shots… from the tippy top downward… all along the chain of command.
While it’s OK for forgetful people to be employed… their job descriptions had better not involve life or death decisions… where cloudy thinking could jeopardize the survival of democratic nations and freedom loving people everywhere.
Once upon a time there were two gangbanger hoodlums whose street names were Truncheon and Puma. Actually… both were corrupt, wretched, wicked little boys, who were each vying for absolute power… for total domination of their respective home turf. They were also surreptitiously plotting to overthrow each other.
To that end Truncheon… as his very name suggests… was relying heavily on his swaggering, overbearing, temperamental MO… one where he’d hammer in his wildly unpopular, multifaceted POV… thoughtlessly pummel his nation’s economy, ecology and society while, simultaneously, exhibiting his zero tolerance for dissent.
Indeed, he flat out demanded unconditional love from each and every, average Jane and Joe citizen who he attempted to dominate. In the process all he actually accomplished was wringing out every ounce of hope from anyone who could still think for themselves.
Naturally, these disgruntled and depressed gals and guys fully realized that Truncheon was leading everyone off a cliff… that his rule could only result in a stagnant and retrograde society… perhaps even leading up to an apocalyptic end to said society.
But alas… the knowledgeable were amongst a dying breed.
Additionally, decades worth of Truncheon’s likeminded, predecessor gang leaders and propagandists had laid in the devious, devastating, cancerous, perhaps irreversible groundwork… thereby making any lasting, civilized change everyone could believe in next to impossible to achieve… let alone maintain.
Thereby ensuring Truncheon his absolute power… which corrupts absolutely.
On the other hand, Puma… as his very name suggests… was far more catlike… deviously relying on brains over brawn, stealthy, manipulative, sneaky little shit tactics. He did so, even to the point of sucking up to Truncheon, who ignorantntly, simplistically and erroneously believed Puma to be his staunch ally.
Needless to say… nothing could’ve been further from the truth!
You see… Puma fully realized he could affect a no-shots-fired coup d’état… oust gang leader Truncheon and then casually waltz in to usurp his turf. To accomplish that feat, all Puma had to do was bide his time… sit back and laugh his ass off while watching harebrained Truncheon’s do-it-yourself self-destruction of his nation’s individuals and infrastructure.
The following discussion is based on the premise that Democracy, by its very definition, means that the People are the bosses of their leaders… and NEVER vice versa. Via the ballot box, the People are supposed to wield the hiring and firing power over said leaders… HOWEVER…
Let’s explore the wide awake nightmare that could become reality when some low information people get brainwashed into hiring a charismatic entity who harbors materialistic, narcissistic and sadistic tendencies… one who is hell bent on selling out the economy and ecology to the highest (lowlife) bidder?
Let’s say… soon after HIS ascending the throne… HE flat out demands absolute, no questions asked loyalty from everyone HE lords power over? That’s a hell of a lot to expect from folks whose day-to-day lives HE is needlessly and ceaselessly ruining… would you not agree?
Let’s say human nature causes most self-respecting folks to react by instantly going into KMA mode?
Let’s say that HE then overreacts by ordering all such dissidents to shut the F up and apologize? APOLOGIZE? Those, who HE attempts to dominate are supposed to do what? Suck up HIS abuse and say they’re sorry for legally exercising their rights to reject his obnoxious personality and odious ideology?
Let’s say, that the oppressed folks, who, ironically, are HIS bosses, refuse to kiss HIS ass… and HE then decides to punish them mercilessly? To that end HE deploys the troops and rolls out the tanks… commands HIS army to go on a rampage throughout the land… gleefully instructs them to kick down doors and round up every last suspected political dissident?
Let’s say that, sans any due process, HE locks them all up, throws away the key and then tortures them… uh… pardon the “erroneous” terminology… subjects the subjugated to “enhanced interrogation techniques”?
Let’s say… just to further tighten up HIS suffocating chokehold on power… just to muzzle any reporters and bloggers who may’ve slipped through HIS nationwide dragnet… HE decides to hit the “kill switch” to the Internet?
Just how, then, would the oppressed masses ever be able to legally exercise their freedom of speech… their freedom of the press… their right to peaceably assemble and petition their government for a redress of grievances?
Where could the citizenry turn when their best available outlet for presenting the grim facts-of-oppressed-life to their compatriots becomes inaccessible? Uh… that’d be going on the assumption there’d still be enough bold citizens who’d still be willing to actively speak up… or for that matter even passively listen?
At that point, all petitioners would be forced to go underground… and the need for anonymity would be paramount.
Let’s say such surviving dissenters then opt to petition their “government” by using old school printing presses? STRIKE THAT
Not when online newspapers and periodicals have driven much of this equipment into obsolescence and/or oblivion… not when whatever presses may still survive are at the mercy of HIS brown shirted, goon squads with standing orders to demolish this machinery with sledgehammers.
Let’s say whatever dissenters remain then crank up their computers’ laser and inkjet printers? STRIKE THAT
There can be no anonymity when such devices are actually spying on everyone… when each and every page contains difficult to see yellow dot encoding, which deviously reports the printer’s brand, serial number and date of printouts… as well as the owner’s ID, zip code and phone number.
Let’s say dissenters, as a last ditch effort, resort to publishing handwritten newsletters and flyers? STRIKE THAT
HIS handwriting analysts could easily expose and “incriminate” them. Furthermore, sans the ability to easily and anonymously generate multiple thousands of copies, protest movements would quickly languish.
Now… let’s say that the People are too smart to ever hire a leader whose evil intent is to severely betray them?
Uh… too late… better STRIKE THAT too!
