Democracy as disease

The advocates for torture, imprisonment and killing are afflicted and thereby present a risk to all of mankind.
<b>The evolution of the United States of America (and its similarly empowered and closely aligned cohorts around the globe) over the past two centuries from a so-called Democracy (i.e.: government by the people) into the now well known (and universally feared as diabolical and homicidal) fascist body politic can be attributed to a not yet fully acknowledged disease afflicting billions of people during the same time period. In essence, the disease may for now be termed * 'insanity', and those suffering from the affliction continue to be in denial, even as they repeatedly engage in their violent and otherwise murderous agenda worldwide. As few call for the medical treatment of the carriers of the disease, some action must be taken to control or perhaps to cure the affliction; failure to do so invites the members of the infected class to 1) continue globally to torture, imprison and murder millions of human beings in the name of 'Democracy' and 2) ceaselessly induct and thereby enslave the rest of the world's population into their demented and flagitious ranks. In a sense these very sick human beings represent the Living Dead among us as they advance with arms extending, fingers pointing,
mouths wide-opening and evil proclivities protruding:

<i>The fbi/cia are the most corrupt, homicidal, godless and degenerate group of thugs, torturers and assassins ever to appear on the face of the earth.</i>

"...the individual cannot delegate the task of defending his basic human rights-to dignity,liberty, and responsibility-to any group of protectors,..." be they clergy, doctors, legislators, fbi, mafia, police, judges. "For if the protectors are successful, they inevitably become oppressors...."
Instead, the individual must as I have demonstrated muster all the resources in heart, mind and soul to resist and overcome as best he can the bestial tyrants of his time; in the struggle the fortunate fighter maintains his dignity and prepares the way for successors to advance (with even more fury, resolve and purpose) the search for enduring Humanity in this often barbaric world.</b>

ROBERT MASSI: God Bless the FBI
By Robert Massi
Attorney/FOX News Legal Analyst

This is a perfect example that we must be right all of the time and they only need to slip through the cracks once.
[torture &amp; murder are never right]


This is a true and silent war and all of us, as Americans, must realize and be reminded that law enforcement is the only line between a safe and unsafe America.
[silent to the mentally lame, intentionally deaf, and the Living Dead; to the Living the "only line" is viewed as war machine propaganda]

-
God bless the FBI and the work all law enforcement do to protect us each and everyday. It reminds us of the never ending battle and whatever it takes to catch the bad guys it should be done.
[use not the term 'God bless' in the context of the evil incarnate fbi/cia/police]

All this crap on waterboarding - ask the families who may have lost their lives if other terror plots hadn't been foiled.
[waterboarding is a crime against <u><i><b>Humanity</b></i></u>;the 'families' do not exist]

This is a true and silent war and all of us, as Americans, must realize and be reminded that law enforcement is the only line between a safe and unsafe America.
[Don't tell me what I must realize, fool]

This is one issue that should be non-partisan. I could care less what method is used to catch the bad guys to protect Americans. Who would ever think that a representative from the U.S. Congress would demean the very people who keep her safe each and every day? Thank you law enforcement for your efforts.
["care less"= careless; Congress is cowardly, corrupt &amp; dependent on their survival on the thugs and assassins of the criminality of fbi/cia/law enforcement.]

my fond mentor, SZAZ 24.May.2009 22:03

burr

I have two observations
1.the People is a Beast" A. Hamilton
2. read "The Murder of Christ" by W. Reich so you will understand the slant this author takes as being retro and simplistic and i suspect from one who favors dictators for our own good (we children) and youl see how SZAZ is rather narrow in perspectives - as well as somewhat abused by our author.

"...democracy..... , except for all the other systems..." seems not in the mind of him/her who may be suffering the very dangerous true believer sydrome which most rabidly expressed as Jacobianism but is quite alive and "well" today.
