“Experts”: How many Experts does it take to Change a Light Bulb or ….
Experts: How many self proclaimed, credentialed and certified “Experts” does it take to change a light bulb or a nation?
Over the last century, the political landscape in America has been systematically transformed to the very same European Aristocracy from which our Founders fled.
Our government, founded upon the principals of republican governments to provide Order, Protection and the Promotion of Peace and Prosperity has fallen prey to leaders who are not benevolent shepherds. How did this happen?
Who is trying to snuff out this little light of mine…of ours?
Noted economist, Friedrich Hayek reminds us in The Road to Serfdom:
“There is all the difference in the world between treating people equally
Attempting to make them equal.
While the first is the condition of a free society, the second means, as De Tocqueville described it, ‘a new form of servitude’.”
In 1928 Supreme Court Justice William Howard Taft handed over the Constitutional authority of an elected Congress to legislate to unelected “Experts”. Taft’s Progressive interpretive statement empowered non-elected “Experts” to legislate and opened up the rule of Progressive Aristocracy.
Ignoring the Constitution, the Federalist papers, and the age-old adage of: Thou shalt not committee…the power of legislation was delegated to NON-elected committees of “Experts, friends, relatives, patrons ie. The credentialed to manipulate, politically connected bureaucrats.”
Progressive Woodrow Wilson claimed that life had become too complicated for the common man to manage his own affairs, thus it would require government to govern for man.
Progressive Franklin D. Roosevelt looked to “experts” like Maynard Keynes to implement his New Deal. We need only look to Europe and the United States to see how well Keynesian debt economics has turned out for those “who are not all dead”, yet.
Progressive Lyndon B. Johnson sealed the slavery of generations with his 1965 ESEA Title funding, the removal of God, and his mantra of the “City of man”.
The Progress continued, as the propaganda promoted that man was no longer capable of managing his own needs, his health, his family, his education, his environment, his economy, his future or his Governing. All would require the careful management of credentialed “experts.”
The Founders knew that in order to self govern; citizens must be educated in the virtues, values, Truths and analytical thinking skills to be capable of self-government.
This ability to self-govern included being equipped to recognize and keep accountable those who citizens would elect and consent to represent their interests in government.
Remember: Governments govern by the consent of the people.
As America dims her lights and throws out her textbooks, heading to a virtual classroom and a virtual country, this quote from the Czech Republic Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon, sums up the painful truth of America’s century of being changed by the “experts.”
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”
Europeans who have been watching America’s lights dim, possess an astute recognition of a reality too few Americans have yet to accept.
Living amidst the realities of Marxism, socialism and totalitarian forms of government, yearning for the Liberty that once distinguished America above all nations of the globe; and watching her people give it all away, is like losing your heroes, your home, and your hope.
Darkness both spiritually and physically has prevailed across Europe for many decades. Darkness not only in Eastern Europe, but nearly all of Europe; where no one works, everyone walks the streets to get some light, because interior light bulbs are limited inside the Smarter Green Planet dwellings. Europe, where everyone waits for the experts to tell him or her what to do next.
Europe, where only the politically connected can start a business, choose their own profession, and become state certified to become one of the “experts.” Europe, who defines God as a piece of state owned architecture, easily exchanged for the next trending deity. Europe, Global UN driven Europe, that America progressively follows.
If America does not wish to become merely a geographic expression, part of Global Europe then,
Americans must arise and say:
“No more “experts” engineering a Smarter Planet.”
No more of the Smarter Planet with dumber people, systematically managed by Systems analysts to snuff out the lights and return to the darkness and chains of feudalism.
Free nations, like the individuals that comprise a free society, recognize that virtue is paramount to their survival and that that virtue stems from God, the Original Expert.
So, How many Experts does it take to change a light bulb, to save a nation or an individual?
While there is still Time to Choose.
“The LORD is my light and my salvation~
Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life~
Of whom shall I be afraid?
When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh,
When my enemies and my foes attack me,
They will stumble and fall…”
Psalm 27: 1-2
