There is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than the creation of a new system.
For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old system and merely lukewarm defenders in those who would gain by the new one... ~ Machieavelli
Machieavelli was, unfortunately, right with that statement but that does not mean that we do not need a new system, which we indeed need, nor that we should not try to create this new one.
However, there are not just those enemies that Machieavelli speaks of. There are also the people in general who cannot see further than their noses and fathom that a new system is needed and that it could benefit us all. And when I say all I do mean all, the entire Planet and not just mankind.
Not only, as indicated, are our “leaders” and industry against any new system, especially one where the people have real control, and will regard anyone as much as advocating such a new system as “enemies of the state” and even as “terrorists”, the great majority of the people themselves, at present, cannot see that (1) a completely new economic- and political system is needed and (2) are afraid of the changes that this would bring.
As long as the government- and corporation controlled media is giving people an illusion of democracy, which is a fake, and hides the truth from them the people will remain in ignorance as to their true state and will stand against any change of the system.
The problem is that people hate the truth but, luckily, the truth does not care and keeps knocking. There will be many, however, who will not open their minds to the truth and thus remain ignorant and blinded. They will remain the enemy of any new system and of the advocates and proponents of any such system.
We must change the system, however, regardless of people's reactions as there is no other way. All our current political systems are faulty to the degree that they cannot be fixed so no good tinkering with them and the same is true for the economic system of a growth economy. And the biggest laugh is the oxymoron of “sustainable growth” for the Earth, our Planet and Mother, is finite and so are Her non-renewable resources and we have used up most of the latter and even have done serious damage to the renewable ones because we did not replenish them.
Democracy, or should we call it Democazy, as it is today, is but an illusion created by the powers-that-be to lull the sheeple into believing that they have a say in their affairs. Elections mean nothing, nothing whatsoever, as far as all governments are concerned.
Government is in the pocket of the invisible leaders and of corporations and they will do their bidding and not that of the so-called electorate. Only when people govern themselves will this change and our world will become a better place.
An archos is the mother of the word anarchy and means “without rulers” and it is such world that we need to fix the problems.
The old ways of family and clan government needs to be brought back and extended to work on a larger scale. This was a government where everyone had a say, often even the children, but then came the rulers, the feudal lords and kings and the world has been in trouble ever since.
We do not need a new government, we need a new system.
