Roll, revolve and then reroll, and nevertheless you’ll discover that there is no way out but to get back to the basics.. The ABC of that mysterious subject, still incomprehensive to many, and known to few as Democracy:
“The constituents (electors) vote, who wins governs, and the loser opposes, press together with the Judiciary bench (magistrature) control, citizens oversee and police, and the intellectuals think and help others to think.”
Marco Travaglio -
If we are not capable of realising even such a generic definition to incorporate it into a “Strategic National Project” to unify all of us and guide us finding ways to put it into practice, then we deserve what we’ve got.. The worst of the Fascist Dictatorships history ever invented that a nation could ever obtain.. A dictatorship founded upon the deep pillars of “Mental Enslavement”.
Mr. Noam Chomsky* explains this type of enslavement in his latest writings “Power Systems: Conversations on Global Democratic Uprisings and the New Challenges to U.S. Empire”.. Here are excerpts from what he said:
When the individuals start claiming more liberty, so as not to be enslaved or killed or suppressed; then new forms of control would spontaneously develop to impose “Mental Slavery” which induces them to accept, without questioning, a system of indoctrination.
If it becomes possible to encage people in a way that they wouldn’t notice the fundamental doctrines beneath, nor even doubt of their existence, then they have become mentally enslaved. They will do nothing other than obey the orders, same as if having a gun pointed at their foreheads.
TV, for instance, implants rigid schemes of thought where the doctrines are never baldly formulated; that no doubt would render the mind duller and blunter. TV insinuates and suggests a system, whereby in the end people would exactly do.
It is much more difficult to outgrow a system of undeclared assumptions or presuppositions, rather than an expressly enounced one.
Pass On The Word.
