Martin Armstrong – Is Democracy Dying?

Subtitled, “The Real Leviathan – The Power Cleverly Hidden Behind Politicians,” this Armstrong piece strikes to the heart, THE ROOT CAUSES, of our financial and economic problems… (For those who do not recognize the term, here is a link to the Wikipedia entry on the Leviathan ).

A real treat, Armstrong tells it like it is. Can you handle the truth?
“Democracy is dying if not already dead. We live in a delusion, a nightmare from which there seems to be no escape. …For as much as we may believe we have a Democracy and that the State is somehow controlled by the people, there is nothing that is further from the truth than this fiction of our imagination.”

HOW TRUE! These are all points that I have been making, but Armstrong makes his case plain and simple. He addresses the need for the rule of law and how we are currently not following it.

Once again he uses history to teach about the rule of law and takes us back into antiquity; way past the Great Depression which is apparently and unfortunately as far back as anyone in our own government has studied! He then tackles religion and places it in context with the past and modern times and how it has influenced economics. Tying that altogether, he then reflects on modern history.

This is quite a work! I hope everyone takes the time to read and understand what he is discussing. He is talking about the RULE OF LAW and how critical it is to have it in place in order for capital to form. The rule of law IS CERTAINLY NOT about your local State Patrol pulling you over to finance their operations! Enjoy this piece, I think we have all learned from Martin’s writing and I for one am thankful we have enough freedom left to enjoy it!
