Aristotle’s ancient formula for tyranny
I was reading the book "The Politics" when I got to the chapter on tyranny, and it seemed to me that Aristotle is bringing a pretty accurate description of what’s happening today. The issues raised and discussed in The Politics continue to be of significance and importance as well after more than two thousand years. About 340 BC, Aristotle wrote one of the most important books revealing on one hand steep by steep on how a government could to maintain a tyrannical system and on the other hand alerting us to this possible threat for humankind.
I suppose one new change is the censorship ramping up even farther. We knew this would occur as it’s in the globalist battle plans, and they have devoted a tremendous amount of time and resources into ensuring total narrative control. Content creators on social media are reporting suppression unlike any they’ve seen so far, mass reporting, comment deletion, algorithm sabotage resulting in little to no views, and account bans like never before. Why the sudden urgency? What are they gearing up for that they don’t want people talking about? The sad truth is that it could be a number of things. The very obviously stolen election is a subject deemed untouchable by our globalist overlords. Perhaps that’s the reason for the notable censorship increase. The destruction of efficient energy is demonstrating the stupidity of green policies, and that is also an obvious fact that they cannot allow being openly discussed. After all, that would be an affront to their earth-worshipping, anti-human religion. Nobody can now deny that we are being ruled by Druidic pagans as they recently gathered at Mount Sinai (according to their calculations) to announce their own perverted moral code, the ten climate commandments. The blasphemy is becoming increasingly blatant. The COP27 symbol is intentionally reminiscent of the symbol for the ancient Egyptian sun god, Ra, and they even constructed their climate center (pagan temple) in the likeness of the symbol. This is not uninformed conjecture. One-world government gains more footing even as the great river dries.
So let’s go to the core and break this two thousand years old wisdom pill chapter down. “The tyrant should lop off those who are too high and put to death mean of spirit. He must not allow common meals, clubs, education and the like. He must be upon his guard against anything that may inspire either courage or confidence amongst his subjects. He must prohibit assemblies and take every means to prevent people from knowing one another, for acquaintance begets mutual confidence. Further, he must compel all persons staying in the city to appear in public and live at his gates – then he will know what they are doing. If they are always kept under, they will learn to be humble… A tyrant should also endeavor to know what each of his subjects says or does and should employ spies… for the fear of informants prevents people from speaking their minds, and if they do, they are more easily found out. Another art of the tyrant is to sow quarrels among the citizens. Also, he should impoverish his subjects. He thus provides against the maintenance of the guard by the citizen, and the people, having to keep hard at work, are prevented from conspiring.” “…put to death men of spirit.” Who are men of spirit? People with clear values, ready to fight for their own freedom. People who would defy official narratives. “…must not allow common meals, clubs, education and the like.” With the attack on food we have been seeing, our “common meals” may not be so common before long. And though we have a form of education, it is carefully tended by our government. One might say true education has been eradicated indeed.
“…must be on his guard against anything that may inspire either courage or confidence amongst his subjects.” One might say Hollywood leads the charge in the modern inspiration department, followed by propagandized media. Both entities are CIA-controlled. This has been demonstrated in congressional hearings decades ago. They are certainly on guard against anything that may inspire courage or confidence. “…further he must compel all persons staying in the city to appear in public and live at his gates.” Have you heard about the 15-minute city project? It is being sold as a climate friendly way to structure a city such that all amenities are within proximity to all residents, but the true motivation is control. In a smart city of this kind, people would be monitored at all times and would be rendered immobile. A city such as this would make it very easy to ensure the people remain confined. “…a tyrant should also endeavor to know what each of his subjects says or does, and should employ spies.” That is precisely what fact-checkers and organizations like DHS’s Disinformation Governance Board (which has NOT been disbanded as they claim) are for. Your devices are always listening. “…sow quarrels among the citizens.” This has been successful enough in the 2-party system alone. Now add to that the race-baiting and false flag hate crimes to complement this division, and we have quite a quarrelsome people indeed, which is much further exacerbated by social media. “…he should impoverish his subjects.” This is naturally their goal. How many millions have gone to green policy pits, vaccine producers, energy companies just this year? Of course any war in an energy-rich region with former trading partners in Commodities including fossil fuels would have an impact on the market, but if the cost of living crisis was solely the fault of the war you wouldn't see energy companies in Europe reaching record profits. Wouldn’t you?
We already know that ordinary people are regarded as collateral damage. We already know that the function of government is to take money from the public and place it into private hands. That's why the Afghanistan war is so long. Some people think that even the current conflict, while I would say that undoubtedly Putin, and the degree of villainy about him, is creating Economic Opportunity. When ordinary people are making a choice between food or heat, it's time to accept that things are failing at an unprecedented level, and we can no longer call this progress. We can no longer rub our hands and say “Oh look, soon AI robots will be doing even more jobs!” Since the start of this winter, people are paying 80% more in energy bills while energy companies have their pick of profit. If this is to generate profit rather than to sustain a system, then it is obvious you can't plunge people into poverty, so the shareholders can continue to take dividends so that the value of energy companies can continue to increase. That’s unethical, that is exploitation, it’s tyranny, it’s State manipulation, it’s lying at the level of saying this is all the result of the Ukrainian War. Establishment Elites are profiting from poverty, and it's gone too far. It has to be addressed. It will only be addressed by uprising when failure within the system is assured. You have to move beyond the system in order to succeed. That’s why communities, people organizations and small businesses that counteract the central system, need our maximal attention and support today.
Building community is the best thing we can do to survive. Wishing you all the best as we continue to watch Aristotle’s ancient formula for tyranny continue to unfold.
