- RISK & STABILITY
- "Protection" despite the way many might see
it, has always been the unseen major industry that hides everything it
does in plain site. But protection is no longer just "an option,"
it's become a government requirement almost across the board, in far too
many ways. Government is not just a full partner in the protection industry;
it has actually taken control over everyone and virtually everything, to
provide this much "needed" 'PROTECTION' to everyone of course!
The only real problem that this government does not provide us with 'protection'
from-is that most basic protection-from the government itself that all
of us must have if we are to be able to live and prosper at the same time!
This is what is at issue between the fluidity and challenges of Risk and
the frequently rigid requirements that Stability often prefers to use,
to guarantee continued success.
- For decades the health insurance industry and those few
that want to direct the lives of everyone else, having been trying to force
the public to BUY protection by creating some very special laws which they
have written, because they fear that their lives and their possessions
might be endangered if there is no legally guaranteed protection for them:
from those of us that do not have "insurance." This is such bullshit
that it is almost unspeakable.
- However this is how mandatory auto-insurance quietly
made it into the lexicon of life, and was soon followed by another massive
income stream; The SEAT-BELT industry that was soon joined by the helmet
safety programs. These 'ideas' were never about safety as much as they
were about insurance: This has always been about the power to dictate protection
for a whole class of the worst people, to be paid for by the rest of us-whether
we as a nation need it or not.
- Before you go ballistic about the saintliness of "the
data" that disproves what I just said, you might want to read a bit
further. The proposition that PROTECTION is something that can be purchased
is an artificial construct. Life is unpredictable, and always has been.
Insurance was created to protect people, in theory, from Life's most unexpected
events. But that theory didn't make the people that offered the policies
enough money; because not everyone on the planet was involved in buying
what has become their bogus protection from life in all its many forms.
So the Insurance industry began to court the government with ideas that
could make them both far more influential.
- Home Owners Insurance became a requirement, but the regulation
of these "insurance schemes" have never been as fairly regulated;
when it comes to what if anything shall be paid to policy-holders, when
claims were filed to pay policy-holders what they thought they had the
right to expect. Ask anyone caught up in a national disaster like a firestorm,
a flood or a Katrina just how well did their required insurance 'protect"
anyone except the insurance companies themselves? The same is true of
every other area in which insurance-of-some-kind is mandated.
- When the payment of premiums is MANDATED, the insurance
will be revoked the second that payments are interrupted: And everything
already paid in is kept by the company. But when it's the Insurance Companies'
turn to deliver on the promises they made in their contracts-there is no
defender of the rights of those that routinely get the royal-purple-shaft
from these supposedly legitimate crooks that call themselves pillars of
our society. This is because the companies hide behind their armies of
lawyers and the government for protection, or they declare bankruptcy,
rather than PAY what was agreed on, in many cases several decades before.
- Last week we just added the entire world of medical-insurance
to the requirements that people must now pay for or go to jail. And as
it is in other industries where the law forces citizens to buy what they
do not believe in; there are no strict requirements being forced upon the
government or the medical profession to provide the person with the insurance,
or any real CARE of any kind: in fact the industry is still free to disqualify
anyone that they believe might actually need to use the policy they have
just forced millions of people to buy!
- There is no watchdog agency that insures that anyone
gets the treatments that might be needed in US hospitals or clinics. The
way that this once worked was that IF the insurance companies failed to
provide the services they sold to consumers-then the market would force
them out of business. But that was before the entire medical community
climbed into bed with that whore of all whores: the US Government! There
is no reciprocal-responsibility involved in this latest theft of the right
of Americans to decide for themselves how to provide for themselves and
their families-in light of the now totally fraudulent fascism that has
overtaken this nation.
- What is always overlooked is that this is PROTECTION
at its finest, if you and yours are the ones that know they NEED be protected
from the great unwashed, whether we are driving cars, or spreading germs
in public places-the rich must insure that the rest of us will provide
them with a healthy settlement should the rich ever need to sue any of
the less fortunate.
- "Protection" is a common requirement in almost
every society, in some form. The poorer the country the more brutal is
the requirement for protection from the powers that be. Whether you're
a small shop owner in New York that needs protection from street gangs
and the cops; or you're in the rag-business or the diamond trade
"rich man, poor man, beggar-man, thief" everyone pretty much
needs some kind of protection for themselves and for what they do. But
only the rich can require the rest of us to pay for bogus insurance so
that their properties and persons can be protected from the common herd.
How long will it be before the lawyers begin demanding that the public
have legal insurance, for those times just ahead when so many will be arrested?
How superb would that be to have prepaid legal insurance against the certainty
of an arrest for something that you did not do?
- Whenever these philosophies have gotten out-of-control
in the past, things like the Guillotine began to get a lot of very public
use; because these strong-armed tactics whether by police thugs or blatantly
illegal government decrees that violate every tenant of American law and
practice all of it leads to failure and directly to the total destruction
of the society that chose this particular-path to self-destruction.
- This PROTECTION racket has been going on big-time in
America since Madison Avenue first began to realize that Americans are
afraid of everything including their own shadows: and soon 'The Great American
Protection Racket' was born! Now hundreds of trillions of dollars later
the whole charade is being applied to every phase of life in this country.
- This does not involve just companies and the government
it's become part of the life of ordinary individuals. Why do lawyers exist?
To PROTECT something that someone wants to protect from harm or loss. Doctors
exist to PROTECT people from disease and to help them to recover should
they become ill. Professions of all kinds have been converted from creating
things, such as better ways to live the lives that each of us have been
given; to PROTECTING people from things that no one has any right to be
protected from; in the normal course of living. Shrinks, teachers, researchers
every profession must now consider how they can "assist people"
(while forcing the unwilling) with PROTECTION from things that are mostly
just another aspect of life.
- The greatest protection from life is contained in the
way one chooses to live it. It is both that simple and that complex. And
all of the folly that is being pursued so avidly by this fascist government
and their pirate-leaning private- associates will not in the end profit
them at all: Because everybody dies. The question really is, how we choose
to live the lives we have been given? Buying into PROTECTION simply speaks
to the failure of individuals to live openly and well because they are
not living in opposition to most of life, but are in sync with the universe
- The government is now in the PROTECTION business and
has been running on overtime for the last nine years: Yet this countries'
citizens have never lived in a more dangerous world, thanks to our protectionist
polices worldwide. All of our PROTECTIONS (in the form of the rights we
were all born with) are now gone; because they have been stolen by the
government in the name of private-corporate-needs or just because it's
far more profitable for those providing the services that are now being
managed, by the same government agencies, that were supposed to be 'protecting
us' from all this fascism and the enforced obligations that neither government
nor private industry has the right to dictate to any citizen of this country.
- This practice however is not limited to Americans; because
we've forcefully applied these same rules and totally arbitrary arrangements
to other countries. One example was when Cheney and Bechtel decided to
privatize the entire water supply for all of Bolivia; even claiming that
they owned their rainwater as well. However the citizens of Cochabamba
kicked them out of the country-forcefully-unlike the cowardly Americans
that have not stopped a single criminal act by their so-called government
in the last nine years. (1)
- This coercion has become common practice now because
we must all be PROTECTED; just not from those who are demanding that we
BUY their bogus services, but for every possible and usually idiotic distortion
of any real threat to life & limb; such as what TSA does to every possible
passenger, except those that are flying on private planes.
- Never forget that PROTECTION is a Racket as old as organized
crime; and that when the government of any country adopts PROTECTION wholesale,
as the preferred method for dealing with its citizens then that nation
is finished as anything that could be worth saving.
- The balance between RISK & STABILTY, as indicated
in the illustration, has always been with people since the beginning. How
we choose or fail to choose to deal with that equation now is what shall
ultimately decide the immediate future, not just for this country but for
the world. Because this criminal-cabal has become our government, and because
we have failed to curb its worst intentions toward the rest of the planet
it is our responsibility now to do something NOW to stop these bastards
that run this place from continuing to brutalize, to torture and to murder
the rest of the planet in the name of this overzealous PROTECTION for the
- This is what is responsible for the idea that Americans
are too dumbed-down, too drugged-out and just too deeply affected by all
the toxins in the air, the water, the food and the land to think clearly.
It is this artificial NEED for a PROTECTION that cannot really exist that
is at the bottom of the real fear that has kept this nation paralyzed,
in the face of annihilation by the monsters that own us. Speak now or forever
hold your piece!
