    It’s a Parlimentry, one of which is becoming more demoractic, just like the United States Republic. Looking at history we know direct-demoracy (mob rule) eventually leads to an Oligarchy, Dictatorship, and possibly full blown anarchy if neither is established peacefully.

    What we have going on is plans by the few in power around the world to estbalish a one world monetary system and government. Without soverignty the powerful elite can influence the masses on a grander scale.

    This is merely the beginning. What we’re experiencing is the onset of an overspecialized, centralized system obsessed with control over individuals. The essence of what we are deep inside as humans at our core, that ‘ghost in the shell’, the spiritual radiance of the soul, how will it continue to thrive and evolve naturally under these conditions?

    Your only safe if your opinion is in agreement with the official Govt line!

    We all knew this was going to happen, and will only get worse. So what is the answer? Perhaps it’s time to change the idiots who we vote for! Saying that the system itself is fundamentally flawed… so instead it is time for a more radical solution!
