The Degeneracy Of Law And Order

The Rise of the Praetorian Class

The Praetorian Class includes members of the Armed Services, federal, state and local law enforcement personnel as well as numerous militarized officials including agents from the DEA, Immigrations, Customs Enforcement, Air Marshalls, US Marshalls, and more. It also includes, although to a lesser extent, various stage actors in the expanding security theater such as TSA personnel. The main mission of the Praetorian Class is to keep the order of the day. This requires displaying an intimidating presence in their interactions with the Economic Class.

As the Praetorian Class ascends, the clear, albeit unstated, message that emerges is that actions and events in the Economic Class only occur with its tacit consent. Whether driving on roads, traveling in the air, visiting public land, walking down the street or even living in your own home, every action you take is predicated on its permission. By preconditioning the populace to enforcement of its edicts, most of which are completely arbitrary, the Praetorian Class sets itself up for a high degree of autonomy in its actions. This is confirmed by the fact that consequences for malfeasance within the Praetorian Class are almost never observed, and when it happens, it typically becomes a grotesque spectacle in which one of their own is sacrificed as an example, so as to keep appearances of effective internal controls.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

Probably the most important thing you will read this year.

    Now when I watch “It’s a Wonderful Life”, the only hero I see is the guy who tells the bankster/”hero”: “I deposited $250 and I want every cent of it!”…bankster/hero of the movie says “now, uh, can’t you just take $25 or whateve ryou need for the day?” and the guy tells him to eff himself. Obviously, I’m paraphrasing. I never can watch this movie with the same appreciation I did as a kid.

      George Bailey was NOT a bankster. The Building Savings & Loan was a CO-OP. It was OWNED by the DEPOSITORS. Potter BOUGHT the bank.

    I was re-watching it recently and felt a new fondness for Potter. Unlike the banksters of today, he new risk when he saw it.
