Truth, Lies, Deception, Secrecy and Coverups - Democracy under Fire
Like many others, I've only recently awakened to the assault on democracy and civil liberties the world over.
The Blogs I post are for educational purposes - to inform the public of relevant details regarding the truth of what is happening in governments the world over - and to encourage positive peaceful change.
An informed public is powerful. But authoritarian rulers do not want the public to be informed. They lie, deceive, mislead and operate in secrecy to hide actions that would alarm or disgust the public and/or are not to the benefit of the public.
Informing the public of the truth has become a battle between right versus might; truth versus lies and deception; transparency versus secrecy and coverups.
Democracy and civil liberties are under fire from within in many countries - by some of our own elected representatives, as well as some powerful government administrators and those in power in the military-industrial-surveillance complex - who want to consolidate and grow their power base nationally and internationally.
Mass surveillance, propaganda, censorship and entrenched government secrecy are being used to disempower the public and provide the power elite with unwarranted authority and control over the public.
Democracy and civil liberties are also under threat from the masterminds behind the financial sector - whose deliberate, calculated wheeling and dealing has likely resulted in the rise and fall of economies. These money monarchs likely also have substantial control over governments the world over because of what they can do that would influence the value of investments or level of loans of various countries.
The political whipping system is another major threat to the democratic process - that should be seriously curtailed or abolished.
The consequence of these factors has been evolution of so-called democratic governments run by administrations who dance to the tune of the rich and powerful and ignore the consequences of policies and law changes on the general public.
We are being more and more ruled by an elite group who would lie to and deceive the public without blinking an eye, turn a blind eye to wrong-doing, and who are lacking in trustworthiness and integrity. Knowledge based on truth brings power. This Blog is about raising awareness of the true consequences of government policies, actions and law changes - and to encourage a focus on policies actions and law respectful of democracy, civil liberties and human rights.
