This Is How Tyranny Rises and Freedom Falls: The Experiment in Freedom Is Failing
By John W. Whitehead - October 22, 2017

“Every day I ask myself the same question: How can this be happening in America? How can people like these be in charge of our country? If I didn’t see it with my own eyes, I’d think I was having a hallucination.”—Philip Roth, novelist

It is easy to be distracted right now by the circus politics that have dominated the news headlines for the past year, but don’t be distracted.

Don’t be fooled, not even a little, no matter how tempting it seems to just take a peek.

We’re being subjected to the oldest con game in the books, the magician’s sleight of hand that keeps you focused on the shell game in front of you while your wallet is being picked clean by ruffians in your midst.

This is how tyranny rises and freedom falls.

What characterizes American government today is not so much dysfunctional politics as it is ruthlessly contrived governance carried out behind the entertaining, distracting and disingenuous curtain of political theater. And what political theater it is, diabolically Shakespearean at times, full of sound and fury, yet in the end, signifying nothing.

We are being ruled by a government of scoundrels, spies, thugs, thieves, gangsters, ruffians, rapists, extortionists, bounty hunters, battle-ready warriors and cold-blooded killers who communicate using a language of force and oppression.

Our nation of sheep has, as was foretold, given rise to a government of wolves.

The U.S. government now poses the greatest threat to our freedoms.

More than terrorism, more than domestic extremism, more than gun violence and organized crime, even more than the perceived threat posed by any single politician, the U.S. government remains a greater menace to the life, liberty and property of its citizens than any of the so-called dangers from which the government claims to protect us.

This has been true of virtually every occupant of the White House in recent years.

Unfortunately, nothing has changed for the better since Donald Trump ascended to the Oval Office.

Indeed, Trump may be the smartest move yet by the powers-that-be to keep the citizenry divided and at each other’s throats, because as long as we’re busy fighting each other, we’ll never manage to present a unified front against tyranny in any form.

As American satirist H.L. Mencken predicted almost a century ago:

“All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

In other words, nothing has changed, folks.

The facts speak for themselves.

We’re being robbed blind by a government of thieves. Americans no longer have any real protection against government agents empowered to seize private property at will. For instance, police agencies under the guise of asset forfeiture laws are taking Americans’ personal property based on little more than a suspicion of criminal activity and keeping it for their own profit and gain. In one case, police seized $53,000 from the manager of a Christian rock bandthat was touring and raising money for an orphanage in Thailand. Despite finding no evidence of wrongdoing, police kept the money. Homeowners are losing their homes over nonpayment of taxes (for as little as $400 owed) and municipal bills such as water or sewer fees that amount to a fraction of what they have invested in their homes. And then there’s the Drug Enforcement Agency, which has been searching train and airline passengers and pocketing their cash, without ever charging them with a crime.

We’re being taken advantage of by a government of scoundrels, idiots and cowards. Mencken calculated that “Congress consists of one-third, more or less, scoundrels; two-thirds, more or less, idiots; and three-thirds, more or less, poltroons.” By and large, Americans seem to agree. When you’ve got government representatives who spend a large chunk of their work hours fundraising, being feted by lobbyists, shuffling through a lucrative revolving door between public service and lobbying, and making themselves available to anyone with enough money to secure access to a congressional office, you’re in the clutches of a corrupt oligarchy. Mind you, these same elected officials rarely read the legislation they’re enacting, nor do they seem capable of enacting much legislation that actually helps the plight of the American citizen. More often than not, the legislation lands the citizenry in worse straits.

We’re being locked up by a government of greedy jailers. We have become a carceral state, spending three times more on our prisons than on our schools and imprisoning close to a quarter of the world’s prisoners, despite the fact that crime is at an all-time low and the U.S. makes up only 5% of the world’s population. The rise of overcriminalization and profit-driven private prisons provides even greater incentives for locking up American citizens for such non-violent “crimes” as having an overgrown lawn.  As the Boston Review points out, “America’s contemporary system of policing, courts, imprisonment, and parole … makes money through asset forfeiture, lucrative public contracts from private service providers, and by directly extracting revenue and unpaid labor from populations of color and the poor. In states and municipalities throughout the country, the criminal justice system defrays costs by forcing prisoners and their families to pay for punishment. It also allows private service providers to charge outrageous fees for everyday needs such as telephone calls. As a result people facing even minor criminal charges can easily find themselves trapped in a self-perpetuating cycle of debt, criminalization, and incarceration.”

We’re being spied on by a government of Peeping Toms. The government is watching everything you do, reading everything you write, listening to everything you say, and monitoring everything you spend. Omnipresent surveillance is paving the way for government programs that profile citizens, document their behavior and attempt to predict what they might do in the future, whether it’s what they might buy, what politician they might support, or what kinds of crimes they might commit. The impact of this far-reaching surveillance, according to Psychology Today, is “reduced trust, increased conformity, and even diminished civic participation.” As technology analyst Jillian C. York concludes, “Mass surveillance without due process—whether undertaken by the government of Bahrain, Russia, the US, or anywhere in between—threatens to stifle and smother that dissent, leaving in its wake a populace cowed by fear.”

We’re being ravaged by a government of ruffians, rapists and killers. It’s not just the police shootings of unarmed citizens that are worrisome. It’s the SWAT team raids gone wrongmore than 80,000 annually—that are leaving innocent citizens wounded, children terrorized and family pets killed. It’s the roadside strip searches—in some cases, cavity searches of men and women alike carried out in full view of the public—in pursuit of drugs that are never found. It’s the potentially lethal—and unwarranted—use of so-called “nonlethal” weapons such as tasers on children for “mouthing off to a police officer. For trying to run from the principal’s office. For, at the age of 12, getting into a fight with another girl.”

We’re being forced to surrender our freedoms—and those of our children—to a government of extortionists, money launderers and professional pirates. The American people have repeatedly been sold a bill of goods about how the government needs more money, more expansive powers, and more secrecy (secret courts, secret budgets, secret military campaigns, secret surveillance) in order to keep us safe. Under the guise of fighting its wars on terror, drugs and now domestic extremism, the government has spent billions in taxpayer dollars on endless wars that have notended terrorism but merely sown the seeds of blowback, surveillance programs that have caught few terrorists while subjecting all Americans to a surveillance society, and militarized police that have done little to decrease crime while turning communities into warzones. Not surprisingly, the primary ones to benefit from these government exercises in legal money laundering have been the corporations, lobbyists and politicians who inflict them on a trusting public.

We’re being held at gunpoint by a government of soldiers: a standing army. As if it weren’t enough that the American military empire stretches around the globe (and continues to leech much-needed resources from the American economy), the U.S. government is creating its own standing army of militarized police and teams of weaponized bureaucrats. These civilian employees are being armed to the hilt with guns, ammunition and military-style equipment; authorized to make arrests; and trained in military tactics. Among the agencies being supplied with night-vision equipment, body armor, hollow-point bullets, shotguns, drones, assault rifles and LP gas cannons are the Smithsonian, U.S. Mint, Health and Human Services, IRS, FDA, Small Business Administration, Social Security Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Education Department, Energy Department, Bureau of Engraving and Printing and an assortment of public universities. There are now reportedly more bureaucratic (non-military) government civilians armed with high-tech, deadly weapons than U.S. Marines. That doesn’t even begin to touch on the government’s arsenal, the transformation of local police into extensions of the military, and the speed with which the nation could be locked down under martial law depending on the circumstances.

Whatever else it may be—a danger, a menace, a threat—the U.S. government is certainly no friend to freedom.

To our detriment, the criminal class that Mark Twain mockingly referred to as Congress has since expanded to include every government agency that feeds off the carcass of our once-constitutional republic.

The government and its cohorts have conspired to ensure that the only real recourse the American people have to hold the government accountable or express their displeasure with the government is through voting, which is no real recourse at all.

Consider it: the penalties for civil disobedience, whistleblowing and rebellion are severe. If you refuse to pay taxes for government programs you believe to be immoral or illegal, you will go to jail. If you attempt to overthrow the government—or any agency thereof—because you believe it has overstepped its reach, you will go to jail. If you attempt to blow the whistle on government misconduct, you will go to jail. In some circumstances, if you even attempt to approach your elected representative to voice your discontent, you can be arrested and jailed.

You cannot have a republican form of government—nor a democratic one, for that matter—when the government views itself as superior to the citizenry, when it no longer operates for the benefit of the people, when the people are no longer able to peacefully reform their government, when government officials cease to act like public servants, when elected officials no longer represent the will of the people, when the government routinely violates the rights of the people and perpetrates more violence against the citizenry than the criminal class, when government spending is unaccountable and unaccounted for, when the judiciary act as courts of order rather than justice, and when the government is no longer bound by the laws of the Constitution.

For too long, the American people have obeyed the government’s dictates, no matter how unjust.

We have paid its taxes, penalties and fines, no matter how outrageous. We have tolerated its indignities, insults and abuses, no matter how egregious. We have turned a blind eye to its indiscretions and incompetence, no matter how imprudent. We have held our silence in the face of its lawlessness, licentiousness and corruption, no matter how illicit.

Oh how we have suffered.

How long we will continue to suffer depends on how much we’re willing to give up for the sake of freedom.

It may well be that Professor Morris Berman is correct: perhaps we are entering into the dark ages that signify the final phase of the American Empire. “It seems to me,” writes Berman, “that the people do get the government they deserve, and even beyond that, the government who they are, so to speak. In that regard, we might consider, as an extreme version of this… that Hitler was as much an expression of the German people at that point in time as he was a departure from them.”

For the moment, the American people seem content to sit back and watch the reality TV programming that passes for politics today. It’s the modern-day equivalent of bread and circuses, a carefully calibrated exercise in how to manipulate, polarize, propagandize and control a population.

As French philosopher Etienne de La Boétie observed half a millennium ago:

“Plays, farces, spectacles, gladiators, strange beasts, medals, pictures, and other such opiates, these were for ancient peoples the bait toward slavery, the price of their liberty, the instruments of tyranny. By these practices and enticements the ancient dictators so successfully lulled their subjects under the yoke, that the stupefied peoples, fascinated by the pastimes and vain pleasures flashed before their eyes, learned subservience as naively, but not so creditably, as little children learn to read by looking at bright picture books.”

The bait towards slavery. The price of liberty. The instruments of tyranny.

Yes, that sounds about right.

“We the people” have learned only too well how to be slaves. Worse, we have come to enjoy our voluntary servitude, which masquerades as citizenship.

Unfortunately, as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we won’t be able to sustain this fiction much longer.

“Things fall apart,” wrote W.B. Yeats in his dark, forbidding poem “The Second Coming.” “The centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world… Surely some revelation is at hand.”

Wake up, America, and break free of your chains.

Biggest Currency Reboot in 100 Years?
In less than 3 months, the biggest reboot to the U.S. dollar in 100 years could sweep America.
It has to do with a quiet potential government agreement you’ve never heard about.

  • Charles Rolison

    Who come you having covered or talked about this guy

  • jill_friedman

    excellent piece, and all of it is true. I only wish the majority of people would wake up and DO something to stop this abuse.

    • Ethercruiser One


    • Most of it is more or less accurate, but some was a bit over done in certain events as if all mentioned are daily regular events which they are not. But I do agree even occasional extreme bad acts from these control freaks is far too much, especially when most never get punished for their bad acts.

      Let me point out what are obvious government control mechanisms and events happening today ! And this is just one example of many serious bad acts. During the Ferguson false paradigm of little Mikey and “hands up don’t shoot” , which never even happened, we saw another protest take place in Burns Oregon. The events in Ferguson led to the creation of the group called Black Lives Matter. And they went on to spur considerable violence in numerous cities like Baltimore, St Louis and numerous others. The violence was ramped up quite deliberately by Barrack Obama and Lynch to create racial animus all based on a false narrative and a lie. In fact defacto permission was given by the BHO regime to create havoc and destroy property as you see fit because you are justified in your created grievance. As well many were accosted and seriously injured by BLM and a few were even killed from these maniacs our own government helped create. All the while out in Oregon, Bundy and crew were protesting a government agency that had gone out of control and was seriously abusing local citizens and their property and ability to make a living. The protestors at Burns never harmed anybody nor did they destroy or harm any property. They never threatened not even one person. Yet PRAVDA/MSM created an atmosphere that they were considered extremist and very dangerous criminals. The truth was and still is that the extreme false paradigm of Black Lives Matter, as some how the good guys or freedom fighters, yet the Bundy crew committed no crimes at all that the BLM people committed . Not even one event ! And the end result was the murder of Finicum by our own government while Black Lives Matter was burning down cities and attacking people openly in numerous cities.

      Now stop and consider these dichotomies and extreme double standards. What would happen if the same exact treatment of any of the Black Lives Matter people were applied, that was given to Finicum ? And why are the Bundy crew still in the clutches of a corrupt judicial system and being tried numerous times for the same offenses redundantly ? Did anything even remotely similar happen to any of the people who burned down cities and harmed many people ? And realize all of this was happening at the same time !

      The double standards present in our government today are beyond insane and obtrusive. It is out of control what they can get away with blatantly. It has become obvious people at the highest echelons of government are simply criminals in disguise. Comey, Hillary and Bill, Holder, Lynch, Umah, Weiner, DWS, Podesta, Koskinen, L Lerner and many others to include Obama, have committed many crimes that are well known and much evidence is clearly available to their crimes. Yet they all walk freely and the crimes continue daily ! Our government has become a giant criminal enterprise and nothing less with a large dose of created racial animus tossed in for good affect ! For whatever reason the democrats seem to control the deep state apparatus today that is actually running our government. I realize the right or republicans have also run the deep state prior and made their own serious bad acts and crimes.This is how it all works. Whoever is in power at the time can greatly influence all of the government agencies to do as they please and Obama and crew put it all on steroids beyond anything we have ever seen in history ! Mainly because of the electronic communications age we now live under with many control mechanisms intact. Mechanisms like social media and Google, FB and Twitter as well as many others. All were deliberately created as control mechanisms and part of PRAVDA/MSM. That is why PRAVDA/MSM has become so incredibly powerful. They are now simply the propaganda arm of the deep state apparatus ! That is their job and function to propagandize and mind eff the populace and they do it quite easily and quite well with many false narratives and false paradigms created or simply ignoring crimes committed by the people they are protecting and promoting.

      As I mentioned, these are just a few of the extreme events we have been forced and manipulated to endure. There are many more ! These links help clarify all of it for any who are in fact actually willing to think and then act !

      I will say what most will not say in plain english ! Part of the problem we all face today with our out of control government is simply that we allowed it all to happen. We were all far too complacent because we were in fact spoiled from having too much too easy. We let various forms of materialism become our God and that was the tool used to control us ! In fact many Americans have become fat, dumb, lazy apathetic and cowardly ! So we are part of the problem ourselves and that is part of the equation we must consider and look at going forward. We have allowed these criminals to dominate us in a multitude of ways. And the truth is we have all the power not them ! We have simply been convinced and coerced that we do not have the power. Our power is the power of the purse and the mind ! We can simply stop paying to get effed by criminals and regain our thinking capacities and common sense. This is how we can demand accountability and it all starts inside each of us individually.

    Yevgeny Zamiatian was not read in schools…. too bad, he knew first hand of communism and new world order

    • hangloop

      People are not willing to listen to the wisdom that people who lived under the Soviet union wish to impart. Instead they claim communism hasn’t been done correctly yet.. They live in a fantasy world.

  • Praetor

    Sound like the only way to rectify the situation is revolution and civil war. This article offers no solutions. It sounds like this guy wants the, ‘We The People’ pick-up arms and go put down the rapid animal called government. Does he realize how many will die, it’s not pitchforks and shovels we are talking about. It may come to this. There are other ways, take you’re freedom and liberty personally, take it into your hands. No one can change the final outcome, you can only deal with it, prepare and survive. Separate yourself from the collective.!!!

    • @Praetor … not a ‘civil war’ … a War of Restoration …

    • hangloop

      That is THE nightmare scenario.

    • Number 6

      “separate yourself from the collective” who says you cant have a collective of people who refuse to give their money to government. It seems to me thats exactly what you do want, a collective of Liberal Capitalists, Otherwise its divide and conquer mission accomplished for the religious supremacists who are pulling the strings.

      And theres no need for civil war, just mass disobedience and people need to “collectively” stop paying tax, they cant fund the thugs collecting the cash without tax payers money. This is what they fear why do you think they use the media to propagandise everyone into paying their tax and being good little citizens ? Take for example the BBC licence fee here in the UK for years they told everyone using television ads, that they had TV detector vans which could magically tell if you were watching TV without a licence, a ludicrous lie, but why make this silly claim ? Why because they simply couldn’t police it, they didn’t have the numbers to even pursue 5% of people refusing to pay. today Record numbers of people are refusing to pay their licence fee, The BBC’s response, a post code check when using the BBC iPlayer to see if you have a licence fee and trying to get the TV Licence tacked onto the council tax, which currently has a lower percentage of dissenters. Its rule by Lies and illusion nothing more.

      • Praetor

        That is one way of looking at it! The basic collective the family is full of intimate known individuals and there be problem within that basic collective. Any collective only means collecting cash, if you have you’re money in a bank the collective already has you’re money, the collective can take it any time they want. So not paying today, does not mean you want pay tomorrow. The people in Britain seem to be stuck on an island.!!!

        • Number 6

          Well I think most visitors to this site would agree that the Banks Government and the media are the same entity, so why do you assume that not paying tax means you will have your money in a bank, it seems to me anyone thinking of not paying tax certainly isn’t going to go through the banking system, its called cash in hand, perhaps the new saying will be gold in hand, assuming we don’t come up with an alternative I owe you system, which doesn’t involve paying the tribe by offering our children as future slaves, for the privilege of using their paper. Having a collective isn’t a problem its how civilisation with or without the parasites was built, you cant be truely self sufficient without trade and cooperation and you need a system of I owe you’s to make that trade work fairly and efficiently. The problem lies not with the collective but with those within it who think they have a greater right over other peoples lives than they do and who not only steal other people I owe you’s they control the printing of them, to such people a “goy slave” – “collective” is “prophecy

          • Praetor

            Very convoluted statement and hating Jews doesn’t move it much further along.!!!

          • Number 6

            Who said anything about hating Jews ? What precisely have I said there which implies Jews are to blame or that I hate them ????

          • Praetor

            “goy slaves” what is that? “collective” is “prophecy” again what is that?

            The collectivists us any faction that gains them ultimate power and all collectivists are totalitarian in the end. The collectivists are banks government media and as the article points out, they also will us capitalism to gain their ultimate objective tyrannical power.!!!

          • Number 6

            “goy slave” “prophesy” I dont know you tell me what it means and why you think its connected specifically with the Jews.

            And You seem to be giving people the option of either excepting serfdom or leaving society completely. Your now suggesting those who don’t accept serfdom not even engage in FREE trade between one another ie capitalism.

            Because despite government and the medias clear attempts to give capitalism a bad name and destroy free trade amongst the peasantry and giving themselves a decidedly un-capitalist anti free trade monopoly (corporatism communism same end goal) capitalism is according to you their domain too. No its not !!!! their goal is to destroy it through government legislation taxation and tax subsidies to their crony corporations. Legislation, taxation and subsidisation is not capitalism ie FREE trade they are not using it they are clearly trying to destroy it !

  • Dimitri Ledkovsky

    What’s worse is that we are educated to be intolerant of countries and nationalities that do not emulate us.

    • Don Duncan

      “…do not emulate us.”?? All nations are fundamentally the same, i.e., all are authoritarian, based on the initiation of violence, threat thereof, and fraud.

      The “intolerance” is a distraction, the creation of a fake enemy, while the real enemy of society is societies’ worship of authority.

    Fixing this mess will be a process, trump is one step in that direction and at this point he’s still settling in.. So let’s see what he can or is willing to do and make some changes in the upcoming elections and try to get people elected that are willing to work for the advancement of the American people regardless of their gender or race or religious preferences….

    • Alan777

      You echo my sentiments, Trump is a step in the right direction. We absolutely need a breakup of our PC media, culture, education system, and government which allows no difference of opinion and stifles our liberties as we descend into a sort of racist-fascist-communist type of weird illogical system. Cutting back on the budgets of the government bureacracies and forcing them to downsize is probably the most effective thing we can do at the moment as Trump is trying to do at least in some areas.

    • Xkeyscore

      Trump himself supports the unconstitutional Civil Asset and Forfeiture.
      Trump and his administration reinstated the Pentagons 1033 program to increase the arming of civilian domestic police with military equipment and weapons thereby making them a standing army and an extension of the military. This is to circumvent Posse Comutatis.

      • hangloop

        Didnt bushie bush do that directly after 9/11?

  • A very good statement of the problem, but no solution is offered nor even hinted at. “Wake up, America, and break free of your chains” is NOT a personal action plan–preppers have better plans!

    Depressing read!

      Whitehead seems to expend much angst weeping over the idea that collectivism cannot be “fixed”. Like, “it” was once fine, but has gone to hell in a hand-basket.

    This is the results of the bought out biased medias propaganda LIES, especially government propaganda LIES, paid by you know who !, the long, long corrupt government that Americans are blind with patriotism to a long, long, corrupt repubs and especially democraps! The medias cause Americans to prop up celebrities and politicians and let them get away with anything!. The biased medias create and cause both snowflakes to riot anything anti-American or President Trump, and diversity is code for anything anti-white and/or black and American and who know what is next!? all this does is helping terrorist to destroy this nation by division. Also raising Americans to hate there country, who will defend it in the future?

    “Every day I ask myself the same question: How can this be happening in America? How
    can people like these be in charge of our country? If I didn’t see it
    with my own eyes, I’d think I was having a hallucination.”—Philip Roth,

    A cycle has 360 degrees. Every empire has risen and fallen.

    The U.S. hasn’t been the same, since the day it was founded. It was 13 colonies, then 13 states, then grew over time to 50. There was a civil war that changed the country. After “manifest destiny” the U.S. moved out into the world to eventually become the worlds only super power, rising to the zenith of a cycle.

    George Washington and Thomas Jefferson gave way to Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama and Trump.

    Freedom is really an illusion. Washington put down the whiskey rebellion. Lincoln put down the rebellion of the southern states and drafted “free” people in order to accomplish that. Towns grew into cities and with that came regulation as to what was acceptable for city dwellers to do. Then there were things like morals laws, which prohibited certain behavior.

    Political cycles swing back and forth, as nothing stays the same. Obama declared “we won the culture war,” but cycles never stop moving. When something goes too far, the pendulum pushes back the other way. That Trump was elected, is a great example of that.

  • Leonidas

    It all started on Nov. 22, 1963. Or did it? Perhaps it all started on Dec. 23, 1913. I supposed BANKER John J. McCloy and Prescott BUSH would likely know the answer.

    What is the ONE paragraph, that will CHANGE EVERY THING you THOUGHT you KNEW about who ~ ACTUALLY ~ ASSASSINATED JFK? Here it is:

    Question: What do Richard M. Nixon (former Vice-President under Eisenhower),
    LBJ (Vice-President under JFK), Allen Dulles (former Director of the CIA, fired by JFK, after the “Bay of Pigs” debacle), Cord Meyer (LBJ’s “Man” at the CIA, and with whose ex-wife JFK had an affair!), George H.W. BUSH (CIA & Texas OIL-man) , David Morales (CIA), E. Howard Hunt (CIA), Frank Sturgis (CIA), MARITA LORENZ (CIA), Lee Harvey Oswald (CIA/FBI), and Mafia Pilot David Ferrie all share in common? Answer: Their involvement in one or more aspects of the NSC (National Security
    Council) 5412 Committee’s (CIA) “Operation 40” to ASSASSINATE Cuba’s
    Fidel Castro.
