The land of many Kings…

Who said we were a democracy?

“While often categorized as a democracy, the United States is more accurately defined as a constitutional federal republic.”

“The major difference between a democracy and a republic is that a republic is a form of government whereas a democracy is an ideology that helps shape how a government is run. Put another way: a republic is the system of government that allows a country to be democratic!”

“Government rule by the rich or power provided by wealth, often used to describe a wealthy class ruling a government, often from behind the scenes.”
So, from behind the scenes huh? Meaning, you don’t know who or how they control the government? That sounds like what we have.

We don’t have mob rule. That would be a true reflection of a democracy. The mob wants and the mob gets. But that is not what we have.
In most visible ways, we do have a republic. But there are things that go on behind the scenes that we are not aware or made aware of. For instance, the government did not publish what they know about Aliens. But those in power are aware.
How many times has a politician said they would do something, only to be elected and do the exact opposite? Too many times to count.

I would define a different type of government rule under which we are governed. Let’s call it “The land of many kings”. Those in power get their way. We have kings of media, left and right, we have kings of the internet, social networking, oil, food, water, Education, law and order, and we have kings of religion as well. The list seems endless. But these are the people in power. These are the people that wield influence. These are the people that plot our course. Not “We the people”.

If you want to help navigate our foreign and domestic policy, the answer is simple. Become rich and own a monopoly. Then you can be like Bill Gates and run around as the emperor of knowledge on any topic you like, influencing the government in any way you choose. Or manipulate currencies and governments like George Soros.

We are not a true Democracy. In many ways, we are not a republic either. Maybe a mix of technocracy and fascism. In a land of many kings, people like Bill Gates, Soros, Zuckerberg, Besos, Pichai, and many unknowns have influence over our media and tell them what to push, and thus manipulate public knowledge and opinion.

By the time you wake up and smell the coffee, you are in your sixties and too old to make a difference. Death comes knocking, and the young easily manipulated college students make all the noise.

It’s good to be in a country that is rich and powerful. Probably will never change. But who doesn’t want to call it what it really is?
