Men have always tended towards absolute power.
In history this usually begins small and ends large...or due to largess in the quest.
The tendency of men who know is always towards religious power. A demigod. A god we can see...god here on earth with absolute power.
The power of the Pharaohs was absolute. Not only in this world but in the next. The Popes power was the same thing. The Tsars power the same. The Divine Emperor the same.
It was the same for the Kings who's power was from the religious leaders...therefore their power was divine...from god..absolute power. To go against ones king was to go against god.
This was called in Western History ...Divine Right of Kings...absolute power.
It was in England under Oliver Cromwell and the Puritans where Divine Right of Kings was put to rest with the beheading of King Charles 1st in 1649.
This is the first time in history where a ordinary people had ever executed a king. This historically was very bad for the king club. This could not have happened in a Catholic nation.
Our leaders here in America knew the "Mischief " of men and particularly of men operating under Divine Right of Kings or absolute power.
This was their reason for the First Amendment and the doctrine of Separation of Church and State.
Here in America due to public ignorance and also Public Education non standards...Separation of Church and State has been modified by a Talmudic Ruling called
"The Exclusionary Rule."
What was intended as a limit on Government by the First Amendment has now been modified by a separate Talmudic Ruling (The Exclusionary Rule) which allows the government to reverse the process and put limits on the people.
This is the exact thing that the Founding Fathers wanted "Not " to happen. It is also a first step back to absolute power in the hands of government...religious power.
It is done by limiting the religious power of the people..not government. A total reversal of what was intended.
One by one..men operating through government as a front...are working to limit the people in their religious beliefs while expanding the power of government towards absolute power.
This is why in so many nations governments have gone deep into debt on the public purse.
They have squandered their power and authority. They have followed the gods of men...ie..mammon. This can not be accidental..but deliberate.
Ordinary peoples are not this stupid on their own. They can balance a budget. And remember...many of these government peoples have ...letters/degrees.
Understand now why I am so often ridiculing public education??
Absolute power is also the power to ruin a people..an economy....the monies of peoples.
Depreciating the currency is a sign of absolute power being squandered by publicly educated peoples. Depreciating..ie..inflation.
From John Maynard Keynes
Economic Consequences of the Peace. 1919.
Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens ... Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of over-turning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.
This is a tool in the direction of absolute power...in the hands of men to consolidate the power of money in the hands of men or whoever is the real government of a nation.
It is diametrically opposed to a system of just weights and measures as outlined in the Bible. The very antithesis of good money management. The antithesis of Biblical teaching.
To accomplish this intelligent educated wise men need to get people weaned off of their Biblical knowledge and backgrounds and supplant this with faith in men and mans education..away from Biblical principles.
It moves men more towards feudal control in the hands of government and away from men who earn their own monies and livings. To put people dependent on government.
This is what has happened so badly in the UK and attempting to take place here in the USA. Someone wants us here to follow the UK template of absolute power in everything in the hands of government. Where government controls everything ..cradle to grave..just like in Soviet Russia.
The tell tale sign of this power or control absolute in the hands of government is that peoples take first hand RISKS in earning their livings but receive second, third or futher down the line place..in their own nation to newly arrived peoples.
The natives become second class peoples to those on government handouts.
Government does this for power and control as these new peoples soon enough become voters.
A world turned upside down.
IN this new template of absolute power..the only one not restrained by Biblical principles is government. And you are now back to Divine Right of Kings...absolute power. Back to what Charles 1st was desiring to regain.
It is men who desire absolute power at1with0.
by John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, first Baron Acton (1834–1902)
"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men."
This is why we do not look to a man ..per se...demigod..but limit the natural mischeif of government or men. And government, through men, has worked very hard to break these chains...back towards absolute power..royalty...feudalism.
