Ineptocracy 2012

Ineptocracy - Government of, for, and by the eaters and takers

Ineptocracy is a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

More concisely and poetically, it’s government of the eaters and takers, by eaters and takers, for the eaters and takers.

If you, due to your personal abilities and resulting circumstances, favor such a form of government, by all means vote for your boy, Obama on Tuesday. Ineptocracy and Obama are what best suits your life. If, on the other hand, you prefer a democratic republic based upon the principle of meritocracy, you’d be better off, as will your children and your children’s children, voting against Obama by casting your vote for Mitt Romney.

Of course, if you do choose to vote against the most ineptocratic POTUS in American history, you are essentially saying that you want Romney to “Take us back” since wise men have long held that ineptocracy was the progressive result of democracy.

Freedom’s Fatal Sequence

Freedom is always transitory for any People; it follows a historically well established cycle of rise and fall. It moves from bondage, to freedom and affluence, and back to bondage again.

The Tytler Cycle aka The Fatal Sequence
The Fatal Sequence Known As The Tytler Cycle

Progression through the Fatal Sequence that leads to the death of all democracies a smooth and measured march towards entropy. It seems, if history is any judge, to happen in fits and starts with societies staying at one point then lurching forward again.

Interestingly, the Tytler Cycle was no part of Lord Woodhouselee, Alexander Fraser Tytler’s written works though it does perfectly fit them, especially his Universal History.

Where America is within the Tytler Cycle is open to some debate. This is, in no small part, because of a trend started in the latter half of the twentieth century to divide and fragment America for the dubious sake of cultural diversity. America being now more than one People is at multiple points in the cycle – but all are further along the path back to Bondage than Liberty –> Abundance.

Can we move backward along the path of the Tytler Cycle? I think it’s possible. Will we as a people do so? I doubt it; it doesn’t seem to be in human nature to do so.
