Jack Abramoff Explains How Easy It Is To Buy A Congressman

Chris | InformationLiberation


This is a great clip from 60 minutes where Jack Abramoff explains how incredibly easy it is to buy a congressman. The piece is way too flattering to the guy, they act like he is some super genius. The idea that giving people hundreds of thousands of dollars of 'gifts' in the form of tickets to football games, trips to the best golf resorts in the world, etc., is some sort of genius plot to get the congress people to give you what you want is in no way shocking nor interesting, it's the logical result of the way "government" is organized. If you give one single organization a total monopoly on law & order, as well as the final say in every dispute, is it really such a difficult scenario to imagine such an all powerful organization would become "corrupt" overnight? Is it even corruption at that point? Is not the corrupt act giving total power to one gang of criminals to begin with? The idea you can appoint a gang of people as dictators then ask them to "limit their powers" and "be responsible" is completely delusional. Sometimes I can't help but laugh at how stupid the idea of a centrally planned state truly is. Of course, the conclusion to the piece is the state just needs to pass another law, yeah, I'm sure that will fix everything.

66212 The system - and other variations of government elsewhere in the world - just begs for buying/selling favors. When some individual or group of them are backed by a large number of enforcers - those who are willing to initiate physical force - many (?most?) will make use of that power to initiate or not laws/regulations/mandates/edicts/decrees/etc that work in their own or their friends' favor.

Alternative method for social order without government: "Social Meta-Needs: A New Basis for Optimal Interaction" - available online.
This treatise with its many links is not a breezy read - a warning for those looking for and used to soundbites on which to walk away with thinking that such bromides are really foundational and meaningful as a solution to serious social problems. Instead, the twin-framework implementations of the Social Meta-Needs theory - The Natural Social Contract and Social Preferencing - are envisioned as replacements for existing governments, all of which are described and regulated (in the US alone) via thousands of volumes and many millions (?billions?) of words enabling tens of thousands of lawyers to charge handsomely to serve as "gatekeepers" for the common folk.
