The Fakest Fake

The democracies are fakes. They are empires. Dying empires, growing empires, wannabe empires or tentacles of an empire, such as the countries within the North Atlantic Empire.

Democracies reflect the will of the majority. That’s it. If the majority is suffering and a tiny minority flourishing, all claims of democracy are full of fake, regardless of the extravagance of the voting circuses. 

“The world’s 85 richest individuals possess as much wealth as the 3.5 billion souls who compose the poorer half of the world’s population.” Oxfam International, 2014

“The world’s richest 1% have more than twice as much wealth as 6.9 billion people.” Oxfam International, 2021

These two comparisons of inequality from Oxfam are similar to any country among the world’s fake democracies.

Empires are enterprises of conquest characterized by violence, destruction and death on the way up, and violence, destruction as death on the way down. Always. No exceptions.

Empires are the most consistent pattern of Homo sapiens’ development since the first word of history.

Empires are ruled by emperors. Rulers, not leaders. The may call themselves Pharaohs, Kings, Shoguns, Presidents, Prime Ministers, Whatevers. They are rulers, often part of an imperial council, but rulers, emperors.

One doesn’t talk power to emperors. One talks to the people. About empires. And tells them that democratic community ownership determines the health and wealth of people.

Health is wealth. Security is wealth. Peace is wealth. Friendship is wealth. Freedom is wealth. Love is wealth. Respect is wealth. Justice is wealth. Nourishment is wealth. Knowledge is wealth. Love is wealth. Education is wealth. Solidarity is wealth. Laughter is wealth. Kindness is wealth. Motivation is wealth. Employment is wealth. Truth is wealth. Love is wealth. Trust is wealth. Opportunity is wealth. Happiness is wealth. Honesty is wealth. Love is wealth.

They listen to private power and read private power’s press,

never learning that private power

is built of their collective powerlessness.
