we need to undermine the bureaucracy at every turn...
What you are describing is trying to fight within the system. We can't- because it isn't in our nature. Could you- as politically motivated as you are, take a civil service job in some nameless bureaucracy, serve faithfully the number of years required to get into a position of power without being corrupted by the culture around you, and enduring the presence and stupidity of those around you, and then sabotage the system in such a way that ensures it cannot function but still leaves you at the levers of power? Soon as the apparatus needs something you can't (or won't) deliver, those with the levers levers above you would have you removed, and you would have only bought time. And if you choose to deliver on the important stuff, then the apparatus won't care you have stopped thier little machine. They have 7 duplicate agencies that accomplish the same - they will just fund those and not you. You cannot threaten them, because the entire system is based on the politics of pull - and they decide how much pull you have. The machine can only be attacked from the top - and our supposed leaders, Mittens included, are unwilling to do so - because ultimately they feed at the same trough, and are corrupted by the same influences you would be steeped in in some lower position. Power Corrupts, and we haven't many hobbits.
But the Bureaucracy undermines itself. The economic realities alone ensure the failure of the current systems. Exposing their operation does little to nothing to correct the problem. Democrats don't care what evils their leaders do - everything is justified in furthering the great cause. They always sow the seeds of their own destruction. They fight change. look at the comments here!
Those Evil Capitalists "exploit" their workers, but using robotic labor that frees them from exploitation is more evil still!) Bureaucracies always become insular and self-serving and static - Tribal in nature. Why DHS? Because the FBI and CIA didn't ( wouldn't) share info with each other. The liberal quest is ALWAYS to form a bigger and bigger tribe, and to kill and enslave "the outsider", the "hater." But such systems can only regulate productive work - not generate it. They are parasites that inevitably kill the host.
"Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as "bad luck."
Probably the most important political fact ever stated. They intend to , and will succeed at, reducing us to abject poverty and their systems, which rely on unparalleled growth and prosperity , will collapse. This is a risky time, but historically Bureaucracies are bad at dealing with that sort of environment. The "Extend and Pretend" monetary policy is indicative of the reluctance to change, modify or adapt. So are the desperate attempts of townships and counties to cut off streetlights, cops (Bloomberg!), schools and firefighting services, rather than deal with the pensions or welfare programs which protect and fund the "in-group" - And desperation is what it is. The more foresighted among them see the coming catastrophe, and with that crisis they see the opportunity to fully conquer us - but they are not in such control that victory is assured. When the economy goes, they loose much of their power. Martial Law will be a desperate attempt to seize and retain power when the other systems they use implode. (How many of these self-serving, paper pushing, self-important, entitlement mentality barbarian bureaucrats will say at their desks being paid in useless script?) They will resort to extorting payment in Bribe form. The military will become mercenary in nature, and will have to be paid in rape and stolen booty, and taking such will be resisted. The mask of a benevolent Nanny will of necessity be ripped off - and those that are capable of being woken, will awake, and the game is on. They will, of course, try to take that mask off as slowly as possible, and try to slow the collapse- using their standard "boil the frog" approach. However, the ammo and hardware they are purchasing tells me that they are not at all confident of their abilities.
We are at a point where the only way back is through the maelstrom, and its going to be a rough, unpredictable ride. Become as self-sufficient and low profile as possible. Connect with the like minded, and get ready for anything.
