The ideal form of governance
In the Republic, the character of Socrates outlines an ideal city-state which he calls ‘Kallipolis’.
Classes in ideal society
Plato lists three classes in his ideal society.
- Producers or Workers: The laborers who make the goods and services in the society.
- Auxiliaries/Soldiers: Those who keep order in the society and protect it from invaders
- Guardians (Philosopher kings) — those who are the most intelligent, rational, self-controlled, in love with wisdom, and well suited to make decisions for the community, and who promote the interests of the society as a whole.
Plato’s ideal rulers are philosopher-kings. Not only are they the most wise, but they are also virtuous and selfless. To combat corruption, Plato’s Socrates suggests that the rulers would live simply and communally. Contrary to societal values at the time, Socrates suggests that sex should not be a factor in deciding who should rule, so women as well as men can rule. Socrates proposes that the Guardians should mate and reproduce, and that the children will be raised communally rather than by their biological parents. The children’s biological parents will never be known to them, so that no Guardian will prefer his or her own offspring over the common good. The children of the guardian class will be tested, and only the most wise and virtuous will become rulers.
Karl Popper blamed Plato for the rise of totalitarianism in the 20th century, seeing Plato’s philosopher kings, with their dreams of ‘social engineering‘ and ‘idealism‘, as leading directly to Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin (via Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and Karl Marx respectively).
Written by the Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza, the Tractatus Theologico-Politicus (TTP) or Theologico-Political Treatise was one of the most controversial texts of the early modern period. It was a preemptive defense[clarification needed] of Spinoza’s later work, Ethics, published posthumously in 1677, for which he anticipated harsh criticism.
Monarchy, Aristocracy, and Democracy
Spinoza discusses the principal kinds of states, or the main types of government, namely, Monarchy, Aristocracy, and Democracy. Each has its own peculiarities and needs special safeguards, if it is to realise the primary function of a state. Monarchy may degenerate into Tyranny unless it is subjected to various constitutional checks which will prevent any attempt at autocracy. Similarly, Aristocracy may degenerate into Oligarchy and needs analogous checks. On the whole, Spinoza favours Democracy, by which he meant any kind of representative government. In the case of Democracy the community and the government are more nearly identical than in the case of Monarchy or Aristocracy; consequently a democracy is least likely to experience frequent collisions between the people and the government and so is best adapted to secure and maintain that peace, which it is the business of the state to secure.
Inspired loosely by the philosophies of Aristotle and of Plato respectively, these two persuasions of purloining bloodline élitists and their technocratic hangers-on have been wrestling over the juicy prize of Britain and our diaspora for at least three centuries. (In a nutshell, the Aristotelians justify their rule by reference to religious notions and the Platonists do so by promising prosperity.) Alex will provide background on the Aristotelians’ and Platonists’ creeds and methods, focusing on post-Second World War developments and on Britain, as called for by the AV9.1 agenda. In a way, this talk will complete what he set out at AV9, particularly answering the questions he left hanging of what the prime British and world assets are which the globalists are fraudulently trading on the back of, and which they have appropriated from the sovereign people.

What these agreements actually were – are agreements for “international co-operation” exactly according to the plan of the Merchants – global businesses.
Recall that after World War II, Europe was divided into two sections: Western Europe was under the administration of a capitalist regime. Eastern Europe was under a communist regime (so we were told).
[Side Note: communism is the economic system for a fascist political system. Socialism is a methodology for conversion to a fascist-led system of communism. Capitalism becomes Fascism when businesses have more money and power than the government and that can only happen through subversion of the government…]
This is the website of Vicky Davis. When I first started this research, the cognitive dissonance was almost overwhelming. On the internet, I was reading and seeing things that indicated something had gone terribly wrong in America but in the small town where I was living, everything seemed perfectly normal. Through my computer screen, I saw nightmares while outside, I could hear lawn mowers, children laughing, dogs barking – all of the normal sounds that indicate all is well. When I would go to the store or other public places, I would search people’s faces looking for some sign that they knew things weren’t right but I didn’t see any signs. I was completely alone with my terror – except for the faceless and nameless few friends I found on the internet who were as concerned as I was.
The Power of Nightmares. The Century of the Self. Pandora’s Box. All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace. If you’re familiar with the alternative media, you’ve doubtless come across references to the documentary work of Adam Curtis. But besides the well-known examples of brilliance within Curtis’ work is a deeply doctrinaire strain that seeks to normalize mainstream history and convince us that the driving ideologies of the political elite are exactly what they say they are. Join us today on The Corbett Report as we deconstruct Curtis’ documentaries and look for the deeper meaning behind the globalist ideology.

I have been working on a poem the past few months and on a novel for the past 4 years.
The cycle of events get me to a point usually where all roads essentially lead to Rome.
To understand this Blog from the perspective on my own mind is not possible but the themes and metaphors which I explore in my poetry can be discerned thus.
TO MAKE A DADAIST POEM
Take a newspaper.
Take some scissors.
Choose from this paper an article of the length you want to make your poem.
Cut out the article.
Next carefully cut out each of the words that makes up this article and put them all in a bag.
Next take out each cutting one after the other.
Copy conscientiously in the order in which they left the bag.
The poem will resemble you.
And there you are – an infinitely original author of charming sensibility, even though unappreciated by the vulgar herd.

So what beliefs do we hold that do not stand up to an objective test of certain knowledge? In this cartoon I see Tom as the State and Corporate Crony capitalism.
