    The Essential Rules Of Tyranny

    By Brandon Smith:

    As we look back on the horrors of the dictatorships and autocracies of the past, one particular question consistently arises; how was it possible for the common men of these eras to NOT notice what was happening around them? How could they have stood as statues unaware or uncaring as their cultures were overrun by fascism, communism, collectivism, and elitism? Of course, we have the advantage of hindsight, and are able to research and examine the misdeeds of the past at our leisure. Unfortunately, such hindsight does not necessarily shield us from the long cast shadow of tyranny in our own day. For that, the increasingly uncommon gift of foresight is required…

    At bottom, the success of despotic governments and Big Brother societies hinges upon a certain number of political, financial, and cultural developments. The first of which is an unwillingness in the general populace to secure and defend their own freedoms, making them completely reliant on corrupt establishment leadership. For totalitarianism to take hold, the masses must not only neglect the plight of their country, and the plight of others, but also be completely uninformed of the inherent indirect threats to their personal safety. They must abandon all responsibility for their destinies, and lose all respect for their own humanity. They must, indeed, become domesticated and mindless herd animals without regard for anything except their fleeting momentary desires for entertainment and short term survival. For a lumbering bloodthirsty behemoth to actually sneak up on you, you have to be pretty damnably oblivious.

    The prevalence of apathy and ignorance sets the stage for the slow and highly deliberate process of centralization. Once dishonest governments accomplish an atmosphere of inaction and condition a sense of frailty within the citizenry, the sky is truly the limit. However, a murderous power-monger’s day is never quite done. In my recent article ‘The Essential Rules of Liberty’ we explored the fundamentally unassailable actions and mental preparations required to ensure the continuance of a free society. In this article, let’s examine the frequently wielded tools of tyrants in their invariably insane quests for total control…

    Rule #1: Keep Them Afraid

    People who are easily frightened are easily dominated. This is not just a law of political will, but a law of nature. Many wrongly assume that a tyrant’s power comes purely from the application of force. In fact, despotic regimes that rely solely on extreme violence are often very unsuccessful, and easily overthrown. Brute strength is calculable. It can be analyzed, and thus, eventually confronted and defeated. Thriving tyrants instead utilize not just harm, but the imminent THREAT of harm. They instill apprehension in the public; a fear of the unknown, or a fear of the possible consequences for standing against the state. They let our imaginations run wild until we see death around every corner, whether it’s actually there or not. When the masses are so blinded by the fear of reprisal that they forget their fear of slavery, and take no action whatsoever to undo it, then they have been sufficiently culled.

    In other cases, our fear is evoked and directed towards engineered enemies. Another race, another religion, another political ideology, a “hidden” and ominous villain created out of thin air. Autocrats assert that we “need them” in order to remain safe and secure from these illusory monsters bent on our destruction. As always, this development is followed by the claim that all steps taken, even those that dissolve our freedoms, are “for the greater good”. Frightened people tend to shirk their sense of independence and run towards the comfort of the collective, even if that collective is built on immoral and unconscionable foundations. Once a society takes on a hive-mind mentality almost any evil can be rationalized, and any injustice against the individual is simply overlooked for the sake of the group.

    Rule #2: Keep Them Isolated

    In the past, elitist governments would often legislate and enforce severe penalties for public gatherings, because defusing the ability of the citizenry to organize or to communicate was paramount to control. In our technological era, such isolation is still used, but in far more advanced forms. The bread and circus lifestyle of the average westerner alone is enough to distract us from connecting with each other in any meaningful fashion, but people still sometimes find ways to seek out organized forms of activism.

    Through co-option, modern day tyrant’s can direct and manipulate opposition movements. By creating and administrating groups which oppose each other, elites can then micromanage all aspects of a nation on the verge of revolution. These “false paradigms” give us the illusion of proactive organization, and the false hope of changing the system, while at the same time preventing us from seeking understanding in one another. All our energies are then muted and dispersed into meaningless battles over “left and right”, or “Democrat versus Republican”, for example. Only movements that cast aside such empty labels and concern themselves with the ultimate truth of their country, regardless of what that truth might reveal, are able to enact real solutions to the disasters wrought by tyranny.

    In more advanced forms of despotism, even fake organizations are disbanded. Curfews are enforced. Normal communications are diminished or monitored. Compulsory paperwork is required. Checkpoints are instituted. Free speech is punished. Existing groups are influenced to distrust each other or to disintegrate entirely out of dread of being discovered. All of these measures are taken by tyrants primarily to prevent ANY citizens from gathering and finding mutual support. People who work together and organize of their own volition are unpredictable, and therefore, a potential risk to the state.

    Rule #3: Keep Them Desperate

    You’ll find in nearly every instance of cultural descent into autocracy, the offending government gained favor after the onset of economic collapse. Make the necessities of root survival an uncertainty, and people without knowledge of self sustainability and without solid core principles will gladly hand over their freedom, even for mere scraps from the tables of the same men who unleashed famine upon them. Financial calamities are not dangerous because of the poverty they leave in their wake; they are dangerous because of the doors to malevolence that they leave open.

    Destitution leads not just to hunger, but also to crime (private and government). Crime leads to anger, hatred, and fear. Fear leads to desperation. Desperation leads to the acceptance of anything resembling a solution, even despotism.

    Autocracies pretend to cut through the dilemmas of economic dysfunction (usually while demanding liberties be relinquished), however, behind the scenes they actually seek to maintain a proscribed level of indigence and deprivation. The constant peril of homelessness and starvation keeps the masses thoroughly distracted from such things as protest or dissent, while simultaneously chaining them to the idea that their only chance is to cling to the very government out to end them.

    Rule #4: Send Out The Jackboots

    This is the main symptom often associated with totalitarianism. So much so that our preconceived notions of what a fascist government looks like prevent us from seeing other forms of tyranny right under our noses. Some Americans believe that if the jackbooted thugs are not knocking on every door, then we MUST still live in a free country. Obviously, this is a rather naïve position. Admittedly, though, goon squads and secret police do eventually become prominent in every failed nation, usually while the public is mesmerized by visions of war, depression, hyperinflation, terrorism, etc.

    When law enforcement officials are no longer servants of the people, but agents of a government concerned only with its own supremacy, serious crises emerge. Checks and balances are removed. The guidelines that once reigned in police disappear, and suddenly, a philosophy of superiority emerges; an arrogant exclusivity that breeds separation between law enforcement and the rest of the public. Finally, police no longer see themselves as protectors of citizens, but prison guards out to keep us subdued and docile.

    As tyranny grows, this behavior is encouraged. Good men are filtered out of the system, and small (minded and hearted) men are promoted.

    At its pinnacle, a police state will hide the identities of most of its agents and officers, behind masks or behind red tape, because their crimes in the name of the state become so numerous and so sadistic that personal vengeance on the part of their victims will become a daily concern.

    Rule #5: Blame Everything On The Truth Seekers

    Tyrants are generally men who have squelched their own consciences. They have no reservations in using any means at their disposal to wipe out opposition. But, in the early stages of their ascent to power, they must give the populace a reason for their ruthlessness, or risk being exposed, and instigating even more dissent. The propaganda machine thus goes into overdrive, and any person or group that dares to question the authority or the validity of the state is demonized in the minds of the masses.

    All disasters, all violent crimes, all the ills of the world, are hoisted upon the shoulders of activist groups and political rivals. They are falsely associated with fringe elements already disliked by society (racists, terrorists, etc). A bogus consensus is created through puppet media in an attempt to make the public believe that “everyone else” must have the same exact views, and those who express contrary positions must be “crazy”, or “extremist”. Events are even engineered by the corrupt system and pinned on those demanding transparency and liberty. The goal is to drive anti-totalitarian organizations into self censorship. That is to say, instead of silencing them directly, the state causes activists to silence themselves.

    Tyrannical power structures cannot function without scapegoats. There must always be an elusive boogie man under the bed of every citizen, otherwise, those citizens may turn their attention, and their anger, towards the real culprit behind their troubles. By scapegoating stewards of the truth, such governments are able to kill two birds with one stone.

    Rule #6: Encourage Citizen Spies

    Ultimately, the life of a totalitarian government is not prolonged by the government itself, but by the very people it subjugates. Citizen spies are the glue of any police state, and our propensity for sticking our noses into other peoples business is highly valued by Big Brother bureaucracies around the globe.

    There are a number of reasons why people participate in this repulsive activity. Some are addicted to the feeling of being a part of the collective, and “service” to this collective, sadly, is the only way they are able to give their pathetic lives meaning. Some are vindictive, cold, and soulless, and actually get enjoyment from ruining others. And still, like elites, some long for power, even petty power, and are willing to do anything to fulfill their vile need to dictate the destinies of perfect strangers.

    Citizen spying is almost always branded as a civic duty; an act of heroism and bravery. Citizen spies are offered accolades and awards, and showered with praise from the upper echelons of their communities. People who lean towards citizen spying are often outwardly and inwardly unimpressive; physically and mentally inept. For the average moral and emotional weakling with persistent feelings of inadequacy, the allure of finally being given fifteen minutes of fame and a hero’s status (even if that status is based on a lie) is simply too much to resist. They begin to see “extremists” and “terrorists” everywhere. Soon, people afraid of open ears everywhere start to watch what they say at the supermarket, in their own backyards, or even to family members. Free speech is effectively neutralized.

    Rule #7: Make Them Accept The Unacceptable

    In the end, it is not enough for a government fueled by the putrid sludge of iniquity to lord over us. At some point, it must also influence us to forsake our most valued principles. Tyrannies are less concerned with dominating how we live, so much as dominating how we think. If they can mold our very morality, they can exist unopposed indefinitely. Of course, the elements of conscience are inborn, and not subject to environmental duress as long as a man is self aware. However, conscience can be manipulated if a person has no sense of identity, and has never put in the effort to explore his own strengths and failings. There are many people like this in America today.

    Lies become “necessary” in protecting the safety of the state. War becomes a tool for “peace”. Torture becomes an ugly but “useful” method for gleaning important information. Police brutality is sold as a “natural reaction” to increased crime. Rendition becomes normal, but only for those labeled as “terrorists”. Assassination is justified as a means for “saving lives”. Genocide is done discretely, but most everyone knows it is taking place. They simply don’t discuss it.
    All tyrannical systems depend on the apathy and moral relativism of the inhabitants within their borders. Without the cooperation of the public, these systems cannot function. The real question is, how many of the above steps will be taken before we finally refuse to conform? At what point will each man and woman decide to break free from the dark path blazed before us and take measures to ensure their independence? Who will have the courage to develop their own communities, their own alternative economies, their own organizations for mutual defense outside of establishment constructs, and who will break under the pressure to bow like cowards? How many will hold the line, and how many will flee?

    For every American, for every human being across the planet who chooses to stand immovable in the face of the very worst in mankind, we come that much closer to breathing life once again into the very best in us all.

    Brian, how in the world did you get your hands on the Democrat Party Playbook???

    It is one of the most highly guarded documents around, serialized, and inspected for possession to those is assigned to on a weekly basis. Someone's head is going to roll.

    Rick,

    It is not at least by the dumocrats a closely gaurded secret.

    The main stream media on the other hand,

    the owners, managers and editors, THAT dream, of being the TOOL that quides the sheeple, the power behind the _____, quiding by what ever drival they care to print and watching herds of sheeple move to and fro at their slightest whim.

    NOW those worns want it to be a closely gaurded secret!

    It is a simple thing,

    BUT!

    I stopped going to a certian coffee place when they got to be everywhere,

    Because THE lines of SHEEPLE that had/have to buy that brand was depressing to see!

    so I will keep my hands down on this one.

    The problem is that sheeple end up that way because they find it to hard to think for themselves!

    Not making the effort to think for themselves makes them sheeple!

    AND

    THEY are to lazy/simple minded/self blinded/..........................

    to take the time to realize their.....................................

    so for some reason I just do not see any hands being raised, because if they could raise their hands, they might just being using enough brain power to see their way out!

    THE STUPID GENE by Doug Scott
    Every collection of people that survives for long enough to begin making it's own community rules establishes it's own unique culture. While some cultures don't survive long enough to become successful and prosperous, and die out before they reach that point, even those which do succeed and prosper are doomed to the same fate. These successful cultures contain within them the seeds of their own destruction. It is their very success that allows these seeds of destruction to germinate and grow and flourish, and eventually to take over and destroy the very culture that spawned them. This seed of self destruction is contained in the genetics of all mankind, and is what I call the stupid gene.
    When a culture has survived long enough to begin establishing it's own rules or laws of community, that culture has doubtless survived some tough times. Nature is relentless in weeding out the weak, the infirm, the un-cooperative, and the stupid. Whenever a culture of people gets started, the very dangers and difficulties that they must overcome in order to survive ensures that the idiots in that culture will be weeded out. The dangers and difficulties are their own weeding out process, and only those souls that have some real smarts and capability and resourcefulness will survive. Those hardy souls will produce offspring that contain the genetics of both parents, parents who were smart and capable enough to last long enough to reproduce.
    As time goes on and the culture begins to not only survive, but prosper, the native intelligence of it's people begins to be displayed in the difficulties they overcome, the success of their endeavors, and ultimately in the ease of life which those successes brings about. It is this very success however, that contains the seeds of that culture's ultimate demise. You see, every culture of men contains the "stupid" gene.
    The stupid gene is that bit of genetics which leads to stupid people. Early in our representative culture's beginnings the stupid gene was caused to become recessive. Those stupid people who carried the stupid gene as dominant simply didn't survive long enough to procreate and pass the stupid gene on to their offspring. Thus in the surviving members of that culture and in the culture itself the stupid gene became recessive, and the people survived and prospered because of the native intelligence and capabilities of it's surviving people.
    However, with survival and prosperity comes an easing of life, and with that easing of life people aren't subjected to the rigors that weeded out the stupid people of earlier generations. As time goes by the population in the culture increases due to the easier conditions that culture faces, and as more and more people survive and procreate who wouldn't have made the cut in earlier generations, the stupid gene, which had been recessive, begins to show up again, and in later generations actually becomes dominant. Now this isn't to say that there are no longer any smart, tough, resourceful, capable people in that culture. Far from it, it is the very existence of those smart people, and their successes, which makes it possible for the stupid people to survive and procreate. However, it requires absolutely no intelligence to procreate, and actually requires some intelligence not to. So unsurprisingly the stupid people procreate in numbers far greater than the culture's smart people.
    At some point in that culture one of the stupid people who also carries the politician gene figures out that he or she can garner votes by stealing from the produce of the smart people and giving the proceeds of that theft to the stupid people. At that point the entire natural bias toward success in that culture shifts and the stupid people begin to dominate the culture in every respect. The smart people aren't called smart for nothing, and as the burden of taxes, fees, licenses, permits and other assorted methods of extortion begin to suppress the ability of the smart people to produce, they begin using their smarts to overcome the burdens placed on them by the stupid politicians, but first one and then a few and then entire hundreds and thousands and ultimately millions of them simply give up in the face of ever increasing roadblocks to success and quit producing. Now of course when you have stupid people who also carry the politician gene, they have to establish bureaucracies full of people to extract those taxes, fees, licenses, permits and other assorted extortions. These jobs are considered unattractive and even treasonous to smart people, so these bureaucracies are staffed with stupid people. The stupid politician needs to keep these masses of stupid people happy, because they are what keeps him in power, so the stupid politician makes sure these jobs pay better and have better benefits than what can be typically found in the real world job market. The stupid people who staff the bureaucracies are terribly inefficient, so naturally it requires far greater numbers of them to achieve the same results as could be expected from smart people, and it also requires large numbers of stupidvisors to achieve any effectiveness at all. Of course the stupivisors within those bureaucracies are paid according to how many stupid people they stupidvise, so they are always seeking to hire more stupid people and grow the size of their bureaucracy. Thus the numbers of stupid people who are making their livings by extorting from the smart productive people eventually crushes the ability of the smart productive people to keep up with the demands of the stupid people, and the culture begins to implode. At some point the culture reaches a tipping point at which the smart people simply refuse to continue to produce, only to have their attempts thwarted and their hard won production stolen. As fewer and fewer smart people produce, there are fewer and fewer services and goods, and fewer and fewer smart people to extort, and the bureaucracies begin to run out of money to pay the stupidcrats. The bureaucracies begin to extort ever greater amounts of good and services from fewer and fewer producers until one day the entire system collapses in a terrifyingly swift manner, and the once fat, dumb and happy stupidcrats are, in a single day, left with no job or income. At this point savings extorted from the smart people are used to strip store shelves of food and life necessities, but the system has collapsed and there are no replacements for the last of what the producers produced. In about 1 1 /2 weeks the total supply of food and consumables has been consumed, and bellies begin to ache, and the stupid people do what stupid people have always done - they riot, destroying everything and razing the land of the last crumbs. As those crumbs too are consumed, the stupid people turn on each other and anyone else they can get their hands on in their stupid rage at having their stupid, fat, and happy lifestyle taken from them. In a short time murder and starvation have razed the land and after a spasm of unbelievable violence, those stupid but cunning people who have survived to that point form gangs and, traveling in numbers, rape the land of the last of it's hidden produce, finding and attacking those smart people who foresaw the end coming and prepared for it. Sometimes the stupid but cunning gangs prevail and sometimes they are slaughtered, but ultimately they too succumb, until all that is left is a hand full of smart people, in a savage land, in difficult circumstances, with nary a stupid gene dominant among them.....

    Wireguy, my eyes aren't what they use to be so I split this story up a bit. I haven't read it yet, got a couple lines into it and had some problems with squinting... LOL... So I hope you don't mind.

    Reading these posts made me think...

    How about OUR government in the past 150 years supporting these dictators, despots, and tyrants you speak of around the world (until it becomes inconvenient), like say, Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, The House of Saud, King Hamad of Bahrain, among present day offenders of basic human rights, and several dozens in the past that have led to catastrophic events, misery and mass murder around the world?
