All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

.::Version 0.1 ::. DRAFT in Progress

Opening Statement
The inaugural address was the other day and this quote of G. W. Bush was in an article from the LA Times:

“Thursday, Bush proclaimed in his inaugural address that the central purpose of his second term would be the promotion of democracy "in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world" — a key neoconservative goal. Suddenly, the neocons were ascendant again.”

My brain hurt when I heard that in the news and read it today so I sat about thinking about it… the big question in my mind was and is, tyranny… isn’t it ironic that Bush is using that term when it seems to me that the Bush family has been operating under
despotistic type behavior to the point that we have today a person in the white house whom was a ‘C’ student who had drug issues and was flippant to the rules of academia? I was recalling reading about what Tsurumi is reported to have listen to come out of the Bush mouth back at Harvard… ''people are poor because they're lazy." Not even will I go into the spin around the Air National Guard Duty since I have already gone there earlier in this BLOG of Chaos.

What does it take to get a man into the guard with an aptitude score of 25? What does it take to get a C student into Yale and Harvard? Connections and power and influence that goes beyond the reach of all but the elite of the elite.

Define Tyranny

n 1: a form of government in which the ruler is an absolute dictator (not restricted by a constitution or laws or opposition etc.) [syn: dictatorship, absolutism, authoritarianism, Caesarism, despotism, monocracy, one-man rule, shogunate, Stalinism, totalitarianism] 2: dominance through threat of punishment and violence [syn: absolutism, despotism]

During the Revolution and the Tea Party and the forming of this nation the United States of America, our fore fathers, my relatives of the Mead family were rebelling against the idea that the common man did not have a voice in the local affairs of his life or the life of his family. Our forefathers revolted against the Aristocratic elitist powers, it was Jefferson who made the quote that GW was most likely mimicking … "I have sworn upon the altar of Almighty God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."

Define Realist
n 1: a philosopher who believes that universals are real and exist independently of anyone thinking of them 2: a person who accepts the world as it literally is and deals with it accordingly 3: a painter who represents the world realistically and not in an idealized or romantic style

Define Democracy
n 1: the political orientation of those who favor government by the people or by their elected representatives 2: a political system in which the supreme power lies in a body of citizens who can elect people to represent them [syn:
republic, commonwealth] [ant: autocracy] 3: the doctrine that the numerical majority of an organized group can make decisions binding on the whole group [syn: majority rule]

Concern of current trend
Senior Bush Aide states: . "I've never understood what that neoconservative label means, anyway,"
He's made it clear that he's going to turn up the pressure a bit. He's going to try to accelerate the process."
Problem: It is Capitalism that is being pushed
Why is that an issue?
What do people THINK drives the Terrorists?
Core is Control structure
Other options
Closing statement
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

please post ideas critique etc etc ... thanks
