This is Part 1 of a brilliant 3-part series by Matthew Ehret that explains and explores the history of the false dualism facing us today. He uses the Keynes/Hayek conflict as the center of his analysis, to wit: “these two fundamentally anti-republican ideologues whose lives were each devoted to the hereditary systems of empire constructed a widely publicized debate that asserted two opposing economic theories”.
Using this as a springboard, he goes back to the development of the “American System” and the continuous assaults upon it by the Oligarchs and social engineers, and lays out the backdrop for the efforts underway today steer us toward a Neo-feudal global order.
The great experiment of America’s balancing act between governance and personal sovereignty is in the cross-hairs. From part 3, “… Plato revealed that societies are controlled through dualisms that cause its targets to slip from one extreme to the other in an endless cycle. This vacillation will forever occur on the condition that the people remain ignorant of a fundamental paradox, i.e.: the co-existence of, on the one hand, freedom-loving individuality and, on the other hand, our obligation to participate within a larger social unit and even a higher moral law. ”
Ehret provides valuable links for drilling deeper into the issues at hand here, well worth bookmarking for future reference.
