The worse the better – that is a ruling elite’s driver

Nowadays America’s challenge: “To be or Not To be”
and if “To Be” how to define it


Crisis, crisis, crisis in our nation … – our national News Media and Government attack us by this ‘news’ every day. 

Crisis with school education, crisis with family structure, crisis with health care, crisis with inflation, crisis with gun violence, crisis with government debt, crisis with racial relations, crisis with defining gender, climate crisis … crisis with everything everywhere.  

What happened? About a half-century ago we had the same challenges, but our people, families, communities, and municipalities were successfully managing them on their own without crying ‘crisis.’ 

What happened was a transformation of our government from a democratically elected to serve the people to a totalitarian one to rule over the people.  

The nature of any government is to amass its power over the people, and only people’s resistance may prevent it, but we failed.  

For a totalitarian transformation, the government elevates people’s everyday challenges to the level of national crises. Why? – Because if crises are national, only the government must resolve them, and to do it the government demands unrestricted power.  

Most in the News Media are happy to deliver to masses this government’ s crisis brainwashing since crisis news is much more profitable.  

The concocted crises let the government present something what the people have been considering a normal part of life as national ‘worse’ and then present itself as a fighter for ‘better’ – better for itself … and that is a ruling elite’s driver. 

Below are just a few examples.  

Gun crisis

Guns are presented as responsible for out-of-control national violence and gun owners are rebranded from protectors of local justice, as was in the glorious past, to near worse among those responsible for out-of-control violence. This concocted ‘worse’ let the government extend its power over gun owners.  

Now we have more government power … and more gun violence!  

Police crisis


Local Police are pictured not as guardians of the local order, as were in the past, but as near worse suspects in law violation. This concocted ‘worse’ let the government extend its power over local municipalities. 

Now we have even more government power … and more laws violation!  

‘Our democracy’ crisis


Those who are fighting against the government’s totalitarian transformation are branded as ‘our democracy’ worse enemies. This concocted ‘worse’ is letting the government crush all who defend the true democracy of individual freedoms against a totalitarian ‘our democracy.’  

Epidemics crisis

That is one of the best that happened for totalitarians – it amassed the power of the ruling elite over the entire population by forced vaccination, mask wearing, travel restrictions, work restrictions, dependance on government assistance, etc. But it was the worst that happened to the nation.  

Again, more power to the government … and less power to us the people! 

Climate crisis


The earth climate has been changing from the very beginning, and the human have been adjusting to the change by relocation to better places and by technology advances such as home insulation, advanced heating and cooling systems, farming advances, better transportation systems, etc. The national and global ruling elites made of the normal climate change the crisis and thus increased their power over the entire world.  

But Climate continues changing unstoppably!  

Racial crisis


From the very beginning America was a multi-race nation. Citizens of different races were finding their ways to live together – some peacefully and some with hate and bloodshed. Nobody was asking the government to interfere in their relationships because it was understood that only people themselves can find a coexistence formula.  

However, we have not paid attention to the work of totalitarians to elevate the good-and-bad racial relations to the level of one more national crisis, and they succeeded.  

The ruling elite amassed its power even more, but racial relations became worse.   

Poverty crisis


Different people have different life visions (defined by genetics). Those whose life visions result in producing sellable goods (laboring, engineering, managing, etc.) are becoming ‘rich’ money-wise, while those whose life visions result in nothing what other people may buy are ‘poor.’ So, how have the poor been surviving? – By Charity/Mitzvah of the rich. Nobody was defining the poverty level. Judeo-Christian virtues moved the rich helping the poor, and both sides were satisfied.  

However, the ruling elite created another crisis from this historically normal situation. The ruling elite made itself a savior of the poor and began robbing the rich to ‘help the poor’ … and mostly to help itself.  

And what historically happens under the totalitarian government has happened – Government ruinous budget and debt.


The enormous amount of money that our government is forcefully taking from us the people, and by borrowing money from everywhere that we the people soon will be paying for, is what the ruling elite needs to preserve and strengthen its power. However, this leads to terminal sickness of our free-market economy and our individual freedoms.  

What is going on

Our totalitarian government is violating the US Constitution and our traditions – the role of government should be ‘defend and protect,’ not ‘change for the better.’  

American Judeo-Christian tradition is rooted in the belief that only humans are made “in the image of God” and therefore know better what is better. A truly democratic government is not created “in the image of God” and therefore is only a servant of the people who know what is better.
