140414 Secession From Supra-States For All Micro-Nations - Global
The 21st Century Green Planet
RT, the Russian media online portal and the Voice of Russia, are but two of the very few global media outlets which proffer more than mere reports on this want by smaller regions to secede from the larger European and other national and supranational bodies, to being more autonomous.
I can't figure out the comments system for the RT pages, and once when I did, they didn't publish my comment. So be it!
So here's the few links to articles of a few media houses, about the interest across the Eurapean and British and elsewhere, world for small 'statism'.
There's a lot riding on this for Locals, the 'Yous and Mes' of the world everywhere, because this 'smaller democracies' arrangement, has far more Benefits for the People, than the large, open to massive corruption nation-states can possibly offer them/you/us.
It tends away from the grossly inflated egomania we witness in large and powerful nations [and corporations], because the separation between the voters, and the governments is - well - really not there.
People are more likely to see their leader in the streets, if they are within the same region. Etc.
Other factors are related to corruption, and that is of the means of funding government, and factors regarding psychology.
Because, from a psychoanalytical perspective, how much of the fancy aloof arrogance, excess of lifestyle, etc., of the super-rich, especially in places of government and power, are not their ways of affecting superiority, merely to deter the People from asking awkward questions about how they acquired the wealth? ET cetera?]
The farther away from the more Realistic People, the easier it is to develop ignore and leave untreated, errant psychological traits and maladies.
However, the more 'space' there is in any one region of government for players to bend the rules, which is the case in large corporations and nations, the more tempting it becomes for the ambitious, entrepreneurial, and just plain greedy business and other people to bend the rules, and buy-off those in positions of power. Those too, in most cases, are mental illnesses, of varying degrees.
And, of course, as it always is, people who grapple and climb up to those same highest positions, in arena that have always been corrupt [since “the fall” perhaps?], are 1stly more than a little psychotic, in their lust for power=wealth=status etc, and have of the last oooowh? 6,000 years, gotten up there purely and simply by skullduggery - ie., by buying or conning or deceiving or 'tricking' their way up the ladder/s of power.
Of course, there are exceptions, but few, and those who do gain a seat at the top tables, rarely rule, nor actually run things.
And in that alone is the truism, that the larger the administration, the more room there is for people at all levels to take a bribe to let some rule be bent or ignored.
The two - running utterly corrupt corporations-cum-dynastic governments, and having one's own Honorable characteristics - simply are contradictory to each other.
As well..., there's grown, probably correctly, a belief that to 'manage' an institute like a nation, one has to have a large bank of knowledge on all the possible machinations as per the bigger powers.
So, as nations grow, they are seduced to accept into their administrations, people from the most corrupt organizations, typically the much larger ones, simply for them apparently having that experience.
Hence, the doors to such as foreign, offshore corruption are swung open, and the nation usually falls in Integrity, until swamped by the filth and becomes a puppet nation to the mad bastards of - say- Washington, or London, et al.
And, while we're a disjointed species, each locale with their own ideas, aspirations, needs and delusions, all 'competing' in the local, regional and global 'free market place' [HAHAHA!] anyone from 'outside' comes with 'some' allegiance to whomever, whatever, whichever company, nation, cult or economic cum-political 'belief-system' they grew into or gave their soul to.
So NO-ONE CAN BE TRUSTED - FUCK?
Outside, of a well-nurtured, secure, LOCAL! In theory?
Something like that, anyway?
But, again, with few exceptions, larger states are usually forced, by the momentum of the jobs, of dealing with different cultures in others, by the inevitable complexities of too large an institution or bureau, and by the 'lobbyists' from private and competitive industries, to be less aware and considerate of the Masses.
Masses who are in essence, the same as the top dogs, but are not carried along on the 'diplomacy and spin' the rulers always have to resort to, to enable the concomitant larger-ever-larger industries that centrist governments and corporations need and do find good reason to want to own.
Something like that, anyway?
So, with all the travails across the northern hemisphere recently, from north Africa to Scotland, across from the Spanish regions to the Ukrainian Micro-States' Peoples'
-calling for more autonomy, thus
-more control over 1stly,
-how governments, THEIR governments are funded, but
-over what their governments DO with the funds, and
-how much of it is spread across the populace, to
-their Proper and Righteous, more Stabilizing preservation of their own, and so often Beautifully Unique Culture/s,
ie., the travails Eurape has slowly been bringing upon itself, over the last few millennia, such that now, what with their centuries-old colonial mines, slave-breeders, and resources providers gaining their own nationhood, etc., so are not now so eager to 'give away' all the resources to plunderers, Eurape is staggering toward it's own implosions-plural.
Plural being that not only has Eurape, and it's 'extensions - Britain, USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, and others of the '1st world' over-consumed, for centuries of improper dominance of the rest of us, they're MAXIMUM CONSUMPTION assumptions that they have an endless supply to their crazy-mad insatiable, emotion-based greedy, selfish demands - is at an end.
Almost every aspect of the 'refined' Eurapean culture has grown on the heads and blood of the billions of the other people they seconded as slaves, and as 2nd class citizens - er - subjects, and on their 'stolen' resources.
Now, I do appreciate the 'fineries' of Brit-Euro culture, to be sure.
And, although most all of it comes from the minds and hands of the elite's spoiled brats given endless stipends [of stolen wealth] to spend on their lives of 'idle hours', and hands [!] manifesting the musical instruments, the amazing architecture, and all accouterments going with palaces etc., - the fucking HAIR-DO'S???, fashion, and talking with a bunch of plums up themselves, lots of it, is as much a distraction from - being Human!
Down to earth, wise, balanced, strong, healthy mind and body, rah rah rah, and a rah.
What these 'advances' in all manner of manorial living do tell us, if we can think, is that the possibilities are endless, and the heights of such genres, trends, fashions and paths are limitless. But, they cannot possibly exist without having 'negative sides' to them.
One, is that they are distracted from what they most need.
And that, is to be able to be Still in mind, and thus to really honestly BE SATISFIED.
'Arrogance' and superiority complexia, but two failings inherent in opulence and spoils from the Honest Tribes, not to mention the dangers of “idle hands (of the ridiculously rich) doing the devil's work”!
These, amongst many, is one reason why the super rich are addicted to power, and want MORE of the fucking stuff. AT NO MATTER WHAT COST!!!!
So, the Masses suffer, inherit the same psychoses, “as above, so below”, and thus become insatiable idiots as well, thus, EVERYONE'S rushing to the cliff.
The psychosis of greed, once in the culture, feeds upon itself, and the victim of wealth, and power, becomes in every way paranoid waiting/fearing for anyone to whack them in the face with the truth about themselves, and the lies they must keep up to cover their true, feeble being, under all the 'make-up' jewelery, fancy garb and ponsy chatter, ET CETERA.
So, seeing no escape, for the hexes this culture of deceit places over their Intellect/s, they follow the garden path down down down using the same components - corruption-cum-opulence - to sustain themselves and the BIG lie/s.
And with the rest of their 'subjects' adopting the same psychoses, for being slowly seduced into accepting it as how to be, the whole grows more defensive, more full of shit, and more aggressive, with the larger numbers of the same stupid cultural dickheads ready to argue for them, and we find - OH SHIT? - nuclear war on the horizon.
Would that scenario be as likely were we more locally governed, so the governors were not so seduced by POWER to become fuckwits?
But, of course! This is just how it goes! “Amoeba to Empire to Self-Extermination”.
So...., no-one, not even Russia's Vlad Putin, nor China's Xi Jinping disagree with this, in heart. But of course, the realities of a nutcase species on a finite amount of real estate, makes for other ways of seeing it.
And, while I remember, the USA is currently getting 'hot' for a Nevada rancher and family holding out against the brutish federal government, who are not the REAL Federation's Government, but a cabal of foreign usurpers, who cunningly self-imposed a false constitution into the works in 1871.
That eruption of sentiment over the last few weeks, across the USA, of Citizen's Militia Manning-and-Arming Up to take down the feds false department, the Bureau of Land Management BLM, in Nevada, has, simply for it being a focus for Dissidents to post the info about the lies and shit online, exposed the flaws in the USA's system, and, the massive deceptions a likely majority if Americans have fallen for.
From what I've 'monitored' from down here down the whiteguy sewer of Astrayliar, there's been no allusion in the media and 'side-media' covering the 'Bundy Ranch Stand-Off'' about “States' Rights” as opposed to the totalitarian feds, stomping on The People.
So, let me go there, virtually that is!
The USA, is, if we forget, supposed to be a “Federation of United States”, literally.
A whole bunch of Wise Dudes way back, figured something out about how best for People to be, and to have their own knowledge and SAY in the government - the administration and management - of their own patch, their own turf, neighborhood, and stuff.
So, the land they'd STOLEN off the Enlightened Indigenous Peoples, was not given over to one huge totalitarian central authority, but was partitioned down into relatively small states, so-as to be manageable, by Locals. More or less.
Then, when all the state borders were drawn across the maps, the population was tiny compared to now, and thus it was well within the population to approach the state's authorities and governors, et al.
Now, grown to having many millions in cities, let alone across the states, the same old too-big-to-talk-to shit looses people, and they cannot be there, to see and contain or prevent some wise-ass from another place from smooozzing their way, by bribes, into bending the governor's ears, and pockets.
So, after the Untied States of America resolves the Proper Government of their own, that-is down to State autonomy, I'd say, if all goes better than a nuclear war to shut them up, they have to re-assess the concept, such that even smaller 'counties' are, 1st all, that-is ALL, run on the same nationwide SCIENTIFICALLY ASSESSED revenue-collecting structures, and then given autonomy as to how they go about funding, feeding, housing and clothing themselves, and refining themselves to all playing violins [?]
Something like that, anyways.
The point being, the planet will run a shitload better, if we all downsize government, so we all can actually [not merely virtually by voting once a few years], become part of it, in terms of knowing what's going orrrn, in the County's Council Chamber/s, and that LAWS are not being corrupted to making us pay more than we should, and such that we are NOT forever placed in that shitful situation of being in constant jeopardy of being moved off which ever piece of land the community divines is good for us and them in-one.
So, the USA too, really has to take the path of reconfiguring itself.
It cannot be left up to the Mobsters up top. It's all or none.
And, contrary to the cocksuckers lusting for power, way up in the bullshit zone/s, these things can be beautifully managed by the Joe and Josephine Average's, if the system is local enough.
We do NOT need uni degrees and 30 years in politrix to know, how to.
So, that goes to saying that it might be time the USA, as a leading nation, with too many problems to ignore, and to wrongly assume 'keep doing it as before' - faced up to it's micro-and macro realities, and act on the truism -
“If something's broken, YOU GOTTO FIX IT!”
But what is needed?
Descaling. Downsizing government. Decentralizing power.
I can only see, hypothetically, that for any easing of the pressure that has boiled up in the USA, thus everywhere, they have to down size autonomy to as local as possible the level.
One major problem and safe house for corruption in Australia, has been the three-tiers of government - federal, states and local.
I'd say the same issues exist and ferment in the USA as well, of the 'middle tier', the states, and federal complicity, both having too much say over what should be in the hands of the local councils, especially in regard to distribution of funding - revenues - and being able or not, to siphon off funds from above which should be going straight down to the most local level.
On top of this, is the inefficiencies of having that horror of 'middle-management'.
The states have to have employees just to administrate, when the funds paying that unnecessary duplication of 'middlemen' administers, should be applied straight out to the projects and utilities and infrastructure/s.
That too, if not the easiest, is how funds are pilfered by less than honorable employees.
And how many unnecessary 'private' sub-contractors lobby their ways into the process, charging, on the OK of the nicely-locked-in bureaucrats, excessive fees for simple projects, assessments and, management?
Projects, assessments and, management once done, by less ambitious, perhaps primarily because, once, they were in a secure job, and lived in secure housing, then, mostly council-owned [quite deliberately allowed to fall into disrepair by the private realty industry subverting demographic designs, and ownership principals of Common, as-in PUBLIC, ownership of the land], so less specious 'Council Workers' who're stable, less paranoid about their next contract, dedicated to doing a Good Job, rather than the day's common 'efficiencies' in process, manufacture and delivery, where everything is parred-down to it's minimalist quality?
America, you don't want to be nuked, by the FOREIGN POWERS in Washington - YET!
But, working against them incites their partners in business, to join them to STOMP you.
As I've written, if YOU sort the Truest Government Policies as to this, Bundy Ranch Stand-Off, of distribution, usage and taxation of the Land, they are much much less likely to fight you.
IF.., You, and a United States Militia, can put into a Document, the Best Formula for Government of 340 million Crazyfuck People, PLUS, the Nationwide United Organized Army of Administrators of the same, they will have to acquiesce, at least to coming to the national table to nut-out a new constitution, or, perhaps best, to agree to re-institute the pre-1871 Constitution OF The United States of America.
Something like that, anyways...?
The Momentum from any such Correction in the USA, will have the parasitic elites of the failing EU and other regions, buckle, and Calls and Revolts for Autonomy for all Micro-Nation States will increase by the hour.
At a guess..., I'd say it IS time!

Viva Veneto, if they vote to secede from Italia!
Smaller 'nation-states' is the way forward, especially for the aging and decrepit EU.
The same applies globally, from China, the USA, Russia and all large nations. It's the only way to clear out corruption, of centrist authorities.
An ideal future EU would be one of hundreds of small, locally taxing and controlled nations.
But we are all far from wanting, and from knowing how to live and trade without 'bakshish' and classified corruption.

[Funny? RT didn't publish this'n?]
The EU is being exposed as elitist, aloof & unworkable, reasons why the small states want out.
Scotland's push for independence of Westminster is a call to attention on Westminster's failing elite politics.
Catalonia, Veneto, Basques as well as Ukraine's micro-states, are saying to the EU that it's elite are power-mad nuts, for control, using the Masses, not for anyones' benefit but the EU elite, to protect their palaces.
Everywhere, 1,000s of micro-states see the science, economy, cultural health, & democratic/demographic common sense, in smaller, states, with self-determination.
So! Be! It! GLOBAL!

Obviously, there's other regions to consider, and their influence on the USA, and the EU, etc.
Russia, or Moscow, clings to it's geographic size, and China too.
Are either likely to accept the USA decentralizing it's power domestically, when such moves are bound to interfere with especially China's financial interests and growth plans within the USA? And, unavoidably that'd create similar wants and Movements within their own territories. NOT something China takes lightly.
Russia, according to Russian media, is pretty cool with their 'satellite' nations around their ideological and political buffer zone having certain amounts of autonomy.
We're yet to see how Crimea, pans-out, in that regard. Is Putin and his Admin, prepared to devolve to some suggested 60-plus, inner-Russian Micro-States?
Him and they being as Intelligent, 1, they'd at least think about it as both a need, and a Benefit. Russians could only celebrate such as move, and would for it, be even more enamored of/with/by/to Moscow and it's Wisdom. I'd expect bordering nations would be lining up to join/rejoin Russia's new 'Soviet'?
But, it's clear, I think, sifting the propaganda and rhetoric and hyperbole, that the Russian administration, holds high the “Intelligence factor” in government, well over the corporate “profit-1st” ones the US is subservient to, and is falling apart from.
I refuse to change my considerations and conclusions on what underpins the most egalitarian government, of Socialism.
Government is for everyone. Not just for those who can scam the most from the powers that be.
That's, as best as I can discern, the, or one Intellectual assessment of the role of government.
It is not how the world has evolved. It's above that inevitable evolution.
That also, and it shows that Putin's administration is on the same wave-length, demands as least centralized control, so, as local an autonomy as is practicable.
But, with, a Central Committee overseeing the inter-activities between the Micro States, to ensure the least waste of resources and manpower. To keep as low as possible the duplication of energies/resources, and wages and salaries.
Let the People be happy, and they can be trusted, to engage and trade with nations of any sector, region or ideology.
But with Honest Government, the resort to believe anything is reduced. So, as Science would become the Guide, religion, as we've known it, at last, could dissipate.
Not to say 'a religious life' wouldn't be nice. That, is actually essential. But without the bullshit.
If we're not Self-Disciplined, we go insane.
All this doesn't take into consideration the problems of supranational military power and the stupid needs to now, of having to raise a permanent military to defend against expansionist fucking psychos elsewhere.
And, other national factors which 'naturally' conflict with a neighbor nation or culture, etc.
But they do not conflict with the concept of Properly Managed Micro-States.
And, the reality of the market places, where we buy whatever, cannot be ignored, and can be embraced very, I say, easily.
Perhaps the most important thing in that, is the mega-growth pills the mega-corps have been taking over the last few millennia, where growth is unstoppable once they attain a certain size.
That alone, really fucks the 'marketplace'.
But, its the same question/problem/situation, of being too big to avoid corruption, and delusional aspirants selling any fucking stupid ideas to the boards, to climb the ladder of ambition. And, of the boards/CEOs/shareholders bending to any suggestions which keep the profits flowing into their pockets.
Why do they demand never-ending increased profits?
Well, 1, they're psychotic, and 2, for that, they are also paranoid of not having too much. “Think of the embarrassment???”
Keeping 'face' the higher up we go, in power, and perhaps more important to psychopaths, 'influence' is everything.
No matter that if it's based on bullshit and egoism, it's about as sick as one can be?
“I WANNA BE THE SICKEST!!!” stomp stomp! wank wank!
In fact, 'capitalism' can be discerned to be centred upon psychosis.
“The endless fight to be unhappy!”
Always at war with everyone else for the same things.
So, China and Russia, no matter who is at the very top, have grown for their recognition that the Intellect is what should be governing the emotions, the desires.
And Intellect does discern that we are not meant to be at never-ending war against our own kind. So, somewhere in the equation of people on finite real estate, we have to balance or needs, and wants, with those of others.
Socialism. Manageable government. Every possible Egalitarian means of letting the People Know and have a well-informed say in their own authority equals as local a government as practicable.
So, if the USA gets up and Corrects their shammozzle, would China and Russia 1, need to change much, and 2, be prepared to?
Every plan all of them and us, have, for the future would have to be put on the table, for reassessment.
I'd say, optimistically, that a lot of them could be simply trashed, thrown out, as no longer necessary.
Because, not only is any such REALPolitik Reform going to effect and change how we're governed, how we govern ourselves, but every way we've come to accept as how we all have to fight for a crust or for a mansion, changes too.
Proper Adjustments here, would open the way the planet needs for the maximum and most efficient reductions on uses of energy.
It can't be, for a large lot of us, merely an administrative correction.
Like any Revolution or Proper Reformation of how we organize our world, where it's “ALL OR NONE!” so it has to be in how we live.
That would be most different, in how we share the resources, but mainly, the land.
Most of humanity's energy crises arise because we're disgustingly inefficient in how we share resources, but most of all how we are distributed across the land.
Sort that out, and we reduce our energy demands, maximally.
So, plans for dams and solar farms and coal powered stations and autos to commute in and industries to support the energy megaliths, become down sized, or down sizeable, enormously.
And, maybe, so would be the perceived need to start wars against energy-rich nations.
It involves billions of us shaking off the spells assuming it's cool to buy food from the other side of the planet, for anything that can be made more locally.
Needs-must. Get a SOUL, Bitch!
So the utter bullshit international freight mega-industry AND all it's ancillary supports, have to be scaled right back, at least, possibly for decades, until they can be TOTALLY environmentally friendly.
I cannot believe humans NEED most of the freighted stuff from afar. That, is purely the realm of colonial egoism, and the foolish beliefs in the upper classes, that they can afford it, so lets build bigger ships. Etc.
A massive waste of energy and resources, not to mention the damage to the oceans, etc.
It goes on and on, as you know.
We all recognize things need to change. But because it's such a big issue, no-one can put a finger on where to start.
Why not just start by looking at the stuff right beneath your own feet, and the laws relating you, to it?
Get them Correct, Locally, then take it from there.....
