Must governments always be evil?

Written by 

MUST GOVERNMENTS ALWAYS BE EVIL?

The United States Congress has just passed a Bill into law that supposedly over hauled the US Tax system. What it amounts to is cutting corporate tax from 35% to 21% and cutting tax rate for millionaires from 39% to 37% and a few cuts for other high income earners but did nothing for the middle and poor folks; indeed, the middle class and poor would see their taxes rise!

The legislation removed the Obamacare mandate requiring all Americans to buy health insurance meaning that many young and healthy persons would not buy insurance and older people who need health insurance would be faced with higher premiums; consequently, insurance rates would go up and soon the whole Obamacare itself would collapse.

The tax cut added $1.5 trillion dollars to the already bloated US deficit and debt (as we speak the debt is over $20 trillion dollars).

Watch: next year the Republicans will be telling us that this level of deficit and debt is unsustainable; they would yell the need to cut government spending or else the world would end.

Where would they want to cut? Medicare (insurance for the old) and Medicaid (insurance for the poor).

After that they would move to either abolish social security or privatize it.   We know where the Republicans are heading to.

Nor are the other party a good alternative to the Republicans. If Democrats come to power, as they are likely to come to power after the 2018 midterm elections, guess what they are going to do? They will start passing laws asking all Americans to embrace homosexuality; I mean this literally not sarcastically. Democrats have not seen any sexual deviancy that they do not like and want to impose on the people.

Instead of doing the needful thing, move the US economy to robust mixed economy and the polity to unabashed social democracy, as in the Scandinavian countries, Democrats will not do it but will only tell people who believe that homosexuality is an unnatural behavior to accept it.

American government is on autopilot to self-destruction. At the rate its evil behavior is going unmitigated there is no doubt that it has a date with destiny.

The gap between the rich and the poor in America  will be so much that the poor would finally lose the fear that keeps them wage slaves and riot and capture the rich and their government and guillotine them.

I believe that a French style revolution is in the works for the US within a generation (thirty three years). The devil has so taken hold of the minds of the rulers of America that only a bloody revolution would make them change course; pure reason has fled from America's rulers. It is an understatement to say that Satan itself is in charge of America, while the confused people call themselves Christians. Christians are supposed to love one another but the American political system is designed for people to screw one another.

How about other countries, are they better than Americans? Are African countries better than America? What are the people in Nigerian and African governments but thieves who loot their countries wealth and could care less about the 80% unemployment in their countries? Nigerian and African governments are really not governments but clubs of thieves.

And the cowardly Nigerians and Africans tolerate the thieves that pretend to govern them.  Let us forget Nigerians and Africans for they do not seem to be human beings who are interested in good governance.

My question is this?  Are governments destined to be evil?  Before you answer this question please make sure that you have surveyed the governments around you and found them evil or not. I have not found one government on planet earth that seems to me to be good.  So, are we condemned to having evil governments? And if so who condemned us to have evil governments?

My metaphysics says that in God we are love but that we decided to experience the opposite of love.

Love exists in unified state; God is unified state; in God all of us share one self and one mind.  We opted to experience the opposite of unified living, which is the opposite of love and separated from God and each other. We designed a universe of space, time and matter and housed ourselves in bodies to make separated living seem feasible.

On earth, the abode of ego separated living, we do not love each other; on earth we do not even love ourselves.

Our world is designed to be a place of the opposite of love. As such, our governments are not meant to encourage love between people but to encourage them to do what they came to do, not love one another.

In this light, what the US governments does, pass and implement public policies that literally help the one percent of Americans that own 99% of America's wealth while the people live like animals is congruent with the nature of this world. Other governments in their own ways do the same.

My metaphysics says that the governments of this world, like the people themselves, are here to be evil. To me governments are systems of evil meant to lord it over evil human beings.

I would like someone to disprove my pessimistic but realistic perspective on the nature of human beings and their governments.
