Dr Matthew Raphael Johnson talks about the betrayal of the constitution and the rise of the consumertarian.
Today, the American regime serves as a large processing plant for the production of beastly semi-humans designed to purchase commodities made by others from very, very far away working for slave wages. This freakish automaton is then told that his condition is the ultimate manifestation of “freedom” and, even more, is nothing short of a historical “inevitability.”
Pumped full of psychotropic drugs, self-hate, chimerical, media-generated images and sophistical ideologies, the American is shepherded though his life by a pantheon of celebrities creating a dream world with no relationship to actual reality. This is the inverted universe within which the mass-man cognitively is forced to exist. The average American does not have even the vocabulary to describe his condition, let alone fight it.
The Postmodern idea claims that humans have rights of some kind, but have no idea what these are, where they come from or what end they serve. John Adams said,:
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. . . Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide” (John Adams, letter to John Taylor, 1814).
In other words, the American founders rejected any sense of individualism or abstract rights, holding that only a tiny percentage of the population have any right to the title of “citizen,” which itself comes from their state of positive freedom or autonomy. None of the intellectuals of his generation disagreed.
After excoriating the oligarchs of his day as “pseudo-aristoi,” Adams says “on the other hand the stupidity with which the more numerous multitude not only become their dupes, but even love to be taken by their tricks, I feel a stronger disposition to weep at their destiny, than to laugh at their folly.” the Constitution, if it has any relevance at all, is only meant to apply to the tiny handful of men who can actually reach a state of real freedom and hence, citizenship.
