Government is the enslavement of a population within a defined set of borders called a nation, where a parasitic class termed the “elite” maintains complete control and authority of the population to accumulate power and wealth. Elite groups have evolved different styles of control depending on the geography, genetics, environment, and culture contained within its borders.

Everything a government does is to preserve or increase the power and wealth of the elite. This requires various levels of carrot and stick. Benefits or rights given to citizens, while seemingly altruistic on the surface, are approved by the elite because through some mechanism it preserves their power and wealth. Some may cite America as an exception, since citizens were given the most rights and freedoms out of any other nation, but it must be considered that this was only to steal power from the existing British elite and establish central control (the Federal branch). The States were fed enough carrot to ratify the Constitution with all its “rights,” which by 2015 has steadily eroded and exist at times as mere abstract ideals, especially in light of the increasing Orwellian police state we find ourselves living in.

The right mix of carrot and stick is essential to maintaining control over the long term, because enough economic growth and well-being must be created so that citizens don’t revolt or so the nation doesn’t suffer an economic collapse. These negative scenarios would eject the current group of elites, allowing a new set to usurp power and try their hand at being slavemasters with—hopefully—an improved plantation management system that prevents their own demise.

I don’t use the term enslavement in jest. A significant percentage of your labor output must be given to the government, regardless of the benefits you receive, or you will be imprisoned in a cell. If you break a law that the elites have passed, no matter how unjust, you will be imprisoned. You will be surveiled and monitored, regardless of the legality of the method, and there is nothing you can do about it short of replacing the current set of elites with another that will initially use more carrot so you approve of your new slavemasters in their taking of power.

Whenever one set of elites comes into conflict with a set of elites ruling a different nation, a war may occur. War is when elites have calculated that violence is the best option to increase their wealth and power, or to protect their existing wealth and power. Once a war is justified on those terms, citizens are fed propaganda to authorize the war, one that will at least temporarily reduce their living standard.

Self-defense is the most common reason elites state as the reason for going to war. It is true that war is self-defense in that it’s a defense of the elite’s interests, not those of citizens, who are seen upon as replaceable machines that generate their wealth and power and which must be constantly controlled and manipulated to guarantee consistent output.

There are three options for non-elite citizens. The first is to become elite themselves. The elite club does have sporadic openings for men with high levels of ingenuity, ambition, immorality, and luck. The second is to minimize elite oppression by evading their methods of control or minimizing exposure to their unquenchable demand for tax and tribute. The third option is to become a house slave where you are close to the seat of elite power and therefore receive some of their power scraps. A common way to achieve the last option is to climb the government bureaucratic ladder or work in the media establishment. Most citizens, however, are ignorant of their slavery, and actually believe that the point of government is to serve them like a mother nurtures its child.

Understanding a government’s true function can explain why a phenomenon like nationalism has been eradicated by the elites: it was a constant threat to their power. Globalization, a way to remove national self-identity, prevents one citizen from associating deeply with his neighbor and therefore less likely to fight beside him in an attempt at overthrowing the elite. After nationalism was tapered in the post WW2 era, the elites of the West have been embracing cultural Marxist policies, which aim to do to the family unit what globalization has done to national identity.

The more a citizen is dependent on the government, while distrusting neighbor, husband, wife, mother, and father, the more likely the elite will maintain long-term control over such a population. A slavemaster is always working on methods to make sure his slaves are completely dependent on him, both physically and emotionally, so that even if the slave has a chance to kill the slavemaster or escape from the plantation, he instead decides to remain enslaved, rationalizing all the good his slavemaster does for him.

This real function of government is consistent around the world, suggesting it may even have its origins or instructions in human DNA. Therefore an enslaved citizen must not lament being born into slavery. Instead, he must understand his condition, the rules of his enslavement, and live in a way that minimizes the worst components of it (brainwashing, imprisonment, impoverishment) in his pursuit of happiness, truth, and virtue.

His pursuit must be taken individually, without depending on the government, whose loyalty only lies in its own power and wealth. No loyalty must be given to the elites of any country who does not have loyalty for him. The best option is to vigorously pursue self-reliance and individual strength in order to endure the burden of the elite’s oppression while surviving the often violent changing of one set of elites for another. For as long as humans live, the elite will parasitically sponge off the population’s lifeblood, but at least we can minimize their most damaging features.

    Good point overall, but this isn’t entirely accurate because there have been many good men in history who have attempted to establish just governments, especially men of religion. Unfortunately, usually an elite snatch power upon the founder’s death and keep wealth to themselves.

        like eveeything its a pr stunt. be it democracy islamists communist marxist feminist hell even the redpill theres always something tangible for the leader to gain while the supportive enthusiastic people will literally die for the idea because they belive what they are doing is good.

        we can even taje sports. the president of tge nba doesnt care about basketball like the hardcore fans. the second it aint profitable hell drop it.
        or nhl many guys have been deeked hard in the head with out a care but after cashcow sidney crosby gets hurt they dont allow it. course tgeir pr relation is the safety of all players to the public but of course they are protecting their money maker.

        always look at the tangible thing of what one has to lose or gain. never belive the moral arguement.

      2. Lion of Zion January 19, 2015 at 7:01 pm

        No, not everyone is a ruthless asshole deep down in their soul. If you look at history just from the point of view of everyone trying to gain as much wealth and affluence for themselves, your view is very limited. Humans aren’t that rational, we’re driven by emotions most of all, no matter your social standing.

        A lot of prophets and kings, just like their sycophants below them, actually did believe what they were doing was right and just – whether those good intentions translate to improvement for their subjects, is of course nothing guaranteed.

        Just like on the other hand you had tyrants who actively harmed their subjects without sensible reason, just on a sadistic whim that clearly undermines their regime. Even the most powerful men out there are still just people like you and me.

        That’s a nice story. In the real world though, acting in one’s self interest (or in the interest of one’s genes) and rationalizing after the fact in order to feel like (or be perceived by others as) the “good guy” doesn’t make someone a ruthless asshole; it makes them human.

        I think you got the chicken before the egg a little bit here….. A government can initially be a force for good, but where you have career politicians, they rely on funding from the elites and thus bend to their needs….. Singapore for example pays every politician $1M a year, so they have a position that a.) they don’t want to lose and b.) is beyond bribery and corruption.

        Government sinks into Oligarchy when those running it, constantly need funding…… otherwise it can be reasonable….

      15. Pelosi Sarcoma January 23, 2015 at 1:40 am

        Also, you’re liable for US taxes even if you leave the US and NEVER come back. Now that’s true slavery! Even Canadians can leave Canada w/o renouncing their citizenship and stop paying Canadian taxes.

      16. Tikaani January 23, 2015 at 8:38 pm

        We are not even free to renounce our citizenship anymore.

        It now costs $2350 for the citizenship renunciation form. It was free up until early the 2000’s when a fee of $400 was established, and they raised it again in 2014. Do you think it costs the government $2350 to process those forms?

        @Roosh_V:disqus, I propose you colonize the moon. It’s the only sterile land left in the nearest 500,000 km. We should be able to avoid the exit fees if we leave from the US. Plus, I don’t know how much longer it’s going to be before the inter-planetary travel administration is established. Then there will be no hope for escape.

      WHY do we have to give up a citizenship when we can just acquire another one if we want to??? Why do y’all folks always keep looking to giving up something BEFORE acquiring anything?? How about adding a citizenship instead of subtracting?

      1. PrepZ January 19, 2015 at 1:01 pm

        Because, as long as you are a US citizen you are REQUIRED TO PAY US TAXES ON ALL WORLDWIDE INCOME, regardless of where you live or where you earn your money.

        Search Google for stories of non-resident citizens born in foreign countrires to parents who are US citizens, who have never set foot on US soil having lived in their birth country all their lives. The IRS is searching out these people and demanding they pay taxes to the US. Because the US uses the pricipals of Jus Sanguinis (by the blood) as determining citizenship, these poor slaves are considered US citizens from birth, and are beholden to US law — especially the tax code! These poor bastards are open to criminal charges of tax evasion and failure to file tax returns by a country they’ve never known, simply because one or both of their parents are or were US citizens. You can’t make this stuff up.

        If that’s not enough to convince you that dual citizenship is no escape, then just do a little reading on the nefarious FACTA legislation that’s been in effect for a couple of years, but is really bearing down on foreign countries in 2015. It basically compells foreign banks, financial institutions, businesses and even persons who deal with US citizens to REPORT INFORMATION TO THE IRS. It’s a flagrant disregard for national sovereignty of nation states and the rule of law, not to mention the most abusive intrusion into privacy of foreign institutions.

      2. Morrison January 19, 2015 at 1:12 pm

        PrepZ – good points made. Essentially any country that wants to use the U.S. dollar has to table dance for America. Switzerland was strong armed into disclosing american investors. When computers became a part of banking, that was the very beginning of the end of secrecy.

      3. FormerCanadian January 19, 2015 at 1:18 pm

        Oh, my bad! Canadians do not have to pay taxes when living broad, but Americans have to.
        I’ve heard a lot about IRS requiring ALL American citizens to report all the earnings and shit.
        USA is getting even worse than the Soviet Union was years ago. USA means slavery disguised as a democracy!

      4. shmiggen January 20, 2015 at 11:01 am

        I’m a dual citizen from Canada and living in the States. Americans do have to complete an income tax form even when living abroad, but they do not have to “pay” twice, know what I mean? The income tax form is just a formality. You pay income tax just once, in the nation you are residing, on the income you earned there. No “double payment” occurs when filing the american forms. Its just declaration.

      5. al January 19, 2015 at 6:59 pm

        Not only that. You are NOT free to give up your US citizenship…..

        You have to pay !! To do so.

        What happens if you cant afford it ???

        Sounds like slavery to me….

    4. seth datta January 19, 2015 at 11:13 am

      We are already slaves – it is just about a matter of degree. What is freedom? Are you truly free – or just brainwashed to believe you are? It is understandable many people lash out at the thought that they are in some part enslaved – and in ways that you cannot even imagine until you are confronted with the horrific-ness of it all.

    5. PrepZ January 19, 2015 at 12:45 pm

      You obviously don’t have a clue as to what’s involved to give up your citizenship as you’ve never even looked into it.

      Your US guberment makes giving up your slavery a very complex and difficult process, not to mention it will cost you some $$. And, they tax you on the way out, using a mark-to-market approach of tallying your assets. So, if you have wealth and decide to expatriate to escape the slavery of taxation, you’re in for a big surprise as the IRS will demand it’s “fair share” of tax dollars based on current market value of your assets — whether or not you have cash to cover the new 28% capital gains tax (used to be 15% before Obamacare tax increases) is not the IRS’s problelm. You’ll be expected to pay your taxes in full, even if it means liquidating assets, closing businesses, etc. And, that’s assuming the State Department will even allow you to renounce. There are plenty of cases on the books of the DoS DENYING legal and legitimate renunciations by US citizens.

      Now, when you’re gumerment’s “official” debt is over 100% of GDP and they are in desperate need of tax revenues to keep borrowing from the Fed, then why would they allow productive producers and tax payers from leaving their tax prison.

      We ARE slaves. And it’s increasingly impossible to escape. As Roosh states below, to paraphrase, you can leave one prison for another — one plantation for another feudal estate. At best, you can minimize the weight of your chains. But even if you could live on the moon, I’m certain the world’s powers have already carved up who own that rock. I know the US has planted six flags on the moon and certainly has claimed those areas as it’s own.

      Now for the $164,000 question: the US may own you and I, but how owns the US? Hint, the lender owns the borrower, and the US is the largest borrower in all of human history.

      1. al January 19, 2015 at 7:02 pm

        I get your point but u are mistaken on one point.

        The pyramids were not built by slaves……

    6. Morrison January 19, 2015 at 1:03 pm

      “…we are free to give up our citizenship leave the country at any time…”

      Wrong. If you read the process of renouncing US citizenship, the government has the right not to grant it. In other words, the American government has already become quasi soviet.

      The only way how you could honestly make that point is if anyone can save money, but his intergalactic spaceship and leave the planet for an uninhabited friendly planet and live there in peace without money. Otherwise you will be subject to control – even if you live by yourself in a hut in some remote woods will your children be taken from you if you do not adhere to certain regulations that the government has put out for you to follow – all governments to this.

    8. SlickyBoy January 22, 2015 at 4:56 pm

      Have you ever explored the legal requirements (more like barriers rivaling the Berlin Wall ) that an American has to go through to renounce their citizenship, even if they do move away permanently? Its next to impossible to do. We are indeed slaves to a greedy government that refuses to let go.

      And as Roosh pointed out, governments are everywhere and in the end, all have similar tendencies.

    9. ADDA5 March 13, 2015 at 1:13 am

      So how about I come over your house uninvited and start to order you around at gun point. Make you serve me. When you protest about the injustice of your enslavement, I will tell you that you are free to leave your house and go somewhere else. So there, you’re not a slave!

    10. Anonymous age 72 March 26, 2015 at 11:23 am

      Hey, nil, have you actually investigated what is involved in giving up US citizenship? If not, check it out. You have to pay X percent of your net worth anywhere in the world, even if you already paid taxes on it as you earned it.

    The difference between the current oligarchies and the totalitarian regimes of the past:

    1) Where are people in oppressive regimes were more or less aware of their conditions, people today don’t realize that they’re enslaved because they’re constantly distracted by corporate owned media/entertainment and are continuously engaging in mindless consumerism.

    2) Faux Democracy – The sheeple are given a false sense of power through democratic process which is meaningless and makes no real difference. The US for example is an oligarchy with two puppet parties for the masses to choose from. That’s like North Korea having a Socialist Party and a Communist Party and calling itself democratic.

    3) The people are too busy fighting each other over stupid shit like gay marriage, GamerGate, relgion, and whatever other topics that are trending on Twitter. Political Left vs. Right is the most distracting and inane battle going on to keep the masses from uniting against the Elites. The Elites or the Oligarchy of Government and Corporations will always rule over people as long as the sheeple are too busy fighting amongst one another by calling each other names like, “racist,” “Marxist,” “misogynist,” “feminist” etc.

    1. seth datta January 19, 2015 at 11:22 am

      This current regime is global and is run by people sworn to destroy the white race and do the same/enslave all others. In our current era of nuclear weapons, that is possible. The real problem is the perpetrators have enslaved us to a fragile system of pseudo-wealth whilst they own the real assets. Also, they look white but are not, and own Russia too (it was owned since Bolshevism of the 1917s, which killed 100 million white Christian Russians alone). The Kings and Nobles of Europe protected the people of the past, but have intermarried into this group, hence their inability and unwillingness to continue to do so. Ultimately, this last war of the west-versus-islam will exhaust both sides, so the third part orchestrating this can try to own it all.

    I think many know, though most people in society won’t admit it, but governments in the 21st century are more-or-less a pantomime show for the bankers and oligarchs who really run countries, and whom are international. It is only logical that if you follow the money, you end up with who is REALLY in charge, and if youy follow this rabbit hole, you end up with some pretty depressing conclusions…

    For example, we are educated (read: brainwashed) to BELIEVE we live in a democracy where our rights really matter – but you get a choice of two or more political parties, all of whom are paid for by bankers’ lobbyists, so it is no surprise that when a president/prime minister acts, you end up with either candidate leading you down the path to the exact same place as the other guy would’ve taken you. The worst thing is Joe Average thinks he has a choice, when it is just an ILLUSION – the bankers buy off both sides, and any others, including setting up false opposition.

    That’s why Hollywood releases films like the matrix (yep, the bankers own ALL media, more or less, even many of the ‘tinfoil hat’ sites). They cannot resist TELLING YOU THAT YOU ARE A SLAVE, because they need to get you to accept your enslavement in their Godless society. If they do not get you to mentally accept this, they have a problem because their entire society depends on obedience. Unfortunately, taking the red pill is something that is very rare if you take it beyond dating, because some of those tinfoil hat sites, controlled as they may be, contain truths that most people CANNOT accept. Truth is beyond their understanding, it is too uncomfortable to contemplate reality, and they prefer the matrix and it lies. Even up until their dying day caused by the collapse of this system, and the loss of their assets, which is not too far off. Even technology is used to track and catalogue, even manipulate us on a level most would not even believe, for you have to ‘manage’ the cattle so they don’t go off on you and rebel against your system.

    The worst thing is that I have known of some of the uber-upper class of my society, and whilst I did not accept their explanation to me that they could do what they can because they can get away with it, I do accept that however people are fooled, the 10% of self-determination each person has counts for a lot individually and in aggregate, and if large population groups are stupid/spiritually blinded enough to do bad shit that has only short-term gain for themselves, then they do reap the consequences of their actions. You cannot just turn some guy who rules the roost for four-or-so years into a demigod, into an idol upon whom you place all of your woes. Most if not all of us are to blame for the state of affairs today, especially the older generations who have failed us in the West. The problem is that since most people are not grown-up-adults, especially feminists, there is no solution to the problem aside from educating a new generation well (which the upper class are not interested in, they want slaves) or much of the domestic population dying (which is how all ancient empires ended when they embraced a debased currency, feminism, a loss of patriarchy and of God playing a role in their societies – this last one being controversial to some, but arguably true nonetheless).

    I draw people’s attention to one last group of exhibits. Firstly, almost all social media brainwashes people – for example, I like the song ‘loyal’ by Chris Brown. But if you play it to children, or ‘sex-and-the-city’ to most adults who act like children, the society will be brainwashed to become the very thing that they are watching and lose all sense of being a responsible member of society to others’ and the next generation. Feminists are to blame for a weakening of white society and consequent continued exploitation of other cultures in a world that has abundant resources for 33 billion people (until the UN ruled by banksters revised this value from the 1980s, as they don’t want to share these resources). Secondly, many men and women are materialistic and sex-addicts, losing all sight of long-term goals for short-term gain and this has been a perennial problem since the dawn of man, which is why though religion is arguably the poorest path to God, it provided at least a measure of structure; having a ‘do what thou wilt’ society is tantamount to having a society where we all use each other and treat each other badly, hence single motherhood and rape-fraud etc.. we see today. Lastly, it is too late for the west. This point is the hardest to swallow. I hate reading about ‘us-versus-the-feminists’. It is much bigger than that, or even ‘the West versus the Muslims’, which is actually a manipulation and the last war versus the west and white people, for when the Muslims are gone, they will be the only group left with any power that is rapidly being stripped away from them. If you believe certain circles, this is the last war (protracted, covert) versus humanity, where we are all to be enslaved to a small transnational elite or be destroyed. I have set these points out here for this generation and any future scholars as such debates will be increasingly suppressed in future and so the knowledge may largely be lost. I hope that anyone who does find it can take away something useful from what is set out about the times we live in today.

  6. FormerCanadian January 19, 2015 at 11:43 am

    If y’all really want to find out how a real modern day government looks like then you should come and live/work 2-3 years in a hell hole called Canada and preferably in the most fucked up, upside down and inside out politically correct city of Toronto.
    Toronto managed to combine all the factors and criteria mentioned above.
    Canada is built on values like lies, hypocrisy, double or even triple standards, political correctness, quota hiring, feminism and affirmative action.
    I’ve never seen a country more fucked up, brainwashed, populated with robotic sheeple than Canada. And at the same time these sheeple have audacity to claim that Canada is #1 in the world.
    Any person, be it male or female, who dares to have an own opinion, to differ from the rest, to stand up and be counted and to lead by example automatically becomes “enemy of the Canadian state” and if this person happen to be a male then he’s also a BIG NO NO when it comes to dating or having a relationship with.
    Canadians are the most lonely people in the world and sure thing Canada is #1 when it comes to number of dating sites in any country in the world or the total number of internet dating profiles per capita.
    I still tend to disagree that we are already slaves! I live the life I want and the way I want. If every male had enough inner courage to withstand the pressure from the mainstream then the world would’ve been totally different these days.

      I’m currently in TO and plan to leave when I can. Where do you live now? I’m assuming from your name that you’re in a better place now.

      1. FormerCanadian January 19, 2015 at 11:55 am

        Correct assumption! I used to live in Toronto, Humber Bay Park area, Marine Parade drive.
        Try to leave Toronto as soon as you only can! Do not waste your time in this hell hole of a city.
        Right now I’m living in Southern Ukraine, but have traveled the world extensively and lived in many different countries.
        Living here compared to Canada is like day and night with Canada being the night. I wish every North American male could get a chance to experience the life of a male in Eastern Europe.
        I’ve been happily married for 6 years now and never regretted my decision to leave Canada behind for good!

      2. Skoll January 19, 2015 at 12:10 pm

        How did you meet your wife?

        What does a foreigner do for health coverage in Ukraine?

        I want to come and research UA but if my appendix bursts what would happen? What would they do if Inhad no health coverage in UA as a foreign traveler- let me die on the street?

        How can one look into becoming a Ukrainian National either as a single man or via marrying a Ukrainian girl?

        I’ve noticed sites like and are so full of talent whereas the Western equivalents are awful and all the hot girls in America are early 20s and want an extrovert clown frat bro guy not an solder guy so if you’re 30+ and love hot white girls EE is the logical choice.

      10. FormerCanadian January 19, 2015 at 1:26 pm

        You ain’t gonna believe it but I met my wife online on one of the Russian dating sites.

        You can buy a Health Insurance in Ukraine and be covered for any kind of “medical accidents” so to say.

        But even if you have NONE then local hospitals ain’t gonna let you die on the street! NO WAY, MAN!!!

        It’s hard to become a Ukrainian or Russian national as a single man, but possible via marrying a local girl. The rules and regulations ain’t that strict as those ones in USA or Canada.

        The dating webpages you’ve mentioned are full of shit and gold diggers. Fuck them!!

        Try this:

        That’s where you can find real and genuine local females! And they have an English version too!

        P.S. Love your saying that North American women need an “extrovert clown frat bro guy”, soooooo true;)))

    1. FormerCanadian January 19, 2015 at 12:18 pm

      I ain’t no Roosh, but my wife is Eastern European, so I have a legitimate reason to throw my 5 cents in;)
      Dating an American female is like taking part in a African Safari Rally (like Paris-Dakar) with your American woman as your guide who’d be constantly giving you wrong directions, ask for higher speeds when the road requires a speed limit and ask you to slow down when you really can go a lot faster, make wrong pit stops, buy expensive but useless junk for the car only to blame YOU at the end of the Rally for all the faults, losses and setbacks and to leave for another more successful driver taking YOUR OWN CAR with her only to turn him into yet another loser during the next rally.
      Dating and Eastern European female is like getting into a sexy Lamborghini with a sexy lady, getting out and driving on a highway while enjoying your lady in a mini skirt and high heels by your side and she’ll let YOU to take her on a LIFE JOURNEY while giving you all the right directions when you are driving and giving you a helping hand when your Lamborghini requires any kind of repairs and maintenance.

And that those that seek to place heel upon the throat of liberty will fall to the cry of freedom!”

        All historians are baffled by the collapses of ancient civilizations. Ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, ancient India, ancient Rome. Hm, what did they all have in common? Was there a certain group of evil ones present in all of the above? How could these extremely advanced civilizations just go out like candles? If you are mystified, just look around yourself, you can see it happening again. Several wise men have pointed it out again and again over the last thousands of years. It’s the same criminals every time. But that is not PC enough.

      2. Anonymous age 72 March 26, 2015 at 11:36 am

        Actually there is a book on this very topic. SEX AND CULTURE, by Dr. Unwin, UK, 1934.

        He studied many civilizations and learned that it all relates to the sexual liberty that women have. How prosperous the nation is; their religious practices; everything directly related to the sexual liberty of women.

        Per his book, the US has mere short years to exist.

        Book available, but horribly expensive. My very poor copy cost me $160 from UK. A really good copy will run you $750 or more.

        There may be a copy online, but hard to read that way.

        See my comment below at how Jews are actually Canaanites but lie of their origins. They are supposed to serve Japheth (White Man) and Shem (Asians/East Asians), but instead, they try to kill off Japheth and enslave much of Shem.

  11. Daedalus January 19, 2015 at 1:04 pm

    For all of history humans have required a way to organize and govern society. Government is the path by which we, as a collective, do so. Is government always going to be perfect? No. Is a social system always going to have inherent flaws and favor those who can leverage those flaws efficiently? Yes. Lets use economics as an example. The flaws and benefits of capitalism has been debated and will continue to be without end. The fact is that capitalism is not perfect. A system is not going to work in every single situation in a dynamic world. Let’s face it, sometimes capitalism is not the ideal system. Sometimes, democracy is not the ideal government. In some instances maybe a aristocracy would be better for the society.

    So, at this point you have to ask yourself: In this world where no human, or group, can create the perfect government, what system do you want to be a part of? A dictatorship, a democracy, a theocracy (haha imagining you in a theocracy is funny), an oligarchy? You have to admit that starting off in a democratic/capitalist society that you had a better chance of learning how, and finding the information, to create the truly independent lifestyle that you enjoy today. What you have done with your website would have been infinitely harder with a different governmental regime. Somebody as traveled as you should have cultivated a sense of thankfulness for what a deal he had compared to the rest of humanity and it’s history. Am I sitting in America under “perfect” governmental conditions? No, I also see a lot of flaws. However, the truth is that in America I still have it a lot better that 96% of human history.

    The improved version of slavery is a slave who believes to be free accepting a lower standard of living due to “having lived beyond his means” (government indebting itself furthering only elite goals without hardly profiting the slaves) or now because of the global warming scam and CO2, which all mammals exhale. The slaves will defend the matrix of slavery as they believe almost 100% coming from the paid propaganda-shills like the media or even the manipulated academia. Our current system of control based on fraudulent usury monetary system is the most powerful so far putting to shame the Romans, Alexander the Great or Genghis Khan. No one even knows who those slave-masters are exactly only being able to name some members or mid to high-level workers.

  13. Brian January 19, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    I agree with this post to a very large extent, but I think you’ve forgotten one of the most important means of escaping the system, and that is via collective revolution. And yes, as you say, this does “just” lead to more carrot from a new regime; but in recent history (the last few hundred years) this process has demanded more and more carrot, so that each time the ruling power is less and less elite.

    Eventually it is conceivable that the elite-ness of the ruling power can be put in check enough (by the structure of the government established by the revolutionaries) that the resulting government will not inspire further revolutions.

    I am glad to see that the owner of the website gets it. Unfortunately too many are “semi-awake.” It pains me to see many who are aware of the issues surrounding radical feminism but then go on to extol the virtues of joining the military, or being a lawyer. Totally abhorrent stuff that seems normal until you truly wake up. Bridging the gap between the liberty and anti-feminist communities should be a goal for 2015. II have often called into the Liberty Radio Network in attempts to do this myself. There are so many good resources on the internet now that there’s really not an excuse to be ignorant anymore. When you do this you realize that the female supremacists are just one evil head of a many-headed monster.

    I disagree with a few of the points. Government is not necessarily bad.

    There are many legitimate purposes of a government, outlined in the constitution.

    Despite the many incredibly stupid policies of our government, it does still serve some purposes which benefit the people.

    I look at politics as a battle of interest groups. Some of these interest groups have a better understanding of what good economics is than others. Sometimes both sides of a debate can have legitimate arguments and there is no clear answer on what the best policy is.

    The elites are not a united entity that is trying to rule us as a group. The problem with the elites is that many of them are essentially powerful SJW’s who are totally out of touch with average people, and they don’t make decisions based on reason but rather emotion, a characteristic of SJW’s. They get their information in a cultural marxist echochamber. An example is media mogul Ted Turner. If you look at his thoughts on any issue, it is clear he doesn’t put that much thought into it, but sides strongly with the liberal elite.

    There are many interest groups who have a better viewpoints such as those favoring smaller government, tighter border control, cutting government entitlements, and getting rid of controlling regulations. I think it is worth it to support political candidates such as Rand Paul who despite his flaws, would go against the liberal elitists and actually try to cut government.

  19. jimlukas January 20, 2015 at 1:10 am

    State monopoly on violence, in political science and sociology, the concept that the statealone has the right to use or authorize the use of physical force. It is widely regarded as a defining characteristic of the modern state.

    In his lecture “Politics as a Vocation” (1918), the German sociologist Max Weber defines the state as a “human community that (successfully) claims the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force within a given territory.” Under feudalism, no lords, including the king, could claim a monopoly over the use of violence, since their vassalspromised to serve them but remained free to exercise power in their fiefdoms. Moreover, the king and the landed nobility had to share power or compete with the Roman Catholic Church. The modern state, according to Weber, emerged by expropriating the means of political organization and domination, including violence, and by establishing the legitimacy of its rule.

    Can you elaborate on how the elite are embracing cultural Marxist policies?
    I agree with you and I think another good way to resist the elites’ control would be to reclaim our work…not labor for them but for ourselves. Not necessarily by owning the means of production but more realistically by owning the product of our work/creation; since we gain meaning through our work.

    1. Grand Designs January 20, 2015 at 2:47 pm

      The entrenchment of and for a pay as you go model in the US political
      process in particular is part and parcel of the warfare/welfare state. Whether Big MIC, Big Agra, Big Pharma, Big Finance…they all capture the machinery and regulation of government. What’s good for them is bad for us all, mostly. The 12 foot (3.6 M) fucking high front and back Affordable Health Care act, written by special interests is enriching the
      insurance companies that are more or less protection rackets. Stocks over 350% for the insurance majors over last 18 mo. If the Sherman Antitrust Act was in full force and price completion were allowed to follow market forces, prices would collapse and big special industry would have to cut the fat quickly to be competitive. But GDP would take a big hit. Yet, the energy that propped up that waste would be redeployed in non-waste efficiencies. Same for housing; prices would collapse if the
      Fed’s polices didn’t artificially inflate values…but hey that would a lot of
      major Big Banking out of business overnight…buried like a mobster with concrete shoes.

      Whether or not you identify “elites” with invested interests, the cultural Marxists enjoyed a free run in the Humanities (where moral relativism joined up with the Marxists) since the late 40s. For these ideas to matriculate it’s taken, a few decades. But, trends could change.

      The American culture is a battle ground between the values
      of self-responsibility and the values of entitlement, or the values of the Free Shit Army. How many Americans pay taxes these days, a 1/3 of the country? Entitlement programs are collapsing Western Governments. Unfunded liabilities in the USA are north of $200 Trillion. Butting
      getting back to the elites or vested interests:

      A culture that does not recognize the importance of individual initiative, self-esteem, and voluntary cooperation, is one of the prerequisites for totalitarianism. Cultural Marxists embrace tribalism (herd), collectivism,
      victimhood, crony/fascist capitalism, feminism in its iteration that extends beyond intent (equal protection of the law), ect..

      Towards freedom embraces a totality which includes: personnel factors (moral ambitiousness, psycho epistemology, self-esteem, individual
      achievement, and mental fitness), cultural factors such as ideology (enlightenment ideas, the pursuit of happiness, happiness as your highest moral achievement and purpose in life) and language and arts and lastly structural factors such as politics and economics.

      Why is Freedom such as hard sell? Swimming upstream is hard,
      I guess.

Can you live in Syria today? Can you take a vacation to Tripoli? While governments are governed by greedy elites, the absence of government is utter chaos, and the least seeming certainty of enjoying life or building dreams would be unthinkable. People living in anarchy have no time to come on the internet, game chicks, or beat pussies up.

    A strong case can be made that the American experiment was doomed from the start with the adoption of the Constitution, many notable men of the time were against it:

    It’s also worth noting that the Founders and their supporters rebelled against the British for far less burdensome taxation and violation of rights than we are subject to today: While the elites surely manipulate the government to their benefit, the group that gets it worst is the middle class, the bottom 50% of Americans pay no income taxes while leeching “benefits”.

    What a bunch of anarchist crap. I mean, several good points, however, reason why we choose to live in a semblance of order is because we never again wanted to experience brutal and animal nature of living in complete “freedom”, where societies are entirely driven by Darwinist principles.

    I would rather live a life of a serf than a life of an animal. Liberal societies are good example of where everything goes when you deregulate stuff. Apply deregulation to other fields and try to imagine what occurs.

    Everybody should study the founding of the US. Yes, it’s a cliche, but the guys who wrote the US constitution really, really understood all these issues. They tried built a compromise between the elite and the common man. They were literally standing between crowds of angry commoners and crowds of rich men with armies, trying to broker a workable compromise before another war started.

    Read the history of the debates during the authoring of the constitution. Everything you wrote here, Roosh, was debated in detail in 1789, and they tried to create a government that would fix (or at least compromise on) these problems.

    250 years later and the US still exists and yes, we have the Elite but we still can balance them by popular power.

    So, I still maintain, the US constitution, for all it’s flaws, is still the best practical, real-world system for preserving good government and protecting the individual from the elite. The various constitutions of other British nations (Canada, UK, Australia) are the parliamentary equivalents.

    Government is a word used to describe formalized power. People who view it as inherently evil are usually butthurt because they’re not the ones in charge. There’s no escaping some sort of government, they’re the natural products of human inequality.

    This sounds like quasi-socialism, “it’s the system, man” kind of hippie cliche’ bullshit. A lot of excuse making here. Rather than make excuses, why not do something about it. Work hard, delayed gratification, and digging one self out of so-called modern “enslavement”. Everyone wants to blame the government, the corporation, the elite, the poor etc for problems. Rarely do people look inward and ask “what are you going to do about it?” Rarely do people adapt to the situation they are given; no matter how unfortunate. Adaption is key to success.

    The elite are not always “immoral”. They tend to be highly educated, hence their rise above the herd. The “elite” have always existed and always will. It is not the elites fault they outsmart the dumb masses and use them as “tools”. Where is the personal responsibility of “the people”? Hierarchies are natural in society. Some would call these Oligarchies. No one gets to finish the race at the same time, holding hands. Oligarchies have always and will always exist in every form of government ranging from Communism to Capitalism. We live, I believe, the best form of government we can create right now and still opportunity is plentiful. We are just spoiled compared to past generations (could you imagine going through the great depression now, do you know the suicide rate)??? This article is a lot of fluff that I would expect from an “Occupy Wall Street” protestor who just took a shit in an alley.

    These elite in power tend to be quite intelligent, having high IQs. Let’s look at Asians for example, on average they make more money than the white man. Asians are considered the “oppressive elite” even though they work hard, extremely family oriented, moral, and logical. Do we blame them for their success as an elite educated class? They worked themselves out of poverty in a matter of a few generations. What are you doing?

    If you want further good reads on the elite, I recommend reading some H.L. Mencken. Might be an eye opener to you proles.

    Someone has been reading Trotsky’s book, Revolution Betrayed. It was there he lamented the failing of the Russian revolution by saying more or less, their big mistake was trying to eliminate the family when they should have been finding a way to replace it.

    Trotsky’s disciples have taken that lesson to heart and are doing a hell of a job finding a (shitty) replacement for the family – big government. This will not end well.

      Prison Notebooks by Gramsci

    So what? I’m living a good life. If I stopped believing in this elite it would be like I stopped believing in god. It might change how I feel but it would make no difference to my life.

    If the wealth of mankind really if being distributed so unevenly, and surely it is, what’s your solution?

    A lot could be said about this, but one phrase comes to mind more than others.
    “Voting is for idiots”
    At least then you don’t kiss their feet.

    As a citizen from one of the most corrupt nations in the world (Mexico) and as a resident of one of the most impoverished and fucked up states of the country (Chiapas), this post touched a spot. Where I live, there’s no sign of progress, since this state is full of politics who don’t make any good to the mayorities. Any illusion of a better life is nowhere to be found, in my opinion. And yes, the elites, the fucking elites. I guess it’s the same in my poor country, since most of our politics have an agenda of “selling” the resources from our nation (recently, oil and ogas were opened to be exploited by foreign companies; in the past, these were “property” of all the mexicans, and strictly restricted to foreigns) supposedly to bring competitivity and cheaper prices, but history has proved otherwise. And taxes, well, I think is a duty for a citizen to give back to his nation, but only and strictly if a nation can guarantee certain rights to the citizen, but in my hometown, there’s no such thing. Fucked up roads, fucked up health and legal services, fucked up and corrupt institutions, and don’t get me started in the police, army, and judiciary sistem. All the tax income is spent in campaigns since politics are always doing the “chapulinazo” (as a semblance of a grasshopper,once they are about to finish their time in their current charge, they prepare to jump to another), and since most people are poor and ignorant, they give their votes for a fucking meal, some seeds to cultive, or any other crap that doesn’t means nothing. I know the feeling of going against the current in a place where everything goes, being a selfish asshole and taking advantage of the ignorants is the way of doing things, where being corrupt is being correct. But sometimes I think everyone deserves what they have in their lives. There’s always an option. And mine has been to march on my own drums, building my bussines, using my degree to help people who really need it, even if it is for free, pissing in the way they do things, and maybe this will bring trouble, but fuck them, at least I’m not a servant of this shitty system.

      Good for you, Romeo, for starting a business. For those who don’t live in Mexico you need to understand that in other parts of Mexico, Chiapas has the same reputation that Romeo describes. Think of it as the East Saint Louis of Mexico.

      Some years ago, my niece from Mexico City went with a charitable group to Chiapas to give antibiotics and other needed medications to a rural clinic. They were surrounded by men with machetes who took the medications; the backpacks; and even their clothes leaving them only with their underwear. This was not the government. As Romeo says, there is always an option. The people of Chiapas get the government they deserve.

      Let me tell you about Romeo’s comment on selling stuff to the foreign folks. The Mexican government has long been taking almost all the GROSS income from Pemex, the Mexican petroleum government. That money is used for public benefits, essentially to buy votes for whichever party is in control at a given time.

      That means no money for petroleum infrastructure maintenance nor new exploration.

      This is akin to a shark eating its own entrails. And, the politicians well knew it. Yet, they couldn’t stop it, because to cut off the social benefits means instant political death. It was widely recognized that eventually there would be no more petroleum sales at all!

      That is why Pemex has been accepting foreign investments. Total desperation to keep things going.

      I remember some years ago, before Carlos Slim’s companies started making new highways for 38 years of the revenue, the new highways were being built by US and European investment companies. One day my wife’s uncle asked me if it were true the revenue from the nearby cuota was going to the US.

      Hell, yes! They had provided hundreds of millions of dollars to build that new highway, and clearly the deal was they got the revenue, win; lose; or draw; for a certain time. then, the highway went free and clear to the Mexican people. No one is forced to use the new highway, and it cost the Mexicans not a cent.

      Tio is not well educated. All he knows is Mexican money was going to the US, period. No awareness of the hundreds of millions of dollars which came to Mexico from the US, making work for thousands of Mexican construction workers, and later thousands of transit and maintenance workers. And he was pissed off. And, he gets to vote. That attitude has as much to with the problems in Mexico as corruption does.

      Mexico, except perhaps Chiapas, heh, heh, is changing. And, Romeo’s attitude is part of the reason why. Romeo has decided to say F’K the government and is starting to make things happen all by himself. What I, tongue in cheek, call Yankee capitalism at its finest.

      Those in the US against large amounts of Mexican immigration sometimes say the Mexicans should stay home and fix their country. The illegals do come back with new ideas and are changing the country. One project at a time.

      And, it is people like Romeo making it happen. You are a good man, Romeo.

      NOTE: The comments about Pemex eating its own entrails comes from a large big city newspaper which ran an expose on it. I have no personal knowledge. I love Mexico, but do not have the knowledge of an educated citizen of the nation.

    The new elites, such as Zuckerburger, show this to be oh so true. Constantly pushing globalism, initiatives to give more people internet to profit from, etc., often at the expense of American workers is a classic example of an elite who give zero fucks about his communities, and is just chasing more and more pointless money and “success”.

    The book “The Theory of the Leisure Class” by Thorstein Veblen is the absolute MUST READ if one wants to understand human society and the origins of the all of above descriebed phenomena.

  43. lordoftheflies January 24, 2015 at 10:43 pm

    This post makes you seem incredibly ignorant. A lot of the points you make have validity. Granted, you employ hyperbole at nearly every opportunity in an effort to produce the most extreme reaction possible. You acknowledge absolutely none of the advantages that accompany governed societies and civilization, when in reality government is a fundamental prerequisite to the peaceful and relatively free existence that we all take for granted.

    Take a trip back to the good ol’ days before government. Picture a highly fractured world, delineated only by small, fiercely hostile tribal groups competing for limited territory and resources. Read: ceasless violence, a life defined by strife and instability.

    Those “elites” that you couldn’t shut up about – they’re still there. They’re the warlord chiefs who triumph in battle. Now they subjugate their vanquished foes, grow more formidable, and amass power. A select few still make the rules, and everyday life as experienced by average joe is subject to their “government.”

    The problem is human nature, not the institutions and organizations that have arisen out of the NECESSITY to curb the harmful aspects of our nature, aspects that manifest within the government framework (corruption/ exploitation) but are not caused by it.

    Are you experimenting with anarchist thought Roosh?

    It’s an interesting philosophy that I embraced when younger, but I’m not sure such a system can function in the long run. Humans desire power and will generally do what they can get away with.

    An inquisitive alien visits the planet to check on our progress as a
    species, and gets into a conversation with the first person he meets.
    The alien discovers that we live under the rule of a thing called
    “government”, and wants to understand more about what “government” is,
    what it does, and why it exists.

  46. QNgm305 March 21, 2015 at 2:23 am

    Sir (Mr. Roosh V),

    I just have some doubts to clear. I believe that the global elites, corporates, politicians, businesspersons, national & international organizations, corrupt governments, etc, are controlling the world with their oppressive oligarchy & corrupt policies. I can also understand that very wealthy, resourceful & famous people of the world (like celebrities, sports-persons, media-persons, actors, actresses, models, writers, artists, corporate leaders, etc), are also in their control.

    I can also understand that several groups of people, like women, men, upper class people, rich people, cultural elites, etc, are parts of them as well. Plus, I also realize that the global elites (& their related people) oppressively control almost EVERY field/profession/area of the world, governments, media, television, movies, newspapers, magazines, internet, education systems, societies, social issues, etc, through various modes of brainwashing, propaganda, conspiracies, controversies, distractions, killings, murders, assassinations, corruptions, & so many more.

    But, at the same time, when I highlight these points in questions, answers & comments that I post/publish on various internet websites, including prestigious ones like Yahoo!, Yahoo! Answers, Quora, Salon, Slate, NYTimes, Huffington Post, The Guardian, Daily Mail, The Telegraph, The Atlantic, CNN, BBC, & so on, I am heavily attacked by feminists, social justice warriors, women, men, reverse-discrimination favoring groups, authors, commenters, etc, & so on.

    Almost ALL of the time, I have been told these kinds of things:-

    ->MOST of the enemies of men are other men, because most of the top elites, billionaires, business-persons, corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, government leaders, rich people, politicians, etc, are men, & that male dominated things in the world, don’t want to face revolt or protests from middle-class, working-class & poor men & boys. THAT is why, more than 90% of the government funding, scholarships, facilities, schools, colleges, special privileges, legal systems, etc, are biased towards women & girls, and their needs & rights, almost exclusively.

    ->Men themselves love & give their lives for women, due to romantic, emotional & sexual attractions & pleasures; including evolutionary & biological reasons.

    ->ONLY women have MOSTLY been oppressed throughout the inception of humankind, because most discriminations & deaths against men & boys, was done usually by other men (the rich ones; the resourceful & powerful ones)

    ->Things like reverse-discriminations; ignoring the genuine needs of men & boys; ignoring the areas of suffering of men & boys; reducing ONLY the male population; affirmative actions, quotas, reservations, scholarships & facilities ONLY for women & girls; ignoring high-paying female-dominated fields where men & boys are in the minority; giving more value of life to ONLY women & girls; (& nearly infinitely more) are almost FULLY JUSTIFIED, because human males are mostly ”biologically disposable” due to not having wombs, eggs & abilities to give birth to lives and continue the human species.

    ->Men are better than women, due to cultural & reversible reasons, while women are better than men, due to IRREVERSIBLE & BIOLOGICAL reasons.

    ……………….and so on & on & on & on & on & on & on……………………..

    Now, I am NOT against genuine feminism or genuine men’s rights; I am not religious; I do believe in scientific concepts & advanced technologies; I fully understand abiogenesis & evolution; I also understand trans-humanism, biological immortality, etc; & so on. BUT, at the same time, I DISLIKE reverse discriminations; gross generalizations; gynocentrism; genuine misandry & misogyny; male disposability; female supremacy; poverty; abolition of free markets; too much of socialism, communism & Marxism; bad habits; & so on.

    So WHY are modern feminists NOT understanding the GENUINE difficulties & issues faced by innocent men & boys of this world? Why don’t the elites think of something other ways of earning incomes without harming genuine human rights? WHY are men, who are equalists, egalitarians, etc, DISCARDED from media, society & internet? Why can’t we all just get along & improve our lives?

    I sincerely hope that humanity sorts out these problems in the near future.

    “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.” Animal Farm, George Orwell. All elite members who comprise the leadership of any government are the same: they are human, and humans (despite the myth of altruism) are looking out for themselves to the detriment of others (citizens) and consequently, treat the masses accordingly.

      Hi Heather, congratulations on passing the California Bar. I have recently written the exams to become a barrister in the UK and awaiting my results on Friday- hope I do well.
      What area of law are you interested in? Have you got a place with any firms?
      Best, Mike

    Quite simply the government of the United States is corrupt. Wow what a revelation! There were laws built into the system from day one (by our forefathers) to help the peoples (us) to regain control away from those who are tempted by greed and using the power of government for personal gain. Much of the those “original” protection are eroded by amendment, the remainder by apathy. It is easy to point a finger at those who are corrupting our society. If you look back further in time, the actions of the McCarthy era and the horrible actions of Edgar Hoover are just blips of history that went uncorrected. Social values decline and accelerate downhill daily. The only place to start with reform is with yourself, and then your family by doing what is right. If you do not know the difference between right and wrong, then I suggest you learn quickly.

    There are no just governments. GOVERNING MEN is the RESPONSIBILITY of each man unto himself! The Bill of Rights is a document format meant to carried ON THE PERSON at all times along with the original us constitution, which will set the precedent and jurisdiction of any other ARTICLE you are CLAIMING.
