Xi Jinping, Putin, Pres. of American: Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton are the present world powers. They all believe themselves and their governments as master minds that know that is best for the people. America of the three is the only one that requires affirmation of the choice at a regular interval and limits the period at the top. But those restrictions end at the leader. The rest of the worlds nations have government that fall between these three. The nations classify the people into members of classes with the master mind class on the top. It contains government and economic leaders. There are international classes to tie the nations together made up of the upper tiers of classes.
Master Minds throughout history, not new to this period of time. Rome and China civilizations or any of the great empires had the same belief. The only change is that with global speed of transportation and communication any empire has to be at a global level.
UN and the international court are made up of those in the upper class of people that are smarter then the rest of us, by the luck of birth and education and influence, Master minds. They believe they having better everything growing up and for this reason they have far superior thinking capacity. Like a parent that acts to protect children, who's minds have not reached adulthood. These elitist mind have reach the master mind level well above adulthood minds. We in comparison have child level minds of a 5 yr old or less for most and a few teen age minds.
So long as they keep us in the dark and do their work behind close doors and do not seem to affect us directly they get away with the take over of the world. Big business, national politicians, academics are all considered to think at the master minded level, they are our master minds. See Napoleon Hill's book Law of success, to get a better description of the business Master Mind.
The world is a kabuki stage and the talk of trickle down economics and world court, all trade agreements including TTIP, NAFTA, etc. all defense agreements like NATO are just side acts to keep the audience entertained, Rome's Circus and blood sports, and welfare.
The real issue is maintaining the master mind class and have those that serve them in the lower classes or tiers. You see history has shown that no previous government master mind class has existed for more than a hundred generations. And the master minds in their wisdom do not see that a class system is unstable and will always collapse.
The drive to create, to puff one-self up to believe that there are humans with superior minds and that master mind capacity passes down by inheritance into offspring is intoxicating. History has shown that wealth is loss on average, unless government places barriers to prevent it, in about three generations. And the barriers put in place create the instability, discontent in the lower classes always develops.
It is obvious to the dullest minds, fallibility of the governing and business class. Why, because its ranks filled with those that the barriers prevent from operating at their capacity but forced to work at an incompetent level. The bureaucracy, policing, military, and business managements people in the tier classes below the master minds exist to man-the-barriers.
The Declaration of Independence is a creation of a lower tier that realized that barriers prevent them from ever achieving a higher level. Parliamentary form of government at the time was the least tyrannical on the planet. But still a master mind based society. Martin Luther about two centuries earlier realized that Christianity was not better, it too created barriers and classes. The protestant religion, based I assume on the word protest, said that God does not believe in classes and to read it for your selves, the Bible. This theme expanded between the two revolutions but the message is the same. Natural law is Marin Luther and Jesus's message that is independent of religion. It is the nature of a biological species. No member of a species can predetermine the long-term place on the spectrum of thinking capacity and leadership of their offspring.
The Constitution, Bill of Rights, and some of the latter amendments is the codifying of the Declaration of Independent principles into a governing foundation of law. No class society and Federalism is a reasonable way of creating a government that emulates spontaneous order of free trade.
It is up to this generation in America to purge the master mind warts that have developed over mostly the last century on the laws of the nation. Article 5 provides the spontaneous order of Federalism to voice discontent of the people into amendments to re-codify the declaration instead of the spilling of blood in a revolution. The founders understood the hypnotic power of men to puff one-self up to believe that there are humans with superior minds. And to conspire together for their own gain an believe they are doing it for the nations good.
For those in other nations without the ability to amend your governments laws the path will be more difficult but remember that government do bent to the will of the people or collapse. Many choose to bent before they break. Religion has been the organizing and driving force in history. That is why master mind governments make religion an enemy of the people. Islam incorporated the power of religion into the government forever corrupting the natural laws that are present by religion. Master mind thinking is incompatible with natural law. It is incompatible with the Old Testament foundation of Islam. No Prophet has ever been a government leader after Moses for life. Prophets have stepped up to defend the people but stepped down once the threat ended.
What is the history of Muslim leaders? IF they have not stepped down then they do not have breath of God within them. Prophet are average men in all other respects.
