Things are looking up...for a very few of us

What we are witnessing today is the end of the
Western Enlightenment. As usual, the end is
predicated on the beginning, and the sole culprit
was and is the tacit belief in political
government, that is, government based on the use
of force and fraud. It never worked. Never. It
can’t be fixed. Thoreau knew this:

“That government is best which governs not at
all. And when men are prepared for it, that will
be the kind of government which they will have.”
--Civil Disobedience, 1849

We should begin to prepare. The State is
crumbling.(slightly modified clip -jo)

Highly recommended.

There are some fine links you'll want to read
