A way must be found to somehow firmly bind the state itself within the limits prescribed by Natural Law. A constitution that would limit the state’s power to the protection of our God-given rights and very little else must be devised. The towering pyramid of centralized power must be lowered and the loci of power spread throughout society, even and especially down to the smallest unit: the individual.

2016: How Truth was Destroyed So You’d Buy the Government’s Propaganda
Absurdity went full tilt in 2016, and thanks to the utterly fake issues of fake news and Russian hackers, we’re now in danger of losing freedom of speech and the press.
“We’re an empire now,” Karl Rove nefariously asserted in 2004, “and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
Rove might have said that 12 years ago, but the words hauntingly describe our situation in 2016 — Oxford Dictionaries, incidentally, named “post-truth” the international word of the year — with facts seemingly relative, truth debatable, and a falsely-premised war on fake news, Orwell must be rolling in his grave.
In fact, given these telling circumstances, perhaps Oxford Dictionaries didn’t go far enough — this year epitomizes a new era of post-coherence. Rove and his ilk — the dynasties Bush and Clinton, reigning powers for nearly 30 years — must chuckle behind closed doors as Americans quarrel savagely over the authenticity of falsehoods and facts, alike.
With ostensibly everything now up in the air, the U.S. power apparatus has inarguably ‘created a new reality’ — one in which doubt has been so instilled as to obstruct and thwart the dissemination of accurate, factual information.
U.S., MSM Claims Of Russian Hacking Lack One Important Ingredient … Evidence
As 2016 comes to a close and, with it, the final 20 days of the dreadful Obama administration, a madness has gripped much of the country that has been concocted, promoted, and drilled into the American psyche by the U.S. government and its corporate media/intelligence agency controlled mainstream corporate media. This new narrative, which has a deeper hold within the American “leftists” (more accurately labeled Democrats) circles around the claims that Russia has essentially launched a coup in the United States by “hacking American elections.”
These claims have been repeated ad nauseum by the President, high-level politicians, and the corporate media ever since shortly after the Trump victory and in the wake of Clinton’s treachery being unearthed by WikiLeaks in the months prior. The U.S. government is now provoking Russia yet again based on something that appears completely fabricated as 2017 appears on the calendar.
Because these claims, also supported by U.S. intelligence agencies, are being circulated minute by minute by the corporate media, they bear some analysis before the world is incinerated on the basis of ignorance, paranoia, and deception.
