Trickle-down, tumble-down. The demise of nationhood.

#1  Postby Arthur Methoxy » Aug 28, 2013 6:24 pm

A new social phenomena is emerging that is bringing an end to the concept and actuality of society and nation, and an end to politics itself.

Many nations are run, in part, by bodies that stand outside, or are independent of, any nation or society. Here, America leads the way. In the ideal case (republicanism), American society is governed not by American society but entirely by nation-independent, global agencies. In such a situation American society has no government of its own. Instead, there is simple financial policing of the target society (America) by nation-independent agencies who take wealth out of that society. This wealth is returned in a measure sufficient to maintain order within the target society. The method by which an invasive agency returns wealth is charity, of which (financial) reward is a specific instance. Also called trickle-down.

And only one man can save us, his name is Arthur Methoxy. For years his analysis and ideas were laughed off as meaningless nonsense. But now, 20 years into the future, it's the 30th of August 2023, and all Arthur's predictions have come true overnight. The world's economy and society is in crisis. The UN has appointed Arthur as president of the world, the survival of human society as we know it depends on his wisdom and leadership.

Seems like a reasonable OP to me - why get banned for that?

And I agree with the post, trickle down is a complete sham.
