A Power Derived From Mistrust of Police and Government

There is a reason why there is so little trust of government, i.e. the state, which, however, there is very little awareness of, because the academics we look to as authorities on understanding society, the state and civilisation are not being honest with us - or themselves - about their true nature.
They want us to identify with the state as our nation, because it is their patron and/or employer, which rewards them in return for their moral support.
Like all states, America is not a nation, but a mercenary "patron state" deceitfully posing as a nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse, to their own personal advantage and that of favoured clients, especially the wealthy and, of course, academics. And this at the expense of society at large, leading ultimately to its self-destruction, which is why all past states and civilisations have fallen. Our own civilisation is rapidly heading towards a massive fall.
This is a difficult, painful and frightening truth to recognise and face up to, which is why so few are prepared to do so, but it is what we urgently need to do if we want to try and prevent this fall.
