Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII -

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion...

The Socialist Project - make each citizen a dependent.

As Weber said, what destroys men is bureaucracy.

by StFerdIII

The goose-stepping onward march of National Socialism. Federal per capita spend in the US went from $7.500 in 1962 [in constant 2005 dollars], to $32.748 in 2010, or a 400% increase. In 2012 the spend per capita should reach $37.000 or 500% more than in 1962. Per capita income rose during the same period from $15.243 to $35.737, or roughly a 220% increase, or about half of the spending increase by government [a comprehensive set of tables are here]. GDP per job went from about $40.000 per job in 1962, to $70.000 in 2010 – less than double. To put this into perspective government spending has therefore outpaced income growth by a factor of 2 times, and GDP per job growth by more than 3 times. In other words government is raking off and gorging itself on the increase in economic activity fuelled by a population increase from 183 million in 1962 to 320 million in 2012, and by rising productivity engendered by technology and capital.

The impact of National Socialism is most easily seen in Federal spending. In 1965 the US Federal government spent a little less than $1 Trillion in today's money. In 2012 it will spend $3.77 Trillion or a 370 % increase from 1965. The median household income has only increased 27% in real terms during the same period [study by the Heritage Foundation]. The $ 1 Trillion total federal spend in 1965, is now the annual amount spent by Federal programs on 'welfare'. Total entitlement spending including welfare, socialized pensions and health care now total $2.4 Trillion – or $300 billion more than revenues.

The 'war on poverty' has been an absurd failure. Even doubling the current level of entitlement spend would do little to alleviate poverty which in reality probably affects less than 10% of the population as the definitions of poverty keep changing and expanding. Yet it buys votes and appeals to the mindless rhetoric of 'love and compassion' and other bumper sticker sloganeering. In the real world the creation of National Socialism and the reliance upon the state eviscerates your culture, destroys your soul, and bankrupts your political-economy. It empties treasuries as well as heads.

The dependency crisis, manufactured by Socialist Mandarins, can be further highlighted with some base facts:

-In 1962, 18 % of the population [including government workers], depended on government for aid; in 2010 it was 91.2 million, or 29.5% of the population.

    -In the late 1960s, 12% of Americans paid no income taxes. By 2000 it was 34%, and in 2009 it had reached 49.5%.

-In the late 1960s, federal housing assistance was about $2 billion of 2005 dollars. Under Bush [the statist], it went to $43 billion, and in 2010 it reached $59 billion.

-The proportion of births out of wedlock in 1960 was 5.3%, but by 2009 it was up to 41%.

-Social Security needs 2.9 workers to pay taxes for each retiree receiving benefits. The current ratio is 3.3 workers per retiree, but it will reach 2.9 in 2015 and drop to 2.0 in the 2030s.

-One in 5 Americans (not including government employees) depend on government aid.

Government runs the US political-economy in its entirety. Freedom is a historical oddity, a fetish for the 'red in the tooth', orthodox Liberals and their Libertarian allies. It is a myth that the US is a free market society. Fully 44% of GDP is now controlled directly by government through the tax and spend system, itself an imposition of statist power and oftentimes arbitrary and injudicious injustice. Corruption flourishes as the State-Union complex grows in demands and in strength.

Socialists and Marxists have spent 100 years trying to turn the average citizen into a knave. The only obstruction to their claim that the individual be subsumed into the collective, are the bond and financial markets. At some point when entitlement spending, designed to buy votes and turn citizens into obedient automatons, is more than your revenues the end cannot be too far away.
