A BRIEF INTRODUCTORY HISTORY ON THE NOBLES/RULING FAMILIES HOLD ON WESTERN ‘DEMOCRATIC STATES’ UNDER THE GUISE OF ‘PARLIAMENTARY DEMOCRACIES’
Only an ignorant idiot deludes oneself of ‘the reality of real democracy’. As I and we have constantly argued before, and appreciated by many, democracy is a sham concept; dangerous to put it into full practice and attractive only in it’s normative nature. In other words, it is merely a deceptive concept used to mask the old elite power (nobles) over the deluded masses (plebs).
Machiavelli once related the story on how ‘democracy’ was sophisticated-ly re-invented in it’s most modern form by the ancien regimes of France during the renaissance age after the many crises-laden internal national intra-conflicts between the powerful nobles and the equally uncontrollable powers of the mob/masses/plebs, and thus the old French king decided to ‘institute a middle way’ (to pass the buck in other words) by re-inventing parliament as an ‘illusion’ of equal power between the two ‘classes’ (the Houses of ‘commons’ and the ‘lords’, as perfectly named in British politics); plebs and nobles. This gave some compromise by ‘positive discrimination and selective vetting’ which saw, as the communists would say, the selling-out plebs (working class who grew into well-off middle classes and who attached the interests to the interests of their nobles, or ‘state’) becoming so-called ”representatives” of the common people, and during years gone by the two become non-differentiable from each other (transformed into ‘one and same’) as a result of inter-marriages and relations (as observable on the articles evidence below)!
It was only during the early 1800s that the real fear of the new rise of plebs in competition with the nobels under the name of ‘working class parties’ (socialism, anarchists and later communists) that the elite ruling families began to conceive ingenious ways to insulate themselves from these mobs by ‘creating the illusion of parliamentary democracy’; in other words, ‘parliaments’, the so-holy maiden symbol of ‘liberal democracies’, became the ultimate insulator and defence-barrier of the powerful nobles (to continue to exercise power unchecked, literary) against the populace.
The first real taste of 1848 revolutions saw the attempted crushing of ‘socialists movements’ but the attempts terribly backfire and these ‘working classes movements’ grew in popularity and in time the ruling families/clan/cartels of European ”monarchical democracies” began to ”allow” some entry and sharing of power with the ‘representatives’ (at the time these representatives were real in character as true representatives as they took their noble counterparts to task in every policies areas); Bismarck was in pains dealing with these with all his strategic genius.
So new schemes began to be hatched behind doors (with the aid of so-called ”guardians of the state/elites powers”, the security services) on how to further kill-off these plebs and what power they were holding, so came or born the enemy that was communism. During ”Cold War” age, those who managed to stay in power as ”socialists” were either blackmailed (Wilson etc), blacklisted (early Labour and Y-List), discredited (within elite-controlled media) or ”removed” by any means. But few began ”to play the game” accepting the reality and in exchange being embraced for their newly founded ”loyalties”. This is the age of New Labour of Blair etc. As no longer socialism, liberalism etc existed as all ”political parties” become absolutely similar in policies and positions; ruled by noble families in ”working class” garments (Ox-Bridge Clan).
This in short is how the western ‘democracies” ruling cartels/families have been able to maintain their hold of state power!
Anyway, let me stop here and sum up the facts, that is democracy does not exist in any form, moderate or pure!!! Western states like so-called ‘non-western authoritarian states’ are also governed and ruled by same ‘authoritarian forces and parties’ but practised with more sophistication under the guise of ”popular rule of law or common good”, paying ‘hooligans’ (as official police for ‘peace’) and courts to ‘express their existential legitimacy’.
