We Don’t Need a New President; We Need a New Consciousness and a New System


A new consciousness, and a new system which springs from that elevated consciousness, is what we need most now – not a new president. Time for an update!

A new consciousness, and a new system which springs from that elevated consciousness,

is what the United States needs most right now – not a new president. Here we are again in the midst of another long election cycle in the US, and what has changed? Yes, there are more “outsiders” this time, to the extent that you can call Sanders (a career politician) and Trump (a billionaire intent on always getting the best deal, in true capitalistic style, no matter what) “outsiders”. You see it every election cycle; a new candidate emerges, promising hope, change and sometimes even a revolution. But how often does it actually lead to significant, lasting and beneficial change? Can any candidate really deliver as much freedom, peace and abundance to the average person as much as an improved new system?

The hope and change rollercoaster – the ride which always seems to take you right back to where you started.

The “Hope and Change” Ride

Many get swept away by the euphoria of it. Obamamania was a classic example. Obama was Mr. Hope and Change, but as many have noted, he turned out to be Bush on steroids, or tyranny with a smiley face. Obama has continued and expanded all the wars, spearheaded a whole new type of war (remote controlled drone killings) and signed pieces of legislation like the NDAA which allows Americans to be held indefinitely without trial, in gross violation of the 6th amendment among others. Is this the kind of hope and change people thought they were getting when they voted for Obama?

Hope and change, or similar notions, are almost always seized upon by politicians vying for office, because they play off people’s dissatisfaction with the status quo. However, history shows us that generally the promised change never quite happens in a way that’s good for the people. The movement or revolution in the making tends to dissipate once the candidate takes office. It leaves us betrayed and trapped, like a donkey tricked into doing hard work, reaching forward for the carrot on a fishing line that always remains out of grasp no matter what he does.

Although Bernie Sanders is clearly of a higher moral character than Obama, what will his brand of “change” be? If he wins, will he, as Chris Hedges writes, just be the leader of another phantom movement?

There is far too much power vested in the White House, Executive Branch and office of US president.

The US President Has Too Much Power, Whoever It Is

We may get a new president, but he or she will inherit the same system of control. Meet the new boss; same as the old boss. Lord Acton famously said that “power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. It is a very rare person indeed who cannot be corrupted by the massive excess of power that is afforded an office like that of the US President. US presidents have the power to fire anyone in the entire executive branch of the government, and also to command the instant destruction of entire cities. The US has thousands of nuclear missiles; only the president can give the signal to launch them. Why are we still allowing a system to exist that gives one person such massive power over the entire world?

Men like JFK, although he had flaws like anyone, held to his principles (for which he paid his life), but he was one in a million. It is insane to continue on with a system that keeps deceiving, manipulating and enslaving us, waiting in vain for someone “good” to finally take office and reverse it all. We will run out of breath trying.

The Nazi regime was the epitome of centralization of power. Many current nations are not that different. The US Executive Branch has grown out of control to overcome many of the checks and balances originally envisioned.

Let’s Face It: Power is Way Too Centralized

The issue is clearly that there is too much power vested in too few hands. Power is far too centralized already, and the goal of the New World Order is further centralization of power in a world government. If we care about freedom, we need to be going in the opposite direction: decentralization of power. Haven’t we learned enough from history, with pages full of mass murder, genocide and war, to see the disastrous consequences of concentrating power in too few hands? Or are we going to continue to delude ourselves that decentralization is too inefficient, and that it’s better to sacrifice freedom for “more efficacious decision making”? It’s just like our health; many people would rather eat fast food and hold cell phones to their heads for hours (thus microwaving themselves) because it’s more “convenient” than eating home cooked meals and talking on landlines. Our values and priorities are so out of whack we are literally killing ourselves with our decisions.

It’s time humanity asked itself, politically: what’s more important – freedom or efficiency?

Creating a New System

Imagine if we put as much power into changing the system as changing the president. Imagine a new system where the government only had 1/6th of its current power, and things like defense, education, energy and healthcare were decentralized and not under the government umbrella. Imagine a new system like direct democracy where citizens could vote electronically on bills and initiatives, thus bypassing much of the need for elected representatives. Imagine a new system where the government had to balance its books and legally could not borrow to go into debt. Imagine a new system where only those who didn’t want the job were chosen, in order to prevent the ambitious from becoming career politicians. Imagine a new system where campaigning and rigged electronic voting machines were banned. Imagine a new system where anyone who declared war would have to personally go on the front lines to fight it!

We have the numbers and the power. We could create any new system we wanted to, only limited by our imagination and our will. Many societies in humanity’s past used a council of elders or wise men and women as their sole political vehicle. Some native American Indians gave great power to the old women or crones, who got to decide which men would be leaders, since they knew their characters as young children, when they had reared and watched over them.

Elevated Consciousness: Key to Any New System

However, before we create any possible new decentralized system, we need to address the root cause of the issue. To really be beneficial, any new system must be grounded in a higher state of consciousness. Einstein said that a problem can only be solved by moving to a higher level of thinking than that which created it. The real revolution has to be a revolution of consciousness. Any other movement or revolution that is not accompanied by this is bound to fail.

Conclusion: Imagine If We Put As Much Power into Changing the System as Changing the President

If you live in the US, I urge you to think big this election cycle. Don’t just think about which candidate you want, because after all, many are bought-and-sold NWO puppets. Think about the entire system. Think about what changes you would make if you could. Think about what system would better serve everyone. Share this with people you know, even if they aren’t open to it, because it may just plant a seed in their minds. We don’t have to constantly settle for mediocrity by choosing the lesser of two evils. We’re better than that.

At some point we created the government, and thus, so too can we dissolve it and replace it with an entirely new system if we so choose. Remember the words from the Declaration of Independence:

“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

We’ve been abused enough. It’s time for a real revolution.

you say the Nazi regime was the epitome of centralised power. Well the financiers behind Hitler (Rothschild, Warburg, Morgan and Rockefeller) are the exact same that run the world today. I would say the epitome of centralisation today is The United States and The European Union.

Makia Freeman February 22, 2016 - 9:32 am

Good point. The Nazis were completely funded by Wall St.

BJJ_Warrior808 March 6, 2016 - 9:53 pm

You hit the bullseye with the names of Rothschild, Warburg, Rockefeller, Dupont & Carnegie as the biggest investors of WWII and all other Wars of past history. What a sorry ass country we have in having these pricks and their bloodline continue to do mass destruction to humanity, no soul no heart for mankind. Revolution will call for bloodshed as it has been done from time immortal for peace and sanithy to exist. Will peace ever come? Revolution is where it’s at and I’ll point my words again – bloodshed will be needed for peace to exist.

Makia Freeman March 6, 2016 - 11:56 pm

Violence only begets more violence. The revolution will have to be peaceful to have any chance of lasting.

…and quoting the 6th amendment to spur real change rather defeats the object as it states the people can replace one government with another. Each man, woman and child is sovereign and has the capacity to take full responsibility for themselves. You create your own reality, so I would suggest the best place to start to get out of this oligarchy would be to encourage and remind small children of the meditative state. Encourage meditation in every child and the next generation would need no government.

Our Continental Constitution got it right, but the Corporate Constitution has gotten it all wrong. It seems it would be easier to start a new country than to fix a system that is upside down in debt and controlled by a few. People need to have a say in everything. Think about it. A new country only needs a hired administration, that can be fired, to operate properly. It would have very little debt if any, no poverty or homeless, no unemployment, no immigration issues, no need for a military to fight foreign wars and its population are the defenders of the freedoms and against intrusion. Just a thought!

A wonderful article; well written and very thoughtful.
The problem in the United States political system, although overshadowing in the world picture, is not unique to the US. It is within every western nation for sure and quite probably most nations on this planet.
The only disagreement I might have is that there is an implication that the President actually might have power.
It is my belief that the President has NO power, and acts solely under the direction of “special” and powerful interests. There is no free will or unique agenda of a politician. They are all, including the President, bought and paid for.
This was alluded to in your comment about many of them being NWO puppets; I suggest it is all of them.

Direct Democracy = Mob Rule. Democracy requires a modicum of Political Literacy / Sooner will a camel pass through a needle’s eye, than a Statesman be chosen in a democracy.
The Soviet Union was the epitome of centralization and that very system ultimately destroyed Western Civilization. – National Socialism based on Skills and Talents instead of Cronyism and Heritage brought prosperity to 1930’s Germany, and the people were happy.
The Judeo-Anglo/American elites were jealous, their very existence being solely based on Greed and Might Is Right.

Great article! So much of what you write is now a globally interdependent issue and I do believe a global movement needs to be started to push for the new social design. I myself seek a sweet spot between libertarian socialism and democratic anarchism, if there is such a thing.
So if you know of any groups or people who are seeking to rally around a new global social design (and complementing national designs), I sure would like to know and get involved.

Here is one group beginning to form to keep state governments in check. It’s a call to all US states:

Einstein was a plagiarist and a liar. Do not use him as an example.. to follow

Don LeBaron February 25, 2016 - 2:01 pm

A new system and a new consciousness indeed. Centralized power in consensus society will break down, I suspect quite soon. But it is going to hurt. Out of the pain a new and improved culture will emerge but we will have to stop dulling out the pain and face it head on. Then we will change. The answers are plenty available when we want them enough.

Thanks for standing. This is my first read on your lovely site.

Right on! Thank you for this article. Question: Why do we perpetuate a political system that is like a two team, contact sport – with winners & losers? The vast majority (90%) agree on what we want for ourselves, our families, neighbors, country and world. We are in the last vestiges of the “haves.” They are hanging on tight to power. However, we are the vast majority – they (and their minions) are only 10% – we are 90%. Their power is an illusion – only sustainable because we buy into it. Good news is: Right now – GOOD IS ACCELERATING at the rate of the Industrial revolution! They are more scared than we are. Give yourself credit for being aware there are problems. HAVE HOPE – WE ARE THE MAJORITY! DO JUST ONE GOOD THING TODAY! We are winning!

On the lighter side – a great video from Pat Paulsen & Smothers Brothers from 1988. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qn69wP-jD2Y

I’ve been here for over 60 years and I can assure you, we are not winning. We are, in fact, losing massively. The majority of people in this country watch television and form their opinions based on a medium of propaganda. There are over 300 million of them. Until you get rid of them, organize or educate them, we’ll continue the civilian populations losing streak for generations to come. “Have hope, we are the majority,” is meaningless. We’ve been the majority for over 6,000 years, since the beginning of civilization.

Terrell Freeman Dey September 9, 2016 - 8:57 pm

Right on!

we need a new democracy, direct government by citizens in small communities . 100.000 people that’s enough. Smaller countries , respecting differences.
Not uniformization. And once and for all . Stop exploiting. Democracy has failed . The proof is exploitation is there , blatant , while little improvements exist at snail rhythm … the fact that improvements do happen , and they are inevitable is blinding us from the fact they are insignificant considering what could be happening. WE NEED SMALLER COUNTRIES.
