Huntington, analyzing this "democratic surge," showed that throughout the
1960s and into the early 1970s there was a dramatic increase in the percentage
of people who felt military spending was too high.
From 18% in 1960 to
52% in 1969, largely due to the Vietnam

Samuel Phillips Huntington
concluded that many problems of governance in the US stem from an "excess of
democracy," and that, "the effective operation of a democratic political system
usually requires some measure of apathy and noninvolvement on the part
of some individuals and groups."
Huntington explained that society has
always had "marginal groups" which do not participate in politics, and while
acknowledging that the existence of "marginality on the part of some groups is
inherently undemocratic," it has also "enabled democracy to function
Huntington identified "Blacks"
as one such group that had become politically active, posing a "danger of
overloading the political system with demands."

2005 Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzezinski writes
an essay for The American Interest labeled, "The Dilemma of the Last
Sovereign," in which he explains the geopolitical landscape that America
and the world find themselves in: "For most
states, sovereignty now verges on being a legal fiction."
Kazimierz Brzezinski publishes an article based on a speech he delivered to the
London-based Chatham House in their academic journal, International
Chatham House, formerly the Royal Institute of
International Relations, is the British counterpart to the US-based
Council on Foreign Relations.
His article, "Major foreign

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern
propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an
international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt
version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any
group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due
to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of
philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a
rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of
faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in
which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality
in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate
This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the
intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the
international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The
international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system,
corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex
and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered
behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on
coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a
American social mores and values have declined precipitously over
the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more
power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general
through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been
preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological
operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
