“Anarchy from Above” – You’re Soaking In It

Anarchy is one of those words which is often misused, and most definitely misunderstood. Most individuals, in today’s world, do not realize they are soaking in anarchy, like Madge’s clients soaking their hands in Palmolive dishwashing liquid. But I can offer no pat on the hand in comfort, as Madge could for her clients, for the anarchy we are soaking in is from above, and its intentions are not simply meant to create a compliant public eager to be ruled, but to accumulate complete and total power over individual lives, means of production, and dissemination of information, and these intentions are utterly evil.

G.K. Chesterton explained this anarchy from above quite well in his book Eugenics and Other Evils. Here are a few excerpts from Chapter III of this book, titled The Anarchy from Above.

A silent anarchy is eating out our society. I must pause upon the expression; because the true nature of anarchy is mostly misapprehended. It is not in the least necessary that anarchy should be violent; nor is it necessary that it should come from below. A government may grow anarchic as much as a people. The more sentimental sort of Tory uses the word anarchy as a mere term of abuse for rebellion; but he misses a most important intellectual distinction. Rebellion may be wrong and disastrous; but even when rebellion is wrong, it is never anarchy. When it is not self-defence, it is usurpation. It aims at setting up a new rule in place of the old rule…Anarchy, then, in the useful sense of the word, is a thing utterly distinct from any rebellion, right or wrong. It is not necessarily angry; it is not, in its first stages, at least, even necessarily painful…

Anarchy is that condition of mind or methods in which you cannot stop yourself. It is the loss of that self-control which can return to the normal. It is not anarchy because men are permitted to begin uproar, extravagance, experiment, peril. It is anarchy when people cannot end these things…

Do not Chesterton’s words ring true? The United States government has indeed grown anarchic, its growth unchecked, and there is no question that elected individuals who are supposed to be representing the interests of “We the People” are instead attempting a outright usurpation in their quest to obliterate the individual protections of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Not all elected officials say right out loud, for all to hear, that the aim of this anarchy from above Americans are soaking in, is to set up a new system of rule. But that is their aim. This new system of rule is now being referred to as The Great Reset, or other flowery terms, and if current trends continue, Americans will no longer simply be soaking in anarchy, which they are, they will be drowning in anarchy, in its most violent manifestation, and it will be loud and clear.

  • By definition anarchy is “the absence of government”, which is pretty much how most people live their lives every day. I know I do. When I am off-line I don’t think about gov’t much but rather the task or endeavor at hand. It is only when I am forced to confront some issue spawned by gov’t that I must even acknowledge that gov’t exists. Most of the time, in my world, the gov’t does not exist and everything around me exists in pleasant anarchy.

      I know exactly what you mean, Ghostsniper.
