A past-summer reminder about big-government perils

I came into the world in the autocratic Soviet Union as early as before the Second World War, in a Jewish and a bona fide Soviet family. The Soviets were a unique brand of Russian Orthodox Christianity, which worshipped in reality a human God being the ruler of the country and where Jews and Christians were spiritual enemies. In the 1970s, I immigrated to America, where democracy and the true Judeo-Christian spirituality of this country made it possible to begin the search for the true meaning of this incomprehensible God above us the humans and for the forbidden in the Soviet Union Torah. I discovered that the One God, the Torah, Judaism in their intellectual interpretations are the basis for determining the purpose of our stay in our world, the basis for defining Good and Evil. I discovered the basics of Western Judeo-Christian civilization where Jews and Christians, while being religiously different, have a common spiritual Torah-based foundation for creating a better world for everybody,...

The Charlottesville riot happened the last summer. That is what was wrong in handling the Charlottesville riot and is now in handling the civil unrests in the entire country – the big government is spending myriads of dollars for best lawyers that money can buy to avoid responsibility for what it has to do and not doing. What a normal government that follows the Judeo-Christian morality of the nation have to do is to enforce the law and order by incarcerating everybody who destroys the wealth of the others in any form and shape and endangers the individual health of anybody in any form and shape as well. That is what the US Constitution and the Judeo-Christian morality of the nation prescribe. However, the big royal government created for itself its own non-Judeo-Christian and non-truly-constitutional rules.

From the news media:

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer revealed the political motivations behind the City of Charlottesville’s actions leading up to the August 12 “Unite the Right” rally in Emancipation Park:

“Understanding from our staff and other experts that the state of our law regarding these events meant that any attempt to cancel the rally would certainly have been shut down in court, I spent dozens of hours conferring with lawyers, law professors, staff, other mayors, security professionals, and other experts to develop another option. That option was to move the event to a more spacious location where there could have been substantial “green field” between the protesters and counter protesters. After reviewing all locations in the City with the City Manager, the best option was McIntire Park. In the weeks leading up to August 12, I advocated for McIntire Park, including extensive discussions with my colleagues and staff. I successfully led the drive to hire an outside law firm to advise the City Manager and Police Chief on how such a plan could be developed on the strongest legal grounds.”


Amazingly but it looks like the big government, and Charlottesville Mayor Mike Singer is a prominent member of the big government, is always searching for some “strongest legal grounds” to strengthen its kingdom while most of us who are outside of this kingdom know the two “strongest legal grounds” by heart:

•           Let everybody peacefully demonstrate and speak - be it the neo-Nazis, the neo-Communists, and anything in between, even if it is defined as the hate speech, and

•           Let law enforcement organizations (police, national guards and even military if necessary, and our judicial system) incarcerate everybody who is trying to transform a free speech demonstration into a free action violence.

The problem is that the big government that We the People allowed to be transformed into a kingdom for itself in the last half century has become a sort of independent royal entity working for itself with one goal in mind – to preserve and strengthen its own power and ability to redistribute the wealth – from us to them.  

From the news media:

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer declared in January that Charlottesville would become a “capital of resistance” to recently inaugurated President Donald Trump.


Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer proudly represents the big royal government for whom the Presidency of Donald Trump is not just a change of the White House chief resident as a normal fixture of the big royal government but an uprising against the power and wellbeing of the big government kingdom.
