“And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, “I will give You all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore if You worship before me, it shall all be Yours.” Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.’”
– Luke 4:5-8
Once every year, the Church of Satan convenes in ceremony and devotion to themselves. This self-congratulatory spectacle demonstrates the salvation which the legion of demoniacs presents before the commoners. As the self-absorption continues, Caesar himself rises to give praise to the expansion of the regime and promises the expansion of this system. Any accomplishment of the people is assumed to be to the credit of the Temple, which has since become a den of thieves.
The Populares boo and hiss as the Optimates leader addresses the congregation, praying the commoners do believe the words articulated by their forked tongues. Every word is another empty promise. Every new proposed program forces another tribute to Caesar.
The State of the Union wasn’t always like this. To instill humility in the presidency, Thomas Jefferson addressed the State of the Union through a letter to Congress, not through some grandiose display of power and cult leadership. This of course changed with Woodr0w Wilson, who proudly took the mantle of Emperor of the World, fasces before him, and sycophants in front of him, restored the State of the Union address, and the presidency has been a position of idol worship ever since (as if Lincoln didn’t do enough damage there).
Any self-respecting human being ought to hate the entire spectacle that is the annual State of the Union address. There is no reason why a free people need a president to tell them how their life is going. Of course, the real problems will never be addressed. The federal budget will lead to $700 billion deficit. The debt is above $20 trillion. America has the largest incarcerated population in the world. Private property is violated for “the greater good.” The American Empire occupies 80 independent nations. The Federal Reserve is building up the greatest economic collapse in known history. Liberty is traded for a false sense of security. Local sovereignty is under attack. The State is destroying the institutions of the community.The list goes on and on and on.
In his speech last night, President Trump declared Capitol Hill as a living monument to the American people. This is far from true. We are not the government, and the government is not us. Rather, the government is the single greatest impediment to human civilization. It is high time that we realize that America is too good for this government. America is too good for government. Consider this our response to all State of the Union addresses.
