Today let's define that word, noting first that the fundamental definition of wartocracy is "the way MOMCOM governs".
Simply put, a wartocracy is a form of government where an elite are in the business of making weapons and all manner of "goods" and "services" that depend on a large military complex in order to financially survive, in order to maintain and increase the wealth of that elite.
Not only that, the vast military complex must "grow" continually to satiate the increasing greed and increasing lust of the wartocracy.
To justify such a vast military complex, the wartocracy must generate fear and wars so that the people who supply the income of the wartocracy, the taxpayers, are "willing" to keep paying the loot.
To successfully perform the part of government that generates fear, wartocracy has to "own" the media to cover up the deceit, since there is nothing that big to fear "except fear itself", which the wartocracy of MOMCOM uses to cause fear:
The Bush administration turned the U.S. military into a global propaganda machine while imposing tough restrictions on journalists seeking to give the public truthful reports about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Associated Press chief executive Tom Curley said Friday.(MOMCOM - A Mean Welfare Queen). As was pointed out yesterday, that baton has now been handed over to "the Obama Administration" of the wartocracy.
In terms of the direction of the wartocracy, nothing has changed except the bit actors in the movie or play we call the onion script.
Everything else remains static because even elections cannot solve the problem facing the American people, who are the subjects of the wartocracy.
Some of the wise men who formed our original type of government, a constitutional republic, warned us long ago; and a general who listened to those mentors saw it coming too.
It is here now, is not quite yet in full bloom, but already we are its servants now in some degree, but will become its servants through and through unless we vaccime it.
