Does the ‘End’ justify the ‘Means’? Let’s talk!

June 17, 2014

Our American foreign policy is mostly based on our goals of securing what we call ‘Democracy’ for ourselves and for the global society. Since the end of World War II, American military power has grown and expanded as a result of our efforts to create this goal (END) called Democracy. Our apparent goal is REALTIME peace, happiness, individual freedom, and prosperity for ourselves and the planetary society via our efforts as man’s most dominant Super Power. America has used the military philosophy of Might makes Right (1941 – 2014) as the MEANS for securing our foreign policy goals and dreams. Does our policy of using ‘force’ via our military (our ‘MEANS’) work to create the ‘END’ which we desire? Is this mindset (policy) of Might makes Right along with the philosophy that our END (peace, freedom, prosperity, etc.) can be achieved by our MEANS a realistic philosophy given our history and given the nature of man (human nature)?

Does America’s democracy set a logical and sound example for our enemies? What is America’s definition of the word ‘democracy? Does the United States of America (our leadership) have any universal democracy within their own sovereign Nation now? If not, then how is our behavior going to change others???

Why did our Founding Fathers choose a Republican form of rule and not pure Democracy? Did our Founding Fathers have some WISDOM which is lacking in today’s leaders?

Some say that the philosophy of ‘the end justifies the means’ derived from the political philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli. Rulers have used this philosophy throughout most of human history. Scholars often note that Machiavelli glorifies the instrumentality of statebuilding—an approach embodied by the saying that “the ends justify the means.” Violence may be necessary, says Niccolo, for the successful stabilization of power and introduction of new legal institutions. Force and military might may be used to eliminate political rivals, to coerce resistant populations, and to purge the community of other men strong enough of character to rule, who will inevitably attempt to replace the ruler. Machiavelli has become infamous for such political advice, ensuring that he would be remembered in history through the adjective, “Machiavellian.”

What kind of philosophy are our Leaders using to accomplish their goals? Do Americans understand the goals of our Rulers? Will peace, happiness, liberty, and prosperity emerge from our MEANS? Has it emerged in our own Nation? Why not?

America (the current “Machiavellian” power) now has the most intimidating military technology which our planet has ever seen. We have super aircraft carriers, realtime satellite surveillance, unmanned drones, cruise missiles, super-sonic attack aircraft, electronic-warfare helicopters, nuclear submarines, cluster bombs, atomic bombs, glide bombs, special forces (seals), and all kinds of additional sophisticated means to force an opponent (enemy) to bow to our rule and mindset (policy). Does this MEANS work to create our ENDS? Will our goal of ‘democracy’ for the planet emerge from these MEANS? Is our political and military philosophy working and will it led to our goals of individual freedom, peace, happiness, and prosperity for our planet? My personal view is that our philosophy is a mindset of ‘insanity’ (a form of mental illness). Our ‘MEANS’ WILL NOT CREATE THE END WHICH WE DESIRE!!! In reality, the MEANS (how we relate to an opponent) is the KEY ingredient to how the END emerges.

Is our LAW (Constitution) being followed now by our leaders (rulers)? If not, where does this lead?

In reality, the END is a result of the MEANS! Our National behavior today is shameful and corrupt IMO!!!

What America is now doing and saying (policy wise) in the Middle East and around our planet is shameful IMO and our MEANS (military might and brute force) will only lead to counter attacks against our MEANS in the long run. Peace, freedom, happiness, and prosperity will not occur given our current behavior as a Nation. Human nature (within our so-called enemies) will not allow our MEANS to be successful! In reality, human beings have different perspectives, worldviews, cultures, mind-sets, and desires. Changing human nature via the MEANS we now use (Might makes Right) will eventually lead to total destruction of our civilization and probably the civilization of the entire planet. Life is lived in the NOW moment! Who will bow to the satanic mindset which desires to RULE the world via a forced program of political correctness? It’s not likely to happen GIVEN MY VIEW OF HUMAN NATURE! Think! The END (peace, happiness, liberty, prosperity) is really a process which derives from a non-forceful, non-military, respectful MEANS. It’s all about HUMAN NATURE! Think about the MEANS now being used by America! Enjoy! I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com
