The Deconstruction of the Administrative State
The Deep State is only the Tip of the Iceberg
The Deep State is only a subset of the problem
Most conservatives have heard of our Deep State and most know the dangers it presents to democracy, but most probably don’t realize that it is only the tip of an entire bureaucratic iceberg. The Deep State was the first weapon the Ruling Class unleashed upon us (make no mistake, when they subvert our duly elected President, they are attacking the American people). When Hillary Clinton lost the election, she called on all Federal employees to Resist the new administration at every turn. It was an unindicted call for sedition and it emboldened many in the DOJ, State Department, and intelligence agencies to not just slow-walk, undermine, and ignore President Trump’s policies, but to actively plot and take measures against him. Indeed, there is reason to believe that our intelligence groups reached out to the intelligence agencies of our allies to cooperate in the subversion (think Five Eyes countries). This subversion is what most think of when they visualize the Deep State or Draining the Swamp – but the rot goes much deeper and our entire federal bureaucracy has morphed into a monster that is answerable to no one.
We are taught that we are ruled by elected leaders who are answerable to the people. Our federal politicians bluster with self-aggrandizement while promising to right some wrong or fill some need… yet, the elephant in the room of every Congressional cocktail party is they are all but powerless when it comes to influencing the federal bureaucracy. We’ve been taught we live in a democratic republic when, de facto, we live in an Administrative State. If a person does not fully understand how powerful and how insidious the Administrative State has become, they have no chance of comprehending American politics. Everything you have seen thrown at Donald Trump, from the original Russia, Russia, Russia! allegations to the current January 6th insurrection nonsense, is the backlash of Trump’s attempts to deconstruct the Administrative State. To get a better understanding of what it is and how powerful it is, you can review StressFreeBill’s Substack article, The Ruling Class Bureaucracy, and listen to Steve Bannon’s WARROOM podcast Deconstructing the Administrative State episode one and episode two.
This article, however, focuses on how to dismantle or deconstruct it. This is another in our series of ‘Big Ideas.’
StressFreeBill’s Newsletter is published twice a week. We are currently publishing a series of ‘Big Ideas’ that can dramatically improve our lives. We previously published how we could replace our income tax code, quickly shrink the size of our government, reclassify American corporations, and what it means to be a US Citizen. Today we will discuss how to Deconstruct the Administrative State.
Also in previous issues, we published a series describing the various factions of the new Ruling Class that is attempting to solidify total control of our country. You can revisit those issues HERE.
The Administrative State
In order to justify the measures it will take to deconstruct it, it is important to understand the groupthink of the Administrative State. It is about arrogance and power. These are unelected bureaucrats whose social status is defined by the number of people they officially supervise, and unofficially, the masses of people their regulations affect. Legislators are beholden to them and many times at their mercy. The more power they wield, the more status they have. What might seem like petty self-importance in many communities around the country is the coin of the realm in Washington D.C.
We must realize that unlike in Corporate America or any other professional community, these federal bureaucrats are largely answerable to no one. Even patriotism becomes irrelevant because regardless of what political party or system we live under (Democrat or Republican/democracy or communism) the Administrative State will always (they believe) be necessary and hold power over the lives of every individual who lives on our soil. Under a false veneer of sophistication and respectability hides a cruel pettiness and they will not hesitate to make the life of anyone who does not bow down to their authority miserable. Think what hell life would be if the employees of your local DMV had the power to bankrupt you if you didn’t happily stand in line for six hours and compliment them when you finally reached the window. The best we peon citizens can hope for is to keep our heads bowed and pass unnoticed.
Your local DMV is, of course, not this bad. But they are a relatively small office with limited powers and separated from the much larger county or state organizations. The DMV’s employees live amongst us. For the most part, we attend the same churches, shop at the same stores, and our kids attend the same schools. There is no DMV Bubble to worry about… but this is not true for much of the Federal Government.
The D.C. Bubble
Imagine if you lived in a world where literally everyone you knew said the sky was yellow. How long would it be before you started questioning your belief that the sky is blue? You might think this absurd, but multitudes of studies have shown the power of mass hypnosis, propaganda, indoctrination, and groupthink. It is a slow but powerful change in your paradigm – you might start by simply keeping quiet when others call the sky yellow just to avoid the confrontation or social stigma. Soon, you might start questioning whether you were simply taught incorrectly as a child? Before long, it has become second nature to happily go along with the crowd. Perhaps you are thinking, “No way! Not me…!” but every totalitarian regime throughout history has known they can control the masses this way.
Now, imagine if the groupthink wasn’t about the color of the sky, but what if it was a belief that the American people are stupid and the masses cannot be relied on to govern themselves?
You wouldn’t be able to help feeling superior; it would be easy to think you know what’s best for everyone else. You certainly wouldn’t respect them. You might even start thinking of them as deplorable…
If you were a bureaucrat living in Washington D.C., would you really care what anyone in Kansas City, Des Moines, Phoenix, or Dallas thinks? Even if you lived in the suburbs in Virginia or Maryland, you would be spending 80% of your waking time in the D.C. bubble – plus at least an hour commute each way listening to mainstream news and propaganda on the radio.
It is also critical to understand that the people you work with, your neighbors, and even the waitress who serves you lunch are all a part of the bubble – and their demographics do not resemble the rest of the country. According to the 2020 U.S. Government Census, the Asian, white, and Latino communities are severely underrepresented. Here are the demographic breakdowns of Washington D.C. compared to the averages across the country:
U.S. 13.6% -- D.C. 45.8% -- Black population
U.S. 18.9% -- D.C. 11.5% -- Latino population
U.S. 6.1% -- D.C. 4.5% -- Asian population
U.S. 59.3% -- D.C. 37.3% -- White population
U.S. 3.5% -- D.C. 10.7% -- LGTBQ population (according to the D.C. Dept of Health)
The Black and LGTBQ demographics are overrepresented by a factor of three when compared to the rest of the country. Race and sexual preference by themselves should mean nothing, but if we are dealing with Black and LGTBQ political activists this overrepresentation is significant – and ‘activist’ personalities are the type generally attracted to D.C.
So, when a conservative President tries to make a change, the entire D.C. bubble acts as molasses, and nothing gets accomplished. When a President like Donald Trump starts threatening the power of the bureaucratic Administrative State, they throw everything at him.
Deconstructing the Administrative State
In truth, the deconstruction has already begun and the beneficiaries of the Administrative State are in a panic. The Supreme Court of the United States along with another Federal court have recently published decisions that have the capacity to undermine the authority of the Administrative State. We will discuss these decisions, and their implications, in a future Substack blog. For today, I would like to focus on a simple and obvious way to change the groupthink, and therefore the culture, of our Administrative State… move them out of Washington D.C.
As with most of our ‘Big Ideas,’ we think the simplest solutions are the best. If power corrupts and if there is too much power centered in D.C., let’s decentralize it. These bureaucrats should live amongst the real America – around the people whose lives their decisions affect. The Bureau of Land Management should be headquartered in Montana. The FBI could be centered around Kansas City. There is no reason the I.R.S. couldn’t have its main offices in Tennessee or the F.D.A. be headquartered in Omaha. If the pandemic taught us anything it is that decentralization can work. If we incorporate this with another Big Idea, How to Quickly Shrink the Size of Our Government, we could actually save a lot of taxpayer money.
Let the President and Congress live in Washington D.C. Let our national monuments and museums attract tourists from all parts of the world… but, let the unelected bureaucrats who wield such power have to live amongst us, and face us at church, at work, and at play.
As always, our Friday editions include a joke and a recipe - have a great weekend!
