The government work on behalf of the people -- -- the people exist for the benefit of the government.
It's history a recollection of things that -- actually happened.
Or -- narrative deploys to legitimize power and the crimes that led to the acquisition about power.
Tonight on this President's Day state sanctioned history.
The presidents of the United States and you.
In the last hour we've heard that some of the presidents often billed by historians and the public as the greatest were anything but.
To be fair it's difficult to be a great president when your -- to -- an organization like the state that is rooted in deception theft and murder.
And we know from -- act and that no great man as a good man.
From the beginning.
Any claim that the American government is good because Americans are exceptional does not make any sense.
The individual virtues of human beings cannot possibly stand to the government.
But definition the government lies cheats and steals.
After all it has no resource is of its own.
Only those in appropriates from the people know one may lawfully compete with -- -- forced to pay its bills and accepted so called services there is no escaping it.
The ideas behind -- nation may be exceptional but they are not manifested by the government and of course we must never mistake the government.
For the people it claims to represent.
So why does the official history of our presidents seem like so much mythology and legend.
When viewed side by side with what really happened.
Being deliberately manipulated.
To whitewash the crimes of the past.
And manufacture the consent of the people or is whitewashing of history simply a natural reaction by -- people and our culture.
That would rather not come to terms with their not so rosy past.
It is human instinct to trivialize the dark and we came in us and to elevate the good and the honorable -- -- but indeed.
The history transmitted to you and your children in government schools.
Has white washed all the presidents but a few.
And make no mistake about it they -- government schools because they all exist at the pleasure of the state.
So that the government's version of history becomes the popular version history.
Napoleon understood this when he remarked that history is not the record of what has happened before us.
It is the record of what people think has happened before us the government understands this too.
Franklin Roosevelt manipulated the United States into World War II for years prior to a declaration of war.
The Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7 1941.
Was not -- not a surprise but was facilitated by FDR.
Abraham Lincoln was a racial supremacist -- -- -- blacks forcibly removed Africa Woodrow Wilson arrested people for speaking German and public.
If these facts were as well known as the fiction that has surrounded them.
Then the information which the government wishes us to accept uncritically.
About the present -- state of affairs would be more vigorously challenged so here is the lesson.
The government has -- apologized to the past in order to lull us into accepting its version of the present and the essence of that pathology.
Is the American presidency.
When Lincoln stated at Gettysburg that the government is of the people by the people and for the people that was government propaganda.
The government has not have the people.
And it does not share the characteristics and traits of the people themselves no less -- president than George Washington.
Told us that government has not reason it is force.
Government is a tool a powerful and dangerous tool and so it must be -- carefully and only one moral constitutional.
Necessary and proper.
Government officials are not performing a public service and they don't regard themselves as public servants they regard themselves as our masters.
Under the constitution on the law and I've said this time and time again on freedom -- they are the employees of the people and they ought to serve at our pleasure.
When we lionized our government officials be they presidents -- postal workers when we apologize and when we build temples to worship that.
We violate the nature of the service they ought to be performing Jefferson would be scandalized.
At the -- we have built for him.
Lincoln and FDR they might welcome there's.
If we want to take our government back we must begin by taking an honest account of what our government has done ostensibly in our names.
And reject the narratives it instead forced upon us.
Just set -- -- All presidents but Jefferson have argued that their first job was to keep us safe.
All presidents but Jefferson were wrong if you read the constitution.
You'll see that the president's first job as Jefferson understood it well is to keep us free.
From they are defending freedom every night it away so -- America.
