Tyflocracy: The New Art of Oppressive Governance

“Never attempt to win by force what can be won by deception.”
― Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince

I think it is time that we craft a new theory of misdirected governance, one which carries us beyond the misapplied, impotent and worn out terms ‘Nazi’ and ‘Fascist’. A new form of evil is on the block. This one is much smarter than the old forms of oppressive administration and rule. It not only wields power by means of bureaucracy and thick legislation, but understands the strategic importance of displaced risk. Unlike the Nazi’s, this type of rule doesn’t don a uniform, create an organization, publish its goals and say “Here I am, come and fight me”. Unlike Fascism, it does not seek uniformly to merge corporation and government into powerful forms of despotism. Its reach is achieved indirectly – as key dispositions of risk are imparted to those organizations and groups which are disfavored, while immunity from risk is granted to those groups which are favored. Burdens of taxation are disproportionately placed onto those groups which hold any form of independent power, apart from the government, its numerous proxies or its new constituency. No specific action of damage nor constitutional violation can be attributed legally and directly to the tyflocracy. All of its malicious impacts are clouded by the plausible or real doubt of inductive inference – the asymmetric, long-reaching cloudiness of how harm is apportioned. Or more precisely, ignored but strategically managed risk.

The first duty of a government is to promote the economy and commerce of a nation in order to foster the general welfare. In a tyflocracy, a few power holders have decided that this is an incomplete purpose of government. Instead, in tyflocracy a social cartel assumes power, in the name of virtue, and holds that general welfare is something which is rightfully and only possessed by the government. Such welfare therefore can bestowed solely through the direct and ‘just hand’ intervention which the government provides. Virtue always justifies despotism.

This socio-perception of welfare ownership and virtuous ‘just hand’ serves to elevate the importance of government such that it must quod erat demonstrandum, defend itself at all costs against other governments (war) and internal constituencies (tyflocracy) – which threaten this now crucial ‘just hand’. However, since most constitutions forbid the use of military force against a country’s own citizenry, the ‘blind eye’ tactics below must be brought into play as an alternative style of asymmetric warfare.

A tyflocracy does not simply therefore fear its own citizenry (as in the case of a constitutional republic), but has elected that the sustaining of its power is so paramount that it must declare war on its citizenry as well.

A tyflocracy is conducting a style of asymmetric risk warfare on its own citizenry – identifying them as being privileged, racist, sexist, bigoted or scientifically illiterate for not toeing their party line. A tyflocracy targets power wielding independent citizens (to include the middle class and above), selecting in favor for citizenry who are less powerful, more dependent and more influence enabling. A tyflocracy features the following elements:

Tyflocracy

/philosophy : illicit governance : expansion of power by strategic employment of risk/ : /from Greek: τυφλός (tyflós: blind eye)/ : a power wielding and expansive form of governance or administration which is willfully or maliciously blind to a suffering subject group or citizenry – often displaced in favor of groups who are not under its charge, employed as a means to increase its power. A group who strategically apportions risk, dismissing or refusing to examine its impart to a disfavored group over which they rule or have administering authority and impact – wherein a condition of negligence is indistinguishable from malevolence.

1. A tyflocracy will destroy, overtax or otherwise negatively impact a producing asset in favor of new non-producing assets, former outsiders or offshore assets which serve to increase its power.

2. A tyflocracy asymmetrically employs risk (medical, toxin, disease and disease mitigation, genetic, aging, violent demonstration, illegal immigration, financial, crime, convalescence, social, market, pension) as weapons against its own people or those under its proxy organization’s administering authority; knowing that risk requires greater effort to measure and is often neglected for study by inductive science. A tyflocracy will refuse to intervene in such risk situations, and cite this denial of action as a kind of virtue on its part.

3. Each risk imparted is justified before those which it seeks to disfavor or displace, as being based upon compassion, justice and scientific literacy. A cloud of academic ‘skepticism’ and celebrity contempt for privilege will rightly surround any counter to its agenda.

4. A tyflocracy will set up structures of non-governmental proxies, which act on its behalf and are not impeded by the public scrutiny and accountability entailed in a constitutionally chartered government.

5. A tyflocracy will employ virtue or science signalling as propaganda, passed among key detached non-liability-bearing agents (social skeptics), to justify its actions. Science will consist of a few, after the deployment of risk, suggestive inductive studies – with the majority being large – never replicated, data study-failures to confirm any disliked observation (blind eye).

6. Productivity in a tyflocracy is defined as M1 and M3 monetary units exchanged under any form, and taxed. It does not typically regard as important, the real or durable output of its average citizen. Most of this is provided in the nations financing the tyflocracy.

7. A tyflocracy will overtax its citizens in favor of social policies supporting broached immigration laws, in order to reduce power of its risk-bearing citizens and increase its own social democratic ranks or autocracy/oligarch reach.

8. A tyflocracy will burden and distract its risk-bearing citizenry with the constant specter of war, and enemies which much be countered with overwhelming might. Yet in contrast it will slowly dismantle domestic law enforcement, and alter crime statistics to lend the false impression that crime is on a downtrend. Virtue typically involves some form of denigrating law enforcement officials.

9. A Free Press does not exist in a tyflocracy, only ‘communicators’ and communications media.

10. A tyflocracy employs the specter of terror, and terror itself, to manage the attention/perceptions of it citizens through constant fear.

11. The only middle class in a tyflocracy exists with those bureaucracy ranks who administer and enforce it. Imported products and services are dumped on the market so as to hide the rate of inflation which damages all non-public-funded sectors of business.

12. A tyflocracy will identify and permissively threaten through its detached agents and communicators, its own dissenting citizens; justified through their being caste as privileged, racist, sexist, bigoted or scientifically illiterate.

13. A tyflocracy does not measure nor track unemployment; rather the flux rate of those who transition from/to assistance rolls. Under the guise of virtue, a blind eye is turned to those who truly have been abandoned and left with long term economic recession and joblessness. A significant plurality of the tyflocracy can be unemployed, and this will not be published by its statistical agencies.
