Quote of the Week: Codreanu on Democracy

Tip of my Charles I-era foppish wig to Thought & Action for this one.
I normally plonk quotes of the week in the side column, but this one is just too darn big, so here goes lifted straight from the aforementioned blog of good repute... Rumour has it this is going to be the foreword for the next BNP manifesto. Kerching!

Codreanu wrote the following with Romania in mind but it can be applied to your Nation also:

“Democracy breaks the unity of the Romanian people, dividing it into parties, stirring it up, and so, disunited, exposing it to face the united block of the Judaic power in a difficult moment of its history.

This argument alone is so grave for our existence that it would constitute sufficient reason for us to change this democracy for anything that could guarantee our unity: namely our life; for our disunity means death…
Democracy is incapable of continuity in effort. Divided into parties that govern one, two or three years, it is incapable of conceiving and accomplishing a long range plan. One party nullifies the plans and the efforts of another. What was conceived  and built by one today is demolished next by another.

In a country in need of construction, whose historical moment is that very construction, this drawback of democracy constitutes a threat. It is as if on a farm the owners would change yearly, each coming with different plans, doing away with what the predecessors did, their work only to be done away with by the next owner coming tomorrow.

Democracy makes it impossible for the statesman to do his duty. A statesman of the greatest good will becomes, in a democracy, the slave of his supporters; he either satisfies their personal appetites or they destroy his backing. The statesman lives under the tyranny and permanent threat of the electoral agent.

He is placed in the position of choosing either the renunciation of his lifetime’s labour or the satisfaction of his supporters. And then the politician satisfies their appetites; not out of his pocket, but out of the country’s pocket. He creates jobs, positions, missions, commissions, sinecures, all of them loading down the national budget which burdens more and more the ever more bowed backs of the people.

Democracy is incapable of authority. It lacks the power of sanction. A party, for fear of losing its supporters, does not apply sanctions against those who live through scandalous business deals running into the millions, through thievery or embezzlement; nor does it apply any sanctions against political adversaries lest they expose its own shady deals and incorrectitudes.

Democracy is in the service of high finance. Because of the expensive system and the competition among various groups, democracy needs a lot of money. As a natural consequence it becomes the slave of the great Jewish international finance which subjugates it through loans and subsidies.”

Although it is easy to criticise democracy; any political alternative will have to cloak itself in the mantle of democracy. The only viable political system is oligarchy but, of course, it can never announce itself as such. Thus rule by fraud, as Machiavelli pointed out, in inevitable.

Democracy of the Ancient Greeks has been usurped by the 'chosen ones' as alluded to in the above post.
