We should never
be complacent that our politicians are doing things right. We should never
believe blindly that they are there to ‘serve and protect’ and are doing things
only in our best interests.
When Napoleon III rebuilt Paris, and there was no doubt that Paris needed rebuilding at the time, what
Napoleon had in mind was very different to the expectations of his populus.
He employed the
skills of the eminent German architect Baron Georges-Eugène Haussmann with the
brief to mould Paris into a city with safer streets, better housing, more sanitary,
hospitable, shopper-friendly communities and better traffic flow.
But what Napoleon
really had in mind was a Paris with streets too broad for rebels to
build barricades across them and where battalions of troops and artillery could
circulate easily if need be. He created broad avenues linked to the main
train-stations so army troops from the provinces could be drafted into the city
and be operative in a short amount of time.
In other words to control his people.
When Adolf Hitler
took control of Germany, he saw a nation suffering economic
depression, mass unemployment, social disorder, and political instability. He set
his nation to work, by using government as the primary employer, backed up by nationalism
one of the greatest expansions of industrial production and civil improvement Germany had ever seen, mostly based on debt flotation
and expansion of the military. Nazi policies toward women were strongly
encouraged,” Family values. He also oversaw one of the largest
infrastructure-improvement campaigns in German history, with the construction
of dozens of dams, autobahns, railroads, and other civil works.
before him, Hitler saw these infrastructure improvements not primarily for the
public good, but for the clear and easy movement of troops. Population control.
Hitler's first government
approached the newly elected Reichstag with the Enabling Act that would have vested the cabinet
with legislative powers for a period of four years. (If you read all of the
information on the link, you will see why and how). Though such a bill was not
unprecedented, this act was different since it allowed for deviations from the
constitution. As the bill required a two-thirds majority in order to pass, the
government needed the support of other parties.
At the end of the
day, all parties except the Social Democrats voted in favour of the bill. The Enabling
Act was dutifully renewed by the Reichstag every four years, even through World
War II, and the autonomy of German state governments was abolished.
president Paul von Hindenburg died (2 August 1934). Rather than holding new presidential
elections, Hitler's cabinet passed a law proclaiming the presidency dormant and
transferred the role and powers of the head of state to Hitler.
The rest as they
say is History.

perceived threat of unprecedented although unproven terror raining down upon
Britain, monumental amounts of Acts of Parliament rain down on Britain, most of
them removing ancient individual rights, but among them one stands out, The Legislative and
Regulatory Reform Act 2006,
which is similar to the German Enabling Act in that it vested the cabinet
with legislative powers. (if you read
all of the information in the link to the Enabling Bill, you will see why the
sinister similarities to the 7/7 London Bombing and the mass of Anti Terror laws are of
such concern to the public).
Such a bill in Britain is unprecedented, and this act is
different since it allows for deviations from the constitution, and tentatively
counters the articles in the Bill of Rights 1689.
As the bill required a majority in order to pass, the government needed the
support of other parties.
At the end of the
day, all parties voted in favour of the bill.

changes from Royal Departments of Government to Agencies, a debate over the Act
of Union could see it dissolved. Brown
is already gearing himself for an isolated reign in No.10, a Scotsman in charge
of the English, or would he also, like Hitler before him abolish the autonomy
of the state governments (Welsh Assembly, Scottish Parliament and NI Assembly)
to create a vice like grip on the Nation.
