Techno-Fascism (essentially the Corporatist-Marxism union with government tyranny) and Techno-Marxism (Marxist-like ideologies promoted by digital autocrats) operate in a sort of Globalist tandem to enslave the masses to a 1984/Brave New World tyranny subservient to the goal of One-World Tekkie Government Control. This is the so-called Great Reset paradigm for governing in a New World Order.
With this beginning thoughts which by no means are expert, I want to share a Tim Brown post which in turn is a share of the thoughts of José Niño at the Mises Institute proposing “Decentralization” as the path to end this new Marxist Tyranny.

The Marxists’ Approach Has Failed – Radical Decentralization Is The Answer
Posted by Tim Brown
March 17, 2022
Decentralization is what is necessary to rid ourselves of the unconstitutional wars, the unconstitutional spending by Congress and the tyranny that we are living under due to men failing to honor God as the Creator and either take their public offices seriously or the People failing to bring justice upon those who betray us. Now, that we are seeing the utter, and predictable, failure of the Marxists over the past 170 years in this country, it’s time for some radical decentralization to take place.
José Niño has the story at The Mises Institute.
So-called liberal democracies have characterized the West for the past century and are viewed as the pinnacle of political development. So much so that Western elites are firmly convinced that this system of governance should be spread far and wide—be it indirectly (color revolutions) or directly (economic sanctions, kinetic military actions, or nation-building expeditions).
Liberal democracies are political systems in which people entrust political power to a political class that, at least on paper, is constitutionally limited when it comes to exercising political power. Further, liberal democracies are supposed to protect civil liberties and nominally respect private property rights.
What appears good to many on paper does not necessarily operate smoothly in real-time. Upon further analysis of the past century of politics in the West, one quickly realizes that the previous laissez-faire classical liberal order of the nineteenth century has become an afterthought to the progressive liberals of today. Moreover, modern liberal democracy has become little more than a flimsy façade for soft authoritarianism. The illusion of liberal democracy has been completely shattered by the way Western governments have responded to the covid-19 pandemic.
Events in Canada, a country held in high esteem by progressives worldwide, have been revelatory in that regard. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s invocation of the Emergencies Act to quell the Freedom Convoy protests showed the world that liberal democracy is not so “exceptional” and is just as susceptible to descending into petty despotism as any other political system.
Protests and blockades against its stringent covid-19 restrictions were enough for the Trudeau government to unleash the proverbial hounds against people who dared to protest government overreach.
The Trudeau regime has killed two birds with one stone by using its emergency powers to attack both peaceful protestors and the budding cryptocurrency sector—one of the few avenues of human activity that has yet to be fully enveloped by the state. Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland announced in the middle of February that the crypto wallets of Freedom Convoy protesters and those funding the protests were frozen. While Trudeau seemingly revoked his government’s emergency powers, the damage has already been done.
The Canadian government’s actions—not its boasting rhetoric about human rights—have laid bare the hollow nature of liberal democracy in the covid-19 era. When pressed against the wall, liberal democracies like Canada eventually cracked and revealed to the world their true tyrannical colors.
What the West is witnessing right now is the culmination of over a century of ceaseless government growth. Government overreach has accumulated to such a degree that whatever illusion Westerners may have been under about the freedoms they supposedly enjoy has dissipated.
Westerners will need to pause and exercise some introspection. Pace the great Ludwig von Mises, democracy isn’t the apotheosis of political systems. In Nation, State, and Economy, Mises argued:
If one wants to make peace, then one must get rid of the possibility of conflicts between peoples. Only the ideas of liberalism and democracy have the power to do that.
In fairness to Mises, he was a man of his time. He pragmatically viewed democracy as the lesser of two evils on a war-torn European continent that was dotted with monarchies and nascent nationalist movements that were embracing collectivist ideologies. However, democracy has outlived its usefulness and cannot contain the torrential wave of statism proliferating across the West.
Going back to romanticized eras of the past is not an option. We must move forward and blaze a new path to a more just society based on private property and freedom of association. The jurist Carl Schmitt once said that “a historical truth is only true once.”
Fostering an embrace of laissez-faire liberalism is always valuable because it places some limits on what a regime can get away with. But history suggests it is not enough to rely only on ideological bulwarks.
It is perhaps time to think bigger, and we can do so by drawing from one of the more underappreciated aspects of Mises’s life’s work. Namely, his focus on radical decentralization. This can come in the form of nullification, soft secessionism, localism, and other forms of breaking down centralized power. The challenge before us is to cobble together a decentralized alternative that builds on the positive aspects of the previous liberal order while rectifying its flaws to forge a new architecture of ordered liberty and voluntary association.
Thinking beyond traditional modes of political organization will be the key challenge as Westerners navigate through the uncharted waters of woke despotism. Radical decentralization will be the lighthouse for Western countries that have lost their way. Whether these countries correct course remains to be seen.
Has Humanity Won? Almost…Here’s The Next Step
If you cannot promote a society in which there are no masters and no slaves to any degree, you cannot ever be free. Step one is to free your mind. Until people awake from their slumber they’ve been lulled into by the belief that voting for a new master makes them free, none of us will ever escape our enslavement.
He’s exactly right and we must repent, or change our minds, and do what is right if we want to escape the enslavement the cruel one and enemy of our souls plans for us.

Here’s some of what the Marxists are doing. https://www.indeed.com/q-Community-Organizer-jobs.html?vjk=0db276b675149470 Are your ideas going to do anything to stop them? Just politely asking.
“Community Organizing” is Marxist code for brainwashing the gullible. Effective “Radical Decentralization” should confront the local brainwashers to expose Collectivist Marxism with Independent thinking leading to more enterprise, more Liberty and LESS government.
Have you read the Libertarian Party platform? Libertarians are totally in line with the Left on social issues. Open borders, abortion for all, legalization of all drugs, etc. The Mises Institute is about Anarcho-capitalism and not for anything a Christian would want. Our government was set up for local people to have a say in it. It is decentralized. The Left has been getting rid of personal involvement in politics, first by not teaching good citizenship in schools. The Left has taken over the institutions, right in front of Libertarians. With few exceptions, Libertarians don’t do anything about Leftism.
Reblogged this on boudica.us.
Ahh.. Rebecca I now understand your issue. You absolutely correct on the Left bent of the Libertarian Party on social issues. In full disclosure, in my youth from evolving from a Dem supporter to a Conservative, Libertarianism was my stepping stone. After becoming a Born Again Christian and understanding the Libertarian Social Leftism, I parted ways. BUT, although Libertarians are fond of quoting the Mises Institute and Austrian-inspired Free Enterprise Economics does not mean the Mises Institute supports Social Left of Libertarianism. I suspect there are both Libertarian and non-Libertarians at the Mises Institute. The primary focus is Free Enterprise Economics. The Acton Institute (another often quoted by Libertarians organization) asserts Ludwig von Mises believed morality was essential for Free Enterprise to function ethically ( https://www.acton.org/pub/religion-liberty/volume-7-number-6/misesian-economics-and-bible). Now these Free Enterprise thinkers may have some theological issues to disagree with, but Biblical Morality was not one of them. AND YET as you say, Libertarianism itself as a whole has definitely jumped the Social-Left rabbit hole as a matter of individual choice rather than obeying the Creator. I’m afraid that Libertarian-choice issue probably will lead to the wide path leading to Hell via the wrong choice.
There’s quite a bit of info on the net regarding Radical Decentralization, and the Libertarians do use Mises to try to make it sound OK, when they know full well he wouldn’t have been for it. And, the Acton Institute is a Roman Catholic/Libertarian group doing revisionist history and making the claim that Libertarians and Catholics actually invented Capitalism, not Protestants. Also, the Acton Inst., isn’t the only Libertarian group now doing revisionist history… I’m happy to hear you don’t actually support all of their ideas.
