What Should I Do if I Can’t Trust my Leaders?
Whenever I seriously discuss anarchy with others, I usually get one of two responses. The first is some form of, “People need to be led.” The second is, “Without authority, there’ll be chaos.” I can’t discredit either one of those concerns because they might be true.
But our leaders aren’t trustworthy, and that’s a huge problem for me. One of the major knocks on Trump was how much he lied- so much so that some news outlets made a point of keeping track of all of them. Joe Biden made Trump’s lies a central part of his campaign, and even promised on multiple occasions that he would “always tell the truth.”
But he lied before he even entered office. He promised $2000 checks, multiple times, in speeches and in writing.
He did this to convince people to vote for Reverend Warnock and Jon Ossoff. Both Warnock and Ossoff went along with the lie (see the picture above from Warnock himself). And when they won, they changed their tune.
The rest of the Democrats seem to support this idea as well.
This is a lie. I’ve read alot of tweets from people who are trying to say that he meant “$600 + $1400 = $2000” all along, but that’s not what his words say. Saying “$2000 checks” does not mean “$600 + $1400.” And it’s not just a lie told by President Biden, but by Warnock, Ossoff, and other Democrats as well.
I don’t want liars to lead me because I can’t believe what they say. Everything about Biden’s agenda, including the things I support, are now suspect because I don’t believe the words he says. I couldn’t believe Trump’s, or Obama’s, or G Dub’s. In fact, it looks like it’s not possible to become President, Senator or any other position of authority without telling bald-faced lies.
So that’s my problem: liars seem destined to lead, but I don’t want to be led by liars. I increasingly think the solution is to simply not have leaders, but I’m open to suggestions.
