Me for President of Egypt
have decided to announce my candidacy for President of Egypt at this time. As I understand it, the main qualification the people are looking for is that they
want someone who is not mubarak. I believe I am Not Mubarak more than my rivals for the position.

I have considerable historical knowledge--I read books--and some first hand
experience in respect to revolutions
by the people on behalf of freedom.
I believe I am better qualified to steer this revolution in the right
direction than the Large Egyptian Army
which has now taken charge of it.
I will build a new pyramid and put everyone to work !
had a Revolution by The People on behalf of Freedom here in America once. After which the leaders of the
Revolution--George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Patrick
Henry, et al, continued to own slaves.
Slavery persisted for another 80 years.
And then, after a Civil War which killed half a million, a kind of semi
slavery persisted for another 100 years.
they proclaim a revolution, take out
your telescope and look down that road as far as you can see. When they issue a Declaration of freedom, use your magnifying glass to
read the fine print.
for whom ? To Do what ? A news item says that Tunisia has now
recaptured 2300 of the 9000 prisoners who escaped during the recent turmoil
after the President fled the country in January. So 6700 of them are still free.
They are still at large
anyway. What are they doing with their freedom ? Were they political prisoners or common
criminals ? How many of them were in
there for singing too loud in church
? Or praying too loud in the
Freedom was a major goal of the French Revolution and the Russian
Revolution. We had a sexual revolution here at the end of the
1960s. It means that women must be free
to have abortions, men must be free to duck responsibility for any pregnancies
they cause. Homosexuals must be free to
go the bath house and spread AIDS. That
is another definition of freedom.
actual goal of the original Women's
Liberation Movement was to abolish
the family. That ideal
can be traced from Plato's Republic,
through 18th century Freemasonry, 19th century Communism, 20th century radical
feminism and it is still the agenda of international organizations which
camouflage it under the head of Freedom for Women and Careers for Women. It means
freedom for women to go to work in the factories and forget about having
French Revolution, The Revolution in Mexico, The Russian Revolution . . . did
not live up to their billing. We are
farther than ever from Liberty, Equality
and Fraternity. These revolutions
took us in the opposite direction. One
produced Napoleon, another produced Stalin. One
produced modern Mexico, which is in desperate need of a revolution--in desperate need of something.
more precise definition of revolution is
needed. And a better explanation as to
what is meant by freedom. Without economic
freedom--the chance to make a living--freedom
is a doubtful concept. As the song
says: freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose.
we rely upon the new government to open up the spigot and direct a stream of
wealth to all the people ? If not, what
is Plan B ?
Large Army = Lots of Freedom ?
basic question is: how much freedom can you have in a society which
is dominated by a Large Army ? Does
Egypt need a large army ? Why
? I would raise that question as part of
in America, the large military establishment supposedly keeps us free.
That claim needs some scrutiny, here and there also. The
More Military Force, The More Freedom is a doubtful proposition.
force the opposite of free ? A society which relies upon force can never be truly free.
The less coercion, the more
freedom is a valid proposition. The
fewer prisons and police, the smaller the army, the more room there is for
freedom to grow. Here in free America, we have more than a
million men and women in prison.
and smaller armies and smaller and smaller governments is my program. Thomas Jefferson said: That
Government is Best Which Governs Least.
Henry David Thoreau added: That Government is Best Which Governs Not At
All. Ammon Hennacy defined an anarchist as someone who does not need a cop to make him behave. He also said:
What good are laws ? Good men don't need them and bad men won't
original Christian society was a ghost-ocracy--it was ruled by the Holy
Ghost. That is, by individuals who had
the Spirit. That is what qualifies you
for self-government. Those who are fit
for Self-Government can dispense with the other kind. Everyone else needs the cop to protect him
and / or to make him behave. Then we
need a layer of bureaucrats to make the cops behave. And a layer of lawyers to make the bureaucrats
behave. You wind up with the lawyers and
the army in charge. Then you have to
trust them to make themselves behave.
They never do.
A Question of Money
then there is the question of money.
Even if a Large Army only gets the money to which it is legally
entitled, it absorbs a lot of revenue.
somehow acquired a personal fortune of billions. Maybe the demand should have been refined a
little: He should leave but he should
leave his billions behind.
how many other billionaires are there in the large army establishment which has
kept him in power all these years ?
While half of the Egyptians are mired in poverty. Is there not a basic connection between those
two things ?
Large Army produces a Large Government which fosters Large Corruption. To shrink corruption, you have to shrink the
size of the government. To shrink the
government, you have to shrink the size of the army.
The Man in the Presidential Palace
few years ago, we had a lot of trouble here.
Which was the fault of the man in the Presidential Palace. So we swapped him for another man. And now we are living happily ever
after. More or less. Actually, not much has changed. That is the problem with becoming obsessed
with the man at the top.
people get hung up on The Man in the Presidential Palace as the cause of all
our woes. So the cure is to put someone
else in there. This is the revolution ?
about by voting. All we need to do is
duck behind the curtain, push a few levers and dip one finger in the ink. A one fingered one time effort to launch a
social revolution. By replacing the
fellow in the Palace with some other fellow.
Oh yes and don't forget to re-write the Constitution. That will do it. Use the same red ink as an economy
who are serious about changing society have to
day with both hands and
both feet. They have to work at
it. Out in the open. Not just hide behind a curtain and deploy one
finger once every two years. Not just
attend some big party in the public square to which everyone is invited. Which mainly leads to Big Illusions.
is an old saying: Fool me once, Shame on You !
Fool me twice, Shame on Me !
Which applies to those places where the Man in the Presidential Palace
has been Fooling All of the People for 30 or 40 years. The question we have to ask is not what is wrong with him ? but rather what is wrong with us ?
obsession with the government leads us to make it much more important than it
is. The government does not have to be
overthrown. It can be undermined by
ignoring it. The rapid change of
government creates the illusion of progress.
New hands get hold of the public purse.
( Maybe we'll get some ! )
Faith in the People
truth is that the people--alias the
masses, the mob, the crowd--cannot be trusted.
The wisdom of the masses does
not exist. The power of the people is a big illusion. Napoleon advised the Directorate how to deal
with the Paris mob: shoot a few and the
rest will run. It worked. They did run.
Then Napoleon made himself Emperor.
subverted his own revolution by tying it to the pursuit of political power and
putting his faith in the masses. Gandhi
was raised in a Hindu-Moslem group and he had a faith in both religions,
however incompatible that might seem to others.
But he also had been converted to the radical Christianity he found in
Leo Tolstoy's The Kingdom of God is Within You.
is where he found his basic social revolution doctrine of sataygraha. Which
means: the power which is born of truth and love. That is his translation of the Holy Spirit--the Spirit of Truth and
Love and Courage which is central to New Testament Christianity. Which disappeared from Imperial Christianity,
and which is rarely found in any modern church.
Power of the Spirit has nothing in common with the Power of the People. The first is real, the second is not
real. The first is hard to see except to
those who have eyes to see it. The
second is easy to see. It is easy to see
the mob which has just taken to its heels, leaving its litter behind, after the soldiers remember that they are
courage evaporates in a minute. The
Spirit of Courage endures. But it
belongs to individuals, not to crowds.
no faith in The People. They will betray you.
Faith in the Youth
Which people should be trusted to carry out the
revolution ? How are they supposed to do it.
Is throwing rocks at the police by young men the way to get there ? More thinking, less rock throwing is my
is a wonderful thing, but it is wasted on the young. Whose enthusiasm brings them here today and
somewhere else tomorrow.
serious movement has to rely upon old people.
They are much more reliable.
Don't trust anyone under 50.
trust anyone over 50 either until they prove they are trustworthy.
Rock Throwing and Revolution
had a social revolution here in the 1960s on behalf of freedom. Which ended in the people throwing rocks at the police,
setting fire to buildings and looting the stores. Those cities have never recovered. Whole areas are still blighted. Detroit is still burned out and half
creation of a better society arrived at by destruction of the old via mindless
vandalism ? Who is going to pay for the
broken glass ? You are, in one way or
on, there was a nonviolent discipline modeled on what Gandhi did in India. And, for a while, there was some serious
progress in the direction of freedom.
But the young men found nonviolence boring. Not virile enough--by their definition of
manliness. Throwing rocks and running is
very manly. And the success of the
movement brought out an undisciplined mob.
The People. All those who were too chicken to turn out
when it was small and vulnerable. The
riots put an end to the revolution.
you encourage rock throwing by way of carrying out the revolution ? And assume that
the police will restrict themselves to tear gas and rubber bullets ? Sooner or later they remember that they have
metal bullets and the authority to use them.
then the question becomes who has the most soldiers or the best weapons. Who has the most money to buy weapons and
hire soldiers. The establishment always
has the most money. Those who have the
best weapons are not the best people.
out front proclamation of nonviolence, sincere or
insincere, was a way of disarming the police.
At least it took away their excuse for being violent themselves. Vandalism and rock throwing is counter
revolutionary. It is often done by police agents to give the
police the excuse to use violence. It is
often done by extremists who want to provoke police violence. In Chicago, in 1968, the revolutionaries would get behind nonviolent protestors, throw rocks
and bottles at the police, and disappear in the crowd. Predictably, the police would bloody the
heads of the front row.
rock throwing is revolution for sophomores on spring break. Who soon return to their privileged
position. A real revolution would
disband the police. It would produce a
society in which they are no longer needed.
Throwing rocks at them only makes a case for more police. It validates police violence against the people = the riotous mob.
A New Society
New Society has to have an independent moral and spiritual foundation. When it slides back into Dependence upon the
military and the government, it is the same old unjust society, all pretences
aside. A New Society cannot fit neatly
within the borders of the nation. That is the wrong framework. It has to be much more local and much more
international. More spiritual and moral
I mean. It does not fit within any
cannot be established by the people--by
a multitude with a superficial and transitory bond of brotherhood. Which ends when the party ends. When we speak of Brothers and Sisters we have to mean it. And live up to it. Or stop pretending. The pretence of brotherhood and the abuse of language when community is invoked undermine the effort to arrive at either
one. These so-called brothers are brothers like Cain and Abel
were brothers. They take the name in
of demanding hand outs from the government--a small share of the corruption--we
should demand peace and justice from others.
Which really means that we build a better society around those who will
make a commitment to peace and justice.
And that we put as much distance as we can between ourselves and all
those who will not make such a commitment.
Which is most of our fellow citizens.
we escape from that habit of violence which is so characteristic of The People
every where, the promise of a New Society
is only an illusion. A society which
requires a Large Army to keep the peace remains set on the old foundation,
which strictly limits its growth. It is
not going any where.
primitive Christian society was a real community of people who took care of
one another. See How They Love One Another !
the Roman Official exclaimed.
They kept a distance between themselves and the government and they kept
their distance from the rest of the population.
They had strict standards for membership. Anyone could join IF you were willing to live up to the
standards. They shared everything with
the brethren but they excluded drunks
and extortioners from their community. That word meant something. As St. Paul states, no real community is
possible with extortioners and drunks--those whose addiction pushes them to
swipe your shoes to buy a bottle.
Imperial Christianity which appeared in the 4th century under the Emperor
Constantine was a fundamental apostasy from the original Christian
society. A Christian Empire or a
Christian Nation is a contradiction.
Military Christianity and Millionaire Christianity persecuted real
Christian society and perpetuated the gross injustice of the Empire. [
See: The Church of the Empire ]
religious establishment which has no scruples against uniting with political
power and relying upon military power betrays the spiritual and moral values
which true religion must have. Which are
the foundation of a good society. We
have to live by them, not try to impose them upon others using the police and
the army. The militarism which marked
the apostate so-called Christian
Church from the time of Constantine also characterized Mohammed and his
followers. In later centuries, in places where it has been dis-established,
Mohammedanism has only halfway worked free from that original State Religion
which relied upon the army to make converts.
is a fundamental fallacy to believe that you can use military power or police
power to impose morality and authentic spirituality on society. Those who are converted at the point of a
sword will remain apostates at heart. As
Imperial Christianity illustrated over and over.

is hard to see what lessons can be learned from any of this. Or that there will be anyone left to learn
them. All those who take up the sword perish with it, Jesus said. But they never take his word for it, they
have to learn it the hard way.
obvious lesson is the foolishness of imagining that a miscellaneous mob--the people--can be trusted to carry out
a peaceful and nonviolentrevolution. So they indulge the stone throwers and shrug
off a few fellows carrying guns. And
thereby provide the justification for the violence of the authorities. If no one on your side has a gun the
authorities will supply an undercover agent with a gun to set up the
justification for the attack. But
without a nonviolent discipline you can't prove it. Without an upfront Declaration of Nonviolence, you can't even argue it.
In Orangeburg, South Carolina, in
Jackson, Mississippi, and at Kent State in Ohio, the student rebels took on the
police and the national guard with a revolver or two somewhere in the
crowd. The predictable result was a
bunch of dead students. Those who do not remember the 60s are
condemned to repeat them. In Mexico, in
October 1968, hundreds of protesting students were shot by the army. The students provided the pretext for it by
their lack of a nonviolent discipline, by playing at revolution like all the other young idiots around the globe.
lesson is that putting your faith in The
President guarantees disillusionment.
They should have elected me instead.
I would have kept my promise: if elected, I will not serve. And thereby pushed the people a little closer to the recognition that voting for a President and leaving it up to him to
fix things is going to get you no where.
Which is where they are now.
see now that my only real chance to become President of Egypt was to persuade
the Pentagon to recommend me to the Egyptian Army which it so generously
is not likely to happen and I don't see what I could do for them if it
did. Except recommend a serious study of
nonviolent direct action. I can do that
from here. There has to be an
alternative to what they have now.
