In order to tell whether a system is broken, you first must know what a system is. A system is partially defined as: an assemblage or combination of things or parts forming a complex or unitary whole.

Everything we know and express has a system and is part of a system at the same time. All systems are unified to one another either directly or indirectly. If you consider the abundance of systems in our world it is amazing how so many seemingly disparate parts can work together to create a whole.

To demonstrate, consider an engine in your vehicle. The vehicle has smaller well defined systems that make it what it is. It has a set of foundational principles that govern it and allow the system of a vehicle to work as designed. The engine uses principles of locomotion, thermal dynamics, physics and so many more.

So what happens if you violate the foundational principles of thermal dynamics while designing your engine?

Remember that principles are required to explain a universal truth as a whole. We need principles to explain why heat is hot, or to explain why sound is heard and why light is seen. Or to explain why right is right or courage is courageous.

When we fail to adhere to or we short cut universal principle the system will either work with less reliability than it otherwise would have or it will eventually cease to exist because it breaks from the weight of its own inharmoniousness operation and lack of foundational underpinnings.

The same is true with religious, political, social and cultural systems.

When over the course of time foundational principles that bind truth to a religion, political party a Nation or even a people, are abandoned, augmented or replaced with principles that bolster incongruences then the entire system is transmuted and eventually will fail unless corrected.

Of the many types of systems one type of system is a physical system. The combustion engine is one example of this. The early combustion engines failed miserably in comparison to today’s models. Today we have learned more about the underlying principles that comprise the engines system as a whole.

We have been able to with a high degree of reliability base the design on a refined knowledge of beneficial foundational principles and thus produce an engine that can last a human life time.

In a system as a whole, once deviations from the universal truths that comprise it are introduced, either by design or ignorance, any effort to mask those failed revisions will over time expose themselves. And in the case of the engine, it typically ends in a recall to correct the incongruent sub-system.

If the failed system (the engine) within the whole, (the vehicle) is not brought back to a foundational universal principle then the system is transformed so that the underpinnings are no longer able to operate as it was intended too. There is then a greater probability of system failure or abandonment of the system soon follows. Just like the Ford Pinto that frequently exploded because the gas tank was not properly protected in the system of the car.

In any system, physical or ethereal there is an end result or a bi-product of the foundation and the principles it encompasses. The foundational principles in any system will be expressed in the end result of the system. This is what is known in a man’s system of morals and behavioral systems as character.

Regardless of the name it is given, the outcome is still the same. There is an effect produced by a system. With universal systems being the most perfect of all systems and manmade systems being the least.

While systems may appear to be stand alone or independent they are equally as dependent as other systems. They are dependent upon other outside elements that are equally comprised of smaller systems.

Using the example of the engine we can say that friction or the creation of a spark is not unique to the operation of the engine. When the spark is used in the engine it serves as a functional system of its own that further benefits the functional system of the engine as a whole. The system of creating a spark and the foundational principle of friction do not change by being part of another system like the engine.

The system of creating the spark is comprised of other systems outside of the creation of the spark itself. For instance, an electric spark is an abrupt electrical discharge that occurs when a sufficiently high electric field creates an ionized, electrically conductive channel through a normally-insulating medium, often air or other gases or gas mixtures.

This is why the universal system can exist in many functional systems. The same spark that ignites a gas stove or hot water heater or even a lighter by no means creates the same outcome as the locomotion created by the engine. Yet they all use the same principle of a spark.

The more universal and refined the system, the greater its adaptability to more complex functional systems as a component.

The successful system is dependent on the predilection that a system by nature is fundamentally balanced because foundational principles are at play. This allows the outcome of both to cohabitate.

There too is cause and effect for all systems. It is the effect of one system that is the cause of another. The effect of the spark ignites a fuel which creates motion that yields locomotion.

Universal Truth SymbolIf less than universal principle is used in the design and function of a system then unintended consequences will arise. If we look at the example of the engine again, we can say that if we use too large of a spark we risk explosion.

This unintended consequence is one that has caused the refinement of systems to strengthen the overall usefulness and reliability of the system known as an engine. You know it better as the principle of improvement.

There are more types of systems that exist other than balanced natural systems. We also have parasitic offshoot systems. A parasite by nature lives off another system for its own survival. We see these parasitic systems in political, cultural, religious and societal systems as well as physical ones.

The parasitic system will externally bind to the host system for the purpose of obtaining operational elements for itself from the host system, generally without regard to the host system. If it consumes too much of the resource from the host it risks killing the host. If it utilizes enough to benefit itself by fractionally exploiting the host, it can remain attached for a much longer period of time.

When a parasitic system is spawned from within a system and it remains attached to the same host system that spawned it we can conclude that; a portion of one or more elements within the once balanced host system will exist in the parasitic system.

The parasitic system in this case is spawned from elements that comprise a system separate and apart from the purpose of the host system. Sometimes it is a poorly engineered system and other times it is exploitation by elements from within and their inability to preserve universal principles that create a perversion. Cancer is an example. Another is political corruption and exploitation of the Party system or governance for perverted self-interest.

The common elements of the self-spawned parasitic system and the host system will find greater benefit for themself in the parasitic system than in the host. The parasite gains its self-interest by exploiting its role in the host system and thus establishes a parasitic system external to the host system producing an unintended consequence of the host system.

If not debilitating in the short term and left unchecked the parasitic system can exploit the host system for extended duration. The exploit over time will have a deleterious effect on the host

Other parasitic systems are by design just that, externally parasitic. They seek and attach to other systems as separate systems and exploit them for their own system.

In other words, a system element that is part of one system can also be a part of another system unrelated to the intended purpose of the primary system. However, if the system principles of the parasitic system are not of universal and foundational principle related to the primary and are a part of the host at the same time, the host system will falter and when left alone the parasite will eventually cause great harm or death to the host.

It would be nice if man’s systems were as certain as Universal systems. If we could tell with exact certainty that a man’s words were always truth it would be as universal as to say that fire is hot and water is wet.

Man however is not much of a system when it comes to universal truth. We have flaws in our system that allows sin and unvirtuous behavior to compromise the efficiency of the universal self. While most men exercise a great deal of self-observation and course correction of their systems because they exercise self-honesty, we are still far less reliable as an element in a physical, religious, political, societal or cultural system and often the cause of its demise more so than those based on universal principle and truth.

Here are some weaknesses in the human system:

  1. Wealth without work
  2. Pleasure without conscience
  3. Knowledge without character
  4. Business without ethics
  5. Science without humanity
  6. Religion without sacrifice
  7. Politics without principle

It is the outcome of all of the virtues of man that without balance in the system self-create imbalance and unintended consequence not only for us but others.

All of this brings me to the short yet now founded purpose of this writing.

For all that are having a hard time wondering why you are angry with the system of politics and life in America as a whole the answer is simple. The systems we have established to insure the well-being of humankind have been weakened. From Congress to the individual American, we have weakened because most have abdicated their responsibility and part in the system as a whole.

Many are not being taught about what their role in the bigger system of America is.

Others have worked in the system in order to spawn parasitic systems that hide behind American values and principles. The parasites have weakened the body politic to a point of illness and frenzied psychosis. Body-Politic

The systems we require to maintain harmony and self-preservation in our world have been parasitically hijacked and perverted. Many have come from without, but a great deal however have come from within. If it comes from within, then we are part of the system that is the problem.

The parasite from within is always the hardest to identify and correct. Without self-honesty and a willingness to reflect inward and correct the flaw, the parasite will flourish and our systems will continue to decay and crumble.

The only medicine available is for each man to exercise a high degree of self-honesty and honor his role of civic obligation to self and others. It must be done in a way that all men work towards the same. The frame work for this social contract is the Constitution of The United States of America. It is a system that for the first time in the history of man allows for each individual to be the arbiter and protector of his own fate and freedom through the exercising of individual self-sufficiency and personal responsibility towards his fellow man.

Somehow we have forgotten this part of the system and we are wondering why the system is broken.

That is not to say that all universal principles are by nature “good”. Evil has universal principle as well. Some systems that are very universally founded are very destructive. We need separate good from evil to have a more harmonious and effective system.

In either case, without universal principle as pillars to the foundation, the system will spin wildly out of control.

It has been said that there are three types of people. The first is the Sheppard. The second is the sheep and the third is the one who awakens and asks “how did we get here?”

Want to make America great again? Then stop abdicating your responsibility in the system. Stop looking for a man or something else to fix it. We have an owner’s manual for our engine. We just have to use it and demand it be used.

There is no one system that stands alone except universal truth. Live in the truth.
