Transparency, Laws, & Our Government

Though this article, Against Transparency, published by The New Republic is several years old, I personally feel it addresses an issue that still remains in our government: lack of transparency of any degree.

You can read the entire article here:

The New Republic: Against Transparency

Written for Nova’s Daily Random Word: transparency


  1. We want cops to wear body cams, yet our elected representatives are not accounted for?

    These people are paid on average $174,000 annual.

    Why do we need to give them the benefit of the doubt when they refuse to give us the same?

    These people are not smarter or more valuable than we are.

    You really hit on something there Nova. You’ve inspired me!

    1. ” That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
      It’s written in The Declaration of Independence❤️

      1. We’re watching the dog and pony show too well right now and unfortunately, being taken care of too well by the big G to do those things though. We’ve come to live comfortably in the toxic environment that we should have shook off decades ago.

        1. I agree. But I don’t think America wants revolution. We desire to elect people to fight for us, hence adding to the problem further.

  2. The big G is a joke. In it’s entirety. They’re using us to get their way while too many of us believe they actually care about us.

    1. This is true, on all accounts. Read into the relationships of GOP and pharmaceutical companies! Then read into whole life insurance and how it’s grows in wealth. Bankers, bigger companies who sponsor celebrities…
      It’s all flabbergasting but it’s not!!

        1. What’s most frustrating to me, is this:
          #1. The extent of what the government hides is absurd. For example, ET sightings. What is their benefit to keep this from us? Americans then don’t outbreak in panic? Ok, let’s talk about 9/11.
          Example #2. US history in general… We’re taught fucked up twisted versions of this country’s history, and I really don’t understand the reasoning. When Columbus showed up, the Natives who had a significant population before Germany brought over diseases, were reduced. This , we’re taught, as new land.. with a few Native Americans, who we pushed off onto reservations and withheld that which we promised them.
          That version of this country isn’t in texts books but it’s the truth.

        2. It’s because most everything is being used against us to infuriate us – divide and conquer. We’ve been confused to the point we wouldn’t recognize the truth if it were directly in front of us. That’s exactly what they want. They want us dependent and dumb.

          We’re looking at what we believe to be a majestic eagle soaring above us. That’s a buzzard circling overhead waiting for us to weaken to the point it can easily swoop in and devour us.
