It is organization which gives birth to the domination of the elected over the electors, of the mandatories over the mandators, of the delegates over the delegators. Who says organization says oligarchy. Political Parties (Robert Michels, 1905)
Unconstrained by the rule of law and the absolute, inalienable rights of all individual human beings, democracy and the inherent expansionary laws of the bureaucracies that support democratic State functions will always, always become oligarchic systems of governance, what Michels termed the “iron law of oligarchy.” The final condition, however, will always become tyranny. America, the beneficiary of advancements in the technologies of surveillance and data storage is on the verge of becoming not only a tyranny, but a complete totalitarian police state.
