“Long, long ago, King Henry of England told Prince Hal that the way to run a country and keep the people from being too critical of how you run it, is to busy giddy minds with foreign quarrels.”
—Dan Smoot, in The Invisible Government
One of the first steps toward establishing a civilization’s government or ruling body, with its attendant departments, is securing land which, even today, is usually executed by force and mandated by false treaty under the guise of some forced “international law.” The area is secured using a strong military presence, normally UN troops in armored vehicles, backed up by a private military force equipped to handle any incursions by foreign invaders and border raiders.
Once the force has established a secure stronghold, a form of government is established, with its accompanying rule of law that serves as an effective control over the population. Of course, all of these steps were planned well in advance, years even, and carried out swiftly and efficiently.
