Virtuous Autocratic Ruler of Pakistan - From Whence?

Wednesday, June 27, 2018 | Last updated Thursday, June 28, 2018
Continuing the theme of the desirability of Authoritarian Rule in Pakistan that cleans the Augean stables with a clenched fist without succumbing to the temptations of power and self-interest, one might well ask how one might supply such a selfless autocratic ruler. Indeed, “supplying one is a slight problem”, as Hoodbhoy intelligently replied to me in response to my caveated support of his oped in Dawn.
Apart from serendipity or divine intervention introducing a “messiah” to the masses, I sense such a ruler must come with big guns in order to usher in the kind of autocratic rule I envision. Why? Because, before he can do anything, he has to first clean house of our fifth columnists, Trojan horses, and various and sundry useful idiots (well intentioned functionaries harnessed as patsies) and house niggers (mentally colonized likkha-parrha jahils who see virtue in the massa class) who are now institutionalized across the full gamut of public and private establishments. Their challenge cannot be effectively countered without harnessing big guns.
The moment such a courageous ruler comes to power and attempts to throw tea overboard, he will be beset with powerful enemies, primarily international enemies with local agents and assets across the spectrum of Pakistan's power elites. Keeping Pakistan a servile client state requires having fools and mercenaries perpetually in power alongside the Mighty Wurlitzer deftly managing the public mind. The patriot ruler will have to address countering these fifth columnists from the first day on the job. That takes big guns. Such big guns only exist in Pakistan military, and not with its civilian feudal lords.
History of civilizations unequivocally testify that such nationalistic rulers have arisen time and again under ripe circumstances, and their military has been their principal instrument for exercising both autocratic and political rule (often indistinguishable). Unfortunately, these have often also easily mutated into egotistical villainous rule. Napoleon and Hitler are both not too distant West's own examples of power corrupting, and absolute power corrupting absolutely. The East has plenty of our own imperial examples unnecessary to rehearse here.
To retain virtuous rule autocratically in the best interest of the public requires a special type of political and intellectual psyche in the ruler. We have unequivocally witnessed this:
  • in the multi-decade LKY rule of Singapore and in the multi-decade rule of MM in Malaysia, both leaders willfully cleaning house of corruption and instituting nationalistic development policies with an iron fist;
  • in the Islamic Revolution in Iran despite four decades of American sanctions and imposed military and economic warfare (although it is not politically correct to cite Iran for anything virtuous or what puts them in good light --- whatever one might think of theological rule, Iran's Valih-e-faqih is first and foremost, visibly nationalistic, patriotic and selfless, suppressing both fifth columnists as well as genuine public discontent with stoicism and steadfastness that the Western media plays up as domestic oppression);
  • in the progressive Chinese rule since Mao, particularly under Xi Jinping's leadership, the Communist Party of China autocratically rebuilding their nation into a first world state in the best public interest wherein their military, politics and industry remain indistinguishable to outsiders (and a successful template of autocratic central governance for the Western ruling oligarchy seeking one-world government, the non-existence of dissent and “democracy” not bothering the West or its press);
  • in Turkey's political ruler now desirous of rebuilding the successor to the Ottoman Caliphate after the hundred years restriction by the victorious allies is lifted in 2023, with the Turkish military visibly under president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's autocratic command, and standing by him even in enacting draconian policies and what is projected as domestic oppression of his detractors in the Western press.
That evil however, domestic oppression, when purveyed against fifth columnists and useful idiot assets of the hectoring hegemons, usually garners much visibility in the Western press. But when waged against genuine opposition who want something better and independent for their nation from the yolk of dictatorships and disappearances imposed upon them, often begets only silence in the same presses, unless the genuine detractors, a result of domestic discontent the first cause of which is often the hectoring hegemons themselves, is to be diabolically harnessed and sacrificed as useful idiots. In fact, we have witnessed all of these modalities of cunning warfare in recent years along “the arc of crisis” in the “global zone of percolating violence”, the latest instantiation of which being witnessed in the decimation of Syria under the pretext of aiding the “rebels”. Iran has dexterously navigated that diabolical warfare with an iron domestic fist under the stoic leadership if its valih-e-faqih, while permitting voicing genuine discontentment in officiated forums under civilized decorum.
Pakistan is now more than ripe for such a ruler to arise who can intellectually and with full compliance of all its public and private establishments, take on all facets of domestic and international warfare besieging Pakistan. But evidently, there is no hard limit to how much further the Pakistanis can ripen.
The first order business for any genuine Patrick Henry in any nation I had previously examined in an article in 2011, the relevant section of which is reproduced below.
Using the intellect is the first line of defense against those who wage wars by way of deception! While many repeatedly echo that maxim like parrots, few betray the timely recognition of that maxim when it can be most effective in defeating such warfare.
If you know who the enemy is, deeply understand its modalities of conquest, and know yourself, you can take measures to do something about it. That enemy, the first enemy, is within our own nations.
Unless the fifth columnists in every nation and among every people – those who work against their own peoples, both in and out of power, those who set up puppet regimes with military might and then tear it down with manufactured mob power, those who engineer consent among the gullible public and those who play false oppositions to head of genuine rebellion, and those who remain behind the errand boys occupying presidencies who come and go, but they go on forever behind the scenes – all of them, are juridically euthanized first in the greater interest of the huddled masses, the battle against colonization is lost even before it is begun.
As was narrated by Sun Tzu in The Art of War, the oldest and still most effective military treatise in the world which principally underlies all significant political planning in the “temples”, i.e., think-tanks, of modernity:
  • All warfare is based on deception;
  • Now the general who wins a battle makes many calculations in his temple [before] the battle is fought. The general who loses a battle makes but few calculations beforehand. Thus do many calculations lead to victory, and few calculations to defeat: how much more no calculation at all! It is by attention to this point that I can foresee who is likely to win or lose;
  • Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.
That is a lesson plan the modern hectoring hegemons – those who through many calculations, seed wars, pestilences, calamities, debt slavery, those who instigate nations to fight, those who turn brother against brother by incubating traitors, stooges, fools and useful idiots among them – have deftly followed over the past two centuries. So long as these traitors of humanity exist among us – and I don't see how the Mir Jafar/Mir Sadiq among every people can ever be fully eliminated – the battle will always go to those who remain superior in the Art of War.
Plebeians know nothing about the Art of War – and so, we are easily mobilized into the streets, sometimes for pecuniary gain, sometimes as the method of last resort to vent steam against tyranny. Such social engineering principles are well understood by those who plan these outcomes and harness the predictable mass behavior for their own purposes. Their effective counter can only come by combining shrewd political intellect with un co-opted political power which can defend against these incessant onslaughts upon the powerless and rather predictable masses of human beings.
Neither does such a political intellect, nor such a political power, visibly exist today in the entire 'arc of crisis', the 'global zone of percolating violence', both self-serving characterizations of Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski, the diabolical author as well as the covert architect of The Grand Chessboard. The reason it has been eviscerated is not merely by happenstance, or because the 'lesser peoples' just love to live under autocratic rule. But by calculated design of the hectoring hegemons themselves who have continually brought to power, aided and abetted, in many cases entirely financed, in other cases militarily and politically supported, the many vile dictatorships and superficial egotistical kingdoms (spanning the gamut from benign as in Bahrain to draconian as in Saudi Arabia) in these very nations in which they today raise the banner of “revolution” for “democracy”. Is this such a surprise that they now fully effectuate this banner? The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) even openly advertised instigating “regime change” being the new foreign policy calculus of the lone superpower for the twenty first century, violently replacing the molding stability of its own previously favored tin-pot dictatorships with the vibrant instability of “revolutionary times” – the singular catalyst of all transformations.
As already quoted above, comprehending Machiavellianly poisoned apples presented to Snow White: 'Lawmakers approved the measure, which "applauds" demonstrators demanding democratic reforms and "strongly condemns" Gaddafi's response.', is really not rocket science – unless one is a complete imbecile, or superlatively naïve. The remaining logical conclusion therefore, when one pretends to not comprehend, is that one is among the fifth columnists!
This immediately helps us identify and “bin” our first enemies rather straightforwardly into the useful categories of traitors and fools, to separate them from the huddled masses. Hang the traitors and harness the fools to mobilize them productively for our own cause – easier said than done without genuine political power and intellectual prowess to bring it about. This is evidently as true in Brzezinski's 'global zone of percolating violence' as in Brzezinski's 'sole remaining superpower' which is entirely overrun by traitors and fools together screwing their own nation. As is self-evident from my Message to the US Congress in 2008 at the time of their willing passage of the Bankster Bailout Bill, failure to lead and act propitiously, trivially identifies who works for whom. It is not entirely obvious how any self-respecting nation, peoples, and even superpower, can survive either its traitors or its fools. Which is why none do!
Which is also why nothing can be done without getting rid of the fifth columnists first.
Hence the self-evident import of the remarkable truth in the saying that is quoted in the 2500 years old manual for waging both successful wars and successful self-defense:
'If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.'
Therefore, in conclusion, if a genuine revolutionary acumen which can effectively bring to bear the above nugget of political wisdom from The Art of War is secretly undergoing some zealous birth-pangs just beneath the surface, it is high time these boldly germinated while the soil is still fertile. Just as the hectoring hegemons need “revolutionary times” to seed their own agendas, the same “revolutionary times” really become a double edged sword in the art of war.
Because, it is also only in these “revolutionary times” that the enemy can also be conceivably defeated: “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”! As history testifies, it is only in “revolutionary times” that the fifth columnists reveal themselves in order to play their assigned hand. And it is only in “revolutionary times” that the entire house can be cleansed in a genuine revolution.
Since the hectoring hegemons well understand this – empiricism indicates that they are also far better attuned to continually preempting it in ongoing game theory enactment with massive deployment of resources and newer Trojan Horses. To wage an effective war against such nemeses fundamentally require their victims engaging Mens et Manus – both mind and hand together!
