Is the Checks and Balances Policy Broken?

The abuse of power is something that is a massive concern at all levels of politics. Often, the only possible remedy is that of breaking down federal agencies into smaller governments.

The growing power of the federal government can offer some efficiency improvements, but it does so at the expense of oversight and control – if one agency is in charge of everything then that agency could do a lot of damage. That’s why there is so much importance put on checks and balances. J. Edgar Hoover had enormous power thanks to the information that he collected. There is little to stop that from happening again.

The Environmental Protection Agency has been known to make mistakes regarding the cost of various regulations, and has even poorly managed some of its research funds, but thanks to the Freedom of Information Act it is possible for others to determine this.

Government agencies are ordered to waive fees when a group that disseminates the information it collects for public benefit asks for information, but this does not always happen – at least not in practice. Delays and buck-passing are common ways of agencies trying to cheat the system and refuse to hand out information, and who will check up on those agencies? When power is so centralized, if an agency wants to cover something up it is possible for them to do so, and that is why checks and balances – as well intentioned as they seem to be – are so weak and broken. We need a more powerful system of control and regulation to hold our central government and the agencies that they give power to accountable at the times that it matters. Otherwise, the system will fail us over some of the biggest issues.

Secret Sociieties That Control The World


Have you ever wondered how the world operates? Do you think that things happen by chance or even the way that they are reported in the news? If you do, then you might be amazed at the power that secret societies have over how things work.

Most activities of secret societies are hidden from non-members. Outwardly, these social organizations are put together to take care of a need within the community, that may be either political, social, or religious in nature. However, because so many members hold key positions within the context of the larger social system, eventually they are able to control more aspects of the community life than most people ever expect.

The connections formed within successful secret societies make them particularly long-lived. A case in point is Yale University’s Skull and Bones Society. In the 2004 United States Presidential campaign, both candidates from the two major parties were members of this secretive group. To this date, people who are not members know none of its history or rituals.

Rituals are at the core of many of these powerful societies. In fact, the famous Illuminati has been in existence since it was first founded in the Germany of the 18th century. It is rumored that this group has been responsible for most of the major wars of the modern age and that its primary aim is to form a single world government.

Another mysterious group is the Freemasons. Their roster has included luminaries such as George Washington. Masons have long been accused of pulling the strings on a puppet-like world stage. Do they really have this power, and can they be trusted if they do?

It’s no secret that things happen behind the closed doors of the powerful. The question is whether those doors also belong to the secret societies that control the world.
