Scattered throughout the length and breadth of the United States are those who have experienced first-hand the tyranny of despotic rulers and repressive one-party oligarchies. Today, many of us that came here as refugees are watching with bemusement and a mild sense of trepidation as the oblivious, self-absorbed, puerile wannabe autocrats in the Ruling Class are hell-bent on imposing their dysfunctional version of one-party dictatorial rule on a nation they apparently neither know nor understand.
The vast bulk of this cadre of self-styled intellectuals and societal elites are little different from those in various European nations. They are not only beset with a severe case of narcissism but are among the most gullible and easily manipulated due to their overweening need to feel superior to those they perceive to be lesser fellow citizens. This sense of superiority eventually manifests itself in an immutable belief that they are preordained to rule the unwashed masses. Thus, they easily fall sway to a charismatic leader or are willing to accept any inane philosophical theory or deviancy that helps embed their status among the nation’s elites.
George Orwell in a letter written in 1944 (5 years prior to the publication of his seminal work 1984) wrote the following:
There is this fact that the intellectuals are more totalitarian in outlook than the common people. On the whole the English intelligentsia have opposed Hitler, but at the price of accepting Stalin. Most of them are perfectly ready for dictatorial methods, secret police, systemic falsification of history etc. as long as they feel it is on ‘our’ side.
The current iteration of the American Ruling Class has not only embraced dictatorial methods as a means to their ends but are astonishingly ill-educated thanks to decades of indoctrination rather than education at America’s universities. This ill-education encompasses not only an inability by the vast majority to reason and generate an original thought but also a breathtaking ignorance of the history of mankind, and a profound inability to comprehend the American experience and citizenry.
The history of the 20th Century is replete with examples of nations that have succumbed to one-party tyrannical rule. In all cases these countries share at least one of two common threads. First, due to global or regional wars, they suffered overwhelming destruction to their societies and economies, opening the door for those espousing Marxism/socialism as a cure for the nation’s ills. Second, none of these nations had a centuries long history of freedom and self-determination.
The most notable examples of totalitarian one-party rule were Germany and Italy, and currently Russia and China. The devastating physical and financial destruction of World War I precipitated chaos throughout these European nations. World War II opened the door in China for Mao Zedong to solidify his party’s supremacy as he had been unable to do so in previous internal conflicts. These hostilities were the catalyst for the rise to power of one-party rule in all these nations under either the banner of Fascism, Nazism or Communism. Further, none of these nations (and others with dysfunctional impoverished societies that succumbed to one-party rule, such as Cuba) had any meaningful history of a being a successful multi-cultural society steeped in freedom and unfettered capitalism.
The United States is not reeling from the aftermath of a devastating war on its soil. Its citizenry is not suffering the effects of a massive depression. This nation for 245 years has promoted and reveled in individual freedom and free enterprise. As a result, its economy, particularly over the past century is the most successful and dominant in world history. America is the only country in the annals of mankind that has sanctioned the unrestricted right of the populace to own and bear arms as a bulwark against an oppressive central government. This is not now, nor has it ever been, a nation ripe for the ascension of one-party totalitarian rule.
Thus, the current infatuation with themselves by this nation’s elites is about to run headfirst into a brick wall. Their attempt to transform the United States into their hybrid version of a one-party oligarchy under the banner of a new hybrid of socialism is doomed to failure.
Their psychotic obsession to rid themselves of the threat that Donald Trump posed to their hegemonic plans has prompted unforced and fatal errors. The blatant hijacking of the 2020 election using the Chinese Coronavirus as cover. Unabashedly, and with malice, defaming half of the voting citizenry as irredeemable domestic terrorists that must be vanquished. Accusing nearly 70% of the population of being racists solely because of their skin color. Unable to control themselves and within hours of having assumed control of Congress and the White House, plunging headfirst into uncharted political overreach through an avalanche of Executive Orders.
These actions reveal a mindless faction in the process of emulating the final scenes in The Wizard of Oz drawing back the green curtain exposing their true colors, character and incompetence.
The vast majority of the denizens of the Ruling Class are not the best and brightest. They are mere hangers-on who have an insatiable need to be considered part of the in-crowd. While many have framed elite university diplomas hanging on their walls, they are nearly devoid of what used to be generically known as common sense. Their most prominent personal characteristics are self-aggrandizement and cupidity. Their espousal of Marxism/socialism is self-serving as this philosophy empowers an omnipotent ruling class or oligarchy. Yet, they could not survive a week in those repressive societies they glorify and wish to foist on the rest of the country. When confronted with their failures they invariably blame others and are, for the most part, moral and physical cowards. They will not stand up to an organized and determined citizenry.
Therefore, Americans must now mobilize to not just win skirmishes but to permanently dispatch these fatuous megalomaniacs who have declared their determination to transform America and create a one-party oligarchy. The time has come for unfettered and peaceful civil disobedience as espoused by Gandhi and Martin Luther King. Marches and demonstrations must become commonplace. Additionally, the vast majority of Americans need to stop watching and reading the mainstream and social media and instead search out and support alternative news sources.
Pelosi’s HR1 is nothing but a blatant attempt at totalitarian rule. Only Democrats seek such control.
The Attempt to Install a One-Party Oligarchy has already failed. That’s what Trump’s failed attempt to overturn the 2020 election was about.
@Greg: Bullshit. The Democrats are installing a single party totalitarian police state.
Nazis outlawed opposition, too.
Donald Trump has turned the GOP against itself. He continues to throw gasoline on the fire. Don’t blame Democrats for what Trump has done.
TODAY’S BELIEVABLE BUT MAYBE NOT YET REAL HEADLINES:
Biden To Add 87 Supreme Court Justices In Memory Of Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
Liberals Shocked To Find Out Their Lives Still Suck After Trump Leaves Office.
Biden Unveils Skin Color Chart To Determine Who Gets Federal Aid.
Trump has outlined and made obvious that most Republicans are as craven and crooked as most Democrats. They are one party most ways, not two, and most of the fights are just raw meat for the masses. That’s why both political parties hate him.
They investigated him for 4 years and found nothing but fake dossiers and lies. That collapsed their first impeachment try so they tried to impeach him for things that aren’t crimes. Even though most Republicans wanted to go along, they couldn’t quite cross the complete lie bridge the Democrats came up with.
@Greg: Trump has merely flushed out the pseudo-Republicans. They are now the Democrats and the Democrats are socialists.
There. Fixed it right up.
Oh, a federal judge has stopped the idiot Biden’s stupid EO to prevent deportation of any illegal immigrants for any reason. At least there is still SOME sanity Democrats haven’t stomped out remaining.
This whole thing is going to backfire on them all its going to cost them big in the next election the eletists are just liable to see their worst Nightmares come true
Don’t you and dictator Biden take credit for what he did, either.
The Trump-vaccine success is historical, and has ZERO to do with Biden and any media spin.
The culmination of your cult leader’s political career: Trump’s American Carnage (full documentary) | FRONTLINE
It’s for a mature, reality-oriented audience, so you probably shouldn’t watch it.
@Greg: Trump has done more for this country than any President since Reagan. Democrats simply hate it when the American people get more than THEY do. They are willing to destroy the country to grasp power and that is what they are doing.
Biden is demonstrating in great fashion how much easier it is to tear down an economy than to build one.
What sort of economy has Trump actually sold to his political base?
One including a tax system where, over the past 40 years, $50 trillion dollars have gravitated from America’s bottom 90 percent to the top 1 percent:
The Top 1% of Americans Have Taken $50 Trillion From the Bottom 90%—And That’s Made the U.S. Less Secure
Adding $2.5 trillion more to the holdings of the top 1 percent over Trump’s 4 years in office was accomplished by way of tax cuts that rapidly expanded the deficit and national debt during a stimulus-driven economic boom. There were warnings throughout those years that this sort of boom always leads to a bust. That’s what Biden has inherited—with a viral pandemic that has killed over 425 thousand Americans in less that 12 months thrown in for good measure.
@Greg: How much of this transfer was in the last 10 months when all the businesses were shut down and Amazon was nearly the only shopping source, walmarts that drove out the mom and pop shops were the only choice? BLM and Antifa burned out black owned businesses?
Seems they are now changing critera for covid too.
PBS is aimed at morons like you who look no further than what the booby tooby tells them.
South Dakota is doing great, never shut down any businesses.
Cali and NY looking to be bailed out for their moronic behavior.
How much was cali defrauded in unemployment, happens when you shut off fraud filters.
comrade greggy-poo: the human brain is a sponge not a sieve. reading your posts and rational can only lead an educated individual to the fact that your brain is a very porous sieve. you must have crapped your pants when the pediplile was named the illegal president.
In a social media environment flooded with lies and disinformation, anyone who wants to understand what’s true needs to be able to sift out the b.s.
Addressing me in an infantile manner doesn’t make me the infant any more than Trump’s moronic comments made those they were directed at the morons.
@Greg: Awww did meanie Mos hurt you widdle fweelins? Face it Oz has nothing for you.
Indeed. Now the beneficiaries of that “wealth transfer” you pretend to care about are working together to make sure nothing BUT lies and disinformation remains on social media. Why is it always the left that fears freedom of speech?
No, they were self-made morons.
The one where black people are making money, instead of waiting for crusty old white guys like dictator Biden to “help” them while making racist comments.
Trump was good for blacks.
Biden was/is not.
Yup. The bread and butter of the left. Ask yourself: if the social media “environment” is flooded with lies and disinformation…and those major social media companies gave Biden over a billion dollars in campaign funds, who exactly are the lies and disinformation helping?
The Left are brokers of lies and disinformation.
The non-Left is not.
@Nathan Blue: At least Biden has a plan for when blacks are kicked out of their jobs and dumped back into poverty by his job-killing campaign to destroy our economy. He’ll throw them in jail when they turn to crime. “He’ll put y’all back in chains.”
How stupid do you have to be to have brought this upon our country?
