When the left move to it’s furthest extreme, you have what is called Communism. When the right move to it’s furthest extreme you have what is called Fascism. In the former, the State owns the means of production or what would be referred to in the US as the “Corporation” in the latter the Corporation owns the state. Franklin D. Roosevelt warned us of this trend in 1941 when he said in a message to Congress that “The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to the point that it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in it’s essence is Fascism, ownership of the government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.” It should be noted that in either manifestation those who generate the wealth are left on the outside while those corrupt few who do very little to generate wealth rule over them with an iron fist. In Soviet era Russia there were two economies, one for the elite and another for the rest. The elite had access to goods and services that the working class could not imagine. As it is today in the Fascist USA, there are a hidden class of people who rule those who create the wealth while they vampirize their wallets through official policy as well as complex institutions like the federal reserve banking system. I will write on the Fed at a later point but suffice it to say, by controlling interest rates and the amount of currency in circulation the Fed is able to create a depression at it’s whim as they did in 1929. They are also able to steal your wealth without you even knowing it. If you have any doubt about it ask yourself this, if the economy is growing at whatever % per year then why is it harder to get by? A father of two could send his kids to college while his wife stayed at home in the 1950’s while today a similar family can barely get by with both parents working full time.
When the Soviet Union dissolved under GHW Bush it was referred to as the “collapse of the Soviet Union”. The term was essentially coined by the media-“The Collapse of the Soviet Union” as if it were a bridge or something that had simply lived out its last days and collapsed into the river that it had formally spanned. You may not know this but the ruling leaders of the Politburo (the corrupted rulers of the USSR who failed to pass the Marxist piss-test) were, as a rule, engineers. Is it not ironic that a nation run by engineers would “collapse” while one run by lawyers (IE: the USA) would be so well represented by crooks? Reagan will go down in history as the first president to fill his cabinet with convicted felons. We have official corruption on a massive scale. Institutionalized corruption within our Federal State and Local Government. We have presidents like GHW Bush whose drug running buddy Richard Armitage was negotiating heroin purchases from the golden triangle for his boss George (poppy) Bush. Or how about Bill Clinton? Under Clinton’s governorship Arkansas was a major drop zone for cocaine flown in to the US from Colombia. In fact it was often loaded into the trunks of marked police cruisers driven by uniformed police officers. If you google “bill clinton”+”cocaine” approximately 308 thousand web sites come up.
Not long ago in Barre VT there was a bombing of some parked cars in a housing unit. Barre is largely a working class city that has a long history in the granite industry. I will bet you my bank balance that this bombing was drug related. Should this crime go unsolved then I will bet you twice my bank balance that the perpetrators have connections to Vermont Law Enforcement. Where I grew up the craziest kids in the neighborhood were all the sons of cops. I find it ironic that (as a result of criminalizing behavior) victimless crimes would get full attention while crimes that leave victims behind (like the Barre bombing) largely go unsolved. Also recently in Vermont two female bodies were found, one in Burlington VT and one in a more rural area-Ripton VT (buried in a shallow grave). Rumor has it that these two women had drug debts and their dealer put out a hit on them as a result. As it turns out the dealer is allegedly the son of a retired VT State Trooper. As far as I know he is going into the clink for this one as the FBI became involved in the investigation, never the less this important story has largely been buried by the media whores who I must say are going to suffer a painful afterlife.
So here we are in a fascist criminal enterprise that is trying to export “democracy” in the Middle East…..GOOD LUCK!
Incidentally, my favorite lawyer joke:
Q, “Why do lawyers wear neckties?”
A, “To keep their foreskins from sliding up over their heads.”
