Our elites are fascist. Not too difficult to see this, as “what’s good for America is business”, and fascists are pretty business friendly. Far friendlier than socialists or communists. Remember, and never forget, those two isms are not a danger but a propaganda tool used by the fascists to scare you into picking the lesser of evils. Not to say communists aren’t actual threats. They certainly are. Just as your parents scare you with mythical beasts ( Krumpus, the boogie man, strangers in vans ) to mold your behavior, so too does your government. Of course, with grownups, the threat is more lifelike, but that doesn’t negate the fact you are still being frightened with a mythical danger. The danger is quite real to the elites, and so we have no choice but to involuntarily embrace the same threat and live our life according to this perceived threat. Was the International Soviet a real threat? Perhaps. In that it threatened to turn docile factory workers in stakeholders to a small degree. You might actually make some sort of claim that Germany turned fascist to protect its elite from its own workers, but of course that ignores those minor points involved that confuses the whole issue, just to make a broad sweeping statement.
Most of us don’t study much history during the time period between the cowboys and the Depression right before the second world war, except to perhaps comment on the Federal Reserve Bank and Prohibition. Strange, because this was a period of extreme fascist behaviors by our elite, such as using the military to protect against Unions or even peaceful protest. The Volk were expected to remain docile in their conditions and do what was expected of them with nary a peep. Federal jackbooted thugs were forming the first Police State ( those insisting it is just now a threat read very little history, despite whatever fancy college granted titles they carry ) and freedom of the press was a sick joke. Laws were on the books allowing involuntary sterilization of undesirables ( what, you think Hilary et al came up with that term? ), and not just criminals but idiots and retards. Hitler got some of his best ideas from us. Henry Ford not only hated Jews, he had his very own surveillance state for his workers ( even spying on them after work for morality violations-sound a bit like the later Nazi’s? ).
As both we and the Germans were forced to make concessions on the quality of life for the peasants to keep the peace ( actually, as Hitler was a commoner himself, concessions could be said to have been less forced, if you were of the approved race ), taking communist policies and safety wrapping them up in domestic fascist adaptations, public propaganda shifted to a more democratic face here ( whereas in Germany an elected dictator provided more benefits than the monarchy or other leaders ever had-again, if you were amongst the desirables ). But, remember, that democracy label is just a tool by the elites to pacify the masses. If voting changed anything it would be illegal. Why do you think drugs are kept illegal? If not, the profits from them would become miniscule and the power behind them would shift from those organizations now in control ( and I don’t mean the cartels ). If voting was meant to challenge those in power it too would be illegal. Any “power” given to the masses is illusionary, only meant as a concession to consolidate or reinforce power of those in charge.
Should we define the “isms” by their real world-NOT mythical-applications? Capitalism is power by the banks. Communism is complete lack of power by banks, the state eliminating profit. Socialism is capitalism held in reign by the state. Fascism is lack of power by the banks, but profit allowed to continue as the government plans and the corporations profit by adhering to the plans. You can have a military running the economy in any type of ism, but fascism combines the benefit of government control with the innovation allowed by business profits. Is it any wonder fascism was such a powerful draw by our elite, long before the Nazi’s? Of course, you can’t draw exact parallels between American fascists and German ones. For one thing, Germany did not allow the bankers any power. To Hitler, and to MANY, many others, the Jews controlled the banks which controlled many countries, chief among these countries those that did Germany so dirty for so long. Whether this was reality or rather merely a stereotype founded by the Rothschild’s is immaterial. Bankers were to be feared, and not without reason as our century under the control of the Federal Reserve Bank has demonstrated.
American fascists were only fascist insofar as government control went, not to the extent that banks were powerless. It might be more correct to label us a mercantilist system, but even that would be problematic. Economically we were mercantilist, but politically we were fascist, but fascist as historically practiced rather than what the theory holds. We wanted the benefits that bankers provided as far as colonialism and empire building, but with the government policy being productively and safely channeled, along with the “free market” profit helping innovation and efficiency. In other words, like ALL other nations ( such as currently, China ), we were a mongrel or hybrid system as befitted our realpolitik needs. So, you might ask, what is the difference between socialist and fascist in government control? They both dictate national policy, where both direct the economy for the elites benefit. Well, again, fascists use the profit motive to better the results they seek. Socialists are far more focused on crushing profit motives. Theirs is more a system of social pacification than that of militarizing the economy. Any socialist or communist can have a big military, but a fascist gets innovation and saving by sharing some of the spoils. Think of it as a bonus system to seek out better efficiencies. And of course, by not allowing the bankers to screw up the military by seeing everything through profit and loss. The socialists allow bankers, so they mate the worst of both systems getting an inefficient economy with a weaker military. That is why most systems went fascist or communist which allowed better militaries.
The US had a strong mercantilist economy due to our central bank. Fascists might have a strong military but they don’t stay in power long because they don’t have the financing. Obviously the Soviets pulled off the trick, but theirs was a resource rich country. As was ours, but it seemed our hybrid system gained that for-profit efficiencies and, barely, prevailed because of it. HOWEVER. As our resources ran out, we started to see the weakness in the system. We had to allow the bankers AND business to profit, and as resources contracted so too did the profits. Don’t get me wrong, our system was actually innovated and useful for its time. It seemingly eliminated the weakness of any one system while gaining all the benefits. Britain ultimately failed economically because they were too mercantilist, too much captivated by the bankers. And bankers always bankrupt a country, regardless of the benefits it originally bestows. But our system too has failed along with the surplus resources.
So, we stand at a crossroads. We must reform our system. If we embrace the bankers economy, as has been done the last thirty years, they reduce us to an impotent bankrupt shrunken country without colonies. If we can escape the controls of the bankers, with their insatiable appetite for profits, and fully embrace a more fascist system, while we lose the empire also, we might retain enough military power to escape becoming either a vassal state or a failed state. So, while everyone is racing around screaming like little girls about Socialist Obammy or Mercantilist Trump, after having spent generations and most of our treasure looking for Communists under every bed, most likely our future looks more pure Fascist ( as opposed to our hybrid ). And that isn’t necessarily bad in that we stop being debt slaves, but it isn’t good in that we will be forced into a federal government centralist mold of conformity, a compliant Volk. Why, that is the furthest society from what we have now, you mutter in confusion and contempt! Yes, it is. But ask yourself how much our culture resembles the 1920’s or the 1790’s. Cultures change with the economy. We can be forced to change again, through strife and conflict.
You think our future will resemble that of Black Lives Matter Transgender Politically Correct Social Justice Warrior memes that predominate the news? Setting aside resource contraction collapses, strictly focusing on politics and culture ( should the civilization we inhabit not yet fall off the waterfall in collapse just yet ) for now, if there is another turn of events that is Kick The Can, holding on by ones fingertips by the elite, it is going to be the shrinking or even elimination of the banker elite and the flowering of a more fascist system. When resources collapse, you can’t keep our hybrid profiting both systems alive. One “twin” must be killed so the other can live. You might think we sink under the bankers shrunken military controlled colonies, as they have had the bulk of the power for a hundred years, but remember that extrapolating linearly is usually a great way to screw up a prediction so you are the laughingstock of future generations. Don’t see the future as more of what is today but what will happen realistically if we survive as an entity. I’m not saying we WILL survive. There is no guarantee if we continue with business as usual. But if we DO survive it will be because we turn away from the bankers and turn the resources away from them to the military. It will just be a Kick The Can move, and even the new more pure fascist system will die off from lack of fuel, but it is a way to extend past the bankers funeral now being planned and the caterers being hired. Tomorrow, we’ll explore how the forces arrayed with the military, the fascists, might battle and defeat the bankers shock troops, the social warriors, using historically proven techniques which also embrace resource contraction. Who said systematic collapse can’t be fun and exciting?

What must be realized is that the gov't, banks, and corporations are all parts of the "machine of evil" that strives to control others at all costs, with the gov't being the center hub in all of it.ReplyDelete
You must realize that you are living in an environment overrun with criminality from top to bottom, from the urban gorilla's at the bottom to the suited politicians and executives at the top. They don't just want your money, they require your body, mind, and spirit and they will get it if you allow them, primarily through your money or access thereof.
Living in a capitalistic society you must necessarily acquire money in order to live and those legal tenders you so ardently strive for all of your working life are the leashes that bind you to that *machine of evil*.
Your job Jim, if you choose to accept it (old 1960's Mission Impossible ref) is to do anything that you can to avoid the criminality at all levels. Your proximity to any of the 3 parts mentioned above, is the strength of the leash around your neck. Yes, it's a major pain in the ass to maneuver the obstacles that seem to be everywhere but a key element in doing so is to unclutter your lives as much as possible.
Since all of us have been heavily brainwashed since birth the obvious and most obstinate obstacle resides inside our minds - that of recognizing the truth and then acting upon it.
Since laziness is the standard human stock in trade few will embark on this journey choosing to instead sate themselves in all of the usual provided ways, until the day they die.
Too bad the de facto answer to counter laziness, the Protestant Work Ethic, is mostly just about embracing the ruling paradigm tighter.Delete
Ah but work ethic of working for payment from others is what binds you tighter to the ruling paradigm. Work for yourself - For producing your own shelter, heat, water, food, etc. Working for only enough payment to get a sufficiently good foundation to keep the working for yourself going. It is what we are going to have to do anyways as the infrastructure (physical and social) crumbles anyways.Delete
You can't really blame folks. The average self employed worked fourteen hours a day, six days a week, and earned less than minimum wage. That becoming successful was a gamble, not a guarantee. Earning more in wages was far easier. NOW, not so much. Not an excuse, an explanation.Delete
I'll be posting this tomorrow-but it's here now if anyone is reading:ReplyDelete
Note: PLEASE READ. I’m tentatively changing format. Unless you all hate the idea and object, I’m going to go back to a thousand words a day on the blog. The remaining writing efforts will go towards creating more booklets. Now, I only stay in business writing from the generosity of my core Fiercely Loyal Minions. I haven’t forgotten that. This is not an attempt to get more money out of anyone, because you are already generous to a fault. From now on, regardless of whether this format change is approved by the majority or not, my books are free under two conditions. One, you are absolutely too poor to send me any money. Or, two, you have already donated to me. Donations can be from PayPal, buying through Amazon giving me a commission, or gifting me an item. If two years ago you sent me $20, and got nothing in return, tell me the free books you want by e-mail ( I’m folding up shop on the books on CD. Nobody is ordering them, much, and the post office keeps trying to jew more postage out of me even though I’m within guidelines of under weight and under dimension. Screw those bastards ). Many of you may not want my books. No big deal. I’m offering them as a way to make available to those generous souls who support me, ALL my writing, without FURTHER compensation. This is more about the future books than the past, anyway. It is just my way of not showing ingratitude to those who love me. Remember the guidelines. I would appreciate a buck a month. If possible, a buck in my pocket instead of out of yours. Spending a buck giving me Amazon commission only nets me four cents. Buying a Kindle book, thirty cents. But I’ll take what I can get. Obviously, this is under the honor system. Thank you.
I'm glad you're going back to 1,000 word blog posts. The current length is to long for me to read in the limited time I have and at the end of the week I have 5 / 6 of those suckers to catch up on which means they don't get read.Delete
How many words have been in the recent posts?ReplyDelete
Just my humble opinion, cause I'll read whatever you write, but the recent ones have seen a litle bit long. I'm not saying thats a bad thing. I guess I'm just comparing them to the way they were before. Regardless, write, I'll read.
I was getting the idea folks wanted the shorter length. Everyone is/was cool about, but I try to please. They were usually 1800-2500Delete
Yes, please keep 'em short and to the point. I'm a Reader's Digest kind of person.ReplyDelete
Not sure why, if a little bit of Jim is wonderful, a lot is better, everyone wants short, but okay :)Delete
Thank GOD! Why do whine about getting 1000's of readers just to watch them leave in droves?ReplyDelete
Stop the the polictical whining like you think you are another Rush, or your well to do brother JAMES Rawles,
(yes we know you are both brothers)
Get back to basics, how to set up a light system, how to dig a pit so the fedearallys can toss in a few Whiskey Petes and burn you to death.
You have made it very clear that you do not read news papers or watch the TV news, so you think we that do should follow you blindly into that pit?
Get back to Basics, stop the rant's (rush, MSNBC, and unfounded I now have a home with a NOL, PS give my best to Betty)
Not sure what to make of all that, and I should just shut up, but hey, why not, I'm an idiot. How do you REALLY feel about me and my writing? I mean, you're still here after the mass exodus. Bored, or do you actually like something?Delete
I will read you every day if your word count is 1000 or 2500. It is good either way. You have s new (for me)take on the politics in the world. Keep up the good work! I guess we will both be burned by whiskey petes thrown in by the feds! C...
I could be wrong here, but I thought they were "willie petes". Not sure when the phonetic alphabet changed-I'm just going by foggy memory here. Thanks for the support. I'm just trying to satisfy the most readers, as I must coddle those few left :)Delete
Okay, looked it up on Wiki. WWI was the first use of WP, and the alphabet changed in 1957, so Willie Pete was correct at the time and never changed.Delete
Could you list your available works? Thx RSL/WIReplyDelete
