American Democracy, The End of An Era

We are living at the end of an era.

It is true that history is transparent; fluid, while we are living it, even for the most prescient people, and that it is difficult to understand the implications of our era looking to the future. It is more difficult to pinpoint the beginning of an era in real-time than the end of one.

Yet the end of an era is always more pronounced in the drastic changes it ushers, especially when people witness and are cognizant of the decay and destruction of a way of life, as is currently taking place today in America.

The End of Democracy in America 

What is at stake is the end of democracy in America and the beginning of virulent, in-your-face dictatorship.

Most people think of dictatorship as something that takes place after violent coups and the take-over of governments and institutions. This has been the predominant Marxist and Maoist models throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, respectively.

Communism in America in 2022, at least in its early stage, is following the communist rule-book of social/political upheaval and violence. Communism is gaining control of the American government, the judicial system, and other institutions through leaps and bounds. Yet, it is achieving this through subterfuge. 

Let us not be deceived by monikers like ‘progressive’, ‘social democrat,’ and alleged ‘democratic socialism’ that thrash classical liberalism. Communism cannot reveal its true identity and motives, and subsequently succeed in its aim to manipulate popular opinion. Instead, it achieves its goal through perpetual disinformation campaigns, castration of people’s perception of appearance and reality, and the inability to distinguish between good and evil. The long and bloody legacy of communism proves this.

The establishing of communism in America – make no mistake about it – is what is currently taking place with the current ruling regime. First, it must consolidate the institutions of power in America. The people responsible for communism in America believe they can evade the traditional model of communist takeover through insurrection. They believe they are impervious to democratic elections. The puppet and kabuki theater that is taking place in America should not take us by surprise.

Communist infiltration of the American administrative state and judicial system has been taking place for a very long time. Dictatorship in America has already implemented the following, even though, this is hardly an exhaustive list:

Soviet-Style Show Trials (Commissions and Arrests)

Turning American Citizens into Enemies of the State

Corruption of the Judicial System (Through Intimidation and Radicalization)

Corruption of Government Agencies and Institutions

The Creation of Division in the Citizenry

Indoctrination of Schools and Universities on a Massive Scale

Mass-Appeal, Fake, and Performative Politics (For Show Only)

Street Violence by Officially-Sanctioned Communist Hate Groups, the Brown-Shirt Dogs of Wars: (Shakespeare, Julius Caesar: “Cry Havoc and let slip the dogs of war.”)

Disinformation Campaigns on a Vast Scale

The corruption and Infiltration of Journalism (and Journalism Schools)

The Creation and Normalization of Dysfunctional Persons (This Destroys a Person’s Ability to Practice Critical Thinking and Exercise Free will)

Ideas have Consequences

Ideas matter. 

Good ideas pass the litmus test of time. Bad ideas destroy persons, decency, institutions, and culture. More importantly, corrosive ideas destroy a person’s ability to distinguish between constructive and acerbic, self-negating ideas. 

In retrospect, one thing that Americans will no longer enjoy is the optimism that up to now has defined the most productive segment of American citizenry. This is one reason why the creation of a dysfunctional society is one of the goals of communism. 

Communism’s power-grad embraces the Roman Emperor, Caligula’s, dictum: “Let them hate me, as long as they fear me.”

The brave new world that leftism has ushered in America promotes envy and angry resentment, contempt for law and order, and the poisoning of the cornerstone of American liberty and quality of life: the middle class, the bulwark of American democracy and moral integrity.

The expressed purpose of leftism in the twenty-first century is the attainment of power that is motivated by hatred, envy, and resentment that is fueled by self-loathing; the wholesale destruction of innocence, virtue, and beauty, which have hitherto been the hallmark of well-grounded persons. 

It is difficult for leftism to turn well-grounded and historically savvy persons into somnambulist cattle. For this reason, nihilism is one of the strategies that leftism utilizes to attain this end. In effect, today it is impossible to separate leftism from nihilism. 

Dictatorship cannot tolerate the cultivation of convictions about human freedom and critical thinking, both which are the backbone of responsible citizens.

Trump Can’t Save America; Only We Can Do That

Trump Can’t Save America; Only We Can Do That

Our country is very near the point of no return. Trump is not the answer because he simply cannot garner the full support of the country. The nation is evenly divided politically, but within the Republican Party, there are roughly 12% who will never vote for Trump, no matter what the cost to the nation is. One simply can’t give up 12% of their own party and win in today’s highly charged…

Gavin Newsom Takes Social Justice to a Whole New Level

Gavin Newsom Takes Social Justice to a Whole New Level

Past wrongs cannot be righted by favoring contemporary members of one faction at the expense of individuals categorized otherwise.

The final recommendation from Newsom’s committee, due May 2023, could…

The Man Who Brought Us The Bill of Rights

Although James Madison was originally opposed to George Mason’s idea of a declaration of rights, he gradually came to understand the importance of having one. Although opposed by James Monroe in the first election for the House of Representatives, Madison won, in part due to a pledge to introduce amendments to the Constitution, forming a bill of rights…

Breggins Prioritize Free Speech Above Self-Interest in $25 Million Lawsuit by Robert Malone

Breggins Prioritize Free Speech Above Self-Interest in $25 Million Lawsuit by Robert Malone

Because psychiatry as a profession has been used in many countries and during many decades as the “enforcer” of compliance and because we have the documentation and knowledge of this psychiatric abuse in greater detail than perhaps any other person and certainly any other reformer, we felt duty-bound to sound the alarm about this dangerous diagnostic trend of psychiatrically labeling groups of people as psychotic…

Putin’s War – It’s Far from Over

From a ‘Pariah State’ to Begging for Oil, Flip-Flopping Biden

From a ‘Pariah State’ to Begging for Oil, Flip-Flopping Biden

When Jamal Khashoggi was butchered by Saudi nationals, almost all American leaders from both sides of the aisle were adamant that Saudi Arabia should be punished. Biden escalated the rhetoric to the nth level by declaring the Kingdom a ‘pariah state.’ After making his moronic attack against the Kingdom, Biden had to go begging him to produce more oil to reduce the fuel cost at the American pump…

My Journey to Jesus – SGT Bush’s Mission to Demote Me

As usual, SGT Bush was giving me a hard time – ripping into every detail of my driving. He even once ordered me to go forward when doing so meant hitting the tank in front of me. I had to obey his order, or I could get in trouble, so I inched forward until my tank’s bridge gave a love tap to the bridge of the tank in front of me…

Nigerian Christians See Persecution Beyond Anything We’ve Experienced in America

The JD Rucker Political Report – Our problems seem negligible when we see what Christians must face in nations like Nigeria. While we complain because some churches are embracing homosexuality in the name of “inclusiveness,” churches in Nigeria are being burned to the ground. Christians in Nigeria are beaten, kidnapped, raped, or even killed on the way to their churches…

The Dangers of a Rogue FBI and its Domestic Terrorism Agenda

The Dangers of a Rogue FBI and its Domestic Terrorism Agenda

Like the parents at school board meetings, for example, opposing Leftism indoctrination? Olsen announced the formation of a new FBI “domestic terrorism unit.” Doesn’t that make you feel warm and cozy knowing your FBI Domestic Terrorism Team is about to sweep the country, rounding up all dissenters they deem to threaten Biden’s autocratic rule? The rest will simply be censored…

Exposed! Government Bounties Pushing COVID Shots

Whistleblower Report – The Department of Energy was offering “incentives” per employee of $1000, which the employer could keep in their coffers or decide to partially share as a bonus to the employee.
