Wake-up Call

Resist the Corporate State

We have met the enemy (and yes) it’s us

Someone sent me a disturbing video the other day of Hitler and a huge crowd singing “Moving on Up!” (the Jeffersons) which was virulently racist but must have an enormous appeal considering where it came from. In view of the real danger of fascism, the mischaracterization of Obama’s policies as ‘socialism’, etc. manipulating forces are at full bore while growing Corporatism- real fascism- is unattended.

Newt Gingrich recently spoke up for the vampire elite by claiming that Obama’s feeble efforts to thwart growing concentration of wealth and the shift of power from the people to corporations is more dangerous than the Nazis or Stalin!  It’s a neat trick to ensnare people to defend Corporate power against their own interests.

But articles about Gingrich’s comments are just as flawed. In Gingrich: Obama As Threatening as Nazi Germany and Soviet Union

one comment in particular doesn’t sit well with me:

“Since America is still a country in which free speech is protected and in which state terrorism is prohibited, serious talk of totalitarianism in the context of American politics is the province of fools.”

What a blithe and naïve comment about the biggest purveyor of state terrorism in the world!  Don’t worry, be happy….while the military build-up and endless war go on and on, our rights fade away under a siege of surveillance and eavesdropping, and Banksters concentrate wealth by cannibalizing the rest of us.

Gingrich and company have a real reason to fear, as do we all. But they are being urged to enable the very forces arrayed against us. Similarly I have no confidence that fat-cat Democrats will ever get out of sell-out mode or provide any functional resistance.  We need an entirely new focus and leadership if we are not to go down a very dark road.

  1. [The manipulating forces are at full bore while growing Corporatism- real fascism- is unattended.]

    That was the topic of my last post. Democrats are trying to reign in corporate abuses while Republicans are blocking all reform using delay tactics and filibusters.

  2. Thanks, I enjoyed visiting your site. And I’m re-posting here a comment I made there:

    Until we address the major disconnect between what the parties claim to represent, and what they in fact DO- we won’t get anywhere.

    Too many programs are designed to fail, to funnel public monies to waste and abuse, and of course to benefit the ever first-in-line: corporations who parasitize the rest of us.

    Both parties bought into Globalism which destroyed our economy, Militarism which destroyed our humanity, and Greed which destroyed our ability to protest with a straight face.
