Note (06MAR2023): Financial Suicide? Unlikely.
“Think a thousand times before taking a decision but, after taking the decision, never turn back even if you get a thousand difficulties!” -Adolf Hitler (1889-1945)
Following Hitler’s advice, the self-styled, so-called elitists have made their decision and are Hell-bent not to turn back. Hitler’s advice is consonant with their decision, which is to inflict Fascism upon Western civilization with them as the rulers. Each country may have its own brand, but all will have Fascism coördinated by international agencies; e.g., medical delivery will be coördinated by the World Health Organization.
Their decision is not based upon Marx and his Communism but upon Mussolini and his Fascism. Would Bill Gates surrender Microsoft to Joe Biden and the State were these United States to fall under Communism? Not likely. Under Communism, Gates would end up either dead or as nothing. Under Fascism, he would rule.
Know your enemy. Understand his language.
Note (27FEB2023): From the late 1940’s until1991, the preëminent enemy of these United States ideologically was Communism and politically was the erstwhile Soviet Union under the direction of Russia. Today the preëminent enemy ideologically is Fascism and politically is a cabal of self-appointed elites directing major, international companies and international agencies. To combat these evil entities effectively, it is important to know your enemy — to know the difference between Communism and Fascism as described hereinbelow. Failure to do so will be fatal for freedom.
The most recent threat comes from the World Health Organization, one of those agencies. It comes in the form of a proposed pandemic treaty. With the current support of all member-states, including these United States, the treaty would bestow upon WHO the power to declare a pandemic by whatever criteria it concocts then to impose its response internationally by whatever means it concocts even in violation of the Nuremberg Protocols.
Constitutionally in these United States, medical delivery is to be governed by each of the several States. That an international treaty supercedes that power of the States already has been confirmed by the U. S. Supreme Court [Missouri v. Holland (1920)]. Furthermore, the Court affirmed that even a presidential order supercedes that power [United States v. Belmont (1933)].
An extreme danger now exists of the dark shroud of Fascism covering these United States and subjecting all American citizens to the terror of total tyranny. It already has begun. What to do?
“There is a time for all things, a time to preach and a time to pray, but those times have passed away. There is a time to fight, and that time has now come.” -Peter Muhlenberg (1746-1807)
Fight? How? Rebellion?
“I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.” -Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
“But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.” -George Orwell (1903-1950)
In these United States and elsewhere in the Occidental world, as The Left has been assuming totalitarian power, it has employed language as one of its most potent weapons to promote confusion and mayhem. Such a context allows it to justify each progressive step in destroying the vision of our Founding Fathers. The elite among The Left are not American patriots; quite the opposite. They are internationally-oriented traitors to the Republic.
One area of total confusion is the difference between Communism and Fascism. They are profoundly different. In fact, Fascism arose as a force against Communism.
Communism was conceived in the mid-19th-century by a Germanic, Jewish descendent of rabbis although he himself became hostile to all religion.
“Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.” -Karl Marx (1818-1883)
His basic concept was to redistribute that which was the wealth of the capitalistic class to the laboring class. Ironically, he believed that industrialized Capitalism was a necessary step before Communism; yet, the first country to embrace Communism was an agricultural monarchy, Russia, in 1917. It did so via a violent revolution led by a Jewish military genius with the assumed name of Leon Trotsky (aka/Lev Davidovich Bronstein; 1879-1940). In spite of both Marx and Trotsky’s Jewish heritage, without whom Communism would not have existed, the Communism that followed became virulently anti-Semitic.
Marx’s Communism demands total governmental control. The State owns everything including all land and means of production. Citizens are servants to the State in the persons of politicians and bureaucrats.
Economically, all revenues from production are confiscated by the State, which then distributes them to the proletariat as its masters see fit. Complaints and criticism are treated as sedition to be punished with speed and vigor.
Politically, there is no real democratic element although sham elections may be conducted. Truth is relative to the moment. As Vladimir Lenin (1870-1924) said, Truth is whatever is good for the Party. Any written constitution is as worthless as Stalin’s promises. The political cost of the system to the individual citizen is his liberty replaced by terror. Witness the KGB.
Viewed from the perspective of Biobehavioral Science, with rare exceptions Communism must resort to negative control, given that it violates natural law. Russia under Stalin (1878-1953) tried it and failed catastrophically. China under Mao (1893-1976) tried it and failed disastrously, causing it shortly after Mao’s death to switch its oppressive system towards Fascism. As described in the semi-fictional novel, Retribution Fever . . .
In the name of “humanitarianism and social justice”, the self-anointed will continue trying to destroy the most humane and just system ever devised by mankind — individualistic Capitalism and its companion, positive control, operating in a democratic republic based upon a written constitution protecting life, liberty, and property as well as the pursuit of happiness. Their alternative always has been collectivistic socialism and its companion, negative control, based upon a fluid, “living” constitution oppressing life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness while claiming to protect them.
Fascism, the term being an Italian derivative, was conceived by an Italian journalist, Benito Mussolini (1883-1945) to bundle together disparate political groups in order to resist Communism. He put his concept into practice in 1922.
Economically, it proved spectacularly successful even reviving the Italian cinematographic industry. Subsequently in 1933, Adolf Hitler put it into practice in Germany again with spectacular success decreasing unemployment from 33% to essentially 0%.
Meanwhile, in these United States, economically President Roosevelt floundered his way through the Great Depression until rescued by General Hideki Tojo (1884-1948) of Imperial Japan in 1941 via the attack against Pearl Harbor.
“We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before, and it does not work.” -Henry Morgenthau, Secretary of the Treasury (1934-1945)
Unlike Communism, Fascism directs the use of land and operation of the means of production using laws and regulations but does not own it. Sound familiar? Like Communism, it is totalitarian not simply authoritarian. It, too, allows no dissent.
Whereas Communism replaces God’s theology with political ideology to worship, Fascism offers no such fabric to bind together society. Accordingly, it typically substitutes its leader as a demi-god with spiritual devotion directed towards him as a savior. Be he a benevolent despot, he indeed may be a savior; at least, at the beginning. Mussolini became “il Duce”. Hitler became “der Führer”.
Politically, as with Communism there is no real democratic element although sham elections may be conducted. Truth is relative to the moment. Any written constitution is as worthless as Hitler’s promises. As with Communism, the political cost of the system to the individual citizen is his liberty replaced by terror. Witness the Gestapo.
Unfortunately for their respective nations, both Mussolini and Hitler harbored delusions of military grandeur never to be. In 1939, Mussolini led Italy into a suicidal “Pact of Steel” with Germany, cementing an alliance begun in 1936. In 1941, having achieved a conquest of Western Europe that he never wanted, Hitler led Germany into a suicidal war with Russia. Neither leader had needed declarations of war from its respective legislative body as the U.S. Constitution demands of our presidents, a demand honored by being ignored using so-called resolutions. Resolutions are not declarations. Consequences? Korea. Vietnam. Afghanistan. As do many other abrogations of our constitution by a progressively imperial presidency, they do violence to the foundation of our society.
These United States
“The only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.” -Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831)
What does all this history have to do with these United States today? Plenty.
Whereas many Americans offer complaints accusing the powerful elite of progressively imposing Communism upon them, nothing could be further from the truth. They are imposing the terror of Fascism with their being the rulers directly or indirectly. Witness the ATF, FBI, and IRS.
“Where the people fear the government, you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people, you have liberty.” -John Basil Barnhill (1914).
Each Occidental nation and some others elsewhere will have their own particular brand of Fascism, but each will ally itself faithfully with overarching, international agencies such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the now-perverted World Health Organization to which this commentator once was a consultant before its current fall. The super-wealthy elites often members of the World Economic Forum partially will finance these agencies and, by doing so, be able to coördinate policies and programs internationally among them.
Fascism, socialistic in orientation, will be the future. Such is that towards which these United States are moving. Most Americans will become progressively dependent upon an all-powerful government directed daily by a horde of bureaucrats owing their allegiance to the unconstitutionally embedded Administrative State. This tragedy is the consequence of having devolved from a democratic republic into a republican democracy with matriarchy replacing patriarchy.
We Americans allowed ourselves to be led by evildoers to the bank of the River Styx separating liberty and prosperity from serfdom and poverty. Once crossed into the netherworld on the other side, great nations rarely return.
Can we detour from this Path to Perdition? Can we reroute ourselves onto the Road to Resurrection? If so, how?
Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) recommended occasional rebellions as follows: “I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.”
Be such a rebellion successful today, what? A return to the same system that led us into this dreadful mess? Is there not a better way, perhaps a scientific way — one the consequence of which will not be out of the frying pan into the fire?
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” -Matthew 7:7
Retribution Fever offers a blueprint based upon valid science consistent with reality not invalid ideology divorced from that reality. Unfortunately, unlike the Chinese few Americans are familiar with that science or even interested in becoming familiar with it. Woe be to them! The Chinese are winning. We are losing. The consequences of Americans’ behavioral deficit will be ultimate defeat for liberty and victory for tyranny.
So it is. So it will be unless . . . .
“Every nation has the government for which it is fit.” -Joseph de Maistre (1753-1821)
