Hi Caroline – and Thank you – !!
Did go to the link – and realized I had already read the article –
As Chomsky pointed out to us long ago all of government (including our courts) are simply
typewriters and it depends on who is doing the writing as to what comes out –
Liberals had the Courts at times urgent to our nation when Civil Rights were the issue –
when there was no free access to birth control, when there was no reproductive freedom
except in limited ways in some states. And when homosexuals were still closeted after
a thousand years or more of oppression and denial of jobs/careers – used as scapegoats
in the Cold War/McCarthy Era.
The majority of us welcomed these changes, but there were many others who were susceptible
to right wing propaganda telling them that they should be angry.
This is a liberal nation – yet many Americans didn’t at all realize the support for liberal
government and liberal ideals because information that would have confirmed that for them
was denied to them. The anti-war opposition in US long ago was over 84% – and its even
higher internationally – yet we have perpetual wars going on under the banner of “Regime Change.”
We are still fighting WWII and Hitler in many ways – and the same methods of operation are
being used by Elites as they used at that time to recruit, run and support Hitler. Especially
in regard to Hitler’s “Nuremberg laws” which made everything he did legal. You have only to
look at Barr’s outrageous suggestion that the president can’t be held criminally liable for anything
as long as he holds the presidency. That insanity becoming unfounded law in the US.
I agree with you and everything in the article - and I’m sure we don’t even know all of the
filthy things the GOP is doing to prevent honest voting in US. But certainly Pelosi, Hoyer
and Schumer don’t have much to say about it. Imagine if the situation were reversed what
the GOP and their supporters would be doing to stop it – !!
(The most Pelosi said (that I’m aware of) on our hackable computers was that she thought
it best not to destroy the trust of citizens in the right to vote!)
We have NOTHING coming from the Dem Party – in fact, we have the reverse - collusion.
This is FASCISM – this is how it works and runs – and since so much of it has happened
in secret it is difficult to convince the public of what has happened and what is happening.
These are lies too big and events too large (9/11) for the public to grasp. Especially after the
New Deal and the TRUST in government FDR inspired.
Nature is making the problem clear –
Whether there is time enough for it to become fully clear that it is Elites and corporations/
CAPITALISM and “Christianity” that have caused this damage there is no way of knowing.
But, imo, citizens will not disrupt what is left of their lives until they fully understand that and
are moved to protect their children. And then, it will likely be too late. IMO, this is what
happened in Germany to allow the unbelievable to happen.
My apologies for being so negative – I wish I could be more optimistic.
Trump is the perfect example of fascism’s insanity and the stonewalling –
There were times when we thought too that Nixon wouldn’t fall – but he finally did.
As I’ve said elsewhere, I began recently to try to reach out to supporters of Trump to try
to understand just why they think the way they do. Unfortunately, I’ve had to stop because
other things are keeping me busy – but will try to resume shortly.
What I think every American has to understand is that our Founders did NOT create a
democracy here; they created an Elite/Patriarchy and gave us no tools whatsoever to create
or run a democracy. We didn’t even have the vote. Look at the difference in the world between
that time despite the Founders and how far we have moved it to the liberal/Enlightenment side.
Nader has often pointed that out –
What is happening now is that Trump is trying for the sake of Elites to undo all the liberal change
that has been created over 300 plus years even without any real tools to do it.
