As, politicians, corporatists and ‘intellectuals’ extoll the virtues of socialism and march our country full steam ahead to the collective, those misguided souls who think that there is no other solution for humanity than socialism would be well advised to consider this (as, once America gives up on constitutional law in favor of the dream of care for all, there is no turning back): socialism is the antithesis of liberty and individuality.
If you’re getting scorned and ridiculed for expressing your political views, it’s probably because you’re still stuck in the phony left/right paradigm and can only see things through a left or right perspective. That’s EXACTLY what the power brokers (the real rulers in America) want from you. They want people divided — so they can exploit society and maintain their reign over people. BUT, there is another way to look at things. Avoid partisanship altogether (our Founding Fathers did so – because they recognized its divisive nature and, most of them didn’t want political parties for the same reason). Look beyond the left and the right to see the promise of libertarianism – which is the ONLY thing that can counter divisive partisanship and authoritarianism. Become a LIBERTARIAN!
The political debate in America should be about liberty and open and honest government. But, you’ll never have that debate within our two party system because both parties are controlled by a group of elites who rule from the shadows and lie to the masses constantly while they grab up the spoils and steal from the labors of the common people.
Our State Department works in cahoots with the ‘money-powers’ to control the world’s resources as they can. And, when they have to do so, to gain control, they’ll create ‘false-flag’s and bogus wars! It’s that simple. That’s U.S. foreign policy – just an extension of the imperialism of the old British Empire mixed in with the grand scheme of monied-elite for a new world order.
Populist political movements in America tend to develop and operate outside of the left/right partisan political paradigm (that wealthy elites to maintain control over politics, government and society). Modern day populism promotes liberty, which pose a threat to oligarchs, plutocracy and elitist control. Whenever populist movements crop up, the money powers in this country co-opt them, then demonize them through the establishment’s mainstream media propaganda machine to neutralize them (e.g. what the Republican Party has done to the Tea Party Movement). Right now, our federal government is trying to stifle free-speech and the right to protest and dissent to keep populism in check so that the elites do not lose their grip on us!
The NSA’s spying on the American people isn’t a left vs. right issue. The issue is individual privacy vs. government spying. The NSA’s actions are violating our constitutional rights– and, every American should be outraged by what is going on. The fact that people aren’t is scary because it tells me that the vast majority in this country are willing to accept authoritarianism at the expense of individual liberty and freedom. And, such a mindset truly means an end to democracy in America!
