Numbers 9 and 10 were the last two Essays written but I placed them first on the reading list because people’s personal plates are usually so full it is often difficult to find time for anything other than their personal issues. We are between that oft talked about “rock and a hard place” and the gap is narrowing like a vice being slowly closed. It has literally come down to a matter of survival, life or death. It is obvious the left has gone collectively insane and those that don’t see it are also insane. Mass hysteria is a very real phenomena that takes on a life of its own. How easy and quickly mass hysteria over even something minor can sweep through the population was made apparent during the “Great Toilet Paper Panic” of 2020. The absurdity of it should not be lost to memory. There were fistfights over toilet paper, over masks and we know Walmart has fights over toys at Christmas sales. Wait until the system collapses and there is no food or water or fuel or medicine or power. After reading Essay 9 on Separation and Essay 10 on the need for Military Intervention, which I know most of you will reject both, read the rest to see why I feel they are the only two options. If the left gains control they are not going to suddenly become sane they are going to be empowered as their insanity will have been validated. They are already talking about a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” to persecute Trump supporters. There is talk of taking the children of Trump voters away from them and reeducating them. This is right out of the novel of the dictatorship of 1984. These people are crazy, stupid or traitors, or all three. The left has planned a coup against the President and have set the left up to support it. Imagine the violent scenes you have been seeing nightly mushroom in size and in level of violence. We are running out of time. Things are moving and changing so fast I may do an Essay 11 with new pertinent information or items that will bolster the first 10. If the Democrats win in November collectively we are out of time. We must avoid violence. These two (9 and 10) are both a bit long but in order for them to be close to stand alone writings I had to refer to numerous things from previous essays.
This was written on the day after the “election”:
ONE OF OUR TWO CHOICES
“Now when man’s future seems so vast, catastrophe threatens to cut us from it. The dangers with which depression, dictatorship, false recovery and war are having us in have become so grave and imminent that we no longer need concern ourselves with proving how grave and near they are. We need concern ourselves instead with the problem of escaping them and the cruel dilemma we face: whether to risk peace or freedom? . . . .”
“It is not an easy way – who expects one? – And to many it will seem at first too hard to be practical. But this is because its difficulties and dangers are greatest at the start; other ways that seem easier and safer to begin with, grow increasingly hard and dangerous, and lead nowhere. . . . . “From “Union Now” by Clarence K. Streit (1940)
There should be very little doubt that the United States is on the verge of collapse. According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll in USA Today 06/09/2020, 80% of Americans feel the country is out of control. Things are either in control or out of control. If partially in or out of control they are out of control. It is like being half dead. If you are half dead you are alive. You might be dying but you are alive. The odds definitely favor a collapse and a gambler would bet on it. Without draconian measures the system is going to collapse under its own weight, complexity and trying to be all things to all people. We in the red areas, states and counties, need to let the military know we support them 100% because I have a feeling things are going to get ugly and they are between a rock and a hard place also. They have responsibility to the nation which is divided into two totally incompatible visions. They realize which side has their backs and support them(the red) so they should have ours. They also know which side wants to slash their budget by $80 billion and has nothing but derision for the Space Force which is needed. The Speaker of the House pointing her fingers at the back of the President as you would hold a gun and ripping his State of the Union address up tells you everything you need to know about the left. It is obvious they have been compromised by foreign enemies. Is it possible the military has been compromised? Yes because the plan to undermine and over throw the US has been in play a long time but of all our institutions they would be the one that would and could resist it the most. The military has a code of honor that civilians do not have.. If they have been compromised we have lost anyway so not much would matter. Like all democratic states America is going to collapse because it has become too large and too dysfunctional and tries to satisfy too many conflicting goals. Pleasing everyone pleases no one.
Since this was originally written and posted many Democrat controlled cities have gone up in flames with riots and looting. There have been thousands of buildings looted and burned and a number killed and the toll keeps going up at this time. The American left has literally gone insane and the basic ingredient of the left is hate for virtually everything. They don’t know what they are for. Ask them and you get answers so vague and general they have no meaning whatsoever and the answer will also usually come in a nasty tone. If not ask them to explain their position then the tone will get ugly. Democrats and the left are motivated not by reason and rational thought but by emotion. They have placed a symbolic face on that hate by using President Trump as the unifying factor representing, to them, all that is wrong. They are the exact same type of citizens in the novel “1984” but don’t see it. They have literally gone clinically insane and democracy is impotent in the face of mass insanity. In fact it is politically and economically advantageous to cater to it. The United States is so fractured and the divide so wide there is nothing united about the United States anymore. It is so polarized there is no depolarizing it, no repairing the divide. In the words of Milton in his epic poem “Paradise Lost”: “For never can true reconcilement grow Where wounds of deadly hate have peirc’d so deep.”
This was planned by those that want to collapse America and the West and have used our freedom and democracy against us. It is the goal of globalists to have a one world government and has been in the works for a long long time and was organized beforehand much of it by foreign influence. If you remember in a previous essay I gave the explanation of fifth columnists which is how it was accomplished. I will explain fifth columnists again in Essay 10. The fact the movement was global shows it was part of an organized movement involving foreign influence to bring down the United States. The United States stands in the way of a “one world order.” Many of the Democrat leaders are in on it or are staying passive because of being targeted themselves or being blackmailed. Many businesses are supporting it because they have been threatened. That is called extortion. Either that or they have the plan on being in the ruling class. Economically we are on the verge of bankruptcy and it is beyond understanding how many people can’t see it. We are blindly, and for accuracy and added effect I might add stupidly, entering the formative phase for a type of Orwellian 1984 nightmare or a science fiction com world (communist). As we know many science fiction books have been quite accurate in their predictions. There are many science fiction books that contain future dystopian societies as a theme but it seems very few read books anymore. I mentioned in prior essays studies that show our kids want to be YouTube stars while Chinese kids want to be astronauts. That shows our future and many are not capable of understanding the ramifications of what I just said. Philip Wylie in “Generation of Vipers”, written in the 40s, wrote of the average American’s English abilities and reading tastes. “. . . . has no adult wish, ever, to read any book printed in it except such stuff as wet dreams are made of.” He was right then and it has only gotten worse.
I do not know if it can be reversed as it seems history has sadly demonstrated that a large percentage of the human race is not given to critical thinking and is not self-governing. Unless under a certain level of control humanity as a whole reacts emotionally from its basic instincts and goes from one crisis to another wildly swinging from one extreme to another like Luther’s drunken peasant who when prevented from falling off a horse on one side falls off the other side. Perhaps Mencken was right when he said civilization and democracy may be self-limiting diseases and have suicidal tendencies. I am, as I have said, an avid reader especially of history, science fiction, and books that discuss and analyze the human condition (even fiction often has a profound message or insight). I have followed current events since high school in the 60s and I see nothing that gives hope to the contrary. Looking back with that wonderful hindsight humans have I can see various points we took the wrong turn at many of the forks in the road. Unfortunately when you take a wrong fork every fork after that is on the wrong road. If on a foot path or on a highway you can turn around and return to the correct fork, however, in life you can’t go back to the fork because it is time not a direction on a physical plane. Looking back the correct choice is, after the fact, usually so obvious we should have chosen that fork. My basic core belief is that overall humanity as a mass, if given a choice, will almost invariably do the wrong thing. People are not self governing. They are up to a point .but the point has limitations and it is obvious we have passed those limitations. They don’t want freedom they want security. They want a comfortable life. Mencken said that when the government outlawed alcohol during Prohibition the average worker didn’t mourn the loss of his freedom he mourned the loss of his beer. President Franklin Roosevelt in his Four Freedoms speech said the four freedoms were: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from fear and freedom from want. I think it was Harry Truman that said something to the effect that the average person didn’t want four freedoms he “wants four sandwiches.” Fear is one of the major motivators of humanity and politicians play up to it. The pandemic, economic turmoil and the rioting have vividly demonstrated that. Bertrand Russell in his book “Power” wrote:
“The ordinary quiet citizen, we said, is led largely by fear when he submits to a leader. . . . .”
“The kind of mob that the orator will desire is one more given to emotion than to reflection, one filled with fears and consequent hatreds, one impatient of slow and gradual methods, and at once exasperated and hopeful.”
“The cases in which fanaticism has brought nothing but disaster are much more numerous than those in which it has brought even temporary success.”
“The impulse of submission, which is just as real and just as common as the impulse to command, has its roots in fear. The most unruly gang of children ever imagined will become completely amenable to the orders of a competent adult in an alarming situation, such as a fire; when the war came, the Pankhurst’s made their peace with Lloyd George. Whenever there is acute danger, the impulse of most people is to seek out authority and submit to it; . . . . “ [The Pankhurst’s were women’s suffragettes in England prior to WW1. Their bitter enemy was Lloyd George whom they considered the worst enemy of women but felt the threat of Germany was so great they placed their confidence in him. They felt he was the person most capable of dealing with the war.]
Both parties are equally guilty and responsible for our present situation but the Democrats are the greatest threat at this point. The Republicans are close behind though. Although the situation has been building for over a hundred years of errors the Republicans actually began our present predicament of being in danger of losing to China by picking the wrong fork in the road where it could have been prevented. (That was Nixon recognizing Communist China and Reagan opening the door.) I explained my reasoning in Essay 8. It is not so much it was the wrong fork it is they rushed in without proper preparations owing allegiance to big business. (I believe in capitalism so don’t take that remark as me being a socialist. I don’t believe in crime or treason.) The first thing to do would have been to understand the terrain and inhabitants so to speak. In plain words they should have understood China, Chinese history and the Chinese mind. Businesses picked that fork for us long before it was taken. They had their eyes on China for a long while seeing a large market and a source of cheap labor and saw the student demonstrations in the 60s and could predict the direction of the nation. Whatever liberals think of capitalism capitalists are not stupid. Rich people are rich for a reason. Of course when the Republicans were not in charge the Democrats picked up the ball and with great gusto ran with it acting as shamelessly as the Republicans. I have gone into both in previous essays. The Clinton, Obama and both Bush administrations are responsible for our present situation. They and their cronies personally profited greatly due to their policies on China. The Republicans are of no less a threat than the Democrats in the long run even though at this instant they are the stabilizing anchor. Whether they remain so remains to be seen. Very few in either party are command material and we need that quality now more than anything. There are far more in the Republican Party though. Donald Trump views the world through a business lens, which at this point is to our advantage, and has been doing a better job than any of the others of both parties whose hat was in the ring in the 2016 primaries would have done and is presently better suited than any of the Democrats. He recognizes the threats posed by China and also is better suited to repair a broken economy. His achievements prior to the pandemic were excellent. He was bringing some businesses back from out of the country and had the lowest unemployment rates for blacks, Hispanics and women. Unfortunately he comes across as rude and obnoxious and, as I said prior, he often doesn’t think before he speaks which often gives his enemies ammunition. Never arm your enemies. (Actually they all speak before they think and thinking first is one of the most important qualities of command leadership.)
We are at the point we have only two viable options, only two. Due to the coronavirus pandemic we had startling revelations of just how much we depend on China for the goods of our needs and wants. We no longer even manufacture the basic necessities required for our basic survival needs including medicine. There has to be accounting by those responsible and we have to take our own negligence into consideration for not being more mindful. We also have to realize when we bought a microwave for $100 dollars over one that cost $250 we were contributing to the problem. While we were collecting coins, assembling model planes, smoking pot or watching baseball or football or Honey Boo Boo or Hip Hop Nation or Love After Lock Up or some other totally mindless entertainment or doing who knows what we should have paid some of that attention to those we put in the driver’s seats but we didn’t. We also should have purchased the $250 microwave but we didn’t. Also while our attention was focused on nonexistent Russian collusion China took many large steps forward while we were oblivious. Many of us are not oblivious any longer though. China has pulled ahead. They do not have to tolerate rioting, looting, arson and people wanting to destroy China. In China endangering public safety can be a capital offense. Had China been running the U.S. there would have been thousands of missing or dead rioters.
China plans ahead decades while we only look an election ahead. Shortsightedness is a fatal flaw of democracy and shallow pampered humanity. They are not a diverse nation and do not play the losing game of identity politics. Nor do they waste time and money for touchy feely, group hug training. They don’t divide their nation up into pockets of diversity they are all Chinese and have a united goal and that goal is to displace the US as the global powerhouse. They do what is best for the country while a large percent of our leaders, both business and political, look to what they can legally steal. FACT! Look at our leaders economic worth and how they got it. Elizabeth Warren received $400,000 for teaching two classes. That is a form of theft and there are countless examples we know about and undoubtedly hundreds of times in myriads of things that we don’t know about. The universities under control of communists bought support for their position. This is why universities turned out class after class of students indoctrinated instead of educated. We gave them money without enough oversight and strings attached. That is as much stealing from the system as is outright robbery. We are an example of what happens when non self governing humanity governs itself. The reality is if there was/is any collusion it would probably be between the Democrats and the Chinese. They both have benefited immensely from the present problems. So much so you have to look at the situation with a skeptical eye.
Let’s look at the results of what was accomplished that benefited both Chinese Communists and the Democrats in this “accidental” pandemic.
- The pandemic placed us in a locked down, quarantine status creating situation that Americans are unused to and adverse to and is taking a psychological toll. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It all but collapsed the economy causing the stock market to drop thousands of points. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It caused massive unemployment among all segments of society including Blacks, Hispanics, and women three groups that had the highest level of employment in decades. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It created fear of the pandemic, fear for the economy and set the stage for violence. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It disrupted the trade war with China in which Trump was attempting to bring about an economic equilibrium in trade between the U.S. and China. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It allowed the Chinese to make great strides to replacing us as the world’s number one economy. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It weakened our ability to aid our ally Taiwan in their continuing attempt to stave off Chinese aggression towards annexing the island nation. China is building up military forces in China across the Taiwan Strait. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It weakened our ability to come to the aid of Hong Kong in their battle to maintain their autonomy from China. Many in Hong Kong carried American flags asking the U.S. and Trump to support them. Many of these have been rounded up and held by the Chinese communists. Also China is building up military forces across the border from Hong Kong. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- The Chinese have made more progress claiming the South China Sea as Chinese territory. It has diminished our ability to counter them. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It allowed the Chinese to gain holdings in foreign nations hit hard such as Italy and Spain by the pandemic by buying assets of troubled companies at bargain prices strengthening their economic position. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It has majorly disrupted our educational system keeping students of all school levels, from grade schools to universities, from a smooth flowing education exacerbating an already in progress educational decline. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It has created an even wider and deeper divide between the left and the right due to the violence and has facilitated and promoted rioting, looting, arson and lawlessness. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It has created an atmosphere of hate between the police and local residents and a sizable segment of the population. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It has jeopardized the prospect of many businesses to rebuild in the neighborhoods affected by the rioting increasing poverty in those neighborhoods. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It has made some large companies rethink investing in the United States due to continuing violence. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It has taken the United States closer to collapse. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It aided China in what they considered their “Dangerous Decade” the decade between 2020 and 2030 when the U.S. could not ignore China’s growing economic and military power but they were not sure they could best us in outright conflict. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It has aided candidates that want to drastically reduce our military budget which places our ability to defend ourselves and our allies in jeopardy. It also has placed NASA in a position of having budget cuts. This happened in the Obama administration. Social programs for artificially created social problems take precedent in a democratic socialist society. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It has aided candidates that are in favor of Marxism, a system that has never worked. China and Russia are moving away from Marxism because it did not work and moving towards one that did work while we are moving towards a system that does not work moving away from one that did work. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It has facilitated people with political agendas to manipulate statistics on the COVID19 pandemic death rates to indicate a much higher number than actually exist. Some places list a death from a cause other than the coronavirus as a death from it if they tested positive at time of death. Some test sites were reporting a 100% positive test rate when it actually was as low as 10%. A 100% positivity rate is impossible. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It has disrupted religious activities in the United States, mainly Christianity, something both the Chinese Communists and the Democrats hate. If services are only possible on line there are some that won’t return when they can reopen. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- They have given permission to rioters, which they call protestors, to assemble in large numbers but have banned conservatives from gatherings. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- Prosecutors in some Democrat run cities are refusing to prosecute crimes involving theft under $950. This benefits both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- Many Democrat run cities and counties are releasing thousands of criminals including some with crimes of violence due to leftist prosecuting attorneys. This has made honest, law abiding citizens unsafe, This has been facilitated by Democrats and their “owner” George Soros (provable fact). This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- It has emboldened those attacking Western culture by allowing statutes and symbols to be torn down and destroyed.This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
- By creating confusion and destabilizing society it has allowed and even facilitated the revision of history to fit a narrative rather than facts. In order to learn from the past it is necessary to accurately know the past. This benefited both the Chinese and the Democrats and hurt Trump in an election year.
I am skeptical of something that just happened to show up at a time convenient to the Chinese Communists and the Democrat Party. Two groups that have similar goals and agendas while having a common foe. The Democrats tried for three years to get rid of Trump via the sleaziest methods anf failed then in an election year a pandemic hits originating from China and gives the Democrats a boost. The Democrat nominee and winner in the election is pro China. The Chinese think decades ahead while we tend to think short term. Our vision clouds after the next business quarter or next election. The Democrats also follow the short term thinking pattern but are quick to latch on to a crises that has an emotional basis and milk it forever. Democrat politician Rahm Emanuel said “You never want a serious crises to go to waste”
Both options, whichever chosen, require the first item on the agenda is to take inventory of three categories: what we have, what we don’t have and what we need. We need to evaluate our positions with everything and that includes, but not limited to: allies (especially allies), resources, petroleum reserves and deposits, gold and other minerals especially rare earth minerals, our land and resources owned both by us and by foreign nations and foreign firms, our factories and manufacturing capabilities. What we make that is necessary and what is the equivalent of useless toy Chinese finger traps. (If you don’t know what they are Google them.) Our transportation system (trains, planes, automobiles and trucks), our farms and food supplies and processors. Our housing, debts, human resources (skills, education, etc.,) our population and of the following not only equipment and supplies but personnel: medical facilities, emergency services, fire departments and military. We are deficient in many things even basics. We have only one major aircraft manufacturer left, Boeing, and they closed due to the virus. Will they reopen? Who knows? (As of this moment I have found out some workers have been recalled but not all.) As I said we do not manufacture the majority of even our pharmaceuticals. Our manufacture of tools and vehicles is far less than it was and way less than we need. Once most of the world drove American made cars and flew in American made planes. Our manufacture of steel and metals is way down also. We are in serious trouble.
All these wonderful things the Democrats talk about like free food, free healthcare, free housing, free energy, free education, free money, reparations, guaranteed income, etc., requires an economy that produces something of value, even professional skills, to exchange in order to get these things. Much of the left’s base support are those that have neither skills or practical value and are more trouble than they are worth. They apparently think the world is just going to give them to us free. Considering most of the parasitism is within the ranks of the Democrats it is not possible for them to build something. Their rising star economist and international relations expert, AOC, is a socialist and dumb as a rock. (I was being kind.) She was probably passed because she had the right political views according to her professors, the right gender, the right culture or was being eyed by political operatives as she fit a desirable profile and would be a perfect Judas goat. She has never said anything of value in her political career. Several years ago I was talking with a woman from Russia. She was married to an American and had been here some years and we got talking politics and she was just dumbfounded over the socialists that were popping up. She said it didn’t work in Russia and their satellites and it won’t work here. She knew we had been outsourcing for decades and she said what killed Russia was it didn’t make anything. We don’t either now.
We are faced with two options only. The riots and looting that are taking place has placed us in that position. The Black Lives Matter group that is responsible has been extorting and shaking businesses down for millions of dollars. Some businesses will either just close and go out of business or some large businesses will leave the US if the situation is not brought under control. The loss or exit of jobs will add weight to an already overburdened system and put more strain on the remaining businesses and workers hastening the collapse of the nation and violence will result which is what the left wants. The Black Lives Matter and antifa groups that have reeked so much havoc are Marxist organizations and businesses can read the writing on the wall. Part of the reason so many businesses outsourced in the first place was they could see the direction of the country watching the student demonstrations during the 60s. At that time American businesses controlled the world from here in the US. To relocate was expensive and although they recouped the cost it would have been easier for much of it to remain here. It seems the left always undermines itself. Those students and protestors back then were not smart enough to see the consequences of their actions. The protestors today are not smart enough to see that Black Lives Matter has nothing to do with George Floyd or black lives. The protestors are being used and will be dumped or disposed of in the future. They do not have the intelligence or emotional stability to be of any practical use. If the Marxists do prevail the rioters will learn a hard lesson they did not learn in school. Liberal professors did not tell them that after a revolution revolutionaries become more trouble than they are worth to the new regime.
Option Two, which I am discussing first. is the red states and hopefully as many counties as possible and the blue states and counties go their separate ways. It should be and could be by mutual consent. The only reason it would not happen that way is the hate and arrogance of the left. I know it would be a radical and complicated undertaking but if the system collapses it would have to be done anyway and under much worse conditions with far less favorable results. The longer the delay the more difficult it will be. Towards the end of the essay I have listed a few issues that I can think of that would need to be addressed and I am sure everyone else could come up with one each. I just superficially touched on them as it would take many minds to detail them out. I think everyone needs to consider the possibility that one of the options is necessary. Better start thinking ahead. It is plain that the goal of the left is to collapse the US. The left knows it is the parasitical and undisciplined side and will not survive without the red. Remove the parasite from the host and the parasite dies and the host usually recovers. I don’t like the word secession as it is one side seceding rather than both going separate ways but often any reference to separation usually comes under the heading secession so I sometimes have to use it. I also don’t like secession because that sounds permanent and I can envision an eventual reunification to some degree. The blue areas will ultimately continue disintegrating until they finally outright collapse. At that point they can be merged back with stipulations they make improvements and adjustments to their systems and basically do it the logical way. Also the choice of who is allowed to merge back with them gets figured into the mix. No sense in having the people responsible getting a second chance to collapse the red. I don’t like the idea of even temporarily separating but we are coming to the point that the violence that is forming will do more harm with less chance of repair. It is almost like quarantining the infected from the healthy, something we can all understand at this point all too well. As an autonomous nation border security could be established. When looking at current events I know many of us are feeling like William L. Shirer, the author of the “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany”. He was in Germany during the rise of Nazism and pre WW2 years as a correspondent and wrote the following of his observations:
“I myself was to experience how easily one is taken in by a lying and censored press and radio in a totalitarian state. Though unlike most Germans I had daily access to foreign newspapers, especially those of London, Paris and Zurich, which arrived the day after publication, and though I listened regularly to the BBC and other foreign broadcasts, my job necessitated the spending of many hours a day in combing the German press, checking the German radio, conferring with Nazi officials and going to party meetings. It was surprising and sometimes consternating to find that notwithstanding the opportunities I had to learn the facts and despite one’s inherent distrust of what one learned from Nazi sources, a steady diet over the years of falsifications and distortions made a certain impression on one’s mind and often misled it. No one who has not lived for years in a totalitarian land can possibly conceive how difficult it is to escape the dread consequences of a regime’s calculated and incessant propaganda. Often in a German home or office or sometimes in a casual conversation with a stranger in a restaurant, a beer hall, a café, I would meet with the most outlandish assertions from seemingly educated and intelligent persons. It was obvious that they were parroting some piece of nonsense they had heard on the radio or read in the newspapers. Sometimes one was tempted to say as much, but on such occasions one was met with such a stare of incredulity, such a shock of silence, as if one had blasphemed the Almighty, that one realized how useless it was even to try to make contact with a mind which had become warped and for whom the facts of life had become what Hitler and Goebbels, with their cynical disregard for truth, said they were.”
While we we were occupied by the mindless things we missed the infiltration by communists into universities, social justice movements, elected and bureaucratic positions of government, television, sports, social media and newspapers. We have watched once credible news papers such as the New York Times spout such outrageous twisting of truth and censorship they have become no more than a tabloid level fish wrapper. We have watched the televised news media become so egregiously deceptive and false that what are obvious falsehoods are accepted as fact due to shear repetition. What is shocking is how many actually believe them. The reason is the millennial generation has been taught falsehoods in schools and universities and history has been distorted to them and they believe it without question because that is the way they learned it. Another thing we learned from the pandemic was some schools that had to open over the net had teachers that wanted assurance the parents would not eavesdrop on the schooling. That can be read a few ways. Why would teachers not want parents to know what was being taught to their children? The parents pay these teachers salaries. I have been in a couple of unions and overall I am a union man but I think it is time to reevaluate the power unions have over the ability, or inability, to have standards for teachers. To have incompetents or deviants or enemies of the state teaching children needs to come to a screeching halt.
The opening of the schools have had and are still going through a confusing time. What would have been logical is to have some classes resume and some not. The basic classes such as math, reading, English and history should have resumed with smaller class sizes. It would have been easy to maintain social distancing and also give students more individual attention. Instead of one class with 30 students have three classes with 10 students each. It would also minimize the overall number of students in the school thus reducing the potential for infections. I know some teachers would be upset because of the reduced class subjects but many were complaining about returning at all. Another way would be to have the teachers change classrooms instead of the students. Also stagger breaks that would make for less contact in the bathrooms and hallways. Those measures would reduce much congestion and interaction in crowded hallways and restrooms. You can’t have it both ways. It would be like the classification of workers and businesses: essential and nonessential. Why the people with positions of authority that get paid to administrate don’t think of these things is hard to fathom.
We are at the point where we have been backed into a corner with only two choices. Many of the problems we have and will have are the same whichever way we decide to go. If the Democrats win they will start pushing their agenda which is so radical it will be another factor in the collapse of the nation. Those Democrat supporters that believe in this agenda show the deficiency in intelligence that is the fatal flaw of democracy: ignorant and the dull minded people vote. Many members of the government are fifth columnists. The four Democrat members of what is known as the “squad” definitely are. They are outright enemies of the country and we have allowed them to infiltrate the government. After listening to them only someone that lacks basic intelligence would not realize it. Everything they are for is designed to collapse the nation. What they propose costs money that we do not have. We do not have the tax base to support it either. Some of the large businesses, of the few that are left, will bail to a friendlier environment reducing the tax base even further. It will be a situation like New York on a national scale. Governor Coumo of New York is begging the rich to return to New York. There are numerous nations that are better environments for them. That is why many businesses left in the first place even for China. China found out Marxism didn’t work so they began a slow controlled movement towards a freer economy. These businesses could see the future something most liberal millennials do not have the stability, the intelligence, the maturity or the experience to see. To even consider such radical ideas shows a complete lack of intelligence and a lack of understanding of history, human nature and economics. It shows what I have said all along that the Democrats are a party of social workers and are unqualified for command positions. California is a good example. Once the wealthiest state in the US it has now become a haven for homeless vagabonds and criminals. It is rapidly going into debt and is looking to be bailed out by the national government using the pandemic as a cover for their poor leadership. The left would just print money which only creates more and more poverty as more and more money is printed. It could actually fall under the “law of diminishing returns.” I can also use a reality mentioned in this paragraph as proof liberals are crazy or flawed (in this case stupid). They flee high crime and high tax blue areas for red areas and vote blue, the very same philosophy and governance they fled turning the red area into a blue area. Remember the old maxim that to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results is the definition of insanity. If not insanity then deeply flawed (stupidity).
Two members of the “squad” have proposed the BREATHE Act which virtually eliminates law enforcement. Defunding police results in declining law enforcement and an increase in crime. Some of the emotionally motivated governors, mayors and city council members that proposed defunding the police are now starting to realize it. It was a no-brainer as what would happen. Link to BREATHE Act is:
Excerpts from the article
“Washington, DC – Progressive U.S. Representatives Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Massachusetts) on Tuesday unveiled legislation to defund police and pay reparations to African Americans and people harmed by police brutality.”
“The proposed legislation – the BREATHE Act – would eliminate the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and ban the use of surveillance technology, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
“Banned technology would include ankle monitors and drones currently used for monitoring by law enforcement.
“An overview of the proposed bill showed that it would eliminate federal funding for local police departments and federal agencies, the New York Post reported.
“Instead, the money would be allocated to social welfare, health care, education and environmental programs.
“The bill also aimed to dramatically reduce spending for the U.S. Department of Defense . . . . . . . . “
The financial and natural resources are not there and never will be. How we got to the point where legislation as absurd as this would even be thought of much less than seriously considered shows we no longer have the basic intelligence necessary to advance and survive. It shows our intellectual level is declining in both the elected representatives and those that elect them. Read the excerpts from “The Decline of Intelligence in America” in the Books Worth Reading section of this site. I think much of it has to be the “genetic twilight” many scientists believe in. As well as intelligence and physical illnesses many believe that mental illnesses are also heritable. The actions of a certain portion of the population are not sane. A large number of those that support them are also not sane either. Sane people do not champion such outlandish, impossible ideas. The links below are from The People Shapers (Excerpts are in the Books Worth Reading section) and sciencemag.org on the declining physical and mental state of humanity in the West: This figures into our present problems to a significant degree.
“IS THE HUMAN GENE POOL DETERIORATING?”
“Among the causes, some scientists cite the advance of medicine first. We can now keep alive many people who suffer from mental or physical genetic ailments, or who are genetic carriers, until they are able to – and do – have children.”
“Some point as well to our easier style of life. The automobile, central heating, and packaged foods make it easier for the physically weak and defective to survive. Natural selection today is not as rigorous a people-culling effect as it was a mere half-century ago.”
“Dobzhansky has predicted a ‘genetic twilight ‘if present trends continue. Some put the pollution of our genetic pool more specifically. They contend that in each future century the number of defective people dependent on medical technology to survive will increase by 8%. . . . . .[I believe it increases each generation and I also believe that in the United states and Europe where the technology is greater the percentage is greater than 8%. Read a newspaper for proof.]
“Others make the more controversial assertion that we are also trending genetically towards duller-wittedness. Through the ages, those endowed with genes that contributed to higher mental ability had a better chance of surviving. Today, these brighter people, it is argued, are more often involved in family planning and having small families than the less-endowed mentally, who are more likely to be among those with large families.”
“Some suggest that welfare policies, in United States at least, have the effect of encouraging many of the poor to have children they might not otherwise have. In a much-argued-about article on IQ differentials published in 1969, the educational psychologist Arthur Jensen asked: ‘Is there a danger that current welfare policies, unaided by eugenic foresight, could lead to the genetic enslavement of a substantial segment of our population? . . . . . “
And from an article in sciencemag.org
By Roni Dengler Feb. 8, 2018
“Researchers have long known that genes influence mental illness. Five years ago, for example, the global Psychiatric Genomics Consortium found that people with autism, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder frequently share certain DNA variations. But that 2013 study did not say how those genetic alterations might lead to symptoms.”
“Dan Geschwind, a neurologist and neuroscientist at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), who spearheaded the new work, wanted to know what happens at the molecular level in the brains of people with these disorders.”
“The analysis revealed that certain psychiatric diseases are more similar biologically than their characteristic symptoms indicate.”
We are at the point Shirer was in with his above quote watching the takeover of a society happening before his eyes. Separation is one of the two choices we are faced with. If someone has a better idea don’t keep it to yourself. It wouldn’t be easy but we would be left with no choice if the Democrats win in November and the #1 option is not possible. We of course hope and pray our side wins but we have to be realistic and again think of the words of Yoda: :”Always in motion is the future.” It is remiss to not have a back up plan. We would have to cut our losses and accept the reality that a half a loaf is better than no loaf. If one of the only two choices we have fail to come about violence and break up will be the inevitable result. After a civil war reconciliation would be impossible. Violence is occurring now on a large scale nationwide. It is like a fire that starts as a controlled burn and gets out of control. It will burn until it burns everything combustible and burns itself out leaving nothing but rubble. We better get it under control as we still have a lot that will burn.. The two sides are too incompatible to remain united and the reality is they are not united. They can’t even engage in dialogue when faced with a pandemic and the potential for mass casualties, an economic disaster and communists violently attacking the government and nation from within. They are communists regardless of what they say. Many have even admitted it. Instead of trying to solve the issues they purposely complicate them and politicize them and their emotionally motivated actions undermine and prevent any realistic effort to properly deal with them.
We are watching at this time Democrat cities going up in flames being rioted in and thousands of stores are being looted and burned and people are being killed. Democrat leaders approve as we know silence is approval, or it is cowardice or stupidity. They are refusing to let the police do anything which resulted in at least one death in the “summer of love” zone in Seattle. (Since this was written the number of dead has risen.) One of the injured survivors is suing the police for not responding when it was his companions that blocked police access. Those arrested are being released with no bail a few hours after arrest. Many Democrat cities are doing this and there have been many crimes committed by these released hoodlums including rape, robbery and murder. This chaos has been carefully planned to take out Trump and collapse America. The red does not approve of rioting and looting or other senseless acts of violence so they would be better off being separated. The rioters and looters and arsonists and killers can stay where they are appreciated so they would not be hindered by red states and counties with laws prohibiting such behavior. The liberal leaders don’t even consider the reality these criminals are still out there after the riots cease waiting for the next golden opportunity to get a free TV or destroy something. That is their idea of shopping and some liberal leaders have openly said so.
Separation would also answer the question of which philosophy is correct. (I will answer that: actually neither completely.) Separation is an option even though I am opposed to it except as a last resort. It would ultimately become necessary if the Democrats win in November and the other option did not come to fruition. It has to be, and I can’t emphasize this enough, a separation without violence. A civil war is to be avoided but the left may make that impossible. The idea is to prevent violence if we can but the left is pushing for violence. I flipped positions on the order of our choices after an extremely interesting by chance conversation with someone I would have considered one of the last persons I would have had an enlightening conversation with–a Muslim. After the conversation I did a lot of critical thinking and reevaluating. I will give the synopsis of the conversation at the end of this essay. Look at the following maps. Some of you may be in for a surprise.
The following map is the political breakdown of the nation 2016. The red being Republican and the blue being Democrat.
This map shows: “The Red Area Features A Total Population Greater Than The Grey” Found on the site Ranker.
This map shows:“Blue States That Have A Smaller Population Than Los Angeles County” Also found on the site Ranker (That is of course each individual state by itself compared to LA County.)
On a political map the blue areas are metropolitan. Map number one shows the political division. The reason the Democrats want to abolish the electoral college is so those few areas will dominate and dictate to the rest of the country. Since the blue areas have gerater populations they could and would. It would basically be mob rule with no controls. There are numerous drawbacks a major one being the red and blue have radically different values and philosophies. The blue imposing their values on the red would end in violence. The electoral college was originally put in place to prevent the larger and more populated states from bullying the smaller and less populated states. The left always brings slavery and racism into everything including the electoral college. Like the pharmaceutical industry that thrives on disease the Democrats thrive on racial and social problems. They will create racial and social problems if there are none. They will keep one artificially alive on life support for political gains. There was a meme on Facebook that had a teacher in a medical school pointing to words on a blackboard that said “A patient cured is a customer lost.” The left has the philosophy of “Problems and racial division solved are voters lost.” It is a way to control select populations. By abolishing the electoral college they would win every election effectively making a one party state. A one party state is a dictatorship. Of course if you are not stupid you knew that. They are the fascists. Their platform and philosophy verifies it. They want dictatorial control and the abolishing the electoral college would give it to them. Most people that are on the abolish the electoral college are emotionally motivated and ignorant of the facts. It gives them a feeling of superiority for being so “avant garde.”
How they bring slavery into the electoral college debate is because of the 3/5 compromise which the left twists to their advantage by making it emotional. When the country was formed the North wanted slaves to count as property because property was taxed. Obviously the South did not want them to be taxed. They wanted slaves to count as people. The North did not want that because that would give the South more representation in the legislatures. They settled on them being counted as 3/5 of a person. Had this compromise not been reached the South would not have joined the union. Had it not joined the union there would be no United States. If there was no United States you who are now reading this would probably not exist. Had there not been slavery none of us would exist. The entire ancestry patterns would have been altered.
The majority of founders did not approve of slavery regardless of what the left tells you. Many owned slaves because they inherited them and to free them was not as simple as opening the door and saying “You’re free.” The owner had to prove they were capable of supporting themselves and surviving. Booker T. Washington wrote an extremely interesting perspective on when the slaves were freed by “The Emancipation Proclamation” and the end of the Civil War. It is in his book “Up From Slavery.” Read it. It is a fascinating and informative book. Until I read it I did not know many things including slaves could own guns. Also the founders put a clause in the Constitution that would end the slave trade in 1809. It prohibited the importation of any more slaves from that year on.. Most figured slavery would eventually end.
What does the Constitution say about secession (separation)? The following was found on the American Historical Association’s website under the title “Can a State Constitutionally secede?”
A couple of sentences from the article. Interesting read:
“This is one of the questions of the day, and it appears to be no longer a mere abstract or theoretical question. The Constitution makes no provision for secession. A Government is not a corporation whose existence is limited by a fixed period of time, nor does it provide a means for its own dissolution. . . . . . “
“But it does not follow that because a State cannot secede constitutionally, it is obliged under all circumstances to remain in the Union. There is a natural right, which is reserved by all men, and which cannot be given to any Government, and no Government can take it away. It is the natural right of a people to form a Government for their mutual protection, for the promotion of their mutual welfare, and for such other purposes as they may deem most conducive to their mutual happiness and prosperity; but if for any cause the Government so formed should become inimical to the rights and interests of the people, instead of affording protection to their persons and property, and securing the happiness and prosperity, to attain which it was established, it is the natural right of the people to change the Government regardless of Constitutions. . . . . . . “
It is apparent that the blue areas are incapable or unwilling to maintain and provide safety, security and stability.
The following are a few sentences from the Mises Institute explaining secession (separation) followed by the link. Again quite interesting:
“Sometimes, though, states are forced to contract in size and scope. This usually happens when the cost of maintaining the status quo becomes higher than the cost of allowing a region to gain autonomy.
“Historically, the cost of maintaining unity is raised through military means. Examples of this tactic being successfully employed include the cases of the United States, the Republic of Ireland, and some of the successor states of Yugoslavia.
“But secession and decentralization have also often been achieved through bloodless or near bloodless means. This was the case in Iceland and throughout most of the post-Iron Curtain states.
“Bloodless secession movements, however, only occur when the parent state is weakened by larger events beyond the secession movement itself. Iceland, for example, seceded in 1944, when World War II ensured that Denmark was in no position to object. The post-Soviet states seceded when the Soviet state had been rendered impotent by decades of economic decline and (in 1991) a failed coup. . . . . . ” [I will add that here in America the parent state, federal government, is being weakened by the pandemic, the economic conditions and the lawlessness taking place at this time.]
“It is possible to envision largely “amicable” separations. The model for this is the separation of Canada, Australia, and New Zealand from the the United Kingdom. . . . .”
By typing in secession many links come up. All interesting reads.
Separation is still on the table if Option One, which we will get to soon, does not occur. No one will like either but the two options we have are the only ways to avoid the violence that is brewing. If violence results the worst case scenario will happen in which the country breaks up violently into several sections with massive destruction. That would be much much worse. Basically this is what has been happening on a global scale all throughout human history. In an amicable separation one side and philosophy would prove better than the other and it could be possible for the other side to merge again or at least the sections that wanted to and many would. A violent breakup was predicted by Igor Panarin, a Russian professor and former KGB agent, which I mentioned in an earlier essay. (Look up Igor Panarin in Wikipedia.) He said we would have a civil war and break up into several separate regions due to our “mass immigration, economic decline,” and “moral degradation.” He said it would happen in 2010 which has passed but we are seeing the beginning now and if we do not act it will happen. In his scenario each region would be occupied by a different nation or coalition of nations presumably picked by the UN. China gets the Western coastal states and Russia gets Alaska. The left is pushing these three issues he cited as causes that will bring about the collapse and touting them as positives and are three legs of their platform and agenda. Hating Trump is the fourth leg of their platform. Their hatred is appealing to the intellectually deficient and emotionally unstable, the parasitic, is unfounded and is steering us towards violence and the red must not play into their hands. In the event of large scale violence between two actual opposing philosophies and if in power the Democrats could, and I wouldn’t put it past them, call on the UN for help which will only make a worst case scenario worse. I previously mentioned the possibility of the UN getting involved. In Chicago abc7chicago.com Dec 14, 2017 had an article with the headline that read: “Boykin asks United Nations for help fighting Chicago violence.” It started out: “Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin headed to the United Nations in New York Thursday to ask for help fighting violence in Chicago. There is an article in the New York Times (10/05/2020) titled “America might need international intervention”. Google it. It is not out of the realm of possibilities as we see at least two have already thought of it and others will follow. It is not hard to imagine the mayors and governors of the states and cities going up in flames to call for it. Our military would be assimilated into that peace keeping force. Leftists are like lemmings to the sea.
Having the unconstrained vision they believe the end justifies the means and are purposely being unreasonable to bring about violence and collapse. I discussed the constrained vs the unconstrained vision in Essay 6 part 5. They are backed by George Soros a man that has a God complex. In his book, “The Age of Fallibility”, which I mentioned earlier, he says he thinks America is responsible for the problems of the world. Something our “intellectual” college professors also believe and now a sizable portion of an entire generation does as well. They run around chanting “Death to America” not understanding it is their death too. They are, for the most part useless otherwise they would not be there. Soros writes of wanting to influence the world for the better (at least what he considers better) and admits to actively doing so. Below I have posted a video of an interview with him titled “Is George Soros a sociopath?” In it he admits in his own words by his own mouth some of the unethical things he has unashamedly done. In his book I just mentioned he writes he is getting despondent at his age and at the slow progress of accomplishing his goals which would make him desperate and push to collapse us out of revenge if his victory of an open society is not obtainable within his lifetime. In July of 2020 he donated $220 million to various leftist and communist groups. The bulk of his fortune. $18 billion, went to his foundations. Link below to the article and below that is the video of Soros being asked if he is a sociopath. He is acting with the same principle of a “doomsday machine.” Also there are links in Essay 6 of his hatred for Trump and other aspects of America. If you read his books and look into his organizations you will see that hate and unethical behavior are part of his basic psychology. You might do well to ponder the words of Garak the Kardasian on Star Trek Deep Space 9: “Enemies make dangerous friends.” The Democrats expected collapse but had anticipated being in charge when the system collapsed due to their fiscal irresponsibility, their immigration policies, their destruction of education, their pro crime stances and their encouraging and validating aberrant behavior. After the collapse they would declare martial law with themselves frozen in power. They do not have the intellectual capacity and emotional stability to foresee the consequences to be in charge of anything. If they do they are outright committing treason. Look at any cities they have been in charge of for 30, 40 or 50 years. Look at them. As I just mentioned earlier they say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. More proof the liberals have become insane or are stupid.
The following is a video that reveals exactly who and what George Soros really is. It is an interview with him in which, in his own words, shows the dishonesty he would go to to achieve his ends. This was in the mid 1990s if I remember right. He is speaking. Listen and decide for yourself.
In Essay 10 there is more on Soros in paragraph group 5. Worth looking at.
An interesting read, which I have previously referred to, is “The People Shapers”, by Vance Packard, which has a large section on mind control. It was written in 1977 and the things he discussed were being researched and experimented with for decades prior to the book being written. Also the book is very well documented. As I read the book I began to get very unsettling thoughts and feelings. There is something very unnatural about the some of the left’s thoughts and actions. The positions of the leadership of the Democrats have radically changed in the last couple of decades. The alphabet agencies, CIA, DHS, NSA, FBI and so forth, of the government that actually run the state have access to everyone in government. Remember we discussed the difference between the government and the state in a prior essay. They are two different entities. These people actually hold the power and what are the limits of actions of people that have and relish power? Only what their sense of ethics determine. Those whose faces are the elected government sooner or later have limits placed on them by public opinion. Even dictators hold power by public support. The lifelong bureaucrats do not. I also know that these bureaucrats are necessary and we could not function without them but some in positions of authority have taken a wrong turn. The system is too close to collapse and they will be buried with it in the rubble. Also foreign governments, some of which are hostile to us, have been researching and experimenting with mind control. Scientists are at the point they are capable of removing short term memories before they go into long term memory storage in the brain. If a traumatic event happened to you if they got to you within a short period of time they are working on erasing it and you would have no recollection of it. Link below:
Our news media manipulates us all the time. If you listen to the MSM they all parrot each other and many viewers parrot them just like Shirer’s observations of Nazi Germany. Repetition, repetition, repetition, parrot, parrot, parrot and peer pressure, peer pressure, peer pressure. Go to any college campus and ask a question that questions their programming to get an accurate assessment of their knowledge and emotional stability. They become abusive, combative and/or violent. They live in bubbles of theories and emotions. This has been going on a very long, long, long time. Something is not right and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a Sherlock Holmes to see that. Listen to them. Read the comments on various liberal Facebook pages. It is 1984 becoming reality but their immaturity and inexperience creates arrogance, ignorance, and self-righteousness and does not allow them to see it or to care. To control large numbers of people is a simple task far simpler than going to the Moon. A few media personalities, sports or Hollywood celebrities or college professors can control many. Read “The People Shapers”. (There are some quotes from it in the Books Worth Reading section of this site.) Years ago in one of my favorite science fiction series the author made a statement in the introduction that was quite profound. He said we haven’t gone to the moon in decades but we have made enormous progress in mind control.
Many of the actions of the liberals are prime examples of the principle in psychology known as “the principle of the party of the least interest.” In that principle the party that has the least interest in a relationship controls the relationship. The one with the most interest will go out of their way and bend over backwards to keep the relationship intact or successful while the party with the least interest doesn’t care one way or the other so the effort at unity is on the side that cares. One concession always leads to another unreasonable demand. Often the one with the least interest either consciously or unconsciously sabotages it. The left doesn’t want the nation to be successful so they don’t care and undermine any positive actions by the present administration. Their distractions and distortions are taking on lives of their own. They are verifying my statement this very moment by validating the rioting, arson, looting and murder going on in their cities. They want to defund, or in some cases, completely do away with the police. If the left gains control those on the right better get it through their heads that from that point on they have nothing to lose because what they have they will lose slooooooowly and painfully. The things of value, family, church, police, accurate education are being taken now. The left will be looking for revenge if elected. Read their Facebook comments. I found this on Facebook and I do not know who wrote this but it is very true. Think about what is happening here and now as you read it.
THE DAY THE POLICE WERE NO LONGER NEEDED
On August 19, 1966 – students launched a fight for social justice to fight for the rights of the oppressed in China. The patriarch system in China had been created by the 1% and held down women, minorities, and the working class. The students cried out for a revolution and change. They launched the Cultural Revolution. Students put a red band around their arm to stand in solidarity with the oppressed and called for a change on old ideas that they called the FOUR OLDS. The Four Olds were: Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Ideas.
The movement was supported by the Chinese media
Mass demonstrations and looting by the students ensued.
Statues were torn down
Chinese architecture was destroyed
Classical literature and Chinese paintings were torn apart and burned
Temples were desecrated.
The Cemetery of Confucius was attacked
The corpse of the 76th-generation Duke Yansheng was removed from its grave and hung naked from a tree
Wealthy homes were attacked and destroyed
Many families’ long-kept genealogy books were burned to ashes.
Public leaders who were considered to be oppressive were tried by angry mobs and vigilantes
Three days later, August 22, 1966, a central directive was issued to stop police intervention. The police were disbanded in the city and the students formed a community solution called the RED GUARD. The RED GUARDS policed the communities and punished anyone who did not agree with their ideas. Even people that supported the movement, but had bad thoughts could be punished.
Though many Christians supported the movement in the beginning, they quickly became the number one target of the RED GUARDS and public trials were held to condemn them to death.
Many of those that were on board with the cause of the rebellion in the beginning saw that it was not really what they had signed up for, but by then it was too late. The power that the Red Guard wanted had already been given.
More people died during the cultural revolution in China than any war, famine, or natural disaster in the history of man.
. Remember the predictions by Igor Panarin on civil war and the nation splitting into several separate entities. There is an excellent entry on Igor Panarin in Wikipedia about it worth reading. Hobbes felt that civil war was such a disaster that any form of government would be preferable to it. He may have been wrong as I think the present left in America and the Democrat Party might be worse. Hopefully we will never find out. Below is the link to an article about there will be bloodshed after the election whether Trump wins or loses. In both scenarios it is the actions of the Democrats and left that ignite the fuse to the powder keg. Facebook and Twitter are preparing for unrest and are going to use their platforms to influence the outcome of the election. Remember to them the end justifies the means. I post links so you can read them for your selves or if you don’t want to read them you can just believe me but I recommend reading them. I suggest you read this one. I actually suggest you read them all.
If you read the short article in the above link you can see the prospect of violence is very real. It shows what will happen in the event of a Trump victory or loss. Actually inevitable without Draconian measures. Morris in “The Human Zoo” said he believed we were on the verge of a civil war and his book was written decades ago. The following is a link to a list of anti-Trump violence. It was listed under the title of: “Hundreds of Examples of Anti-Trump Violence Committed by Liberals.” (When this was first written and that exact wording was entered the first several hits that came up were links to articles of Trump supporters causing the violence. I am glad to know it is no longer the case.) The threats against him and his supporters are not isolated incidents and have been going on since his election. This article was published ) October 31, 2018. Since then I know there has been hundreds more.
The following is a piece on the ongoing attacks on Trump that have been relentless. They are out of the playbooks on manipulation of several brutal leftist dictatorships and numerous novels about dystopian futures.
The following, written right after the election before he tlook office, is about the death threats against Trump. Violence, intimidation and threats have increased since the election.
While researching secession (separation) when I thought the red and blue going separate ways was the best first option the number of movements and the amount of sentiment regarding autonomy and secession globally surprised me. It has happened to numerous countries in the past and a search came up with two good lists, both from the site Quora, of recent or present movements. I have listed them and the authors below (some overlapping though) and then I posted a list I comprised from Wikipedia.
Raunak Kumar Singh [Author], MA English from Central University of Rajasthan
Assuming that we are taking the India-Pakistan division as the reference point to look at the countries which later got separated or divided. Going before that time would mean looking at the rise and fall of hundreds of empires over thousands of years.
Pakistan and Bangladesh
North Vietnam and South Vietnam. They were however unified after the war.
North Korea and South Korea
Israel and Palestine. However, Palestine’s existence as a separate state is debatable at times.
Sudan and South Sudan
Etiophia and Eriteria
Czech Republic and Slovakia
Disintegration of Yugoslavia
Disintegration of Soviet Union
Bharath Kumar,[Author] lives in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India
Bangladesh was also got split from India.
Dissolution of Soviet Union into 15 countries.
Singapore was one of the 14 states of Malaysia from 1963 to 1965 and got separated because racial and other tensions.
Alaska Once a part of Russia was Purchased by USA.
Korea got divided after WW2, north supported by Russia and South supported by USA.
Germany after WW2 and zone of occupation integrated to form more or less two sovereign States.
Brexit from European Union to form borders soon.
Scotland may get opt to exit from UK.
Globally autonomous and secessionist movements, to some degree or another, and to some degree of seriousness or another, are in:
Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Venezuela, Australia, Federated states of Micronesia, Indonesia, Kiribati, New Zealand, Papua, Vanuatu, Canada, Mexico, United States, Nicaragua, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Kosovo, Lithuania, Moldova, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Bangladesh, China, India, Iran, Iraq, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Syria, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Yemen, Algeria, Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Comoros, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Libya, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. (Comprised from Wikipedia)
Separation has been discussed and/or is being looked at within several states at present. There are some counties in Colorado that are looking to secede from the state and go independent. Some counties in Virginia are looking into the prospect of leaving Virginia and becoming part of West Virginia. There has been talk in some red California counties of separating from the blue counties. In the eastern red sections of both Washington and Oregon there have been some advocating the red areas seceding from the western blue areas. It is always along the rural versus urban area lines. (Reference the maps above.)
Not all secession or separation talk has been from the right. A Google search of “secession” or “red blue secession” brings up numerous pages where the blue are advocating it. There are advocates for a nation named Cascadia which would be secession of Oregon, Washington and possibly Montana, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming and the Yukon and British Columbia. There have been several versions in which the territories vary. such as some include California and some eliminate others. There is also talk of if Trump wins the election and the Democrats can’t snatch it back by hook or crook that California, Oregon and Washington secede until Trump is removed and certain concessions made from the rest of the states. Concessions that will ensure one party rule forever. There are three flaws to that they can’t see which will become apparent if it happens. It would actually benefit the rest of the country. Let them go. (There was a movement trying to get California by itself to secede but it hit a bump in the road when the leader was found to be living in Russia and decided to make his permanent home in Russia. He seceded all by himself.)
The left wants to abolish the electoral college which would allow densely populated areas to dominate the rural. The above maps show that is possible. Actually reality. They want to give D.C. statehood. They want to give Puerto Rico statehood. That would be 4 additional votes in the Senate which would mean one party rule regardless of elections. They want to import voters to vote illegally. They want to let 16 year olds vote. They want people in prison to vote. They want to have a free for all with mail in voting which only a fool will tell you is not subject to fraud. See Essay 9A It consists of links about mail in ballot fraud. They have no way of knowing who is voting. They are proposing mailing ballots to the addresses of all registered voters not knowing if they have moved or have died. so without knowing who is getting them. There is a difference between requested absentee ballots and ballots sent out in mass mailings to every voter on the roles. Some may have moved and some may have died. Mail in voting would be riddled with corruption especially in the confusion associated with large metropolitan areas. The heavily populated areas would be able to outvote the citizens of rural areas and dictate to them. Look again at the maps above. Democrats keep harping on the absentee ballots that are being cast and used Florida as an example saying Trump is voting by mail. He is voting by mail by absentee.
There is a difference as to the way Florida does voting by mail versus the way the Democrats want it done. In Florida you have to request an absentee ballot as the Democrats want it done they just mail ballots to everyone on the voter roles. The following is a link explaining what Nevada wants to do. If the Democrats win in November it will be because of their dishonest, unethical tactics. That would make it all the more necessary secession would be a viable option. If they win the results should be closely scrutinized due to Democrat manipulation and fraud. The military has to also be assessing the turmoil in the US now. At least I would hope.
. Get your ballots like the weekly super market ads you get in your mail. What could go wrong?
Projections are that 82% of the US population will live in urban areas by 2050. National Geographic defines urban as: “In the United States, settlements with 2,500 inhabitants or more are defined as urban.” Even though they consider urban to be only 2,500 or more, which many believe is too low a number to be considered urban, the major metropolises of over a million will dominate and dictate. The top ten metropolitan areas in the US have a total of 84 million people as of 2016. (An interesting note. I lived in a small rural southern county where the black and white populations were about equal numbers. I have also lived in large cities and have found that blacks and whites in rural areas have more in common with each other than with their counterparts in large cities. Especially if religion plays a large part in their lives and communities.)
Another issue is the Democrats and elites have been preparing for widespread violence if Trump wins as I briefly mentioned above. The Democrats have already started laying the ground work for a long drawn out ballot counting process while it gives them time to “find” lost ballots. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has said he is going to prepare Facebook to help spread word that it is normal for an election to drag out for weeks. It is not normal. Obviously he is in on it too. He is spreading lies and they are believed because of who he is. He also donated millions of dollars too. Here is the link:
Autonomy is the right of self-government often within the borders of an existing country but not necessarily. What we in the United States call “States Rights” could be viewed as a type of autonomy but it is limited by some federal power. Secession is formally withdrawing from a nation. There is a difference. True autonomy would not work with the United States. The right feels government should be small and the left envisions a 1984 type government with them as Big Brother but they don’t see it as repression. Big brother says “Freedom Is Slavery.” Their heavy-handed, unnecessary, unreasonable dictatorial reactions and the turn in your neighbor for mowing his lawn and the shutting of businesses down for months forcing many out of business type policies they enacted during the coronavirus pandemic should confirm that. More proof would be forbidding church services but allowing riots that mesh with their ideology. While these actions are vividly apparent for what they are to any reasonable observer they are seen as noble and necessary acts of heroism to leftists swallowing the same convoluted narratives of the Party in 1984: War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery and Ignorance is Strength. We could add “betrayal is loyalty.” to their convoluted list. The left has been programmed not to see it. There was a hypnotist that hypnotized people to not see or recognize the number seven (7). These were reasonably intelligent people and when hypnotized and given a column of figures to add with a seven in it could not add them correctly. Always off by seven. When told to count their fingers they went: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11. They knew they had 10 fingers but always counted to 11 omitting the 7. When confronted their minds just went tilt trying to understand. You could tell by the bewildered looks on their faces wondering why they counted 11 when they knew they only have 10 fingers. Look up the potentials and effectiveness and methods of applying hypnotism in The People Shapers by Vance Packard in the Books Worth Reading section of this site.
Also various groups such as Muslims would go for autonomy to gain control of a region as they are doing now. Their goal is global domination. It is a basic core belief of their religion. There is a clamor for the acceptance of Sharia law within some Muslim communities now. The call to prayer is taking place in an increasing number of cities. Some are demanding employers give them time off during the day to pray often disrupting the facility. Look at pictures of cities with large numbers of Muslims in both Europe and the United States and there are pictures of them blocking traffic while praying. There was a picture going around of them praying in an airliner aisle. They cheered in some American cities when the Trade Center Towers were destroyed. The left says it did not happen but I saw them cheering on TV. I saw the news clip. There are numerous videos of them publicly calling for violence against the US government. I do not hate Muslims it is the fact they do not assimilate and want the country to assimilate into them that I oppose. I admit not all but moderate Muslims are outnumbered by the fanatics. The Christian Church had its problems but there was a Reformation that challenged policies of the Church and brought about a more humane church. I do not see a serious Reformation movement within Islam with the exception from some living in Western nations and they are persecuted by the hard-liners or by Western nation leftists. The technology and shear numbers of people make a Reformation very difficult at best. These leftists are so mentally deficient they fail to understand if Islam becomes a majority they will become some of the first to be eliminated. Muslims hate atheists and the immoral Westerners. The radicals are holding the moderates in thrall. There are moderates and they should be given considerations for refugee status but they must assimilate. They can still have their religion as that is part of freedom. Below are links to some articles on Muslims forming their own patrols within their neighborhoods here in the U.S.. These go beyond citizens watches and patrols..
The link below is in their own words:
Rome suffered the fate of letting various groups into the empire and allowing them to form autonomous enclaves. Ramsey McMullen in “Corruption and the Decline of Rome” stated: “From Hadrianople, the victorious Goths, soon joined by other barbarian immigrant groups, turned to further pillage. They were quite unopposed. …… They received lands in Moesia and Pannonia on the condition that they would respond to conscription when needed. Others, by a far different arrangement of October 3, 382, were scattered over a region in Thrace to live there under their own laws and rulers. They had attained something they might truly call Gothia inside the empire.” This was within the borders of the empire and the author also wrote: “Notoriously, before the century was over, barbarian commanders of essentially barbarian armies had gained control of the empire’s fate, in civil wars and armed rampages around Asia Minor, Greece, the Balkans, or Italy. Tens of thousands resided permanently within the borders. The sack of Rome itself was a purely domestic affair.” Meaning, of course, those they let in or brought in sacked the empire. The barbarians that sacked Rome and the empire actually had a better lifestyle and higher standard of living before the sack. The structure and unified state had more stability and security. Once those qualities dropped below a certain point collapse and violence become inevitable. We are close to that level now. Sacking can come in more than one form. Overloading the social services system to bring on economic collapse would be one such way. Of course releasing criminals and being heedless of reality helps too. Ignoring and condoning massive violence is another way. Bringing in a culture that wants to destroy ours and impose their own is another. I have no problem with others coming in but they must follow our rules and adapt to our culture. There is an old saying “When in Rome do as the Romans do.” Too bad that was not the policy in ancient Rome. When a culture no longer requires that immigrants assimilate they are on the way out. Encouraging, supporting and validating rioting and looting as many Democrat officials do pours gasoline on the fire. History repeats itself. I wonder what ghe military thinks of this situation.
The following is a link to a video of CAIR, Council on American Islamic Relations calling for them to join BLM in revolution against America followed by two quotes. The first from the site truthuncensored.net and the second from the video by a Muslim speaker.
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. based pro-Muslim group that enjoys close ties with President Obama, announced they are joining with #BlackLivesMatter and calling for a revolution in the United States and they plan on using this upcoming election to do so.
“Black Lives Matter… Basically you [Muslims] are the new black people of America, you are being denied rights, you are being denied the American Dream… If we don’t stand, you will see Muslims murdered in the streets. We are the community that staged a revolution around the world.. why can’t we do that in America?”
“I believe we have at least 1 million Muslim eligible voters in this country. We have to register every single Muslim to vote in 2016. The Muslim vote can be the swing vote in major states,” CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad said at the Muslim American Society (MAS) and Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) annual conference in Chicago.
It is hard to believe we are this stupid.
They talk about denied rights. What rights do they have in Muslim nations? As far as Black Lives Matter in the thousand years of African slavery Muslims enslaved 20,000,000 blacks and murdered 80,000,000 getting those 20,000,000 to the final destination. Murder is an accurate description. They dragged them across the desert and if they became too weak to continue and fell they left them to die in the desert. Women and children were the majority of those that perished on the grueling trip. They castrated many young males between 6 and 10 years old to be harem attendants. The American Dream is what they hate. They did not have the rights to build it in their nations so they came here and when it was not just given to them they began claiming Islaophobia and seek to destroy or steal it. They lack the wherewithal for various reasons to build it os in rage they seek to destroy it. They could not build it because Western civilization is not in their psychology or religion. CAIR and the BLM and antifas and liberal supporters in government and universities cater to people that are intellectually incapable of designing anything, building anything, maintaining anything or repairing anything already built. They are only capable of destroying. After the collapse the inhabitants of what was the Roman Empire lived among the ruins they could neither build, maintain or repair.. They also lack the emotional stability, the imagination and the industriousness to create. American leftists, and leftists in general, are parasites living off the past industriousness and inventiveness of others. Like all parasites they fail to understand when the host dies so do the parasites. Ten parasites can live off a hundred productive workers but a hundred parasites can not be supported by ten productive workers. They will find that out if the red and blue go their separate ways. At that point they, some anyway, will be able to be rejoined and reintegrated.
Davos is a town in Switzerland that hosts the annual WEF, (World Economic Forum), that global political and business elites attend to discuss world problems that affect the globe: economic, environmental, terrorism, global warming, politics etc. I am not opposed to elites meeting as they obviously have the intelligence and are in positions to do things that need to be done that politicians are not in a position to do. The reason politicians aren’t is because they have to cater to the mob. My problem is that often intellectuals gain their ear and there is nothing as stupid and lacking sense as a liberal, college educated intellectual. That is a fact. They live in a world of theories about how to make a perfect world. Their theories make a lot of the harebrained conspiracy theories look sane and sound. Here is what they have planned for you. Not for themselves of course. Soros is part of the Davos crowd. This is what the ultimate end of the Soros and leftist agenda will be. As you watch think of the fact the urban areas differ from the rural in a number of things one is rural areas have wells while urban areas have city water. Think about that.
In the video it speaks of basically two societies with separate philosophies. One consists of the cities and the other the rural areas were people are still individuals. It is a no-brainer to realize which one is red and which one is blue. People are so equal they all own nothing. Nothing!!!! Not even the clothes you wear are yours. Your home isn’t yours. There also would be no place for children or pets if you analyze the set up and think about it. Children must be born in some birth type factories like the Borg collective on Star Trek or some other futuristic design. As you could see from the video the individual was being replaced with the collective. Many scifi stories have that theme. In many scifi stories pets have no place in a brave new socialist world. Throwback to decadence and ostentatious display of capitalist values. Think it won’t happen? Type into a search bar the following: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly condemns pet ownership as a ‘decadence’ and orders dogs be confiscated. It is from Business Insider Aug 18, 2020. There are two theories floating around about it. The first is just what it says. The second is they are falling behind in food production and dogs are being picked up for food. Also keep in mind today in socialist Venezuela they are eating their pets and zoo animals.
Another excellent book is “Anthem” by Ayn Rand. In it the main character always refers to himself as “we” or “us” or “our” never I or me or my. That makes it a little difficult to follow at times but it is a good look at the future these intellectuals have in store for us. They are discussing these theories now. They live in theoretical worlds where the rules do not apply to them and they have no consequences of being wrong. They look at us as little more than guinea pigs. Something they don’t consider in their bizarre fantasies are disasters. The city people would have no way of coping with a disaster either natural or man made. They would perish as they would not know what to do. Country folk would chip in and work together. It is doubtful the “superior city slickers? would know how to work a screwdriver.
If the red and blue separated the red could maintain records of the past as the blue would be altering history and meanings of words. To avoid repeating past mistakes you need to know the past accurately. They can’t see it but most of us can see there would be a loss of incentive and innovation. Which society would business be better off in? Which side would the military be better off in? Can you imagine what will happen to the military if the above cities were in charge? What about NASA? Who grows their food? These people have not understood the simple premise that “Everyone’s responsibility is no ones responsibility.” I will get into why businesses would be receptive to the red areas later but keep this video in mind as to why businesses would be willing to relocate to red areas from blue. The residents of blue areas would have no sense of responsibility. To me this would be a form of captivity. We are all dependent on others to some extent so none of us is totally free but we have struck a happy medium and balance weighing one thing against another. The first pilot episode of Star Trek titled “The Cage” had some of the crew of the Enterprise kidnapped and placed in a setting where everything was provided for them but they were confined to a certain area. When they realized there was no escape they were going to commit suicide. The species that captured them accessed human history and let them go saying: “The history and customs of your species shows a unique hatred of captivity. Even when it is benevolent and pleasant you prefer death.”
Folks we better wake up. Christians of any race or culture should be concerned. The Black community in particular should be and they should read about the history of the Muslim’s slave trade to the Middle East beginning several hundred years before the Atlantic slave trade did. Not only did it begin long before the Atlantic trade it ended well after the Atlantic trade ended only because of pressure from the Christian West. It was “The Dictionary of Afro- American Slavery” that said the number taken to Islamic nations over the thousand years of their involvement in the slave trade was one hundred million. The mortality rate was a staggering 80%. That is eighty million. The total taken across the Atlantic was about twelve milion of which about five percent came to the United States. (Around six hundred thousand.) Note the reason slavery ended in Western civilization was due to the Christian churches opposition to it. More and more Christians found the concept of one human being owning another did not reconcile with their religion. The Christian West was responsible for eliminating slavery in the Western world which CAIR and BLM want to destroy. It is a given that the vast majority, probably 95%, of the BLM/antifa protestors of any race or sex do not have the intellectual capacity or the necessary attention span to read the above book.
The Democrat’s tactics are to break the bank to bring financial ruin to collapse the system and blame it on the rich, business, the GOP. the military and now toss in the police for good measure. They have politicized a pandemic and have fomented rioting, looting and murder. Remember the quotes about the positions of the Haves and Have-nots by Hoppe and Wells in previous essays. The coronavirus bills the Democrats have written have large sums of money going to their pet projects that have absolutely nothing to do with the virus. These bills are preposterous. The “Take Responsibility for Workers and Families Act” was 1500 pages and the latest dubbed the HEROES Act is 1815 pages with 347,000 words. Again and again I ask are we really that stupid? They act as though these ponderous documents were just recently written for the virus and not planned a long time ago. If they were just written they were thrown together in haste without thought to consequences. I find it a stroke of luck for the Democrats the virus hit. They can use the virus to leverage their unrealistic demands and blame it on realists when it doesn’t pass. These add about 8 trillion dollars on the already astronomical national debt that we will never be able to pay off. That is described by such idioms as: “The straw that broke the camel’s back” and “the doubloon that sank the ship.” When the camel’s back breaks or the ship sinks remember which party tossed the last straw or final doubloon-the Democrats. They want the system to collapse because in chaos and social problems they thrive. They are also “stuffing the ballot boxes” by enfranchising many, via DMV licensing (motor voter) backdoor voter registration tactics, that are basically either social burdens or lack understanding of democracy and have nothing to lose and everything to gain. In other words they have no skin in the game and want some of yours. The Democrats are also using Strategic Engineered Migration in conjunction with the Cloward-Piven Stratagy. I gave the definition of the last two tactics in earlier essays. To save you looking them up I will do a quick partial recap of them.
The Cloward-Piven Stratagy:
From Wikipedia: “The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a socialist system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty” “
“The authors pinned their hopes on creating disruption within the Democratic Party.”
Strategic Engineered Migration:
From Strategic Engineered Migration as a Weapon of War by Kelly M. Greenhall “Strategic engineered migration refers to those in-or out-migrations as those deliberately induced or manipulated by state or non-state actors, in ways to augment, reduce, or change the composition of the population residing within a particular territory, for political or military ends.”
Again I ask are we really this stupid? Apparently.
Importing Muslims into the United States is a recipe for disaster. It has been for Europe. One of several Trojan horses that we stupidly took in. Their philosophy calls for global domination and subjugation or executing non-Muslims. The sermons and harangues of their religious leaders and the rantings, babblings and actions of Muslims in our government verify that. They express it and make no qualms about it. Liberals don’t even care. Point it out to liberals and you become the villain and are insulted or assaulted. Muslims are culturally incompatible with Western values. I understand and know there are moderate Muslims but they are held in fear of the hardliners. The majority that are flooding Europe and the U.S. are males between late teens to the mid to upper thirties. This is by design and the nature of the beast. In Islam a man may have up to four wives if he can support them. What that boils down to is 100% of the women could belong to 25% of the men. This is of course not the case in reality but under their system it is possible and it makes the point that there are many Muslim males that do not have a chance to have a wife and family. Males in that age bracket of any race, religion or culture tend to be less stable and the cause of many foolish, immature and violent actions. In other words they cause trouble. The governments of Muslim nations find it better for them if the males of that age were somewhere else and there seems to be only one culture, Western, that is too stupid to see long term consequences. Liberals also do not learn from the past. Castro in Cuba emptied his jails, prisons and mental institutions and sent them to the United States. President Jimmy Carter, being a liberal, ignored or was oblivious to it. Having criminals and crazies dropped in their midst created many serious issues for the responsible and respectable Cuban community. China understands the Muslim danger and has one million Muslims in mental institutions. Muslims are a Trojan Horse. Muslims are not compatible with any group other than Muslims and they don’t even get along with themselves. Of course the Christians had the same problem throughout history I must say in the interest of fairness. In the lifetimes of many alive today there are memories of the Protestants of Britain and the Catholics of Ireland doing a great job of killing each other. Any group wishing to enter is welcome on a case by case basis and they must assimilate.
Seymour W, Itzkoff in The Decline of Intelligence in America quoted George F. Kennan on immigration:
“We also ought to ask ourselves, before we assure ourselves that we could comfortably accommodate further waves of immigration, where, if anywhere, the limits of this complacency are to be found. This is a big world. Billions – rapidly increasing billions – of people live outside our borders. Obviously, a great number of them, being much poorer than they think most of us are, look enviously over those borders and would like, if they could to come here . . .
“. . . . The possibility has never become apparent to us that in some instances, where the disparity between what these people were leaving behind and what they were coming into was too great, the new arrivals, even in the process of adjusting to our political tradition, actually change it. One need only look at our great-city ghettos or the cities of Miami and Los Angeles to satisfy oneself that what we are confronted with here are real and extensive cultural changes . . .
“Just as water seeks its own level, so relative prosperity, anywhere in the world, tends to suck in poverty from adjacent regions to the lowest levels of employment. But since poverty is sometimes a habit, sometimes even an established way of life, the more prosperous society, by indulging this tendency, absorbs not only poverty into itself but other cultures in the bargain, it is sometimes quite overcome, in the long run, by what it is trying to absorb.”
This is what is happening now. The Democrats are engineering this in order to politically enfranchise them with the “open borders” policies they promote. It started with President Lyndon Johnson with his immigration reform policy. This policy allowed anyone, even with no useful skills, to come in and bring their family before they could support them, and guess who supported them? The answer is the people here that actually provide a good or service to the country and pay the bills. The Democrats are now using it by appealing to the emotions of those U.S. citizens motivated by emotions rather than reason and intelligent thinking. The idea is to overload the social services systems as in the Cloward-Piven Strategy and to pack the voter roles. This strategy was concocted at the same time the Democrats changed the immigration policies to facilitate this strategy. These refugees and immigrants are coming from third world nations mainly in Central and South Americas, Africa and the Middle East. Those most likely to need public assistance.
The United States has taken in refugees and immigrants from all over the world. They come for freedom and to better themselves. Many were in abject poverty without adequate food and other basic necessities. Keep in mind the majority came to get and human nature being what it is if not regulated will take the path of least resistance which is to become public wards weakening an already over burdened system. The problem with immigration is many do not assimilate. A culture is successful when everyone pulls their own weight. In order for people to pull their own weight smoothly and efficiently they need to speak a common language. Adequate communication is such a basic component to a cohesive society it is beyond the ability of a normal person to understand why some don’t understand the need. Also a standardized education is another basic component. Everyone has to be on the same page. Here are a few thoughts on immigration from Robert D. Kaplan’s “The Coming Anarchy”:
“. . . . as refugee flows increase, and as peasants continue migrating to cities around the world – turning them into sprawling villages – national borders will mean less, even as more power will fall into the hands of the less educated, less sophisticated groups. In the eyes of these uneducated, but newly empowered millions, the real borders are the most tangible and intractable ones: those of culture and tribe. . . . .Consider that Indian cities, like African and Chinese ones, are ecological time bombs –Delhi and Calcutta, and also Beijing, suffer the worst air quality of any cities in the world –and it is apparent how surging populations, environmental degradation, and ethnic conflict, are deeply related.
“. . . . Whatever the laws, refugees find a way to crash official borders, bringing their passions with them, meaning that Europe and the United States will be weakened by cultural disputes.”
“. . . In Brazil and other countries democracy faces a backlash from millions of badly educated and newly urbanized dwellers in teeming slums, who see few palpable benefits to Western parliamentary systems. Their discontent is the reason for the multifold increases in crime in many Latin American cities over the past decade.
“Because both a middle-class and civil institutions are required for successful democracy, Democratic Russia, which inherited neither from the Soviet regime, remains violent, unstable, and miserably poor despite its 99% literacy rate. Under its authoritarian system China has dramatically improved the quality of life for hundreds of millions of its people. . . . .”
Steven Pinker in “The Blank Slate” wrote about the dangers of bringing in people from outside:
“Beginning with Ashley Montagu in 1952, thinkers with collectivist sympathies have tried to eke out a place for unmeasured generosity by invoking group selection, a Darwinian competition among groups of organisms rather than among individual organisms. The hope is that groups whose members sacrifice their interests for the common good will out compete those in which every man is for himself, and as a result generous impulses will come to prevail in the species. Williams dashed the dream in 1966 when he pointed out that unless a group is genetically fixed and hermetically sealed, mutants or immigrants constantly infiltrate it. A selfish infiltrator would soon take over the group with its descendants, who are more numerous because they have reaped the advantages of others’ sacrifices without making their own. This would happen long before the group could parlay its internal cohesion into victory over neighboring groups and bud off new offspring groups to repeat the process.”
The left is too emotional and intellectually deficient to understand that a culture is what determines a society’s economic success. While many are college educated they do not have the maturity or experience to properly assess things. One such group is liberal, college educated, millennial white women. They live in an unreal “paper doll world” bubble of fantasy and emotion. If you don’t believe it go to a Black Lives Matter demonstration or a college campus and ask a question that challenges their beliefs or mention you think Trump is a great president. Ask how many biological sexes there are. They are being indoctrinated by egghead professors that consider themselves intellectuals and superior. They can be intelligent in some areas or in some ways but are still fools because they can’t think. The ability to memorize formulas and facts does not necessarily make a person smart no more than encyclopedias or computers are smart. Smart people can do what computers can’t do: think abstractly and use instinct and intuition. Instincts and intuitions acquired over millions of years and passed down at birth as a psychological inheritance. Instincts and intuitions that have been stunted by technology and programming in schools and a rapidly increasing population that requires more and more rigid structure to maintain and reduces the need for independent thinking..
Here a couple of examples of thinking. They are both apocryphal of course but they are excellent examples of the essence of thinking. I toss them in for a chuckle and to make a point.
When Einstein was doing lecture tours his chauffeur was always the same driver. On one trip his chauffeur commented “I have heard your presentation so many times I could recite it from memory.” Einstein being a bit of a prankster told him when we get to the lecture you give the lecture as me and I will pretend to be the chauffeur. The chauffeur gave the presentation flawlessly and all went fine but then came the question and answer segment. One member of the audience asked a technical question. The chauffeur acting as Einstein said: “That is a very simple question to answer. It is so simple I am surprised you asked it. In fact to show you how simple it is I am going to let my chauffeur answer it.”
Back in the Middle Ages a man stood in front of the king for some crime and was sentenced to death. The man said “Your majesty if you spare my life in one year I will teach the king’s horse to talk.” The king granted his request. Every day for a year the man went to the pasture and worked with the horse. After a year the king went to hear the horse talk. The man told the king the horse could not talk. The king then asked “Why did you tell me you could teach the horse to talk in a year if I spared your life?” The man replied: “Your majesty I figured a lot could happen in a year. I might die. The king might die. The horse might die. And, who knows but I might have been able to teach it to talk.”
While both are jokes they do show examples of what would be considered quick, independent thinking. Thinking is a difficult thing to teach. It has been replaced with indoctrination telling students and citizens what to think not how to think. This represents a stagnant culture or society. Stagnant cultures and societies collapse or are conquered or do not advance. An excellent example was when China closed its borders in the 15th century AD. It was in part an economic decision because the ocean going fleets sent out did not bring back enough to justify the expense and also the Emperor was concerned about foreign influence corrupting the society. Although the Chinese are quite intelligent and innovative those qualities were opposed and suppressed by isolation. The Chinese invented gunpowder but Europeans invented guns. Another example is the Catholic church of the Middle Ages. It allowed no deviation in thought and was weakened because of it which allowed the Reformation to shatter its dominance. Dogma has its place but so does questioning. Once questioning is berated and stifled progress is stifled . This is and has been the failure of liberalism all through history. They question others but eventually establish unquestioning dogma toward their beliefs and persecute heretics. This is plainly visible in the leftist movements in the West today. Plain to all except themselves. They also attempt change too rapid or change that is impossible undermining themselves. Another example of Luther’s drunken peasant I have discussed.
Divide and conquer is also an age old tactic maybe the oldest in the book. At this time riots are going on in some major US cities because of the death of George Floyd while in custody of Minneapolis Police. Floyd, an African-American male, died of asphyxiation while in police custody due to an officer kneeling on his neck. Although not being an upstanding citizen Floyd was made into a martyr due to what he was and the way he died. While a burden in life he became a martyr in death. The same the Nazis did with Horst Wessel. (Soros must have learned well from his past association with Nazis in Germany during the war.) There are people that would be better martyrs. I am not saying that his death was excusable because it wasn’t. The hold used by the officer was definitely wrong, you don’t cut off someone’s airway, and the officer should be held accountable. The rioting, arson and looting that resulted was total anarchy but orchestrated. The violence and rioting had nothing to do with Floyd. It was an orchestrated event to help destroy the United States. The protestors are merely useful idiots pulled from the ranks of parasites and college indoctrinated millennials that are emotionally unstable and intellectually deficient and actually useless to society with very little of a positive nature to contribute. It is being brought to light that many rioters are from out of the areas of violence. They are not local but are “imported” in from other areas. It is a well known fact George Soros, (His name pops up often.) the billionaire activist with an agenda has often brought in outsiders to “protest” at various times and paid them. He also supports underhanded means which I discussed previously. He also supports the pro-violence antifa and he is of the philosophy of the end justifies the means. If you viewed the video of a few paragraphs ago you know his character. He is no different than those he opposes.
The Democrats are giddy over the pandemic and violence and lock down as well as the disrupted, sagging economy and disrupted educational system as a means to defeat Trump. They are milking and exacerbating the pandemic and recession for political ends. They are keeping the economic downturn alive in order to defeat Trump. Disease, violence and a recession are acceptable tactics for them and their words verify that. They are spiritual brethren of the capitalists they hate. Extract every bit of profit, or gain, out of something regardless of long term cost. Minneapolis has had almost 200 buildings set on fire and burned to the ground including a police precinct station. An interesting fact is there have been pallets of bricks left at places where the demonstrations are to happen. No construction near so why are the bricks there? The Democrats are accusing the right of course. Seattle has 6 blocks of the city including businesses, a park and a police precinct station occupied by people that, to be unkind but truthful, are useless and burdens on society. Some are mentally ill but the left has no problem exploiting them. The Democrat mayor flippantly says the place is a “summer of love.” A summer of love with rapes and murders. The police have taken back the area occupied and one article on the Steve Sanchez Show site had the headline “Mayor Jenny Durkan’s Summer Of Love Ends With A Body Count.” There is no low the left will not stoop to. A party that condones and encourages that, which the Democrats do, cannot be allowed to regain control. If they do and the first choice which I will go into in the next essay is not utilized the option of secession will be the only option at that point. Their hatred is too great to allow the level of power they will have. Watch some of the videos of college students and the protests.
Although it’s like describing the entire universe by comparing it to only 2 atoms the splitting into two nations, red and blue, in overly simplistic but accurate terms would be of two people going their separate ways in a domestic break up. I am not ruling out a future reconciliation though. As it is now if the two areas stay together there will be violence as I said because the views are too radically different and incompatible to ever reach agreement. If in control the Democrats will be the abusive spouse. In a divorce they would be the spouse that stalks and harasses and files false complaints. We have seen numerous false complaints in the last three and a half years. The Democrats and leftists have repeated the lies that Trump and his supporters are racists, homophobes, sexists, and on and on. They parrot each other with no basis of reality. Horace Mann said: “If an idiot were to tell you the same story every day for a year, you would believe it.” There was an explanation on the site Quora. Quora is an extremely interesting and informative site with an intelligent discourse of ideas. Check it out sometime. The phenomena of believing something through repetition had an excellent explanation of it by Pooja Shah:
“Basically human mind is responsive to repetition . You memorize anything and believe by repetition. This technique or skill to convince someone to believe in you. But Belief is always temporary and trust is permanent.
“If you tell same lie every day people will start believing you and it will become truth. . . . . “
“. . . . . it’s human psychology that repetition always help a person to believe , whatever any stupidity or lie or truth. . . . “
We have also seen harassment of those who are merely supporters of conservative philosophy. In previous essays I’ve mentioned several times the odds favored a system collapse. Too many conflicting things are reaching a common collision point at the same time. The coronavirus and resulting recession have increased those odds placing us in the position of having one foot in the grave. The rioting, looting and arson have put a banana peel under the other foot. The pandemic itself won’t collapse us but the resulting economic disaster will. An economic disaster given a kick by the rioting and burning down of businesses which they encouraged. The entire world is structured on a highly interdependent and highly complex system of economics and the coronavirus has radically affected it. The Democrats are trying to exacerbate it for political means. Remember I do not absolve the GOP from blame either it is just the Democrats are the most emotionally motivated and unstable at this time.
The reality is something most people deny or ignore and that is even if we escape massive deaths in this pandemic in the future there will be a global pandemic the scale of the Black Death that ravaged Europe in the Middle Ages and killed about 50% of the population. It is a 100% inevitable, guaranteed, easily predictable event. The present pandemic is a good trial run for it. Always try to turn setbacks or defeat into progress or victory. I also said a couple of times that we were heading for not just a national collapse but a global collapse which we just averted but if humanity runs true to form we will not learn anything. The United States, with its sensationalist news media, has panicked and created a condition of near hysteria in many. I’m not saying the coronavirus pandemic is not dangerous because any pandemic is, or has the potential to be, but panic only makes an already bad situation worse. The experts waver back and forth with recommendations and assessments and statistics usually contradictory from day to day and the media plays them to the max. When news becomes a business that does not care about truth, and actually profits from the toxic waste it generates, integrity suffers. The song “Dirty Laundry” is accurate. Some of the lyrics go:
“We got the bubble-headed-bleach-blond Who comes on at five,
She can tell you ’bout the plane crash with a gleam in her eye,
It’s interesting when people die,
Give us dirty laundry.”
We better get a grip on things and regain control because we have some tough decisions to make as pandemics are going to become more and more frequent and more and more deadly as the global population increases. It hinges on the population a subject no one wants to touch. Plagues always mushroom in densely populated urban areas. I bring this up because the mismanagement of cities by Democrats have created pockets all over the country of witches cauldrons of disease germinating conditions. This is actually a global condition of cities so some serious analysis is called for before the next pandemic hits. Also large urban areas usually have or are close to international airports. An urban area reaches a high point of prosperity then usually starts to decline or deteriorate from social problems that urban areas are certain to produce. It can be described with the economics “Law of Diminishing Returns.” The overcrowded and unsanitary conditions are petri dishes for germs. China is a good example as historically many plagues originated in China. In 165 CE, (AD for us old folks), Roman soldiers picked up the disease known as the Antonine Plague during one of their campaigns and brought it to Rome. It is believed to have originated in China and spread westward by way of the Silk Road and trading ships to the area of the Middle East then to Rome. The Bubonic Plague had the same origin and took the same path. Everyone knows, or should know, the yearly flu shots we get are developed by identifying the flu in China and developing a vaccine and vaccinating the population ahead of its arrival. There is no reason why they couldn’t have done the same for the coronavirus except China kept it under wraps and it is working to the advantage of the Chinese, the Democrats, the UN and the globalists. Even if it was radically different we would have at least had a couple extra months to research it putting us ahead of where we are now. Frightened, panicked people are easy to control. By thinking ahead things can be either prevented or minimized. We should use the coronaviruis as a drill. Plagues have happened numerous times in the past and will happen in the future. This is an opportunity to plan ahead and prepare. Liberals claim Trump dropped the ball but it was them. Trump’s response may not have been perfect as we were in uncharted territory with some unique aspects of this virus but it was far better than their flippant responses were and would have been if they were in the drivers seat. Trump stopped flights from China while the Democrats were accusing him of racism and overreacting a month later and telling people to socialize and go out to Chinatown. Being a separate entity from the blue states and counties would give red areas a distinct advantage of being able to rationally assess a situation, any situation, and act reasonably and rationally omitting the emotional panic of the blue areas. Also the advantage of avoiding the one thing that is the most deadly in any disaster whether man or nature made: our fellow human creatures. The following is an addition since the original Essay. Also China just announced it has a new swine flu with pandemic potential that could be worse than the H1N1 in the recent past. Also July 06/2020 health.com has a story the headline reads “China Issues an Alert About Bubonic Plague.” Wonderful.
(Added) There is now another book by another anti Trumper to add to the pile of “hope to be rich by disparaging Trump” anti Trumper crowd during their 15 minutes of fame. This one claims Trump knew the virus was dangerous but downplayed it. This was logical as to panic people, before much was known, would have been worse. To go off half cocked and panic people without knowing details would be irresponsible. I had a lesson about a person in charge remaining in control while on a 40 foot sailboat going to Nassau in the Bahamas. Pulling into port at night in windy conditions and maneuvering a single prop boat in a tight marina is not a job for the inexperienced and tough even for experienced sailors. There were three of us on the boat; the captain, me and one other. Under diesel power the captain maneuvered the boat between the pilings in a tight area. The wind was blowing fairly strong and there was only one chance to do it right without crashing into other boats. The captain very calmly gave us instructions (orders) what he wanted us to do. It was a touch and go situation but the calm captain did it perfectly. The other person on the boat had known him longer than I had and said to me he did that very well didn’t he? I replied yes. She said he looked and acted calm didn’t he? Again. I said yes. She said he wasn’t. He was panicking inside but he knew if he panicked we would too and then he would have had three panicking people onboard which would have made a bad situation worse. Naturally the anti Trump groupies will claim he acted wrong. Ignore them as no matter what he does he is wrong to them. They are people that haven’t been and should never be in a command position. If they are in command positions their emotional anti Trump feelings are overriding their reason and will end in disaster. We have seen the comical side of panic in The Great Toilet Paper Panic of 2020. The disaster side of the coin is not comical it is ugly.
We have seen the signs and are choosing to ignore them in the interest of political correctness. The left doesn’t care as problems play into their hands and agenda. Liberals of yesterday ignored problems which came to bite them. They are ignoring problems with China and Islam that will bite us in the future and actually are presently biting us. Live Science site wrote concerning the danger of ignoring something: “Mein Kampf” was a clear-cut warning to the world of Hitler’s intentions for war and genocide, which may have been recognized and prevented had more people read it outside of Germany, some historians say.” Neville Chamberlain with his scrap of paper signed by Hitler boasted “peace for our time”. Think of China and Islam and their ideology and stated goals and actions towards those goals. We have become so weak our adversaries no longer hide it. We don’t have to read it they are broadcasting it. When someone says they want to kill you take it serious and take it personal. I do see the potential for mutually beneficial relationships with China and Russia if we “play our cards right.” From the poem by Rudyard Kipling:
“Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgment Seat;
But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
When two strong men stand face to face, though they come from the ends of the earth!”
The Chinese Communists have purchased, by hook or crook, large amounts of property globally and, also globally, have gobbled up massive amounts of natural resources. (Refer back to the previous essay for links. Also read “Winner Take All” quotes in the Books Worth Reading section of this site.) Their population has doomed them unless they expand. I have admiration and respect for the Chinese as I have said before. They are a culture that is ancient and have kept their identity. They are goal oriented and focused and very intelligent. Also, as I have said, I don’t believe the current global virus pandemic was a complete accident. It may not have been an accident at all but until investigated and proven one way or the other we must openly give the benefit of the doubt to the Chinese. Our system says any benefit of the doubt must go to the accused and in the interest of fairness we must extend that in our international relations, but with extreme caution and extreme scrutiny. Using the explanation it “accidentally” escaped from a lab it would be logical the Chinese would attempt to minimize the incident. We probably would have done the same thing. I find it hard to condemn someone for doing what I or we would have done in similar circumstances. They knew the potential seriousness and stopped flights to other parts of China from the affected area but did not stop international flights from the affected area to the rest of the world. The liberals are oblivious and there are only two options that will save us. The red and blue going separate ways was my original first choice preference. I have seen and made remarks on Facebook about secession and the red and blue going their separate ways and the comments from the left to my comments are always, always, always, something to the effect of “go ahead we don’t need them,” or “we would be better off without them,” or “good get rid of the parasites,” or the “red take more than they give,” or “good riddance.” I again quote William Jennings Bryan with a portion of his famous “Cross of Gold” speech given at the 1896 Democratic convention:
“. . . I tell you that the great cities rest upon these broad and fertile prairies. Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic. But destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.”
While the red states and areas and the blue states and areas have views that are incompatible neither is completely right or completely wrong but the left has made it impossible for dialogue or harmony to exist. They are using emotions and instigating, fomenting, and pushing for violence and are using deceit. Their continuing harassment of Trump and his supporters has created an atmosphere of hate and resentment. They can’t see it either or don’t care. Like with Nazis or extortionists one concession always leads to more demands usually ludicrous ones. They have been programmed and indoctrinated to the point they support a 1984 type dictatorship and they are oblivious to it. As in 1984 they believe contradictory things as: “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.” They can’t rationally think. As far as education is concerned an average high school dropout of the baby boom generation or a generation Xer could almost run circles around them in basic math and English and practical thinking. The emotions of arrogance and self-righteousness have replaced thinking. They are all the likes of a Matthew Hopkins the Witch Finder General of The Conqueror Worm, a movie depicting the inquisition against witches. The medieval Catholic Church were rank amateurs compared to these leftists and the screaming, hysterical peasants were intellectuals compared to today’s screaming college students and protestors. Liberals can be compared to the peasants screaming about the devil and witches or the party members in 1984 screaming about Emmanuel Goldstein, the Enemy of the People. Like Trump he was responsible for everything bad. I do not hold the Republicans in much higher esteem.
There is no real pat answer to anything. One thing is for certain though. If you continue to play in a poker game that is rigged you are going to lose. Concerning the pandemic we are in a “Catch 22” situation which is a no win situation. If we go back to work there will be an uptick in deaths. If the economy collapses it is going to be like Humpty Dumpty, the children’s story of the giant living egg man, falling off the wall scenario. “All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again.” If the economy collapses there will be deaths. The goods wants and needs and the failure of the system to manufacture and deliver these wants and needs will result in possibly more deaths than the virus itself will cause. Isolation also is fraught with problems such as suicides, substance abuse and divorce, as we witnessed in the pandemic lock down. As well as lack of medicine, food, water, and energy the crime situation will be way out of control. Jails have already let out many thousands. If the system collapses there will be widespread violence and crime all part of the Democrat plan for chaos to bring about collapse. Rural residents will fare better because they are more independent, self-sufficient, are better able to defend themselves and usually know who their neighbors are. The blue areas within the red areas and red areas within blue areas would have to be respected obviously. The blue areas surrounded by the red would be well off in the event of the inevitable and predictable collapse of the coastal blue. Eventually these areas will realize the coastal blue areas are lost and their economic and security interests would be better served with the red and would undoubtedly try to merge. It would be to the advantage of both for them to do so. We are better off as a whole but the mental condition of the left makes it increasingly more impossible day by day.
There would obviously be issues and details to hammer out but it could be done. I thought of a few. It will have to be done if the system collapses anyway and the first half of 2020 demonstrated how fragile it is. The best way would be an easing out and retaining as large a united section as possible. The idea is to avoid violence. With violence the nation would collapse and the destruction would make it harder or impossible to repair. The violence we are witnessing can get much worse. Much much worse. Obviously there would have to be a lot of thought and sessions held to discuss and solve issues. There are numerous articles on secession on the net some of which have discussed issues to resolve. Essay 9B has some links to articles on secession. Social security and Medicare and pensions would be tops on the list. The red could probably be able to manage them as the blue areas are the parasitic ones. While the blue does have the majority of manufacturing it would be easy to reverse it. The taxes and conditions of the blue areas make them less and less attractive to business. The blue are only prosperous because of the red. The reverse could be also said but under normal conditions. We are in and heading deeper into non normal conditions. The old town hall brain-storming sessions of intelligent people would come up with an answer to each problem. Another major issue would be the military personnel and equipment. Another one of the advantages of remaining whole is this would not come up.The military must use logic not emotions in all their decisions and logic tells them which side is the most likely to survive and be most self sufficient. The blue will continue to disintegrate.
A big advantage is the red area is very large and by offering businesses incentives and protection from the crime and parasitic nature and instability of the blue, which is partially why they fled originally, many businesses could probably be brought back from overseas thus creating jobs and a vibrant economy. The infrastructure is there albeit in some need of repair here and there but it is there. Also promoting education not indoctrination as it has been would help bring some industries back as smart people are always in demand by business. The South China Morning Post of July 2, 2020 has an article titled: “American firms’ move to China over past 20 years threatens US ability to lead and compete”. “As US business in China focuses more on high-end tech production, the risk rises that America is helping Beijing reach industrial and military goals: report.” Link is:
From the article:
“Calls by the administration of US President Donald Trump for American firms to move their production from China became louder after the new coronavirus outbreak disrupted industrial supply chains, bringing to the fore concerns about an over-reliance on China.”
Wow it is certainly fortunate the accidental virus just happened along at the right time to help China and the Democrats. Just wow.
While we are at odds with China and Russia the reason is not what most believe. Most think we are at odds with them because we have vast differences. Not true. We are rivals because we are so similar. We have much the same values as far as what a society is and its organization. We have most of the same needs for our societies. The nuclear family is a foundation stone of stability which is necessary for an organized, technological society. Russia supports the Orthodox Church which also lends itself to stability. I am surprised China is still so anti religion, at least against Christianity. Christianity gave stability to society that allowed science to develop and the family is a basic concept. Jesus said to “render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and render unto God that which is God’s” which would mean Christians were to not rebel or cheat the state. Edgar Cayce, also known as the “Sleeping Prophet” predicted China would be the hope of the free world because it would eventually accept Christianity. He died in 1945 long before China had started its rise to global significance. It would actually be in China’s best interest to do so. I am sure that if you spoke with the average Russian or Chinese you would find you probably have a similarity of 90% with them. It would be in the best interest of all three nations to cooperate in space exploration. Our survival depends on two things: the population and the development of space travel. Two people working together can accomplish more than three working separately. Three would be capable of really amazing feats. If not the three at least working with Russia should be possible. Our astronauts rode their space capsules to the International Space Station for years. That could be accomplished with either separation of the red and blue or remaining united. In some ways it might be easier separated as the shedding of areas that are parasitic and have a large number of violent criminals would be advantageous. Here is a link to an article from Breaking Defense on the U.S. and Russia meeting to discuss “norms of behavior in space.”
The idea is to plan a future path that is logical, realistic, attainable and desirable.. Boeing might be persuaded to move to the red areas. It is obvious Seattle is run by either incompetents or Marxists or both. A Seattle city councilwoman has outright said they would socialize business. Below from RealClearPolitics.com:
Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant delivers a message after passing the “Amazon Tax” at a digital city council meeting on Monday.
“I have a message for Jeff Bezos and his class,” Sawant warned. “If you attempt again to overturn the Amazon Tax, working people will go all out in the thousands to beat you. And we will not stop there.”
Gun and munitions manufacturers would be interested as the push to outlaw guns comes from the blue areas. Eventually some type of trade pacts could be established with various nations. And trade and business need not stop between the red and blue it would be only they run the areas to their own ideological “specifications.” Economically the red areas would still be very powerful. Perhaps more so after shedding the malignant tumors the blue areas have become. It seems the residents of the blue areas are OK with the violence as they don’t seem to be very active in opposing the destruction of their cities. It could be fear which also tells anyone that has intelligence the cities are lost. Living in fear of criminals and voting to defund the police are contradictory. The election will tell much about those areas. Overall I think the potential of the red areas would be close to what the entire nation’s was in the past once shed of the burden of the crime ridden out of control blue areas. Following two links are cases in point that point in that direction. A billion dollar firm is leaving Seattle to move to Arizona and Elon Musk is dissatisfied with California. They are not the only two by a long shot. Carl Icahn is moving his multi billion dollar business to Florida from New York.
I think an aerospace industry could be established. The reality is, whether some want to admit it or not, Cape Canaveral will be rendered unusable in the future. Cape Canaveral is where our satellites are launched. Build a launch area inland. Here is an article discussing Space X being worth $100billion. Space is the future. Humanity has always pushed forward but the left will stop it in order to fund social problems they created creating a stagnant future. Space will die and social problems will flourish. That is slow painful suicide.
The key to being successful is to make the red area very useful and desirable to those at the top of the “food chain” so to speak.. In other words red areas must make themselves very valuable to business. Create a safe business environment businesses do not want to invest in areas that are unstable and violent. Given the values of Western civilization businesses are aware of the advantage of being located within the borders of nations with Western values. In “The Coming Anarchy” Kaplan said and remember this was written in 1999:
“Of the world’s hundred largest economies, fifty-one are not countries, but corporations. While the two hundred largest corporations employ less than three fourths of 1 percent of the world’s workforce, they account for 28 percent of world economic activity. The five hundred largest corporations account for 70% of world trade. . . .”
That is a large pool from which to attract some very big fish and the red areas could make themselves very attractive to many of them. Two major keys are to be business friendly and to be safe. Other major factors are to have a good educational system and a good transportation system. The left has destroyed our educational system and if it boiled down to riding in horse drawn buggies in order to fund social programs you better get used to stepping over horse manure in the streets. You should be getting practice maneuvering around human manure on sidewalks.Our educational system is turning out students with very few practical skills and that lack the ability to critically think.They are also hamstringing businesses with absurd politically correct requirements.
The money for one thing would ultimately become a major issue. As I said trade between the two countries would not need to be affected. Each produces goods and services needed by the other. What would be affected would be the rules by which each separate “country/nation” would live by. Such as rioters could be dealt with in red areas whereas in blue areas rioting is condoned. Criminals would not go free with no bail or consequences for actions. While it may be easier to stay with the present currency at first inevitably the blue areas will eventually create conditions that require just printing money which will collapse the entire economy. This is liberal philosophy. It has never worked but they keep on trying never learning from the past as with everything. It has been so since time immemorial. Rome did it. They devalued their money by diluting its content of valuable metal. They also let in the forces that would sack the empire. The mail would be another item on the list. Obviously within the red areas it would be no problem. In the blue areas it might be another matter. Food production would not be a problem as the vast majority is grown in red areas. Another issue would be power grids and transportation over the highways from the blue areas to other blue areas and red areas to red areas within the borders of the other. The interstates would be free travel zones. Most blue areas and red areas even within borders of the other are connected by interstate highways or major state highways. Those last two would be very simple to solve, very simple.
I think trucking companies would be more receptive to red areas than blue. Red areas are centrally located and the red would be more industry friendly. There would be more security for the highways. Keep in mind that industry will not build in areas that are unstable. Why build where rioters and looters will loot and destroy your property. The companies that are donating millions of dollars to organizations that will confiscate their firms and property are feeding the alligator that will eat them. If they want to maintain their businesses they will move to red areas. A large percentage of power grids and plants are in red areas and the fracking industry is mostly in red areas. It has to be acknowledged that fracking is destructive and not unlimited. Certain things must gradually be made self sustaining such as medical facilities, military and law enforcement facilities, utilities, etc. They must be for two reasons. One: to maximize the life of the available oil reserves by slowly reducing demand thus leaving more available long term for automobiles and heating of homes, and manufacturing and number two: to make the basic survival services more immune to disasters, either man or nature made. The following link is to an article on restoring America’s industrial capabilities being attempted by members of the Senate and House of both parties so some ground work is being laid.
The left has formed coalitions of numerous identity groups that have two things in common: get and take as much free stuff as possible and hate Trump because he stands in the way. The red also has many groups that can be pulled together but the difference is they are more self-controlled. The red should be encouraging in aiding all conservatives and businesses to move to those areas. Military, police, professionals, and those with work ethics and skills etc. would be likely to leave the blue areas for safer and cleaner spaces. Industrious and intelligent people would be glad to move to an area that appreciates their qualities. Those with views of similar values could be assisted if necessary. Anyone that wants to be of value would be encouraged and welcomed. There are many Black, Latino, Asian, and Indian conservatives that would be interested because they know they would be better off economically and also be safer in red areas. Racism is out. It is a crime and a sin to hold race, sex, partner preference or culture against someone and hold them down or back. It is also a crime and a sin to elevate someone because of race, sex, partner preference or culture. People can retain their culture in their communities but in the overall society there can only be one culture. A culture determines a societies level of prosperity and success. In order to function efficiently everyone must be on the same page just as an orchestra, although made up of many instruments, must be on the same musical piece and same note. A military operation must be coordinated to be successful. In an orchestra or military unit there is no diversity only a common objective. Like the speech Booker T. Washington gave at the 1895 Atlanta Exposition: “In all things purely social we can be as separate as the fingers, yet one as the hand in all things essential to mutual progress.” There are Blacks and Latinos that are conservative as they have education, intelligence, common sense, decency, and work ethics. Same with Asians and Indians. Same with gays. The duty of a secular society is to punish crimes not sins. That is God’s department. In the event of violence, and violence is almost inevitable, they all must be protected and defended if necessary because the left has made the conflict racial, sexist and cultural. Blacks that are conservatives are labeled Uncle Toms or worse but the reality is it is the Al Sharptons and BLMs that are the Uncle Toms and worse. They support the party and side of the political system that holds them back in order to control them. The Democrats have politicized and weaponized everything to make it racial or sexist. Because of that fact minority conservatives would be especially targeted by the left and must be shielded. It is not a matter of race as both sides have members of all races represented it is a matter of civilized people vs uncivilized people. Those that want to continue advancing and those that want to stagnate or revert. (They do not think they are reverting but that is the direction their philosophy and actions make inevitable.) While some may deny the potential of violence the possibility and probability has to be on the table.. Remember in a previous essay I said unless something is 101% impossible, regardless of how farfetched, it is still on the table until dis-proven. And it does not take a rocket scientist to see the odds favor violence. One black comedian had veiled death threats for his support of Trump. Another, Candace Owens, is targeted too. A YouTube video titled: A Bounty On The Head Of Candace Owens! The White Devil & His Black Judas! by Mauricelm X was released. It is by a Muslim who is Black. A link to the video in case you think it is an exaggeration. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbtmMxXCrFw
The word racism is tossed around by liberals cavalierly and it is used by the left to answer all questions and silence people. When someone disagrees with them they just call them racist and that is suppose to be the end and win the disagreement. Race relations were improving in the U.S.slowly but surely. The black community was receiving more and more education and making gains in the work force two things they fought hard for. They valued education and had a work ethic. There was a stable home life with the majority of children being born into two parent households. Then along came the liberals and the government to help. When Lyndon Johnson introduced his Great Society and his War on Poverty it basically made welfare an occupation. It became easy for a single mother to get a government check. This destroyed the black nuclear family and now the majority of black children are born to unwed mothers. This translates into a less structured and less stable home life which adversely affects the children in school and employment. They lack the discipline necessary for success. These are the recruits of organizations such as The Nation of Islam and Black Lives Matter. They can blame whites for their plight. In a way it is true but they are blaming the wrong whites. They should be blaming the white liberals that rushed in to help using emotions rather than reason. Malcolm X could see the damage done by white liberals.
The conservatives are always being accused of racism in politics but all the conservatives I know would vote for a black, female conservative over a white, male liberal. If the red and blue separate. Candace Owens would be a good candidate for President of the red country. She would probably win with a landslide. She is actually qualified to be in a command position. She is intelligent and articulate. She thinks logically. Most of her liberal counterparts have a victim psychology and Candace Owens does not. Listen to her and then the governors of the states and the mayors of the cities going up flames and analyze what they are saying and not saying.
The liberal coalitions are only temporary because once they collapse the system their unity crumbles because they have no actual values holding them together. The core value holding them together now is they hate Trump and want free stuff. Those are not core values that will build a durable future. They are displaying the intelligence of the zombie like groupthink mentality of Orwell’s 1984. That level of intelligence does not have the ability to design, build, maintain or repair anything.
The military would be better off with most of their bases and personnel in red areas. The red area residents would be supportive of the military while the blue areas despise them as they do the police. The military can see both sides and to them it would be obvious which was the most reasonable, the most supportive and least problem side. They are witnessing which side is the most violent and least disciplined by their actions at present. They also know which side the support from elected officials would come from. They know where the majority of recruits would come from. They also know which areas would support them financially and which side would defund them in order to give extra food stamps to voters. Of course there are bases they couldn’t or wouldn’t abandon in urban areas for various reasons one being as the blue crumble they might invite foreign nations or the UN to set up in them. Leftists do not think rationally. The large metropolitan areas are lost and the military understands strategic withdrawals. Most withdrawals would only be temporary. There are many blue areas that would opt to go with the red. The losses would be the large metropolis areas which are the problems so no real loss. It would actually be a gain. Over 90% of the land area of the US would be red and those blue that could see the writing on the wall. (Refer to maps above.) The Roman Empire shed some areas out of necessity when they became more of a drain and more trouble than they were worth. Their problems did not come from from shedding them but other problems that developed in those areas bled over into the retained areas. Only fools would think the disasters the blue areas have become are worth saving without a change in attitude by the residents. Blue areas are crumbling due to years of leftist mismanagement and businesses fleeing. The condition of the cities are conditions that cities always produce.because of mismanagement and size
People breakdown in overcrowded conditions but the welfare policies of the left have exacerbated the problems and made them unsolvable. The crime and unsanitary conditions are taking a toll and it is only going to get worse. The recent violence and looting should make apparent they have very little concern or respect for law and order. Law and order and morals are essential foundation stones of a civilized society. The videos of the hysterical screaming and rantings and looting of the demonstrators make it apparent they do not believe in law and order and lack the emotional stability and intellectual wherewithal to do so.. The actions and reactions of the governors of the states and mayors of the cities affected are Democrats and it is plainly evident they haven’t a clue, or they don’t care or have Marxist motives. Democrats have run those cities for decades and the conditions have gotten worse. The reason is the social problems allow the Democrats to get large sums of money from the federal government for programs that obviously do not work. They have human feces and drug syringes on the sidewalks and schools that turn out many students that can’t read, write or do math proficiently and they spend more per student than red areas.. They have more violence in the schools. They have more homeless because the left has made homelessness an acceptable lifestyle and they subsidize it. They have more crime. The coastal blue areas will also succumb to rising oceans eventually. The blue areas will become more and more unmanageable and ultimately the military would have to step in eventually. The police are on the defensive and that is not good from a safety and security perspective. The military has to be watching these events with concern. On the weekend of Father’s Day 2020 Chicago had 104 people shot and 14 of them dead. The large cities have become areas that if compared to a human body would be considered malignant tumors growing and will eventually kill the entire body or in this case the nation. If the germ fighting soldier cells of the body do not recognize the germ cells such as cancer as bad they let them grow they will kill the host. Same with humn societies.
The military knows which side of the spectrum is the most stable and the side they can count on. They also know which side supports them and which side has the work ethic and are of practical value and have the healthier outlook and attitudes. The question is have they been compromised? Under normal circumstances if they have not been they would side with the red areas. If one word had to describe the basis of everything military it would be honor. If that ever disappears there is no hope. My advice is pray.
One of the stupidest things I have ever heard of is the defunding the police. With cities being torched and looted and letting criminals out of jails and prisons the last thing to defund would be the police and military. That is another reason for the red and blue to separate. As an independent nation border security would be easier to maintain, provide traditional law enforcement and prosecute criminals. The trend will be in many blue areas to go with private security for the wealthy. As police and military are defunded more and more there will be less and less protection for the citizens. Red areas will not be defunding police which will be good for red areas and bad for blue. Criminals go for the easy “pickin’s.” Plus blue areas will be passing gun control legislation making blue areas more attractive to criminals and less safe for the average citizen. Many corporations, both national and international, where police are hamstrung by politics are providing housing with private security. If the blue areas defund and/or eliminate the police private security will increase to pick up the slack. The following is from The Coming Anarchy: (We better look at what the future under radical socialists will be if they win.)
“The number of residential communities with defended perimeters that have been built by corporations went from one thousand in the early 1960s to more than eighty thousand by the mid-1980s, with continued dramatic increases in the 1990s. . . . Then there are malls, with their own rules and security forces, as opposed to public streets; private health clubs, as opposed to public playgrounds; incorporated suburbs of strict zoning; and other mundane aspects of daily existence in which – perhaps without realizing it, because the changes have been so gradual – we opt out of the public sphere and the “social contract” for the sake of a protected setting
As I said I am sure many businesses would jump at the chance to build or rebuild in a safe area. Many that have been burned down cannot be rebuilt in the cities that just had looting and rioting. Cost to do so and insurance would be prohibitive and why should they? The next time something happens or someone won’t kiss their rears they riot and burn the place down again. It is a pattern that has been repeated over and over. It is easier to torch businesses and loot than it is to get an education and a job. These are no doubt communist and radical left instigated but they may be doing normal people a favor. They have alerted us to a disease that was known but underestimated and has now reached a stage of being terminal without draconian measures. Get out of a burning building or city. I am sure some big businesses that left the US could be persuaded to return. People will flee the blue areas for the stability and safety the red areas can deliver. Many are moving now. The educational system could be brought back to actually teaching instead of indoctrinating with rewritten history. Who in their right minds would want to send their children to failing, unsafe schools? That is insanity adding proof liberals are insane as if we needed more proof. In mass hysteria they are rushing out to do something to look like they know what they are doing. The old joke of do something even if it is wrong takes on a serious and tragic meaning. Many leftist groups are playing pied piper to the ignorant masses. Like in the story of Pinocchio and Pleasure Island irresponsible bad boys fall into bad behavior and are turned into jackasses and sold as slave animals. I find it an interesting coincidence that the symbol of the Democrat Party is a jackass. The Democrat leaders are playing social engineers using the population for guinea pigs. They themselves bare no responsibility or receive no adverse consequences from being wrong but you do. They are well protected away from the common people they consider dumb herd animals. Dumb herd animals that vote. They have gained the support of the ignorant, the weak-minded and those of lower intelligence.
Another advantage is the red areas would maintain the concept of the individual. Group organization is necessary but the ultimate out come of the Democrat and leftist tactics will be the establishment of a Star Trek Borg type collective. They cannot think independently. They cannot think out side their ideological bubble. They make great social workers but are terrible in command positions. They should never be in positions of responsibility and authority in any areas involving safety, security or stability. Red areas would retain the ability to think outside the box. In times of war or civil unrest conservqatives tend to be realistic while the left likes to pontificate and write theoretical ideas that are often impossible. Rewatch the above video about the privacyless, freedomless smart city.
This would be a major responsibility of the “red nation.” We need to consider the future as proposed by the emerging radical left represented by antifa, BLM, socialists communists and Democrats. They are rewriting history to fit their future vision. They believe that by doing so they can usher in an age of perfection. They believe that by collectivization they can mask individual weaknesses in the group thereby raising them to equality. That is somewhat true but it comes at a cost. Newton’s Third Law comes into play which they want to ignore. That law, “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction” shows up in by raising the bottom you lower the top. You can hide the weaknesses but also hide the strengths. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. You can hide weak links by painting them all but it does not alter the weakness of the weak links. The chain will fail at the weak link taking the strong links down also. Innovation comes from exceptional talent of top minds. Both the mediocre and exceptional are lost in the merge to a collective. A good example of the ultimate end of the momentum they are building and the direction they are headed is a Star Trek Borg collective. Their basic philosophy does not allow for any deviation in thinking. This has been the theme of many works of fiction. A few that come to mind are “1984” by George Orwell, “Atlas Shrugged” and “Anthem” by Ayn Rand, and “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury.
These books and others are dangers to the left so will be banned just like the books mentioned had societies that banned books. They are already banning books that they find offensive. In the rewriting of history the ability to learn from the past is lost. As in the passage from Orwell’s “1984”: “. . . to be efficient it was necessary to be able to learn from the past, which meant having a fairly accurate idea of what had happened in the past.” It would be the responsibility of the red “nation” to maintain accurate history. This could be done by maintaining libraries of all works that can be accumulated. To lose the knowledge of the past and of the thoughts of many brilliant thinkers would be to doom the human race.
Here is an excellent take on the left’s vision of the Future. Steven Pinker in his “The Blank Slate” quotes from “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut:
“The year was 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal before God and the law. They were equal in every way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.”
Pinker goes on and says:
The handicapper General enforces equality by neutralizing any inherited (hence undeserved) asset. Intelligent people have two-way radios in their ears tuned to a government transmitter that sends out a sharp noise every 20 seconds (such as the sound of a milk bottle struck with a ball-peen hammer) to prevent them from taking unfair advantage of their brains. Ballerinas are laden with bags of birdshot and their faces are hidden by masks so that no one can feel bad at seeing someone prettier or more graceful than they. Newscasters are selected for their speech impediments. The hero of the story is a multiply gifted teenager forced to wear headphones, thick wavy glasses, 300 pounds of scrap iron, and black caps on half his teeth. The story is about his ill-fated rebellion.”
“Polices that insist that people be identical in their outcomes must impose costs on humans who, like all living things, vary in their biological endowment. Since talents by definition are rare, and can be fully realized only in rare circumstances, it is easier to achieve forced equality by lowering the top (and thereby depriving everyone of the fruits of people’s talents) than by raising the bottom.”
You better make up your minds soon as the election is coming up and the blue areas are collapsing and want the red to bail them out for their lack of fiscal responsibility. I feel relatively safe in saying they are going to want some federal assistance to rebuild the cities they allowed to be destroyed. (Added. They did and do.) The Democrat leaders destroyed them by giving approval. If you remember right the mayor of Baltimore said give them space while they were destroying the city. The mayor of Seattle described the rioters that took over 6 blocks of the city as a “summer of love’ like it was a hippie love-in. In a few days they had several shootings and rapes and wouldn’t let the police in. The mayor of Portland went out to noin them and show his support and they turned on him. Everyone that is sane knows this is not sane. The result of the blue areas will be like when a large ship sinks. It creates the water equivalent of a sinkhole as it slips beneath the waves and pulls whatever is on the surface around it down. Much like a tablecloth being pulled off a table with the silverware and dishes still on it as the ship goes down the momentary hole it leaves in the surface. It closes quickly but acts like a whirlpool sucking surrounding debris and lifeboats and people down with it as the water rushes back in to fill the brief void. They are indoctrinating and sexualizing your children long before they should be. This weakens the family sucking the family unit down the sinkhole. The destruction of the nuclear family is part of the BLM goals. They state it and they admit they are Marxist. Their goals coincide with much of the socialist agenda listed in Essay 2A. Even China and Russia hold the family in more value than these mentally deranged liberals. The blue areas are lost. We would probably be able to salvage some as time went on though. They have created pension shortages and large “cities” of homeless people. They support parasites at the expense of safety, security, stability and infrastructure. Dams in California and Michigan have collapsed so they could support people that will not work or enter the country illegally. That is vote buying. They encourage crime. The blue areas say the red are the parasites and many blues say they would be glad to get rid of the red. They know the red could survive without them but they could not survive without the red. Call their bluff. I mean it. Their howling would be proof enough. The Democrat blue areas are on a suicide mission and want to take as many with them as possible. As they say misery loves company.
With the election looming the Democrats are in a quandary. Joe Biden is their nominee but he has some cognitive issues. The Democrat party is going to pick a running mate for vice president for him as he does not have the ability to do so himself. The problem is the entire Democrat Party is a party of social workers. They are going to pick a social worker electable by identity politics. Democrat mayors are releasing criminals with no bail. Prosecutors are not prosecuting crimes, sometimes even violent ones. They have made homelessness an acceptable lifestyle. They want to do away with law enforcement. They want to weaken the military. They claim they want to redistribute wealth but Philip Yancey said it best: “Political revolutions may have redistributed wealth (though most proved better at redistributing poverty) but at a horrific cost in violence and death.” All revolutions have produced mass murder of their own citizens. A social worker is fine in a social services office but not in the oval office as a national leader. Obama was basically a social worker. He was described as such by a Russian government official. In the next Essay I have provided a link that describes the military being turned into a social justice experiment under Obama. If elected Biden will be replaced by his VP. The VP will have a social worker mentality with no experience dealing with hostile regimes and complicated economic issues. Social workers belong in social services offices not in command positions of nations, armies or businesses. Since this was written the Democrats have picked their VP. It is Kamala Harris. She was picked due to identity politics and is extreme far left. She is a former District Attorney and Attorney General of California. She got her start in politics by the sexist actions of sleeping with a man (Willie Brown) almost three times her age. Since Biden will not make it an entire term, actually probably less than a year, it will be a Harris presidency. If Pelosi is still the speaker after the election it will be a Harris presidency and a Pelosi vice-presidency. At that point there is nothing left to lose with either secession or military intervention. Secession should be dominating the conversation if the Dems win and plans should be discussed. Eventually it will reach a point in the Democrat administration that it will be apparent their policies will destroy America. At that point it will be known whether the military has been compromised. or not. If they stand by and do nothing while policies that are jeopardizing the safety, security and stability of the nation are being implemented they have been compromised. At that point secession will be the only option available. Literally we (the red) are the last hope of sanity and Western civilization. It boils down to logic vs emotion. Better start thinking now.
The conversation I had with the Muslim I spoke of was an extremely interesting one. It was just by chance I met him and we got to chit-chatting and for some reason he mentioned he was a Muslim. He had hazel eyes, a light complexion, sandy colored hair and looked as Middle Eastern as I do which is not at all. I must have had a noticeably startled look on my face and he must have felt an explanation was necessary. He came from Yugoslavia that used to be communist but broke up very shortly after the Soviet Union collapsed. The area he was in was basically Muslim and his family were business people and converted because non-Muslims had to pay an extra tax and were not well thought of and were often in physical danger. He said many converted for those reasons. I pulled from my memory what I learned in my international relations class in high school and news items I remember from the past. Tito, who was the leader of Yugoslavia, was considered a WW2 war hero to Yugoslavia. He was a communist but a renegade as he broke from Stalin and Russia that almost resulted in armed conflict. His was a socialist nation but it wasn’t modeled after the Russian model. He was a dictator but he was a fair one. He was considered brutal by some and benevolent by others. Yugoslavia was a multi-ethnic nation and Tito maintained order by giving each region what could be considered a good degree of autonomy. However he did whatever was necessary to keep the nation together though. Before his death he kept the religious conflicts in check. After the Soviets collapsed Yugoslavia broke up and chaos and violence were common which most of us baby boomers and Generation Xers can remember from the news. Bloodshed and violence were the norm and finally after years of internal wars, negotiations and treaties and intervention by other nations Yugoslavia ended up as several nations that had and still have ethnic and religious bitterness towards each other. I asked if he felt Yugoslavia was better off together or as several independent nations even if some heavy-handedness had to be used to maintain order. He said yes the average person was better off and business was better off in a united Yugoslavia because it could operate safely. People were safer under a united country also. Also the money situation was more stable in a united Yugoslavia. He left when the violence and chaos and instability just got too much for him. I did research and thought a lot about it and that is why I changed to secession as the second choice. If break up does occur it is in the best interest of the red areas to retain as much and remain as large as possible. If the Military has been compromised and the red and blue have to go their separate ways as long as the red states and areas stay united and back each other they will be fine. They have a better work ethic and there is plenty of opportunity to attract business.
I close this essay with a quote from “The Coming Anarchy” by Robert D. Kaplan. It is from the section in the book titled A Premonition of the Future. This future will be brought on by liberals and will be felt in blue areas first which we can see they already are as witnessed nightly on the news. The separation of red and blue will at least isolate the blue and put a barrier between the two cultures. The blue will continue to take in refugees beyond their ability to support. They will continue to release criminals into society and crime, including rape and murder, will skyrocket. Their educational system will continue to produce undisciplined and illiterate young with no practical skills and no work ethic. They will eventually collapse and in fact they are collapsing now.. They do these things because it makes them feel superior and self-righteous when they are actually stupid and sanctimonious. When you have friends like these you don’t need enemies.
“West Africa is becoming a symbol of worldwide demographic, environmental, and societal stress, in which criminal anarchy emerges as the real “strategic” danger. Disease, overpopulation, unprovoked crime, scarcity of resources, refugee migrations, increasing erosion of nation-states and international borders, and the empowerment of private armies, security firms, and international drug cartels are now most tellingly demonstrated through a west African prism. West Africa provides an appropriate introduction to the issues, often extremely unpleasant to discuss, that will soon confront our civilization.”
They are now confronting our civilizations.
Next the first choice. Our most logical choice unless one condition is present. There is one issue that could derail it and if that situation exists than secession is the only choice. It is if the military has been compromised. If they support the coup the Democrats have planned then they have been compromised. If they have not been compromised then both possibilities exist and we must choose one if not one will be chosen for us by circumstances forming on the horizon. If they have been compromised then the only option is secession. If not eventually there will be a civil war and violent break up of the country into several sections. If the red stick together and all secede at once the nation will be only split in two and for the most part economically things will be much as usual in the red. The blue will collapse from their own policies.. I had a friend say, half in jest, that he thinks the plagues and troubles came from God. I replied less than half in jest maybe he was right. If you believe in prayer . . . pray. If you don’t believe in prayer pray anyway. It is like chicken soup it won’t hurt. We are in serious trouble.
