Hanging Separately Instead of Together
We just can't get along
There are many reasons why we are now living under perhaps the greatest tyranny any people has had to contend with. We’ve heard horrific things about the Nazis, and the Soviets, the Red Chinese, etc. But the sources for that are part of this tyranny. I don't know how true any of those claims are. I do know how bad America 2.0 is.
Behind all of our problems is a very small group. Very small. We are indeed just like sheep, being herded around by a single dog. Democracy, which our leaders claim is the form of government we live under, is supposed to mean rule by majority. Our leaders established a constitutional republic, not a democracy. But if we accept their contention for hypothetical purposes, then it must be acknowledged that in this democracy, the overwhelming majority of citizens have absolutely no power, and no say over how things are done. We let obscene political “representatives,” militarized police, increasingly unhinged but well-funded activists, and supposed “experts” of varying sorts decide what will be done, or (usually) not done.
It’s like a bunch of strapping adults decided to permit a handful of toddlers with severe behavioral problems to boss them around and beat them with sticks. Waiting for their unformed, and cognitively challenged little minds to decide what to do. And then unquestioningly following. The majority of Americans have turned into lethargic masochists, cuckolds, and willing indentured servants. Some of them take out their pent up rage on their closest loved ones. But never at those who are responsible for the rage. Those who are frustrating them, creating chronic stress, and literally making them sick through their ass backwards priorities and irrational actions.
Two hundred years ago, the shenanigans of virtually every major politician today would have earned them a painful tar and feathering. Nowadays, it guarantees them reelection. And I don’t think they need massive voter fraud to accomplish that. First of all, in most political races (if there even is an opponent) there is no real choice. It’s always the lesser of two evils. Sure, they may tweak things for their special favorites, but the voting public has shown how stupid and uninformed they are too many times for us to ever trust them to do the right thing. They have been trained to vote against their interests. Polls would probably show 90 percent or more of the people in favor of term limits. So why don’t we have term limits? What kind of “democracy” is this?
We have so few, and such disastrous choices for political office. The cream shouldn’t always sink to the bottom. That can’t happen naturally, without any conspiratorial machinations. Again, both the Democrats and Republicans have the capacity to see that better and honest people are installed into power at every level. That goes for government across the board. But corruption and incompetence became entrenched long ago, and the corrupt and incompetent just pick their successors, who show promise of continuing the corruption and incompetence. It’s a vicious cycle, but no one can stop it. You know, like those party faithful who seemingly, at least, aren’t corrupt and incompetent. At least a majority must be somewhat honest, right?
Now on the surface the situation is ridiculous. It is tantamount to one demented family establishing an ironclad authoritarian rule over the other hundreds of families in their large neighborhood. That shouldn’t be able to happen, but if a family that’s psychopathic and aggressive enough wanted to do that, I have little doubt that they would succeed. In fact, in a location not far from me, in my zip code, a deranged homeowner’s association has ruled a huge community for decades. The thousands of homeowners there somehow can’t figure out how to remove them from power. Their draconian decrees are the stuff of legend around here. This isn’t Congress. This is a homeowner’s association. And we can’t even throw those bums out.
I talk often about the Proles in Orwell’s 1984. Our proles are just as helpless to combat a foe that is every bit as powerful as Big Brother, even though we outnumber them even more dramatically than the citizens of Oceana outnumbered the Inner Party. It’s a numbers game all across the board. I’ve seen it at even the smallest centers of power. Homeowner’s associations are notorious for this. In youth sports, mostly those who want to possess power volunteer to be league directors or commissioners. You can see it in dance classes and Girl Scouts. As one of my favorite populist philosophers, Lord Acton, said, Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. But why do the majority so willingly give power to personalities who don’t wield it responsibly?
I explored some of this in my book Bullyocracy. Most people are followers. Order takers. They learn this role, or at least they used to learn it before the “Woke” agenda took center stage, in their years of all day schooling. How to be an obedient servant of the state. How not to question authority. Any authority. That includes an out of control homeowner’s association, or an arrogant youth sports commissioner who’s playing favorites. Look at the petty tyrants, foaming at the mouth, who sit on local school boards. And even when a courageous parent steps up and calls them out, the frightened mob sits there silently, and watches as the security guard assaults him/her.
If you can’t stand up to the local school board, which is responsible for implementing lunatic notions like Critical Race Theory and Transgender Story Hour in your children’s schools, then what can you stand up against? A five year old bully who throws sand in your two year old’s face? Instead, we have impotent keyboard warrior types. I don’t just mean talking tough on internet forums. I mean neighbors who call the police because the car next door has an invalid inspection sticker. There are a lot more Americans who are proactive on “Karen” stuff like that. They may not stand up for their kids, but they’ll be giddy with enthusiasm over getting a car ticketed.
Americans, by and large, don’t like to “get involved.” When someone is being assaulted in public, for instance. But they very much like to “get involved” when someone is violating one of the more nonsensical laws we’ve been saddled with. During the COVID psyop, lots of people contacted the authorities to report their neighbors for not wearing their masks, or not “social distancing.” This is the same “get involved” impulse that causes eligible voters to report their neighbors for having an old refrigerator sitting on their back porch or something. Some of the guests on my “I Protest” podcast have talked about how CPS stole their children, with the process being started by a neighbor calling the authorities over concerns of “neglect.”
Now these same upstanding citizens who were so worried over a neighbor’s child being too thin or whatever, wouldn’t have lifted a finger to help that underweight child, if he/she was being physically attacked. That’s the way the mob mentality works. It’s so much easier to make that phone call, and watch the glorious public servants do their thing. Why get your hands dirty? Forget love thy neighbor. It’s not like Child Protective Services has been connected to child sex trafficking or anything. It’s not like the police have demonstrated time and time again that they are far more likely to cause harm than resolve any situation. Just watch the videos.
Most people were pretty apathetic in 1776 as well. The difference is that those Sons of Liberty gathering in taverns, forming Committees of Correspondence, were among the wealthiest men in the colonies. The One Percent of their day. Very few others alive then would have had any fortunes to risk by supporting independence. The idea of secession from England garnered little enthusiasm among the public. Of course, once Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown, things changed considerably. Then all the flag waving and patriotic fervor began. Most people are not only followers, they are bandwagon fans. Everybody loves a winner.
But what we face today is entirely different. A more bloodthirsty and seemingly satanic enemy. An enemy with true weapons of mass destruction. An enemy with the entire media at their beck and call. And not a single wealthy benefactor to inspire us. What about Donald Trump? He’s a One Percenter, isn’t he? I’m chuckling as I write this, but please read everything I’ve written about the man I call Trumpenstein. Besides, he’s too busy cooperating with a thoroughly politicized and corrupted legal system. He’s almost bragging about his steadily increasing number of indictments. And the faces for this latest absurd prosecutorial overreach are three Black women. Unfairly targeting a very rich White man. In the land ruled by “White Supremacy.”
In a country full of hale and hearty masculine souls, the tar and feathering would have begun long ago. If they found they couldn’t vote them out because the process was totally fraudulent, then they would have thrown out those controlling the fraudulent process. As our dear Trump once said, the system is rigged, and you don’t trust those who rigged it to fix it. The good citizens of Georgia are standing idly by while an Affirmative Action appointee gleefully prosecutes Trump for claiming there was fraud in the 2020 election. In the same state where Stacy Abrams complained incessantly that she was robbed in the governor’s race. By vote fraud. So some contested elections in Georgia are more equal than others.
Through a deadly combination of all the chemicals in our food and water, and decades of intense conditioning from Hollywood and the putrid “education” system, males have been beaten down and become soft and compliant. Women, meanwhile, have been become hard and aggressive, but not aggressive towards the overwhelming tyranny engulfing all our lives. Instead, they welcome that tyranny, and become aggressive towards those who object to it. Besides, they’re preoccupied with turning their little boys into little girls. To impress the other brainwashed White mothers. And their husbands are busy with honey-do lists and internet porn.
About 80 percent of Americans “lose” under our casino economy, living paycheck to paycheck, and having little or no savings. Thus, the lottery has assumed a huge role in America 2.0. Tens of millions of those struggling financially dream of winning the big one, even though they know the odds are greater that they’ll be struck by lightning three times in one day. Many have their “lucky” numbers and swear by them, even though they never win. The lottery has supplanted the racetrack and slot machines. Get rich quick schemes have been featured in popular culture going back to The Honeymooners. The average worker knows they will never get rich any other way.
As George Orwell wrote in 1984: “The Lottery, with its weekly pay-out of enormous prizes, was the one public event to which the proles paid serious attention. It was probable that there were some millions of proles for whom the Lottery was the principal if not the only reason for remaining alive. It was their delight, their folly, their anodyne, their intellectual stimulant. Where the Lottery was concerned, even people who could barely read and write seemed capable of intricate calculations and staggering feats of memory. There was a whole tribe of men who made their living simply by selling systems, forecasts, and lucky amulets.” Doesn’t this describe modern ‘Murrica perfectly?
Orwell wrote, “If there was hope, it must lie in the proles, because only there… 85 per cent of the population of Oceania, could the force to destroy the Party ever be generated. The Party could not be overthrown from within. Its enemies, if it had any enemies, had no way of coming together or even of identifying one another….But the proles, if only they could somehow become conscious of their own strength. would have no need to conspire. They needed only to rise up and shake themselves like a horse shaking off flies. If they chose they could blow the Party to pieces tomorrow morning. Surely sooner or later it must occur to them to do it?”
But Orwell described how the Proles were constantly distracted by “petty quarrels with neighbours, films, football, beer, and above all, gambling….To keep them in control was not difficult. A few agents of the Thought Police moved always among them, spreading false rumours and marking down and eliminating the few individuals who were judged capable of becoming dangerous; but no attempt was made to indoctrinate them with the ideology of the Party. It was not desirable that the proles should have strong political feelings. All that was required of them was a primitive patriotism which could be appealed to whenever it was necessary to make them accept longer working-hours or shorter rations.”
Orwell’s Thought Police served the same purpose in Oceana as our government’s undercover agents do now, whether they be from the FBI, local police, or some other “law enforcement” agency. They control the opposition by leading it, as was suggested over a century ago by Lenin. The citizens of America 2.0 don’t really even need these undercover agents to control their movements, because they can’t organize any meaningful opposition without financing and logistical support from the establishment they are supposedly fighting. The last completely organic grass-roots movement was probably the draft riots in New York during the Civil War.
When you can’t even get concerned parents to start a formidable group opposing the tyrannical school boards, what chance do we have of turning out the despicable traitors in Congress, or the courts? Those who enforce this tyranny, at the behest of the real unseen powers behind the scenes, are for all intents and purposes as entrenched in power as the kings, queens, lords, and dukes of yore. America 2.0 has the largest Royal family ever seen; from Hollywood to Washington, D.C. Sure, they have to do a bit more than attend ribbon cutting ceremonies, but not much more. The 80 percent of us who are the losers in this monstrous system are peasants. Although I don’t know what you call those shitting in the street. What’s worse than a peasant?
Among the 80 percent of those losing to chrony capitalism, how many are protesting? On the contrary, most of them will argue in favor of those who are effectively looting them. “Nobody helped me!” They’ll growl. “I worked hard for what I have.” Yeah, but you don’t have anything, genius. Workers at large corporations placidly accept that “we just can’t afford raises this year,” while their top executives are being given millions in tax-free “performance” bonuses. They have no interest in the billions doled out in corporate welfare. Instead, they will rage at those even poorer than themselves, and their food stamps. Exactly like Orwell’s Proles.
There isn’t the slightest trace of rebellious spirit in the vast majority of the American population. You’d think there would be something there, deep down, passed on to them by those who fought in the War for Independence. Surely, those who participated in the Boston Tea Party must have left some descendants. If you won’t fight for your children, what will you fight for? Instead, an untold number of mothers are fighting against their own children, by fantasizing that they are the opposite sex, taking them to drag strip shows, and cheering on the mutilation of their still developing bodies, and the ruination of their lives. Just look at who’s marching. The transgender brigade. Black Lives Matter. Antifa. All fighting for those who rule us, the status quo.
The too often wealthy pastors have been noticeably silent in the face of the cultural filth being spawned by the transgender madness. They’ll still pound their Bibles, and condemn sinners to hell, and make certain to grift for donations, but they just can’t get inspired to organize huge marches and protests against this satanic agenda. In fact, the sinfully rich evangelical leaders could be our last hope. But if they didn’t protest the government unilaterally shutting down churches during the COVID psyop, why would they protest mad mothers and Frankenstein doctors colluding to mutilate children? Instead, they’ll just pick and choose their favorite Biblical passages, which inevitably lead to them pontificating about you going to hell.
COVID demonstrated that nothing could inspire Americans to take to the streets. Unless they were paid by George Soros and company to do so. To paraphrase JFK’s inspiring words in his inaugural address, let every elitist know, despite them wishing us only ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support no friend, oppose only your foes, to assure the survival and the success of your tyrannical authoritarianism. This is essentially what the majority of Americans have sworn to, whether they realize it or not. They have become profiles in cowardice.
Henry David Thoreau had a credo, “simplify, simplify.” No one seems to understand that the solution to our problems is indeed very simple. Those creating and sustaining the problems have a vested interest in portraying them as “complex.” Problems can’t be solved if the only persons in a position to solve them would be negatively impacted by doing so. The wrong people are in charge everywhere. From dog catcher to president. Like the Proles, we have only to display our massive advantage in numbers. They are in control because we let them. We should want to organize the largest collective whipping in the history of the world. Then deportation and exile. Can we be better than the Proles, and finally, at long last, take hold of the reigns of power?
