I think today we are seeing capitalism’s end game.
We are seeing raw, unbridled greed running wild.
It has now lost even the desire to pretend anything it does is for the common good.
Capitalism is Fascism’s cousin. The world we see today didn’t simply happen. It’s the end result of a long, ugly, well planned and executed process.
You don’t need to be really smart, or well educated to understand what is going on today. You need to be able to read at a ninth or tenth-grade reading level. That’s the reading level that most newspapers and journalists aim for. You don’t need to be particularly bright, you need to be able to seek information and read and comprehend that information.
Fake news, whataboutism, these are tools of the fascist from the 1930s. I don’t care what your party affiliation is, I don’t care who you believe in who you don’t believe because there’s not a whole hell of a lot out there to actually believe in, but if you read and study just a little bit you will see exactly what is happening.
Fake news, division, unbelievable lies, the discrediting of long standing institutions. The thought – “just believe me, just trust me”
This is Webster’s definition of Fascism:
often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.
Read it, use your own mind.
In the words of the great Marvin Gaye,
You tell me what’s going on…
