The Unraveling

It’s unfortunate that our country had to get to this point, but the end of our current “progressive” nightmare is near. The free fall of the Dow has exposed the fragility of the economy; the Planned Parenthood debacle has exposed the ugly truth about abortion; the self inspections and recent SAM purchases by Iran have exposed the sheer stupidity of our foreign policy; the Black Lives Matters movement has exposed the failure of liberal social justice policies; and the Hillary email and IRS scandals have exposed the dishonesty of progressive Democrats. It’s all unraveling on every front, right in front of our eyes, let’s hope conservatives can seize the day.

    It is to be hoped – but I note that the DOW futures are up 350 or so…but, China is down another 6% so far today. Things actually do suck and are going to get a lot worse before they get better.

    “Things actually do suck and are going to get a lot worse before they get better.”
    Unfortunately so Mr. Noonan and globally. If you know a good prayer for courage and comfort to the many millions who will be impacted, now would be a good time. The abject, criminal failure of these debt inflated economies is what had to happen in order for people to see how fraudulent and precarious, how falsely inflated they really were and how they had been lied to. And, as Cluster notes, it can be directly attributed to Progressive and Socialist policies and what happens when they run out of other peoples money. But this time we don’t have the backstops, the Fed can’t lower interest rates, quantitative easing didn’t work, there can be no TARP bailout and we don’t have the industries, agriculture and exports that brought us out of the “great depression”. We’d all better learn something about farming, hunting, preserving and protecting our homes and neighborhoods. There will be no better opportunity afforded to our enemies both foreign and domestic than at this time under this administration, so the economy may be one of the least of our worries. One thing that has always gotten this nation through the roughest of times is that when the chips are really down, Christians, Patriots, Hero’s, Americans remember who and where they are.

      Read an article on The New Republic this evening which wonders if the only problem with the USSR is that it didn’t have the internet – you know, the ability to really mine data and thus figure out what people really should have. Progressives will never, ever figure it out – because if they ever do, they immediately cease to be Progressives.

        It’s a good article but it talks about capitalism when much of what we are dealing with is the failure of corporate facism, corruption of our elected representatives at all levels and the destruction caused by public sector unions on all levels. Of course it assumes that Progressives would do the right thing for the people if they possessed all the data to know what it was. But remember they see the rest of us as too stupid to know or decide what is best for ourselves and statistics would be unlikely to change that.

    This is an excellent article on an issue that we have spoken at length about here at B4V:

    http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2015/08/yes_take_a_look_at_yourself_ruling_class.html#ixzz3jpNWg4YM

    Our clueless ruling class spends thirty years forcing banks to flood the country with “affordable housing” mortgages, and then blames the bankers when the bubble bursts.

    Our clueless ruling class spends half a century flooding the west with immigrants and playing identity politics with them. Then it is shocked, shocked when the voters start flocking to candidates that promise to put a stop to it.

      Cluster, from you AT article:

      And the clerisy decided that it knew better than the bourgeoisie. With its power and politics it would protect the poor helpless lower class from the ravening capitalist beast that… oh, wait, the ravenous capitalist beast was enriching the lower classes like nothing before in history.

      That is the basic disconnect in the modern world. Our ruling class is proudly trying to protect people from the very thing that is transforming them from poverty into affluence.

      No wonder it sucks.

      Describes the disconnect to a T.

      Mark’s New Republic article ends with:

      Postcapitalism is still one revolution away.

      I’d reverse that to the quest to destroy capitalism is still one revolution away from being defeated – AGAIN.

      What Marxists and other anti-capitalists regularly fail to grasp is that, in general, capitalists are smarter, more cunning, harder workers, better armed and better anchored in reality than their adversaries. Another revolution isn’t going to end capitalism tomorrow any more than it did in Russia in 1917. The best it can hope for is a few generations of misery and dispair while the elitists sit in their dachas and eat caviar.

      I agree with Shawn — the next revolution may well be fought against ” corporate fascism, corruption of our elected representatives at all levels and the destruction caused by public sector unions on all levels.”

    We need to understand that there are different levels of the Left. One, the one most hidden, is the true face of Leftism, the callous and calculating leaders, the puppeteers if you will. This is the level of Leftism that makes the cold-blooded calculations—that starving twenty million people will ensure retention of power, that shifting the concept of Americans into the concept of tribalism such as disparate races or economic groups and then turning them against each other will ensure retention of power, that flooding the nation with dependents (Cloward and Pivens) will ensure retention of power. This is the level of Leftism that pulls the strings of the Complicit Agenda Media, that overlooks things like the NBP openly putting bounties on the heads of white Americans, etc.

    Below this is the next tier of Lefties, the mindless drones such as the intellectual cannon fodder we see here every now and then, trying to blast their way into the blog to stridently screech the memorized propaganda they have been fed. They have been attracted to the Left not because of its true message of the collective over the individual but because it validates their personality disorders of hate and resentment and need to dominate others and tells them these are proofs of superiority.

    But the Left really only has power because of its skill in propaganda, in emotionally manipulating people into accepting the facade the Left presents of caring “for the PEOPLE”. These people, the vast majority of those who vote Dem, can be, and are, routinely brainwashed into believing that up is down, in is out, backwards is forwards. These are the people who, as the woman Spook told us about, agree that Hillary can’t be trusted, but should be president “because she knows how to get things done”. These are the people who have been suckered into believing that butchering sentient but helpless human beings is really nothing more than “reproductive health” for women. These are the people who feel good when they vote to hand out OPM, but aren’t willing to do the heavy lifting of thinking about how this does not add to human dignity but diminishes it.

    Only the first group is motivated by ideology—that, and lust for power. The second group, the howling mob of collective personality disorders masquerading as political pundits, is noisy but overall nothing but annoying. It is the mindless emotion-driven but immensely powerful third level of Leftism that is the danger, because they have the numbers to control the votes, and therefore the nation.

    What I don’t know is how long the big group, the one with the votes/power but blind to the underlying ideology and basically not motivated by hate but by a misplaced desire to do good, will be able to tolerate the ever-more-blatant abuses of human dignity and decency, and continue supporting it with their money and their votes. This is the group that squeezes its eyes shut and puts its hands over its ears and refuses to acknowledge the ugly truths outlined in the thread post–not because they don’t care if babies suffer torture as they are butchered, not because they advocate dishonesty, not because they want the county weakened or destroyed, not because they consciously want millions treated as livestock and bred and fed to produce votes, not because they think having millions in Israel and the United States nuked into oblivion is OK, but because they are so comfortable in the cocoon of lies the Left has spun around them that they aren’t willing to do the work, and take the risks, of looking at reality. And then doing something.
