TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT (Political IDOL-atry)

FASCIST TOTALITARIANISM SEEKS to “REALIZE” MEANING and “fulfillment” through the POLITICAL process.

Individuals do not PURSUE “happiness” – the State PROVIDES it.

Historically, fascists CO-OPT, COMPROMISE, THEN SUBORDINATE traditional religion towards the ENDS of the STATE

Fascism always BLURS the LINE between religion and politics

The STATE CO-OPTS RELIGION SO IT CAN “PLAY GOD”

The “KINGDOM of GOD” becomes the “CITY of MAN”

Spiritual “REBIRTH”, REDEMPTION, RENEWAL  and “REVOLUTION”

The “CULT of PROGRESS” promises a “RE-MADE”  and “NEW” HUMANITY

The WILL to POWER  (playing God)

BETTER to RULE in HELL than to SERVE  in HEAVEN

Karl Popper: “[T]he POWER of the state is bound to increase until the STATE becomes nearly identical with society..

The POWER of the state is the TOTALITARIAN intuition  which embraces ALL social relations, including all personal ones

Human nature is inherently “religious”.

The religious “instinct”is built intoour nature by our Creator – “MEN DO NOT LIVE LONG WITHOUT GODS;

The First Commandment is to worship and serve the ONE true God. The Second Commandment warns against IDOLATRY.

(God substitutes) When humanity ignores the First Commandment, the Second Commandment warning applies.

The“CHOICE” is NOT between “A” religion and “NO” religion.

The choice is between one or an “alternative” or “substitute” god which which can manifest itself in innumerable ways.  The religion of NO religion IS a religion.

“Liberal” religion is arguably the fastest growing “religion” today.  Which “god[s]” WILL you choose to serve? Like the Bob Dylan song says, we ALL “Serve Somebody”.

Helaire Belloc:“MEN DO NOT LIVE LONG WITHOUT GODS”

When the GODS of the NEW PAGANISM come they will not be merely INSUFFICIENT, as were the gods of Greece,

… nor merely FALSE; they will be EVIL

 The“New” worship, FOOLISHLY EXPECTING  satisfaction, will FALL inevitably FALL into IDOL (or satan) WORSHIP”

The IDOL of EQUALITY– the POWER to “LEVEL”

“There exists ALSO in the HUMAN HEART a DEPRAVED TASTE for EQUALITY …

… which IMPELS the WEAK to ATTEMPT to LOWER the POWERFUL to THEIR OWN LEVEL, …

… and REDUCES men …

to PREFER EQUALITY in SLAVERY to IN-EQUALITY with FREEDOM”

– Alexis de Tocqueville

Victor Davis Hanson: “In his famous admonition about the tyranny of the majority, Tocqueville went on to warn that “LIBERTY is NOT the chief and constant object of their desires; EQUALITY is THEIR IDOL.  

They make rapid and sudden efforts to obtain liberty, and if they miss their aim resign themselves to their disappointment; but nothing can satisfy them except equality, and rather than lose it they RESOLVE to PERISH”

If we keep Tocqueville’s advice in mind, we can appreciate why and how the present WAR AGAINST PERSONAL LIBERTY in service to MANDATED EQUALITY may become the GREATEST DANGER of the 21st century

The theaters of battle already extend to EVERY segment of American life; and every weapon is employed, from government coercion to the progressive media to the ORWELLIAN EFFORT to CHANGE the meaning of language itself.  

Millions of Americans have LOST the LIBERTY to select their own type of health insurance, purchased on their own volition to best match their own assessments of their particular needs.

WHO is ELLSWORTH TOOHEY? (from Ayn Rand)

As a committed Neo-Marxist, it would be a mistake to characterize Toohey as a humanist. Toohey certainly DOESN’T CARE about individuals, he cares about groups.

But Toohey doesn’t even care about groups, per se, he cares about POWER

HE CARES ABOUT POWER BECAUSE HE’S LESS INTERESTED in HELPING the “OPPRESSED” THAN IN PUNISHING THE SO-CALLED “OPPRESSOR” …

BRINGING EVERYONE DOWN to the SAME LEVEL of SUFFERING and MEDIOCRITY, RATHER THAN BRINGING EVERYONE UP TO the SAME LEVEL of PROSPERITY and EXCELLENCE

TOOHEY HATES PROSPERITY and EXCELLENCE, BECAUSE IT INHERENTLY LEADS to INEQUALITY

HE DOESN’T WANT EVERYONE TO BE EXCEPTIONAL and WEALTHY, BECAUSE EXCEPTIONALISM and WEALTH are HIS TRUE MORAL ENEMIES.

Villains are not compelling villains unless they BELIEVE themselves to be the HEROES.

And in Toohey’s case, the VILLAIN is INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES, …

and the HERO USHERS in COLLECTIVE SAMENESS

Toohey will NOT REST UNTIL ALL DIFFERENCES HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED

Which can be brought about by no other means than VIOLENCE, that is, the legal violence that the government alone can wield, which is why Toohey is OBSESSED with POWER.

And it can come at no other price than universal OPPRESSION, TYRANNY and the END of FREEDOM, which is why Toohey talks about JUSTICE and EQUALITY INSTEAD of about LIBERTY

Toohey knows that very few people will ever want what he wants, so he introduces Post-Christian morality, what Nietzsche called “SLAVE MORALITY”

The morality of the SLAVE is to OVERTHROW the OPPRESSOR (the WILL to POWER)

FASCIST FREEDOM HATERS

Fascists  pathologically HATE FREEDOM …

… lovers of freedom are HERETICS who MUST be PUNISHED and PERSECUTED for their apostasy and heresies

Their ULTIMATE GOAL is “EQUALITY” in COLLECTIVE CONFORMITY through COERCION, seeking to turn all into SLAVES, FORCING us all to be “FREE” …

The Fascist collective  “WILL to POWER” trumps individual “PURSUIT of HAPPINESS”

The PROGRESSIVE CRUSADE is the RELIGION that says that its ACTIVISTS are called to SAVE the VICTIMS of the world BY POLITICS, by FORCE (the “Will to POWER”)

WHICH AMERICA?

Being a “plural-istic” nation, we have choices.  Since its inception, America has been in a state of “culture war”.  

We all have different “visions” of what “America” IS and SHOULD be.   This has always been the case.

However, today’s “progressive” agenda is one of “STRANGE FIRE“, rooted in disobedience to God and disrespect of God’s principles on which America was founded.  

As a student of history it is FREEDOM vs FASCISM.  

I am a citizen  “child of the free”.  

I “worship” my earthly God-given Natural Rights.  

“They” don’t.

Scripturally, the children of the FLESH will ALWAYS PERSECUTE the children of PROMISE.

The “children of darkness” (fascists) are wiser in this world than the “children of light” (freedom).

Progressives are essentially SPOILED CHILDREN, adolescent, politically-correct “pin-heads” who GO BEYOND DIS-HONORING our nation.

Progressives pathologically seek to DESTROY the past, toward a narcissistic, nihilistic path to “utopian NOWHERE“.

Progressives are totalitarian twits, despotic dimwits, freedom hating fascistspower loving, a-moral political perverts, wolves camouflaged as sheep, liars incapable of facing truth or reality,  ignoring the unintended consequences of their own folly,  a CHILD-ish MENACE to our traditional civil society.  Spiritually bankrupt sociopaths jam their warped political religion of dystopian delusion. 

We are all “victims” of liberal lunacy that persecutes “heretics” who question their pseudo-religious “idolatry” and madness..

But that’s MY OPINION.  That’s your “right” as an “American” to be an IDIOT!  I must respect that on some level.

DYSTOPIAN DE-EVOLUTION  (Crusade of the Clue-less) 

DISBELIEF, DECEPTION, DYSFUNCTION, DESTRUCTION, DYSTOPIA and DEATH

DYSTOPIAN DELUSIONS (Crusade of the “Clue-less”)

Fascist “utopia”  eventually DEVOLVES into DYSTOPIA  – their NARCISSISM and NIHILISM leading us to “NOWHERE”

LIBERAL RELIGION” REPLACES “TRADITIONAL”  RELIGION.  A revolutionary “FAITH in the FUTURE” and “CULT of PROGRESS” promises earthly “SALVATION” and “SATISFACTION”

“PROGRESS” TOWARDS WHAT?

UTOPIA is NOWHERE

ATHEISM ultimately results in NARCISSISM and NIHILISM

 A BLIND FAITH of “LOST SHEEP” LED “NOWHERE“, CAUGHT in the BONDAGE of SELF in a STRAIT-JACKET of SUICIDAL NOTHING-NESS

NOWHERE – The CULT of “PROGRESS”

The word “UTOPIA” LITERALLY means “NOWHERE” in Latin   

The “chase” for utopian “SOMEWHERE” INEVITABLY MORPHS into DYSTOPIA …

“Utopians” are always and eventually un-masked as NARCICISTIC NIHILISTS going NOWHERE in the NAME of “CULT of PROGRESS

Progress – Chesterton called this idea “a rather curious variation of NATURE WORSHIP, which is NOT so much the worship of the SUN or … the thunder-cloud, but the worship of the FOG.  

The progressives cling to the VAGUE MISTS of the “FUTURE”

Critics of utopian “faith” have good reason to be SUSPICIOUS – progress towards WHAT? 

“UTOPIA” literally means “NOWHERE”

Nietzsche went ‘NUTS” – he died a miserable death in an INSANE ASYLUM.  

NATTERING NAYBOBS of NOTHINGNESS …

Nihilists are like NEUROTIC CATS in a BOX CHASING THEIR OWN TAILS AROUND ...

“[T]he ARROGANT AMBITION to TRANSFORM HUMAN NATURE and REMAKE THE WORLD . . . lies the true ancestry of the revolutionary left“  – David Horowitz

“The [“progressive”] THINKER SUPPRESSES an ESSENTIAL ELEMENT of REALITY IN ORDER to be ABLE to CONSTRUCT an IMAGE of MAN, OR SOCIETY, OR HISTORY to SUIT HIS DESIRES”

In order for the LEFT to MAINTAIN THEIR DOGMA, CERTAIN REALITIES MUST BE EXCLUDED from THINKING

We shall not find the answer on the level of theoretic argument; for we have gone beyond reason, one must SUSPEND HUGE CHUNKS of REALITY, EFFECTUALLY DENYING ELEMENTS and EVIDENCE of the CREATED ORDER (SCIENCE), as WELL as REFUSING to SEE the NATURE of HUMANITY and SOCIETY AS THEY REALLY ARE (philosophy and theology)

Chesterton: “Nobody has any business to use the word “progress” UNLESS HE has a DEFINITE CREED and a cast-iron code of morals.”

I MIGHT ALMOST SAY that NOBODY CAN BE PROGRESSIVE WITHOUT BEING INFALLIBLE – AT ANY RATE, WITHOUT BELIEVING IN SOME INFALLIBILITY”

Never perhaps since the beginning of the world has there been an age that had LESS RIGHT to USE the WORD ‘PROGRESS’ THAN WE.”  

“If we are to stop the transition toward THIS IMPOSSIBLE UTOPIAN WORLD we must first AWAKEN and FACE the REALITY and seriousness of the situation our nation and the world are in.

NIHILISM feeds the NARCISSISM which eventually feeds NONSENSE which leads to NOWHERE …

“[“PROGRESSIVES”] are being used to ENGINEER GREAT and NEEDED CHANGESand to ALTER the face of CIVILIZATION.  

They are the agents of destiny, the CREATORS of the NEW ORDER and the INITIATORS of the NEW CIVILIZATION … the DESTROYERS of what must be destroyed BEFORE HUMANITY CAN GO FORWARD along the lighted way.

The NEW AGE movement, like the political UTOPIANS of the 20th century,  seeks a “PERFECT WORLD” balanced by ECONOMIC, POLITICAL, and SPIRITUAL UNITY and HARMONY”. – Paul Johnson

The WORLD STATE, GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP and PLANETARY SPIRITUALITY merges into the “PERFECT centralized” SYSTEM”.

The search for “BETTER” makes things WORSE … (utopia=dystopia)

UTOPIAN-DYSTOPIANS show the power of WISHFUL THINKING and DELUSION (the REJECTION of REALITY) we are ALL susceptible to …the human capacity to DECEIVE and be DECEIVED, to be CONFUSED, FOOLED … AGAIN.  The “lost” sheep fail to recognize they are lost …

Life is “TRAGIC”, NOT “UTOPIAN” in our current “fallen” state …

Yet “progressives” are DANGEROUS in their superficial, shallow, even stupid “FUNDAMENTALIST” world view … IGNORING REALITY …

Liberalism is the world’s moral-political PETER PAN complex.  It is NARCISSISM arrayed in UTOPIAN longings.  It believes that the wisdom that once fueled our civilization was merely a shattered stepping stone to its own bloodless ideal of perfection.

“The THINKER SUPPRESSES AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF REALITY IN ORDER to be ABLE to CONSTRUCT an IMAGE of MAN, OR SOCIETY, OR HISTORY to SUIT HIS DESIRES”

Slavic Socrates: “I’m tired of being told by fools I am a fool for a “blind faith” in a God of “wishful thinking”.  Told by fools full of blind DIS-faith that worship a god of NOTHINGNESS.  Fools with a PERVERTED HEART of DIS-BELIEF that tell me that SOMETHING is NOTHING.”

I read somewhere that men “prefer darkness rather than light”.  These “PERVERTS” are PARASITES on MEANING and SOMETHING.  It takes “meaning” to comprehend “meaningLESSness”, “something” to realize “nothing-ness”.   Ultimately, nihilism is DENIAL of EVERYTHING, which is ultimately “nothing”, … which ...

Nihilists are like NEUROTIC CATS in a box CHASING their OWN TAILS around ...

POWER lovers MUST RULE HELL – BETTER to RULE HELL than SERVE in HEAVEN.

PROGRESSIVE HEAVEN on EARTH ALWAYS LEADS to DYSTOPIAN HELL … human device divorced from GOD’s “REALITY”

Solzhenitzyn warned us of  “VIRTUE” CAMOUGLAGED in human “VICE” …

TOTALITARIANS always seek to RE-MAKE “The GARDEN” (or their human version of it) and end up with “The GULAG” 

 

Humanity attempts to build “TOWERS of BABEL”,  to “PLAY GOD” , in brazen REBELLION of GOD and vain REJECTION of HUMAN LIMITATIONS that IGNORE human “SIN-fulness”.  

Our hypocritical masks hide the fact we are NOT GOD.  

Our vanities end in CONFUSION and OPPRESSION

CRUSADE of DESTRUCTION

APOLLYON is the ancient anti-GOD of DESTRUCTION …

The PAST MUST BE DESTROYED

… ANYTHING “EXCEPTIONAL” that could get in the way of  BUILDING a DELUSIONAL, DYTOPIAN FUTURE

ALL “HERETICS” AGAINST the CRUSADE of “POLITICAL CORRECT-ness) MUST BE PUNISHED and CONFORMED … or DESTROYED …

Liberal progressive religion DEMONIZES and DESTROYS “HERETICS”, “ENEMIES of the GOD-STATE”,  EVIL in their refusal to be “POLITICALLY CORRECT” in THEIR “CRUSADE”, attend the liberal CHURCH of WISHFUL THINKING, and worship at the ALTAR of DELUSION

“VICTIMS” USE (fake) OPPRESSION as an EXCUSE to PUNISH OPPOSING ‘OPPRESSORS” …

CIVICS OLD (“SALVATION”)  vs  CRUSADE NEW (“SUICIDE”)

DOES AMERICA HAVE a MORE  OR LESS PERSISTING HISTORICAL IDENTITY, OR IS IT, AS the PLURALISTS INSIST, a BLANK SLATE – TO BE WIPED OFFand WRITTEN OVER A FRESH by EACH NEW GENERATION?

“Multiculturalism” is another front in the EXCEPTIONALISM vs LEVEL-ers WAR. The “Exceptional” seek to preserve, maintain and restore the UNIQUE “BLESSING” of American “civilization” and traditions past.  

“Level-ers” seek “equality” by erasing and demeaning past achievement. the “history, achievements, aspirations and concerns of people of all cultures [shall be] made an integral part of all curricula.”

AMERICAN “EXCEPTIONALITY” is a CURSE that must be ELIMINATED and ERASED in the progressive “CRUSADE” and “CULT” of “PROGRESS”

Since “EUROPEAN AMERICAN” CULTURE is by definition EXCLUSIVE and OPPRESSIVE, 

it obviously CANNOT COEXIST with the “OPPRESSED” cultures that seek EQUALITY with it …

until it has been STRIPPED of its HYPOCRITICAL PRETENSIONS to UNIVERSALITY and LEGITIMACY – 

i.e., until, as a NATIONAL CULTURE, it has CEASED to EXIST

The “IDOL of EQUALITY”demands sacrificial LEVELING of the SINS of EXCEPTIONALITY (IN-equalty) past

IN-EQUALITY = IN-JUSTICE

It’s PURSUIT of EXCELLENCE vs. the PATHOLOGY of EQUALITY 

It’s “PATRIOTS” vs “PROGRESSIVES”

AMERICA “RESTORED” (EXCEPTIONAL)  VS   AMERICA RE-MADE (LEVELED “EQUAL”)

DECEPTION (Camouflaging the Crusade)

“There are some LIES hat lodge so DEEP in the HOPES of men that they can NEVER be KILLED no matter how many are EXECUTED to make the LIE TRUE.

DECEPTION is INHERENT to the Progressive CRUSADE and CAUSE (the ends justifies the means)

The CRUSADE is CAMOUFLAGED to HIDE its DANGEROUS, DESTRUCTIVE DELUSIONS …

SOLZHENITSYN – WARNINGS to the WEST

“I would like to call upon America to be more CAREFUL with its TRUST to prevent those pundits who are attempting to establish fine degrees of JUSTICE and even finer legal shades of EQUALITY  …

to PREVENT them from USING the struggle for peace and SOCIAL JUSTICE to lead you down a FALSE ROAD.

They are TRYING to WEAKEN YOU; they are trying to DISARM your STRONG and MAGNIFICENT country …

Communism is history’s ultimate “BAIT and SWITCH” …

COLLECTIVE “NON-SENSE” replacing INDIVIDUAL “COMMON SENSE”  … diabolical deception (fooled … again) … “hopes” manipulated into hopelessness promising “heaven” (the “GARDEN”, producing “GULAGS”

The Progressive Crusade demands a pathological “LEVEL-ing” of all into the EQUALITY of MISERY

(HELL) rather than allow anyone to exercise their God-given free will to SERVE in “heaven”.

BETTER SLAVES (“rulers”) in HELL than SERVANTS (“righteous”) in HEAVEN

The PROGRESSIVE CRUSADE, a LIBERAL RELIGION SUBSTITUTING ITSELF for the REAL GOD …

REVIVAL?  –  REVOLUTION? (ANASTASIOS)   

The website Anastasios-USA.com is an extension of HistoryXtreme.com.

HistoryXtreme seeks to go “Beneath and Beyond” – Anastasios-USA seeks to go “Beneath and Beyond” HistoryXtreme,

GOD is the ultimate “Beneath and Beyond”.    God is the ALPHA, beginning-beneathand OMEGA. end-beyond.

HistoryXtreme.com has that implicit,  “undercurrent” of God’s “FINGERPRINTS”in history.

Anastasios-USA.com makes God’s “HAND” in history explicit and factually obvious.

AnastasiosUSA.com unabashedly delves into the “spiritual” aspect of human history, which truly is HIS-story.  “Time” meets “eternity”.  God is the ETERNAL “substance”that lays at the foot of the human “shadow”of TEMPORAL history.

Screw the skeptics, God’s “FINGERPRINTS” and “HAND” are all over HIS-story, specifically my earthly nation, the United States.

Any attempt at HIS-story that ignores God’s reality is doomed to be IN-COMPLETE.  Only a fool says there is no God. (Psalm 14) GOD’s DESIGN and PURPOSE stares us in the face to those not blind.

Whether you or any past or present American believes in God or not, America was “BLESSED”,  founded on SPIRITUAL principals which made it “EXCEPTIONAL”.  

The GOD of “ISRAEL” was “X-ceptional”, not the flawed, sinful,  idol-worshipping “Israel-ites” themselves, who were-are God’s “tools” of history and God’s redemption plan.

Our history and politics flow out of our  “culture war”, which is part of a larger religious, spiritual “cosmic conflict” essentially between those who EITHER ACCEPT or REJECT AMERICAN “EXCEPTIONALISM” and its “blessings” and “burdens”, sourced in “The God of Israel” and “KING JESUS”!

“REDEMPTION”?

“Redemption” is a form of “rescue“.  We are confronted with the “problems” of life, the “drama” (conflicts) of existence.

Humanity is an “amphibian” living in multiple “dimensions” – caught between both the material, concrete world of “flesh and blood” and a dimension of spirit and ideals, aware of how things “should be”.

The need for “rescue” and “redemption” is an inherent part of human existence. We all need “a little help from our ‘friends’”.

Now we live in (trapped in) “TIME”, but are destined for “ETERNITY”.  We are ALL part “creatures”, “citizens”and “children of God“, all stuck together here in what we call  “history”.

Whether you believe in God or not, that is matter of “conscience” between you and God.

BUT when others, specifically my fellow “Americans”,  “jam” their secular “religion” (“strange fire”)  down our throats, I take umbrage.  It is written to HONOR your parents – you don’t even have to “like”, let alone “love” them.

This principle applies my “nation” – the United States.

Being a “plural-istic” nation, we have choices.  Since its inception, America has been in a state of “culture war”.

We all have different “visions” of what “America” IS and SHOULD be.

This has always been the case.

However, today’s “progressive” agenda is one of “STRANGE FIRE“, rooted in ignorance, disobedience to God and disrespect of God’s principles on which America was founded.

As a historian it is FREEDOM vs FASCISM.  I am a citizen “child of the FREE”.   I “worship” my earthly God-given Natural Rights.  They don’t.

Scripturally, the children of the FLESH will ALWAYS PERSECUTE the children of PROMISE.

The “children of darkness” (fascists) are wiser in this world than the “children of light” (freedom).

Progressives are essentially SPOILED CHILDREN, adolescent, politically-correct “pin-heads” who GO BEYOND DIS-HONORING our nation.

Progressives pathologically seek to DESTROY the past, toward a narcissistic, nihilistic path to “utopian NOWHERE

Progressives are totalitarian twits, despotic dimwits, freedom hating fascistspower loving, a-moral political PERVERTS, WOLVES camouflaged as sheep, liars incapable of facing truth or reality,  ignoring the unintended consequences of their own FOLLY,  a CHILD-ish MENACE to our traditional civil society.  

Spiritually bankrupt sociopaths jam their warped political religion of dystopian delusion. 

We are all “victims” of liberal lunacy that persecutes “heretics” who question their pseudo-religious “idolatry” and madness.

But that’s MY OPINION.  That’s your “right” as an “American” to be “WRONG” – an IDIOT! 

I must respect that on some level.

Political “CORRECT-ness” is TOTALITARIAN EVIL and IDOL-atry.  

Political IN-correctness ACCEPTS your RIGHT to be WRONG!

AMERICANS are NEED of NATIONAL “RE-BIRTH” (“anastasios”) in appreciation and THANKS for GOD’s “EXCEPTIONAL” BLESSINGS, PROVIDENCE and GUIDANCE! 

Do “progressive” disrespecters and destroyers of “Exceptional” America  “respect” our “opinions” or world view?  

If one cannot HONOR their OWN GOD, parents or nation, CAN YOU EXPECT THEM to “HONOR” ANYTHING?  

To the fascist “children of disobedience”, NOTHING is SACRED.

NOBODY is SAFE”                                                                                                                                                

The children of PROMISE-FREEDOM have ALWAYS been PERSECUTED by the fascist children of FLESH-SLAVERY.   

“This world is not my home, I’m just a passing through.”  My ultimate destination is the “City-Kingdom of God”, but I’m temporarily “stuck” in the “City of Man”, stuck with a bunch of “clue-less” citizens unwittingly bent on what John Adams warned us about –  “There has neverdemocracy that has not committed SUICIDE.”  

I am fighting the God-less fools and politically clue-less totalitarian twits leading us to NATIONAL SUICIDE.

God Help Us LOST SHEEP. “I get on my knees and pray, we don’t get FOOLED … AGAIN” …

Is there a WAY OUT of this mess, our current “predicament”?    “Redemption” as we head towards inevitable dystopian disaster and SELF-destruction?   

The Chinese proverb “May you live in interesting times” was a CURSE.  Not to sound melo-dramatic, but our country is in a life or death struggle.  We live in an “interesting” time that is a COMBINATION of EVERY conflict our nation has faced– Revolutionary War, Civil War, the Great Wars, Great Depression, Cold War and “Jihad”.

It took seeming “miracles” for America to be founded in the first place and survive all of our national historical disasters.  So why should we be “”surprised”  our current “predicament” would be any different?

Is the story of “ISRAEL” simply REPEATING ITSELF – God’s Promises, Exodus (escape), the “Promised Land”, betrayal-idol worship, exile, God’s grace, mercy and SPIRITUAL RESTORATION and RE-BIRTH (“anastasios”) to “His Covenant People”, the “SAINTS”,  receiving God’s promised “Blessings” DESPITE them/ourselves?

Slavic Socrates attempts to restore HONOR and “HISTORY” and TELL the “forgotten” TRUTH  about AMERICA and its SPIRITUAL FOUNDATIONS

FREEDOM vs FASCISM

Sincerely, Slavic Socrates

P.S.

FASCISM: Then and TODAY – 

“PROLOGUE”

FASCISM seeks COLLECTIVE “salvation”, eventually producing a TOTALITARIAN society of ONE, single, “organic” “WHOLE” benefiting ALL, COMPLETE CONFORMITY allowing no “separateness”.

Fascism promises UTOPIA through THIS-worldly political “REBIRTH”, redemption and realization of “meaning”, “solutions” to never ending “CRISIS”, overcome with revolutionary “CRUSADES” of “ACTION” of “social justice” based on their own “WILL to POWER”, instincts and feelings, which typically produce reactionary tantrums by “heretics” who seek limitations on their power and/or critically question fascist utopian lack of “reason”, “reality” and/or DYSTOPIAN RESULTS. (“tragic” UNintended consequences)

Totalitarian, all powerful GOD-STATES use political-religion to promise “heaven on earth”.Mussolini said “fascism IS a religion”. Fascists purposely mix and confuse politics and religion, Government and God, co-opting “God” in their pursuit of political POWER, a POLITICAL RELIGION OF government idol worship.

The sheep-like masses, contemptible “clingers” and “deplorables”, require leadership by an elite “enlightened” political governing ruling class and/or messianic “CULT of PERSONALITY” (“gods” IN government).

Contemptuous of freedom and democratic self-government,the “god OF government” seeks to SOCIALLY ENGINEER utopian “political paradise” through “science” and an evolutionary “Cult of “Progress”.

A utopian FUTURE requires INDOCTRINATION of YOUTH and CENSORSHIP of anything contradicting politically correct conformity, preventing eventual totalitarian control on ALL aspects of society, propagated and proselytized by elite media “priests” and educational “seminaries”.

Utopian idealism requires total elimination of anything old & corrupt, erasing past history, destroying politically INcorrect dogmas, and/or persecuting non-utopian “heretics” (“tragic” realist “phobes”) which question and PREVENT the “CULT of PROGRESS” and necessary transformational change “we can ALL believe in”.

FASCISM Rubric: #1-The Collective #2-Rebirth #3-Crisis & Crusade #4-Action #5-Politics as Religion #6-Contempt for Democracy #7-The Cult of Personality #8-Social Engineering #9-Youth #10-Censorship #11- Fascist Economics

FASCISM DEFINED – a Rubric

Fascism #1) COMMUNITY and the “COLLECTIVE”
Fascism is a quest for community – the collective “ it takes a VILLAGE”. Fascism seeks UNIFORMITYand CONFORMITYthrough collectiveCRUSADE, collective political religion – the god of government and state, sacrificing individual freedoms to secure collective “UTOPIA”. Fascism is hostile to anything outside the collective – the individual, a potential “heretic” or enemy of the state or FAMILY, anything that might resist their “CULT” of collective “PROGRESS”.TOTALITARIANsociety is one ORGANIC whole – your home, private thoughts, everything no realm of human life (from food, sex, entertainment)NOTHING is beyond collective POLITICAL meaning. Mob manipulation, control and conformity, censorship, propaganda and indoctrination all produce an “organic” collective political “CORRECTNESS”,tolerating NO islands of SEPARATENESS.

#2 – “REBIRTH”
Fascism promises“rebirth”, expressed as a revolutionary FAITH in thefuture, towards a utopianNEW age.  The CULT of “PROGRESS”, “CHANGE”and the possibilities of TRANSFORMATION is invoked.  A“NEW” man, earth & societybuilding “earthly paradise” is possible.  Fascists  “IMAGINE” or RE-INVENT REALITY, which is viewed as EXTERIOR “SOCIAL CONSTRUCTS” that can be“RE-MADE”.  Utopian “redemption” is gained by destroyingthe past. It is pathologically necessary to reject and deconstruct the old to build the new.

#3) CRISIS-CRUSADE: MOBILIZING SOCIETY like an ARMY
A core value of crisis is the imposition of WAR valueson society. The sense of crisis and CRUSADE brings conformity, regimentation and unity of purpose that mobilizes people into progressive action. Crisis is a TOOLfor “progress”. Crisis-conflict-struggle prohibits ordinary rules of behavior. Crisis-conflict-struggle provides “opportunity” that is to create UNITY of “CRUSADE” (“holy” war),requiring (not “wasting”) re-organization of the collective towards building utopian paradise in its “holy war”. CONFORMITYis ensured by mobilizing MOBS– totalitarian TERRORclaimed as “SOCIAL JUSTICE”, a EXTRA-ORDINARY CAUSE against CONSPIRACY by “the ENEMY”to destroy “progress” and “utopia” of the secular “god-state”.

#4: “ACTION” – The “WILL to POWER
“Action” becomes a “romantic”REBELLION AGAINST “REASON”,often the glorification of VIOLENCEand TERROR, a “WILL to POWER” engaged towards “progress” and “holy” cause – SOCIAL JUSTICE, commanding politically correct, totalitarian conformity, by ANY MEANS NECESSARY. Fascist community, cause and crisis all UNITE into action – CRUSADE. (e.g. state sponsored propaganda, scapegoating, witch-hunts). “HERETICAL” THINKING becomes a “HATE CRIME” that must be terrorized and terminated, before the “cancer” spreads. Terror and “HUMAN SACRIFICE” both cleanses “in-organic” impurities and promotes fascist unity of the “organic” whole. The Cult of “Action” pits “FEELING” VS “FACTS”.Fascists are consumed by PASSION, FEELINGS, EMOTION and the WILL and POWER – the ENDS JUSTIFY the MEANS. “Action” often becomes a TEMPER TANTRUM, an adolescent expression of the WILL to POWER against “adult” logic, reason and wisdom, crusade against the traditional, corrupt, un-holy pastexpressed in the “CULT of YOUTH”. A SPOILED CHILD is despot-ic, never satisfied, intolerant, uncompromising, useless and “clue-less”.
Once “enemy” opposition is actively crushed, the fascist “revolution” then usually “EATS its OWN” in its own BLOOD-LUST and insatiable, never ending WILL to POWER.

#5) POLITICS (the State) a RELIGION:Totalitarian Heaven On Earth
The fascist state becomes the MONSTER “LEVIATHAN”: GOD & GOVERNMENT become ONE – MIXING secular & sacred.
The CITY-STATEtakes on “ULTIMATE MEANING”(becomes “god”).  POLITICAL IDOL-ATRY brings utopian “RE-BIRTH” and “COLLECTIVE SALVATION“.  “Fascism is a Religion” – Mussolini Fascist government is an expression of UTOPIAN “FAITH” in SECULAR “SALVATION”, the creation of “HEAVEN ON EARTH” through the CULT of political “PROGRESS”.  Fascism CO-OPTS, COMPROMISES, then SUBORDINATES traditional religion, towards STATE SUPREMACY OVER CHURCH. Freedom of conscience is sacrificed for fascist conformity. It is NATION WORSHIP– government “realizes” meaning and “fulfillment”. “Heretics” do/can not PURSUE happiness – the State PROVIDES it.
Ironically, the individual SACRIFICES “SELF” in the TRIBAL “IDOLATRY” of the totalitarian state-polis, in an act of ultimate political “self-WORSHIP”.

#6 – CONTEMPT for DEMOCRACY
FASCISM generally is a REACTION against DYSFUNCTIONAL and “MESSY” democracy, a REACTION against“democracy gone mad”that resulted in “dystopia”. Fascists presented a “THIRD WAY” – TRANSCENDING“selfish, corrupt” politics of “rights” that ignored collective “responsibilities”, a SUPERIORform of social organization BEYONDpopular, elected self-government, promising to be more democratic than parliamentary representative republican-ism, providing people’s wants without having them vote for it.

#7 – The “GREAT”LEADER – CULT of PERSONALITY
Fascist leadership is based on the idea of an ELITE who KNOWS what the people NEED, NOT what they WANT. The “great leader” is the AUTHORITY or “FATHER” who “knows BEST/BETTER” than the ruled know themselves. Not responsible to an electorate, “great” rulers understood and represented the “will” of the people and nation (the “ruled”). A Cult of Personality uses rhetoric and propaganda to exaggerate the importance, necessity & CONTROL of the leader.  The “promise” – “PROGRESS”;the “price”- “sell your soul”. (hiding a will to POWER – “FOOLED AGAIN” by “BAIT and SWITCH”? (confusing “progress” and POWER, PUBLIC good with PERSONAL gain/interest).  The DEMOGOGUE is the master MANIPULATOR and “IDOL” of the political MASSES.

#8 – SOCIAL ENGINEERING
An all-powerful (totalitarian) state GOVERNMENT CO-ORDINATES “PROGRESS”.  “SCIENCE”and SOCIAL planning PROMISE to “IMPROVE” the human condition.

“REDEMPTION” and “SALVATION” could only be achieved collectively by all-powerful (TOTALITARIAN) state GOVERNMENT, BUREAUCRACY being superior to “dysfunctional” democracy, POWER CONCENTRATED in “SUPERIOR” government ELITES).  

“SCIENTIFIC” social engineering has a UTOPIAN “FAITH” in “MODERNITY” and the PERFECT-ibility of HUMANITY towards “progress”, the POSSIBILITY of earthly utopian “paradise”. Final “SOLUTIONS” to humanity’s seeming “tragic” limitations and stubborn, never-ending “PROBLEMS”.  

FAITH in “FIXING” the PAST – RE-CREATING the “FUTURE”.

#9) OBSESSION with YOUTH (CULT)
The CULT of CHILD is the fascist quest for the NEW MAN and society THROUGH the CHILDREN, where ALL feel the warm and loving embrace of the god-state, which starts from the CRADLE until the GRAVE. Children were the UTOPIAN FUTURE.  

Hitler required and sought a REVOLT AGAINST REASON for “[i]ntellect has poisoned our people”. Hitler rejoiced that he STOLE the hearts and minds of youth, transforming universities into incubators of non-critical activism for the Fatherland.  

CAMOUFLAGE was KEY – do and say whatever it takes to gain POWER. The youthMUST WREST CONTROL (POWER) of society from their elders.Schools become INCUBATORS of REVOLUTIONARY SOCIAL ACTION, REJECTINGthe “cold logic”of their PARENTS and “CORRUPT” TRADITIONS of society PAST.  Youthful “genius” and “originality” was superior to ‘old”, traditional WISDOM. 

Utopian Political CORRECTNESS would “CURE” the CORRUPTION of the dystopian PAST. The Youth would lead unto collective “SALVATION”.

#10 – Fascist CENSORSHIP
Censorship, government limits and CONTROL of INFORMATION is required towards “desired” state-group goals. Expression resisting group “progress”, disagreement and/or dissent against desired, “POLITICALLY CORRECT” goals of the state, must be ELIMINATED. Anything outside or in opposition to god-state “orthodoxy” was HERETICAL.   

State control of media and education is used to STIFLE DISSENT and DEBATEand promote orthodoxy and conformity state-dictated utopian goals.  

Building utopia does not tolerate “competition” – heretical “conspiracy” and “crisis” required “action” (censorship) to PROTECT the political collective FAITH in “PROGRESS.Political correctness and MOB conformity (e.g. scapegoatingdemonizing, “witch hunts“) stops debate/division, to ensure uniformity, control & conformity.

#11 – Fascist ECONOMICS
Fascists seek non-Marxist SOCIALISM – aSTATE DOMINATED economy, a “THIRD WAY” for the ‘forgotten man’ and masses BETWEENthe “selfish/chaotic” dogma of “free market” CAPITALISMand the impersonal, cruel and unforgiving command economy of COMMUNISM

The FASCIST (Faust-ian?) BARGAIN promised STABILITY and “SECURITY” in exchange for absolute SUBSERVIENCEand loyalty to the purposes of the fascist STATE, which eventually dominates BOTH politics (“the people”) and economics (business), An ingenious, devious and deceptive “BAIT and SWITCH”, fascist big government RHETORICALLY claims CLASS WARFARE, “protecting” the masses from rich “fat cats”, while in REALITY COLLUDING with big business, using CRONY-CAPITALISM to limit risk, chaos and competition from small business competitors. 

Unlike communism, profit is allowed. The state dispenses favors for the “public good”, picking “winners and losers” in it’s collective political “will to power”.   CORPORATE, big business sells out FREEDOM in exchange for SECURITY– accepting state regulation, domination and control in return for guaranteed profits and “protection” from the small-scale, common “forgotten man” and free market competition.

This is done despite the rhetoric of the POPULIST “PROTECTION” against “fat cats”. (e.g. “Main Street” vs “Wall Street”) The fascist state DIVIDES and CONQUERS both MASSES and BIG-CORPORATED BUSINESS by MANIPULATING BOTH AGAINST EACH OTHER.

The fascist state creates and promotes the very thing it professes to be against.

We are “Fooled AGAIN”.
