The Ultimate Socialist Revolution is Being Spun and Run in Reverse and Applauded By Useful Idiots

“Obama, Brown Call for Global Solution to Economic Crisis”
from the first paragraph of the story:
“US President Barack Obama joined British Prime Minister Gordon Brown today in calling for a global solution to the economic crisis and both leaders vowed to repair their countries’ shattered financial systems.”
And now a little bit more distant piece of history….
“We are opposed to national enmity and discord, to national exclusiveness. We are internationalists. “
-28 December, 1919, Lenin, Letter to the Workers and Peasants of the Ukraine, Source: Lenin’s Collected Works, 4th English Edition, Progress Publishers, Moscow, 1965, Volume 30, pages 291-297
Are we really that far apart?
I think not but history has a way of perverting itself in the grand scheme just when the “advanced” nations think they know and see all. Just what if the great American experiment ended as a comedy show instead of a tragedy? We have always elected to view ourselves as a sitcom, a piece of Americana where the hilarious Al Bundyesque ending always seemed to concluded every tragedy no matter what with a laugh track and a miracle, because heck, we’re American by gummit and that’s how it is! Of course no one ever asked:
What if the final joke is on us?
What is the reaction of the American public when they wake up from their American Idol slumber and realize that everything they believed in, the system they have been told was safe, the world they knew, ended.
Just pain, agony and “solutions” proposed by those in power but this time instead of a populist from the back of a train en route from Berlin to Moscow, on a television screen and via the internet from Washington, DC with the power that the Bolsheviks could only have fantasized about in their day and age. A geopolitical monster with military and financial reaches that would shake the roots of hell into panic and cause all to tremble in its wake. Is that what we are facing now?
In the 1900’s an oligarch, the Czar of Russia, held complete control over every aspect of the lives of the people of Russia. A wrong word, a bad astrological forecast, inept military advice and poof, you were executed. The sheeple of that time, the peasantry was meant to serve the aristocracy primarily because that “was how it was always done” and new ideas were foreign to the people of that land due to centuries of Imperial enforced ignorance. This would change with the sudden expansion of other ideals and the blind foolishness of the “West” which assumed that the political system of Russian leaders was perfected to prevent outside influences from causing internal disturbances from expanding beyond small regional racially based flare-ups where the leaders could easily be bought off to preserve the status quo.
Just what if the theory worked in reverse; an oligarch, either of the American Democrat or Republican Parties elected to reverse the Soviet revolution and impose a state controlled system by convincing the “people” that it was the only solution to save their way of life?
The idea of a proverbial de facto proletariat takeover of our nation has never crossed the mind of the national psyche. America elected it though and it is quite possible we will sow what we reap because a “good crisis is too good of an opportunity to pass up” or words to that effect. The re-centralization of power and control and expansion of a statist system with integrated and cooperative corporatist technocracies to enhance and insure the expansion of a singular party’s control is the fantasy of many a dictator and we might have reached that zenith in history just now.
Just what would happen if the “workers” thought they took over our Republic? There is a lot of conjecture now in the hinterlands that the average soul is upset about the state of our union, that their voices are not being heard, the politicians are ignoring them, etc. What is different from this period of time and the era from 1913 to 1920? Not much except they arrested and detained the opposition during much of that time period using such powerful terms as “treason” and “sedition” to silence and extinguish legitimate debate, not the fringe, from the hard issues of the day. The call has already been made by some leftists like Stephanie Miller (an obscure talk show host) as highlighted in her declaration that Rush be charged with “treason and executed“. The silence from the mainstream media must indicate a support via the whisper or a blind eye to insure their role as America’s new private partnership with the Department of Information is solidified for the future.
Time will tell.
The problem as I see it is the economists, the historians, political junkies and talk show hosts are all focused on the wrong era. This is not about a 1930’s style Roosevelt takeover of our nation and elimination of the rights of the citizens. Nor is it the Woodrow Wilson reincarnation of “Progressive” freedoms. This is the new world ideal, a concept developed after continuous trial and era, using smaller nations to eradicate and use as test beds for the greater good. Unfortunately it is time for the grand experiment to come home to roost. The damned piece of paper will be willfully sacrificed with a “people’s movement” real or perceived to save the pain of the elderly from losing what they “had” and to preserve the basic standard of living of the American people. In the process of doing so, the 1917 model will be implemented to insure that freedom is defined only by those in power and insured via an international agreement to extract the capital, the production, of the United States citizen in exchange for this new life of liberty as defined by the state.
Once the level of economic deprivation and pain has reached the extremes in our nation this time, the sacrifice of the ideals of Jefferson and Franklin will become a secondary concern in exchange for a box of MRE’s for a hungry family along with several gallons of water. It is the ultimate revolution, spun and run in reverse, with the implied blessings of the religious hierarchy, mainstream business concerns and alleged intellectuals across this land of ours.
And the people will beg, pray for and demand it.
