A black man or a mormon- americas subconscious at work


So, I was talking this weekend with a longtime frient- a lifetime conservative republican and former state supreme court judge. And he had an interesting theory…

That the democrats having chosen Obama over the much more qualified hilary clinton, and the republicans choosing the mormon Romney, was a subsconcious, or in some cases conscious, attempt to stop americas move toward Facism. Yes, facism.

Which wikipedia describes as: Fascists seek rejuvenation of their nation… where its individuals are united together as one people in national identity by suprapersonal connections of ancestry, culture, and blood through a totalitarian single-party state… . Fascism seeks to purify the nation of foreign influences that are deemed to be causing degeneration of the nation or of not fitting into the national culture. Fascists have commonly presented themselves as politically syncretic—opposing firm association with any section of the left-right spectrum, considering it inadequate to describe their beliefs, and being critical of the left, right, and centre.However fascism’s goal to promote the rule of people deemed innately superior while seeking to purge society of people deemed innately inferior is a prominent far-right stance.

Which, with our rise in the far right, the rise in anti-muslim, anti-minority, and anti-immigrant sentiments, our labeling of even the most long standing of democratic ideals being labeled as communist/socialist/marxist…with the GOP moving to an undemocratic, parliamentary, winner takes all stance, with the rise of the propaganda machine of the right where we now see hundreds, if not thousands of posts here every day repeating the same line of the day- one that is often factually incorrect and providing no evidence…The rise of nationalism, and the idea of homeland- and the desire to remove ourselves from the rest of the world in which we live in…

Well, I’m glad I’ve always looked good in brown shirts and black boots I suppose…

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
