AMERICA BEHIND THE CURTAIN
I began my Twitter Wars during President Obama’s first Administration. I supported his election and thought it showed American had taken a turn away from the racist turmoil of the past.
Unfortunately, it was the opposite. Since the media was enthralled it didn’t quite provide the bitterness and rancor as the reaction to President Trumps first years in office.
Yet some of the often disguised racism, sometimes blatant racism, from Obama in African dress, and the everpresent birther controversy it quickly became shameful. I thought much of the radical right, calling for patriots to enlist in militias, and the hate speech was scary. It appeared we were heading toward revolution, or at least violent confrontations.
I blocked a lot of these haters from my twitter account. Yet I began a very aggressive campaign against political extremist, left and right, and those who I thought endangered out democracy. What a difference a few years made. After Wiki-leaks, the 2016 campaign demagoguery, from every direction, and the education of this blogger, I discovered there is much wrong in America. I researched, Hillary’s State Department, Russia Reset, and US technology give away, media consolidation, campaign finance, congressional dues, and the resulting corporation oligarchy.
I discovered the innate violence in our culture, and the ultimate violence breeding through; Video Games, Movies, Television, Sports, and America’s preoccupation with war. Not a period of 6 years has passed without US involvement in wars since 1776. I discovered congress was corrupted through super PACs, and the congressional leadership has set mandatory dues requiring individual congressmen to spend 1/3 to 1/2 of their official time soliciting donations from their corporate masters.
Without their party, and the party leadership’s material support, and of course the corporate dollars they stood alone. To lose. Without committee participation, nor resources for election. In fact, their opponents would be supported.
Congressional bondage was such that corporations not only influenced elections but legislation. The anti-trust legislation had been ignored and the Media, Pharmaceutical, Automobile manufacturers, Social Media, High Tech companies, Medical and hospital organizations, Big Insurance, and super retail chains; we’re creating a new ruling class in America. The Supreme Court was bogged down “slogan law” and could not or would not address how our democracy was being whittled down to bells and whistles only.
The Media was the most obviously consolidated, biased result, and no longer was a great servant of the people and democracy, but had new masters. Corporations, Globalism, Liberal and radical leftist, and the massive defense industries conquered weak-willed America. With the democratic party, under Hillary Clinton, it was certain we were going to confront Russia, resulting in war if she was elected. The stale, unmoveable, undiplomatic, and exploitative State Department remained an instrument of National Policy, but one reflecting the defense department and intelligence agencies, not diplomacy and mutually beneficial international relations.
I also discovered Race in America, from Slavery abolition to Civil Rights legislation; these great shifts in the American psyche had been administered in such a way that cultural and racial relations were guaranteed to worsen where no true integration and assimilation was ever planned for or considered. The cultural reaction, opposition, fear, economic and educational barriers, crime and poverty, never made a project management outline or timeline or even a powerpoint presentation for these monumental transitions in American society.
The same is happening today with immigration, trade wars, and foreign relationships. We have no plan for a future Iraq, Syria, Iran, Afganistan, or North Korea. It’s simple; we plan actions, but don’t plan consequence in the aftermath of our actions.
Our Journalist, State Department, Congress, Executive Branch, need to step back and look at what this silent revolution within America has wrought. Research, and plan beginning in the past unto the future. Democracy is a governmental system with the participation of the people. To prevent Oligarchy, Anarchy, and diminishing democracy; Americans must awake from the slumber of the smooth propaganda of leisure preoccupation and we must grow strength and spirit becoming revolutionaries for a new America. Not a Right wing, Left wing, Race, Sex, or socialist revolution, but a revolution against the peoples growing powerlessness and complacent.
I have much to say about Race in America and promise an article soon. Plus other specific issues; immigration, sexism, equality, and all the above. But this is a call for America to awake. Today. Write your thoughts. Research your philosophy and politics, see if they pass the test of analysis and truth. Reseach the roots and foundations of America and see if we remain on that path. Do the work.
Decide today who you will serve; Democracy; our dream, or Mammon and future Dystopian America. We need free Journalistic thought, emerging leadership, congressional independent hero’s, grassroots and field of grain movements. Social Media can be a democracy game changer. Or just spit and chatter.
Take a giant leap into action, become a social critic, start blogs, have social discussions on street corners, backyard barbeques, dinner parties, community centers and involve young Americans and seniors. Read my onefreepress.net and peacepossible.org articles, examine and do your own google searches for truth. Be contagious, a salesperson for our future as a shining city on a hill.
Channel your anger, even your hate at the true enemies of America. Not your fellow Americans who, like you, are contrived puppets of distraction and diversion politics.
I will in the future write about specific topics to give you food for thought. So enough words, either work for change or accept your chains and let your mouths utter irrelevant nonsense. I have faith that you are out there. Email me with any questions, perceived obstacles, or inspiration. I have a few Google Plus Communities, two WordPress Blogs, One Active Twitter account and a Facebook account that mirror my opinions. Normally they all begin here on OneFreePress.net
