The Past Lives On: The Elite Strategy To Divide and Conquer

“Let those who think I am wrong about Trump and Biden being players in the same show, consider this. If Trump is truly the opponent of the Deep State, the Swamp, the corrupt establishment, he will pardon Julian Assange, Chelsey Manning, and Edward Snowden who have been persecuted by these forces. He has nothing left to lose as he exits stage right.”

The Past Lives On: The Elite Strategy To Divide and Conquer

They call my people the White Lower Middle Class these days. It is an ugly, ice-cold phrase, the result, I suppose, of the missionary zeal of those sociologists who still think you can place human beings on charts.  It most certainly does not sound like a description of people on the edge of open, sustained and possibly violent revolt,” wrote the marvelous New York journalist, Pete Hamill in “The Revolt of the White Lower Middle Class” in New York magazine.  He added:

The White Lower Middle Class? Say that magic phrase at a cocktail party on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and monstrous images arise from the American demonology. Here comes the murderous rabble: fat, well-fed, bigoted, ignorant, an army of beer-soaked Irishmen, violence-loving Italians, hate-filled Poles. Lithuanians…

    absolutely. and he would have released the hidden docs on the jfk assassination and 911 which would reveal the criminals in our government. not to mention the mlk assassination. though those acts would take a lot more courage, perhaps risking his own assassination.

  2. IMHO, Trace, global capitalist structures have steadily been breaking down since 2000. This breakdown mainly manifests as a series of economic crashes – with the worst being the 2008 global economic crash and the current COVID economic crisis. The steady destruction of the middle class is probably the strongest evidence of capitalism breaking down. In the past, the capitalist elite mainly used a well trained middle class to control us, but with the middle class steadily vanishing, the only option they are left with is naked violence by the police and military. In a large country, this type of totalitarian control can only be maintained with strong energy, communication and food supply networks. As these networks continue to slowly break down, neighborhoods and communities will no longer look to government and corporations to meet their needs, and they will opt out of the corporate system by finding ways to look after themselves and each other at the neighborhood and community. We have an excellent model of this happening in South Africa in the 1990s – this played a major role in the fall of the apartheid system. The film of Nowtopia, which I posted today, describes this process in some detail.

    • Trump is an evil bastard. his mentor Roy Cohn sadistically destroyed the lives of thousands of talented people, with the McCarthy witchhunts. Trump has set america in the precipice of nuke war and nuke, catastrophes. His supporters believe nuke war is survivable. Even the detonation of a few nuke bombs will destroy what is left of the world. The generals, the oligarchs, the racist fallderal, the evangelical Christian fascists are all mad. The huge cadre of racist goon, police-pig bullies, that support this evil bastard, in this racist police state are evil bully bastards well.
