84% of Americans Fear the Government for Good Reason
by Lewis Loflin
The American government is progressive, woke, and corporatist. Democracy is becoming meaningless as absolute power is the administrative state.
The struggle is for control of this fourth branch of government. Many call it "the swamp."
To understand this danger, we must understand its complex origins going back over 100 years.
Before any discussion, we must clearly define words and their meanings. Redefining terms is a tactic used by bullies and elitists to silence debate.
A simple definition of the administrative state is "The administrative state is a term used to describe the phenomenon of executive branch administrative agencies exercising the power to create, adjudicate, and enforce their own rules."
"The Administrative State is Dwight Waldo's classic public administration text based on a dissertation written at Yale University." This goes back to 1948. Wiki.
Communist and fascist are two common, over-used and abused terms. President Biden is no communist, Donald Trump is no fascist.
Merriam-Webster defines Synonyms of fascism: rule, control, or leadership by one person with absolute power.
Example: A soaring crime rate and civil unrest were harbingers to the rise of fascism in the country.
Fascism in reality is neither left or right as America knows it, but elements of both.
Make a note of BLM-ANTIFA political violence and terrorism. Notice exploding crime and violence in Democratic Party-controlled urban areas.
Merriam-Webster defines "Near Synonyms for fascism: Big Brother, Big Brotherism, Communism, Nazism, absolutism, autarchy, authoritarianism, autocracy, Caesarism, czarism (also tsarism or tzarism), despotism, dictatorship, totalism, totalitarianism, tyranny, monarchism, monarchy, monocracy, domination, oppression."
The correct example of fascism was Benito Mussolini's Italy. He was a former communist and a life-long atheist. He was a heretical communist by allowing the existence of private property but placing industry and commerce under government control.
Italian fascism was not racist or antisemitic. Jews played a prominent role until Hitler. Mussolini's mistress was Jewish.
To quote jwa.org, "Born into a wealthy Venetian Jewish family, Margherita Sarfatti joined the Socialist Party and became the art critic for the newspaper Avanti!, where she met Benito Mussolini."
Fascism and communism are identical in social terms attacking individual liberty, and freedom. Mussolini simply did away with the illusion of democracy.
In economic terms fascism is corporatism or state capitalism.
Corporatism is defined as, "the control of a state or organization by large interest groups." Further, ""roughly one hundred years ago, the free market began to be replaced with corporatism" (Oxford)
An Antonym is defined as, "a word opposite in meaning to another (e.g. bad and good )." Antonyms & Near Antonyms for fascism: "democracy, self-governance, self-government, self-rule, freedom, self-determination, autonomy, sovereignty."
When "liberal" politicians say "our democracy," they don't mean any of the antonyms listed above.
The Soviet Union was a democracy, like the Islamic Republic of Iran. Every four years, Soviet citizens could vote for representation in the Supreme Soviet.
Iranians vote for a "president," a legislature (Majlis), and an "Assembly of Experts." The "Experts" elect the Supreme Leader. There are also city and local elections every four years.
Democracy is window dressing in many countries and cultures. Democracy is a collectivist activity that has nothing to do with individual liberty.
There is much overlap between American Progressives and British Fabian Socialism.
Famous Fabians included H.G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, briefly Bertrand Russell, and many others.
H.G. Wells wrote that "progressive leaders must become liberal fascists or enlightened Nazis..."
Quoting Jerry Bowyer in Forbes.com (Nov. 3, 2008), "Barack Obama is a Fabian socialist. I should know; I was raised by one."
"Fabians believed in gradual nationalization of the economy through manipulation of the democratic process. Breaking away from the violent revolutionary socialists of their day, they thought that the only real way to effect 'fundamental change' and 'social justice' was through a mass movement of the working classes presided over by intellectual and cultural elites."
I'm afraid I have to disagree with one crucial facet, the Democratic Party has replaced class with race.
In that respect, racial justice, aka racial socialism, is taking on the character of Nazi racial socialism.
Let me be clear Democratic Party Progressives are NOT Nazis. They want to maintain "democracy" but want rigid control of the process. Or at least the window dressing.
This nationalization can be achieved not through direct ownership by the government but with mass taxation and regulation.
Karl Marx envisioned a worker's revolt from the bottom up. Vladimir Ilʹich Lenin changed this to revolution from the top down.
Progressives also see a revolution from the top down.
Italians elected Benito Mussolini to office. He was cheered by Fabian Socialists, American Progressives, and The New York Times.
He did away with democracy window dressing.
So was Lenin and, at times, even Hitler by American Progressives.
Besides his genocidal "racial justice" against the Jews and attacks on his neighbors, he was a Progressive.
He instituted public works, opened government hospitals and schools, free college, pensions for the elderly, etc.
He believed in massive government spending that brought approval from the masses.
They all believe in a powerful central government that serves the "common good."
The problem is statism or state power—the ruling class's character determines that state's function. State power can be interchanged with administrative state.
Let us turn to the American ruling class.
By its very nature, they replace individual liberties, self-determination, etc., with government-mandated "rights."
These rights are broken into two spheres social and economic.
Those rights are minimal, seemingly limited to sexual perversion, abortion, and particular social issues. Also a right to public benefits.
They see economic rights in a collectivist manner: free government healthcare, free education, and even free food.
They reject individual economic and property rights. Without those rights, all other rights are meaningless.
When "conservatives" talk about "free markets," they mean corporatism.
The role of government is to partner with and protect the interests of national and international businesses.
They oppose protecting workers and the public from abuse and harm from business excess.
They view corporations as people with special rights and protections over real people.
Large businesses are indifferent and even hostile to the interests of ordinary people.
I reject corporatism. In Southwest Virginia, where I live, this creates political corruption and aggravates rampant class warfare. I cover this in detail on my Sullivan County website.
"Democracy" in America is becoming as worthless as democracy in the Soviet Union or Iran.
Why a total lack of freedom in the Soviet Union or Iran? The problem is the "administrative state."
The Communist Party controlled the administrative state in the Soviet Union. The same is true of Communist China.
Shia religious fundamentalists control the Iranian administrative state.
This power, both economic and social, was imposed down to the local level. Those imposing this tyranny believed it served the public good.
Communist control wasn't tyranny to devoted communists. The Iranian theocracy wasn't tyrannical to Shia fundamentalists.
Those outside these respective administrative states and those controlling them became the enemy.
Conservative and liberal are as meaningless as democracy was in the Soviet Union or Iran.
Democratic Party is better called Progressive Party. Progressive: "a social or political movement that aims to represent the interests of ordinary people through political change and the support of government actions."
They do not represent ordinary people but a coalition of special interests tinged with racism and social grievance. This culture is called "wokeism."
Wokeism: "the behavior and attitudes of people sensitive to social and political injustice."
"Injustice" is highly subjective and incoherent.
The Republican establishment is just Corporatist but is "woke" on social issues.
Our ruling class, represented by both political parties, is progressive, woke and corporatist. They work together for their mutual benefit but still struggle for control.
There is no place for a Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump. They stopped Bernie, and he sold out. Trump won in 2016 despite efforts from both parties to stop him.
The real fight is to control of the administrative state or the "deep state." They wield the most political power by employing 2 million Federal workers and millions more at the state and local levels.
Let me be clear this is not a mass conspiracy. Like-minded people head these vast agencies. Like a herd of bison, they can trample anything dangerous to the pack. And they will crush you.
The agency heads are nearly all graduates of the top two dozen or so universities. They like each other and seldom disagree on significant issues. They disdain the "smelly Walmart shoppers."
Our college campuses today are poisonous hotbeds of anti-Western hatred. Socialist radicalism and elitism dominate the culture. The Constitution does not apply.
The head of the administrative state snake is our elite universities.
Both parties have delegated vast power to agencies of unelected professionals, the fourth branch of government. The other Three Branches seem to fear them or run with the herd.
A functioning and independent press can counter administrative state tyranny. Instead, we have an alliance with the progressive left media and press.
The judicial system and its processes have become a form of coercion and terrorism.
Endless, open-ended investigations by legions of public lawyers can ruin anyone, innocent or not.
The general public, even the wealthy, is helpless against ruinous legal fees joined by constant attacks in the press.
The DOJ, FBI, etc. are acting as the East German Stasi, most of the media and press as an American Pravda.
Those running newsrooms also graduated from those elite universities. They also disdain "smelly Walmart shoppers."
A survey by Roxy Amirazizi (2021) reports almost 80% of Americans fear "Corrupt government officials."
The New York Times Opinion / Siena College Poll (2022): Free Speech in America:
84% Say Americans being Afraid to Exercise Freedom of Speech is a Serious Problem;
Over Half Have Held their Tongue due to Concern over Retaliation, Criticism;
Pluralities Less Free Today than 10 Years Ago to Speak on Politics, Race.
Only 34% Say All Americans Completely Enjoy Freedom of Speech;
And Progressive fascist: 30% Call for Shutting Down Anti-democratic, Bigoted or Untrue Speech.
The 30% and 34% are the same people. They are winning.
