I was in the middle of a weekly yoga session with my neighbor when it hit me: civil war is coming to America after all.
This war will be between People and Corporations, just as I predicted in 2003. On the side of the People will be The PNA and India 2.0. On the side of the Corporations, Rump America. Blue people against Red people. (See the previous post re the terminology.)
Nine years ago, I completed an analysis showing that 500 years of “American” history pointed straight to a coming People vs. Corporations civil war.
But at the time, I thought that that was an impossibility. My reasoning went that a corporation is a legal fiction, and you can’t exactly shoot a legal fiction. Ergo, no shooting war.
But the defeat of Prop 37 in California, and the vitriolic fallout after the presidential election two days ago has me thinking otherwise.
There’s two camps in this country: Left (Blue) and Right (Red). Right fears Government domination. “One World Government” is their nightmare.
Left fears Corporate domination. A poisoned planet and sickened people is their nightmare.
The Right thinks the Left is crazy when it talks about “global warming” and “emissions”, “GMO” as “poison”, SSRIs as weapons of death and despair, 9/11 as a bit too funky, etc. Those Lefties are conspiracy theorist nut-jobs. With Obama in power, the lunatics are running the asylum!
The Left thinks the Right is crazy talking about “One World Government” when the sole remaining ruler of the entire planet is the good old USA herself. In other words, if there is a One World Government, we are it! What are those lunatics worried about?
My neighbor tells me the two sides just need to talk more to find their common humanity. I’d say that would be a great idea, if Sandy wasn’t the early cry of a prophecy yet to be played out. Or if the sole remaining world superpower wasn’t on the brink of insolvency.
Let’s look closer at those two issues.
The Right thinks Sandy was God’s punishment against homosexuality. i.e. it was the Left’s fault. The Left thinks Sandy is the harbinger of the final days of the Oil Economy. i.e. it was the Right’s fault.
Government insolvency? Left says it was Bush’s war-mongering. Right says it’s Obama’s welfare nation.
So to the Right, the Left is the agent of mysterious foreign occupation and domination of America. i.e. traitors.
And to the Left, the Right is the (mostly) unwitting handmaiden of the corporate destruction of the planet, starting with America. i.e. traitors (not to mention humans as corporate proxies).
That last thought made me realize that even if corporations are legal fictions, the humans doing their bidding, like the 53% in California who voted NO on Prop 37 (GMO labeling), are people who can shoot and be shot as corporate-proxies (creepy thought, that one).
But the thing that finally pushed me over the edge about this coming civil war was the idea that issues of race and gender were all but over in this country. In the link above from 2003, I argue that the meteoric rise of blacks and women since 1963 implied that these struggles were over with. Certainly the election of Barack Hussein Obama seemed to corroborate that assumption.
But this last election woke me up to something. Blacks and women have certainly “made it” in America, but only in The PNA and India 2.0 portions of America. Another way to say it is that Obama is the President, not of America, but of India 2.0, and the absentee President of The PNA.
Rump America? That Kenyan n@#$%r ain’t their President.
I’m seeing the election-season comments from the GOP about “legitimate rape” and “God’s will” in another light altogether. When these stories first came out, I thought of these men as dinosaurs. Anachronisms.
But they’re not that at all. They are middle of the road in Rump America.
I was joking in my last post when I said that Rump America was still fighting the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
I’m not joking today. I really think they are.
Last point about the coming civil war: the media. Whenever there is civil war, like for example in Syria today, each side optimally has it own media, spouting out its propaganda.
To the Right, the MSM (main street media) is the propaganda arm of the Left.
Guess who says that the loudest? Fox News, the propaganda machine of the Right.
So each side has its own media. Actually though, the MSM is the media for India 2.0. The PNA doesn’t have its own captive media. Maybe Hollywood and Silicon Valley social media will play that role.
Sad thought: If civil war is coming, what will be the Fort Sumpter event? Sad to say, but I’d put my money on political assassination. At the highest levels.
A few years ago, the Obama administration put out an analysis warning of increased right-wing terrorism in the country. That analysis was withdrawn after howling protests from the Right.
I’m fearing that in Obama’s second term, the chickens are coming home to roost on that prophetic withdrawn analysis.
Finally, why blog such sad things?
My main reason is to raise public consciousness of these grave matters, and prepare people to think about an orderly division of the country into the natural three sub-countries.
2012 is not a time for any side to force its worldview down the throat of the other side at the point of a gun. Better for each side to walk away, and divorce peacefully.
That’s my hope. Otherwise, Canada is looking better and better these days. 🙂
