When will the left (and other practical rational fact based
thinkers) wake up and realize that we are in a real Civil War.
That we, now, right now, in the United States of America, have
already been engaged in a real and dangerous civil war. To put
it more narrowly, the fascist elements of the right wing
political establishment, their media and their easily led
minions are waging a serious phsycological war on us. And they
seem to be winning. There are many elements to war. War is not
just about bullets and dying on a battlefield. Propaganda and
mind control (emotional control) is an important part of war.
It helps them that we do not know or think we are in a real
war with each other, but we are. They have a propensity for
war. They are the hawks, the haters and the fear mongerers.
They are the liars. They will lie to their own people to
invade countries illegaly. They will lie, cheat and steal
elections. To them war is a means to justify their ends. They
use the language of war in their rhetoric because it is not
politics. It is not just a difference of opinion. They are
going all in and going all out to win this civil war. We call
it a cultural war or a war of ideas. It's just plain war and
we are losing the battles we don't even know we are in. The
Cold War did not end. The new enemy is us. Somebody better
wake up the rest of us before it is to late.
