Won't Get Fooled Again?: The South and the Dialectic

We Southerners must understand today's GOP is merely the outcome of the classic dialectical process, in which two opposing ideas, thesis and antithesis, clash and then interact to produce an outcome called a synthesis. Conservatives, and especially us Southerners, have a genetic predisposition to defend the status quo, any status quo. So the cycle keeps repeating itself, with yesterday's synthesis becoming today's thesis. Conservatives, even in the act of "winning" (as they falsely believe) get co-opted into defending the last synthesis that's now the new status quo. The enemy takes up a new position even further to the Left as their new antithesis. The dialectical process spins again and produces a new increment of progress toward subjugation, fascism/progressivism, and Empire.

The regular election cycles represent the near-final triumph of the dialectic, which is another name for choosing the lesser of two evils. The dialectic has brought us to where there is no longer any real distinction between the candidates. The presumed differences have been blurred beyond recognition. The two parties no longer represent genuine alternatives but are simply rivals for power, two sides of the same (counterfeit) coin.

We who understand this, who see the game is rigged, and rigged to always favor the Empire, must opt out of it and seek another paradigm. That paradigm is an end to the vast, unitary Empire, which is collapsing of its own folly and corruption in any case. Why not get off the sinking ship and into the lifeboats? Why not Southern liberty? Why not Southern independence?

We must no longer let Those People fool us into playing this rigged game through their litany of threats and dangers. The greatest threat to our freedom and way of life is no longer external; it's our own government.

  1. Agree, the ship is headed toward a reef, steering locked and no one at the helm. It is a planned crash. Anyone not already divesting themselves of paper and fiat currency will go down with her. The only lifeboats you will have to make yourself out of real tangible assets, beans, bullets,bandaids and buddies.
