American politics, as the midterm elections demonstrated, have descended into the irrational. On one side stands a corrupt liberal class, bereft of ideas and unable to respond coherently to the collapse of the global economy, the dismantling of our manufacturing sector and the deadly assault on the ecosystem. On the other side stands a mass of increasingly bitter people whose alienation, desperation and rage fuel emotionally driven and incoherent political agendas. It is a recipe for fascism.

  11. Exactly where we are and exactly where we came from. Fascists hired as few as they believed possible to exterminate the rest of us. Our only hope of survival is that their greed will prevent them from hiring enough assassins. But as long as they control the monetary system, with unlimited money it grants them, we have no chance in Hell.
