Well actually, this is a cogent summary albeit a bit of a mash up~ ‘though I do like the heavy blues riff….
So, Chris confirms that the “POTUS” is just an employee of (Sheldon Wolin’s inverted anonymously totalitarian) corporate state establishment. Spot on, bullseye, hole-in-one.
The insidious contiguity of this rigged regime obviously runs way beyond simplistic party lines, with its built in schizophrenic monoculture of a purblind corporate mindset. The real party of government is an Oligopolist War Cabal, and this elite family compact alone hires and fires; disposes and deploys.
Civil disobedience? OK, but…aren’t local transition initiatives and grass-roots examples of self-determination a wiser more persuasive, and proactive way to go?
The USA is not a jackboot dictatorship, just yet. If protest is our only social resistance it tends to affirm the venal and oppressive status quo.
We need to foster a coherent, pragmatic and biodiverse cultural avant-garde; responsive to both appetite and aspiration, as well as basic need.
