America as a Totalitarian State? If you performed an informal poll of ordinary Americans on the street they might still think you were mad to suggest it.
And yet…. the most powerful public and private sector institutions are, unmistakably, coalescing around the idea that eradicating opposing, non-conforming ideas is justified, even in the “Land of the Free”. The evidence is everywhere that elected Establishment officials, entrenched government bureaucrats, Executives of large Corporations, Academia, Think-Tanks, Non-Profits, Legacy Media, Big Tech Oligarchs (Google, Amazon, Apple, Twitter, Facebook), even grassroots movements, are now acting in a concerted, comprehensive manner to usher in some form of “Democratic-in-name-only Autocratic Regime”.
In his article “Ideological Alignment Pushing America toward Totalitarianism, Expert Warns“, Petr Svab paraphrases retired New York University professor Michael Rechtenwald: ‘Is a large portion of the country in on a Conspiracy? The reality emerges that no massive conspiracy was required – merely an ideological alignment and some informal coordination’.
The roadmap looks something like this :
- There’s something fundamentally and intolerably wrong with Society.
- There is a plan to fix it requiring whole-of-Society buy-in.
- People opposing the plan need to be educated about the plan so they accept it.
- People who resist persuasion need to be reeducated, even against their will.
- People who won’t accept the plan, no matter what, need to be removed from Society.
Has this been coordinated? Here this writer disagrees with Professor Rechtenwald. Most decidedly it has been coordinated. The Whistleblower Movement of the New Federal State of China has been warning America (and the West) of this decades-long coordination by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for four years, ever since Miles Guo initiated the movement in America. To their great frustration, those who were still not infiltrated, bribed, blackmailed or ideologically weak, and therefore still in a position to repel this invasive ideology, were incredulous and asleep at the gate.
Either way, the enemy – Marxist thought and the CCP – have now metastasized inside the gates. This American Autocratic Regime demands politically motivated coercion. It is eroding values, traditional beliefs, and checks and balances originally established by the Constitution to repel tyranny. In fact, this Regime is, cleverly, accusing those who value traditional values of being the villains, of being subversives, of being the “domestic terrorists”. These are not randomly conceived tactics. They are well worn methods rooted in Marxism, Trotskyism, Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.
The outcome is that Americans who are not considered “ideologically pure” are being fired from their jobs, stripped of access to banking services and social media, having their businesses crippled, their homes and families harassed. Ideas that have not been “approved” by the Regime never even appear in the mainstream media or in Social media. Predictably, in alignment with Marxism & Trotskyism the next step is already being verbalized – subjecting the domestic extremists/terrorists to “deprogramming”.
The CCP-backed Regime gains control through multiple means: long term replacement of key influencers in all institutions of society; outright purchasing of media and essential infrastructure; bribery; blackmail; intimidation; propaganda from legions of mainstream and online media brigades, activists and journalists who mount negative PR campaigns and boycotts to achieve their goals & promote the ideology; censorship; physical intimidation by ideologically aligned groups like BLM, Antifa and any number of Communists front groups in America; cancel culture; de-platforming; sowing division by planting the seeds of Identity Politics; limiting web searches through ideologically aligned Oligarchs like Google.
While the CCP collaborators in the homeland believe they are ushering in a more perfect society based on critical race theory whereby everything is defined based on equity – meaning elimination of difference in outcome for people in society and elimination of white supremacy – their CCP handlers are only interested in the resultant weakening of the American Society, Economy and exceptionalism.
Look at the previously unthinkable events that have played out recently in America:
- Former Facebook executive Alex Stamos labelled questioning of the 2020 election results as “violent extremism” which social media companies should eradicate. Stamos claimed that allowing a broad range of political views to be heard on social media has led to “more radical alternatives” such as OAN and Newsmax;
- Anybody who questions the legitimacy of the election is now labelled an extremist and potentially a domestic terrorist;
- 25,000-30,000 troops guarded the inauguration of President Biden, even as the Parade was called off and citizens were warned to stay at home;
- All guard members who voted for Trump were labelled as belonging to a suspect group that could not be trusted to protect the President;
- Former FBI director James Comey said the Republican Party needs to be “burned down or changed”;
- Democratic members of Congress compared Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz to Nazis for questioning the election results;
- Congressional members called for the designating of Trump voters as domestic terrorists who require reeducation;
- Daily Beast’s Jeff Stein asked whether US spy agencies could stop “White terror”, and indicated that secret police should sniff out extremist Americans;
- According to Jack Dorsey at Twitter, banning President Trump was “just the beginning”.
Rechtenwald posits that the approach of the Left in America “mirrors that of the CCP, which commonly targets dissidents for subverting the state or spreading rumors ”. This writer maintains that instead, these ARE the tactics of the CCP being played out by their complicit forces in America.
