The Last Days of the Republic

by Invino Veritas

A few days ago, as I was sitting at work working on a printer, I opened up my Google editor, as I often do when I get ideas and things that I want to talk about pop into my head. I had spent the last couple of weeks marveling and wallowing in a state of despair at the horrible legislation passing their way effortlessly through Congress that spell the end of this great country. I asked myself the same question that people have asked themselves from the beginnings of this nation: “What can I do?” It was at that point that I knew that if I couldn’t bring myself to drop my life to the wayside, that I could at the very least get the word out. I could weed through the disinformation and misinformation; I could sort out what I believed to be truth from fiction. In doing this, I knew I had to identify what that message had to be. I realized that sometimes you have step back and view everything as a whole and work your way into the details. I had to take a look at the big picture. This was the first step: identify the problem.

As we take a look and hear about the unrest that is viewed by us, served to us by the media and personal sources, many of us have to the tendency to confuse the foundations of the overall problem. We get caught up in the “what if” and “what about” arguments, but neither of those hypothetical circumstances have any bearing on what is actually happening today. They don’t matter. When America declared independence, we did so with the intent to establish and reconcile the right of not just some people, but all human beings regardless of caste, background, race, color, and creed. This all begins with our U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. What separates these documents from other historical documents is that these are the law. The Gettysburg Address and the Declaration of Independence are speeches and, well, declarations; they are not law — those subsequent documents are.  The United States Constitution and The Bill of Rights are law; they are the de facto standard by which our entire country is based. These documents recognized that ALL people are created equally, and as such, are deserving of simple truths and rights. This brings up an important note, because, today, this basic information is being attacked. The very definitions, and therefore spirit, of these ideas are being subverted in order to propagate an agenda that is the antithesis of that foundation that we (supposedly) hold so dear.

I have identified two major parts to this overall problem. These are not new ideas and practices. History will tell us that a.) these theories don’t work, and b.) these theories are completely and utterly immoral in practice. What are these ideas? These ideas, these doctrines that are being stewed in a pot like a cauldron of devilish potatoes and carrots within our government and society are Fascism and Marxism. Each of these doctrines are interwoven within our current form of America today. It’s easy to go about our business as usual and never really pay attention to the signs. But the signs of these doctrines and practices have been going on for a while now, from the big cities to the small, rural regions of the country. But one certainty is that abstinence and apathy in the face of these practices will only secure the realization and totality of their institutions. As an analogy, ignoring the bombs dropping from the sky won’t keep them from blowing up in your face. Like an ostrich sticking its head in the sand, we are still subject to the causes and results of these practices — regardless of whether or not we pay attention to them.

There is a distinct tendency to discredit any argument that uses a likeness to the Holocaust of World War II Germany. For the most part, this is warranted, because there aren’t too many things that can compare to such atrocities witnessed during those times. This instantaneous discredit is derived by something called Godwin’s Law, which, basically, states that anytime someone compares anything to the Holocaust, that their argument at that moment loses all credibility and weight, and therefore becomes null and void. Again, this is true for the majority of such analogies. But there is a small percentage of analogies that ring true. But how do we make the distinction between the truth and fiction here? The answer lies in the identifiable cause and result relationships. This is called logic, which is the foundation of sound comparisons or analogies.

OK, so what does all this have to do with Fascism and Marxism? Wasn’t Germany during WWII operating under a Socialist doctrine? The answer there is yes. But there’s also a natural progression. Historically, Democracies have a tendency to degenerate to Dictatorships which in return degenerate to Socialism. But where does it all start? Well, once again, it all starts with the U.S. Constitution. Article IV, Section IV of the United States Constitution defines the type of government that the United States should have, and that is a Republic. Nowadays, all you hear in the words of the media, the public, and our leaders is the idea of Democracy. Rarely, if ever, do we even hear the combinatory term Democratic Republic. What happened to the Republic? When did it become a Democracy? As our country progressed and different perspectives were brought into the mix, the original political parties were the Federalist (formed by Alexander Hamilton) and the Democratic-Republican (formed by James Madison and Thomas Jefferson) political parties. In 1828, the Democratic-Republic party split into the Jacksonian Democratic Party (later to form the Democratic Party) and the Whigs Party. The Whigs eventually dissolved and eventually lead to the formation of the Republican Party around 1854. This Republican Party was the dominant party until 1832, when Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal Coalition emerged in 1933 — which led to a Democratic majority until the late 1960’s.

OK, well, now what does all this have to do with Fascism and Marxism? Well, in my mind, the boldest step to come to light that really started the ball rolling towards our current position is something that happened in 1933. General Smedley Butler, a decorated war hero of the United States, was approached by a small group of Wall Street individuals with the intent to overthrow Roosevelt and construct a fascist system in America. This story first broke in the New York Times, but later disappeared from public view. In 1934, it was brought to light via a congressional hearing, where General Butler exposed a lobbying group, The American Liberty League, as funders for the coup. These included companies such as Goodyear, Standard Oil, DuPont, General Foods, General Motors, Birdseye, Colgate, Heinz Foods, and U.S. Steel. Probably the most notable individual person to be named as a co-conspirator is Prescott Bush, grandfather to George W. Bush. George W. Bush is a board member of a company called Cerberus Capital Management, who in return owns a significant interest in General Motors. His family, as it is well-known, has a large interest in oil. (Another point of interest to some, perhaps, is that Standard Oil’s founder and controlling stock holder at that time was John D. Rockefeller’s family, one of the alleged thirteen ancient families known as “The Illuminati”. But that’s all I will say about that, however, as that is out of scope of this essay.)

OK, so we’ve identified fascism in America. But what exactly makes fascism bad? This may seem like a simple idea to many of you, but to others it’s not so straightforward. The most famous fascist is probably Benito Mussolini, the Italian dictator during World War II. But fascism has its earliest roots in France during the 1880’s. The first important property of fascism is the idea of the individual versus the collective. People are viewed as simply a part of the larger collective. By themselves, they are insignificant. But together, they importantly make up the whole. This means that anything that defines individuality is nullified. Secondly, fascism views the people as nothing more than primitive and without any glory or heroism. Fascism seeks to quell and eradicate the will for liberal ideas as evidenced by its direct opposition to liberal democracy. But a theory is not enough to create a movement or an action to install such a practice. Traditionally, this has been accomplished through military presence. Now, let’s take a look at our modern United States. The U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives have passed a defense bill that will allow, when President Barack Obama signs it into law, for the U.S. military to a.) operate within the United States, b.) imprison American citizens indefinitely without trial at anytime for any reason or no reason at all, and c.) completely and without recourse subvert the majority of the amendments defined in the U.S. Bill of Rights and Habeas Corpus. Allegedly, this is meant to identify Americans operating as or working with terrorists on U.S. soil until the threat of terrorism is no more. The problem here is twofold. One, terrorism is simply the spread of fear. The use of such a law lends precedence to anything that can be construed or misconstrued to promote both fear and apprehension alike. While this no doubt includes foreign military presences, it also includes things such as talking to your friends about how you feel about your government. It includes things such as talking to your neighbors about your feelings regarding the current state of affairs. It even includes things such as town meetings where people are traditionally encouraged to speak their opinions and concerns to their community leaders. Since the U.S. Military won’t have to worry about that pesky Bill of Rights, then they can proactively spy on anyone at any time — for any reason. If you display any signs of disagreement with any of their practices, you can be seen as suspicious and possibly working for the enemy. In that case, should they decide, they can ship you off to Guantanamo Bay or somewhere similar. Secondly, there is no end to the many possible sources of fear. In the wreckage of Ground Zero in New York after September 11th, 2001, there was residue from a U.S. military-grade white phosphorous on the steel beams of the towers. (White phosphorous is used to destroy and melt metal objects and structures, among other things.) Fear can be manufactured at anytime for any reason, whether from natural means or man-made means. This very idea that someone could and might want to do something like that is enough to promote fear. Once the military dictatorship is firmly in place, then we can move on to the Marxist regime.

Marxism is the political ideology that says that the state is a vehicle for “the exploitation of the masses by a dominant class, that class struggle has been the main agency of historical change, and that the capitalist system, containing from the first the seeds of its own decay, will inevitably, after the period of the dictatorship of the proletariat, be superseded by a socialist order and a classless society.” In plain English, this means that the elite will reap the rewards of the underprivileged, who will be, both metaphorically and actually, beaten into submission and eventually yield, willingly, to Socialism without classes. Still a little bit foggy? Let’s imagine your boss hires you to pick corn for a penny an ear. You think to yourself, that’s not much, but it’s better than what I have now — so you agree. Your boss, on the other hand, sells the corn for one dollar an ear. One day, you realize that after a year of doing this, you need to secure the fundamentals like food, clothing, and shelter, but you can’t afford this, because you’re only making a penny an ear. You tell your boss that you want a raise. But instead of simply telling you “no”, he beats you and throws you in a hole in the ground. After about two weeks, your boss accumulates a thousand such holes of poor, wretched, beaten, starving people in the ground. These swarthy people in the ground rise up and band together to divide the corn among themselves. But now nobody buys the corn for a dollar an ear. For some reason, the corn is only worth a penny an ear. Strangely, everybody is still poor, still hungry, still without shelter, and still wrapped in tattered clothing. Everyone is the same. There are no classes. Only the %99.99 and the handful of ruling class. Society has no wealth. The incentive to persist and surpass is diminished. There’s no higher levels for which to dream, or upon which to set our goals. There are no prizes… nothing to achieve in the long run.

This is what Marxism has in store for us. We will be beaten into submission until we lose all our will, our wealth, and our pride. At this point, we turn to a contemporary by the name of Yuri Bezmenov. Yuri was a KGB operative for Russia during the Cold War, when he fell in love with the ideals and culture of  the United States and eventually defected to the U.S. Shortly thereafter, he began teaching and speaking about the threat and the spread of what he calls ideological subversion. In his own words, Yuri explains that the ruling majority have, over time, worked very hard at changing our perceptions of reality, and that, “despite the abundance of information, no one [will be] able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their communities, and their country.” This process of brainwashing people over time is given four long-term steps that happen over generations of people throughout one society or another. These steps are as follows: demoralization, destabilization, crisis, and normalization. Currently, we are in the stage of crisis, and it is this stage that takes the least amount of time to complete. The process of demoralization, according to Yuri, began in the 1960’s, and generally takes about fifteen to twenty years, because that’s the time it takes to demoralize an entire generation. As that generation comes forward to take up the duties of a society, society itself becomes stuck with a nation of people whose perception has been permanently changed to resist moral standards and truth in positions of importance and influence. Destabilization takes about two to five years. During the period of destabilization, the focus of the ruling majority is with “economy, foreign relations, and defense systems.” Today, we are on the brink of economic depression, and there is a rising pressure both inside and outside of the United States from our military. Also, the United States is at consistent odds with and active in the Middle East and Central America. Quite possibly, such destabilization efforts, such as the “Arab Spring”, could have been instigated by the United States purposefully for this very reason.  Crisis began with the current domestic political unrest and uprising in the United States with such things as the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, and the inability of our government to make decisions and appropriate legislation to defend our economy against imminent collapse. When, or if, the normalization of America is complete, government will step in to save the people and suspend the nation in a false sense of security from the “evils” of the world. To the people, the government will appear as saviors, rather than an impending regime bent on destroying freedom. At that point, America will willingly sign over the deed to the country to make it all go away. Marxism will be complete, and the Socialist regime can get underway. This is what Marxism does for us. It takes away our freedoms. It destroys our individuality. It abandons our morality. It confuses our sensibilities. It is the death of the nation.

All that said, this is neither by any means meant to be a complete diagnosis of the state of affairs, nor is it meant to be definitive. Perhaps, I have been programmed to feel this way. I simply cannot dedicate myself to the idea that I have all the information, as information is a closely guarded commodity by its very nature in the context of this essay. I may be completely wrong. I will certainly resign myself to that possibility. But if there is one thing I hope that you, as the reader, will get out of this:  it’s that the possibility exists. As long as the possibility exists, as evidenced by history and what appears to be the signs of the ending of an age — viewing with objectivity at current events — then I believe we should, at the very least stand vigilant against it. I publish this article with but only this idea in mind: Should I suddenly disappear, I may find myself in prison or executed. But as I am just a vehicle for a greater idea and set of beliefs, it is the ideas and information that are the most important things. In the times that may lay ahead of us, where we feel that there is little that we, as individuals can do, let us be reminded that in times such as they are, it is the power of the people who reside above all — and not the strengths of the few — that can resist them. United we stand; divided we fall. Remember that? All or nothing. Do not settle for less. Do not settle for half. Do not negotiate because it is easier. In the words of Alexander Dumas, “All for one and one for all.” That is what it means to be united, and that is what it means to be a United States.

    Yes, the news is very negative. Yes, the legislation is bad. We are reliving the 1930s. Dictators don’t happen overnight. It takes a decade , or more. It remains to be sween, how much of that time we have wasted away.
