American Fascism, American politics, American Social Conscience, Authoritarian America, democratic socialism
Inspiration for the post: a tirade against the specter of Democratic Socialist America in the fashion of the Soviet Communist sphere of influence and the detritus of the irresponsible authoritarian mafia states left behind for western conscience and vision to address.
” . . . who despite enjoying the benefits and protections of a free society . . . ” (would vote the Democratic ticket).
What happened to these, especially our approximately 490,000 missing Americans under age 21?
https://conflict-backchannels.com/2019/10/04/an-american-report-card/ — the page provides a glance at the numbers associated with America’s most troublesome social pathologies–cocaine use, homelessness, missing persons, opioid addiction, prostitution.
Life has its hooks, ladders, and chutes, of course, and will never be perfect for everyone, but the numbers represent some systematic decimation of a modern — not 1950s white bread — culture. Are those of the middle class and of the privileged supposed to completely turn away from the social epidemiology swirling around the apparently Lost of America?
We should know who is in the mix — and why — and get that unholy street stew separated and channeled in some helpful way.
If Americans hadn’t “social conscience”, there would be no laws involving environment, health, labor, housing, or much else that has brought and held the nation together as a unified polity. Politicians on the Left / Far Left have walked down their own streets and asked about the same questions for the same reasons. Now it would seem up to radically responsible moderates to steal that flame to produce an overall healthier state, not an environment fit to elite, rapacious, and ruthless personalities.
Some Red-Green elements that have flowed down from the Soviet Era machinery have infected America’s Democratic Party with the familiar Far Left cocktail of anti-capitalist, radical, and anti-Semitic (anti-Zionist) cant that in effect poisons their own projects before they can progress. The social conscience of the Democratic Party as stamped by Presidents Roosevelt in the 1930s and Johnson in the 1960s appears well under attack by the vanguard of a bullying old White Right political culture that really doesn’t care to address the misery it has learned to overlook.
Far be it, however, for BackChannels to overlook Hollywood’s role in the glamorizing and promoting of the very scourges that have both enriched the world’s mafia and — with dollars cleaned and spiffy — spilled back into working communities — here: read about Vancouver’s pleasant (not really) influx of wealth — as to make economic retreat and the decoupling from evil virtually impossible.

In relation to Freedom of Speech, it’s nice to see Tucker Carlson casting aspersions on the Left — and perhaps rightly over “Political Correctness” — but without further anchorage in evidence. I’d want him to have a second look at bullying from the Right / Far White Right that has fairly come to characterize an obstinate and reactionary Republican Party.
Perhaps the obstinate and reactionary Republican Party is forced into the role due to denial of access and voice on multi-tiered levels. Free speech for the Left but not for the Right. That has been the Hollywood-generated mantra. Free speech has become a political tool as opposed to an open Creative Commons horn of plenty. The pendulum swings wildly when the Constitutional clock is tinkered with regarding any of its gears. The aforementioned, has kept America on time and on track for issues of governance.
Political character assassin, Peter Wehner, in his latest screech for “The Atlantic” states the GOP is in a state of profound political crisis.
Nah – the clock is just being cleaned a bit and some of the gummy residue removed.
No Conservative Republicans complained about other than “Political Correctness” (they were right to do so) during the Fox and Tea Party run-ups to the Trump Era. Now, indeed, the Reactionary Conservatism has become better defined by events associated, at least, with Russia’s autocracy and its machinations, and that has had the first effect of producing a majority “Blue” House of Representatives.
