No one can deny that there is a political movement in this country to bring about Democratic Socialism. A few years ago, the idea of a Socialist America was laughable. "Americans have traditionally had an aversion to socialism as a label. A 2019 Gallup poll found that over half of Americans believe some form of socialism would be a bad thing for the country and a 2018 YouGov poll showed that over half of Democrats and two thirds of Republicans would be uncomfortable with a socialist candidate.", from Data for progress.
The Covid epidemic taught us obedience to Government. We learned that our present generation is willing to accept executive decrees with no legislature involved in enacting new laws. That although the term socialism is still not accepted by the majority in this country, it is becoming more popular. What is driving this trend towards acceptance of authoritarian rule? This article is not to debate, if the decrees were necessary or not, it is a discussion of acceptance of dictator style leadership. How is it that the political climate in the USA has shifted so radically to the political left? There are many hypothesis to answer that. We will discuss one method that has been very successful in Latin America and also recently in America.
There is growing evidence that an asymmetrical war is being waged in the USA in order to change our country, our history and our way of life. This is the war of the twenty first century. They can be small dissidents made up of political extremist groups with no affiliation to a county, which means they are not recognizable, no uniform. They can engage in violent activities, leaving little chance of reprisals. How do you counterattack a group that is mixed into your civilian population. "In addition, those killed in action can be portrayed as martyrs and used to recruit more converts to the cause.", quoted from David E Long, writing for a newsletter from the USA naval Post Graduate School.
An example to clarify, would be in the Middle East.
Islamic Jihadism may send civilians with bombs wrapped around their torso into Israeli civilian areas to cause as much civilian death as possible. Those who die are promised rewards in the afterlife, they are called martyrs and the leaders of their cause will support their families if they died as a martyr.
When Israel retaliates, they find an enemy hard to fight. The numbers of soldiers are in Israel's favor. The military might is in Israel's favor, but this is not conventional war. The enemy is normally hidden in school buildings, in hospital buildings and among the civilian population. The enemy wants you to kill their civilian population. That will get the population angry at the enemy, and make them more politically popular. the world screams that the fighting is disproportionate. There would be screams that War Crimes were committed. This is an example of an asymmetrical war.
The 9/11 terrorist attacks and the war in Afghanistan are among the best-known recent examples of asymmetric warfare: conflicts between nations or groups that have disparate military capabilities and strategies. For twenty years we fought in Afghanistan against an enemy that doesn't mind if civilians die. It makes them stronger. If the USA does an attack and there are innocents that die, which can not be avoided in war, the enemy gets stronger politically. We are conventionally stronger, but we can not win such a war.
During the BLM and Antifa riots last year. They were able to burn down businesses and destroy cities. They could attack police with impunity. An example is a blog in the Marshall Report that blames the police for the riots. "Disproportionate use of force can turn a peaceful protest violent, research shows. Though these protests began with peaceful demonstrations outside the city’s 3rd Precinct, interactions between police and protesters had escalated. Police unleashed pepper spray, projectiles and tear gas. Protesters threw water bottles, built barricades and destroyed nearby property."
Not only are the Police afraid to respond to these riots, BLM and Antifa has become more acceptable and more popular. They burn down a city and their popularity increases. The foundation widely seen as a steward of the Black Lives Matter movement says it took in just over $90 million last year, according to a financial snapshot shared exclusively with the Associated Press.
New York City is one of many school systems in the United States set to roll out Black Lives Matter (BLM)-themed lesson plans this fall. According to the NYC Department of Education, teachers will delve into “systemic racism,” police brutality, and white privilege in their classrooms. School systems across the country are adopting BLM curriculum at at alarming rate, indoctrinating our children to achieve Marxist objectives.
