America headed for Totalitarianism

The similarities between the rise of the Nazis in Germany and the rise of the techno-globalist-Democrat cabal are absolutely shocking.
Epoch Times nails it again.

Fantastic Article. Great bit about the SA/Brownshirts and how the Nazis didn't need to control the media to take over. The control of the media happened AFTER, not BEFORE. They mostly terrorized people on the streets, and eventually the police stood down. Kinda Familiar.

And, as Nadine Stossner (sp?), the old real ALCU ex-head said, there WERE Hate Speech laws in Weimar and enforced, too. Julius Stretcher the Nazi Propagandist went to prison for months over publishing "Hate". Didn't do shit.

The formation of a totalitarian state is just about complete in America as the most powerful public and private sector actors unify behind the idea that actions to stamp out dissent can be justified, according to several experts on modern totalitarian ideologies.

While many have warned about the rise of fascism or socialism in “the land of the free,” the ideas have largely been vague or fragmented, focusing on individual events or actors. Recent events, however, indicate that seemingly unconnected pieces of the oppression puzzle are fitting together to form a comprehensive system, according to Michael Rectenwald, a retired liberal arts professor at New York University.

But many Americans, it appears, have been caught off guard or aren’t even aware of the newly forming regime, as the idea of elected officials, government bureaucrats, large corporations, the establishment academia, think tanks and nonprofits, the legacy media, and even seemingly grassroot movements all working in concert toward some evil purpose seems preposterous. Is a large portion of the country in on a conspiracy?

The reality now emerges that no massive conspiracy was in fact needed—merely an ideological alignment and some informal coordination, Rectenwald argues.

Despite the lack of formal overarching organization, the American socialist regime is indeed totalitarian, as the root of its ideology requires politically motivated coercion, he told The Epoch Times. The power of the regime is not yet absolute but it’s becoming increasingly effective as it erodes the values, checks, and balances against tyranny established by traditional beliefs and enshrined in the American founding.

The effects can be seen throughout society. Americans, regardless of their income, demographics, or social stature are being fired from jobs, getting stripped of access to basic services such as banking and social media, or having their businesses crippled for voicing political opinions and belonging to a designated political underclass. Access to sources of information unsanctioned by the regime is becoming increasingly difficult. Some figures of power and influence are sketching the next step, labelling large segments of society as “extremists” and potential terrorists who need to be “deprogrammed.”

This is a fantastic article.

Should be required reading for corporate HR departments who give mandatory training on "white supremacy".

During the Gold Rush era it celebrates, the owners of Columbia Booksellers & Variety Store might settle their disputes with dueling pistols at dawn.

But today, non-firing replicas of the very kinds of guns that would have been brandished during that time period appear to be at the center of a dispute between the small locally owned Tuolumne County shop and major San Francisco tech company Square, Inc.

The store had to close both its physical location in Columbia State Historic Park and its online website sales due to the tech giant abruptly canceling its contract earlier this week. Now its husband-and-wife owners are scrambling to find a way to reopen.

“This came out of the blue. There was no warnings, they did not call us to say, ‘Hey I think you might be in violation.’ There was nothing,” said Michael Sharps, who co-owns the store with his wife, Rosanna. “They just shut it down and said the decision is not reversible.”


Every business online is now at the mercy of tech billionaires' whims.

I agree 💯 percent.

BTW, try taking a class in American History at a local community college. The so called Progressive Democrats today were anything but back in the day. Come to think of it, the Dems are still pretty racist.

Any business owner with half a brain should now be scrambling (those will complete brains did this long ago) to removing any and all dependencies they might have on "Big Tech" for their business.

There may be a good business opportunity here to sell hardware and software solutions that are censorship proof. Of course it stops with the registrar/dns provider, but at least you could still use a foreign registrar with a different top level domain to keep your business going as long as customers know the aliases. At least for small business you don't need a huge hardware fleet.
