Dredd Blog has maintained several times that slander, misinformation, and swift boating of the institutions of the United States government, as well as the traditions of American society, have been under intense attack for a decade.
We continue to repeat that those attacks continue to intensify, and that they have a specific purpose.
In a recent post we pointed out how one poll shows current public "respect" for the institutions of U.S. government:
A Gallup poll taken annually for quite a few years, shows that congress is in last place and the military is in first place.(Stockholm Syndrome on Steroids?). One of the main reasons for The Declaration of Independence was set forth in another Dredd Blog post:
Of the list of items set forth as the reasons for declaring independence from The Ideology of the British Empire, was the reason:(Unanimous Declaration - 2). The U.S. Constitution set up the form of the U.S. government, placing the military under civilian control, and making congress a very important part of the government.He [the king] has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.(Independence From What?). The king made the military subject to himself alone, and imposed the military upon "the little people".
The military is not even a branch of government, yet today we have devolved into considering it the most competent of U.S. institutions.
Early presidents warned against this, intimating that it was certain to lead to the loss of freedom and a return to the dictatorship of corrupt imperialistic despotism:
Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied : and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals, engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. Those truths are well established.(Greatest Source of Power Toxins?). Much more recently, one of the great U.S. generals, who later became president, was equally concerned about this issue:
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone.(The States of War Budgets). Dredd Blog has also pointed out that the military has a plan, which they openly admit, to take over the civilian government to establish "order".
It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.
But that plan relies on widespread civil disorder, widespread civil disobedience, and widespread disrespect for the civil government.
Perhaps you get the drift, then, that widespread economic woes brought on by MOMCOM via her licentious wars, disrespect of government brought on by MOMCOM's massive propaganda campaigns against the civil institutions, and the growing general belief that the country is heading in the wrong direction, are the very things MOMCOM needs to physically assert the military over the civil government as has been done already ... psychologically.
If you answer the questions "who selects the crazy candidates that run for office?", "who gives them their talking points?", "who funds them?", "who supports the military desires the most?", and "who is most paranoid about health care?", then you will have the night vision to see some of the things being done in the dark.
