|The Cathedral of the Wartocracy|
In so doing we have cast off the shackles of the names the government gives itself --the names the government thinks it should use to describe itself (see Why Does MOMCOM Hate America? which notes the name change from Department of War to Department of Defense).
In the final analysis, since the time that it became addicted to the oil that was under the lands of foreign nations in the Middle East, Wartocracy has been the form of government that most aptly describes the heart and soul of the entirety of the U.S. government as well as its allies in Western Civilization (The Universal Smedley - 2).
It is also described well by the acronym "MOMCOM", an entity with a very old religion.
It is a government whose vast military has an internal spy empire (Homeland Security Happy Daze - 2) which incessantly, "24/7", spies on the communications, political discourse, and business activity of its citizens (On The Origin of Security - 2).
So, when we look at the secular belief system of the founders (The Greatest Source Of Power Toxins?), it becomes fair to wonder (along with some generals) and it becomes fair to analyze all the dynamics involved, in order to discern the time or era when the coup took place (A Tale of Coup Cities - 4).
It is a long way from a Constitutional Republic (containing a democratic design for electing people who are to officially manage the cares of the electorate) to a military ideology gone so crazy that it morphs those traditional government dynamics into a Wartocracy.
It is also a long way from believing that war is an unfortunate social disease to believing that war is a form of art (Is War An Art or Is War A Disease?).
To cover such a long distance, war must be preached and taught 24/7 in the educational institutions (see The Intellectual War Monger and The Intellectual War Monger - 2).
And finally, the military serving media, via movies, TV series, publishing companies, etc. (GE Serves The Pentagon On TV Near Yoo) must become a daily presence reminding the populace over and over again of "the glories" of war (A Closer Look At MOMCOM's DNA - 4).
For example, "The U.S. military now has more people in its marching bands than the State Department has in its foreign service" (The Big Taboo, NY Times).
