How 'bout Nazi US?

For our PhD friend who disagrees (well, he has Permanent head Damage" after all):

Fascism is the fusion of corporations with the state... something like "private public partnership"... Where did I heard this before?

YES, the Nazis lost the war only in Germany and Japan - their supporters thrived in the US and in the City of London; Germany and Japan are STILL an occupied countries. Fascist Germany was the Anglo-American proxy against the Soviet Union, pretty much like Ukraine is now the proxy of the same interests against Russia!

The "leftists" "Democrats" are extreme far right, NOT lefties... their interest do NOT align with the interests of the working class but with the corporations exclusively -> fascism!

Nailed it! Private corporate gov merger.

It’s really autocracy sprinkled with communism for the peasants.

THe same families are behind the scenes with their minions running the show.

The same bankers who funded Hitlers war.

I agree except for the last part. Leftists are ALWAYS for more government control. They may decorate it with deceptive language, but they ALWAYS want the government to have it's nose in everyone's lives.

The Nazis were extreme far leftists. They've only been labeled as far right because they opposed communism.

An easy way to look at is, what are people in America labeled who simply want the government to leave them alone?

In a leftist dictatorship, the political is deeply in control of the economic; in fascism, the economic leads the government...

We are in the seconds case, thus we are fascists... not to mention that we support "in-your-face" Nazis in 404... (that should give it away).

Fair enough, there are many commonalities between the two.

Left, right, commie, democracy, monarchy, dictator, national socialist, fascism, republicanism...etc....etc..... ALL of it falls under the umbrella of 'collectivism'

Collectivist always use enFORCEment to make the people obedient, the only difference is the degrees of brutality amongst the violent collectivist state.

Correct. Nazis are often labeled as "Right" when they are in fact "Left."

We see the Left here going for "normalizing" criminal and civil depraved conduct, while seeking to ram it down our throats and impose said conduct upon our children. They always seek control and destroying individual rights, every time.

All I know is, one side promotes sawing off girls' breasts and wearing masks in the park and submitting to the State when the State trots out its dubious "Experts" to tell you you need experimental chemicals injected in your own body -- and the other side is OPPOSED to this batshit horeshit.

The current political system in the United States has been most accurately described as an Inverted Totalitarian Technocracy. That is when bureaucrats are appointed to agencies such as DOT, NIH, NIAID, CDC, FDA and HHS, then give out marching orders from the billionaire corporatists who pull their strings due to their "largesse," so to speak. Witness Fauci and Bill Gates. The recommendations they make essentially run the policy-making machinery of the government. It is the tail wagging the dog if ever there was.

It's more evil than inverted totalitarianism, and it has a lot to do with eugenics.

They don't like it that the yellow vests protested in France, and they don't like it that people everywhere might rise up against them. There are too many people. With their massive wealth and power, the club at the very top has decided that they must do what they must do, and if the people under them want their good jobs and vacation homes then they'd better do what they're told and not ask too many questions.

The way to keep the rest of the population in line is through censorship of opinions that oppose the desired narratives. Or, censorship of jobs for those unlucky enough to speak their minds in opposition to the evil.

And now the BIG GUY is going to try to mandate the gene therapy shots for everyone... We all must refuse.... They cannot take control if most of us stand up. The uni-party/Military/bioppharmaceutical/globalist Nexus is beginning to pull out all the stops. They are worried about all of us we stood up the first time and that their plans and actions were so obviously nefarious and totalitarian that they are doubling and tripling down now.

This is a stupid comment. Stop it with the Nazi nonsense already. This just feeds Leftist/Antifa insanity.

What IS here is totalitarianism. This is a totalitarianism that is in a purer form than has ever existed. THIS is what needs to be focused on.

I apologize if this seems harsh, but we really need to quite [quit] it with the old tropes which, like "democracy," "far right," and other terms from the past only are tools of manipulation, appropriation and confusion.

The use of terms like "Nazi" [removed comma] does not help our cause.

Expand full comment

Apparently, you are either thin skinned, or irritable this evening. Jpeach's comment is not a "stupid" comment. It's not "nonsense" to use the term "Nazi." There is over a century of history that led into Nazi Germany and ongoing processes that bred organized Fascism and Stalinism and Maoism. Yes, we are at a "purer" (one term that can be used) form perhaps, breaking out into totalitarianism, in that there are additional means of intruding and surveilling. The basics are the same.

Right out of the box, you used ad hominem, then with a non-apology apology said there are words we need to quit using., and then labeled them as words and terms from the past as tools of manipulation, etc.

My experience is "leftism" includes throwing out "terms from the past" and regulating people's speech. Those are hallmarks of totalitarianism.

I find your comment ironic, at least.

Expand full comment

Alright, but I disagree. Nazism is a long defunct political movement. It was a response to Bolshevik Communism and it was located in a particular era, ca. 80 years ago. It had brutal, police-state character. It is doubtful that it sought "world domination," however bad it may have been.

Today's tyrants are quite set on domination and annihilation of most people in the world.

So what word is worse than Nazi? “Totalitarian” just doesn’t have the same evil image of our current picture. We ARE in the middle of a holocaust! Our DOD and gov. agencies are pretty intent on killing us within the next decade. What term suites you? When I think of Nazi, I think of a controlled regime that doesn’t give a shizmo about its citizens. Surveillance, control, and power are current driving goals of our attackers. Sounds similar to me. The big difference is Hitler was a pacifist compared to Anthony Fauci. If you compare numbers of disabled and murdered alone, there’s no comparison.

Masks have hurt our children physically & psychologically. They get headaches and are behind in speech usage and learning. The masks end up being woven petri cloth, full of bacteria & dirt. And social distancing is a joke. What a nightmare for parents and teachers.

There isn’t a strong enough word to describe this kind of incompetent & unnecessary evil. It’s unethical & immoral to force our youth to participate in unscientific propaganda, all in the name of control. Hopefully parents pull their kids from these schools. I’d go off-grid to save my kids from this repulsive evilness.

I actually fear Bolsheviks quite a bit. They are very insidious. But let's focus on today's totalitarians, the so-called Anti-fascists, the self-appointed protectors of "democracy," who make a mockery of democracy.

These pharmaco-tyrants have inserted their tentacles into everything. We have never seen anything like this except, perhaps, for the evil Bolsheviks-Communists, Maoist Communists and Communists just about everywhere we found them and still find them today.

Do not let the Communists divert your attention from themselves with their misdirection to, to what? Nazis? How about Confederates? And who next, the Carthaginians? These people are masters of deflection and stealing language.

If I have accomplished anything tonight I hope that I have managed to help people think about using language precisely and about seeing that these tyrants are primarily people of the LEFT. Thus, they are most akin to the Communists of the early 20th Century.

If you do not get that correct, you do not understand their tactics.

Bret Weinstein said we are in the part of the library where these past atrocities occurred though it doesn't match any of them specifically. You are totally right that they are masters of deflection and stealing language. Absolutely. The way they've managed to get everyone focused on slavery in the past and reparations totally saturates the category "slavery" when human trafficking and technological slavery is their end. I know what you are saying, but I think finding patterns from the past as partly applicable furthers understanding. This can also inspire people to resistance. I just finished a novel on Iran about executions and people imprisoned for dissidence. We are not there YET. Or at the Rape of Nanking, the next novel I've begun, but we could get there as as much as we don't want to think so, we are all capable of the worst and the best in humanity. We must pull towards Dylan's

I disagree with everything except your last sentence.

Nazis are alive and thriving - see Ukraine.

Communism goes back to the earlier-mid 1800s.

Captured Nazis in WWII had the U.S. mapped out by town, they had an encyclopedic knowledge base about every community, its geography, its demographics. I am aware of one German explaining to his captor about a small town in CT that was one of his assignments. Detailed knowledge. (His captor ended up punching his lights out, the information was so granular).

What was fascism? Per Wiki

forcible suppression of opposition,

subordination of individual interests for the perceived good of the nation and race…

Anti conservatism, governed by DICTATORSHIP.

Which two leaders were fascists (per Wiki)and how do they describe them:

Benito Mussolini (left) and Adolf Hitler (right),

the leaders of Fascist Italy and …. *** Nazi Germany, ***respectively

So…. Nazi Germany = Fascist DICTATOR

Nazi’s were the brutal enforcers, and by the way, they didn’t only murder Jews.

They murdered anyone who disobeyed them. Including Italians opposed to Mussolini (my grandfather was in the rebellion against that monster), homosexuals, gypsies, the disabled , Germans who helped Germans with Jewish heritage … among others.

It’s the SPIRIT of the conduct by the oppressive Nazi’s that the comment above was made in regards to the heavy handed nature against the judge -

as a warning of learning from the past to NOT make the same mistake in the present or future. Hitler started with censorship, then switched to public shaming the Jews accusing them of carrying disease . Have a look at the many newspaper articles on the awful disparaging cartoons mocking them .

The playbook of public shaming is the same one being used against those dissenters against the vaccine right now, and against anyone voicing objection to men dressing as women and being allowed to enter female change rooms, and women sports. Same blueprint.

It will escalate if we don’t call it out for what it is now collectively.

Let’s NOT keep quiet this time in history.

It is totalitarianism , it is Dictatorship . It must not be accepted or permitted.

Fascism: the unison of all powers: state, military, industry. We see even more institutions (specifically, all of them) consolidated in to a 'fascio', or bundle. Although Leftists things like Wikipedia like to link it to "far right" movements, the truth is that Leftists can be fascistic too, perhaps even better than rightists or conservative.

And lets not forget the evils of Bolshevism and Communism while we are thinking of fascism, as someone else aptly pointed out. Okay, that done, let's get back to work on our present-day tyrants.on

Jordan Peterson has been going on about some recent research (of his, I believe) that describes Leftist Totalitarianism and the traits associated with it. fascinating stuff.

Expand full comment

Good.

And it would be good if Dr. Peterson were more open to learning a thing or two, just as he recommends for his audience, rather angrily and emotionally -- and seemingly uncontrollably -- at times. His package of ideas does not seem to me to fit together well. That is sad. I like Dr. Peterson.

I promoted him among my recipients when he first came on the scene, but then he blew it in my opinion. I tried [strike: to] contacting him multiple times before and after his psychological and emotional breakdown, and that has never been successful. Instead he, at least as I see it, apparently lets himself be guided around by some folks -- I am not sure who -- behind the scenes. To me it appears palpable. I do not see that it has had a good effect.

interesting. I like listening to him (only began fairly recently). yeah, he is certainly very opinionated and steadfast into defending his right to state his opinions. to be honest, if I went through what he has gone through, I would be emotional too. he doesn't sound like the type of person who would allow anyone to 'lead him around' but who knows with people in the public eye. you never really know, I have no illusions about that.

Chris said: "Nazi’s were the brutal enforcers"

What enforcer is not brutal?

It matters not the political ideology, communism, national socialism, republicanism, monarchy, dictator, socialist, democracy, fascism...etc...etc.... they ALL require enFORCEment, this leads to a truth that cannot be rebuked, repudiated or impugned and that is the aforementioned political ideologies all fall under the umbrella of collectivism......with the only difference being the degrees of brutality.

Expand full comment

Lisa,

The "Loosed for a short season" you referred to has been explicitly explained as a time when he will be allowed by God to try and persuade the resurrected evil persons, AFTER Christ has come, taken all the resurrected saints and those which are alive at that time, to heaven for that "millennium" (thousand year period) which will be spent in Heaven (temporarily) to review and justify God's Executive Judgement. If you seek light in the matter, please read "The Great Controversy" by E.G. White, an end time prophet of the Most High God. Cross-examine with the Word of God to be certain of all that she puts forth. The book is not new. It's about 150 years old now, so it's not like it has never undergone scrutiny. It stands firm and boldly as the Truth of God so does.

Many, if not most have been sold a bad bill of goods, by the false preachers in sheep's clothing. "To the LAW and the TESTIMONY, If they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no 'light' in them." Isa. 8:20

One will hear of false doctrines, such as "A thousand year reign of Christ here on earth, where the erring will be given a second chance to repent. This is a lie of the Serpent's divining. Many, many false doctrines have been formulated to mislead and confuse to the detriment of souls everywhere.

The world is in massive trouble, being deceived and unwilling to repent of any wrong-doing. The civilizations from Babylon to the present are Pagan to the core, and the false religions thereof are a disgrace and an affront to the God of Creation. He will not strive with mankind over this for ever. There WILL be a reconning coming our way in the not too distant future. It's called "The Time of Jacob's Trouble" when the Patriarch wrestled with God and prevailed, just as it signifies how we, believers, must wrestle with the circumstances, and pray earnestly during a time to come when things will be extremely unsavory and seemingly unbearable. But there is hope in Christ!

Hi Ray, thanks for your thoughtful reply 🙏 There is Hope in Christ, amen!

Yes, I believe we are in Satan’s short season. I believe the Bible supports that. I believe Jesus’ first resurrection has already happened which means tribulation and Armageddon has already occurred. (Emperor Nero being the Antichrist)

We are in the last days, like the days of Noah (Satan and his fallen angels have returned and are once again creating chimeric species and beings in an attempt to destroy Man [God’s Seed] - its always been a “seed war”).

The Bible tells us the satanists will do a lot of damage, but they will not win, they lose. Then comes the final judgement and the eternal reign of Christ. Amen 🙏

Onward! ❤️

AlmostLAstRepublicaninSeattle, how did I not allow jpeach his or her opinion? There is a difference between rebuttals and criticism and formal or mechanistic control.

Women are extremely intelligent and talented. Who knows, maybe even more than males in important ways. However, steering the ships of state, industry, culture, and the churches has been a disaster.

I liked you remark Mr. Bernayssauce. Notice, few of the people's remarks posted here indicating their anger regarding mine, go off on a rant about Communism and it Bolshevik roots. Most, if not all, no doubt do not understand the programming that they have undergone and from which they are acting with robotic conditioning. They are helping to perpetuate the insidiously evil idea that somehow Nazism in Germany started brewing in that nation just out of nothing. It just sprung up out of nowhere. No, it is worse than that, it just sprung up out of some darkness in the European soul, some illiberal, racist (particularly anti-Jewish, anti-Gypsy, anti-Communist, anti-Slavic, etc.) ugliness that wanted to send tanks to every nation in the globe. This is truly a childish dissection of that period if left at this one-sided stage. It completely ignores half of the story, it ignores the evils of the cultural degradation occurring during the Wiemar period and the very real threat of Communism that was sweeping European nations.

Back to my point, in 2023, we are increasingly able to see true totalitarian desire for control of the world. It is dressed up in an outfit about "saving the planet" and saving "democracy." The thing is that the people driving this really do believe this. I recall being exposed to the zeal of the depopulators in the 1970s in one of my college courses in particular. We were assigned a text by the Club of Rome.

The problem is that these people do not understand how to achieve a just and peaceful world that is well-balanced with regard to populations, the economy and the natural environment. Like some of the slur tossers here, through a failure to resort to imagination or well-articulated expression based on The Good, all of us possess the propensity to simply default towards force and abuse. The oligarchs today are no different.

The use of the term "Nazi" helps us to understand that our current situation really is analogous to Nazism, and especially in the forced medical procedures that were the real horrors of the Nazi regime.

Nazism was a biomedical program to purify the race: eugenics. To cull the bad seed. Eugenics and the Nazi narrative of medical procedures (and experiments) for the greater good, trumping individual freedom, are again raising their ugly heads.

In Nazi Germany, the medical profession was enlisted to further their eugenics program. And now? Now the medical profession is once again being enlisted for dark deeds, is it not?

As for the left ... no, I agree with a recent writer who pointed out that the left are becoming fanatics aligned with the government's censorship program against wrong-think. Many of them are certain of their opinions and thus believe that those of us who disagree must be wrong, and therefore-- to protect society-- must be censored. I'd say this manipulation of the left is deliberate.

Their focus is on European, Christian societies --- but they have had their obvious run in Asian, African and South American societies as well.

I believe it was the Nazis who imposed the yellow star on the Jews. I wonder if there were any judges that dared oppose it?

No sorry its not nationalsozialists, its the power of pharma and medicine lobby, what has this todo with rightwing, there is nothing rightwing left here in germany, it is the power of pharma. I am tired of hearing i am nationalsozialist again when there is nothing here but its pharma pushing their agenda and the ceo of pharma are no nationalsozialists.

Pharma and the medical lobby are serving the state, which is itself serving a dark agenda. Isn't this exactly what happened in Nazi Germany? It is.

Were there any German judges who ruled against the yellow star? Were there any attorneys who brought such a case in front of the German legal system? What happened to them?

These were purged from the system at the beginning, much like doctors who opposed the eugenicist bent (euthanizing the 'unfit,' for example) were purged from the system at the beginning.

And today? Today, which doctors are being purged from the system?

The Nazi analogy is appropriate. It helps us to understand what's happening today.

Forgive me, but what does this mean?

I don't know if you're being sarcastic (which would make your reply quite humorous).

It's a slang term for older people, supposedly of the boomer generation, but it's applied to most anyone who is "old and out of touch with current day", usually tech stuff.

I'm not of the boomer generation, but I still happily embrace not being in touch with most aspects of modern culture. I'll take my 1980's & 1990's culture over the current insanity everyday and twice on Sunday.

No kidding, the 80’s! Ahhh! The best. I was young & dumb but life was great. Best music & stellar economy! Only wish I would’ve started distrusting gov. then. Older generation always knows best. We should’ve listened. Too busy wearing my “ sunglasses at night”. Thanks for the flashback😎

"Best economy?" Hmmm. Well, we would agree that this is bad economy now, very bad. But the fix in the economy was already in in the 70s: they were packing the U-Haul trucks for China, rolling up American factories and agriculture.

I agree, it is a category that younger people like to toss out there and make maladaptive judgements by. They cut themselves off from those of us who have been in the trenches for decades.

"Youth, wasted on the young," is the old saying. But I very much support young people who are coming up. Many are much more advanced at their stage than I was. I learned much only by experience.

We are going to need this next generation of young men and women to be TOUGH. Many of them are.

I agree. All the slang and smears do not help our case. In a climate of growing totalitarianism, we need to be all the more mindful of words and their meanings. We don't want to be the unwitting perpetrators of Newspeak (1984).

Very similar to the Trump indictments, in character and validity, anyway.

A large part of the focus Is on legalizing their criminal conduct, and criminalizing ordinary citizens legal conduct.

It's all the same eight steps used again and again!

1*Distance yourself from wrong doing

2*Deny all accusations

3*Discredit any dissenting views

4*Delay important information

5*Deceive the public opinion

6*Distort the data with stats

7*Divide any opposition

8*And let disarray muddy the facts

If you do these steps correctly

You can turn it all around

Until the sky is far below us

And stars are underground

Wrong is suddenly honest

Right is full of pain

They use these dastardly tactics

To drive us all insane

And so we have a clown world

Filled with double speak

Unjust courts

Corrupt officials

And leaders soft and weak

Integrity is dying

Commitment comes and goes

Courage something to shy from

Friends become your foes

The clown world

The circus

The transfolk cabaret

Just chaos and confusion

Every f*cking day.

"This text, first published in 1941, provides a comprehensive analysis of the rise and nature of National-Socialism, and is the only such analysis written from within Hitler’s Germany. Its central thesis is that two states co-existed in National-Socialist Germany—hence, Fraenkel’s invention of the concept of the dual state. This was comprised of a normative state (which protected the legal order as expressed in legislation, decisions of the courts, and decisions of administrative bodies) and a prerogative state (governed by the ruling party, and unrestrained by legal guarantees). The relationship and conflict between these states is analyzed through decisions of the German courts and the development of judicial practice. The book is divided into three parts. The first part describes the existing legal order. The second part attempts to show that the parallel structures within Germany radically affected German politics and society. The third part delves into the relationship between the dual Nazi state and German capitalism. It asks whether the rise of the dual state was a consequence of a crisis in capitalism. While this book is primarily a first-hand account and analysis of the dual state’s operation in National-Socialist Germany, it retains its vital relevance for the theory of democracy in the twenty-first century."

Yes! The normative state and the prerogative state. So for example you might have a tax case pending while you're in covid quarantine.

I have to admit I have not yet read "The Dual State" by Ernst Fraenkel but I plan to soon.

And the hospitals crumble to dust

Dark Times ahead! ANYONE who tries to take a stand against the Evil infesting the Earth is going to get attacked. Does that mean we will cower in fear and acquiesce to their insanity? No, NO, and HELL NO!!! We CANNOT! The very survival of the human race is at stake here!!! Thousands upon thousands of generations yet to be born! We CANNOT be the "weak link in the chain" and let humanity be destroyed on OUR WATCH!!!!! No matter the personal cost to ourselves and our families, we MUST make sure that this horror of a Totalitarian Takeover of the planet GETS STOPPED! And THIS TIME when we say "NEVER AGAIN", we have to really MEAN IT!!!!!!!

"Live free or die!"

And the time is rapidly approaching when that will not be just a nice motto. The sh*t is close to hitting the you-know-what. It's going to be the Alamo, figuratively speaking, all over again—time to draw the line in the sand and STAND OUR GROUND! But THIS TIME, WE outnumber the bad guys! After running roughshod over the human race for centuries, the super-wealthy Psychos are about to get put in their place! Just don't expect it to be pretty. They want blood (they ARE damned Vampires!) and blood they will get— but this time it's going to be THEIRS! They have gone 'way too far and have finally awakened enough of us to make a difference. The newly-awakened are just coming to figure out what is really going on. And as they witness the carnage, they will become more ready and willing to resist this final move by the Globalists — their "Great Reset" Great FLOP! The Globalists thought it would be easy to herd the dumbed-down masses into the slaughterhouse, but they are learning that they have BADLY miscalculated!

The most terrifying aspect of this, to me, is that (according to the best of my understanding) he correctly interpreted the law - the government did NOT have the right to impose these mandates, just like they did not have the right to quarantine healthy citizens or censor free speech.

They're making an example of him to ensure that no one dares to challenge their illegal flagrant violations of law & liberty.

The criminals are in power, and they are persecuting the just with the laws intended to prevent injustice.

Biden's "Alcohol Czar" is encouraging a two beer or other alcohol drink limited to two per week for men and one for women because alcohol is a health hazard. Of course, you can take as many vaccines per week as you like. I believe this also going to further the decline in birth rate - just sayin'.

I would agree wholeheartedly Meryl. From the beginning of this rouse some 4 years ago, it was immediately clear that Germany was one of those countries, like Canada, New Zealand, Australia, that were being used as test cases for the sharper end of the crimes & tyranny being trialed globally. Indeed it could be argued that the brutal & disturbing past of Germany is indeed alive...
