‘Soviet States Democratized Better When They Had A Deep-Rooted Nationalist Movement’

Communism, Democracy, Fascism, Nationhood, Populism, Russia, Socialism, The West

We are propagandized daily about the dangers of nationalism (only among Western nations, mind you).

Nationalism, the statists tell us, is fascism by any other name. It’s certainly never a benign force.

A scholar from “the University of Toronto … argues,” however, that former Soviet states democratized better when they had a deep-rooted nationalist movement.”

Estonia is thriving. Lo and behold, nationalism “was stronger in Estonia, which was independent from 1918 to 1940, than in Moldova, which was ruled by Romania or Russia for centuries.”

It’s so intuitive that national cohesion and nationalism would enhance the willingness to submit to mass society, namely, democracy.

Global Support For Globalism As Opposed To Populism

The Economist has cause to celebrate:

“Majority of World Population Supports Globalism, Survey Finds.”

It would appear that, “The global public favors cooperation between nations, thinks immigration is a good thing and believes climate scientists, according to a poll of 10,000 people in every region of the world.”

The key likely lies in the term “global public.”

These policies mentioned benefit the world’s poor and the poor are in a majority of billions.

Democratic governments are meant to advance the welfare of their citizens, chiefly, but they don’t.

Created by democratic governments, globalist organizations give billions of poor a lien on the assets (including the patrimony) of their citizens. These globalist orgs do so through unrepresentative global organizations-–UN, EU, WTO, IMF, WB, OECD, UN-Habitat, on and on.

In democracies (and their international offshoots), everything is up for grabs. In exchange for power, wealth is forcibly distributed by taking from one and giving to the other—from rich to poor; from North to South.

Democracy is when everything is up for grabs without constitutional limits. Globalism is an extension of that—what can we smart citizens of the world do with your funds and patrimony, little peon. Globalism is democracy on a global scale.

 

Deep State: Spreading Socialism From Within The Bowels Of The Bureaucracy

Democracy, Government, Socialism, The State

It’s impossible to fire a government employer, so, for Stuart Karafa, subverting the will of the people is a perk of the job.

Karafa works for the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), while being paid by the State Department. That’s YOU.

Here is Project Veritas on how Deep Statists spread socialism from within the bowels of the bureaucracy:

Tim Fitton thinks the Deep State is real. But we already knew that.

UPDATED (9/19): Never Trumpers Plot Against Deplorables, Urge Conservatives To Vote Democratic

Democracy, Donald Trump, Elections, Neoconservatism, Republicans

Glenn Greenwald has brought up an issue I meant to tell you about some time ago:

DC ‘progressive’ elites [have] been forming policy groups and having lunches and dinners with Bill Kristol to plan joint Dem/neocon activism.

Its way worse than what GG says.

Via The Economist (Aug 9th 2018):

Never Trumpers, as President Donald Trump’s Republican critics are known, … Led by conservative pundits such as Max Boot, David Brooks, Bill Kristol, David Frum and George Will, they are few in number, gallantly in favour of things like free trade and fiscal discipline that Republicans used to care about, and probably doomed. Mr Trump’s hold over Republicans seems unbreakable. Almost 90% approve of his performance. “There is no Republican Party, there’s a Trump party,” says John Boehner, a former Republican congressional leader.

That conclusion, sharpened by the failure of elected Republicans to resist the president’s pandering to Vladimir Putin, has forced Never Trumpers to a moment of reckoning. Messrs Frum, Boot and Will urge conservatives to vote Democratic in the mid-terms. Mr Brooks and two Republican movers-and-shakers, Reed Galen and Juleanna Glover, are floating the idea of a new centrist party. A group part-founded by Mr Kristol, founder of the Weekly Standard, hopes to launch a primary challenge to Mr Trump. Among the more or less openly disaffected Republicans Mr Kristol is courting to lead the assault are Governor John Kasich of Ohio, Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Mitt Romney and Nikki Haley, Mr Trump’s ambassador to the UN. If none will oblige, Mr Kristol suggests he might have a crack at it himself.

Once in office, Trump almost never hired supporters, and gave preference to Never Trumpers. Now, he “Faces Mid-Term Catastrophe.” Wonder why?!
