USA Definitely A Totalitarian State—So What?

"The battle looks completely different when you're in the middle of it than it does to the generals up on the hill."—Woody Allen, Love and Death. The generals, or any totalitarians, cannot help but see you as dumb sheeple. After all, you actually buy their bullshit about the necessity of war, and how we have to punish the little guys, so the rich can be richer. Dumbasses.
Read Wikipedia's description of "totalitarianism":

"Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible. Totalitarian regimes stay in political power through an all-encompassing propaganda campaign, which is disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, a single party that is often marked by political repression, personality cultism, control over the economy, regulation and restriction of speech, mass surveillance, and widespread use of terror."

Now, tell me how exactly the USA does not match that description?

OK, technically, we have two political parties, instead of a single party, but those two parties differ like the gray duck and the slightly grayer duck. Both totalitarian ducks.

And you might say—OH, our media are not state-controlled—we KNOW things because the New York Times tells us so.

Sure you do.

You know exactly what the state tolerates you to know. Because, when something important leaks out, the USA does what ALL totalitarian states do: they lock people up, and/or just kill them.*
*NOTE: That was written almost a year BEFORE Snowden took his trove of important somethings from the NSA to turn them over to: everyone. And, as I said, the USA wants Snowden dead.

Well, let's see, can you convincingly argue the USA is free from:
  • all-encompassing propaganda
  • political repression
  • personality cultism
  • control over the economy
  • regulation and restriction of speech
  • mass surveillance
  • widespread use of terror
On the last one, maybe you would say—hey, me and mine haven't been terrorized by Barack Obama (or Dubya or Clinton or all those other nuts)!

Really?

Have you never heard of the widespread use of the terror wars as a means of eroding the people's will (such as it ever was) to demand the state respect their meager rights?

You might say—but that Barack Obama guy is pretty leftwing and socialist and he wouldn't be trying to subvert my freedom. Yeah, you could say that, but you'd be a horse's ass (I mean, for saying that—too).

Barack Obama is a lawyer, trained by the foremost legal-schmeegal school in the USA, Harvard Law School. His whole orientation is about using and making laws and policies to command and control everybody and everything. That's what lawyers do—they're like the kids who pull out the rules of Monopoly and show you that back on turn 3 you actually went bankrupt. Or they're like the preacher who shows you that no matter how happy you are, you WILL roast in hellfire for eternity because you made the poor choice to be born a glorified monkey instead of an angel. How silly of you!

Anyway, that's Barack Obama. He isn't any different than the Republican versions of the same thing. They're a class of people who know damned well the Outer Party and the Plebs (that's you) NEED to be controlled (euphemism: "managed") for their own good and especially for the good of the Inner Party members.

Let's imagine for a moment this wasn't true. Let's imagine for a moment Americans actually had something like total freedom to do whatever they wanted, and that the national whim (shaped as it is by YouTube, American Idol, and Limbaugh-Beck-O'Reilly) had a real impact on the formulation of national policy.

How would that work?

Oh, like this:



"I'm not a witch."

Now, recall, that creature was running for what? For the United States Fucking Senate!!

And that's why you, most especially EWE, can't have nice things. Because, I'm sorry to break this to you, most Americans are DUMB AS STONES!


God damn it!—"I'm not a witch"!!??


And that's why, no matter what you may feel about the downside of totalitarianism, you know the cameras stuck up your butt 24-7, it's a lot better than this quaint little freedom idea of yours. Because the monkeys are INSIDE the cage for a good reason.

Now, go back to watching whatever iteration of Marvel Comics universes you're calling your REAL reality, or back to watching your kids grow up to be soulless automatons of the Greater American Empire, and leave the governing to the totalitarian experts.

Sleep well, sheeple.
