It is with great interest that Thoughts At Large reads article after article on what is happening in the United Sates and around the world concerning civil society, capitalism vs socialism, the elites and the deplorables, they wish to control. etc…etc…etc…
There are no less than 6 articles on Thoughts At Large’s desk top written by such authors as Howard Husock, Angelo Codevilla, and Jonathan Turley. There is also a list of facts attributed to Tim Allen. By far, the one that was most fun to read was the list of facts. The other articles are quite heavy and need a lot of thought. But after analyzing all the articles, Thoughts At Large is struck with this conclusion. They are all saying the same thing!
For years and years the elites of the world have tried to impose a new Feudal system on the world. In effect, the elites have tried, with a lot of success , to establish a new nobility! In order to do that they had to eliminate the middle class and create a class that in Middle Ages were called serfs! All one has to do is study what has happened in California.
The people leaving California in great numbers are the middle class. These are the people who make things work, technicians, carpenters, plumbers, mid level management, teachers, shop keepers, the list is endless. They have been driven out because they can no longer afford to live in California. This leaves the elites, high tech executives, CEO’s, movie stars, politicians, etc., the new nobility! As the saying goes, “If you have stock options you can afford to buy a house, if you do not, well, that is just tough! After the nobility, comes government employees. "The deep state", who have privileges above and beyond the average citizens as long as they do the bidding of their master. After the government employees, comes the people who are being subsidized by the government so they can take care of the desires and wants of the nobility, in other words the “serfs”.
What is happening in the world is the “serfs” have had enough and our fighting back.
If you look at the United Kingdom, you have BREXIT!
If you look at Germany, you have Angela Merkel’s chosen successor resigning!
If you look at the United States, you have the election of Donald Trump!
For the purposes of this article, Thoughts At Large is concentrating on the United States.
Donald Trump was elected by the people. The people that make this country work and are tired of having the government take 50% or more of their wages and redistributing them to the elites (nobility). In turn, the elites (nobility) decide who will be winners and who will be losers. They do this through the deep state! Unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats that enforce the dictates of the elites (nobility)! The elites (nobility) need a dependent class in order to increase and maintain their power. The middle class is a danger to that power. Just like the rise of the merchant class and tradesmen was a danger to nobility in the Middle Ages.
As we can all see the nobility are not giving up without a fight.
For the first time in Thoughts At Large’s life time there has not been a peaceful transfer of power as a result of the 2016 election. The nobility are no longer even giving lip service to “the will of the people”!
Case in Point:
Quote from Jonathan Turley.
“The House has its share of infamies, great and small, real and symbolic, and has been the scene of personal infamies from brawls to canings. But the conduct of Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the State of the Union address this week will go down as a day of infamy for the chamber as an institution.
While it has long been a tradition for House speakers to remain stoic and neutral in listening to the address, Pelosi appeared intent on mocking President Trump from behind his back with sophomoric facial grimaces and head shaking, culminating in her ripping up a copy of his address.”
Quote from Angelo Codevilla.
“From President Obama on down, the political, educational, media, and corporate establishment had long since taken for granted that placing the opinions, interests, tastes, and the rights of the rest of America on the same plane as their own amounts to “false equality.”
They had come to regard us as lower beings. No matter whether they attributed our purported inferiority to our alleged racism, sexism, etc., or just plain stupidity, they negated the possibility of common citizenship with us. The moment that Hillary Clinton’s reference to those disinclined to vote for her as “deplorables” and “irredeemables” made this unmistakable, Donald Trump’s victory became possible.”
Quotes from Tim Allen.
“Women are upset at Trump’s naughty words -- they also bought 80 million copies of 50 Shades of Gray”.
“Not one feminist has defended Sarah Sanders. It seems women’s rights only matter if those women are liberal.”
“Chelsea Clinton got out of college and got a job at NBC that paid $900,000 per year. Her mom flies around the country speaking out about white privilege.”
“Russia donated $0.00 to the Trump campaign. Russia donated $145,600,000 to the Clinton Foundation. But Trump was the one investigated!”
There is much more, but you get the point!
What is the one thing that will give the deep state the ability to completely control the lives of the American citizen, or as they will now be known “serfs”?
The answer is simple:
Socialized medicine! It goes by many names, Single payer, Medicare for all, Public Option, but the bottom line is complete government control!
If the government controls your health care, the government controls you! You will be in effect:
“Property of the State”
Serfs, this is your wake up call!!
