And how are her and DiFis Hunters Point and Treasure Island property scams going?
I think we tribal humans, over the millennia, have developed an ingrained, genetic need for a common enemy, to protect our particular tribe, and its especially strong in the less reasoning and emotion-driven among us today.
USA now has no real, palpable common enemy as weve had in the past (England, natives, north-south, Germany/Japan, USSR...).
Pick your enemy, feel that ancient battle mode energizing you, work yourself up and start engaging...
The children are the cultural Marxists future. Have been for many decades.
Our children have been specifically targeted a century by our pubic schools, news, media, churches and now social media. We had John Deweys early 1900s Progressive (Marxist) anti-home schooling influence, followed by The Frankfurt Schools mid-1900s social Marxist plan for children, then Hollywoods 1950s communist influences, then NEAs No God push in our schools.
Then, the 1960s CPUSA push of college youts for war protests, drug use and wanton fornication, then the 1980s sitcoms ridiculing parents, then the 1990s queer push, then the 2000s self-esteem facade, and now social media feeding their ignorance and arrogance.
George Washington on political parties, from his farewell address:
I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State, with particular reference to the founding of them on geographical discriminations. Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally.
This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.
The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.
Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight), the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.
It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.
