A Click Away

The term 'civil society' -- bandied about by social media enthusiasts -- is not commonly understood. In its simplest sense, civil society is that which belongs to citizens.

The cessation of civil society, through privatization, has led to the diminished civil rights of citizens to political equality and social freedom. The usurping of these rights by NGOs has made civil liberties like free speech a privilege, reserved for the aristocracy and its supplicants.

With the destruction of community through displacement that severs community ties, citizens are disconnected from society, and dispossessed from participating in civil affairs. Absent an authentic civil society, the annihilation of civil liberties is just a click away.

Diminishing Consciousness

My estimate of the situation is that we have competing aspects of a fascist movement ruling the US (and World)--one secular, and one religious. With the transfer of wealth from public to private spheres in this century, the capture of media, academia, and civil society through aristocratic derivatives indicates a future of diminishing consciousness. The disconnect from reality, exemplified by NGOs like 350, helps to consolidate American fascism.

State of Affairs

The only real contest for power in the US at present is between secular and religious fascists. Everything else is just show business.

By Their Deeds

The sure sign of a fascist state is that it rules by force, not consensus.

Enemies and Spectators

Only the dispossessed, displaced and disconnected can revolt. The rest are either enemies or spectators.
