After 2 years of trump, this will happen

This anger was very predictable. The circus has always had a binomial tinge, but the triad of fascism, capitalism and socialism has always had a deep layer of protective shield to mask the fact that it is part and parcel a manifestation of human nature.

Anger is existential dread, of having to face this sad reality, and the three ring circus is the outward manifestation of the communal expression of this denied fact. Who is on first? Who is on Second? Now.

We are all led to believe in the impermiability, the finality of institutions and ideologies. Anger is a predicate, and the benefits of war reap only a short lasting lapse in memory. Then, the good times over, the spoils of war having been wasted on the young, waking up one day from their spoiled revelries, get angry again.

Soon, very soon, the anger will engulf itself into blood on the streets. Cities will glisten with all sorts of government buildings set ablaze and the sounds of agony being shouted all throughout the land.

A sweet sight it will be. :evilfun:

lol. democratically elected fascism. cool story, bro’.

What’s the equivalent of the Australian Senate in the U.S., the place where proposed bills are debated and passed? He can’t be a dictator if he passes his bills through the democractic institutions.

It happened in Germany, circa 1939 CE.

And a “fall guy” is a scapegoat. Right?

I advise you to read Peter Sloterdijk’s “Rage and Time”.

“Not with a bang, but a whimper.” (Eliot)

Anyone else do a search of past political elections? They go back to the first years of this forum.

Not much has changed, only names and candidates.

There’s more to it than that. Yes the NSAPD was democratically elected, but it had to pass an Enabling Act to ensure fascism. Is there an equivalent Act in the U.S.? If so, what are the chances of it passing?

I tend not to take people seriously who say “cool story bro” and use stupid one liners. Its effimenant as fuck, like some douchey hipster.

I fobbed off his comments with such a reply because it’s ill-informed rubbish. Leftists think anything that opposes them is fascist. It’s childish.

The reason I have a problem with your comment is it implies that 1. this nation has democratic elections in the sense where people have actual power. (this is false, because only the richest candidates are voteable, which is undemocratic and more like an oglicharchy.) 2. the statement imples that fascism cannot arise as the result of democratic elections (this is also false.)

I also have a problem with the left/right binary dichotomy. For instance, Irrelus did not identify as a socialist or fascist, yet you categorized him as a “leftist”. Really it is a spectrum, people share certain values and they disagree on other values. People associate socialism with leftism and clearly Irrelus posted against socialism. The very idea of partisanry is degrading civilzation.

In context, I was laughing at Ierrellus’ claim that fascism is elected.

I’ll ask this again (third time and no answer yet): Does America have a senate, or equivalent, where laws are debated, voted on, then passed or rejected? Is there an equivalent to the Enabling Act from the Wiemar Republic in the American constitution or laws?

K: yes, we have a senate and a house. the senate has 2 members for each state thus 100 members and the house
has proportional seating with no more than 435 members. The house proposes laws, the senate either accepts
or rewrites it and sends it back for approval. a bill can yo-yo between house and senate for a bit, while they
work out the language. Finally the senate approves and sends it to the president who signs or doesn’t.
I don’t know the “enabling act” from the Wiemar Republic. This is a very rough explanation and by no means
a full and complete explanation.

Doesnt matter if we have a Senate, its all garbage and bullshit. And yes, you’re right, fascism is not elected, its all a farce and made to look as if it is elected.

Okay. Thanks for the explanation. The Senators are elected too, I presume.
The Enabling Act was the legislation Hitler passed to dissolve all separation of powers and give him, and his party, entire authority over the country.

F: Okay. Thanks for the explanation. The Senators are elected too, I presume.
The Enabling Act was the legislation Hitler passed to dissolve all separation of
powers and give him, and his party, entire authority over the country.

K: a version of the enabling act is what bush jr. did in response to 9/11.
We in America call it the “Patriot act” which is fancy language for the
“Enabling act”.
