I recently had a birthday and I would like to share some of my knowledge with you. With age comes both wisdom and pain. I would not wish to share any of my pain even if it were possible. The wisdom I would like to share involves mass political movements. Having obtained five college and university degrees in fields like mathematics, the natural sciences, psychology, business, and biochemistry, it may seem strange that I have been a self taught student of history for the past fifty years.
I readily admit that I took only the required history courses while earning my college degrees. However, I believe that a human usually can continue to learn throughout an entire lifetime and should do so whenever possible. Possibly the nutrients of phosphorous bound Serine and the Omega-3, DHA, have kept my central nervous system in good working order. Unfortunately, my studies of the biochemistry of arthritis have not been nearly so successful. So my fifty years of post university studies have resulted in, I believe, an in depth understanding of history. I especially became a student of mass political movements and the underlying causes of these movements.
Fanaticism is the basis of all revolutionary and mass political movements of change. It is often difficult to understand that the communist fanatic, the fascist fanatic, the Jewish fanatic, the Christian fanatic, and all other promoters of mass terrorism have a core set of values and beliefs. The absolute core belief of all fanatics is the lack of belief in themselves as individuals. All fanatics have an unwanted self that they dislike and wish to be rid of. Hence, a fanatic is more than willing to give his allegiance to an individual or cause that will free him from a hated and failed self and obtain a new identity.
There is a time when a society is ready for a mass political movement. In pre-Hitlerian Germany it was often a toss up whether a restless youth would join the communists or the Nazis. In the overcrowded state of Czarist Russia, the simmering Jewish population was ready for both revolution and Zionism. Weizmann quotes his mother: ” Whatever happens I shall be well off. If Shemuel ( the revolutionary son ) is right, we shall be happy in Russia ; and if Chaim ( the Zionist ) is right then I shall go to live in Palestine.”
Today in the United States, there are two opposing mass political movements. The Communist oriented mass political movement is led and was started by Hillary Clinton. Ms. Clinton was driven to a state of psychotic fanaticism after she lost her lifelong goal of being elected to the office of President in 2016. Ms. Clinton’s anger, disgust, and hatred were directed at Donald Trump who Ms. Clinton knows robbed her of her lifelong dream. A second defeat, once to Barack Obama and then to Donald Trump, drove Ms. Clinton to an abnormal hatred of Donald Trump and all things related to Donald Trump.
The opposing mass political movement consists of the fundamental supporters of Donald Trump. By any sane and sensible standard, Mr. Trump suffered a tremendous amount of political harassment during his four years as President. He was impeached twice on false charges. Also, Mr. Trump inherited a federal governmental bureaucracy that did not maintain a fair and just relationship with his administration.
The purpose of this article is not to promote either the Hillary Clinton supporters nor the supporters of Donald Trump. It is imperative to point out that both political movements are involved in an internecine fight which has surpassed the boundaries of anything the U.S. has seen since the U.S. Civil War. The political destruction has now reached the state, county, and city levels of all regions in the U.S. One example is the political recall of the Governor of California. California is the largest state in population in the U.S. and is strongly supportive of the democrat party. A recall vote of the governor of California would be a massive political defeat for the democrat party. Also, the governor of the state of New York is under massive criticism related to his alleged sexual abuse of a number of women who worked for him in the past. Governor Cuomo is also under severe criticism for how he mishandled the Covid-19 crisis in his state. New York is tied for third place with Florida in population and is a democrat controlled state.
U.S. Republican Representative Matt Gaetz is under investigation by the democrat controlled House Ethics Committee. The war between the two mass political movements has reached levels of destruction never before seen in the U.S. in the 20th. Century. The moves against Mr. Gaetz are certain to cause the Trump supporters to remind Americans of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who befriended a great many democrat politicians. It is alleged that former President Bill Clinton flew 58 times on Epstein’s airplane, known as the Lolita Express.
The 2021 Revolution is also a political revolution with the Clinton led supporters intent on destroying the working-middle class in the U.S. as well as many law enforcement agencies. The Trump supporters are intent on winning a majority of seats in the U.S. House in 2022. The Clinton supporters are equally intent on keeping the democrat majority in the U.S. House. Also, election laws to insure fair and just elections for Americans differ greatly between the two opposing movements.
Crime has increased in all areas and regions in the U.S. after the defund the police movement was supported by the democrat party. Today the U.S. is not the country that I was born into and grew up in.
