“I tell you, freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in – and the West in general – into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”-Osama Bin Laden (October 2001), as reported by CNN

America has been a rogue-fascist state since at least November 22nd, 1963, when JFK was assassinated by covert U.S. agencies (coup detat):

OPPOSE FASCISM OF THE RIGHT AND THE LEFT

AUGUST 21, 2017 | THE RON PAUL INSTITUTE | RONPAULINSTITUTE.ORG

Following the recent clashes between the alt-right and the group antifa, some libertarians have debated which group they should support. The answer is simple: neither. The alt-right and its leftist opponents are two sides of the same authoritarian coin.

The alt-right elevates racial identity over individual identity. The obsession with race leads them to support massive government interference in the economy in order to benefit members of the favored race. They also favor massive welfare and entitlement spending, as long as it functions as a racial spoils system. Some prominent alt-right leaders even support abortion as a way of limiting the minority population. No one who sincerely supports individual liberty, property rights, or the right to life can have any sympathy for this type of racial collectivism.

Antifa, like all Marxists, elevates class identity over individual identity. Antifa supporters believe government must run the economy because otherwise workers will be exploited by greedy capitalists. This faith in central planning ignores economic reality, as well as the reality that in a free market employers and workers voluntarily work together for their mutual benefit. It is only when government intervenes in the economy that crony capitalists have the opportunity to exploit workers, consumers, and taxpayers. Sadly, many on the left confuse the results of the “mixed economy” with free markets.

Ironically, the failure of the Keynesian model of economic authoritarianism, promoted by establishment economists like Paul Krugman, is responsible for the rise of the alt-right and antifa. Despite a recent (and likely short-lived) upturn in some sectors of the economy, many Americans continue to struggle with unemployment and a Federal Reserve-caused eroding standard of living. History shows that economic hardship causes many to follow demagogues offering easy solutions and convenient scapegoats.

Left-wing demagogues scapegoat businesses and the “one percent,” ignoring the distinction between those who made their fortunes serving consumers and those who enriched themselves by manipulating the political process. Right-wing demagogues scapegoat immigrants and minorities, ignoring how these groups suffer under the current system and how they are disproportionally impacted by policies like the war on drugs and police militarization.

As the Keynesian-Krugman empire of big government and fiat currency collapses, more people will be attracted to authoritarianism, leading to an increase in violence. The only way to ensure the current system is not replaced with something even worse is for those of us who know the truth to work harder to spread the ideas of liberty.
While we should be willing to form coalitions with individuals of good will across the political spectrum, we must never align with anyone promoting violence as a solution to social and economic problems. We must also oppose any attempts to use the violence committed by extremists as a justification for expanding the police state or infringing on free speech. Laws against hate speech set a dangerous precedent for censorship of speech unpopular with the ruling elite and the deep state.

  1. “Antifa, like all Marxists, elevates class identity over individual identity”

    Well, not exactly “like all Marxists.”

    Only a libertarian reading of Marx’s analysis of capitalist society would come to that interpretation.

    In fact, Marx (and Marxists who have both actually read Marx and, it needs to be said, understand him know that he) was all about the individual and his or her liberty or freedom.

    The insistence on class does not derive from a Marxist preference of “class identity over individual identity,” but from the “fact” that capitalist society is at its core a — what’s the expression I’m looking for? Oh, yeah — “. . . that capitalist society is a class society.

    Since Marx was aiming for the creation of a “classless society,” it is difficult to understand how anyone could attribute to him the view that he, and not capitalism itself, is the one who elevates class identity over the individual.

    Just one little thing I had to get off my chest, Dave. If there is one thing that annoys me about American scholars like Dr. Paul, it is when they speak authoritatively about something which their assertions in and of themselves demonstrate them to be actually clueless about. Still, I do like Dr. Paul. Just not when he makes this kind of misattribution.

  2. No problem, Norm. I hear you!

    As I hope you know, I didn’t post this to slam Marx. Truthfully, I have tossed out so many articles that made the point I was trying to make at the moment, but then went off on an ism vs ism routine.

    I hold to no ism, including anarchism, yes, I gave up on that, too!. But I get sick of the slamming of Marx, socialism and communism by red-white-and-blue assholes who still worship capitalism. This post by Paul, expressed what I have been attempting to express in my posts recently, and that is, these left and right idiots are being manipulated by the powers that be.

    Truthfully, Norm, I see very little hope for humanity. I still blog just to get rid of my frustration and rage.

    Thanks for your comments, Norm!

    Yup. Me, too. It’s really fucked up and I also don’t see how “we” will ever get past the insanity of it all. Moral outrage is all that drives me. If I can’t change anything, I can at least damn it. And so I do.

  4. I’m glad I’m not alone, Norm!

    Like you, I still am concerned for the people who are being effected most by this empire from hell, but I have no answers other than to blog everything that damns this nightmare all to hell and back!
