Today’s Rioters are the Evil Spawn of the Rioters from the 1960’s


The Typical American city in the Summer of 2020, WHY?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Starting in the mid 60’s and running though most of the 70’s a large contingent of the babies born between 1944 and 1964 known as the “me generation” or the “boomer generation” started to rebel against the existing political system and society in general.  The trigger for the rebellion was the Vietnam war and the draft of young men to be sent to war. However,  it quickly spread to encompass many other issues like race, gender and sexuality, leading to the culture wars in the 80’s. It was a very turbulent time as society was totally changed by the boomers. If you care to read about it I recommend the book The Fourth Turning An American Prophecy  by Strauss and Howe. The amassing thing about this book is that they predicted what we are going though right now back in 1997.

Back then 1970’s

That was the background that we grew up in and most of us turned out just fine; however there was another group of mostly rich kids that turned out to be very bad. Their parents were the first of the Progressives who believed in the principles of Marxism; not so much in the open as the cloaked themselves in terms like socialism. and social justice and well today we have BLM and Antifa to name just a few, which are direct extensions of the movements in the late 60’s and early 70’s. To many today, who were not alive back then, they wonder where these movements came from.

Today 2020

The answer is found in their writing and more specifically in a book/pamphlet they published on May 9, 1974.  The authors are: Bernadine Dohrn, Billy Ayers (Strong Connection to Obama), Jeff Jones and Celia Sojourn. These were hard core Communist  radicals following the teaching of Saul D. Alinsky in his Book Rules for Radicals in which he taught how to make social change meaning a way to get to Marxism. This group and others goal was to fundamentally change America into a Communist country. If you read that book you will have no doubt about their wanting a Marxism system in the Unite Sates.

The book they published in 1974 will give them today what they desired when they first published Prairie Fire, The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Americanism. Rather than write about it here just download it and read it yourself. The copy I have is a copy of the pages in that book and so some of the quality is poor but it is readable. In private they discussed the cost to make the change they wanted and it was that 25% of the US population would need to die. Before you dismiss  that remember that both the Russian and Chinese conversion to Marxism cost each of those countries a much high percentage of their population. Click on the words Prairie Fire blow and you can download a copy.

The link below, to a short U Tube video, was recorded in 1969 five years before Prairie Fire and describes much of what will be published five years later.

The movement today is a combination of Marxism and Environmentalism and Globalism and is a very dangerous combination, the code words for it are The Great Rest also known as the New Future and a New Green Deal. There are other posts on my blog that explain what this is.

Was Genoa the Best form of Government?


Genoa 1481

COMMENT: Dear Martin,

Thank you for your work.
It is not anymore about the economy but about surviving through the mayhem that is on the horizon.
Thank you for doing your part in sharing what you know, for being bold and for
not bending.
I was taught to go after ” independent thinking” and I have followed you for years because of that even though we have different political views.
I appreciate and listen to you because you are an independent thinker.

Send you a hug
Dr. FB from, Spain.

REPLY: Thank you. I believe you must question what is happening and you should NEVER presume the direction or outcome. Some people do not understand my position politically. I am neither Democrat nor Republican. There are aspects I agree and disagree with both. I understand the thinking of what went into the construction of the U.S. Constitution and the mistake the Founding Fathers made — they failed to consider human nature.

Much of the structure was based upon their misunderstanding of the Roman Republican era v Roman Imperial era. They presumed that monarchy was bad and ASSUMED that a Republic was better. They wrongly took the fake news of the day put out by Cicero, painting Julius Caesar as evil, when it was the Optimates led by Cato who were corrupt. Their misunderstanding of history and the true events of the time led even to the naming of the Cato Institute as if he really stood for the people.

The best form of government I have ever encountered was that of the Italian city of Genoa from which Christopher Columbus came. The city was ruled by a Doge (president), who was a member of one of the richest families. This position rotated among the families, but its duration was that of the old Roman Dictator who would be appointed for one year. BECAUSE the position rotated, no Doge would ever impose a draconian law since he and his family would be subjected to it the next year. There was no class warfare because they ran Genoa like a corporation, competing against Florence and Venice, and thus EVERYONE benefited.

This is also why I tend to trust Trump more than any other career politician of either party because he will return to the private sector. A career politician is simply taken care of for life and has nothing to return to. We are the lower class scum to be exploited and disrespected.

 

My bottom-line political philosophy is that the “We the People” should be in charge directly — not career politicians, EVER!. You have your bureaucrats who run the government who are accountable to the people directly. I do not support people like Soros or Bill Gates using their money to take over huge swaths of government. The office of Inspector General is only a symbolic gesture to the old Roman Tribunus plebis, tribune of the people, who could bring charges against any government official. That power should be restored. I do not support “Republics” nor career politicians that can be bought and paid for.

Reflections on ‘Sapiens’ & ‘The Strange Death of Europe’


SUBSCRIBE
I have just re-read יובל נח הררי Yuval Noah Harari​’s bestselling book ‘Sapiens’ and finished reading Douglas Murray’s (from the The Henry Jackson Society​) new, excellent and already bestselling book ‘The Strange Death of Europe’. Both have something very important to say about the state of our world. Here are a few thoughts of my own about the books and the work that needs to be done to protect our society.

Vespasian: “I Think I’m Becoming a God”


QUESTION: Greetings Mr. Armstrong,

Do we know if Vespasian meant his last words as ironic or literally? It seems that a man of his history meant it ironically.

That he was mocking the Roman idea of the emperors that they would become a god after their death.

Thanks,

A

ANSWER: Vespasian was known for his jesting. I think when his mortality was slipping away, he knew he was no god for he lacked such power. The Roman historian Suetonius reported that Vespasian said, “Vae, puto deus fio” which can be translated to “I think I’m becoming a god.”

I would say that his last words were one of question about the afterlife. Roman emperors were often deified upon death. For a senate to clear someone a god seems to lack any power to make such a rule in the afterlife. There were no miracles to be attributed to a person to declare that they are a saint. So one would think he was perhaps mocking the tradition rather than accepting he was becoming a god.

The Romans believed that death was defined as the separation of body and soul. They certainly did believe in an afterlife. They also believed that the deceased person could only find peace when the physical body was buried or cremated in a proper manner and all ceremonies were conducted appropriately. Otherwise, the soul would haunt the family if they disrespected them in this manner.

It was a tradition for the Romans to put a coin under the deceased family member’s tongue so they can pay Charon to cross the river Styx. In this manner, they would journey to the afterlife and not haunt the family.
