Political Theory vs Facts on the Ground

This is another post Facebook censored….   was originally a  conversation between
Tim Flanagan   James Sean Phelan   I (Tim) had mentioned how the Libertarian party acted as a subset of the corporate-Republican party, both leaning towards nationalism.

I took political science 101 in 1969, but my political activism began in the early sixties.Image result for political theory


Adolf Hitler considered himself a Socialist, Capitalist, Fascist and Nazi… in various measures.  My father, a pacifist, joined the Army to help stop this madman.

Socialism and Capitalism are ancient, flawed theories which do not exist in the real world. Nor can these classroom theories precipitate liberation or revolution.

But right wing white-racism and exports of terror, munitions and wars about extraction, exploitation and extortion have become a creeping fascism: brutal, amoral, lethal and fatal.

“Adolf Hitler, whose National Socialist (Nazi) Party adapted fascism to Germany beginning in 1933, said:

‘The state should retain supervision and each property owner should consider himself appointed by the state.’ It is his duty not to use his property against the interests of others among his own people. This is the crucial matter. The Third Reich will always retain its right to control the owners of property.” 
(Barkai 1990, pp. 26–27)

Instead of retreating to this failed past, we can invent sustainable futures where everyday people endure, survive and prevail. The war parties have not been working. And we seem to have been drifting into corporate fascism.

We must shut down these wars and invest in peace, people and a healing planet.

The Green Party represents most Americans’ views on securing the peace, universalvotegreenbutton nonprofit health care, rebuilding infrastructure, reforming banks, creating a healthy environment, campaign finance reform, restrictions of corporate power, elimination of genetically modified foods, erasure of student debt, restoring functioning schools, providing four years of college and investments in a healing
planet.

vote for peace

We are part of a global movement for

peace, freedom and justice…

Peace activism became more prolific in the United States and around the globe between 1945 and today. Everyday people oppose arbitrary American aggression abroad while infrastructure is falling apart at home.

A surrender to corporate elites has bankrupted the nation, lowered wages and shipped critical jobs overseas.  We can do better.
