Many traditional Americans are sleepwalking into a conflict they are not mentally prepared to handle

Many traditional Americans are sleepwalking into a conflict they are not mentally prepared to handle. By Max Morton.

America is at a crossroads. We are facing the greatest threat to liberty the Republic has yet encountered — a ruling elite backed by the primary institutions of power in America: the media, academia, the permanent bureaucracy, and the defense-intelligence complex. These institutions are fully committed to a top-down rebellion of the elites determined to protect the wealth and power of the establishment. …

American society is now cleaved into two factions that are intrinsically at odds with one another.


On one hand, you have traditional Americans. They come in every race, creed, and religion. They believe in law and order, expect everyone to follow the rules, and mostly just want to be left alone.

Family-oriented, self-reliant, and armed, traditional Americans populate the working-class ranks of the military, law enforcement, and industry. Sadly, most are technically illiterate. They underestimate the threat from the surveillance state and Securitate. Many still believe the FBI only goes after bad guys, and they cannot grasp that the national security apparatus now views them as the enemy. They rightly bristle when slandered with “white supremacist” or “terrorist” labels.

Many are infected with white knight conspiracy theories that counsel remaining submissive. In general, they have nearly zero control of the nation’s money, media, government, academia, legal system, and surveillance state.


On the other hand is the ruling elite. They advocate a multi-tiered justice system and expect others to follow their rules, beliefs, and norms. They are politically savvy and disciplined. They view traditional Americans and their beliefs as an impediment to their wealth and utopian dreams, going so far as routinely to advocate extreme actions such as genocide, re-education, and the removal of the children of their political opposition.

They employ proxy forces, such as Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and journalists to bully ordinary Americans and weak-willed corporations. In order to intimidate and discredit their political opposition, they’ve weaponized the use of labels such as “white supremacist” and “terrorist” on their enemies. They are generally opposed to religion and personal firearm ownership, and they cannot allow you to be left alone.

They will attempt to nudge wrong-thinkers into accepting the ruling elite’s ideology. If that doesn’t work, they’ll force compliance via law enforcement, military, and the intelligence agencies they now command. They control most of the national wealth and all of the media, government, academia, legal authorities, and surveillance state.

The elite have rather tired of democracy, and have revolted:

Many traditional Americans are sleepwalking into a conflict they are not mentally prepared to handle. The ideals of blind justice and due process are now, for all intents and purposes, quaint relics, and relying on constitutional rights for protection is dangerously naïve.

Like it or not, we live in a police state, controlled by an increasingly authoritarian regime with near-total electronic surveillance. The national security apparatus views conservatives and free-thinkers as domestic terrorists, and there are now more military deployed in our nation’s capital than in war zones overseas. If America were any other country, it would be considered a non-permissive environment — not a free country.

The pundit class recommends midterm elections and unifying the GOP as remedies, but they ignore the real elephant in the room — representative government is not representing us. While conservative and independent voices are censored and banned from the community square, their elected representatives cower behind their desks and make sweetheart deals with the new regime.

We are facing a new post-justice, post-truth society. We won’t be able to debate our way out of it, vote our way out of it, or tweet our way out of it. No one is coming to save us. If traditional America wants to be free, it will have to stop living in the past, get up off the couch, and take action. …

Running out of time:

Traditional Americans are now in a race for time. The current regime in Washington is moving fast to establish new legal authorities … These actions would give the national security apparatus dangerously expanded powers and capabilities to use against U.S. citizens conducting constitutionally protected activities.

Attempting to organize after these authorities and capabilities have been established would be the equivalent of trying to start a political movement from scratch in East Germany at the height of the Cold War.

One cannot get small enough or anonymous enough to avoid the tyranny and oppression associated with authoritarian regimes. Do not delay. Always keep in mind the adage no one is coming to save you.

Sad, but only now becoming obvious to most of us.

Vox Populi:

The recent election demonstrated, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that democracy is dead and there is no political exit. … The voting machines have been compromised, ergo no one’s votes matter in the slightest.

Most of the non-left already get that last part.
