Apologies. When I tried to find the following joke, I failed and made a poor attempt at retelling it. The intrepid Maggie found it for me and credit goes to Critical Thinker, Roger, who forwarded the joke. The original joke came from David Stevenson to whom I owe an even bigger apology for bastardising the original. So here it is, as told by David:
This post is prompted, in part, by an article on Fascism that Critical Thinker Pennie sent me last Friday asking what I thought. To which I replied (edited to clarify)…
I’m not in the right “place” to give this detailed attention but early 20th century politics were characterised by the Hegelian dialectic: create a problem (Socialism, spread from the Bolshevik revolution)… break down national culture with creeping depravity and loss of moral “sense” – Weimar Republic; foster the reaction (Fascism) to reclaim the vital foundations for a coherent society; to resolve these opposing forces, the solution (war) ensues which was planned all along; the story is a lot more involved and multi-layered but clearly that was the plan – a second bite at destroying national culture and generations of European youth, sapping the vitality of the Polis; thus making them malleable. Enter the Common Market to introduce “social capitalism” (temporarily), followed by neo-liberalism and the European Union building block for one world government.
What we’re witnessing now is analogous to the situation in the pre-Bolshevik period in Russia where successive “revolutionary” governments became more radical until the Provisional government ushered in Lenin and his Ashkenazi cult to implement the grand plan.
Brexit and all the other divisions around the world are heralding the next phase in the war on us all: nascent civil war and martial law. Unless we understand the game, we’ll dance their tune to the abattoir.
