Industrial Democracy

...but people buy it anyway
It's an old idea that's back in fashion and with the rise of Bernie a true champion of Industrial Democracy is leading the vanguard of desperate "revolutionaries" to institute real change in Americas governing ideals. The numbers from New Hampshire are in and the Independent from Vermont is berning down the house of Clinton like some 1960's SDS goofball with a Molotov cocktail. Sane Democrats who actually own some piece of the American dream must be freaking out and initiating Plan B right now - can they keep putting it off for another primary and then another? At some point having Biden or Kerry swoop in to save the day is going to look like what it is - a desperate, last gasp effort to stop the Socialist fairy tale and save their general election prospects and the country. In all honesty, it might already be too late for the Democrats to save themselves from having their parties nomination stolen by a man who holds that party in such disdain that he won't even call himself a Democrat.
Confronted with the choice, the American people would choose the policeman's truncheon over the Anarchist's bomb.

There's nothing new or revolutionary about Bernie Sanders and the fact that he gets a comparatively open playing field from the press and his political opponents is indicative of a class immersed in Industrial Democracy for so long that they've lost the ability to even see what it is. What it is IS:
Industrial Democracy is what we've got NOW and Bernie wants to turn it up to 11. Why people buy into the illusion that free college and free health care and free anything will improve their lot is a mystery - make it all free and you're still not going to have Scandinavia on the Potomac. Bernie, on the other hand, will be living the kingly life while restructuring the game board (for your own good, and the good of others) and reading you the new rules. In the Government Industry (otherwise known as Public Sector) the Federal Government is the seat of true power and Bernie is leading a peasant revolt to depose the queen. These "peasants", rich and educated though they might be, are marching and singing and voting as if they're livelihoods depended on it (and for many it does) - but that's how important it is when you live in an Industrial Democracy.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
