Discussion of the recent unfolding of history.

### It's a wonderful time period in the United States 2020

With the United States on the verge of economic collapse entering the 2020 national political elections I just thought it would be nice to pause and illustrate where we're at presently. Let's just start from the beginning.

The United States is on the verge of economic collapse and we have a trade war against the rest of the world. Amongst the backdrop of the world powerful nations are making military economic alliances with and against each other which should make things interesting for the next world war. Besides the United States being on the verge of economic collapse it's looking just about the same for a variety of nations around the world.

As we enter the 2020 national political elections we have the moderate neo-liberals and neo-conservatives talking about civil war if either side wins politically where amongst all of that you have outside groups not represented within the political establishment like communists, anarchists, and fascists just waiting for the nation to go to total shit in order to achieve their own insurrectionary social political agendas. Those three outside political groups despise each other but more so have no love for the neo-liberals or neo-conservatives either.

Just imagine a civil war in the United States where it is a shootout between neo-liberals, neo-conservatives, communists, anarchists, and fascists.

What an awesome wonderful time period to be alive, I'm certainly looking forward to the future.

Fun as your attitude is, how can you be a national socialist and think this is a great time to be alive? If you managed to, with like-minded people, move the US to a national socialist state it would be nothing like this. And certainly nothing at all like a civil war. If you like the current situation and civil war you are more of a nihilist anarchist. Or a would-be ronin or something.

Probably in the next two years, in fact probably in about 2-3 years. It will be sludgy rather than sudden, like last time. But, the United States, thanks to President Trump, will be well ahead of the curve. California may meet some serious corrections, if not collapses, as they got rich precisely on the most vulnerable sectors. Possibly because they somewhat see this, they are seeking refuge in China which will let its people starve before it lets something like a Google fail. China will probably hurt most, but certainly not fare worst. They are too shrewd, economic reality will not ever be overshadowed by ideology with them. They understand ideology properly: as a weapon.

If you like the current situation and civil war you are more of a nihilist anarchist. Or a would-be ronin or something. In my opinion once this nation collapses a fracturing will occur territorially where multiple nations in the once former United States will be created racially, culturally, politically, socially, economically, and ideologically. The civil war will consist of which competing racial-social-political groups acquire what territory and where in the former United States when the new territorial maps are being drawn out afterwards once such a civil war reaches its final conclusion. Yes, these future prospects are funny, predictable, and exciting. It's like a dream coming true for me. Reintegration at this point I don't see happening at all, the future of the United States will be like the former Yugoslavia where disintegration will be prominent everywhere.

a good rule of them is that when cowards try to do something,

You Marxist-lite democrats or full blow communists are in store for such a huge rude awakening.

Also, every successful revolution is started by a minority of people.

Political moderates are going to be devoured in this current time period, this is the era of political extremism or radicalism and I love it.

Z: Also, every successful revolution is started by a minority of people.

K: if you actually have read history, you would know that the minority of people
you refer to are really either middle class or Aristocrats...every single major
rebellion or revolution has been lead by someone/somebodies from the middle
or wealthy class... see the French Revolution or the Russian Revolution or
even see the minor revolution in the U.S during the 1930's which was lead by an aristocrat
named.. Franklin D. Roosevelt....

that is why the current situation hasn't resolved itself... we don't have the leaders
from the upper or middle class who have stepped up and begun the revolution....

a bill gates or a Mark Cuban would actually give you some idea of what
the revolution is waiting for....

Z: Political moderates are going to be devoured in this current time period, this is the era of political extremism or radicalism and I love it. [/quote]

K: there is no historical backing for you statement.... the moderates may go underground, but
they will survive and be the leaders of the next generation....that is what history has shown us...

if you understand that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, then
you will have a far better understanding of both history and politics, then dozens
of history or political classes you might take in school.....

see this idea from the French revolution, the Thermidorian reaction... that is far more

So, there has never been a working class or peasant revolution ever in history? I think you're wrong on that but I will agree a majority is devised by middle and upper classes. [Usually when they want somebody else's power for themselves.]

An anarchist? You're in worse shape than the communists then.

Better hope the moderates can go into hiding a few hundred years because that's what we're looking at concerning the new global dark ages. [It will only stop being the dark ages when one contender comes out of the chaos as the dominant ideology that fixes things. Could be an extremely long time before that happens.]

K: actually, I am not a communist.. given a choice, I would prefer anarchism...

Z: Also, every successful revolution is started by a minority of people.

K: if you actually have read history, you would know that the minority of people
you refer to are really either middle class or Aristocrats...every single major
rebellion or revolution has been lead by someone/somebodies from the middle
or wealthy class... see the French Revolution or the Russian Revolution or
even see the minor revolution in the U.S during the 1930's which was lead by an aristocrat
named.. Franklin D. Roosevelt....

that is why the current situation hasn't resolved itself... we don't have the leaders
from the upper or middle class who have stepped up and begun the revolution....

a bill gates or a Mark Cuban would actually give you some idea of what
the revolution is waiting for....

Z: Political moderates are going to be devoured in this current time period, this is the era of political extremism or radicalism and I love it.

K: there is no historical backing for you statement.... the moderates may go underground, but
they will survive and be the leaders of the next generation....that is what history has shown us...

if you understand that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, then
you will have a far better understanding of both history and politics, then dozens
of history or political classes you might take in school.....

see this idea from the French revolution, the Thermidorian reaction... that is far more
likely then any moderate bloodbath...

Z: So, there has never been a working class or peasant revolution ever in history? I think you're wrong on that but I will agree a majority is devised by middle and upper classes. [Usually when they want somebody else's power for themselves.]

K: feel free to name a working class or peasant revolution that wasn't led by
someone from the middle or upper class....

Z: An anarchist? You're in worse shape than the communists then.

K: as noted, I said prefer anarchism, but there are aspects of communism I like
and parts I dislike... as I noted in another thread this morning, I would like to
move communism to become more "secular" and not so much an religion...

K: having studied history for over 40 years, it is rare that things ever turn so bleak
as to exist for a "few hundred years"....the historical period known as the "Enlightenment"
which still drives much of what is happening today, lasted less then 80 years and the
Renaissance lasted, depending on the country, lasted roughly 300 years.. in theory,
in practice, it really lasted maybe 200 years at most....

read history and see that history is driven by cycles... what is up today is down tomorrow
and what is down is up...liberalism is followed by conservatism and then liberalism comes
back... cycles of history is really the best way to understand history...

wait long enough and everything will return... this is true socially and this
is true politically....the true course of history is cycles within cycles...

one can see after a long time of conservativism in America, we can see
the rise of liberalism.. and after a long time of liberalism, we will see
the rise of conservatism once again...that is how it works...…cycles....

I suspect, don't know, but suspect, that the coming cycle of liberalism will
last a couple of decades, then conservatism will come back.....so with luck,
I will be dead when conservatism makes its return.....
