“-a sense of disbelief, that this just can’t happen here.”

“-there are 21 million Americans who are part of a mass political movement…that is conspiracy minded and supports the use of violence for political ends. We have not been in that place in this country…very likely since about a hundred years ago, which was the rise of the 2nd Klu Klux Klan in the 1920’s.”

“-when you poll the 21 million people who believe in political violence to restore president Trump to the White House…they agree overwhelmingly with the proposition that the rights of people of color are exceeding those of whites; they believe in the great replacement.”

“-to have two thirds of all Republicans who have lost faith completely in our election system is a catastrophe for America…and we have not had that, arguably, ever. I make the point in the article that confederates, at the start of the civil war, did not deny that Abraham Lincoln had won the election; it was because he won the election they wanted to secede. We just haven’t had this kind of mass denial before and it’s very dangerous.”

The red states that certified electors for Biden have replaced or are replacing all those who did not act to overthrow the government for Trump. It is happening. Now.

And nobody is doing a thing about it. The result of the, at this point, almost inevitable overthrow of the government will be civil war…it is so obvious and so completely unbelievable.

Civilization emerged from the industrial revolution with a new world order replacing the old; the classic definition of liberalism which meant that wealth and not aristocracy and the church determined who held power. Money became the god of this world. That Gilded Age led, in a confused fashion, to World War One. After that war came revolution in Russia and a power vacuum in which faith in absolute greed inevitably collapsed the fragile global economy. Authoritarians then stepped onto the stage so the money would continue to flow. And then… World War Two.

In the span of a single human lifetime, since the end of that last global conflict, the population of planet Earth has doubled and almost doubled again. If we are to avoid a dark age and a reduction in the size of the human race beyond our worst nightmares, we had better do something to stop the rising tide of anarchy. Now.

There is a simplified version of the story of the New Deal and it goes like this:

The trade unions and communists went to FDR and told him straight out that if he did not do something then what happened in Russia was going to happen in America. FDR then went to his rich friends and told them straight out to pay a 90 percent tax rate to fund social safety nets or they would be hanging from lamp posts.

If something similar does not happen soon…

Luke 12:47-49

King James Version

47 And that servant, who knew his lord’s will and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

48 But he that knew not and committed things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required; and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

49 “I am come to send fire on the earth, and what will I, if it be already kindled?
