This morning, 12/6/2017, as I surveyed my multiple, diverse info about our confusing reality, some syntheses further clarified. This led to a deep sense of Critical Concern (not yet emotional fear, but conceptual alertness). None of these are new insights, but the evidence builds – not only about what might be happening (under our noses) and the blindspots epidemic in those who should see and act.
I add urls at the end.
Our STORY in a Nutshell
A global/national COUP is rapidly approaching the tipping point, in the USA.
Humankind is not as our best minds believe it to be.
Human power systems are surfing on the dynamics of Positive-Chaos & Negative-Disorder, competing for control within their private realities (epistemes and paradigms).
Many little actions of oppression are weaving a framework for a coup, while we (“the opposition”) only talk (in our bubbles) about actions we may not be permitted to take.
Progressives, liberals, and those critical of surface happenings are yet caught in outmoded worldviews (epistemes) that block them from adequate interpretation of “the facts”. What is happening, in the USA, is not within our “Constitutional System” nor within our “Traditional Democratic Practices”. This is no longer defective democracy, where we “hope” to “turn the tide” in the next elections, but a rapidly emerging Slow Coup.
The Slow Coup has four primary features:
1) Attention diversion in all media by a handled madman, Donald Trump. All reported actions are attributed to The Donald, even when many openly point to his lack of “sanity”. He is not in charge.
2) Meanwhile, many actions are being taken to limit freedom of opposition – masked by the attention to Trump antics. Those actions that are reported are not the most insidious, because the reporters are locked-into their “hope” of “turning it around”.
3) The “opposition” (to the coup) dialog among themselves in their bubbles, planning actions for which there no long exist judges or courts to consider their plans. Force and power rule, and contemporary structures are rigged against them.
4) What is happening doesn’t fit into any of our models. It involves sophisticated conspiracies at different levels by relatively independent cabals (with financial and geek power) & crude conspiracies – but working in unstable, highly tumultuous populations and social systems (countervailing bottom-up processes, including tech innovations). Although no single “force” is in control, there are definite trends, that are quite dangerous.
An explicit push for coup finalization may be coming very soon. The right media speak openly of the end of investigation into Trump, etc. The tools are assembled to shut down dissent. All is needed is a tragic, false-flag incident to consolidate the coup.
All that Trump and his handlers (cabal) designate as FAKE NEWS (RT, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, BBC, etc.) will be removed from the semfield accessible by Americans. This will include Internet news, except by highly talented geeks.
The reactions and outcomes are uncertain – the coup planners are far from omnipotent. Rwanda-style mutual genocide is possible, as is a passive submission to oppression. On-the-other-hand, blue state governments/economies may successfully resist and challenge the national coup – and how this conflict will emerge is highly uncertain. Also uncertain is, who comprise the top cabals? Might a BRICS-type cabal be Trump’s handler, countering USA-EU hegonomy? Or, might “BRICS” be a truly global financial cabal planning a re-organization of all (national) state systems – including shutting down the excessive power of the USA (global fascism). Are Trump and the GOP being manipulated, with the intention of the destruction of US power. Might this also be why US exceptionalism is now negative on many indicators; by the intentional, long-term weakening of US infrastructure. Example: Child Poverty Rate.
Another variation, LOC – Legal Organized Crime. The “mafia episteme” migrates to the highest societal levels, where the whole of humankind is an environment to exploit and not a lager aspect of their societal orgs.
Also, how do the financial/corporate cabals that profit from war and the preparation-for-war compete with the financial/corporate cabals who would benefit by the elimination of this global Military/Industrial/Media Complex?
These are not definite predictions; none is possible. This is a warning of one possible future, not easily recognized amidst conflicting propaganda and fake news (from all sides).
What to do?
1) Hide and organize for later. Will our online texts attract attention, or will we simply be shut off?
2) Try to make this warning highly visible, IMMEDIATELY. How?
3) Learn/Organize (OLLO) resistor and protestor populations for “higher action”.
