Noble But Useless
For the past few weeks former President Clinton has been making speeches and calling for a drastic change in the nation’s political environment. He says we need a depolarization by becoming a kinder gentler America. His grasp of the obvious has been enhanced since he left office. I agree with him completely, kind of, too bad that he is wasting his breath.
There will be no reformation of our political wars until the right-wing extremists who have hijacked our nation are forced out of power. They grabbed power by turning mean and vicious. They have held it by becoming meaner and more vicious. Anti-democratic extremists like Karl Rove and Lee Atwater are the new masters of the political universe. America will not regain her democratic principles waiting on a change of heart from men and women whose political manifesto consists of teachings taken straight from Machiavelli’s, The Prince; Orwell’s Inner Party’s’ tools of newspeak and doublethink, and countless writings of Lenin. Power is their god of choice. Democracy for them was neither a forethought nor an afterthought.
To think they will change the tactics of lying, duplicity, and dirty tricks they started during the Nixon regime is to be delusional. They have defined and refined them for over thirty years. They have proven to be most successful and beneficial for the right-wing elite no matter how catastrophic to the rest of America. These usurpers of freedom will not relinquish the reigns of power. They will have to be pried from their cold politically dead fingers. We will not return to a more civil society until there is a regime change in Washington. Of course that in itself will be no guarantee but it is the only hope.
The politics of the right gave birth to our current turmoil. History has shown it is the politics of destruction. How ironic that the revolution of the reactionary right used the same tactics of Lenin and the extreme left. But then that would explain the fact that both upheavals gave rise to the repression and exploitation of the masses by the elite few.
