re: The Federal Reserve is not a federal agency.

quote:

We get Marxist Socialism from Obama's type and we get National Socialism from Bush's type.


Socialism defined:
quote:

A political and economic theory of that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated a central government.


Corporatism defined:
quote:

The control of a state or organization by large interest groups.


IMO the word socialism gets thrown around a bit too loosely. In both cases, Obama and the neo-cons, their actions fit corporatism muuuuuuch closer than socialism.

In Obama's case the corporations or large interest groups that he is aligned with are the auto industry (GM), big banking, unions, environmentalist, health insurance and lawyers.

In the neo-cons case the corporation or large interest groups they are aligned with are defense contractors, big oil, big banking (also), big ag, and health insurance.

I'm sure there are more corporations and institutions that these politicians are aligned with but that's all I can think of off the top of my head at the moment.

The point is, the way I see it is we live in a corporatist society where a symbiotic relationship between the corporations/institutions and politicians exist. Sure there are socialist and capitalistic tendencies but these tendencies ebb and flow within a corpratist framework.

The corpratist framework exist because the politicians gain MONEY and thus power and in return the corporations gain competitive protections (via regulatory barriers), monetary advantages (via tax loopholes, grants, loans, stimulus, etc.), inside information and many other favors I can't think of at the moment.

The bottom line is our politicians practice corporatism on both sides of the aisle despite their socialistic or capitalistic ideologies.

Did no one else take notice that one of his political influences was the drummer from The Band?

I ain't an expert on national socialism but I guess the idea is that Neocons are for a powerful government and war.


Say what you will about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude. At least THAT'S an ethos.

I was too blinded by the name Che Guevara on that list to see anything else.

I never labored under that illusion. His first post I read on this board was the first indication of his banality.

Simpletons, all of you. Now excuse me, I have to get back to looking for the hole in the south pole that leads to the men who live underground...the Nazis were looking for them during the war and the threat of them, and their power, falling into the wrong hands is still very real!

I just assume everyone is a genius until they prove otherwise.

Our own government has pursued equally ridiculous notions.

There are two Huxleys(father and son) that could have influenced him, and both were kind of whacked in the cabeza.

That's scary since Hitler and the Nazis never really did such a thing. Anything of the sort would have been Himmler's pet project, at best, and conspiracy theory garbage at worst.

In either case, Mo thought he was onto something there.
