Destroying the World in Order to Build it Back Up – No Thank You.

Steve Bannon, Trump’s political strategist, has been heard to say that he wants to destroy the world, watch it burn, whatever it takes to remove the social, economic, political, and legal infrastructure that we now have, so that the slate will be cleared for building it anew.

Here is the quote:

“I’m a Leninist,” Bannon proudly proclaimed.

 Shocked, [the reporter] asked him what he meant.

 “Lenin,” he answered, “wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.”

Bannon was employing Lenin’s strategy for Tea Party populist goals. He included in that group the Republican and Democratic Parties, as well as the traditional conservative press.

Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s Closest Adviser, Just Wants to See the World Burn

I’ve written that story, and it isn’t pretty. It’s called Nae-Née. In it, you can watch as the Farmers – banksters, hedge fundsters, corporatists – guys like Trump and his picks for Cabinet posts – stealthily take everything for themselves, everyone else be damned.


It’s fine when it’s a story that makes you think, but not when it’s real. (Dystopian fiction v. dystopian nonfiction!)

Who benefits from all that destruction?

It certainly won’t be the vast majority of those who voted for Bannon’s choice of pyromaniac, Donald J. Trump.


Voters’ remorse is already setting in.

May it set in some more – and more, and more, and more.

Wake up, people.

And hurry up, before your Twitter feeds gets slowed down too much to be useful, or cut off altogether.

Don’t expect any petitions or complaints to Trump’s so-called government to be accepted, let alone read or considered. He doesn’t care, and neither does his Goebbels-reincarnate, Steve Bannon.

Blocking all immigrants until they figure out what they will do for the foreseeable future, vetted through all of the proper channels before being cleared to enter the United States, is unreasonable.

The vetting process is stringent and the immigrants have to take out loans to pay for their plane tickets and whatever else they need.

Obama was never going to just let them all in and overwhelm our social welfare resources.

We aren’t within rowing distance of Syria, after all, so we’re not going to be inundated like Europe is.

Building a wall will choke off ecosystems and further push endangered species toward extinction.

And what about airplanes and tunnels?!

The migrants from Central and South America will still get through.

This is not well thought out.

What our country should do is:

  • Not offend foreign nations that we trade with and pursue scientific endeavors with.
  • Check the U.S. Constitution, case law, existing statutes, and regulations, and consult with attorneys BEFORE taking any action to make sure that it is legal.
  • Keep abortion legal and convenient, and keep birth control conveniently accessible and affordable so that there won’t be yet more people straining and competing for the finite resources that the Earth has available.

But no, Bannon would much rather direct Trump’s pen and destroy everything.

There’s no logic to blocking all reproductive control in favor of religiousness while keeping all foreign talent out.

Just look at our record for Nobel Prize winners. Out of 350 winners, 100 of them have been immigrants. Why stop that?! That would be idiocy.

America’s Nobel success is the story of immigrants

As I said, the Farmers are running the nation, they are clueless, ignorant, and selfish, they don’t think long-term, and they don’t care about the implications or effects of their actions.

The Farmers are not here to make the world better than it was when they found it.

They are out solely for themselves, and they don’t care how miserable they make everyone around them.

Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer have been saying that if the vast majority of us aren’t happy, we can just shut up about it.

Well, we have no intention of shutting up.

We fully intend to spoil their quiet enjoyment of absolutist, fascist, totalitarian power.

The fools who voted for this idiocy are rapidly and collectively getting a galloping case of voter’s remorse, and they won’t put up and shut up, either.

Populism is the new, updated term for fascism.

We’re all onto the fact that the term “alternative facts” is just another way of saying “lies”.

Even if everyone hasn’t yet read George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, it has been discussed enough that it’s common knowledge.

Who knows…the liberals and the populists may soon find some common ground after all.

Steve Bannon, political strategist, is now on the National Security Council.

Joseph Goebbels, Adolph Hitler’s Reich Minister of Propaganda, had a similar position.

If you aren’t alarmed by this similarity, you’re either asleep or pure evil.

The insurrection continued today when acting Attorney General Sally Q. Yates refused to assist with the Farming of immigrants.

It’s not over, and it won’t be until all of the Pumpkingropenfuhrer’s efforts are crushed, and his evil Goebbels doppelganger is removed.

Bannon may want to be one of the Farmers who get to enjoy the spoils of the destruction he hopes to wreak, but look at what happened to Goebbels: the day after Hitler killed himself, he and his poisoned their six children, and then drank poison and killed themselves.

The other Farmers – er, Nazis – were deprived of the spoils they had snatched from the victims of the resource war that they had waged.

They were hanged, imprisoned, disgraced, impoverished, and otherwise made as miserable as it was possible to make them.

That was how World War II turned out.

Why should World War III, which Bannon is gunning for, turn out any different for its instigators and aggressors?
