Social Matter - Hitlers Everywhere

The new Social Matter post is up. Go read it there. It is not just an evaluation of the new Hitler but of the system that needs to call him Hitler.

Assad is Hitler. Putin is Hitler. Trump is Hitler. Iran is led by multiple Hitlers. Climate change deniers are Hitler. Did you hear about the Burmese Hitler? This Burmese monk gets the double whammy of being called the Buddhist Bin Laden in the headline and then compared to Hitler later in the article. This article is a brilliant peek into the mind of our elite as they frame things the way they want. Like an ocean wave wearing down the rockiest sea shore, it is a repeated trick that affords control simply because of repetition. Wirathu, the little Buddhist monk, is no Hitler.

Read all about this far flung Hitler and the foolish media that cries wolf non-stop.

"This Hitler that you speak of so much," asks a new generation, "how much worse can he be than [sweeping arm gesture] this?

A good slam of the reporterette for the callow, downright stupid voice of the empire that she is. At some point we'll be in a position to just watch it all unravel all by itself.

Once you go full Godwin, there is nowhere left to go.

I think we're starting to see the irreversible decline of the New Left. We aren't going to see it all happen right away, it's going to be a 5-10 year process. The downside is that whatever replaces the New Left is likely going to be worse. Weimerica is going to seem like quaint times by 2030.

I guess the informality of the blog commenting medium makes it easy for people to play the amateur Nostradamus but I could just as well say the opposite: Weimerica is going to seem like a distant nightmare by 2030.

Either statement is unsubstantiated speculation.
