Very Serious People

To this day, the average Very Serious Person would still rather give a grizzly bear a tongue bath than admit that the Right has ever been right about anything, especially at the cost of admitting that they themselves -- these highly-paid professional havers of opinions -- had not only been completely wrong about the one specific subject area for which they were being paid for their alleged special expertise, but had also made it a point of pride to shit all over those on the Right who had actually been right about the Left all along.

But hey, this was always going to be a tough war that was never going to bring us either money or fame, right? That's not the immediate problem.

The immediate problem is that far too many Very Serious People people who should absolutely know better by now -- people in the media and in elected office -- still cling desperately to the fiction that there are a non-trivial number of "good conservatives" out there somewhere just waiting to be persuaded they are wrong and to (as one wag put it a thousand years ago) grow opposable thumbs and climb down out of the Stupid Tree.

There aren't. But I believe that this continued irrational faith in an obvious fiction is, in part, because the idea of fully facing the ugly truth -- that we are in a for-real war to save our democracy from being destroyed by our own family members, colleagues and neighbors -- and then facing moral and civic obligations that truth imposes scares the living shit out of them.

Packaging an Unattractive Jew-Hating Homophobic Racial Bigot Proves Difficult


Joy Reid has a lot of problems. Being ugly is just one of them. The gay-bashing homophobe and proven liar, is facing a dramatic rating collapse.  On top of being anti-Semitic and a 9/11 conspiracy theorist, she’s almost ridiculously unappealing.  Ricky Maddow might also be a liar and conspiracy theorist, but she at least has a sense of humor, charisma, and a personality that can shift into a gear other than “smug.”

Nothing can paper over the fact that Reid has no charisma, isn’t terribly bright, is a painfully predictable ideologue, vindictive, and an intolerant bigot. Leftists were willing to put up with anyone to get their fix of Trump Hate, but now that DJT is gone, it’s just Reid and her endless crazy rantings and parade of anti-white guest babbling about mythical systemic racism.

Reid’s struggling program had its worst turnout among the crucial news demo of adults age 25-54, averaging only 149,000 viewers in the category that helps keep the lights on. “The ReidOut” finished the week as the No. 29 program in cable news among demo viewers, finishing behind 15 different Fox News offerings, five different MSNBC shows, and even eight programs from rival liberal network CNN.

The Fire Marshalls of Free Speech

Mathematician & Economist Eric Weinstein (brother of Brett, and also a professor of a heterodox bent) railed against the current system of censorship we have.  Specifically, we are forbidden by the Church of Woke from departing from any of the Consecrated Lies, until a pope of the Church of Woke, like Jon Stewart, issues a papal decree giving us permission to speak the obvious truth.  He also notes that singer Arianna Grande took a selfie without a mask on and suddenly the left declared it was safe to go maskless.  Because she, being a celebrity, is also a pope in the Church of Woke.  But Weinstein doesn't use the church/inquisitors metaphor.  Rather, he likens our current censorious era as one of Free Speech Fire Marshalls.  The Fire Marshalls tell you when free speech is too dangerous -- not crying fire in a crowded theater, but actually fire in a crowded theater.  But then the Fire Marshalls also tell us, sometimes, that now it's safe to use some free speech again.

Eric Weinstein @EricRWeinstein

"We've had many recent stunning reversals that all have the same exact pattern. The mainstream says when the obvious may be acknowledged.

A) Time mag. says: There Was a conspiracy against Trump in the Election.

B) The Lab is Likely the Covid Origin.

C) You can enjoy Outdoors.

I could have been maskless outdoors long ago. I knew the Lab was never a racist wildeyed idea. And I knew tech was conspiring against even anti-Trump accounts that were off-narrative. They did the same on masks. And on flu worse than "no big deal" COVID. The exact same pattern.

Okay. Where is the story: "a lot of people we call crazy got everything right before we did... but we get to determine who is allowed to think and speak using platforms." The platforms are punishing everyone who doesn't wait for the signal.

Mostly conservative refuse to wait. It's like an intellectual fire drill where we all get marched out of the building of sane rational thought while lunatic firemen search for the fire that isn't there. Jon Stewart is a narrative fire Marshall. "You can't be sane just yet... Okay... Now it's safe to use your mind."

This is what conservatives and disaffected liberals have in common. We don't wait to use our mind because the New York Times or NPR isn't sure what will happen if we think for ourselves. 

Ariana Grande is a Fire Marshall. When she dances with no mask, we all can. Thx @ArianaGrande ! I think this is the common cause I feel with Conservatives most. I hate outsourcing my brain in my one beautiful life to people appointed to control when it is safe to think. I don't want intellectual fire Marshalls unless D-day is next week and we can't afford a misstep. Ariana Grande is pretty. And she can sing. But she ain't Francis Crick or Sydney Brenner [both Nobel Prize winners for medicine], and they would *never* ask me to stop thinking until Ariana and Jon Steward give the all clear.

This is why smart people hate this fire Marshall system. It's going to happen again. End it. Moral. It's not that conservatives are smarter. It is that they aren't obedient. 

The Democratic Party is becoming the party of obedient thinkers. Good puppy. Now lie down. Good boy. Now say "Flatten The Curve." "Come on. Come on boy. You can do it. Yes! You said it. I'm so proud." At some point it'll be allowable to say Anti-Racism is racism rebranded. But everyone who jumps the gun is not a good doggy. It will be acceptable to say intersectionality developed into a shakedown. But the key is did you wait for the stewardess to stand or did you jump the gun? Yes the plane is still. Yes the pilot left the aircraft after shutting the engines. But if you decide to get up before air hostess Ariana dances you are a bad bad person. 

That's not for you to decide. That's for Ariana. And Fauci. And Jon."

By the way, conservatives are in fact smarter than liberals, if you take education level as a proxy for intelligence. (Which liberals, almost to a man, do.)  Conservatives have higher rates of graduation from college.  Liberals can point to a higher number of Ph.D.'s, but that is a very small group and doesn't outweigh the big advantage conservatives have in college-level education.

Like Don Quixote on a Three Legged Donkey

It seems so long ago Joe Biden raised his hand and bold face lied to God and the entire nation he would faithfully carry out the duty of defending the Constitution and Country from enemies both foreign and domestic. He has done neither.  His pack of rabid neo-marxist, racial identity adherence yelling "our democracy is in danger" placed in positions of power is not going unnoticed by anyone paying a least bit of attention. The dems party's control of the White House circus, Senate, and the House is just a few months old, and it looks like the fully expected incompetency has risen to view.  The border situation is intentional, and more and more Americans see it as such.

The debate over strong-arming away the ballot boxes is over for now, the so called infrastructure talks are still dragging on, and the evil (only when dems are in power) filibuster isn't going anywhere. Democrats seem lost about what to do next, except tear their hair out and point fingers at each other. Convinced just months ago they finally had the country firmly in their socialist's grasp, even with the media carrying their feces dems are now in pillow biting mode and privately said to be entertaining the possibility they may get slaughtered in mid-terms.

The party's strategies have hinged on getting the big parts of 46* agenda passed before the 2022 election, after which it might be too late. So confident they were, there doesn't seem to be much of a Plan B.

Plan A -- passing dramatic power grabbing legislation like climate change and emptying the national treasury in the name of compassion to buy voter loyalty depended on eliminating, or at least weakening, the filibuster.  Just to repeat the obvious: Democrats have just 50 votes and Kamala Harris' tie-breaker vote in the 100-member Senate; it takes 60 votes to overcome a filibuster.  Stymied by rules, democrats can't ram down the throats of America their bold and innovative cancerous racial tinged anti-capitalist agenda. And it is also worth noting Republicans also hold a majority of state legislatures and governorships.

There's always a danger when commenting on politics to believe that the way things are now is the way they will always be.  But it's also the case that the democrat's contingent of disturbed anti-Semitic, anti-White radicals pushing far left wing agendas, coming redistricting, and growing minority vote for Republicans scare the shit out of dem who face a future with an ever-narrower path to power.

In Clown World There is Always Another Act Warming Up Off-stage

The media is busy making the Vegetable-in-Chief sound like a statesman, which is far less exciting than it sounds. The novelty of having a dementia patient in the White House has worn off and we are left with the reality. That reality is that there was never any reason for Biden to be president, other than he was the only option they had to replace Trump. 
Once he scrawled what he thinks is his name on the executive orders they put in front of him, there was nothing left on the agenda. The long temper tantrum no longer has a reason, so the stasis of late empire decline is back, which means nothing happens. 
The only potential for something interesting to happen is if they snuff out the vegetable and install Harris. She is revealing herself to be dumber and shallower than anyone imagined. She is fumbling the softest of questions from the most obsequious of reporters. It seems impossible, but she may have less cognitive function than her boss and he is close to brain dead. - The Z Man

He Saw Biden in All of His Glory and His Loins Quivered


46* for the Nobel Peace Prize

Sadly some Kool-Aid drinker that writes for The Hill thinks 46* deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.  No, I’m not kidding. Let’s forget for a second that Biden probably can’t even say 'Nobel Peace Prize' without reading it off a teleprompter. So what has he done to deserves this award? 

To be fair, some other lint licker nominated Biden a while ago.  But Brent Budowsky at The Hill just thinks he definitely deserves to win. Why? Well, if you want the cliff notes version, it’s for no good reason.  But if you want to hear what Brent Budowsky has to say, it’s because of all he’s achieved and all he aspires to achieve.

Now, I would probably label his accomplishments as ''Was No one watching him??'' and his future accomplishments as "dear Lord, why is this happening??" But Brent seems optimistic. I'm not sure why. And let's not forget, Joe's former boss snagged a Peace Prize for nothing more than having a nice crease in his pants or big ears or something. I can't really remember.

Brent thinks that after Trump dividing us (Biden would never say ANYTHING divisive, racist, or inappropriate, I mean besides everything he’s consistently said over the past 4 or 5 decades) Biden is restoring America’s leadership.

I figured Brent made this dumbass statement BEFORE Biden embarrassed himself and all of us on the world stage at the G7 summit in England or when he broke protocol three times with the Queen. But nah. This ratchet opinion piece came out yesterday morning.

Clearly this Brent Budowsky lives in a different universe than us. He sees Biden as compassionate and powerful. I only see a bumbling idiot.  And I do try to watch various news sources so I get a more balanced understanding of what’s going on in the world.  Biden is always an idiot.  Even CNNLOL recently ran a segment how unprecedented it is for the President’s handlers to prevent him from answering questions, literally screaming at him to stop talking.  I guess that’s all that power and confidence Brent mentioned.

If somehow Joe did manage to mumble his way into a Nobel Peace Prize, all it will tell me is that the award has gone the way of the Times Person of the Year Award.  Everything is meaningless.  Kinda of like Victoria’s Secret getting rid of their angels and hiring the flat chested dyke Megan Rapinoe and some plus sized chick to sell lingerie. That’s going to work out well. Or like when YouTube awarded YouTube with the YouTube free speech award.

But Brent saw Biden in all of his glory and his loins quivered. There’s a leader and a bastion of hope for humanity, Brent thought. He deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, Brent thought.

It seemed crazy enough when it became clear that President Porchlight was just going to undo anything Donald Trump did as president, no matter how efficacious for the country because it was something Trump did.
 
Having accomplished most of those things, what’s left for the Loki Administration to do? Why, look around at the mess and figure out ways to make the rubble bounce. -Vodka Pundit

Today in Victimhood Olympics

The above tweet is from a retweet by James Woods of one of our virtue signaling gender confused fellow citizens.  A male who believes they are female and an inspiring journalist, who seems to have a lack of real world awareness as many of his her their generation do about what makes the world go around.

This tweet says a lot about it's author. So I have endeavored to provided some understanding to this poor soul as to why they were ignored by the captains of capitalism and not awarded their desired timely employment. Because if I didn't I would feel I failed humanity. I'm like they you know.

* You lament about diversity and fair shakes in the media. Pay attention. They don't apply you. You're White sweetie.

* Your Virtue signaling isn’t valued in the real world. It's a toy of the left, advertisers and social media. It severs no real world usefulness other to make you look stupid to reasonable people

* Here on planet earth announcing one’s pronouns is more of a warning than a piece of information.

* Adding pronouns to Resumes and Cover Letters may be construed as a structural bias in your reporting, and represent a questionable mental state. (see Jim Acosta)

* Pronouns are not objective information. It's an attempt to control how people are allowed to speak to you. A sign of High-drama people with all the trappings of an overindulged, “woke” generation.

* And of course there is always a chance it has nothing to do with your pronouns at all. You could just sucked at your job of journalism.

* Personally I think it was her moustache.

Using pronouns is bad enough on social media. It's freaking obnoxious. If you don't know better than to do something so unprofessional on a resume & cover letter, then you don't need to be working in the field of journalism. There are already enough political activist journos.

You may as well self-identify as Infrared, Ultraviolet or Orange for my "race," and a idiosyncratic pedantic didactic trans Dyke with a penis because I do not like men.  You will probably have just as much chance as an unknown snagging a job in media.  Most organizations that readily employ people who declare their pronouns AND have no fear of going broke are state funded. 

Pronouns indicate someone who is likely to spend time looking for offense, trying to change company policy or trying to get someone fired when something upsets them.  I shy away from employing anyone who I felt might be offended by the smallest error someone made in their conversation. Many employers shy away from resumes with pronouns because the people that make such an issue of being "politically correct" are usually the first ones in HR kicking up a fuss over some perceived injustice.

I have no problem with live and let live. Just don't make such a GD show of it.

Lessons Learned. Lessons Unheeded

If you were educated in the West, your history lessons taught you that totalitarian regimes always end up ‘coming for your children’.  One need only to recall pictures of Adolf Hitler inspecting the child soldiers making a last stand for the Third Reich.  Or we can remember the famous story of Pavlik Morozov, one of many Stalinist-era teens who denounced his father and reported him to the NKVD for criticizing the regime.  The lesson that we were taught was that these totalitarians purposely weakened the bond between parents and child so as to neuter the family as a rival center of loyalty. The state had to be the only organization that could command one’s devotion.

We scoffed at the notion that it could happen here. But it is happening here.

One example is the overwhelming triumph of LGBTism, and now the fad of transgenderism is the triumph of the individual over the family, and the triumph of the state over it as well. By the abuse of the education system turning children against their parents through approval of toxic ideologies, the state creates willing Janissaries, fanatical in their determination that its the family that is wrong.
 
Abigail Shirer has written an incredible piece on what happens when the state apparatus comes for your children in the name of transgenderism. In some cases the ability of the state to wrestle away children as young as 13 from their families without the permission of the family is simply a 21st century version of the Devshirme (Blood-Tax), the Ottoman practice of kidnapping Christian boys, circumcising them, converting them to Islam, and training them to become Janissaries for the Sultan.

Critical Race Theory is now the new frontier of totalitarianism, lead by the same proponents of other toxic ideologies. Only this time self hate and racial division are the platform the state attempts to steal the children.

Children you should be afraid of if they succeed.

There Was A Time People Like This Would Be Ostracized and Resoundingly Told To Go To Hell

I saw “dozens of American flags,” which was “just disturbing”
 

This made me think of Katha Pollit's famous reaction to flag displays after the 9/11 attacks. Here: "Put Out No Flags" (The Nation, September 20, 2001):

"My daughter, who goes to Stuyvesant High School only blocks from the World Trade Center, thinks we should fly an American flag out our window. Definitely not, I say: The flag stands for jingoism and vengeance and war. She tells me I’m wrong–the flag means standing together and honoring the dead and saying no to terrorism......."

"It seems impossible to explain to a 13-year-old, for whom the war in Vietnam might as well be the War of Jenkins’s Ear, the connection between waving the flag and bombing ordinary people half a world away back to the proverbial stone age. I tell her she can buy a flag with her own money and fly it out her bedroom window, because that’s hers, but the living room is off-limits."

Media Already Beginning to Push Excuses For Dems Potential Losses in '22 & '24 With Kooky Conspiracy Theories

Anyone with the intestinal fortitude to endure an early morning trip around the TV dial knows the mostly female former weather girls and failed actors pretending to be pseudo-journalist of the early morning shows for the most part set the news cycle for the day. Between cute cat videos and interviewing authors no one has heard of,  since the age of anti-Trump always wander off the rails into territory of which the don't belong. National Politics.

But it's now their job to help keep eyes off the stumbling inept Biden administration that increasingly resemble a grievance infused adolescent student council from a school for troubled youth in a runaway car speeding down hill.  Over on cable news, this is the all day norm.

None have produced so much conspiracy nonsense with so little available IQ then the confused mouth breathers at MSNBC.

This being the month of June means the 18 month run-up to the midterms have official begun. And this cycle, with the dems in justified fear of America waking up and their party getting their clock cleaned November 2022, will be pulling out all the stops. This mornings Squinty & Meat Puppy Show is the type of BS we all can expect here on out: Conspiracy. Conspiracy Everywhere!

Mika kicked things off by reading at length from a column by Yale professor Timothy Snyder, wherein he spun his conspiracy theory.
 

According to NewsBusters: Snyder is the same guy who in 2017 predicted that Trump would stage the equivalent of the Nazi Reichstag fire by declaring a state of emergency and taking full control of the government. That of course never happened, but Snyder's poor powers of prognostication didn't deter the Morning Joe crew from buying into his latest scaremongering theory.

In his column, Snyder foresees nothing short of "the collapse of the United States." He says he wrote his column upon awakening from a nightmare in which he was visiting the Empire State Building when a plane crashed into it. He knew the building was going to collapse, but people wouldn't listen to him and instead just go about their business.

"Wokeness" Has Become a Warm Blanket for all the Jealous and Weak and Insecure

For what ever reason, to some ‘Wokeness’ aims may be sincere. But it's method is pure madness. It associates itself with breaking away from any kind of rationality and logic and the complete subjugation of truth and the self to emotions. Its hatred towards of everything that has been carefully built up through long established truth and tradition is an act of moral vandalism. It’s not all doom and gloom though. Take your eyes off your Twitter stream or even better switch off all your social media and look around. It’s important to take a breath.

Hard as it may be in the echo chambers of the left and the right to understand, ‘wokeness’ is only a thing in the Anglo-American world. It has made negligible impact elsewhere so far (yes, it’s making inroads into Europe but not as much as Americans might think). Even in France, the country that gave birth to the very ideas upon which the foundations of the ideology of wokedom rests (the ideas of Foucault, Derrida, Deleuze that traveled to the Californian campuses since the 1970s), ‘wokedom’ hasn’t taken root. Indeed even France’s leftist intellectuals (many of them direct disciples of Foucault and Derrida) are horrified at how mangled and misunderstood their masters’ ideas have permeated into the rot of American intellectual discourse that’s now being drip fed into the cultural mainstream.

I sometimes wish I could take some of these white and black SJWs and show them the world (I’m pretty sure most don’t travel or ever engaged with other cultures or even learn another language). To show them how the world they inhabit is so shallow and inconsequential. Go to Africa, South Asia, the Middle East, or the Far East, and many just have no idea what ‘being woke’ is. More importantly, they do not care. Their struggles and challenges are a world away from the skin deep victimhood fueled tantrums of the spoiled Anglo-American millennial middle classes.

Those that do know (the ones who travel to the West) are shocked. My Japanese friend from school days in Europe look at ‘Cancel culture’ and how it is used to destroy people, publicly humiliate them just like intellectuals were during the Cultural Revolution in China. There is no grace, no forgiveness, just sadistic pleasure in personal annihilation. They worry that the West - whom they respect and admire is on a self-inflicted path to catastrophic destruction.

Some say that ‘wokeness’ is the new religion of the aimless white middle class millenials and ‘social justice’ is its new god. I can see the analogy except in one crucial and important aspect. Unlike Christianity which grew from the ground up through the truly marginalized - women and slaves - to change the world, wokeness has always been a top down movement, just like all the ill-fated and blood soaked ‘isms’ of the past (jacobinism, socialism, and communism). False gods will always fall.

Let me be clear, there is nothing wrong with political activism per se, it is a mark of an engaged citizen and a good neighbor to stand up for things that are unfair and unjust. But when political activism is based on destructive emotions, we all lose.

I certainly don’t hate leftist woketards because hate is such an unhelpful emotion.  However, when your whole identity is based on emotional reasoning rather than a rational or empirical one then that is hard going. Nor do I blame the woke left. That would be too easy. They are just weak jealous fools.  For the most part, I blame the rest of us because we as a collective have become intimidated, loosening our grip and relinquished rightful claims to our inherited history, cultural traditions, and unique national heritages.

Tony The Martyr

EARL Done This

Tony appeared on Ricky Maddow's Conspiracy Central show Friday and laid claim to his creds as a Martyr by proclaiming the recent criticisms of him are “really very much an attack on science,” and “the thread going through what’s happening now is very much an anti-science approach."  Fauci added that the origin of the virus is an important question, but “it is being approached now in a very vehement way, in a very distorted way, I believe, by attacking me.”

We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Reality:
"Fauci emails are showing three key things:
* It was a conflict of interest for Fauci and the science community 
* Anything Trump said, the Liberal media pushed the opposite 
* CCP propaganda 
"We have a whole ecosystem of scientists in the United States and around the world that are financially, because of the grant monies, professionally and reputationally heavily invested in this type of research and had every incentive to make sure that the narrative they were wrong and that it leaked out — was suppressed." -  Rep.Mike Waltz 
Waltz’s remarks follow the publication of a Vanity Fair article which suggested State Department investigators were “repeatedly advised not to open a "Pandora’s box" in terms of investigating the origins of the Chinese coronavirus.

Throw Back Thursday - A Woman Should Be The First Person to Step Foot on Mars


From the Dank Archives of DMF 2018

"Allison McIntyre, who oversees NASA's Space Vehicle Mockup Facility in Houston, the home base for astronaut training, said it's only fair that a woman takes humanity's first steps on Mars. Twelve humans have set foot on a planetary body beyond Earth. All 12 were men, walking on the Moon during the late 1960s and early 1970s as part of the Apollo missions.  
NASA's first female astronaut to fly in the space shuttle, Sally Ride, notoriously had to explain that she wouldn't need 100 tampons for a week in space, in 1983. McIntyre says, "We have female astronauts, but we haven't put a woman on the Moon yet, and I think the first person on Mars should be a woman." 
________________________________________________________ 

I have to say, Oh Hell Yeah! I wholeheartedly agree with Ms. McIntyre. And it's About Damn Time! So in solidarity with my sisters in the struggle against the patriarchy, I have a few ideas myself who should be the first woman on Mars.  In fact, I think we should send a whole crew of females. I would throw my bra into the ring for a chance, but seeing it would probably be a one way trip in all.....uh....and I have seen the movie 'Alien'.....I remember I have some important things to attend to that weekend.  

Here are a few of my nominees for crew. You can leave your own suggestions for who you think should be the celebrated 'First Lady of Mars' in the comments below. Just don't be dissin' your Beloved Editrix or my sisters with some lame-ass women driver jokes........

The Lincoln Project Continues Habit of Stepping on Rakes


Yesterday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law a bill effectively banning confused men who think they are women from competing in women’s sports in the state of Florida.  As expected, DeSantis’ signing the law on first day of the “Pride Month” triggered the Usual Suspects, including the unhinged fanatics at the ironically named Human Rights Campaign, which is as strong an indicator as there can be that DeSantis absolutely did the right thing.

During the signing ceremony of a law that very well may effect her own life in the future, the governor’s young daughter Madison was next to him and handing him the pens with which to sign the bill: 


For reasons only known to him, Lincoln Project's Stuart Stevens, one of the more outfront members of the scummy group thought it’d be a good idea to use DeSantis’ daughter as a weapon with which to attack the popular Governor:
"I wonder when this girl grows up, how she’ll feel about being used as a prop in selling a piece of legislation that hurt people she is likely to go to school with, work with, go to church with. Using kids to sell hate for political gain is a favorite @GovRonDeSantis move."
That a member of a group that turned a blind eye for months as allegations swirled around them of predatory grooming behavior towards young men were being made against Lincoln Project would feign he cares for the young daughter of a governor he despises solely because of his political alliance with DJT was not lost on the politically aware who took to the tweeter to absolutely burn his ass for his lack of self-awareness and audacity.

A sample:


She’s a child, and Stevens and his colleagues at the Lincoln Pervert League should do the right thing and respect that instead of projecting their obvious inadequacies onto Gov. DeSantis. But then again, we know respecting underage kids (and women, for that matter) is not the Lincoln Project’s strong suit, so we shouldn’t really expect any better from this clown or his motley troupe of corrupt prevs.

[RedState]
[Sister Toldjah] 

The big ones are beginning to bite off their own.......

“What I want to fix your attention on is the vast, overall movement towards the discrediting, and finally the elimination, of every kind of human excellence – moral, cultural, social, or intellectual.  And is it not pretty to notice how ‘democracy’ (in the incantatory sense) is now doing for us the work that was once done by the most ancient Dictatorships, and by the same methods? 
You remember how one of the Greek Dictators (they called them “tyrants” then) sent an envoy to another Dictator to ask his advice about the principles of government.  The second Dictator led the envoy into a field of grain, and there he snicked off with his cane the top of every stalk that rose an inch or so above the general level. 
The moral was plain.  Allow no preeminence among your subjects.  Let no man live who is wiser or better or more famous or even handsomer than the mass.  Cut them all down to a level: all slaves, all ciphers, all nobodies.  All equals. Thus Tyrants could practice, in a sense, ‘democracy.’ 
But now ‘democracy’ can do the same work without any tyranny other than her own.  No one need now go through the field with a cane.  The little stalks will now of themselves bite the tops off the big ones.  The big ones are beginning to bite off their own in their desire to Be Like Stalks.........”
