There is presently a great deal of political spin and propaganda coming from our public representatives and partisan skewed news media, both from democrats and republicans, generally across right verses left ideological lines. But today I will attempt to get at the real heart of what concerns America. The issue of importance in our republic today, and one that is part of a global significance, is that of Economic Populism.
Populism is the broad based sentiment of the people, so that Economic Populism is the general, economic anxiety of the people.
Due to the effects of global competition, assisted by globalist policies dictated by an entrenched set of government officials, Americans have seen, over the years, a gradual reduction in their real wealth and economic strength. An example of this loss is the diminishment of manufacturing in America, resulting from such global trade deals like NAFTA. Another example is the HUGE wealth loss of the middle class during the 2008 national recession, sparking populist awakening in the forms of the Tea Party (on the right) and Occupy Wall Street (on the left). This loss of economic strength and status therefore characterizes the American populist spirit, expressed as a generalized state of economic anxiety. Now because white, middle-class Americans are still the major politically active base of the American people (as Trump shrewdly saw), their Economic Anxiety sided for Trump in the latest presidential election. Simply put, Trump ran on the slogan of “Make America Great Again,” which is a clear call for a reestablishment of our economic strength as a nation.
It should be noted, by the way, that while Trump happened to run on the republican or right leaning side of American politics, America also has Economic Populist candidates on the left, notably Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. So that in the present state of American Populism, a generalized economic anxiety shared also by left leaning Americans (who actually outnumber right leaning Americans) these two candidates, if they ran together, might most potently challenge Trump on the deepest grounds of what moves America today. Just so you know…
Now here is where I will have to delve into matters which might be characterized as conspiratorial, but I urge you to read through my entire article here. I feel that there is a close knit group of career politicians and or elected American officials who are pushing for the process of economic globalization, mainly in order for their power faction to secure domination in a global economic order. This group is that which is vaguely referred to as the “deep state.” This group, moreover, is beyond the right verses left divide in America, probably responsible for accentuating such a baseless divide and most likely having representatives on both sides.
On the republican side, for example, they are promising regular Americans that if they applied themselves they too will become rich, while actually pushing for greater polarization of wealth in America by representing mainly the interests (in actual policies) of the wealthiest Americans, all in order to subdue the masses economically and acclimate them to a global feudal system. On the democratic side, they are mainly pushing for identity based political competition and dysfunction among the people, in addition to greater public entitlements, in order to divide and pacify the people– in preparation for the same ultimate global economic and political subjugation. What’s most poignant is that if America falls victim to this new enslavement, it will represent the greatest slap on the face of humanity itself, since America stands for humankinds free expression in Liberty.
This is nevertheless the reason why both Trump and Sanders are presently being persecuted—they are both on the forefront of nationalist-populist resurgence. The only difference is that while Trump fights for American economic dignity from the traditional, capitalistic side, Sanders seeks material flourishing for the people through a collectivist approach, disparagingly referred to as “socialist.” Yet both approaches have at their heart the same intent for a material well-being of the American people, so that it is up to the American people to reconcile these ideological differences toward their true interest if they will ever wise up and unite, a task which New American Spring hopes to assist in accomplishing. The Trump impeachment trials are being used by this manipulative group with global intent to beat down a duly elected economic champion of the people, just as the latest “women can’t be elected” charge against Sanders (similar to the 2016 Democratic Party’s obstruction of his legitimate candidacy) is being used by the selfsame interest to ultimately nullify a potential left-leaning defender of the people’s welfare.
This, finally, is what I mean by the great deal of spin coming from our elected representatives, both on the right and left, propaganda that Americans, with New American Spring’s help, shall hopefully soon able to see through.
Now a post script for those who find this article too conspiratorial in spirit. Let me offer you a solution for your concerns. Let’s say that this so called “deep state” group is indeed a conspiracy fiction. Would it make any difference to the fact that the American people need to come together on the grassroots level, across ideological lines, to fight for their broad based interests? And let’s say this group exists. Do we really need to try and delve into deeply hidden and nefarious truths, when the bottom line remains, if we unite, their power will be nullified anyway? And what’s more, won’t they be the ones to reveal themselves as the opponents of an American grassroots unity movement, since this would directly threaten them? So in the end, the aim of New American Spring is legitimate, even if there is no “deep state.”
Unite, America, and build a better and dignified life for all…
