Teaching the Middle Class how to destroy itself…

Interesting excerpts of Dennis Marker’s book 15 Steps to Corporate Feudalism

Your goal for this step is to figure out how to teach the middle class to hate their own government using a strategy that takes into consideration the political climate of the United States of thirty years ago.

Teaching the middle class to hate their government was an essential part of the plan to implement Corporate Feudalism. A middle class cannot exist without a strong government. This is because only a government has the power to stand up to the giant corporations of today’s world, or the powerful individuals and private armies of earlier times. It is the government that enforces the laws to protect the middle class from those who would like to become their economic rulers. That is why prior to the Industrial Revolution and the creation of the middle class all economies were run according to some version of the feudal system…

Thirty years ago at the onset of the Reagan Revolution, the middle class basically appreciated and respected their government and believed that living in the United States was good for the middle class. They took their status for granted. The connection between what was good about the United States and its government was clear to the American public. For the most part, people believed the government was on their side and largely responsible for the high standard of living they enjoyed. Their government built the roads that made transportation easy. Their government made the laws and regulations that kept US workers safe at their jobs. Their government ensured that their food was safe. The labor strife that had empowered the middle class was now decades old, and the Vietnam War had ended, although not well. In many ways the United States of thirty years ago was a happy place, and most people understood their government’s role in keeping it that way…

In addition to waging a full-scale campaign against the government and its employees, the Reagan administration also implemented another practice that was equally destructive to the image of government—filling government positions with people who hated government, a practice that continues to this day. For those seeking to change the United States from a middle-class democracy to a corporate feudal republic, there are three major advantages to this practice. First, you give government jobs to your conservative friends and cronies. Second, you keep dedicated public servants who want to see government succeed out of government. Third, and most importantly, you have a cadre of conservative ideologues working inside the government to sabotage and destroy the government at every turn…

    Sometimes it’s good to teach the people to “hate the government.” Take the issue of Syria for example. There they were, two more warmongering Zionists—–ex-Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fl) and Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.)—–all over the “news” programs today demanding that Obama take us to war. Warmongers, Zionists, and neo-cons all belong to the same species. Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Samantha Powers, and the rest of the interventionist (neo-con) wing of the Democratic Party (Obama is a member) started the civil war in Syria. They are also responsible for the revolution in Libya which has turned that country into a dysfunctional basket case. The aforementioned people are idiots. Can you see the abyss yet? “Hate the government?” In its present configuration (think NSA) it might be wise to do just that.
