Convicted By The 'Rational State'

Post by Riddick » 06-06-2024 03:31 AM


The Constitution may continue to exist in name, but it has been replaced in large by an administrative state of bureaucratic experts claiming superior intellectual authority, derived from “rational” empirical science and its methodology.

Trump’s conviction is a watershed in the 50 year fight between the American people & an increasingly powerful ruling class—the last stage of a project that began over a century ago, when progressives imported German political science into America.

In terms of political war, making Trump a convicted felon is a calculated gamble to keep him from returning to the White House. There is a risk it could backfire. But the ruling class knows that Trump is entirely alone in the political establishment.

While he has the support of millions of voters—almost certainly a plurality of the American people, he is opposed by virtually all of the influential social, economic, political, and cultural interest groups that determine the outcome of elections.

Whether this gamble will succeed remains an open question. The ruling class is encouraged as it has so far successfully imposed an interpretation on recent political events that all the dominant institutions in our society accept as authoritative.

To challenge this interpretation risks censorship, firing, SWAT teams invading one’s home, de-banking, jail & denial of the most basic of rights, even one’s life. Still, despite the great risks, a steadily growing number of people rise to challenge it.

Not the conservative and Republican establishment, however. In accepting anything the 'rational' experts demand of them to avoid a fight, they have made it clear they would prefer to be ruled rather than lose their economic, social, and political status.

Yet the ruling class remains insecure until the threat Trump poses can be neutralized. He threatens to unite the country around an understanding of the older America—an understanding that denies the authority of the administrative state.

In 2016, Trump was understood wholly in terms of the personal, which means in terms of his moral virtue or his character. He is despised for resisting the “woke” morality of the ruling class, yet is judged according to the old morality.

Even now, little is said about his record as president. Instead, he is demonized over private vices made public. No political figure in our time is similarly judged. (Imagine trying to defend Joe Biden or Bill Clinton by standards of traditional morality.)

With this conviction, it seems Trump will now be judged politically, even by those who insist on assessing him in terms of his personality. What happened last week helped in transforming Trump from an obnoxious personality into a national savior.

Things are now becoming clear even to those who haven’t been paying attention, or were in denial. They are beginning to realize that Trump is protecting their rights, and paying a price for his actions in a way that is not simply personal, but political.

The citizens of the country are realizing that their way of life is dependent upon opposing the ruling class. Whether the American people themselves are willing to accept the hardship and costs of opposing the ruling class remains to be seen.

A mind should not be so open that the brains fall out; however, it should not be so closed that whatever gray matter which does reside may not be reached. ART BELL
