An Ice Water Bath

Dear Mr. Neff,

The 37th Foot, Battle of Minden
Thank you for a bath of ice water to bring me to my senses. Of course the U.S.A. "is already a tyranny and a dictatorship" run by the security-industrial complex, Wall Street and the Israel lobby. It is not a matter of saving America or bad things will happen. Bad things are already here. They have been here for a long time. They are not just around the corner unless we act swiftly. Unlike Paul Craig Roberts, I do not believe everything was dandy when the Gipper was the POTUS (President of the United States) and supply-side economics saved us from economic disaster. Things did not turn sour only when the Neocons grabbed power under George W. Bush. People need to come to grips with the idea that the American Empire is just the British Empire with a new headquarters and a continental empire that is protected by a really big moat. The Empire wears an "anti-imperialist" mask that was created in 1776 so it can claim to champion freedom as it maintains hegemony over the world and dominion over its subjects who are necessary cannon fodder.

British history is American history. Imperial power is an unbroken chain. 

The roots of the current pickle can be traced back, far back, back all the way to the times before 1776. In fact all the way back to 1763 when today's Empire established its world hegemony with the Seven Years' War. Its roots go even further back to 1066 when William the Conqueror moved Imperial headquarters across the big moat of the English Channel from Normandy to Saxon England. This is the Empire called Oceania by Orwell. We live here. This is our home. Voting for Rep. Ron Paul won't change 1,000 years of history. Ron Paul would not be allowed to change anything. At least Paul Craig Roberts recognizes that the new China policy of 2012 is the old Japan policy of 1938 — any country that rises to challenge the Empire's dominion must be stopped. It must be crushed. Nuclear weapons will be used along with anything worse that we have at hand.

Can the masses be awakened from the coma Madison Avenue creates or will everyone fight yet one more "good war"? Were I an American, I would not be voting, or fighting for the Empire. As a Canadian, I will do the same. Thank you, Mr. Neff.

The 20th Century engineered the transition of Imperial power from London to Washington/Wall Street. It was NOT about "saving the world for democracy and freedom," as advertised — which the activities of the Empire since 1945 prove unequivocally. Alas for Imperial aspirations, things have not gone well, though, and the end, after all these years, is at hand — for them (1%) or for us (99%).

Chief [Mr. Strakon] --

Americans can elect Ron Paul President, or they can descend into tyranny.

What Roberts seems not to have noticed is that the US is already a tyranny and a dictatorship (as Joe [Sobran] once put it, "a dictatorship of laws, not of men").

Is this just another example of [that] writer being unwilling to state the most unpleasant truths (Remember the template you supplied for all TLD communiques that assured readers, "But there is still time ..."?)

How perspicacious can we judge any writer to be who misses that (glaringly obvious) point?
