Key Democrats, led by Hillary Clinton, leave no doubt that Endless War is official U.S. Doctrine - Glenn Greenwald (2014) Never ending war is really perfect if you think about it from a Statist's POV. An endless War. Near limitless political power. An ocean of functionally illiterate cannon-fodder to play with. Plus, once the entire economy is on a War footing - everyone gets to live poorer except those Crony-Capitalists in key industries that make the State's murder devices. Not to mention, ask any Keynesian (like Paul Krugman - who dreams of using War to 'turn the economy around' (see: Paul Krugman: Fake Alien Invasion Would End Economic Slump (VIDEO]) and they'll all back up the need of the State and war and you. Yes, even heaping glory and praise on our idiotic CONgressmen and women (See: Nobel Peace Prize). Yes, of course, our Political "Servants" are total sociopaths. But, meh. Welcome to rule by the Chattel Class. Listen to one of our psychopaths-in-chief: Former CIA director Leon Panetta (30-year war). Reminds me of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, the dream of all Statists: A never ending War. - Leon Panetta (2014) The underbelly of the Progressive Socialism, is the Police State needed to enforce it. A Police State requires a never ending War. It's that simple. Keep the Chattel Class slightly afraid, tax them to death, rinse, repeat. Of course, in a free society, free people trade with one another using law (that protects your body as YOUR body and that upholds contract) in an agreed upon money. It's pretty simple. Laborers don't have to pay a labor-tax to the state in a free society. It's understood that free people are the ones who actually provide one another with the goods and services needed and that the use of force against innocent people is not needed nor desired. As a matter of fact, a social need (good or service) in a free society is an opportunity to trade. People spend most of their productive lives either preparing for, looking for or trying to meet these needs. Of course, you need a sort of type of person who wants to be free, wants to work, is mostly honest - everything America isn't. No, Americans like things for 'free'. And they like magic nice-sounding intentions expressed in simple catchy-phrases. Change We Can Believe In. I am not a Crook. Hope and Change. I'm really good at killing people. Progressive Socialism sounds like propaganda because it is. The State is, by it's very nature and at it's core - the use of force against innocent humans. That's how it delineates itself from the private sector - by it's inherent immorality. Well, 101 years of Progressive Socialism have robbed us of unimagined prosperity and given us never ending war needed to maintain the oxymoron that is Progressive Socialism. Enjoy the New Economy the Progressive Sociopaths have given us and the Endless War that's needed to prop it up.
