    Surge Summary: People’s inclination generally is to just go-along with things, cattle-like; not to rock the boat as long as their immediate needs are being met. America is currently facing the grim specter of fascistic, corporatist government. Will the “cattle” response prevail, or will those who treasure liberty stand up, speak out, push back?

    by Allan Erickson

    The unfortunate truth is most people are like cattle. So long as they have food and water, they are content to stand about eating and drinking. They are easily herded. And when crisis comes, they are easily stampeded.

    We are in a situation we’ve long been warning would come. A substantial blending of corporate and government power has been accomplished. As a result, the Bill of Rights is on the chopping block.

    Like cattle, we were content to stand around eating and drinking while the forces of Control dismantled our institutions, replacing God with the State. We were easily herded. And now, manufactured crises are leveraged to stampede us into conformity.

    Ironic that we once fought fascism, but now, we embrace it, or tolerate it, thinking this too shall pass.

    Considering current events and the definition of fascism, we see more clearly the dangers. Famous Italian fascist Benito Mussolini defined fascism thusly:

    “Anti-individualistic, the Fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with those of the State, which stands for the conscience and the universal will of man as a historic entity.

    The Fascist conception of the State is all embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value. Thus understood, Fascism is totalitarian.

    We are, in other words, a state which controls all forces acting in nature. We control political forces, we control moral forces, we control economic forces, and therefore we are a full-blown Corporative state.”

    It is perhaps stunning to some people realizing the Swamp is quite real, populated by people who believe they have a divine right to rule, to control all natural, political, moral, and economic forces under the banner of the Corporative State. Political correctness and the Cancel Culture helped create the Corporative State, and these weapons help sustain it as well.

    Democrats & the Cancel Culture are indistinguishable. If you believe Americanism is largely about individual rights, God-endowed, then you are out of step with the State. You are no longer a steer to be herded. You are a son or daughter of Liberty. And you are a target. You are a ‘domestic terrorist.’ Patriotism is canceled.

    Forbes and Speaker Nancy Pelosi state clearly you are an enemy of the State, a heretic deserving Cancellation. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, and others have made it very clear what is expected, and if you refuse your place in the herd, you will be cut out and branded. The growing list of corporations enforcing conformity with bayonets is the established order now that corporations, politicians, and bureaucrats control the entire federal government and elections.

    A skirmish at the Capitol January 6th was organized in part by the Swamp to start a stampede so that more cattle will join the herd. American patriots in 1776 faced eight years of brutal war to secure liberty in the colonies. They refused to be cattle. Will we also refuse and resist, or will we remain cattle, unaware of the slaughter to come?
