America Warning

Middle class beware,
The union is out to get you.
There can’t be
A bourgeois society
If the elites don’t need you.

In an authoritarian state,
It’s too hard to differentiate,
Between all the nationalist drones.
You’re either in the in-group,
And since you’re not, you’re out.

Religion can’t save you,
And academics aren’t allowed,
Because syndicates hate media.
Democracy is just too difficult,
Fascism is so much easier.

Vote Like Your Life Depends On It

All the dangers of authoritarianism flow, really, from the perfection of the figurehead, the demagogue. If he’s perfect—then it’s surely not necessary to question him, is it? So what need is there for a free press? If he’s perfect—and you’re imperfect—then what need is there for you to worry, or care, or even vote? If he’s perfect, then surely disagreeing with him is dangerous, and therefore it’s something to be policed, watched carefully, and punished. Perfect? Then who needs an opposition…or a judiciary…or a Congress…or a democracy at all? Hey, if he’s perfect, he must have special blood—his kid’s a better inheritor of power than anyone else. Welcome back to the age of the divine right of king trump.
