The seeds of violence and a Civil War are being sewn by Donald Trump as he messages his supporters to commit violence if his political power is threatened.
Doctor A writes in his post #20 of a chilling possible dystopian future,
And so it will start. The vicious fight against those who enslave the people with their policies will begin at first sporadically and then over time more consistently. Almost certainly the current administration will label the individuals involved as terrorists and eventually declare a war on terrorism. This creates a tit for tat reciprocity, a downward spiral into an abyss of escalating violence. For those of us who have walked this earth long enough we know all too well the ending scenario. Civil war with all of the malfeasance and eventual horror associated with it ensues.
But only one side will win. Let us pray it is us and not just a handful of craven elites with blood stained hands and brain structures bent on controlling the world in an attempt to satisfy their inner greed; it is a greed that can never be satisfied. The very future of humanity depends upon us winning. Losing would surely spell death to each of us as with every successive year more and more automation and robotics will relegate us to the dust bin of history. It is a history where we are no longer needed. Eventually, a cost to benefit ratio derived from an algorithm will lead someone down that slippery slope to ask the question, "Why not just kill them all?" This is the future we are fighting against and the fight must start now if we are to have any chance of winning.
Doctor A continues in his post #6 under The Community Business Venture, then The Community Business Venture (A GENERAL OVERVIEW DISCUSSION), with the following explaining why the Community Venture Is So Important,
Dare we think this feeding frenzy will stop? From an old pig proverb comes the saying, "Where the pigsty is open, the pigs run out." And run they will, straight to the trough.
Trump's win will certainly embolden him and his surrogates to use deceit and underhandedness to win a second four-year term. They have fattened themselves by propagating fake news, Russian hacking, election interference, fear mongering, voter suppression, FBI manipulation, CIA and FBI condemnation, divisiveness, and a plethora of sordid and morally bankrupt techniques.
Will Trump fabricate or use an existing situation to declare martial law in an attempt to mimic world leaders he admires as an excuse to grab more power? If his past behaviors are prescient,that is, likely to predict his future behavior,then it is more likely than not. As a corollary to this proposition, will the war they create to take the focus off of their ensuing economic disasters be added to the national debt while providing plentiful feed slop for the wealthy Military Industrial Complex in an attempt to keep the trough full?
A Trump presidency, Congressional control, and soon-to-be Supreme Court triangle of triumph make for the greater possibility of overreach. They will surely stab the triangular bayonet deeper into to bellies of the sick, downtrodden, and poor just to engorge themselves. Will reaching for a constitutional amendment to extend the President's term limit be next?
Fantastical ideations you say! Given the way they acted in the last election and since Trump has taken office, the prospect of such occurrences are not unfathomable. To the contrary, one imagines that the French in the late 1930's had similar thoughts and conversations in their Parisian cafes just before the Germans invadedtheir nightmarish speculations became all too real.
Even I see this advancing authoritarianism looming on the horizon when I write in my post #10,
We continually need to be reminded what the face of evil looks like in order to confront it. Most people in our country have not faced this degree of totalitarian evil other than in a book, movie, or history course. It is not an everyday livable experience for most of us but all of that is changing. With the ascendency of the Trump administration, evil once again cloaks us in darkness. Many have died as heroes to protect the embers of our freedom and democracy from this vile form of government. Listen, you can hear the alarm bells going off letting us know what is coming just around the corner? It is evil creeping towards us with a lust to deny us our democratic way of life. While reading the Huffington Post I came across one of these alarm bells with a not so subtle warning from President Obama.
Obama Warns Americans Against Following In The Path Of Nazi Germany
You've got to pay attention and vote, the former president said.
By Sara Boboltz 12/09/2017
It's not that democracy is fragile, exactly, but it is reversible, according to former President Barack Obama.
During an interview earlier this week at the Economic Club of Chicago, Obama reminded his audience to remain vigilant in protecting the values and institutions that make up American democracy or risk following in the path of Nazi Germany.
You have to tend to this garden of democracy, otherwise things can fall apart fairly quickly. And we've seen societies where that happens, he told interviewer Mellody Hobson, president of Ariel Investments, after defending institutions such as freedom of religion and freedom of the press. (Obama admitted, however, that the latter sometimes drove him "nuts" during his time in the White House.)
So you've got to pay attention and vote, Obama said in video of the event.
Sterling in his post #22 adds fuel to this fire when he writes,
Can you read the handwriting on the wall or do you need a rifle barrel poked into your ribs or a trudgeon slammed up side your head to get the point? The world is drinking the poisoned Kool Aid of authoritarianism which derives its power from a loss of democracy and inequality. Take note, authoritarianism and inequality are the very bedrock of slavery. Say goodbye to your freedoms unless you are willing to fight for them.
To drive this concept home, Fareed Zakaria presents a global view on the demise of democracy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2YoKJfu_90
Anyone still sitting on the side lines while Donald Trump continues to make his own power grab is inviting slavery into their lives.
But now we have "dog whistles" with nods and winks from Donald Trump as he messages his base to take to violence and support his fascism if legal events do not bend his way when he says,

This Is Fascism: Concern Grows Over Trump's Threat He Has Support of Police, Military, Bikers for Trump
https://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.c ... for-trump/
President Donald Trump delivered a thinly-veiled threat in an interview this week with the far right wing website Breitbart.
"I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump. I have the tough people, but they don't play it tough until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad," Trump told Breitbart (Google cache version.)
The remark was framed as remarks on the "general tensions between conservatives and leftists."
Trump's remarks were not widely publicized, as Breitbart, which for years was run by Trump's former campaign CEO Steve Bannon, is not a mainstream publication. Bannon infamously described the site as the platform for the alt-right.
But Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale, who focuses on tracking and fact-checking all of Trump's remarks, posted the quote to Twitter. It quickly drew concern, outrage, and condemnation and repeated charges of fascism.
The President of the United States is encouraging the military, police, and bikers to violently attack his critics on the left. https://t.co/UdP9EcxjPy

Trump is propped up by a transnational crime syndicate dominated by billionaires. Folks will emphasize the threat here -- but it's also an attempt to make himself seem rooted in all-American, blue-collar protection. In reality Trump's big backers are corrupt elites just like him. https://t.co/I0lRghCrXd

Senior Writer at RollingStone:
It is obvious Donald Trump, with his authoritarian and fascist centered speech, is talking to his base to invoke violent action should he ever loose his power of the Presidency. This is setting the stage for a Civil War.
Doctor A, post #15
The USA is primed for a revolution and/or a civil war; let us make it a nonviolent event should it occur. The midterm 2018 election for congressional control and the 2020 Presidential race will have a lot to do with the making of these possible events. The FRC business venture, featuring the Economic Inequality Rating App, (EIRA) is a means to bring about law-abiding peaceful change.
Will a civil war, with all of its chaos, morbidity, mortality, and economic collapse, really happen?
