Trump 24/7: On Trump Obsession As A Scapegoat To Elude What Really Hurts

Trump 24/7: On Trump Obsessed Deranged Souls:

Many of the so-called ‘liberals’, self-described ‘democrats’ and arrogant ‘social justice warriors’ are so Trump obsessed, they confuse thinking and trumping. They have Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), one could call them TODS: Trump Obsessed Deranged Souls. Those toads, drunk on their own fumes, as some toads tend to, ponder Trump, talk Trump, think Trump, feel Trump, visualize Trump, Russianize Trump, villainize Trump, measure all values according to Trump, despise Trump, chuckle Trump, humiliate Trump, envision various tortures for Trump, etc.

Those Trump obsessed, deranged souls don’t realize that they have been moved (by Trump!) exactly where he wants them to be: Trump 24/7. They are walking Trump towers. They are Trump’s little apprentices. They are Trump Demented Slaves. All the time they spent this way, deep in their obsession, is as much time they don’t spend thinking progressively. Those toads are just in the mental swamp where real conservatives and plutocrats want them to be.

Speaking and doing Stupidities 24/7 makes one stupid: stupid is, who stupid does.

I have been saying this for years, making myself unpopular with those unworthy to be popular with. Here is another formulation of my position by a friend:

John Michael Gartland Philadelphia, PA, United States · December 26, 2018:

So many people claim to despise President Trump and yet have opened up their brain, their very soul and allowed this mesmerizer to occupy their every waking and sleeping moment, their every thought, every cell down to the mitochondria, everything they think and say is infused with eau-de-Trump, they are total slaves and are driven by his masterful power and influence. Funny that they don’t notice how much they have sacrificed to this force, how much negativity they have generated in the universe, how much hate they have created all in the name of “resistance”. How easy it is to blame one man for our inability to Love one another. How divided we have all become. For what?

Trump Derangement Syndrome is like Marxism of old: an impotent rallying cry from fake-leftists. Marxism advocated dictatorship: one or a few, or a class of men, DICTATING to everybody else. Thus Marxism was fundamentally inhuman. Right, in difficult circumstances, dictatorship ‘of the proletariat’ turned out best, because dictatorship and fascism are best when waging war (this is why Rome created the position of… dictator). So Stalin (fighting the Nazis) and Mao (fighting the Kuomintang and Imperial Japan) found it most useful. Basically Stalin’s Marxism out-Nazied the Nazis themselves as dismayed Nazis found out, for themselves. Great. But not a way to bring real progress to civilization, because dictatorship is not how human intelligence flourishes best.

TDS is like Marxism of old: it prevents real progress on tangible issues, because it’s all about righteous rage, irrational passion, thus there is no time to think about reality and worthies issues.

Worthy Issues: First of all, Referendums, RICs!

Issues such as Medicare For All, RIC Referendum Initiative Citizen (Direct, Real Democracy), Financial Transaction Tax, Tax and Legislative Evasion through Globalization, CO2 Catastrophe, Nuclear Weapons, the Nature of Money Creation (Banks Lending to the Wealthiest), Representative Oligarchy (also known as “Representative Democracy”) etc.

RIC is of course the master issue: if US citizens were asked to pass Medicare For All, in a referendum, they would. 70% of US citizens support Medicare For All:

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/08/28/most-americans-now-support-medicare-for-all-and-free-college-tuition.html

In France, RICs, referendums, is becoming the number one demand of the Yellow Jackets… The one and only demand which will change civilization, allowing it to access a higher stage, encountered only in Athens at the time of her splendor. (See note)

So let’s concentrate on that!

Trump 24/7? Trump Obsessed Deranged Slaves? Enough with these childish games!

And why these childish games? Because it’s all fake opposition: the more strident against a particular individual (here Trump), the less revolution, the needed revolution, in society at large.

Marx was strident against the multitude, over which his dictatorship was to be exerted… But making the multitude into a scapegoat, just like making Trump into a scapegoat, was not really the direction toward which revolutionary activity should be directed best. Bismarck and Lasalle understood this, and made a deeper revolution than Marx and Engels: Bismarck, guided by Lasalle’s spirit implemented in 1883 a prototype Medicare For All, first in the world.  

And why does this Derangement Syndrome, this lurid hatred against particular individuals? Why this scapegoating? Because human beings, like chimps, are programmed to go hate, and kill, the isolated individual (one doesn’t want to kill a mob, that’s too dangerous, thus ineffective).

Want to help civilization survive? Think of what will help, then foster those new ideas, and the regressive ideas of Trump will be gone two years from now.

Note for those who know some contemporary scapegoat philosophy: René Girard, a famous sort of French, at Stanford University, came out with a whole theory of scapegoating, which, although not ridiculous, reflects only a particular of my much more general and cogent theory elaborated above. Girard says scapegoating is a way to reduce violence, by directing the anger of all against each other, by focusing against one…

Instead I pointed out there is an instinct to attack the isolated individual, evolved from basic war science, as all those who study wild chimps will testify.

Does that mean Girard’s idea has no merit here? No. Indeed what happens is this: the left, the progressives, the liberals, whatever they want to call themselves, make a mass angry against the right, the so-called conservatives, the Deep State. The latter mass is also angry… Both find in Trump an excellent scapegoat: after all, as far as plutocrats go, he is rather isolated… So hating Trump is a way to direct violence against one individual… When, in truth, the violence should be directed against the system, that Representative Oiligarchy and Oligarchy, a parody of real democracy, which is not funny anymore. We need to focus away from the goat, and attack the real enemy…

Note on Athenian, Real, Direct Democracy: Athenian democracy was hurt by Socrates and his student goons. Before that, in a few decades, it did what was necessary: cripple giant Persian Achaemenid plutocracy, free Egypt, free Greek Ionian cities, leaving everlasting works of the mind…. Unfortunately Persian gold bought Sparta a fleet, among other things. So Athens, thanks to a weird, dramatic error similar to the French defeat in the second week of May 1940, nearly lost its life. Later Athens recovered, and nearly defeated Macedonia. That second phase of real, direct democracy was viewed as more lackluster. Of course: Athens had lost half of her population, and most particularly full citizens. The full citizen population didn’t recover until Athens lost two sea battles to the arch-villain Macedonian ultra senior generalissimo Antipater, who then imposed plutocracy on Athens (only the wealthiest could vote; top philosophers and contradictors got killed… even then Athens stayed under close watch; and when the Romans, by then plutocratic, came to stay, it was not much better… as the Romans did to Corinth what Alexander did to Thebes… with the same idea of showing to Athens what nasty bastards they were; the last independent Greek city, Marseilles, fell a century later… to Caesar, and not easily…)

But the basic fact remains: Athens became incredibly great because of Direct, Real, RIC democracy. Same for the Roman Republic, the real Roman Republic, with its anti-wealth laws, which, although not as democratic as Athens, was more democratic than what happened nearly ever since…

    You have summarized the current corporate media mantra on Trump where he gets non-stop coverage – one cannot escape it! Meanwhile the actual underlying problems go unmentioned. Such a gift to the plutocracy. Flint still has lead in its water, wealth is still siphoned to the top, mass incarceration, climate devastation continues, more militarization of police, corporate and financial criminals go unpunished – rewarded even. Trump is just a symptom of the underlying problems and failures.

      Exactly! I know a lawyer, she posts about Trump like crazy, expressing her hatred. But, for years, when I evoke Medicare For All, she takes glassy eyes, then flashes a giant smile, and she and her friends switch subject, as if something very embarrassing happened… With Dems like that demonicity will keep on trucking…

    The suburban top-10% white liberals have had their PC identity politics so deeply ingrained that they cannot dissociate themselves from Trump quickly enough. They are also abandoning their white bottom-50% brethren who are being killed off by PC-neoliberal social policies and rhetoric that explicitly despises them (“the deplorables”).

    Capitalism divides everyone below the pluto class when it fails. And currently, if populism rears its ugly head in a country, the plutos can have their central banks turn that economy off and have their mercenaries send in the troops.

    If Trump effects structural change to the Fed, breaking its plutocratic control, he will go down as a great President. One can only hope.

    Vive la Revolution!

      Agreed.
      However fighting Fed will not be appreciated by the Pluto class. So markets could fall 50%, or more. Then it’s ciao Trump, because retiree or soon to be retired, will not appreciate to see what separates them from the underclass disappear…
      RIC is the only way to go. Referenda all over. MEdicare For All would pass instantaneously
      The apparition of mandatory ID is a first step in that direction, my spouse (who has impeccable left and skin color credential) points out.
      Of course I can’t say this on “left” sites like the Daily Kos: I am banned for life there, same idea as French government calling me ISIS because I show the atrocities of ISIS.

      Anyway, censorship works: Patreon views saying “I am anti-Nazi” as HATE speech!

      Patreon’s Ms. Hart said:

      ““His response to us when we told him about the reform process was to nitpick and say, ‘I was being anti-Nazi,’” Ms. Hart said. “You cannot say those words on our platform. It doesn’t matter who you’re directing them at.”

      His removal from Patreon immediately stirred up others on the site.

      “I think the most likely outcome, if this continues, is that all contentious speech or behavior will put the speaker or actor at risk of serious financial and social sanctions, and strip them of all defense,” Mr. Peterson wrote in an email.”

      Vive la revolution!

    TDS is the ultimate fake out. Clowns who suffer from it need to be helped but you shouldn’t waste your time w them. I prefer the stuff on Athens at the end. So you say Athens didn’t recover from the Peleponesian war after democracy got re established?
