The Soviet Union was an abomination. It tortured and killed its most loyal citizens on an industrial scale that had never before been seen. And then it exported the formula abroad to places like China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Cuba and Venezuela. Up until recently the legal apparatus in the United States specifically forbade the techniques and tactics that the Soviets used. But with the passing of the Patriot Act and the weaponization of the Judiciary we have the ingredients needed to institute the purges that Stalin perfected in the 1930s and unleashed on his people to such devastating effect during his long and nightmarish reign.
As an example, look at the techniques used by the FBI and the Justice Department in conjunction with federal judges like the vicious thug Emmet Sullivan who persecuted General Michael Flynn even after the Justice Department admitted that they had no case against him and dropped the prosecution. Or look at the recent imprisonment of the harmless protestors who were involved in the January 6th “riot.” Here is the federal justice system imprisoning without bail harmless Americans who are much less dangerous than all of the Antifa and BLM criminals who are still rioting and destroying federal property in Portland, Oregon with impunity.
The Soviet Union finally reached a point after seventy years of torturing its citizens that it could not continue. Decades of terror and insanity had finally killed off all belief in the system among the populace and this was terminal for the vitality of the state. After all, once even the stupidest of the people know it’s all a sham, they stop caring about anything but getting through the day. It finally reaches the point where life is characterized by the saying, “They pretend to pay us and we pretend to work.” When a dispirited population that is barely kept alive on the meager output of their own slave labor is the basis for a supposed world power it doesn’t take forever before the whole thing just falls apart of its own accord. The upkeep of nuclear weapons and the fighting of foreign wars requires dedication and morale. Terrorized slaves lack those qualities.
The United States and the Soviet Union are very different places. And even granting that the power of the federal government augmented by its alliance with the tech companies like Google and Facebook is a frighteningly powerful force to wield against private citizens and even state officials. But I still believe there will be a reaction to this attempt to subjugate the free people of this country by the thugs who are attempting to use the Stalinist playbook against us. Americans are not Russian serfs. They have a history of being free.
I have no proof that there exists a base of people in one of the red states that will stand up against these thugs. But I think it will happen. And if it happens at all it will inspire a groundswell of the same resistance in a thousand places. And that will put an end to these creatures. Because if the American people ever get their freedom back again, they’ll take steps to put an end to the laws and individuals that have allowed this tyranny to exist. They’ll cancel the Patriot Act. They’ll shut down the FBI and start from scratch. They’ll put every one of the FBI and CIA and media hacks who lied and persecuted innocent men during the whole Russiagate witch hunt on trial. Comey and Brennan and the rest of the Obama cronies will be thrown into prison and left to rot. And then we should empty the federal judicial bench all the way up to the Supreme Court and replace them with citizens who have worked for a living and even if they’ve never been inside a courtroom, they would be better judges of their fellow citizens than all these ivy league intellectuals who let us suffer under the current regime.
For me the only question is who will light the match? Will we have to wait until our country is falling apart at the seams before we get our Gorbachev? I hope not.
