imho the Western Left is trying to remake EuroAmerica into an oligarchy ruled by ivy-league best/brightest.
they believe they can bring about a futuristic nanny state where everyone will be happily working for an all-powerful, monolithic, but
well-intentioned central government.
look at their agenda. Green? we need to stop polluting and developing. rural and suburban living wastes gas for their commuting, so eventually
we'll have to be resettled in wonderful concrete-box apartments where the wonderful government can easily control, I mean take care of, us.
the Ted Turners and John Kerrys, of course, will continue to have ranches in Montana and beach houses in Malibu.
I think the leftists sincerely think their policies will be economically advantageous, but history shows government control and interference
stifles economic growth.
instead of Soma we'll have tons of tv and movies (politically correct, sex obsessed, foul mouthed) to distract us. Fox News and talk radio of
course will be done away with (with the best of intentions, of course)
religions will be tolerated, as long as the practitioners don't take things too seriously (i.e., protesting abortions). look for tax priveleges
to be revoked for churches.
Freedom of Speech will be de-emphasized in favor of tolerance and sensitivity.
'1984' is not a bad comparisom. think the soviet empire; gray, impoverished, soulless.
