Minority Rule in America?
If you haven’t heard Kenneth Williams explain the Republican attempt to rule America as a minority, you can watch the full 2-hour video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qj5-yDxnXQY.
Kenneth Williams “Why Republicans are determined to rule as a minority!”
Williams explained it carefully to the College of Complexes free speech meeting in Dallas on February 23. He began by pointing out that popular American opinion and Republican Party dogma are growing more and more disparate every election cycle. While people want women’s rights, Republicans go against. While people want gay marriage, Republicans go against. People want health care, Etc etc etc
Willilams explains that democracy is ultimately doomed under the Republican’s plan. They have to impose values that the American public doesn’t want. That’s why they work so hard at voter deception and voter repression. If nothing changes, fascism is virtually inevitable.
But Kenneth Williams predicts that something will change. In fact, it is already changing as witness the more robust turnout in the 2018 elections. People are waking up and taking a hand in things. Fascism cannot prevail against an enlightened and activated body politic. Kenneth Williams has great ideas, as you will see from the video, about how to grow democracy in our fair land.
Nevertheless, one can see from everyday politics that Williams is describing today’s situation accurately. On the immigration issue alone, the Republicans are varying further and further away from public opinion. Furthermore, they don’t seem to care!
Let’s figure it out
Our ability to fight against minority rule (fascism) is strengthened when we understand what we are up against. Here’s how to look at the two polarizing trends pulling away from each other:
- In the first trend, Americans are more and more enlightened. That’s because we are better educated. The internet has given us lifelong learning. As people understand more, especially about people they previously would never have contacted, they become kinder, more flexible, and more forgiving. So people are getting smarter and, well, better.
- The second trend has to do with the distribution of wealth. Currently, wealth and income inequality are at all-time highs in all the rich nations and especially in the United States. Fewer and fewer people have more and more of the money. Those are the people that the Republicans are catering to. The only way to please them, and to keep on pleasing them, is with minority rule.
Kenneth Williams is a brilliant speaker and I recommend you have him at your meetings soon. Enlighten and activate Americans so that fascism, minority rule, won’t stand a chance!
