The classic leftist defense mechanism against a threat is to morph into fascism.

It is highly probable that that as the West comes under pressure in Eastern Europe, Asia and the Middle East the status quo ideology will become increasingly repressive. This is probably unavoidable. But it is what comes after the eventual collapse of liberal fascism that will either save the world or drown under the surging tide of barbarism. The phase after the collapse of Western fascism will either tend toward a new “dark age” or lead to a new era in prosperity and creativity.

Therefore the solution set consists of those actions that will maximize the exit from the fascist phase on the best possible terms.Fighting Entropy Part 2 | Belmont Club

Your Say

ISIS is a savvy enemy, but they're not so good that I'm seeing the apocalypse, yet.

Nuclear war with Russia: very, very bad. Trading nukes with China: bad. A single or a few nukes from an ay-rab nation: small potatoes overall.

We can still fight.

But, we're going to need Reagan, Churchill, and Washington themselves to step up.

The projection is not an either/or. It is both.

First the Dark Age and then the Renaissance.

from a Patton speech:

"Men, all this stuff you hear about America not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the war, is a lot of bullshit. Americans love to fight. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle ...
No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. You won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country."

Fascism becomes as all governmental structures do, rigid and unable to adapt to any change. The only response is to jail offenders and/or execute them. That works when dealing with minor numbers; when those disobeying laws grow large enough to make it impossible for the rulers to effectively control the population.

Here, in America, you are seeing the beginnings of this with the rejection of school lunches, Common Core tests, school board challenges, lack of gun registration in CT and other push backs. More will come. The State cannot jail everyone.
