Via Notes From Disgracedland’s Bjarne Knausgaard The mindfuck Where there is inequality of estates, there must be inequality of power. (James Harrington) Oligarchy rests on the concentration of material power, democracy on the dispersion of non-material power. The American political economy is both an oligarchy and a democracy – a distinctive fusion of equality and inequality. Civil oligarchies represent the most significant political innovation, never seen in history before the creation of

    1. I feel that Hillary’s people fell into one of three groups. One, they love her and they went out and voted for her. Two, well, she was the better choice of two evils. Three, and here lies the loss – those that felt 100% confident that trump was such a buffoon and so horrible, that she was absolutely gonna run away with the win, so they did not bother to go vote.

      So, now the mindfuck comes into play. All the negative gossip and ranting from trump and even FBI Comey impacted the daily news! Group One, most of them stuck by her, but were shaken and worried….and the other part of that group decided she could not be trusted, especially since the FBI was now investigating! Holy Crap. Group Two, now decided both candidates were horrible and some backed off her team; those that stuck with her really were more interested in a woman president finally but became worried a first female president who fell from grace would sully the future female candidates. Group three grew in size, from group one that got scared off and from group two, those who more or less just tossed a coin.

      Even with those substantial changes in her supporters she still won the MAJORITY of the votes. Can you imagine if those changes had not taken the toll it did? And thanks to probable outside manipulation, trump was awarded the Electoral College Votes, even though those people could have changed the end result drastically and would have been right to do so, just based on the MAJORITY of POPULAR votes! That would have been easily explained and would have been in keeping with the MAJORITY OF AMERICAN VOTERS.

      So, put that in your pipe and smoke it!

    1. FC – huh? You throw out some convoluted quote from a president who left office way over 200 years ago? You and Jefferson fail to consider technology advancements (!!) that have tilted the scales so that a true democracy is hard to measure, especially in this most recent election. A FACT is that more than 3 million more people voted, pulled the lever, FOR Hillary than for trump. 3 million more people recognized the idiocy of making that man president. Those people voted against trump. Seems they were right.
