Edward Griffin clearly articulates the realities of American and European politics where the squabbles between the Political Left and the Political Right are pure street theatre designed to deflect your attention away from the fact that both sides of the political divide are committed to expanding the role of Big Government [aka Collectivism] as they frog march their divided nations towards a totalitarian One World Government.
Collectivism is the moral stance, political philosophy, ideology, or social outlook that emphasizes the significance of groups – their identities, goals, rights, outcomes, etc. – and tends to analyze issues in those terms.
Collectivism is a basic cultural element that exists as the reverse of individualism (in the same way high context culture exists as the reverse of low context culture), and in some cases stresses the priority of group goals over individual goals and the importance of cohesion within social groups (such as an ingroup, in whichever specific context it is defined).
Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible.
Totalitarian regimes stay in political power through an all-encompassing propaganda campaign, which is disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, a single party that is often marked by political repression, personality cultism, control over the economy, regulation and restriction of speech, mass surveillance, and widespread use of terror.
This is why many people believe:
It doesn’t matter who you vote for The Government always wins..
