Posted on 11/04/2009 5:00:11 AM PST by Ronbo1948
I'm amazed by the soothsayers: Ayn Rand, for instance, who warned us fifty years ago of the risk of dictatorship or civil war if collectivism persisted. Or economist Friedrich Hayek, who wrote in the 1940s that we'll become serfs if we move toward big government.
However, what feels most prophetic lately is an obscure movie from the l970s called Little Murders. The writer, Pulitzer-Prize-winning cartoonist Jules Feiffer, predicted that the '60s would unleash a feral, primitive society.
The movie has a checkered history. It started out as a play on Broadway in the mid-'60s that was such a bomb, it closed after seven performances.
Audiences were shocked and horrified by the apocryphal world presented. At the time, New York's elite were celebrating the sexual revolution and the loosening of social mores. In contrast, Feiffer envisioned an eventual train wreck -- a nihilistic world of little and big murders of the soul.

"YES, ROBIN, THERE WILL BE BLOOD!"
The only way that can happen is by tracking names of whom voted for who.
OOPS! I did a search by title before I posted it and didn’t see it listed. A thousand pardons!
This was one of Robin’s best articles. Bad, bad times are coming.
Very good article. I think he could have stressed how the media enables this change a bit more.
The parents of the miscreants are already crying racism, because the miscreants are "of color".
Agreed. Anybody with eyes can see this culminating.
"...the Right will respond with its own ruthless army of Radical Republicans almost as bad..."
Respectfully disagree, in a fashion: Sure, there will be death and misery all around due to this brewing conflict, but to characterize the right as "almost as bad" does a disservice to our values and indeed, entire worldview. The feral, heathen, criminal left fights merely to destroy what they hate, whereas the right fights to protect the things they love.
Things the left hates:
Respect for others
A sense of humility
Deference to others not based on violence, strength and fear
Rules and norms they associate with white people
Actual white people.
Things the right loves:
Family and all loved ones
God, faith, and the respect and humility it engenders
An orderly, smoothly-functioning society
Safety and security for themselves and their loved ones.
When viewed this way, it is apparent that our goals are polar opposites and a conflict is inevitable.
FYI, "Little Murders" is available from Netflix:
Alan Arkin makes his directorial debut in this satire based on a play by Jules Feiffer. Unemotional photographer Alfred Chamberlain (Elliott Gould) meets inspirational Patsy Newquist (Marcia Rodd), but when tragedy strikes on their wedding day, he turns to his would-be wife's family -- who's anything but typical -- for support. Crime-ridden New York City serves as the setting for this dark comedy that also stars Donald Sutherland.Released: 1971
It wouldn’t be a matter of “tracking” who voted for whom,
it would be a matter of who wants to be left alone,
and who wants to take everything they have.
The way I see it happening is that the people of several states will just say “enough” and cut themselves off from the federal redistribution/socialism racket. They won’t commit violence, nor will they attack anyone. They’ll just demand to be left unmolested.
The left will DEMAND that these people be put down, VIOLENTLY.
And then we have to defend ourselves.
I hope it happens in Texas first. We are ready. Lots of regular folks, not even friends but merely acquaintances, are spitting mad and very vocal to me about it. If they said that stuff in California, they’d be arrested for a hate crime.
Or remembering which houses had all the big Obama signs.
You must ask anyone of this mindset if they have contacted their state legislator in support of the 10th Amendment sovereignty act.
This is the best way to gitterdun. We must have the legitimacy of the states’ governments behind this movement, else we’re just “rebels” who are “legitimately” put down.
Interesting article and analysis. I don’t think Robin is indicating their will be civil war between the left and right. He refers to a sociopathic epidemic that is encouraged, not discouraged, by the actions and guiding principles of the left. It is very troubling and reflects the soul of this nation. Unless and until we return to conservative principles of responsibility, freedom, and the worth of human life our society will continue to denigrate into more feral, sociopathic behaviors. He also questions obama’s relationships with the Ayers and Davis, three obviously antisocial characters......how does the acceptance of these relationships by the country give a nod to antisocial behavior?
A very thought-provoking article. Thanks for posting.
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
I should have been more clear - He who fights in defense of his own life, family and country cannot be charged with “ruthlessness” - a potential murderer killed in self defense is justice served quick and final.
The only answer is becoming strong through God’s graces. I see the evil permeate every corner of American society, if we all pray, everyday and consistently, then I know God will answer his beloved children. Standing up to evil, correcting their lies and shining the light of truth on their schemes will accomplish so much. We must reacquire our courage and stand up to the bullying and screams of the left.
I disagree. What we are seeing today is what we saw yesterday in 1920s Germany complete with Weimar sexual degeneration and anarchy. Did you know in the late 1920s Berlin, snipers hid on the roofs and shot people at random?
Murders - political and otherwise were common. A murdered Nazi “hero” was a pimp.
The rest of the Weimar scene will soon be in full here - Depression...Hyper inflation...hunger...poverty...an impotent government hated by many and supported by few.
The next act is dictatorship...The Left thinks the dictatorship they have worked for over so many years will be Leftist, but they may have awakened the sleeping giant of American Republicanism that will sweep them into early graves, prisons and exile.
“Under this sign you will conquer,” said God to Constantine when he marched on Rome to restore the Empire.
Appropriate warning of the evil that can be unleashed when a society turns its back on God.
There’s always hope, after last night’s election results I believe that people are beginning to see the light.
Coming soon: ARMED TEACHERS.
I see the same thing happening - Armed Patriots form militias and cut themselves off from the government. The Left will demand the soldiers be sent in to restore “order.”
Then things will get very interesting - will the regular Army and/or National Guard open fire on the “rebels?” What if the USMC turns against the government orders and fire on the Army, National Guard and USAF?
Fill in the blank, “What if?”
The Russian Revolution began when the army joined the rebels.
When the left figured out the OK were serious,
they went into hystrionics.
I think the Left really didn’t brain storm this fascist putsch of Obama very well, for example, as you noted, the Oath Keepers, who have signed on vast numbers of military and law enforcement officers will refuse to fire on their fellow countrymen in case of rebellion.
This is world ruled by force at the end of the day and when those in uniform who carry the guns either refuse to fire on the rebels, or go over to the rebels, you cannot rule.
The reason why in Nazi Germany Hitler had the military and police to swear a personal oath to him. He was well aware they could overthrow him at any time if the oath was to Germany.
Thus ‘bammy’s need for a “Civilian Defense Force”, likely sworn to him instead of the Constitution.
How do you explain our lower crime rate and murder rate?
Our murder rate today is about what it was in the mid 1960s.
I see the same thing happening - Armed Patriots form militias and cut themselves off from the government. The Left will demand the soldiers be sent in to restore order.
I remember the angry rioters trying to torch every building in sight in the Watts part of Los Angeles, the National Guard holding the perimeter, and the Korean owners of the small stores defending themselves by shooting from the roofs of their buildings any rioter who came too close.
I remember the people after Hurricane Andrew came thru in Florida, without police protection, forming militias and declaring that anyone attempting to loot would be shot ... and survivors would be shot again.
Look for this to happen again when Obama is turned out of office, or even more quickly...
"Everywhere we look, from the ghettos to the corporations to the pristine halls of the government, we can see people whose hearts and souls are empty."
Many thanks for posting this, Ronbo.
Would've totally missed it, otherwise; and, this is far too important, timely and spot-on for anyone not to read. While there's still time, anyway.
First you crush the soul...Then you fill the soul with...
Yes, HE’S ALIVE AGAIN!
“At a homecoming dance at Richmond High School (in the same district as the middle school stoning), a fifteen-year-old girl was beaten and gang-raped for over two hours while a crowd from the dance watched, laughed, and photographed the scene. No one called the cops.
The girl was left unconscious, dumped under a bench. She had to be airlifted to a specialty hospital.”
We have nurtured and condoned a whole generation of sociopaths, and our POTUS is the Head Sociopath.
A fine piece of writing. Thanks for the ping.
