Reader comment on item: Fighting the Last War
in response to reader comment: Political Victimhood Has Been the Tool of American Politics for a Lot Longer Than the Boomer Generation But Boomers Perfected the Technique

The reality at hand is the finality of manipulated politics and the only solution left is force by uninhibited threats of power to be released for the lack of restraint in protecting from lawlessness in rebellion to the global initiatives. Pursuits of peace are left in the squabbles of insincere desires of not being able to satisfy even the most basic of living conditions. In governmental terms, there is not enough tax revenues to satisfy the temptations of avarice in any political arena, least of all in the more economically challenged venues around the world.
So, in the more tragic circumstances, the elimination of the electorate and governance becomes the direct route in exacting the tax revenues and financial control of the more profitable sources of income (oil, gas, other energy sources, materials for militarized industrial uses - chips, component development for tech-savvy dominance of theater clashes - all of which are now within reach of any of the front-runner candidates for war.
The clamour for democracy has become the foil for diverting attention to the more sinister interactions at play globally and the almost complacent attitude towards whether the Ukraine is worth defending plays right into just how desensitized the major political players have become in listening to how to stop it.
America, at one time thought to be the bastion of democracy no longer knows how to define it. The delusion there is claiming to be democratic but the pluralistic voice is lost in the din of alternative voices desiring bureaucratic autocracy as the replacement. Of such are the departments that have allowed lawlessness to gain control; which is where America is stuck in electoral inconsistencies. Look at the street wars being fought nationally and wonder, how does this bode for reaching 2024 and any sense of a democratic victory for the electorate and safety for the future of America. The world looks on and is unsure for their own safety as well.
