Corporatism's Plan for the Dumbing Down of America

Corporatism is a very powerful, aggressive entity that has a very ambitious objective in mind; to take control of this nation's political system, then the government and, finally, our democracy. In accelerating this process it is following a plan which calls for the dumbing down of America. The strategy, when we consider the corporate mentality, actions and behavior is simply this: the American people, under current conditions, are an obstacle, standing in the way of this objective. And so they must be neutralized, moved out of the way.


Corporatism, aka Corporate America, can be viewed as a parent organization with the Military-Industrial Complex as its largest, most powerful division. The other divisions include the major transnational Corporations, Wall Street, the U.S. Congress (100% of Republicans and an increasing number of Democrats), the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the Republican state governors and their legislatures. The combination of these various divisions makes for a very powerful force that is trying to steamroll its way across and over America.


So let's talk about how this powerful organization's aggressive plan and agenda designed to dumb down America and what they expect to gain by their main strategies:


*One of their primary goals is to significantly weaken this nation's political process and democracy by using every tactic and technique at their disposal to water down or even eliminate the voting rights of specific segments of the electorate. This organization and its Republican governors and legislatures have been enacting laws that mandate the use of photo-ID's as a voting requirement. They are, obviously, targeting African Americans, Hispanics and other strong supporters of the Democratic Party. Their goal is to create an atmosphere that frustrates and discourages potential left-leaning voters to the point that they stay home; it's their primary tool for voter suppression.


*Their aim is to cloud and condition the minds of Americans to such an extent that they remain uninformed, or so misinformed that they become irrelevant to the political process and allow the system to become even more    corrupted. This is largely accomplished through the corporate-controlled mainstream media that they use to spread their propaganda. They want the American people to immerse themselves in movies that feature intense violence, space aliens and vampires, and in watching scores of pathetic situation comedies and reality TV shows. They want people to become so addicted to their smart phones, texting and use of an infinite number of apps that they no longer have any time to become better informed about the myriad of problems facing America.


They use their monopoly of newspapers and TV stations to send out a constant stream of news filled with violence, hatred and really nothing of any real substance; they devote no time to debates or deep discussions about the nation's problems; there are virtually no in-depth discussions of solutions to the problems this country faces. They want the people to become robotic, to become like sheeple, that combination of sheep and cattle with a herd mentality.


*Education is the key to America's future and is now coming under widespread siege. Tuitions continue their upward climb and young Americans have to literally sign themselves into bondage as they incur huge student loans; these loans now, collectively, exceed $1 trillion. Then, after graduation, millions of students struggle to pay back these large debts while a great many of them can't even find jobs. When education should be this nation's greatest priority it is, instead, being grossly neglected; and teachers, the cornerstone of this great institution are coming under constant attack and losing their jobs all across America. And we ask why? Because it's a part of the overall plan; when the mass of the American people slowly but surely become less educated, less creative and less innovative, they will then become more passive, more submissive and far easier to manipulate and control.
