Steve Bannon: Donald Trump’s chief strategist has a grand vision for remaking America — Quartz

Interesting article:

“Bannon’s political philosophy boils down to three things that a Western country, and America in particular, needs to be successful: Capitalism, nationalism, and “Judeo-Christian values.” These are all deeply related, and essential.”

I found this quote from Saul Alinsky’s Book RFR that so many people quote and his book and ideas deserve more credit than probably given for the genius involved for the way in which to goad certain groups of people, myself particularly.

Each basin has its trigger points and the CP-RED-POWER Basin has particular vulnerabilities to which this book reveals.

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.” — SAUL ALINSKY

The VERY FACT that he began the book with a quote like this shows how “priming” works to dishevel logic and use the rationale of values over logic to reveal these vulnerabilities.

What is interesting and frustrating at this point in our nations history are the fruits of the 60s which so many of us took part.

What’s happening in the world today is nothing more than values conflict and as a result, the question:

How should the world be?

Too much of the noise grabbed by superficial media and spun like webs to capture the unwary fails to address the deeper issues in play.

THERE IS A “CIVIL WAR” in AMERICA.

It’s civil, but nonetheless a war of values and it’s being played out emergent from the nature of the structure that it is emerging from.

It, along with many other converging cycles are reaching critical mass, as a result of the conditions which have spawn it.

We live in interesting times.
