Lie of the Political Spectrum

This well known schematic of the
American Political Spectrum is a Lie

Though I have written on this subject in the past {Government: One Body For All and Fascism: Early Weapon Against Communism as examples} I must admit that my understand of fascism was naive though sincere. Most Americans, I cannot speak to the educational system of other countries, have been taught the above political spectrum.

Tyranny of Americanism

Benevolent Populist Tyrant

The rhetoric of populism never seems to get old no matter how obvious the lessons of tyranny. Peisistratos was to seize power {illegal by definition} with the consent of the poorer folks of Athens. He did give them a slice of the pie but at what expense? Though he reads as a “good” dictator one must ask, “What was the overall economic cost to everyone?” Continue reading “Tyranny of Americanism”
