Feudalism Is Coming to America, and You're the Serf
By Veronika Kyrylenko February 22, 2021
In my recent article "Feudalism returns to America?," I outlined some general economic and socio-political trends that dominate in America and that indicate an establishment of neo-feudalism.
Joe Biden's policies accelerate them, bringing up a world of almighty lords regulating "commoners'" lives by decree, with new clergy explaining from our small screens how much lords care about their loyal subjects...er, constituency.
Even though America was never a feudal society, it doesn't mean that it can't be.
What we are observing right now is a new form of aristocracy developing in the United States and beyond, as wealth in our post-industrial economy is concentrated in ever fewer hands.
We are seeing those hands overwhelmingly giving and aligning with the Democratic Party, as their believes closely collide — such as those on foreign trade, climate change, and migration.
Simultaneous with the new "aristocratic" ruling class rises a class of new clerisy that provides intellectual support of the emerging system — the media, academia, and celebrity influencers (pop culture).
Thus, fascization is a political part of the much larger trend.
Big Tech's censorship and persecution of conservatives are needed to create a general submission to the arising order.
Your freedom of speech comes costly.
The "cancel culture" dominated the whole of 2020 and is likely to boom in 2021.
But there was another, even more disturbing process unfolding covertly, and even more damaging to a liberal democracy, but great for the neo-feudal order.
This process was explicitly detailed in the shocking article titled "The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign that Saved the 2020 Election," published by Time.
To get a clue on how deep and wide the establishment conspiracy — the author uses this world in a positive sense — against Trump was, it is certainly a must-read.
Clearly, for the establishment, democracy is a rule of the Democrats (and Republicans aligned with them) and nothing else.
The alienation of the Washington insiders from the ordinary Americans who felt dissatisfied with political corruption and their deteriorating economic state brought Donald Trump to power — "the redneck revolt" in 2016 was akin to the peasant rebellions in the Middle Ages.
A sophisticated, well organized cabal of lords who control finances and the flow of information curb it with all their might four years later.
