Traditional American-style models of repression (the Wilson-Palmer-Hoover-COINTELPRO model) continue to be the primary danger, although there is a more distant threat of an American Erdoganism from the Right or an American Mugabism from the Left. Hartmann’s definition of “fascism” is way too broad. And there are conservative counterparts to Hartmann who make the same accusations against the Blue Tribe that Hartmann is making against the Red Tribe. However, an issue at present is that both sides in the Red/Blue tribal civil war increasingly regard each other as existential enemies with an electoral victory by “the other side” being inherently illegitimate. The system is cracking and the big question is what will come next? Pan-secessionists, it’s time to get moving.
