Business Big Tech and the Democratic Party Are Leading America to a Fascist Future, by Robert Bridge

Fascism is a corporate-government alliance, and that seems an apt description of what’s going on between big tech and the Democrats. From Robert Bridge at strategic-culture.org:

Although there may not be tanks on the streets and a dictator inciting crowds from his bully pulpit, the end result has been pretty much the same.

Most Americans can probably still remember a time when U.S. companies were in business with one goal in mind – providing a product or service for profit. It was a noble idea, the bedrock of capitalism, in which everyone stood to gain in the process.

Today, the monopolistic powers now enjoyed by a handful of mighty corporations, which are no longer shy about declaring their political bent, have tempted them to wade into the deep end of the political pool with deleterious effects on democracy. Indeed, corporate power wedded to government is nothing less than fascism.

In presenting such a case, it is important to put aside the notion that fascism is a purely right-wing phenomenon, complete with a chauvinistic demagogue haranguing a frenzied crowd. The new dictator on the block is not some fanatical Fuhrer, but rather Silicon Valley, the fountainhead of technological advancement and the formidable fortress of liberal ideology.

One response to “Business Big Tech and the Democratic Party Are Leading America to a Fascist Future, by Robert Bridge

  1. Both Hitler and Mussolini invited a consortium of leading businesses (eg Volkswagen, BMW led by Krupps) to align with government to further fascist aims…the current scenario is no different. These articles are quite frightening but we have to face reality. My biggest worry is the apathy of those conservative leaders who purport to look after our interests. Clearly we now have to look outside the old democratic structure which has been brutalised by the left. They will twist it further until the results become so predictable that we just tell them the result before it happens as with Russia and any number of mango republics. What to do ? it just does not come naturally to conservatives to do nasty things. Viz Roger Scruton whose ideal conservative protester’s board would say “Hesitate!” I think the answer is to agitate in an agressive way and we see this beginning clearly with The Capitol Hill protests. 75 million Americans disempowered and, in the case of poor Babbit, shot. Clearly the bell has sounded. Oliver, Perth Western Australia.
