Are we already living in a authoritarian state

Simple question.

“If you are authoritarian, you have to have a system supporting you. You cannot just be an authoritarian by yourself. But certainly, in the United States, with today’s condition, you can easily have an authoritarian. In many ways, you’re already in the authoritarian state. You just don’t know it,” Weiwei said.

And today wokeness isn’t helping.


forced to vax. forced to wear useless mask. forced to stay home, forced to close your business…

leftist utopia finally

ps cant travel without papers. cant dine without papers

finally like the soviets huh lefties?


Look, cancel culture and political correctness can are a problem, sure.

But to compare it to the Cultural Revolution? Absolutely absurd.

Clearly the left is attempting to make it a reality, but I would submit that they moved too soon.


i think that everytime time too. but then, it stays

Too many of the moves this time reach way down on the individual level in ways that can’t be ignored. The civil disobedience is building more and more, and it involves large numbers of state governments and the courts.


i’m ready for the revolution when you are

it’s way past due


YES we are! Under the guise of emergency measures because of the covid pandemic authoritarianism is in our face, just like the masks! :mask: That two week containment lock down is going on two years now with no end sight. The Dems found a way to steal elections and they are going to keep it up as long as possible to lock down their iron fisted control.


I am not the confused here; comparing PC to the Cultural Revolution is absolutely ridiculous.

If it stays like this for five years, I’m with you. But it seems this is all temporary in light of a pandemic.

Expect a peaceful reset on election day. Now how the socialist element of the Dem party takes that is yet to be determined. I hope peacefully, but if not…

if it happens, and effective, it wont be peaceful

Dude, it’s in the OP

what’s in the OP?

no one’s “comparing PC to cultural revolution”

pure deflection. stop it

It’s right there:

Chinese dissenter and artist Ai Weiwei warned that political correctness has begun to show shades of similarities to Mao Zedong’s infamous Cultural Revolution in China.

And it is absolute absurdity.

You can be told what to purchase.

You can be told what drugs to take.

You can be told what to wear.

You can be told how many people you may be around.



I really don’t think so.

Americans pretty much do whatever we want, when we want. We really take it for granted.

And that especially includes complaining. We’ve got that down pat.

Let’s just say there wasn’t a lot of meming going on.
