John B. Wells is joined by experts on society, history, and culture, James Bennett and Mike Lotus, who discussed how America is currently going through a painful transition period, but our best days may be yet to come. “The current crisis we are in is not the demise of America,” Lotus contended, suggesting that the present polarization of society is a pang experienced by the nation as it transforms into something new and the populace grapples with how to adjust to this evolution.
Driving the transformation of America, they argued, is the breakdown of our current system of government, particularly the “welfare state model,” which is being shown to be unsustainable going into the future.
While the authors were concerned about the increase in police militarization and government spying, they suggested that these trends are symptomatic of systemic failure which they see happening to the country. Bennett explained that as a political system breaks down, it sees diminishing returns from its usual practices which leads to people in power to “double down” on their tactics in an attempt to maintain the status quo. However, Lotus expressed hope that the United States is not headed toward a “1930′s like Nazi takeover scenario,” since America has historically been resistant to totalitarian government or fascist political parties. Additionally, he surmised that transforming America into dictatorship would require “massive support” and couldn’t be done via a small coup or executive order.Help us spread the ANTIDOTE to corporate propaganda.
