The Supreme Dark Lord, Vox Day, got on Periscope last night to address the release of the FISA Memo.
The point he makes about this sort of corruption being the historical and international norm in government is spot-on, along with how and why the American republic regressed to this mean: the American republic allows non-Americans into the polity, and allows those with no skin in the game a say in how government is run.
In short, the reason the American political establishment regressed to this mean is because the American culture regressed to this mean by the admixture of alien and foreign cultures brought here by alien and foreign populations who--fair or foul--do not accept the American way of life and therefore changed it to conform to that very same mean.
Yes, this includes the SocJus Death Cult. That too is an alien and foreign culture, hostile to the American nation and culture, as shown by over a century of subversion and degeneracy (by other names heretofore, but the excuses and the aims remain the same).
This is why They Have To Go Back. Literally, metaphorically, spiritually. It is the only alternative to taking the Cold Civil War hot. War is upon you, whether you like it or not. It is now only a question of when the shooting stars.
