These familiar acceptable phrases and mental patterns of rationalization, not reason, created the truisms, not truth, around which entire generations and whole populations built their lives. But in actuality, outside of the mind and in the real world, these familiar "lyrics" and "choruses" are not merely untrue, they are in fact nonsensical.... unfortunately, again, and because of the cultural changes initiated by Reagan that lowered the standard of living for just about everyone except for the rich who were the beneficiaries of that switch.... and which under the banner of capitalism brought in Communist style draconian pressures, such as the two-salary family, thus institutional child-caring at early ages, yet without the Communist system's benefits of job security, free child and medical care, and so on. So, unfortunately for many people, with prices on essentials like health care and drugs going through the roof....


This is the second of three parts detailing the history of the Republican Party's incredibly disciplined, relentlessly persistent, and amazingly cohesive nearly fifty-year campaign to gain advantage and wealth for their benefactors, the corporations and the “Filthy Rich,” through totally concocted untruths. It continues the exposition of this incredible phenomenon of decades long and increasing intentional misrepresentations used by one party representing a tiny segment of the electorate to weave a fabric of falsity over the eyes of the American public. Similar to a kind of hypnotic trance, it is a widely accepted but unreal and mostly opposite mental state acting like a filter to reality, blocking out the truth and substituting a fantasy quilt woven of verbal constructions. These constructions -- the "obvious truths" -- are designed to please the ear, rationalize the urges, and comfort the ego, so that they will become acceptable substitutes for reason and honest perception in a population which has also been intentionally burdened, stressed, and busied through policies intended to keep them submissive and fearful. This coordination of policy and mantra is a strategic effort, emanating essentially from a sliver of the population, as a terrified reaction initially to a rapid series of popular developments and mass movements with global reach, with the apparent power and possibility of overthrowing a multigenerational structure of power, wealth, privilege, and dominance. The acceptability of this substitute narrative was shaken only in recent years as it collided dramatically with the system that it had spawned, exposing its roots in the minds of a class and its utter lack of foundation in reality. The story of this lengthy and comprehensive intentional deception, its dramatic collision, and the gradual awakening of the population to the real forces behind the events of their lives and times, revealed in the shock of the disruption, continues.
