    It's just sad to see people so divided like this. It's exactly what the powers that be want...

    Had to look up Hegelian Dialectic to see origins and discovered contrast to Marx who was a materialist. I'm not exactly an expert on Marx, mostly because even though he was important in history, I really believed we were moving beyond those belief systems. We haven't yet.

    I happen to know a lot of progressives and liberals who believe in God and aren't 'material origin' sorts.

    I've said it before, we should be getting together to share how we worship God. Not dividing ourselves up over it. We have to stop looking at each other as 'unclean'. Or 'sinners'.

    I wonder if in 1932 there was a Hitler Derangement syndrome?

    NAP

    It seems about 70% of the U.S. population is suffering right now.

    I had a Professor that once remarked that when you find yourself in accordance with the majority it is time to reassess. I don't think I will this time.

    Dictatorial regimes don't arise out of a vacuum. The German people suffered terribly under reparations. Russians under the czars, and the American heartland and rust belt under globalist economic policy.

    It is no secret to me, how Trump, (with the help of Bannon, in particular) won the presidency.

    agreed, and as usual the power brokers just don't give a damn. Which is why I find this ludicrous and sad. The hillbilly elegy was heard and turned against them by the the most destructive human beings in the country, but isn't that the way it always works.
