Recently I have started to truly evaluate what our current nationalist model truly is from an objective viewpoint rather than my own personal belief of what I was raised to believe our countries national identity is and has been. In vivid discussion with some close, personal friends whom I respect well, the issue of whether or not President Obama is a socialist inevitably comes up.

From everything I understand, Obama doesn’t believe in capitalist principles and clearly favors controlled social economic policies in contrast to free-market economic principles. He adopts a highly socialist view but at the same time retains a nationalist appeal. He has an almost cult-like leadership quality as well as a following that is devoid of an inherent understanding of facts with a very propagandized view of current events. I think there are three principle supporting arguments that not only is Obama a socialist, but that the leadership of both the Republican and Democratic parties are both in fact fascist socialist.

1. At a very minimum, Obama believes in mixed market economics and supports more regulation which is a form of mixed to controlled economies which by definition is socialism on an economic level. The principle belief of socialism is the belief in collective salvation, which he spoke extensively on during his campaign and first year in office. He was forced to dial back his rhetoric on this topic to avoid being alienated as a fringe Liberation Theologist. (reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0crhth_g9E

2. The illusion that he is a capitalist is because he is pro-buisiness. Now, this is where I will deviate from the typical analysis of him being a Marxist and point out that fascism is characterized by a combination of controlled (or mixed) market economics and private industry rather than a communist style (planned economy) government controlled means of production in the economy. (reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed_economy

3. He’s also a nationalist, meaning he places his agenda on a national level rather than a globalists worldwide agenda (though some debate this and think he’s a globalist; I see no real support of this that’s credible). (reference: http://blog.heritage.org/2011/12/07/president-obama%E2%80%99s-new-model-teddy-roosevelt%E2%80%99s-new-nationalism-speech/)

Conclusion: Given those positions, that makes him a nationalist, a socialist and a fascist. That is by defacto a “national socialist”. Socialism (and fascism) has many forms and fascism is one of them. I should note, I believe he’s absolutely no different than Bush or even Romney in this respect. Now, google National Socialism and you’ll have your answer to what Obama really is, keeping in mind that specific “parties” with these idiologies have bigoted principles at their core due to “ethnic nationalism”. Being that we are an ethnically diverse nation, our brand of national socialism is likely to be xenophobic (e.g. least common minorities); hence our Red Fascism (neoconservatism) and Blue Socialism (liberalism) coalesce into National Socialism; e.g. Progressivism.

Progressives today are like the Nationalist Socialist Party of the 1930’s. Left unchecked, they try to rule the world through propoganda, war, tyranny and opression.

Just imagine where we might be in a few hundred years from now. I don’t think this is sustainable and eventually we will have to adopt a completely new paradigm or possibly resort to an older one. Production and consumption without restoration just doesn’t make sense.

I hope everyone has a fantastic, safe and fun holiday weekend!

I can remember, as a small child, going to Radio Shack with my father to buy, what was at the time, an amazing new innovation; a personal computer. It was a Tandy 1000. I spent hour after hour pouring through the instruction manual at the age of 11 learning how to create my very first program. After all, a boy needed to be able to track his baseball card and comic book collection. From playing with DOS to fighting with the paper feeder to playing my first online MUD as a teenager, that computer served our family well (aside from my escapades in virtuality). I spent a good deal of my misbegotten childhood in a dark room lit with monochrome green while the Internet gave birth to a new era of human existence and forever changed what we know as the Human Condition.

Ever since then, whether it was the Apple Newton, the Sony Cassiopia, the Gateway 100 series laptops or the ubiquitous eMachine and eventually the iPhone and iPad, I have had a distinct fascination with how technology not only changes our lives but changes the very nature of what we are by expanding the boundaries of human interaction and inter-connectivity.

In 1996, sitting in my brother’s apartment, we exchanged ideas about how this new thing called the Internet and the World Wide Web could change everything. We traded knowledge about graphic design, presentations and I was introduced to HTML through the HTML 1.1 Quick Start Guide, a fantastically small book by current standards that taught me everything I needed to know about making web pages in just a few short days. It was simple, it was powerful and it was absolutely amazing.

In a few short months we began developing websites for customers, looking for schools that could teach us more. To our dismay, most of those schools asked us to either come assist in teaching or we corrected their school’s website code for them. My mind became a sponge and the virtual reality of the protocol became my new frontier. Not only was a career born but a passion for developing new, innovative solutions had been found. A passion I hold to this day as a web developer, technologist, and IT administrator.

In the end, I have my father, my brother, Radio Shack and the Tandy 1000 of all things to thank for it.

As for this site, well, it’s a dedication to all things strange, odd and extraordinary I find that provide that same inkling of passion that once amazed me as a child when I first found something new and amazing, something that changed my world view. I thought it only appropriate that it be a WordPress site, since after all, I make my living partially with great thanks to the WordPress team and use their technology daily. So to them I tip my hat and to anything else that shows up here, let’s just say I found it intriguing enough to share.

I hope you enjoy.

Hello world!
