THE NEW COLONIALISM – Here’s another situation to embellish and extrapolate from in standard Dystopian Literature format. It’s the way that isolated, heavily-populated regions of pompous snobs, cowardly hypocrites and hilariously pretentious asses consider themselves the rulers of the entire rest of the nation.
Part of the inspiration for this installment came from the way Ben Franklin observed that – leading up to the Revolutionary War – even everyday citizens in Great Britain would snobbishly refer to Americans as “OUR subjects in the Colonies.”
That possibly apocryphal account easily puts one in mind of the snobbish way that Democrats pompously think they know how everyone else should live their lives. And if the people they consider to be THEIR “subjects” don’t agree, well, in the words of the fictional Darth Vader “Then they should be MADE to agree!” That’s the Democrats’ mantra. (I’m an Independent voter.)
Anyway, in our fictional future for this time around, the isolated areas of Democrat Supremacists or “Blue Meanies” began to panic as they felt their tyrannical grip on their “Colonies” slipping.
As far back as the early 21st Century the Democrat Supremacists had formed masked hate groups like Antifa – really KLAN-tifa – to inflict violence on dissenters.
The Dem-Sup control of the media, internet and film-making ensured that the only opinions that got wide-spread exposure were the opinions shared by millionaires. Dem-Sup contempt for the working class and the poor grew in direct proportion to the way in which the working class and the poor rejected the “One True Worldview” being forced upon them by Dem-Sup plutocrats.
In the minds of the Democrat Supremacists America was to be a country BY millionaires, OF millionaires and FOR millionaires … and millionaires alone. The peasants dwelling in streets filled with waste matter like in San Francisco became less and less human to the Dem-Sup oligarchs.
I’LL BE MAKING MORE OF THESE DYSTOPIA NATION BLOG POSTS, ALWAYS WITH AN EYE TO EXAMINING HOW DYSTOPIAN STORYTELLING INCORPORATES AND EMBELLISHES CONTEMPORARY REALITIES.

What is the Republican plan for reversing this slide into kleptocracy?
Remember, I’m not a Republican. Everybody knows how scuzzy they are, including more and more of their own voters. There is no lack of speculative fiction that depicts the Republicans for what they are, but too many sources still act like JUST the Republicans are the bad guys when in fact both parties are “the bad guys.” When you feel annoyed that I write these blog posts centering on the Democrats that’s how I feel regarding the many, many, many, many items that depict just the Republicans in a negative light.
Plus many of these posts are done for overseas readers since I’m often shocked at how many of them still think the Democrats are what they were decades ago.
And I’m not trying to be a contrarian blowhard, I swear. Tell me what Koch, Murdoch, etc. have done for the working-class and I’ll be glad to congratulate them publicly..
I often bash the Koch Brothers and Murdochs of the world, too. See my earlier response to your initial comment for the rest of my reply.
There was another cool map someone put together showing how all of the places that came out for Hildebeast also had very high crime rates.
Ha! Yeah, now that you mention it I remember seeing that one, too.

You might be telling the future.
I hope not.
Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
Aw, this was a really nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to create a superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot and don’t seem to get anything done.
