Opposing the U.S. military empire, and the repression and inequality it reinforces, requires making a choice between accepting or rejecting a comfortable false reality. The state gains the people’s complacency with endless war by drastically reducing casualty numbers, like with the pentagon’s absurdly low Iraq War death counts. By perpetually manufacturing foreign threats, which is being done right now around Venezuela, Iran, and North Korea. By teaching white Americans, much like white Germans were taught during the moral collapse of their country, that they’re an exceptional people who deserve the world’s subservience. And by hiding the atrocities of the empire from a public saturated in vapid political punditry and media distractions.

Climate change denial, created with the most asinine and dangerous series of lies any power elite has ever pushed, can’t last much longer. Reality won’t allow it to. As places like Miami are now under permanent submersion in some sections, the Trump administration reassures its supporters of the climate’s stability by calling these water encroachments “recurrent flooding.” Three in ten Americans, saturated in the propaganda of garbage sites like Brietbart, can believe this explanation. But these are the last years where they’ll be able to keep believing it.

While the New York Times published an article last week called “Why Democrats Need Wall Street,” tens of millions of people in this country were living in unacceptable conditions. 51% of American workers now make less than $30,000 a year, not enough for them to afford basic needs without going massively into debt. 80% of Americans are in some level of debt, and 70% have less than a thousand dollars in savings. This is making the country regress into a developing world lifestyle for the majority of the population, with most unable to afford a new car and one third unable to afford food, shelter or medical care.

Americans are kept compliant with endless war the same way white supremacists and anti-semites rationalize their actions. With both there’s an effort to deny or dismiss past atrocities that have come from holding these worldviews. In neo-Nazi circles, the Holocaust is revised as an event that’s been either exaggerated or completely made up. And the much larger (and right now far more threatening) white supremacist culture constantly affirms that slavery happened too long ago to be relevant, while blocking out the militarized police assault on black and brown people that continues to this day.

Americans have had the recent past presented to them dishonestly for a long time now. With the takeover of the military industrial complex in the 1930’s and 40’s, the government has started omitting the realities of modern imperialism from school textbooks. This purging of history has since gotten worse with the rise in private schools and corporate-run education, which have especially taken place in the lower-class public schools that are most desperate for funds. The corporate consolidation of U.S. media and the rise of CIA psy ops have reinforced this trend.
