There are socialists, communists, Islamist radicals, progressives and even liberals who are supporting revolutionary activity in the Middle East, Northern Africa, America and Europe which is anti-western, anti-capitalist and anti-Israel/America. There is certainly a case to be made against the historical, merchantilist, imperialist, State capitalism mixed with socialist/welfare policies. The mixed economies of America and Europe have been a disaster in the long run -- Keynes forgot to tell his readers that we'd be alive to live with the mess after they died. The current fashion on the Left to throw all western mixed economies under the label "neo-liberalism" is an obscurantist tactic to avoid clarity regarding the battle of ideas. The battle between domination and freedom still rages, regardless what we call it today.
The Left wants to seize power through an alliance of anti-capitalist factions, even if factions which are gathering on the Left are in conflict otherwise. If the Left destroys capitalism, Americanism and constitutionalism, they have an opening for there odd coalition to seize power, but I imagine the battle between these factions will also be fierce. Underneath it all is not socialism, communism, radical Islam, ect, but, rather, elite power-seekers. There are revolutionary groups doing the hard work for the power elite, so that when chaos comes about, the New Order will form for security reasons. Factions on the Left think they will have a place at the Table of Power, buit they won't.
The New Order captains know that production is critical to keep the world going -- they simply want control of the process and all the advantages that come with central management. This network of New Order captains is wide and diverse, but when the dust settles there will be a relative handful calling the shots, with many in the rigged game assured of advantage and protection from competition.
Do we, the American people, have the ability to affect change in our nation? What is the majority position when it comes to the revolutionary Left and their anti-capitalist, anti-Americanism campaign? Historically, our political leaders have spoken for America by upholding what they thought were American principles, but, now, it's unpopular to uphold the traditional principles of liberty, equality under the rule of law, individual rights, free markets and limited government. Our principles are obscured by political correctness and a superficial multi-culturalism which praises diversity while practicing collectivism.
Yes, the Merchant State which has fostered crony capitalism deserves to be dismantled, but not by revolutionaries who will replace it with quasi-socialist tyranny. So, what do Americans really want? Decisions should be made quickly -- we're running out of time.
