Yes great stuff. People here are a tiny bit deluted on this. Though many are at least honest enough to know the alternative will really really suck at least for a while.

There is no social contract. Some government systems are better than others. One important question is is the system working as advertised? Ours has left that so long ago.

Governments never really have legitimacy but they have some consent and can protect many liberties at the expense of others. What they need is for us to stay addicted to things like political bullshit. I doubt efforts to fix things will work but i don't want to discourage it either. Just be honest about it but likely we all need to do our part and all deny the legitimacy of this regime. Likely using slogans "there's no for the people by people" will help.

OP is a bit of a sooner and accepts some labeling of parallel societies from the left like redneck this or that.

Yes but this site has done little to nothing to organize / network people irl. There's great info for here but not even much application for that in real life. It's like a news aggregator with a great comments section. Make the rest of your parallel society elsewhere. This site isn't it.

I could go on for a while about Trump's faults, issues with democracy and issues with monarchy and I'd still think the USA would be better in Trump were king.

There's plenty of checks and balances on kings.

One of these days the left will cross the line and Trump will quit playing these democracy bullshit games and be honest about how fucked we are which in turn will unfuck us and destroy the left for good.

The left needs us addicted to this stupid political ping pong until one day they push too hard and we'll all quit lying to ourselves.

Andrew Yang is starting a new political party. It's likely this party will get used by democrats and he's their willing tool. Still if he or someone he knows runs for president under this party the FBI can raid them under false pretenses so it's best he speak up against this before 2024. Anyone with a brain understands that at anytime the FBI can raid anyone for an anything. This is why this matters and be why the left is so dumb for not seeing it. None of us are safe from the regime.

I mean they might be infighting. That could be true but i don't think it'll lead to a collapse in any significant way. So while they're may be some issues it's way overblown here.

There's an important message within this. I'm not saying El Salvador is moral or immoral. When the USA or other powerful nations are moral other nations have to at least pretend to be moral. There's no need for that pretense at all anymore. Yet the USA will keep screaming its platitudes but no one but the choir will listen.
