“¿América: Estados Confederados o Estados Unidos?”
(America: Confederate States or United States?)
“Speak little, pray much, go onward always, let passing things pass by, holding only onto what is eternal…”-St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, RSCJ
“You may dazzle the mind with a thousand brilliant discoveries of natural science; you may open new worlds of knowledge which were never dreamed of before; yet, if you have not developed in the soul of the pupil strong habits of virtue which will sustain her in her struggle of life, you have not educated her, but only put in her hand a powerful instrument of self-destruction.”-St. Rose Philippine Duchesne, RSCJ
Continuing where we last left off at Part I, I must ask: What do Slaves and Mercenaries have in common? The Freedom-Security Dialectic: Slaves eventually clamor for Freedom by backstabbing their Paymasters; Mercenaries eventually clamor for Security by backstabbing their Paymasters. This was fate that befell the Ancient Romans at the hands of these Germanic tribes, eventually became the same European peoples of our 21st century Reality. Thanks to The Work-Standard and Hamiltonian Federalist Socialism in particular, there is no doubt in my mind that “Critical Race Theory” and “Great Replacement Theory” both share the same primordial point of origin that only the Federalist Party knows: a Caribbean Slave Revolt–the Haitian Revolution. Remember, Alexander Hamilton was never born in the US; he was born in the Caribbean, which explains his time-tested advocacy of Florida becoming a US State.
The fact that a Slave Revolt once happened in Haiti is irrelevant; the Jeffersonian Faction (Bipartisans), Madisonian Faction (Democrats) and Monroean Faction (Republicans) are constantly changing the narratives to evade detection. With the Liberalization of Young Minds, the result is the reconditioning whole nations into docile, subservient, complacent Debt-Slaves and Kapital-Slaves. What the Democratic-Republican Party needs are three components:
- Historical Events being perceived by and conveyed to the American people as a Tragedy (“What is happening?”). I have already explained this component in Part I and “Death of Bretton Woods as ‘Constitutional Crisis?.’”
- Appropriate Targets (“Who caused this Tragedy?”) who must be subjected to the wrath of the American people. The American people as a Totality is to be framed as the Scapegoat. Roman Catholics, Mormons, Prussians, Russians, Frenchmen, Dutchmen, Spaniards, Greeks, Italians, Irishmen, Vietnamese, Koreans, Chinese, Japanese, Mexicans, Africans (South African Boers and African Americans), Native Americans, Arabs, Iranians, Turks, LGBTs, Muslims, Jews, Appalachians, Californians, Texans, New Yorkers, Baby Boomers, Millennials, etcetera.
- Proper Pretexts (“How did the Target commit the Tragedy?”). If the Democratic-Party inside of Congress have all three components, they can successfully cook up Carl Schmitt’s famous State of National Emergency. It is then possible for them to rescind Habeas Corpus, give the President of the United States access to emergency wartime powers in peacetime, and pretty much ditch the US Constitution. Thanks to Donald Trump, I now know that the Democratic-Republican Party, despite implementing dozens of National Emergencies since 1979, has yet to bare it all for the American people and show everyone on Earth their naked Totalitarianism. Between Coronavirus Pandemic, 2020 Presidential Election, and whatever happened in the afternoon of January 6, 2021, anything goes for the Democratic-Republican Party under the right circumstances.
And even if the American people are unconsciously aware of America being in a State of National Emergency since 1979, the existential fears and anxieties of previous generations have been passed down across centuries as Genetic Memories in the American Collective Unconsciousness. It is precisely the Collective Unconsciousness that separates the psychological and psychic conditions of everyday Americans from those of the Confederados (who have spent the centuries since the Civil War integrating themselves into the Brazilian Collective Unconsciousness). Thus, the Authentic Insecurity of imaginary “Slave Revolts” can be readily exploited by the Democratic-Republican Party to impose Authentic Unfreedom on the American people without their foreknowledge or even their consent.
This phenomenon deserves the fitting taxonomy of Círculo Dorado because what I had learned about the Antebellum South in Conservatives against Capitalism also reminds me of those cloak-and-dagger plots that went on in late 20th century Latin America (q.v. Pinochet’s Chile, Brazilian Military Dictatorship, Noriega’s Panama, Columbia’s Pablo Escobar, Argentina’s Dirty War and so forth). What I am essentially describing is something akin to a metaphysical landmine or sea mine. Investigating Contemporary Events are like navigating the minefield without getting the treads of an MAFV (Miniaturized Armored Fighting Vehicle) blown off or the hull of a U-Boat shredded like the Costa Concordia.
A Minesweeper prowling around the open waters for sea mines is very similar to sweeping the nearby coastal road behind the beach for landmines with a Mine Detector. One must travel lightly and move slowly, listening carefully to the pings of Círculo Dorado. The Implicit Intent of including “Critical Race Theory” and “Great Replacement Theory” as potential Círculo Dorado are informed by US History and the more recent 2019 Federal Government Shutdown. Here, the Cassandra Coefficient becomes the “Mine Detector,” The Work-Standard a “Mine Clearance Kit.”
“In the United States, the shift from post-1945 democratic pluralism to technocratic Neoliberalism was fostered from the 1960s onward by an alliance of the white overclass with African Americans and other racial minority groups. The result was a backlash by white working-class voters, not only against nonwhites who were seen as competitors for jobs and housing, but also against the alien cultural liberalism of white ‘gentry liberals.’ The backlash in the North was particularly intense among ‘white ethnics’—first-, second-, and third-generation white immigrants like Irish, German, Italian, and Polish Americans, many of them Catholic. The disproportionately working-class white ethnics now found themselves defined as bigots by the same White Anglo-Saxon Protestant (WASP) elites who until recently had imposed quotas on Jews and Catholics in their Ivy League universities, but who were now posing as the virtuous, enlightened champions of civil rights.-Michael Lind, The New Class War: Saving Democracy From the [Liberal Capitalists], ca. 2016
This toxic mix of black aspiration, white ethnic backlash, and WASP condescension provided a ripe habitat for demagogues, many of them old-school Democrats like Frank Rizzo, mayor of Philadelphia, Sam Yorty, mayor of Los Angeles, and Mario Angelo Procaccino, failed mayoral candidate in New York. These populist big-city mayors or candidates in the second half of the twentieth century combined appeals to working-class grievances and resentments with folksy language and feuds with the metropolitan press, a pattern practiced, in different ways, by later New York City mayors Ed Koch, a Democrat, and Rudy Giuliani, a Republican.
In its ‘Against Trump’ issue of January 22, 2016, the editors of National Review mocked the ‘funky outer-borough accents’ shared by Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. Indeed, Trump, a ‘white ethnic’ from Queens with German and Scots ancestors, with his support in the US industrial states where working-class non-British European-Americans are concentrated, is ethnically different from most of his predecessors in the White House, whose ancestors were proportionately far more British American. Traits which seem outlandish in a US president would not have seemed so if Trump had been elected mayor of New York. Donald Trump was not Der Führer. He was Da Mayor of America.”
The University of Virginia (Jeffersonian Faction) recently conducted a statistical survey with “Project Home Fire” during Oktoberfest. Its Intent was to gauge the contemporary American fears and anxieties of an impending “civil war” between the Democrats (Madisonian Faction) and the Republicans (Monroean Faction). It verifies my conclusions that “Traps Aren’t Gay” because:
Social-Democracy = Welfare Capitalism + Workfare Socialism
Social-Democracy ≠ Fascism
Additionally, it has also provided additional context to the deconstructed anecdotal evidence that I have from Gore Vidal:
“[Professor] Frank [had once] recalled my idle remark some years ago: ‘Never pass up the opportunity to have sex or appear on television.’ Advice I would never give today in the Age of AIDS and its television equivalent Fox News.”-Gore Vidal, Point to Point Navigation, ca. 2006
True to the Cult of Personality around Thomas Jefferson on the campus of UVA and at the public schools, the Survey Results are rife with Social-Democracy, this Hypersexualized Fascism forewarned by Benito Mussolini and Che Guevara:
— Majorities of Trump and Biden voters express support for several elements of the bipartisan infrastructure and reconciliation bills being debated in Congress, but there are marked differences in their levels of support. (see Table 1 below)
— Majorities — often large majorities — of both Biden and Trump voters express some form of distrust for voters, elected officials, and media sources they associate with the other side. A strong majority of Trump voters see no real difference between Democrats and socialists (!) and a majority of Biden voters at least somewhat agree that there is no real difference between Republicans and fascists (!). (see Table 2 below)
— Significant numbers of both Trump and Biden voters show a willingness to consider violating democratic tendencies and norms if needed to serve their priorities (!). Roughly 2 in 10 Trump and Biden voters strongly agree it would be better if a “President could take needed actions without being constrained by Congress or courts,” and roughly 4 in 10 (41%) of Biden and half (52%) of Trump voters at least somewhat agree that it’s time to split the country, favoring blue/red states seceding from the union(!). (see Table 3 below)
What this survey supports are the conclusions that I had between December 2018 and January 2019 about the 2018-2019 Federal Government Shutdown. Did Trump make the right decision to try and build that wall along the US-Mexico Border? Or did Trump was building that wall in the wrong location? America needs a Metaphysical Wall, not a Physical Wall, against the worst impulses of the Liberalization of Young Minds. This Metaphysical Wall must be capable of helping all American Nationalist youths and American Socialist youths reject all the lies and falsehoods that are being thrown in their directions by the Madisonians and Monroeans respectively. Millennials and Generation Z are facing the same fate as the Generation X and Baby Boomers because all four generations are Americans of the same Union. For in the true Federalist American Union, the Federal government exists beyond Good and Evil. As I had forewarned in “Economic History Case Studies: The 9/11 Origins of Consumer Patriotism, Surveillance Capitalism and Lung Masturbation (2001-2021)”:
Today, I have grown to realize that very little information online can be salvaged into something more coherent because insightful, prescient, practical and timeless wisdom do not exist on the Internet. That has to be found offline, away from the PCs, tablets, and smartphones. There is no way for young people, especially those still searching on their smartphones and tablets, to learn this from their peers, let alone their own elders. It has to be learned at a personal level.
The best historical analogy, given my research and personal experiences, would have to be those controversial passages in Der Arbeiter. I am of course referring to what Ernst Jünger had written he was describing the social interactions between the ‘Socialist youths’ and the ‘Nationalist youths.’ When that book was published in 1932, these two German youth groups adopted some strange subcultural Labels for themselves, distorting the true Essence of who they really are as young people. In the Americanized Collective Consciousness of Weimar Germany, peer pressure and social conformity had forced the Socialist youths to become ‘Fascists’ and the Nationalist youths to become ‘Communists.’ Yes, that was literally what was going on in those days because for reasons that I never fully understood, the language throughout Der Arbeiter was always cryptic.
In any case, other youths chose to conduct themselves under such vague Labels like “National Bolshevism” (no relation to National Communism) and “National Socialism” (no relation to Pan-Germanic Socialism), trying desperately to help their classmates and peers cast aside their superficial differences and find real common ground. After all, they were all part of the same generation coming of age in the midst of the Great Depression. Therein lies the Ethical Dilemma I had recently elaborated in “Third Place: Student Cooperatives and the 600-Ship Navy (Pt. II of II)” and brought to the attention of another Blog in “Only a God Can Save Us.”
“Philosophy will not be able to effect an immediate transformation of the present condition of the world. This is not only true of Philosophy, but of all merely human thought and endeavor. Only a God can save us. The sole possibility that is left for us is to prepare a sort of readiness, through thinking and poeticizing, for the appearance of the God or for the absence of the God in the time of foundering for in the face of the God who is absent, we founder. Only a God Can Save Us.”
Death is an eternal sleep. Our actions in Life will be judged by somebody else besides me. I still sense the feelings of desperation and helplessness of these youths who tried to steer the German Reich on a different course than the one that actually happened in history. Without hope or rescue, they accepted the fate of the German-speaking world and until death relieved them. It reminds me of the same feelings of desperation and helplessness that I saw in those adults trapped in the upper floors of the Twin Towers. Without hope or rescue, they plunged out of windows and spent their final moments in midair until death relieved them.”
In a twist of fate, our American Nationalist youths and American Socialist youths are literally in the same Position as their counterparts from Weimar Germany. There were capable of working together in Occupy Wall Street and helping Trump and Sanders challenge the Democratic-Republican Party. Therefore, they must learn to overcome their differences and work together. Only the Spirit of Hamiltonian Federalism and Pure Socialism–Hamiltonian Federalist Socialism–shall make America great Again and keep America great.
There have always been selfish demagogues and opportunists seeking to lead the youths astray. That was a lesson I had learned by heart from the Patron Saints of Catholic Education, intercessory prayers and all. These Jeffersonians, Trotskyists and Hitlerists who emerged in Charlottesville in 2017 neither respected our values nor do they intend to contribute anything eternal and everlasting in the Total Educational Effort. They are always working tirelessly to derail any and all attempts at actually realizing our Unity of Opposites between Hamiltonian Federalism and Pure Socialism. There is an Ethical Way to Combine Nationalism and Socialism and an Unethical Way to Combine Nationalism and Socialism. Always stick to the Ethical Way and always reject the Unethical Way, otherwise America will suffer the same fates that befell Imperial Japan and the German Reich.
Furthermore, they must know the Truth because only the Truth will set us free from Neoliberalism. Our Nationalist youths and Socialist youths are never going to work together if nobody bothers to inform them that the Democratic-Republican Party wants them to be deceived, misdirected, manipulated, and distracted with the obvious Intent of divide and conquer so that both youth groups become weak, lame and incapable of anything greater than their mortal selves. Of course, for anyone who is still not convinced, why should they support the Federalist Party’s condemnations of the so-called “Great Replacement Theory” and the so-called “Critical Race Theory” as being Un-American?
Both the “Great Replacement Theory” and the “Critical Race Theory” are the two halves of the real Institutional Racism in America which professes that people have no Souls, only Minds and Bodies. The Soul of an Individual is what binds them to a People’s Community in America. And contrary to Jeffersonian propaganda, a People’s Community will never be identified by their Minds or their Bodies.
For instance, the FBI Special Counsel who wrote that “Mueller Report,” Robert Müller, is not a “White American” but an American Prussian. Anyone who says otherwise is accusing me of Perjury in front of the sitting Federal judge and jury at the Federal Court. Of course Müller has his faults as an Individual’s, but it is his Soul that binds him to his vocational civil service for the Federalist American Union as a shining example of those true Prussians from my childhood (not to mention my readings of Prussianism and Socialism). And yes, I have in fact read the “Mueller Report” when it became publicly available in March 2019.
Nothing will prevent me from telling the Federal judge and jury that there was no “White America” in US History and there is no point for the Union to be creating one. It is a dangerous absurdity because its realization was made possible at the same time as the Death of Bretton Woods. As Orson Welles pointed out back in the 1970s, we have the Technology to literally manufacture soulless white people in tubes full of amniotic fluid on an industrial scale. Who in their right mind would want to see parentless children being conceived in that manner?
The American Essence knows only the European People’s Communities. There were and still are European People’s Communities of Prussians and Englishmen, Austrians and Ukrainians, Frenchmen, Italians, Spaniards, Portuguese, Irishmen, Dutchmen, Polish, Czechs, Hungarians, Canadians and forth. The Democratic-Republican Party refuses to let European-Americans realize that the emerging “White Minority” is a grotesque distortion of the growing consensus in the United States Census Bureau that the Federal government should the racial diversity of the many European People’s Communities. They were the ones who gave me the invaluable and priceless item in my possession: the Catholic education that created The Work-Standard out of nothing. Where else in America am I going to find the values that I saw during the Year of the Prussian?
“‘It is extraordinary that Prussia has been forgotten and allowed to fall into disrepute. Prussian Modesty, State Service, [Fiscal] Discipline and [Spendthrift] – these are all Values on which a Community can be based. I am happy that [The Prussian Year Book: An Almanac, Preussen 2001] will remind us of these fruitful traditions in our history – the knowledge of which can be taken as a basis for the future of Europe.’”
“Wahrheit Macht Frei (Truth Will Set Us Free)!”
“Allein die göttliche Wahrheit macht frei. Die Ursache für den Widerstand gegen die Wahrheit” (The Truth Alone Will Set You Free. The Cause of Resisting the Truth).-John 8:31-38, New American Bible Revised Edition (NABRE)
Jesus then said to those Jews who believed in him, ‘If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.‘”
They answered him, “We are descendants of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How can you say, ‘You will become free’?
Jesus answered them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin. A slave does not remain in a household forever, but a son always remains. So if a son frees you, then you will truly be free. I know that you are descendants of Abraham. But you are trying to kill me, because my word has no room among you. I tell you what I have seen in the Father’s presence; then do what you have heard from the Father.”
There are plenty of opportunities for Círculo Dorado to be found and others are best-served as Decoys, otherwise known as “Conspiracy Theories.” Special designation symbols are needed in order to separate the decoys and the live ones because, as stated earlier, the most proper analogy to comprehend something as metaphysical Círculo Dorado is to imagine navigating an open field laden with landmines or an open waterway laden with sea mines.
For this reason, I will mark the Lives with “(⇌)” and the Decoys with “(→)”. Note that the following is a non-exhaustive list of historical events between the late 19th and late 20th centuries. Use the Cassandra Coefficient and The Work-Standard as a means by which to determine potential opportunities for finding Círculo Dorado.

Not every Círculo Dorado is going to be found in wartime or during periods of turmoil and upheaval. As that above list demonstrates, the economic and financial crises of Neoliberalism in peacetime offer enough Plausible Deniability to conceal them. Most people lack the interest and the time to understand how their own economy and financial system should function under normal peacetime conditions. What they have been told by university professors are all “theories and speculations” or parlor games. I mean, how many Japanese Freeters have literally died of Burnout (“Death-by-Overwork”) or are stuck in the middle of a metaphysical minefield since the Lost Decades of the 1990s as Hikikomori? If the Japanese Yen was pegged to the Work-Standard today, it would would become worthless tomorrow after three decades of Social-Democratic policies by the LDP (Liberal Democratic Party).
For the Democratic-Republican Party, they had chosen Kapital-Slavery and Debt-Slavery during the Gilded and Progressive Eras of US History, always laying their Círculo Dorado first as “Domestic Policy” before proceeding to reapply them elsewhere as “Foreign Policy” and vice versa as in the cases of Woodrow Wilson (Palmer Raids and US Intervention in Soviet Union) and Franklin Delano Roosevelt (q.v. Social-Democracy, Bretton Woods, Great Recession). The constitutional precedent was already perfected when Jimmy Carter later signed Executive Order 12170 in 1979, allowing the longest National Emergency in US History to become not only possible but inevitable.
