Is there a game plan, a credo, a document that outlines how they want to destroy US?

There's way too much coordination between the (r)epuglicons in the US senate/house, the state governors and legislators, the peeResident, the RW media, the NRA, the armed nut-jobs, etc. for there not to be some outline of how this is supposed to play out.

I don't believe at all that these are all independent acts of "patriots" or "libertarians" or "trumpistas". They are coordinated.

Someone is orchestrating this. Somewhere there is a plan - written/interactive/recorded. Is there a book that guides them? Do they have monthly video chats or do they just meet in a yacht regatta or secluded island?

What is their end-game? Where do "they" want to be in 1, 2, 5, 50 years?

How many lower-class people will be left alive? How will "they" clean up the stench?

The southern border wall is a manifestation of their fear of people flooding the US and depriving "them" of their rightful inheritance of land and power.

I'm out of tin-foil. This is a real question for me.

3. Putin and his oligarchs are just a mirror of the western plutocrats.

There are many joined forces in trying to disrupt the ability of people to have a voice in their own lives. Trans-national.

Putin and dump may be just (un)witting puppets in a larger game.

4. Nah. I don't believe that any of these people pay attention to those types of books.

Not the koran or bible. Perhaps The Art Of War or The Prince. Some are in thrall to Ayn Rand.

5. I'd go the other direction...

 

Substitute Donald for Damien and this is the game plan.

8. I had vaguely heard of James Buchanan and his influence. But I still think there is a screenplay

that outlines how to achieve Buchanan's and others goals.

All these acolytes aren't coming up with action plans on their own. They are being given tactical instructions from someone, somewhere.

10. Amazing read. Just a quick quote:

A World of Slaves

Most Americans haven’t seen what’s coming.

MacLean notes that when the Kochs’ control of the GOP kicked into high gear after the financial crisis of 2007-08, many were so stunned by the “shock-and-awe” tactics of shutting down government, destroying labor unions, and rolling back services that meet citizens’ basic necessities that few realized that many leading the charge had been trained in economics at Virginia institutions, especially George Mason University. Wasn’t it just a new, particularly vicious wave of partisan politics?

It wasn’t. MacLean convincingly illustrates that it was something far more disturbing.

MacLean is not the only scholar to sound the alarm that the country is experiencing a hostile takeover that is well on its way to radically, and perhaps permanently, altering the society. Peter Temin, former head of the MIT economics department, INET grantee, and author of The Vanishing Middle Class, as well as economist Gordon Lafer of the University of Oregon and author of The One Percent Solution, have provided eye-opening analyses of where America is headed and why. MacLean adds another dimension to this dystopian big picture, acquainting us with what has been overlooked in the capitalist right wing’s playbook.

She observes, for example, that many liberals have missed the point of strategies like privatization. Efforts to “reform” public education and Social Security are not just about a preference for the private sector over the public sector, she argues. You can wrap your head around those, even if you don’t agree. Instead, MacLean contends, the goal of these strategies is to radically alter power relations, weakening pro-public forces and enhancing the lobbying power and commitment of the corporations that take over public services and resources, thus advancing the plans to dismantle democracy and make way for a return to oligarchy. The majority will be held captive so that the wealthy can finally be free to do as they please, no matter how destructive.

MacLean argues that despite the rhetoric of Virginia school acolytes, shrinking big government is not really the point. The oligarchs require a government with tremendous new powers so that they can bypass the will of the people. This, as MacLean points out, requires greatly expanding police powers “to control the resultant popular anger.” The spreading use of pre-emption by GOP-controlled state legislatures to suppress local progressive victories such as living wage ordinances is another example of the right’s aggressive use of state power.

Could these right-wing capitalists allow private companies to fill prisons with helpless citizens—or, more profitable still, right-less undocumented immigrants? They could, and have. Might they engineer a retirement crisis by moving Americans to inadequate 401(k)s? Done. Take away the rights of consumers and workers to bring grievances to court by making them sign forced arbitration agreements? Check. Gut public education to the point where ordinary people have such bleak prospects that they have no energy to fight back? Getting it done.

Would they even refuse children clean water? Actually, yes.

MacLean notes that in Flint, Michigan, Americans got a taste of what the emerging oligarchy will look like — it tastes like poisoned water. There, the Koch-funded Mackinac Center pushed for legislation that would allow the governor to take control of communities facing emergency and put unelected managers in charge. In Flint, one such manager switched the city’s water supply to a polluted river, but the Mackinac Center’s lobbyists ensured that the law was fortified by protections against lawsuits that poisoned inhabitants might bring. Tens of thousands of children were exposed to lead, a substance known to cause serious health problems including brain damage.
