Every time in history we see an increase in inequality we also see an increase in Authoritarianism.

Authoritarianism is on the rise globally. E.g. Poland, Turkmenistan, Brazil, Hungary, Philipines, Russia, United States

How is trump authoritarian?

So far trump has lowered taxes (increased economic freedom to the people) ended 1 war and de-escalated a major potential nuclear showdown. Wat a monster!

Well, as a teacher you would know every time the kids turn into brats.


If what you mean is that authoritarianism has it's place in the family (with children) or in the classroom (classroom management of kids under15) then you have a point.

But not sure what that has to do with journalists not being able to speak truth to power. (we're not there yet - but too many people wish we were - when every criticism of the all time most criticism worthy President is fake news )

It might be economic freedom for some now, but I'm pretty sure that $1.4 trillion deficits in what is supposed to be the best growth times in a long time, is more like economic shackles of epic proportions for hundreds of millions of people in the not so distant future.

Why is Trump authoritarian ?

* Look at the number of his appointees (Cabinet Secretaries ) who have left because they did not get along with Trump and his policies. Trump runs on guts and Fox news, neither of which is very comforting. Trump's guts have resulted in many bankruptcies, upteen lawsuits and so many investigations.

* He has no regard for laws and is ready to break them at any time ( remember he could shoot anyone on Fifth Avenue and have no consequences) .

* He was ready to reject the election result unless he won . He still questions when his candidates lose . The only valid case of voter fraud is ia Republican in NC.

* His and his followers assertion that his version of reality is the only legitimate one, and that all others are ‘fake'



*

Are you listening to Rachel Maddow again? We're already touched on that John Kelly specifically said Trump gets tons of info before making decisions, you might not like the decision, but he DOESN'T make them in a vacuum.

Tim Aurora says

Oh Tim, turn off CNN... Trump has had 4 bankruptcies and has over 500 business enterprises. That's a 99% success rate. Stop believing what you're hearing.

Having tons of businesses usually leads to disagreements. Try running a business sometime, you'll learn wonders.

Marcus said that in sarcasm.

All authoritarians exhibit the attributes described in the OP.

A list of all authoritarians would include Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, Hitler, Mussolini, Putin, Orbán in Hungary, Duterte in Philippines, Berdymukhamedov in Turkmenistan, Bolsonaro in Brazil, AND Trump in America who is quoted as saying "I'm going to bomb the shit out of them, I don't care, I don't care," and "I'd like to punch him in the face," and "Gitmo we're keeping that open and we're going to load it up with a lot of bad dudes," and "torture works, believe me it works ok?"

Trump campaigning in Michigan toys with the idea of killing journalists that he hates while on microphone at the podium and the crowd cheers wildly. Trump gave the Pentagon marching orders to conduct a grand military parade. Trump has done more to limit media coverage than any president before him.

THESE ARE ALL THINGS OUR PRESIDENT SAID WHILE CONDUCTING RALLYS MOSTLY AND WERE RECEIVED BY WILD CHEERS AND CHANTING

You see?

The authoritarian persona may be the FAVORITE aspect Trump's supporters love the most about him.

AFTER ALL, WE HAVE GREAT ENEMIES TO FEAR BOTH WITHOUT AND WITHIN.

Trump's speaking out to delegitimize the elections is a sign that he is testing the limits of possible authority that he might grab.

Oliver is right, authoritarians use grand shows of strength to legitimize themselves and reflect power onto themselves personally.

Inequality is great and rampant globally and the authoritarians are coming out from under the rocks all over the western world it seems like they are going to save us commoners from our oligarchs ... supposedly.

Anyway they are certainly telling people the things they have been hoping to hear. It's just that our pain makes us possibly easy to manipulate with strong man theatrics and immersive disinformation propaganda.

It might be too fucking obvious what we are all dying to have someone in power say to us all.

Eh?

That he has ruined the Mainstream International Corporate Media forever.

They thought his Presidency would re-establish their power with 24-7-365 bashing ending in rapid impeachment or resignation on behalf of their owners, the neoliberal 0.1% class. Despite 90% negative coverage, much of it over the top Russian Conspiracy Theories and Gender-Race Rants over almost non-existent "White Supremacists", Trump still enjoys approval in the 40s, not much different than Obama who received overwhelmingly positive and non-critical coverage.

This is why they go after social media.

There’s billionaires who want to build things and erect glass and steel monuments to themselves (like Trump). These people want to be adored by the masses for being rich and for doing great things. They want people to want to be them.

Then there are billionaires who crave power and control. These are men like Soros who mess with politics and attempt to influence popular opinion with their media corporations. They push for authoritarian policies and restrictive laws in the name of order and “a better society.” They want people to be “properly motivated” to be good little servants who will work hard and show up every day and offer the proper respect to their betters. They achieve this by pushing inequality to the MAXIMUM, pushing prices of necessities as high as possible, and fencing the public in with onerous laws which are all too easy to inadvertently break. We see this with the drug war, failed drug policies for decades that even now they aren’t willing to change. We see this with an exploding prisoner population, the highest in the known world! Private prisons get around the 13th Ammendment (abolished slavery) on a technicality, and put millions of captives to practically unpaid work.

Which type of billionaire would you rather have in charge? The self-aggrandizing narcissist or the power-hungry slaveholder?
Those are your only choices.

Governer-elect Pritzker is about as void of interesting thought as someone can be, but hes rich enough to buy an election.

Isn't Trump a heir . His net worth ( who knows what it is ) is no more than his inheritance put in stock market. That after many bankruptcies, upteen money laundering and many more lawsuits .

i would rate your response mostly fake news. He was a millionaire heir who multiplied his fortunes many hundred times, at a minimum. Look at the relative wealth of his siblings if you want to pretend like he hasnt accomplished anything.

With a guy like Trump in office we can jump to dictatorship EXACTLY like Germany did in the 1930s.

A national emergency is all it takes. Right? History has shown us all that over and over with all the false flag regime changes and war-incidents that come out years or decades later.

Trump would already need the oligarchs behind him and the country would be flipped into a dictatorship, hell, Trump already acts like he's got the powers of an autocrat.

We're lucky that his administration is so disorganized and shorthanded or we'd really be fucked. (see above)

And Trump is profiting from his position like no president in history and intends to push it for all it's worth. You gotta see that between the lines with the hotels, the brands, the patent enforcement, the ties to Russian steel mills, etc.

If we all lay down for this it promises to be the wildest ride in the history of the planet. AND THEY DO NEED US TO LAY DOWN FOR ALL OF THIS. That's why they made Fox News, Sinclair networks TV, Limbaugh and all the other talk radio antagonists.

Just think of the potential scope of violence and oppression: nukes, outer space, nano weapons, genetically modified creatures, intelligent network systems, autonomous stealth weapons, integrated network enforcement, surveillance and control.

Easy to imagine that future world where the Terminator came from only much worse. After all, the movie was overly obsessed on the subject of machines. There are so many other weapons and curses that can be brought to bear against a completely neutralized compliant people with no control whatsoever over what laws get enacted.

That is what Trump says and we know how truthful he is. After his tangled web of 500 LLC's are sorted through it would not shock me if he had less net worth than what he inherited. No one knows (maybe Mueller), but why take the word of a "The self-aggrandizing narcissist "?

Actually I don’t like Fox News for the same reason I listed. Murdoch is not a friend to America, but a globalist businessman with an agenda. His station was firmly anti-Trump until they realized they would have no audience at all unless they embraced the President. Which they did but still attempt to sway policy towards endless war and globalist interests.
I don’t like Fox.

This is also just stupid. Please recall that in Weimar Germany, they first limited Jews from influential positions then eventually just put straight Nazi's or public nazi sympathizers in every position of influence including all govt positions, educators at every level, and anyone involved w media (book burning anyone?)

Unless the left wants to recast their fascist support for Trump, there is zero chance he could ever be an authoritarian even if he wanted to.
