18h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 16 OCTOBER 2013: It would be hard to guess, as Your Correspondent is posting these comments to Teh Innerwebz, as to whether Real America (as opposed to the prolefeed simulation that conservative prolefeeders love pushing under that appellation) will finally be seeing the end of the economy-threatening madness otherwise known as the Federal Government Shutdown and the debt ceiling being breached (with risk of serious socioeconomic harm), but you have to wonder, reader, what sort of compelled the "Tea Party"-dominant House of Reprehensibles to start recognising that their exercises in stalling the great government and socioeconomic paradigm of the United States were going nowhere and quickly.

And making things potentially embarrassing all the more is news of Gross Moral Turpitude by a member of the "Tea Party" delegation before the shutdown vote, which itself ought raise questions of ethics and morals among "Tea Party" types generally (never mind where this, for the moment, is but an isolated case among an element as saw much support from the Christian Right element hoping such would call out of abeyance apartheid South Africa's mantle as God's Own Country).

But then again, maybe it was time to start asking whether such who are cutting off welfare benefits for those in need and cannot otherwise find work (mostly because of a legacy of RepubliKKKan policies encouraging the offshoring of cheap unskilled jobs "for tax reasons", thus leaving as the only decent jobs for the otherwise unemployable out there scam offers in the "Five Reports letter" vein) are essentially telling the targeted, as per the Afrikaans, 'n Volk red homself ("a people rescues itself"); i.e., that the Lower Classes need to turn to themselves all the more, and draw upon its own strengths, resources and tools in order to best empower themselves off what Congresslady Michelle Bachmann (GOP/MN) called "the crack cocaine of dependency" and into a "healthy respect" for Industry, Self-Reliance, Personal Responsibility, Thrift (preferably based on Cash Economy) and A Wholesome and Simple Home Life.

Further reinforced by the Guiding Doctrine of the Juche Idea out of North Korea, holding that "Man is the Master of Everything, and decides Everything" to, in essence, imply that the State has done all they could for them, and that they need to turn all the more to themselves and their own kind. Which, so this thinking seems to assume, can best be accomplished through a "spontaneous, mighty, people-centred, Christian Nationalist movement" of mutual self-help based on the Reddingsdaadbond (RDB; "Rescue Deed Union") movement in the early years of apartheid South Africa as sought to save the Afrikaner Volk from the enslavement of "poor whiteism" which, in the minds of Afrikaner Nationalists as launched the RDB as part of a greater Afrikaner Ekonomesie Beweging ("Afrikaner Economic Movement") in the late 1930's, the British colonial regime in South Africa reduced the Afrikaner, forever expected to see themselves as God's Chosen People in Africa, to suffering. (As a matter of fact, 'n Volk red homself would be the RDB's motto until it was wound up in 1957, encapsulating its mission of economically and culturally empowering the Afrikaner masses and developing an Afrikaner ethno-national identity.)

Absent any sort of mass movement emerging among conservative-inclined types to empower the AmeriKKKan Lower Classes according to the RDB model, targeting especially the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKa" as lacks any viable opportunities for socioeconomic empowerment, might I be the first to push for promoting cooperative societies according to the Raiffeisen model, as per Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen (German; 1818-1888), as an agency of uplifting the Lower Classes. (In fact, it's been suggested that Herr Raiffeisen saw in his cooperative model Christian Duty and Love made manifest; witness this article from a few years back via the IRU Courier, the occasional gazetta of the Cologne-based International Raiffeisen Union as promotes Raiffeisen's legacy and cooperative principles the world over.)

Especially so where such cooperatives (particularly on a retailing model) emphasise goods which itself emphasises the practical and utilitarian over mere vanity, with value for money ensuing in the long run. Which, in and of itself, can wean the Lower Classes off the enslaving crack cocaine of Walmart and dollar stores as seem to be their only viable retail options under current socioeconomic models.

So what prevents the Real American from so thinking about putting words into action thus?
