00h UTC; SATURDAY, 4 AUGUST 2012: As if yesterday's essay taking issue with the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKan" idealised and held up for the worst sort of emulation by conservative prolefeeders wasn't exactly good enough for you, gentle readers, perhaps it was time to follow up (as it were) by taking issue with the ideal of the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKa" espoused by these same prolefeed types as the Last Hope and Rescue for Our Dear Lovely Nation.

Especially because this "REAL AmeriKKKa"--for the most part traditionally small-town and rural--for all the prolefeeders insist on epitomising as the Acme and Fountainhead of Traditional Values and Idealism as are otherwise in Clear and Present Danger by Dark Forces as operate from within and without, subscribes to the same rather complacently hard-wired notions and mindsets which Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951) satirised so splendidly in his breakaway 1920 novel Main Street, the points of which were enough to have him recognised as among the Minnesota 150 by the Minnesota Historical Society when Minnesota's Sesquicentenary was observed in 2008.

Said mindsets actually hindering any serious prospects for serious socioeconomic empowerment as translates into jobs creation, payrolls, purchasing power and, in its turn, prosperity; largely out of a fear that such could "irrevocably violate the established Natural Order" as supposedly sustained the town just fine all this time. The which, essentially, enslaves Main Street all the more to the "Dark Forces" as are the subject of much prolefeed tending to conservative paranoia.

Which, in their turn, helps stoke all manner of enhanced latent insular nativism, racism, anti-Semitism and gross prejudice while still insisting on a mindset encapsulated in the Afrikaner proverb 'n Volk red homself ("a people rescues itself")--a mindset practically on a par, methinks, with the quest of the unlettered and ignorant sharecropper Ty-Ty Walden in Erskine Caldwell's God's Little Acre for that one chance at fortune which he would offer unto God in His Glory, unaware of what it was doing unto his children all the while.

Such contempt, as it were, translating into crass depopulation as young people, especially high-school graduates, are forced to move unto the city to find work, even after repeated conditioning reeking of paranoia about the Clear and Present Risk of Moral Danger ensuing thereby, particularly the Risk of Exploitation by the Weird and Unwholesome Elements (cf. Carrie Meeber's exploitation in Chicago at the hands and in the mind of Paul Drouhet in Theodore Dreiser's Sister Carrie).

And anyone who tries to seek out any sort of motivation to allow such specimens of "REAL AmeriKKKa" to realise their true potential, like poor Cinderella, is somehow to be regarded as a "dangerous parasite***out to undermine and sell out the community," some of the more conservative circles thereof perhaps seeking to use the mental-hygiene laws as a preemptive measure (perhaps to circumvent the restrictions on SLAPP lawsuits, no?) with manipulated evidence and testimony Fox News is sure to lap up in its Luscious Glory of journalistic perversion and travesty.

Thereby keeping the "REAL AmeriKKKa" beloved of conservative prolefeeders as the Last Hope and Rescue for a Nation Whose National and Sovereign Identity Hangs All the More in Clear and Present Danger of Harm and Ruin even more insular, mostly from without (witness, e.g., designs by the Postal Service to close or cut hours at Post Offices in rural areas to reduce costs, banks closing branch offices in smaller communities deemed "unprofitable" to the extent of leaving many such without hometown banking services and unwillingness on the part of larger telephone companies [AT&T, Verizon, Frontier, CenturyLink, TDS, &c.] to improve rural exchanges so that they could offer broadband Internet and cable-TV services, especially in country areas, officially claiming that such would "sap profitability").

And even more unlikely to redeem itself and realise its socioeconomic possibilities, especially considering a latent insistence prevailing therein that only ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe can be the Golden Key as opens the Magic Doors to Prosperity and Empowerment, while likewise insisting that only 'n Volk red homself. (See the doublethink you're unconsciously holding there?)

Hence, a challenge to ye so-called "REAL AmeriKKKa":

If you are so insistent, adamant even, in your hard-wired delusion and belief that only "a people rescues itself" (and that such a belief can best save "REAL AmeriKKKa" from itself), then what would preclude your seriously studying and embracing cooperativism and all that it entails, especially considering where cooperativism meshes very well with that hard-wired belief of yours in "a people rescuing itself"?

Is it fear, perhaps, that such unwittingly contains the germ of the "stoopid disease" (as in Knowledge) which can "sap the strength" of "REAL AmeriKKKa" to the point of such being the Ruin of Our Dear Lovely Nation and the Principles She Holds Deeply and Dearly?

Is it because of your somewhat groundless notion that cooperativism "leads to Socialism," if not dancing?

Is it because of your hard-wired "Here Be Dragons" mindsets and mentalities that you fear fresh ideas which could actually mean something to the "REAL AmeriKKKa" you insist is Under Threat from Dark and Sinister Forces (yet lack any credible substance therefor aside from Fox News and conservative talkback radio items repeated in the "friend-of-a-friend" [FoAF] vein)?

Is it because of--what exactly, pray?

After all, continued subscription to hard-wired complacency will only have you going nowhere all the sooner, leaving you all the more at the mercy of conservative prolefeeders who only want to use you (and the "ideal" you're expected to represent) for their own twisted and delusional prolefeed ends to the point where, if they're not careful, Jon Stewart will quickly drive coach and horses through on The Daily Show within measurable distance. And spare us your whining paranoid memes about "religious liberty and national identity being under threat" in the bargain, especially where the credible proof to those ends is lacking--and you well know it. (Hence, spare us your resorting to forgery on a par with those "Hitler Diaries" as left egg on the face of the German mass-circulation weekly Stern, which got pwned in the end after the researchers realised they got taken to the cleaners all along. And, for that manner, pathetic whining and bawling and boohoohooing that you know you set up to attract attention to yourselves with reckless and utter contempt for Reality.)

As an expression in Shakespeare's time had it (and alluded to in Henry V, IIBC), "Brag is a good dog, but Holdfast is better." Put another way, stop TALKING and start taking ACTION if you expect to see your dear lovely "REAL AmeriKKKa" mean anything for once.
