I’m having an SDA Day, it would seem…
This comment from the article (about Kinder-Morgan saying the Trans-mountain pipeline might be a political fail):
just spoke to me about the nature of politics, globally, and what has happened in America in particular. It is in the context of an oil pipeline not being built and that damaging Canadian jobs and wealth:

The Hegelian Dialectic … A synopsis
Problems are a means to power for those that promote them. (Never let a good crisis go to waste – Rahm Emanuel)
A process by which virtually all change is being driven today. Significantly, it is the tool of choice used by clever politicians to manipulate others to accept change where ordinarily it would be outrightly refused.
The Hegelian Dialectic is a critical process by which “planners” contrive a problem, anticipating in advance the reaction to the purported crisis and conditioning us to change that is “essential”. Once the target audience is properly conditioned, the desired agenda is presented as the only solution. The solution is not intended to solve the problem, but rather to exacerbate (but not solve) an existing one and then to serve as the basis for a solution (translate new problem.)
When the newly inflamed difficulty reaches the planned point of a crisis, it becomes the foundation upon which arguments will be made for even more change. Hence, once begun, the process is repeated, over and over, inexorably moving toward whatever end the planners have in mind.
As the process is being driven, arguments are created both for and against certain measures of change, but all discussion is carefully controlled.
The presented solutions — each with varying levels of adornment — are then publicly “debated” by the manipulators or their minions. This is done until a perceived compromise has been reached on the best measures to take enroute to solving the crisis.
Then the outcome of the “debate” — which purportedly balances the concerns of the stakeholders with the contrived mandate to do something — is enacted as policy.
We have all been profoundly impacted by use of the Hegelian Dialectic in the effective neutralization of meaningful dialogue in the formulation of policy.
Once we understand how the Hegelian Dialectic is used by planners, we can thwart their machinations by refusing to be swayed by their sophistic fear-mongering and by standing firm against senseless (and expensive) processes.
To which I say: Thus, Trump!
He was elected exactly and deliberately to say NO! and “stand firm” against fear mongering and senseless (and expensive) processes.
He is entirely the product of The Hegelian Left pushing too far and too fast. We, the people, noticed what they were up to and said to ourselves “Somebody’s got to stand up to that crap. The Milquetoast RINOs are not getting it done and the Democrats are on side. We need to get get behind that bloody bastard obnoxious Bull Trump and point him at their china store.”
And that is why all the name calling and mud throwing and sneer and smear campaigns don’t do squat. The more folks piss and moan about him being rude, not listening to the “professional advisers”, making chaos and generally being unfit for polite Washington Cultured Meetings; the more we know he’s doing the right job!
We WANT him to be immovable.
We WANT him to insult the swamp dwellers.
We WANT him to kick some butt and take names (or just keep kicking the butt if it won’t give up a name).
We WANT him to piss off folks far and wide, in our government and in others.
See, it’s His JOB to turn over the apple cart, bust up your private parties, kill you deals, and if possible run you out of town. And if you don’t run; to gore you or just sit on your face until you suffocate. We’re FINE with that.
We stopped buying into the fear monger, and we’re working from anger.
It’s very hard to be fearful when you are burning angry.
BTW, impeach Trump, the angry turns to rage.
You think the Trump Bull is bad, wait ’till you see the Raging Bull.
