I do think its important to remember that America is an authoritarian collectivist culture, born out of authoritarian terrorism. The American rebels faced the same problem as the Vietcong. They were completely outclassed in conventional military, so they used their ability to inflict authoritarian terror over the civilian population and alliances with authoritarian empires to balance the conflict.
We see this authoritarian collectivism in the way states banned abolitionist literature, we see it in the whole enforcement of the slave system, anyone who claims you can have slavery without authoritarian collectivism is either a liar or a retard. This is part of the reason for the Somerset v Stewart decision. It wasn't just about Liberal beedin hearts concerned for the welfare of racially dark skinned Africans, but recognition that we didn't want slavery creeping into Britain with the corrupt authoritarian collectivism that inevitably comes with it.
We see authoritarian collectivism in the murder of Joseph Smith, and the refusal to admit Utah as a state until they totally submitted to the rest of the Americas cultural values. the way the Confederacy reduced States rights, Lincoln's conscription with the opt out for rich people. We see it in the whole Jim Crow set up and its lynching culture. We see it the Prohibition saga. We saw it at Kent State. We saw it the mass support for torture and incarceration without trial after 9/11. We see it in the hysteria over flag burning and people taking the knee when the national anthem is played at football matches. I don't support BLM, but I most certainly support anyone who resists America's culture of collectivist authoritarian flag worship.
The violent intolerant, woke lynch mob culture of America's Liberal Universities is entirely with the traditional American way, its just that the totems they are defending have changed.
While I support the impeachment of Salvador Allende, no executive Presidencies, proportional representation and short fixed term parliaments would have been preferable.
