We are up against a modern fusion of wealth, corporations, non-governmental organizations, governmental agencies, the military, academia, journalism and the religious institutions. The word for this grouping is totalitarianism.
Perhaps like never before, corporations have come to be utilized as weapons against the Constitutional protections that typically protected (or were supposed to protect) the citizen from the government. ‘Terms of service’ now have supplanted the Bill of Rights of the American Constitution. I fear for nations that do not have even these rights, albeit evermore enfeebled rights.
At Hillsdale College, Charles Murray provided an idea for one corrective what is essentially lawfare, though I do not recall his using the term. Here, Victor David Hanson provides another. a call for revivified muckrakers.
