Hope and Change Precap

Every once in a while for kicks I like to see how we've done. . . . Amidst the euphoria of the "first black president" . . . I was not so hopeful.  Considering where things are at now, here is what I wrote:

"......not trying to be Mr. Wet Blanket here . . . but some immediate thoughts, only slightly tongue-in-cheek, meandered through my working consciousness yesterday . . . re anticipating or, if you will, simply pondering the trends to follow . . . .

Herein I announce: Brother Thomas' Quick Method Of Prognostication/Dialectic Trending (utilizing the lens of opposites to denote actualities . . . . heh . . . . .) "QMPDT"

Briefly, it goes like this:

--The new leader is promoted to bring a new profound UNITY .......
[so, actually there will be increased and more vociferous DIS-unity--more factions more divided and more violently so]

--He is expected to clean up "corruption" .......
[there will actually be MORE corruption and it will be more devious corrosive than ever before]

--We are told we now enter a "post-racial" era ......
[actually, race will become MORE of an issue, more divisive, more discussed, constantly in our faces and infused into every social, political and religious activity]

--We've been led to expect a decreasing militarization of the country, less warlike, even an end to hostilities with other nations ........
[look for INCREASED WAR and militarization of the country, MORE conflicts, and probably the inauguration eventually . . . soon of WWIII]

--It was proffered that the new executive would bring a lessening of terrorist activities and acts ......
[now begins the long expected terror attacks on "the homeland", plus an increase and widening field of "terroristic" activities throughout the country and world]

--Many, tired from the ongoing flim flams of the current regime, and the dire economic turmoil, voted for "hope" ......
[we enter one of the most HOPELESS times in history, with great despair, angst, anguish suicidal tendencies becoming rampant]

--Many expect now that the country can "come together" .....
[look for the country to fly apart--to break apart at the seams, with secessionist movements breaking out on several fronts and the real possibility of civil war]

--The new admin. claims to be working to save, help, revive the middle class .......
[actually, the middle class will be targeted for destruction, obliteration, destitution]

--Objectives have been laid out to "bring people up" from the "bottom", "spread the wealth"....
[look for the people on the "bottom", thus, to be crushed further and for wealth to be concentrated into even fewer and tighter hands]

--The new regime has ambitious plans to "fix" the education system and provide for wider opportunities for the masses to be "educated".......
[probably this means that in fact, education, true knowledge and actual learning will suffer greatly, and less and less people will actually receive an "education" but more than ever will be "dumbed down" and their independent thinking abilities destroyed]

--We are to expect a "fixed" and greatly expanded health care system .....
[fewer people than ever will be able to get decent health care, and what system was there, will be thrown into chaos and will greatly deteriorate]

--The new executive plans to deeply expand and buttress international poverty and disease relief .....
[poverty and disease will grow exponentially worldwide]

--We've been told that now we will get the "change we need"
[we will get the exact OPPOSITE of the "change we need"]"

Where did you get your Russian Studies degree, Brother? They did a fine job of preparing you to understand the diabolical dialectical methods of the Marxists. Lately, I've been compiling a curriculum for high school using literature as the medium for history learning. What I've found are very similar methods Marxists have used over the past 150 years or so. And they match up with what you write on here.
