"Meganomicism": Part One: A new Judeo-Christianity necessitates a new word
By Michael Moriarty
The two parts of my editorial Learning from the Top Down and a first reading of Jonah Goldberg's remarkable book, Liberal Fascism, led me to re-name what I thought I could never understand: economics.
From now on I only call family budgeting and the book-keeping of small business "economics". The rest …what they all talk about during the Wall Street section of CNN's programming, anything to do with the Fortune 500 and tales of the expert economists, such as Adam Smith and John Maynard Keynes … that is what I call "meganomics". In other words, economics means looking at money from the bottom up. Meganomics looks from the top down.
Meganomics is inspired not by corporations, but by "corporatism", which is that monetary conversation between a progressively monopolizing set of major industries such as Microsoft and Progressive federal government. Meganomics occurs during golf games between presidents and CEO's such as Bill Clinton and Bill Gates. That is Meganomics and corporatism, and these two, third millennium, novelties might very well end up ruling the world.
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal and President Lyndon Baines Johnson's Great Society were actually Meganomics in the closet, corporatism on the golf course. Now, however, Meganomics is a new empire out of the smoke-free backrooms of Washington, D. C..
Upon close examination, Bill Clinton's "Third Way" is just more Meganomics. That would not be disturbing if his wife weren't so determined to make this Third Way Meganomics a permanent way of life … world wide!
The separation of religion and state … and that of business and government … also the Constitutional checks and balances … that all is being steadily … and Progressively erased. Progressivism, the ultimate and long-term ideology behind Meganomics, has come to actually occupy major corners of Judeo-Christianity. There is Bill Clinton's "Progressive" Baptist Church, Hillary's "Progressive" Methodist Church and the "Progressive", equally pro-abortion Humanists of New York. Meganomics is an all-inclusive, totalitarian paradigm that turns business, spirituality and politics into a divinely secular trinity, a three-in-one, one-in-three God of its own.
The American Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and Jeffersonian documents insuring freedom of religion in the United States, have no relevance to Progressive, Third Way Meganomics.
Meganomics has the totalitarian goal of not allowing anything to either delay its progress or even, for that matter, anything to exist outside of Meganomics. Until this phenomenon of burgeoning Meganomics, only the Supreme Court has been able to defy and literally ignore the defining documents of the American identity, such as the human right's paragraph of the Declaration of Independence. Meganomics, under President Hillary Clinton, will become the Supreme Court's fundamental catechism. Therefore, the Third Way, Progressivism and the growing Clinton Global Empire can smother objections to its progress with increasing ease.
Meganomics has been increasingly facilitated by the international community's surrender to what they call "Globalization". The defining economic boundaries America had once placed on big business in order to protect a competitive, small business market have been erased by the daily mindset of Meganomics and corporatism now ingrained within both the CEOs of big business and the executive thinking of all major governments. Whatever happened to the original American dream? It has been swept away by the virtual religion of Meganomics.
Meganomics, as its name implies, is the megalomaniacal dream of would-be, third millennium Roman-style emperors. It appears also humble enough to make one think it is fiscally, corporately, monetarily responsible and a clearly comprehensible science, when, indeed, it entirely depends upon the painfully few personalities sitting at the top … rather like a college of wealthy cardinals perched on their imperial thrones.
The Octavian Era … the Caesarian Era … all that at one time amounted to Western Civilization will soon be replicated by, say, the Clintonian Era of the third millennium and its seemingly inevitable rule over world civilization. Please don't forget Bill Clinton's good friend, former President George H. W. Bush, promising us a Roman-style, Pax Americana. That … is Meganomics.
Not really understanding or perhaps underestimating the power of Clintonian Meganomics, the Presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama has unfortunately asked for "change" when Meganomics under the astute and expert hands of the Clintons, both Bill and Hillary, are about to reach their zenith with Hillary's minimum expectation of eight years as President of the United States. She will be there in the Oval Office to seal an eternity of Progressive Corporatism and, yes, Spiritually Clintonian Meganomics. As I said in last week's editorial, now, insofar as Obama is going to lose to Hillary, we are all Barack Obamas.
Of course, with legalized abortion as the moral indicator of where Meganomics, as a religion as well as a federalized business principle, is headed … can other legalized murder such as euthanasia and further euphemisms of increasingly unrestrained eugenics be far behind?
No. They are de rigueur … because the suffix "eu" means "improved". What is a Progressive improver … like Hillary Clinton … without the unending progress of endless improvement … and endless euphemistic lies?
If the Progressives forgive my advice, eventually Meganomics should officially accentuate its religiosity by calling itself Meganomicism. By then the number of deaths by abortion will exceed all of the executions performed by similarly totalitarian religions such as Nazism, Fascism and Communism combined.
