A Tale of Two Countries

a fiction... kinda'

For this we will use our imagination... let’s just say... there was no revolution... there was no civil war.

Let’s just say that our wise “elected” leaders actually put it to a vote and the citizens decided to divide the country in half - North and South, or East and West and each half would get the same amount of square miles... alright, lets just say that we divided the country East and West so that both halves have a coast... so that the equality babies don’t make a fuss... and our wise “elected” leaders gave the citizens a choice between the too halves to choose from in which to relocate for new citizenship in two new countries formed out of this old republic.

One country shall be a liberal socialist utopia where everyone is equal and safe from any harm  - be it emotional or physical, the whole of the country is a safe space for the delicate and fragile sensibilities of the obese, the gay, the trans, the green haired... everyone of every race, color and sexual orientation and identity will never need a trigger warning as free speech has been chiseled down to the politically correct “safe speech”, which is the only accepted vernacular of the land, and all truths, if found to be hurtful or going against the popular opinions of The Peoples Party is outlawed.  There is no criticism, no debate, and no alternate opinion - there is no questioning the wisdom of The Peoples Party.

In this paradise of equality abortions are paid  for by the state and are encouraged  to keep the white population down, Heterosexual unions are illegal and marriage is only permitted between homosexual men and women who are also the only ones allowed to raise children as normal families, single mothers are allowed children, of course, but the fathers of their children will not be allowed to visit or participate in the upbringing of the children as heterosexual men have been proven to be a bad influence on children - however, the men must still pay child support for these children - that is, half their currency units on their monthly units ration must go to the mothers for the children - single mothers have the option of working or not working in the new utopia.  If a single mother should later decide she no longer feels the need to be a mother she is free to deliver her children to one of the many public or privately owned child care centers where the child can be placed with a loving homosexual couple or the child may be peacefully put down so  it’s body parts can be sold to the medical industry for reuse.

Competition and free commerce have been outlawed as well and there are no  jobs available to heterosexual white men without a working permit that is only granted after proof has been given by a corporation that an individual will be hired, and the men must first take an examination of “Social Competence” to determine ones tolerance and acceptance of their “white privilege”..  Because of the equality and sensitivity laws, exercise and healthy lifestyles are also not permitted to white heterosexual males - strong fit men are seen as confident, aggressive and dominant and may have the tendencies to start thinking for themselves and seek to question the authority of The Party, therefore, all white males are medicated  from an early age in order to make them more docile and submissive and effeminate.  Only men of color are allowed to express their individuality by strengthening their bodies..

In the People’s Paradise equality is the rule among the guilty white population.  You will all have the same houses with the same sized yard, you are allowed to grow a garden but you must not  have more plants and flowers than the houses around you and you will not be allowed to make any additions or improvements to your home if they make your domain more beautiful than your neighbors - this would be insensitive and offensive, only homosexual couples, single mothers, and immigrant refugee families are allowed houses, men live in men’s housing units - which are areas similar to the old government housing projects of the old republic. There are no privately owned automobiles - they add to the green house gasses that contribute to climate change and have been outlawed, only members of the elite and the proletariat are allowed access to the publicly owned luxury cars which are driven by members of the designated special class of the liberated workers union made up mostly of immigrant refugees, all other citizens are free to use public transportation.
The Liberated Workers Union employs citizens loyal to the party for work in stores and governmental departments, public services, the military, and transportation. These jobs go to women and people of oppressed races including the trans-gendered.  To work for a corporation one must have a special workers permit as most of the corporations employ only foreign workers who are allowed into the country under a special workers visa for specialized work that the citizens can’t do for lack of education in those fields - because it is not permitted by the party. 

Money in the new utopia is controlled by the central bank - this new country has retained the fractional reserve system of the old Federal Reserve but actual cash has been outlawed. Now money is all digital and controlled by “The Bank”.  Because work is scarce, money must be distributed to the people. Everyone is given a certain amount of currency units per month according to their needs, this is in addition to their food stamps.  “The Bank controls the money, therefore, all digits transferred to the government for it’s social benefits and other projects is borrowed by the people and must  be paid back with interest - it is basically still the same old Federal Reserve. Banks make profits by charging fees every time one makes a purchase, or withdraws from ones account, as well as charging a fee every time money is deposited into an account.  Records of all purchases and transactions are kept and maintained by all banks and the information is freely available for all to see as there is no privacy in the new utopia because privacy is not equality.

As in the old republic and as many socialist nations tend to be, the new utopia is a nation of privileges, and those privileges are granted by the government. In order to better protect society from radicals and terrorists, tax evaders and those that would violate the codes of “safe speech”, licences and permits must be obtained for most everything - it is for the good of society.  Also for the good of society - all fire arms have been outlawed, the growing of your own food is outlawed and home-schooling is outlawed.  Christianity and traditional families and gender roles are seen as outdated theories which serve no purpose in society and slow-down progress to true equality, they have therefore also been banned and any citizen found to be participating in any of these “old fashioned values” will soon find themselves in one of the many corporate owned prisons, work camps, or re-education centers.  In Islamic communities Sharia courts have been established,  for all others, the court of The Peoples Party will determine the degree of  innocents or quilt in violation of the laws or criminal activities - theft is no longer seen as a crime, as need provides reason for the taking of and redistribution of property of citizens. - for example: if a person of color has need of something a white citizen has but does not have the means to acquire that object he is free to take it, if the presumed owner of that piece in question should object, he is in violation of the law - equality means sharing with those in need... and if one can afford something that another can not, then you do not need it as badly as the one who cannot afford it. There is no private property - only property that has been granted to citizens with the proper permits and licences. Everything and every person in the new utopia must be registered with The Peoples Party.

Religion is controlled by The Party, except for the Islamic religion which is allowed to continue with out interference from The Party, as Islam has always been oppressed by the white race it is now free to be practiced without question or objection.  Though traditional Christianity and Families have been banned, Islamic men are free to retain their cultural and religious traditions including taking multiple wives and enforcing strict brutal punishment such as honor killings.  For those foreigners wishing to receive any benefits that come with state granted privileges, they must abandon their previous religion in favor of the state run church of equality or have no religion at all.  The state does not believe in nor will it tolerate the teaching or preaching of God from any source outside of Judaism or Islam, which are the only groups allowed to have their own communities, their own schools, and their own traditions.

Progress -  Sounds lovely...

The other country.

There were two significant events that occurred in the formation of the second nation. The first being the complete destruction and removal of the central banking system by the people - a move that came as a big surprise to the powers that be, but one that they should have seen coming if the people were allowed to chose for themselves.  A major factor in the ability of the people to literally burn down the old Federal Reserve buildings (and their monetary system) was the fact that most of the military personal and veterans of the old republic flocked to the non socialist new country.  Paper money was printed but this countries currency was based on gold and silver which was regulated by The New Order.  All debts were wiped clean and credit cards destroyed. Terms of interest on loans could be negotiated among two individual parties but this country would not borrow money from a private bank let alone pay interest for it - therefore, income tax was eliminated.  The curbing of social programs and a very small government also contributed to the move to remove the taxation of private income - the government of the New Order and it’s military were financed by tariffs on imported products, and by sales tax.  The second country quickly became famous for it’s bank privacy laws and for it’s business friendly atmosphere - having a small government meant less bureaucracy and regulatory government departments to deal with - for example; if one wanted to set up a lemonade stand or sell burritos on the street from a basket, they would not need a permit to do so.  But many businesses in the second country had to be reformed, the food industry being one of them. As a healthy lifestyle was both promoted and encouraged by the New Order many chemicals and byproducts used in additives and preservers became illegal in foods, products such as artificial sweeteners and hormones along with all genetically modified products were removed from the public’s diet.  The computer industry also had to go through a reformation - this had a great impact on the rest of the world.  As privacy became a greater issue to the “free world”, the New Order offered a reward to the company that could deliver a secure and independent computer operating system  - what the nation wanted was a product not a licence to use a product they had no voice in choosing from.  After the winning system was chosen Microsoft and Apple soon faded into history and true advancements in the computer realm were possible along with internet privacy.

The next significant incident was the distribution of land.  Each male over thirty already residing in the new country after the split was given an equal portion of land to do with as they chose. All new arriving men over thirty coming from the old republic were also  given an equal sized parcel of land - though not as big as the original resident nationals.  These land grants were significant because by new law only males who owned land would be allowed to vote in any and all elections concerning representatives and legislature.  Many men preferred to sell their parcels in stead of developing their land. Still,  men who owned homes or real-estate of any form were eligible to vote.  All of the old housing project from the old republic were torn down under the rule of The New Order, as well as decrepit neighborhoods and slums - there were no more ghettos, these areas were redeveloped as collages, cultural centers, parks, or reforested and  farmed.  Women could inherit land and buy land, and are free to own businesses but they do not have the right to vote.

The only social welfare in the second country was available to those individuals too disabled to work and the elderly with no family to care for them.  Abortion in the second country was outlawed.  Any doctors found to be performing abortions were sentenced to death along with any woman terminating the life of an unborn child.  Crime was a rarity in the new country - the law was modeled after the Ten Commandments, simplified by the people as “no killing, no raping, no stealing, and if you make a deal with some one you follow through” and that was the law - no longer complicated by incomprehensible legal jargon and undecipherable codes and statutes. When the prisons of the old republic were emptied the dregs of society were marched across the border to The Utopia, if a person was in the old prison system for a victimless crime they were permitted to stay but only after they served their community for at least two years were they granted citizenship - there were no victimless crimes in the land of The New Order. Because Government was small and courts were few Justice was now swift and brutal. 

Due to the lack of social welfare and the countries Christian based values, divorce was no longer allowed - Marriage licenses  were no longer given out by the state and the government kept out of the affairs of two consenting adults -as the law states - if you make a deal with some one you follow through, therefore, a person must have a very compelling case for the courts to permit the separation of a marriage, but the divorce must first be granted by the church.  Families and traditional lifestyles were encouraged as they have always been found to benefit children and society.  Most married women do not work outside the home in the new country and there are no day care centers for children as men make plenty of income to support their families.  Though work in this new nation is plenty and the economy is stronger than other countries surrounding it, the people have chosen to live a tribal life with many generations of a family gathered in one place and family, simplicity and national pride are more important than the pursuit of material goods.  But goods manufactured in the new country are of the highest quality and highly sought after through out the world as the products once made in the old republic - the new nation is known for its strong work ethic and ingenuity and the pride the men take in their work.
National pride and identity is important to the people of the new country as well as the preservation of their culture and Christian traditions.  In this nation the citizens come first and foreigners get no free rides, immigrants are only allowed into the country if they can show that they are bringing a useful skill that will allow them to find work and that they will be productive and proud members of society - but they must understand and accept the fact that the nationals come first and until they are granted citizenship they are lower class citizens.  Mixed marriages are discouraged but because of the lack of wives in the beginning, men are allowed to bring in their foreign brides.  Marriages between mixed religions is not allowed. Though most of the single women of the old republic chose to live in the Utopia The men had no problem finding wives in other countries as they had the reputation of being hard working, highly intelligent, financially stable, family oriented, trustworthy, brave, and honorable men of strong morals and values.  The Nation of The New Order is mostly populated by whites of European descent and traditional conservative Hispanics.  Homosexuality is not allowed and those participating in homosexual behavior are sent to the border and escorted to the Utopia were all homosexuals are welcomed.

The education of children is the responsibility of the family and most schools are parochial - there is a strong emphasis placed on math and science with history and literature. Academic and athletic competition is highly encouraged in school and national pride is constantly on display by students in the way they honor and respect each other and their professors.  A child’s education is complete by the time they reach their fifteenth birthday, by then they should be graduating high school and by tradition most young people take a year off before they enter their military training - by law all men and women must go through combat training and the men must serve a two year term in the military.  Traditionally, military service is done after high school, so by the  age of nineteen one is ready to enter collage or the work force with their military training behind them.  Many young men chose to remain in the service as they continue their education.  Women must go through combat training as well but are also trained as nurses.

The Nation of The New Order tends to be isolationist in its way and will not involve itself with the conflicts and the problems of other countries - it has no problem trading in commerce but chooses to remain neutral in matters not concerning the best interests of it’s people.  Life in the new country is pleasant and simple and carefree - there are no psychiatrists and psychotropic drugs have been outlawed, children do not turn autistic and there is no ADD.  Boys are boys and girls are girls and there is no one there to confuse them, innocence is protected and those who seek to alter traditional ways are quickly dealt with.  People are free to do as they please as long as they do not hurt or impose their will on others.  There is no “safe speech” there is only free speech.  People try not to hurt others feelings but if some ones feelings are hurt - no one cares, if you are too delicate you are free to move to the Utopia.

A nation is one people with a common belief moving towards a common goal.  Which of these two countries would you chose to live in?

This is just a work of fiction - a “What if?” kind of piece - First, the powers that be would never let a country divide itself, especially a people seeking to liberate themselves from a socialist government - even America wont put up with that, and second, if the people mobilized themselves and went after the central banks, you can be sure that the army of that nation would gun their citizens down.

The truth is, once a country goes full blown socialist - they would rather see the free-thinkers tortured and killed  before they let you go find freedom and happiness someplace else. It is what history has shown us.

(trick question - which one of these two countries do you think will attack the other first?)
