There were no Democratic Socialists in 1941.  As some of the comments point out, these were more likely American First people - a motto of the KKK.

"Liberalism became a distinct movement in the Age of Enlightenment, when it became popular among Western philosophers and economists. Liberalism sought to replace the norms of hereditary privilege, state religion, absolute monarchy, the divine right of kings and traditional conservatism with representative democracy and the rule of law. Liberals also ended mercantilist policies, royal monopolies and other barriers to trade, instead promoting free markets.[11] Philosopher John Locke is often credited with founding liberalism as a distinct tradition, arguing that each man has a natural right to life, liberty and property,[12] adding that governments must not violate these rights based on the social contract. While the British liberal tradition has emphasised expanding democracy, French liberalism has emphasised rejecting authoritarianism and is linked to nation-building.[13]

Leaders in the Glorious Revolution of 1688,[14] the American Revolution of 1776 and the French Revolution of 1789 used liberal philosophy to justify the armed overthrow of royal tyranny. Liberalism started to spread rapidly especially after the French Revolution. The 19th century saw liberal governments established in nations across Europe and South America, whereas it was well-established alongside republicanism in the United States.[15]"

The Socialist Party is not the same as the Democratic Socialists which came into being in the 1970's

Somewhere on the net the other day, I saw a photo of ANTIFA. They were holding up a big banner that said "Become Ungovernable".

 

What if ANTIFA actually turn against both Dems and Reps? That would really be something.

 

Could this be the start of a massive civil disobedience (hopefully peaceful) along the lines if Gandhi or Thoreau?

 

A do-not-comply movement.

When both parties' current leadership are corporate, then both parties would currently be Fascist.   If the citizen funded upstarts, eschewing the big donor's bribes, take over either party, then we might think this Fascist age in the one-time republic has begun to pass.

According to the NYT, DeSantis is a “fiery conservative” while Gillum is a “Mayor”. Why isn’t Gillum labeled an “angry liberal” or a “left-wing advocate”? Why aren’t the labels a more parallel Congressman and Mayor? Nope. The R gets an ideological warning label. The D doesn’t.

 

It's always possible that's just an accurate description of the two men.

Archbishop of Canterbury Declares God Gender Neutral!

 

Metaphysically, that's correct.  The "father, son".... bit is just patriarchal projection.

Next thing you know, since the term "god" is gender specific, there will be some new word to use, and "god" and "goddess" will be removed from our vocabulary.

Maybe that is why, in the original Hebrew stuff, they never used a name for God.  They never called "it" anything.  To put a name on God was forbidden.  The name "God" comes from the Germanic side of the Proto-Indo-European Language, with the same root as Good or Goth.  Theos, Deus, Dia, Duw and Zeus, are from the Greek/Celtic side of the PIE.  Jehovah comes from a Christian attempt to pronounce the unpronounceable.  Semitic languages used the unpronounceable tetragrammaton YWHW, which some Christians attempted to write as Jehovah or Yahweh.  If you actually try to pronounce YWHW, I think it sounds more like the wind than anything else, but they knew that was not it's name, just something they used to represent it.  

 

Christianity has definitely taken it further along a patriarchal path, but the Jewish were definitely there with the priesthood they developed after Moses.  In the biblical pre-Moses stuff, God is a creator, but "it" is not said to create with it's genitals, only with it's words and breath.

I like terms like the, "What Is," and, "Great Mystery."   Whatever It is, it sure isn't changed a great deal by what I might think or say.  These questions are much better applied as memes for creating wars and such.    There's no mass killing like when we can get a deity on our sides.   When it comes to that point, you have to round up those wise enough to question the insanity and put them on trial to make an example.

Hell, I'm not even sure you're a real person.
