Dear Mr. Podesta:
I presume that there are very few observations of mine, which could be of use to Mrs. Clinton, but I do believe that she should do something about the repetitious content of Sanders attacks. There are too many functional illiterates now in the world and more than half of the population of the United States are a part of the irrational masses that the illiteracy produces. One cannot reason without an acceptable assimilation of language. I remember that Heidegger said that “man speaks first and then thinks”, and he also wrote that “we were given the PROMISE of language”. Germany after World War I was also in that situation and Goebels taught us that if a people is told the same lie a thousand times, the people is drawn to believe it. It is Trump’s main asset but Sanders is also using it. There are a few things that may be of use.
He definitely opened himself to a definitely destructive attack when he referred to the achievements of the Cuban revolution. The health service of Cuba is as good or better than the French, but to establish that in the United States his revolution has to be an armed revolution. A culture of helping each other to the extent the Cuban people have achieved has to be made up with an absolute control of the media and the education. Sanders understood that very well but he does not mention anything beyond saying that “the people have to stand up”, “the people must rise”. Lenin and Mao also used to say that, because it was understood that it meant “to rise in arms”. The use of the language faculty is so irrepleaceable that Cuban have placed great importance to it in their education system. Even Stalin recommended workers organizations to learn Russian well with no swearing words and no foreign words. Sanders does not explain how he is going to manage to fulfill most of his promises. He says that the people must stand up. If the speaker is not clear, the listener does not reason what he hears.
Whenever Sanders cannot give a proper answer or a proper explanation, he repeats the words of the question and goes on to repeat what he always says in connection with the subject.
The American people will not want a revolution as the one Sanders is preaching. They may be willing to live an “evolution”. Sanders would not be able to fulfill his promises even if he changes to Constitution to be President for three terms. The change has to be gradual: strengthening and improving what has already been achieved.
Stress that repeating the same thing always is a fascist technique. That it is what Trump is doing by not allowing the people to reason, by not explaining anything, by saying the opposite of what he has already said if there is a strong reaction against. Trump last week asked the people in a meeting to raise their hands and swear. I suppose it was to swear their support although I did not hear that part.
Finally, I feel rather sure that Turner does not know what Chalia and Burnett and others in CNN are doing constantly working for Trump. Somebody should tell him that he is being used as Nazi media were used.
