Philosophy/Magic in Demotism
A car is based on explosions. Fire is what makes it go. Thaumaturgically, it should be loud and hot. But we can put a radiator and a muffler on it, and it’s not that bad, unless it’s been sitting in direct sunlight.
Demotism is based on envy. Thing about envy is you can’t have it flopping around untethered. Have to have a target. Hence, market dominant minorities. Kulaks, Jews. Or, in the proggie’s case, market dominant majorities. Not merely handy, but vital. Envy is what makes it go, but there’s no such thing as a sociological muffler.
Marx tried to do it with classes. If you have racially pure nations, you work with what you got. Classes aren’t really that unmistakeable, though, so it’s not great. Further, immigrants always have a strong vote bias, so the party they vote for always wants to import them. Skin colour: now you’re cooking with gas.
Even if proggies manage to prison-camp every white, inevitably they will want to import someone of a different shade of brown. They will try to exploit the envy of the original shade of brown, and the cycle will repeat. As always, as politics approaches communism, citizens must approach equal. The envotaic force must be allowed to do work. However, we are all equal if and only if we are all dead.
Both are demotists, and both are envy and grievance made politics.
