Patrick Henry stated that the Constitution was not for the government to restrain the people but for the people to restrain the government less the government should come to dominate our lives and our thoughts. In other words, the government was not to be a totalitarian government.
The definition of a totalitarian government is a government that subordinates the individual to the state and strictly controls all aspects of life by coercive measures. A government that believes it is their right or duty to control the thoughts, actions, and lives of the people by using coercive methods is in fact a totalitarian government. The totalitarian government says to the people that you must think the way we think, or we will punish you. This is what Karl Marx meant when he said that society should be a classless society; society should strictly conform to a singular thought pattern.
A perfect example of Marxist totalitarianism happened in San Antonio recently. The city council said you must agree with our ideas on what we determine to be proper thought and behavior, or we will punish you.
Six members of the San Antonio City Council rejected the inclusion of Chick-fil-A from the new Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement for the Sam Antonio airport. The seven-year contract for concession management at the terminal is expected to create $2.1 million in revenue for the Texas city; the motion that passed gave the green light to food shops including Smoke Shack and Local Coffee.
“With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion,” Councilman Roberto Treviño said of the vote. “San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”
“Everyone has a place here, and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport,” he continued.
This is Marxist totalitarianism and anti-American ideals of free thought and the exercise thereof. All totalitarian states take the same position the San Antonio city council took. This is the same position we see exercised by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party of today; think the way we do, or we will demonize and destroy you. They are attempting this tactic against President Trump. Unlike Fox News, Trump is fighting back and defending the United States Constitution and the mandatory element of freedom; freedom of speech and thought by all even when it does not conform to the Marxist ideology.
