When All Roads Lead to the Standoff. How Corporate Governance Fuels White Supremacy
Sound Bite
Using eye-witness accounts to narrate the terrifying, failed efforts at communication during the standoffs at Ruby Ridge and in Waco, TX, Haskin offers a psycho-social theory for militant white movements influenced by political economics.

The heart-stopping dialogues as the authorities in both cases make their erroneous calculations are dramatic, but so is the idea that such events can furnish essential clues to success for those who are responsible for de-fusing such conflicts.

The Ruby Ridge standoff and the Branch Davidian siege were symptoms of a broader battle between the goals of Corporate Governance and the hatred of white supremacists. Haskin show that by instilling insecurity, the Corporate power makes a mockery of citizens’ free will. Bred by a different set of goals and grievances, white supremacists would use and sacrifice anyone (whites included) to achieve their “whites-only” world. What if white supremacists and those who favor Corporate Governance find common ground? The worst of both their goals—grotesque levels of deprivation, debt peonage, survival slavery, ethnic cleansing, and racial and religious violence—may be our future.

By offering a psycho-social theory on the basis of political economics, this book explains militant white movements and how such events, as both the Ruby Ridge standoff and the Branch Davidian siege, were symptoms of the broader battle between the goals of Corporate Governance and its equivocal attitude towards the enrollment of white supremacists in its pursuit.

At the elite end, the drive of the wealthy and powerful toward a neofeudal technocracy as the pinnacle of Corporate Governance can never be benevolent if it garners more than our labor and intellect by instilling insecurity for the masses to make a mockery of a free society. At the grass roots level, white supremacists would also use and sacrifice anyone (whites included) to achieve a “whites-only” world. 

As the hopelessness and uncertainty produced by the wealthy and powerful push increasing numbers of the majority white people (willingly or unwittingly) toward the camp of the white supremacists, this overarching battle places enormous stress on the all too fragile fault lines upon which families, societies, and nations are divided, whether at the national (macro) level or the more pressing (micro) level of community, family, etc. 

However the precariousness of this alliance between elites and the disenfranchised whites pushes the two too often into conflict. The frustration of the lower social class of white supremacists not strong enough to seize the elite’s American government and/or destroy Corporate Governance, results in that its leaders advocate proxy wars—pitting average, ordinary citizens who claim to be white separatists against the monolith of the elite’s state—in hopes of promoting a backlash against the government which in fact does not represent them.

The message of Ruby Ridge standoff and the Branch Davidian siege? 

If the government crushes them, as  the representatives of the militant white, then the same can happen to anyone. 

This is the kernel of the standoff—between dark age warlords and disenfranchised masses left with conspiracy theories.

The question, therefore, is whether white supremacists and those who favor Corporate Governance will find common ground in forming a new fascist army for global domination. If so, then the worst of their goals—grotesque deprivation, debt peonage, survival slavery, ethnic cleansing, and racial and religious violence—may stand to be carried out on a world-wide scale.

As citizens, we can no longer face these groups by keeping our eyes wide-shut. 

We must examine their paths and try to turn them back.
