They didn't have permission. the campus march was unannounced and the police did order it dispersed.

Well, if not anything else, I'm glad to hear they didn't have permission!

Yes. Evidently it was so successful that it forced the cancellation of a bunch of other nazi rallies

The whole left/right thing is about as important as the Jaguars winning a playoff game. Just entertainment.

Columbia University Sociology Professor C. Wright Mills wrote The Power Elite in 1956.
https://www.amazon.com/Power-Elite-C....+wright+mills

In 1961 two-term President and 5-star General Dwight Eisenhower warned of the rising power of the Military-Industrial-Complex in his Farewell Address.

However, in the last 60 years the Power Elite have not lost power, but instead have evolved into the Military-Industrial-Pharmaceutical-Educational-Banking-Congressional-Etc.-Complex with, imho, the CIA, not the Executive or Judicial branches of government, in the catbird seat.

So you are saying that the present Administration is no worse than if perhaps Hillary Clinton (left) had been sworn in as President instead of Trump (right)?

Both sides entirely the same? The only difference between the two is the entertainment value?

As I've noted previously, Dwight Eisenhower ought to really know all about the military-industrial-complex since he's pretty much the guy who built it. It is hard to give Eisenhower much credit for recognizing the monster that he, more than anyone else, helped to create.

If Ike was actually concerned about the growing power of the MIC, it might have been nice if he had of done something/anything to constrain it rather than being one of the biggest creators/boosters/enablers/cheerleaders of the MIC back in its infancy.
