Leftism Will Tear Us Apart, Again
As the Martin/Zimmerman and Derbyshire situations have shown us, the state of race relations in this country is in steep and quick decline.
That the Left is to blame for this is obvious when you spend but a few moments looking into the causes.
Part of the Left’s strategy for gaining power and control is to cause Chaos in society. They merely have to ignite the flame and blow on it from time to time, then sit back and watch the conflagration grow, because one of the few true facts of Human Nature they have sussed-out is that a good number of people will always react emotionally, ignoring Right Reason in their frenzies. If they push their minions to radical action, they believe that those is opposition will provide and equal and opposite reaction. If the radical action taken is not intense enough to provoke the reaction they want then the Left pushes it’s toadies to even more radical action. This escalation continues unto the desired result [Chaos] is achieved.
The Left knows it cannot obtain power and control through legitimate means, especially in The United States, which has a long-tradition of breeding individuality into it’s peoples, so it must resort to underhanded tactics to achieve what it wants. It must breakdown Free Will and cause people to plead and beg for the ‘knights in shining armor’, the ‘heroes on horseback’, to come and save them. Otherwise, there will be resistance. George Orwell understood this. It was not enough, as far as the state was concerned, to force Winston Smith to comply with the edicts of their Totalitarian regime, he must be mentally broken so that he ended up, of his own Free Will, loving Big Brother. He had to be made to fire the weapon that blew his own soul apart.
This is what the Left is seeking to do here in America. They want to break our Wills and make us want to be taken care of by them. They know that is the only way they will achieve a lasting victory. The Left believes that every Human Being can be re-engineered to spec – a set of specifications that only they, of course, are wise enough to write-up. This is what they tried to do in every country where they gained power. And this strategy has failed everywhere it has been tried – and hundreds of millions were murdered in the process.
While the Leftist Elites are basically cretinous in their thinking, they do possess a low-cunning that has allowed their members in The United States to believe that a different approach than that followed by the Soviets was needed. They also came to see that, unlike everywhere else in the world – even in the other countries of The West – the breaking of the American Spirit would require a variation in tactics. We are too cowboy, as it were, embracing a rugged individualism that most other peoples of the World lack. The Left also understands that most Americans, though they would find it very hard to articulate, see themselves as ‘The Sovereign People’, that the government exists at the pleasure and consent of the governed. Call it pride of ownership if you will – and it happens, happily, to be the Truth. Of course, the Left doesn’t see it this way.
Let us not forget that the Left rejects that there is a God and that certain rights are granted by this Loving God to all Human Beings. They believe that the Universe is the result of unplanned happenings, that it is, in a sense, a product of whim. They see no point behind Human Life. Human Life just happened by chance. Therefore, in their minds, there is no higher authority than man that can be looked to for guidance and inspiration and to set standards. Human Beings are gods, the be all and end all of Life, in the Leftist Way Of Thinking. Thus, the Leftist believes that all things are relative [I know, these
are contradictory views, but the Leftists are master of cognitive dissonance]. The result of this mutant form of reasoning is that the Left rejects that Absolute Truths can exist and believes that The Permanent Things are a myth [all myths demand a backstory, so, of course, the
Left invents one – see 'Patriarchy, The' as an example].
The Left believes that all Human Beings comport with the view they, the Left, have developed of their fellow beings in the sterile laboratories of their non-reasoning minds. They can be so willfully blind because they have chosen to value these barren ideas more than what experiencing Life in the Real World teaches. They are ideologues, committed to loving ideas more than their fellow Men, or even themselves [Nihilism].
Because they accept as true that Human Beings are inferior to Ideology, the Left sees them as of little value and, therefore, any and all killings of them are justified in the service of ideas.
To achieve their ends, the Left can employ any means.
Faced with the problem [for them] that Americans (1) like their individuality, (2) they like living in a constitutional republic, and (3) when Leftist schemes are clearly explained to them, they overwhelmingly reject those ideas, the Left has to resort to hiding their real intentions from the us. And this is what they have done for over one hundred years, falsely claiming that they are merely falling in the footsteps of The Founders by deviously misrepresenting them and their beliefs.
However, this method was failing, so in the 1960’s the Left tried open rebellion. That, too, failed. So they then got together and developed the stealth strategy so well laid-out and described in Stanley Kurtz’s Radical-In-Chief. Thus began the earnest part of the long march through all American institutions begun by the some of the Left in the early part of the 20th Century.
Partnered with the Long March Strategy was another: to sow Chaos in American Society and American Culture. And one of the ways they went about it was to seek to discard the Melting Pot and replace it with many pots. In other words, the Left sought to destroy e pluribus unum and bring about Tribalism, where the Black though of himself as Black first and not as an American. The Left’s goal was to destroy ‘American’ as a viable descriptor of the people inhabiting The United States Of America, to get people to not identify with our nation, nut, rather, with their tribe, their special interest group, if you will. At this the Left has been quite successful. The next step is for this tribalism to take the violence and fear it causes in the micro and make it go macro.
Two steps in this direction are to be seen in their behavior in the Martin/Zimmerman and Derbyshire situations.
We on the Right must resist the Left in this with everything we’ve got. We especially must not allow the Left to bait us into reactions that go against Right Reason.
A Final Word: Because the form of Leftism being practiced in The United States is not as harsh on the surface as that practiced by Stalin and Hitler and Mao, too many of us make the mistake of thinking American Progressivism is not as dangerous a threat. Nothing could be further from the Truth. Make no mistake: the core ideas held by Barack Hussein Obama and David Axelrod and Bill Ayers are the exact same as those held by Stalin and Hitler and Mao and Robespierre. Do not let Socialism With A Happy Face [and an entitlement check] fool you.
