Step-By-Step, Inch-By-Inch [UPDATED]

19 July 2014 @ 01:13

In post by Darleen Click, over at Protein Wisdom, Sdferr remarks in the Comment section:

There does seem a kind of principle beneath the appearances [of Obama and his Administration] though, right?

To give it a name or two: change. Or, chaos. The ground of tyranny. Arbitrary herky-jerky tyranny, intentionally stirring up trouble for want of any sort of stability, while gliding along accruing power for the sake of power (i.e. to enable more instability, to accrue more power, and repeat). Like a formula.

Obama-Whitey-Knight-001xI and a few others, like Sdferr, have stated many times that the Left In America’s strategy is to sow and create Chaos in Society and then ride in like White Knights on white horses and restore order — a Totalitarian Order, but, hey, order and no more of that destructive uncertainty and wild bedlam.

But there is also another aspect to the Left’s strategy: while the Chaos is ongoing, while everyone is busy trying to keep up with the relentless barrage of latest incidents and outrages coming in from all directions, seize more Power And Control.  Make damn sure you create the crisis and never let any crisis go to waste.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a small bit of Power And Control that’s seized because all the little bits add up quickly. To use another analogy: the accumulating of Power And Control is like a snowball rolling down hill, accumulating more layers, getting larger and bigger with each revolution [pun intended] of the snowball.

Here endeth the lesson.

UPDATE at 1903…

It would be good, I think, particularly in light of the inadequate treatment I gave the subject at pw, to explore more fully the question of the trend regarding the border in ClownDisaster’s behaviors. To suggest roughly what I only dimly perceive about this, the border, or any border for that matter, is not simply a matter of a physical limit, but entails the identity of that “something” to which it makes a limit.

In other words, by means of muddying or erasing our border, the most fundamental identity contained within the border is itself brought into question — namely, the citizen or the meaning of the citizen. And yet, now that a defense of this fundamental being is made necessary, we see that heretofore no defense has been our practice, if only on account of the profound, wide-ranging agreement regarding the citizen, an agreement which hadn’t necessitated a defense. It just was, to our contentment.

However, now the mass (the polloi) who are utterly unaccustomed to making such a defense must rise to it, albeit that these are completely bereft of ideas how to proceed, for the mass has arrived back at the beginning and isn’t practiced in grasping beginnings. This will make for a very bumpy road as this mass attempts to regain its bearings.

    Bob, I believe I have yesterday run into an article (by Mark Krikorian at Ricochet) which articulates the question and explores it in better terms, perhaps, than I have done: “Does an American People Exist?

    I would note down in the comments on that article Krikorian’s reference to the term “problematized”, which, if an ungainly sort of speech, is nevertheless precisely on point as regards the political phenomenon we are forced to confront.
