On an episode of The Candace Owens Show that aired this past May, Owens had as her guest Dennis Prager. While I agreed with most of the points made by both Ms. Owens and Mr. Prager, one item struck me as an example of superficial analysis. They declared that the primary objective of the Left is “chaos.” In an immediate sense, this seems true; the so-called “progressive left” does appear to be deliberately sowing chaos in America today.
However, I submit that the Left’s “chaos” is an intermediate objective, the means to an end. They have a well defined endgame. The Communist Bloc countries were a lot of things, but they were generally not chaotic.
What is the agenda of the Left, if it is not simply chaos?
Leftists rationalize what they are doing as being in the service of what will ultimately be a Star Trek–like “United Earth,” a one-world community ruled by the bureaucrats of the U.N., where there will be no more war, all resources will be shared, all conflicts will be “managed,” and the “masses” will be doled out whatever the elites decree the latter “needs” in return for World Peace Forevermore. In real day-to-day terms, this enables an unaccountable, parasitic globalist elite class to decide what is best for everybody. Ultimately, the progressive left elites of the West are busy selling out their own countries in order to appease the other major actors on the world stage, especially China and political Islam, to get the latter to cooperate in this globalist fantasy.
In reality, China; political Islam; and the other major independent political actor, Russia, will merely pocket the concessions of the West and continue to pursue their particular interests, in traditional great power fashion, at the West’s expense. The corrupt Western elites who have sold their souls for this paradigm don’t really care, as they fundamentally do not believe that what the West represents is worth fighting for. In short, what these corrupt globalist Western elites are engaged in is a highly rationalized form of treason.
Writ large, what the self-styled “progressive left” is selling amounts to a modern version of feudalism, in which a self-appointed elite, whose status is maintained by the promotion of a self-serving “progressive,” neo-Marxist dogma, is anointed to tell the rest of us peasants how we must live our lives, not unlike the Divine Right of Kings. The Rest of Us will be compelled to create wealth for them, as they enjoy an opulent existence without earning it; the likes of Obama, Hillary, Macron, Merkel, etc., couldn’t produce something genuinely useful if their lives depended on it. In their world, over-educated uselessness becomes a virtue, as they are simply “above” having to produce anything. It certainly beats actual work.
That is what the Left wants. It isn’t chaos. It is integration into global feudalism.
Perfectly correct, to the last detail, and there should be no surprise in any of it, for any of us. From the very dawning of the Progressive era and its adherents’ call for iron-fisted, top-down rule by “expert,” t’was ever thus—and ever t’will be. The Left’s methods have been slightly tweaked when deemed necessary and expedient, but their intentions and ambitions have never changed, and they won’t.
