Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Four-stage death roll

Paraphrasing Walter Cronkite: the thought of your kids on Communism oughta scaaaare yuh to death.

We Americans are currently in a civilizational state historians William Strauss and Neil Howe would call the “Third Turning”: an unraveling. The so-called Left is making it happen, too, with conservatives enabling it by conserving yesterday’s liberalism and being those nice guys who finish last.

In Marxist circles, this stage would be called “destabilization” — the second of a four-part process to subvert a society and seize control. The first, third, and fourth stages are, respectively, “demoralization,” “crisis,” and “normalization.”

The demoralization stage, which essentially is the undermining of a target nation’s morality (the process of radically changing the population’s “values”), was actually “over-fulfilled” in the mid-1980s already, as Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov put it at the time. This process continues and is manifested in the widespread antipathy for sexual propriety, faith, and all that is great and good — and in the lust for perversion, socialism, feminism, multiculturalism, “transgenderism,” and anti-Americanism in general. We see it in the tearing down of statues; removal of long present Christian symbols; leftist propaganda and decadence in schools and entertainment;, prioritizing of illegal aliens over citizens; revising of American history and impugning of whites; and in attacks on the Constitution, the Founding Fathers, and all things traditional.

This destabilization of the American mind and moral compass now has begotten, as it must, societal destabilization. This is reflected in, most obviously, the flooding of our nation with unassimilable foreigners via a purposely porous border. This serves the Cloward-Piven goal of overloading the system to cause breakdown, necessitating replacement of it with, the theory goes, a socialist one.

Of course, this human flood strains schools, hospitals, and services and resources in general. But it’s also used for propaganda purposes, with simple efforts to enforce immigration law — ones pursued by Barack Obama himself — used to demonize ICE agents and the current administration. Vile, divisive lies such as claiming that detention facilities are Nazi-like “concentration camps” lead to hatred, violence, protests, and terrorist attacks such as Saturday’s assault on a Tacoma, Washington ICE facility.
   
This is part of the greater destabilization represented by physical attacks on, threats against, and censorship of the Left’s political opposition, phenomena now being encouraged by media and facilitated by Big Tech as left-wing politicians and law enforcement turn a blind eye. Why not? This all serves to quash their political opposition.

Should this continue in both duration and increasing severity, we will eventually be brought to the “crisis” state, a relatively short stage in which there’s a revolutionary change of power.

All of this is already quite familiar to anybody with functioning synapses, which makes it sobering stuff indeed. Just don’t call ’em Marxists.

To be clear, I don’t say those fomenting this are “Marxists.” Doctrinaire Marxism is, well, so yesterday. Leftists epitomize the moral relativism imbuing our age and, as such, worship the Gods of the Shifting Goalposts. Oh, they’re not better than Marxists (they may be worse), but they have made a lateral move in lunacy. Today they’re sort of like the Marquis de Sade meets Stalin and the Stasi.

Well, I dunno about all that, now. There’s an ongoing debate in various places—mostly Right-leaning ones; the Left doesn’t care what you call ’em, so long as you submit to and obey them— about the usefulness, accuracy, and relevance of terms like “liberal,” “conservative,” “Right,” “Left,” et al for a few years now. It all seems like splitting the hairs a scoche too fine to me. Whatever your nomenclature of preference is, it’s plain enough where the battle lines are drawn; getting bogged down in semantics at this late date seems worse than a waste of time that could better be spent zeroing rifles and loading mags.
