An insightful look ahead, now that AINO is visibly coming apart at the seams.
Every honest student of contemporary affairs can tell that the Western style of liberal democracy fueled by a capitalism-socialism fusion is on it’s last legs. We can see the race to keep printing new “money” to stay ahead of inflation will eventually collapse on itself. The only reason it hasn’t fallen completely apart yet is the lack of a system wide shock but we are overdue for one and when it happens, the whole house of cards falls.
In interwar Germany, as the Weimar Republic rolled around in degeneracy like a pig in shit, two competing forces were vying to replace it. Neither wanted to control the Weimar Republic, they wanted to remake it into something else.
Everyone knows about the one side.
And on the other, as Arthur explains, was “the militant wing of the German Communist Party of that era which called itself Antifaschistische Aktion,” upon which the present-day pAntiFa plague of locusts is based.
I am not looking to lionize the Sturmabteilung in this post nor of course Antifaschistische Aktion. My point is that these two groups looked past the current system and sought to replace that system with a brand new system, at some level both groups understanding that the system was doomed and irredeemable. It wasn’t reform they were after, it was revolution.
We find ourselves in a similar era. Despite the obvious differences, the similarities cannot be ignored. People are frightened of what the future holds. Gone is any sense of sunny American optimism, replaced with dread of more economic insecurity, violence in the cities and the apparently now permanent state of panic over the plandemic. Most Americans don’t trust the election system, and increasingly the political divide has morphed into a visceral hatred of “The Other”. The language of violence is already rampant and getting steadily worse from the Left. A few weeks ago a person named Steve Cox running as an independent for Congress from California wrote that people who choose not to get the “vaccine” should be shot.
The entire society is teetering on the edge of widespread economic and social collapse and almost no one is still dumb enough to look to the governing authorities or any other institution for help. What exists today is dead and the only question that remains is what will replace the dead system? This requires a very different way of thinking:
We are not fighting for the right now, we are fighting for the future.
Who wants to win a fight to take over a dead and decaying system? The winners of this conflict will get to set the course for what remains of Western society, for good or ill, for the foreseeable future.
Current events are important of course and those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them but our focus should be on shaping what is to come, rather than seizing the reins of power in the right-now. As the saying goes, we aren’t going to vote our way out of this but grassroots organizing and creating both a physical and intellectual foundation to control the course of the future absolutely is feasible.
With the opportunity to kill Commies along the way, as many as possible, being just an added plus.
Now we’re talking.
A stoic examination of the reality of our situation & a determination to do something about it. That’s the sort of attitude & looking toward the future that’s needed.
A prerequisite to any sort of restored functionality, whatever form that might take.
I’m not sure why, but this subject causes strange questions to swirl…
What do sailors do when they find the captain is no longer fit for duty?
Is a captain in any way like a ruling class writ large?
Could this whole thing be resolved more simply than might be assumed?
SMOD hitting DC while everyone was in session would solve a lot of problems. Would it be enough though?
