Most people, until the recent Brexit and Trump election, had no idea how insane and pathological the Left are. It has spread a wave of shock through the West: these are our leaders?
Like insects, they impulsively repeat motions as if their heads have been removed and all that is left is the twitching reflex. Their ideology says that equality is better than reality, so they enjoy lying, distorting and editing history.
This is why for them, the fact that they lost an election is not particularly important. All that matters is “getting around” that little impediment. Because they are right. 100% morally right and socially right. In their minds.
A bigger story to this election is that the West is finally rejecting The Enlightenment.™ Since we no longer teach anything but post-1945 ideology in our schools, you might ask: what is The Enlightenment™?
The Enlightenment is the idea that the human individual should be the measure of mankind, and each individual should be free to live by intent, not hampered by social hierarchy. In other words: equality.
For every individual to do what they want, even if it is illogical, we must create a theory of equality so that bad results are equal to good results and therefore, it is okay that people are acting illogically. This is the root of Leftism.
From that you can see how collectivism is individualism. Each member of the crowd wants to ensure that he is accepted. He insists, to that end, that everyone be accepted even if they are bad. Now he is guaranteed a position.
Now, many centuries later, we are seeing the fruit of Leftism: broken social order, miserable wimpy people, horrible jobs, endless pollution, the nuclear threat is back again, our leaders are smug idiots, and many more… it is a laundry list of complaints. That is important because it indicates a generalized breakdown of society, not clustered around a single defect but arising from a defective design in general.
Those of us with any sense left are speaking of the only logical response possible: we took a wrong turn, so we need to go back, turn around, and take the path we were on before we went down this road to doom.
What does that look like? Around here, we speak of the four pillars:
This society would resemble the intersection of England in the 1930s and 1630s. The good people, who are maybe 20% of the population, would be promoted to positions of power. Everyone else would be gently subjugated. Moral and intellectual accuracy and goodness would be the primary concern of society.
There is a paradise outside our doorstep, and we do not need to go anywhere to find it. We just need to re-organize what we are doing, and specifically, stop doing the stupid things that Leftism and The Enlightenment™ induce us to do.
It is time to inherit the future of the past.
