In the dark days of the Russian revolution, certain men were pariah. The “landed class” were used as a totem to rally the poor proletariat around. This wasn’t unique to Russia, but it’s a modern example. In the bloody French Revolution, the aristocracy was blamed for all the ills of society, and the poverty of most citizens. In Mao’s “Great Leap Forward,” the greedy merchants were blamed for scarcity of goods. Etc., ad infinitum.
I’m not dispensing some secret knowledge, here. So far, there have been no clever revelations, on my part. I’m simply setting the scene.
Following Marx’s “conflict theory,” the agents of supposed progress have set out, as the 1st order of business, to identify villains. The hereditary monarchy, the financial aristocracy, the entrepreneur, the military dictator, or the hedge fund manager: all have been used, at some point in history, as scapegoats.
Painting victims and villains, with however broad a brush befits their narrative, has always been the agent progressateur’s hole card. The same pattern is always used: steady, unrelenting vilification – subtle, at first – then ramping up to fever-pitch after a few decades or, in some cases, generations.
Then, the long knives come out, once the “agents of change” are confident that enough hands are willing to wield them. Or, at least, that there are sufficient numbers of people just apathetic enough to not step in and prevent the stabbing. (See: Nazi Germany)
As students of history, privy to the tactics and goals of these progressive scape-goaters, we can identify their glaring weakness. And exploit it.
What is this weakness, you ask? Well, as the old joke goes, when you push the sheep (or, goat, in this case) to the edge of a cliff, it will push back. That’s the key.
In every one of these “glorious peoples’ revolutions” I’ve referenced, the leaders thereof *thrived* on the pushback. And the validation it garnered them. The bourgeoisie had been so successfully demonized that the masses saw any pushback merely as further proof of the scapegoats’ evil.
Insidious? Yes. But, oh so effective.
The dirty little secret, then, is this: for as much as the progressives desire to screw the scapegoats, they also *need* them. Much as Sharpton and Jackson need racial tension, in order to continue their (lucrative) “work.” Even if they have to make it up. It’s the same principle.
Socialists, for as much as they decry wealth, capital, and business, also are entirely dependent upon the fruits thereof to fund their manipulation of society.
We must expose these buggering Bolshevists in our midst and document the bestiality, while a relatively moral society still exists to recoil from it. If the pushback is forceful enough, and starts well before that cliff’s edge is reached, there is still time to stave off the inevitable. Once at the edge, only two choices remain: be screwed, or jump off.
