Moscow considers itself “The Third Rome” after the 1st Rome fell to the Ostrogoths in 476 AD and the 2nd Rome—Constantinople—fell to the Turks in 1453. Thus, she believes she is the inheritor of God’s plan on earth, the true successor and recipient of Grace, Tradition, Morality, and Dogma. The Russian people believed this, every czar believed this, and Putin certainly believes this. He was merely enunciating the obvious realities of Reason and Revelation that have been around since Christ walked upon the earth. Putin was, in a very subtle way, explaining how the West has gone mad and thus has no business trying to enforce its madness upon the world.
Our ruling classes are not Bolsheviks, they are Maoists. Their forebears are neither Lenin nor Trotsky nor Stalin; but Mao, Pol Pot, Lin Biao, Kim Il-sung, and Jiang Qing. “Wokeism” is not a Bolshevik phenomenon. The Soviets could tell men from women after all. The USSR was interested far more in outward conformity than in internal ideological agreement. Maoists, however, desire to force an internal change in every man so that every thought is in complete alignment with the Party. Thus the “struggle sessions” at universities and corporations; thus the enlisting of children and students in ideological crusades proclaimed by the ruling elites; thus the elimination of the past; thus the destruction of the middle classes; thus the war against the family; thus the creation of mass hysteria; thus the war against all cultural norms; thus the show of public obeisance to the ruling ideology—kneeling and mask-wearing; thus the use of Antifa and BLM—American versions of Mao’s “Red Guards”. These are all hallmarks of pure Maoism.
It does not matter at all that our ruling classes understand nothing at all of most of America. It does not matter at all that they have never worked outside of government. It does not matter at all that they are ignorant of History, Philosophy, Literature, Music, and every other aspect of Western Civilization. What matters is that they mean what they say. What they have to do to maintain power they will do. You can no more debate with these ferals than you would debate with a rabid animal or with a cyborg. They, being in every sense true Maoists, know what Mao meant when he wrote that “all power flows from the barrel of a gun.”
Learn that lesson well. Know your enemy. He will never stop. He will never surrender.
