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.
A comment in passing at Hard Truths from the New Russian Czar: Wokeness? Russia Has Been There Already made by Mike Austin January 25, 2022, 4:01 PM
Comments on this entry are closed.
Mike’s comment was beautifully written. Like GVL, he’s got some serious skills to construct and deliver his message and I, for one, always look forward to his commentary.
I passed the vid on to my two daughters. They’re lovely little creatures at 30 and 27, living in the dream world of so many others just like them with no idea of the cancer that is growing all around them. They work in their careers, attend bridle showers and baby showers, dream of being married, engage in their daily routines and stare endlessly at their phones with no idea at all that everything around them is FUBAR and getting worse.
I just sent the vid and I’m going to follow it up with Mike’s commentary. Then, I’m going to ask the Lord to permit some of it to get trapped in that part of their brains that looks for truth and reality.
plain as the nose on our faces for decades, now.
Unfortunately, Mike’s comment above and that video, to be understood, require the reader and/or viewer to have a basic understanding of history. Not much, but some. This basic understanding used to be taught in the public schools starting at the earliest grades and expanded upon all the way to graduation. In the last half century, in the public schools, this historical narrative has been slowly replaced by something else. Absent this basic understanding, further building of education upon that understanding is not possible. What’s left is multiple generations of people devoid of the historical culture of the US, replaced by the things Mike has mentioned. Net result is a lot of younger people that can NOT be American even though they may be american. Simply being born here is not enough. You have to be actively engaged in the long term (life?) effort of BEING an American.
Seems to me there are 2 types of people in the US fighting for control.
Well, one of the types is fighting, the other just wants to be left alone.
The people that want to be left alone have the knowledge of the history of the country, to varying degrees, and believe this many centuries journey has been just.
The other people, those that have no knowledge or interest in the historical context of the country, because the teaching process has been perverted, are flailing about seeking anchorage that is just not there. In a way, they don’t have a memory of the past to guide them into the future. Rudderless. Dangerous to all others and themselves.
This situation cannot continue indefinitely. At some point the adults must wrest control and put the criminal teachers at the top and the bawling children at the bottom and the facilitators in between to bed. This will happen willingly, or unwillingly, but it will happen. From inside effort, out outside effort. It will happen. That which cannot be, won’t.
I’ve been thinking about the inevitable and it occurred to me that the way the Colonials organized their militia regiments may have been due to the numerous Pro-British supporters they lived among.
The leaders were elected by vote after forming up, assembled with all their weapons and ready to go. Many of their Pro-British neighbors likely shied from joining them under those circumstances, to be seen ‘under arms’ and against the King.
And within a large assembly of nascent Patriot fighters, the weak sisters and the those still counselling compromise wouldn’t likely gain a leadership role.
Today the majority of Americans that voted for DJT and oppose the increasing Democrat push for full Federalization of.. well, everything… may someday soon want to assemble together for self defense and protection. But of course every assembly, including this one, will include the paid agents, the willing informers and the damn FBI. Trolls.
But the trolls may try to walk the walk but they can’t talk the talk very well, can they? When they show up on these boards they do tend to stick out. The larger the group, in person or online, of friends and neighbors and the outliers stick right out.
Do not go out of your area to hear some talker attempting to promote himself. Stick near home and abide there among friends and neighbors. As time goes on, to join with the like groups in the adjacent town or county.
Wait for the day the Antifa or BLM meet and take on The Minutemen.
By the way, those that study history are usually not listened to by those that don’t.
The Bolshevik Revolution in the West was badly mauled by Alexander Solzhenitsyn and his book “The Gulag Archipelago ” and was mortally wounded by the 1-2 hammer blows of the Reagan Revolution (economic disparity of wealth and the arms race) with the coup de grace made by its own people.
With the economic miracle of Maoist China came the hopes of the Western Communists that, yes indeed, there is hope for their Socialist Utopia. The problem is, if you look closely at that economic miracle, it wasn’t Marxism that made it work, but good ‘ol European Mercantilism – and that is losing its efficacy right before our eyes right now as internationalists are quietly pulling their investments out of China and client countries are trying to get as far away from China as possible.
And add to this the fact that every single nation that borders China hates her guts.
Outstanding. My only different observation is Maoist, is slang for Communist.
It’s interesting when you called a leftist, a straight up communist, they tend to stop, then studder, and try and explain the Left, Socialist, Maoist, Fascist,,,,,, etc etc. all titles meant to soften the understanding of Communist
John, if I have it my way, Antifa BLM will be “taken” in ones and twos, often at long range. I want the psychological attachment, of am I next, to eat em alive.
Peoples early objectives should be,,,,,,,,kill the govt sponsored Cameras. More importantly where those feeds are routed! One target VS 10.000. Just makes more sense. Here, the cameras are routed to an obscure building east of Bend Oregon.
I accidentally read this as “Our Leaders Are Moists” — these puddingheads certainly qualify for that title too.
Wearing the mask is the equivalent of waving Mao’s little red book. Now the mask is the symbol of surrender and abject obedience to the social and governmental tsunami. Not everyone in the old film clips enjoyed waving the red book, nor did those who raised the arm to Adolph, but the mass of humanity are frightened cowards. They obey and behave the same, even snitch out their own family, in order to appear in line with the new world order.
Yep. A mask wearer signals his submission, his defeat, his abject surrender. He wears a mask for the same reason that Nazis wore swastikas.
“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.”
Pretty damned good definition of “sociopath”. Good write up Mike and thank you GVDL for posting.
Very clear explanation for “what is happening . . .”
When a Communist tells you what he is going to do, he is going to do it.
Pay attention, America. Your future is already planned and action is in progress. Murder is not a crime in the furtherance of a totalitarian’s control mechanism. Communists have no conscience. Communists have no Soul. Communists have no remorse. They have a goal.
The common morality, decency, law, mercy and justice that have prevailed since Moses wrote the Decalogue are entirely ignored by committed communists. To them whatever furthers the “revolution” is moral and therefore justified. Your writing about them is exact and right on the money.
I once had a discussion with a dedicated communist. I asked him if the “revolution” needed for him to throw acid in a baby’s face, would he do it? Without hesitation he replied, “Of course.” How does one deal with such a monster as this?
You know the answer. I know the answer. We all know the answer.
Not to worry Mike, after the first one the rest are free.
There is no crime in killing monsters.
However, it is important to remember the warning provided by Nietzsche –
Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster.
The Hebrews did not become monsters by practicing genocide upon the Amalekites. Admittedly, such actions could get real tricky real fast. Best get such work done quickly and efficiently.
Communists have no conscience. Communists have no Soul. Communists have no remorse. They have a goal.****
Continuing your line of thought, watch closely who TPTB have waiting in the wings, for Brandon to nominate as Breyer’s replacement. My guess: far-left politically, of course, 45 to 48 years-of-age, female POC. Previous speculation had it, that this is how they will dump Harris as veep. We’ll see. Only thing for certain is, that whomever is nominated, nothing good for the country we love, will result.
Thoughtful, interesting, and startling. Perhaps, we are experiencing their version of the “Great Leap Forward”.
Buffalo Leap, for them.
Let’s hope it takes them off the cliff.
It can, if each of us does their part.
In fact, that’s the only reliable way to make sure.
What needs to be addressed is the puppet masters, the ones pulling the strings. They have been here a long time and have no plan on leaving anytime soon.
Well done Mike. Another trait of Maoism is its reliance on “mass movements.” Mao believed that The People were useless mouths unless they were activated and organized into controlled masses. As querying, self-determining individuals they were of no use to him.
Our leaders’ yen for national media blitzes and Mass Formation mobs is identical to Mao’s. American individualism and free inquiry is an immense obstacle to Maoists. The US Constitution cannot be allowed to stand unadulterated to these people, and our leaders are ensuring that it will not.
I had forgotten about that Maoist phrase, “useless mouths”—or “useless eaters” in some translations. Biden, Trudeau, Macron, Gates and Schwab have all said something similar. The Constitution does not have the ability to stop our march toward tyranny. None of the “elites” pay it any heed. It is not even a good speed-bump. It is a mere moldering document locked away in some museum. The anti-Federalists were dead right; the Federalists were dead wrong. We are now paying the price for their terrible folly.
Pieces of paper have not the ability to stop tyranny. There is only one method to do so that works every time. No tyrant, dictator, plutocrat or oligarch is free from its use. The fate of Ceaușescu applies to them all.
