Read this article by Mark Citadel (h/t TWiR). Or don’t, it’s kinda long (no disrespect Mark). Instead get his gest by reading this quote:
“There is nobody in charge, no guiding hand of the mastermind. What we’re dealing with is a system which is simply perpetuating itself.”
They say the time for reactionary pontificating is over, but this is pontification-worthy. Lets be clear: I disagree with Mark. As first proposed by Jim, I think there is a guiding hand of the mastermind.
Progressivism solidified power in the US following the US civil war, solidified power in the West following the 2nd world war, and solidified power worldwide following the Cold War. It seems to me that the Cathedral has solidified its power a while ago.
Look at the pre-Trump US presidents for the past 30(!) years: Bush, Bush, Clinton, Clinton, Bush, Bush, Obama, Obama. And of course, we were supposed to have another Clinton. Seems like one big incestuous family.
You say their virtue-signalling happens spontaneously, I am seeing unified acting. The cultural war may be ‘spontaneous’, but culture is downwards from power and power is pretty non-spontaneous. For example, observe how Dutch republican leader Mark Kukke is moving heaven and earth to include Greenleft leader Ferat Klaver in his coalition and how the entire party cartel and media is ‘spontaneously’ backing him up.
Orders are given behind the scene. Often these orders happen to coalesce with leftists’ natural instincts of lying and deceiving, but the orders are given nonetheless.
Remember Obama crying over gun control? How ‘spontaneous’ would you think it was if during a 1935 speech Hitler shed a tear over the sad mistreatment of German children by Jews?
And now we might witness the rise of Overlord Zuckerberg. If the Left was spontaneous, we would expect Mark to denote some leftists, to formulate his own idiosyncratic opinion, to have some sense of individuality. But he does not. He is on the side of the globalists, explicitly so. He is new money, but gets along with old money as if he were always part of their clique. Huh.
In Citadel’s movie the protagonists are locked inside the Cube, a prison of some sorts. Supposedly no one put them there. I call bullshit on that. Of course someone put them there, and of course that person had orders to put them there.
It is us on the Right who are spontaneously signalling. Trump may have won our hearts, but he does not have the necessary organisational infrastructure to rule, yet. The Cathedral does. Our lack of organisational coherence is our weakness; we should not misproject it on the Cathedral.
