The great political and cultural struggle in the 20th century, as the story goes, was a three way battle between Fascism, represented by National Socialist Germany, Fascist Italy and to an extent imperial Japan versus Communism, consisting mostly of the Soviet Union and Red China, versus liberal democracy embodied by the United States and our vassal states in Western Europe. The Fascist/Communist alliance came apart quickly as the two movements were incompatible, leading to a shaky Democracy/Communist alliance that combined to defeat Fascism and then just as quickly it devolved into the Democracy vs Communism struggle known as the Cold War from 1945 to 1989 when the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Union followed close behind leaving China as the sole (overt) Communist power in the world.
That is the story many of us grew up with. The truth was far less clear cut. Still it is the best framework to view what happened at the end of the 20th century and what we are now seeing unfold in the first quarter of the 21st century. As the 20th century ended, the liberal democracies of the West were triumphant. China was isolated and backward. Russia was modernizing and adopting a free market system. The troublesome Germans of the early 20th century were replaced by an emasculated, self-loathing people who were matched in their weakness by their former foes in the United Kingdom. The French were always pussies. The lead America had as a result of boundless natural resources and an untouched homeland compared to ravaged Europe and Asia seemed insurmountable.
Then the wheels started to come off. Americans grew fat and indolent. We stopped making and started consuming. At the risk of sounding anti-Semitic, our cosmopolitan elites began to monetize economic activity, sapping more and more in wild profiteering while adding no value. We started to hear about junk bonds, leveraged buyouts, hedge funds, insider trading.
The Federal leviathan grew and grew, leeching the productivity of the rest of the country to support a growing class of Federal mandarins who served no purpose other than the creation of rules that they would enforce at great cost to us and great profit to them.
Culturally we grew nihilistic and dark. The grunge era of "rock" took off. Instead of sex, drugs and rock n roll, we got Nirvana. Gone was Father Knows Best, The Andy Griffith Show and Leave It To Beaver replaced by Married With Children and The Simpsons.
Racially the American people changed. It took most of the 20th century for WASP America to integrate the Irish, Polish and Italian migrants. The new migrants? They are never going to assimilate because they are too different and they have no interest in assimilating to what they have been told is a "racist" society. They are here to loot, nothing else. Yes, there are exceptions but they are just that, exceptions.
There is nothing new in that information. What is new is the shape of the political and economic world that we see unfolding. The 2020 election was ostensibly a referendum on Orange Man Bad but that is just at the surface level, in the shallow end of the pool where the overwhelming majority of people splash around. Underneath it was the end stage of the conflict between the older order of national identity and the new, far darker world of an technocratic oligarchy.
For the more politically astute, depending on where you fall on the political spectrum, our current struggle is either a fight between the forces of freedom and liberty versus a resurgent communism -or- a fight for diversity and justice against resurgent fascism.
Those are pretty neat and clear-cut categories but I still think they are only getting at the surface level. What is rising across the world is not really communism, although it looks a lot like it in many ways, nor is it really fascism despite some similarities. It is rather something very new and very dark.
Whereas Marxism was, at least from the standpoint of philosophy and rhetoric if not practice, centered on a class struggle, what we see unfolding today makes little pretense of being about class, at least in the sense of being a movement for the workers. The new global order is going to be really the opposite of that stated goal, with workers being exploited rather than exalted and elite oligarchs ruling over all of the rest of humanity. "Workers of the world unite!" has been replaced with "oligarchs of the world exploit!". Look at America as the primary example of this shift. Several decades ago, the Left pretended to be all about the working class but from around 2008 on the Left has abandoned the working class as being too White and too difficult to control and focused instead on racial minorities who tend to be poor and resentful toward Whites and on other various disaffected subgroups. Many of former Vice-President Biden's first acts were aimed directly at the working class by shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline and banning fracking on Federal land, while at the same time making gestures for the degenerate class by pandering to trannies and signing additional executive orders addressing "racial inequality".
Fascism generally has a nationalistic focus with a single autocratic leader and a blended economy that includes a great deal of state and corporate intermingling with the focus on benefitting the people of that particular nation. The Trumpian economic rhetoric included some aspects including an "America first" economic focus and protectionist trade policies but that was about it. Fascism doesn't really describe what the new order is all about. Rather than a state-corporate cooperative effort that seeks to advance the wellbeing of the people of that nation-state, we instead have a soulless, stateless monstrosity that seeks only profit wherever it can be found. The government provides the legal means for corporate exploitation of workers and in turn the corporate world funnels buckets of cash to elected officials while also acting as the enforcement arm via censorship and increasingly by forcing dissidents outside of the boundaries of polite society.
The new order, exemplified by the "Great Reset", is neither Fascism nor Communism but instead somehow manages to combine all of the worst aspects of both Marxism and Fascism into a new technocratic oligarchy that is more properly seen as neo-feudalism (see: Like Feudalism Without The Peasants). In fact, it often seems that rather than seeing workers as the bedrock of a nation, regular working class people are seen as not only superfluous but harmful and in dire need of pruning. The coming AI and robotics revolution will not only make workers irrelevant but also a burden.
Make no mistake, once the global South and non-White third world populations have served their purpose in eradicating Whites, they will be in line for their own extermination. The ghouls pulling the levers like Bill Gates are big fans of eugenics on an unimaginable scale, with mass extinction of entire populations and global depopulation a primary goal. The framework is already in place with the "climate change" hysteria. Simply torpedoing the world's economy won't be enough to "save the planet", the only way to do that will be to eliminate a significant chunk of the people. People like Bill Gates and the rest of the globalist oligarchs don't have any interest in living in a neighborhood full of Africans and mestizos, so you can be sure they have little interest in sharing the planet with them beyond the bare minimum needed to keep the lights on.
China is the rough draft for this new global model. The Chinese economy is enormous, 2nd only to the U.S. in terms of GDP with over $14 trillion in economic activity.
But when you look at per capita GDP? The U.S. is 5th behind four European nations with a per capita GDP of $65,000 but China is way down the list:
Somewhere around a billion people are in abject poverty in China while the state runs businesses that have hundreds of thousands of employees and billions in revenue. A small group of people get very rich with the blessing of the Communist Party. The rest? Not so much.
With a tiny number of incredibly wealthy oligarchs, a small middle class and around a billion poor people who are little more than slave labor for the state, this is the vision the architects of the Great Reset have for the entire world and especially the West. The vast majority of people crammed into our cities living at a subsistence level but being provided with modern bread and circuses in the form of streaming entertainment and "free" food, eking out an existence while the wealthiest among us get richer and with a technocratic Mandarin class acting as a thin buffer between the ultra-wealthy and the desperately poor. They are counting on delivery Taco Bell, crappy Netflix shows and legal pot to keep the population in check. They are probably right.
Those who step outside of the lines and buck the plan? They are getting stomped with an iron boot. The online troll who went by Ricky Vaughn is being criminally prosecuted for sharing memes. Yes, you read that right.
He might go to jail because of memes.
Gun control is at the top of their agenda to keep the peasants from sticking their heads on spikes. Likewise the incoming Patriot Act 2.0 which will follow the inevitable false flag attack that will drastically expand government surveillance with the added bonus of corporate America acting as snitches and informants for the government. Think that won't happen? It already is.
Despite decrying censorship when it was happening to them last year, when Donald Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook earlier this month, the left praised the move by big tech. “Facebook is a private company and can do what they want,” the pro-censorship hypocritical crowd chanted ad nauseum through the digital ether after bad orange man was silenced. But as we have said time and again, Facebook being private is simply not true.
Now, however, Facebook has made an unscrupulous Faustian bargain with the federal government which should eliminate all doubt once and for all. They are now willfully handing over private messages of Trump supporters who talked about the events at the capitol on January 6.
Social media is the government spying on you and censoring thought without having to go through the hassle of following the Constitution. The best part? You give them the right and the means to repress you voluntarily and make is easier for your neighbor to snitch. The East German commie Stasi couldn't have dreamed of a better system.
Yes, the antifa/black Lives Matter movement is a Marxist front so it is appropriate to use that language to describe them but it is critical to understand that there are two forms of Leftist ideology in America and anti/bLM is only the visible, openly violent form (more on this in a future post).
What we need to start to wrap our minds around is that the struggle we are in now isn't the same struggle from the 20th century. While many of the players are the same and the goal of global domination remains the same, the means, philosophy and rhetoric have changed. We need to fight the enemy as they are now, not as they were last century.
We aren't up against Soviet style Communism and we certainly are not dealing with fascism. This is a new war with the same enemy but this time they have found what appears to be a winning formula and the number of people standing up to them is shrinking.
First and foremost, you must know your enemy to fight them.
