Dumas said that you shouldn’t rape history unless you intend to conceive a bastard. The left has taken this to heart and is trying to create a bastard that will rule us with a rod of iron.
It won’t take. Just like the leftist/Marxist illusion is a child of the mass production era, that era is passing and ushering in more customized times, more individual times.
This is good, because honestly the era of mass production and mass behavior encouraged us to see humans as widgets. Humans are not widgets, and we haven’t done well under this regime.
The Twentieth Century was worse than the fourteenth for soaking the Earth with blood.
The left will have trouble putting their boot on our necks again, now we’ve tasted freedom. They’re trying, but it’s the spasms of a dying beast and a dying way of life.
I’m not saying they won’t win temporary battles, but every win will only lead to greater defeats. That’s the way of changing times.
Be not afraid and neither be you nostalgic. Instead, turn your minds to ways to hasten the change over to a more humane and individual-oriented age. There is work to be done. The faster and easier the transition, the less likely we’ll have to wade through rivers of blood.
Let’s work each in our own way, even if it’s just helping the young — snatching brands from the fire — or writing, or whatever we can do. Even cleaning the house (my work today, since it’s gotten insane) helps, because it creates a calmer environment for you and others.
And no matter how small the effort, remember it ripples.
Now go work. Be not afraid. They won’t snatch history. That’s an act of desperation. And they won’t snatch the future away, either. That remains to be built, and frankly they suck at building.
In the end we win they lose. Go.
