"The World is progressing, the future is bright and no one can change this general trend of history. We should carry on constant propaganda among the people on the facts of world progress and the bright future ahead so that they will build confidence in victory." "On the Chunking Negotiations" Selected Works, Vol. IV, Mao Tse Tung (Oct 17, 1942)

"Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold...the best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity." "The Second Coming," by William Butler Yeats

Do we in America consent-to and participate-in our own destruction? Think "Hegelian Dialectic" and "Consensus" — the methodical-alliance designed to bring about the desired cultural transformation 1 referred to by Marx, Lenin, and Trotsky as "social democracy."

The above trinity and their consequent acolytes contrast their "true" collective, scientifically-determinist, and ultimately Stateless, democracy of all the people with the plutocratically- exploitative faux freedom they denounce in the Western democracies.

The reason "their" method is so successful is because their embedded cadres have saturated America in it, and only a very small minority of usually capable persons in this nation get beyond superficial study/understanding of what is going on — essentially an autodidactic study because the citizens have cautiously concluded that the agenda of State education and information in all its forms is untrustworthy.

Those who do understand and attempt to expose the methodical-alliance are singled out for character assassination and ridicule; few have courage enough to risk ridicule. Better for one to choose to either forget all about it and to amuse it out of one's conscious mind, or to surrender to the enemy camp.

Virtually everyone with whom I speak knows that imminent destruction is afoot in the U.S. Very few seem able to put words to their fear. The enemy creates an environment of bewilderment simply by promising one thing, doing what seems to you to be the very opposite of what they promised, and then, what is most mystifying of all, they insist that they did exactly as they promised, while the choirs of their faithful chant "Amen!"

When irrationality impersonates reason, the result is emotional and cultural disarray. And, then, the "centre" can no longer hold.

Sound "Manchurian?" It is. The method has been proven to be effective — by denying "truth" and making everything out to be "opinion." Hegelians will take a truthful thesis, challenge it with an opinion — plausible antithesis — call for a consensus, and then, by skillful navigating, the director-facilitator guides the "crew" into a synthesis, the intent of which is to move the culture in the ideologically desired direction.

It works, literally, like a charm. And, it seems so democratically reasonable! The great irony is that a purported — i.e., falsely claimed — desire to establish a synthetic truth actually denies The Truth.

Jesus told us that when even a child is able to understand; the "wise fool" — the perennial sophomore — appears to have been disabled. How can this be? The only answer I can give is "I believe it's attributable to the fact that a child hasn't reached the age of matured arrogance, but the perennial sophomore has."

The educated 3 self-actualizedare certain that they possess a transcendent awareness, and they want to display their superiority. The apt word, which combines an attitude of supreme self-confidence and bold, shameless effrontery, is the Yiddish word"chutzpah."

1 Cultural transformation theoryis a theory proposed by scholar RianeEisler that there was once a "partnership model" of civilization which eventually gave way to a "dominator model." This partnership model was based on an equal partnership between males and females in society, as opposed to the dominator model, which is male dominated. Eisler proposes that the original direction in the mainstream of our cultural evolution was toward partnership but that, following a period of chaos and almost total cultural disruption, a fundamental shiftoccurred . The greater availability of data on Western societies (due to the ethnocentric focus of Western social science) makes it possible to document this shift in more detail through the analysis of Western cultural evolution.
