I was initially uncertain of whether to publish this, until I saw a recent post by Boxer in which he made an observation within the context of our post-modern feminism culture, that explains much of what I’ve wanted to say regarding the current political situation:
At this stage of our historical development, we should be working alone and in small groups, rather than trying to take political power for ourselves. In time, the tides of history will shift, the weltgeist will take a new shape, and we can come together and reclaim what’s ours. Until then, my boys, you are partisans. Your job is not to show yourselves in the open. Your job is not to do big stuff. Your job is to do small things, which will prepare the way for those who will come later. (bold emphasis added).
This is sound advice, and the reason why should be evident to anyone watching the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal and #metoo campaign unfold.
In years past, I’ve engaged in some real life political activism and attended a few rallies, but I never held great fondness for them. The main reason had to do with practicality. Having personally witnessed the birth and fall of the Tea Party movement, I understand the futility of grass roots activism that ultimately centers on winning elections. I’ve also found them somewhat emasculating; unless these rallies lead to direct action, much of it feels like grandstanding.
Now, some might argue that they serve a useful purpose in allowing people to meet and network in real life rather than talk pointlessly online. Fair enough.
However, I also believe these rallies and protests give the enemy ideal opportunity to cause trouble, and place participants in potentially dangerous scenarios. It’s where leftists can engage in a bait-and-switch tactic most frequently used by Antifa in which they try to goad you into attacking them while remaining close enough to get a sucker punch in if the opportunity arises before they quickly vanish into their crowd of fellow basement dwellers.
As Charlottesville proved, activism puts a bull’s eye on your chest and provides an excuse for persecution. As General Gates learned in The Patriot and Eamon De Valera in Michael Collins, you don’t openly confront a stronger, superior force and expect to triumph.
With this in mind, consider what is taking place within Hollywood (and spreading swiftly into other venues). It wasn’t an alternative media source that triggered this; it was the New York Times, the epitome of mainstream media, running a piece on Harvey Weinstein. The destruction of the careers of numerous actors, directors, producers, and other bigwigs were carried out mainly by their peers.
In other words, Hollywood is collapsing due to its own unstable, corrupt nature by elements all within the post-feminist ideology.
It is a similar situation with many other institutions in the country. Whether it’s the national debt, the student loan bubble, the mass importation of immigrants that consume more than they produce, marriage 2.0, trillions in unfunded liabilities, an aging national infrastructure, their current trajectories are not sustainable.
Sooner or later, they will collapse on their own, whether there is anyone there “opposing” them or not.
This makes a strong case for individual and local activity among those such as myself, and in many ways that is what I have been doing for a while. I’ve been focused on wholly nonpolitical interests and hobbies. I’ve placed myself in an environment so that if bad things happen, they’re happening elsewhere.
There is nothing to gain by sticking one’s head above the trench to get it blown off by a sniper if you know that the enemy line will eventually break due to poor morale and internal squabbling.
I certainly have my opinions still intact, but I don’t concern myself with what is going on unless it affects me directly and there is something I can do to avoid the damage.
At some point this same sort of institutional collapse will occur with other entities, whether it’s higher education, the U.S. economy or even the military and the federal government. They don’t need my involvement for that to happen.
The Reckoning is already set in stone; the only question to be answered is when it will occur, and nobody can know that for certain.
With that in mind, perhaps it’s wise to keep a low profile and avoid attracting attention and, if possible, let the political battle be fought by others who either won’t or are unable to withdraw.
The fire has been kindled. Things fall apart. The center cannot hold.
But don’t shoot. Let ’em burn.
