I’d never checked out Ace of Spades’ twitter feed before. Gosh that’s funny. This particular tweet storm (below) is not really funny.
I’d never read or heard those quotes from Marx before, would have assumed them to be more Lenin’s style (or Alinsky’s). Just goes to show ya – the roots are in Marx. (I might go further back to Rousseau…)
An anti-collective coalition has disadvantages: 1, the coalition is based on a negative, opposition to collectivism.
1a. which means there is no real positive central politics, just an opposition to collectivism, and we don’t all agree on all oppositions…
Collectivists are always going to be pretty good at collectivizing and collective action. They are, by nature, herders.
Meanwhile, the conservative movement resembles the evil Enterprise in Mirror, Mirror, where advancement is through assassination.
The conservative movement is literally reactionary in the sense that it is a counter-reaction to socialism and cultural Marxism.
It is reactionary in the sense that it is the socialists who have been busy bees since 1932 pushing America towards their model.
We have always reacted to that, saying: Stop it.
But they never stop, ever. And if you beat them at the ballot box, they just infest the judiciary. Karl Marx on the critique of the state: “Its essential pathos is indignation, its essential work is denunciation.”
“Criticism dealing with this content is criticism in a hand-to-hand fight, and in such a fight the point is… to strike him.” — Marx
He laid it all out, and they followed his game-plan: You simply attack society at every moment, denouncing with indignation, until it falls.
Honestly, I think America is done. I think Obama did it. I hate to give him the credit, but he murdered America. He won.
On the plus side, you can look like a first world country for a while, living off past accumulated capital. Britain managed it for years.
They say socialism works, until you run out of other people’s money. But if you’re ruthless enough, you can extract an awful lot from them.
