    Article is Google translated from the publication Novayagazeta.

    I think when you live in the West all your life sometimes you lose perspective on what is really happening with your own country. This is why it is always good to listen from time to time to the outsiders opinions. They are less clouded by Party politics and less than significant daily events.

    So here is the article - it's long, so I divided it in several posts:

    Lost In Three Naratives
    Infantile socialism became the new religion of the Greater West.
    By Yulia Latynina

    After the fall of the Berlin Wall, Francis Fukuyama published an article claiming that the confrontation between the two systems ended in the victory of the market and democracy.

    But the first clouds appeared on the horizon very quickly.

    First, powerful Islamist movements suddenly appeared in the Middle East and Africa, in countries where socialism had been built recently; then in Latin America, Hugo Chavez and Evo Morales began to win the elections - without any subsidies from the USSR from now on; then all the CIS countries, except for the Baltic countries and Ukraine, ceased to be democracies. But the biggest problem began when the left began to dominate the media, universities and the electoral field of the Greater West.

    The Greater West faced this problem in the 1930s, when left-wing thinkers admired the Soviet experiment.

    The Greater West also faced this problem in 1968 during the student riots, when the first young generation, who grew up after the war in an atmosphere of unprecedented freedom and prosperity, suddenly rebelled against this bourgeois freedom, saying that this freedom is in fact slavery. It is difficult to articulate what the rebels wanted, because the roots of the revolt lay not in politics, but in physiology.

    The riots of the 1960s were a typical example of the "youth bubble" and the revolt of wealthy and well-fed children against their fathers. Their main feature was infantilism. The simplest way would be to say that these students rebelled for the right to remain children forever. It was the generation of rebels in 1968 that grew up, came to universities and began to establish an increasingly leftist atmosphere there.

    WHY THE BIG WEST IS BAD
    Global Warming Narrative

    One narrative was that capitalists are literally destroying the globe. Whereas Marx argued that capitalists take away surplus value, now the new narrative was that they were producing CO 2 and that was killing the planet.

    Having boldly crossed out from the preliminary text of the IPCC report for 1990 the thesis proposed by scientists that we do not know what the climate depends on, the bureaucrats wrote in this report the words that the climate now depends on CO2 , and proclaimed this to be true, regarding which there is a scientific consensus - no less unshakable than the one that existed in the USSR on scientific communism.

    No climatologist who doubted the consensus could henceforth count on grants and was doomed to persecution. The warming fighters' goals were not hidden. "No matter if the science of global warming - a complete fake, - said back in 1998, Christine Stewart, Canadian Minister of Environment,
    -"climate change offers us a great opportunity to bring justice and equality to the world. "

    Anti-colonial narrative

    Another narrative was anti-colonial . In truth, it was invented by the main red propagandist Willie Münzenberg, the organizer of the first anti-colonial congress in Brussels in 1927. According to this anti-colonial narrative, the terrible Western civilization conquered and destroyed the beautiful and distinctive civilizations of the Middle East, Africa, South America, etc.

    “The white race is the cancer of human history,” wrote Susan Sontag in her essay. "This is the white race, its ideology, its inventions are destroying autonomous civilizations, wherever it spreads, it is the white race that has turned the ecological balance of the planet and now threatens life itself."

    The word "colonialism" referred only to the white race. If you believe the fighters against colonialism, then not a single previous civilization was engaged in conquests.

    The genocide, organized in all cities of the Ancient East from Troy to Hatzor, was not colonialism. The transformation of the Mongols into the desert of Afghanistan and Iraq was not colonialism.

    Colonialism was considered only the spread of technology and progress.

    None of the New Left asked themselves a simple question. The Middle East was once the richest, most prosperous, and most cultured part of the Roman Empire. After the Arab conquest (which, according to the left, was not colonization), its economy and ecology collapsed, Libya from the granary of the empire turned into a desert, seaports like Ephesus into ruins.

    What happened to this prosperous part of the empire, why did it lag behind Europe? How did it happen that it was Europe that colonized the Middle East, and not vice versa?

    The Eastern enlighteners asked themselves these questions. Atatürk asked himself this question. But for the new left, this question does not exist. Every historical loser in their understanding was a victim. Any winner is a criminal.

    Feminist narrative

    Another narrative was feminist. It said that white male sexists are oppressors of women. Western culture, like the culture of any pre-technological society, was indeed patriarchal. However, even in the darkest times of the Middle Ages, the West professed monogamy, and its elite had a cult of the Beautiful Lady. Even then, the position of women in the West was not close to the position of women in Muslim countries, with their total power of the male over the wife and Sharia law, which legally equates a woman with half a man. After all, there has never been polygamy or female circumcision in the West.

    However, when it came to women's rights in Islam, the passionate adherents of feminism fell silent.

    Talking about women's rights in Islam in this environment was considered bad form, Islamophobia and vestiges of colonialism.

    Narrative against slavery

    This, it would seem, was perfectly in the glorious traditions of the Enlightenment. After all, almost all cultures known to mankind had slaves, and only the Great West refused slavery. As Ayyan Hirsi Ali noted in her time, the United States is the only country on earth that fought to ban slavery. Slavery in Great Britain was banned in 1833. So it could be assumed that our new fighters against racism are following in the footsteps of William Wilberforce and Abraham Lincoln.

    Alas, this new narrative was very different from that of the abolitionists. According to him,

    any white man, even if he renounced slavery and even if he fought to abolish it, was racist.

    White racism was inevitable as an original sin. Whites were to blame for life for their racism, just as Jews were to blame for crucifying Christ. The God of the Bible punished the guilty up to the fourth generation, but the authors of this narrative punished the whites up to the thousandth
    generation.

    Every white man was a systemic racist and white privilege. “The white man who denied that he was a racist was simply in a state of denial,” explained Prof. DiAngelo.

    This narrative was absurd. After all, the United States is home to about 4.2 million black immigrants , who currently make up about 9% of its black population. For example, Nigerians are now the most successful ethnic group living in the United States. 4% of Nigerians have a Ph.D., up from 1% of the US average, and the median income of a Nigerian family is $ 62,300 per year (US average is 57,600)

    It is not entirely clear why black Nigerians move to a country of massive racism, and even more so it is not clear how exactly they manage to achieve unheard of success in it. At the same time, we do not know of any cases of mass migration of the black population from the irreparably racist USA to South Africa, deprived of white racists, Nigeria or Zimbabwe.

    However, this absurd narrative helped the left to create a new picture of Western civilization - racist, sexist, destroying nature and destroying other, much more worthy cultures. The absurdity of these narratives faded before their expediency.

    ... and the Anti-Semitic Narrative

    And, of course, anti-Semitism and a sharp rejection of Israel occupied a separate place in this narrative. According to this narrative, with rednevekovye terrorists who dreamed to destroy all the Jews in Israel, they have been a victim of the Israeli aggressor. And the reluctance of Jews to agree to be exterminated was bloody aggression and an inability to compromise.

    The main driver of this narrative was a large corps of people of "good will" who raised money for the Palestinians. After all, if you collect money, you cannot admit to yourself that you are collecting it for a totalitarian sect! You have to explain to everyone and to yourself that you are collecting them for the victims. And for Israel - with its technology, medicine and democracy - there was no need to collect money.

    And now these movements have reached their peak.

    Of course, it is tempting to attribute everything that is happening in the United States to the upcoming elections, but, alas, we are talking about a much more systemic turn. Namely - about the left revolution and the beginning of the construction of the system of infantile socialism. This is a new totalitarianism under the guise of humanity. This is such a struggle for the rights of the poor and losers that not a single rich and successful will remain.

    What is needed for such a revolution?

    Infantile Elite

    First of all - the elite, which consider themselves to be deprived. There is no revolution without the support of the elite. Without the support of the elite, there are only riots.

    There are enough representatives of such an elite in the United States now. This is the left-wing professorship, the left wing of the Democratic Party, and most of the media, and, of course, millennials.

    Millennials of the Greater West are a very interesting phenomenon.

    On the one hand, these people live in the freest and most prosperous society in human history. Opportunities have been open for them since childhood, which 30 years ago could only have dreamed of. We know people who become millionaires at 20; at the age of 15; my friends regularly report with pride that their son, after graduating from the university, "gets to start with $ 200,000 a year."

    But, surprisingly, not everyone uses these opportunities. Quite the opposite. In this incredible, prosperous, inclusive society, the average salary of a millennial is 20% lower than that of a baby boomer at the same age.

    Millennial later marries, later has children, later acquires real estate. 58% of US millennials have savings of less than $ 5,000, 53% of millennials aged 21 to 37 receive some of the money from their parents. 37% of them receive that kind of money every month.

    Millennials have a lot of debt. 81% of young families have a combined debt of $ 2 trillion. Of this, $ 1.5 trillion is in debt for education, and a significant part of this spending on education will never pay off.

    Translated, this means that a huge and unsupported bubble has inflated in the American education market. $ 1.5 trillion is more than a bubble in the subprime mortgage market.

    If a person has become a specialist in gender studies, this means that there is no market for his specialty. And even if he has an engineering degree, this does not mean that his diploma is provided. An American corporation would prefer to hire an Indian or Nigerian, who would cost half as much and work three times as much.

    To some extent, everything that happens in the United States can be described as an attempt to give this useless education provision.

    Specialists in gender, racial and other studies explain to corporations that they need to have courses on "white fragility" and consultants on diversity - well, like in the USSR, every factory had a party committee with it.

    I have already quoted prof. DiAngelo, who claims that every white American is racist. But Ms. DiAngelo is not just a theorist. Her book grew out of the practice of her seminars, at which prof. DiAngelo taught white people to be aware of their racism.

    If whites objected, they were, according to the professor, engaged in bullying, "the purpose of which was to obscure racism, protect white supremacy and restore white balance." If they repented of everything and cried, admitting to those around them the depth of their sin, that was also racism: a white has no right to cry in the presence of blacks, repenting of his racism, because then all attention is paid to him, and not to the black.

    This is not the language of science. This is the language of a destructive cult, whose members are sinking deeper and deeper into the feeling of their own sin and insignificance and are increasingly psychologically dependent on the teacher and the sessions of humiliation he arranges.

    It is the language of party purges and public self-flagellation in Maoist China.

    But first of all, it is the monetization of the skills of the lumpen intellectuals who have received the education of red commissars. Diversity, Gender and Race Commissioners. Soon, no American company, from Hollywood studios to humble yoga studios , will be able to do without the services of these valuable specialists - just as the Red Army could not fight without political workers. The abolitionists wanted to abolish the race. This new kind of fighters against racism wants to make the race forever.

    In other words, Western millennials and leftists are primarily infantile. The fantastic possibilities of the new world turned out to be the same as for the rich and spoiled child - incessant concessions from the parents.

    He chooses professions for which there is no market. Instead of sitting at work, he sits on Instagram. He flies from flower to flower and trains his zen, and when he thinks about the reasons for his failures, then he, like any infantile person, immediately discovers that everyone else is to blame: capitalists, polluters, Wall Street and the world of cash. ...

    What will the dragonfly that sang all summer say? Of course she wants to nationalize the ant!

    And if a black policeman tries to argue with these white commissioners, they will teach him how to behave .

    Newspeak

    The second thing for a successful revolution is Newspeak. And a new picture of the world.

    Imagine: you are a peaceful craftsman somewhere in the city of Ephesus, wear a wreath to the goddess Aphrodite, make statues - and suddenly a person comes to you and says that all this is a sin, but now Christ will come and put you on a golden throne and give you eternal life ... And you drop your chisel, give this preacher all your money and wait for the golden throne.

    Or you, like my great-grandfather, came from your native Latgalian swamps to the city of Peter, you work at a factory, save up for a house, for a wedding. And suddenly an agitator comes to you and says that the person who gave you the job is actually stealing your surplus value.

    You are a victim, not a worker. And your picture of the world changes by one hundred and eighty degrees.

    It is the same with the current vouk-socialism.

    An inhabitant of the modern West may, out of ignorance, believe that he is living in the best era and in the best society that humanity has ever had.

    He lives in a world where the average life expectancy is 80–84 years, and not 30 years, as in the Middle Ages. He lives in a world where the travel time from Europe to the United States is 6-8 hours, not two and a half months, as in the time of Columbus. He lives in a world where a sick heart is not a death sentence, but an indication for surgery; in a world where there is no plague or smallpox, and where COVID has led in the United States to pay all unemployed people $ 600 a week.

    War and its companions - genocide and slavery - have been the lot of humanity since ancient times (see Lawrence H. Keely. War Before Civiliziation ).

    The murder rate even among modern archaic tribes considered peaceful (for example, the Kalahari Bushmen) is 20-80 times higher than the murder rate in civilized Europe in the 1960s.

    The only thing worse than the war and the plague was hunger. Hunger was endemic for humanity in any era and in any, even developed society. From 1692 to 1694, famine in France killed 2.8 million people, or 15% of the population.

    Delhi and Central India were struck by famines in 1812 and 1824. Northwestern provinces - in 1832-1834. Hunger in India could not be ended by anything, including the market, because even the most agile ox trader could not deliver more food on the Indian off-road than the oxen themselves needed to travel more than a hundred miles. Only the railroads ended hunger, allowing the British authorities to transport tens of thousands of tons of grain in case of drought.

    All of this is no longer in the Great West. His main problem, as Noel Yuval Harari noted in his recent book , is not hunger, but obesity. No Huns will plunder McDonalds. This happened thanks to progress, science, individualism, democracy and responsibility. The sword of Damocles, which hung over humanity, disappeared. Instead, there are planes and spaceships, the Internet, stents and insulin, supermarkets and welfare benefits, alpine skiing and computers, robots and skyscrapers, scuba gear and Game of Thrones.

    But no! It turns out that this whole civilization is Sin. Because of her, the End of the World is about to happen. Industrialists do not create new things that everyone uses - they pollute the atmosphere.

    The West was destroying better cultures everywhere. Where are the Aztecs with their human sacrifices, the Maori with their cannibalism;

    The West is the most terrible civilization. He didn't even discover America!

    “Africans,” young Nicole Hanna-Jones told us, “were in America long before Columbus ... The difference is that Africans had decency and respect for human life to learn from Native Americans and trade technology with them. The pyramids of the Aztecs and the great stone heads of the Olmecs are permanent monuments of friendship between these two peoples. "

    Progress did not free the woman at all - on the contrary, all women suffer from patriarchal white males. And, of course, white Americans did not fight to abolish slavery. They are guilty of "white privilege" and "institutional racism." "White people are born devils by nature ." "The white race is the largest murderer , rapist, robber and thief in the modern world."

    We can only imagine what school textbooks will look like in this future utopia, in which Africans will discover America before Columbus and share their high technologies with the Olmecs, and where in this brave new world the hideous relic of racism called "free speech" will go.

    If you ask what is “white privilege” in Newspeak, the answer is simple. This is the whole of Western civilization. With her Shakespeare and Newtons, with her spaceships and the Internet, and her Declaration of Independence.

    I'll tell you a story.

    The Story Of Elisabeth Freeman

    This is the story of Elizabeth Freeman, a woman who was born a slave in Massachusetts in 1742. She belonged to the Ashley family. The owners treated her disgustingly. One day Mrs. Ashley attacked her daughter with a red-hot shovel. Elizabeth stood between the hostess and her daughter, and she had a deep scar for life.

    When the revolution began and the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Elizabeth was 34 years old. Elizabeth did not know how to read, but she heard that the Declaration contains lines that people are "equal, free and independent from each other and have the right to enjoy their lives, freedom and property without hindrance."

    Elizabeth left Ashley's home and sought help from Thomas Sedgwick, a friend of John Adams. When Ashley demanded the return of their property, Sedgwick and Elizabeth Freeman declared in court that, according to the Declaration of Independence, owning a person was unconstitutional.

    And they won the trial. And this court later served as the basis for the fact that Massachusetts, and after it the rest of the northern states, outlawed slavery. Elizabeth became a free woman. She became a successful and highly sought after caregiver. She lived to be 83, surrounded by great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren, one of whom was W.E.B. Dubois.

    Fast forward now to Saudi Arabia, a country that is not on the radar of the infantile socialists.

    Slavery in Saudi Arabia was formally abolished in 1962, but it continues for a very good reason: namely, the Sharia law permits slavery. Saudi diplomats sometimes even bring slaves with them to London.

    I am using the word "slave" in this case not as a metaphor.

    I am referring to the case of the slave woman Mende Nazer , a native of Sudan, whose village was raided in 1994 by Arab slave traders. They killed the adults and sold the children into slavery. Mende Nazaer was no exception. From 1983 to 2005, up to 200,000 slaves were taken into slavery in Sudan. Most of them were the Dinka, Nuer and Nuba peoples. They were captured by the Arabs in an officially declared jihad.

    The jihad was so successful and there were so many slaves that the price dropped to $ 50 per slave.

    The Arabs have not been involved in the slave trade since the 20th century. The fact is that Sharia law allows the enslavement only in the course of war, and only a pagan. Not tens and hundreds of thousands, but millions of slaves were stolen from all the coasts of Africa, their villages were burned, their parents were killed.

    The scale of the raids was such that entire coasts were emptied. Islamic countries were the largest consumers of African slaves in history, and this continued for 13 centuries. This continued into the 21st century.

    We might expect our vigilant vouk commissioners, able to expose racism even on Nike sneakers , to fight, at least slightly, against modern slavery. That they would condemn Sharia law, according to which millions of Africans have been slaves in the Maghreb for more than a thousand years.

    However, I see no protests against the modern slave trade in Africa and the Middle East. I only see protests against capitalism in the United States. I see protests against the "white privilege". From this I conclude that the "white privilege" is not Mrs. Ashley, who beats Elizabeth Freeman with a red-hot shovel. This is Thomas Sedgwick.

    The Museum of African American History in Washington DC recently released a manual describing "white" character traits. Among these features are, among other things, individualism, rational thinking, the ability to clarify cause-and-effect relationships, the ability to plan for the future and postpone the satisfaction of momentary desires in order to achieve long-term goals.

    Really, gentlemen? Are you really going to abolish individualism and the scientific method? What is this strange racism on the contrary who denies other races the ability to plan for the future and the ability to take responsibility for failure and success?

    It is easy to see that the training manual of our fighters against racism enumerates not the traits of a "white", but the traits of an adult. From the point of view of this training manual, a Nigerian American woman who has been engaged in biomedicine since the age of 11 is "white", and the idiot WASP, who at thirty lives on her parents' money, is "black."

    "White privilege" really existed. This was a great privilege in the 19th century. - to be white and a man somewhere in the USA, not a woman somewhere in a Turkish harem.

    Just like it is now a privilege to be American. But privileges are not revoked - they are extended. Magna Carta was a privilege for the barons. It was not canceled. It was extended to the rest of the population. If it were canceled, China would have turned out of England.

    Individualism, rational thinking, and independence were indeed the privilege of the white man in the 19th century. But women did not gain rights because they abolished the individualism and independence of men. And due to the fact that they themselves became independent.

    As the brilliant economist and thinker Thomas Sowell (by the way, black) noted in his Discrimination and Disparities , in no human society that has ever existed, including the present-day United States, individual economic benefits were not distributed in strict accordance with individual merit. The problem is that the cons of this unjust society are far less than the cons of the utopia that the infantile socialists promise to build.

    You can believe us Russians in this matter. We are experts. We lived in this utopia.

    Activists

    The third thing that is necessary for the success of the revolution is intolerant activists who are able to impose programs on society that are absurd from the point of view of common sense, but strengthen the status of activists.

    People rarely unite around intelligent things. People are much more likely to unite around destructive memes. Say "the sky is blue" - and you will not build a sect of your followers around you. But say, "The sky is yellow, and everyone who says otherwise is racist," and you have a great chance.

    A typical example of this is the requirement destructive meme defund the police ( «police strip means") and cancel the police ( «dissolve police" ) ;

    or the Congress BREATH Act , which requires, among other things, the closure of all federal prisons and the payment of reparations to drug addicts and prostitutes.

    From the point of view of common sense, this requirement is absurd. If the police are removed in the black quarters of inner cities, where up to 25% of young people have criminal experience, then the power in these quarters will belong to the gangs. It will definitely not improve people's situation. If the police are bad (as, for example, in Russia), then they should not be abolished, but reformed . The police in Georgia were terrible, but Saakashvili did not abolish it, but reformed it. If he canceled it, then thieves would rule Georgia.

    However, the requirement to abolish the police does not appeal to common sense. It appeals to the infantile psyche - the psyche of a person who never takes responsibility for his actions and always puts it on others. From the point of view of this demand, everyone is to blame for Michael robbing the stall - the environment, society, teachers and the cops who detained him. Only one person is not to blame - Michael. He is a victim. Cops are criminals.

    In addition, this requirement allows the organization that put it forward to consolidate its leadership position.

    Three important features of the modern black community in the United States are a high proportion (75%) of children growing up without fathers (in 1965, before the advent of the welfer system, this proportion was 25%), a high proportion (41%) of people sitting on a welfer , and the low proportion ( 18% of eighth graders ) of people who can read fluently, caused by the special culture of inner cities, where pupils in schools often not only refuse to learn "white sciences", but also prohibit those who want to do so.

    It is easy to see that if the black quarters are controlled by gangs, then all these features will only intensify. Black career opportunities will decrease and racial inequality will increase. The relationship between social groups trained in the "white sciences" on the one hand, and a social group controlled by gangs, on the other, will become similar to the relationship between Jews and Palestinians, and BLM will take the same place as Hamas - that is, a place an organization that sets itself deliberately impracticable goals in order to reduce the society it controls to a state of poverty and totalitarian consensus.

    In this upside down world, those who have committed crimes are victims. Anyone who tries to stop them is criminals.

    This position is so insane that, to paraphrase Thomas Sowell, you have to be an intellectual to believe in it.

    They don't believe in it.

    Despite the intensified propaganda, only 29% support the financing of the police . 70% of Americans don't think BLM has improved race relations.

    Two-thirds of the British support British Prime Minister Johnson, who refused to kneel.

    But the voices of those who are against this new orthodoxy are not heard. According to the new totalitarian political correctness, which replaced the outdated “racist” concept of freedom of speech, freedom of speech applies only to those who preach dogma, and this dogma, like any orthodoxy, fluctuates along with the party line. What was mainstream yesterday turns out to be a terrible heresy today.

    Colin Kapernik vigilantly spotted racism in the Betsy Ross flag on Nike sneakers. Judging by the polls, as many as 3% of the population agree with him . But Kapernik's vigilant denunciation was enough for Nike to recall the product, and we immediately heard on MSNBC from prof. Dyson that the flag under which the Americans fought for their independence is an analogue of the Nazi swastika and the flaming crosses of the Ku Klux Klan.

    71% of respondents choose the slogan “All lives mean” as reflecting their views, and only 29% choose “Black lives mean”. Despite this, Wallmart pulled t-shirts with the words “All Lives Means ” under pressure from new Red Guards.

    All these activists are in an absolute minority, just like the Islamists were in an absolute minority in Syria, even in areas captured by ISIS (recognized as a terrorist organization). But this minority was ready to defend their views, and very quickly it turned out that if the woman did not cover her face, she would be killed. And everyone began to cover their faces.

    In prosperous America, physical violence is not necessary. It is enough to threaten your wallet. A fatwa handed down by progressive mullahs can easily be worth the work.

    Freedom of speech, enshrined in the First Amendment, has turned to smoke. 62% of Americans are afraid to openly express their political beliefs. 49% of them are African American.

    The campaign to "rob the police of funds in retaliation for the death of George Floyd" is a classic example of what might be called totalitarian humanism. In Russia quite recently there was a very similar campaign: I mean the campaign to ban the adoption of Russian children by Americans because of the death of Dima Yakovlev and the "law of scoundrels."

    This campaign was also based on a completely real fact: on the death of a small innocent child, whom his adoptive father had left to suffocate in the back seat of a car. This fact was true, but the campaign itself was a monstrous lie. She was a lie because the case of Dima Yakovlev was not typical. No, Americans do not regularly kill their adopted children. Quite the opposite, they provide them with upbringing, education and love that they would never have received in Russia. The Scoundrel's Law was not a law that saved children. He was the law that killed them.

    In addition, this campaign was a lie, because its organizers did not pursue the goals that were indicated by them. They did not care about the children at all. They wanted to avenge the Magnitsky list.

    The same is the case with the demands of the BLM, an organization whose founders directly call themselves "Marxist organizers" and directly point to the abolition of capitalism and the abolition of the nuclear family as targets on their websites .

    No, the death of George Floyd is not typical. A black criminal has almost half the chance of being killed when detained as a white criminal. This chance is constantly falling (by 26.6% over the past six years). But the chance for a police officer to be shot by a black criminal during the Trump presidency, on the contrary, increased by 18% compared to Obama's second term .

    But, like all the other examples we have given, this slogan does not appeal to logic, but to infantile character traits, not to an adult, but to a child.

    The man was killed! Come on! Whoever dares to object is a racist!

    All of these activists and organizations operate on an algorithm that has proven successful for Palestinian terrorists. All of them are aggressors posing as victims. All of them make crazy and anecdotal accusations that are intended to split society, and they all, when objected, accuse opponents of wanting to split.

    They all position themselves as fearless protesters against the foundations, but, interestingly, their real status is much closer to that of stormtroopers or red guards.

    Protests and pogroms in support of BLM, by some happy coincidence, took place exactly in those cities where the left mayors defend the pogromists. The leftist press writes about them as heroes. We heard about the pogroms, that, firstly, they do not exist, secondly, that they are arranged by white suprematists who want to discredit the protest, and, thirdly, that this is a justified response to the violence of the federals. The impression is that the journalists of the left-wing American media were trained at the Russian Foreign Ministry.

    Do you know how the AP recently described the arson of the court demonstrators and the attack on the police station? Peaceful demonstration intensified. "The peaceful demonstration intensified." Medinsky with his "incorporation of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia" nervously smokes on the sidelines.

    An important feature of infantile socialists is that they always demand everything only from others. Others are always to blame. Others are racists, polluters, and patriarchal white males. They must pay reparations.

    The wonderful new world of vouk-socialism should be built at someone else's expense.

    Jews were the most oppressed people in Europe. They were blamed for plague and smallpox. Hitler burned 6 million Jews in ovens. However, the Jews did not demand the abolition of the police force after World War II. They simply asked that they have their own territory, where they themselves can build whatever they want.

    It would seem that infantile socialists could demand the same thing: their own territory, where they could realize all their ideas about the abolition of dirty energy, police and racism. Moreover, many American cities and states are in the hands of their associates. Instead, their demands are always total.

    The world pays a huge price for the infantilism of the West. Turkey, which until recently confidently followed the path of secularization, is turning back into the Ottoman Empire. In Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Syria - wherever girls in the 60s wore short dresses, they now wear hijabs. Why not? If infantile socialists themselves tell what a serious historical injury the West has inflicted on the Middle East with its terrible progress and human rights, then why should Islamic fanatics of all stripes disagree with this?

    In Egypt, 97% of women underwent female circumcision, and infantile feminists do not care about this. This is not a white male who touched the girl's knee and thus ruined her life!

    Fighting the white male is easy and safe.

    No one cares about the logs in someone else's eye - all the best forces of advanced humanity are busy fighting with a straw in their own.

    History repeats itself.

    The communists who seized power in Russia lost the Cold War. But they have a new chance - in the rich and infantile West. This new totalitarianism does not seek to completely destroy capitalism, because it has been taught by bitter historical experience and knows that if the market does not produce, then it will have nothing to redistribute.

    But he wants to take tithes from the market. He aspires to become the new ruling party or church. Commissioners of this church will be with every corporation. A step to the right (but not to the left) will mean ruin. The giant ghettos created by the welfer (which, of course, will be distributed by the New Communist Church and the gangs), will be an eternal source of social tension, humbled by more and more handouts.

    The gigantic bubble of useless skills acquired by the serial victims of the system in left-wing universities will finally be filled with very real money content.

    And what about democracy? Oh, well, it's simple. Democracy - in the sense of elections (not in the sense of a person's right to their opinion) - will remain. In Iran, there is democracy.

    And no chance of being elected from a heretic.

    End

    Great article. Translation isn't perfect, but well worth the read. Spot on analysis of what's happening right now in this country.

    Nothing new in all of that. For example, 50 years ago there was this warning:

    Professor Andrew Hacker wrote in The End of the American Era (1970), "What was once a nation has become simply an agglomeration of self-concerned individuals. Despite the assumptions made by jabbering politicians and journalists, the United States has become a territory filled with bewildered individuals who have in common only a geographical area inhabited by incompatible races. Our history as a nation has reached its end because the American people have never developed a feeling for history.
    "We have been so crazed by the debasing superstitions of "democracy" and "humanitarianism," our minds have been so thoroughly sabotaged by the witch-doctors in the public schools, and our society has been so rotted by feckless sentimentality that we have reached a juncture at which it becomes pointless to call for rehabilitation or renewal...we have ceased to be a nation because Americans no longer have the will to be one."
