Trump's Victory Is a Pivotal Turning Point in Human History
Donald Trump's victory in November was not only the most important election result of our lifetimes, but ranks as one of the most significant events in recorded history, on par with the French Revolution or the fall of the Berlin Wall. And I'll tell you why.
Western society is super-saturated with leftist propaganda. Politically astute non-leftists see it everywhere and complain about it incessantly -- because it is ubiquitous. In fact, most of our waking hours are spent noticing, commenting upon, getting outraged by, and then futilely combatting the endless, relentless leftist slant to everything in modern culture.
Every news broadcast. Every movie. Every lesson in every classroom. Every social signifier in public. Every poll. Every TV show. Every tribal shibboleth. In ways large and small, overt and covert, subtle and blatant, the society around us is infused with progressive ideals and agendas, whether you realize it or not.
And it's not just the entire preschool-through-Ph.D. educational system, the entire media/entertainment complex, and most interpersonal environments. Increasingly, and under Obama especially, the federal government itself has become an inescapable agent of coercive progressive propaganda imposed on us with the full force of the state.
But what is the purpose of all this propaganda?
The Goal of Indoctrination
The culture-wide brainwash we witness with chagrin every day is not designed to ignite a violent overthrow of the American political structure -- long experience has proven that violent revolutions simply don't happen in middle-class, first-world countries. We're too comfortable as a nation for that strategy to ever work. Instead, the ultimate goal of all this brainwashing and social intimidation is to make the general population VOTE as the Left wants us to vote.
Many of the progressives fighting (and seemingly winning) the "culture wars" may not even realize the ultimate purpose of their activism -- most naively think that the goal of altering America's social mores is merely to alter America's social mores, and nothing beyond that. What other objective could there be?
The answer, of course, is obvious: Political change. While it is possible, I suppose, for a thoroughly left-wing society to accept being forever ruled by a conservative government, such a state of affairs never endures for long in the real world. Indeed, one of the core values at the heart of leftism (aside from the touchy-feely cultural stuff) is that the machinery of the state exists for the very purpose of imposing by force progressive ideology on the populace. So the "culture wars" can never be fully won until leftists have a firm grip on political power.
And how do you get political power in America? You don't have a bloody revolution. Violent revolutions can only ever succeed in what were called "peasant societies" -- czarist Russia, impoverished rural China, etc., where there were large populations of oppressed peasants -- but never in industrialized countries, as Marx had incorrectly assumed.
