Many who are old enough, may still remember the anti-war protests of the 60s and early 70s. The Left, in those days, to the naïve masses, particularly on university campuses and within the Marxist captured Union Movement, seemed to be a movement for justice, peace and stability in the world.
Those demonstrations against uranium mining and the proliferation of nuclear weapons, were certainly passionate causes. But to the less ideologically possessed, these anti-war campaigns and the spread of their propaganda, were not telling the whole truth. Amidst all the emotive rhetoric about the imminent threat of nuclear war and how the forces of the evil West were driving it, the Australian and International Left, mostly remained mute about the Soviet Union, China and North Korea, all of whom had substantial nuclear arsenals, and whose ideological positions were aligned to the International Left, which explains why the Left's anti-nuclear propaganda was so one-sided and biased. And if anyone, at the time, dared to point out this anomaly, they were automatically branded as war mongers, reactionaries, Nazis, or "capitalist running dogs."
It was only later, after the news of oppression and genocide escaped the iron curtain of lies and propaganda - that claimed the lives of over a hundred million people – and made its way into the West, that the Marxist totalitarians had to admit what a murderous bunch of lunatics their comrades had been.
Many Western intellectuals, including those in Australia, were at the time, "true believers" in the Leftist cause, and before the bad news reached the West, made regular pilgrimages to China and Russia to pay homage to their glorious leaders. Although these bouffons were momentarily embarrassed by the history of starvation, oppression, torture and mass murder, which seemed to be the hallmarks of those regimes they supported, this bloodbath wasn't enough to stop the march of their fellow totalitarians towards Utopia.
Soon, the comrades found excuses for the past, blaming misinterpretations of "doctrine" on the excesses of communist leaders. So, it was Gramsci, the Frankfurt School and the French Post-modernist Left who began to articulate a new "strategy" by which they hoped to impose Marxism on the institutions of the West, a strategy which has been enormously successful, and just like the old one, is built on an edifice of lies, fake history, fake science, oppression and institutionalized racism.
Today, when the entire Western World is almost completely under the control of the Left, we are beginning to see, once again, the ugly face of totalitarianism emerge. When the World Health Organization, for example, is controlled by the Pro-Chinese Communist Party Maoist, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus; when the United Nations is controlled by António Guterres: a Marxist and former leader of the Antifa aligned Trotskyite inspired International Socialists, and when the European Union's strongest faction is The Party of European Socialists, and when many of the EU's top leaders regularly attend the town of Triers in Germany to celebrate Karl Marx's birthday (Express. Apr 28, 2018).
In relation to these facts, it is very difficult to maintain the illusion that the world is controlled by evil Western capitalist reactionaries, particularly when the biggest corporations and financial institutions on the face of the earth have thrown their weight behind the totalitarians. Add to this, the role played by the World Economic Forum and how many of today's Western leaders and politicians are its graduate doctrinaires, working hard to implement its programs through their respective governments, beyond the mandates they were elected to fulfil. Justin Trudeau and Jacinda Ardern, being two of the most toxic, of many, many more, who all lean radically Left and can be found in every facet of government, business and the educational faculties, promoting and enforcing radical left-wing causes. As for the United States: the Biden Administration is even more radically Left than Obama. With almost half the core members of the Democratic Party, (including Ocasio Cortez) being "card carrying" members of the Socialist Party of America, an overtly Marxist organization.
Let's now turn to the war in Ukraine, between the traditionalist Russian sociopath Vladimir Putin and the progressive Marxist controlled power bloc of the Euro-American Left (and its Green/XR and other radical allies). A war that seems to have no end, and with each day grows more threatening, not only to the people of the West and Russia – but the whole planet!
It is pointless to enter into an argument about the rationale for such a war. No doubt both sides can find justification to continue the ongoing slaughter of the other. The left wing legacy media seems to find excuses every day as to why this war should escalate and are actively ramping it up, with billions of dollars worth of armaments shipped to Ukraine, to which Putin has responded more aggressively, and just recently, threatened the use of nuclear weapons. But none of this seems to have deterred the Establishment Left, who are also starting to rationalize the use of nuclear weapons.
This present scenario is equally, if more radical and dangerous in terms of bringing us closer to nuclear Armageddon than the 60s. You would think that such a threat would see the Left again rise up in the streets, protesting against the destruction of the human race, but the streets are empty and the campuses and unions are mute. While the world totters on the edge of a leftist induced nuclear holocaust, the biggest concern of many students - and one they seem to favour - is the reintroduction of racial segregation, the suppression of free speech and religious freedom, and of course, the one that preoccupies many: the belief that biological men can have babies, and if they feel like it, can become women, and vis-à-vis.
All this of course begs the question: why is there no protests by the Left - particularly the Green Left - against the nuclear threat, which in terms of magnitude, would be a million times more destructive to the environment than CO2 emissions? The answer is quite simple: because the Left are now the dominant power elite – the Establishment.
If there is a symbol that defines the Left today, it is the three wise monkeys: a Japanese pictorial maxim, embodying the proverbial principle "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil". In other words, they don't see it, don't hear it and don't speak about it. In terms of the Marxist controlled US Democratic Party, this seems to be the rule, at least, it was, up until quite recently, when democratic Senator Tulsi Gabbard decided to defect, to look Evil in the eye, to listen as it continually lies, and to hear its war cries from the pulpits of government and mainstream media. The Former Democratic House member and presidential candidate then decided she'd had enough:
“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue and stoke anti-white racism, actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms that are enshrined in our Constitution,” Gabbard, 41, said in a searing video posted on Twitter.
Gabbard, who gave up her House seat representing Hawaii to run for president in 2020, condemned the progressive party for being “hostile to people of faith and spirituality” while demonizing the police and protecting criminals “at the expense of law-abiding Americans". (The New York Post, October 11, 2022).
However, the major reason she gave for her defection, which was overlooked by most of the lying legacy media, was her belief that Joe Biden and the Left are actively "pushing" the United States "to the brink of a nuclear holocaust." Speaking of the leftist elite, she elaborated:
"...they may have their bunkers where they'll be safe," Gabbard continued. "But we the American people will have no shelter, no place to go, no place to hide and face the consequences that could destroy all of humanity and the world as we know it" (Newsweek 10/11/22).
Gabbard's concerns seem justified, particularly when the world received news recently that Putin has just...
"ordered Russia's first mobilisation since World War Two and backed a plan to annex swathes of Ukraine, warning the West he was not bluffing when he said he'd be ready to use nuclear weapons to defend Russia "(Reuters. 21/10/2022).
I suspect, all things considered, that the establishment Left and its radical allies, have become so batshit crazy, that they have lost all objectivity and now stand paused - like Putin - with their fingers on the nuclear button. But what else can we expect from a bunch of Marxist apparatchiks who can't even define what a woman is? Would it be too much to worry about, as Gabbard seems worried, that if goaded a little more, these irrational lunatics would also not hesitate to push the nuclear button, believing they were advancing the cause of equity and LGBTQ+ rights? Oddly enough, they would be right about that. I mean, there is nothing quite like a good nuclear war to level the playing field.
And let us, heaven forbid, imagine the destruction after a thermo-nuclear war. And that somewhere in a bunker, a handful of humans survived, and centuries later, after rebuilding civilization, set out to record what was left of the history that led up to such an apocalypse. What would they say? Probably this: that in the days leading up to the war, men believed in the primacy of ideas over reality, of lies over truth, and of ideology over nature.
