“I am not truly free if I am taking away someone else’s freedom, just as surely as I am not free when my freedom is taken from me. The oppressed and the oppressor alike are robbed of their humanity. When I walked out of prison, that was my mission, to liberate the oppressed and the oppressor both.” — Nelson Mandela
Politics is so frustrating and depressing and overwhelming nowadays, and there doesn’t seem to be any escape. Everything is politicized. Everything is weaponized. Everything feels so important and urgent. And that’s exactly what the people who are fucking with us want.
I have spent most of this year just trying to keep myself sane amidst all this madness. This morning, I realized… it’s time to stop fighting a million battles, and it is time to start fighting the war. The assholes of the world call this a culture war, and it really is…
And this war isn’t between democrats and republicans… it isn’t between left or right. It is a war against freedom, waged by every evil ideology that thrives on inequality. And if you don’t want to end up a slave at the end of this… you need to fight the good fight, too.
The most frustrating thing about all this, for me, is knowing that many who fight for illiberal ideas don’t even realize that they are. They don’t realize that they are setting themselves up for slavery. The rhetoric of criminality used in Illiberal PsyOps is astounding.
And I think that is key… their “rhetoric of criminality”… all that garbage language that turns the whole world upside down and backwards… war is peace… slavery is freedom… good is evil. So fed up with this shit.
Know why it’s called, “rhetoric of criminality”? Because it re-programs the mind to accept… and even worse, DO… really fucked up shit… while believing that they’re actually doing good.
Throughout history, evil people have convinced good people to buy into evilness. And they’ve been using the same playbook, through every cycle of evil, each time improving their methods.
This time around, they claim they’re fighting Cultural Marxism. The Nazis called it Cultural Bolshevism. Nietzsche called it Slave Morality. Relative to modern times, the most ancient term for what they’re fighting against is actually more fitting: Aristotle called it Democracy.
These terms… Cultural Marxism, Cultural Bolshevism, and Slave Morality… it’s all just Democracy, relabeled, to turn “freedom” into a dirty word…
The common message: “All this talk about freedom and equality is a conspiracy the slaves are hatching to eliminate their masters.” And because it takes two to Tango: “The masters of the world are conspiring to make sure you can never be a master yourself, and must be destroyed.”
But nobody wins in a society built on master/slave duality. Whether oppressed, or oppressor… oppression weighs heavily on everyone… either on one’s back, or on one’s soul. If we want to win this war, we have to fine tune our game, and fight “for” the things they are fighting “against”. Our fight… is for freedom from oppression.
