2,400 years ago, Socrates was convicted and sentenced to death, for not believing in the gods of the state.
500 years ago, Galileo was convicted and sentenced to house arrest for life, for not believing the state’s belief that sun revolves around the earth.
50 years ago, hundreds of thousands or millions of people were massacred in China’s Cultural Revolution, for not believing the state’s beliefs.
On May 4, 1970, Allison Krause, Jeffrey Miller, Sandra Scheuer, and William Knox Schroeder were assassinated on the campus of Kent State University by the Ohio National Guard, for being near an entirely peaceful protest against the state’s Vietnam War.
On October 14, 2020, the New York Post was locked out of its Twitter account for accurately reporting apparently-criminal, apparently-unethical news about the son of the state’s soon-to-be next President.
The state now demands unity in the acceptance of its beliefs: Blacks and Whites are not equal, straight and LGBTQ+ are need-to-know concepts for our children beginning as early as first grade, our nation was founded in 1619, our Founding Fathers were racist, Whites are bad from birth, and murder and mayhem are acceptable in furtherance of the goals of Black Lives Matter.
All day every day, politicians and pundits preach about this detail and that detail of unity, with hubris and disdain, without ever mentioning the elephant in the room: Revolution.
It’s de rigueur to shout “racist” and “fascist”, but, for the moment, to shout “revolution” is to let the cat out of the bag too soon. Shouting “revolution” is reserved for when the time is right — when revolutionaries can almost taste the fruit of their labor. Until then, we sit silent, pretending they’ll never shout “revolution” — exactly as when German Jews sat silent, pretending Nazis never would shout “revolution”.
Many of us rely on the excuse that the 2022 elections will prevent the revolution. Really? Will the in-place indoctrination and control of America evaporate, if Democrats lose control for a couple of years? Will university faculties and teacher unions become unbiased? Will mainstream media become ethical? Will Big Tech stop controlling speech? Will the culture of anti-Asian, anti-Catholic, anti-Jewish, and anti-White end?
Revolution is the path we’re on. Debating the details of why, doesn’t change that fact. Debating what to do about it might. Debating what to do about it is exactly what our Founding Fathers did; our Founding Fathers didn’t merely complain about it. How much longer will we pretend that the revolutionaries never will shout “revolution”?
