Okay, I thought I would start with a funny from the Babylon Bee (click on pic for article), because what I want to talk about is anything but funny. When we see the inane policies of the current administration playing out at the border, the burning of our cities, and now, the utter disaster in Afghanistan, we may well wonder what’s going on? Are they utterly incompetent and stupid or is it all intentional?
I’m personally landing somewhere between the current administration being the neo-Marxist left’s useful idiot and just plain incompetence. We can all hope it’s not intentional, but that may wishful thinking.
What if it is intentional? For instance, let’s just assume for a moment that the POTUS and his advisors are totally competent and had some mysterious reason to halt the previous administration’s Crisis Response Plan that would’ve ensured the safe evacuation of all Americans before pulling out of Afghanistan. Is there something else going on? Something nefarious?
When we take a clear-eyed look at the big picture of what’s been going on—all the chaos at the border, the burning of our cities, defunding the police, cancel culture, the dismantling of American culture by radical activists, and the repressive laws being enacted under the pretense of Covid—we should honestly wonder what’s behind all of this.
This is where understanding the operating system of the woke postmodern, neo-Marxist left is critical. I’ve already talked about how the left practices Marcuse’s “Repressive Tolerance” through the mainstream media and Big Tech.
We should also understand that these leftist activists didn’t just decide to go insane when they got in power this year. The current chaos is the culmination of decades of indoctrination and radicalization of our American youth. Many of these indoctrinated now hold influential positions in every part of our cultural institutions.
And when we ask, what’s the left’s playbook for the intentional chaos, we need look no further than the works of Sergey Nechayev.
But before we get to Nechayev, I highly recommend a book by James Simpson titled, “Who Was Karl Marx?: The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today’s Rampaging American Left.” Trevor Loudon, who’s been following and reporting on Communism and Socialism for decades, described Simpson’s book this way: “Who was Karl Marx? From Marx and Nechayev to Lenin, Gramsci, and Black Lives Matter, we are seeing a long-term, well-integrated revolutionary movement on the verge of world domination.”
In the book, Simpson introduces us to Sergey Nechayev (1847-1882), a Russian revolutionary who greatly influenced Vladimir Lenin and every radical activist since. “The character Pyotr Verkhovensky in Fyodor Dostoevsky‘s anti-nihilistic novel Demons is based on Nechayev” (Wikipedia). The fact that Dostoevky felt the need to name the book, Demons, should tell us something about Nechayev and his evil ideas.
Nechayev wrote a manifesto titled, “Catechism of a Revolutionary” in 1869. In this work, Nechayev lays out how to destroy a society. He believed that to bring man to paradise on earth (the Marxist utopian pipedream), first you have to make things miserable.
Nechayev said, you have to bring man to such a state of distress and abject misery, so they will revolt against the government and have a revolution. This is precisely the playbook that Lenin employed against the Russian people that led to the Revolution and civil war that went from 1917 to 1923.
And when his own people were starving and dying from the famine in 1921 that was brought on by the seizing of all the farmer’s property, Lenin said it was good! It was part of the Bolshevik strategy to bring the Russian people into submission. The point that Loudon makes is that every time Nechayev’s playbook has been followed, from Lenin until now, it has led to nightmarish disaster, death, and misery. There have been no exceptions. This is the ultimate end of Socialism wherever it’s been fully tried.
So, could Nechayev’s playbook just be what the radical left has been following here, all designed to make us more and more miserable until we finally give in to their ideological promises of some Socialist utopian pipedream? (Utopia literally means “nowhere,” by the way!) As far as these neo-Marxist woke activists go, I don’t think it’s because they’re stupid (although their ideology IS stupid and evil), it’s intentional in order to destroy our society. Some of their leaders have said the same.
Here’s a video from Trevor Loudon talking about Simpson’s book, along with other good resources to educate us against this evil menace that’s been released on our nation. Beloved, it’s time to wake up. We’ve been asleep for decades about what’s been happening to us. It’s time to push back any way we can against the insanity of the anti-Christ, cult-like religion of the woke. To do that, we must first arm ourselves with the truth.
4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (2 Cor.10:4-5 NIV*)
