The left is playing a dangerous game. The objective is domination. The rules are there are no rules. The term “left” generally refers to liberal or socialist socio-economic philosophy and governance.
But I think that definition is not adequate today because it connotes local rather than global. It is my contention that the left’s objective is no longer governmental domination of individual countries, but global domination. This is not a change of philosophy, it’s always had a global scope, but the conditions for achieving that objective are changing more rapidly and getting closer to the point where they can get away with the end-game moves. Perhaps a better term would be “Globalist,” and in fact I would include the corporatists who have traditionally be categorized on the right side of the political spectrum.
The strategy of erasing borders and sovereignty, stripping liberties and stifling dissent, and weakening the military capabilities of Western democracies is well on its way to subjugating its citizenry. One of the last flies in the ointment for the Globalist is the armed citizenry of the U.S. There are too many armed Americans who won’t go quietly. Hence the “chaos strategy” employed by the Globalists with movements like Black Lives Matter and the painting of the police as the bad guys. The open borders and immigration policies that almost ensure more chaos and less safety for the American people. The economic and trade policies that ensure a lower standard of living for Americans. The problems with Obamacare that too many attribute to poor planning is anything but – it was never designed to provide better and more affordable health care – it was designed to make things worse so Americans would become more dependent on the government for their health care.[pullquote]The strategy of erasing borders and sovereignty, stripping liberties and stifling dissent, and weakening the military capabilities of Western democracies is well on its way to subjugating its citizenry.[/pullquote]
Those and other acts designed to make life in America more dangerous and chaotic are working toward their objective. At some point, the government will “step in” to quell the violence and restore order. Some form of Marshall Law will be imposed, our 2nd amendment rights will be stripped and guns confiscated. At that point, “the people” will have no recourse as the voting booth will have already been rendered useless and a disarmed citizenry has no chance for a successful rebellion.
But what about the Islamists? Where do they fit into this picture? Right now, the Globalists see the Islamists as an asset as their terror attacks help create the chaotic condition necessary to implement the police state required to subjugate the people. But at some point, the Globalists are going to have to subjugate or eliminate the Islamists too. The other global players like China and Russia haven’t invaded Western countries the way the Islamists have and therefore don’t pose an immediate threat to the Globalists. They may even turn out to be partners because their philosophy is the same, only their local sovereignty may be an issue. Not so with the Islamists whose beliefs are more anathema to the secular Globalists than the Christians and Jews the Globalists have been castigating for decades.
The Globalists are playing a dangerous game. They think they can achieve their objective and then dispense with the Islamists when they’re no longer serving their purpose. Meanwhile, the Islamists are charging ahead with their own objective to establish a global caliphate. The Globalists have to play the game and not take out the Islamists until they have their police state in place. The danger is how well entrenched will the Islamists be by the time the Globalists can shed their benevolent pretense and show their real face, and will they be able to effectively eliminate them at that time.
This is truly a heads they win and tails we lose proposition for the rest of us. I don’t even know who to root for.
