We should never forget that we are engaged in a war to the death to save civilisation. The enemy is Cultural Marxism. That has been the most dangerous enemy since the 1920s. It is the enemy within, the cancer cells slowly multiplying within the body politic.
And Cultural Marxism’s strategy is a very long-term one. They have been waging war against civilisation for the best part of a century and they are prepared to go on fighting for another century.
We are dealing with fanatics. In the long term they will accept nothing short of complete unconditional surrender to their agenda, which is the destruction of our civilisation.
Each battle they fight is merely a prelude to the next one. Each retreat we make gives them a new position from which to continue their offensive. Never ever believe a cultural marxist who seems to be prepared to compromise. They take your compromise, and then go straight back on the attack again for more.
If you look at gay marriage, they started out saying that all they wanted was for homosexuality to be decriminalised. Just one tiny concession, surely that was not too much to ask? When they got that they said that all they wanted was the removal of legal disabilities attached to homosexuality. Just one tiny concession, surely that was not too much to ask? Then they wanted civil unions. Then they wanted gay marriage but they assured us that churches wouldn't be forced to conduct such marriages. Once they get that, they will start pushing for churches to be compelled to perform such marriages.
They started out in most countries just wanting abortions in special circumstances, and only in the early stages of pregnancy. Then the push was on to extend the “right” to abortion, step by step.
And we must never lose sight of the bigger picture. Each battle is part of a wider campaign, each campaign is just another battlefront in their war. Every beachhead they establish is the jumping-off point for another offensive. The foot-soldiers of Cultural Marxism are often unaware of all this. They’re just the Useful Idiots. They don’t need to know the overall campaign strategy.
That's why it's a mistake to go on the defensive. We have to force them onto the defensive. You have to start attacking the gains they've already made. We have to destroy their beachheads.
That might seem hopeless, but the task of Cultural Marxism seemed hopeless 80-odd years ago. Even in the 1960s no-one seriously thought that western civilisation could be brought to the brink of destruction. Now they're within sight of final victory. Every retreat we make from this point on brings them closer to that final victory. We have very little ground left to give up. Unless we regain some of the lost ground we cannot win.
Recent events in Australia (see my most recent post) show just how vulnerable the Left is when it’s on the defensive. There is an immense but unfocused rage out there amongst ordinary people at the slow strangling of our society. That rage just needs to be focused.
