We live in the age of victims. Politics is all about fostering the sense of being a victim.
This is the age of victims, the era of victims. Modern people all see themselves as victims – even conservatives. That is the whole concept behind politics, that is what drives it. Politicians pander to the victim set and we wonder why no one does anything.... the whole point of being a victim is to find the person who can solve things for them.
Victimism is a regression to childhood when the child looked to their mother for comfort. It answers at least in part the fascination with feminism, the glorification of the feminine power to console and pacify. The male model is more about facing the beast and overcoming it. This is why the male role is in decline as a social archetype.
Leaders crop up all over the place with sword in hand ready to battle the foe, but too many are of the male archetype. Like the knights of old they look for brothers in arms. Over time they become disillusioned because of the lack of support. FB especially breeds a sense of supreme detachment. The reader can like posts, or even posts comments, but few feel responsible for changing anything. Few see any need to change their life, let along pick up their sword and ride shoulder to shoulder into battle.
In the end any solution will require change from us. People do not like to hear this, they want at most to walk for the cure, play ball to end diabetes, vote to solve all their political problems. Politics panders to people’s victim mentality. Politics caters to people’s lack of responsibility. We are the ones who suffer. Someone ought to find a solution and impose it on those who are the cause of our discomforts; this is the way the modern victim thinks.
I could and have traced these issues back 6000 years, I could and have wrote a history of the world and why we are in this situation. None of this is new. None of this is really recent. But let’s keep it local and recent so we can keep it short.
From 1940 to 2018 the liberals have been in power in Canada 15 times. Conservatives 9. So, you tell me how realistic your hopes as a conservative are if based on political victory? At best you can slow an implacable process down and both liberals and Islam can wait us out.
For those who are not clear on what we are talking about here we are talking about the liberalization of society. Conservatism is simply a defensive measure often invoked by similarly minded people who are nervous about the rate of change.
A defensive war cannot be won. This is all conservatives have. Conservatives fight a rear-guard action, harassing the enemy as they drive us back. Soon we will be in the situation of those brave souls in Hong Kong or Dunkirk and for the same reason, we are out fought and out-gunned; but with one different, we will have no one to rescue us.
Let’s hope conservatives can re-create the political victory of Harper and decimate the liberals. What next? Conservatives will ask us to tighten our belts and pay back the liberal debt. The Conservative government will bring in austerity measures and people will begin to hate the hardships conservativism brings. Things will gradually get back on track, but people will get greedy as they always do and demand governments spend more and allow more freedoms. Liberals will promise liberty, plenty, instant gratification and once more, eventually this time or next, they will win the election, over turn everything conservatives accomplished and continue the globalist agenda where they left off. Just as they have since the beginning of this country.
Liberals will create more divisions and more groups who think they are entitled to their share of the pie. More and more people who think they are conservative will start to adopt the politics of victimization, just as conservatives have adopted so much from liberalisms ideology. With enemies like conservatives who even needs friends. Conservatives are not the opposition they are the laggards, the anchor, the nervous liberals who do not so much oppose liberalism as suggest we slow down the rate at which we head towards the dissolution of our civilization. Conservatives are, for the most part, liberals secret weapon, the reason for the historic success of liberalism.
The day of conservatives doing the same old thing over and over again hoping for change is finished – unless we wish to continue our role as liberals fifth column. We need a new vision, a new solution. We need something that is conservatism and not merely a reserved liberalism. No one has taken the time to develop a new approach to the problems posed by liberalism because no one seems to comprehend the depths and extent of liberalism. We cannot defeat liberalism within the social system of liberalism, we cannot defeat liberalism using the tools liberals provide us.
But please, do not look at what my ideas are nor at the solution I propose. Just look at the political solution soberly and seriously and really ask yourself if politics is going to solve these problems once and more all. Because I think you will discover, if you are honest with yourself, conservatives need to change our tactics if we are going to change who ultimately wins this cultural war. For this is what we are in.
Civilizations fail, not because other civilizations destroy them, witness Judaism for example. Civilizations fail when the culture that sustains them is destroyed from within.
The culture that has made the west what it is, is under attack by those who feel dispossessed and underrepresented. Liberalism did not produce this culture it is and has always been and continues to be a parasite. Its going to take more than putting this parasite on a diet for a few years to change things.
