The activists demanding society changes to their version of a new world order are those least qualified to set the rules for the majority.
Gone are legal and democratic processes. Bypass all that. Topple statues, rewrite history and vilify anyone who wishes to have a civil discourse on how to make changes that benefit all, not just the few.
It is all too easy for those who have little clue of history to tell us about what the future should look like.
Who can blame them? No one is standing up to them.
Police officers taking knees despite not being guilty of any crimes themselves, corporates removing products they were happy to sell for decades on the basis it is now chic to make gushing virtue signaling PR releases to avoid censure and politicians who have been too weak to put anything meaningful on record. Gutless.
Where is the debate? Is this a society the plurality want? Activists riding roughshod over civility under the pretense of injustice is desirable? In other words, fight racism with more racism. Fight sexism with more sexism and protest violence with more violence against people completely unrelated to the cause. Cancel movies, sporting team chants and even comedy. They will tell you what is acceptable.
Decent people are prepared to accept improvements in society. They don’t see it achievable with defunded police, censorship or autonomous zones.
Perhaps CHAZ/CHOP is the perfect example of what the apparatchiks who scream the loudest, covet. For them, Day 1, Year 0 is a mission. Never mind the hypocrisy of everything it stands for. No police, rule by unelected warlords, mob violence with street administered kangaroo courts, demands for whites to compensate blacks and walls with strict immigration policies. That is not all of it. Everything they reject in a democratic society they endorse in CHAZ.
We are being led by cowards. The more our law makers and companies surrender to appeasing the mob, the more they are emboldened.
Like most decent people, we don’t need sanctimonious lectures from corporates, sporting bodies and law makers, many with sordid pasts, on how we should check our privileges and reflect on feeling guilty about things which don’t define us nor ever given a thought.
Yet this is what is happening. Complete submission to a fringe minority who use threats an intimidation to foster change. Who knew shaving required lectures on toxic masculinity? Who knew skin whitening cream was inappropriate despite pale skin being desirable in certain cultures for centuries before people of other races were even known about? Everything is at risk of appropriation.
We’ll continue to make noise in full knowledge we will be the first to be locked up in a new world order because “In a Time of Universal Deceit — Telling the Truth Is a Revolutionary Act.”
