We walk through this world as if the past hundred years have not happened, that there is some semblance of the world we used to revere. Over that hundred years we have been exposed to the horrors of globalism. Except now the globalism isn't the idea of one nation conquering the entire globe, but a few powerful people in any number of nations that can sell the masses on their vision. Many of whom are complicit in the idea that control is better than freedom, that looting the treasuries for them and theirs is perfectly reasonable. They have come softly, as Gramsci instructed, the worst of humanity has seeped into everything that made the world decent. They perverted it. Now, as that same horror expresses itself in the streets of California and Missouri, we wonder how long we will be allowed to watch, without taking part, one way or another.
It still doesn't matter, because they are waging war on us from every nook and cranny of society. It has been allowed to grow and now we see how far.
The take down of Michael Flynn was a shot across the bow. It was the leviathan raising its ugly head above the surface. This was the integral cooperation between the media and the deep state. There is no point in drawing lines between Republican/Democrat, even Conservative and Liberal, just erase those lines, they no longer matter. There are those who seek your death and those who might benefit from your life. Unfortunately, those who seek your death massively outnumber those who might benefit from your life.
When one starts to count up the bodies attributable to the deep state, it looks more and more like the first few moments of the Bolshevik Revolution. The apparatchiks are the only ones who really understand the battlefield, because the elected officials are transient and will not last. What the deep state cannot accomplish with rules and regulations, they accomplish through federal storm troopers. Any lousy warrant is good enough to start a Waco. It is a death cult, like all globalist endeavors.
These riots that periodically arise are stage plays, acted out by fools, dupes or paid insurrectionists. They are merely evidence of the machine working. It is easy to divorce oneself from the conflict by imagining that there is some grievance that might be resolved, but there isn't. Only the deaths of those who remember freedom will suffice. The average Joes among them might even believe that it is better to establish order, or structure than to tolerate the risk of freedom. Look how effective that notion has been over the past several decades. The intent is not to save our lives, but to delegitimize freedom.
Forget all of the old political prejudices, there are only two sides now in this global struggle, those who would kill you for your disobedience and those who would kill to disobey. It may not have come to a struggle, yet. There is no open warfare, but the war has been ongoing for a century and they have been winning, because they come through our institutions. There is no way to reverse it, it is too pervasive. The only option is to confront it.
