Cultural Ion Thrusters

(Taking a mental health break after this for a week or so...)

I work in a STEM field and for a while I wanted to be an astronaut, so one of the things that has always fascinated me is the different propulsion systems available and being developed.  One such system is an ion thruster.  A propulsion system with no moving parts, it has a high reliability and incredible efficiency.  Counterbalancing those benefits is a very low actual thrust – I once read, at least as of years ago, that ion thruster force was comparable to a holding an 8 ½ X 11 piece of paper in your hand.
But placed on a spacecraft and run continuously, over years it will affect significant changes in that spacecraft’s velocity (speed and/or direction).  In fact, this is one of the kinds of propulsion systems proposed to deflect an asteroid from a possible collision path with Earth, if detected far enough out to get one to that rock and let it run for years.  Force applied over time…

THE LEFT’S LONG GAME
In my essay Socialism’s Gateway Drug I embedded a video (HT to Free North Carolina) showing the history and the relentless zealotry of the Frankfurt School in pressuring society to move Leftward.  Here it is for your convenience.

[The Architects of Western Decline A Study on the Frankfurt School and Cultural Marxism / 28:29]

To that end, they’ve worked assiduously to take over the media and academia.  It’s a perfect example of Rule Two: Those who control the information flow control what people believe.



ORGANIZED PRESSURE ON MULTIPLE FRONTS
[Hollywood Wants Your Money...and Your Mind / 4:49]

Gay marriage, for example, was introduced over time.  Drip, drip, drip.  Now, as I said in my fifth Red Pill Journey essay, I have nothing against gay people per se nor do I wish to see them discriminated against; while against gay marriage I will add the caveat that there does need to be some provision for gay couples legally… just don’t call it marriage.  The pressure for acceptance, no, normalization of homosexuality is everywhere… both overt and subtle (and notice how it’s being slipped into multiple movies-in-the-making, even if most such lines get cut out; sooner or later they’ll dribble through).

The same with the acceptance of abortion as a “right” not a horror.  And single parenthood.  And euthanasia, (and at some point, the decision will be taken out of the hands of the doctors anyway: Google Is Training Machines to Predict When a Patient Will Die)  And casual hook-up sex is, very arguably, cheapening marriage; e.g., Is Cheap Sex Making Men Give Up on Marriage?  We’re also seeing a shift from seeing marriage as a foundation of a life to be built together from early on, to a conclusion of a life spent building a career; The Surprising Benefits of Marrying Young (link in original):
As the researchers at the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia put it, “Culturally, young adults have increasingly come to see marriage as a ‘capstone’ rather than a ‘cornerstone’ — that is, something they do after they have all their other ducks in a row, rather than a foundation for launching into adulthood and parenthood.”
Not to mention the sexualization of children earlier and earlier, and the outright encouragement of deviancy to boot (and the concealment of it by legal threat), Planned Parenthood Instructor Has Mother Arrested for Trying to Audit Pornographic Sex Ed Class:

[Those] who advocate for every type of sexual proclivity [including anal sex and even BDSM] to be taught in gory detail to K-8th graders have zero understanding or compassion for parents who are fighting with every tool in their arsenal to keep this oversexed-culture rot from their children. It's as if they don't know that half of the country thinks they're crazy sickos for teaching ten-year-olds how to give blowjobs!

[Shock Video School Children Receiving Mandatory LGBTQ Indoctrination / 5:04]

Western Civilization, with its colossal achievements across the board, as outlined in the phenomenal book Human Achievement, is being erased from our schools, Who is funding the destruction of Western civilization?
‘It’s now possible to complete an English degree," says Peterson in the video, "and never encounter Shakespeare – one of those dead white males whose works underlie our “society of oppression.” Peterson by way of Biblical exegesis and his familiarity with philosophers such as Friedrich Nietzsche, asserts that the ideas asserted by Leftists and post-modernists must be identified so that they can be effectively resisted. "You may not realize it, but you are currently funding some dangerous people. They are indoctrinating young minds throughout the West with their resentment-ridden ideology. They have made it their life mission to undermine Western civilization itself, which they regard as corrupt, oppressive, and 'patriarchal." Taxpayers, and parents paying tuition, are underwriting this vandalism, he added.
Pedophilia is now being weighed as an addition to the alphabet soup of LBGT-whatever, as related by a friend of mine about what his daughter told him about news from her college (more evidence here).  Add in a comment at Liberty’s Torch by Rick C (replying to my comment in quotes, bolding added):

"Mark my words, we'll see, at some point, a pedophile in a TV show in a start to normalize that."
The fourth season of the British show Torchwood (a Doctor Who spinoff) did just that--one of the main characters was a pedophile, although if I remember correctly he was not a sympathetic character.
To which I replied (bolding added):

@Rick C: OK, it will start with a "non-sympathetic" character. But now it's there. And then it will be a middle-of-the-road character. And sooner or later, presented in a positive light... time, drip by drop.
So what do we make of this new movie, A Kid Like Jake: Hollywood's Attack on Traditional Gender Roles that starts to put transgenderism into the mainstream of thought? 

Or this piece, CNN Celebrates Father’s Day: ‘He Gave Birth. He breastfed. Now, He Wants His Son To See Him As A Man, that… that… that I can’t even thing of something to say except, perhaps, gag/retchThis… abomination – there’s no word short of that which rises to what I feel – is being presented as something to be celebrated.

Gag.  Retch.



MIXING THE RACES
Let me preface this section with a quote, attribution unknown:

There is no form of human communication so perfect it cannot be misunderstood.
Or, I will add, that cannot be distorted, folded, remixed, and used against you by those intent to smear you Frankfurt School style.

I am white; I could, after shedding my kippa, easily attend any actual “White Power” meeting without even a scintilla of fear based on my appearance.  I also have a dog in the hunt: I am, as I have previously said, married to a non-white woman.  To me, personally, race is immaterial; culture (Western Civilization) is.  She’s beautiful (I said I married up), intelligent, educated, cultured, feisty, and so on.  She’s also not Jewish, but our children are – by her explicit consent and cooperation (and she often says with a little annoyance that our older child looks like my clone; barely a hint of my wife’s racial background is evident in the kid’s face / complexion – you really have to look, to the point where she sometimes jokes I must have cheated on her).  We did a mikveh (conversion) for them; they attend Hebrew / religious school, we say daily prayers, and they think of themselves as Jews.  I am slowly teaching them the kashrut within the tolerance window of my wife who, on occasion, rolls her eyes at those culinary strictures.
But this video, pulled from Quickies: Racial Identity Versus The Promotion Of Racial Blending, raises some interesting points, and not just about the diversity of white people – and I concede I had not thought of Whites as “diverse” but the video makes an excellent point.  But relevant to the point of my essay, the video does point out the drip-drip-drip promotion of interracial marriages to blend the races.

[Why Interracial Relationships Are Pushed On White Women / 11:26]

I firmly believe in Martin Luther King Jr.’s admirable wish: I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.  And I try to live that, every day.  I look at notable black men like Professor Walter E. Williams, whose autographed picture is framed and on my wall, and his colleague Dr. Thomas Sowell (still trying to get his autograph) and can only dream of being a tenth as knowledgeable and educated as they are.  And yes, were my children to marry a black (or...) with the character, education, and culture of those two examples, I'd have no issue with it.
But having said that, I would also be a fool to ignore the fact that genetic traits breed true.  It’s an axiom.  And with evolutionary pressures that created disparate races with differing eye and skin colors – clearly superficial characteristics – it is entirely reasonable to believe there are other traits that have been selected for over the generations as well that have more significance on a population-average basis.

There is nothing wrong with being Black, or Hispanic, or Asian.  But on the flip side, there is nothing wrong with being White.  And in any case, any race, there is nothing wrong with preferring your own to others (there’s now a movement to say that if you have racial preferences in dating then you must be a racist; am I a “heightist” if I prefer a woman who is shorter than I am, all other things being equal?  I know I'm a "lookist" because I like the fact my wife is beautiful.).  There is, more broadly, nothing wrong with believing that Western Civilization is the greatest civilization to have ever existed – I so believe.  And let me be as clear as I can be: from whitest White to blackest Black, and every shade in between, there is no – NO! – excuse for differing treatment under the law.

[Bill Whittle The Assault On Civilizational Structures / 1:34:33]

Yet there are people – and I’m ashamed to admit too many Jews – who seek to destroy the White race even if it means they themselves have no children, and some who seek to destroy Western Civilization outright, e.g., G-d Damn You Barbara Spectre.  I have, and will again, maintain that it’s liberalism, not Judaism, that drives this – and for too many American Jews they’ve conflated the two
The liberalizing fallacy has been that each generation could make concessions to modernism by discarding some things that "no modern person takes seriously anyway" while assuming that the next generation would want to keep the things that they kept, instead of throwing away more things to adapt to a modernity that was continually becoming more hostile to traditional religious values.
Eventually throwing things away became Liberal Judaism. And that Judaism became the nothingness it sought to be. The liberal impulse made that Judaism into liberalism, its synagogues into community activist groups and its theology into social justice. Its Rabbis excelled at the language of moral seriousness; but like all Western liberal clergy they had nothing to be morally serious about.
All those, Jew and Gentile alike, who seek to eliminate Western Civilization and its White founders have stability privilege; they will not like the reality that emerges should they succeed.  And I count them as civilizational traitors, in need of a short drop and sudden stop.

EXAMPLE: KIDS CARTOONS
My kids like cartoons; one they enjoy – and there is an educational element – is “Wally Kazam” about a troll with word and letter sounds; overall it’s kind of cute.  But in one episode the “goo-rilla” (gummy-bear gorilla) is proposed to, and marries, the “chick-aphant” (chicken-elephant hybrid).  “Love is love” – right?


EXAMPLE: FIREARMS

I’ve mentioned in other posts a liberal blogger whom I read regularly; they wrote, after the horror of the Parkland shooting, of the need for an IIRC 20+ year campaign to have in every news broadcast, every newspaper, everywhere, a daily and prominent recitation of shootings and murders-by-gun to slowly alter the perception of firearms in society.  I recall, can’t find it, from years past discussion of the need to slowly create the impression – quote from memory – of guns as “dirty, dangerous, and banned”.
This blogger gets it, and I suspect many on the Left do – how a slow, imperceptible thrust, relentlessly applied over years and decades and even centuries, can intentionally change the character of a culture.

(Aside: I remembered, suddenly, an episode of Quincy - the crusading coroner from TV decades ago - about a gun being used in multiple crimes; at some point in the episode the titular character exclaims about the gun still being in criminal circulation "The real killer's still out there!"  The Left has been at this a long time.)

Because Breitbart was absolutely right: Politics is downstream from culture.


MISSIONARIES
Frontpagemag‘s founder, David Horowitz, once said in an essay that I failed to bookmark (dammit!) that Leftists are missionaries, and gave examples.  They truly believe they can create heaven on earth.  To that end, they seek to change human nature – believing themselves to be better people.

So what’s the ultimate point of my essay?  That the missionary zeal of the Left drives them to see those who oppose their fantasy of heaven on earth as evil – and that humanity can be perfected with enough nudging over time.  E.g., Cass Sunstein Wants to Modify Our Behavior:
As Sunstein would have it, the more-enlightened members of the intellectual class, with whom Obama has stocked his administration, know what is best for ordinary citizens. Since they know what is best for our health and happiness, we are obliged to submit to their far-fetched schemes for our betterment — schemes that often involve wealth redistribution and the enlargement of governmental powers.
But unlike NASA’s plans to divert an asteroid from impact with a small but relentless force to free us (from the impact) the Left seeks to impose slavery under their *cough cough* enlightened, Philosopher-King rule.


CONCLUSION: THE EXAMPLE OF THE ANTIBIOTICS
Without going into gory detail, for several years I found myself having to go on very high doses of antibiotics for 2-3 week periods.  About the fourth or fifth time, I was clinically depressed.  I told friends that I was going to die, I just knew it; I gave one friend a list of people to contact when (!) this happened and said I’d call every day to tell him I’d woken up.  After the course of medicine stopped, everything became right again, and I realized it was the medicine that caused it.  The next time I had to take them I was prepared, and understood that the storm clouds I was under were externally-induced.  The same with the above – now that I know that the Left is doing this, I can watch for it.

The same for us all.  Now that we know what the Left is doing, we can prepare for it, enlighten others, and most importantly, prepare to misbehave.

[I aim to misbehave – Serenity / 1:12]

One last thing.  Seen on LinkedIn is a meme:
“A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps 
becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams come true.”
― Greg Reid
·         The Left has a dream: Utopia; a perfected human society.

·         The Left has a goal: Worldwide socialism.

·         The Left has a plan: Critical Theory, Political Correctness, etc.

·         The Left has action: The Long March and ion thrusters on all – ALL – of the information flowing in society.
So… what is our dream?  Our goal?  Our plan?  Our actions?  Before we can counter theirs, we need to have ours, and present it as not just a viable alternative to theirs, but a better one.  We cannot be random policies aggregated together and tossed out; we must show our vision, and our goals, and our plan, and our actions.  We must show how that vision flows from our principles and understand how to package and present all of it.

[PJTV: The Power & Danger of Iconography / 8:08]

Then we can begin the process of winning back the culture – and only then can we win the politics.
The Left’s been at this for over a century*.  They’re missionaries for their cause; we need to be missionaries for our side as well… and understand this will not be a short fight.

And please check out Part 2A.

* From The Jewish and Post-Jewish Vote (bolding added):
This second wave [of Jewish immigrants - and immigrants in general] turned rigidly Democratic under the rough tutelage of the urban political machine and the gentler tutelage of an educational system meant to turn Jewish, Irish and Italian immigrants into proper Americans-- and to the people running the melting pot machine, Americanism meant Liberalism. They didn't always succeed, but they succeeded well enough to build an immigrant electorate for the Democratic Party.

  1. Was there supposed to be a link in the gun control section above?

  2. People boggle when I say it's going to take generations to reverse. Because a cultural Orion drive would probably be more violent than even the space equivalent.

    1. Oh, no - I agree with you. To reverse a momentum requires twice the effort - assuming that the opposing forces have stopped.
      We will likely be at this for generations. Our main goal today is not to win - extremely unlikely - but to build alliances/disciples who will carry out the process in their lifetime.
