Their vision of America is a rootless, deracinated, atomized people, cut off from tradition, heritage, religion, and all reverence for the past; they seek to encourage this not only by reviling and denouncing America’s past in education and mass media, but also by flooding the country with uncountable millions of aliens who share none of America’s traditions, folklore, culture, byways, or mythos, thereby making any reliance upon such things for the preservation of social cohesion — and without such shared values and beliefs there can be no more social cohesion within a nation’s borders than there is in an airport lounge — an act of “bigotry” “xenophobia”, and “exclusion”. The aim is to eliminate altogether the “civil society” and horizontal ligatures that have throughout all of human history bound people into organic and healthy communities, leaving behind a flattened and stifling two-level hierarchy: below, a solipsistic, radically individualized populace, stripped of everything but the appetites of the present moment, and severed from the extension in time, and thereby the deep sense of duty and connection to the dead and the unborn, that has been the hallmark of healthy societies always and everywhere; while above them squats a vast, tutelary, managerial bureaucracy.
In terms of succinctly capturing the means and methods the Democratic party employs in its war against America, the paragraph Pollack has written is a master stroke - a veritable coup de maître - and I applaud his clarity and lucidity. I would humbly add that what Pollack describes is not limited to the Democrats in the US alone, but can readily be applied to the entire Establishment and System in the West (which includes most parties and institutions that claim to be on the right). One need look no farther than the EU or the UN to recognize the same forces, machinations, and objectives in action.
Pollack's perception of what the Left aims at is both keen and incisive. Rarely have I seen the how and the what of the Establishment's overall objectives described so well. Unfortunately, as penetrating as these insights into the how and the what are, when it comes to the why, Pollack has little to offer here. I do not mean this as a personal criticism of Pollack - in all fairness, he did not aim to provide an explanation of the why in his excellent post - but posit it more as a general observation that can be applied to many bloggers and writers on the right who brilliantly and skillfully dissect the how and the what of the Left, but rarely stop to consider the why.
So let's ask the question now. Why? Why does the Establishment in the West aim for the kind of world Pollack so masterfully describes above?
Power? Maybe - but the Establishment already essentially runs the entire material world, so how much more power could they possibly squeeze out of us and the planet?
Wealth? Unlikely, especially in the upper echelons of the Establishment who make a show of donating billions from their own personal fortunes to fund their leftist causes.
Pleasure? I'm sure the Establishment can already satiate any and all of its earthly desires now.
Philanthropy? Does the world Pollack describes sound like the kind of place built by people who actually love humanity?
Totalitarian control? Yes, undoubtedly, but to what end. The Establishment has already has a quasi-totalitarian System in place now. Total control will not be an end, but rather a means - but a means to what?
Legacy? Status? The public figures in the Establishment already have both to some degree; the secretive ones do as well, but will not make these public.
I could list many other possibilities as to why the Establishment seeks to implement a globalized world of atomized, alienated, hedonically-driven individuals lorded over by an oppressive Ahrimanic bureaucracy, but none seem satisfactory, at least not to me.
I find the explanations above, and countless others I have encountered over the years, unsatisfactory: none strike at the core of what motivates the Establishment. None really explains why the Establishment yearns for the hell on Earth Malcolm Pollack has so perspicaciously described.
In my humble opinion, the only why that makes sense is spiritual. The Establishment has pitted itself against Divine Creation and avidly works to destroy Divine Creation. The System they are implementing stands in direct opposition to Creation and Reality. The Establishment aspires to one thing above all else - damnation. The Establishment seeks to de-align people from Reality. The System they are creating aims to turn people away from and, consequently, inspires them to work against the Divine, thereby all but ensuring self-damnation.
In a nutshell, the why boils down to evil. The what and the how of evil and its machinations only make sense if the why driving these machinations is fully acknowledged. The why is rooted in the spiritual; the objective is damnation. I have found all other explanations of the why to be nugatory and lacking.
