Communism’s attack on America never died — It just changed tactics

The U.S. is undergoing a cultural revolution similar to the one in England and Europe. If you believe our Democracy as outlined in the U.S. Constitution cannot be destroyed by the insidious cultural attack on our core values enshrined in the Hebrew Bible and the Christianity that is embodied in those Biblical moral codes you are mistaken.

The West thought they had defeated Communism with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Nothing could be further from the truth. What changed was the Left’s tactics.

Ms Melanie Phillips clearly points out:

“What they [leaders in the West] never understood – at least, most of them – was that the left-wing war to destroy the west had not in fact ended but merely shifted its strategy. Instead of the workers seizing control of the levers of the economy, the left would now seize control of the levers of the culture – the universities, media, civil service, churches, the legal profession – and subvert them from within”.

“Its aim was to undermine and weaken the normative values of the west and then flip them, so that what was transgressive became normative while what was normative became ostracized as transgressive. That way the west would be destroyed and would be transformed into… quite what was never very clear, but some kind of new world order”.

“The institutions at which this cultural revolution took particular aim were the family and the education system – the principal means though which a culture replicates itself”.

THE TORY JACOBINS

The reason why conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic have lost their way so badly in recent years is that they never understood, and paid scant attention to, the culture wars. In Britain, this has now led some of them to come out as warriors on the wrong side.

Conservatism is not an ideology but an attitude of mind. It involves identifying and holding onto what is most valuable and defending it against erosion or attack. In the 18th century this was embodied in the thinking of Edmund Burke, widely considered to be the philosophical godfather of conservative thought, when he defended freedom and human rights against the barbarism of the French Revolution.

In the 20th century, conservatives knew what they were defending and against whom. They were defending liberty and democracy against Soviet communism. When the Soviet Union collapsed, they assumed their fox had been shot since everyone seemed to have accepted capitalism.

What they never understood – at least, most of them – was that the left-wing war to destroy the west had not in fact ended but merely shifted its strategy. Instead of the workers seizing control of the levers of the economy, the left would now seize control of the levers of the culture – the universities, media, civil service, churches, the legal profession – and subvert them from within.

Its aim was to undermine and weaken the normative values of the west and then flip them, so that what was transgressive became normative while what was normative became ostracised as transgressive. That way the west would be destroyed and would be transformed into… quite what was never very clear, but some kind of new world order.

The institutions at which this cultural revolution took particular aim were the family and the education system – the principal means though which a culture replicates itself.

    Dr Swier, I must take issue with you referring to America as a democracy. That is simply not true. Amerca is a constitutional republic. It pains me to see people fall into the trap of believeing that democracy was desireable or established by our founding fathers. They knew better. Democracy is mob rule.
