Bureaucrats and ideologues who are not artists, writers, or talented storytellers always somehow find their way to the front of the ship where they promptly run it aground.
Despite what many cinema pundits are claiming, such wild disrespect and outright hostility to old, established and cherished icons is purely ideological.
I know, I know.
Here we go again.
So far, we have seen Star Trek‘s James T. Kirk and Star Wars‘ Han Solo unceremoniously killed off after incompetent directors invalidated everything for which they stood.
This is a common tactic used by misguided Social Justice Warmongers (SJWs) and their historical predecessors within the Far Left who have done these same character assassinations on fictional heroes like Sherlock Holmes, John Carter and Tarzan, as well as beloved historical heroes such as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Jesus Christ.
Read any communist source material from the late 19th century and this subversive strategy of separating people from their heroes, their heritage, their faith, and even their language is laid out in chilling, step-by-step detail.
The regimes of China and Russia didn’t happen by accident. They were precisely laid out, plumb and line, according to extant Marxist dogma.
The Far Left — and yes, it’s always the same people, so much so it long ago moved from impulse to pathology…. If you don’t know this you are either completely blind, indifferent, or a card-carrying member of the Far Left (or some cult within it) — despises the ongoing influence and inspiration these characters (real or imaginary) have on their audience, the American population.
The Far Left is militantly committed to warping what these and other characters stood or stand for (past or present) by re-branding them to their own scaly, ultra-damaged half-image.
Re-imagining. Re-invention. Reboot. Deconstruction. Creative License. These are the terms used when bad guys want to destroy what someone or something really stood for… right before they are “re-imagined” into the exact opposite of what they were on the page, or in real life.
These frequent characters assassinations are carried out under the auspice of art. And golly, who doesn’t love art, right?
Leftists, regressives, and subversives do this so that when they get caught — and they always get caught — they can shrug their shoulders and claim “You are reading too much into this piece of artwork,” or “You are overreacting.” The blame is then transferred from the artist who actually deformed the icon or personage to the person offended that they did it. It is a common but clever tactic used by unstable people who cannot outright overthrow you trying to get you to overthrow yourselves. And, given about a one hundred years, it works very well.
And naturally, if you are reject the artwork as insensitive, misleading, false, defaming, libelous, disrespectful, or even sacrilegious, it is you who are called “intolerant” or “inflexible” or a “bigot”. All standard practice for Leftists.
Sin always wants in.
To use a Biblical example: the snake always wants in the garden, and it always goes after the innocent and inexperienced.
And any logic, reasoning, book, or spiritual safeguard that identifies the Far Left (and others) for what they really are, is always mocked, marginalized, and when possible, outlawed. Spirituality is always stripped from children — for who are the most innocent and inexperienced among us if not our children?
This is why the Far Left stalks children.
Just like in the third chapter of Genesis, anything demonic will always the use the Law to strip any debate or discussion about God or Grace from schools, colleges, campuses, corporations — anywhere someone can be rescued. And we know anyone trapped within the Law, dies by the Law.
Another ruse is scientific progress: “We don’t need to think that way any more!”
Brought to us by television series like Star Trek or any hundred science fiction movies, fantasies are rolled out to replace real life. I will get to this particular point in a subsequent post.
Even in mere fiction, Tolkien reminds us the orcs of his Middle Earth were once lovely elves who were mutilated, maimed away from conscience, and destroyed from beauty. The Nazgul too, were former “kings” who fell under the “delusions of Sauron” — one baby step to the left followed by another; one degree to the left followed by another…
Until they became damned Ring-Wraiths. These kings, like Isha (female Man) failed to stand in the very wisdom — God’s wisdom — they already had.
We find “No” is far away the better answer to Life’s dangers than “Yes”.
Have you ever noticed people who deny Scripture are the angriest? Most depressed? Always marching, blaming, burning things down? Where is this vaunted peace they claim they found outside the Prince of Peace Himself?
Is it in the bricks they throw? Hiding in their howls?
Joseph Campbell famously titled one of his books The Hero with a Thousand Faces.
If heroism has a thousand faces, then evil has a million. After all, there are infinitely more ways to do something wrong than to do something right.
The formula 2+2 only has one answer: 4.
There is one right answer for 2+2 and an infinitude of wrong answers. Again, there are way, way more wrong answers than right ones to any given situation.
But evil always seduces, whispering in your ear about the inferiority of one race or another, the unlawful equality of women, the inconvenience of unborn children, the silliness of beautiful symbols, the joy of language, the exclusivity of intimacy, the privilege of faith, the power of reason, the over-hyped bonds of family, the obsolescence of what people believed before you graced the Earth with your birth…
and other lies.
Sauron. Satan. National Democratic Socialism. Stalinism. Relativism. Sexual perversion. ISIS. All arrows shot from the same quiver only with slightly different fletching. These, and may more, are all darts tempting us to step into the shadows for a break from the highly disciplined Life in the Light.
This is how the Far Left has operated for over a century. Under other names and aliases, this has been going on for millennia. It is nothing new. I mean, heck, I saw these tactics back when I was in Junior High School — they aren’t exactly subtle about their dreams of conquest. These fools have menaced Man since the earliest civilizations.
And for the record, there really is no such thing as the “Far Left” and/or the “Far Right”.
They are all totalitarians in the image of their angelic overlord.
They are same: one simply uses the left boot to stand on your throat, the others use the right. Politically it may satisfy some pretentious sociopolitical hair-splitting, but morally they are distinctions without a difference.
There are not enough books in the world to explain the inhuman motivations of the Far Left. Traumatized, molested, and betrayed, the hordes of the Far Left believe everyone else is just as scarred as they are — we’re not.
No, we’re not.
We never were.
Nor were we responsible for your injuries.
Those are just two lies of many no one else falls for but you (if you belong to sickly Far Left).
Dear zealot, do you know who is responsible? You are. Those of your own ranks:
- Those among you who reject “thou shalt not kill” as Stone Age drivel actually killed your mother or your father or your brother;
- Those among you who ridicule “fathers (and mothers), do not provoke your children” as religious gibberish are the ones who terrorized your childhood;
- Those among you who deny “thou shalt not steal” as superstitious babble stole your car, your money, or whatever;
- Those among you who abhor “God made Man in His image” and conned you into believing you exist in a cold, loveless, indifferent, kill-or-be-killed cosmos are the ones who decimated your hope and self-worth down to alienation and suicidal despair;
- Those among you who mock “the love of money is the root of all evil” and “do not seek only to be rich” are the very financial shysters and banksters (whom you are always mistaking as capitalists) who have distorted economics, oppressed the poor, destroyed the middle class, raided your savings, and plundered their way to illegitimate prosperity;
- Those among you who think pedophilia (oh, sorry: “inter-generational” or “trans-age” intimacy) is permissible are the ones who molested you as a child;
- Those among you who scoff at “live in peace with all men” are those who sent you to a far-flung war zone on a whim for profit where you were injured or maimed;
- Those among you who burn books and sneer at Biblical commands like “be not menstealers” (because they are going to Hell) enslaved your ancestors;
- Those among you who hiss and spit at the very words “love they neighbor as thyself” put your people in ovens;
- and on and on…
So if you really want to know who is to blame—
Look in the mirror.
Unable to accept their own role in their depravity (as expected) they blame others — and anyone will do.
Their scapegoats include: those legitimate liberals of antiquity and true conservatives; Christians and Constitutionalists; inventors and capitalists; saints and sages and noble soldiers; people who believe people have the right to defend themselves; people who honor their country; people who pay taxes; people who believe in right and wrong; people who believe the law should be proportional, applied to all evenly, and obeyed; people who demand science actually be scientific; people who defend fair and free markets; people who oppose slavery; people who oppose totalitarianism…
Basically the best of humanity are their perpetual enemies.
These people will leave nothing untouched.
And if they cannot kill you, they will kill your heroes.
You may add to this list the mutilated corpse of the fictional Jedi savior Luke Skywalker.
What Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, and all the cold ambitions of the Dark Side of the Force could not accomplish…
Rian Johnson and Disney did for them.
I submit to you that if you are on the Far Left, or within a stone’s throw of it, you will never find peace. You are trapped in a Forever War against the very One who can free you of your chains.
Be free for the first time in your life.
