Mao and his acolytes completed their infamous Long March in 25 years. It took the woke commissars 50 years to complete their Long March to power in the West. How long will it take the Long Reawakening to reclaim our future? https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/tiananmen-square-massacre-cultural-revolution

You say "nihilism" and that's precisely right. Everyone should read "The Revolution of Nihilism: A Warning to the West", written in 1939 by a former Nazi supporter and ex-mayor of Danzig, Hermann Rauschning. It's a free download. Today's "revolution" is like Nazism in that it is essentially unprincipled and amoral, a faux-revolution - because however problematic most revolutions end up being, the French and Russians and Haitians had some real reasons to revolt. Combine this with the authentic, if illegitimate ideological conviction of today's "revolutionaries" and you get a thoroughly postmodern stew of meaningless but alluring abstractions, put into place through the combined efforts of fanatical ideologues and cynical careerists. It's truly the worst of both worlds. It's not revolutionary so much as itself counter-revolutionary, because it's attempting to overturn the one truly successful revolution in history, the American, 250 years after the fact. It's also no coincidence that, for all its blather about "indigenous rights", it demonizes the only successful repatriation of indigenous land in history, that of the Jews of Israel (also no coincidence that Israel, unlike the surrounding states that progressives prefer, is a pluralist democracy - everything they claim to espouse).

and we let them. Country club republicans were not looking at the influence of culture and education. They were busy thinking about taxes and defense. They thought these radicals wouldn't survive in the real world. I thought people would never accept tattoos at work, radical ideas, now boys wanting to be girls. But they got into power and now control it all. My son says civilization stands on a three legged stool. family, religion and the rule of law. All are almost gone. Glad I am old and won't live to see the end.

This is the very reason that Universities, Church, the United Methodist, and political systems are failing the ordinary citizen in every aspect.

Continue to speak the truth because only the truth can set you free.

In the early 80s I was a graduate student at Berkeley working on my Ph.D. in statistics. One of my housemates was a graduate student in English. One evening she had her friends over to discuss the new hot topic in their field, which was that everything was an expression of power. What about reason, I asked? "No such thing!" I was informed (patting me on my naive stats guy pointy head): it's all about power. Reason is a just mask that tries to cover up this fact. And, for the first time, I learned the word "deconstruction". I wasn't drawn into their enthusiasm, but I did come away with a degree of sympathy. After all, what was a Ph.D. student in English supposed to do that hadn't been done a million times before? I had no idea. A lot of idle minds needed a new cat to chase up a tree. Well, they found it.

The Chinese Communist Party has been a great supporter and funder of the American Cultural Revolution. They know the easiest way to destroy America is to dismantle it from within using the Marxist strategies of destruction and revolution. The goal of the Chinese Communist Party is to destroy the U.S. by 2049, the 100th anniversary of the founding of Communist China. Many Americans have been duped into thinking the Chinese Communist Party is our friend. But you can't trust a communist because they are quite willing and even eager to lie.

Let the counter-Revolution commence, brothers and sisters! You have nothing to lose but your freedom.

Great summary! My post to another QTR's Substack re: the exact topic... the bottom line was: "The task before us now is one of building the counterculture of equal moral status in the face of the sophistry which will most surely continue." While yours was stated as: "The task for the counter-revolutionary is not simply to halt the movement of his adversaries but to resurrect the system of values, symbols, myths, and principles that constituted the essence of the old regime, to reestablish the continuity between past, present, and future, and to make the eternal principles of freedom and equality meaningful again to the common citizen."

Rather I would say the task is finding a way to join together those who (only since 2020) appear to be 'counterculture'...WE ARE, AND HAVE BEEN THE COMMON SENSE, MORAL CULTURE. The numbers of people who were piped pippered into woke insanity are large but NOT as large as they want us to believe. Their divide and conquer strategy has worked ....another boxed ticked by the globalist's covid plandemic...and our challenge is to find our moral common sense people of any and no religion and join forces. IF we don't, they win. (Here's an excellent interview laying out this as the bottom line: https://www.brighteon.com/051733b1-cbc1-46d4-a070-d78b71073168...warning: hard to face...but common sense adults will take up the good fight vs. the rose colored wearing hippie think crowd who will say 'It's all good...you are so negative...get away!...you are ruining my bliss." (Yes, the social psych op started in the 60's.)

the #1 reason people go commie left wing and become "useful idiots" is due to high housing prices. Study Germany post WW2 history and you'll find that to be true. The right wing in Germany (Nazis were left wing obviously) were having a hard time getting votes and realized they had to build build build housing. Then things got a LOT more normal once housing costs came down. Then you have little to complain about and no one is fighting for the "little guy" because there is no little guy.

The click from Frankfurt School of Social Research after being kicked out of Germany because of their mostly Jewish heritage were hired by the big 5 Ivy League Universities Humanities Department, add to that the Educational Philosophical inclusion of John Dewey and the infamous Dr.Carl Rodgers mixed with Greek Philosopher “Gorgias’ art of persuasive speech in the Teacher’s Union and Marxist cultural contamination into our society, while America silently sleeps through the 50’s and you have the mess we’re in. Santayana (among many) said: “ Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it.” The fact is the meta generation don’t know history because Marxist education has revised it to their godless narrative. This next election will be a watershed event.

Interesting that the exploitation of children has followed the same timeline. A coincidence? I think not.

Actually, the Left hasn't conquered anything. It has been colonized by Big Capitalism (AKA the medical/military/industrial complex), just as the cultural changes in the 60's were colonized by capitalist forces. There is no real Left in the United States at this point. Part of the problem is that even the "working class", at least until quite recently, has actually been well-paid Middle Class by the standards of any other country on this planet. They've been bought off. And then there is another hidden working class that is female and unpaid, even as individuals in that class may ALSO work poorly, and not so poorly, paid jobs outside of the home. Everything is swallowed and co-opted by the corporate and billionaire class which turns around and blames the so-called "Left" for the inevitable social and economic problems. Look at climate change. Denied for decades and decades by Big Oil. When it is obvious we are in a fix, the WEF is pushed to the fore (it's been developed in the wings for decades now, thanks to the same people who have brought us Forever Wars) with solutions to prevent global climate collapse by killing off as many people as possible through vaccines, social movements (BLM, anti-immigrant violence and neglect, incompetent and negligent and often inaccessible medical care, income inequality, etc.), transgender ideology, the ever-present bullshit wars (Ukraine, Israel, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, etc.) with all the damage to economies worldwide that result from those wars, all while the billionaire and corporate class is making OODLES of money on death and destruction. And now we have the Great Reset where the corporate and billionaire class will take possession of all our assets, including our land, and if we don't toe the line they'll off us. They're spreading the most bizarre cocktail (appropriate word if ever there was one) of toxic metals in the atmosphere which is killing huge expanses of forests, making money on the deal (Bill Gates, anyone?) from some investment but also the hidden theft from the nation's coffers, in an attempt to hide how bad global warming already is. Now we have huge forest fires burning (for four months now in Canada and I don't know how long in Siberia). The very spraying of these metals in the atmosphere (to dim the sunlight and lessen the heat) quckens the demise of the entire planet, including our forests which are the lungs of the planet. Warming has gotten so bad even this extreme measure of geo-engineering cannot hide it. Don't believe me?

The United States IS racist. Its roots are racist. The ideology of race has changed through the centuries. Most people who consider themselves White today were not considered White in Benjamin Franklin's time. And it isn't the mythical "Left" that is pushing bizarre ideologies into schools and other institutions: It's the WEF (look at their ESG program) and billionaires. They've bought out the universities, healthcare system, courts, Congress and White House (look at that preposterous show yesterday passing a bill that "determines" that Israel is not racist--what a HOOT!), non-profits, schools, media. We don't even have media anymore. We have to rely on substacks for "news".

Wake up, indeed. Most importantly, think for yourself. Stop joining bandwagons. THINK FOR YOURSELF. Do your OWN research. Learn some REAL history (not the World According to Reagan). If you still can, given the amount of aluminum and graphene oxide that is being sprayed on you. The better for 5G microwave to addle-pate you. Critics of geo-engineering are predicting 50% of humans alive today will die of dementia because of the toxic materials being sprayed on us world-wide in a pathetic (male) attempt to block the sun. No wonder so many people appear to have lost their ability to think independently.

It sounds like this book is pushing the old, failed narrative.
