After January 20th, the Right Must Smell of the White Rose

Globalism is the third ideology to attempt to construct a new Tower of Babel since World War I. In America, the ideology fully manifested through a fusion of Democrats and the Bush/McCain/Romney Republicans with a technocracy unconstrained by any national jurisdiction. The technocracy is comprised of the legacy media, Big Tech, the Green industry, Hollywood, K-Street and Wall Street, and has replaced our constitutional republic through their shared interests by regulating the flow of our supply chains and the information we consume according to their ‘terms of service’. It assaults dissenters and violates the conventions of free speech and democracy, collaborates with foreign governments to ‘cancel’ its critics and indoctrinates the masses through subliminal messaging, advertisements, disinformation, and false propaganda to mislead and distract the public and to hide the truth about Western interests in Third World countries. Most technocrats are morbidly wealthy oligarchs who hate ordinary people. They’re using COVID-19 to justify a ‘great reset’ of the global economy into a new age where green demagoguery and ‘social justice’ will replace liberty, democracy, and national sovereignty. They will attempt this similar to the European Union through economic and monetary integration.

The Democrats and technocrats are milking last week’s breach of the U.S. Capitol similar to the Nazis following the Reichstag fire in 1933 in order to justify an authoritarian crackdown. Dick Morris put it well when comparing the coming ‘reign of terror’ to the bloody wrath of Jacobin leader Maximilien Robespierre during the French Revolution: the Democrats are taking no prisoners, imperiling our free speech, free press, political playing field, and personal liberty. Conservatives and libertarians who’ve supported Trump face bans from social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat.

Regardless, January 20th , 2021―when President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated―will be remembered as a terrible day in America’s history. The nation’s capital is bracing for violence, a potential crisis the media of course fuels. While the media distorts key details behind what occurred, it’s expanding the narratives it crafted surrounding COVID-19 and two months later the path of destruction by the ethnonationalist Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization and Antifa through, quote, ‘peaceful protests’. In the process, Big Tech―the most powerful branch of the technocracy―systematically suppresses anyone daring to expose the truth or provide competing narratives surrounding the virus, BLM, and the presidential election through coordinated attacks on free speech. All this points to what Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said is true: that “the greatest power within the Western countries, more powerful than the legislative power, the executive, and the judiciary” is in fact the media and today, its Big Tech aggregators.

In the past week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted that “A lot of people are going to be unhappy with West Coast high tech as the de facto arbiter of free speech” after reading satire about Big Tech’s canceling President Trump. A Tesla fan account replied that “West Coast high tech has to make the distinction between banning hate speech and banning speech it hates,” to which Musk agreed: “This is an important distinction.” Recently Musk proclaimed it was “time to break up Amazon” after it blocked publication of Alex Berenson’s book, Unreported Truths about COVID-19 and Lockdowns: Part 1: Introduction and Death Counts and Estimates. Most significantly, he called for his supporters to embrace alternative platforms and recommended the encrypted messaging app Signal in lieu of Facebook-owned WhatsApp.

Musk’s point here is key: the Right is at a critical point where it’ll either hang together or hang separately. It must blaze a trail towards a new frontier, an alternative reality for conservatives and libertarians like Elon Musk. There’s growing talk on the Right of developing a competing ‘parallel economy’―not a black market mind you, but a new, very different ‘declaration of independence’ for the 21st century, a global emancipation of liberty-minded traditionalists from the planetary technocratic regime. The initiative could parallel the non-violent German resistance group, the White Rose Society, from the 1930’s which featured intellectuals and students at the University of Munich who published and distributed pamphlets expressing opposition to the Third Reich. With the FBI and technocrats vastly expanding the surveillance state against conservatives, the American Right should recruit like-minded people embodying the White Rose Society’s mission.

People must understand that words are the ticket to power, honed through the rhetorical tactic aporia (Greek for “to be at a loss”) to create doubt and uncertainty to prove a point. This White Rose movement might begin by crafting a love letter to the American people featuring the opening line of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s poem, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways” before applying the paradox from Oscar Wilde’s statement: “I can resist anything but temptation.” Because the world has evolved beyond the ‘mass society’ of the Industrial Revolution into an age where people engage remotely with limitless access to information at their fingertips, understanding that more people today feel isolated than at any other time in history points out that our old Western values have fallen into cultural atrophy amid the chaos, confusion, and uncertainty. Because the West rapidly secularized after World War II, addressing the matter demands that we tear down these artificial walls of separation before rebuilding each individual by reminding them they have value, that humanity is not some static timeless reality but rather a community. Human beings are understood in terms of relationships, always in the process of becoming persons as they relate to God and the surrounding world. Our mission therefore is utilizing, not rejecting, the rapid advances in digital technology to reintroduce the new ‘remote society’ to embrace basic moral principles again. Quoting heavily from the Bible and philosophy regarding contemporary moral issues like abortion and the death penalty could attract a new generation of pundits and scholars and support from long-established names. People must see that human beings can’t determine universal truths, only the Creator can. Once this is understood, we can begin reconditioning the general population to question whether, for example, the West can impose a Judeo-Christian moral codeto force foreign societies which abide by honor codes to assimilate with the ‘new world order’.

Any White Rose movement should facilitate a refreshed understanding of what America and the West’s present reality is, not what it has been or what powerful people are forcing it to be. Killing the trending narrative that we’ve arrived at some ‘end of history’ in which liberal democracy will become the final form of human government in the post-Cold War era is vital. But crafting the new narrative requires convincing millions to understand that the Left didn’t simply disappear with the collapse of communism in 1989, it embraced capitalism: that the Left never changed their beliefs, just their suits. It’s the West today that plots and manufactures chaos scenarios that are rubber stamped at the United Nations to engage in a competition for limited resources (oil, natural gas, raw materials) against rogue actors. It’s the West which manufactures a vast array of social phenomena―wars, revolutions, poverty, discrimination, and domestic violence―to democratize the world by promoting ‘human rights’. It was America that transformed the brutal Chinese communist regime from its Maoist origins into the world’s preeminent superpower by outsourcing our manufacturing sector, killing millions of jobs and laying low communities. It was Western interventions that resulted in ethnic cleansing and genocide throughout the Middle East and Latin America. Because the West exploits the refugee crises they’ve created, millions of Arab Muslims have migrated into Europe from depopulated regions of North Africa and Syria and, in the case of the U.S., across the southern border from the heart of Latin America. Ancient cultures have disappeared more quickly since 1989 than under communism and fascism with every swipe of a credit card driving consumer confidence and the stock market. Across the West this appears reminiscent to Rudyard Kipling’s lyrics to The White Man’s Burden. We call this ‘white guilt’ in 2021.

Nearly 60 years after Decolonization, we should ask ordinary people how is it ‘the white man’s burden’ to love the world so much, the occidental West must use the free market to recolonize its former territories by eroding their sovereignty in the name of globalization? To apply free trade agreements and open borders to construct a new Tower of Babel across the seven continents digitally through 5G? Should ‘diversity’ not be a commodity for people to experience rather than an excuse for exploiting cheap labor in order to force poor countries to assimilate? How can the West spin narratives promoting ‘diversity’ and ‘human rights’ by importing tens of thousands of victims that it helped ethnically cleanse? That the Western media manipulates millions of people into believing that Western entanglements in the Middle East and Latin America (i.e., Arab Spring and the Iraq War) are somehow ‘just’ and therefore, any subsequent humanitarian crises should be disregarded as the unfortunate collateral damage that nevertheless occurred when making the world safe for democracy?

Using the internet and ‘snail mail’ to disseminate information or ‘dropping teasers’ on billboards similar to churches might pique interest and draw partisans to engage against left-wing depravity and the Biden/Harris regime (e.g., how we might mobilize hundreds of thousands of partisans on the model of the old MAGA rallies to peacefully protest future foreign entanglements embodying the spirit of the 1960’s antiwar movement). Sowing doubt by forcing ordinary people to soul search or proving points by asking rhetorical questions is designed to force them out of their comfort zone from which they were programmed and their online echo chambers to experience a strange new audience: the one they see out in public everyday.
