What worries me is the growing political power of those ignorant of the lethal effects of ‘wokeness’, left wingism, socialism, on the freedom of the individual versus state totalitarianism.
This is against humanity’s destiny in Reality.
Any heightened consciousness of human development, that only comes through individuals not totalitarianism, has always provoked totalitarianism to impose severe consequences on free individual development.
Just look at Ananias and Sophia of the bible, and the USSR, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, pre-reform India, Cuba and Venezuela. QED!
Former U.S. President Trump has turned out to be a pragmatic but finally disastrous antidote to the persistent lust for totalitarianism that plagues human progress.
The good news is, this too shall pass, because totalitaranism is artificial. It always falls under the weight of its own inherent evil* (lack of Reality).
The bad news is totalitarianism has historically killed, maimed, mentally and physically crippled, tortured, imprisoned unjustly, impoverished and banished, tens of millions in its literally classical diabolical process.
Sadly, totalitarianism, though passing, can survive many decades … This time, let’s see if obvious danger obviates the danger …
*After being smuggled into and out of the European Iron Curtain countries a few times I was back in the safety of a western European city. I was billetted temporarily in an anonymous house with an old hand smuggler on his way out there again, a stranger to me. He asked for my impression of where I’d been. I told him I was so depressed at what I had seen of the enslavement into medieval peasantry from a once modern thriving culture. He laughed. He said, “Don’t worry friend, Communism/Socialism is falling under the weight of its own evil all over eastern Europe, even Russia.” I thought he was balmy. I had seen and heard what I had seen and heard.
International socialism was in top gear then, full of a lethal power and an insidiously applied influence of leaders of a political party with less than five per cent membership of its people.
A few years later the Berlin Wall fell.
