Elites Against Western Civilization

Via Tedmund Chan

 
Teaching youth that there is nothing good about our democratic cultural inheritance, the intellectual class is working to discredit our past and demolish our future.

The intellectual class across the West—encompassing its universities, media, and arts—is striving to dismantle the values that paced its ascendancy. Europe, the source of Western civilization, now faces a campaign, in academia and elite media, to replace its cultural and religious traditions with what one author describes as a “multicultural and post-racial republic” supportive of separate identities. “The European ‘we’ does not exist,” writes French philosopher Pierre Manent, assessing the damage. “European culture is in hiding, disappearing, without a soul.”

The increasingly “woke” values of the educated upper classes reflect, as Alvin Toffler predicted almost half a century ago, the inevitable consequence of mass affluence, corporate concentration, and the shift to a service economy. The new elite, Toffler foresaw, would abandon traditional bourgeois values of hard work and family for “more aesthetic goals, self-fulfillment as well as unbridled hedonism.” Affluence, he observed, “serves as a base from which men begin to strive for post economic goals.”

  1. I have said it a hundred times, and I will say it again and again. This New Millennial Generation will vote us all into SLAVERY via COMMUNISM. THEY HAVEN'T GOT A FRIGGING CLUE!

    1. SIGH! I never wanted to be "old". But now with the current Millennial generation leading America into the abyss of Communism being 77 is a blessing.

    2. Is that some sort of GD projective joke? You F'n Boomers are the very reason we live in clown world today. IDK whether you're incompetent or socialist who have managed to become the protected class, and you're defending the gravy train?
      You need to find the presentation 'If you only knew how bad things really are', which explains how WWII was used to purge the conservative voter, via a rigged draft system. Next you Sociopaths will be claiming 'ya gotta pay meh taxes', as if two wrongs create a natural right, for a FICTION.
      Legal maxim, Any contract contingent upon an illegal act, is not enforceable. Contracts are VOLUNTARY by definition, Coercion is ILLEGAL.
      Your scared SL b/c your generation DROPPED THE BALL, and you've fallen for a brainwashing technique known as 'making promises in the future for which there no obligation to fulfill'. Common victims include choir boys, and those gullible to religion.
      G.W. you're acting like those you hold in contempt, act like a man if you have too, but realize with your real eyes, the real lies. IF YOU'RE NOT DOING SOMETHING TO HELP, YOU'RE PART OF THE PROBLEM.
      I, for one, get called a lazy bum on a regular basis b/c I REFUSE TO FEED THE BEAST, WITH MATERIALISTIC BEHAVIOR. It's been obvious since HS, we live in a clown world where the guilty point the finger, and the innocent are held to account for the actions of the guilty. The fox is guarding the hen house, aka the BAR should be razed.

  2. Wow another Anono-M-O-U-S-E that can ROAR. Ha, Ha, Ha We FRIGGING BOOMERS are the Problem eh? Who is Blaming Who, now? You need a Strawman: "If you only had a clue!" Get a grip. "I, for one, get called a lazy bum on a regular basis b/c I REFUSE TO FEED THE BEAST, WITH MATERIALISTIC BEHAVIOR." Really? Do you own a cellphone, a car, a house, how about a credit card, or perhaps a student loan? Be honest, did you vote for Obama or Hillary? Did you rent the computer that you use to spew your tripe? You as a millennial are the product of several FAILED SOCIAL EXPERIMENTS that were/are the Brainchild of a PROGRESSIVE/DEMONCRATIC REGIMEs, starting as far back as Wilson. Some may say even as far back as Lincoln (R-Illinois). This isn't new. It has just reached a new height. YOU and YOUR Generation like all the rest of us will have to pay for it. So suck it up. Join the Military. Serve your Country like so many of us have done, before you point your finger. Get some skin in the game, maybe then you will have a better understanding. Not all Millennials are bad. But there are too many of them that sure like their FREE STUFF. They probably learned it from their parents. They will vote for whoever promises them more FREE STUFF. Student loans, Credit Cards and Other Loans are all Contracts that one signs and must uphold. The WELFARE EXPERIMENT is another FAILED Socialist program. It was intended to be a Safety Net, not a Hammock, nor an occupation. You DON'T FEED THE BEARS. True, even in Yellowstone Boo Boo. If you don't work for your subsistence then you don't deserve to eat. Have a Nice Day Anono-M-O-U-S-E.

  3. 'If you only had a clue' WOW, what a readtard, that's not the name of the presentation, president Pelosi. Cell, pff, nothing but scam callers EVERYDAY. Car, bought not running, OTR for <$2K, put 30K on it already, mech sound, A/C, great body condition, quality tires (and how much did you sink into your Suburban, that only transports yourself?). Two, and no I avoid the credit trap even though my score is well above average. I'll pay for knowledge any day of the week, as opposed to getting paid to be a target slave. UC I can build the drones that drop shirts on your trench, IF that route couldn't be avoided. Or I can take to O2 out of your general vicinity, to make it quick. But as a creator, I have MORALITY not to destroy, b/c I know how hard it is to CREATE, unlike some people who think killing is the first option. If you can't replace it, BTFO. Pero was the first vote I cast for president, held my nose voting GOP until Mr. Donald J. Trump. Rebuilt the one I'm on, about $70 for a T series. Been on the net since 92', BBS prior, can even program in hexadecimal, and you?
    "This isn't new" of course, you've been going along w/ the program hoping it will fix itself, out of complacency. You don't get it, I'm not paying for YOUR phuckup, cuck. Join, too old, saw that pitfall for what it is. What make you so arrogant, to think I want to be anything like the looser you've become? 'Serve', LMAO, "Beware of those who preach of self sacrifice, for they are speaking of master and slave, and they intend to be the master." ~ Ayn Rand Unlike you, I didn't get paid to learn, I HAD TO PAY. Who do you think got the better education?? 'better understanding', I refuse to stand under anyone w/ less than a decade of SCIENCE education. Though I will take words of wisdom such as 'It's easier to be a patriot in the light, than in the dark', thank you Brock, I took that to heart.
    'Get some skin in the game' Really, you expect me to buy into a game that RIGGED, to support the protected classes. Protected classes such as former military? Sounds like you're looking after your own interest, like a common non-productive, and even destructive, socialist who has nothing to offer society but authoritarian rule. Liberal logic 'student loans are free, you don't have to maintain grades or even show up to class'. Hell, I've worked two job AND attended full time, FU. Wanna know what men who do that get for their efforts, ARRESTED. B/c if you don't work for uncle scam, you're subjected, not protected. All my contracts are in good standing, with the exceptions of those due to me, and yours? Answer me this, sociopath, is work contingent upon YOUR DEFINITION, like a common Bachelor of arts degree holder? B.A. holders like B. Clinton "depends on what your definition of 'is' is?", basic SOPHISTRY. In HS, peers would call me Scerry. Mouse, that must make you a white elephant, like the sympathetic six in Indonesia, which died under a waterfall. My occupation is doing the wright thing, if that's not good enough, then maybe I don't belong here. Maybe you sociopathic socialist should get your way, more third world migration. Keep it up, maybe you will get your wish.

    1. Why would I want to be around someone who points the finger at others, when they themselves are the ones that started the ball rolling. You ask lots of personal questions, but won't answer the same. Not hard to tell it's nothing more than bait, like a witch, trying to find fault to create a guilt trip. It's the 'world owes me a job' attitude, that motivated you to go into the military. Then you want to act like a sanctimonious prick, b/c I don't want to go along with the socialist programming you've indoctrinated others to beLIEve your con-job. You sir, have no respect for me or the Bill of Rights. Your claims are on par w/ the 116th House of Reps, a finger pointer guilty of the very charges you proclaim of others.

  5. Hey Brock, could this be where this gnat is coming from?
