Wow, part deux
Further thoughts on my recent post, Wow.
As I put it in a comment on Gates of Vienna nearly six years ago:
I guess I have more respect for my fellow Westerners than Baron and others here have. I'm not interested in saving a perpetual Kindergarten of idiots [or Sheeple] in league with an evil cabal of "Elites" -- if that is all the West is to you guys.
The reader can go to that link, and scroll along to find Baron Bodissey's response, then my responses, then his, etc. At the end of the day, the sentence I quote above is the heart of the problem of the "Real Problemers" and the incoherence of their vision, finding coherent release only, perhaps, in a Gnostic view of the world where an ecclesiola in ecclesia, so to speak, forms a Remnant of the Elect who steel their eyes toward darkly gathering clouds on the horizon foreboding a Civil War between a tiny gathering of Good Guys reconstituting the rudiments of a new society (à la Lincoln, Reedus & McBride of The Walking Dead) amid the future chaos, against the forces of the Masses of Sheeple led by the neck by a Dastardly Cabal of Evil Elites. Oh yeah, and the problem of Islam is somewhere in there, as an ultimately less important factor.
