To hear the media tell it, the American right is nothing but a bunch of conspiracy mongering wingnuts.
Perhaps one of the most assumed conspiracy theories is the Illuminati/Bilderberger/Trilateral Commission conspiracy, centering on a cabal of international bankers, intellectuals, and wealthy elites – mostly whites of European descent, many Jewish, some Nazi, almost exclusively male, all of whom meet in secret to plan and direct world affairs.
The Illuminati was a secret society founded in Bavaria in the late 1700’s by an empiricist law professor, Adam Weishaupt. While the stated purpose of the society was “enlightenment” and the challengedof the superstitions of the Catholic church, Weishaupt also intended to change the way European nations were run using subversive means. Supposedly linked to the Freemasons, this group has been linked to everything from the assassination of JFK, to “faked” moon landings and even the 9/11 terror attacks.
The Bilderberger Group was founded in 1954 and still exists today – it is an invitation only, annual meeting of ‘elite intellectuals’ – several hundred bankers, politicians, and leading figures from across the world meet in secret to discuss issues from around the globe “out of the public eye”. Rumors abound that the group is 1) controlled by Nazis, 2) it is working to implement one world government, 3) it controls the US Republican party and 4) it is likely run by evil dictators who are distantly related to lizards.
The Trilateral Commission was founded by David Rockefeller in 1973, ostensibly to encourage economic cooperation between the United States, Japan, and Europe, but allegedly it is a secretive organization/society with the true goal of creating a system of world currency and world governance to achieve a New World Order. Don’t know if Nazi lizards run this one, but it is more or less an updated mashup of the Illuminati and the Bilderbergers.
But who needs these secret societies/groups when you have the United Nations and the World Economic Forum? These two groups are not “secret” and have proven the “conspiracy theories” are not theories but real conspiracies though things like the UN’s Davos climate forum and programs like Agenda 21. The WEF has the “Great Reset” in which they propose to eliminate capitalism and initiate world governance. Not sure if the Nazi lizards are in control or not, that remains to be seen.
The left treats these situations as “conspiracy theories” because they can use them to portray people as “nuts”, far right wingers, fringe extremists, “AltRight” or the new hotness – domestic terrorists.
How about we look at the American left for a bit?
For decades, the left has claimed that “Cultural Marxism” is a far right antisemitic conspiracy theory claiming Marxism is the basis for continuing academic and intellectual efforts to subvert Western culture, capitalism and religious freedom.
But is it a conspiracy theory?
Cultural Marxism is real, based on Critical Theory, a proposition created by the communists of the Frankfurt School (it exists). Critical Theory seeks to explain the failure of communism to overcome Western forms of governance and economics by describing every element of each obstacle to the proletarian revolution as some form of master-slave oppression. Cultural Marxism differs from Economic Marxism (where the enslavement and oppression are economic and due to capitalism) and considers the myriad of elements of traditional Western social structure the component parts of an oppressive regime.
Unsurprisingly, since communism has failed to trigger a “workers” revolution in the West, the master-slave dichotomy must be found everywhere and in everything – in marriage, Christianity, republican government, nation-states, free market enterprise, and free speech. Even the family unit is considered oppressive because marriage, husbands, wives, parents, and children form a hierarchy. Husbands and parents are the masters who oppress and exploit women and children. Under this definition of everybody being someone else’s oppressor, patriarchy is seen as an obstacle to revolution, so only by abolishing patriarchy, redefining, or eliminating marriage, and nationalizing children will the revolution be possible.
Critical Theory focuses on two primary obstacles they believe caused the failure of the Western proletariat to revolt: the family and Christianity. Through resynthesizing and incorporating Freudianism and Marxism, an unholy postmodernist golem was created, establishing a relationship between fatherhood and the nation-state. Therefore, for the destruction of the nation-state, the pre-revolution would have to abolish fatherhood, triggering a cascade of destruction of both the family and the nation-state.
Now, incorporate all that and then distill Critical Theory down one more level and apply it to race, where every issue is explained by racial oppression.
Critical Race Theory incorporates all the themes of the Illuminati/Bilderberger/Trilateral Commission conspiracy, centers on a cabal of international bankers, intellectuals, and wealthy elites – mostly whites of European descent, many Jewish, some Nazi, almost exclusively male, all of whom are racists who meet in secret to plan and direct the oppression of blacks in America through systemic racism.
The nexus of left and right “conspiracy theory” is little more than the ongoing attempts of globalists and communists to foment revolution in the Western world in the face of a century of failure. Western culture proved too prosperous for too many for too long for economic issues to be leveraged, Religion and devotion to the family too resilient, so the collectivists chose to attack through playing the only card left, the race card.
A recent comment by an associate began a thought process – they said we stand to lose, not because we don’t know the rules of the game, but because we don’t even know what game is being played.
Conspiracy theories cease to be conspiracies or theories when they become obvious and based in material reality. Cultural Marxism, Critical Theory and Critical Race Theory are as much part of our reality as the UN, Davos, Agenda 21 and the Great Reset.
To know what game is being played is the first step to winning.
