We have seen the emergence of a new form of ORTHODOX RELIGION from the depredations of Marxism and its hideous derivatives.
As Farmer John once quoted long ago, "Meet the new boss. He's the same as the old boss.”
It was never particularly “Christo Fascism,” (Theocratic Tyranny), Monarchism, “Naziism”(Fascism), or "Communism" (Marxism) against which we've periodically rebelled, because all those things are essentially the SAME: TOTALITARIANISM, DESPOTISM, TYRANNY, AUTHORITARIANISM in dfferent guises in front of different sets with different titles and different "buzzwords."
Every few generations a NEW set of ruthless, politically ambitious sophists works its wiles to persuade the masses the NEW brand of sophistry they are promoting can provide the means of ESCAPE from the present mode of established authority.
And so it has gone throughout history …
See-Saw by fang and claw
Jack shall gain a new master
He'll earn less than a penny a day,
Because he has fought for Disaster.
Poor "Jack" –– i.e. "Everyman" –– can never get out from under no matter what Pied Piper he chooses to follow. All Jack can do is periodically DESTROY the status quo, then find himself –– IF survives the debacle –– back in Square One.
Or as the Pennsylvania Dutch quaintly put it:
“The farther ahead I go,
the behinder I get.”
