The 'West' is being sucked into a global culture war....
There, I said it. We all have been dealing with battle skirmishes, but we may not have seen the many efforts to pre-position troops to out flank our desires to evade this global war.
Sadly, the simple desire for liberty is quickly becoming the 'civilian casualty' suffering the greatest death toll. We've been here before. As recent as the 1980s. That war ended when the hammer & sickle came down from the flagpole at the Kremlin.
This war with a 'fascist globalism' has been joined by the people through the pushback against things like politically-correct speech, having our little girls share a public restroom with strange men, forcing merchants into servitude of the things they believe are wickedness. Some communities are now overrun by strategic mass migration of tribes who immediately declare war against their new host.
Neither the globalist left nor the nativist right are advancing the cause of personal liberty. They never have been. And the escape to liberty is often very much like a desperate flight of a refugee who just wanted to be left alone.
The global war from 1935-45 had some sanctuary nations. But even Switzerland is now an enlisted militant in the globalist ranks.
Writer's note: I am openly breaking a personal journalistic standard in this essay. Fascism is an economic system (also called corporatism). But I use the contemporary bastardization of the term when I discuss cultural fascism.
Antifa went to war one year ago. They claimed the moral highground and immediately became the worst version of the wickedness they claim to confront. Namely, they violently sought to silence any diversity of thought which threatens their fascist hypocrisy. Antifa preaches the inherent evil of the United States and seeks to force all nations to submit to a global tribunal of sovereign power.
Great patriarchs like Franklin and Jefferson would oppose Falwell, had they both lived in the same era. Jefferson's liberty doctrines were far more tolerant of diversity.
Former AG John Ashcroft was accused of religious intolerance during his senate confirmation hearings. His response was brilliant and immensely Christian. In 2001 he said; "Senator, it is against my religion, to impose my religion upon anyone."
