We hear a lot about “Woke” – which of course means asleep, to the ugly history of communism. The latter being what “Woke” is meant to achieve, by the people using the asleep to get them there without telling them where they’re headed.
Until they get there.
These asleep people are the same kinds of people Lenin called useful idiots, back in his day. Which is to say, people who were asleep to what Lenin was after. They were awakened to this after Lenin got done using them. (The Soviet KGB man, Yuri Bezmenov, who defected to the U.S. back in the ’70s, tried to wake Americans up but most went back to sleep.)
Now much of America slumbers, though it shuffles – and often riots, too. It is the wakefulness of the walking dead, a TV series that isn’t about the handful of people who flee the herd – just the right word – but about the herd, an animated somnolence forever in search of blood. It moves but there is no life. It is chaos and terror directed – but by whom?
They believe that we live in what is lately and aggressively styled a “democracy” – in which a private company with the interesting name of Dominion (as in the having) controls the elections by having the power to determine who is selected. It denies that the people have any right to see the workings within the black boxes. They have no right to know and so they don’t know. Many don’t care to know.
They do not mind that the elections are now . . . “proprietary.”
Which is to say, “our democracy” is the private property of Dominion.
The asleep are untroubled because – so far – the selections have gone the way they like. Just the same as the asleep cheered when Lenin concluded peace with Germany, ended a hated war and promised the useful idiots “bread” and “land.”
They ended up getting neither – and more.
Our selections have become what they became in Lenin’s Russia; they may awaken – too late! – to the value of elections not under Dominion.
The asleep are very much opposed to free speech. That is, speech that disturbs their sleep. Lenin made good use of the same perturbations. They are put to sleep by speech that soothes. The speech that tells them what they want to hear, unaware (being asleep) that it is all they are allowed to hear. That those who allow it have to power to keep them from hearing anything that might awaken them – to the fact that they are asleep. And that will be a rude awakening for them.
But it is not only the “Woke” who are asleep.
For instance, the people opposed to ending the intergenerational mutual impoverishment regime styled Social Security – who at the same time deride what they regard as “welfare” and “entitlements.” Who say they support the concept of private property yet bristle when someone not asleep says to them that private property is an oxymoron when one must beg leave of the state as regards how it may be used – and when one is obliged to make regular and never-ending payments to the state as the price of being allowed to retain conditional possession of it.
They are the same people who are awake to the danger of what goes on in state-controlled schools yet continue to send their kids to them – and defend the extortion of their neighbors to endlessly pay for them.
They are awake – or so they think – to the dangers of “drunk” drivers, “speeders” and “terrorists.” But oblivious to the danger of the state that “keeps them safe” from these incidental threats.
How many are awake to the danger presented by ceding control of our money to a private banking cartel? Most people are unconscious as regards this pilfering of their pockets and the manipulation of their entire lives – while grumbling about the trivial-in-comparison pilfering performed by the state, in the form of the taxes it collects each April.
They are asleep to the fact that the Constitution was the result of a conspiracy – not a theory, but a fact – of a handful of men who met in secret to conjure it and substitute it for the Articles of Confederation, viewed as “weak” (which it was, on purpose) by the conspirators.
Who wanted something . . . stronger.
Do they know that several of their reverenced “founding fathers” were as uninterested in liberty – for the people – as Lincoln was in government of the people, by the people and for the people? How many have been snapped out of their slumber by reading about the Alien and Sedition Acts, as a for-instance?
Instead, they gaze with glassy eyes at the alabaster image of Lincoln – sitting on his throne like Jupiter Optimus Maximus, both stone hands resting on the bundled fasces . . . regarding him as the savior of their “democracy.”
Maybe it’s best to have a long nap.
