The Collectivist Mind Game, Part 3: Demonizing Human Nature

Part 1: Demonizing the Non-Compliant Part 2: Demonizing the Opposition If Robert Heinlein were to write The Moon today (see Part 1), there’s no doubt his notion of the future oppressive global government on Earth would be very different.  With such forces at play, the free-market revolution in Lunar colonies would likewise be fought by […]

The Collectivist Mind Game, Part 2: Demonizing the Opposition

Part 1: Demonizing the Non-Compliant Most modern-day leftists in Western countries have abandoned the idea of a violent revolution, having replaced it with “the long march through the institutions” as part of the culture war to transform the society through cultural hegemony.  Instead of commanding firing squads, they play mind games of manipulative illusions, in […]

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Jeffrey Lord on 12.16.11 @ 5:11PM Our friend Andrew McCarthy from National Review has made a very interesting discovery in the piece I linked to on Ron Paul’s newsletters, to which he has kindly alerted me.
