In 4GW, primary loyalties shift away from the state–someone’s native
state or one to whch they have immigrated–to a wide variety of other
things, including religions, races and ethnic groups, and cultures.
Immigrants who do not acculturate are especially likely to become Fourth
Generation threats, because they probably will not give their loyalty
to a state whose culture is not their own (and to which they may be
Measures such as those Trump proposed vis-a-vis Islamics will be
routine in a world of Fourth Generation war. Any state that wants to
survive will have to take them, and stronger actions as well. If a
population becomes a base for 4GW on a state’s soil, that state may have
to expel them. There may be no other way for the state to perform its
primary duty, maintaining order. Any state that cannot maintain
order–safety of persons and property–will disappear.
Cultural Marxism forbids us to acknowlege any of these realities,
which is why culturally Marxist politicians (Democrats actually believe
the stuff; Republicans are too cowardly to challenge it) and
institutions such as the New York Times editorial page have
frothed at the mouth over Mr. Trump’s entirely reasonable proposals.
Cultural Marxism says all cultures are wonderful, peaceful, “vibrant”
sources of enlightenment, except our own culture, Western culture, which
is evil and oppressive. Defend ourselves against another culture? The
very notion horrifies the cultural Marxists; we are instead to embrace
it even as it cuts our throats. Cultural Marxism’s goal,
after all, from Gramsci and Lukacs onward, has been the destruction of
Western culture and the religion from which it grew, Christianity.
Mr. Trump’s proposals do not indicate he has studied 4GW. I would
guess he has probably never heard the term. His reactions are
instinctive. But they are sound. They reflect reality. If elected, he
can leave the theory to the leaders of his Defense Department (we can
hope he chooses leaders who do know the theory). He would need only to
keep the same instincts under the barrage of conemnation they will bring
from the establishment. So far, he seems pretty good at that.
The degree to which the establishment has abandoned all grasp of reality was shown last week in Time
magazine’s choice of Angela Merkel as Person of the Year. Merkel will
go down in history as Germany’s poisoner, the person who flooded what
was a safe, orderly country with carriers of the 4GW bacillus. That, of
course, is exactly what cultural Marxism demands, so she is a hero to Time and the rest of the establishment.
Meanwhile, the more Trump insists on confronting cultural Marxism,
a.k.a. political correctness, and urges us to face reality, the more his
poll numbers go up. The public, it seems, both here and in Europe,
want leaders whose feet are planted in the real world. No wonder the
shrieks and cries of the cultural Marxists sound ever more shrill.
Ideology has no deadlier enemy than reality.
