A New World is Coming

 

And this new world will start by throwing out the old. That will be their initial mistake and what will follow are the same follies which we thought behind humanity. These youthful and exuberant individuals who make up the Nuevo-Left will throw out everything from before because they are the beginning and whatever came before was from the old and to be discarded. Unfortunately, we can use one item from the old to predict the future with these wunderkind at the head, and it comes from the pen of George Santayana who wrote, “Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” The last sentence has spawned a plethora of similar phrases all imparting the same wisdom and cautionary warning. But this too is from the past, from the first decades of the last century, so obviously it is old thought and thus rendered worthless. The United States Constitution, it is written on parchment, obviously far too old to be useful in this new age. The Bible too is from back in the Stone Age or close to it, according to new-think, thus it must be discarded as just a collection of useless adages. The Nuevo-Left is far too aware and advanced in thought to require such lessons as they are fashioning a whole new age, a new world where the fallacies of the past will be corrected. We can hardly wait for their new reality and can only wonder what they will have in mind for fossils such as ourselves.

 

This rant came as a response from a number of articles but we were put beyond the cusp and into committing our screed to post was, “Banned! High School Students Drop National Anthem,” which was just the last straw. The line which most closely resembled the reasoning was not so much the fact that there were “offensive words” and a reference to, “the hireling and slave,” but that the Star Spangled Banner, the American National Anthem, was written, and let us quote, “This song was written in 1814. That was written 204 years ago. Imagine all the traditions and laws that have changed.” Imagine that, two-hundred and four whole years ago, like even before television and the Internet. It is just so, you know, old. How could something that old have any relevance today. And while we are dating stuff, you know that thing, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, like those things are even older, written in the 17’s, the century before the National Anthem, so like useless, right? Whatever we do we should immediately publish a modern worded Bible and try and pass it off as like really new and kewl before they order them all destroyed for being from before paper and pencil. This New Age Nuevo-Left probably would immediately reject anything written in stone, so guess the Ten Commandments are out, even if the original copy chiseled by Moses could be found. This Nuevo-Left are set upon making a clean start and making this new civilization in their imagined perfect image. This should be absolutely wonderful.

 

Let’s see if we can make some hunch driven guesses as to the new rules, the Nuevo-Left will place on society. The first thing we should realize is that these of the Nuevo-Left are of that age and outlook that they know absolutely everything and have so much more knowledge than their adult cohabitants on planet Earth. The Nuevo-Left have looked at the world they are about to inherit and all they see is a mess which is obviously the result of the ancient ideas and laws under which it has been forced to operate. They are ready and willing to impart their great wisdom and correct all the errors of the past. All that is required for the world to become perfect is for all of us to surrender our free will and allow the Nuevo-Left, who, by the way, have a good number of adults who feel the same as them, to impose their will by any and all means available to them. And we need to fully understand, it is all about the feelings. You ask about thinking, well, that only comes in play when feelings fail, and how can good feelings which take everybody and their real needs into consideration ever fail? After all, look where thinking has gotten the world. The world could be improved so much if only feelings were the driving force as feelings are what it is all about. Those of the Nuevo-Left claim that the problems in the world today are caused by a few simply concepts, capitalism and the quest for monetary gains, the laws are rooted in the past and the results of every mistake of history, the system is unfair and leaves so many without while a small minority have most of the wealth. The way things are cements most people to live in the same social strata as they are born to, there is still way too much racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, ableism, xenophobia and the divisions that keep people apart, especially again racism plus other problems caused by nationalism, religion and other things such as identity politics.

 

Then there is one huge problem which has to be solved before things can ever get better, the unenlightened cannot be left in control. Who are the unenlightened? The unenlightened are those who disagree with our new leadership under the Nuevo-Left who are the truly enlightened and honestly know what is best for our society and have all the solutions if only they were to be given the opportunity to repair our world. There is a solution for the poor unenlightened, those who are stuck in the old world and just cannot let go of their unproductive identities, their refusal to let go of politics, of religion, of nationality or of any of the plethora of things which made up the old and broken world. The Nuevo-Left will help these poor unfortunates who have identity difficulties or are stuck with old-thought; they have an education program which will disabuse them of their old-thought and educate them making them accepting of the new-think of the Nuevo-Left.

 

Big Brother is Watching

 

All that remains to do is to hand over complete and total control to the youth with all the answers, the youth of the Nuevo-Left. They have all the answers to every problem. They know how to end wars, make militaries illegal enforced by the United Nations, right? How do we end poverty, redistribution of wealth with equal pay for any and all work. How do we end racism, reeducation until those stuck in hate learn acceptance. Actually, reeducation ends up being the solution to a whole litany of problems. If this sounds familiar like it was tried again and again throughout history, out with the old, in with the new and anything from reeducation to simply elimination of those who are part of the old. We have seen it in books such as Brave New World and 1984 which ends with the line that says it all, “I love Big Brother.” We have seen it in recent history with the Soviet Union and the Stalinist purges or in Communist China with Mao’s Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution and the ensuing Great Leap Forward. But this idea is not new as we saw this in the Roman Empire where those the Romans desired to destroy, they dispersed and enslaved as they did the Carthaginians and the Judeans (Jews). For the record, it did not quite work with the Judeans as they managed to retain their identity. Other examples of the new attempting to drive out the old claiming to have the solution to everything include the Nazis and their concept of the superior race, the Inquisition where they were to purify the world by imposing the only perfect religion, the Caliphate which spread from the Arabian Peninsula and continues to this day following the Quranic demand to spread Islam until all have surrendered to Allah and numerous other attempts at world conquest placing the governance, leadership and supremacy of the conquerors over those defined as the others. There is a concept in the Western and developed worlds that world conquest is an impossibility and that the world may eventually meld with time and agree to a new world order which oversees all but their belief is not universal and there are numerous centers of power in the world who still believe that they are destined to conquer the world and be its masters. Only the future will tell whether or not world conquest is possible and if such does come to fruition, then will it be by force of will, force of an idea, force of weaponry or some force completely unforeseen by our current knowledge. The one thing we can tell the Nuevo-Left, their ideas of a utopia if only they are given complete control of the governance, power, and enforcement will fail either because they were fortunately never given the opportunity or because they were able to take control of the United States and Europe, unified them under their sole governance. The only way the Earth will ever come under a singular rule will be voluntarily and very likely after humanity has spread to inhabit the cosmos and not before. But expect the Nuevo-Left to continue their revolutionary tactics expecting that the society will see the wisdom of their ideas and beg them to take control as they will not be given this power willingly and should they take it by other means they can expect to face great amounts of resistance. Let’s all hope that any changes come peaceably and through the will of the people and not by any other means for the sake of all the people.
