The Geopolitical Tectonic Shift, Part 4 – Adverse Side Effects of TGTS

Lo and behold. I have returned from procrastinitis purgatory..

If you’re new to the blog, our subject is The Geopolitical Tectonic Shift (TGTS), as explained in the previous posts. Simply put, the West Is Sinking, the East is Rising, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. It marks the end of the 500 yr old European Empire.

A great deal has happened since my last post. The most important point I’d like to make about recent developments is that they are symptoms, manifestations, indicators of TGTS. Led by the neocons/neolibs of the Anglophone countries, blindly followed by the Eurolemmings, they can be regarded as WMDs, Weapons of Mass Distraction, serving to maintain the fantasy of “Full Spectrum Dominance.”

They take various forms, mostly derived from post-modernism, which is an anti-philosophical, nihilistic school of thought that rejects objective truth while replacing science with scientism (or, in effect, Science with $cience). The idea is that narrative trumps empirical analysis, that emotion triumphs over reason. It is a perversion of the Western Enlightenment into a fanatical individualism that deifies Ego. And, of course, the materialist worship of money. So it goes in what Putin aptly called the Empire of Lies.

To enumerate some of post-modernism’s progeny:

  1. Political Correctness
  2. DIE (Diversity, Inclusion, Equity)
  3. Big Pharma vaccines Good, anything that actually works Bad
  4. Green Energy, Net Zero (Fossil fuels, CO2 Bad)
  5. White Supremacism (esp. White heterosexual males Bad)
  6. Critical Race Theory (CRT)
  7. Radical Feminism
  8. Censorship Good, Wrongthink Bad
  9. Pornography, Pedophilia Good .. Morality, Ethics Bad
  10. LBGTQalphabetsoup
  11. Wokism: Pronouns Good.. Common Sense Bad
  12. Identitarianism Good: Humanism, Universalism Bad
  13. Narrative Good, History Bad
  14. Antifa Good: Real Anti-fascism Bad

I could go on, but you get the idea. It reminds me of preacher Aimee Semple McPherson, founder of the Foursquare Gospel Church about a hundred years ago. (Nowadays it’s bigger than ever.) She disappeared with a lover, as a nosy journalist discovered. After returning she came up with some cock and bull story to dispel the unflattering rumors. As she put it, “It’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.” A true heroine of Clown World.

George Orwell and Aldous Huxley saw it coming..
