We’re on the road to ruin, led by boneheads  

-

OUR globalist elites stand accused of many things: Cowardice, arrogance, authoritarianism, treachery, duplicity, spite.  

Each is fully deserved, of course. But there’s a missing brickbat. For above all, it takes a special kind of stupidity – real stupidity – to throw away something as precious as Western civilisation.  

This is not without irony. Our rulers take an overweening pride in their minds, and use this to intimidate the rest of us. But once they’ve completed their ruinous project, the verdict of history won’t be kind. Then, those crania will be considered so many empty voids. When future historians sit in sober judgment, any cloak of grey-matter respectability – the public school, the professorship, the Government position – will count for naught.  

It shouldn’t need repeating, but by accident of birth we live in (for all its faults) the most successful form of society known to man. We’ve inherited the richest culture, based on Judaeo-Christian values. And yet, when they’re not actively hastening its destruction, our leaders moronically contrive to manage its decline.  

This applies not least to Britain, which has bequeathed more wisdom and goodness to the world than any other country.  

Granted, this operation entails cunning and co-ordination, and (for now) brings self-advancement. In that narrow sense, our leaders know exactly what they’re doing.  

But step back and consider what is being lost – the nation-state, our shared heritage, common law liberties. This requires, more than anything, imbecility on an epic scale. It seems anomalous. But then again, why shouldn’t these things coexist? ‘Clever’ people make dumb decisions all the time.  

Davos Man – Justin Trudeau the prime example – operates on a higher plane to the rest of us. Or thinks he does. Treat the trucker hoi polloi with respect? He’d rather go bald.  

No, the Canadian protester is too ignorant(and of course ‘racist’) to be legitimised with civilised dialogue, much less concession. And so Trudeau continues along his short-term-ruthless, long-term-brainless, path.  

Meanwhile, these working-class heroes who peacefully – gloriously – occupied the streets of Ottawa are better informed, through research and personal experience, on Covid-19 and the impact of Covid measures than most of his cabinet. And, like their brothers and sisters elsewhere, they speak this truth to power, with an integrity shaming of their alleged superiors.    

It’s the same with Biden. In the eyes of his administration, America, a shining city on a hill, must be trampled into a modest mound. This requires a pathological vindictiveness and self-hatred, to be sure. But much more so, vast reserves of dim-wittedness; as it happens, of the kind Trump and his supporters are routinely credited with.        

Our rulers, backed by their media lackeys, believe they can get away with this. The little people aren’t allowed to be right – especially when they are.  

But the cat is out of the bag. If the ‘experts’ can be so wrong about a respiratory virus, or a great country’s legacy, what else can they get – have they got – wrong? Inconveniently, dissenters tend to trust their own eyes and ears. With official narratives crumbling, deference towards officialdom will be in ever-shorter supply.     

Scrutiny of the regnant anti-Western worldview shows it to be laughably simplistic. And there’s good reason for this. When ‘West is bad, non-West is good’ is your mantra, it obviates the need for any serious study. You needn’t bother with nuance, with learning about the iniquities of other societies or empires. Tear down that statue – it’s white colonialism wot dunnit.  

‘No man who knows aught, can be so stupid to deny that all men were naturally born free’, wrote Milton. And there, if needed, is confirmation of what we’ve learnt about our freedom-hating masters over recent years.  

When all is said and done, these haughty overlords, possessors (they presume) of elevated intelligence, don’t know aught. Perhaps we should proclaim it more often.
