IN THE LATE 1960'S WE HAD AND AGGRESSIVE TYRANNY IN THE USSR, WOODSTOCK AND RACE RIOTS AND FREE SEX AND LOVE, DRUGS...
A GENERAL ATTACK BY POSTMODERNISM ON TRADITIONAL JUDEO-CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION.
THE SAME CONFLUENCE OF EVENTS TODAY - AND FOR THE SAME REASONS:
TODAY'S NYTIMES FRONT PAGE: GAY MARRIAGE AND RIOTS...
POSTMODERNISM ATTACKS CIVILIZATION AND THEN THE CRETINS, EVIL-DOERS, AND THEIR RUNNING DOGS AND LACKEYS STEP INTO THE VOID...
WITHOUT THE VALUES AND INSTITUTIONS WHICH HAVE MEDIATED AND MODERATED HUMAN BEHAVIOR FOR 3000 YEARS, CHAOS REIGNS...
POSTMODERN LEFTISTS FOMENT THAT CHAOS IN THE HOPE THAT THEY CAN SEIZE POWER IN THE AFTERMATH. IT'S THEIR GRAMSCIAN AGENDA.
AND WITH OBAMA IN THE WHITE HOUSE, IT'S ONCE AGAIN WORKING...
THE SECOND COMING
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
