What is the point of winning the war against progressives?

I think the point of winning the war of ideas against progressives, a struggle not against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities, is nothing more grandiose than turning the state into Purgatory so no more revolutionary leaders can turn it into a genocidal Hell. 

An Emperor’s job was not to solve all his subjects’ problems, but to restrain the Antichrist by simply occupying the throne. 

Then each subject could exercise his free will to strive for Heaven, or not.
