Attitudes and the Thought Police: opponents of Leftism cannot be subversive

*

New Leftism, post-mid-sixties Leftism, has been about shaping 'attitudes' - and this leads directly to the Thought Police

For Leftism it is not sufficient to go along with the ideology, because Leftists know from their own behaviour that this leaves the door wide-open to subversion.

*

Leftists work strategically by feigning compliance to religion, to traditional morality, to beauty and truth; but their private attitudes conflict with with all these, and they work in a thousand - mostly indirect (hence deniable) - ways to subvert, mock, undermine, eventually invert religion, traditional morality, truth and beauty.

*

This is what Leftists do - and they suppose that this is what their opponents do - and this is why Leftists always end-up adopting Thought Police tactics, and persecuting people on the basis of their inferred attitudes - but they are wrong.

*

They are wrong because subversion is destruction, and destruction only works in one direction.

The opponents of Leftism - the true opponents - are constructive, not subversive; builders not destroyers; makers not wreckers. 

The opponents of Leftism cannot use subversion, because there is nothing in Leftism for them to subvert: or, rather, subverting actually-existing Leftism only leads to more extreme and abstract Leftism.

*

So the true opponents of Leftism cannot be strategically and covertly subversive in the way of Leftists; and their private attitudes are irrelevant to their effectiveness; because (unlike subversion) the process of construction, building, making must be, can only be, explicit.

*

This means that the Leftist focus on correct attitudes, and the use of Thought Police tactics to enforce the required attitudes, approaches fairly close to being pure evil - since it is unnecessary, ineffective, a projection - hence in practice an excuse for envy, hatred, cruelty and open-ended destruction of The Good, wherever it may be found or merely suspected to exist.

Of course, this does not in any way serve the interests of Leftists, since they will themselves be consumed by the chaos they foment: but that fact merely confirms (for a Christian) the demonic motivations of Leftism: a hatred of humanity which aims at nothing short of universal and permanent misery.
