From Zippy Catholic "in fact liberalism is rationally incoherent, all the way down "
I regard this as a vital insight - at least it was for me; the opponents to the Left have wasted far too much time and energy - and have distracted themselves from their proper job - by trying and failing (repeatedly) to encapsulate the Left's essential positive doctrines; which don't exist, but mutate for expediency.
The way to understand the Left is that it is oppositional.
But this is seldom understood. Why? Because what the Left ultimately opposes is Christianity: real Christianity and not the hollowed shell of the modern mainstream Christian churches (institutions that have as much to do with Christianity as colleges have to do with education, or the European Union legal system has to do with justice).
And this carries the implication that the true (covert) leaders of the Left necessarily believe-in the reality of Christianity - otherwise they could not oppose it.
Yep - the Leftist leadership believe-in the supernatural reality of Christianity: believe it and reject it.
This carries the further implication - utterly unacceptable and incomprehensible to secular people - that the Left cannot be understood unless you personally believe in the reality of demons - I mean supernatural, purposive, personified, active opponents of God's plan of salvation.
I'm afraid that it is necessary to believe in demons (immortal evil spirits) to account for the Left's strategic destructiveness extending over many human generations; and the cohesiveness of purpose behind so many persons and institutions - despite the inadeequacy of perceptible systems of coordination and control.
Those for whom demons are ridiculous nonsense - and who cannot ally themselves with God's plans - cannot understand and cannot genuinely oppose the Left.
This does not leave many people in the West who do genuinely oppose the Left - and this is a fact: albeit an regrettable one.
