For the fourth time since 1900, the West is trying to commit suicide. This time it's not training battalions of goose-stepping young men to put their bodies in the cold and soggy trenches of Germany, France, and Russia, as in World Wars I and II. But just like the Cold War, in which Soviet imperialism almost conquered the West, the old capitals of Paris, Berlin, and London are still spreading the political plague of Marxist totalitarianism, totally heedless of the historic catastrophes it brought to Russia, China, and all the rest. In a purely intellectual way, this fact is so idiotic, so self-destructive that no sane person expected it after the clean defeat of Soviet and Chinese communism twenty years ago. It is objectively insane.
And yet, today's Western media have never stopped working to destroy the very societies they claim to serve. We have the most pathogenic media in history -- they create social divisions, ethnic hostilities, massive deliberate misunderstandings of the real causes of economic despair, and political "solutions" from the very people who created those problems in the first place.

The suicide of civilizations is an interesting intellectual study.
Only when it is not happening to you. Our situation requires action, not study. But most of us (and I include myself) are studying, but not acting. That may change soon.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
Those that are acting right now are being pilloried by those who will soon have to act, but still have their blinders on.
They are truly shocked and outraged that the retiring leaders that got Western Civilization into the mess Lewis described, are being openly rejected by the rude and disrespectful people that have decided to act right now.
Whitaker Chambers exposed the Writer’s Guild as teeming with Communists.
At first, I thought ‘pathological’ would be the description.
On second thought, ‘pathogenic’ is perfect.
“If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
Winston Churchill, 1941
The only people who trust the pathogenic media are the wishful thinkers,rainbows and unicorns for all.
An interesting intellectual study, yes. And think about it: half the population has an IQ below 100. That’s not very smart. Nefarious elements learn very quickly how to exploit them and do it very well.
Excellent article! I hope the enemedia reads this.
This was a fantastic read. I forwarded to all my friends. Thanks for posting this. Trying times lie ahead.
Which is why granting the universal franchise is but a step in the suicide of a society.
...and why a fool is more dangerous than a scoundrel. For one thing, there are more of them, and, for another, scoundrels find them oh-so-easy to manipulate.
