I have been posting a lot about my upcoming book Live Not By Lies, though it wont be published until September, because events of the past ten days have validated its thesis beyond anything I could have expected. Its a book that tells Americans especially American Christians to prepare themselves for soft totalitarianism at the hands of the woke, who are taking over established institutions. It offers lessons from those who endured Soviet, and Soviet bloc, hard totalitarianism. As I was finishing the book this spring, I worried that the thesis might be hard for many Americans to accept.

Then the past two weeks happened. If you, as a conservative, and especially a conservative Christian, dont understand how quickly the Woke within institutions including corporations can and will force you to say and affirm things you dont believe on pain of being a jobless outcast, you are willfully blind.
So far I have been able to avoid participating anything Woke at my job. I have a feeling that will be ending soon.
I'm not sure if I would push this idea very far, but I feel like we're circling back on a lot of that. Should we have a new Bolshevik revolution? Right here this time? Big Flu epidemic, cultural debasement like Weimar all over again, blatant racist policies on the Left (BLM this time), I see a tremendous, desperate push toward Progressivism and Global Government.
I think Trump is the last hope. We need the Great Awakening. We need to drain the swamp and kill Globalism very, very dead. I think 2020 is the year. Either we choose a better path this time, or we get ready to re-live all the worst parts of the 20th century all over again.
It's important to fight back.
Many Soviet dissidents wrote about this. Every time you force a man to say something he believes is a lie, he learns to hate you. You can coerce people with enough threats, bullying, and consequences of poverty to say something. But all you did was create someone who despises you.
They think they are winning. They are creating an army of people who bitterly oppose them.
You could kind of see that I Drew Brees’ statement recanting his earlier position regarding never kneeling during the national anthem. He never saw the firestorm coming. Wouldn’t surprise me a bit if he put his retirement papers I. Rather than report to training camp.
There was a very good interview in the WSJ with an American scholar of the Soviet Union and Russian history. The parallels are stunning.
Its behind a paywall but I think it will be openly available in a couple of days. Ill try to post it if so.
They kid themselves they are making converts.
